Stampin’ Up! Dandy Garden Birthday Card

Whenever I need a quick and easy card, I find myself reaching for the So Sentimental Bundle from the 2020-21 Annual Catalog. The So Sentimental Stamp Set is on the Last Chance Products list and as of noon today was still in stock. The Stitched So Sweetly Dies will carry forward, but the bundled savings will go away. So hurry over to the store if it’s one you want. It’s a great combination of sentiments and dies!


The Paper Cuts 

  • Misty Moonlight Cardstock: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ (card base)
  • Basic White Cardstock: Two 5 1/4″ x 4″ panels (front & inside) and 2 1/4″ x 2 3/4″ (sentiment label)
  • Bumblebee Cardstock: 3 3/4″ x 2 1/2″ (die cut layer)
  • Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper: 2 patterns cut at 1 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ (front), 5 3/4″ x 2 3/8″ (env) and 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside)

The Creating

  • With Misty Moonlight Ink, I stamped Happy Birthday from the Happy Thoughts Stamp Set on the small white cardstock and then ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the die from Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I cut the larger die from Stitched So Sweetly Dies from the Bumblebee Cardstock and then adhered the two labels together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  • I stamped the inside greeting from the So Sentimental Stamp Set one of the white panels and adhered it to the inside of the card base, adding the decorative strip of Dandy Garden DSP.
  • I adhered the two DSP panels to the remaining white panel. I applied a little Stampin’ Seal+ to the back of the panel on either side (opposite where the two DSP panels meet) and wrapped a 6″ piece of Misty Moonlight Ribbon around the DSP seam so that the ends were secured by the Stampin’ Seal+ on the back. I added this panel to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  • The labels layer is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals and sport three Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots. The putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool makes lifting them from the package and placing them on the card super easy.
  • I adhered the final strip of DSP to the envelope flap with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and trimmed the excess away with Paper Snips.

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Sneak Peek

This card features the Dragonfly Garden Bundle and Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper from the January -June 2021 Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog (available January 5). Enjoy!

I love the colors in the Designer Series Paper: Terracotta Tile, Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow, Bumblebee and Misty Moonlight.

The Paper Cuts

  • Mossy Meadow Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ for the card base.
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 3 3/4″ x 1 3/4″ die cut from Stitched Rectangle Dies, a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel for the inside and a 2″ x 2 1/2″ for the dragonfly.
  • Terracotta Tile Cardstock: 1 7/8″ x 3 7/8″ layer for the card front.
  • Dandy Garden 6×6 DSP: 4″ x 5 1/4″ for the card front, 3/4″ x 4″ for the inside and 2″ x 4 3/8″ for the envelope.
  • 2020-21 In Color 6×6 DSP: sentiment die cut from Tasteful Labels Dies

The Creating

  • In Memento Basic Black Ink I stamped the floral image on the Stitched Rectangle die cut, the greeting on the Bumblebee Tasteful Labels die cut, the dragonfly on Whisper White and the greeting on the inside panel.
  • I watercolored the dragonfly with Terracotta Tile Ink (carefully not to get too much water on the paper) and once dry applied accent with the Light Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blend. I finished with Wink of Stella on the wings, punched it out with the Dragonflies Punch and added two Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back. You can curl the wings with a Bone Folder for added dimension.
  • I colored the floral image with Old Olive Light & Dark, Daffodil Delight Dark, Soft Suede Light and Cajun Craze Light Stampin’ Blends. After adhering it to the Terracotta Tile panel, I tied Mossy Meadow Braided Linen Trim in a knot around both layers and added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back.
  • All that’s left is to assemble the layers as shown.
  • The envelop is a CASE from a sweet customer of mine, Savannah, who did this application at a workshop. Apply Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the top left corner of the envelope flap. Fussy cut. Apply glue to the remaining piece, lift the flap and glue in place. Trim any overhang.
Isn’t this Dragonfly Garden Bundle and Dandy Garden DSP fun! I’m looking forward to more creating with it.
