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! Sweet Ice Cream Birthday Card

I used the Sweet Ice Cream Bundle from the January to June 2021 Mini Catalog (page 49) for this fun birthday card. The bundle includes the Sweet Ice Cream Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Ice Cream Builder Punch at a 10% discount when purchased together (item no. 156244). Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Thick Basic White Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 5 1/2″ (card base)
  • Basic White Cardstock: largest scallop rectangle die cut from Stitched So Sweetly Dies.
  • True Love 12×12 Designer Series Paper: 5 1/2″ x 4″ (front panel and inside strip)
  • Bermuda Bay Cardstock: 1 1/2” x 2” (ice cream scoop)
  • Blackberry Bliss Cardstock:  1 1/2″ x 2″ (ice cream scoop)
  • Pumpkin Pie Cardstock: 3″ x 2″ (ice cream cones)

The Creating

I began by coloring the white stripes in the True Love Designer Series Paper panel with Stampin’ Blends: Pumpkin Pie Dark, Blackberry Bliss Light, and Bermuda Bay Light. I colored a 17″ piece of White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon with the Bermuda Bay Light Stampin’ Blend. I trimmed 1/4″ off the long edge of the panel. I adhered the panel to the card front and the strip to the inside bottom edge with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

With the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch, I punched two cones from Pumpkin Pie Cardstock and an ice cream scoop from Bermuda Bay Cardstock and from Blackberry Bliss Cardstock. With VersaMark Ink, I added the cross hatch image to the cones and the sprinkles to the Bermuda Bay ice cream scoop. I used Whisper White Craft Ink to add the sprinkles to the Blackberry Bliss ice cream scoop. I hit the images with the Heat Tool to ensure the ink was dry. I applied liquid glue across the top edge of the cones and topped with the ice cream scoops. I added Wink of Stella to the sprinkles for a little sparkle. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals (top) and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (point of cone) to the backs of the cones.

I stamped the sentiment on the Stitched So Sweetly panel with Tuxedo Black Ink and tied the colored ribbon around the panel with a bow. I popped the ice cream cones on over the ribbon and added the decorated die cut to the front panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

With Bermuda Bay Ink, I stamped “Happy Birthday” on the inside of the card and an ice cream scoop on the front of the Basic White Medium Envelope. I masked the ice cream scoop and stamped the cone image in 2nd Generation Pumpkin Pie Ink and the crosshatch image in 1st Generation Pumpkin Pie Ink. I added the “Hope It’s Sweet” inside the card with Tuxedo Black Ink.

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Collection Birthday Card

Confession…I’m not especially fond of butterflies. Pleasant surprise….I love the new Butterfly Brilliance Collection. The images in the Butterfly Brilliance Stamp are beautifully detailed and varied, plus they have soft lines and shading which create wonderful depth and coloring. The Brilliant Wings Dies coordinate to cut 1 to 6 (at once) butterflies either stamped or from the awesome Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper. The stamp and die bundle is carrying over into the new 2021-22 Annual Catalog, but the beautiful DSP is only available until May 3rd. Details are at the end of the post. I hope you enjoy the card! Happy Easter to you and yours!


The Paper Cuts 

  • Basic White Thick Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″ (card base) and 2 1/4″ x 1 3/4″ (label)
  • Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper: 4″ x 5 1/4″ (front), 5 3/4″ x 2 3/8″ (env), 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside), and the die cut butterfly.

The Creating

  • With Just Jade Ink, I stamped the Happy Birthday from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set on the small white cardstock and then passed it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the die from Tasteful Labels Dies.
  • I cut the Just Jade butterfly from the Butterfly Bijou DSP with the coordinating die from the Brilliant Wings Dies.
  • I stamped the inside greeting from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set with Just Jade Ink.
  • I adhered the front DSP panel, the stamped label, the DSP strip, and the larger strip to the envelope flap with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive. I used my Paper Snips to trim the excess paper from the envelope flap.
  • The butterfly is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The putty end of the Take Your Pick Tool helped me lift and place 3 Pearl Basic Jewels to embellish the card front.

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! 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! A Touch of Ink – 4 Days of Sale-A-Bration Left

I used A Touch of Ink Photopolymer Stamp Set from the Jan – 28 Feb 2021 Sale-A-Bration Brochure for this card. This set is a mega set with two sheets of stamps including two step stamping and greetings. It is free with a $100 retail purchase during Sale-A-Bration which ends Sunday, February 28, 2021. There are more details about Sale-A-Bration at the bottom of the post.

The Paper Cuts

  • Thick Basic White Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base)
  • Gold Foil Sheets: 4″ x 5 1/4″ (Tip: I cut the middle out with the 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle to use on another project).
  • Vellum Cardstock: 2″ x 2 1/4″
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 3 3/4″ x 1″
  • True Love Designer Series Paper: 3 3/4″ x 5″ (front), 5 1/4″ x 1/2″ (for inside) and 5 3/4″ x 2 3/8″ (env)

The Creating

  • Stamp the butterfly image from A Touch of Ink Photopolymer Stamp Set on the Vellum Cardstock with VersaMark Ink. Sprinkle with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and melt with the Heat Tool. Add Wink of Stella to the wings, if desired. Fussy cut with Paper Snips leaving a narrow border.
  • Stamp the greeting from A Touch of Ink Photopolymer Stamp Set on the Basic Black Cardstock with VersaMark Ink. Sprinkle with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and melt with the Heat Tool.
  • Stamp “Happy Birthday” from Happy Thoughts Cling Stamp Set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on the inside of the card.
  • Adhere the layers to the card front and inside with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I only added the glue to the body of the butterfly which allows the wings to curl off the card about 1/8″. It will easily slide into the envelope, be flat for mailing and resume the curl when removed.
  • Add 3 Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to embellish the card front.
  • Adhere the 1/2″ strip of the True Love Designer Series Paper to the inside edge of the card and the larger piece to a Basic White Medium Envelope flap with Mutlipurpose Liquid Glue. Trim excess DSP from the envelope with Paper Snips.

Stampin’ Up! True Love Birthday Card for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Welcome back to another Amy’s Inkin’ Krew blog hop!  This month we are all creating projects with a “Birthday” theme. My birthday card spotlights the True Love Designer Series Paper from the January – June 2021 Mini Catalog which is all beautiful patterns in black and white. Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • True Love Designer Series Paper: largest rectangle die cut from Stitched Rectangle Dies, 5 1/4″ x 3/8″ (inside), 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ (envelope) and the colored and fussy cut flowers and leaves.
  • Rich Razzleberry Cardstock: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ (card base) and the 3rd largest scallop circle die cut from Layering Circles Dies.
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 3 7/8″ and the “Happy” die from Word Wishes Dies.
  • Basic White Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 4″ and the 4th largest smooth circle die cut from Layering Circles Dies.

The Creating

  • I used Rich Razzleberry Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends to color the floral images. I used Old Olive Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends to color the leaves and stem. I highlighted the floral centers with a shadow of Light Smokey Slate Stampin’ Blend. In total, there is a cluster of 3 flowers, a bud with a leaf and a separate flower and leaf to layer underneath. After coloring I fussy cut with Paper Snips leaving a narrow margin of white.
  • I aligned the “Happy” die cut on the white circle die cut and stamped “Birthday” from the Well Said Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the die cut above the stamped sentiment and to adhere the circles together.
  • I stamped the inside sentiment on the Basic White panel with Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the DSP strip and a fussy cut flower image with liquid glue. This flower was salvaged from the edge of the DSP and trimmed slightly with my Paper Trimmer to align with the edges of my panel.
  • The card was assembled with liquid glue with the exception of the large cluster of flowers which is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The envelope flap panel was trimmed with Paper Snips after adhering.
  • I colored 3 Rhinestone Basic Jewels with the Rich Razzleberry Dark Stampin’ Blend to embellish the card front.

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Birthday Card

This card features the Prized Peony bundle which includes the Prized Peony stamp set and Peony dies. It’s one of those bundles that offers many design options and ease of creating. I’ve posted 3 other cards from this set so far and each one is very different. I think this is my favorite (at least so far!). I would love to hear which one is your favorite. Enjoy!

The Paper

  • Very Vanilla Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ and 5 x 3 3/4″
  • Just Jade Cardstock: 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ and a scrap for the sentiment
  • Terracotta Tile Cardstock: 5″ x 3 1/4″ (front) and 5 1/4″ x 4″ (inside)
  • Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper: approx 3 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ for image & die
  • Very Vanilla Medium Envelope

The Creating

  • I used that Stamparatus to stamp the large peony image with StazOn Jet Black Ink on the Watercolor Paper. Tips: 1) the watercolor paper has more texture than standard cardstock and the Stamparatus allows restamping multiple times for a great image (I stamped this one 3 times).2) StazOn ink is alcohol based so when watercoloring it won’t bleed. 3) you will need StazOn Cleaner to get this ink off your stamp
  • I used Petal Pink, Terracotta Tile, Just Jade and Shaded Spruce ink pads with the smallest Water Painter to color the image. Tips: 1) squeeze the lid and bottom of the stamp pad together to get an ink pallet on the top. 2) Lay a base of the lighter color (i.e., Petal Pink on the flowers) and then add the darker color (Terracotta Tile) in the shaded areas of the stamped image. Let dry or use your Heat Tool between colors/layers. 3) Keep a paper towel handy to dab extra water from your Water Painter to control the color intensity… the wetter the lighter the color will be.
  • Die cut the watercolored image with your die cutting machine.
  • Emboss the smaller Terracotta panel with the Dainty Diamonds 3-D folder.
  • Rub the Basic Black scrap with the Embossing Buddy. Stamp the sentiment in VersaMark ink, sprinkle with White embossing powder and melt with the Heat Tool. Fussy cut with your snips.
  • Adhere the embossed Terracotta panel to the Basic Black Panel with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive. Adhere the peony on top. Tie the Vanilla ribbon in a knot and trim ends. Apply the sentiment with Mini Glue Dots.
  • Adhere the Just Jade panel to the card front. Add the other panels.

For the Inside & the Envelope

  • Stamp the sentiment in black on the Very Vanilla inside panel. Add the two peony images with 2nd Generation Terracotta ink. Adhere to the Terracotta panel and then to the card base.
  • Stamp the peony in First Generation Terracotta ink on the envelope front and flap.

Stampin’ Up! Playful Pets Birthday Card

Monday is my husband’s birthday, so this card is for him. It features the Pampered Pets bundle and the coordinating Playful Pets Designer Series Paper and Playful Pets Trinkets. I chose this set because we have owned two Salt and Pepper Miniature Schnauzers and currently a sweet Kerry Blue Terrier named Keelan O’Shea. I’ll post his picture at the end. I’ll also give some tips on getting those little bitty paw prints on your card. Enjoy!

The Paper

  • Real Red Cardstock: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ and a Heart Punch.
  • Basic Black Cardstock:  4″ x 5 1/4″ and a paw print die.
  • Playful Pets DSP: 4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″, a 5″ x 1/4″ strip and 2″ x 5 3/4″
  • Whisper White Cardstock: largest Stitched So Sweetly scallop frame, dog die cut, scrap for dog bowl and 5 1/4″ x 4″ panel.

The Creating

  • Stamp the dog and dog bowl in Tuxedo Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Color with Smoky Slate Dark, Basic Black Light/Dark (nose) and Real Red Dark (collar) Stampin’ Blends. I used the Color Lifter to lighten the inside of the bowl. Fussy cut the dog bowl with Paper Snips and die cut the dog.
  • Use an exact knife to cut the front curve of the dog bowl opening. Use a bone folder to curve the fibers of the dog bowl. Insert a dog bone trinket and secure with a Mini Glue Dot to the back of the bowl. This will help hide the trinket loop.
  • Die cut a paw print die from Basic Black being careful not to disturb it as it exits your die cutting machine. Carefully lift the extra cardstock leaving the paw pieces on the plate. Place a small piece of Press and Seal Saran Wrap over the pieces and burnish with a Bone Folder. Carefully lift off the plate. If the pieces don’t come with the wrap, stop and burnish again until it does. Flip the wrap over and apply a small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue to each piece of the largest paw print. Apply it to the front corner of your Heart punch and press to secure. Slowly lift the wrap leaving the paw pieces in place. Save the other two prints on the wrap.
  • Adhere the Basic Black panel to the card front. Add the stripe DSP and top it with the scallop frame die. Adhere the heart to the right corner. Stamp your sentiment in the left corner. This one is from Peaceful Moments (my favorite sentiment set).
  • Add the bowl and trinket with a Mini Glue Dot on each side. (If mailing I recommend you pad the front).
  • Pop up the dog die cut with Stampin’ Dimensionals. So cute!

The Inside & the Envelope

  • Stamp the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Ink.
  • Adhere the stripe strip along the bottom edge of the Whisper White panel. Adhere to the inside of the card.
  • Adhere the medium paw print above the sentiment.
  • Adhere the DSP to the envelope flap and trim with Paper Snips.
  • I added the small paw print to my card front next to hubby’s name and added a dog bowl which I colored with Real Red Dark Stampin’ Blend. I used the Color Lifter to lighten the inside of the bowl.

As promised…here is a picture of our fur baby. We don’t have children so he has us totally wrapped. I would have colored the dog on the card black like him, but we joke about how hard it is to get a good picture of him because he is so black so I colored the dog gray. Kerry Blue are jet black as puppies and at 18 months begin to lighten to a slate gray as they age.
