Stampin’ Up! Party Puffins Pop-Up for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans for the weekend?

Before I get started I just wanted to remind you that my 2021-2022 Annual Catalogs have arrived. If you are a customer of mine, I have sent one out to you and you should be receiving it very soon. If you’d like a copy of the catalog, send me a note at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com and I will get one in the mail to you. Also, I am offering a Designer Series Paper share from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. If you are interested or want to know what a product share is, click HERE.

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’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Party Puffins Cling Stamp Set from the upcoming 2021-2022 Annual Catalog along with the Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog.

I started by placing a panel of Ice Cream Corner DSP on the front of a Blackberry Bliss card base lining up the bottom and sides with a slight border, and cutting it using my Basic Border Dies. I adhered the Ice Cream Corner DSP to the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped one of the puffin images from the Party Puffins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White circle I cut using my Layering Circle Dies and colored the image in using my Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Party Puffins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a strip of Basic White cardstock and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front.

I adhered a panel of Ice Cream Corner DSP to the bottom inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment on a panel of Basic White cardstock and adhered it above the DSP panel using Stampin’ Seal.

I took a small panel of Blackberry Bliss cardstock and scored it at 1″, 2″ & 3″. I folded on the score lines. I folded the panel in half and adhered Stampin’ Seal to the edge of the folded panel and adhered it to the top center of the Basic White panel. Keeping the panel folded in half, I added some Stampin’ Seal to the top edge of the small panel and folded the top of the card base down on it to make my little pop-up. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the puffin, birthday cake and fish images from the Party Puffins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Bermuda Bay, Blackberry Bliss, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the images and adhered them to the pop-up using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped one of the puffins from the Party Puffins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Ice Cream Corner DSP to the envelope flap

Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Sneak Peek 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 will not be working this weekend YAY!!! I have a virtual Stampin’ Up! On Tour on Saturday, which is like a mini convention. Sunday we have our team meeting so since it’s in the middle of the afternoon I couldn’t work, so I have the whole weekend off.

Before I get started I just wanted to remind you that my 2021-2022 Annual Catalogs will be in on Monday. If you are a customer of mine, I will be sending one out to you ASAP. If you’d like a copy of the catalog, send me a note at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com and I will get one in the mail to you. Also, I am offering a Designer Series Paper share from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. If you are interested or want to know what a product share is, visit my blog from yesterday morning HERE.

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’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Bundle for my card along with the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper.

I started by adhering 4 panels of Pansy Petals DSP to 4 Basic White mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panels to the 2 front side panels and the 2 back side panels of the Evening Evergreen card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the top of the panel. I stamped the newspaper print image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink, stamped off once, across the stem of the flower image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal. On a scrap of Pale Papaya cardstock I stamped the newspaper print image in Soft Succulent Ink, stamping off once. I cut 2 butterflies using my Meadow Dies from the stamped newsprint and 2 from a solid piece. I adhered the printed butterflies on top of the solid butterflies, just on the bodies, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the butterflies to the side panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the bottom butterfly. I added a Bumblebee Trinket to the artwork using a Glue Dot.

On the inside (or back), I stamped the sentiment from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in the 2 corners of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the flowers in using my Fresh Freesia and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the back of the Evening Evergreen card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set twice on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the flowers in using my Fresh Freesia and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Pansy Petals 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. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

Stampin’ Up! Whale Done 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? Some of you may have already started your weekend. I’m actually off today and I’ll be making Easter egg bread all day. Except for last year, I always take Good Friday to spend making my bread since it’s an all day affair with all the risings and shaping and baking. If I’m lucky in between risings I’ll get to run to my craft area and play for a bit. Is anyone having Easter dinner at their house? I’ll be having Easter brunch with my family, my niece and her family and my nephew. Nice quiet early afternoon.

Before I forget, yesterday I was able to order the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalogs. Are you a customer of mine? If so, you will be getting one in the mail as soon as I get them. If you’d like to be a customer of mine and would like a copy of the catalog, send me an email at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com and I will get one in the mail to you. I was also able to order some new goodies from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. I can’t wait to share what I got and wait till you see the new 2021-2023 In-Colors. They are gorgeous!!!

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’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Whale Done Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by scoring and folding a Night of Navy card base. On the 8 1/4″ side I scored at 1″, 2″, 3″, 5 1/4″, 6 1/4″ & 7 1/4″. I turned the card a 1/4 turn and placed the edge on the 1″ mark of my Paper Trimmer and cut from the 1″ score line to the 3″ score line, then from the 5 1/4″ score line to the 7 1/4′ score line. I moved the edge to the 2″ mark on my trimmer and made the same cuts. I put the opposite edge on the 1″ mark on my trimmer and made the same cuts, moved it to the 2″ mark and made the same cuts again. I folded the card as pictured in the template below.

Here is a view of how it looks from the top.

I adhered strips of the Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper to the 2 long side panels and the top and bottom of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of the Whale of a Time DSP using the largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies and adhered it to the center using Stampin’ Seal.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I stamped the jellyfish image from the Whale Done stamp set in Versamark Ink on the top of the square. I immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. Using my Blending Brush, I added some Pool Party Ink on the panel. The embossed jellyfish resisted the ink. I stamped the seaweed image from the Whale Done stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the coral image from the Whale Done stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on the bottom center of the panel. I adhered the stitched square to the card base using a little Multipurpose Liquid Glue in the center and Glue Dots on the corners. On a separate panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the turtle image from the Whale Done stamp set 3 times in Soft Suede Ink. I colored the turtles in using my Granny Apple Green, Just Jade and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut all the turtles using my Paper Snips. I adhered the turtles to the stitched square using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Clear Epoxy Droplets from the Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets (I forgot to add these on my video)

On the back of the card base I adhered strips of Whale of a Time DSP to either side of the card base. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Whale Done stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink. I stamped the fish image twice from the Whale Done stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment. I stamped the seahorse image from the Whale Done stamp set in Soft Suede Ink to the side of the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pool Party mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the back of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the seaweed image from the Whale Done stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the front of the envelope. I stamped the coral and fish images from the Whale Done stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Whale of a Time 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. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

Stampin’ Up! Hot Dog Birthday 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’ll be at work both days once again. We normally have a family dinner on Palm Sunday, but because of work and Covid we didn’t last year and are not this year again. Hopefully next year things will be back to our normal.

I have a gate card for you today. This is not the one I was going to do on my Facebook live this past Wednesday, I’m saving that one for next Wednesday. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Hot Dog Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card along with the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper.

I started by cutting a panel of Basic white cardstock using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Hot Dog stamp set on the top left of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the dog, the birthday hat and the bow tie images from the Hot Dog stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink below the sentiment and colored them in using my Just Jade, Seaside Spray and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered 2 panels of Playful Pets DSP to Basic White mats using Stampin’ Seal and then to both sides of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the artwork to a Seaside Spray mat, which I cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies, using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered panel to the left side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a Playful Pets Trinket by the sentiment using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the dog image from the Hot Dog stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Just Jade, Seaside Spray and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to the center of a Playful Pets DSP panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the panel to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the dog and hat images from the Hot Dog stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the front of the envelope and colored them in using my Just Jade, Seaside Spray and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Playful Pets 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! Flowering Cactus 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’ll be working both days again.

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’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Cactus Product Medley for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Flowering Cactus Designer Series Paper to the front of a Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a strip of the Flowering Cactus DSP to the inside edge of the Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I stamped the sand image from the Flowering Cactus Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink on the Basic White square. I stamped the smallest cactus from the Flowering Cactus stamp set on the top of the panel in Mossy Meadow Ink twice. I stamped the flower image on each of the cactus in Calypso Coral Ink. I cut the tall thin cactus image using my Cactus Dies from a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock and adhered it to the panel using Glue Dots. From a panel of the Flowering Cactus DSP I cut the other cactus and flower images out using the Cactus Dies. I adhered the smaller cactus to the Basic White panel using Glue Dots. I adhered the larger cactus image to the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the flower to the larger cactus using Glue Dots. On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink and adhered it to the top of the cactus using Glue Dots. I adhered the artwork to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panel to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of the Linen Thread around the 1 1/4″ fold twice and tied a knot. I adhered the matted artwork on the 1 1 4/” panel over the knot using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Cactus stamp set in the center of a Basic White panel in Mossy Meadow Ink. I stamped the medium cactus from the Flowering Cactus stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Mint Macaron Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cactus images from the Flowering Cactus stamp set on the front of the envelope in Mint Macaron and Mossy Meadow. I stamped the flowers on the cactus in Calypso Coral. I adhered a panel of the Flowering Cactus 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. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells 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’m actually off this weekend from both my jobs. We do have our ‘In Person’ team meeting virtually this Sunday. I always look forward to the meeting even if we can’t meet up with everyone in person.

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’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle along with the Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper.

I started by scoring and folded my 5 1/2″ X 11″ card base at 4 1/4″, 7 1/2″ & 10 3/4″. I placed the 1/4″ scored line to the bottom of my Paper Trimmer and the left side of the card base at the 5/8″ mark. I cut from the 4 1/4″ scored line (which is now at the 6 3/4″ mark on your trimmer) all the way down. I cut at the 4 1/4″ scored line down the 5/8″ and removed the strip. On the 1/4″ fold line, using my Paper Snips, I trimmed the small piece off the top so that the 1/4″ fold line measures 4 1/4″. I adhered a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive on the 1/4″ fold line and adhered the 2 3/4″ X 4 1/4″ panel of Seaside Spray cardstock.

For the front of the card I embossed a panel of Pearlescent Specialty Paper using the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder and I adhered it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink and cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies. I adhered it to the top of the panel using Glue Dots. I stamped the shells and starfish on scraps of the Sand & Sea DSP and cut them out using my Seaside Shells Dies. I stamped the sand dollar on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Sahara Sand Ink and immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I adhered panels of the Sea & Sand DSP to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I embossed a panel of the Sand & Sea DSP using the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder for the inside front panel and adhered it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped one of the scallop shells in Blushing Bride Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside panel using Stampin’ Seal.

On the other 2 Basic White panels I stamped the sentiments from the Seaside View stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. On the larger panel I stamped the sand dollar and starfish images from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the bottom. On the center panel I stamped the scallop shell from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the bottom. I adhered the panels to the inside of the card base using Stampin’ Seal. I added a few Opal Rounds to the card front and the inside panels.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the sand dollar & star fish from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. I stamped the scalloped shells in Blushing Bride and Seaside Spray Ink. I adhered a panel of Sand & Sea DSP, which I embossed using the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder, to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up Friend Like You Inside Out card 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’ll be working both days this weekend again. Saturday at the hardware store and Sunday at the dog bakery. Of course it’s suppose to be a beautiful weekend so I’m sure both places will be crazy busy.

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’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Friend Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Artistry Blooms DSP to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the sentiment from the Friend Like You stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock which I cut using the Tasteful Labels Dies. I stamped the dragonfly image from the Friend Like You stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the side of the sentiment. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the card front. I tied a small bow using the 1/8″ Night of Navy ribbon from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot.

For the card base I scored a 9 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ panel of Thick Basic White cardstock at 4 1/4″, 4 3/4″ and 5 1/4″. I folded the card base in half on the 4 3/4″ score line. I folded the card base back on the 4 1/4″ & 5 1/4″ score lines. I adhered the center together using Tear & Tape.

On one side of the inside (which will be the outside), I adhered a panel of Artistry Blooms DSP using Multipurpose Liquid glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Friend Like You stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of the panel. I stamped the grass image from the Friend Like You stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the dragonfly mage from the Friend Like You stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel on top of the Artistry Blooms DSP using Stampin’ Seal.

On the other side of the inside I adhered another panel of Artistry Blooms DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Friend Like You stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I stamped the palm tree image from the Friend Like You stamp set on the bottom of the panel using Soft Suede and Granny Apple Green Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel on top of the Artistry Blooms DSP using Stampin’ Seal.

Using my Friendly Silhouette Dies and cut 2 of the floral dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock and one of the cattail dies from a panel of Granny Apple Green cardstock. I colored the cattails in using my Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I colored the floral dies in using my Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather, Poppy Parade and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the cattail die behind one of the floral dies using Glue Dots. I adhered the floral die to one side of the raised cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid glue. I adhered the double die to the back side of the raised cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue making sure it is facing forward. I added a couple Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins to both of the Basic White panels by the sentiments.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the palm trees and dragonflies images from the Friend Like You on the envelope front in Granny Apple Green, Night of Navy and Soft Suede Inks. I adhered a panel of the Artistry Blooms 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. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

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’ll be working both days this weekend. It’s the end of the month so I have to work in the office for a bit on Sunday.

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. I used the Stampin’ Up! A Touch Of Ink Sale-A-Bration Photopolymer Stamp Set and Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper for my card. These 2 items will only be available for 2 more days. Sale-A-Bration ends on Sunday February 28, 2021. Here’s my card for today.

I played along with Festive Friday Challenge #0078. I have Flower, Glitter (the gems), it’s for Girls/Women, there’s a Fun Fold and Female Sentiment.

I started by adhering a Petal Pink panel to the front of my Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a Paper Blooms DSP card front to a Rococo Rose mat using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the outline butterfly image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I stamped over the outline with the fill image in Petal Pink Ink. I cut the image out using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I adhered it to a Night of Navy square mat, that I cut using my Layering Squares Dies, using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the sentiment from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and cut it out using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I adhered it to a Night of Navy mat which I also cut using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I took a 2″ X 6″ strip of Night of Navy card stock and scored it at 2″ & 2 1/4″. I punched the longer end using my Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. I adhered the sentiment to the shorter end, before the 1st score line of the Night of Navy strip, only putting adhesive on the left side of the sentiment. I folded on the 2 score lines and adhered the matted butterfly image on the edge of the 2nd score line using Tear & Tape Adhesive. Using my Classic Label Punch, I centered it from side to side on the card front and pushed the card front in as far as it would go and punched the label. I inserted the Night of Navy strip from the front to the back of the card front, inserting the scalloped end in first. I added Tear & Tape Adhesive just to the outside edge of the sentiment and adhered it to the card front about 1/2″ from the right side. I adhered the card front to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Thoughts Cling
Stamp Set
in the center of a Basic White panel in Night of Navy Ink. I stamped the outline butterfly image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the butterfly fill image over the outlined image in Petal Pink Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the butterfly image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Paper Blooms 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. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

Stampin’ Up! Darling Donkey for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Fun Fold Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.

I used the Sale-A-Bration Stampin’ Up! Darling Donkey Cling Stamp Set for my card along with the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper to make a drapery fold for you. With this DSP the flowers matched up perfectly for me with the folds. Here is our theme for this week.

I started with a panel of Flower & Field DSP that measured 11 1/2″ X 4″ and scored it at 3″, 4″, 6″, 7″, 9″ & 10″. I made a little mark 1″ down on the end and cut from the 3″ score line to the 1″ mark. See the diagram below. I made mountain folds at the 4″, 7″ & 10″ score lines. I made valley folds at the 3″, 6″ & 9″ score lines.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sitting donkey image from the Darling Donkey stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Gray Granite, Ivory and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the folded DSP to the card front using Stampin’ Seal just on the 3″ X 4″ end. I stamped the sentiment from the Darling Donkey stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink next to the donkey once I knew there was enough room. I adhered the 1″ end using Stampin’ Seal on the Basic White and adhering the DSP down. I added a couple Glue Dots between the folds to hold them in place. I trimmed the excess off using my Paper Snips. The folded DSP measured 4″ X 5 1/2″ but I wanted it to fit my 4″ X 5 1/4″ card front so I had to trim.

I wrapped a piece of Bumblebee 1/4″ In-Color Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow. I added a few Bumblebee 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front. I adhered the card front to a Poppy Parade card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Touch Of Ink Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the standing donkey from the Darling Donkey stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green, Gray Granite, Ivory, Petal Pink and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a strip of the Flower & Field DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampn’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Bumblebee mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the donkey image from the Darling Donkey stamp set on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card. I stamped the little star image from the Darling Donkey stamp set around the donkey in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered a panel of the Flower & Field DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s week? We got another 8″ of snow yesterday topped with a little ice. I’m really ready for spring and to start planting my flowers. Are you ready for the weekend? I’m actually only working on Sunday this weekend. I was shocked when I looked at my calendar, but it was a very pleasant surprise.

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 very much. 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. I used the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today. I really didn’t think I was going to like this set when it came out last year, but I have gotten so much use of it between birthday cards and Mother’s Day cards. I’m really loving this set. Here’s my card that I made.

My colors for today’s card were from Inspire. Create. Challenge # 084.

I started with a panel of True Love Designer Series Paper cutting the panel only to the flowers then fussy cutting them using my Paper Snips. I colored just the center flowers in on the DSP using my Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I scored a Rococo Rose card base at 2 3/4″ & 5 1/2″, scoring and folding on both folds inward. I adhered a panel of Love You Always Specialty Designer Series Paper to the bottom front section of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the cut and colored panel of True Love DSP to the top of the DSP using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the sentiment from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Rococo Rose ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and cut it out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and cut it out using the 3rd smallest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I stamped the flower image on the bottom of the die cut panel in Rococo Rose Ink. I stamped the rose fill image in Rococo Rose Ink over the outlined image stamping off twice. I adhered a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock to the inside of the Rococo Rose card base using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the flower image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink in the 4 corners of the panel. I adhered the scalloped sentiment to the Sahara Sand panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I made 2 small bows using the Blushing Bride 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon. I adhered 1 to the inside sentiment using a Glue Dot. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I first adhered the 2nd Blushing Bride bow to the top of the front of the card base using a Glue Dot. I adhered a panel of Love You Always Specialty DSP to the envelope flap. I stamped the outline flower image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set on the envelope front in Rococo Rose.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.
