Hello greeting card using Stampin' Up! Artistically Inked Stamps and Dies


  • Stampin' Up! Artistically Inked Stamp Set
  • Coming Soon:  Color Refresh
  • Stampin' Up! introduces Online Exclusives offering

I decided to create a series of greeting cards using Artistically Inked Stamp Set and the coordinating Artistic Dies.  You can see the first in the series here.  Today's card uses the same color theme:  Pale Papaya, Gold Foil, Basic White, and floral designs from the Expressions In Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper. As mentioned yesterday, this paper is retired, and I know many of you still have this beautiful paper in your stash.  So this is a great way to finally cut into it.  The paper includes gold foil elements, which pair perfectly with the Gold Foil Sheets and other gold elements I'm using as accents.  The Artistically Inked Stamp Set and Artistic Dies are currently available in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog, pg. 105.   I created layers of Pale Papaya and Gold Foil sheets and used the Artistic Dies to die cut Gold Foil Sheet stems and leaves to accent my card.  The sentiment is heat embossed in Gold Embossing Powder, and accented with Gold Adhesive-back Swirls that were  originally part of the Fitting Florets Collection, and sold out almost immediately.  You'll love creating a collection of "wow" cards using the Artistically Inked Stamp Set and coordinating Artistic Dies.

The basecard for today's card is Papaya Cardstock.  Then I used the Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder on a piece of Basic White Cardstock and matted it with Gold Foil Sheet. I used a floral print from the Expressions In Ink 12" X 12" Specialty Designer Series Paper and matted it in Gold Foil Sheet for my next layer. Although this floral paper is retired, you can use the Artistically Inked Stamp Set to create similar images on Basic White Cardstock.

Next, I used one of the dies from the Artistic Dies and die cut a leaves and stems to from Gold Foil Sheets to tuck between my floral layer and my dry embossed layer.  I also used gold cord from the Simply Elegant Trim pack to tuck behind my sentiment label and added a bow of gold cord to the corner of my sentiment.

To finish my card, I die cut a sentiment label and matte using the Something Fancy Dies.  Then I stamped the "hello" from Artistically Inked stamp set in Versamark ink onto the Basic White label, covered it with Gold Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I matted it on with a Pale Papaya label, added dimensionals, and before adding it to my card front.  I added a few Gold Adhesive-backed Swirls to add a bit more bling.

Its that time of the year when Stampin' Up! refreshes the color line adding several new colors to keep the product line fresh.  Additionally, the 2021-2023 In Colors -- Polished Pink, Pale Papaya, Evening Evergreen & Fresh Freesia -- are expected to retire, unless one or more are kept as part of the color refresh.  Demonstrators will hear about the refreshed color collection on 29 March.  that means customers will hear the details shortly thereafter.

As new colors are announced and we say goodbye to others, we often see retiring colors sell out.  Since these products will not be restocked, now is the time to check your stock of cardstock, ink pads and refills, Blends and Markers and place your order for the items you plan to continue using.  I just put more Fresh Freesia on order!
