Stampin’ Up! Playing in the Rain Fun Fold for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello everyone! It’s that time of week… for the blog hop!

Stampin' Up! Happy Inkin' Thursday hop.3/23
Stampin' Up! Blog Hop Challenge

Spring is in the air… daffodils are up as are Star Flower, crocus, Narcissus. Hellebores are really showing off (that’s a Lenten Rose if you didn’t know). And temps are rising, sort of… lots of wind – you know March! And here’s my card, a fun fold. It’s an off-set gatefold is what it is. And I really like the offset business.

Stampin' Up! Playing in the Rain bundle

This card begins with Balmy Blue card stock, scored on both ends, just not evenly 😀 Next I added Mango Melody adhered to each panel, then Rain or Shine DSP on top of that.

Stampin' Up! Playing in the Rain, inside

Moving to the inside of the card, I adhered Rain or Shine DSP to each end panel. I then added Mango Melody to the center panel, I then took a piece of Basic White and stamped the sweet flowers at the bottom using the Playing in the Rain stamp set & Memento ink. I colored the flowers with Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green Blends, I stamped the raindrops, again from Playing in the Rain, in Balmy Blue ink. The sentiment also comes from Playing in the Rain and is stamped in Balmy Blue ink. This panel was adhered in the center panel and the inside was complete.

Stampin' Up! Playing in the Rain fun fold with belly band

To make the belly band I cut a strip of Mango Melody in 1 x 91/4, wrapped it around the card loosely and adhered the ends together in the front. I removed the strip & burnished the folds of the band. I die cut a circle using the Stylish Shapes Dies and another piece of the Rain or Shine DSP. I die cut a slightly smaller circle in Basic White for strength and adhered it to the back of the circle. This was adhered with glue to the belly band, covering the glued ends. I die cut directly from the Rain or Shine DSP, this sweet fox with the umbrella and adhered it with dimensionals to the circle.

Stampin' Up! Playing in the Rain fun fold card & envelope

For the envelope, more of the Rain or Shine DSP for the flap; stamped flowers ( Memento ink) and rain drops (Balmy Blue ink) from Playing in the Rain stamp set ~ and the card & envelope were done! Such a cute card!!!
