Stampin’ Up! Seaside Notions Birthday for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Karen Finkle’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Celebrate Summer”.  We can interpret this however we want.  I chose to make a birthday care since I have a lot of summer birthdays.  Here’s my card.

I played along with Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #343.  Here is their Inspiration.  I’d like to be at any of these places right now.  I love spending time on the beach, it’s so peaceful and relaxing to me listening to the waves and seagulls.

I started by stamping the coral, seahorse and seashell images from the Stampin’ Up! Seaside Notions Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the images in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Petal Pink and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered them each to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the sentiment from Seaside Notions stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of a Petal Pink card front and embossed the panel using my Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the matted panel and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Calypso Coral card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Elegant Faceted Gems.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set in the center of a Whisper White panel in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the coral image from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Soft Suede Ink and colored it in using my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Calypso Coral card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the seahorse and coral images from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front and the seashell image on the envelope flap.  I colored the images in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Petal Pink and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for visiting by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.

Stampin’ Up! Framed Flowers for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday!!  How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is upon us, do you have any plans?  I had a wonderful day at the beach yesterday.  It looked a little iffy when we first got there with the fog and clouds, but it turned out to be an absolutely gorgeous day.  The sun was shining and the water was perfect.  By the afternoon we couldn’t even sit at our blanket the sun got so hot, so we went in the ocean for over an hour.  The waves were awesome, I’m guessing because of the storm we are supposed to get today.  I only came home with a little sunburn (ok, maybe a lot) and blistered feet because of the sand being so darn hot.  The beach is my happy place and now today it’s back to reality.

I have a corner flip fold card for you today.  Here’s my card.

I played along with The Paper Players Challenge #498.  Here is their Theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Flowers For Every Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I then cut my card front using my Paper Trimmer.  I placed the card front bottom edge down, at the 3″ mark on my trimmer and cut from the 2 1/2″ mark up to the 4 7/8″ mark.  I turned my card base a 1/4 turn (so the outside edge was down) and place it at the 3″ mark again on my trimmer.  I cut from the 3″ mark down to the 5/8″ mark.  I pushed the cut piece through from the bottom and flipped it around so the inside was now on the outside.

I stamped the frame image from the Stampin’ Up! Framed For You Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a Cinnamon Cider panel.  I cut the frame out using the largest and 5th from largest squares from my Layering Squares Dies.  I adhered a small panel of Flowers For Every Season  DSP to the flipped corner using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the frame over the DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added Antique Corners from the Antique Corners & Slides Elements to the 4 corners of the frame using Glue Dots.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Hippo & Friends Dies.  I adhered a piece of Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In-Color 1/4″ Ribbon to the bottom of the card front using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the sentiment  and the inner liner which shows through to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf images from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Just Jade Ink around the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf images from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Just Jade Ink along the bottom front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Flowers For Every Season 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Slice of Happiness

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off? Hope everyone is having a productive one.  I’m hoping the weather holds out and I can take a trip down the shore this week.  Where we go, we have to buy tickets in advance now with everything going on. Tickets go on sale at 7am and last week my niece and nephew tried to go and they were sold out before 7:10.  They are really limiting how many people can go on the beach, so fingers crossed that no one wants to go Thursday.

I have one more card for you today using the adorable Stampin’ Up! Cute Fruit Photopolymer Stamp Set from the beginner catalog and it’s a super simple one.  If you are new at stamping, this catalog is perfect for you.  It all starts with simple stamping, I just kind of added a little extra.  Here’s my card for you.

My colors were from TGIF Challenge #271.  Here are their colors.

I started by cutting 6 of the smallest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies out of Whisper White cardstock and 6 out of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.  I adhered the squares to a Granny Apple Green card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Stampin’ Seal.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the citrus fruit images from the Cute Fruit stamp set.  I stamped the outer lime image in Granny Apple Green and the inner lime image in Granny Apple Green stamped off once.  I stamped the outer orange image in Mango Melody Ink and the inner orange image in Mango Melody Ink stamped off once.  I stamped the outer grapefruit image in Mango Melody Ink stamped off once and the inner grapefruit image in Flirty Flamingo Ink stamped off once.  I stamped the smiley face image from the Cute Fruit stamp set on the limes in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

I adhered all the fruit images to the stitched white squares using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Cute Fruit stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Mango Melody panel.  I cut the panel out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  There wasn’t one that fit perfectly so I had to make my own.  I did this by cutting part way through with the 2nd smallest Stitched Rectangle Die.  I moved the rectangle and made sure that the stitches were lined up, turned it around and ran it through my die cutting machine part way through again.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a multi looped bow with Linen Thread and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the matted card front to a Basic Black card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the fruit with out faces and the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment form the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the citrus fruit image from the Cute Fruit stamp set around the sentiment in Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody Inks.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the citrus fruit image from the Cute Fruit stamp set on the bottom of the envelope front in Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody Ink.  I stamped the face image from the Cute Fruit on the fruit in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Blossoms In Bloom Birthday

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?

Today’s card was a little more detailed that I expected.  Did you every read the book ‘If You Give A Mouse A Cookie”?  Well that’s what happen to my card, I just kept going with it.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by cutting the panels of Mint Macaron, Pretty Peacock and So Saffron cardstock using the outlined die from the Many Layered Blossoms Dies.  I cut the Vellum cardstock using the solid die from the Many Layered Blossoms Dies.  I cut the small flower dies from the Many Layered Blossoms Dies out of the Highland Heather cardstock.

I adhered the Pretty Peacock layer to the top of the Vellum Layer using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I took apart the Highland Heather, Mint Macaron and So Saffron die cuts and fit the pieces in like a puzzle adhering them all with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Once all the pieces were attached, I adhered the floral image to a Blushing Bride card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Blossoms In Bloom Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the strip into a banner and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front and sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large floral image from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink around the floral image.  I adhered the Highland Heather die cut flowers on the corners of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large floral image from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set on the envelope front in Blushing Bride Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink around the floral image.  I stamped the small flower images from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set in Highland Heather Ink on the envelope flap. I stamped the small leaf image from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink around the small flowers.

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

Stampin’ Up! Swirly Birthday CAS

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and Happy Independence Day!! I hope you are all enjoying your weekend and you have some fun plans for today.  There aren’t any fireworks around here this year, but I’m sure I’ll hear them going off somewhere with people setting them off.  Luckily fireworks and thunder don’t bother my dog at all.

For today’s card I have a very clean and simple card for you.  For those of you that know me, you know clean and simple is not me, but I thought I’d give it a try again.  I thought it was appropriate to make it Red, White and Blue.  Here’s my card for today.

My sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #442.  Here is their sketch.

My colors are from Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge #248, Red, White and Blue.

I played along with Seize The Birthday Challenge #194.  Here is their theme.

I joined in with Color My Heart Color Dare #401.  Here is their inspiration Board.

I started by stamping the small square from the Stampin’ Up! Swirly Frames Photopolymer Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Whisper White card front.  I stamped the small circle from the Swirly Frames stamp set in Real Red Ink over the square.  I stamped the small rectangle from the Swirly Frames stamp set in Real Red Ink overlapping the circle and square image.

On a strip of Misty Moonlight cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Power and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the sentiment over the shapes on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the Whisper White card front to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered a Real Red panel to the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted card front to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the circle and rectangle images from the Swirly Frames stamp set in Real Red on either side of the panel.  I stamped the small dot image from the Swirly Frames stamp set in Real Red Ink under the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal, then to a Real Red mat using Stampin’ Seal and finally to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the circle and rectangle image from the Swirly Frames stamp set in Real Red Ink on the envelope front and flap.  I stamped the square image from the Swirly Frames stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the envelope front and flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Enjoy your day with whatever you do and stay safe.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! So Much Happy

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  We’re halfway through the week already and heading to a long holiday weekend.  I hope you all have Friday off for the 4th of July.

For today I used another new bundle from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by cutting the ‘HAPPY’ out of a panel of Playing With Patterns 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper using my Happy Dies.  I adhered it to a Night of Navy panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the sentiment on an angle on a panel of Purple Posy card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut out 2 strips of banners using my Happy Dies, one in Calypso Coral and one in Coastal Cabana.  I adhered one above and one below the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Paper Snips I trimmed all the excess that was hanging over the card front panel.  I stamped 1 large balloon and 2 small balloons from the Stampin’ Up! So Much Happy Cling Stamp Set in Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana Inks on a Whisper White panel.  I cut the balloons, 3 strings and 3 bows out using my Happy Dies.  I adhered the strings to the back of the balloons using Glue Dots and the bows to the front of the balloons using a tiny dot of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the balloons to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the So Much Happy stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I fussy cut the sentiment using my Paper Snips and adhered it below the die cut sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the card front to a Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large & small balloons and strings from the So Much Happy stamp set in Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana Inks.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large & small balloons and strings from the So Much Happy stamp set in Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana Inks.  I adhered a panel of Playing With Patterns DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Bloom and Grow Hello

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  It is not supposed to be a nice day here.  Severe thunder storms are expected, we’ll see what happens.

My colors for today’s card were inspired by more flowers around my house in my gardens and flower pots and of course these are not my favorites, but the flowers all look so pretty.  The marigolds, I had seeds from last years plants so I threw them in a pot to see what would happen, they are growing like weeds.  The tiny orange flowers attract butterflies and I have them in 3 different gardens.

Here is my card using these colors.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Mango Melody mat using Stampin’ Seal then adhering it to a Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I embossed a small panel of Daffodil Delight card stock using the Greenery Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Mango Melody mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Bloom & Grow Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Bloom & Grow stamp set above the image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Poppy Parade and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Mango Melody mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I adhered a strip of the In Good Taste DSP to the edge of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in the center of the panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped 3 of the small floral images from the Bloom & Grow stamp set on the bottom of the panel and colored them in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Poppy Parade and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mango Melody mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped 3 of the small floral images from the Bloom & Grow stamp set across the bottom of the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Poppy Parade and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Sunflower Birthday for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Is anyone doing anything for the weekend?  I’m working Saturday, but as of now I don’t have to go in on Sunday, YAY!  It’s been a long couple days for me here.  My daughter went away with her friend and family, so I haven’t had my side kick around.  Her and I do almost everything together.  I don’t know what I will do when she moves out for good (more crafting I’m guessing).  I can’t complain, I don’t know any 22 year old’s that want to spend time with their parents like she does.

For today’s card I tried another new fun fold to me.  It’s a quarter fold card and it’s really a lot easier that it looks.  I had this card done so quick I had to double check I was doing it correctly.  Here’s my card for today.

This card uses 2 – 1/2 sheets of cardstock.  I started by scoring a 4 1/4″ X 11″ Bumble Bee card base at 2 3/4″ and 8 1/4″.  I then scored an 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ Bumble Bee card base at 2 1/8″ on each end.  So you are starting with 2 Gate Fold cards.

I adhered the 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ card base inside the 4 1/4″ X 11″ card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue as pictured above.

I cut 4 pieces of Flowers For Every Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper (measurements below) and adhered them to the Bumble Bee card base, while the card was closed to make sure I got them in the correct place, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The DSP panels are 2 different sizes, so do a dry fit to make sure you put the correct piece on the correct card base panel. Directions below on how to close the card.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the small sunflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Bumble Bee Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink above the sunflower.  I cut the image out using the 2nd die from the Hippo & Friends Dies.  I don’t usually buy dies without the stamp set, but this die set is awesome.  There are so many framing dies I just had to have it.  I adhered the die cut sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals just on the top left side.  You only want the Dimensionals there because of opening and closing the card.  I added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Best Year stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in the 2 corners of the panel in Bumble Bee Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

This card makes a great Gift Card holder too.  Once you fold it up, the gift card is on the inside and can’t fall out.  Now onto how to fold the card.

1 you fold in the left panel.

You then fold the top panel down.  It’s just like folding a box up.

You fold the right side over, tucking it under the sentiment.

You fold the bottom panel up and tuck it under the sentiment and under the right side like you would fold a box up.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Bumble Bee Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Flowers for Every Season 6 X 6 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Four Season Floral CAS

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Hope you are having a productive one.

For today I have a CAS card for you using a set that is  in the 2020-2021 Beginner Brochure. Here’s my card for today.

I started by embossing a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper across the middle of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the rose image from the Stampin’ Up! Four Seasons Floral Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Just Jade and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the 4th largest circle from the Layering Circles Dies and adhered it to a scallop mat, which I cut from a panel of Seaside Spray cardstock from the same dies, using Stampin’ Seal.

I wrapped a piece of Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Four Seasons Floral stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the rose image from the Four Seasons Floral stamp set in both corners of the panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored them in using my Just Jade and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Seaside Spray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the rose image from the Four Seasons Floral stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using my Just Jade and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Seaside View for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Are you ready for the weekend?  I have to work all day Saturday, but Sunday I have off.  I was sure to tell my boss on Wednesday that I had plans on Father’s Day and he doesn’t believe it’s going to be all that busy that I would have to go in, YAY!!

I have a double Z-Fold card for you today using one of my favorite new sets from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Sunday Stamps Color Challenge #233.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with Just Add Ink Challenge #510.  Here is their theme.

I started with the smaller Sahara Sand Z-Fold card by scoring it at 4 1/2″ & 7 1/2″.  I embossed the front fold using the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the larger image from the Stampin’ Up! Seaside View Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Balmy Blue, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Just Jade and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I then stamped the waves in the water using the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Pacific Point Ink.  I stamped the sand speckles from the Stampin’ Up! Seaside Notions Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I cut the image out using the 4th largest die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to the front of the Sahara Sand card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I fussy cut the sentiment and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the top corner of the artwork.  I added a few Calypso Coral Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.

I adhered a panel of the Whale of a Time 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Balmy Blue mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the back panel of the large Pacific Point card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the small card base to the larger card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the back panel and Stampin’ Dimensionals on the front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Seaside View stamp set on 2 different panels of Whisper White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the Adirondack chair image from the Seaside View stamp set on one panel and the palm tree and bird images from the Seaside View stamp set on the other panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral, Just Jade and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panels to Balmy Blue mats using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the chair and palm tree images from the Seaside View stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and colored the images in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Whale of a Time 6 X 6 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. Happy Stamping!!
