Stampin’ Up! A Touch of Ink – 4 Days of Sale-A-Bration Left

I used A Touch of Ink Photopolymer Stamp Set from the Jan – 28 Feb 2021 Sale-A-Bration Brochure for this card. This set is a mega set with two sheets of stamps including two step stamping and greetings. It is free with a $100 retail purchase during Sale-A-Bration which ends Sunday, February 28, 2021. There are more details about Sale-A-Bration at the bottom of the post.

The Paper Cuts

  • Thick Basic White Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base)
  • Gold Foil Sheets: 4″ x 5 1/4″ (Tip: I cut the middle out with the 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle to use on another project).
  • Vellum Cardstock: 2″ x 2 1/4″
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 3 3/4″ x 1″
  • True Love Designer Series Paper: 3 3/4″ x 5″ (front), 5 1/4″ x 1/2″ (for inside) and 5 3/4″ x 2 3/8″ (env)

The Creating

  • Stamp the butterfly image from A Touch of Ink Photopolymer Stamp Set on the Vellum Cardstock with VersaMark Ink. Sprinkle with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and melt with the Heat Tool. Add Wink of Stella to the wings, if desired. Fussy cut with Paper Snips leaving a narrow border.
  • Stamp the greeting from A Touch of Ink Photopolymer Stamp Set on the Basic Black Cardstock with VersaMark Ink. Sprinkle with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and melt with the Heat Tool.
  • Stamp “Happy Birthday” from Happy Thoughts Cling Stamp Set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on the inside of the card.
  • Adhere the layers to the card front and inside with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I only added the glue to the body of the butterfly which allows the wings to curl off the card about 1/8″. It will easily slide into the envelope, be flat for mailing and resume the curl when removed.
  • Add 3 Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to embellish the card front.
  • Adhere the 1/2″ strip of the True Love Designer Series Paper to the inside edge of the card and the larger piece to a Basic White Medium Envelope flap with Mutlipurpose Liquid Glue. Trim excess DSP from the envelope with Paper Snips.

Stampin’ Up! A Touch of Ink Thinking of You Card

I used A Touch of Ink Photopolymer Stamp Set from the Jan 5 – Feb 28, 2021 Sale-A-Bration Brochure. It is FREE with a $100 retail purchase and has two sheets of stamps. It includes both the outline and the fill stamps, as well as sentiments and a background stamp. It’s so awesome!

One of the things I love about Stampin’ Up! is the coordination of products. I find it easy to pull my project colors from a Designer Series Paper. For this card I used the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper from the 2021-22 Annual Catalog. So simple!

The Paper Cuts

  • Mint Macaron Cardstock: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ (card base)
  • Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper: 1 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ (front) and 3/8″ x 5 1/4″ (inside)
  • Basic White Cardstock: 2 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ (front), 4 x 5 1/4″ (inside) and 2 1/4″ x 1 3/4″ (label)

The Creating

  • Using the Stamparatus, I stamped the hummingbird outline in Tuxedo Black Ink. I positioned the hummingbird fill stamp over the outline and picked it up with the Stamparatus plate. I inked the breast of the stamp with Bumblebee Ink and then the rest with Mint Macaron Ink and stamped. I then stamped the leaves (outline & fill) in Olive Green Ink. I finished with the background dots on a block in Bumblebee Ink, some first- and some second-generation.
  • I stamped the sentiment in Mint Macaron Ink on Basic White Cardstock and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine with the 2nd smallest label in the Stitched So Sweetly Dies (one of my fav die sets).
  • I adhered the layers to the card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue except the label which is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I added a knotted 1/4″ Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon around the card front to cover the seam. I wanted to ensure it did not slip around during mailing since the hummingbird is close to the edge, so I added a few Mini Glue Dots underneath using my Take Your Pick Tool to lift them from the roll and to place them under the ribbon.
  • I stamped the leaf outline on the Basic White Medium Envelope in Old Olive Ink.

There are links down below for the products used.
