Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited Father’s Day Card for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop for May! Today we are sharing projects “for the men/boys”. You will find links at the bottom of my post to hop you along the way to the other projects. Be sure to visit them all to see how each team member interpreted the theme in what they made for you!

I used the Handsomely Suited Bundle from the 2021 January to June 2021 Mini Catalog (page 67) to make a Happy Father’s Day card for my Father-In-Law.   The Handsomely Suited Cling Stamp Set (9 stamps) and the Suit & Tie Dies (14 dies) are discounted 10% when purchased together (#156240) until June 30, 2021 (11:50 pm MT).  Thereafter, they will only be available to order individually through the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog (page 50 and 156) at full cost.  At the end of the blog there are links to all the products used in the making. I hope you enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Misty Moonlight Cardstock: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ (card base) and 1”x1” (button die from Suite & Tie Dies)
  • Smoky Slate Cardstock: 4” x 6” (largest die cut from Stitched Rectangle Dies)
  • Basic White Cardstock:  3 1/2” x 5” (2nd largest die cut from Stitched Rectangle Dies), and 4” x 5 1/4” (inside panel)
  • Vellum Cardstock:  6” x 1/2” (thin rectangle die – “suspenders” –  from Suite & Tie Dies)

The Creating

I began by die cutting the two Stitched Rectangle Dies and the two Suit & Tie Dies.

With Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, I stamped the three ties on the Basic White stitched die cut and on the Basic White Medium EnvelopeTIP:  I found it easiest way to get the ties straight and even was to use my Stamparatus.  The grid on the clear door helped me ensure the ties were straight up and down.  I used Hinge-Step stamping to get them level and equally spaced:  I lined up and stamped the first one with the door in position and then moved the door down a hinge for the 3rd one which then allowed the center one to be lined up and stamped in the middle.

I also used the Stamparatus and Tuxedo Black Ink to stamp the inside greeting and tie (at the same time).  I decided to let my Mother-In-Law be the one to tell my Father-In-Law he is handsome, so I masked off the bottom line with a Post It Note. Just remember to remove it once you’ve inked and before you stamp!  

I stamped the sentiment on the center of the Vellum die cut and dried it with my Heat Tool (because I’m not patient enough to wait for it to dry).

I colored the ties with Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends Combos in Smoky Slate and Misty Moonlight.  I chose to shade the right side of the ties.  TIP:  place a scrap piece of paper inside the envelope to prevent bleed through.

With Multipurpose Liquid Glue I adhered the stamped stitched rectangle to the Smoky Slate one.  I wrapped the Vellum die cut around these layers and secured them on the back with tape.  I added the button embellishments (I wish you could see the cute thread detail in the picture) with Mini Glue Dots and the putty end of my Take Your Pick Tool.  With my Take Your Pick Tool, I slid a Mini Glue Dot underneath the vellum where the left and right buttons are (so the glue dot is hidden) to secure the sentiment closer and more securely to the cardstock.  I popped these layers on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Two for One Cards

I used the Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle from the Stampin’ Up! 2021-2022 Annual Catalog for these two cards. It is a design I saw from Cindy Brumbaugh. Whenever I make a card like this with a random stamped background design, I find it just as easy to make two as to make one. The dimensions below are to do just that. Don’t you love the colors? They remind me of sea glass. Enjoy!


The Paper Cuts (for 2 cards) 

  • Basic White Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ (top panels), 4″ x 3 1/2″ (seashell die cuts) and two 5 1/4″ x 4″ panels (insides)
  • Pool Party Cardstock: two 5 1/4″ x 1 5/16″ (lower panels)
  • Night of Navy Cardstock: 8 1/2″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ on the long edge and cut at 4 1/4″ on the short edge (2 card bases)

The Creating

  • I stamped the seashells from the Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set randomly on 5 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ Basic White panel with Night of Navy Ink. I added the two seashell fill images with first and second generation Pool Party and Pear Pizzazz Ink. I cut this panel in half on the short edge at 2 1/8″ with my Paper Trimmer.
  • With Night of Navy Ink I stamped the greeting on the right sides of the Pool Party panel.
  • I stamped the large seashells twice in Night of Navy and Pear Pizzazz Ink on the 4″ x 3 1/2″ Basic White panel. I roughly trimmed them apart with my Paper Snips and ran them through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine with the large die from the coordinating Seaside Shells Dies. I then trimmed off the extra connecting pieces. You can just fussy cut the whole shell if you prefer.
  • I repeated the stamped pattern on the Basic White inside panels and the Basic White Medium Envelopes.
  • I adhered the card panel layers with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The die cut seashells are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Strawberry Birthday Card

I used the Sweet Strawberry Bundle from the Stampin’ Up! January to June 2021 Mini Catalog for this sweet Happy Birthday card. Enjoy!


The Paper Cuts 

  • Basic White Thick Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base), a 2″ x 3 3/16″ label die cut from Stitched So Sweetly Dies, and a scrap for the blossom punch.
  • Poppy Parade Cardstock: 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ panel and 1 1/2″ x 3″ for strawberries
  • Pear Pizzazz Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel and 1 1/4″ x 6″ for leaves and stems

The Creating

  • With Pear Pizzazz Ink, I stamped the stem, leaf and blossom image randomly on the Pear Pizzazz Cardstock panel. I colored the blossoms with the White Stampin’ Chalk Marker. So fun! I then added Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend to the blossom center.
  • With the Pear Pizzazz Ink, I stamped the strawberry stem image two times and the strawberry leaf image three times on the Pear Pizzazz Cardstock.
  • With Poppy Parade Ink, I stamped two of the strawberry images on Poppy Parade Cardstock.
  • With Gray Granite Ink, I stamped the blossom image on Basic White Thick Cardstock
  • I punched the stamped images with the Strawberry Builder Punch.
  • With Poppy Parade Ink I stamped the “Just for You” sentiment on the lower right corner of the Stitched So Sweetly die cut and the happy birthday sentiment on the inside of the card.

  • With Pear Pizzazz Ink, I stamped the stem, leaf and blossom image twice on the bottom of the inside of the card. I colored the blossom centers with Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend and added Wink of Stella to the leaves and blossoms. I also stamped this image on the front of the Medium Basic White Envelope and colored in the same manner.
  • I adhered the card front layers, strawberry leaves, and the top strawberry with Multipurpose Liquid Glue as shown. I added the lower strawberry with Stampin’ Dimensionals and tucked the blossom In with a Mini Glue Dot.
  • I added a little Wink of Stella and a Bumblebee 2020-21 In Color Enamel Dot to embellish the blossom. I also added Wink of Stella to the yellow center of the blossoms on the Pear Pizzazz panel. A birthday card needs a little sparkle. Right?

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Card

I used the Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle from the Stampin’ Up! January to June 2021 Mini Catalog for this friendship card. Enjoy!


The Paper Cuts 

  • Basic White Thick Cardstock: 5 1/2″ x 11″, scored at 4 1/4″ (card base), label die cut from Tasteful Labels Dies, and a 5 1/4″ x 2″ panel for embossing.
  • Shimmer White Cardstock: large die cut from Seaside Seashells Dies.

The Creating

  • With Gray Granite Ink I stamped the seashells on Basic White Thick Cardstock. I used my Stamparatus so that I could stamp them twice for a slightly darker image. I passed the two larger images through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine in their spot in the large die from Seaside Seashells Dies. I trimmed away the “connector pieces” with my Paper Snips. The starfish image has it’s own outline die.
  • I passed the Basic White Thick Cardstock panel through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine inside the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I passed the Shimmer White Cardstock large die cut through inside the coordinating Seashells Embossing Folder and trimmed off a section of the “sea fonds” for the card front.
  • With Gray Granite Ink I stamped the sentiments on the Tasteful Labels die cut and the inside of the card. I also added the images to the inside of the card and the front of the Basic White Envelope.
  • I adhered the embossed panel to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and topped it with the embossed sea fronds. I added the large shell die cut with liquid glue on the area over the fronds and Mini Glue Dots for a little “lift” over the card front. I added the sentiment label with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The medium shell is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals over the sea frond and with liquid glue over the label. The starfish is adhered with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the arms on the card and liquid glue on the arms over the label.
  • I added Wink of Stella to the starfish and three Elegant Faceted Gems for a little bling.

Stampin’ Up! 2021-2022 Annual Catalog Sneak Peek – Pansy Patch Thank You Card

The new Stampin’ Up! 2021-2022 Annual Catalog is going to go live on May 4th! Here’s a sneak peek of the Pansy Patch Bundle which includes the Pansy Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Pansy Dies at a 10% discount. I also used the coordinating Pansy Petals 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper and the new 2021-2023 In Colors. Enjoy!


The Paper Cuts 

  • Soft Succulent Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 8 1/2″ (card base), 6 leaf detail die cuts.
  • Evening Evergreen: 6 embossed leaf die cuts.
  • Vellum Cardstock: 3 of the large embossed pansy leaf die cuts and 3 of the single embossed pansy leaf die cuts.
  • Basic White Cardstock: 3 large pansy leaf edging die cuts, 3 single leaf edging die cuts, a 2″ smooth layering circle die cut and a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel (inside).
  • Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper: 4″ x 5 1/4″ (front), 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ (env) and 4′ x 1/2″ (inside).
  • Bumblebee Cardstock: 1 pansy center die cut (cuts 3)
  • Fresh Freesia Cardstock: 3 larger pansy center die cuts.

The Creating

  • With Evening Evergreen Ink, I stamped the sentiments from the Pansy Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set on the Layering Circles die cut and on the inside panel.
  • I placed the Vellum Cardstock pansy leaf die cuts and the Basic White pansy leaf tips on my Silicone Craft Mat and applied Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the backs fo the white tips. I lined them up on the tips of the vellum petals. Then I applied glue to the Fresh Freesia centers and placed them on the larger Vellum pansy petals. Tip: there are straight lines to line up to the edge of the white tips. Then I added the Bumblebee smaller centers with 1/2 of a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional. Tip: Mini Glue Dots would work too if you would like it a little less raised. I applied liquid glue to the back of the layer pansy so it was behind the Fresh Freesia die cut and wouldn’t be seen through the Vellum. I placed this on top of the single pansy leaf die cut.
  • I applied liquid glue to the Soft Succulent detail leaves and adhered them to the Evening Evergreen embossed die cuts.

  • I arranged the die cuts on the card front and adhered them in place. The pansy on the left is popped up with Mini Dimensionals (behind the Fresh Freesia) and the other elements are adhered with liquid glue.
  • I added three Fresh Freesia 2021-2023 In Color Jewels. These are so pretty…there is an iridescent coating that really shines.
  • I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to apply the inside panel, the small DSP strip to the lower edge of the inside panel and the larger strip to the envelope flap, trimming the excess with Paper Snips.

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Mother’s Day Card

I never expected to have so much fun with a butterfly set, but the Butterfly Brilliance Collections is awesome! It is an early release from the upcoming (May 4th) 2021-22 Annual Catalog (which I can’t wait for you to see!), but while the Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set and the Brilliant Wings Dies will remain bundled with the 10% savings in the new catalog, the beautifully varied 6×6 Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper will not be available after May 3rd! Be sure to get it while you can. See details HERE. The dies coordinate with the designer in the DSP for simple cards like this one. The design is CASEd from Su Mohj. Enjoy!


The Paper Cuts 

  • Basic White Thick Cardstock: 5 1/2″ x 8″, scored at 4 1/4″ (card base), 5/8″ x 2 5/8″ Stitched Rectangles Die (sentiment) and the largest Stitched Rectangles Die (front panel).
  • 6×6 Butterfly Bijou DSP: three of the 1 3/8″ x 3 3/8″ Stitched Rectangles die cuts (front), 5 1/4″ x 1/2″ (inside), 2 butterflies cut with the Brilliant Wings Dies (front) and 5 3/4″ x 2 3/8″ (envelope).

The Creating

  • With Basic Gray Ink, I stamped “Happy Mother’s Day” from Dressed to Impress Stamp Set on the smallest die cut and the inside sentiment from Happy Thoughts Stamp Set on the inside of the card base.
  • I adhered the three DSP panels to the large rectangle die cut with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Tip: Glue the first one and then place a ruler along the top edge to assist in placing the right one evenly. Add the middle one centered between to two. I popped this panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I used my Bone Folder to “lift” the butterfly wings on the DSP die cuts where they join the body. I applied two Mini Glue Dots to the body to adhere them to the card front.
  • I added the small rectangle sentiment on the lower left corner with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I embellished by placing three small dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the DSP and used the Take Your Pick putty end to apply Flowers for Every Season Gems to place the gems on the glue.
  • I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to apply the small DSP strip to the lower edge of the inside of the card and the larger one to the envelope flap, trimming the excess with Paper Snips.
  • I inked the small butterfly from the Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set with Blushing Bride Ink and used a Sponge Dauber to apply a little Just Jade Ink before stamping it above the inside greeting.
  • I inked the larger butterfly from the Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set with Just Jade Ink and used a Sponge Dauber to apply a little Misty Moonlight Ink before stamping it in 2nd generation (stamp off once first) on the envelope front.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Ice Cream Thank You Card

This card is made with the Sweet Ice Cream Bundle from the January to June 2021 Mini Catalog. It contains the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch and the Sweet Ice Cream Photopolymer Stamp Set. This set is super cute, summery and includes images and well sized sentiments for the inside and outside of your cards. Enjoy!


The Paper Cuts 

  • Flirty Flamingo Cardstock: 8 1/2″ x 4 1/4, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base)
  • Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper: 5″ x 3 3/4″ (front)
  • Basic White Cardstock: 3 3/4″ x 1 3/4 (approx) die cut from Stitched Rectangle Dies (front), two 5 1/4″ x 4″ (front and inside) and 5″ x 2″ (stamping)

The Creating

  • With Flirty Flamingo Ink I stamped two ice cream scoops and three ice cream drips on the Basic White Cardstock. I also stamped the sentiments on the Stitched Rectangle die cut and inside panel. Then, I stamped the ice cream scoops on the inside panel and the envelope. These are masked and are second generation impressions (stamp off then on). TIPS: To make the mask I stamped the ice cream scoop on a scrap of computer paper and fussy cut it with my Paper Snips. To create the layers you start with the top image and go backwards…the top scoop first, the middle scoop second.
  • With Soft Suede Ink, I stamped the ice cream cones in second generation ink on the Basic White Cardstock, the inside panel (masking the ice cream) and the envelope. I added the crosshatch image in first generation ink to all.
  • I punched the two stamped ice cream scoops and the stamped cone with the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch. I fussy cut the ice cream drips with Paper Snips.
  • To assemble, I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the Basic White panel (TIP: I cut the 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle Die from the center of this panel to use on another project. No one will ever know!), the DSP panel, and the Stitched Rectangle die cut to the card front. I also used it to adhere the inside panel.
  • I adhered the punched ice cream cone with a glue dot at the point and liquid glue at the top. I adhered the two ice cream scoops together with liquid glue and then popped them on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The ice cream drips are added with Mini Glue Dots to slightly elevate them.
  • I colored three Rhinestone Basic Jewels with the Flirty Flamingo Dark Stampin’ Blend and added them to the card front. I used Wink of Stella to add a line of sparkle to the lower edges of the ice cream scoops.
