Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s week? We got another 8″ of snow yesterday topped with a little ice. I’m really ready for spring and to start planting my flowers. Are you ready for the weekend? I’m actually only working on Sunday this weekend. I was shocked when I looked at my calendar, but it was a very pleasant surprise.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you very much. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. I used the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today. I really didn’t think I was going to like this set when it came out last year, but I have gotten so much use of it between birthday cards and Mother’s Day cards. I’m really loving this set. Here’s my card that I made.

My colors for today’s card were from Inspire. Create. Challenge # 084.

I started with a panel of True Love Designer Series Paper cutting the panel only to the flowers then fussy cutting them using my Paper Snips. I colored just the center flowers in on the DSP using my Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I scored a Rococo Rose card base at 2 3/4″ & 5 1/2″, scoring and folding on both folds inward. I adhered a panel of Love You Always Specialty Designer Series Paper to the bottom front section of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the cut and colored panel of True Love DSP to the top of the DSP using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the sentiment from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Rococo Rose ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and cut it out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and cut it out using the 3rd smallest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I stamped the flower image on the bottom of the die cut panel in Rococo Rose Ink. I stamped the rose fill image in Rococo Rose Ink over the outlined image stamping off twice. I adhered a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock to the inside of the Rococo Rose card base using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the flower image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink in the 4 corners of the panel. I adhered the scalloped sentiment to the Sahara Sand panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I made 2 small bows using the Blushing Bride 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon. I adhered 1 to the inside sentiment using a Glue Dot. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I first adhered the 2nd Blushing Bride bow to the top of the front of the card base using a Glue Dot. I adhered a panel of Love You Always Specialty DSP to the envelope flap. I stamped the outline flower image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set on the envelope front in Rococo Rose.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.
