Stampin' Up! Artistically Inked Bundle Birthday Card

Today I have a birthday card for you with quite a dramatic composition with the gold and black. It uses the Artistically Inked bundle from the new 2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

Stampin Up Artistically Inked. 2021 birthday card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

 

Step by Step Instructions

This card was so simple to make though! Here are the step by step instructions.

  1. The base card is a standard C6 top folding Basic Black card.
  2. The next layer is a layer oif Basic Black 10cm x 14cm.
  3. Cut one of the floral die cuts from the Artistic Dies in Gold Metallic Specialty Paper (see links at the bottom of the post).
  4. Adhere this to the card using the Fine Tip Glue Pen. Position it so that about 2/3 of the die will be showing.
  5. Add a 3cm strip of the Shaded Spruce / Just Jade and Gold piece from the Expressions in Ink DSP.
  6. Cut a 0.7cm strip of Shaded Spruce cardstock and adhere that over the join of the DSP and cardfront.
  7. Stamp the greeting from Artistically Inked stamp set in black ink onto a strip of white cardstock. Cut slanted ends.
  8. Cut a Basic Black piece 1/2 cm longer and 1cm wide. Adhere the sentiment piece onto this., leaving about 0.3-0.4cm at the bottom and equal amounts each end (which should be about 0.25cm each end).
  9. Adhere this combined sentiment piece to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  10. Add some Gilded Gems to finish the card.

Stampin' Up! Hand Penned Suite and Encircled in Beauty Dies

Hello friends.

Today I wanted to share a card that was quick and easy to create, but which I love because it uses 3 of my favourite things from the new Annual Catalogue.

Stampin Up 2021 thank you card using Hand-Penned Petals bundle and Encircled in Beauty Dies. Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Melbourne Australia.

The 3 favourite items I have used on this card (you can check them out in the links at the end of the post) are: 

  • The Hand-Penned Petals Suite (but you already knew that from previous posts, right?)
  • The gorgeous Encircled in Beauty Dies. I love how circle dies break up the straight lines in cards.
  • The Hand-Penned Memories and More Cards and Envelopes. I LOVE these! They are pre-printed and ready to go, plus incredible value. Just $17.50 for 20 cards and coordinating patterned envelopes. They make a perfect card base for stamped cards, or cards made using the elements in the Hand-Penned Memories and More card pack.

The secons layer of the card is a strip of the Hand-Penned DSP (5cm wide x 13.5cm) with a banner end cut in one end. The largest Encircled in Beauty die is a great size to use with this image. I stamped the image in Basic Gray, and over-stamped the flower using Pale Papaya. For the leaves, I used my Mint Macaron Stampin' Blends to colour them. This picks up the colours in the Hand-Penned DSP I have used as the first layer. To finish my card off, I have used some of the Genial Gems from the Hand-Penned Suite.
