Stampin’ Up! Kind & Sincere 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 was supposed to have off the entire weekend to do my baking, but unfortunately, they were shorthanded at the dog bakery and me being a softy said I could help. So, plans have changed a bit, I’ll be mixing my cookies today and baking what I could on Sunday. The rest will have to get baked off during the week. I thought about not baking anything this year, but that’s not going over well at all. I’ve been doing this since I was a little girl with my mom and as she got older, I just took over. I can’t break a tradition.

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! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Kind & Sincere Cling Stamp Set (available starting January 5, 2023) along with the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Cling Stamp Set and Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering a panel of Abigail Rose DSP to a Smoky Slate card back. I scored & folded a Pool Party card base as listed below. Adhered the card base to the center of the card back. Fussy cut one of the large flower images from the Abigail Rose DSP using Paper Snips. Color the image using Highland Heatherm Petal Pink, Pool Party, Shaded Spruce and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I embossed a Smoky Slate card front using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Pool Party mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Adhere the layered panel to the 1 1/2″ left side only of the card base. Adhere the large fussy cut floral image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

Adhere a panel of Abigail Rose DSP to the 1 1/2″ right side of the card base. On a panel of Basic White cardstock stamp the sentiment from the Kind & Sincere stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink. Cut the sentiment out using the 2nd largest narrow rectangle die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies. Adhere the sentiment over the floral image using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the thin panel of Basic White cardstock, stamp the sentiment from Kind & Sincere stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink. Cut the sentiment out using the largest narrow banner die from the Stylish Shapes Dies. Adhere the banner sentiment to the right panel using Glue Dots. Add a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

Adhere the 2 panels of Abigail Rose DSP to the inside of the card base. Stamp the small flower image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the bottom of the Basic White panel. Color the image using the Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. Adhered the Basic White panel to a Smoky Slate mat then to the inside of the Pool Party card base.

Stampin' Up! Kind & Sincere Fun Fold 7 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the smaller rose image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image using my Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Abigail Rose DSP to the envelope flap which I had colored the same as the card front image.

*********************************************************************************************************

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.

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! Cottage Rose Birthday

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? Did you all remember to set your clocks back last night before going to bed? I was up and out of bed by 5am this morning (a day I could have slept in a bit) because I thought it was 6am. I have the day off today, so I’m really hoping to get to some serious card making today. I do have a team meeting this afternoon, so I’ll get to see my team members virtually.

I made a quick birthday card today with a set from the Annual Catalog. Sometimes we get so hung up on the current mini catalog we forget about the awesome sets in the Annual Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Birthday 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Cling Stamp Set along with the Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Birthday 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by partially coloring a panel of Abigail Rose DSP using my Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the panel into 1 1 /8″ strips and adhered them to a Crumb Cake mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Birthday 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I stamped the sentiment from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentient out using the frame die from the Meadow Dies. I threaded a piece of Sweet Sorbet 1/8″ Metallic Woven Ribbon through the frame and wrapped it around the card front. I tied a bow on the side of the sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Birthday 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the card front to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I colored a few of the Elegant Faceted Gems using the Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered them to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Birthday 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the rose image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel. I colored the rose using my Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the leaf from the Cottage Rose stamp set image around the rose in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crumb Cake mat then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base.

Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. I hope everyone had a great week and you are looking forward to an even better weekend. I’ll be at work both days this weekend.

I’m sorry I missed my Facebook live this past Wednesday. Something came up last minute and we had to leave the house by 4:30, nothing bad though. So since I couldn’t go live this week, I decided to hold onto the card I was going to make and come up with something else quick. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Fun Fold 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Bundle along with the Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here is a template of my card.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Fun Fold 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

Once I made all my score and cut lines and folded the card, I adhered panels of Abigail Rose DSP to the front and sides of the card base. On a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock, I stamped the large rose image form the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink. I colored the rose using my Watercolor Pencils. I colored the leaves using the Old Olive Watercolor Pencil. For the rose, I first colored it with my White Watercolor Pencil then I went over the highlighted areas with my Flirty Flaming Watercolor Pencil. I cut the rose out using my Cottage Flowers Dies, I also cut the detailed flowers from a panel of Petal Pink cardstock and the detailed leaves from a panel of Old Olive cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Fun Fold 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered the detailed flowers and leaves to the back of the large rose image using Glue Dots. I did leave some of the solid pieces in the detailed flowers. I adhered the rose collage to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Fun Fold 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd smallest die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Fun Fold 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside, I stamped the sentiments from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Abigail Rose DSP. I adhered the stamped panel to a Petal Pink mat and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose Fun Fold 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Old Olive Ink along the bottom front of the envelope. I adhered a panel of Abigail Rose DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Wedding

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends, welcome to the weekend. Does anyone have any fun plans this weekend? I’m working all day today, but tomorrow is our in person quarterly meeting. Alway look forward to our meetings.

Today’s card is another one we made at my Stamp Camp card class this past Tuesday. One of the ladies requested a wedding card, so here’s what I came up with.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Bundle along with the Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper and the Stampin’ Up! Celebrating You Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Abigail Rose DSP to a Smoky Slate card base. I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Basic Borders Dies.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink on the top of the panel. I embossed the panel using the Elegant Eucalyptus 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large rose image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink. I cut the image out using my Cottage Flowers Dies. I adhered the rose to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Using my Clear Wink of Stella, I brushed the entire rose to give it a shimmer. I adhered a Sprig Trinket just under the rose using Glue Dots.

On the inside, I stamped the rose image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrating You stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink over the rose image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Smoky Slate mat and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large rose image from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Abigail Rose 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!!
