Have you ever wanted a stamp set but stopped yourself because it didn't have coordinating dies? I debated about getting the This Birthday Piggy set. It is so cute but I wished it had coordinating dies and then... Perfect Partners happened. YAY! What is Perfect Partners? Stampin' Up! debuted on September 1st, six new dies sets that coordinate with stamp sets that previously did not have dies. The stamp sets are Fresh Cut Flowers (AC page 65), This Birthday Piggy (AC page 55), Trimming the Tree (AC page 43), Waterfall Canyon (AC page 94), Apple Harvest (J-J Mini page 54), and the Yeti to Party (J-J Mini page 38). These dies are only available until September 30 or while supplies last. You can purchase just the dies or you can purchase the stamp set and the dies as a bundle and save 10%.
So, yes you guessed it I ordered the This Birthday Piggy stamp set and the coordinating Playful Piggy dies as a bundle.
I stamped the image using the Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad. The pig was colored using the Natural Tone Stampin' Blends. I used SU700 which is part of the Medium Light pair and SU 1000 part of the Light pair. The ears, nose and hooves were colored using the Light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends. The balloons were colored in Tahitian Tide and Parakeet Party Blends. The polka dotted one was done by first coloring in the balloon in Parakeet Party and then adding the Tahitian Tide dots.
The sentiment is from the Heavenly Hollyhocks set inked in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. The Basic White circle was cut using the Stylish Shapes dies. The dots are from the 2022-24 In Color Matte Decorative Dots and the twine is from the 2022-24 In Color Baker's Twine. The patterned paper is the 2022-24- In Color 6" x 6" DSP.
