SSD Design Team: "I Like Your Style" with Nifty Fifties

This week over at SweetSassyDiva our challenge was to create something using one of our new cartridges. I snagged Nifty Fifties during PaperCrafting Pros $13 cartridge sale, but I was a little apprehensive about using it. I was born in 1985, what in the heck was I going to do with all of these fifties images? Well, fear not my friends! Nifty Fifties is a truly versatile cartridge and you can make SO MANY wonderful things with it! Wanna see what I did?

  • Nifty Fifties Cartridge
  • DCWV Black Currant stack
  • i-Rock and gems
  • Martha Stewart black pearls
  • My Pink Stamper "Pinkalicious Puns" stamp set

One of the first images I was drawn to on the cartridge was the dress form and the cute little sock hop dress.  I cut the dress form from glitter paper and the actual dress from the Black Currant stack.  The dress comes with a buckle but it was too small to really work with, so I blinged up the dress with gems instead.

The sentiment is from the My Pink Stamper Pinkalicious Puns set.  I KNOW, I KNOW.  I didn't use a Pink By Design Stamp!  Are you shocked?  Trust me, I wanted to, but I don't own the Shopaholic stamp set...yet. Sarah, if you're listening, my birthday is next month ;)

All kidding aside, this is a great girly stamp set with lots of fashion sayings, and "I Like Your Style" went perfectly with the dress.

SO, there you have it!  If you ever have the opportunity to get Nifty Fifties (and it's going for really cheap these days) you should!  You'll be surprised what you can create with it :)
