Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Birthday Card

I used the Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Bundle to make this floral birthday card to share with you. The bundle includes the Artistically Inked Stamp Set and the Artistic Dies. I also used the coordinating Expressions in Ink 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper and Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack.

My card design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #495.

The Paper Cuts

  • Polished Pink Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ (base) & 2 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ (4th smallest scallop circle die cut)
  • Expressions in Ink 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper: 4″ x 5 1/4″ (front panel) & 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ (envelope)
  • Basic White Cardstock: 4″ x 5″ (stamping/die cutting) & 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside panel)

The Creating

On the Basic White Cardstock, I stamped two rose images and a bud image in Polished Pink Ink. I also stamped two leaves images in Just Jade Ink and one leaves image in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I die cut these with the coordinating dies as well as the 3rd smaller smooth circle die from Layering Circles Dies. I stamped the “best wishes” sentiment on the circle with Pear Pizzazz Ink.

On the inside panel and the envelope front, I stamped the rose image, masked it (with an image that was stamped on a post it note sticky edge and fussy cut), and then stamped the leaves image. On the inside panel I stamped the “Happy Birthday” sentiment with VersaMark Ink, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and melted it with the Heat Tool. So pretty!

All that is left is the assembly…the two roses, the sentiment label, the gold leafy sprig and the Pear Pizzazz leaves are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The other layers are adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. For a little extra bling, I added three gold Metallic Pearls with the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool. Paper Snips make quick work of trimming the excess paper from the envelope flap after adhering.

Thank you for stopping by. If you have any questions or need a catalog, I’d be very happy to be your Demonstrator.   You can drop me an email at I’d love to hear from you!
