OK, so now you want to see the set in action, right? Hold on to your hats, it’s awesome!!! We now have number dies!!! OMGosh!! I’m totally in love with them. Can’t you imagine all the uses you can find for them? Yep, me too.

Look at those perfect numbers!! Sigh. I wanted to use this sentiment on a girly card so I pulled out my very girlie Cosmo Cricket Pixielicious paper, some bling (colored with Copic marker) and went to work. Look at the punch you can add to a card with no coloring at all! (Well, except for the bling ;-)). I added the rest of the sentiment by stamping single words from a couple of PI sets on a flag die cut using the First Place Award Ribbon Die and Stamp Set. It and the numbers are popped up on foam. Here’s the inside, using images from By the Numbers
