I used the Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Bundle from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog for this card. The bundle includes the Artistically Inked Stamp Set and Artistic Dies. There is beautiful Designer Series Paper that coordinates with this set of products, but for this project I branched out and used a repeat “wall paper” pattern for the background with dramatically different colors. I hope you enjoy the card.
The colors were inspired by the TGIF Challenges: #TGIFC328 Color Challenge.
The Paper Cuts
- Basic Black Cardstock: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ (card base).
- Coastal Cabana Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 4″ (front panel), 5″ x 1-1/8″ (sentiment strip), 5″ x 5/8″ (inside strip) and the large leaf sprig die cut.
- Basic White Cardstock: 4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″ (front panel), 5 1/4″ x 4″ (inside panel) and 4″ x 2″ (stamping/die cutting).
- Pattern Party 12″x12″ DSP: 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ (front panel), 5″ x 1/2″ (inside strip) and 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ (envelope flap)
I began by stamping the rose image with Tuxedo Black Ink randomly on the Basic White front panel. I also stamped one on the front corner of the envelope and two on the Basic White 4″ x 2″, along with a small bud image. I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark Ink on the Coastal Cabana front strip, sprinked on White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (tapping off the excess) and melted it with the Heat Tool.
I die cut the stamped floral images with the coordinating dies using the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I used my Paper Snips to cut the leaves from the stem of the large die cut sprig to make placement easy. I added a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional to the back of the bottom point of all but one (this one is adhered flat under the “thanks”).
I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the panels and strips as shown, trimming the excess paper from the envelope flap with Paper Snips. I then dry fit the flowers and leaves on the card front for placement. I removed the dimensionals backings and popped on the leaves first. Then I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the backs of the flowers where needed and liquid glue on top of the base of the leaves where needed to support the roses.
I couldn’t help but add some Wink of Stella to the popped up flowers and the stamping on the envelope for a little extra sparkle. With the putty tip of the Take Your Pick Tool, I added three Coastal Cabana adhesive backed Artistry Bloom Sequins for a little more color.
