Sweet Pictogram Punches 3 x 3 Birthday Card


Stampin up stamping stamp it pretty pictogram punches punch happy birthday 3 x 3 cards blog

I have a quick 3 x 3 card for you today.  This is such a fun size for including with a gift, bouquet of flowers, tucking in a suitcase or packed lunch!


  • I used my Stampin’ Write Markers in Strawberry Slush and Pear Pizzazz to color the vase and stems directly on the red rubber of the stamp.  Give it a few huffs to keep it moist before stamping.


  • The sweet Blushing Bride blooms and vase images are from Pictogram Punches, one of the stamp sets on My Favorite Things list for the 2014-2015 Annual Catalog.
  • Snap!  The three punches in the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack coordinate with the images from Pictogram Punches.
  • I popped out the flower centers in Strawberry Slush using my Stampin’ Up! 1/8″ Handheld Circle Punch.

  • The card is paired with an envelope lined with a Strawberry Slush Chevron pattern from the 2013-2015 Designer Series Paper Stack.  I cropped it using smallest of the Envelope Liners Framelits Dies.  It’s a perfect fit in Stampin’ Up! Square Envelopes (107309).

  1. Hi Bobbi: Memento Tuxedo Black Ink is definitely my “go to” black ink for ALL projects. Not only does it work with Blendabilities Markers (alcohol based markers available to customers July 1), it dries well on Whisper White had offers crisp stamped images. It’s easier to clean up than Stazon Ink (just use Stampin Mist) and less sticky. Hope this helps. M

  2. Mary, I noticed that you are using the Memento Tuxedo Black on so many of your designs lately…is this your new preferred black? I was just wondering if it’s a more crisp black than basic black or if there are best conditions to use both.

    Thank you for sharing your lovely creations!

  3. I had to come to your blog and say Wow, I love it. The writing on the image and the simplicity of the card makes it look like you thought about your project. I love the inside liner. Fun and creative idea. What I mean is that it shows you care.

    Have a stampin’pretty day Mary and thank you for sharing.

    Kindly, Peggyxo

  4. The bandit (for anyone who is wondering) is something we do on our private Facebook group (for my Stampin Pretty Pals, exclusively). We submit our works of art and the bandit swoops one at random and awards a prize!

  5. Oh Mary, thanks so much! I’m actually working on some cards now. I’ll post later and maybe the “Secret Bandit” will get me. Ha. Ha. 🙂

  6. Can sweet be said too many times today? I don’t thonk so as this card has “sweet” all wrapped up! Thanks for the inspiration and I may try it with hearts as you suggested.

  7. Ooo’ MsMary how sweet that card , I love it, BEAUITIFUL !!
    Hugs frenchie
    Love those little flowers ,

  8. Mary, what a great card. I love. I am so glad i have the itty bitty punch pack. I will have to put this set on my future list. I love this simple card. It is also good to know we can use our markers on the pfotopolymer stamps. Have a great day Mary. Happy Stamping.

  9. I love the colors of this. It makes such a sweet looking card. Thanks for sharing this.

  10. Just to be sure, Nancy, I just tested my Stampin Write Markers on Stampin Up! photopolymer stamps and it worked perfectly for painting the color directly to the stamp. So, just like red rubber stamps, you can isolate just part of a stamp or use multiple colors using markers as I did on todays card with photopolymer!

  11. OH SO SWEET…..and how nice of you for helping me decide this set NEEDS to go on my July order. This card will end up on my CASE pile! Thanks for sharing.

  12. Very Nice Card, Mary! Love the punched out centers. Just a thought/question came to me . . . when you said you used markers on your red rubber stamp, can we use this technique on photopolymers too? Have a great day. 🙂
