Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Dressed Bowtie Birthday Card

I used the Handsomely Dressed Bundle from the January – June 2021 Mini Catalog to make this card. The original design is from Demonstrator, Tina Rappe at the stampinstudio.com, but I put a different twist on the colors. I live in a State where crimson and gray are cherished 😉 Do you know where the Designer Series Paper is from? You will find instructions and all the links for the supplies I used below.

The Paper Cuts

  • Basic White Thick Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″scored at 5 1/2″ (card base)and the 2nd largest circle die from Stitched Shapes Dies
  • Real Red Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel and 1 3/4″ x 1″ (to die cut the bowtie)
  • Playful Pets Designer Series Paper: 3 3/4″ x 2″ (top panel)
  • Peony Garden Designer Series Paper: 3 3/4″ x 3″ (bottom panel), 4 1/8″ x 1/2″ (inside) and 5 3/4″ x 2 3/8″ (envelope flap)
  • Basic Gray Cardstock: 2nd largest smooth edged circle die cut from Layering Circles Dies.

The Creating

  • With Tuxedo Black Ink, stamp the birthday greeting from Handsomely Suited Stamp Set on the stitched circle die cut. Also stamp the bowtie on the smaller Real Red piece of cardstock and die cut it with the coordinating die from Suit and Tie Dies. I adhered this to the stitched circle with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  • Adhere the two DSP panels to the larger Real Red panel. I wrapped a 5″ piece of Black/White Baker’s Twine from Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack between the panels and secured with tape on the back. I then used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere to the card front.
  • I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the decorated circle die cut to the card.
  • The inside greeting from Happy Thoughts Stamp Set is stamped in Basic Gray Ink.
  • I adhered the small DSP strip to the inside of the card and the larger to the envelope flap, trimming the excess away with my Paper Snips.

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Bookmark Thank You Card

This is the last Butterfly Brilliance Bundle project from the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Meeting. The talented Mary Deatherage of Stamps-in-Lingers shared this sweet gift tag with us to all stamp together. I incorporated it into this Thank You card as a Bookmark. You will find instructions and all the links for the supplies I used below.

The Paper Cuts

  • Thick Basic White Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″scored at 5 1/2″ (card base), 2″ x 4″ (tag), and a Tasteful Labels die cut.
  • Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper : 4″ x 5 1/4″ (background) and two die cut butterflies (blue and yellow).
  • Vellum Cardstock: detailed Brilliant Wings die cut (same size as the blue butterfly)

The Creating

  • First, I cut the top of the strip of Basic White Thick Cardstock with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch. Then I stamped the wildflower image from Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set in second generation Just Jade Ink near the bottom. I added the sentiment from So Sentimental Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink over the top.
  • Use the large multi-butterfly die from Butterly Brilliance Dies to cut the butterflies from the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper. You’ll only need two so save the others for another project. 🙂 Add Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the body of the Vellum Cardstock die cut butterfly and adhere it to the blue die cut butterfly body. Adhere the pair to the top of the tag/bookmark. Apply silver Metallic Pearls down the center of the body. So pretty!
  • Pull a length of the Misty Moonlight Ribbon through the hole in the top of the tag. Use a piece of Linen Thread to tie around the base.
  • I placed the butterfly tag/bookmark onto the left side of the 4″ x 5 1/4″ DSP. (Be sure to have it high enough that you can get your adhesive along the edge below it). I placed a ruler horizontally underneath the blue butterfly and used a pencil to mark the left and right as a guide to cut a slit with the Paper Trimmer (or an exact knife, if you prefer) so that only the butterfly would peak out. I applied Stampin’ Seal along the back edges of the DSP and adhered it to the card base. Then I slid the butterfly bookmark/tag into the slit. Voila!
  • In Misty Moonlight Ink I stamped “the little things…” sentiment from Happy Thoughts Stamp Set on the Tasteful Labels die cut. I used Tuxedo Black Ink (but wish I’d used Just Jade, you may want to modify) on the inside panel. to stamp “Thank You”. I stamped a second generation Misty Moonlight Butterfly and a second generation Magenta Madness Butterfly on the inside panel. I echoed these in first generation on the envelope front and flap.
  • I adhered the stamped label to the bottom of the card front and popped on a small yellow butterfly with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

THE CARD

The talented and awesome, Amy Koenders of http://www.stampwithamyk.com designer this card and shared it with us to make at our Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Meeting and we stamped together! To make it we used the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle (Butterfly Brilliance Cling Stamp Set and Brilliant Wings Dies). It is an early release from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog and is amazing! You can find a link to all the details for the Butterfly Bouquet Collection below. If you’d like to join our team, I’d love to talk to you about it! There is also information at the Starter Kit quick link under the signature below.

The Paper Cuts

  • Bermuda Bay Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base)
  • Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper (Bermuda Bay geometric): two 3 7/8″ x 1″
  • Natural Touch Specialty Paper: 3 1/4″ x 3 7/8″
  • Basic White Cardstock: 1 7/8″ scallop Layered Circle Die, 3 1/2″ x 3″ (die cutting) and 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside)
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″, 3 3/8″ x 3 7/8″

The Creating

  • First I stamped a couple of the butterflies from the Butterfly Brilliance Cling Stamp Set onto the Natural Touch Specialty Paper panel with Gray Granite Ink. It takes a few minutes for the ink to air dry on this beautiful paper (or the heat tool on the low setting would work). I also stamped a couple of these butterflies in the same Gray Granite Ink on the Basic White inside panel and the Basic White Medium Envelope.
  • With Tuxedo Black Ink, I stamped the largest butterfly from Butterfly Brilliance Cling Stamp Set on the 3 1/2″ x 3″ Whisper White Cardstock. I colored it with Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends Markers: So Saffron, Mango Melody and Smoky Slate. Then, I ran it through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine with the coordinating butterfly on the largest Brilliant Wings Die.
  • With Bermuda Bay Ink, I stamped the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set on the Layered Circles die cut and the “Wishing you…” sentiment (also from Peaceful Moments) on the inside panel.
  • To assemble the card, I adhered the two 3 7/8″ x 1″ DSP panels onto the top and bottom of the 4″ x 5 1/4″ Basic Black Cardstock panel with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Natural Touch Specialty panel onto the 3 3/8″ x 3 7/8″ Basic Black panel and then to the larger panel (over the edges of the Bermuda Bay geometric). The layered circle I adhered next with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and popped it on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • This decorated 4″ x 5 1/4″ Basic Black panel is popped onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I added three Rhinestone Basic Jewels that were colored with the Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend Marker.
  • The inside panel was adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Gift of Hope Easter Card

I used the Gift of Hope Cling Stamp Set and the Curvy Dies to make this Easter card. Both are from the January to June Mini Catalog. The cross is from the His Love Cling Stamp Set in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. I hope you enjoy the card! I love how it turned out.

The Paper Cuts

  • Thick Basic White Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base) and 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ (stamped panel)
  • Old Olive Cardstock: 2 3/4″ x 4 1/8″ (front & inside)
  • Pear Pizzazz Cardstock: 3 1/4″ x 4 1/16″ (front & inside)

The Creating

  • I began by using the dotted Curvy Die to cut the top 3/4″ of the Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive Cardstocks. I was careful to place the cutting edge of the die toward the larger portion of the cardstock so the hills would be smooth.
  • I stamped the cross from His Love Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink toward the left side of the Basic White Cardstock panel so that the base of the cross would be covered by the hills. The cross is colored with the Soft Suede Dark Stampin’ Blends Marker, the Old Olive Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends Markers, and the Gray Granite Light Stampin’ Blends Marker.
  • I adhered the smooth hillside layers with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the card front and the thinner dotted hillside layers to the inside of the card.
  • With Old Olive Ink, I stamped the “He Lives” sentiment and the Matthew 28:6 scripture on the card front.
  • I added three Pearl Basic Jewels.
  • On the inside I stamped the greetings from the Gift of Hope Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink.

  • Thick Basic White Cardstock: 8 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base) and 3 3/4″ x 1/2″ (sentiment)
  • Bumblebee Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 3 7/8″
  • Vellum Cardstock: 3″ x 4 3/8″ (die cutting)
  • Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper: the two yellow die cut butterflies, 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ (inside) and 2 1/2″ x 6″ (envelope)

The Creating

  • I began by using the Brilliant Wings Dies butterfly die to cut the butterflies from the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper. This large die cuts 6 butterflies, either stamped or from the DSP. I used the two yellow ones for this card.
  • I ran the Bumblebee Cardstock through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine inside the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  • I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the white strip and the inside of the card.
  • I cut the Vellum Cardstock with the rectangle die from the Nature’s Thoughts Dies. It has a sweet, dotted border which reminded me of a butterfly’s path. I attached it to the card with Mini Glue Dots strategically hidden under the images and the embellishment.
  • I adhered the sentiment strip, the inside strip of DSP and the smaller butterfly on the inside with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I trimmed the excess away from the envelope flap with Paper Snips. The large butterfly on the front was popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I added three Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to embellish the front.

Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Spring Card for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop for March! Today we are sharing “Celebrate Spring” projects. You will find links at the bottom of my post to hop you along the way to the projects. Be sure to check out all of our talented team members projects to see how they interpreted the theme and what they have made for you!

I used the Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set from the 2021 January to June Mini Catalog (with a few other select stamps and dies) to make a Thinking of You Card with bright Spring colors and flowers that would brighten anyone’s day! There are links to the products used at the end of the blog. I hope you enjoy the card!

The Paper Cuts

  • Basic White Thick Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″ (card base), largest Stitched Rectangle Dies die cut, and the middle Stitched Shapes Dies circle die cut.
  • Garden Green Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″

The Creating

  • I began by tracing the outline of the Stitched Shapes Dies medium circle onto the center of the Stitched Rectangles Dies die cut lightly with a pencil. This provided me with a stamping guide to know what would and what wouldn’t show from beneath the actual mounted die cut.
  • I then used Magenta Madness Ink to ink the top three flowers on the largest floral stamp in the Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped it once at the top and once at the bottom of the circle.
  • Using Gorgeous Grape Ink, I stamped the double floral image from the Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set once on the left and once on the right of the circle.
  • With Bumblebee Ink, I added four of the small floral image from the Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set in between the purple and pink images.
  • I then stamped the tiny flower from Blossoms in Bloom Photopolymer Stamp Set (2020-22 Annual Catalog) with Seaside Spray Ink.
  • Finally I added the double leaf image from Beautiful Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set (2020-22 Annual Catalog) in Garden Green Ink.
  • With Garden Green Ink, I stamped the “Thinking of You” sentiment from the Blossoms in Bloom Photopolymer Stamp Set centered inside the Stitched Shapes Dies circle die cut. I also stamped the greeting from the Happy Thoughts Cling Stamp Set on the inside of the card base.
  • I repeated the flowers on the inside of the card and on the envelope flap. Don’t you love a matching set?
  • To assemble the card front I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the stamped Stitched Rectangle to the Garden Green panel and then both to the card base. I erased the pencil marks and then popped the Stitched Shapes die cut on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • To embellish, I added three Magenta Madness 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots.

Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Spring Notecard

We had a beautiful sunny day today and I am just itching for Spring. I used the Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set and coordinating Nature’s Thoughts Dies from the 2020-21 Annual Catalog for this card. I hope you enjoy the card.

The Paper Cuts

  • Garden Green Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base)
  • Basic White Cardstock: Stitched Rectangle Die (approx 3 1/4″ x 1 1/4″, sentiment), 2″ x 4″ (butterfly dies), and two 4″ x 5 1/4″ (front and inside)

The Creating

  • With Tuxedo Black Ink, I stamped three butterflies from the Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set on Basic White Cardstock. I colored them with Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends and then die cut them with the Nature’s Thoughts Dies and Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine. I added Wink of Stella to the wings for a little glam.
  • With Garden Green Ink, I stamped the sentiment on the Stitched Rectangles die cut and randomly stamped the fern image on the Basic White panels and Basic White Envelope.
  • To assemble I used Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive to apply the Basic White panels to the card base. I popped the butterflies and the Stitched Rectangle die cut with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Thank You Card

I used the Dragonfly Garden Bundle from the 2021 January – June Mini Catalog for this card. It contains the Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set and the Dragonflies Punch. To color the dragonfly I searched the internet for pictures of actual species. They come in so many color varieties! This one looks like a rainbow! I hope you enjoy the card.

The Paper Cuts

  • Mossy Meadow Cardstock: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ (card base)
  • Whisper White Cardstock: medium Stitched Shapes Dies circle (sentiment), 2″ x 2 1/2″ (dragonfly), and 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside)
  • Misty Moonlight Designer Series Paper: 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ (front), 4/16″ x 5 1/4″ (inside), and 5 3/4″ x 2 1/2″
  • Vellum Cardstock: 4 x 5 1/4″

The Creating

  • With Tuxedo Black Ink, I stamped the dragonfly on Basic White Cardstock. I colored it with Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends in Mossy Meadow, Misty Moonlight, Blackberry Bliss and Balmy Blue. I added Wink of Stella to the wings and then punched it with with the Dragonflies Punch.
  • I ran the Vellum Cardstock through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine inside the leafy Greenery Embossing Folder. I added it to the card front with 4 strategically placed Mini Glue Dots.
  • With Tuxedo Black Ink, I stamped the sentiments on the Stitched Shapes circle die cut and the Basic White inside panel.
  • I added the paper layers to the card and envelope with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and trimmed the excess on the envelope with Paper Snips.
  • I wrapped the Mossy Meadow Braided Linen Trim around the card front and tied it in a bow. The dragonfly is added with two Mini Glue Dots. The one on the tail overhung a little so I used my Take Your Pick Tool to roll the edges onto itself. I slightly curled the wings with my Bone Folder.
  • I added three (3) Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots to the card front.
