Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Fun Fold

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’ll be working all weekend at both jobs.

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. Here’s my card that I made.

I used just about everything from the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Suite for my card. I will explain everything the best I can, but it’s much easier if you watch the video. This card also used the most colors I’ve ever used on a card. To me, there are a lot of colors in the ocean.

I started by adhering a panel of Sea & Sand Designer Series Paper to a Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Pearlescent Specialty Paper using the largest die from the Seaside Shells Dies. I stamped all the coordinating shells from the Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blushing Bride, Highland Heather, Petal Pink, Seaside Spray and So Saffron Inks right on the die cut piece. I embossed the die cut piece using the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder then snipped the shells away from the seaweed using my Paper Snips.

Using the largest die from the Seaside Shells Dies again, I cut a panel of Soft Seafoam cardstock and embossed it using the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the Soft Seafoam die cut/embossed panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the stamped shells, that I snipped, to the Soft Seafoam die cut panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink and cut the panel using the oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies. This part was a little different from my video. On my video I stamped the sentiment on a panel of the Pearlescent Specialty Paper, but the sentiment didn’t show up dark enough so I re- stamped it on Basic White. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Opal Rounds to the card front.

The inside is where the fun fold comes in. I took a piece of Sea & Sand DSP and folded it like an accordion. I adhered the front 2 1/4″ panel to the front inside of the card base using Tear & Tape. I added Tear & Tape to the back 2 1/4″ panel, folded the DSP into the accordion and folded the back of the card base on top of it.

It will look like the above photo from the top.

I took a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock and cut 3 squares from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I embossed them using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. Using the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set and scraps of cardstock I stamped the smallest shell in Pool Party Ink on Pool Party cardstock. I stamped the starfish in Cinnamon Cider Ink on Cinnamon Cider cardstock. I stamped one of the seaweed images in Pear Pizzazz Ink on Pear Pizzazz cardstock and the other seaweed image in Mint Macaron Ink on Mint Macaron cardstock. I stamped the sand dollar image in Sahara Sand Ink on Basic White cardstock. I cut all the images out using the Seaside Shells Dies. I adhered the dies to the squares the way I wanted using Glue Dots then adhered the squares to the folds on the DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, only on half of the square. I stamped the sentiment from Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in the center of a Basic White panel in Sahara Sand Ink. Using the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set I stamped the sand image in Sahara Sand Ink on the bottom of the Basic White panel. I stamped one of the shells in Blushing Bride Ink and the other in Seaside Spray Ink on top of the sand. I adhered the Basic White panel to the back inside of the card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. Using the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set, I stamped the sand image in Sahara Sand across the bottom front of the envelope. I stamped the seaweed image in Pear Pizzazz Ink, one of the shells in Blushing Bride Ink, the other shell in Seaside Spray Ink and the starfish in Cinnamon Cider Ink. I adhered a panel of Sea & Sand DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ UP! Snailed It 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’ll be at work all weekend, as usual.

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. Here’s my card that I made.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Snailed It Bundle and Snail Mail Designer Series Paper for my card today. It’s such a fun bundle to play with.

I started by adhering a panel of Snail Mail DSP to a Real Red card base using Stampin’ Seal. Using my Paper Trimmer I lined the outside edge of the card at the 3″ mark. I placed the blade at the 3″ mark on the ruler and cut down to the 5/8″ mark. I turned the card base so the bottom is lined up on the trimmer and the side is at the 3″ mark. I place the blade at the 3 5/8″ mark and cut down to the 1 1/4″ mark. I carefully flipped the cut panel around.

I adhered a small panel of Snail Mail DSP to a Bermuda Bay mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the flipped corner using Stampin’ Seal. On a small panel of Bermuda Bay cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up! Snailed It Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the image out using the Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch and adhered it the the corner section using Stampin Dimensionals. I added a Resin Heart Embellishment to the punched image.

I fussy cut the snail from another panel of the Snail Mail DSP and adhered it to the corner of the flip fold using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Punch Party Sale-A-Bration Host Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Family Party Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped one of the snail images from the Snailed It stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Bermuda Bay, Petal Pink and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Snail Mail DSP to the inside of the Real Red card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to the DSP a little off centered so you can’t see it when the card is closed. I cut out 2 mushrooms using the Snail dies, one in Bermuda Bay and one in Real Red cardstocks. I switched the dots on each mushroom and adhered them to the inside panel using Glue Dots.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the snail image from the Snailed It stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Bermuda Bay, Petal Pink and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Snail Mail 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! Dragonfly Garden Wishes 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 thought I was working all weekend, but to my surprise I’m only working 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 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. Here’s my card that I made.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Bundle for my card along with the Dandy Garden 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.

For the card front I started by stamping the dragonfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set on 2 of the corners of a Basic White panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the inside of the wings in Bumblebee Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink a little off centered.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the dandelion image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I also stamped 2 of the bee images from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the bee in using my Mango Melody and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the dandelion center in Bumblebee Ink, stamping off once and colored the leaves in using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using the Dandy Wishes Dies. I fussy cut some of the tiny dragonflies from a panel of Dandy Garden DSP using my Paper Snips.

I adhered the cut out dandelion and bee images to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered a couple of the cut out dragonflies to the card front using Glue Dots. I adhered the card front to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Ladybug Trinket to the leaf of the dandelion using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I adhered 2 panels of the Dandy Garden DSP to both sides of the inside card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut 4 stitched squares out of 2 different panels of Dandy Garden DSP using the Stitched Shapes Dies. I cut 4 scalloped squares out of a panel of Mossy Meadow card stock using the Layering Squares Dies. I adhered 2 of the stitched squares to 2 of the Mossy Meadow scalloped squares using Stampin’ Seal. On the 2 lighter stitched DSP squares I stamped the sentiments from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the stamped DSP stitched squares to the other 2 Mossy Meadow scalloped squares using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a 1″ scored strip of Bumblebee cardstock to the center of the inside card base using Tear & Tape. I adhered the squares to the Bumblebee strip using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden on a small panel of Basic White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the wings in Calypso Coral Ink and cut the dragonfly out using the Dragonfly Punch. I adhered the dragonfly to the darker DSP square using Glue Dots. I adhered the cut out bee to the top of the last square using a Glue Dot. I added a couple more of the tiny fussy cut dragonflies to the darker squares using Glue Dots.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the dandelion from the Garden Wishes stamp set and the dragonfly from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the dragonfly wings in Bumblebee Ink and the center of the dandelion in Bumblebee Ink, stamped off once. I colored the leaves of the dandelion in using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Dandy Garden DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Darling Donkey for Fun Fold Friday

Happy New Year my fellow stampers and welcome to 2021 and my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s New Year’s Eve? Were you able to stay awake to ring the new year in? Here’s to hoping that 2021 will be a wonderful healthy year for all of us.

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. Here’s my card that I made.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Darling Donkey Cling Stamp Set for my card along with the Well Suited Designer Series Paper. The Darling Donkey stamp set will be a FREE set you can earn from Sale-A-Bration with a qualifying order. Sale-A-Bration starts on January 5, 2021.

I started by adhering panels of Well Suited DSP to Pacific Point mats using Stampin’ Seal, then adhering them to the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue. On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the kicking donkey image from the Darling Donkey stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Gray Granite and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the donkey using my Paper Snips.

I embossed a small panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder. Using my new Blending Brushes, I added some Gray Granite Ink to the panel. I adhered the embossed panel to a Pacific Point mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the donkey to the top of the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On another small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiments from the Darling Donkey stamp set and the Stampin’ Up! Zany Zebras Cling Stamp Set. I added a little Gray Granite Ink around the edges using my Blending Brush and adhered it to a Pacific Point mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment to the top right side of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the donkey to the bottom left side of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Matte Black Dots to the sentiment panel.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the sitting donkey from the Darling Donkey stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Gray Granite and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Wisper White panel to a Pacific Point mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the kicking donkey from the Darling Donkey stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored him in using my Gray Granite and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Well Suited DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you liked my card. Items will be available in just 4 short days on January 5, 2021. 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! Snowman Season Birthday for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? I can’t believe that Christmas is just 1 week away. I’ve mailed my cards and I’ve got my cookie batters mixed and by the time you read this I will have probably baked off a few of them. Shopping and wrapping is another story. I’ll get it done, I hope.

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. Here’s my card that I made.

I used the Stampin’ Up Snowman Season Photopolymer Stamp Set from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog and the Stampin’ Up! Approaching Perfection Cling Stamp Set from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog coming January 5, 2021. I played along with Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge #260. The theme is ‘Snowman/Men’.

I started by adhering a panel of the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of the Misty Moonlight 1/4″ 2020-2022 In-Color Ribbon around the card front and tied a knot. I added a Glue Dot to hold the knot in place.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the snowman image from the Snowman Season stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink. I colored the nose, scarf and hat in using my Just Jade, Misty Moonlight and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the Approaching Perfection stamp set on the top of the panel in Misty Moonlight Ink. I adhered the artwork to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the overlapping card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added some Adhesive-
Backed Snowflakes
where the stamped snowflakes are. I adhered the small card front to the back of the card base, centering in, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Approaching Perfection stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped another one of the snowman images from the Snowman Season stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, over the small card base tab.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the small snowman image from the Snowman Season stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Snowflake Splendor 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.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here. Happy Stamping!!

WHISPER WHITE CARDSTOCK PRODUCTS- AVAILABLE WHILE SUPPLIES LAST

Stampin’ Up! announced this information related to the Whisper White paper products late last evening:

Whisper White has been a Stampin’ Up! staple for so long. We love it and we know you love it, too. We are sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing our Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, we weren’t given much notice on this closure. This means that the technology unique to this particular supplier is now unavailable to us and we can no longer offer our Whisper White cardstock and related products, such as Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. Please note that this won’t affect any of our other cardstocks, this only affects Whisper White.

We know Whisper White has a huge fan base; we’re big fans, too! And we are crushed that it’s going away. Even though this decision was out of our hands, rest assured that we jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. We have dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the Stampin’ Up! quality you know and trust. We are happy to share that we have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White!

The quality of our new Basic White was thoroughly tested by our quality assurance and product teams. It also tested very well with demonstrators and concept artists who gave it a huge thumbs up. We believe in the quality of the new Basic White cardstock and we know it will become your new crafting staple!

What does this mean for you?

With Whisper White going out of production, this means a number of Whisper White products will be affected. Below is a list of all products that will be replaced with our new Basic White cardstock. These items are now available while supplies last with an order limit of 2 per item per order.

  • Whisper White 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Cardstock (124302)
  • Assorted Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (149710)
  • Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes (131527)
  • Whisper White 3″ x 3″ (7.6 x 7.6 cm) Envelopes (145829)
  • Whisper White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Cardstock (100730)
  • Whisper White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Thick Cardstock (140272)
  • Whisper White Medium Envelopes (107301)

Our new Basic White products will become available to purchase as soon as we have them in stock. This means that some Whisper White and Basic White products may be available at the same time. Additionally, due to the nature of sourcing, some Basic White products may not be available before the Whisper White products sell out. Please know that we are working on getting these products available to you as fast as possible.

Stampin’ Up! Warm and Toasty for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you all ready for the weekend? I’m not sure, but I think my husband might be going to cut our tree. I’ll be working all weekend I believe.

I thought I was done making my Christmas cards and my husband asked me to make a card for his department to give their supervisor. 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. Here’s my card that I made. I used a few stamp set for my card, but the main set I used was the Stampin’ Up! Warm & Toasty Cling Stamp Set.

I played along with The Spot Challenge #140. Their theme is Holiday Throwdown (Over the Top Holiday Cards).

I started by adhering 8 panels of the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper to the front and back of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from Warm & Toasty stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Snowflake Splendor DSP. I adhered the DSP to a Whisper White mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the center of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped 4 of the animal images from the Warm & Toasty stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock. I colored the images in using my Balmy Blue, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Ivory, Just Jade, Real Red, Smoky Slate and Color Lifter Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut all the images using my Paper Snips. Using the Pine Woods Dies, I cut 3 of the snow drift dies from a panel of Whisper White cardstock.

I adhered a strip of Silver Foil sheet to the top snow drift using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the snow drifts together using Glue Dots on the bottom 2 and Stampin’ Dimensionals on the top one. I stamped the snow image in Balmy Blue Ink on the drifts to give them a little dimension. I adhered the snow drifts to the card base using Tear & Tape on the top section and Stampin’ Dimensionals on the bottom.

I adhered the cut images to the card front and snow using Stampin’ Dimensionals. After I added them I felt like the inside still needed a little something, so I added a tall pine tree I had cut from a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock using the Pine Woods Dies. I also stamped the tree cluster image from the Stampin’ Up! In The Pines Photopolymer Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the Pine Woods Dies. I adhered the tall pine tree using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the tree cluster using Glue Dots.

This is how the card looks when it is sitting on a table, so you can see how it is folded.

On a Whisper White panel I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Christmas Cling Stamp Set the the Stampin’ Up! From All Of Us Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink towards the top. I adhered the Whisper white panel to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin Seal and then adhered it to the back of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped 2 of the small tree images from the In The Pines stamp set in Just Jade Ink and cut them out using the Pine Woods Dies. I adhered them to the side panels using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the small tree images from the In The Pines stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the bottom front of the envelope. I adhered a panel of Snowflake Splendor 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! Monogram Messages for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend. I’m working tomorrow, but Sunday we have our ‘In Person, Virtually’ team meeting. Even virtually I love getting together with everyone and stamping. We have such a great team and the best team leader you’d ever want.

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. Here’s my card that I made.

I pulled out a couple set from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog for my card today. The Stampin’ Up! Monogram Messages Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays Cling Stamp Set.

I stamped the ‘C’ from the Monogram Messages stamp set in Versamark Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock. I immediately sprinkled it with my Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I stamped the sentiment from the Monogram Messages stamp set right next to the ‘C’ in Gorgeous Grape Ink.

I stamped the sprig image from the Monogram Messages stamp set in Highland Heather Ink next to the ‘C’. I stamped the leaf image from the Monogram Messages stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink next to the sprig. I stamped the flower image from the Monogram Messages stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I adhered the flower to the ‘C’ using a Glue Dot. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Silver Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the front of a small Pear Pizzazz card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

I embossed a small panel of Highland Heather cardstock using the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder and adhered it to the Soft Seafoam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I adhered a panel of the Feels Like Frost 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the inside of the Soft Seafoam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set in Gorgeous Grape Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the leaf image from the Monogram Messages stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on either side of the sentiment. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Pear Pizzazz card base to the inside of the Soft Seafoam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the sprig image from the Monogram Messages stamp set in Highland Heather Ink and the leaf image in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Feels Like Frost 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! Poinsettia Petals For Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Did you all have a nice Thanksgiving? How many of you ended up in a food coma after eating your dinner? We had a very nice quiet one here. Once everything was done, I started pulling some boxes out of the attic of our Christmas decorations. It’s been a tradition for years that the weekend after Thanksgiving Christmas explodes in my house. The past couple years it’s taken more that just the weekend to decorate with my work schedule. This year I have the advantage that I don’t have to undecorate and clean before decorating since we just cleaned and put all our furniture back in our house. I’ll see how much I get done between today and tomorrow.

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. Here’s my card that I made.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Bundle for today’s Fun Fold Card.

I started by adhering a panel of Poinsettia Place DSP to an Old Olive mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted DSP to the Petal Pink card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front just under the 1″ top of the card base using Tear & Tape.

On a panel of Shimmery White cardstock I stamped the poinsettia image from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the medium poinsettia layered image from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set on the Shimmer White cardstock twice in Soft Suede Ink. I colored the poinsettia image in using my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I then used my Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter to remove some of the color so that it had a very light color. I colored the leave in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut all the images out using my Poinsettia Dies. I snipped the leaves apart using my Paper Snips. I adhered the leaves under the flower image using Glue Dots.

I wrapped a piece of 3/8″ Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon around the top of the card front and tied a knot. On a strip of Shimmery White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the flower to the right of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Beaded Pearl embellishment to the flower center using a Glue Dot. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I adhered a panel of Poinsettia Place DSP to an Old Olive mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from Poinsettia Petals stamp set in the center of a panel of Shimmery White cardstock in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the poinsettia flower from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set over the sentiment in Petal Pink Ink, stamping off once. I adhered the Shimmery White panel to the inside of the Petal Pink card base in the center of the DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the poinsettia flower from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front. I colored the flower in using my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I masked the flower and stamped the leaves from the medium layered poinsettia from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I colored the leave in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Poinsettia Place 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! Enjoy The Moment Sneak Peek for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s week? The weekend is upon us, does anyone have any plans? Besides trying to get my house back in order, I’ll be at work all weekend. We will finally be able to walk on our new floors today, but only with socks, no shoes. I’ll be happy to be able to sleep in my own bed tonight. The hotel was fine, but it’s not home. We probably won’t move our furniture back into the house until next week. My husband has a lot of painting to do now and he has to replace a lot of the molding. We figured it would be a lot easier to do without any furniture in place. I can’t wait till it’s all done and everything can be put back in place.

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. You won’t be able to make the exact card unless you were able to purchase this set already. The stamp set will be available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog and the DSP I used is a free item from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog. Here’s my card that I made.

For my Fun Fold card I used the Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment Cling Stamp Set that will be available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog on January 5, 2021. I also used the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper that can be earned free with a qualifying order from Sale-A-Bration starting January 5, 2021.

This is the template for cutting your Drapery Fold card.

I started by cutting and folding the Flower & Field DSP as in the template above. I added a couple Glue Dots in between the folds to hold them in place.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I trimmed the folded DSP to 5 1/4″ and adhered it to the Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of the Just Jade 1/4″ 2020-2022 In-Color Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Just Jade 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 Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the flourish image from Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamping off once, on either side of the sentiment. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Just Jade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the flourish image from the Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Just Jade Ink, stamping off once, across the bottom front of the envelope. I adhered a panel of the Flower & Field 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. The stamp set for my card today will be available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog on January 5, 2021. The DSP can be earned free with a qualifying order from Sale-A-Bration starting January 5, 2021. If you are one of my customers and have placed an order this past year, I will be sending you a catalog as soon as they are available. If you need a catalog and would like me to be your demonstrator, please drop me a line and I will be more that happy to get one out to you as soon as I can.

Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Sneak Peek for my Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? I hope you all had a productive one. Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be working all day tomorrow. It’s been a rainy few days here but of course it’s suppose to be sunny tomorrow.

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. You won’t be able to make the exact card unless you were able to purchase these set already. Both stamp sets and the DSP will be available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Here’s the card that I made.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Cling Stamp Set to make my card today.

I started by lightly adhering a panel of the Dandy Garden 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Bumblebee card base using a tiny amount of Stampin’ Seal just on 2 of the corners to hold it in place. I cut the center out using the 2nd largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I set the pieces to the side and adhered the Dandy Garden DSP to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I tied a piece of the Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In-Color 1/4″ Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow. I added a Glue Dot under the bow to hold it in place.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the dandelion image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I stamped the flower center image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Bumblebee Ink, stamping off once, in the center of the dandelion. I colored the stem and leave in using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the 3rd largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered the artwork to the Bumblebee mat (which I cut out from the card base earlier), using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a panel of Dandy Garden DSP to the inner card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then adhered the matted artwork to it using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a couple of the Ladybug Trinkets to the artwork using Glue Dots.

On the inside Z-Fold card I stamped the wild flower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Garden Wishes stamp set in the center of the Whisper White panel I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the top and bottom corners of the panel, masking it with a Post-It note so that I didn’t get ink on the side panel. I colored the flowers in using my Calypso Coral and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the inner card base to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the dandelion image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the flower center image from the Garden Wishes stamp set in bumblebee Ink, stamping off once, in the center of the dandelion. I colored the leaves and stem in using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the dragonfly image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Dandy Garden 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. The stamp sets and DSP for my project today will be available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog on January 5, 2021.
