Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season Let Snow For Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Does anyone have any plans for the weekend, since it’s here already?  I’m leaving today for Hartford, CT for OnStage.  If you follow me on Facebook, I will be posting some new sneak peaks.  I can’t wait to meet up with my fellow team members and to get my hands on the new Occasions Catalog.  I will be sharing all that I am allowed with you next week and on my Facebook page.

For today’s card I’ve made a double triangle fun fold.  Here’s my card.

The colors of my card were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge #327.  Here are their colors.

I started with a full sheet of Shaded Spruce cardstock.  I scored it at 4 1/4″ along the 8 1/2″ side and 5 1/2″ along the 11″ side.  I lined the cardstock up in my Paper Trimmer on a diagonal and cut.  You are now able to make 2 cards with this panel.  I folded on the 2 fold lines having the 2 triangles meeting in the center of the card.  I adhered a panel of Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper to each of the Real Red mats using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted DSP panels to each of the triangles of the Shaded Spruce card base.

I adhered a panel of the Let It Snow Specialty DSP, which I cut using the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies, to a scallop oval cut from the Layering Ovals Dies in Real Red Glimmer Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a panel of Sparkle Glimmer Paper I stamped the snowman image from the Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I punched the snowman out using the Snowman Builder Punch.  I punched the snowman’s arms out of Soft Suede cardstock using the Snowman Builder Punch.  I adhered the arms to the back of the snowman using Glue Dots.  I adhered the snowman to the center of the oval using Stampin’ Dimensionals.   Using the Snowman Builder Punch again, I punched out a hat from the Let It Snow Specialty DSP and adhered it to the top of the snowman using a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I adhered the oval to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the left side of the oval.

On the top right side of the card front I stamped the sentiment from the Snowman Season stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink and immediately sprinkled it with my Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Snowman Season stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped another one of the snowman images from the Snowman Season stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Real Red mat using Snail and then adhered it to the inside of the Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the snowman image from the Snowman Season stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Let It Snow Specialty 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! Snowman Season for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Halloween my fellow stampers!  It’s time for our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  This week we have a color challenge.  I can’t wait to see what everyone created with these colors.  Here is what I came up with.

Here are our colors for this week.

My card played along with the Fab Friday Sketch Challenge #175.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the snowman image from the Stampin’ Up! Snowman Season Photopolymer Stamp Set.  I stamped the main part of the image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, the tree and pompom on his hat I colored with my Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Write Marker and the tree trunk I colored with my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker.  I colored the snowman’s nose, hat and scarf in using my Real Red and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the stitched circle to a scalloped circle cut from my Layering Circles Dies in Real Red Glimmer Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Shaded Spruce cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Snowman Season stamp set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.  I adhered a strip of Real Red Glimmer Paper under the sentiment using Snail.  I added a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Snowman Season stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the snowflake image from the Snowman Season stamp set on either side of the sentiment in Coastal Cabana Ink and once over the sentiment in Coastal Cabana Ink stamping off once.  I added 2 thin strips of the Let It Snow Specialty DSP to either side of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the snowman image from the Snowman Season stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the artwork.  I adhered a panel of the Let It Snow Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.
