Stampin Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop - Christmastime Is Here

Hello everyone, Christmas Is Coming Early This Year!

We hope you’re ready to make this holiday season magical, because the Christmastime Is Here Suite is, well . . . here! This exclusive, limited-time collection of festive, floral coordinating products has everything you and your customers need to share love, joy, and creativity this holiday season. The 2019 Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team have had the privilege to have a play with this beautiful suite and I am so excited to share a few creations with you today.  

Before I share the details of each of my projects I'm sure you are just busting to know what is included in the suite. As you can see below the Christmastime is Here features the Christmas Rose Stamp Set and coordinating Roses Dies, Christmastime is Here Designer Series Paper, Gold Glitter Enamel Dots and Gold 1/4" Shimmer Ribbon. However since Christmas is that little bit extra special, the suite also includes something a little bit extra special, a Charming Rose Bracelet.

The first of my creations features this stunning floral arrangement from the Christmas Rose Stamp set that I have stamped in Versamark on Shimmery White cardstock and embossed with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. I then watercoloured the roses in Rococo Rose and Cherry Cobbler and the greenery in Soft Seafoam and Mossy Meadow. Now for those of you who are not fans of fussy cutting, the coordinating Roses Dies includes a die that not only die cuts this floral arrangement but also the same image on the Christmastime is Here DSP. Winning!!!!

Sticking with the main colours of the suite I went with a Cherry Cobbler card base with a touch of Gold Heat embossing. I then layered a piece of the Mossy Meadow patterned paper from the Christmastime is Here DSP and a couple of Gold Foil trellis die cuts underneath my Christmas Rose image and finally I finished the card off with the sentiment stamped on on of the label dies from the Roses Dies, a few scattered Gold Glitter Enamel Dots and some Gold 1/4" Shimmer Ribbon

With so many stunning rose images in the Christmastime is Here DSP, the fussy cutter in me just could not resist cutting out a few of the Cherry Cobbler and Poppy Parade roses for my second card.
Once again I have gone with a Cherry Cobbler card base and layered two patterns of DSP, and some
Whisper white trellis die cuts under the sentiment and an arrangement of die cut roses and finished it off with some Gold Shimmer Ribbon and Gold Glitter Enamel Dots.

Finally, it wouldn't be Christmas without some beautiful gift packaging and the Gold Mini Pizza
boxes from the 2019 Holiday Catalogue coordinate perfectly with this suite. This little gift package came together so incredibly quickly. Firstly I adhered some DSP to the top of the box and then I wrapped a belly band of the Mossy Meadow pattern DSP around the box before securing floral arrangement image fussy cut from the DSP, a trellis die cut and a sentiment label and some Gold Glitter Ribbon.

So now that you've seen all the pretty details I bet you are wondering how you can get your hands on the Christmastime is Here suite.
