Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Thank You Card with Fading Technique

I used the Beauty of Friendship Bundle (Beauty of Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set and Beautiful Trees Dies) to make this thank you card. I love the soft blended colors and the fading trees that make it feel like we’re in a misty forest. It was inspired by a card created by Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, LeeAnn Greff. Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Evening Evergreen Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base)
  • Very Vanilla Cardstock: die cut from Stitched So Sweetly Dies and two 4″ x 5 1/4″ panels.
  • Pool Party Cardstock: scrap for the bird die cut.

The Creating

With Evening Evergreen Ink, I stamped the sentiments on the Stitched So Sweetly die cut and on the lower right corner of the inside panel. Then I stamped the trees on the two Very Vanilla Cardstock panels and the Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I used the Fading Technique which is simply to ink once and stamp multiple times until the ink fades away in order to create depth (as here) or motion (ie, like a ball rolling). Be sure when you do this that the full stamp image is evenly on the cardstock, or, if it does overhang the edge of the card that your subsequent images are a little less than the previous one so that the darker ink on the part of the stamp that overhung the edge (and did not stamp off) does not show on the next image thus making it two tone.

I used Blending Brushes to add first Soft Succulent Ink and then Evening Evergreen Ink along the “forest floor” and then Pool Party Ink and Bermuda Bay Ink for the sky line.

To assemble the card I used Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive to adhere the two panels to the card base. I popped the sentiment label up with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added the die cut bird with a Mini Glue Dot.

To embellish, I added Pool Party Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

If you have any questions or need a catalog, I’d be very happy to be your Demonstrator.   You can drop me an email at stampdabbles@gmail.com. I’d love to hear from you!

    Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Thank You Card

    I used the Artistically Inked Cling Stamp Set along with the coordinating Expressions in Ink 12×12 Specialty Designer Series Paper for this Thank You Card. If you have followed me for long you may have noticed that I often use pink and green. This is a new found discovery of my own! It seems to work well and I hope you enjoy the card!

    The Paper Cuts

    • Polished Pink Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
    • Expressions in Ink 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper: 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ (front panel)
    • Basic White Cardstock: Tasteful Label Die Cut and 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside panel)

    The Creating

    I stamped the roses in Polished Pink Ink and the leaves in Shaded Spruce Ink on the Designer Series Paper, the inside panel, and the envelope.

    I stamped the “thanks” greeting in Polished Pink on the Tasteful Label die cut. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back.

    I adhered the front and inside layers with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive. I added the gold die cut elements from the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack (I think someone at Stampin’ Up! is trying to improve our vocabulary and spelling) with dots of Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.

    I added the “thanks” label and three Evening Evergreen 2021-23 In Color Jewels (they coordinate beautifully) to complete the card.

    Stampin’ Up! 2021-2022 Annual Catalog Sneak Peek – Pansy Patch Thank You Card

    The new Stampin’ Up! 2021-2022 Annual Catalog is going to go live on May 4th! Here’s a sneak peek of the Pansy Patch Bundle which includes the Pansy Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Pansy Dies at a 10% discount. I also used the coordinating Pansy Petals 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper and the new 2021-2023 In Colors. Enjoy!


    The Paper Cuts 

    • Soft Succulent Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 8 1/2″ (card base), 6 leaf detail die cuts.
    • Evening Evergreen: 6 embossed leaf die cuts.
    • Vellum Cardstock: 3 of the large embossed pansy leaf die cuts and 3 of the single embossed pansy leaf die cuts.
    • Basic White Cardstock: 3 large pansy leaf edging die cuts, 3 single leaf edging die cuts, a 2″ smooth layering circle die cut and a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel (inside).
    • Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper: 4″ x 5 1/4″ (front), 5 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ (env) and 4′ x 1/2″ (inside).
    • Bumblebee Cardstock: 1 pansy center die cut (cuts 3)
    • Fresh Freesia Cardstock: 3 larger pansy center die cuts.

    The Creating

    • With Evening Evergreen Ink, I stamped the sentiments from the Pansy Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set on the Layering Circles die cut and on the inside panel.
    • I placed the Vellum Cardstock pansy leaf die cuts and the Basic White pansy leaf tips on my Silicone Craft Mat and applied Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the backs fo the white tips. I lined them up on the tips of the vellum petals. Then I applied glue to the Fresh Freesia centers and placed them on the larger Vellum pansy petals. Tip: there are straight lines to line up to the edge of the white tips. Then I added the Bumblebee smaller centers with 1/2 of a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional. Tip: Mini Glue Dots would work too if you would like it a little less raised. I applied liquid glue to the back of the layer pansy so it was behind the Fresh Freesia die cut and wouldn’t be seen through the Vellum. I placed this on top of the single pansy leaf die cut.
    • I applied liquid glue to the Soft Succulent detail leaves and adhered them to the Evening Evergreen embossed die cuts.

    • I arranged the die cuts on the card front and adhered them in place. The pansy on the left is popped up with Mini Dimensionals (behind the Fresh Freesia) and the other elements are adhered with liquid glue.
    • I added three Fresh Freesia 2021-2023 In Color Jewels. These are so pretty…there is an iridescent coating that really shines.
    • I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to apply the inside panel, the small DSP strip to the lower edge of the inside panel and the larger strip to the envelope flap, trimming the excess with Paper Snips.

    Stampin’ Up! Sweet Ice Cream Thank You Card

    This card is made with the Sweet Ice Cream Bundle from the January to June 2021 Mini Catalog. It contains the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch and the Sweet Ice Cream Photopolymer Stamp Set. This set is super cute, summery and includes images and well sized sentiments for the inside and outside of your cards. Enjoy!


    The Paper Cuts 

    • Flirty Flamingo Cardstock: 8 1/2″ x 4 1/4, scored at 5 1/2″ (card base)
    • Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper: 5″ x 3 3/4″ (front)
    • Basic White Cardstock: 3 3/4″ x 1 3/4 (approx) die cut from Stitched Rectangle Dies (front), two 5 1/4″ x 4″ (front and inside) and 5″ x 2″ (stamping)

    The Creating

    • With Flirty Flamingo Ink I stamped two ice cream scoops and three ice cream drips on the Basic White Cardstock. I also stamped the sentiments on the Stitched Rectangle die cut and inside panel. Then, I stamped the ice cream scoops on the inside panel and the envelope. These are masked and are second generation impressions (stamp off then on). TIPS: To make the mask I stamped the ice cream scoop on a scrap of computer paper and fussy cut it with my Paper Snips. To create the layers you start with the top image and go backwards…the top scoop first, the middle scoop second.
    • With Soft Suede Ink, I stamped the ice cream cones in second generation ink on the Basic White Cardstock, the inside panel (masking the ice cream) and the envelope. I added the crosshatch image in first generation ink to all.
    • I punched the two stamped ice cream scoops and the stamped cone with the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch. I fussy cut the ice cream drips with Paper Snips.
    • To assemble, I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the Basic White panel (TIP: I cut the 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle Die from the center of this panel to use on another project. No one will ever know!), the DSP panel, and the Stitched Rectangle die cut to the card front. I also used it to adhere the inside panel.
    • I adhered the punched ice cream cone with a glue dot at the point and liquid glue at the top. I adhered the two ice cream scoops together with liquid glue and then popped them on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The ice cream drips are added with Mini Glue Dots to slightly elevate them.
    • I colored three Rhinestone Basic Jewels with the Flirty Flamingo Dark Stampin’ Blend and added them to the card front. I used Wink of Stella to add a line of sparkle to the lower edges of the ice cream scoops.

    Stampin’ Up! Paper Blooms Two for One

    I used the Happy Thoughts Cling Stamp Set from the Jan – June 2021 Mini Catalog and the Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper (free with a $50 retail purchase) from the Jan-Feb 2021 Sale-A-Bration brochure. These products are a perfect pair because of their big bold designs and the card design makes it easy to make two at once. Enjoy!

    The Paper Cuts (for 2 cards)

    • Night of Navy Cardstock: 8 1/2″ x 11″ (card bases) and 3 1/2″ x 3″ (labels)
    • Paper Blooms DSP: two designs 4″ x 5 3/4″
    • Seaside Spray Cardstock: two 4″ x 5 1/2″ (insides)

    The Creating

    • With the Paper Trimmer, score the 8 1/2″ x 11″ Night of Navy Cardstock at 5 1/2″ on the long edge. Cut it at 4 1/4″ on the short edge. You will have 2 card bases. Fold and burnish with the Bone Folder.
    • Line up the two Paper Blooms DSP pieces and cut 1/2″ on the short edge (for two 1/2″ x 4″ strips). Rotate the two DSP pieces and cut 1 3/4″ on the long edge (tfor two 1 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ strips).
    • Use the Timeless Label Punch to punch two labels from the 3 1/2″ x 3″ Night of Navy Cardstock.
    • Stamp the “Happy Birthday” and “Thank You” sentiments from Happy Thoughts Cling Stamp Set with VersaMark Ink. Sprinkle on White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and melt with the Heat Tool. Tip: Use tweezers or a clothes pin to hold the label while heating. Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the backs.
    • With Night of Navy Ink, stamp the sentiments on the Seaside Spray Cardstock panels.
    • Adhere the layers on the card bases as shown with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the attached Stampin’ Dimensionals.
    • Embellish with Pearl Basic Jewels and a knot of Faux Linen Ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack attached with a Mini Glue Dot (the Bakers Twine in this combo would look good too).

    Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Thank You Card

    I used the Dragonfly Garden Bundle from the new January – June 2021 Mini Catalog to create this card designed by Australian Demonstrator, Kathryn Ruddick @ katlodesigns.com. It is a stamp and punch bundle with awesome greetings for anytime of the year. Enjoy!

    The Creating

    • Use Misty Moonlight Ink to stamp the dragonfly and the Thank You sentiment on a scrap of Thick Whisper White or Thick Basic White Cardstock. Use the Timeless Label Punch to punch out the sentiment and the Drangonflies Punch to punch out the dragonfly image.
    • Cut the corner off of a piece of scrap paper (it can be a junk mail letter from your trash bin, but don’t use cardstock) in an L shape about 4 1/2″ down and 3 1/2″ across. This will be a template to mask the center square on the card front. Place it on the front of a Misty Moonlight card from the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Cards and Envelope pack so that the white dots on the left of the card do not show. Stamp the flower image in Misty Moonlight Ink. Reverse your template before stamping the 3rd one on the right edge so that it covers those dots there.
    • Stamp the dragonfly on the envelope front and stamp the floral image and the greeting on the inside of the card in the Misty Moonlight Ink.
    • Wind the Misty Moonlight/silver Baker’s Twine from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack around 4 fingers 3 times, overlapping the start and stop point, and snip. Grasping the overlap point, bring it to the center so it will be hidden under the label. Run a small strip of Stampin’ Seal adhesive where the sentiment label will go on the card and press the Baker’s Twine onto it. Place two Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the label at the center top and the bottom and adhere it over the twine.
    • Pop on the punched dragonfly on the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
    • Add three silver Metallic Pearls and a little Wink of Stella on the flower centers.
