Snowfall Thinlits from Stampin' Up! 

I'm in love with a new promotion Stampin' Up! will begin offering November 1, and I'm sharing a sneak peek of one of the products today.  This is one set of promotion products you're going to want to add to your Holiday Wish List, so start planning now.  This promotion is called the Snowfall Showcase promotion, and today I'm sharing the beautiful Snowfall Thinlits that will be part of this wonderful showcase.  The Snowflake Showcase promotion includes two stamp sets, coordinating thinlits, embellishments,and White Velvet Paper.  I'll share more sneak peeks in the coming days.       

Snowflake Showcard will be available for a limited time beginning November 1

The basecard I'm using is Merry Merlot cardstock.  The next layer is Gold Foil Sheets. Then another layer of Merry Merlot.

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Showcase begins November 1, 2018

The beautiful snowflake is die cut from a Gold Foil Sheet, and I add another smaller snowflakes from the set and layered it in the center.  This die set includes a very large detailed snowflake and a multitude of different size snowflakes and snowflake swirls that will meet all your Holiday project needs. 

Snowflake Showcase Exclusive Products available for a limited time beginning November 1, 2018

The sentiment on these cards is from the Timeless Tidings stamp set, and it is heat embossed using Gold Embossing Powder.  

The ribbon is the lovely two-sided Merry Merlot & Copper 5/8" Reversible Ribbon.  I tried two different bows on the two cards below.  I'm not sure which treatment I like bests.  Of course photographing these Gold Foil snowflakes and gold embossed sentiments was extremely difficult, and doesn't begin to show the beauty of these gorgeous snowflakes.  You'll fall in love with this set once you see them in real life. 

Here's a look at some of the products that will become available as part of this Limited-time Snowflake Showcase promotion beginning November 1.  I didn't realize until I finished my photos for this post, that there are even more dies included on the backside of this die set!!  I'll show you more in future posts.

    2. I'm so sorry at the frustrated of not finding the Snowflake set, but the snowflake set--called Snowfall Thinlits-- was a special SU set of dies that was only available during the month of November 2018. Occasionally, SU will update the Clearance rack and include any left over inventory from these 0ne-month special offers, like this one, at a discount. They recently added the thinlits from an August special in December. I would expect it will be several months before any extra inventory of the Snowfall thinlits might be offered. Another snowflake option: There is one set of snowflake dies on the Year-End Closeout, called Blizzard Thinlits Dies. None of the snowflakes are as large as the one large snowflake in the Snowfall thinlits set, but I loved the fact that this dies cuts 17 snowflakes at one time! And its on sale. There's a video on line showing ways to use the Blizzard Thinlits Die. https://www.stampinup.com/ecweb/product/147902/blizzard-thinlits-die?dbwsdemoid=100492 It was originall $28.00 and is now on sale for $23.80 and it is called: Blizzard Thinlits Die, item #147902
