Stampin’ Up! A Touch Of Ink for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the weekend? I’ll be working both days this weekend. It’s the end of the month so I have to work in the office for a bit on Sunday.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. 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 used the Stampin’ Up! A Touch Of Ink Sale-A-Bration Photopolymer Stamp Set and Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper for my card. These 2 items will only be available for 2 more days. Sale-A-Bration ends on Sunday February 28, 2021. Here’s my card for today.

I played along with Festive Friday Challenge #0078. I have Flower, Glitter (the gems), it’s for Girls/Women, there’s a Fun Fold and Female Sentiment.

I started by adhering a Petal Pink panel to the front of my Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a Paper Blooms DSP card front to a Rococo Rose mat using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the outline butterfly image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I stamped over the outline with the fill image in Petal Pink Ink. I cut the image out using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I adhered it to a Night of Navy square mat, that I cut using my Layering Squares Dies, using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the sentiment from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and cut it out using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I adhered it to a Night of Navy mat which I also cut using my Stitched Shapes Dies. I took a 2″ X 6″ strip of Night of Navy card stock and scored it at 2″ & 2 1/4″. I punched the longer end using my Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. I adhered the sentiment to the shorter end, before the 1st score line of the Night of Navy strip, only putting adhesive on the left side of the sentiment. I folded on the 2 score lines and adhered the matted butterfly image on the edge of the 2nd score line using Tear & Tape Adhesive. Using my Classic Label Punch, I centered it from side to side on the card front and pushed the card front in as far as it would go and punched the label. I inserted the Night of Navy strip from the front to the back of the card front, inserting the scalloped end in first. I added Tear & Tape Adhesive just to the outside edge of the sentiment and adhered it to the card front about 1/2″ from the right side. I adhered the card front to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Thoughts Cling
Stamp Set
in the center of a Basic White panel in Night of Navy Ink. I stamped the outline butterfly image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the butterfly fill image over the outlined image in Petal Pink Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the butterfly image from A Touch Of Ink stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Paper Blooms DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s week? We got another 8″ of snow yesterday topped with a little ice. I’m really ready for spring and to start planting my flowers. Are you ready for the weekend? I’m actually only working on Sunday this weekend. I was shocked when I looked at my calendar, but it was a very pleasant surprise.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you very much. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. I used the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set for my card today. I really didn’t think I was going to like this set when it came out last year, but I have gotten so much use of it between birthday cards and Mother’s Day cards. I’m really loving this set. Here’s my card that I made.

My colors for today’s card were from Inspire. Create. Challenge # 084.

I started with a panel of True Love Designer Series Paper cutting the panel only to the flowers then fussy cutting them using my Paper Snips. I colored just the center flowers in on the DSP using my Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I scored a Rococo Rose card base at 2 3/4″ & 5 1/2″, scoring and folding on both folds inward. I adhered a panel of Love You Always Specialty Designer Series Paper to the bottom front section of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the cut and colored panel of True Love DSP to the top of the DSP using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the sentiment from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Rococo Rose ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and cut it out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Rococo Rose Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and cut it out using the 3rd smallest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I stamped the flower image on the bottom of the die cut panel in Rococo Rose Ink. I stamped the rose fill image in Rococo Rose Ink over the outlined image stamping off twice. I adhered a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock to the inside of the Rococo Rose card base using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the flower image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink in the 4 corners of the panel. I adhered the scalloped sentiment to the Sahara Sand panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I made 2 small bows using the Blushing Bride 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon. I adhered 1 to the inside sentiment using a Glue Dot. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I first adhered the 2nd Blushing Bride bow to the top of the front of the card base using a Glue Dot. I adhered a panel of Love You Always Specialty DSP to the envelope flap. I stamped the outline flower image from the Dressed To Impress stamp set on the envelope front in Rococo Rose.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Birthday for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Is anyone doing anything for the weekend? I’ll be working all weekend at both jobs.

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

I used the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Bundle, coming March 2nd, and the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Wishes Cling Stamp Set for my fun fold card. I played along with the Aud Sentiments Challenge #268, ‘Anything Goes + A Sentiment’. I also played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #308.

I started by scoring and cutting a Misty Moonlight card base at 1 3/4″, 3 1/2″, 5 1/4″ & 7″. I lined the long edge of the card base at the 1 1/4″ mark on my trimmer and cut from the 1 3/4″ score line up to the 5 1/4″ score line. I slid the card base so the opposite long edge was lined up at the 1 1/4″ mark on my trimmer and again cut from the 1 3/4″ score line up to the 5 1/4″ score line. I folded the card like an accordion having the cut portion popping out. I stamped the butterflies from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Cling Stamp (coming March 2nd) in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the butterflies out using the Brilliant Wings Dies (coming March 2nd). I colored the butterflies in using my Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron, Misty Moonlight and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Above is a top view of how the card base should look.

I adhered a panel of the new Butterfly Bijou 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper (coming March 2nd) to the front of the card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a panel of the Natural Touch Specialty Paper (coming March 2nd) to the pop out portion overlapping the front DSP panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink and cut the panel out using the 2nd largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front panel using Stampin’ Seal and adhered a butterfly to it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered 4 small panels of Butterfly Bijou DSP to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue.

I adhered a panel of the Butterfly Bijou DSP to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of the Natural Touch Specialty Paper to the pop out panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and adhered it to the pop out panel using Stampin’ Seal. I cut a small butterfly from another panel of Butterfly Bijou DSP using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the sentiment using Glue Dots. I adhered a panel of Natural Touch Specialty Designer Paper to the front of a small Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Hippo & Friends Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of the die cut panel and adhered it to the 2nd card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On the inside of the small card base I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Punch Party Photopolymer Sale-a-bration Host Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center. I colored the flowers and leaves in on the sentiment using my Magenta Madness and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a butterfly to the inside using Glue Dots. I adhered the small card base to the back of the larger card base using Stampin’ Seal. I added a few 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card fronts.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped one of the butterflies from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron and Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Butterfly Bijou to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance For Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? We’re upon a weekend already. This week just flew by for me. I guess with the snow Monday and Tuesday and working yesterday and today, it’s just gone.

Sorry I missed doing a Facebook live on Wednesday. I had a tooth ache so I went to the dentist (where you would normally go for that). 3 hours later I was still there, UGH!! Unfortunately I have to go for a root canal this morning and then to work from there. Fun times. So I changed my fun fold for today for a simple one using some NEW product that I received yesterday YAY!!! The gorgeous new Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Collection. Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Fab Friday Color Challenge #206.

I started by adhering a panel of the new Butterfly Bijou 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Basic Black Mat using Stampin’ Seal. I scored and folded a Blushing Bride card base at 2 3/4″ & 5 1/2″. I folded the card in half and then folded the front panel back and adhered it using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted panel to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the butterfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. This stamp set is one large background stamp that when you use the dies cuts it into 6 butterflies. I cut the butterflies out using the Brilliant Wings Dies. I colored the largest butterfly in using my Water Painters filled with alcohol and Bumblebee Ink on a clear block.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the branch and floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Water Painter filled with alcohol and Blushing Bride Ink on a clear block and my Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, only on half of the panel. I adhered the butterfly to the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Butterfly Bijou DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered another panel of the Butterfly Bijou DSP to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside back of the Blushing Bride card base. I colored the other butterflies using the Water Painters filled with alcohol and Blushing Bride and Bumblebee Inks on clear blocks and my Ivory Stampin’ Blends Marker. I adhered the butterflies to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Glue Dots.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Butterfly Bijou DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you all ready for the weekend? It’s the last weekend of January already. Does anyone have plans? I have to go into work for a couple hours on Sunday since it’s the last of the month, but I have off tomorrow. It’s my husbands birthday this weekend, so I thought I’d be nice and be home to make him a birthday dinner. Turns out he wants pizza made in his pizza oven, which means he’s cooking.

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

I used the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Bundle for my card today along with the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper.

I started by doing all the cutting and folding on a Terracotta Tile card base. I started with a panel of 4 1/4″ X 11″ card base. I scored it at the 5 1/2″ mark from the top to 1″ from the bottom. I scored at 6″ from the bottom up 1″. I scored at 3 1/4″ from the bottom up to 1″. I scored at 8 1/4″ from the top down to 1″. I turned the card base and lined the edge up at the 1″ mark on my Trimmer and cut from the 3 1/4″ score line to the 8 1/4″ score line. I valley folded on the 5 1/2″ score line and mountain folded on the 6″ score line. The other score lines kind of just fall into place. It’s explained much better on the video if you are able to watch it.

This is the top view of the card base and how it should look.

I adhered the panels of Fine Art Floral DSP to Basic White mats using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Photopolymer Stamp Set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Mossy Meadow Ink and cut it out using the smallest label die from the Floral Gallery Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom cut panel of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I embossed a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the back panel of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink, stamping off once. I stamped the detail flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink over the stamped off image. I stamped the stem image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the images out using the Floral Gallery Dies. I adhered the stem image to the embossed panel using Glue Dots. I adhered the flower on the stem using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the inside I stamped the bouquet of flowers image from the Art Gallery stamp set by coloring the stems with my Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker and the tiny buds with my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker, on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the image again, just inking up the flowers with Night Of Navy Ink, I stamped off on a piece of scrap paper 2 times to get a very light shade. I stamped the small detail flower in Night of Navy Ink over 3 of the stamped flowers. I fussy cut the flowers using my Paper Snips. I adhered the flowers to the bouquet using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, then adhered the bouquet to the card base using Glue Dots. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Terracotta Tile card base using Stampin’ Seal. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the stem image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the flower image from the Art Gallery stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink, stamping off once, on the stem. I stamped the detailed flower image over the stamped image in Terracotta Tile Ink. I adhered a panel of the Fine Art Floral DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

Stampin’ Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Fun Fold

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Is anyone doing anything for the weekend? I’ll be working all weekend at both jobs.

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

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

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

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

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

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

It will look like the above photo from the top.

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

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

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Wishes for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Is anyone doing anything for the weekend? I thought I was working all weekend, but to my surprise I’m only working on Sunday.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Stampin’ Up! Darling Donkey for Fun Fold Friday

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I hope you liked my card. Items will be available in just 4 short days on January 5, 2021. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

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

Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season Birthday for Fun Fold Friday

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

WHISPER WHITE CARDSTOCK PRODUCTS- AVAILABLE WHILE SUPPLIES LAST

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

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

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

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

What does this mean for you?

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

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

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

Stampin’ Up! Warm and Toasty for Fun Fold Friday

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

I thought I was done making my Christmas cards and my husband asked me to make a card for his department to give their supervisor. Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you very much. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card that I made. I used a few stamp set for my card, but the main set I used was the Stampin’ Up! Warm & Toasty Cling Stamp Set.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the small tree images from the In The Pines stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the bottom front of the envelope. I adhered a panel of Snowflake Splendor DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.
