The Tidings of Christmas Suite is awesome! It includes a stamp set, dies, designer series paper and ribbon. New to the Annual Catalogue this year, I am really appreciating the versatility of this bundle and how easy it is to create cards and projects with these products.
The Tiding & Trimmings stamp set has 18 stamps that include images and greetings. You can stamp a stocking, star, bow or foliage and cut the stamped image out with the Christmas Tidings Dies. Or, do as I did for these cards, and stamp only the greeting letting the die cut pieces create the focal highlights. I am especially fond of the gorgeous star which comes in two different sizes. I just had to use it on every card in this trio of Christmas cards.
The final items in this suite are the Tidings of Christmas 6″ x 6″ designer series paper and the Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Chevron Weave Ribbon which you can spot on two of the cards as well. This ribbon was soft and easy to work with and I love deep green colour.
If you are looking for a new Christmas set of stamps and dies, I highly recommend this bundle.
Shop online and save. If you don’t have a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to use with the dies, consider purchasing a Starter Kit. Purchase the kit for only $100 including shipping and GST, choose the machine as your included product plus receive lots of other demonstrator only perks.

In addition to the colours included in the paper – Cherry Cobbler, Sahara Sand, Soft Succulent, Evening Evergreen and Misty Moonlight – I opted to add Copper Foil Sheets. I love how even a little copper adds to the festive feel of the cards.
The Tidings of Christmas designer series paper has lots of patterns to pick from. They are all on the smaller size making it easy to mix and match designs. I opted for a bolder pattern paired with a smaller, more subtle pattern for this card and the next.
Don’t you love how intricate this star die is? And you can use it year round for birthdays, anniversaries and more. Here I mounted it on a larger card stock star which is also included with the dies, There are also pieces of various foliage that can be cut out as this set has 15 dies in total. I tucked a bunch or two behind the greetings on each of the cards.
