Stampin’ Up! Textures & Frames Colorful Birthday Card

I used the Stampin’ Up! Textures & Frames Photopolymer Stamp Set to make two fun, colorful birthday cards…one is simple stamping and the other is stepped up with a few more layers and embellishments. This stamp set is free with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-bration (through September 2021, while supplies last, brochure linked below). It is so easy to use…I don’t know why I’ve waited so long! I hope you enjoy the card!

Card 1 – Simply Stamped

The Paper Cuts

  • Thick Basic White Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ (base) and 5″ x 3 3/4″ (front panel)
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 4″

The Creating

The stripes are made by stamping the solid brushstroke twice, with the narrow end at the top and bottom of the panel and slightly overlapping the wide end in the center. They are stamped with Calypso Coral Ink, Pear Pizzazz Ink, Bumblebee Ink and Misty Moonlight Ink. This color combination is so pretty! I added the “Celebrate” sentiment from the Create With Friends Stamp Set and the ink splatter image from Textures & Frames with Tuxedo Black Ink. The greeting on the inside is from the Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set. Portions of the brushstroke were added to the bottom edge of the inside of the card and to the bottom edge of the envelope. One dot from the paint spatter image was added inside, next to the sentiment.

Card 2 – Stepped Up

The Paper Cuts

  • Calypso Coral Cardstock: 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″ (base)
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 4″ (front panel) and label die cut from Seasonal Labels Dies with the coordinating slits for the ends.
  • Basic White Cardstock: 5″ x 3 3/4″ (front panel) and 5 1/4″ x 4″ (inside panel)

The Creating

The stripes and inside panel are the same as for Card 1. The “Celebrate” sentiment is stamped with VersaMark Ink onto the Seasonal Label die cut, sprinkled with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (excess tapped off) and melted with the Heat Tool. Two 4″ pieces of Glittered Organdy Ribbon were slipped through the side slits die cut into the label and taped to the back of the panel before being adhered to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive. The label is supported with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Three Matte Black Dots were added with the putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool. The Calypso Coral card base give a little extra layer of color on the inside.

    Stampin’ Up! Batik Boutique Simple Stamping Notecards

    I used the Batik Boutique Stamp Set and the Create With Friends Stamp Set to make these two notecards. It’s really the same card just embellished in two different ways. The stamping is simple, quick and easy with the Two Step color fill. Enjoy!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Bumblebee Cardstock: Both card bases are 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″.
    • Basic White Cardstock: The top card has two 5 1/4″ x 4″ panels (inside and front). The bottom card has a 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ front panel and a 5 1/4″ x 4″ inside panel.
    • Misty Moonlight Cardstock: The bottom card has a 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ front layer.

    The Creating

    The sentiments, large flower outlines, and small flower dotted circle accents are stamped with Misty Moonlight Ink. The floral fill and small flowers are stamped in Bumblebee Ink and the leaf fill and small leaves are stamped in Pear Pizzazz Ink. The small flower leaves are the same stamp as the leaf color fill for the big flowers.

    The large flower and fill is repeated on the inside panel and on the envelope.

    To assemble the cards I used Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive to adhere the panels to the card bases. I added the Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon to the bottom of the top card with Mini Glue Dots on the backside before adhering.

    To embellish the bottom card, I added Rhinestone Basic Jewels colored with a Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend.

    Which one do you like best? I couldn’t decide so I decided to post them both!
