Stampin’ Up! Field Of Flowers Sneak Peek for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Hope you had a productive one.  Is anyone doing anything this weekend?  A friend of mine was going to a nursery and I asked her to pick up a flat of flowers for me.  I’m hoping to get them planted around my gardens and in some of my flower pots.

For today’s card I have a fun fold that uses a whole sheet of cardstock along with giving you a sneak peek of a new bundle coming in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Paper Players Color Challenge #490.  Here are their colors.

My design is from the CAS Colours & Sketch Challenge #370.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with Just Add Ink Challenge #505. Their theme is ‘Thinking of You!’

I started with an 8 1/2″ X 11″ panel of Pool Party cardstock.  I scored it in half at 5 1/2″.  I turned the panel the long way and scored it at 2 1/8″ & 6 3/8″.  It should look like the photo below.

I cut the top right and left side panels off at the score lines, it will look like the photos below.  After cutting the side panels off, I cut another 1/16″ off the gate folds so that the top would fold down flat.  The bottom portion will be a gate fold card and the top portion will fold down.

The bottom portion will be a gate fold card and the top portion will fold down.

I adhered a panel of Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Pool Party mat using Snail.  On a Whisper White strip I stamped the foliage image from the Stampin’ Up! Field of Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink.  I adhered the panel to a Pool Party mat using Snail.  On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tiny flower image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink a couple times.  I cut the images out using the Confetti Flowers Border Punch.  I also cut some of the flowers out of a scrap of Melon Mambo cardstock.  I randomly adhered the flowers to the stems using tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On another small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the larger stem image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink over the sentiment.  I stamped the single flower image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink on the stems.  I stamped the dragonfly image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink  below the sentiment and a couple times on the DSP.  I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a scalloped circle out of Pool Party cardstock using the Layering Circles Dies that was a size larger than the stitched circle.  I adhered the stitched circle to the scalloped circle using Snail and then on top of the artwork strip using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Melon Mambo Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the artwork.

I adhered 2 panels of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper to the 2 inside fold panels.  To keep with the colors, I colored the leaves and flowers on the DSP using my Granny Apple Green and Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Markers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stem image from the Field of Flowers stamp set on the side and bottom of the panel in Granny Apple Green Ink.  I stamped the double flower image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink on top of the stems.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pool Party mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stem image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the flower images from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink on top of the stems.  I stamped the dragonfly image from the Field of Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink near the flowers.  I adhered a panel of the Parisian Blossoms Specialty 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.  The stamp set/bundle I used will be available for purchase June 3rd.  The DSP and Noble Peacock Rhinestones I used will be retiring June 2nd or while supplies last.  Happy Stamping.
