How's everyone's weekend? Its already ready Sunday but I'm feeling less resentful about this since its a right before the Thanksgiving holiday - woot! Today I'm going to be showing you some plates that have released recently as I try to catch up with the never ending set of releases that always happen around this time of year! This post is for the new Pueen Cosmetics Stamping Lover Set and plates. This is Pueen's first foray into the rectangular plate game so let's take a look.
This is the kit that includes 4 plates each with a different type of "lover" theme.
And the Fancy Lover plate. You may recall in the Celebration Collection that Pueen already made giant version of a lace themed plate. So to me it seems like they made another lace plate thought its not a giant one like the last one. What's new? This one is rectangular and the images are somewhat different though not altogether novel. If your eye is sharp you will see some dupes from the MYL Kaleidoscope Collection and the Explorer Collection. I've also seen that lace pattern in the upper right hand corner on one of the new Marianne Nails plates. Still if you don't have any of the aforementioned plates of all the plates in Pueen's new collection I like this one the most.
So what do you think? On the whole I am not impressed. They are ok plates and knowing Pueen the way I know this company the etching will be flawless and the packaging will be lovely. Still with all these plates releasing companies need to try a little bit harder to remain novel if they want our precious pennies ;) Just saying after all the competition is incredibly fierce these days. Just look at the number of mats and stampers that have come out! In any case since each plate represents a collection there is potential for improvement going forward. These plates retail for $4.99 USD individually. If you purchase the set its $18.99 so a savings of a couple of bucks more than if you were going to buy all 4 individually. I haven't checked to see if these are on Amazon yet though I'm sure they will be eventually, but for now you can get the on the Pueen website if you're interested. If you have to have them I suggest waiting for Amazon since the shipping on the Pueen website can get crazy quickly with multiple items. Happy hunting and thanks for reading! See you next post....
