Seems like most companies have released their Christmas line by now. I have not been impressed generally by the stamps I have seen. Perhaps it is because styles are emphasizing the simple motif, and that ends up being a tree, an ornament, a snowflake, and so on. The stamps are nice, just not so different than stuff I have acquired in years earlier.
The dies, however, are just fantastic; it has been hard to limit the purchase to just a few. I especially like those from Cheery Lynn, Impression Obsession, Memory Box, and Poppy Stamps.
If I were to name the winners, for me, it was classic images from Impression Obsession.
Best Die: Impression Obsession Fir Trees
Best Stamp: Impression Obsession Brush Tree Line
I can imagine using these two over and over, and not necessarily just in Christmas cards.
Okay, just my opinion. Which new holidays stamps and dies did you HAVE TO HAVE and did they meet your expectations? (I'm still game to buy a few more...)
