Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Home Fun Fold

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? Hope you are able to plan some fun activities. I get to attend my virtual monthly team meeting today. It doesn’t matter in person or virtual, they are always fun.

I have a quick fun fold card for you today using 2 of the Sale-a-bration items that are available now. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Home Sale-a-bration Cling Stamp Set along with the Beautifully Penned Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My design is from Try Stampin’ On Tuesday Challenge #518.

I also played along with Just Us Girls Trend Week Challenge #597.

I started by adhering a panel of Beautifully Penned SAB DSP to a Basic Black card base using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a strip of the Beautifully Penned SAB DSP to the side of the Basic Black card base using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of black twine from the Bakers Twine Essentials Pack around the side of the card front and tied a bow.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the large image from the Feels Like Home SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a small strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Feels Like Home SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. Using my Banners Pick A Punch I made it into a banner. I cut a strip of Basic Black cardstock into a panel using the Banners Pick A Punch. I adhered the sentiment to the Basic Black banner using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a Black Matte Dot to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment, flowerpot and vine images from the Feels Like Home SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower pot image from the Feels Like Home SAB stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Beautifully Penned SAB DSP on the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. The stamp set and Designer Series Paper are both Sale-a-bration items that can be earned FREE with a qualifying order. I’d be happy to help you earn these items, just ask me how. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Home 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. I have a little sneak peek for you today coming from the August-December 2021 Mini Catalog that will be available August 3rd. Here is my card using this weeks Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Feels Like Home Cling Stamp Set which will be a Sale-A-Bration item starting on August 3rd.

I started by stamping the large image from the Feels Like Home stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the image our using my Stitched Rectangle Dies. I had to adjust the size of the die by cutting part of the image, turning the panel around and moving the die matching up the stitching and cutting the other half. I adhered the artwork to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal. I stamped the small flowerpot image from the Feels Like Home stamp set on the panel of Basic White cardstock in Crumb Cake Ink. I colored the image in using my Highland Heather and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the image using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the bottom of the layered panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On another panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Feels Like Home stamp set in Crumb cake Ink. I tore the edges of the paper and sponged the rough edges using my Stamping Sponge and Crumb Cake Ink. I embossed a Crumb Cake card front using the new Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder (available August 3rd) and adhered it to a Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the sentiment panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few of the new Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set on a Basic White panel. I tore the edges of the panel and sponged the edges using my Stamping Sponge and Crumb Cake Ink. I stamped the flowerpot image from the Feels Like Home stamp set on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Highland Heather and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Crumb Cake mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Crumb Cake card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the larger image from the Feels Like Home stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the small flowerpot image from the Feels Like Home stamp set on the envelope flap. I colored the image with my Highland Heather and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.
