Sophisticated Serif Stationary (say that 3 times fast : )

So my boss has a birthday this month.  Her first name is Marlene, her last name starts with an O so naturally she is often called MO for short.  This year for her birthday I thought I would make her some personalized stationary note cards using the Sophisticated Serifs stamp set.  She is really good about sending handwritten notes so I knew she would get good use out of them.  She is the first person in the office to ask me to make a card for our management team to give for any type of reason so I was excited about making something just for her.  Stampin UP Sophisticate Serifs AverysOwlery.comI used 1/4 piece of Berumda Bay card stock to create the base then attached note card size piece on the front leaving them blank inside for her message.  Stampin UP Sophisticate Serifs AverysOwlery.comNo set of stationary is complete without lined envelopes and a box to put them in. Sorry, no picture of those but I used my envelope liner framelit to create the perfect sized liners using various pieces of the the Back to Black Designer series paper.  I used a 9×9 piece of Black Card Stock to create the box to hold them using my envelop punch board.  Score opposite sides at 3 3/4 and 4 3/4 then use the score lines to do the remain two sides.  Snip the flaps and fold.  I wanted to create a unique closure for my envelop box so I took a cue from a previous Paper Pumpkin and created a circle with bakers twine closure. Stampin UP Envelope Punch Board AverysOwlery.comStampin UP Envelope Punch Board

Thanks for visiting my Site. My name is Lynn Kolcun and I'm a Stampin Up Demonstrator. I love being creative with paper and ink, learning new techniques and sharing my craft with you.


  1. love your cards……I found the stamps that had extra photpolymer in them such as B, P, and even the M’s were not coming out clean.. I am not looking forward to cutting pieces out of the others. Do you have any tips on using these stamps???

    • Hi Patrica. I didn’t have any trouble with my stamping so long as my Memento black ink was good and juicy and I used a foam mat underneath the card stock. If you are having trouble with your set, contact your demonstrator to see about getting a replacement set. You shouldn’t have to cut out anything from the letters to make them stamp properly.

  2. Awesome project!! Thanks for including directions. Don’t normally comment but follow daily. Keep the inspiration coming.

  3. Loved this project! But I have misunderstood the box. I thought I had it right but, it is not right…Could you guide me with a little more did mean to punch and score? Mine has a gap and no gusset. Also how many cards and envelopes did you put in the box? So glad to have found you on the Blog Hop.
    Thank you very much,
    Sandra Bridges
