Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Birthday 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper, Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Seasonal Labels Dies for my card today.

Here’s our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of the Neutrals DSP to a Soft Suede card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the tree trunk image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the solid image of the treetop from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink and the detailed treetop image in Pumpkin Pie Ink over the Crushed Curry image. I cut the image out using the largest die from the Seasonal Labels Dies.

I adhered the die cut image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out using the smaller die from the Seasonal Labels Dies. I adhered a piece of Crumb Cake Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack to the artwork using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the twine using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the tree trunk image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the treetop images from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie Inks. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree images from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Neutrals DSP to the envelope flap.

Available Now!!

Some things are great on their own but become epic when they are paired with something else: cereal and milk, toast and butter, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. We may be biased, but our favorite combo is our stamp sets and dies—and that’s what the Perfect Partners promotion is all about! 

We created six new dies that coordinate with stamp sets in the 2022–2023 Annual Catalog and the July–December 2022 Mini Catalog. These coordinating dies will only be available during this promotion and will not be offered in any catalog.  

These stamp sets and dies are available separately or as a bundle. By buying the bundle, you and your customers will save 10% off the retail price. 

Put these wonderful stamp sets and dies together for more papercrafting fun!
