Stampin’ Up! Somebody’s Blessing for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  The weekend is here once again.  How was everyone’s week?  Hope you had a productive one and are ready for some fun this weekend.

For today I have another new to me fun fold.  I really like this one and I can see a lot more cards like this in my future.  Here’s my card.

This card stands so nicely on it’s own.  I started with a Mint Macaron card base and scored it at 2 1/4″, 3 5/8″, 7 3/8″ and 8 3/4″.  Once you make the folds it will look like this.

Once I made the folds I adhered 2 panels of Best Dressed 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to 2 Basic Gray mats using Snail.  I adhered the matted panels to the 2 sides of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the single woman image from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Moments Cling Stamp Set on the bottom of the panel in Basic Gray Ink.  I stamped the small flower image from the Beautiful Moments stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on either side of the larger image.  I stamped the bird image from the Beautiful Moments stamp set twice on either side of the woman image.  I stamped the 2 butterfly images from the Beautiful Moments stamp set in Basic Gray Ink just above the flower images. I colored the images in using my Blackberry Bliss, Crumb Cake, Ivory, Mint macaron, Old Olive, Purple Posy and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Moments stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on the top of the panel.  I adhered the artwork to a Basic Gray mat using Snail and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the back of the card base I adhered 2 panels of Best Dressed 6 X 6 DSP to 2 Basic Gray mats using Snail and then to the back 2 sides of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a Whisper White panel I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink towards the top of the panel.  I stamped the small floral image from the Beautiful Moments stamp set in Basic Gray Ink along the bottom of the panel going completely across.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Gray mat using Snail and then to the backside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a couple Purple Posy 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dots on either side of the sentiment.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the single woman image from the Beautiful Moments stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the bird image from the Beautiful Moments stamp set in Basic Gray Ink above the woman image.  I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Mint Macaron, Old Olive and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Best Dressed 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.  Although it doesn’t look it, this card fits perfectly in the standard A2 envelope once it is flattened.

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

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Moments Birthday for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month and you know what that means, Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Mary Deatherage’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Birthday”. We can interpret this any way that we’d like.

For my card today I used one of my absolute favorite sets from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge #332.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Purple Posy card front using the Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the 2 pieces of  Best Dressed Designer Series Paper to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail.  I embossed a Mint Macaron banner using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the back of the Mint Macaron mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.   On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Basic Grey Ink.  I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Mint Macaron and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered the artwork to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail.  I threaded a piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine through a  2018-2020 In-Color Button and tied a bow.  I adhered a piece of Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon to the back of the button using a Glue Dot and then to the artwork using another Glue Dot.

I adhered the artwork to the small card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I then adhered the small card front to the large card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Basic Grey Ink.  I sponged the edges using my Stamping Sponges and Mint Macaron Ink.  I adhered the sentiment using a Stampin’ Dimensional to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Basic Grey Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the image from the Beautiful Moments stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink, stamping off once, on top of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the images from the Beautiful Moments stamp set in Basic Grey Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Mint Macaron and Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Best Dressed DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Poppy Moments

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week starting off?  Tonight is my Stamp Camp Class so I have another pretty easy card since I’m not sure what kind of stampers the new ladies are.  Here’s my card.

I started by using the splatter image from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set and stamped the Pool Party card front using Pool Party Ink.  I stamped the 2 poppy images and the leaf image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using my Painted Labels Dies.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies making sure that the sentiment was near the top of the circle.  I cut the swirly circle  out of Sahara Sand cardstock using the Painted Labels Dies.

I adhered the sentiment to the center of the swirly circle using Snail.  I adhered the flowers and leaves to the bottom of the sentiment using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and I adhered the card front to the Sahara Sand card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Love What You Do Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the poppy  and leaf image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I colored the image in using my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the splatter image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Pool Party Ink all around the edges of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pool Party mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the splatter image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Pool Party Ink all around the front of the envelope.  I stamped the poppy and leaf images from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope flap.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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