Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Notecard

I used the Artistically Inked Bundle along with the coordinating Expressions in Ink 12×12 Specialty Designer Series Paper for this Notecard. This is a super fun set of products and while I didn’t use them all on this particular card, the Suite is well worth the splurge! Enjoy.

The Paper Cuts

  • Soft Succulent Cardstock: 11 x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Expressions in Ink 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper: two 5 1/2″ x 4″ panels (I cut a 5 1/2″ strip from the short edge of the piece with the pink and orange ink dabbles and then cut the two 4″ panels).
  • 2021-23 In Color Shimmer Vellum: 5 1/4″ x 2″ (leaf die cut)
  • Basic White Cardstock: 5 1/2″ x 3″ (for stamping/die cutting)

The Creating

I stamped the floral image with Pale Papaya Ink twice on the Basic White Cardstock and ran them through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the coordinating die from Artistic Dies. I also die cut the leaves using the 2021-23 In Color Shimmer Vellum. So pretty! I snipped the two lower leaves off and separated them with my Paper Snips so that I could tuck them in where wanted.

With Polished Pink Ink, I stamped the hello sentiment in the lower left corner of the panel (the one with the most ink dabbles) and the “dots” to the inside of the flowers. I applied the panel to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added the leaf die cut with liquid glue as well, however, the next time I die cut it I will apply a piece of Adhesive Sheet first because the shimmer vellum wanted to twist/lift slightly…pressure from a Clear Block on top got the job done! I adhered the flower on the top left corner and popped the second one up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. With Mini Glue Dots, I tucked the two separated leaves underneath. With the Take Your Pick putty end, I applied Rhinestone Basic Jewels for a little sparkle to compliment the shimmer paper.

On the inside panel I stamped the floral image in Polished Pink Ink and a leaf image in Soft Succulent Ink. I also added a couple of pink dots and just a hint of a Pale Papaya floral image to balance out the design width and colors before adding the panel with liquid adhesive. I duplicated the floral image and leaves on the Basic White Medium Envelope for a matching set.

    Stampin’ Up! Batik Boutique Birthday Card for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

    Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop for June! Today we are sharing Birthday projects. 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 hope you will enjoy what I made!

    I used the Batik Boutique Bundle from the 2021 -2022 Annual Catalog (page 114) to make this Happy Birthday card.  The Batik Boutique Photopolymer Stamp Set (11 stamps) and the Batik Dies (9 dies) are discounted 10% when purchased together (#158362).  The stamp set is Two-Step Stamping which means that there are stamps that fill in color inside of the outline stamps which is also why it is photopolymer to allow us to line the images up (and these line up super easy). At the end of the blog you can find links to all the products used in the making.

    The Paper Cuts

    • Bumblebee Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″ (card base) and 3″ x 2 1/4″ (floral outline).
    • 2020-2022 In Color 6″x6″ Designer Series Paper Assortment (Bumblebee): 4″ x 5 1/4″ (front panel), 2″ x 2 1/4″ (scallop floral accent) and 4″ x 1/2″ (inside strip).
    • Night of Navy Cardstock: 2nd largest die cut from Stitched Rectangle Dies and 4″ x 2″ (floral detail).
    • Basic White Cardstock:  3nd largest die cut from Stitched Rectangle Dies and 4” x 5 1/4” (inside panel).
    • Misty Moonlight Cardstock:  4″ x 2″ (floral detail)
    • Pear Pizzazz Cardstock: 2″ x 2″ (leaves)

    The Creating

    I began by die cutting and assembling the floral image. I cut the large floral outline die in Bumblebee and the large detailed floral die and the tulip die in both Night of Navy and Misty Moonlight. I also cut the scallop floral accent die from Bumblebee DSP.

    I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue and my Silicone Craft Sheet for all the adhering…first the navy outline to the yellow base, then the navy centers to the base just at the inside corner which allowed for some lift at the floral edge, and then the blue small accent pieces. The Take Your Pick Tool Putty Tip is super handy to maneuver the smaller pieces, or you could use the Press & Seal Method if you prefer. Once the glue was dry I used the pointy end of the Take Your Pick Tool to lift and curl the outer edges of the navy pieces for the dimension. Next I adhered the navy tulip outline to the yellow DSP, added the blue pieces and then added it to the larger portion (I did not line up the bottom edges of the two pieces, but placed the top one a little lower to allow more room for the petals to pop out).

    With Pear Pizzazz Ink, I stamped the leaf outline image on Pear Pizzazz Cardstock and cut it out with the coordinating die. I added these to the floral image with Mini Glue Dots. I positioned the tag on the Basic White Stitched Rectangle die cut for spacing perspective and stamped the sentiments from Create With Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set (page 36, 17 stamps) with Night of Navy Ink

    With Night of Navy Ink, I stamped he sentiment from Artistically Inked Cling Stamp Set (page 97,12 stamps) on the Basic White inside panel, and also added the floral outline stamp on the lower left corner and on the Basic White Medium Envelope. With Misty Moonlight Ink and Bumblebee Ink I stamped the coordinating 2nd Step images inside the floral outline. I added the DSP strip and the inside panel to the card base with liquid glue.

    To complete the card front I added the DSP panel to the card base, and the white stitched rectangle to the navy stitched rectangle, with liquid glue. I popped the navy stitched rectangle and the floral tag up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Crushed Curry Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the floral image (on the tulip) and three Night of Navy ones around the sentiment. So pretty!

    Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Thank You Card

    I used the Artistically Inked Cling Stamp Set along with the coordinating Expressions in Ink 12×12 Specialty Designer Series Paper for this Thank You Card. If you have followed me for long you may have noticed that I often use pink and green. This is a new found discovery of my own! It seems to work well and I hope you enjoy the card!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Polished Pink Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
    • Expressions in Ink 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper: 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ (front panel)
    • Basic White Cardstock: Tasteful Label Die Cut and 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside panel)

    The Creating

    I stamped the roses in Polished Pink Ink and the leaves in Shaded Spruce Ink on the Designer Series Paper, the inside panel, and the envelope.

    I stamped the “thanks” greeting in Polished Pink on the Tasteful Label die cut. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back.

    I adhered the front and inside layers with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive. I added the gold die cut elements from the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack (I think someone at Stampin’ Up! is trying to improve our vocabulary and spelling) with dots of Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.

    I added the “thanks” label and three Evening Evergreen 2021-23 In Color Jewels (they coordinate beautifully) to complete the card.

    Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Golden Birthday Card

    I used the Artistically Inked Bundle and the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder from the 2021-22 Annual Catalog to create this elegant birthday card. When my order arrived from Stampin’ Up! the first thing I did was pull out this bundle and embossing folder and run them through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine! The detail is amazing. Enjoy!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Basic White Thick Cardstock: 4 1/4′′ x 11′′ scored at 5 1/2′′ (card base)
    • Basic White Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel (dry embossing) and 4″ x 1/2″ (sentiment)
    • Gold Foil Sheets: 4″ x 8″ (die cutting) and 4″ x 5/8″ (sentiment layer)

    The Creating

    With VersaMark Ink I stamped the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the Artistically Inked Cling Stamp Set onto the Basic White strip, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, tapped off the excess, and melted the powder with the Heat Tool. I repeated the process for the “Best Wishes” sentiment on the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

    I placed the Basic White panel into the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine (folded end first). I also cut two of the large floral die from Gold Foil Sheet.


    To assemble the card, I adhered the sentiment strip to the Gold Foil strip with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then adhered it near the bottom of the embossed panel. I adhered the embossed panel to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Tip: the pokey end of the Take Your Pick Tool makes quick work of removing the paper from the back of dimensionals.

    I cut one of the floral die cuts in half to use on the inside of the card and on the envelope. To adhere the floral die cuts in place I dipped 1/8th of a Stampin’ Sponge into a dollop of liquid glue that I squeezed onto my Silicone Craft Mat and then applied it to the back of the detailed die cut. Tip: put a binder clip on the narrow end of the sponge wedge as a handle and keep in a small rubbermaid container for repeated use. I used my Paper Snips to trim any excess die cut away from the edges.

    For the final embellishment I adhered three Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels around the die cut image on the front of the card. So pretty and so simple!
