One of the most versatile sets available this month as part of Stampin’ Up!’s birthday promotion is Big Bold Birthday. There sure is more to this set than meets the eye!
Many of the 13 stamps can be used together to create a single new image, a technique Stampin’ Up! calls “2-Step Stamping”. Off the top of my head, here are a few ideas:
- candles + box = birthday cake
- ribbon + box = present
- ribbon + ribbon (upside down) = flower
- happy birthday sentiment = stem on the flower, string for the balloon
You get the idea. This is also a great set to practice your kissing technique… now don’t laugh, you know I don’t mean to pucker up the lips. LOL. Kissing, as in inking up two stamps and pressing them together so that the image from one transfers to the other. Yeah, of course you knew what I meant, hehehe.
Here are some cards I made this week with Big Bold Birthday. Enjoy!
Until the end of October, a $20 purchase from the Stampin’ Up! catalogue will get you this set for the great-value price of $43.16!! Want more info? Email me and I’ll get back to you in a flash.
