Okay, so I can't post access to the PDF file of the new stuff Stampin' Up! provided, but I can describe them the best I can and give some commentary...
Hostess sets. They showed us a few of the Level 2 and Level 3 hostess sets. They didn't show us all of them. Here's what we've seen...
FALL FLAIR - Level 2 set, 8 stamps - The flowers and leaves look sketched. A seven petaled, pointed flower. A Solid leaf, maple looking. A carnation looking line art flower. An arc of dots? A solid seven petaled flower. A line art maple looking leaf. A dandelion looking flower. Another line art leaf, oak maybe? Can you tell I don't know flowers and leaves????
DEER FRIENDS/ADORABLES AMIGOS - Level 2, 8 stamps - Available in both English and Spanish. Round stamps with and image and then words (lower case) that go around the image along the edge. Cute set. Looks like the Spanish set has the same wording. Although I can't tell which size, I am sure these fit into one of the circle punches. Here are the stamps:
- a cute Santa (head only) with the words "from the guy with the red suit"
- a snowman (head only) "season's greetings"
- a present "a little something"
- an angel (head only) "little angel"
- a Christmas tree "o christmas tree" (in lower case)
- a deer (head only) "deer friend"
- a swaddled baby with a shining star above "o holy night"
- a gingerbread man "sweet treat"
OCCASIONS COLLECTION/COLECCION DE MOTIVOS ESPECIALES - Level 2, 14 stamps - 12 word stamps, a small dotted cirle and a long stamp with 10 bold images each small enough to fit in the circle. The images are a carved pumpkin, a turkey, a Christmas tree, champagne glasses clinking, a heart, a shamrock, an Easter egg, a engagement/wedding ring, a six petaled flower. The words are (notice capitalization):
- st. patrick's
- to you
- new year
Hmmmmm. I don't know that I like that some of the words don't have capital letters like Christmas and Easter.
SERENE SPRING/SERENA PRIMAVERA - Level 2, 4 stamps - A cute floppy eared bunny in a basket with a daisy planted next to it and a little bird on the handle. It is realistic looking. Would make for great water coloring. A flower pot with a bird on it and a butterfly. Two sentiment stamps "A friend is what the heart needs all the time - Henry VanDyke" and "A kind word is like a spring day."
HAPPINESS ALWAYS - Level 2, 14 stamps -
WINDOW DRESSING/ADORNOS PARA VENTANAS - Level 3, 10 stamps
HOLIDAY HAPPENINGS BUNDLE - Level 3, Seasonal Sayings Rub-Ons, Seasonal Icons Stamp Artwork and Holiday Happenings Designer Series Paper
