Stampin' UP! Pyramid Pal Fun!

Hi Friends,
I was recently chosen by my Stampin' UP! up line, Patty Bennett, to be a sample maker for our Luv 2 Stamp group using the Playful Pals Stamp Set & the Pyramid Pals Thinlits Dies set. (Bundle Set is 15% off, item # 141069) These can be found on page 44 & 45 of the Occasions Catalog.
At first I was a little flustered and was not sure how I could make 6 different samples using the same set as I wanted each to be a little different. Once I began playing with the set though I became addicted to them. My Fairy Land Stampers team of demonstrators helped me brainstorm a little and the rest was history.
Today I am sharing with you 3 sets of Pyramids I made with the fascinating set and then on Thursday I will be back with 3 other samples along with a fun announcement.

This first set of pals I used both the stamp set as well as the die set to create 2 Wild Animals! Mr. Giraffe and Mr. Zebra were made using the "Go Wild Designer Series Paper Stack" which can be found in the annual catalog page 144 (Item # 138441)

You can never go wrong with birthday party favors so I decided to use just the pyramid box framelit for these adorable party treats. The backs of the pyramids open so candy can be tucked inside. I have used the following items from the Occasions Catalog to create these. Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper (Item# 140655), Pool Party 3/8" Glitter Ribbon (Item # 140561 - Love this stuff!!), The Large Numbers Framelit Dies for the banner cut out (Item# 140622), and lastly the sentiment set actually came from a sentiment set in the Annual Catalog called " Something to Say" It is a great go to set to have in your stamp collection.

Lastly I think this is the my favorite of the 3 pyramid sets here. This one is "Just For YOU!" I want to thank everyone of my readers for all of your support in helping me grow my business. Without readers, and shoppers of course, I would not be where I am at today. The support means the world to me. I wish I could meet each and everyone of you in person and stamp with each of you.
For this set I have focused on the RETIRING IN COLORS.... These will only be available until May 31st and then will be retired. They are WHILE SUPPLIES LAST and like previous years the inks and especially the ink refills will sell out first so if you have not gotten them don't forget to add them to your next order. I have used the amazing Balloon Celebration Stamp Set along with the coordinating Balloon Bouquet punch (Bundle is available for 15% when purchased together, item #140810) I have used some Stampin' Dimensionals (Item# 104430) and Basic Black Bakers Twine (Item # 134576) and a couple Mini Glue Dots (Item # 103683) at the bottom to hold the balloon stings taught. For the sentiment I have used the Hostess set called "Floral Wings" which can be earned by being a hostess or by having a $150+ order online and choosing it with your hostess rewards. (Item# 139169). I stamped the sentiment and die cut it out using the Bitty Banner Framelits (Item#129267)
Thank you for stopping by today...Check back with me on Thursday for the rest of my Sample Maker projects.
