Pop of Pink!

Pop of Pink is one of my favorite designer series papers!  All of the Stampin’ Up! papers are two-sided which means you have lots of patterns to choose from.  The sheet I’m using today has classic black and white dots on one side ~ a great background for any design.  Not only does this paper have black and white designs, but also the bright pink called Melon Mambo.

Because Stampin’ Up! has card stock that coordinates with all the designer series papers, it was easy to grab some Melon Mambo card stock and use it for this pretty die-cut flower.

This flower is from the Special Reason bundle.  The bundle includes both the dies and the stamp set, everything you need to make a fabulous card!

Pretty Pointer:  Sometimes after you’ve run a die through the Big Shot, it’s fun to leave some of the pieces IN the paper. This adds a bit of interest to your creation!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Happy stamping!!

The stamps give real texture and dimension to the tamped images. They are very detailed, and so pretty!

And, look at the beautiful die-cut flower and leaves!!  The dies in this Stylish Stems set are made to cut positive images, like these, and also negative images.  Below is a photo from Stampin’ Up! showing the negative image.

The sentiments in this set are sweet and small.  I love the way this “Happy Birthday” looks on this card.
