The Christmastime Is Here Suite will be available as an entire collection, as a Stamp & Die bundle as well as some individual items. So if you love the DSP as much as I do then you will be able to stock up and create a whole pile of Christmas Rose projects.

I have a few cards to share with you today.....I know I know, but seriously this Suite was so easy to create with I just couldn't stop. The large die that is designed to cut the stamped image also die cuts one of the images from the Designer Series Paper. And an added bonus is the other floral images are easy to fussy cut! So you see, it was super easy to create this collection of cards as a lot of the work is the stunning DSP. Which makes it extremely versatile for all level crafters. Beginner, Casual and Avid crafters can let their creativity shine as there are no predesigned samples.

The first card I have to share uses a fussy cut image from the DSP. A few extra roses were fussy cut and have been added with dimensionals directly on top of the matching part of the image for a bit of depth. I started by gold heat embossing the sentiment onto my whisper white card front. I then tore the card front diagonally. Next, Sahara Sand card stock has been embossed using the Pinewood Planks Folder and adhered to the Thick Whisper White card base. 

I then adhered the torn card front to the embossed layer and before fixing the fussy cut Rose cluster I have added some Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and the edge of the Gold Ribbon underneath. To finish the card I added a couple of the Glitter Enamel Dots.

The next card is basically the same as the first. I have changed the orientation and therefore also where the heat embossed sentiment sits. Using the same fussy cut image and torn edge card front, the only other difference aside from orientation is the ribbon added underneath - this time replacing the Tulle Polka Dot with Whisper White Flax Ribbon along with the "other" edge of the Gold Ribbon cut for the previous card. 

The third card has a completely different layout with a strip of DSP running down the left hand side, lined with Gold Foil card and then the embossing paste card front. Using the new Decorative Masks, I have applied white embossing paste to the card front with the "dotty" mask. I love the texture embossing paste gives and seeing I tend to favour whisper white card fronts, it adds interests and takes your cards to the next level.

I have left the Gold Ribbon "whole" for this card but have also added what was left from stripping the edges of the ribbon to make the two previous cards. I call this Ribbon Fluff and its easy to get by simply removing the edging of the ribbon and pulling out the remaining threads. Use it like metallic thread and voila you have another look.

Next up I have created a few little note cards that fit into the new GOLD Pizza Boxes. The Gold Foil accents in the DSP coordinates perfectly with the boxes. These note cards have been made using the coordinating dies to create the card fronts or embellish.

For this note card Gold Glimmer card stock has been die cut using the pretty border die and tucked under the Gold Heat Embossed sentiment.  A strip of DSP has adhered to the embossed card front along with a single fussy cut Rose image.

The next card has a card front created with the detailed lattice die, cut twice from whisper white card and adhered to the card front. The DSP has been die cut using the pretty frame die with fussy cut images adhered over the whisper white border die cut used to cut the Glimmer Card stock in the note card above.

DSP has been adhered to the card base with a white embossed card front added over the top. I have used the Tufted Embossing Folder for this one. A strip of the same DSP used for the card base has been added along with some Gold Ribbon and Whisper White die border die cut. The same fussy cut Rose used in the first note card was used for this one - just swapping sides from Right to the Left hand side above the Heat Embossed-Fussy Cut sentiment. 

The last little note card uses the elongated hexagon die to cut the DSP and create the background. Vellum and Gold Ribbon sit underneath the fussy cut image which has been adhered using  dimensionals.

That is all from me today. I hope you have enjoyed what I’ve shared and I’ll hope you’ll enjoy this new Product Suite, as much as I have. Seriously, you won’t want to sit on the fence on this one. Being Bang on Trend and offering such fabulous coordinating products for the price, you’ll want to order early. Demonstrators can order from October 1st and Customers from November 1st.
