Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Thank You Card

This card is made with the Beauty of Friendship Bundle from the upcoming 2021-22 Annual Catalog. This is my first time using it and it was so much fun to create with! I’m already juggling ideas for the next card. I also pulled in two current Designer Series Papers: Forever Greenery DSP and Natural Touch Specialty DSP (which has a beautiful wood texture). I hope you enjoy!


The Paper Cuts 

  • Garden Green Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base), 3″ x 3 1/2″ (tree die cut), and 4″ x 2″ (curvy die cuts).
  • Basic White Cardstock: two 4″ x 5 1/4″ panels (front and inside) and 3″ x 1″ (sentiment label)
  • Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper: 3″ x 3 1/2″ (tree die cut), 4″ x 1/2″ (inside), and 6′ x 2 1/2″ (env)
  • Natural Touch Specialty Designer Series Paper: 3″ x 4 1/2″ (tree trunk die cut)
  • Misty Moonlight Cardstock: 1″ x 1″ (bird die cut)

The Creating

  • With the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine I die cut the tree trunk with branches die from Beautiful Trees Dies in the Natural Touch Specialty Designer Series Paper, the two birds die from the Misty Moonlight Cardstock, the dappled tree top die from the Forever Greenery DSP, and the tree top outline die and the two “grass” die cuts (using the smooth edge of the dotted die from Curvy Dies) from Garden Green Cardstock.
  • I used a Blending Brush to add Misty Moonlight Ink to a Basic White Panel. I began darker at the top and gradually lighter to the bottom for an ombre effect.
  • I stamped the sentiments from the Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink on the Basic White strip and the inside panel. I die cut the strip with the thinner label die in Beautiful Trees Dies and used the Triple Banner Punch to flag the end.
  • I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the tree trunk die cut to the tree top outline die cut and added the dappled tree top. This worked fine, but next time, I’ll pull out the Adhesive Sheets (I’ve included them in the products linked below) prior to die cutting to make this step easier. I also adhered the layered tree onto the center of the card front panel and topped with the two curvy layers at the base.
  • I also adhered the sentiment tag, inside panel and DSP strip with liquid glue.
  • I popped the birds up with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and embellished with Garden Green Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
  • I adhered the wider DSP strip to the Basic White Medium Envelope flap and trimmed the excess with the Paper Snips.

Stampin’ Up! Quite Curvy Sweet Birthday Card

This card had me at pink, green and gingham! It is a CASEd design from Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Jane Proffitt. It uses the exquisite Quite Curvy Bundle. Time is running out to get the Variety version of this Bundle which includes the complementary Curvy Christmas Stamp Set and Classic Christmas Designer Series Paper. I’ve linked both versions below.

The Paper Cuts

  • Just Jade Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ for the card base and 5 1/4″ x 4″ panel.
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 5″ x 3″ panel, a Timeless Label punch, 5″ x 3 3/4″ for the inside and 3″ x 2 1/2″ for the floral die cuts.

The Creating

  • Use the dotted die from Curvy Dies to cut the Just Jade panel. Place the smaller, lower panel in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and pass through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine. Adhere the embossed panel to the bottom of the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  • Place the Whisper White 5″ x 3″ panel over the dotted Just Jade panel as it will be adhered (showing the top/side borders). When you lift it up off the work surface you can see the shadow of the edge of the Just Jade cardstock underneath. Use this as a guide to line up the Curvy Die deco border so that the curves match. Pass through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine. Tip: You can trim the top edge to adjust the fit if needed, so it’s safer to err toward too wide. Adhere to the Just Jade dotted panel. Wrap with the Just Jade Gingham Ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and tie in a bow.
  • Use Gray Granite Ink to stamp the floral vine from the Quite Curvy Stamp Set 3 times on the 3″ x 2 1/2″ Whisper White cardstock. Color with Just Jade and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends. Cut out with the coordinating die.
  • Use Just Jade Ink to stamp the greeting on the Timeless Label punch out. Adhere 2 of the floral vine die cuts to the top and bottom edge. Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhere over the ribbon on the Whisper White deco edge panel. Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhere to the card front.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the inside Whisper White panel with Gray Granite Ink.
  • Adhere the 3rd floral vine image.
