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).
• 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

This card features the Bloom & Grow photopolymer stamp setin the Stampin’ Up! 2020-21 Annual Catalog. I’ve wanted to CASE the card on page 116 since the catalog came out. The circle is easier to create than it looks because of the built in curve of the stamp. I did change up the tag a little. Enjoy!
The Paper Cuts
Petal Pink Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ & 3 1/2″ x 1″
Whisper White Cardstock: 4″ x 5 1/4″ and 4 1/4″ x 4″
Using Gray Granite Ink, stamp the leaf and berry sprig in a circle, negating to ink the stem, on the Whisper White 4 1/2 x 4 panel. The photopolymer makes it easy to line up.

Dry fit the placement on the card front and using Petal Pink Ink stamp the rose spray on the card front peeking out on the top and bottom of the stamped panel. Adhere the panel with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
Stamp the sentiment in Gray Granite twice on scraps of Whisper White Cardstock. Fussy cut “Forever” from one with Paper Snips. Use a trimmer to cut out “Starts Today”.
Use the Triple Banner Punch to flag the ends of the Petal Pink strip. Apply liquid glue to the bottom of the “Forever” letters and adhere half on, half off the top. Adhere “Starts Today” near the bottom. Tie a knot in the Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon and apply with a Mini Glue Dot. Pop the tag on with Dimensionals and add Wink of Stella to the “Forever” letters.
