Stampin’ Up Blue Wild Rose for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is upon us, have you made any plans yet?  Today we’re off to Epcot after a quick stop at Hollywood Studios again. The new Star Wars – Rise of the Resistance ride broke right when we got on yesterday (after waiting 9 hours for our que and over an hour on line).  We were rushed on to a ship, flown into space and taken by the Storm Troopers and it broke 😦   They gave us a ticket to go back to Hollywood Studios today and Fast Pass to go back on that ride.  I thought it was going to be a laid back day walking around Epcot, but plans have changed.  I’m sure I’ll be getting another 10 miles+ of walking in again.  My son wants to bring my daughter drinking around the world at Epcot,  guess I’m going to be the designated one to get everyone back to the hotel safely.  My daughter turned 21 last May and does not drink, this should be interesting.  I know we have Mission Space and Test Track on the agenda at Epcot for today.  My husband hasn’t mentioned Soaring yet.  That one got me a little nauseous last time we were here.  We’ll see what happens, just give me the Dramamine.

I have another new to me Overlay Fun Fold for you today using the beautiful Stampin’ Up To A Wild Rose Bundle.  I saw this card done by Lisa Curcio and thought I would CASE it. Here’s my card.

I started by scoring and folding a Seaside Spray card base.  The card base is 5 1/4″ X 5 1/2″  You need to score it so that you have a 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″ card base.  I embossed a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the 4″ X 4″ Seaside Spray panel under the fold of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, lining up the bottom edges.  I adhered the embossed Crumb Cake panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a 5″ X 4 1/2″ panel of Shimmery White cardstock I stamped the outlined rose image once and the outlined leaf image3 times from the Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the rose image in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the leaf images in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using my Wild Rose Dies.

I adhered the rose to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the leaves under the rose using Glue Dots.  I wrapped a piece of Seaside Spray 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon around the top of the card front and tied a square knot.  I’m not sure if I am going to use this card for Birthday, Mother’s Day, or any other occasion, so I didn’t put a sentiment on the front panel yet.  Once I decide I will stamp and punch a sentiment and adhere it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the outlined rose image from To A Wild Rose stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink, stamping off once, to the center of a Shimmery White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Strong & Beautiful Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the rose image.  I adhered the Shimmery White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Snail and then 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 outlined rose image from the To A Wild Rose stamp set on the envelope front.  I stamped the fill image from To A Wild Rose stamp set over the outlined image in Seaside Spray Ink, stamping off once.  I stamped the detail fill image from To A Wild Rose stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink over the other image.  I adhered a panel of the Seaside Spray 2019-2021 In-Color Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my fun fold card and will give it a try.  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  we’ll be spending it at Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios again.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Tea Together

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started off?

I have 1 last Mother’s Day card for you today.   Here’s my card.

I played along with the Stampin’ Up Only Challenge #222. Their theme was “Celebration”. I thought Mother’s Day fit in perfectly.

I also played along with Always Fun Challenge #109.  Their theme was “Female or Mom”.

I started with a Soft Sea Foam card front and ran it through my Big Shot using the Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (available June 4th).   I adhered the embossed card front to a Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Teapot and Tea Cup images from the Stampin’ Up Tea Together Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the large rose image on the teapot and the rosebud image on the teacup from the same stamp set.  I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using my Tea Time Framelits Dies (available June 4th).  I cut an oval out from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies from Whisper White cardstock and stamped the sentiment from the Tea Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top of the oval.  I cut out a scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies in Daffodil Delight cardstock as mat to my stitched oval.

I adhered the stitched oval to the scalloped oval using Snail and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Teapot and the Tea Cup to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels which I colored with my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend Marker to the stitched oval.

On the inside I did something a little different.  I made a frame using my Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies in Daffodil Delight cardstock.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tea-cup image from the Tea Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the rosebuds from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink also stamping off once.  I colored the image in using my light Daffodil Delight and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the tea-cup.  I adhered the Whisper White panel under the stitched frame using Snail and adhered the framed image to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tea-cup image from the Tea Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the rosebuds from the same stamp set on the tea-cup and I stamped the large rose image on the envelope flap.  I colored everything in the same as I did for the card.

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

Stampin’ Up All That You Are Strong and Beautiful

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Mine was very wet and soggy.  It rained all weekend.  Did anyone do anything fun?

For today I have another Mother’s Day card for you.  I really need to get all my cards in the mail, today!!  Here’s my card.

I’ve joined in with 3 challenges today.  First is the Fab Friday color challenge #162.  Here are their gorgeous colors I got to work with.

Next I joined in with Aud Sentiments Challenge #226.  Their challenge theme was to Make a Feminine Project and An Appropriate Sentiment.

I also joined in with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  Here’s their theme.

I started with a panel of Tropical Escape 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper (retiring June 3rd) and adhered it to a Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the large image from the Stampin’ Up All That You Are Stamp Set on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock in Soft Suede Ink.  This stamp set will be retiring on June 3rd.  I love this image, it’s perfect to color.  I colored the image in using my Petal Pink, Pool Party and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Strong and Beautiful Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a strip of the Tropical Escapes 6 X 6 DSP.

I adhered the artwork, with Snail, to a panel of Pool Party mat which I ran through my Big Shot with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered a bow made from the Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon (also retiring June 3rd) to the stem of the stamped image with a Glue Dot.  I adhered the stamped strip of DSP to the top of the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the flower image from the All That You Are stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the corners of a Very Vanilla Panel.  Masking the flowers I stamped the stem image from the same stamp set in Pool Party Ink around the flowers.  I colored the flowers in using my Petal Pink and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Strong and Beautiful stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of the Very Vanilla panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the flowers from the All That You Are stamp set on the envelope front and colored them in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a piece of Tropical Escapes 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Don’t forget if you liked the stamp set, DSP or ribbon that I used for my card, they will all be retiring as of June 3rd.  Grab them while you can.

Stampin’ Up Tea Together Easel Stand Up Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week been?  The weekend is right around the bend, are you making any plans?

For today I have a fun fold card for you.  I got the idea from Rachael Rife @ rachthestamper,  but it looks as if the original idea came from Pootles Papercraft aka Sam Hammond.  This was the last of 4 cards we made at my Stamp Camp Tuesday night.  It looks a lot harder than it is.  I had a brand new stamper there and she made it no problem.  Here’s my card.

I started with an 8″ X 8″ panel of Petal Pink cardstock for my card base.  I scored it at 4″ then turned it and scored at 4″ again.  I then cut from the center down one side only.  On the top portion that was not cut I scored from the outside edge to the center top edge for the angle fold.  Using my Bone Folder I gave it a good crease on all the score lines.  The 2 straight ones I folded in and the 2 angle ones I folded out.

I cut 2 pieces of Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper into 3 3/4″ squares.  One of the pieces of DSP I cut in half to make 2 triangles for the outside folds.  I adhered the marbled piece of DSP to the bottom part where the easel was going to sit using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the 2 triangle pieces of DSP to the outside folded pieces using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I took a 3″ X 6″ piece of Petal Pink cardstock and folded it in half.  Using the 3rd largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circle Framelits Dies, I cut it out not putting the full circle on my paper, letting it hang over the folded edge about 1/4″ so that it would open up like a card.  I folded the top of the scallop circle up and in half meeting the little scallops to make the easel.  I cut another of the same size scallop circle from a piece of the Petal Promenade DSP and adhered it to the top section of the scallop circle.  Using the 2nd smallest scallop circle from the Layering Circle Framelits Dies I cut a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock to make the easel stopper.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the teacup image, the sentiment in the teacup and the large rose image from the Stampin’ Up Tea Together Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink.  I colored them in using the Petal Pink and Light Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images using the Tea Time Framelits Dies and my Big Shot.  I adhered the teacup to the scalloped circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the rose to the small Mossy Meadow scalloped circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Mossy Meadow scalloped circle to the Petal Pink scalloped circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals placing it where I wanted the easel to stand open.  I adhered the easel piece to the center of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the teacup image from the Tea Together stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in the center of the teacup in Smoky Slate Ink.  I colored the teacup in using my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the card base, under the easel panel, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the teacup and the rosebud from the Tea Together stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Petal Pink and Light Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a piece of the Petal Promenade DSP to the envelope flap.

Here you can see that the card folds up nicely to fit into the Medium Envelopes, but it will need extra postage.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  If you have any questions on how to make this card, please feel free to email me and I will try to explain it better.  I didn’t realize until I started typing how difficult it is to explain step by step what I did.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Tea Together Mother’s Day

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?

For today’s card I made another Mother’s Day card for you, trying to focus on clean and simple (well as simple as I get).  I tried to let the Designer Series Paper do most of the work for me.  Here’s my card.

I was able to join in with 2 challenges with my card today also.  I’ve said before that I love doing challenges.  They give me a starting point when I’m having crafters block. First is the Festive Friday Challenge #0032.  I was able to do both, Mother’s Day and Pink.  Here is their challenge.

Next is The Flower Challenge #31  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper to a Powder Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I then adhered a panel of Petal Pink cardstock and a smaller panel of Petal Promenade DSP to the left side of the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Tea Together Stamp Set in Fresh Fig Ink on the panel of DSP.

On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped 3 of the flower images from the Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely Stamp Set in Powder Pink Ink.  I stamped the leaves from the same stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I fussy cut all the images using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the flowers and leaves to the card front using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from Forever Lovely stamp set in Fresh Fig Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flowers and leaves from the same stamp set multiple times in Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide Inks.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Powder Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower and leaves from the Forever Lovely stamp set in Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide Inks on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of the Petal Promenade 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.  Don’t miss out on these 2017-2019 In-Colors.  Once they are gone they’re gone.  I used 3 of the retiring In-Colors for my card today.  This beautiful Petal Promenade DSP will be retiring in June too.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Apron Of Love Soon To Be Retired Set

Happy Earth Day my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did you have a nice Easter?  I was very thankful to have my daughter, niece and nephew over to help me with the cooking.  I’m finding it to be a bit of a nuisance to work with just one arm, especially when putting food in and out of the oven.  They were wonderful and so much help, I am so lucky to have them.

For today’s card I’m using another set that will be retiring on June 3rd.  It’s the Stampin’ Up Apron Of Love Stamp Set.    Here’s my card.

I was also able to join in with a couple challenges with my card.  I played along with Fab Friday sketch challenge #161.  Here’s their sketch

I also joined in with the Color Throwdown color challenge #539.  Here are their colors.

I started by doing all my cutting so that I would have everything ready.  Using my Big Shot I cut the apron, bow, flowers, pocket, ruffle and strings out from the Apron Builder Die out of Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point and Whisper White cardstock.  I then cut the Mango Melody frame using the largest and 3rd largest or the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I cut Daffodil Delight and Whisper White squares from the Stitched Shapes Dies using the smallest square.  Then it was time to start assembling.

I started by arranging the squares to look like a tile floor then adhered the Mango Melody Frame to the top of the squares using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered it to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue.  I adhered the strings to the back of the apron using Glue Dots, the flowers to the front of the apron using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the bow to the pocket using a Glue Dot and the pocket to the ruffle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the pocket to the apron using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the apron to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Apron Of Love stamp set on a piece of Vellum cardstock in Pacific Point Ink and made a banner out of it.  I adhered the banner to the bottom of the card front using Glue Dots.

On the inside I stamped the apron from the Apron Of Love stamp set in Pacific Point Ink on a Whisper White panel stamping it off once.  I stamped the utensils from the same stamp set in Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody Inks on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Stamp Set in Pacific Point Ink in the center of the apron.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mango Melody mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the utensils from the Apron Of Love stamp set in Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody Inks across the bottom to the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of the Brights 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  If you are liking this set, I’d grab it before it’s too late.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up April Paper Pumpkin

Goods Friday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s week?   I’ve had an interesting couple of days.  For some of you that know me, I had to have shoulder surgery Wednesday.  Last June I tore my rotator cuff and the surgeon said he had to do a lot of repairing of my biceps.  I’ve been with one arm for the past few months waiting till I could make an appointment to get it repaired.   With that being said, I am 1 armed right now in a sling and all bandaged up.  I’m typing with one hand, luckily I’m a pretty good typist and I made all these cards with one hand.  The most challenging part was trying to make bows, but I was determined and I did it.  I’m the type of person that nothing will stop me.  I’m very determined and stubborn and I won’t let anything get me down.   I was determined to have a card ready to blog for you for today and I not only made 1, but I made 9 along with a case to hold them.  It’s the April Paper Pumpkin Kit.  Take a look.

I don’t really have my normal step by step instructions for you, but I have the pictures of all the cards inside and out.

After I made all the cards I made the box that came with the kit for the cards to go in.  The Stampin’ Up Paper Pumpkin Kits come with everything you need.  Of course I had to add some extras, because that’s what I do.  Your 1st kit comes with a clear block and you use that block for all future sets.  Everything comes cut for you, all adhesives are included.  Each kit comes with a new stamp set, ink spot, envelopes, embellishments and step by step instructions.  These kits are great for on the go.  They are perfect for new stampers that want to get their feet wet without investing in too much to see if they like stamping (but who doesn’t like creating beautiful cards).

A couple of them I followed the instructions, but again those who know me know I do my own thing.  I never have 2 cards exactly the same.  I’ve never liked duplicating cards.  Even when I make my Christmas cards, if I’m sending out 50, it’s 50 different cards.

I added sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Strong & Beautiful Stamp Set to the Mother’s Day cards.

I made a couple of them into birthday cards.

And stamped the inside with sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set.

I made a couple of them into thank you cards.

And stamped the inside with sentiments from the Stampin’ Up A Big Thank You Stamp Set.

The last ones I made into thinking of you and best wishes.

And stamped the insides with sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Stamp Set.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  This just goes to show that even someone with only 1 arm can make cards.  I did cut liners for the inside of each card and it was easier than I thought it would be.  I hope you liked my cards and would consider subscribing to the Paper Pumpkin.  If you are interested in subscribing, click here.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and those who celebrate, have a Blessed Easter.  Happy Stamping!!
