Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Anniversary Card

I used the Art Gallery Bundle to create this card for my sister and brother-in-law’s anniversary. I knew I wanted to use the Greenery Embossing Folder to echo the floral images, but what I didn’t realize is that my Happy Anniversary stamp is in a retired set. Oh no! I will have to fix that…as I looked through the new 2021-22 Annual Catalog I found a pretty “Happy Anniversary” sentiment in the Many Messages stamp set (pg 42). The font is beautiful and that set is already on my Wish List. Then I saw the “Mr. & Mrs.” stamp in the adjacent Many Happenings stamp set and remembered there was one in the December 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit. So there is the inspiration for tonight’s sentiments…“Necessity is the mother of invention.” And, Paper Pumpkin Kits are great! Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

Blackberry Bliss Cardstock: 4 1/4′′ x 11′′ scored at 5 1/2′′ (card base).
Fresh Freesia Cardstock: 3 3/4” x 5 1/2” (front panel)
Basic White Cardstock: Tasteful Label Dies die cut (front
sentiment), 3 1/4” x 5 1/2” (embossed panel), 4” x 5 1/4” (inside panel) and 3 1/4” x 5” (stamped, die cut images).

The Creating

• I began by running the Basic White front panel through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine inside the Greenery Embossing Folder.
• I adhered the embossed panel to the Fresh Freesia panel and then both to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
• I placed the 3 1/4” x 5” Basic White Cardstock on my Stamparatus and aligned the floral image from Art Gallery Stamp Set on the left side and picked it up with the door. I masked the stem and leaf portion of the stamp and inked only the floral portion with Fresh Freesia Ink, removed the mask and stamped it. I then masked the floral portion and stamped the greenery with Soft Succulent Ink. I rotated the cardstock 180 degrees and repeated the process. I also added a single image to the inside panel and the envelope in the same way.
• With Clear Block A I stamped the floral accent stamp from Art
Gallery on the floral images with Blackberry Bliss Ink. So pretty!


• The Mr. & Mrs. stamp was a long single line photopolymer set. I clipped between the words with my Paper Snips (don’t be afraid to do this because they can be realigned like puzzle pieces to use straight again), lined them up on the Tasteful Label Dies label on my Stamparatus and stamped it in Blackberry Bliss Ink.
• I ran the two floral images on the panel through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine with the coordinating die from Floral Gallery Dies and applied Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back. I positioned them on the card front with the label die. Once happy with the arrangement I pealed the backing paper and adhered, trimming off anything that overhung the card edges with my Paper Snips.
• I added three Fresh Freesia 2021-23 In Color Jewels.
• Using Blackberry Bliss Ink, I stamped the sentiment from
Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set on the inside panel and adhered the panel with Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings Bundle – 3 Days of Sale-A-Bration Left

I used the Berry Blessings Bundle from the Jan – 28 Feb 2021 Sale-A-Bration Brochure for this card. There is a lot in this bundle…blueberries, blackberries and raspberries and I hadn’t used the raspberries yet! I LOVE this design from the included Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper! It also coordinates with the Sweet Strawberry Bundle from the Jan-June 2021 Mini Catalog (not shown here). How could it get better? This bundle is free with a $100 retail purchase until February 28, 2021 and includes the stamp set and the Designer Series Paper. You’ll find links below. I can’t believe there is only 3 days left until Sale-A-Bration ends. While it’s shorter than normal, the good news is, there will be another Sale-A-Bration in the summer!

The Paper Cuts

  • Pear Pizzazz Cardstock: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ (card base)
  • Basic White Cardstock: 2 3/8″ smooth circle die cut from Layering Circles Dies and 5 1/4″ x 4″ (inside)
  • Real Red Cardstock: 2 1/2″ scallop circle die cut from Layering Circles Dies
  • Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper: 3 1 3/4 x 3 6/8″ die cuts from Stitched So Sweetly Dies (front), 5 1/4″ x 3/8″ (inside) and 5 3/4″ x 2 3/8″ (env)

The Creating

  • With Pear Pizzazz Ink, stamp the sentiment a little below center on the smooth circle and on the inside panel. Add the stem outlines and the the stem fill in second generation (stamp off, then on) to the circle. Mask the stem and stamp the berry outline in Real Red and then the fill in second generation.
(This is my mask. I stamped the berry stem on a Post It note so that the edge I was masking was on the adhesive. I then trimmed the part I would be stamping over with my Paper Snips….do not leave a white edge like when you fussy cut, but trim right on the outside of the stamped line).
  • Adhere the stamped circle to the scallop circle with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back.
  • Adhere the 3 Stitched Rectangle die cuts to the card front leaving even margins.
  • Add a folded piece of the Whisper White Faux Linen Ribbon with Mini Glue Dots to the card front. Top with the stamped circle layers.
  • Add 3 Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
  • Adhere the 3/8″ strip of the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper to the inside and the larger piece to a Basic White Medium Envelope flap with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Trim excess DSP from the envelope with Paper Snips

Stampin’ Up! Jar of Flowers Thinking of You Card

Here is a sneak peak of what’s inside the upcoming Stampin’ Up! 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. This card used the Jar of Flowers and Many Mates stamp sets which will be available for customers to order on June 3rd. It also used the new 2020-2022 In Color Misty Moonlight Cardstock and 6×6 DSP. The inspiration for the design is on page 10 of the catalog. Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Misty Moonlight Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″ card base scored at 5 1/2″ and a 3 3/8″ x 4 5/8″ panel.
  • 2020-2022 In Color DSP: 4″ x 5 1/4″ and a 3/4″ x 5″ strip
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 3 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ and 3 3/4″ x 5″
  • Shaded Spruce Cardstock: 2 1/8″ x 5/8″ scrap

The Creating

  • Adhere te DSP panel to the card front.
  • Stamp the floral image in Tuxedo Black on the Whisper White 3 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ panel. Also stamp it on a PostIt Note catching the sticky edge at the bottom. Trim around the bottom edge on the black stamped line. This will be your mask. It will make the flowers look like they are inside the jar instead of the jar on top of the flowers when you stamp the jar 😉
  • Stamp the jar in Basic Gray Ink with the mask in place as shown above. (I first tried Tuxedo Black, but it came out very dark and I wanted it to be lighter since it is glass).
  • Add the flower stem image with Basic Gray Ink with the mask still in place. Now you can remove it! Taadaa!
  • Color the flower and stems with Stampin’ Blends Combos: Light Seaside Spray, Flirty Flamingo and Call Me Clover. I also used Light Smoky Slate in layers with Light Call Me Clover and Light Seaside Spray for the sprig that looks like Eucalyptus. Don’t be afraid to mix colors 🙂
  • Add Wink of Stella to the reflection marks on the jar.
  • Adhere the colored floral panel to the Misty Moonlight panel.
  • Tie a piece of the Flowers for Every Season Twine around the two panels and tie in a bow. I knotted the end to ensure the three layers didn’t untwist (as in the catalog). Adhere to the DSP on the card front.
  • Rub the Shaded Spruce scrap with the Embossing Buddy to prevent static. Stamp with the sentiment in VersaMark, sprinkle with White Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.
  • Adhere to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Trim if necessary.
  • Add 3 Flowers for Every Season Gems with Mini Glue Dots.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the inside panel with Misty Moonlight Ink and adhere to the inside of the cards. Adhere the DSP strip to the bottom edge.

Links for items used to make this card are listed below or you can browse for other supplies at my Stampin’ Up! shop in the side bar. Use the May Host Code for free gifts from me (if your order is $150 or more you don’t want to use it so that you get Hostess Rewards). See my Rewards Page for full details.

Please let me know if you have any questions or need Stampin’ Up! Catalogs. I can’t wait for you to see the new Annual Catalog and I have them in stock if you don’t already have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.

I would love to know you and to help you create something beautiful.
