Stampin’ Up! Toile Christmastime is Here For Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Is anyone making plans for the weekend?  I’ll be at work, but today I’m heading to the Philadelphia Zoo for the day.  It’s suppose to be sunny but cold, I believe only in the 40’s.  Hoping the cool weather brings out the animals.

For today’s card I’ve been wanting to make this one for a while, but I needed to figure out how.  This card for sure will be one that I hand to someone and not mail.  Here’s my card.

The colors of my card were inspired by Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #367. Here are their colors.

I started by cutting all the panels for the card and cutting and scoring the card base.  You need a 12″ X 12″ piece of cardstock for this card.  I took a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and scored it at 1/4″, 3 3/4″ and 7 1/4″ using my Paper Trimmer.  I turned the paper in the trimmer so that the 1/4″ side was against the bottom edge.  I lined the paper up at the 5/8″ mark and scored from the end to the 7 1/4″ score line.  I cut that piece off and folded the card like an accordion on the score lines.

On the 1/4″ fold I adhered the small Cherry Cobbler panel using Tear ‘n Tape.  I set the card base on the side so that I could work on all the panels.

For the front panel I stamped the branch image from the Stampin’ Up! Toile Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on one of the small Whisper White panels.  I colored the branch in using my Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the cardinal image from the Toile Christmas stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the cardinal in using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut it out using the Christmas Cardinal Dies.  I adhered the cardinal to the Whisper White panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a panel of the Christmastime Is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper to each of the 4 panels of Whisper White cardstock using Snail.  On the smallest panel I stamped the branch image from the Toile Christmas stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in using my Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  On the other 3 panels I stamped sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Greatest Part of Christmas Host Cling Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow Inks.  I adhered each of the Whisper White panels to Mossy Meadow mats using Snail and then to the Cherry Cobbler card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of the 1/4″ Gold Shimmer Ribbon around the  card base in the middle and tied a bow.  I added some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the panels.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the cardinal from the Toile Christmas stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the cardinal in using my Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Christmastime Is Here Specialty 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.  This was definitely not a quick and easy card today.  Once everything was cut and I decided on the DSP and sentiments I wanted to use, it did go together pretty quickly. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Christmastime Is Here For My Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s Halloween?  Ours was very wet and sad.  In nice weather we don’t get a lot of Trick or Treaters, so the rain made it empty.  My little nephew’s parades were cancelled so I didn’t even get to see them.

HAPPY NOVEMBER!!!!  Before I get started with today’s card, does everyone know what today is, other than November 1st?  Today’s the day you can purchase Christmastime Is Here Suite!!  You can purchase individual items or the whole suite.  You can also purchase the new awesome Paper Trimmer.  I just got mine and it’s fantastic.  Click Here to go to my Online Store to see how to order.

For today’s card I’ve used the gorgeous new Christmastime Is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper for my fun fold.  I wish pictures could show you how absolutely beautiful this paper is.  Here’s my card.

I started with a panel of Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP and scored it on the 10″ side at 1″, 1 1/2″, 2 1/2″, 3″, 4″, 4 1/2″, 5 1/2″, 6″, 7″, 7 1/2″, 8 1/2″ and 9″.  I then made a little mark on the 10″ side at 4 1/2″ & 5 1/2″ on both the top and bottom.  I turned the paper to the 5 3/8″ side and made a mark at 2 3/16″ & 3 3/16″ on both the top and bottom.  I cut from the 5 3/8″ side to the 10″ side to the little marks.  The paper looked like this when I was done.

I wanted the floral side out so I made the 1st fold on the end down and continued folding it like an accordion from both sides.  I adhered the pleated fold to a Cherry Cobbler card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue down the center back.

I wrapped a piece of the beautiful new 1/4″ Gold Shimmer Ribbon around the center of the pleats and adhered it in the back using a little Snail.  On a small piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Many Stars Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a scalloped oval out of Mossy Meadow cardstock using my Layering Ovals Dies.  I was going to cut out a gold scalloped oval, but I wasn’t happy with how it looked next to the ribbon.

I adhered the sentiment oval to the scalloped oval using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a small bow made from the 1/4″ Gold Shimmer Ribbon using a Glue Dot to the side of the sentiment.  I added a few of the new Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.  I adhered the card front to a Mossy Meadow card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the So Many Stars stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered 2 strips of the Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP to either side of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP to the envelope flap and a strip of the DSP to the front of the envelope.

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

Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Frost Merry Christmas for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is upon us once again, have we made any plans?  Another weekend I will be working.

Today I used the gorgeous Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper to do most of the work for my card.  I also pulled out a stamp set and dies from the Annual Catalog.  Take a look.

Isn’t this paper stunning?  I started by embossing a Purple Posy card base using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I also embossed the band across the front of the card using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered a panel of the Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP to my thin Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the band to the back of the card base, so that it wrapped around the front, using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White card base to the Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered 2 thin strips of the Feels Like Frost Specialty DSP to either side of the thin card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the Christmas sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Merry Christmas To All Photopolymer Stamp Set on the bottom front of the DSP in Smoky Slate Ink.

I cut the Merry sentiment out of Silver Foil Sheet using the Merry Christmas Dies and adhered it to the band using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front to add a little more sparkle.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the scroll images from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set in Purple Posy Ink on the envelope front and the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Lots of Cheer for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How has everyone’s week been?  Have you made plans for the weekend yet?  Other than working, I’m not sure what I will be doing.

I figured it was time to get started on my Christmas cards, so you’ll be seeing a lot of Christmas/Holiday cards in the next few weeks.  Here’s today’s card.

I started by folding a Night of Navy card base at 4 1/4″ & 1 3/4″.  I adhered a panel of Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Gold Foil Sheet panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted DSP to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped a piece of the 3/8″ Shaded Spruce/Gold Striped Ribbon around the card base and tied a bow.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the boxed snowman image from the Stampin’ Up! Lots of Cheer Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock using the largest scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Dies and adhered the artwork to it using Snail.  On the thin part of the Night of Navy card front I stamped the sentiment from the Lots of Cheer stamp set in Versamark Ink on an angle.  I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the matted oval artwork to the folded edge of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the left half of the oval.  I added a few Real Red Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots.

On the inside I stamped the snowman image from the Lots of Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock stamping off 3 times.  I stamped the sentiment from the Lots of Cheer stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on top of the snowman image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base on top of the Wrapped in Plaid DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the boxed snowman image from the Lots of Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in with my Stampin’ Blends Markers the same as I did for the card front artwork.  I adhered a panel of Wrapped in Plaid 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! Path of Petals for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Hope it was a productive one.  I had off yesterday and I went non stop from early morning till late at night getting things done.  I did some of my fall cleaning and decorating, washed windows and changed curtains.  I even had some time to make a card for today.

I have a really quick and easy fun fold card for you today.  I’m not quite sure what the name of today’s fun fold card is.  I want to call it a corner fold card.  Take a look.

I started with a Rococo Rose card base which is 4 1/4″ X 11″.  I scored at the 5 1/2″ and then made a little mark 1 1/4″ from the score line on the front of the card.  I scored from that mark to the bottom right corner and folded the corner to the front.  To give it a little texture, I embossed the card front using my Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.

Using the largest scallop square from my Layering Squares Dies, I cut the Pear Pizzazz panel.  I took the 2nd largest square from the Layering Squares Dies and cut my Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper out.  Using my Stampin’ Sponge, I sponged the edges of the Pear Pizzazz scallop square with Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I adhered the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP panel to the scallop square using Snail.  Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, I adhered the Mossy Meadow panel to the card base lining up the corners of the square with the fold line.  I adhered the matted DSP to the Mossy Meadow panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink.  I made the strip into a banner and sponged the edges with Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I adhered the banner under the scallop square using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Path of Petals stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the side of the panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Rococo Rose card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I stamped the flower image from the Path of Petals stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on the leaf image.  I adhered a panel of Pressed Petals Specialty 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! Everything Amazing for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Are you ready for the weekend?  It’s here ready or not.  Is anyone making any plans?  Tomorrow is World Card Making Day, I hope you will be able to join my team in watching our Facebook Live videos.  They will be starting at 9am and continue until 9pm.  The link is below how to join or find us.

For today’s card I have a gate fold that I turned.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #324.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering 2 panels of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to Pretty Peacock mats using Snail.  I adhered both panels to the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large image from the Stampin’ Up! Everything Amazing Photopolymer Stamp Set in Terracotta Tile Ink.  I stamped the 2 smaller sentiment from the Everything Amazing stamp set in Grapefruit Grove Ink on the larger image.  I adhered the artwork panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail.  I cut leaves out using the Seasonal Layers Dies in Grapefruit Grove, Mint Macaron, Pretty Peacock and Terracotta Tile cardstocks.  I adhered the leaves to the artwork back and front using Glue Dots.  I added a couple 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dots to the artwork.

I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only to the left half of the panel.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Stamp Set in Terracotta Tile Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Grapefruit Grove Ink, stamping off once, on either side of the sentient and over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I finished my card by decorating a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Colorful Seasons stamp set in Grapefruit Grove and Terracotta Tile Ink across the bottom of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Come To Gather DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Please don’t forget to hop on and watch us on our Facebook Lives videos tomorrow.  I will be going live at 4pm.  Happy Stamping!!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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