Stampin’ Up! Sweet Strawberry for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I hope that anyone that’s a Mother can find some special time for yourself, maybe do some stamping. I’ll be at work all day tomorrow and most likely on Sunday too.

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. 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. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Strawberry Bundle for my fun fold card today. Unfortunately the Strawberry Builder Punch is not orderable right now, but hopefully it’ll be back by the end of the month. I also used the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper that is only available to Hosts or if you place an order of $150 or more and use your Stampin’ Rewards to purchase it. This is such an awesome pack of DSP with 48 sheets of colored designs on one side and black & white prints on the other. I’d be happy to help you earn this beautiful pack of DSP. Drop me an email at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com if you are interested in learning how.

I started with the card front. I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle Dies. I stamped the stem & leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Strawberry Photopolymer Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green Ink 3 times on the panel. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the outline strawberry image from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set 3 times in Poppy Parade Ink. I stamped the strawberry fill image over the outline image in Poppy Parade Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the outline strawberry top image in Granny Apple Green Ink 3 times on the panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the strawberry top fill image on top of the outlined image in Granny Apple Green Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the smallest flower image from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set 3 times on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Daffodil Delight Ink. I punched all the images out using my Strawberry Builder Punch.

I adhered the strawberry tops to the strawberries using Glue Dots. I adhered the bottom strawberry to the Basic White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the other 2 strawberries using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the flowers to the panel using Glue Dots. I adhered the artwork to a Poppy Parade mat using Stampin’ Seal. On a strip of Poppy Parade cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using the smallest narrow Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a panel of the Pattern Party Host DSP to a Basic White card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

For the card base I scored a panel of Thick Basic White cardstock at 1 3/8″ & 2 3/4″. I turned the cardstock around and scored the other end at 1 3/8″ & 2 3/4″ to make small ‘Z’ folds on either side of the card base. I adhered a panel of the Pattern Party DSP to a Poppy Parade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the right edge of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to the left edge of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the outline strawberry image from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink twice on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the strawberry fill image over the outline image in Poppy Parade Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the stem and leaves image from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the side of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Poppy Parade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped the stem and leaf image from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the front of a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a panel of the Pattern Party DSP to the envelope flap.
