The Stamp Review Crew | Number of Years Edition

Welcome to the next leg of the Stamp Review Crew Number Of Years stamp set blog hop. You have probably seen lots of fabulous ideas and inspiration along the way and I'm hoping that I will inspire you some more.

I've used the Number of Years stamp set a little bit lately and what I love about it is that those beautiful large numbers have beautiful large matching framelits. This is also one of the fabulous 'Bundle and Save' bundles, so that when purchased together you can get them at 15% off the original price. 

Even though the Number of Years stamp set is very floral and feminine I wanted to use it today for boy/male cards and especially for two of my nephews who both turn six this week.  So I've used some of the word elements and the Framelits numbers.

I've picked a fabulous and fun boy colour combination Cucumber Crush and Basic Black and then gone from there!

The words and the 'th' banner are embossed in White Stampin' Emboss Powder and I've used my paper piercer to pierce some holes for a bit of hand sewing with Metallic Gold Thread. I love that the Metallics Sequin Assortment not only comes in different colours but also different shapes so that you can still put sequins on a boy/male card and not have it look too girly.

Now its time to hop on to the ever wonderful Linda Callahan for some more inspiration

Or if you are hopping in reverse head on to fellow Aussie and friend, Nikki Spencer.
