Cycle Celebration 1 – Stampin’ Up! Card Tutorial #616

Hey There,

Check out this new set, Cycle Celebration from Stampin’ Up!   The images in this stamp set are going to be so fun to work with.  I have a million ideas floating around in my head. .. . . . . . . along with some other things, like old Gilligan’s Island episodes, lol.    Now I’m showing my age, yikes.

Anyhow, check out the tutorial for this card below.


I’ve added the featured card of the day to my sales page where you will also find some great deals on retired stamp sets and my brayer video.  CLICK HERE TO CHECK IT OUT


Now on with today’s tutorial. . . . .  . .

Project Supplies:

Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Cycle Celebration (item number 130273)

Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White, Calypso Coral and Designer Series Pattern Paper from the Neutrals Stack

Ink: Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Stazon Jet Black

Accessories: Stampin’ Up!  Sponge, Versamark Pad, Post it note, Circles Framelits Collection, Big Shot Machine, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Crumb Cake Seam Binding, White Gel Pen, Stampin’ Write Markers (Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand and Blush Blossom), Subtles Candy Dots, Stampin’ Dimensionals, and Piercing tool

Stamped the Soda Bottle with Stazon Jet Black ink on a scrap of Whisper White card stock.


Colored the ribbon in with a Blush Blossom marker.


Added Calypso Coral marker to the right and left sides of the ribbon and then blended it in with a Blush Blossom marker.

Colored the straw using Crumb Cake and Calypso Coral markers.  Also colored the dots in the soda Crumb Cake.

Colored the actual bottle using a Sahara Sand marker and added more Calypso Coral marker, blended with Blush Blossom to darken the ribbon.

Cut the image out.  Stampin’ Up! paper snips make quick work of this.

Put the image face down on a Versamark pad and then pressed it in the pad to get Versamark all over the front of the image.

Heat embossed the image using clear embossing powder and a heat gun.  Don’t burn your fingers.  I used my piercing tool to hold the image in place while I heated it.

Punched a 2.5″ circle of Daffodil Delight card stock and masked the top 2/3rds of the card stock with a post it note.  Sponged Crumb Cake ink over the bottom unmasked area to create something for the bottle to sit on.

Removed the mask and sponged Soft Suede ink around the edges.

Got out the Circle Framelits Collection and die cut a 2 3/4″ circle from Whisper White card stock and a 3″ circle from Calypso Coral.  I could have used the 2.5″ circle from the Framelits Collection to die cut the Daffodil Delight piece, but I didn’t know what I was going to do with it when I started, lol.


Cut a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of Calypso Coral, 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Crumb Cake DSP, 3.5″ square piece of Calypso Coral and 3.25″ square piece of Soft Suede DSP

Added a piece of Crumb Cake Seam Binding to the middle, adhering in back with Glue dots.

Slipped two pieces of Ribbon under the adhered one and tied them in a bow.


Layered my main image panel and added White Gel Pen dots to the Calypso Coral piece.


Added the circle layers with Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it up and then added 4 Calypso Coral Candy Dots.  Attached the card front to a Whisper White card base.

Here is the finished card measuring 4.25″ x 5.5″.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and will give it a try.

Until my next post. . . . . .

Huge Hugs!
