Stampin’ Up! Dressed to Impress Plaid Shaker Birthday Card

This birthday shaker card is for my mother…all the things she loves…shine, sparkle, gold, pink and made by me! It features the Dressed to Impress stamps and dies and the Celebration Labels dies. Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Shimmer White Cardstock: a cardbase cut at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″, two of the 2nd smallest Celebration Labels die and scraps for the floral and sentiment.
  • Plaid Tidings 6×6 Designer Series Paper: a 6×6 sheet cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″. You’ll use the remaining pieces for the envelope flap and the strip inside.
  • Gold Foil Sheets: the middle sized Celebration Labels die.
  • Window Sheet: the 2nd smallest Celebration Labels die.

The Creating

  • Use the perfume bottle die to cut out the center of one of the Shimmer White labels. Lay the label on top of the other, place in the Stamparatus to line up the perfume stamp through the opening. Remove the label with the opening. Stamp the perfume bottle with Versamark Ink, sprinkle with Gold Stampin’ Emboss and melt with the Heat Tool. Repeat with the sentiment on the inside of the card, the rose image and the “hello fabulous”.
  • Color the rose image with Stampin’ Blends.
  • Fussy cut the “hello fabulous” with Paper Snips. Apply Foam Adhesive Strips to the top of the “h” and the “ll”s.
  • Die cut the floral image with the coordinating die. Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back.
  • Use Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive to apply the Window Sheet to the back of the Shimmer White die cut of the perfume bottle. Apply Foam Adhesive Strips along the edges of the bottom portion of the bottle and around the rest of the label to support it.
  • Adhere the plaid panel on the card front. Top with the Gold Foil label. Add the Shimmer White label with the embossed perfume bottle. Place your filler in the center of the perfume bottle. Top with the window sheet label.
  • Add the floral image, the sentiment, the bow and the strip to the inside.
  • Adhere the remaining plaid piece to the envelope flap and trim excess.

Stampin’ Up! Dressed to Impress Thank You Card

Tonight I used the Dressed to Impress photopolymer stamp set and the coordinating Best Dressed Designer Series Paper to make this sweet Thank You card. The design was inspired by a fellow Stampin’ Up! colleague named Laurie Taylor.

Dimensions:

  • Card Base: Whisper White 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Front Panels: Gray Granite 4 5/8″ x 3 5/8″ & Basic Black 4 1/2″ x 3 1/2″
  • Image Layers: Whisper White 2 1/16″ x 2 1/4″ (Bottle) & 2 1/2″ x 7/8″ (Lipstick)
  • Best Dressed DSP: 2″ x 2 1/4″ (Purses) and 1 1/2″ x 7/8″ (Roses)

Details:

  • I stamped the images with Momento Basic Black Ink.
  • I sponged the edges of the inside squares (images & DSP) with a Sponge Dauber and Gray Granite Ink. I just wanted a little more of a finished look than the raw edges.
  • I colored the images and stamped the perfume with Stamp n’ Writes. I used Highland Heather, Gray Granite and Petal Pink.
  • The inside has a 1/2″ strip of the Rose pattern DSP at 5 1/4″ long.
  • The message was stamped with Highland Heather Stamp n’ Write.
  • The flower is stamped in Tuxedo Black and colored with Highland Heather and Mint Macaron Stamp n’ Writes.

I hope you enjoyed tonight’s card. Thank you for stopping by.

The images in the Dressed to Impress Bundle are super cute and oh so girly! Especially when paired with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I must also say that it surprised me how wonderfully bold the sentiments stamped. You won’t be disappointed. Here’s what I made tonight.

The Stamping and Embellishing

  • On the Whisper White Stitched So Sweetly Die, stamp the shoe and sentiment in Tuxedo Black ink and the dots in Lovely Lipstick ink.
  • On the Whisper White layer stamp two shoes to die cut and the inside sentiment.
  • The shoes are colored with Light Flirty Flaming and Dark Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blend and the Black Stampin’ Write (sole).
