Stampin’ UP! Best Day Book Fold

Good Monday morning! It is Martin Luther King day. Are you working today, or is your place closed? Schools are closed here, but I do know teachers in some private schools are open. At any rate, whatever you do, may you make it a good day. My card today is made with a new stamp set from the Jan-Apr 2023 Mini Catalog – called Best Day. It is so cute and I had a really playful time with color.

Stampin' Up! Best Day book fold

I focused on using several shades of blue and am really happy with the results. And the Granny Apple Green really makes everything pop. I started by stamping the image on a Basic White piece with Memento ink then got busy coloring with Stampin’ Blends: Daffodil Delight Granny Apple Green, Tahitian Tide and Pale Papaya. I even stamped the little whirlies in three of those colors. I die cut this with the largest square of the Stylish Shapes Dies. I wanted this piece on dimensionals so did that. Then came the playful layers: Textured Shimmer Paper in Balmy Blue (this is a new paper and it’s wonderful!) layered to Pacific Point. Then I pulled out the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP in Tahitian Tide and layered that on another panel of Pacific Point. My card base is Granny Apple Green and is made into a book fold: 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2 and again @ 4 1/2. Fold the card in half then adhere the section together between the 4 1/2 & 5 1/2 score lines ~ and the book fold is created. Now decorate by putting the layers together. What’s on dimensionals… the kitty cat of course, then also the Textured Shimmer Paper layered on the Pacific Point, that’s also on dimensionals. The final touch was Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins.

For the inside, again I kept that playful, colorful theme going. I stamped the image from Best Day stamp set in Memento ink then colored with Stampin’ Blends: Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Tahitian Tide and Pale Papaya. And while you can’t really tell in the photo, the cake is covered in Wink of Stella.

For the envelope… more of the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP in Tahitian Tide on the flap then I stamped the sparkles from Best Day stamp set in Tahitian Tide ink, Pale Papaya ink and Granny Apple Green ink. This card can so easily be for a child or a playful adult ~ I love it!

Stampin’ Up Wisteria Wishes Birthday

Wow – Dec 1 was amazing, wasn’t it? All the goodies Stampin’ Up is offering in the LAST CHANCE SALE and the CLEARANCE RACK – it’s hard to say ‘no’. PLUS there is the ability to order the Fitting Florets Collection and well – lots going on in the Stampin’ Up! world.

So here I am with a different kind of card for you… I’m working with the Wisteria Wishes stamp set and coordinating Wisteria Dies. I’ve also included some stampin and a bit of the 2022-2024 In Color Glimmer Paper. The color I’m using is Orchid Oasis, cuz, wisteria is often purple, right? And glimmer paper is well, just sparkly & fun. I’ve also done some stamping. Let’s take a look.

Stampin' Up! Wisteria Wishes Birthday.1

The card base is Thick Basic White. The next layer is the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Glimmer Paper in Orchid Oasis. The next layer is Basic White that I ran through the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. Doesn’t it remind you of a brick wall? It does to me! Then I did some stamping and die cutting.

Stamping: In the background I hope you see the wisteria from Wisteria Wishes stamp set, in a different shade than the glimmer paper~ that’s a two-step stamp: first the background stamped in Highland Heather ink, then the detail stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink, then die cut with the Wisteria Dies. I also stamped the wisteria leaves/branch from Wisteria Wishes stamp set in Pear Pizzazz ink and used a sponge dauber to add some depth with Old Olive ink. I did some additional die cutting with the Wisteria Dies: leaves/branch from Pear Pizzazz card stock & three more wisteria, this time from the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Glimmer Paper in Orchid Oasis. Because the Glimmer paper is graduated in shade, it provides a really nice variance/ difference in each of those particular die cuts. The leaves/ branch die cuts are adhered with liquid glue; the stamped wisteria are adhered with dimensionals; the glimmer paper wisteria are added with liquid glue. I love how many of the leaves are loose to create depth ands the glimmer paper wisteria are free-flowing at the ends – also to create depth. The sentiment banner is stamped in Highland Heather ink on a Basic White strip using the Happiness Abounds stamp set. I trimmed the end into a ‘banner tip’ then added it to the card front with dimenstionals. Final step… the three 2022-2024 In Color Matte Dots in Orchid Oasis.

Stampin' Up! Wisteria Wishes Birthday.2

For the inside, I chose another branch die cut from the Wisteria Dies and Pear Pizzazz card stock, slightly trimmed, to adhere around the stamped Highland Heather ink sentiment from Happiness Abounds stamp set. At the bottom is a scrap of the leftover 2022-2024 In Color Glimmer Paper in Orchid Oasis.

Stampin' Up! Wisteria Wishes Birthday.3

For the envelope… a 2 1/4 x 6 strip of the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP for the envelope flap, trimmed to fit. The sentiment is from Happiness Abounds and stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink. I made a bit of a ‘bluber’ (mistake) when I stamped, so used the Gorgeous Grape Marker to create this fun design around it to look like a postage stamp 🥴 And it’s ready for mailing! What do you think? Do you like?

Stampin’ Up! Fabulous Frames & By the Bay Specialty 6×6 DSP

Good Monday Morning! Oh my goodness… family was here for a couple of days and it was so so incredibly good! Lots of work keeping up with all the dirty dishes and constantly making food, but so worth it. Grateful, thankful, feeling very blessed.

Today’s card uses more of the Fabulous Frames Dies & By the Bay 6×6 Specialty DSP – and in a more feminine birthday card. The colors are so perfect for this young person.

Stampin' Up! Fabulous Frames Dies & By the Bay Sp 6x6 DSP.Jodi

The sentiment used the Let’s Celebrate embossing folder again, and this time I not only cut it down, but cut it apart :O) I die cut two frames using the Fabulous Frames Dies, one in Basic White and another in Pool Party, which is a coordinating color to the paper. I wanted the outside frame in the Basic White and the inner portion in Pool Party – now I have extra to play with another day . The card has a layer of the By the Bay Specialty 6×6 DSP on the Night of Navy card base, then the Fabulous Frame Die cut was adhered with liquid glue. The Pool Party panel is on dimensionals; the Happy Birthday is adhered with liquid glue, and the Fine Sparkle Adhesive-Backed Gems were added ~ and the card front is really complete.

Stampin' Up! Fabulous Frames & By the Bay 6x6bSpecialty DSP.Jodi

For the inside, a b it of a strip of the By the Bay 6×6 Specialty DSP along the edge of the Basic White panel, which was then adhered to the inside of the Night of Navy card base. I left the inside blank ‘cuz I have lots of things to say to her. ❤️

Stampin' Up! Fabulous Frames Dies & By the Bay 6x6 Specialty DSP.Jodi

For the envelope, there was a short panel of the By the Bay 6×6 Specialty DSP remaining, so I used it on the front of the envelope. I took another piece of Pool Party card stock and embossed it with the Let’s Celebrate embossing folder and adhered that to the flap. Durn – forgot to take a photo!

At any rate – this By the BaySpecialty DSP is stunning and gorgeous and has a beachy feel to it – so versatile. It will be available in the Jan-Apr 2023 Annual Catalog.

Stampin’ Up! Birthday with By the Bay Specialty DSP

Hello – ’tis Sat and our families are here to celebrate Thanksgiving. We share with in-laws :O)and they come here after. It works. Today’s card is a shaker card for a special birthday young man. I’ve used a couple of new items: two new to me & one new in the Jan-Apr 2023 Mini Catalog: the Let’s Celebrate Embossing Folder and the Fabulous Frames Dies are both new items for me. The By the Bay 6×6 Specialty DSP is also new to Jan-April 2023 Mini Catalog and is gorgeous!

Stampin' Up! By the Bay 6x6 Sp DSP Shaker card

This DSP looks so ‘beachy’ to me so I’ve used Sahara Sand card stock to create the frame using the Fabulous Frames Dies. And the Let’s Celebrate Embossing Folder was used for just this sentiment. I cut it way down just for this. I should have taken more pictures 😖… Anyhoo… the By the Bay 6×6 Specialty DSP was adhered to a Sahara Sand card base so it encompassed the full front of the card. To secure the window sheet to the inside of the frame, I used Tear n’ Tape all around the frame, then put the window sheet in place, then the Foam Adhesive strips were adhered to that. I attached the ‘frame’ to the card front just at the bottom, then sprinkled in a few Effervescent Elements and secured the rest of the frame in place. The sentiment was adhered just to the frame. Very masculine, don’t you think?

Stampin' Up! By the Bay 6x6 Specialty DSP Shaker card.inside

I kept the inside really simple ‘cuz I have some special things I want to write. 😏 I adhered a strip of the very same By the Bay 6×6 Specialty DSP along the left side to a Basic White panel – and called it done. I kept the envelope simple as well – another strip of the same By the Bay 6×6 Specialty DSP, just wider, to the left edge of the envelope. I really do like the masculinity of this card.

Stampin’ Up! Fitting Florets Collection, Birthday Fun Fold

It’s Friday and I’m off to a Stampin’ Up! Convention ~ headed to Jacksonville, FL. Yes, it should be raining but it may clear by mid day 😀 I’m taking a rain coat… Today’s card uses many of the items in the Fitting Florets Collection: Framed Florets and the coordinating Framed Florets Dies (notice how Stampin’ Up! ‘heard’ our pleas to use same titles for coordinating dies!), the Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls and the absolutely lovely Fitting Florets DSP. And ~ this is a fun fold.

Stampin' Up! Fitting Florets Collection. Birthday

This Fitting Florets DSP is simply gorgeous! And I especially love this particular pattern. I hated covering it with the beautiful Framed Florets Dies, but alas, it was necessary. I wanted to show off these beautiful framing dies. After die cutting in Basic White, this becomes two pieces – the center oval and the outside elaborate frame. I stamped the center oval with a sentiment from the Framed Florets in Evening Evergreen ink; adhered the outside frame to the DSP, centering it. I put dimensionals on the center oval and added it to the framed outline. I added the very pretty (and flat) Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls to highlight the sentiment. I debated and debated about adding more of the die cuts available, but I really liked the simplicity of this. The DSP was adhered to Balmy Blue card stock then to the Night of Navy A2 card front.

Stampin' Up! Fitting Florets Collection, Birthday.inside

For the inside, I took another piece of the Fitting Florets DSP and adhered it to the left side. I stamped the small leaf image and the berry ‘spray’ in Evening Evergreen ink and colored with Soft Succulent Blends for the leaves and Balmy Blue Blends for the ‘berries’. I also stamped the sentiment from the Fitting Florets stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink.

Next I created the ‘fun fold’ portion – and here’s how… cut a panel of Night of Navy card stock 4 3/4 x 8 and score at 2, 4, and 6.
Burnish well. Mark 2″ from the bottom on the right side. Trim from the top left corner to the 2″ mark on the right corner. Adhere panels from the Fitting Florets DSP cut at 1 7/8″. To get the correct angle on the DSP, prior to adhering…cut the panels 1 7/8 x 4 3/4 then lay down on table with the Night of Navy piece on top of it. With a ruler, mark the angle on the DSP. Trim 1/8″ off each bottom strip. Lay on top of card stock to see if any more trimming needs to be done, then adhere in place. This is called an Accordion Fun Fold.

Add far left panel to left side of inside of card, centering. I wanted my fun fold section to line up on the bottom with the DSP & Basic White panels. Adhere right section of the fold to the right inside panel. Here’s what it should look like looking down from the top.


Stampin' Up!
 Fitting Florets Colloection, Birthday fun fold.3

Now decorate the rest of the inside to your desire. Here’s what I did… stamp the two smaller flowers on a Basic White scrap in Evening Evergreen ink using the Framed Florets stamp set. Color both with Stamp’ Blends in Soft Succulent; die cut with Framed Florets Dies. Die cut a small leaf from Gold Foil Sheets (I used a scrap. Adhere each with liquid glue as shown.

For the envelope… more of the same Fitting Florets DSP adhered to the envelope flap & trimmed to fit. I then stamped the larger of the two small flowers in Evening Evergreen ink and this time colored them with Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends. It matches the flowers in the DSP! I then stamped the leaves in Evening Evergrren ink and colored with Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends. They too, match the DSP 😊

Stampin’ Up! Decorated With Happiness Bundle

It’s mid-week… how’s it going? Our week is going well at this end… getting cooler for sure. I need to bring in a couple of plants!!! My card for today uses the Decorated w/ Happiness bundle which I have not used much. I love this bundle – the pine fronds both stamped & die cut; the ornaments; the stars; the sentiments. It fits as lot of my needs :O)

Stampin' Up! Decorated w/ Happiness Bundle

I started by stamping the pine branch in Evening Evergreen ink – and yes, from Decorated with Happiness stamp set and on a Basic White panel. The filler stamp from this set is done in Soft Succulent ink. Next I die cut some of the ornaments using the Decorated Pine Dies from Gold Foil Sheets and chose this ball ornament – also die cut the ‘string’ with the bow from the same Gold Foil Sheets. I adhered the ‘string’ with dots of liquid glue, then stamped the filler image for the ornament in Cherry Cobbler second generation. I needed to ink & stamp twice cuz it wasn’t quite in the right spot 😳 Next I adhered the Gold Foil ornament over the inking. I stamped the greeting using the same Decorated with Happiness stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink. I added the die cut stars as an afterthought and really liked them. They also come from the Decorated Pine Dies & Gold Foil Sheets. I also stamped the the dots/ asterisk stamp in Soft Succulent ink – just cuz. This Basic White panel was adhered to Cherry Cobbler card stock just a bit larger; dimensionals went on the back and this was adhered to the A2 Soft Succulent card base.

Hint… about die cutting with foil: I designate a separate plate for die-cutting foil papers. They are used less and fewer marks on them. I also choose to use foil that is very close to size to the die. This way, marks are not transferred to the die. I mark my cutting plate so it reminds me! See photo.

Stampin' Up! Foil cutting plate.2

For the inside of my card… Basic White card stock and this fun ornament stamped in Evening Evergreen ink at various levels, then the ‘filler’ stamp in Soft Succulent ink, stamped-off first. This was added with liquid glue to the inside of the card base – and done!

Stampin' Up! Decorated w/ Happiness.3

For the envelope… I used the same pine fronds stamp from Decorated With Happiness stamp set and stamped in Evening Evergreen ink – both on the envelope front and the flap. The filler stamp from the same Decorated With Happiness stamp set was inked with Soft Succulent ink and stamped on the pine fronds. I used the dot/ asterisk stamp from the same stamp set and Soft Succulent ink to add more to the envelope front & flap.

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Fun Fold w/ Framed Florets Bundle

Good Saturday morning.I’ve created a fun fold birthday card for you today using the new Framed Florets Bundle. The card cuts will be listed as I go along and then again at the bottom of this post so you too, can create this fun fold.

Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Bundle & Fun Fold.1

Isn’t this paper (DSP) just beautiful? I guess it’s a bit tricky to see much of it here :0] You’ll have to take my word for it – unless of course you decide you want to get it now… in which case, keep reading and I’ll tell you how you can. For now, a couple more photos to see this card and how it stands to really it off.

Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Bundle Fun Fold.2
Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Bundle Fun Fold.3

The photo to the left shows more of this particular DSP (Fitting Florets 12 x 12 DSP) and the above photo shows how this stands to show off the fun fold.

This is a two part card: the card base and the fun fold adhered together. The card base is Night of Navy 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and has a single strip of Fitting Florets DSP adhered to either side (3/4 x 5 1/4). The fun fold portion is also Night of Navy 8 x 5 1/2 scored on the long side at 1 1/2, 2 3/4, 5 1/4 and 6 1/2. Burnish the folds: mountain, valley, valley, mountain. Add Fitting Florets DSP to each valley fold and the far right mountain fold in this order: 1 x 5 1/4, 1 x 5 1/4 and finally 1 1/4 x 5 1/4. See photo as a guide. The center message panel is Basic White 2 1/4 x 5 1/4.

The front panel is Night of Navy 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 and is adhered to the far left section of the fun fold, but centered when the card is closed – see 1st photo! Adhered to that is Balmy Blue 3 1/4 x 5 1/4. Adhered to that is the Basic White decorated panel. Stamp & decorate prior to adhering it!

To decorate this panel: Stamp the sentiment from Framed Florets stamp set in Night of Navy ink at the upper portion of the Basic White front panel; Stamp the leaf spray , also from Framed Florets stamp set, in Memento Black ink and color with Light Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends. Stamp the floral bouquet from Framed Florets stamp set on a separate panel of Basic White, color with Stampin’ Blends: Polished Pink (both Light & Dark Blends), Soft Succulent (both Light & Dark), & Petal Pink; die cut with Framed Florets Dies. Add dimensionals to back and adhere to panel front. Create this beautiful bow with Silver-Threaded Twine that has been separated. Adhere bow with a glue dot. Add three Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls. Now add this completed panel to the front and your fun fold is done. :O) Because I was playing with the stamp set and it’s coordinating dies, I stamped the very cute berry spray from Framed Florets stamp set and colored with Polished Pink Blends then added it to the inner Basic White panel with liquid glue.

Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Bundle Fun Fold.4

For the envelope I added more of the same pattern from the Fitting Florets DSP pack to the flap, trimmed to fit. I then then stamped this sweet flower from the Framed Florets stamp set in Memento Black ink on the envelope front & colored it with Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends. Just as a reminder, when using Stampin’ Blends on an envelope, slip a heavy card stock in the envelope so the alcohol ink color does not go through to the other side of the envelope :O)

Such a beautiful Suite of products – this Framed Florets. It includes two stamp sets (one of which is Christmas sentiments) and this one with floral & leaf patterns + various sentiments, coordinating Framed Florets Dies, the Fitting Florets DSP and the Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls. All of these are available to demonstrators now – and will be available to customers 1 Nov – Dec 31. After that point, only the Framed Florets, & coordinating Framed Florets Dies will be available in the Jan-Jun 2023 Mini Catalog. For other cards I have made with this bundle/ suite of products, see here & here.
