Stampin’ Up Fun Fold with Fine Art Floral DSP

Oh this was fun to create…and to build. And yes, when the fun fold is a new one, it really does seem like a building project πŸ™‚ The concern is, the finished product is 6 x 6 and that’s problematic creating an envelope. Having said that, I still like the card… and the idea.

Pinwheel Tower Card.1

Begin by cutting & scoring your card base: 7 x 6 and scored on the long side at 1, 2, 3, & 4. Burnish the folds and roll together to create a box. Adhere with liquid glue. It should look like this…

Pinwheel Tower Card.2

Attach to each of the flat edges a panel cut 3 x 6. There are three panels. It will look like this.

Pinwheel Tower Card.3

Decorate each side of the pinwheel – there are eight sides, four narrow and four wider. And you can embellish as much as you like. I kept mine fairly simple as I used the Fine Art Floral DSP and it is showy all by itself. Here are some of the decorated sides and I’ll give the card cuts below.

You can see I used the Tailor Made Tags Dies, Mossy Meadow Braided Trim and Poppy Moments Dies. For the sentiments I used Peaceful Moments and the Stamparatus for the ‘Happy Birthday’ and Encircled in Friendship for ‘You’re the BEST’.

Layer measurements:

  • Mossy Meadow card base 7 x 6 scored at 1, 2, 3, & 4; 3 x 6 (3) [for pinwheels]
  • Poppy Parade – 2 3/4 x 5 3/4 (4), 1 3/4 x 5 3/4 (4)
  • DSP layer (Fine Art Floral DSP, coordinating patterns) – 2 1/2 x 5 1/2 (4), 1 1/2 x 5 1/2 (4)

Decorations: I used Mossy Meadow & old Olive for the leaves; So Saffron and Basic Black for the flower buds.

When doing the layering panels, I found it helpful to have those that would be facing each other, side by side to make certain the layers matched in pattern and in spacing, then attached them to the pinwheel panels.

Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery #2

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… packages under the tree now means I did some wrapping yesterday! Ha – a bit more to do but feeling good about where I am in the process right now. How about you – you ready? Don’t wait, don’t hesitate…

Today’s card is made with new products available to customers beginning Jan 5, 2021. This is called Art Gallery & Floral Gallery Dies. It’s part of a suite that includes a 3D Embossing Folder that is awesome, some super ribbon, Gilded Leafing (which I haven’t played with yet!), Heat & Stick powder to adhere the leafing, and some incredible Golden Garden acetate & Fine Art Floral DSP. As I mentioned, the only product I haven’s used yet is the Gilded Leafing – so guess that’s on my ‘to do’ list, but maybe not today!

Art Gallery #2 – 1

I’ve used two coordinating papers from the Fine Art Floral DSP to create a fun background for the flower from the Art Gallery stamp set. The larger piece was adhered directly to the Thick Whisper White card base. My next step was to stamp the flower on Whisper White card stock in Merry Merlot, then the 2nd step stamp in Rococco Rose. I know, interesting combination… and the Rococco Rose doesn’t show much, which is ok. I then stamped the leaves & stem (one stamp) in Old Olive ink and die cut them both at the same time with the Floral Gallery Dies. I then die cut a second piece of the Fine Art Floral DSP using the third from largest die in Rectangle Stitched Dies. I adhered this stitched rectangle to a slightly larger panel of Flirty Flamingo card stock with liquid glue. This was attached to the floral card base with liquid glue. I adhered the flower with dimensionals to this panel, then the leaves/ stem with liquid glue, slipping it under the flower just a bit. I stamped the sentiment from the Art Gallery stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and die cut it with one of the dies in the Floral Gallery Dies. Don’t you love the fun edge? I adhered it with dimensionals, trimmed the end, added three Pearl Basic Jewels and called the front done.

For the inside of the card, I used the outline from the stitched rectangle die cut and adhered it to the inside of the card with liquid glue. I love this effect ~ it brings the colors of the front to the inside and creates boundaries as well. For the envelope I kept it very simple. I cut another piece of the Fine Art Floral DSP that coordinated with the two front DSP panels and adhered that with liquid glue to the flap. Here’s abetter photo.

Art Gallery #2 – 3
