Stampin’ Up! Adorable Owls for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my last Fun Fold Friday for 2022. Another year gone (and I won’t miss this one), and a new one starting on Sunday. Has anyone made plans yet for New Year’s Eve? I’m pretty sure we’ll be spending it at home. I’m not sure if we’re having company or not yet.

Today’s card is one that I haven’t done in a while, and I really like doing. Sorry I missed doing my live on Wednesday again. I’m usually out of work by noon on Wednesday’s and when 2pm came around and I was still there, I just knew there was no way I was going to be able to go live. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Adorable Owls Sale-a-bration Cling Stamp Set and the Dandy Design Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper for my card today. Both items will be available starting January 5, FREE, with qualifying order.

I started by cutting my card base by putting the short edge of the cardstock on the bottom of the Paper Trimmer lined up at the 3″ mark on my Paper Trimmer. I placed the blade at the 3″ mark and cut to 3/4″. I turned the cardstock in the Paper Trimmer, so the long edge was on the bottom lined up at the 3″ mark. I cut from the cut line (which is at 2 1/2″) up to the 5″ mark. I carefully flipped the cut panel around and folded it down.

I cut a panel of Coastal Cabana cardstock by lining up the long-left side of the paper at the 3/4″ mark on my Paper Trimmer. I cut down 3″. I turned the cardstock so the long edge was on the bottom of the Paper Trimmer lined up at the 3″ mark and I cut down to cut the panel off. I cheated for the Dandy Design DSP since no one can see it. I lined up the DSP on the Coastal Cabana mat and using my pencil I drew a line where it needed to be cut and cut the panel off. I adhered the Dandy Design DSP to the Coastal Cabana mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure there was equal mat around the 3 sides. I adhered the layered panel to the card front, under the cut panel, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I used a couple Stampin’ Dimensionals to hold the flipped panel in place.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the flying owl image from the Adorable Owls stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the Adorable Owls stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the corner of the panel. I adhered the artwork to a Coastal Cabana mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few of the new Opaque Adhesive-Backed Gems, which will be available January 5, to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Adorable Owl stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I blocked off the bottom of the sentiment, so I just got the top portion using washi tape. I adhered a strip of the Dandy Design DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Coastal Cabana mat then to the inside of the Pool Party card base.

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the owl image from the Adorable Owls stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Dancy Design DSP to the envelope flap.

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.

*********************************************************************************************************

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 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.
