Stampin’ Up Beauty and Joy for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  Is everyone ready for the weekend?  Are you making any fun plans?  I’m going to be heading to the shore for the day today.  I’m really looking forward to going and just relaxing for a few hours.  I’m hoping that the water won’t be as rough as it was last time I was there.

I have a sneak peek for you today along with a Fun Fold.  I received my Pre–Order on Tuesday.  I heard the UPS truck coming down my street and I just knew it was for me.  I ran to the door to meet him and got my package and just tore into it.  I was so excited to see my new items and the new Holiday Catalog.  If you’re on my mailing list you will be receiving one soon. This fun fold is another new one that I’ve never done before.  I really had a lot of fun making this one.  This actually might be my new favorite fun fold.  Here’s my card.

Aren’t these colors gorgeous together.  I was inspired by the Global Design Project #201.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #233.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of the new Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to the side card front panel using Snail.

I stamped the wicker pot image from the new Stampin’ Up Beauty & Joy Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the tree trunk image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the leaves image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink above the tree trunk.  I stamped the tiny flowers from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on top of the leaves.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then to the side panel of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center.  I stamped the tiny flowers from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink in the corners of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted sentiment to the inside card front right behind the card front artwork using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I added a few Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the bottom of the inside card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in the center of the inside of the Whisper White card base in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I stamped the tiny flowers from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink in the corners.  I adhered the Whisper White card base inside the Merry Merlot card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tree trunk from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the leaves from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink above the tree trunk on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Come To Gather DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Subscribe for the August kit from July 11–August 10


What’s the old saying? Variety is the spice of life? At Paper Pumpkin, we like to mix things up and keep our customer’s crafting experience fresh and fun. We plan each kit carefully, allowing them to check as many creative boxes as possible while keeping our projects simple—so they can explore the world of paper crafting with confidence. With this in mind, we are bringing an elegant fall gift packaging kit to Paper Pumpkin fans this August.
Now, it’s no secret that our subscribers love cardmaking. So when we offer treat or gift packaging, you generally like to make a few card alternates with the kit. That’s why THIS month we decided to bring you the best of both worlds with the Gift of Fall Add-On Bundle. This coordinating product will allow you to turn your Gift of Fall gift packaging into cards in an easy and inexpensive way.

  • The August kit includes 6 gift bags and 12 gift tags. To receive this kit you must subscribe by August 10.
  • The Gift of Fall Add-On Bundle is a separate purchase for those who would like to convert their August Paper Pumpkin kit into cards.
  • The Gift of Fall Add-On Bundle card designs offer a great sneak of the designs and elements to come in the August kit.
  • Once you have completed the August kit, you will have extra kit components so you can easily combine them with the add-on without having to purchase additional kits.
  • Just as you would with any other Stampin’ Up! product, you will need to purchase the add-on bundle via OEX or the online store. You will not be able to add it to a Paper Pumpkin subscription purchase.
  • The price for the add-on bundle is $10.00 usd/$13.00 cad and is available for Paper Pumpkin subscribers only. This add-on is available beginning August 1, while supplies last!
