Stampin’ Up! Cup of Tea Fun Fold 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 know I sure am. It’s been one of those weeks for me. My poor fur baby spent Monday at the ER, she was having seizures all day. She’s doing better, but it’s a long way off before she’s back to herself. She’s able to walk a little better now, but she’s still very wobbly, she’s walking like she’s drunk. On top of that on Monday, a very sentimental tree of mine had to come down. My dad planted a Bradford Pear tree in my front yard about 28-29 years ago, which was when we move into our house. The tree split down the middle. One bad storm, and the tree was coming down right onto my house. Unfortunately, we had to have it cut down and now my house is so bright inside. That tree was taller than my house and provided my entire front yard with shade. I’m ready for this week to end.

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. I actually have 2 versions of the card to show you. Here are my cards for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cup of Tea Bundle along with the Tea Boutique 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my cards today.

I started by embossing a Fresh Freesia panel using the Twigs & Sprigs Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of Tea Boutique DSP to the top of the panel. I scored a panel of Tea Boutique DSP at 2″, 2 1/4″, 3″, 3 1/4″, 4″, 4 1/4″, 5″ & 5 1/4″. Fold the 1/4″ score lines into Mountain Folds and the others into Valley Folds.

Here is the template for the half drapery fold panel.

I adhered the drapery folded panel to the bottom of the embossed panel making sure to have the same edge as the top panel. I used a strip of Tear & Tape along the top edge of the drapery fold. This holds all the folds in place. I wrapped a piece of the Orchid Oasis 1/8″ Metallic Woven Ribbon around the layered panel securing it on the back with Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the card front to an Orchid Oasis card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the Teacup Dies, I cut the solid cup from a panel of Fresh Freesia cardstock. I cut the detailed teacup from a panel of 2022-2024 In-Color Glimmer Paper. I cut the solid lemon from a panel of So Saffron cardstock. I cut the detailed lemon from a panel of Basic White cardstock that I colored with my So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Marker. On the panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the tea tag outline image from the Stampin’ Up! cup of Tea Photopolymer Stamp Set in Fresh Freesia Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink inside the tag. I cut the tag using the Teacup Dies. I adhered the detailed teacup to the solid teacup die and the detailed lemon to the solid lemon die. I adhered a piece of White Bakers Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack to the back of the teacup and the tea tag using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the teacup, tag and lemon to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2022-2024 In-Color Matte Decorative Dots to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment form the Cup of Tea stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the teacup image from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image using my Fresh Freesia and Orchid Oasis Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat and then to the inside of the Orchid Oasis card base. If you watched my video, I had lost my lemon and had to make another one. I found my lemon and decided to add it to the inside of the card next to the teacup.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the teacup image from the Cup of Tea stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it using my Fresh Freesia and Orchid Oasis Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered a panel of Tea Boutique DSP to the envelope flap.

  1. Karen, I love your drapery folds. I haven’t done one in quite awhile. This DSP lends itself well for this fold. Sorry you had such a rough week emotionally with your fur baby and tree.
