OSAT Blog Hop | Pretty In Pink with Playful Alphabet Dies



Hello! Welcome to the Sweet Paper Studios blog and another round of the One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop! Today's theme is all about one of my favourite colours (and the title of one of my all-time favourite movies) - Pretty In Pink!

I am so excited to share today's projects because I am using my favourite Stampin' Up! colour, Melon Mambo. I have paired it with another pink, Flirty Flamingo. These two colours pair so nicely together. With them, I used our new Playful Alphabet Dies. The dies come on their own or can be purchased as a bundle with the Pattern Play Stamp Set.


These. Dies. Are. Amazing.


There are literally endless sentiment and design possibilities, though I chose to go with a thank you theme. I really had a friend or neighbour gift in mind and I think the design fits this quite well.



Here are the full card details:

  • Whisper White Card Base: 8.5" x 5.5"

  • Each strip of Melon Mambo and Flirty Flamingo Cardstock is 1/2" wide. I adhered a 6" x 1/2" strip to a 5.5" x 4-1/4" piece of Whisper White Cardstock and then trimmed down the edges. Then, I adhered the full piece to the card base using Stampin' Seal.

  • The letters from the Playful Alphabet Dies are adhered to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

  • I used the Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blend to add the speckles to the card.

  • I used the clear gems from the Flowers For Every Season Gems to finished of the card and adhered them using the Fine Tip Glue Pen.

To go along with the card, I made a cute coordinating gift box using the Mini Paper Pumpkin box from the new 2020 - 2021 Annual Catalogue. These boxes are so cute and can be decorated any way you want.


I used the same Melon Mambo and Flirty Flamingo colour coordination, but with the box I decide to offset the stripes with cute polka-dots! I mean, so cute, right?!


I used Melon Mambo as the main colour and covered all sides with the Melon Mambo Cardstock (except the bottom). Before doing so, I embossed all pieces using the Subtle Embossing Folder for some extra added detail.
