Stampin’ Up Friend Like You Tropical Chic For Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  I hope you all have had a great week and are looking forward to the weekend.

Today I have a pretty quick fun fold for you.  I combined the Stampin’ Up Tropical Chic Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up Friend Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set.   Here’s my card.

My colors for my card were inspired by  CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #330.  Here are their colors.

I started with a Night of Navy card base and scored it at 4 1/4″ and 1″.  I folded the card base in half and then folded the 1″ side back.  I took the 1/2″ strip of Whisper White cardstock and adhered it with Snail under the 1″ folded piece.

I cut out a couple of the leaves from the Tropical Dies in Bermuda Bay cardstock and adhered them on top of the 1″ folded edge.  On the small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Friend Like You stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I stamped a couple of the Hibiscus flowers from the Tropical Chic stamp set on the side of the sentiment in Mango Melody Ink.  I stamped a couple more of the flowers from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Mango Melody Ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut them out using them Tropical Dies.  I adhered the cut flowers to the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals hanging off the right side.

I took a piece of the Gold Metallic Edged Ribbon and colored it using my Dark Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I wrapped the ribbon around the card front and tied a knot just above the sentiment.

I took the strip of Mango Melody cardstock and embossed it using the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the strip to the right side of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped a couple more of the hibiscus flowers from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Mango Melody Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped a couple of the leaves from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Bermuda Bay Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Friend Like You stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the hibiscus flowers from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Mango Melody Ink on the card front.  I stamped a couple of the leaves from Tropical Chic stamp set behind the flowers on the envelope front in Bermuda Bay Ink.  I stamped a couple more of the leaves from the Tropical Chic stamp set in Bermuda Bay Ink on 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!!

Subscribe for the August kit from July 11–August 10

What’s the old saying? Variety is the spice of life? At Paper Pumpkin, we like to mix things up and keep our customer’s crafting experience fresh and fun. We plan each kit carefully, allowing them to check as many creative boxes as possible while keeping our projects simple—so they can explore the world of paper crafting with confidence. With this in mind, we are bringing an elegant fall gift packaging kit to Paper Pumpkin fans this August.
Now, it’s no secret that our subscribers love cardmaking. So when we offer treat or gift packaging, you generally like to make a few card alternates with the kit. That’s why THIS month we decided to bring you the best of both worlds with the Gift of Fall Add-On Bundle. This coordinating product will allow you to turn your Gift of Fall gift packaging into cards in an easy and inexpensive way.

  • The August kit includes 6 gift bags and 12 gift tags. To receive this kit you must subscribe by August 10.

  • Once you have completed the August kit, you will have extra kit components so you can easily combine them with the add-on without having to purchase additional kits.
  • Just as you would with any other Stampin’ Up! product, you will need to purchase the add-on bundle via OEX or the online store. You will not be able to add it to a Paper Pumpkin subscription purchase.
  • The price for the add-on bundle is $10.00 usd/$13.00 cad and is available for Paper Pumpkin subscribers only. This add-on is available beginning August 1, while supplies last!
