Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. How was everyone’s week? Hope you had a productive one and are ready for the weekend. Does anyone have any plans? I believe I will be working both days.

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! Whimsical Trees Bundle along with the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper for my fun fold card today.

I started by scoring a full panel of Mint Macaron cardstock. With the 8 1/2″ side on the bottom of the trimmer I scored at 4 1/4″. I turned the cardstock so the 11″ side was on the bottom of the trimmer and I scored at 5 1/2″. I took my score blade out of my trimmer and lined up the corners with the cutting indent and cut the panel from corner to corner making sure to go through the center mark on the cardstock. This will give you 2 card bases. I folded the top triangle down and the side triangle over. I cut a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock from corner to corner so that I had 2 triangles. I cut a panel of Whimsy & Wonder Spec. DSP from corner to corner so that I had 2 triangles. I adhered one of the triangles of the Whimsy & Wonder Spec DSP to one of the Blushing Bride triangles using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered it to the front of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On another panel of Blushing Bride cardstock, which I adhered an Adhesive Sheet to the back, I cut multiple garland dies using the Christmas Tree Dies. I adhered them to the other Blushing Bride triangle to fill in most of the spaces and trimmed the excess using my Paper Snips. I adhered the panel to the other front of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the ornament and holly images from the Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink twice. I colored the images in using my Mint Macaron, Polished Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the images out using my Christmas Trees Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a small panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the sentiment to a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock, which I cut a scalloped edge using the Penned Flower Dies, using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the ornaments to either side of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue just on the strings. I adhered the holly on top of each set of ornaments using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered panel to the top of only one side of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Genial Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the tree image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the light image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Polished Pink Ink over the tree image. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Blushing Bride mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the light image from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Polished Pink Ink over the tree image. I adhered a panel of Whimsy & Wonder Spec DSP to the envelope flap

Stampin’ Up! Create With Friends 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 long 4th of July weekend yet? I will be at Ace all day Saturday working and both places are closed for the 4th on Sunday so I have off, 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! Create With Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set, the Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Bundle and the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper.

I started by scoring the card base at 4 1/4″ & 5 1/2″. I then scored from the bottom of the 4 1/4″ score line to the top right corner and folded the panel in. I adhered the left binder side together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a strip of the Hand-Penned DSP to the left side of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the largest die from the Scalloped Contours Dies. I moved the die down 3 scallops and cut again to make a square. I adhered a panel of Hand-Penned DSP to the scallop square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the panel just to the bottom triangle of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Create With Friends stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink. I edged the sentiment using my Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker. On a thin scrap of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Create With Friends stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink and adhered it to the top of the larger sentiment using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Genial Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mint Macaron Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered the panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I cut the detailed floral die from from a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock using the Penned Flowers Dies. I adhered the die cut to the inside panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals, placing it on the corner to hold the easel open.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the large floral image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Hand-Penned DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals 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 yet for the weekend? I’ll be at work all day tomorrow. Sunday we have our quarterly in person meeting, and it will be in person for those that are close enough to attend, 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! Hand-Penned Suite for my corner fold card today. Stampin’ Up! has simplified purchasing for you. There is one number for the Hand-Penned Petals Bundle, Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper and the Genial Gems. These products can be found on page 104/105 of the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

I started by adhering a panel of the Hand-Penned DSP to the front of a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Seal. I placed the bottom edge of my card on the bottom edge of my Trimmer at the 3″ mark. I placed the cutting blade at the 2 1/2″ mark and cut up to the 4 7/8″ mark. I turned the card a 1/4 turn, placing the front right side of the card on the bottom edge of the trimmer at the 3″ mark. I cut from the 3″ mark down to the 5/8″ mark. Very gently and slowly push the bottom cut edge through the back to flip around to the top. The DSP side will now be on the inside.

I embossed a small panel of Pale Papaya cardstock using the Checks & Dots Embossing Folder and adhered it to the flipped panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the fill images in Garden Green Ink, stamped off once, Misty Moonlight Ink, stamped off once and Pale Papaya Ink over the outlined image. I cut the image out using my Penned Flowers Dies. I cut a few of the detailed leaves from the Penned Flowers Dies from a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock and adhered them to the back of the die cut flowers using Glue Dots.

I adhered the bouquet to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered a piece of the Pale Papaya 1/2″ Woven Ribbon to the bottom of the card front with a tiny amount of Stampin’ Seal. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Genial Gems to the card front.

I adhered a panel of Hand-Penned DSP to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Seal. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink. I stamped a partial image of the flowers from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom corner of the panel. I stamped the fill images in Garden Green Ink, stamped off once, Misty Moonlight Ink, stamped off once and Pale Papaya Ink over the outlined image. I adhered the Basic White panel to the DSP panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, making sure it would be behind the card front.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped a partial flower image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the fill images in the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of the 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. 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.

Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Mother’s Day Card

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and heading towards the weekend. I actually have the day off today. Since I have to work all day Friday for the last of the month I decided not to go in today. Instead, I’m planning on going to the nursery to buy myself some more Hydrangea bushes. I have a garden that seems to get an excessive amount of water and I thought they would do perfectly there. I’ll buy them and plant them and I’ve asked my son and husband to dig up the garden so I can get it prepped.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concept. For the next 2 weeks we have a Happy Mother’s Day challenge. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Bundle (available May 4th). I was inspired by the beautiful spring flowers and colors in the bouquet for my Clean and Layered card. My design is from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #362.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us this week to play along with our challenge #154. How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of the retiring Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Thick Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Stitched Rectangle Dies then embossed is using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the large flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the individual flower and leaf images from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Daffodil Delight, Mint Macaron, Pacific Point and Polished Pink. I cut the image out using my Penned Flowers Dies (available May 4th).

Using the Penned Flowers Dies, I cut some of the leaves out of a panel of Garden Green cardstock and adhered them to the back of the bouquet using Glue Dots. I adhered a length of the Silver trim from the Simply Elegant Trim (available May 4th) using a little Stampin’ Seal to hold it in place. I adhered the bouquet to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to some of the flower centers. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dressed To Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pacific Point Ink and adhered it to the floral image using a Glue Dot and Stampin’ Dimensional.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulent Cling Stamp Set in Pacific Point in the center of Basic White panel. I had stamped the floral image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock and colored it in, but decided not to use it. I cut the image out using the detailed floral die from the Penned Flowers Dies and adhered it to the bottom of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pacific Point mat using Stampin’ Seal then adhered it to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the solid flower and leaf images in Daffodil Delight, Mint Maccaron, Pacific Point and Polished Pink Inks. I adhered a panel of the Brights 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!!
