Stampin’ Up! Christmas Banners Fun Fold Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Has anyone made any plans for the long weekend yet? I’ll be working all day tomorrow and Sunday.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here is my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Banners Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Banners Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Brightest Glow Cling Stamp Set and the Lights Aglow 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Banners Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by embossing a panel of Brushed Metallic Paper using the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder. For anyone that watched my video and wanted the Snowflakes, check out my Instagram Reel. I made one with the snowflake embossing folder. I cut a panel of Lights Aglow DSP on the right side in the center at the 2 5/8″, I cut in 2″. I scored from the bottom right corner to the 2″ mark and from the top right corner to the 2″ mark.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Banners Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I folded the 2 corners on the score lines. I adhered the folded DSP panel to the Brushed Metallic embossed panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to an Evening Evergreen card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the banner image from the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Banners Photopolymer Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Banners stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I cut the banner out using the Christmas Banner Dies. I adhered the banner to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Banners Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

From panels of Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent and Brushed Metallic cardstocks, I cut the berries, branches, pine boughs and sprigs using the Christmas Banner Dies. I arranged the die cut pieces under the banner the way I liked them using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Festive Pearls to the banner.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Banners Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Brightest Glow stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the pine bough and sprig images from the Christmas Banners stamp set in Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent Ink around the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the pine bough and sprig images from the Christmas Banners stamp set on the envelope front in Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent Inks. I adhered a panel of Lights Aglow DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Has anyone made any plans for the long weekend yet? I’ll be working all day tomorrow, but only half day Sunday, so I’ll get most of the day to do something.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here is my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Bundle along with the Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper for my card today. This bundle will only be available until September 30, 2022. The stamp set is in the July -December 2022 Mini Catalog, but you will really want the dies to go with it. There are 25 dies in the pack and it’s an awesome pack of dies that you will absolutely love to have with the stamp set. Grab it while it’s available as a bundle and save yourself 10%.

I played along with the Creative Creases Challenge #41.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by stamping the apples on the branch image from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic Whtie cardstock. I cut the image using the Apple Blossoms Dies. I cut 7 of the small flowers dies from the Apple Blossoms Dies from the same panel of Basic White cardstock. I colored the image in using my Grann Apple Green, Poppy Parade, Soft Suede and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. Using the Apple Blossom Dies I cut 8 of the flower centers from a panel of Flirty Flamingo cardstock, 10 leaves from a panel of Granny Apple Green cardstock and 2 branches from a panel of Soft Suede Cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

Using the 3rd largest Deckled Rectangle Die I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the small background image from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Poppy Parade Ink a few times where I was going to adhere the dies. I adhered the large colored die using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the leaves to the branches using tiny drops of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the branches just under the apple branch image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flower centers to the flowers using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the flowers to the branches using Glue Dots. I adhered the artwork to a Poppy Parade mat.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to a Poppy Parade Mat. I adhered the layered panel to the Basic Whtie card front. I adhered the layered artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out using the Apple Blossoms Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

I scored the Basic White Thick card base at 1 3/8″ & 2 3/4″ flipped the panel over and scored at 1 3/8″ & 2 3/4″ on the other end. I folded the 2 3/4″ score lines in and folded the 1 3/8″ score lines out. I adhered a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to a Poppy Parade mat. I adhered the layered panel to the right folded panel. I adhered the layered card front to the left folded panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On the inside, I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the apple image from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image using the Granny Apple Green, Poppy Parade, Soft Suede and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Poppy Parade mat, then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

I colored the image using my Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Poppy Parade, Soft Suede and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Gingham Cottage DSP to the envelope flap.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Brightest Beauty Bundle along with the Pretty Prints Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Beauty Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by scoring a Petal Pink card base at 2 1/8″ & 4 1/4″. I measured from the top of the card front down 3″ and made a small pencil mark. I cut from the 3″ pencil mark to the top of the 4 1/4″ score line using my Paper Trimmer.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Beauty Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I took 1 of the 4″ X 5 1/4″ panels of Pretty Prints DSP and on the left side I made a small pencil mark at 2 7/8″ down from the top. I cut from the 2 7/8″ mark to the top right corner. I cut the panel in half at 2″. I adhered the panels to the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On the part of the card base that is showing, I stamped the geometric image from the Stampin’ Up! Brightest Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set in Petal Pink Ink. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in Calypso Coral Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Golden Beauty Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Festive Pearls to the sentiment.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the leaf image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink. I stamped the flower fill image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in Petal Pink Ink. I cut the image using my Golden Beauty Dies. I adhered the floral image to the front panel of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow around the bottom of the floral image using my Simply Elegant Trim.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Beauty Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I adhered a panel of Pretty Prints DSP to a Calypso Coral mat and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base. I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock from 1 1/4″down on right side up to top left corner. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Cling Stamp Set in Calypso Coral Ink on the top of the panel. I stamped the geometric image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set in Petal Pink Ink around the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the card base.

Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Fun Fold Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Has anyone made any plans for the weekend yet? I’ll be working all day tomorrow and Sunday we will all be going to the racetrack to watch my husband drive the Farrari around the track. He’s excited and I am too. I can’t wait to see his reactions after going on the high-speed ride with the pro. I bought him the whole package with the video and pictures of him driving.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here is my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic Wedding Fun Fold Card 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Season of Chic Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Celebrating You Cling Stamp Set, Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home Cling Stamp Set and the Texture Chic Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I joined in with Creativ Creases Challenge #39 this week.

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic Wedding Fun Fold Card 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Texture Chic DSP to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut 2 sets of the flower dies from the Chic Dies, one from a panel of Petal Pink cardstock and one from a panel of Distressed Gold Paper. I pieced the Petal Pink flower pieces into the Distressed Gold outline holding them together using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut 3 of the small leaf die of the Chic Dies from a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock. I adhered the flowers to the card front. I adhered the leaves under the flowers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic Wedding Fun Fold Card 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the other 2 panels of the Texture Chic DSP to the 2 front panels of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic Wedding Fun Fold Card 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrating You stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my Gold Embossing Powder from the Metallic Embossing Powders. I set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using the Designer Tags Dies. I wanted the tag a little shorter, so I cut partway through from the top, I moved the die up lining up the stitches and cut the bottom half of the tag. I adhered a piece of Soft Succulent 1/2″ Satin Shimmer Ribbon to the back of the card base using Tear & Tape. Using a small piece of White Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack, I threaded it through the tag and tied it onto the ribbon tying a knot. I wrapped the ribbon around the card and tied a bow. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the tag.

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic Wedding Fun Fold Card 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Petal Pink Ink, stamping the outline in full strength ink and the fill image stamped off once. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat and then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base.

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic Wedding Fun Fold Card 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Season of Chic stamp set in Petal Pink Ink on the envelope front, stamping the outline in full strength ink and the fill image stamped off once. I adhered a panel of Texture Chic DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Basket Thank You with Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? I had a bit of an exciting week starting off Monday. You’ll see below. Has anyone made any plans for the weekend yet? I’ll be working all day tomorrow and Sunday again.

So, before I get started with my card, last week I missed my live because we went to meet a puppy. It’s been a really sad house here since my Jasmine puppy passed. Unfortunately, the puppy was listed as a female lab/border collie mix and that was wrong. I was going to just wait until spring and this little cutie came to me. Meet Coraline. She’s a 10-week-old mix breed. I just ordered a DNA kit to find out what she is. She was listed as a lab/border collie mix, I think there might be more. I’ll let you know once I find out. She is such a good girl already. I’ve got her house broken, sleeping through the night and walking on a leash. She knows the sit command and touch already. She knows where my card making table is and runs ahead of me down the stairs to curl up while I make my cards.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here is my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Basket Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Basket Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Cling Stamp Set and the Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Basket Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by coloring a panel of Perfectly Penciled DSP using my Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the panel to a Real Red mat and then to a Basic White Thick card base. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment, the apple, the cat and the butterfly images from the Stampin’ Up! Cheerful Basket Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Real Red and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut all the images out using my Full Basket Dies.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Basket Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut the largest tag die from the Designer Tags Dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut one end of the tag off using my Paper Snips and embossed the tag using the Gingham Embossing Folder. Using my Full Basket Dies, I cut the detailed basket from a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock, the basket bands from Soft Suede cardstock, the leaves from Granny Apple Green Cardstock, the handle from Smoky Slate cardstock and the solid basket, napkin and apples from Real Red cardstock. I adhered the solid red basket behind the detailed basket using Stampin’ Dimensionals and trimmed the excess using my Paper Snips. I adhered the colored apples to the basket using Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the back of the basket. I adhered the basket to the embossed tag. I threaded a piece of Real Red ribbon from the Real Red & Garden Green 3/8″ Ribbon Combo Pack through the tag and tied it off. I adhered the tag to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Basket Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the cat next to the basket using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the butterfly to the top of the tag and the extra apples to the bottom of the card front. I cut the sentiment using my Stylish Shapes Dies and adhered it to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Basket Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

This next part is much easier to understand if you watch the video or my Instagram Reel. On the I folded the 5 1/8″ x 5 1/4″ panel of Real Red cardstock on the 1″ & 2″ score lines. I folded the 5 3/8″ X 5 1/4″ panel of Real Red cardstock on the 3 1/8″ score line. I adhered the 1″fold to the back of the 3 1/8″ fold using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the folded panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Basket Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered a colored panel of Perfectly Penciled DSP to the right inside of the card base. On a 2 3/8″ x 5 1/8″ panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the small apple branch from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Granny Apple Green, Real Red and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the panel to the center of the inner liner. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large apple branch image from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Real Red and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips (the dies for this stamp set will be available Sept 1st). I adhered the cut image to the center panel so that it would overhang. On the 3″ X 5 1/8″ panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment and the small flower image from the Apple Harvest stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the flower using my Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the panel to the left side of the inner liner.

Stampin' Up! Cheerful Basket Fun Fold 7 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the apple image from the Cheerful Basket stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image using my Granny Apple Green and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a colored panel of Perfectly Penciled DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Hippest Hippos Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Has anyone made any plans for the weekend yet? I’ll be working all day tomorrow and Sunday again.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here is my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Hippest Hippos 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Hippest Hippos Cling Stamp Set along with the Sale-a-bration Hippo Dies, Stampin’ Up! Alphabest Bundle and the Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Solid lines are score lines, dashed lines are cut lines

I started by scoring a Petal Pink card base at 1″, 2″, 3″, 5 1/4″, 6 1/4″ & 7 1/4″ along the 8 1/4″ side. I turned the panel so the 5 1/2″ side was along the edge of my trimmer and set the 8 1/4″ edge at the 1″ mark. I cut from the 1″ score line to the 3″ score line and then from the 5 1/4″ score line to the 7 1/4″ score line. I moved the card base to the 2″ line on my trimmer and repeated the cuts. I turned the cardstock around so the other 8 1/4″ edge was at the 1″ mark on my trimmer and cut the same on that side at the 1′ & 2″ marks. I folded the card base as above with the mountain and valley folds.

Stampin' Up! Hippest Hippos 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the Subtle DSP panels to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Pool Party cardstock using the largest square from the Stylish Shapes Dies and embossed it using the Into The Clouds Embossing Folder. From a panel of Rose Gold Specialty Paper I cut the bucket die from the Hippo Dies. I cut the top of the umbrella and hat die from the Hippo Dies from scraps of the Soft Sea Foam Subtle DSP.

Stampin' Up! Hippest Hippos 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the ballerina hippo image from the Hippest Hippos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Flirty Flamingo, Gray Granite and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the Hippo Dies. I also cut out the umbrella die from the panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the umbrella top to the Basic White umbrella using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a scrap of Petal Pink Subtle DSP, I stamped the tutu part of the hippo image and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I adhered the tutu to the hippo image using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the hippo to the Pool Party panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the bucket below the hippo using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the hat to the hippo using a Stampin’ Dimensional. I adhered the Pool Party panel to the center of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the umbrella to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Stampin' Up! Hippest Hippos 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the background image from the Stampin’ Up! Alphabest Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Sea Foam Ink. I stamped the letters and #1 from the Alphabest stamp set on the background images in Gray Granite Ink. I punched the letters out using the Best Label Punch. I adhered the letters to the side panel of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the #1 to the hippos hand using a Stampin’ Dimensional. I added a few Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins to the card front.

On the back of the card base, I adhered the panels of Subtle DSP to the sides and top of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Hippest Hippos on the top of the panel in Gray Granite Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink below the 1st sentiment. I stamped the hippo image from the Hippest Hippos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image in using my Flirty Flamingo, Gray Granite and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat and then to the back of the card base. I added a few more of the Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins to the card back.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the ballerina hippo image from the Hippest Hippos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Subtle DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Fun Fold Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Can you believe it’s the middle of July already?? Has anyone made any plans for the weekend yet? I’ll be working all day tomorrow and Sunday.

Before I get started, today starts the Back To School Sales Tax Holiday. For those of you living in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia…you’ve got sales tax holidays coming up!!

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here is my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Cling Stamp Set and the Butterfly Kisses 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.

I started by scoring and folding the Fresh Freesia card base as listed below. I adhered a panel of Butterfly Kisses DSP to a Night of Navy mat. I adhered the layered panels to the Fresh Freesia card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the coordinating die from the Sentiment Silhouettes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card front.

I adhered 2 more panels of the Butterfly Kisses DSP to the inside of the card base. I scored & folded 3 strips of Night of Navy cardstock. I adhered the 6 square panels of Butterfly Kisses DSP to the inner 2 sections of the strips using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the strips to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the 2 outside sections of the Night of Navy strips lining the center fold up with the fold line of the card base. I fussy cut multiple butterflies from the Butterfly Kisses DSP using my Paper Snips. I adhered the butterflies to the inside of the card base using Glue Dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the top of a Basic White Panel. I stamped the tall floral image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the image using my Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the splatter image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Fresh Freesia Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, around the floral image. I adhered 2 of the fussy cut butterflies from the Butterfly Kisses DSP to the panel using Glue Dots. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Night of Navy mat and then to the back of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Quiet Meadow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image using my Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Butterfly Kisses DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! True Beauty Fun Fold Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend? Has anyone made any plans? I have off tomorrow and tomorrow night my boss has bought all the employees and a guest, tickets to our local minor league baseball game. There are 40 of us that will be in the picnic area eating, drinking and having fun. When the game is over there’s a fireworks display, YAY!! It’s supposed to be nice out, so hopefully we won’t be sweating too much.

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. I’m sorry about the hot mess with my scoring and folding of my card base. I had all the measurements written down, but I wrote one of them wrong. All the correct measurements are below. 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 are my cards for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! True Beauty Bundle along with the Awash In Beauty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by scoring and folding a Blushing Bride card base at 4 1/4″, 6 3/4″ & 9 1/4″.

I adhere panel of Awash In Beauty DSP to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the belly band, I took the strip of Blushing Bride cardstock and loosely wrapped it around the card base, so it slides on and off easily. I adhered it together using Stampin’ Seal +. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the rose image from the Stampin’ Up! True Beauty Cling Stamp Set in Blushing Bride Ink and Merry Merlot Ink. Using my Organic Beauty Dies, I cut the 2 rose images and 3 sprig dies from the Basic White panel. I cut 2 of the leaf dies from a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock. I brushed some Balmy Blue Ink on the sprigs using my Blending Brush. I adhered the 2 leaf dies to the belly band using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the roses over the leaf dies using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tucked the sprigs under the roses using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Merry Merlot cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the True Beauty stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using the Stylish Shapes Dies and adhered it to the belly band using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot. I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the belly bank.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the True Beauty stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the Awash in Beauty DSP. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the True Beauty stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink. I stamped the stem image from the True Beauty stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the rose image from the True Beauty stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the stem. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to the inside of the card base over the DSP.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the rose image from True Beauty stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink on the envelope front. Using my Stampin’ Up! Masking Paper, I stamped the rose and fussy cut it, using my Paper Snips. I covered the rose and stamped the 2nd rose in Merry Merlot Ink and the leaf image from the True Beauty stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink. I adhered a panel of Awash in Beauty 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 will CASE this card and please feel free to post it in the comments on my Facebook page under my post. I’d love to see your take on the card.

Stampin’ Up! Wonderful World Sneak Peek Fun Fold Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. I have off from both jobs this weekend. I was originally scheduled for Saturday, but one of my cashiers asked if she could work since she needed next weekend off, and I requested Sunday off since it’s my son’s birthday and Father’s Day.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. I actually have 2 versions of the card to show you. Here are my cards for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration Wonderful World Bundle (available July 1st) along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set for my cards today.

I started by cutting the Rich Razzleberry card base front. I lined up the 8 1/2″ edge at the 3″ mark on my Paper Trimmer. I cut from the 3″ mark to the 3/4″ mark. I turned the paper so the 5 1/2″ side was lined up at the 3″ mark on my Paper Trimmer. I cut from the 4 3/4″ mark to the 2 1/2″ mark. Gently push the cut panel towards the inside of the card so that the bottom corner becomes the top corner.

I cut a panel of the Wonderful World DSP (Sale-a-bration item available July 1st). Line up the 5 3/8″ side at the 2 15/16″ mark on the Paper Trimmer and cut from top down to the 2 1/2″ mark. Turn paper so the 4 1/8″ side is lined up on the Paper Trimmer at the 2 15/16″ mark and cut from the 3″ mark down. Adhered the Wonderful World DSP to the front of the card base lining the cut edge up with the cut edge of the card base. You will have to trim the small corners with Paper Snips that fold down under the flipped portion of the card.

Using the largest square from the Stylish Shapes Dies, cut a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock. Stamp the small leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Wonderful World Cling Stamp Set (available July 1st from Sale-a-bration), in Mossy Meadow Ink multiple times on the Mossy Meadow panel. Adhere the die cut square to the flipped corner using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the rose image from the Wonderful World stamp set using the Marker to stamp technique. I colored the rose using my Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Write Marker and the stem using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Marker. Huff on the stamp a couple times and stamp on the Basic White panel. I cut the image using the 3rd largest circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the stamped image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Opal Rounds to the card front.

For this card I stamped the flower image from the Wonderful World stamp set using my Orchid Oasis and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Markers on a panel of Basic White cardstock and cut the image out using the largest square from the Stylish Shapes Dies.

I adhered a panel of Wonderful World DSP to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on a Basic White panel. I huffed on the already inked stamped to reactivate the ink and stamped the image on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Rich Razzleberry card base making sure it is under the folded panel.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Wonderful World stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card front.

I adhered a panel of the Wonderful World 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 will CASE this card and please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under my post. I’d love to see your take on the card.

Stampin’ Up! Simply Fabulous Fun Fold Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. I have to work on Saturday and Sunday is our quarterly in person team meeting.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Simply Fabulous Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set and the Butterfly Kisses 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is the template for the card as promised.

Once I cut and folded the Basic White cardstock as in the above picture, I adhered panels of Butterfly Kisses DSP to Fresh Freesia mats. I adhered the layered panel to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the stem/leaf image from the Simply Fabulous stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat and then to the Basic White card base. I added Fun Flower Resin Shapes to the top of the stamped stem image.

I fussy cut multiple butterflies from the Butterfly Kisses DSP using my Paper Snips. I adhered the butterflies to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the Basic White panel for the inside, I stamped the stem/leaf image from the Simply Fabulous stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat and then to the inside of the Basic White card base. I adhered the fussy cut butterflies on the inside using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the stems and leaves from the Simply Fabulous stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink. I stamped the hearts on the stems in Calypso Coral Ink. I adhered a panel of Butterfly Kisses 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 will CASE this card and please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under my post. I’d love to see your take on the card. 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!!
