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! Merriest Moments for Fun Fold Friday Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Does anyone have plans for the weekend? I’ll be at work all day Saturday, but I have off on Sunday, YAY!!!

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! Merriest Moments Bundle, the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of The Season Bundle along with the Ever Eden Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering panels of the Ever Eden DSP to Brushed Metallic cardstock mats. I adhered the layered panels to the Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

From a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock I cut the largest leaf frame using my Eden Dies. I cut the pine bough wreath from a panel of Soft Succulent cardstock using the Seasonal Swirls Dies. I cut the Evening Evergreen frame down until I had the wreath that I wanted. I adhered the 2 halves together using Glue Dots. I adhered the pine bough wreath on top of the leaf wreath using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped 2 of the smallest poinsettia image from the Stampin’ Up! Merriest Moments Photopolymer Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink. I cut the images out using my Merriest Frames Dies. I stamped 3 of the pinecone image from the Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of The Season Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink and cut them out using my Seasonal Swirls Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on the Basic White panel and cut the sentiment out using my Ornate Frames Dies. I adhered the poinsettias together using a Glue Dot and then to the wreath using a Glue Dot. I adhered the pinecones to the wreath using Glue Dots. I adhered the wreath to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the Gold 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon and adhered it to the wreath using a Glue Dot. I twisted the tails of the bow and adhered them down using Glue Dots. I added 3 of the smallest pearls from the Pearl Basic Jewels to the center of the poinsettia.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the pine bough image from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the top of the panel. I stamped the small poinsettia image from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the pine images from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on the top of the envelope front and the larger poinsettia image from the Merriest Moments stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the bottom front. I adhered a panel of Ever Eden DSP to the envelope flap.

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! Words of Cheer Bundle for my card today.

Our theme this week is ‘Christmas’.

My colors are from Colours & Sketches Challenge #444.

I started by embossing a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock using the Wintry 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Real Red card front. I adhered the card front to a Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Words of Cheer Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Real Red and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Marker. I cut the image out using my Christmas Cheer Dies. I adhered the die cut image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

From a panel of Basic White cardstock I cut the detailed word image using my Christmas Cheer Dies. From a panel of Real Red cardstock I cut the letters from the Christmas Cheer Dies. I adhered the letters to the detailed word die using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Words of Cheer stamp set in Real Red Ink and cut the sentiment out using my Ornate Frames Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Shaded Spruce Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front and a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the center of the flowers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Words of Cheer stamp set in Real Red Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the large floral image from the Words of Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in the same as I did for the card front. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Real Red mat and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large floral image from the Words of Cheer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card.

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 used the Stampin’ Up! In Your Words Cling Stamp Set along with the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper and Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Cling Stamp Set for my card today.

This is our sketch for this week.

I started by adhering a panel of Blackberry Beauty DSP to a Rich Razzleberry mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a smaller panel of Blackberry Beauty DSP to a Rich Razzleberry mat using Stampin’ Seal and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the In Your Words SAB Host stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder and set is using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out with the Ornate Frames Dies. I cut the detailed frame from a panel of Rich Razzleberry cardstock using my Ornate Frames Dies and adhered the sentiment to the center using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered a length of 3/8″ Gold Shimmer Ribbon to the card front with Stampin’ Seal and adhered the framed sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the card front to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink on a Very Vanilla panel.

I adhered a strip of the Blackberry Beauty DSP to the side of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Rich Razzleberry mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set multiple times on the envelope front in Rich Razzleberry Ink without reinking. I adhered a panel of the Blackberry Beauty DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Thank You

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s week going? We’re halfway through and on our way to the weekend already. I’m so excited, tomorrow I’ll be heading down the shore for the day. It’s our 1st, and probably last, time this summer. The beach is my happy place. I get lost in my thoughts listening to the waves and taking long walks along the water. I’m so looking forward to going.

Today’s card we made last night at our team meeting. My team leader, Jaimie, decided to do some mystery stamping. She gave us all the cardstock and DSP measurements. We had to pick the stamp set and colors we wanted and she talked us through making our cards. All our cards were different, but yet the same. It was so much fun, I can’t wait to do it again. Here’s the card I made.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Cling Stamp Set along with the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper for my card.

I started by randomly stamping the images from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider, Misty Moonlight and Soft Succulent Inks on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I embossed the panel using my Timework Type 3D Embossing Folder.

I cut the artwork into 1″ strips using my Paper Trimmer and adhered them to the Basic White mat, leaving a tiny space between the strips, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to an Evening Evergreen mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow DSP to a Basic White mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. I cut the sentiment out using my Ornate Frames Dies. I adhered a length of Soft Succulent 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon to the top of the artwork using a tiny amount of Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In-Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the images from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Cinnamon Cider, Misty Moonlight and Soft Succulent Inks on the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the images from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set on the envelope front in Cinnamon Cider, Misty Moonlight and Soft Succulent Inks. 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! Pretty Pumpkin for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Fall Frenzy”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Cling Stamp Set along with the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a Harvest Meadow DSP card front to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Crumb Cake card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the trio pumpkin image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Old Olive & Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I embossed the panel using my Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder and adhered the embossed panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal. On a small panel of Crumb Cake cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I made a multiloop bow using Linen Thread and adhered it to the card front using a Glue Dot. I added a few Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf images from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink above and below the sentiment. I colored the leaves in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cajun Craze 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 trio pumpkin image from the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the image in using my Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Old Olive & Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadow DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Garden Sunny Sentiment

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. I hope you have some fun plans for the weekend.

I have a quick card for you today using the new Stampin’ Up! Daisy Garden Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Sunny Sentiments Cling Stamp Set. Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from The Spot Challenge #161.

I started by stamping the large daisy image from the Daisy Garden stamp set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Granny Apple Green, Magenta Madness and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the panel using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I adhered the cut panel to a Fresh Freesia mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted card front to a Fresh Freesia card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Sunny Sentiments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the image out using the Ornate Frames Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few of the Magenta Madness 2020-2022 In-Color Square Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Sunny Sentiments stamp set in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the daisy image from the Daisy Garden stamp set on the bottom corner of the panel and colored it in using my Granny Apple Green, Magenta Madness and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Fresh Freesia card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the daisy image from the Daisy Garden stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and the envelope flap. I colored the images in using my Granny Apple Green, Magenta Madness and Soft Suede 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!!
