Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Bundle Envelope Fun Fold

Hello again ~ Sat Sep 3, yikes the time is going f-a-s-t… Stampin’ Up has this super deal right now with Perfect Partners. What that means is they created dies to go with an existing stamp set and only during the month of September will they be available. Today I’m sharing some of the not so obvious dies in the bundle to create this fun envelope fold. Let’s take a peek.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Envelope Fun Fold.1

In this photo you can see the really fun apple blossoms and the wonderful branch. The flowers have intricate lines in each of the petals that really set them apart from other floral dies. And you can see there are two sizes of blossoms and the fun stamens as well. Gorgeousness. I added a single Glossy Dots Assortment in Daffodil Delight to the center of each blossom. And the branch is die cut from Soft Suede and has detail ridges and lines in it too – very delicate. The bottom front of this envelope fold is embossed in the Pretty Posies embossing folder. I like the added texture & pattern. The DSP is Gingham Cottage in Blushing Bride. I might note here that the smaller blossoms above were die cut from scrap of this DSP. The stamens were die cut from scrap of the Abigail Rose DSP used on the inside of the card. To make the v-shape for the distinctly ‘envelope’ card I used the Basic Borders Dies.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest Envelope Fun Fold.2, inside

The inside shows more of the Apple Blossom Dies at the top with the sentiment banner – that stamp & die are from the Apple Blossom Bundle, and at the bottom with the beautiful scallop. What you see is a strip from the die cut, the bottom, and the very delicate upper scallop is the real deal. Both sentiments on this are from the Apple Blossom stamp set.

The upper portion of the envelope flap is covered in Abigail Rose DSP using a Smoky Slate piece to coordinate with the card base.

Stampin' Up! Apple Blossom Envelope Fun Fold.3

The photo above shows the entire length of the card – back side. It’s clear I used two sizes of the plaid from Gingham Cottage DSP – love the contrast.

Stampin' Up! Apple Blossom Envelope Fun Fold.4

For the envelope – more of the same Blushing Bride Gingham Cottage DSP for the flap. At the bottom of the envelope is the remainder of the scallop die cut from the Apple Blossom Dies. Here’s what I did… I began with a strip about 1 x 6 and used the scallop die close to one edge lengthwise. After running it through the Cut & Emboss machine it left three pieces – this is the last of those and the piece closest to the edge when die cut.

I can’t wait to play more with this Apple Harvest Bundle – such a beautiful set. The stamp set is from the Jul-Dec catalog, but the bundle is new. You can purchase each of these individually, but with 10% off when bundled, why would you?

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints and Sun Prints for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello & happy Thursday! It’s our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop with a color challenge… and you can see my card that I created for it. Nature’s Prints and the coordinating Sun Prints DSP are just so perfect together. It doesn’t mean they MUST be used together ~ they just CAN BE… and I did! And – it’s a fun fold to boot. Not sure what to call it… I’m going to call it an envelope fold, cuz that’s what it looks like to me. :O)

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints & Sun Prints, fun fold

I began with a piece of Pacific Point card stock as it coordinates so nicely with the Sun Prints DSP. I scored then trimmed the right side as shown… marking the center point and trimming 1″ in from the top & bottom to the center mark.. It really is important to be very precise in your cutting – ask me how I know that! Trim 1/8″ from the left edge of the card base so it does not interfere with the fold. Cut your Sun Prints DSP: panel for the left front and another for the right pointy part. Card cuts are listed at the bottom of this post. Cut your center panel in Basic White. Stamp this Basic White panel.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints w/ Sun Prints DSP, fun fold

I used the leaf stamp from Nature’s Prints and Starry Sky ink, stamped the first leaf full strength and continued with the next two without re-inking. I stamped the sentiment from Nature’s Prints stamp set in the same Starry Sky ink, stamped off once. Adhere this to the inside of the card.

Back to the front of the card… I used a 1 5/9 circle from the Layering Circles Dies to cut the circle in the pointy part of the fun fold. I cut another circle in Thick Basic White with the same circle die and stamped it: sentiment in stamped off Starry Sky, then the two portions of the fern – inking, stamping off, then stamping in place. The sentiment and the fern leaf are from the Nature’s Prints stamp set. I closed the card and adhered the circle to the left portion of the card but in the place of the hole of the right side. Does that make sense? I adhered it with liquid glue.

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints with Sun Prints , fun fold

To keep the envelope fun fold closed, I cut a piece of the Sun Prints DSP with the very smallest of the Layering Circles Dies.. I also cut another circle from Pacific Point card stock and adhered these two together, put a few dimensionals on the back and with the card closed, put the small circle in place.

Stampin' Up! nature's Prints w/ Sun Prints, fun fold

I stamped the sentiment – again from Nature’s Prints stamp set in full strength Starry Sky on a Basic White strip. I did a bit of fussy cutting then adhered it to another piece of Pacific Point and adhered it to the card front on the cut ‘like envelope’ side. I added three Classic Matte Dots and the card was done!

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints w/ Sun Prints, fun fold

For the envelope… another of the wonderful nature images stamped on the envelope front and flap with Starry Sky ink, the flap image stamped off. And that was it! Pretty simple really. The tricky part is the cutting to the center of the piece and trimming the DSP perfectly.

Now, take a few moments to work your way through this fun hop.

Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest Hello Card

Hello FRIENDS! Yesterday I shared a card using the Hello Harvest Bundle from the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog. Well, I couldn’t put it down ~ so bear with me while I share another card using more of the dies and stamps. My colors were Gray Granite, Pool Party & Soft Succulent. Let’s take a look…

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest Bundle

What do you think? Does this look like a pumpkin? My hubby doesn’t think so 😩, but it does to me! Due to some experienced gardeners, pumpkins come in all colors these days. Mine began with Basic White, die cut with the Rustic Harvest Dies. I then used my Blending Brushes to add some color: a bit of Gray Granite ink, then Mango Melody ink – very lightly. These are two dies for the pumpkin body and another for the stem. I adhered all parts together with liquid glue, put dimensionals on the back and set it aside. My next step was to run a Basic White panel through the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder and add color to it with Blending Brushes and Gray Granite ink then Pool Party ink. Once I had it the way I wanted, I adhered it to a slightly larger Pool Party card stock, added dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the Gray Granite card base. I pulled out this leaf stamp from the Hello Harvest stamp set and Soft Succulent ink. I stamped off, then with a Sponge Dauber added a bit of Gray Granite ink on some of the leaf tips, then stamped it on a Basic White scrap. I did this three times, varying where I added the Gray Granite ink with the Sponge Dauber, then die cut each one with the leaf die from the Rustic Harvest Dies. I really like this leaf! Next I stamped the cute flower from the Hello Harvest stamp set in Memento ink and colored it with Stampin’ Blends in Mango Melody. These three flowers were die cut with the flower die in the Rustic Harvest Dies. I die cut various tendrils from Evening Evergreen card stock. Now everything was stamped, colored, and die cut, I could put the card front pieces together.

I lay the pieces out first so as to get the layering right… and in this case, I started with the leaves, then the pumpkin, flowers and finally the tendrils. Adhere in place on the card front: leaves with liquid glue; pumpkin of course is on dimensionals; flowers… one is bent so it has glue while the other two are on dimensionals; tendrils are glued as well. Final touches… a double bow made by cutting the Open Weave 3/8″ Ribbon in Soft Succulent, in half lengthwise, looping twice and securing with Simply Elegant Trim in Gold. I adhered this in place with a glue dot; and three Amber Gems from the Leaf Label and Amber Gems Combo Pack.

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest Bundle, inside

For the inside, stamp the Hello in Soft Succulent ink on the Basic White standard size panel. Of course this comes from the Hello Harvest stamp set! Then stamp that sweet floral bouquet in stamped off Pool Party ink. Adhere this to a Pool Party card stock piece cut just slightly larger, then into the inside of the Gray Granite card base.

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest Bundle, card & envelope

For the envelope, again using the same leaf from the Hello Harvest stamp set, I stamped off with the Soft Succulent ink then used a Sponge Dauber and Gray Granite ink to add ink to the leaf stamp on the tips, then stamped on the front of the envelope, reinked in the same way and stamped on the flap. The card is finis! I really really like this card! What do you think? Does the main image look like a pumpkin or not?

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.

Stampin’ Up! Angled Gatefold

Hello there! It’s Tuesday and time for another fun fold design I think you will like. It features the Happy Forest Friends DSP in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog and the stamp bundle, Happier Than Happy stamp set along with its coordinating dies. I didn’t use the coordinating dies but did pull in dies from All That Dies from He’s All That bundle to use on the belly band.

Angled Gatefold.1

Is this pretty DSP? Calypso Coral is its main feature and I’ve used that color for the card base. I’ve seen this style card on Pinterest a lot and have wanted to give it a try. The tricky part is the layering pieces and getting the proper angles. It took me a couple of tries, but I’m pretty please with the final card. There are plenty of videos for you to see first-hand how this is done, but I will try to explain it. I do encourage a watching a video though!

The card base is 5 1/2 x 11, scored at 3 3/8 from each side. With the inside of the card facing down, measure down 1 1/2″ from the top right corner: trim from the score line to the 1 1/2″ mark. With the inside of the card still facing down, measure in 1″ along the bottom of the card and trim from the corner just cut to the 1″ mark. Do the same on the other side. Refer to these two photos for reference.

Angled Gatefold.2
Angled Gatefold.3

The next step is to cut the same angles on a 3 1/8 x 5 1/4 piece of DSP. Tricks here are to make certain which papers you desire for each side and trimming them properly :O) For me, I decided to use computer paper to make a template – and that took a couple of tries to get the cut the way I wanted it. I used that template to cut the Happy Forrest Friends DSP, then adhered it in place with liquid glue. Make sure the papers line up on the bottom edge in particular, so when the card is closed, they are even. Here’s a photo without the belly band on the card.

Angled Gatefold.4

Now work on the inside… On a Basic White panel 4 x 51/4, I stamped this uber-cute bear in Smoky Slate ink. I then stamped the two leaf sprays, also in the same ink. I used the sentiment from Happier Than Happy stamp set & Calypso Coral ink to stamp the words. I adhered this in place with liquid glue. and created the belly band.

Angled Gatefold, inside.5

The belly band is 1 x 10 in Calypso Coral and scored at one end at 2 1/4″. Wrap this around the card with the scored end to the left and fold the other side over, firming the second fold. Add Tear n’ Tape to each end and secure while around the card. This helps make the belly band not too tight :O) … ask me how I know that! Decorate the belly band: In Smoky Slate card stock, make the rectangle using a die from the All That Dies. Secure in place on the belly band, covering the fold over, with liquid glue. Die cut this fun-edged circle with another die from All That Dies and Basic White card stock. Stamp the sentiment from Eden’s Garden with Smoky Slate ink. Before placing the circle over the rectangle, i felt it needed a bit of trim – and came up with Pale Papaya Open Weave 3/8″ Ribbon. I secured it to the rectangle with Stampin’ Seal, then added the circle with dimensionals. Three Classic Matte Dots in gray were added to tie it all together.

Angled Gatefold.1

For the envelope I added more of the Happy Forrest Friends DSP to the flap and that was it!

Angled Gatefold.6

This card is going to a friend who is moving, so the inside sentiment, hello baby, is an endearing term for friend. At least, that’s how I’m using it! If this were a true baby card, I would use totally different DSP…

Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish with Layers

WooHoo! It is for many a l-o-n-g weekend! Happy Memorial Day celebrations. Thanks you Veterans for your service to our country. We DO appreciate you! I’ve another easy card for you today, creating with the Deckled Rectangles Dies and Designer Series Paper, Awash in Beauty 12 x 12, and the Biggest Wish stamp set.

Biggest Wish w/ Layers.1

This card has many layers and it’s colorful. Polished Pink is one of the In Colors from last year and it is b-r-i-g-h-t! And… it has made, in my opinion, this particular pattern or patterns of DSP really pop.

  • Begin with a card base of Polished pink. Layer the Basic White panel, then the DSP (Awash in Beauty) that has been die cut with the largest Deckled Rectangles Dies. Adhere these together as shown.
  • Using the 4th largest of the Deckled Rectangles, cut another of the Polished Pink. Layer a panel of Basic White then the final layer of Awash in Beauty, also die cut with the Deckled Rectangles. Adhere all together.
  • Wrap these layers with 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon in White and secure in back with Stampin’ Seal
  • Wrap Open Weave Ribbon in Polished Pink directly over the Organdy Ribbon and secure in back with more Stampin’ Seal. Slip a length of the Polished Pink Open Weave Ribbon under the Organdy and tie a bow on the far left.
  • Stamp the ‘Hello’ in Mossy Meadow ink from the Biggest Wish stamp set and die cut with one of the Stylish Shapes Dies.
  • Stamp the ‘friend’ from the same stamp set (love the varied fonts here!) in Polished Pink ink and fussy cut. Put dimensionals on the back of this word and add it to the die cut circle.
  • Put dimensionals on the back of the die cut circle and add it over the ribbon. For centering, I used the bottom of the word ‘hello’ to line up with the bottom of the ribbon
  • Add three Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the circle and the front is complete.

True confessions… I have not completed the inside of this card. I simply could not decide what I wanted. I do not have, but am ordering today, the True Beauty Bundle that coordinates with this DSP. When it arrives, I will complete the inside and share it with you. For now, I have used the largest Deckled Rectangles Die to cut an inner layer to decorate. It is, of course in Basic White.

Biggest Wish w/ Layers, inside

For the envelope… more of the Mossy Meadow Awash in Beauty DSP for the flap. For the front of the envelope, I took an edge of the rectangle die cut, trimmed the ends and added it to the bottom. Once that coordinating True Beauty Bundle is here, I will add one of the floral stamps :O)

Stampin’ Up! Happiness Abounds Bundle

Hello and happy Friday! We have had cool, rainy weather lately and this weekend is to be 93 degrees! WOW… hard to believe the contrast min temps. Whatever your plans are this weekend, just be safe while you’re having fun. My card today uses the Blossoming Happiness Dies for the background and I used the Medium Daisy Punch for the flower. This was the first I used these Dies and I’m hooked – love this background die! Here’s the card…

Happiness Abounds Friend.1

The Tea Boutique 6×6 DSP has some beautiful papers in it. I decided to use the ‘back side’ for the daisy using the Fresh Fresia design and the Daffodil Delight design for the crosswise banner. I think it pulls everything together. For the center of the flower, I used a die from the Poppy Moments Dies, then popped a Glossy Dots Assortment in the Daffodil Delight for the flower center and two other dots.Here’s the step by step…

  • Die cut the background with the largest of the dies in Blossoming Happiness Dies – moving the die so it cut in two places, on a piece of Basic White card stock. This was mounted on a Thick Basic White card base.
  • Punch three daisies from Tea Boutique 6×6 in Fresh Fresia. Adhere together with liquid glue. Die cut a center for the flower using another piece of the Tea Boutique 6×6 but in Daffodil Delight, using the Poppy Moments Dies. Add to the flower with a mini dimensional. Add a Glossy Dots Assortment in Daffodil Delight to the Daisy.
  • Cut a strip of the Tea Boutique 6×6 DSP in Daffodil Delight 3/4″ x about 4 and cut an angle at one end. For contrast add a length of Starry Sky about 5/8″ x 3″ and add to the back of the DSP with liquid glue. Add dimensionals to the back and add to the card front. Add the daisy with liquid glue.
  • Stamp the word ‘friend’ in Starry Sky ink using the Happiness Bounds stamp set. Card front done!
Happiness Abounds Friend, inside

For the inside of the card… Stamp the very sweet bouquet in Memento ink. With Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends, color the flowers. Add the bow with 2022-2024 In Color Baker’s Twine in Starry Sky with a glue dot. Of course this was on a Basic White panel. Adhere to the inside and bingo… card done!

Happiness Abounds Friend.3

For the envelope.. add more of the Tea Boutique 6×6 DSP to the envelope flap, same as the front of the card. Stamp the same cute bouquet to the envelope front in Memento ink and color the flowers with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.

This is such a lovely feminine card and I really, really like it ~ hope you do as well.

Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles take Two

Happy post Mother’s Day – I hope all those nurturing women realize how precious they are! Today’s card will put a mile on your face: bright, cheerful and well, just lovely. Let’s have a look.

Sending Smiles take 2

I’ve used the new Sending Smiles bundle (coordinating Sending Dies), Fern 3D Embossing Folder (it’s gorgeous!) 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP and 2022-2024 In Color Matte Dots. For the sentiment I used Nature’s Prints stamp set – also a newbie, Lovely Layers Vellum and the Banners Pick a Punch. You could take this same layout and create this card using all the new In Colors. I haven’t, but you could. Let’s do the step by step…

  • Run a panel of Basic White through the Fern 3D embossing Folder (4 1/8 x 5 3/8). This folder makes a very nice impression. If you want it a bit more, you can lightly spray it with water and it leaves a deeper impression.
  • Add this panel to a Thick Basic White card base with liquid glue.
  • Cut a piece 2 x 3 1/2 from Sweet Sorbet 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP
  • Cur another piece from the Layering Vellum pack that is 2 x 3
  • Place the two panels at an angle on the card front and adhere. To do that with the vellum panel use just a bit of Stampin’ Seal.
  • Stamp the flower in Sweet Sorbet on a Basic White scrap & die cut. Set aside.
  • Stamp the larger stem in the new Parakeet Party ink on Basic White. Stamp it again in Garden Green and die cut both. I removed the Garden green leaves from the stem with paper snips and added them to the Parakeet Party stem, off-setting a bit so both colors show: the single leaf was added with liquid glue, the others with dimensionals. Adhere the stem directly to the card front with liquid glue, then add the flower on dimensionals
  • I added a banner (5/8 by about 3 3/4) from the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP in Sweet Sorbet. The end was trimmed with the Banners Pick a punch, then adhered with dimensionals.
  • I used Nature’s Prints stamp set for my sentiment, stamped in Memento ink – cuz I really really like the font. This was die cut with the amazing Stylish Shapes Dies. Add this to the card front, dimensionals on the top & liquid glue on the banner.
  • For a final touch, I popped on two 2022-2024 In Color Matte Dots in Parakeet Party and the card front was done.
Sending Smiles take two, inside

I kept the inside super easy but wanted the colors to come through. A 4 x 5 1/4 panel of the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP in Sweet Sorbet was added to the inside with liquid glue. Then I cut a panel of Basic White 3 3/4 x 5, stamped the flower in Sweet Sorbet, center with Daffodil Delight and the stem with Parakeet Party, adhered it to the inside and bingo.

Sending Smiles take 2

For the envelope, I created the very same flower for the envelope front: stem in Parakeet Party, flower in Sweet Sorbet and flower center in Daffodil Delight. The flap got more of the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP, this time in Parakeet Party – done, done. Love how cheerful and friendly this card is.

Stampin’ Up! Eden Hugs

Hello… it’s Wednesday… another 1″ of rain last night after 2 1/2″ in the early morning. That’s a lot of rain! And today ~ gale force winds starting soon @ 17 mph and going up from there. Leaves are beginning to turn, so fall it is. My card today uses the new Eden Garden bundle available to customers Nov 2. I’ll be using this bundle again on Friday in a totally different way… hint, hint. But for today..

Eden Hugs.1

There is LOTS of white space on this card. But it’s elegant with that stunning die cut along the bottom using the Eden Dies. I added Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon & Holiday Rhinestone Gems in Night of Navy. The basic White panel is layered on Night of Navy card stock, then with dimensionals added to the Gray Granite card base. The sentiment on the front is Night of Navy ink and the Eden Garden stamp set.

Eden Hugs.2

For the inside, I stamped this distinctive bouquet in Night of Navy ink, AND the sentiment in the same ink ~ both using the Eden Garden stamp set. So this bouquet is a distinctive stamp, which means it has depth variation that creates what I’ll call multiple layers or depth to the stamp. That’s quite evident with this bouquet stamp as you can see the very dark to the light. I’ve kept this card in the muted tones, but it might be really pretty in Pale Papaya or even Polished Pink. Think I’ll have to try that… :}

Eden Hugs.3

For the envelope it’s just the same bouquet stamped in Night of Navy ink on the front. This produced a better bouquet in my opinion, less ink somehow. Let me remind you that with distinctive stamps it is better if your ink pad is not too inky. And that’s it for today. I hope you like this card. I didn’t at first but I really like that die cut and the ribbon/ bow adds a nice touch.

Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! The theme this week is LEAVES – and interpret that however we like – so… here goes! Be sure to follow along to see all the wonderful projects.

No photo description available.
Gorgeous Leaves Bundle.1

My goodness, did I have fun with this card. See that stunning color on the inside of the rectangle? Love, love. And it was created with several colors… but I get ahead of myself just a bit. Begin with a panel of Very Vanilla card stock and using the Stitched Rectangle Dies, die cut and remove the center. With Blending Brushes create this gorgeousness: begin with Crushed Curry, then Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, and finally Cherry Cobbler inks. Beginning with the lightest of colors and continuing to add each layer, this beauty was created. The next step was to use a Water Painter and flick water droplets, which takes some of the color away. I actually did this process twice so I could die cut leaves from the second piece. That second leaf above is cut from the additional creation. Before die cutting it though, I stamped it with Soft Suede ink using the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set, stamped off once, then die cut with Intricate Leaves Dies. The top leaf is also die cut with one of the Intricate Leaves Dies – and from the Gold & Rose Gold Metallic Specialty 6×6 paper. I then colored it with Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends and accented it with Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends. I added a bit of Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends to the stem and into a bit of the vein on this leaf. My next die cut was the tiny leaf from Gold Foil. I adhered these to the frame of the Very Vanilla with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede ink using a sentiment from Forever Blossoms stamp set. I put dimensionals on the back of this Very Vanilla panel but did not attach it yet. First I placed the panel on the card base, then laid the gorgeous colored rectangle on the Very vanilla card front & adhered it with liquid glue. I then adhered the front panel so it was ‘square’ with the inner piece.

Gorgeous Leaves Bundle.2

Here is another of the die cut leaves using the Intricate Leaves Dies, cut from the additional colored panel. Once I adhered the leaf with liquid glue, I flicked Soft Suede ink of the Very Vanilla panel, but not all over, just in places. I then stamped the sentiment (from Party Puffins stamp set) in Pumpkin Pie ink. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card – and bingo, the card was done!

Gorgeous Leaves Bundle.3

For the envelope I stamped this fun leaf (I think it’s a maple leaf) from Gorgeous Leaves stamp set with Pumpkin Pie ink and sponged daubed on the edges Cherry Cobbler ink. The front leaf is full strength. The leaves on the flap were 2nd & 3rd generation stamping. You can see the Blending Brushes used here in this photo – and the beautiful detail of the Intricate Leaves Die to create the top leaf.

For this card in particular, I kept wanting to add something, metallic adhesive-backed gems or linen thread or doodles along the right. But I stopped. The look is clean.
