Stampin’ Up! Hello Ladybug Bumblebee, Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends HAPPY APRIL!!! Welcome to my fun fold Friday. I can’t believe that it’s April, WOW!!! My Bradford Pear Tree has buds on it and so does my Dogwood Tree. My Hydrangeas are starting to sprout green and Tulips are popping up everywhere. Looks like spring is in the air, now if the temperatures would just cooperate. Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be signed in on my OnTour watching new products get used and learning some new things. I got my preorder placed this morning before I had to leave for work, so once it come in I’ll do an unveiling video. My credit card has gone in hiding for a bit, I guess it was a little bit of a shock all at once for it.

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! Hello Ladybug Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by scoring and folding a Bumblebee card base at 2 1/8″ & 4 1/4″ to make a Z-Fold card. I adhered 2 panels of Pansy Petals DSP to 2 Basic Black mats. I adhered 1 of the layered panels on the front of the card base.

I cut 2 of the flower images from a panel of Pansy Petals DSP and 6 of the leaf images from another panel of Pansy Petals DSP using my Pansy Dies. I adhered the leaves to the back of the die cut flower using Glue Dots. I adhered 2 of the 1 7/8″ Basic Black squares to the card front as diamonds lining up the corners with the edge of the matted DSP. I adhered the die cut pansies to the diamonds using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Ladybug Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a strip of Basic White cardstock. I cut the strip using my Banner Pick A Punch and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered 2 of the Adhesive-Backed Hexagons to the sentiment and 2 to the flower centers.

I cut a small panel of Basic Black cardstock using the Ladybug Builder Punch. I adhered 3 strips of Bumblebee cardstock evenly on the punched ladybug giving it stripes for the bumblebee. I punched a piece of Vellum paper using the Ladybug Builder Punch for the wings. I embossed the Vellum paper using my Hive 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the wings to the bumblebee body using a Stampin’ Dimensional and added an Adhesive-Backed Hexagon in the center of the wings. For the mechanism the bumblebee is on, I took a 2 7/8″ square of Basic Black cardstock scored and folded it from corner to corner one way. I cut a 2 3/4″ square of Pansy Petals in half corner to corner and adhered it to one side of the square. After the inside was finished, I matched up the square with the inner liner, having the DSP side facing out. I added Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the Basic Black side of the triangle and adhered the card base to it so that it would line up perfectly. I adhered the bumblebee to the DSP side using Stampin’ Dimensionals. (If I didn’t explain this part clearly it might be better off watching the video).

I adhered the 2nd DSP layered panel to the inside left of the card base. I cut 2 – 2″ Basic Black squares to make triangles. I cut 2 – 1 3/4″ Pansy Petal DSP squares to make triangles. I adhered the DSP to the Basic Black mats and then to the 4 corners of the inside of the card base. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Hello Ladybug stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the flower image from the Hello Ladybug stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat and adhered it to the inside of the Bumblebee card base. I added a couple Bumblebee Trinkets to the 2 outside corners.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Pansy Petals DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! New Shipping Fees Beginning April 1

I want to let you know about a change to Stampin’ Up!’s shipping and handling pricing.  Starting April 1, the minimum shipping charge will increase by $1.00, from $6.95 to $7.95—or by one percentage point, from 10% to 11% of the total order amount—whichever is greater.

If you ever use the expedited shipping options, those fees are going up a bit too.  Here are the new fees for expedited shipping:

  • Next Day Upgrade: $38.00 USD ($3.00 USD increase from the previous rate)
  • 2nd Day Upgrade: $23.00 USD ($3.00 USD increase from the previous rate)
  • 3 Day Shipping Upgrade: $15.00 USD ($5.00 USD increase from the previous rate)
  • The expedited shipping option rates above are calculated in addition to the standard shipping rate (e.g., the next day shipping option would cost $7.95 USD or 11%—whichever is greater—plus $38.00 USD)

I want to make sure you’re aware of this change, as it impacts both you and me.  Stampin’ Up! has worked to keep the increase as minimal as possible so they can continue bringing you the unique, high-quality, and coordinated paper crafting products that you love.
