Batter Up!

May 27, 2021

Baseball Themed Card

Step up to the plate, take a swing, and knock it out of the park! With the Batter Up! Paper Pumpkin Kit, it’s your turn to go to bat for all the people who’ve gone to bat for you.

This month’s timeless kit with a “throwback” baseball theme card contains enough grand slam supplies to create nine cards—and coordinating envelopes—featuring classic colors, pinwheel and pinstripe patterns, and vintage-washed paper pieces. There’s no “batter” way to root, root, root for your home team and honor the all-stars in your life!

A beloved baseball-themed card kit would be incomplete without the sport’s signature, sticky snack—the official bubble gum of the MLB. A favorite in the field, the Batter Up! Paper Pumpkin Kit contains the classic chewy staple; chew while you craft, slide a piece into a card, or save it for later!

You’re the Greatest

Let a loved one know they’re the greatest of all time with this cute, colorful, and circular baseball themed card! First, cut and score a standard card base from Smoky Slate Cardstock. Then, cut a card front from Basic White Cardstock that’s slightly smaller than the Smoky Slate card base.

Using the Layering Circles Dies, place your selection of sizes onto the kit’s patterned envelopes and striped die-cut pieces. Then, run them through your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to cut a collection of mixed circles! Start adhering the circles onto the Basic White card front in a pattern with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Once attached, use your Paper Trimmer to trim any circles left hanging over the edges. Adhere the card front to the card base, then set aside.

Cut one of the baseball themed card kit’s home plate die-cut pieces down to a rectangle. Add Real Red ink to the kit’s “you’re the greatest of all time” stamp, then stamp onto the rectangle. Adhere the rectangle to one of the kit’s brown-patterned card bases—leaving a border—and cut. Then, from the same card base, cut a smaller rectangle. Adhere both pieces to the card front, then send it off for a seventh-inning smile!

Supplies: Batter Up! Photopolymer Stamp Set (included); Basic White and Smoky Slate Cardstock; brown-patterned card base (included), home plate die-cut (included), patterned envelope (included), red and yellow striped die-cut (included); Real Red Classic Stampin’ Pad; Foam Adhesive Sheets; dimensionals (included); Layering Circles Dies

An All-Star Mom

Moms are the real MVPs. Celebrate your all-star mom with this star-studded baseball themed card! First, cut and score a 3" x 3" card base from Basic Gray Cardstock. Then, cut a slightly smaller card front from the Balmy Blue striped sheet included in the You’re a Peach Designer Series Paper pack. Before adhering to the card base, cut the Balmy Blue striped sheet into squares of various sizes to create a blocked background.

Next, place a solid star from the Stitched Stars Dies onto Basic White Cardstock, then run through your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. After adhering a piece of black-and-white trim from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack to the center of the card, use the kit’s dimensionals to secure the star on top. Set aside.

Add Balmy Blue ink to the kit’s “all star” stamp, then stamp onto Basic White Cardstock. Fussy cut, then set aside. On Petal Pink Cardstock, stamp the kit’s hat stamp in Petal Pink ink! With a VersaMark Pad, stamp the kit’s “mom” stamp onto the hat. Sprinkle with silver emboss powder from the Metallics collection of Stampin’ Emboss Powders, set with heat, then fussy cut the hat. Adhere the “all star” sentiment and the hat to the card front, then finish off with Metallic Pearls. Now, that’s a home run!

Supplies: Batter Up! Photopolymer Stamp Set (included); Basic Gray, Basic White, and Petal Pink Cardstock; You’re a Peach Designer Series Paper; Balmy Blue and Petal Pink Classic Stampin’ Pads; VersaMark Pad; Stampin’ Emboss Powders (Metallics); Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack; Metallic Pearls; adhesive dots (included), dimensionals (included); Stitched Stars Dies

In a League of Their Own

Send a little love to someone in a league of their own! This baseball themed card was created almost exclusively with the Batter Up! Paper Pumpkin Kit. All you need is a Pacific Point Classic Stampin’ Pad!

Use adhesive dots to adhere a die-cut baseball to the card front, slightly off-center. Before adhering a red die-cut label on top of the die-cut baseball, cut a banner edge. Use a Pacific Point Classic Stampin’ Pad to ink up the “brother” (or “mom”, “friend”, or anyone else) stamp, then stamp onto a white die-cut sentiment label. Use dimensionals to attach, slide on the “you’re in a league of your own” paper piece, and finish off with red and yellow enamel stickers!

Supplies: Batter Up! Paper Pumpkin Kit; Pacific Point Classic Stampin’ Pad
