Stampin’ Up High Tide For Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is only hours away, I hope you have some fun plans.

For today I have a fun fold card that I honestly have never made before.  I was very pleased with myself that I did it on the first try.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with Global Design Project Color Challenge #197.  Here are their colors

I also joined in with Always Fun Challenge #118.  Their theme is “Anything Goes”.

I started by using the largest Layering Circle Die and adhering it with washi tape with the cutting side up in the center of the inside of a Pear Pizzazz card base .  I folded both sides closed and cut the oval out with my cutting machine.

I actually worked on the inside of my card first this time.  I stamped the sand image from the Stampin’ Up High Tide Photopolymer Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the 1st step of the lighthouse image from the High Tide stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink on top of the sand stamping off once.  I stamped the 2nd step of the lighthouse image from High Tide stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink over the first image.  I stamped the water image from High Tide stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink, masking off the lighthouse, some in full strength and some stamped off once.  I stamped the grass image from the High Tide stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink around the lighthouse.  I stamped the birds from the High Tide stamp set above the lighthouse in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink below the sand so that you wouldn’t see it when the card was closed.  I adhered the artwork panel to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the card front I cut the birthday sentiment from the Well Written Dies out of a panel of Seaside Spray cardstock.  I adhered it to the longer Whisper White strip, which I made into a banner using the Banner Triple Punch, using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I stamped part of the bird image from the High Tide stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to the left of the sentiment.  I adhered the banner to the tp left side of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals, putting it right up to the scored edge.

I cut the wishes sentiment out from the Well Written Dies from a panel of Seaside Spray cardstock.  I adhered it to the shorter Whisper White strip, which was also made into a banner using the Banner Triple Punch, using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I stamped the birds from the High Tide stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to the right of the sentiment.  I adhered the banner to the bottom right card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals making sure it was right up to the scored edge

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  My envelope seemed to get decorated just as much as my card this time.  I stamped everything on the envelope front and flap the same as I did for my card.

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

Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Z-Fold Birthday Card

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July.  Some of you may be lucky enough to have today off making this a 4 day weekend for you.

I have a masculine Z-Fold card for you today using one of my absolute favorite suites, Come Sail Away.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge.  Their challenge is ‘Any Occasion’.

I also played along with Seize The Birthday Challenge#169.  Their challenge is ‘Sunshine’.

My card also joined in with Stampin’ Up Only Challenge #226.  Their theme is ‘Birthdays’.

I started by scoring and folding my Night of Navy card base at 4 1/4″ and 2 1/8″.  I folded my card base in half and then I folded the front back.

I adhered a panel of Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to the 2 1/8″ piece of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Bakers Twine around the front folded piece and tied a square knot (it seemed appropriate).

I adhered a laser cut panel from the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack to a panel of Night of Navy cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the 2 1/8″ side using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the banner die from the Smooth Sailing Dies.  I edged the banner using my Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Marker then adhered it to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I adhered a panel of the Come Sail Away DSP to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the larger sailboat image from the Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink stamping off 3 times.  I stamped the sentiment from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink over the sailboat.  I stamped the birds from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the top of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a little Sail Away Trinket to the bottom corner using a Glue Dot so that you could see in when the card is opened or closed.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the lighthouse and sailboat from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Come Sail Away 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.  Z-Fold cards are one of the easiest Fun Fold card and you can do so many different things with it.  Stampin’ Up has made it very easy to order entire suites now.  I used everything that comes in the Come Sail Away Suite except for the 3D Embossing Folder.  One number now can order everything in the suite.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Above The Clouds Fun Fold Card

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  Welcome to Fun Fold Friday.   I’ve made a Corner Flip Fun Fold card for you today.  Here’s my card.

My card today joined in with Global Design Project Theme Challenge #195.  I didn’t even see this challenge until after my card was done.  Here is their theme for the week.

I started with a Thick Whisper White card base.  After scoring it at the 4 1/4″ mark,  I slid the end of the card to the 3″ mark on my trimmer.  The 8 1/2″ side should be up against the bottom edge.  I placed the cutting blade at the 2 1/2″ mark and cut to the 4 7/8″ mark.  I then turned the card with the 5 1/2″ side against the bottom edge and placed the long edge at the 3″ mark.  I placed the cutting blade at the 3″ mark and cut to the 5/8″ mark.  I turned the cut edge, which is in the middle of the card front, in from the bottom and brought it up to the top and using my Bone Folder gave a good press on the folded edges.

After flipping the cut piece, I adhered a panel of Night of Navy of Navy and Mango Melody to the turned panel.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the cluster of clouds from the Stampin’  Up Above The Clouds Photopolymer Stamp Set in Seaside Spray Ink.  I then stamped the cluster of hot air balloons from the Above The Clouds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the 2 large hot air balloons from the Above The Clouds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and punched them out using the Hot Air Balloon Punch.  I colored all the balloons in using my Call Me Clover, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Night of Navy, Poppy Parade and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork panel to the card front using Snail.  I adhered the 2 larger hot air balloons to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a scrap piece of Crumb Cake cardstock I stamped the balloon basket from the Above The Clouds stamp set in Soft Suede Ink twice and punched them out using the Hot Air Balloon Punch.  I adhered them using a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional to the bottom of the larger balloons.

I stamped the clouds from the Above The Clouds stamp set all around the card base in Seaside Spray Ink stamping off once.  I stamped a couple of the birds from the Above The Clouds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the card base.  On the bottom of the card base I stamped the sentiment from Above The Clouds stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Clear Stampin’ Emboss  Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.  It[s very hard to see, but I also stamped a few of the smaller balloons from the Above The Clouds stamp set in VersaMark Ink on either side of the sentiment.  I sprinkled them with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.

For the inside I took a panel of Night of Navy cardstock and using VersaMark Ink I stamped the smaller hot air balloons from the Above The Clouds stamp set all around.  I sprinkled the panel with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the Night of Navy panel to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a Whisper White panel, I stamped the sentiment from Above The Clouds stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center.  I stamped the clouds from the Above The Clouds stamp set around on the panel in Seaside Spray Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the small hot air balloons and the birds from the Above The Clouds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I colored the balloons in the same as I did for the card front.  To adhered the Whisper White panel so that it doesn’t show when the card is closed, I placed it behind the folded card front and folded the card back to it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the clouds from Above The Clouds stamp set all around the front of the envelope and on the bottom of the envelope flap in Seaside Spray Ink stamping off once. I stamped the birds and the smaller hot air balloons from the Above The Clouds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope flap and colored them in the same as I did for the card front.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you enjoyed today’s fun fold card and will give it a try.  I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Free As A Bird Thank You Card

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  I’m going to try to start making some kind of a Fun Fold card on Friday’s.  I’d love your input if you would like to see this or not.  The weekend is just a few hours away.  Has anyone made plans?  I’ll be working and I’m hoping to get in some craft time.

For my first Fun Fold Friday I have a gate fold card for you using the new Stampin’ Up Free As A Bird Cling Stamp Set.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with a couple challenges.  First is Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #393.  Here is their sketch.

Next I joined in with Color Throwdown Challenge #548. Here are their beautiful colors.

I started by folding my Blushing Bride card base at 2 1/8″ and 6 3/8″ to make the gate fold card.  I then randomly stamped the 2 flower images from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the card front.  I stamped the leaf image from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink randomly on the card front.

I stamped the birds on the branch image from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Highland Heather, Mint Macaron and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered 2 thin strips of Highland Heather cardstock on the top and bottom of the artwork using Snail.  I adhered the artwork to a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Putting Stampin’ Dimensionals only on one side of the matted artwork, I adhered it to my card front.  I also added a few Clear Epoxy Droplets to the artwork.

On the bottom right of my card front, below the artwork, I stamped the sentiment from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

On the inside I stamped the flowers from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the top and bottom corners of a Whisper White panel.  Doing the masking technique, I stamped the leaf image from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink around the flowers.  To do the masking technique, you stamp the flower image on a Post-It note and fussy cut it out.  After you stamp the flowers on the paper, you cover it with the fussy cut Post-It and stamp the leaf image over the top and it looks like it’s behind the flowers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail 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 larger bird image from Free As A Bird stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored it in using my Crumb Cake and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the flowers from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the envelope flap.  Doing the masking technique again, I stamped the leaf image from the Free As A Bird stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink.

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

So, for today’s card I have a quick and easy knid of a fun fold for you along with a sneak peek of  some new 2019-2021 In-Colors.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the new Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In-Colors Designer Series Paper to a Rococo Rose card base.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Enjoy Life Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock.  I stamped one of the butterflies from the Enjoy Life stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink above the sentiment.  I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut the matching scalloped square from the Layering Squares Dies from Rococo Rose cardstock.

I adhered the sentiment panel to the scalloped mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple of the new Rococo Rose 2019-2021 Faceted Dots to the artwork.

This is where it is kind of a fun fold.   The edges of the card do not meet, and I did this on purpose.  I added a strip of the Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In-Color DSP to the inside edge of the card.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Enjoy Life stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped one of the butterflies from the Enjoy Life stamp set in Pretty Peacock above the sentiment.  I stamped the tall floral image from the Enjoy Life stamp set on the bottom of the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the 2 end ones off once and the center one I stamped off twice.  I stamped the small flower image and the butterflies, both from the Enjoy Life stamp set, in Rococo Rose Ink between the tall flowers and above.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tall flowers from the Enjoy Life stamp set in  Pretty Peacock Ink on the envelope front, the same as I did for the card.  I stamped the small flowers and the butterflies from the Enjoy Life stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped a couple butterflies from the Enjoy Life stamp set on the envelope back in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I stamped a couple of the small flowers from the Enjoy Life stamp set on the envelope back in Rococo Rose Ink.  I adhered a piece of the Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In-Color 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 Over The Moon Sneak Peek Fun Fold Card

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s week?  Hopefully you all have a long weekend to look forward to.

For today’s card I have a sneak peek for you from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and it’s a fun fold card.  I’ve used the soon to be available Stampin’ Up Over The Moon Cling Stamp Set.  I’ve never been a huge cow fan, but I absolutely love this set.  I think it is just the cutest set and I just love the puns.  I can’t help but smile when I look at the cow images in the set.  Here’s my card.

I’ve joined in with 3 challenges for today’s card.  1st is the Festive Friday Challenge #034.  Here is their challenge.

Next I played along with Global Design Project #190.  Here is their sketch challenge.

I’ve also joined in with Sunday Stamps Challenge #205.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a piece of Sahara Sand Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper, which will be retiring June 3rd, to the inside and front panel of a Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped one of the cow images from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the cow in using my Light Basic Black, Real Red and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.    I stamped the sentiment from Over The Moon stamp set on a diagonal in the top left corner of the Whisper White panel in Smoky Slate Ink.  I adhered a strip of Real Red cardstock along the bottom of the Whisper White panel using Snail.  I adhered a thin strip of Basic Black cardstock along the bottom edge of the Real Red strip using Snail.  I stamped the moon image from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips.  I applied Wink Of Stella on the moon to make it shimmer then adhered it on the bottom of the Whisper White panel using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Snail then to a Basic Black mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals, only on the left half of the artwork.

I adhered another piece of the Sahara Sand Neutrals 6 X 6 DSP to the inside smaller side of the Sahara Sand card base.  I stamped another one of the cow images from the Over The Moon stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off 3 times to get a very light image, on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the cow image, in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, making sure it was under the front panel.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Wisper White Envelope.  I stamped the cow image from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the front of the envelope.  I colored it in the same as I did for the card.  I also stamped the thought bubble from the Over The Moon stamp set above the cow image and colored the heart in with my Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Sahara Sand Neutrals 6 X 6 DSP on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  The Stampin’ Up Over The Moon Stamp Set will be available on June 4th for purchase, that’s in just 11 short days.  I hope everyone has a wonderful long Holiday Weekend and you have fun with whatever plans you have.  Happy stamping!!

It looks like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).

Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Sneak Peek for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month and that means it’s time for another Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop. The 2nd Tuesday of every month this amazing group of ladies put together a blog hop and you are guaranteed to see some awesome projects. This month our theme is ‘MASCULINE’. We can interpret this any way we would like to. If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s projects. If you’ve hopped over from Amy Koenders, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by.

For today’s card I have a little sneak peek for you along with a Fun Fold card.  I used the Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Stamp Set, the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper, the Come Sail Away Memories and More Card Pack and one of the new 2019-2021 In-Colors Seaside Spray, all which will be available June 4th.  I really struggle with masculine cards, but I had so much fun with this one.  The Sailing Home Suite makes it really easy to make a masculine card.  Here’s my card.

I started with the new 2019-2021 In-Color, Seaside Spray cardstock and scored it at 2 3/4″ and 8 1/4″ to make a gate fold card.

On the 2 sides I adhered a panel of the new Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I made a little collage for the overlapping panel.  I stamped 2 of the Whisper White panels with the sailboat image and sentiment from the new Sailing Home stamp set in Night Of Navy Ink.  I adhered the anchor and banner stickers, that come in the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack, on the 2 smaller panels.  I sponged all the panels using my Stamping Sponge and Sahara Sand Ink.  I then adhered all the pieces to a panel of Night Of Navy cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue so that I had a little wiggle room.  I adhered the collaged panel to one side of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I tied a knot using the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Bakers Twine and adhered it to the artwork using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up High Tide Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the water from the same set on the bottom of the panel in Seaside Spray Ink.  I stamped the lighthouse from the Sailing Home stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink and the birds from the same stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Snail and then adhered it to the inside of the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the front of the envelope similar to the inside of the card adding the sailboat from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered a panel of Come Sail Away DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card, this was a lot of fun to make.  The Come Sail Away Suite made it so easy.  If you like the items I used, they will be available June 4th.  Happy Stamping!!
