Stampin' Up! Number of Years is Retiring!

Number-of-years-anniversary-card

Stampin' Up! Number of Years is retiring and it is great for making anniversary cards.  The companion to this set, Large Number Framelits,  is also retiring!

BIG occasions need BIG numbers. Choose an event—birthday, anniversary, new school year—and add a number for instant personalization. Buy it once, use it often. Great on its own or combined with images from other sets for different looks.

This is a Two-Step Stampin’ set. Combine individual stamps to build the final image you want in the colors you want.

Quantity: 29 photopolymer stamps

The bigger, the better when it comes to numbers. Create large die-cut numbers in seconds with Framelits dies and the Big Shot. Framelits’ open design allows you to place them where you want for precise cutting. Layer several die cuts or use them individually.

* 11 dies
* Largest image: 3/4" x 3-1/8"

Here is one of the anniversary cards that I made recently with these retiring Stampin' Up! products.  Let's take a look at the video.

Click here to see this anniversary card video tutorial on You Tube.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Pink Pirouette card stock is cut  5 1/5" x 8 1/2" and 5 1/4" x 4".
  • You'll need approximately 4" x 4" piece of Soft Sky for die cutting.
  • You'll need two pieces of Whisper White card stock: 4" x 4" for stamping and die cutting and 1/2" x 4" for stamping sentiment.

Cardmaking-tip-choosing-colors-layers

In today's project video tutorial, you'll see the thought process behind choosing colors and layers for handmade cards.  This process varies from card maker to card maker but I wanted to share my thinking in hopes that it may be helpful.

Have coordination across product lines is so very helpful when creating.  Let's take a look at the video to see the process.

Tips-cardmaking-choosing-colors-layers

Lisa's Inklings:

  • If you are using designer paper on your creation, let the colors in your selection lead your choices for embellishments, inks, card stock, etc.
  • When in doubt, limit your color choices to 2-3 colors.
  • Remember that contrast is important to make your layers/elements stand out unless you want a monochromatic look.
