Stampin’ Up! Queen Bee for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Any plans for the weekend yet? I have off of work tomorrow, but I’ll be working all day on Sunday. Tomorrow would have been a very special day if my dad were still here. It’s his 100th birthday. I’m sure he’ll be enjoying it up in heaven with my mom and all his siblings and family members.

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! Queen Bee Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Queen Bee Bundle, Sale-a-bration Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper and the Hive 3D Embossing Folder.

Stampin' Up! Queen Bee Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by scoring and folding the large and small card bases as listed below. I randomly stamped a panel of Crushed Curry cardstock using the newsprint stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Queen Bee Cling Stamp Set in Crushed Curry Ink. I embossed a panel of Crushed Curry using the Hive 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to the back of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the small card base to the center back of the large card base and the front of the large card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of Dainty Flowers DSP to the front of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a small panel of the Dainty Flowers DSP to the front of the small card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large bee image from the Queen Bee stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my Black Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the bee out using my Queen Bee Dies. I adhered the bee using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

From a scrap of Dainty Flowers DSP, I cut the tiny heart die from the Queen Bee Dies and adhered it to the large bee. I added a few Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside, I adhered a panel of Dainty Flowers DSP to the center of the large card base. I adhered a panel of the Dainty Flowers DSP to the center panel of the small card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut 3 of the small leaf dies from the Queen Bee Dies from a panel of Old Olive cardstock. I cut the larger flower die from the Queen Bee Dies from a scrap of Rich Razzleberry cardstock. I adhered the leaves to the center of the small card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flower using a Glue Dot. I stamped the small bee image from the Queen Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the center panel. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiments from the Queen Bee stamp set in Stary Sky Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to the back section of the small card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut 5 of the beehives dies from the Queen Bee Dies from a panel of Basic Black cardstock. I adhered the hives randomly to the back of the card base and the Basic White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On the panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the small bee image from the Queen Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the bees out using the Queen Bee Dies. I adhered the bees to the hives using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I brushed the wings of all the small bees and the flower center using my Clear Wink of Stella to give it a little shimmer.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large bee image from the Queen Bee stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the heart on the bee using my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered a panel of Dainty Flowers DSP to the envelope flap.

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.
