Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have any plans for the weekend yet? I’ll be working all weekend between both jobs. Today I’m finally going to get to work in my garden. My yard has been sprayed for those annoying bugs, so hopefully I won’t get eaten alive again. I’m very excited about redoing my garden in case you can’t tell.

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! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set along with In Good Taste and Hand-Penned Designer Series Papers for my card today.

My inspiration for today’s card came from my sunflower plants I have growing in my backyard.

I started by stamping the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White Cardstock. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Sunflower Dies. From a panel of Basic White cardstock I cut the middle Scalloped Contour Die. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Through It Together Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom corner of the die. I stamped the larger leaf image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink 3 times. I colored the leaves in using my Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers and cut them out using my Sunflower Dies.

I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the front panel of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sunflower to the scalloped die using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the left side of the panel. I adhered the leaves under the sunflower using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I scored and folded a smaller Highland Heather card base and adhered a panel of Hand-Penned DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Through It Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Highland Heather mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the 3/4″ fold of the small card base behind the layered panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The Highland Heather will tuck behind the scalloped die to hold the card closed. I added a couple Bumblebee Trinkets to my card using Glue Dots.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Hand-Penned 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 this 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.

I’m offering a Designer Series Paper share from the Stampin’ Up! July-December 2021 Mini Catalog and I’d love to have you join!!  I’m placing my share order early on August 3 and I’m going to use the expedited shipping option so I should be able to have the shares cut, bundled and back out to you during the week of August 9.

How my shares work:  I order full packs of all of the Designer Series Papers listed below, I cut them into 6″ x 6″ pieces (or 6″ x 12″ pieces for double shares) and give you one panel of each design from each pack on the list.  I pack up the paper in a cellophane bag and mail it back out to you just as quickly as I can!  Shares give you a good working sample of all of the papers so that you can decide which ones to order in full packs!

Here are the Designer Series Paper Shares that I am offering from the new Mini Catalog!

New Designer Series Paper Share – $25.00 plus $5.00 for 1st Class Mail shipping

Double DSP Share – $50 + $7.75 Shipping by Priority Mail – if you’d like double shares of the designer paper, that’s fine too.  I’ll cut the designer paper sheets into 6×12 so that you’ll be able to get 3 full A2 size card fronts from each sheet (except for the Gingerbread & Peppermint, Cute Halloween and Kraft 6″ × 6″, you’ll get double sheets of those since they’re already precut).

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers 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 Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set for today’s card.

My colors are from the Fab Friday Challenge #216.

I started by adhering a panel of the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I wrapped a piece of the black bakers twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack around the matted panel and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Flirty Flamingo card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink next to the sunflower. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Fresh Freesia 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the top of the panel. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a strip of the Pattern Party Host DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Flirty Flamingo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Pattern Party Host DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers CAS Birthday

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything for Valentine’s Day? I worked all day and came home to my daughter making dinner for us. She made Chicken Parmigiana with a side of Angel Hair and it was delicious.

I have a clean and simple birthday card for you today. Here’s my card.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set for my birthday card.

I started by adhering a panel of Blushing Bride Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Blushing Bride card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I masked the sunflower and stamped the leaf image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set around it in Mossy Meadow Ink. To mask an image, you stamp the image on a sticky note and fussy cut it using your Paper Snips. Adhere the sticky note image over the stamped image and stamp the next image overlapping the sticky note. When you remove the sticky note it looks like the leaves are behind the flower. I colored the leave in using my Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. Since there isn’t a Bumblebee marker, I applied some ink to a Clear Acrylic Block and used my Water Painters filled with alcohol to color my sunflower. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampn’ Seal.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink. Using my Paper Snips I cut the ends of the strip on an angle. I adhered a strip of Bumblebee cardstock, which I cut one end on an angle using my Paper Snips, to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink towards the bottom of the panel. I colored the image in the same as I did for the card front image. I adhered a strip of Subtle DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mossy Meadow mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card front. I adhered a panel of Subtle DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflower Easel Birthday for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Are you ready for the weekend? It’s starting to feel like fall here.  It’s been really cool at night and in the mid to upper 70’s during the day, perfect walking or yard work weather.

I’ve made another easel card for you today.  Now I know why my team member Mary loves these so much.  They are so much fun to design.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Paper Players Challenge #508.  Here are their colors.

I started by scoring and folding a Blackberry Bliss easel at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″ and adhering the 2 3/4″ section to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Cling Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the leaves and the stem in using my Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Four Seasons Floral Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the top of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the small sunflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I brushed some Clear Wink of Stella on the center of the sunflower go give it a little shimmer.  I fussy cut the sunflower out using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the stem using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a couple of the leafy stems out from the Sunflower Dies in Pretty Peacock cardstock and adhered them to the stem using Glue Dots.  I tied a small bow using the 3/8″ Embroidered Ribbon and adhered it to the stems using a Glue Dot.

I adhered the artwork to the easel, just adding Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the bottom section of the easel.  I colored a few Pearl Basic Jewels with my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Marker and adhered them to the card front and the card base.

For the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set towards the top of a Whisper White panel in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off twice, over the sentiment.  I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the flower center.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a scalloped oval out of a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock using the Layering Ovals Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the Pretty Peacock scallop oval using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the matted sentiment to the Whisper White panel, where I wanted the easel to set, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small sunflower from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Cajun Craze and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper 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! Happy Day Sunflower for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Have you made plans for the weekend yet?

I have a Double Z-Fold card for you today using one of my favorite sets from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My inspiration is from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #346.  Here is their inspiration board.

I started by  a panel of Flowers For Every Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the front panel of the card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered another panel of Flowers for Every Season DSP on the front section of the small Z-Fold card using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a panel of Flowers for Every Season DSP on the back panel of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the small Z-Fold card base to the large Z-Fold card base using Tear & Tape.  The longer section of the small Z-Fold is adhered to the front panel of the large card base and the small section is adhered to the back section.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it to the front panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large sunflower from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink.  I stamped 3 of the larger leaves from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I colored the sunflower in using my Water Painter, filled with alcohol, and Bumblebee Ink on a clear block.  I colored the sunflower center in using my Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends Markers and I colored the leaves in using my Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the flower and leaves out using the coordinating dies from the Sunflower Dies.  I adhered the sunflower to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals, hanging off the left side a little.  I trimmed the sunflower using my Paper Snips.  I cut the leaf vein from the Sunflower Dies out of a panel of Just Jade cardstock and adhered them to the solid leaves using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the leaves under the sunflower using Glue Dots.  I added a few Bumblebee 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I adhered a Just Jade panel of cardstock to the back section of the small Z-Fold card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set on the Whisper White panel in Just Jade Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it to the Just Jade panel using Stampin’ Seal.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small sunflower from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Water Painter with the Bumblebee Ink and my Cinnamon Cider and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of Flowers for Every Season 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! Celebrate Sunflowers Together

Good Saturday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s weekend started off?  I’m at work today, but I have off tomorrow.  My daughter will be coming home tomorrow from house, cat & dog sitting.  I’ll be happy to have her home again.

For today’s card I went a little out of my comfort zone a little and tried something a little different.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Freshly Made Sketches  Challenge #449.  Here is their sketch.

My colors are from As You See It Sunflower Skies Challenge #232.  Here are their colors.

I also joined in with Double “D” Challenge.  Their theme is Sunflowers.

I started by adhering a panel of Bermuda Bay from the Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Bermuda Bay card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the small sunflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I colored the flower in using my Water Painter with Crushed Curry Ink and my Bermuda Bay, Cajun Craze and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Triangle Dies.  I cut another triangle the same size from a panel of Cajun Craze cardstock.  I stamped the Cajun Craze triangle using the splatter image from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink.  I stamped a small panel of Crushed Curry cardstock with the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink and cut it out using a smaller triangle from the Stitched Triangles Dies.  I adhered the Cajun Craze triangle to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the sunflower triangle over the Cajun Craze triangle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the small Crushed Curry triangle to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink.  I sponged the edges using my Sponge Dauber with Crushed Curry Ink and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Crushed Curry Playing With Patterns Resin Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of the panel.  I adhered a strip of the Brights 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Crushed Curry mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bermuda Bay card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated  a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set on the envelope front and flap.  I colored the images in using my Water Painters with Crushed Curry Ink and my Bermuda Bay, Cajun Craze and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Partial Die Cut

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re halfway through the week and on the downhill to the weekend.  Hope you are starting to make some plans for something fun.  We had an awesome time at the beach yesterday.  The water was beautiful, it was a bit hazy, but still a wonderful day.  I went for my usual walk along the water looking for shells and sea glass.  Our day got cut a little short by a thunderstorm that came rolling in really fast.  Everyone got called out of the water as soon as the lightening and thunder started.  It was a great day spent with my daughter, nephew, niece and her 2 boys.

For today I tried something new called the Partial Die Cut card.  I’m really liking this and can’t wait to try it again with different dies.  Here’s my card for today.

I played along with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #284.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Bumblebee cardstock to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal.  On the Bumblebee card base I stamped the large sunflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I placed the matted panel over part of the sunflower and lined up the die from the Sunflower Dies.  I tacked it on the panel, so it wouldn’t move, using washi tape.  I cut the 1/2 of sunflower out of the panel, then embossed the panel using my Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder.

I adhered a strip of the Flowers For Every Season Designer Series paper to the left side of the card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I cut the sentiment into a banner using the Triple Banner Punch.  I cut a strip of Just Jade cardstock into a banner using the Triple Banner Punch and adhered the sentiment to it using Stampin’ Seal.  I cut the banner down to 3 1/2″.

I adhered the matted embossed panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals, making sure the sunflower lined up with the die cut.  I adhered the sentiment banner to the top of the panel using Stampin Dimensionals.  I added a few Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a strip of the Flowers For Every Season DSP to the side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Just Jade 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 Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped part of the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Flowers For Every Season 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! Framed Flowers for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday!!  How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is upon us, do you have any plans?  I had a wonderful day at the beach yesterday.  It looked a little iffy when we first got there with the fog and clouds, but it turned out to be an absolutely gorgeous day.  The sun was shining and the water was perfect.  By the afternoon we couldn’t even sit at our blanket the sun got so hot, so we went in the ocean for over an hour.  The waves were awesome, I’m guessing because of the storm we are supposed to get today.  I only came home with a little sunburn (ok, maybe a lot) and blistered feet because of the sand being so darn hot.  The beach is my happy place and now today it’s back to reality.

I have a corner flip fold card for you today.  Here’s my card.

I played along with The Paper Players Challenge #498.  Here is their Theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Flowers For Every Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Seal.  I then cut my card front using my Paper Trimmer.  I placed the card front bottom edge down, at the 3″ mark on my trimmer and cut from the 2 1/2″ mark up to the 4 7/8″ mark.  I turned my card base a 1/4 turn (so the outside edge was down) and place it at the 3″ mark again on my trimmer.  I cut from the 3″ mark down to the 5/8″ mark.  I pushed the cut piece through from the bottom and flipped it around so the inside was now on the outside.

I stamped the frame image from the Stampin’ Up! Framed For You Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a Cinnamon Cider panel.  I cut the frame out using the largest and 5th from largest squares from my Layering Squares Dies.  I adhered a small panel of Flowers For Every Season  DSP to the flipped corner using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the frame over the DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added Antique Corners from the Antique Corners & Slides Elements to the 4 corners of the frame using Glue Dots.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Hippo & Friends Dies.  I adhered a piece of Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In-Color 1/4″ Ribbon to the bottom of the card front using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the sentiment  and the inner liner which shows through to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf images from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Just Jade Ink around the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf images from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Just Jade Ink along the bottom front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Flowers For Every Season 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! Sunflower Birthday for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Is anyone doing anything for the weekend?  I’m working Saturday, but as of now I don’t have to go in on Sunday, YAY!  It’s been a long couple days for me here.  My daughter went away with her friend and family, so I haven’t had my side kick around.  Her and I do almost everything together.  I don’t know what I will do when she moves out for good (more crafting I’m guessing).  I can’t complain, I don’t know any 22 year old’s that want to spend time with their parents like she does.

For today’s card I tried another new fun fold to me.  It’s a quarter fold card and it’s really a lot easier that it looks.  I had this card done so quick I had to double check I was doing it correctly.  Here’s my card for today.

This card uses 2 – 1/2 sheets of cardstock.  I started by scoring a 4 1/4″ X 11″ Bumble Bee card base at 2 3/4″ and 8 1/4″.  I then scored an 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ Bumble Bee card base at 2 1/8″ on each end.  So you are starting with 2 Gate Fold cards.

I adhered the 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ card base inside the 4 1/4″ X 11″ card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue as pictured above.

I cut 4 pieces of Flowers For Every Season 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper (measurements below) and adhered them to the Bumble Bee card base, while the card was closed to make sure I got them in the correct place, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The DSP panels are 2 different sizes, so do a dry fit to make sure you put the correct piece on the correct card base panel. Directions below on how to close the card.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the small sunflower image from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Bumble Bee Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink above the sunflower.  I cut the image out using the 2nd die from the Hippo & Friends Dies.  I don’t usually buy dies without the stamp set, but this die set is awesome.  There are so many framing dies I just had to have it.  I adhered the die cut sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals just on the top left side.  You only want the Dimensionals there because of opening and closing the card.  I added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Best Year stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in the 2 corners of the panel in Bumble Bee Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

This card makes a great Gift Card holder too.  Once you fold it up, the gift card is on the inside and can’t fall out.  Now onto how to fold the card.

1 you fold in the left panel.

You then fold the top panel down.  It’s just like folding a box up.

You fold the right side over, tucking it under the sentiment.

You fold the bottom panel up and tuck it under the sentiment and under the right side like you would fold a box up.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Bumble Bee Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of Flowers for Every Season 6 X 6 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! Hello Sunflower Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?

I have another sneak peek for you today.  I don’t know which is my favorite so far.  I just love all the new sets I’ve gotten.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by embossing a Cinnamon Cider card front using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered a panel of the new 2020-2022 In-Color Designer Series Paper in Bumble Bee on top of the panel.  I wrapped a piece of the new Cinnamon Cider 1/4″ In-Color Ribbon around the center of the panel.  I adhered the card front to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the small sunflower and small leaf images from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using my Sunflower Dies.  I cut the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies from a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the sunflower to the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added the leaves under the sunflower using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a very thin strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I sponged the edges lightly using my Sponge Dauber and the Early Espresso Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the artwork using a Glue Dot and Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a few Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Mango Melody Ink over the sentiment, stamping off twice.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Bumble Bee mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the small sunflower image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the front of the envelope.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 DSP in Bumble Bee to the envelope flap.

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