Stampin’ Up Above The Clouds Fun Fold Card

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  Welcome to Fun Fold Friday.   I’ve made a Corner Flip Fun Fold card for you today.  Here’s my card.

My card today joined in with Global Design Project Theme Challenge #195.  I didn’t even see this challenge until after my card was done.  Here is their theme for the week.

I started with a Thick Whisper White card base.  After scoring it at the 4 1/4″ mark,  I slid the end of the card to the 3″ mark on my trimmer.  The 8 1/2″ side should be up against the bottom edge.  I placed the cutting blade at the 2 1/2″ mark and cut to the 4 7/8″ mark.  I then turned the card with the 5 1/2″ side against the bottom edge and placed the long edge at the 3″ mark.  I placed the cutting blade at the 3″ mark and cut to the 5/8″ mark.  I turned the cut edge, which is in the middle of the card front, in from the bottom and brought it up to the top and using my Bone Folder gave a good press on the folded edges.

After flipping the cut piece, I adhered a panel of Night of Navy of Navy and Mango Melody to the turned panel.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the cluster of clouds from the Stampin’  Up Above The Clouds Photopolymer Stamp Set in Seaside Spray Ink.  I then stamped the cluster of hot air balloons from the Above The Clouds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the 2 large hot air balloons from the Above The Clouds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and punched them out using the Hot Air Balloon Punch.  I colored all the balloons in using my Call Me Clover, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Night of Navy, Poppy Parade and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork panel to the card front using Snail.  I adhered the 2 larger hot air balloons to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a scrap piece of Crumb Cake cardstock I stamped the balloon basket from the Above The Clouds stamp set in Soft Suede Ink twice and punched them out using the Hot Air Balloon Punch.  I adhered them using a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional to the bottom of the larger balloons.

I stamped the clouds from the Above The Clouds stamp set all around the card base in Seaside Spray Ink stamping off once.  I stamped a couple of the birds from the Above The Clouds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the card base.  On the bottom of the card base I stamped the sentiment from Above The Clouds stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with Clear Stampin’ Emboss  Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.  It[s very hard to see, but I also stamped a few of the smaller balloons from the Above The Clouds stamp set in VersaMark Ink on either side of the sentiment.  I sprinkled them with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.

For the inside I took a panel of Night of Navy cardstock and using VersaMark Ink I stamped the smaller hot air balloons from the Above The Clouds stamp set all around.  I sprinkled the panel with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the Night of Navy panel to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a Whisper White panel, I stamped the sentiment from Above The Clouds stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center.  I stamped the clouds from the Above The Clouds stamp set around on the panel in Seaside Spray Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the small hot air balloons and the birds from the Above The Clouds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I colored the balloons in the same as I did for the card front.  To adhered the Whisper White panel so that it doesn’t show when the card is closed, I placed it behind the folded card front and folded the card back to it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the clouds from Above The Clouds stamp set all around the front of the envelope and on the bottom of the envelope flap in Seaside Spray Ink stamping off once. I stamped the birds and the smaller hot air balloons from the Above The Clouds stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope flap and colored them in the same as I did for the card front.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you enjoyed today’s fun fold card and will give it a try.  I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Over The Moon Birthday Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything exciting?  Hope all the dads out there enjoyed the day.

For today’s card I used the adorable new Stampin’ Up Over The Moon Cling Stamp Set from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  My son’s birthday is this week.  My little preemie will be turning 24 and he’s over 6′ now.  He definitely takes after me with the height (not really).  Well, he hates puns, so that means I have to find stamp sets that have some kind of pun in them and this one fit perfectly.  Here’s my card.

My card for today also played along with a few challenges.  First off is Fab Friday challenge #165.  Here is their sketch.

Next I played along with Paper Craft Crew challenge #340.  Here is their theme.  I’ve known people that have had cows for pets.

I also played along with Color My Heart Color Dare #347.  Here are their colors.

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped one of the cow images from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the cow in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Using the Masking Technique, I masked the cow with a Post-It note that I had stamped and fussy cut the cow image from.  I then stamped the mountains from the Stampin’ Up Waterfront Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink.  I stamped the sand image and dirt image from the Waterfront stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink also.  I stamped the clouds from the Stampin’ Up Above The Clouds Photopolymer Stamp Set in Seaside Spray Ink above the mountain image.  I stamped the sentiment from the Over The Moon stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink on the card front.

I adhered the artwork to a Blueberry Bushel mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to another mat of Seaside Spray cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a strip of Burlap Ribbon to the bottom of the Thick Whisper White card base using Snail.  I adhered the double matted artwork to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped another one of the cow images from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamping off 4 times so that I got a very light image.  I stamped the clouds from the Above The Clouds stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Over The Moon stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink.  I stamped the Happy Birthday from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthday’s Cling Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel just below the cow image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blueberry Bushel mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped one of the cow images from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the front of the envelope.  I colored the cow in the same as I did for the card.  I stamped the clouds from the Above The Clouds stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped another one of the cow images from the Over The Moon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope flap and colored it in the same as I did for the card.

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