Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s Thanksgiving? Did everyone make sure to wear stretchy pants before sitting down for dinner? Ours was very nice and quiet and I didn’t overeat. Today is one of those days I DO NOT go out shopping. I pack up all my normal everyday decorations, move my furniture around for the holidays and start bringing my hundreds of boxes of Christmas decorations out of my attic. I used to take the weekend off from work to do all my decorating but being in retail it’s hard to take both days off, so I get just about everything done in 1 day.

I have a quick fun fold for you today using another one of my favorite sets. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets Bundle along with the Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper. Don’t forget that this DSP is only available while supplies last. The beautiful Gold Swirls have already sold out.

I started scoring and folding a Balmy Blue card base at 1 1/4″ & 5 1/2″. I adhered a panel of Fitting Florets DSP to an Evening Evergreen mat. I adhered the layered panel to the left front panel of the Balmy Blue card base.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Framed Florets stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink. I cut the sentiment out using the Lasting Label Punch. From a panel of White Glimmer paper from the Red & White 6 X 6 Glimmer Paper, I cut out 2 sprigs using the Framed Florets Dies. Using my Blending Brush, I added some Evening Evergreen Ink. I cut 5 of the leave from the Framed Florets Dies from the colored panel. I adhered the sprigs to the card front. I adhered the sentiment over the sprigs using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the leaves under the sentiment. I added a few Festive Pearls to the card front.

I adhered a panel of Fitting Florets DSP to an Evening Evergreen mat. I adhered the layered panel to the narrow-folded right side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Framed Florets stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the flower and leaf images from the Framed Florets stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink by the sentiment. I colored the images in using my Balmy Blue and Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat then to the inside of the Balmy Blue card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower and leaf images from the Framed Florets stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the Envelope front and colored them with my Balmy Blue and Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Fitting Florets DSP to the envelope flap.

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

*********************************************************************************************************

In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.

Stampin’ Up! Lovely & Lasting Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. I hope everyone’s week has started out good.

I have a quick and easy card for you today using a bundle from the Annual Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Lovely & Lasting Birthday 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Lovely & Lasting Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Charming Sentiments Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Lovely In Linen Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Stampin' Up! Lovely & Lasting Birthday 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by cutting a panel of Night of Navy cardstock using the Delicate Edge Dies. I adhered the die cut edge to the back of a panel of Lovely in Linen DSP. I adhered another strip of Night of Navy cardstock to the opposite side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Pale Papaya card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Lovely & Lasting Birthday 3 creativestampingdesigns.com

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the frame image from the Lovely & Lasting stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely & Lasting stamp set in Night of Navy Ink inside the frame. I punched the sentiment out using my Lasting Lable Punch.

Stampin' Up! Lovely & Lasting Birthday 4 creativestampingdesigns.com

I adhered a piece of Pale Papaya 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon to the card front using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the punched sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Solid Faceted Gems to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Lovely & Lasting Birthday 5 creativestampingdesigns.com

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the scroll image from the Lovely & Lasting stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink above the sentiment. I stamped the small flower image from the Lovely & Lasting stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on the top corners of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Night of Navy mat and then to the inside of the Pale Papaya card base.

Stampin' Up! Lovely & Lasting Birthday 6 creativestampingdesigns.com

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the scroll image from the Lovely & Lasting stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the small flower image from the Lovely & Lasting stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink also on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Lovely in Linen DSP to the envelope flap.
