Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Alphabest bundle is a fun alphabet stamp set with a coordinating punch that lets you create one of a kind sentiments in a fun way. I paired it with the beautiful designer series paper in the Sale-A-Bration Wonderful World bundle for a bright and cheerful Hello card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I adhered a strip of the pretty Wonderful World DSP to a Pear Pizzazz mat and adhered it to another DSP panel. I adhered the panel to another Pear Pizzazz mat and adhered the layered panel to the front of a Polished Pink card base.
I stamped the letters from the Stampin’ Up! Alphabest photopolymer stamp set in Melon Mambo ink on Basic White. I stamped each letter one at a time and then punched it out with the Best Label punch. I lined up the bottom of the letter with the last notch in the punch and made sure it was centered right to left before punching.
I adhered the letters starting with the ‘o’ with liquid glue so I could wiggle them a little to keep the letters evenly spaced and straight. I finished the front with three iridescent pearls.
For the inside of the card, I adhered a strip of the floral Wonderful World DSP to a Pear Pizzazz mat. I adhered the layered strip to the bottom of a Basic White panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
This was really fun and it turned out to be fairly easy to line up the letters, even with my wonky vision! My goal was to line up the letters straight, but you can also use a design with letters on different angles. The Stampin’ Up! Alphabest bundle would also be great to make custom cards spelling out names. The stamp set also has numbers and backgrounds that fit the punch, so it’s very versatile.

Some things are great on their own but become epic when they are paired with something else: cereal and milk, toast and butter, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. We may be biased, but our favorite combo is our stamp sets and dies—and that’s what the Perfect Partners promotion is all about!
Stampin’ Up! created six new dies that coordinate with stamp sets in the 2022–2023 Annual Catalog and the July–December 2022 Mini Catalog. These coordinating dies will only be available during this promotion and will not be offered in any catalog. Click on the picture below to open a flyer with all the details on the dies.
These stamp sets and dies are available separately or as a bundle. By buying the bundle, you will save 10% off the retail price.
