Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Hello Fun Fold Card

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How has everyone’s week started off? Hope you are having a productive one.

Today’s card is another one that we made at our team meeting on Sunday. This card was designed by Mary Deatherage. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Beauty of Friendship Bundle along with the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by folding the Old Olive card base in half as a normal book fold card. I then folded the front panel back on the score line. I adhered the small section together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered 2 panels of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to Misty Moonlight mats using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the 2 panels to the card base using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the splotch image from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink, stamping off once, on the small Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Beautiful Trees Dies, I cut the large tree image from a panel of the Beauty of The Earth DSP and trimmed the bottom with my Paper Snips so that it would fit on the card front. I cut the solid tree top die from a panel of Old Olive cardstock. I cut the detailed treetop die from a panel of the Beauty of The Earth DSP. I cut the bird die from a scrap of Misty Moonlight cardstock. I first adhered the solid treetop to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the tree trunk die using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the detailed tree die on top using small amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a small panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out using my Ornate Frames Dies. I threaded a piece of White Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack through the tag and tied a small bow. I adhered the tag to the treetop using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the bird to the tag using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Bumblebee Trinkets to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic Whtie panel. I stamped the small tree trunk image on the side of the panel in Early Espresso Ink. I stamped the small solid treetop image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Old Olive Ink. I stamped the detailed treetop image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink. I stamped the splotch image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink, stamping off once, around the tree. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and then to the inside of the Old Olive card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set the same as I did for the card on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked the card designed by Mary and will give it a try. This is another super simple fun fold card that can be used in many ways. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Thinking of You

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Has anyone gone to get their tree yet? My husband went on Saturday and it’s sitting outside until we’re ready to set it up. Unfortunately, my house isn’t fully decorated yet. At the rate I’m going, I’m not sure it’s going to get finished either.

Today’s card is one that we made at our team meeting yesterday. This card was designed by Tara Carpenter. There were 3 of us that presented and all 3 of us designed a fun fold card without knowing what the other was doing. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by folded a 5 1/2″ X 6 1/2″ Mossy Meadow card base at 4 1/4″. I scored the 4 3/8″ X 4 1/4″ panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock at 1/4″.

I adhered a panel of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of Gold 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon around the card base and secured it with Tear & Tape on the back.

I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the small Mossy Meadow panel using Stampin’ Seal. I folded the panel of the score line and adhered it to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Tear & Tape. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the small tree image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the tree top image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink on top of the branches. I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink across the bottom of the tree. I cut the image out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I adhered the die cut to the small panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Gold Metallic Pearls to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink to the left of a Basic White panel. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the right side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card designed by Tara. This was a very easy fun fold that went together really quick, and you can do a lot with it. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Fun Fold Sympathy

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the weekend. Sorry I missed yesterday, but I took a bit of a turn for the worst with whatever this is that I have. It started as pneumonia, then I got a sinus infection on top of that. The whole thing is really affecting my asthma so they are trying one more med before hospitalizing me. I’m really hoping this med works. So, since I’m down for the count I won’t be working this weekend. I really prefer to be healthy when I have a weekend off. I’m hoping to still be able to attend our in person team meeting Sunday, but we’ll see how I’m doing. If I can’t go in person, I’ll still be able to attend via zoom.

With that being said, I missed my Fun Fold Friday, so I thought I’d bring it to you today. This is actually the card I designed for our team meeting. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set and the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the small Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Seal. From a panel of Basic White cardstock I cut the tree from the Beautiful Trees Dies and adhered it to the small card front using small amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut the 2 birds from a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock using my Beautiful Trees Dies and adhered them to the tree using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the sentiment out using the Beautiful Trees Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I stamped the tree image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the small Misty Moonlight card base.

I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the front of the Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the small card front to the larger card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Night of Navy Ink. I stamped the tree image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Beauty of The Earth 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!!

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. We have another new hopper with us starting this week Please help me welcome Terry Lynn Bright to our Thursday Blog Hop, YAY!! If you are hopping over from Karen Finkle’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Theme Challenge. I can’t wait to see what everyone has created this week. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Theme.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Bundle, the Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here is our theme for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to a Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a small panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the small matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped 3 of the leaf images from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Cling Stamp Set, 1 in Bumblebee, 1 in Pumpkin Pie and 1 in Real Red Ink. I cut the leave out using my Intricate Leaves Dies. I cut the coordinating detailed leaves from panels of Bumblebee, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red cardstock using my Intricate Leaves Dies. I adhered the stamped leaves. to the top of the detailed leaves using Glue Dots. I adhered the leaves to the top of the small layered panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a multi loop bow using the Misty Moonlight and Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it to the top of the leaves using a Glue Dot.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the panel. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Cling Stamp Set on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf images from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set around the sentiment in Bumblebee, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red Inks. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leaf images from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set on the envelope front in Bumblebee, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red Inks. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkin Picture This

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? It was a gorgeous fall weekend here, blue skies and in the 70’s.

Today’s card is all about Fall!! It’s that time of year where the pumpkins are ready to be picked and the leaves are changing. I used one of my favorite fall sets from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog. Here’s my card for today.


I used the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkin Cling Stamp Set along with the Harvest Meadow and Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Papers for my card today.

I joined in with the TGIF Challenge #335 this week with their inspiration photo.

I started by adhering a panel of Harvest Meadow DSP to a Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP using the Picture This Dies. I place a panel of Very Vanilla card stock under the die and lightly traced the rectangles so I knew where I could stamp.

Using my Pretty Pumpkins stamp set, I stamped the 2 pumpkin vine images on the top of the panel, the sentiment in the center and the pumpkin trio on the bottom in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Cajun Craze, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. Once I colored all the images in I erased the pencil drawn lines.

I adhered the die cut panel to the Very Vanilla panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock. I stamped the pumpkin trio image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Very Vanilla mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the pumpkin and vine images from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set on the envelope front and colored them in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Seasons of Fun for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Theme Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Theme.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Seasons of Fun Host Cling Stamp Set along with the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Our Theme this week is Autumn/Harvest.

I started by adhering a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal then to a Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the fall image from the Seasons of Fun stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Basic Black, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, Cinnamon Cider, Ivory, Misty Moonlight, Night of Navy and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the 5th largest Stitched Rectangle Dies. The die wasn’t the size that I wanted, so I cut the top half, moved the die to the size I wanted lining up the stitches, turned the image and cut the bottom half. I adhered the artwork to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal then to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using my Playful Alphabet Dies, I cut the letters from a panel of Cajun Craze and Mossy Meadow cardstocks. I adhered the letters together making a shadow effect using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the letters to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink. I stamped the large splotch image from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Cling Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment . I stamped the small trio of leaves image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the corners of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small leaf image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of The Season Bundle for my card today along with the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper and the Cork Specialty Paper.

I started by adhering a panel of the Cork Specialty Paper to a Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut a panel of Cajun Craze cardstock using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and embossed it using the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. I sponge some Cajun Craze Ink on the embossed panel using my Stamping Sponge. I adhered the embossed panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut out 2 of the swirly wreaths using the Seasonal Swirls Dies, 1 in Gold Metallic Specialty Paper and the other in Early Espresso cardstock. I cut multiple leaves from scraps of Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Succulent cardstocks. I cut the leaves and adhered them to the Early Espresso wreath using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Gold wreath to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the Early Espresso wreath over the Gold wreath using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut 3 of the pumpkins from the Seasonal Swirls Dies and adhered them to the wreath using Glue Dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of The Season Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Ornate Frames Dies. I made a multiloop bow from Linen Thread and tied it with a piece of White Bakers Twine, from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack, which I colored using my Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Marker. I adhered the bow to the wreath using a Glue Dot and adhered the sentiment under the bow using a Glue Dot and Stampin’ Dimensional.

On the inside I adhered 2 panels of Cajun Craze cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. For the insert I used a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP. I scored the panel first in half then diagonally from corner to corner both ways. The center half score line I folded as a mountain fold and the corner to corner score lines as valley folds. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card using Tear and Tape on the sides of the panel.

This is how the card will look from a top view. The top and bottom portion of the DSP will be the mountain folds.

I cut 2 of the largest triangles from the Stitched Triangle Dies from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Sparkle of The Season stamp set on the left triangle in Cajun Craze Ink. I stamped the branch/leaf image from the Sparkle of The Season stamp set in Bumblebee, Cherry Cobbler and Pumpkin Pie Inks, stamping off once on both of the triangles. I adhered the triangles to the 2 sides of the DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Beauty of The Earth DSP to the bottom front of the envelope. I stamped the branch/leaves image from the Sparkle of The Season stamp set in Bumblebee and Cherry Cobbler Inks. I adhered a panel of the Beauty of The Earth 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. If you do CASE this card, please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under the post.

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends! Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Here is my card using this weeks Sketch.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Bundle along with the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here’s our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the bottom of the rectangle. I stamped the leafy image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Bumblebee Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the side of the sentiment. I stamped the floral leaf image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the other side of the sentiment. On a scrap of Basic White cardstock I stamped the bird image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink and cut it out using the Beautiful Leaves Dies.

I adhered the stitched rectangle to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of Misty Moonlight/Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack around the top of the layered panel twice and tied a bow. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the bird to the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leafy image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Bumblebee Ink, stamping off once, on the side of the panel. I adhered a strip of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the leafy image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Bumblebee Ink on the envelope 3 times without reinking the stamp. I stamped the bird image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the envelope flap.

Today’s card uses a set from the new catalog. I think it’s one of my favorites. This is also another one of the cards we will be making tomorrow night at my class. One of the ladies asked if we could make something fall with this stamp set. I love when they give me ideas of what they want. Here’s my card for today.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate With Flowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the side of the panel. I stamped the bottom image of the girl from the Delivering Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink next to the sentiment. I stamped the top image on top of the bottom image, lining them up, in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images in using my Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Ivory, Misty Moonlight and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers. I also using my Bumblebee Stampin’ Write Marker. I adhered the artwork to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.
