Stampin’ Up! Birds of a Feather Thanksgiving for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend?  I hope you are making some fun plans.  I love this time of year when the air is a little cooler and the leaves are starting to change.  We’re having nice cool nights and very pleasant days right now.

For today I have a quick fun fold for you.  Actually the only part that has the fold is the Designer Series Paper.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by the Fab Friday Challenge #172.  Here are their colors. Love these gorgeous fall colors.

I started out by folding my Come To Gather Designer Series Paper.  On the 5 3/8″ side I cut up 2″ at the 2 11/16″ mark.  I scored from each of the corners on an angle to the cut line and folded on the scored lines.

On the right center edge of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the turkey image from the Stampin’ Up! Birds of a Feather Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the turkey image in using my Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the folded DSP to the Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front to a Cajun Craze  card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched Nested Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a small bow that I made from the Mint Macaron Nature’s Twine using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels that I colored using my Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blend Marker.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment.  I stamped the turkey image from the Birds of a Feather stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the Whisper White panel.  I colored the turkey in the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Cajun Craze card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the turkey image from the Birds of a Feather stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the turkey in the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a panel of the Come To Gather DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. I hope you all have a fun filled weekend.  See you Monday. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Free Skate Christmas Card and Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re almost through another week and before you know it the weekend will be here.

For today I have a couple projects to share with you that we made at our team meeting on Sunday.  Our team leader, Amy, comes up with the cutest ideas.  Both projects were 100% her designs.  First we made a Christmas card using the Stampin’ Up! Free Skate Bundle.  After making this card I am definitely going to purchase this set for myself.  It’s so much nicer in person than it is in the catalog.  Here’s the card we made.

I started by embossing a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Free Skate Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a Poppy Parade panel.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using the Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using the stitched circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies and the bow using the Detailed Skates Dies from the panel of Po9ppy Parade cardstock.  I cut the strip of holly leaves out of Mossy Meadow cardstock using the Detailed Skates Dies.  I cut 2 of the solid ice skates out and 2 of the detailed ice skates out using the Detailed Skates Dies from the Whisper White panel.  I cut 2 of the ice skate blades out of the Silver Foil Sheet using the Detailed Skates Dies.  I stamped the holly and berry image from the Free Skate stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampn’ Blends Markers.  I cut the holly image out using the Detailed Skates Dies.

To assemble everything, I adhered the detailed skate to the solid skate using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the  blades to the bottom of the skates using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the skates to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Holly to the skate using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the bow above the skates on the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the strip of Holy leaves to the left of the skates using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the sentiment circle above the holly using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Red Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Free Skate stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the holly and berry image from the Free Skate stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink by the sentiment and colored it in using my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope by stamping the Holly and Berry image from the Free Skate stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and flap.  I colored them in using my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.

The other project we made at our team meeting was this adorable Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box.

Everyone got to choose the Designer Series Paper we wanted to use.  This adorable little box is cut from one sheet of the Night Before Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper Stack using the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies.  It was so simple to put together too.  Fold up the sides and it’s done.  These boxed would make great little favors that you can fill with candy or a little keepsake.

The only stamping on this was the tag and holly berry image.  We stamped the holly and berry image from the Free Skate stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  We colored it in using the Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut it out using the Detailed Skates Dies.  For the tag, we stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Tiny Keepsakes Cling Stamp Set in Poppy Parade Ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies.  We adhered the holly and berry to the tag using a Glue Dot and tied the tag to the box using some Mossy Meadow Linen Thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked the projects that I shared with you.  I had a lot of fun making both projects and what made it even more fun was stamping with Team Members and friends. It’s great being a part of this team.  If you’re interested in joining our team, please contact me for more information.  I’d love to have you join us.  Happy Stamping!

Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We made it half way through the week already.  Hope your week is going well.

For today’s card I used one of my favorite stamp sets to create a different sunflower.  I’m not quite sure what I was thinking when I decided to fussy cut the whole sunflower out, but I did it.   Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Just Add Ink Challenge #474.  Here are their colors.

My design was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #323.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut 2 of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies out, one in Rococo Rose cardstock and the other a size smaller in the Rococo Rose 2019-2021 In-Colors 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.  I adhered the DSP label to the Rococo Rose label using Snail and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small Whisper White panel I stamped the 1st part of the sunflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Photopolymer Stamp Set in Rococo Rose Ink.  I stamped the 2nd step of the sunflower from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink over the 1st image.  I stamped the sunflower center image from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the sunflower seed image from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I then fussy cut the sunflower out using my Paper Snips.  I adhered Stampin’ Dimensionals. to the back of the sunflower and added some of the Rose Metallic Thread to it so that it was sneaking out all around the sunflower.  I adhered the sunflower to the card front.  I stamped 3 of the leaf images from the Painted Harvest stamp set on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the detailed leaf image in Mossy Meadow Ink and the fill in leaf image in Mossy Meadow Ink stamping off once.  I punched the leaves out using my Leaf Punch.  I adhered the leaves under the sunflower using Glue Dots.

On a strip of Blackberry Bliss cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Little Lace Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I made a banner of the sentiment strip.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some Pearl Basic Jewels that I had colored in using my Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blend Marker.

On the inside I stamped the sunflower image from the Painted Harvest stamp set, the same as I did for the card front, on the bottom corner of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Painted Harvest stamp set in the center of the Whisper White panel in Blackberry Bliss Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the sunflower image from the Painted Harvest stamp set on the front of the envelope the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Ride With Me Masculine Birthday Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?

For today’s card I needed to make another masculine card using the Stampin’ Up! Ride With Me Photopolymer Stamp Set.  I was asked to make another masculine birthday card and the guy the card is for has always wanted a black truck.  Here’s my card.

My card was able to join in with the Fusion Card Challenge.  Here are their elements.

I started by adhering a panel of the Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to an Early Espresso mat using Snail.  I adhered a smaller panel of the Come To Gather DSP to another Early Espresso mat and adhered it to the top of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the truck image from the Ride With Me stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the pumpkin image from the Ride With Me stamp set in the back of the truck in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the images in using my Basic black, Gray Granite, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to an Early Espresso mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Ride With Me stamp set on the bottom of the card front in Early Espresso Ink.  I adhered the card front to a Cajun Craze card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the pumpkin image from the Ride With Me stamp set across the bottom of the Whisper White panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the truck and pumpkin images in from the Ride With Me stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored the images in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of the Come To Gather DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Wreaths

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun or exciting?  I worked all day on Saturday, but Sunday was our in person Team Meeting.  I had fun catching up with friends and crafting together.

For today’s card I made a pretty quick and easy one for you.  Here’s my card.

I played along with a couple challenges again.  I joined in with the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #338.  There’s is a sketch challenge and here’s their sketch.

Next I played along with The Color Throwdown Color Challenge #560.  Here are their colors.

I started by embossing a Soft Suede card front using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the wreath image from the Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Wreaths Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Soft Suede and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Seasonal Wreaths stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink in the center of the wreath.  I fussy cut the wreath out using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a strip of So Saffron and Old Olive card stock below the wreath using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a small bow made from the Linen Thread to the bottom of the wreath using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Seasonal Wreaths stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink to the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the detailed leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in 2 of the corners of the Whisper White panel.  I colored the leaves in using my Old Olive and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail and then adhered it to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the detailed leaf image from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and flap.  I colored the leaves in using my Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Harvest Hellos Fall Birthday Card for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday blog.  It’s Friday the 13th, there’s a full moon and it’s a harvest moon tonight.  I love watching the full moon rise at night, I’m hoping it will be a nice clear night to see it.  How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is here already, I hope you have some fun plans.  We’re at apple picking season here, that’s always a lot of fun.

For today’s card I made a Dutch Door Card using multiple fall related stamp sets.  Here’s my card.

I played along with the Paper Players Color Challenge #458.  Here are their colors.

I started by putting together my card base.  I scored the 4 1/8″ X 8 3/4″ panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock at 5 1/2″ and folded it.  I scored the 8 1/2″ X 2 1/4″ panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock at 2 1/8″ and 6 3/8″ and folded it on the score lines.  I adhered the larger card base to the smaller card base so that the 2 folded  sides would close over the bottom of the larger card base using Tear & Tape Adhesive.  I adhered a panel of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to the top portion of the card base using Snail.  I then adhered the 2 smaller panels of Come To Gather DSP to the outside  bottom portion of the card base to the edges so that they met in the middle and there was no border using Snail..

I cut out 3 Merry Merlot leaves using the Seasonal Layers Dies.  I cut out 2 more leaves, one in Cajun Craze and the other in Pretty Peacock using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I stamped the pumpkin image from the Stampn’ Up Harvest Hellos Cling Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I punched the pumpkin out using the Apple Builder Punch.  I also punched the stem out of a tiny scrap of Early Espresso cardstock and adhered it to the pumpkin using a Glue Dot.  I cut out the ‘Birthday Wishes’ sentiment from the Well Written Dies in Merry Merlot cardstock.

I adhered a Whisper White panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Snail.  I adhered the pumpkin to the Whisper White panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added the leaves under the pumpkin using Glue Dots.  I adhered the sentiment to the top of the Whisper White panel using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I adhered the artwork to the top portion of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered 2 of the Merry Merlot leaves to the bottom ‘Doors’ of the card base using Glue Dots.  You can also see in the picture above how I adhered the DSP to the ‘doors’ of the card, with only leaving a border on 3 sides.

On the inside I stamped the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel stamping off twice.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink on top of the leaf.  I stamped the 2 pumpkin images from the Gather Together stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on a small Whisper White panel.  I colored the pumpkins in using my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut them out using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I adhered the to the bottom of the Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small leaf image from the Colorful Seasons stamp set across the bottom of the envelope front in Cajun Craze, Pretty Peacock and Merry Merlot Inks.  I adhered a panel of the Come To Gather DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today for Fun Fold Friday.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Happy Stamping!!
