Saying “Hi” to the Stampin’ Up! Alphabetized Stamp!

Stampin up mary fish stamp it pretty order alphabetized envelope punch board
A quick, bold background plus a charming font makes for a simple and pretty card.  I used the Stampin’ Up! Alphabetized background stamp (dipped in Rich Razzleberry ink) as the focus of my card.
PPA 179 colorsThe color combination of Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry and Crumb Cake is from this week’s Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge (PPA179).  I previously used this combo of colors for these holiday tags.


  • A popped up “hi” brings the alphabet to life.
  • Rich Razzleberry Candy Dots (from the Brights Candy Dots assortment), accent three of the corners.

  • A coordinating Rich Razzleberry bow dresses up the top left.  I used Stampin’ Up! Rich Razzleberry 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon.  Each end is adhered behind the corner (rather than wrapped around) for a clean fit.
  • This 5 1/2″ square card base calls for a custom envelope.  Easy to do with the Stampin’ Up! Envelope Punch Board.  The liner was even easier using my Envelope Liner 1 Minute to WOW! Video Tutorial.

  1. Love, love, love! Rich Razzleberry be mine!

  2. This is such a GREAT card, Mary…..however, upon checking at the POst Office this am, I learned that this particular square card will cost upwards of 80 cents to mail…hmmmm….am re-thinking my inclination to purchase this stamp. It is beautiful, though.

  3. What a fun card! I love the background stamp (wonder how I missed that). Perfect card to send to someone you haven’t had an opportunity to talk to in a while. Great job.

  4. Love it Mary! So clever!

  7. Mary, This card is so cute. I love the color combo. I love how you made the Hi a focal point.
    I also love the envelope liner. This makes a great card for somebody. Have a wonderful day, Ellen Hinds

  8. I follow a lot of blogs and am a Pinterest Addict. This is the first time outside of a catty that I have seen a project posted using this cute stamp. Love how you kept it the focal point with appropriate interesting touches.

  9. I think this image is so cute! I am always so tempted to buy it!

    Oh Mary that was so funny. I was wondering why there was a gold dot on the card. Thought it might be a shadow or a mis-photo. Ha. Ha. I LOVE it. Great use of this stamp. Glad I “got it” before I read the post. You make these colors look great together. Thanks a bunch. 🙂
