Stampin’ Up! Darling Donkeys Pattern Play Anniversary Card

Yesterday my husband and I celebrated our 19th Wedding Anniversary! So tonight I’m sharing the card I made for him. I used the Pattern Play Bundle from the 2020-21 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog and the Darling Donkeys Photopolymer Stamp Set (free with a $50 retail purchase) from the Jan-Feb 2021 Sale-A-Bration Brochure. Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Basic Gray Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ card base.
  • Peony Garden DSP: Largest Stitched Rectangle Die and a 4″ x 3/8″ stip (inside).
  • Real Red Cardstock: 2nd largest Stitched Rectangle Die.
  • Basic White Cardstock: 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle Die and a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel (inside).
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 2″ x 3″

The Creating

  • With Tuxedo Black Ink, I stamp the donkey on the Basic White Stitched Rectangle Die cut.
  • I colored it with Stampin’ Blend Markers: Light and Dark Smokey Slate (donkey), Light Basic Black (mane & tail), Dark Petal Pink (ears), Light and Dark Real Red (rose) and Dark Olive Green (stem and leaves). I used the Color Lifter to highlight the nose and ears.
  • I adhered the layers on the card base as shown with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  • I cut a 2″ x 3″ piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet and adhered it to the Basic Black Cardstock. I arranged the Playful Alphabet letters on top and ran through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine. I arranged the letters on the card front then peeled the backing and adhered them.
  • I added 3 Resin Heart Embellishments from the 2021 Jan-Jun Mini Catalog.

  • I stamped the inside sentiment from the Many Mates Cling Stamp Set with Tuxedo Black Ink on the inside Whisper White panel and added the open hearts from the Pattern Play Photopolymer Stamp Set in Real Red Ink. I adhered the DSP strip to the bottom edge and then glued the decorated panel to the inside of the card base.
  • I stamped the open hearts randomly in Real Red Ink on the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Stitched So Sweetly Photo Card

Good evening and Merry Christmas from the Leonards to you! I do hope you have had a lovely day. Tonight I am sharing with you the Christmas card I made for my husband. I decided to feature some of our past Christmas memories that involved others, but still about each other. This Christmas, like many other folks, it’s just the two of us staying home and staying safe and missing in person engagements with friends and family.

To make the card, I used Stitched So Sweetly Dies, Layering Circles Dies, Stitched Rectangle Dies and the Coming Home Designer Series Paper. You don’t need to have all of these to utilize the idea…it’s just what fit my pictures. I think this would also be a great idea for an anniversary card, as well.

I embossed the top Real Red panel with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and topped it with a Trimming the Town DSP banner made with the Banner Triple Punch. I sponged the banner edges with a Sponge Dauber and Soft Suede Ink. The sentiment is cut from the Trimming the Town DSP and mounted on the smallest Stitched Rectangles Dies die cut which is popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The pictures are cropped with Stitched So Sweetly Dies, Layering Circles Dies, and Stitched Rectangle Dies. The pictures on the front were backed with the same die cut in Old Olive and cut in half. The final touch are All the Trimmings Enamel Embellishments. The sentiment is from the Celebrations Tidings Stamp Set and stamped in Old Olive Ink.
