Stampin’ Up! Seaside Bay for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? What are you all doing this weekend? I’ll be at work tomorrow all day and I’m not sure about Sunday yet. I have the day off again, YAY!!!

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! Seaside Bay Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Seaside Bay Bundle along with the By The Bay 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Seaside Bay Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by cutting 2 3/4″ off the 4 1/4″ X 11″ Sahara Sand Card front using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered a panel of By The Bay DSP to the front of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Sahara Sand Panel, horizontally, to the card front using Stampin’ Seal only on the left side.

Stampin' Up! Seaside Bay Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the bird image from the Seaside Bay stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Seaside Bay stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the top of the panel. On a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock, I stamped the shell/sand image from the Seaside Bay stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. After letting it dry for a bit, I stamped the sand image from the Seaside Bay stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my Clear Embossing Powder and set it with my Heat Tool. I cut the panel using the sand border die from the Seaside Bay Dies. I adhered the panel to the bottom of the Basic White panel using Stampin’ Seal. From a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock I cut the sea grass using my Seaside Bay Dies. I added a little Mint Macaron Ink to the grass using my Sponge Dauber. From a panel of Sahara Sand and Pearlescent Specialty Paper I cut the shell image using the Seaside Bay Dies.

Stampin' Up! Seaside Bay Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I cut the Pearlescent shell in half and adhered it to the inside of the Sahara Sand die cut shell. I brushed a little Petal Pink Ink on top of the shell using my Small Blending Brush. I adhered the sea grass die cut pieces to the Basic White panel using Glue Dots. I adhered the shell on top of the grass using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the Basic White panel the Sahara Sand card front using Stampin’ Seal. I added a Flat Adhesive-Backed Pearl inside the shell and Iridescent Pearls to the card front.

On the inside, I adhered a panel of By The Bay DSP to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Seaside Bay stamp set in Starry Sky Ink. I stamped the shell and sand image from the Seaside Bay stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside left of the card base.

Stampin' Up! Seaside Bay Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the larger shell image from the Seaside Bay stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of By The Bay DSP to the envelope flap.

In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Citrus for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans yet for the weekend? I’ll be at work tomorrow all day. I’m hoping to de-Christmas my house this weekend too, it’s time to take the decorations down. I was going to start today, but I’m not sure how much I’ll get done. Coraline starts her training classes today. I’m really looking forward to these. As good of a puppy she is, she needs that discipline, and she is one stubborn little girl.

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! Sweet Citrus Bundle and the Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Citrus Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of the Subtle DSP to a So Saffron card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the bottom triangle only of the card base. I adhered a strip of the Subtle DSP to the side panel of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the outline lemon image from the Sweet Citrus stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink. I stamped the inside pulp image from the Sweet Citrus stamp set in So Saffron Ink over the outline image. Using the Sweet Citrus Dies and Sweet Citrus Hybrid Embossing Folder, I cut and embossed the images. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the leaf image multiple times in Granny Apple Green Ink. I cut the leaves out using the Sweet Citrus Dies. I adhered cut lemon pieces to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the leaves under the lemons using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added Faux Sea Glass Shapes to the lemon pieces as seeds.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Citrus Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Citrus stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink. I cut the ends of the sentiment using my Paper Snips on an angle. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a couple 2021-2023 In-Color Opal Rounds to the sentiment.

I adhered the Basic White panel to a Blushing Bride mat then to the inside of the So Saffron card base. I adhered the solid lemon image to the bottom corner of the inner liner using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the leaves under the lemon using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans yet for the weekend? I’ll be at work tomorrow, but I have Sunday off so I can attend our quarterly in person meeting. I always look forward to attending the meetings and getting together with team members.

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! Dainty Delight Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight Bundle (available January 5, 2023) along with the Sale-a-bration Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper (available free with a qualifying order starting January 5, 2023) for my card today. Something awesome about the new bundles coming in the January – April 2023 Mini Catalog, is that the stamp set and dies are the same name!!! If you like this bundle and purchase it, you will be able to earn the DSP for FREE. I don’t know about you, but free is my favorite price.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by cutting all the die cut pieces of flowers, stems and leaves using the Dainty Delight Dies from panels of Crushed Curry, Fresh Freesia, Old Olive and Orchid Oasis cardstock. I adhered the stems, flowers and leaves to a panel of Dainty Flowers DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots. I trimmed off any excess using my Paper Snips. I adhered the panel to a small Orchid Oasis card front panel. I adhered the artwork panel to the inside back of the card base so that it overlapped the front of the card.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered a panel of Dainty Flowers DSP to a Fresh Freesia mat. I adhered the layered panel to the front of an Orchid Oasis card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight Cling Stamp Set in Orchid Oasis Ink. I stamped the floral images on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the flowers in using my Fresh Freesia, Old Olive, Orchid Oasis and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue under the card front flap.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the small floral/grass image from the Dainty Delight stamp set in Old Olive Ink along the bottom of a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral images from the Dainty Delight stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on either side of the panel. I colored the floral images in using my Fresh Freesia, Old Olive, Orchid Oasis and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Fresh Freesia mat then to the inside of the Orchid Oasis card base.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral images from the Dainty Delight stamp set on the envelope front and colored the flowers in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Dainty Flowers DSP to the envelope flap.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product (excluding cardstock) up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Flurry for Fun Fold Friday Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans yet for the weekend? I’ll be at work tomorrow, but I have Sunday off so I can attend our Zoom monthly 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 is my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Flurry Bundle and the Snowflake Vellum Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by folding my card base in half at the 5 1/2″ score line, then I folded the 4 1/2″ score line back. I adhered the 1″ binder part of the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the 2 panels of Snowflake Vellum Paper to the Starry Sky mats using a small amount of Stampin’ Seal in the center where the sentiment was going to go and the side where the ribbon was going. I also added a few Glue Dots behind the snowflake images on the Vellum Paper. I adhered the layered panels to the Orchid Oasis card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Orchid Oasis 1/8″ Metallic Woven Ribbon around the binder end and tied a bow.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Flurry Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with my Silver Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. On a panel of Starry Sky cardstock, I stamped the snowflake images from the Joyful Flurry stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled them with my Silver Embossing Powder and set them with my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment and snowflakes out using the Frosted Flurry Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the snowflakes by the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut a couple of the small snowflakes out from a panel of Silver Foil Paper. I adhered the silver foil snowflake using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Flurry stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the dotted image from the Joyful Flurry stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, next to the sentiment. I adhered the other silver snowflake by the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Starry Sky mat then to the inside of the Orchid Oasis card base.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Flurry Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the snowflake images form the Joyful Flurry stamp set in Orchid Oasis and Starry Sky Inks on the envelope front and flap, stamping some full strength and some stamped off.

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.

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.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Banners Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

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.

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.

Stampin’ Up! Brightest Beauty 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, but I have Sunday and Monday off YAY!!!

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! Brightest Beauty Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

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.

Stampin' Up! Brightest Beauty Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

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! Brightest Beauty Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Brightest Beauty stamp set on the envelope the same as I did for the card on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Pretty Prints DSP to the envelope flap.

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.

Stampin' Up! Hippest Hippos 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

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.

Stampin' Up! Hippest Hippos 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

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.
