Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths Fun Fold

Good Monday morning… how are you after the weekend? Refreshed? Hopefully you were able to do something F-U-N! So… guess what – another Cottage Wreaths card :O) this time it’s a fun fold different from what I’ve shared already – but so super easy.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths Fun Fold.1

The color on this seems a little wonky, but hopefully you get the gist. I’ve used Gingham Cottage DSP – it has a very country look to it to me, in Real Red. The wreath is stamped in Garden Green with the Cottage Wreaths stamp set, and as I’ve explained before, since it is a distinctive stamp, it has dimension in the stamp that shows various depths of the same color. I stamped again with the ‘twig’ wreath stamp in stamped-off Soft Suede. I die cut using the coordinating Country Wreaths Dies. I tied a bow using the Garden Green 3/8″ Ribbon Combo Pack and adhered it with a glue dot. I added the bow first so as to have a starting place for adding the Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels. :O) Once the wreath was created I set it aside and did all the card cuts.

There are two cuts for the card base: 7 1/4 x 5 1/2 scored at 3″ on the long side; the flap is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 scored at 1″. I used Real Red for my card base. And I like layers, so several sections have two layers. I’ll give all those dimensions at the end of this post. Let’s start by adhering the flap to the card base. Burnish all score lines. The square flap score is turned inward with the fold on right. Adhere it to the open card base, on the far right edge, equidistant from top to bottom. I don’t want the folded edge over-hanging either, so when adhering, make it even with the edge. I should have taken a picture – and didn’t :O( This is when I added most of the other panels: on the front Basic White and Real Red Gingham Cottage DSP; on the inside I used Basic White & Sweetest Christmas DSP – very cheerful. Now stamp the center Basic White panel – – – and here’s something to remember: on my card, when the flap is closed, some of the stamping shows – don’t do that. Both sentiments on the inside come from the Hope & Peace stamp set: the upper is stamped in Soft Suede ink , the lower in Real Red ink. The wonderful leaves are stamped in Garden Green ink using the Cottage Wreaths stamp set. Adhere this panel in place.

Now go back and add the fun wreath – with dimensionals of course. And you already realize it goes on the flap panel, right?!

Stampin' Up! Cittage Wreaths Bundle Fun Fold.3

For the envelope, I chose more of the Real Red Gingham Cottage DSP for the flap. The sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede ink and comes from Cottage Wreaths stamp set.

This stamp set Cottage Wreaths and it’s coordinating Country Wreaths Dies is in the July- Dec 2022 Mini Catalog – as are the Hope & Peace stamp set, the Sweetest Christmas DSP AND the Garden Green Ribbon from the 3/8″ Ribbon Combo Pack.

Stam[in’ UP! Cottage Wreaths Slimline

Good Sunday morning! I’m writing this rather early on Sunday… and it isn’t daylight yet :O) I love sunrises – do you?They just start my day in a perfect place. Today’s card is another Cottage Wreaths bundle – this time as a slimline card. I’m having trouble moving on to other bundles, can you tell? This is pretty simple, but simplicity is a good thing.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths Slimline.1

The DSP really sets off the wreath, stamped in Real Red ink. The DSP is Boughs of Holly… back to the wreath. This is a distinctive stamp so it has these wonderful variations in shading that really show in the wreath. The greens behind the wreath are small die cut leaves from Garden Green scraps -there are four of these dies in the Country Wreaths Dies so it’s easy to die cut several at a time, and I did just that :O) The bow is also die cut from Garden Green card stock and is adhered with mini dimensionals. Let me show you the back of the wreath before I added it to the card front.

Stampin Up! Cottage Wreaths Bundle.2

You can see nine small leaves attached to the wreath – I was able to do that by using Stampin’ Seal on the back of the wreath, add the leaves (looking from the front of the wreath) then add dimensionals over that. This helps hold the leaves in place even more. Back to the wreath front… I added several Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the wreaths, and a single larger jewel on the bow.

The sentiment banner comes from the Hope & Peace stamp set and was stamped in Soft Suede ink on Thick Basic White and die cut with the banner from Natural Prints Dies. Don’t you love the mix of fonts in this sentiment? The ribbon is attached with tear & Tape then dimesnionals to add to the card front . You can see I added two Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the banner. Here’s a look at the back of the banner.

Stampin' Up! Natural Prints Dies.3

Now to put the card together… card base Thick Basic White cut 7 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored on the short side at 3 1/4. The layers are both from Boughs of Holly DSP: red is 3 1/8 x 8 1/8, the Soft Suede is 2 7/8 x 7 7/8.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths Bundle.4

The sentiment comes from Cottage Wreaths stamp set and is stamped in Soft Suede ink on the Basic White panel. The frothy leaf spray is stamped in Garden Green ink – and also comes from Cottage Wreaths stamp set – in the opposite corners. Layers: Boughs of Holly DSP 6 x 3 1/8; Basic White 5 3/4 x 2 7/8.

Stampin' Up! Slimline Envelope.5

The envelope is one of very own Stampin’ Up! Slimline Envelopes in White. I simply added a 3/8″ strip to the bottom front and nothing else. Want to take a peak at the card again?

Stampin’ Up! Boughs of Holly in a Slimline Fun Fold

Good morning folks! Today’s card is very pretty and just a bit more involved than the tags I shared with you yesterday. And one of the interesting facts about card making is you can make it as simple or as complicated as YOU desire. 😊 This isn’t so complicated as it is layered. It is very pretty and a satisfying card to make. We had a team meeting the other afternoon and this card was designed by one of my teammates. I love it!

Stampin' Up! Boughs of Hololy Fun Fold.1

Let’s begin with the card base of Mossy Meadow 7 1/2 x 8 1/2. Score on the long side at 3 3/4 and 1 7/8; burnish well. Since this is an easel card, both folds will be mountain. Add the Boughs of Holly DSP to a Cherry Cobbler panel slightly larger, then to a Mossy Meadow panel a bit larger yet. (Further card cuts will be found at the end of this post.) Now let’s do some stamping & die cutting using the Leaves of Holly bundle. On a panel of Mossy Meadow and with Mossy Meadow ink, stamp the smaller outline of the two holly leaves three times. Now stamp the filler stamp in Mossy Meadow ink, stamped-off once. This gives the leaves dimension. Die cut these and set them aside. The berries are also a two step stamp as well: stamp the full berry in Real Red ink, then the detail in Cherry Cobbler ink: die cut and set aside. The beautiful label die in this this Leaves of Holly bundle is just gorgeous, with the holly leaves delicate die cuts on one side and the framing that is created. Die cut this in Cherry Cobbler. There is a die that is rather New Jersey shaped for cutting a piece to go behind the holly leaves – use this to die cut from another piece of Boughs of Holly DSP and adhere with dabs of liquid glue behind the holly leaves. Secure this to the large front panel on the left of the card. Add the three previously die cut leaves on the right of this panel, creating a spray. Add the berries in the center of the leaves with dimensionals. Time for a sentiment… let’s stamp this in Mossy Meadow ink using the Mistletoe Magic stamp set and on a Basic White piece. Die cut with the label die from Leaves of Holly Dies. Add to the Cherry Cobbler label with dimensionals. I tucked in three Gold Holly Leaves with glue dots as shown in the photo. Then I added several Real Red Rhinestone Jewels – some on the sentiment, the rest around the large holly leaves. Now attach this large panel to the lower fold of the card front, with glue just to the 1 7/8″ fold line to make this an easel card – and the card front is complete.

Stampin' Up! Boughs of Holly Fun Fold.2

For the inside, we’ll do the stamping first: stamp the sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink on a Basic White piece using Mistletoe Magic stamp set; die cut with the Frosted Flurry Die and set aside. Now pull out two Textural Elements – these are delicate wood elements and can be colored with Stampin’ Blends: Early Espresso for the stems and Real Red for the berries. I also added some Pearlized Enamel Effects in Real Red to the berries :O). These take a bit of time to harden. Add the Basic White panel to the remaining Cherry Cobbler piece and add it to the inside of the card. Now add the Textural Elements with glue dots on the back of each berry, making sure they are pretty even. These elements will be what the front of the card leans against to make it an easel card. :O) Clever, right? Back to the inside sentiment… add a length of Shimmer Ribbon in Gold with Tear n’ Tape to the back of the sentiment. Put dimensionals on this and add, centering, to the inside – as shown.

Stampin' Up! Boughs of Holly Fun Fold.3

For the envelope… obviously a standard A2 envelope will not work for this card 😁 – but a leagal size one will! I happen to have a gold envelope… I covered the flap in more of the Boughs of Holly DSP then stamped the lower left corner with the outline stamp of the holly – Mossy Meadow ink, then stamped a second leaf without re-inking. This makes it look as though it is behind the first leaf. And that’s it! A very classy looking card.

Stampin’ Up! Designer Tags Dies – as Tags!

Good Monday morning ~ new day, new week, new start to something wonderful. Todays project uses the Designer Tags Dies as what else – tags… (Yesterday I made a card from them so that’s why I’m saying that ) :😁 I only made two tags, but the possibilities are endless. Let your imagination go wild!

Stampin' Up! Designer Tags Dies

The red background tag uses the Sweetest Christmas DSP as the background with one of the dies. On top of that is another die cut and I chose to leave all the pieces in it and adhered it directly to the tag base. The next layer is loose but attached with the crochet thread. I figure to put to whom the present goes on this sweet portion.

The other tag is super simple… Basic White card stock again and with the Rose Gold die cut butterfly from the Designer Tags Dies. Isn’t this butterfly the sweetest? I added two Glassy Dots Assortments in Gorgeous Grape to the butterfly. The sentiment at the bottom is from Go To Greetings stamp set. The attached ribbon is Metallic Woven Ribbon in Orchid Oasis.

Stampin’ Up! Caroling Mice Fun Fold

Good Friday morning! It’s fun fold Friday :O) This is such a quick & easy card even though it’s a fun fold. It’s really about paying attention to the detail – as in following instructions. I made this card not long ago but with the elephants and made it a baby card – also, the ‘swing’ was a square not a circle. This is called a Half Swing or Pop-Out Swing Card and it’s one of the cards we made in my card class yesterday. And here ya go…

Stampin' Up! Caroling Mice Fun Fold

I began with Thick Basic White card stock, standard A2 size (8 1/2 x 5 1/2) I adhered the DSP (4 x 5 1/2) on the right side only, then die cut the circle with the Stylish Shapes Dies (second largest). NOTE: the circle is rather equidistant from both sides and the top of the card front. I removed the circle, and adhered the rest of the DSP to the card front. With a 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 square of Thick Basic White, cut the ‘frame’ for the circle using the two largest circles in the Stylish Shapes Dies and run them through the die cutting machine. On this circle, stamp the single mouse from the Caroling Mice stamp set in Memento ink: color the mouse with Stampin’ Blends. I used Evening Evergreen for the jacket, Real Red for the scarf, Light Basic Gray for the mouse and Soft Succulent for the hat. Put a dot of Pearlized Enamel Effects in white on the hat top and set aside to dry. This takes a bit of time to dry and you don’t want to smear it! Now lets create the ‘swing’ part :O)

Cut another piece of Thick Basic White 6 1/2 x 5 1/2 and score on the long side at 2, 4 and 6. Burnish well. On the 1/2″ end, make a cut to the score line approximately 1/2″ from top and 1- 1 1/2″ from the bottom and trim away the middle portion. You scored & trimmed piece should look like this.

Stampin' Up! Caroling Mice Fun Fold, inside

And when adhering to the inside of the card, it will look like this. .. note in particular the direction of the tabs.

Stampin' Up! Caroling Mice Fun Fold, inside.2

BEFORE ADHERING TO THE INSIDE OF THE CARD, STAMP THE VARIOS PANELS. I capitalized that sentence ‘cuz someone I know did not do that and stamping after it was adhered to the card base was tricky. :O( Here’s a photo after stamping and coloring with Stampin’ Blends – and already showing it attached.

Stampin' Up! Caroling Mice Fun Fold, completed inside

The street light image from Caroling Mice stamp set was stamped in Memento Black ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends: Basic Black, dark Real Red, So Saffron. For the light I first did the Light So Saffron, then used the Dark So Saffron in the lower portion of the left small opening and in the left corner of the large opening. This gave it a bit more depth. I also added Wink of Stella to the light area and the bow. The tree from Caroling Mice stamp set was stamped in Evening Evergreen ink and topped with Adhesive-backed Seasonal Sequins in red. Once everything was stamped & colored I adhered the inner panel to the card: the right portion got adhesive and was attached to the far right on the inside of the card, about 1/8″ from edge; with the tabs facing ‘in’ (see photo), add adhesive, fold the accordian inside flat and close the card front over. The tabs will adhere in the proper place and should NOT SHOW THROUGH the circle opening.

There is an extra circle die cut from the card front – use this to adhere to the stamped caroling mouse circle. Close card and put adhesive on the area that shows through the circle on the right side, attach colored caroling mouse circle and hold in place for a bit to make certain it is dry. Now open the card and wheee – the mouse is attached.

Now let’s finish the card front. Using Sweet Candy Canes stamp set, stamp the sentiment in Evening Evergreen on a Thick Basic White scrap. Die cut with the die from Candy Canes Dies. I found it easier to adhere the sentiment banner then add the ribbon – so that’s what I did. Adhere the sentiment banner with dimensionals; attached ribbon to both ends – I used the Real Red from the Real Red & Garden Green 3/8″ Ribbon Combo Pack in theJul-Dec Mini catalog. I used a length of Linen Thread tied in a knot to hold the ends together. For the final touch, three Adhesive-backed Seasonal Sequins were added to the banner. Such a fun card!

Stampin’ Up! Trimming the Tree in White

Good Tuesday morning… School starts today for many of the children around here. That reminds me of football games, marching band, cheerleaders, etc. etc. What are some of your mem’ries? And fall leads to Christmas, right? So today’s card is a Christmas card and it reminds me of my father-in-laws Christmas tree farm. His full time job was quite different: he designed engines for airplanes, but he loved his trees. There was a specific time of year for trimming, shaping ~ in hot July & early August. And trees trimmed that summer weren’t sold until at least the following year so the tips grew over. Nowadays when we go looking for a Christmas tree, they have all been recently shaped – ugh. Reminiscing… back to today’s card…

Stampin' Up! Trimming the Tree in white.1

I chose not to use traditional Christmas DSP on this card, I used Texture Chic Specialty DSP ~ it adds a softness, doesn’t it? I had an aunt that would purchase heavily flocked trees and this sort of reminds me of that. Notice the tree on the left, it isn’t cut out entirely, just the pine boughs – and prior to attaching to your card stock, it’s easy to make those boughs poke out for more of a 3D effect. :O) The smaller tree on the right does the same thing – but it is totally die cut from the card stock. I cut very tiny pieces of dimensionals for the back of this tree to give it some depth. And those bows – are they delicate and sweet or what? They were die cut with the Tree Trimmings Dies as well as the trees: and so were the stars. The Tree Trimmings Dies coordinate (partner) with the Trimming the Tree stamp set in the Annual Catalog. The dies are being offered during the month of September only as part of the Perfect Partners promotion. These dies are wonderful – little ornaments and tree stands, and swags and so much more. But, back to the card. There are some layers here: Texture Chick SDSP, 12 x 12 Gold Foil, Gold 6×6 (as in Gold & Rose Gold 6×6 DSP) and the White Glimmer Paper for one of the stars, and Brushstroke in Soft Succulent (bows and backing to the trees). I’ll add the card cuts at the end of this post.

Stampin' Up! Trtimming the Tree in white, inside.2

For the inside of the card, I stamped the snowflake from the Season of Chic stamp set in VersaMark ink then sprinkled it with Gold embossing powder and heat set. Once cool I used a Blending Brush to add some color – Soft Succulent. The sentiment is stamped in Evening Evergreen ink using the Trimming the Tree stamp set. on a Basic White panel. This was added to a piece of Evening Evergreen card stock, then added to the Soft Succulent card base.

Stampin' Up! Trimming the Tree in white.3

For the envelope, more of the snowflake Texture Chic SDSP for the flap, trimmed to fit after adhering. And for the envelope front, I stamped the same snowflake from Seasons of Chic stamp set in Soft Succulent ink – two of them stamped-off & one in full strength. I can’t wait to play with these dies again…Tree Trimmings Dies, part of the Perfect Partners promotion! If you already have the Trimming the Tree stamp set, the Tree Trimmings Dies can be purchased separately. If you have neither, they can be purchased together for a 10% discount – how sweet is that!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Barn Bundle

Whew – Labor Day! How’s it going for you? Our dog got me up extra early this AM – before 4… and I’m draggy, didn’t get my post completed when I wanted to – but can’t blame him for that! Hope YOUR day is going well. My card today features the Christmas Barn Bundle PLUS the fabulous Split Card Textures Dies – both new to me. I also used another new product for me… the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint. Now THAT item takes a bit of getting used to. I couldn’t seem to make a thin enough ‘ribbon’ of Puff Paint, but I’ll share the card anyway.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Barn Bundle.1

The DSP in the background is the Painted Christmas DSP, a carryover from last year. I love it! Can you see the Puff Paint? I should have taken a couple of close-up photos. The line near the bottom is pretty good, and under the trees is OK. I DON’T like it on the trees :O( For one thing, it absorbed some of the green from stamping the tree. Who knew? Live & learn. Do you like the snowflakes though? They are from the Barn Dies – three sizes, just small. The sentiment is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink from the Christmas Barn stamp set. And the sleigh… so cute. I couldn’t really decide what colors to use: Bronze for the sleigh, Lt. Cherry Cobbler for the blanket and the drivers hat; Lt. Soft Suede for the horse with a bit of Color Lifter for contrast; Lt Basic Black for the main & tail; Lt Evening Evergreen for the other hat and Light Smoky Slate for the trousers. After coloring, this was die cut with the coordinating Barn Dies. The trees were stamped in Garden Green from the Christmas Barn stamp set and die cut with the Barn Dies. They were adhered with liquid glue while the sleigh & its passengers were mounted on dimensionals. What else, that may be it for the card front.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Barn Bundle, inside.2

The sentiment is from the Christmas Barn stamp set, stamped in Real Red ink on a Basic White panel. The wreath was stamped in Garden Green ink, then Lt Real Red Stampin’ Blends was used to color the pretty bow. I also covered the bow in Wink of Stella. I know you can’t see it here, but I did.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Barn Bundle.3

For the envelope, more of the same Painted Christmas DSP for the flap, adhered & trimmed to fit. For the front, this super sweet wreath was again stamped in Garden Green ink and colored with the Light Real Red Stampin’ Blends. Done!

Now here’s the thing… I SHOULD HAVE posted a card using one of the Perfect Partners for today. After all, it’s Sep. 5 and this weeks ‘deals’ only go through Sep 7. But I didn’t. I will give more information below about the Weekly Deals & the Perfect Partners stamps/ dies. :O)

Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreaths in Rose Gold

Hello again… I have another Christmas card to share with you today, but truth be told, it wouldn’t have to be a Christmas card: change the outside sentiment and it could be ‘hello friend’. Yes, you might want to change the colors too. Maybe I should do just that??!! Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths in Rose Gold.1

The colors in this are so soft. A bit Victorian looking as I look at it now. I started with Thick Basic White in an A2 size, then cut another panel of Basic White & ran it through the Stripes & Splatters embossing folder. This I adhered directly to the card front. Before doing any more, I die cut two wreaths using the Country Wreaths Dies: one in Gold Metallic 6×6 and one in Rose Gold Metallic 6×6. They come together in a 6×6 packet. I layered them together with dabs of glue along the center, then curled the leaves slightly with my fingers. I added several Pearl Basic Jewels. The bow… is also from the Country Wreaths Dies and uses the Pearlescent Paper that has a glorious sheen to it. This I added with a couple of dimensionals. This was layered on two panels: top is the Brushstroke in Blushing Bride (gosh it’s gorgeous… I think I’ve been hoarding it) and Rose Gold. These were adhered together and added to the card front; the wreaths were added next, centering in the almost square. I stamped the sentiment in Blushing Bride ink using the Hope & Peace stamp set from the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog, on a Basic White piece and die cut it with the Potted Succulent Dies from the 2022-2023 Annual catalog. Isn’t it fun how easy it is to co-mix Stampin’ Up! items? Once die cut this was adhered with dimensionals – and the card front was done.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths in Rose Gold.2, inside

For the inside I stamped the sentiment on a Basic White panel with Blushing Bride ink and another wording from the Hope & Peace stamp set. This was adhered to a slightly larger piece of Blushing Bride card stock then into the card itself – and DONE.

Stampin' Up! Cttage Wreaths in Rose Gold.3

For the envelope… a panel of Basic White was run through the same Stripes & Splatters embossing folder and adhered to the flap & trimmed to fit. This gorgeous bow from the Cottage Wreaths stamp set was stamped in Blushing Bride ink and coated with Wink of Stella. I know you can’t see it in this photo, but it makes a nice glam & glitter :O)

Some of the products to make this card are from the Jul- Dec 2022 Annual Catalog. If you do not have a demonstrator and need catalogs please reach out to me – happy to send one to you. The other catalog available right now is the 2022 -2023 Annual Catalog . When ordering, please also use my current host code: TXBWJTMW.and remember I offer Star-Studded Rewards.

I’ve chosen to do a slimline card :O) for this challenge using the Boughs of Holly DSP as the main focus. I even used another piece of DSP as a layer behind the super colorful panel. I colored the Crinkled Seam Binding with a Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends to ‘tie’ it all together. And the sentiment on the front is on a Basic White piece stamped in Mossy Meadow ink using the Leaves of Holly stamp set & die cut with the Holly Berry Dies. These two coordinate & so when purchased together offer a 10% discount!!! Just sayin’… if you want this bundle, this is the way to go. OK, what else…you can see I slipped the ribbon behind the sentiment banner for a bit of fun. I think it adds a nice touch. The ribbon is adhered in place with a glue dot and the piece that slips behind the sentiment banner also has a glue dot. The banner is on dimensionals. Measurements will be given at the end of this post. :O)

Stampin' Up! slimline card, inside, Merriest Moments

For the inside I used another piece of the same DSP as on the layer on the front, from Boughs of Holly DSP. then added a Basic White panel. This panel is stamped using Merriest Moments stamp set. The sentiment is stamped in Shaded Spruce ink. The holly leaves are stamped first in Old Olive ink, stamped off, then with a sponge dauber, inked with Shaded Spruce ink and stamped on the panel. I love this look, the varied colors so similar to nature! Again, card stock measurements will be listed at the end of this post.

Stampin' Up! Slimline Envelopes

And here’s the Slimline Envelope (157981) decorated using the Merriest Moments stamp set.I inked the holly leaf stamp in Old Olive, stamped off, used the sponge dauber & Shaded Spruce ink to add a bit of variation, then stamped the envelope with each holly leaf. And that was it!!! YAY!
