Pretty In Pink using Stampin’ Up! Products
Have you seen the new Stampin’ Up! ® Annual catalogue yet? It’s absolutely lovely! I had my catalogue launch event and all my ladies think it’s the best one they’ve seen and want everything! Glad I’m not alone there! Today’s project is using brand new Stampin’ Up! products combined with some that have carried over from the spring/summer catalogue!
I had to make birthday cards for twins this weekend. They are a boy and girl and I wanted different cards for them. I used Swirly Bird and Number of Years for the little girl and No Bones About it and Number of Years for the little boy. I really didn’t have a choice on colour scheme for the little girl – she LOVES pink!
I kept the sentiment the same but I didn’t want to just do a blue version of the card as I think twins tend to get given the same things and I wanted to give them each something a bit different – what do you think?
I used the retired 2-1/2″ circle punch as I am in between circle framelits having sold my retired ones in my BOGOF sale on Saturday! Oops bad planning there lol! 😉
The sentiment is from Number of Years and is not quite so rounded in real life, as you can see in the picture above, but I have a really easy trick for you!
As this is a photopolymer stamp set the stamps are quite flexible. I simply placed the negative of the circle I had punched out over an acrylic block and shaped the set to fit around the curve at the top! It stays in place for a while – plenty of time to stamp the sentiment a couple of times!
