Stampin’ Up! Kind & Sincere for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans yet for the weekend? I was supposed to have off the entire weekend to do my baking, but unfortunately, they were shorthanded at the dog bakery and me being a softy said I could help. So, plans have changed a bit, I’ll be mixing my cookies today and baking what I could on Sunday. The rest will have to get baked off during the week. I thought about not baking anything this year, but that’s not going over well at all. I’ve been doing this since I was a little girl with my mom and as she got older, I just took over. I can’t break a tradition.

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 is my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 1

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Kind & Sincere Cling Stamp Set (available starting January 5, 2023) along with the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Cling Stamp Set and Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 2

I started by adhering a panel of Abigail Rose DSP to a Smoky Slate card back. I scored & folded a Pool Party card base as listed below. Adhered the card base to the center of the card back. Fussy cut one of the large flower images from the Abigail Rose DSP using Paper Snips. Color the image using Highland Heatherm Petal Pink, Pool Party, Shaded Spruce and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 3

I embossed a Smoky Slate card front using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Pool Party mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Adhere the layered panel to the 1 1/2″ left side only of the card base. Adhere the large fussy cut floral image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 4

Adhere a panel of Abigail Rose DSP to the 1 1/2″ right side of the card base. On a panel of Basic White cardstock stamp the sentiment from the Kind & Sincere stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink. Cut the sentiment out using the 2nd largest narrow rectangle die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies. Adhere the sentiment over the floral image using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 5

On the thin panel of Basic White cardstock, stamp the sentiment from Kind & Sincere stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink. Cut the sentiment out using the largest narrow banner die from the Stylish Shapes Dies. Adhere the banner sentiment to the right panel using Glue Dots. Add a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 6

Adhere the 2 panels of Abigail Rose DSP to the inside of the card base. Stamp the small flower image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the bottom of the Basic White panel. Color the image using the Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. Adhered the Basic White panel to a Smoky Slate mat then to the inside of the Pool Party card base.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 7

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the smaller rose image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image using my Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Abigail Rose DSP to the envelope flap which I had colored the same as the card front image.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 8

Use this host code when placing an order with me. When you order $50 or greater you will receive a free gift from me! If your order is over $150, please do not use this code, but you’ll still get the free gift. The free gift is your choice of any 1 item valued up to $10.00 from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog or the July – December 2022 Mini Catalog!  Unfortunately packs of cardstock are no longer an option for a free gift. Shipping has become too expensive to ship and it’s costing me as much to ship as the cardstock costs. For any orders $50 or more I will also send you my monthly class tutorials.  Click HERE or go to my Customer Rewards for more details and to see what this month’s tutorials are.

Please remember to use my current Host Code and make sure that you can see my name on the final checkout page listed as your Demonstrator when you order so that you know that you’re ordering with me and you’ll get my rewards! 

Happy Stamping, Karen


In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product (excluding cardstock) up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.
