Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Fun Fold Friday Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Are you ready for the long Memorial Day weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. We’re planning a small picnic for Monday afternoon.

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! Sending Smiles Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiment Photopolymer Stamp Set, the Vellum Layering Designs and Design A Daydream Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I cut a panel of Design A Daydream DSP using the largest square from the Stylish Shapes Dies. I adhered the panel to a Petal Pink mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Vellum Layering Designs card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the 2 stem images from the Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mint Macaron Ink. I stamped 3 of the flower images from Sending Smiles stamp set in Fresh Freesia and Petal Pink Inks and the flower centers in Daffodil Delight Ink. I cut the stem and flower images using my Sending Dies. I cut the detailed sentiment from the Sending Dies from a panel of Design A Daydream DSP. I cut the bubble die from a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock. I adhered the detailed sentiment to the bubble sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the 2 stems to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the flowers on top of the stems using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment across the bottom of the stems using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Sending Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Opal Rounds to the card front.

Fo the inside, I scored a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock at 2 1/8″, 4 1/4′ & 6 3/8″. I centered the 4th largest Deckled Rectangle Die on the panel and cut it out. The center score line is a mountain fold, and the 2 side score lines are valley folds. I adhered 2 panels of Design A Daydream DSP to either side of the Mint Macaron panel. On the Basic White Thick card base, I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink in the center of the panel. I stamped the 2 stem images from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom of the panel below the sentiment. I stamped the flower images from the Sending Smiles stamp set on the stems in Fresh Freesia and Petal Pink Inks and the flower centers in Daffodil Delight Ink. I then scored and folded the Basic White Thick card base. I adhered the Mint Macaron panel to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base using Stampin’ Seal +. I added a couple Brushed Brass Butterflies to the inside of the card.

Here is a photo of how the card will look from the top.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower and stem image from the Sending Smiles stamp set in Mint Macaron, Petal Pink and Fresh Freesia Inks. I adhered a panel of Design A Daydream 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! Bouquet of Thanks for Fun Fold Friday with Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How are you all doing today? Are you ready for the weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. It’s supposed to be a hot one here, last I heard was the upper 90’s.

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! Bouquet of Thanks Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set and the 2022-2024 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my easel card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the 2022-2024 In-Color DSP to a Sweet Sorbet mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I scored & folded the Crumb Cake card base as listed below. I adhered the smaller panel of Sweet Sorbet cardstock to the top section of the card base front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the bottom section of the card base front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the floral image from the Bouquet of Thanks stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock. I stamped the sentiment banner from the floral image on a panel of Shimmery White cardstock in Soft Suede Ink. I fussy cut the banner using my Paper Snips. I adhered the fussy cut banner to the stamped panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Shimmer White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I adhered the sentiment to a Sweet Sorbet mat using Stampin’ Seal.

On the inside I stamped the top of the floral image from the Bouquet of Thanks stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off twice on scrap paper, on the side of the Shimmery White panel. I adhered the Shimmery White panel to a Sweet Sorbet mat and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base. I figured out where I wanted to put the small sentiment and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flowers from the Bouquet of Thanks stamp set on the envelope front in Soft Suede Ink. I adhered a panel of the 2022-2024 In-Color 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! He’s All That Fun Fold Box Gift Card Holder Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. It’s Friday the 13th, do I have any superstitious stampers out there? How are you all doing today? Are you ready for the weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. I’ll be working both days this weekend.

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! He’s All That Cling Stamp Set along with the He’s The Man Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is the template for the card base. After trying to type how to put the card together, I realized that it is much easier to watch my video where I explain step by step.

Once I scored, folded and adhered the box together, I adhered 2 panels of He’s The Man DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the 2 thinner panels of He’s The Man DSP to the inside of the box using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped the belly band around the card base and adhered it together using Tear & Tape. I adhered a panel of He’s The Man DSP to the front of the panel where it is adhered together.

The pack of He’s The Man DSP comes with 2 sheets of die-cut pieces. I adhered one of the pieces to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the belly band using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rustic Metallic Dots to the die-cut panel

On the inside, I stamped the sentiments from the He’s All That stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered a Cajun Craze mat inside the box using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I recommend not adhering the Basic White panel inside the card until after you sign it since you would be signing inside a box.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small corner image from He’s All That stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the top corners of the envelope front. I adhered a strip of He’s The Man DSP to the envelope front and a panel 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.

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints Fun Fold Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. 14 years ago today we brought home my little fur baby Jasmine. She was so small, loved to be held and would curl up in my lap. She’s much bigger now and can’t do that, but she still loves to lay her head on my lap. She has brought us so much joy over the past 14 years, I can’t imagine not having her around. She has been the most loyal companion I’ve ever had, sticking by my side if I’m inside making cards, blogging or outside gardening. She was my Mother’s Day gift 14 years ago. Happy Gotch Day Jasmine.

Are you ready for the weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. I’ll be working Sunday this weekend. Yes, I have to work on Mother’s Day. I make up the schedule for all the cashiers a month in advance. For some reason I thought next Sunday was Mother’s Day. It’s ok though, I’m working with a friend of mine and we always have a lot of fun together.

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! Sun Prints Suite Collection for my card today.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints Cling Stamp Set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Night of Navy cardstock. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder from the Basic Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using the Natural Prints Dies. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the wheat grass image from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. I cut the images out using my Natural Prints Dies. Using my Natural Prints Dies, I cut 4 of the larger sprigs from a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock and 2 of the small sprigs from a panel of Pacific Point cardstock.

Here is my template of how to score and fold the card base. I suggest not using Basic White Thick cardstock like I did. It’s harder to fold on the score lines properly. When I tried this on regular cardstock, all my score lines folded perfectly. I scored and folded my Basic White Thick cardstock as listed in the above photo.

For the front Sun Prints DSP panel, I measured down from the top right 1 7/8″. I cut from the 1 7/8″ mark to the top left corner using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered the panels to the front of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. For the back Sun Prints DSP panel, I measured up from the bottom left 1 7/8″. I cut from the 1 7/8″ mark to the bottom right corner using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered the panels to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. For the center Basic White panel, I measured down from the top left 1 7/8″ and made a small mark. I measured up from the bottom right 1 7/8″ and made a little mark. I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Prints stamp set below where I would be cutting the panel in Pacific Point Ink. I stamped the floral images from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Pacific Point Ink, stamping off twice on scrap paper, on the top and bottom of the panel. I stamped the wheat grass image from the Nature’s Print stamp set in Saraha Sand Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the side and bottom of the panel. I cut from the pencil marks on the Basic White panel to the opposite corners using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered the 3 pieces of Basic White cardstock to the inside of the Basic Whtie Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the belly band, I embossed the strip of Basic White cardstock using the Fern 3E Embossing Folder. To do this, I put the strip in the folder on an angle and ran it through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I loosely wrapped the belly band around the card base and adhered it using Tear & Tape. I arranged the die cut pieces the way I wanted them and adhered them together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sentiment over the top of the small collage using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the collage to the belly band, over the seam where I adhered it together, using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the sentiment panel.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Pacific Point Ink, stamping off twice on scrap paper, on the envelope front. I stamped the wheat grass image from the Nature’s Prints stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, next to the floral image. I adhered a panel of the Sun Prints DSP to the envelope flap.

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! Wisteria Wishes Fun Fold Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How are you all doing today? Are you ready for the weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. I’ll be working both days this weekend in the office at Ace. It’s the end of the month, so I have to close out the books on Saturday and Sunday I have to print and send my monthly bills.

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 new Stampin’ Up! Wisteria Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set (available May 3rd) along with the 2022-2024 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper (available May 3rd) for my Double Z-Fold card today.

I started by stamping the branch image from the Wisteria Wishes stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a Basic White card front. I stamped the wisteria image from the Wisteria Wishes stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the branch. I stamped the detail wisteria image in Orchid Oasis Ink over the image. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the branch image again in Soft Succulent Ink and the wisteria image the same as I did of the card front on the Basic White panel. I cut the images out using my Wisteria Dies.

I adhered the branch to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the die cut wisteria to the branch using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut the detailed branch from the Wisteria Dies from a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock. I cut the larger wisteria die from the Wisteria Dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock that I colored using my Blending Brush and Orchid Oasis Ink. I cut the detailed wisteria die from the Wisteria Dies from a panel of Orchid Oasis cardstock. I adhered the branch to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the wisteria dies together using Glue Dots and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2022-2024 In-Color Matte Decorative
Dots
to the card front.

I adhered the 3 panel of 2022-2024 In-Color DSP to Basic White mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the small Z-Fold panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Wisteria Wishes stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the small Z-Fold panel to the larger card base using Tear & Tape. I adhered the card front to the front of the Soft Succulent card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the stem image from the Wisteria Wishes stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink. I stamped the wisteria image from the Wisteria Wishes stamp set first in Petal Pink Ink, then using my Sponge Dauber I added Sweet Sorbet Ink to the bottom of the flowers and stamped them on the Basic White panel. I cut the images out using my Wisteria Dies. I adhered the flower image to the stems using Glue Dots and then to the back card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added my last Bumblebee Trinket by the flowers using a Glue Dot.

Here is the view from the top.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the stem image from the Wisteria Wishes stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the flower image from the Wisteria Wishes stamp set, colored the same as for the card, on the stems. I adhered a panel of the 2022-2024 In-Color 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 items used for today’s card will be available May 3rd.

Stampin’ Up! Happiness Abounds for Fun Fold Friday with Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and Happy Earth Day! I feel the need to plant a tree today. I’d love to plant another one in my backyard, but it must be a flowering one. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How are you all doing today? Are you ready for the weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. I’ll be working all day tomorrow and I’m pretty sure all-day Sunday too.

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! Happiness Abounds Photopolymer Stamp Set (available May 3rd) along with the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper for my card today.

On a piece of Vellum Paper, I stamped the rose and leaf images from the Happiness Abounds stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Silver Embossing Powder and set it with my Heat Tool. I flipped the Vellum Paper over to the non-embossed side and colored the images using my Parakeet Party and Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers (available May 3rd).

I folded my card base on the scored line. I adhered the smaller Basic Gray panel to the back of the top flap using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the panel of Blushing Bride cardstock to the front or the gray panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Vellum panel to the Blushing Bride panel only where the sentiment will be adhered using Stampin’ Seal and a couple Glue Dots on the top under the ribbon.

On the strip of Basic Gray cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Happiness Abounds stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I adhered the sentiment to the Vellum panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I wrapped a piece of Sweet Sorbet 1/8″ Metallic Ribbon (available May 3rd) around the top card flap and tied a bow. I added a few Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

I adhered a panel of Heart & Home DSP to the inside of the Basic Gray card base. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Happiness Abounds stamp set in Basic Gray Ink. I stamped the rose images from the Happiness Abounds stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to the inside of the card base under the outer flap using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the rose images from the Happiness Abounds stamp set in tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the images in using my Parakeet Party and Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Heart & Home DSP on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Some of the items used for today’s card will be available May 3rd. 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! Hello Ladybug Bumblebee, Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends HAPPY APRIL!!! Welcome to my fun fold Friday. I can’t believe that it’s April, WOW!!! My Bradford Pear Tree has buds on it and so does my Dogwood Tree. My Hydrangeas are starting to sprout green and Tulips are popping up everywhere. Looks like spring is in the air, now if the temperatures would just cooperate. Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be signed in on my OnTour watching new products get used and learning some new things. I got my preorder placed this morning before I had to leave for work, so once it come in I’ll do an unveiling video. My credit card has gone in hiding for a bit, I guess it was a little bit of a shock all at once for it.

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! Hello Ladybug Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by scoring and folding a Bumblebee card base at 2 1/8″ & 4 1/4″ to make a Z-Fold card. I adhered 2 panels of Pansy Petals DSP to 2 Basic Black mats. I adhered 1 of the layered panels on the front of the card base.

I cut 2 of the flower images from a panel of Pansy Petals DSP and 6 of the leaf images from another panel of Pansy Petals DSP using my Pansy Dies. I adhered the leaves to the back of the die cut flower using Glue Dots. I adhered 2 of the 1 7/8″ Basic Black squares to the card front as diamonds lining up the corners with the edge of the matted DSP. I adhered the die cut pansies to the diamonds using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Ladybug Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a strip of Basic White cardstock. I cut the strip using my Banner Pick A Punch and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered 2 of the Adhesive-Backed Hexagons to the sentiment and 2 to the flower centers.

I cut a small panel of Basic Black cardstock using the Ladybug Builder Punch. I adhered 3 strips of Bumblebee cardstock evenly on the punched ladybug giving it stripes for the bumblebee. I punched a piece of Vellum paper using the Ladybug Builder Punch for the wings. I embossed the Vellum paper using my Hive 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the wings to the bumblebee body using a Stampin’ Dimensional and added an Adhesive-Backed Hexagon in the center of the wings. For the mechanism the bumblebee is on, I took a 2 7/8″ square of Basic Black cardstock scored and folded it from corner to corner one way. I cut a 2 3/4″ square of Pansy Petals in half corner to corner and adhered it to one side of the square. After the inside was finished, I matched up the square with the inner liner, having the DSP side facing out. I added Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the Basic Black side of the triangle and adhered the card base to it so that it would line up perfectly. I adhered the bumblebee to the DSP side using Stampin’ Dimensionals. (If I didn’t explain this part clearly it might be better off watching the video).

I adhered the 2nd DSP layered panel to the inside left of the card base. I cut 2 – 2″ Basic Black squares to make triangles. I cut 2 – 1 3/4″ Pansy Petal DSP squares to make triangles. I adhered the DSP to the Basic Black mats and then to the 4 corners of the inside of the card base. On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Hello Ladybug stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the flower image from the Hello Ladybug stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat and adhered it to the inside of the Bumblebee card base. I added a couple Bumblebee Trinkets to the 2 outside corners.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Pansy Petals DSP to the envelope front and a panel 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! New Shipping Fees Beginning April 1

I want to let you know about a change to Stampin’ Up!’s shipping and handling pricing.  Starting April 1, the minimum shipping charge will increase by $1.00, from $6.95 to $7.95—or by one percentage point, from 10% to 11% of the total order amount—whichever is greater.

If you ever use the expedited shipping options, those fees are going up a bit too.  Here are the new fees for expedited shipping:

  • Next Day Upgrade: $38.00 USD ($3.00 USD increase from the previous rate)
  • 2nd Day Upgrade: $23.00 USD ($3.00 USD increase from the previous rate)
  • 3 Day Shipping Upgrade: $15.00 USD ($5.00 USD increase from the previous rate)
  • The expedited shipping option rates above are calculated in addition to the standard shipping rate (e.g., the next day shipping option would cost $7.95 USD or 11%—whichever is greater—plus $38.00 USD)

I want to make sure you’re aware of this change, as it impacts both you and me.  Stampin’ Up! has worked to keep the increase as minimal as possible so they can continue bringing you the unique, high-quality, and coordinated paper crafting products that you love.

I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to some of the Poppy Parade flowers. I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the 2nd largest Scalloped Contours Dies.

Stampin’ Up! Waves of Inspiration Fun Fold Friday 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’m off tomorrow, but I have to work 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. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Waves of The Ocean Collection for my card today.

I started by placing a panel of the Waves of the Ocean Designer Series Paper on the front of a Petal Pink card base and using my Hippo & Friends Dies I cut through the 2 panels using the 3rd largest die. I adhered the DSP to a Coastal Cabana Blue Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal and then lining up the openings I adhered the layered panel to the front of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut the Waves Dies from a panel of Coastal Cabana Blue Foil and adhered it to a panel of the Waves of The Ocean DSP using an Adhesive Sheet. I cut the DSP around the wave using my Paper Snips, then adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and cut off the excess. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the pelican image from the Stampin’ Up! Waves of Inspiration Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the image out using my Waves Dies along with cutting out the clouds and detailed cloud dies. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. From a small panel of Smoky Slate cardstock, I cut a few of the birds using my Waves Dies.

I adhered the pelican image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the cloud images to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals overlapping the opening a little. I adhered the birds to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I scored and folded the smaller card base. Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the wave image from the Waves of Inspiration stamp set on the front of the small card base in Coastal Cabana Ink. I adhered the other detailed wave I cut from the Coastal Cabana Blue Foil paper using an Adhesive Sheet. I adhered the small card to the inside of the Petal Pink card base opening the opposite way. I closed the cards and stamped the sentiment from the Waves of Inspiration stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink through the opening on the front of the card. I stamped a few of the bird image from the Waves of Inspiration stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the small card front. I added a cloud that I had die cut from a panel of Basic White cardstock using my Waves Dies, to the top of the panel. I added a few of the Rhinestone Waves Basic Jewels to the large and small card fronts.

On the inside of the small card base I stamped the birds and sentiment from the Waves of Inspiration in Smoky Salte Ink. I added a cloud that I had die cut from a panel of Basic White cardstock using my Waves Dies, on the top of the panel. I stamped the pelican image from the Waves of Inspiration stamp set on the opposite side in Tuxedo Black Ink and very lightly colored it, so the ink didn’t bleed through, using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the wave image from the Waves of Inspiration stamp set in Coastal Cabana Ink.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the pelican image from the Waves of Inspiration stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it the same as I did for the card. I stamped a couple of the birds in Smoky Slate Ink by the pelican. I adhered a panel of Waves of The Ocean 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.

Stampin’ Up! Hello Ladybug Fun Fold

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything fun? We’re at the last day of February and that means the last day of Sale-a-bration and the last day of the awesome joining special. If you’ve been thinking about joining now is the best time. Since I joined 3 years ago, this has been the best joining special ever. You can join just to enjoy the discount and nothing else. I’d be happy to talk to you about it if you’re interested, I’d love to have you on my team.

Today’s card was my practice card for my fun fold Friday’s card. I usually practice with retired cardstock and DSP, but this time I didn’t. You can see Friday’s card Here along with a link to the video. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Hello Ladybug Bundle along with the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by scoring and cutting a Basic White Thick card base. I scored an 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ card base at 4 1/4″ and cut 2″ off the front right of the card base. I adhered a panel of Pattern Party DSP to a Poppy Parade mat and then to the front of a Basic White Thick card front. The panel of Pattern Party DSP I colored some of the flowers using my Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the leaf image from the Hello Ladybug stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink. Using the 3rd largest Stitched So Sweetly Dies I cut the stamped panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Hello Ladybug stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink next to the leaf. On a panel of Basic Whtie cardstock, I stamped the ladybug body from the Hello Ladybug stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink, the wings in Poppy Parade Ink and the dots on the wings in Tuxedo Black Ink. I punched the images out using my Ladybug Builder Punch. I adhered the wings to the body using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the ladybug to the sentiment panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the left half of the panel. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the panel.

On a 1 1/2″ strip of Basic White cardstock I made marks every 1/2″ along both sides using a pencil so I could erase them when I was done if they were showing. I took 2 different panel of 3″ X 6″ Pattern Party DSP and cut 1/2″ strips. Starting at the top of the panel, I adhered one pattern of the DSP on an angle. I then adhered the other panel of the DSP going the opposite way over the top of the 1st pattern. I trimmed off all the excess using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered the panel to a Poppy Parade mat and then to the right back of the Basic Whtie Thick card base.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Hello Ladybug stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the ladybug image from the Hello Ladybug stamp set in Tuxedo Black and Poppy Parade Inks on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Poppy Parade mat and then to the inside of the Basic White Thick card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the ladybug and leaf images from the Hello Ladybug stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I stamped the sentiment from the Hello Ladybug stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the leaf. I adhered a panel of the Pattern Party DSP to the envelope flap.

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