Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. I hope you are ready for the weekend. Looks like we’ve got 6 more weeks of winter coming to us, the groundhog saw his shadow yesterday. I don’t know how it is by you, but it’s supposed to be cold here this weekend.
I have a quick fun fold for you today. This is not what I was planning on making Wednesday when I got stuck at work later than usual. I had everything planned out that I was going to be done with work by 1:30/2:00, I’d get home and get everything set up and be ready to go. My bills had other plans for me. Here’s my card for today.
I used the Stampin’ Up! Amazing Year Cling Stamp Set from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog along with the Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper for my card today.
I started by cutting 2 3/4″ off the front of the card base leaving 2 3/4″. I embossed a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Timeworn Type 3d Embossing Folder. Using my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker, I flicked some ink on the panel to give a splattered look. I adhered the embossed panel to the front of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the flower image from the Amazing Year stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored just the flowers using my sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut a panel of Sweet Sorbet cardstock using the Scalloped Contours Dies. I adhered the artwork to the die cut panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the left half of the panel.
I tied a double bow using the 2022-2024 In-Color Baker’s Twine Pack and adhered it to the floral image using a Glue Dot. I added a few 2022-2024 In-Color Matte Decorative Dots to the card front.
On the inside, I adhered a panel of Perfectly Penciled DSP to the inside of the Basic Whtie Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic Whtie cardstock, I stamped the sentiments from the Amazing Year stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the top of the floral image from the Amazing Year stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored just the flowers using my Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the card base using Stampin’ Seal.
To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the flower image from the Amazing Year stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored the flowers only using my Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Perfectly Penciled 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!!

MY CURRENT HOST CODE IS: BFQ24SXS
Use this host code when placing an order with me. When you order $50 or greater you will receive a free gift from me! If your order is over $150, please do not use this code, but you’ll still get the free gift. The free gift is your choice of any 1 item valued up to $10.00 from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog or the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog! Unfortunately, packs of cardstock are no longer an option for a free gift. Shipping has become too expensive to ship and it’s costing me as much to ship as the cardstock costs. For any orders $50 or more I will also send you my monthly class tutorials. Click HERE or go to my Customer Rewards for more details and to see what this month’s tutorials are.
Please remember to use my current Host Code and make sure that you can see my name on the final checkout page listed as your Demonstrator when you order so that you know that you’re ordering with me, and you’ll get my rewards!
Happy Stamping, Karen
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:
- 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….
- 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! has some new items to pick from at the $50 level and $100 level during Sale-a-bration! They are all items from the current catalog and they’re all available in addition to the Sale-a-bration exclusives from the Sale-a-bration 2023 Brochure!
Please note that you must use the item numbers included on the linked flyer in order to redeem these items as Sale-A-Bration items.
