Stampin’ Up! Waves of Inspiration Fun Fold Friday Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends, welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend? I’m off tomorrow, but I have to work on Sunday.

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! Waves of The Ocean Collection for my card today.

I started by placing a panel of the Waves of the Ocean Designer Series Paper on the front of a Petal Pink card base and using my Hippo & Friends Dies I cut through the 2 panels using the 3rd largest die. I adhered the DSP to a Coastal Cabana Blue Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal and then lining up the openings I adhered the layered panel to the front of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut the Waves Dies from a panel of Coastal Cabana Blue Foil and adhered it to a panel of the Waves of The Ocean DSP using an Adhesive Sheet. I cut the DSP around the wave using my Paper Snips, then adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and cut off the excess. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the pelican image from the Stampin’ Up! Waves of Inspiration Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the image out using my Waves Dies along with cutting out the clouds and detailed cloud dies. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. From a small panel of Smoky Slate cardstock, I cut a few of the birds using my Waves Dies.

I adhered the pelican image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the cloud images to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals overlapping the opening a little. I adhered the birds to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I scored and folded the smaller card base. Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the wave image from the Waves of Inspiration stamp set on the front of the small card base in Coastal Cabana Ink. I adhered the other detailed wave I cut from the Coastal Cabana Blue Foil paper using an Adhesive Sheet. I adhered the small card to the inside of the Petal Pink card base opening the opposite way. I closed the cards and stamped the sentiment from the Waves of Inspiration stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink through the opening on the front of the card. I stamped a few of the bird image from the Waves of Inspiration stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the small card front. I added a cloud that I had die cut from a panel of Basic White cardstock using my Waves Dies, to the top of the panel. I added a few of the Rhinestone Waves Basic Jewels to the large and small card fronts.

On the inside of the small card base I stamped the birds and sentiment from the Waves of Inspiration in Smoky Salte Ink. I added a cloud that I had die cut from a panel of Basic White cardstock using my Waves Dies, on the top of the panel. I stamped the pelican image from the Waves of Inspiration stamp set on the opposite side in Tuxedo Black Ink and very lightly colored it, so the ink didn’t bleed through, using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the wave image from the Waves of Inspiration stamp set in Coastal Cabana Ink.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the pelican image from the Waves of Inspiration stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it the same as I did for the card. I stamped a couple of the birds in Smoky Slate Ink by the pelican. I adhered a panel of Waves of The Ocean 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. I hope you will CASE this card and please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under my post. I’d love to see your take on the card.

Paper Pumpkin Price Increases Beginning March 1

On March 1, 2022, Paper Pumpkin kits will see a slight increase in price for both month-to-month orders and prepaid subscriptions. Despite Covid’s continued strain on the global economy, Stampin’ Up! has been working diligently to maintain the lowest possible price for our Paper Pumpkin kits–including absorbing costs to prevent price increases. However, as we continue to see greater cost increases to raw materials, shipping, and overhead, we have made the decision to increase pricing in order to maintain the high quality and value of the monthly kit.

Here are the details:

You will begin to see the price change on paper pumpkin.com

beginning February 11, with the start of the March subscription period.

Shipping added based on order total at time of check out. 

Prepaid codes–both redeemed and unredeemed–purchased before the 1 March price change will maintain their full value. No additional payment will be required. 

Prices for past kits and refills released before March 1, 2022 will remain unchanged.

Let me know if you have any questions about the price changes.  ***If you purchase Prepaid Paper Pumpkin Kits during February, you’ll save a few $$ and possibly earn some free Sale-a-bration items too!
