Try It Thursday - Stampin' Up Apothecary Art Birthday Card



Good Morning Everyone! This is the newest installment to my blog. Each Thursday, I will post a project that hopefully, you will want to try for yourself. It will also still be in line with my Clean and Simple Style. Today's share is a birthday card made with the New Stampin' Up Apothecary Art Stamp Set.  What's cool about this stamp is that it coordinates with the New Stampin' Up Labels Framelit Dies. These dies come in a set of 6 and work in the Big Shot Machine.  I stamped one of the images from the Apothecary Art Stamp Set and die cut it with one of the Label Framelits to make the focal point of my card. Then I added a few accessories. Bam! A pretty birthday card without a lot of fuss!

Card Measurements:

Early Espresso Card Base: 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"

Cajun Craze Card Stock:  1 1/2" x  5 1/2"

Old Olive Card Stock: 1 1/2" x 5 1/2"


Paper: Cajun Craze,  Early Espresso, Old Olive, Whisper White

Ink: Cajun Craze,  Early Espresso, Old Olive

Stamp: Apothecary Art

Accessories: Stampin' Up Labels Framelit Dies, Big Shot, Stampin' Up Scallop Edge Punch, Early Espresso Satin Ribbon, Halve Back Pearls


These are the New Stampin' Up Framelits Labels



This is the Big Shot Sandwich to cut with the Framelits.  From the bottom you have Tab 2 of the Multipurpose Platform, a clear cutting pad, card stock, Framelit Die edge down on the card stock, then the other clear cutting pad. Run this sandwich through the Big Shot.


To use the Apothecary Art Stamp Set With the Stampin' Up Framelit Dies, stamp your image first on card stock, then use the same sandwich as above to cut it out.



This is just a rough sample of how the image is cut out with the Stampin' Up Framelit Label Dies.

  3. Thank you so much for your kind words Yolanda! I had not played with Cajun Craze in such along time, so I wanted to use it. I didn't realize how well it went with Old Olive!
