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! Fun, Fun Fold with Desert Details and Favored Flowers DSP

Good Friday morning! While I wait for more wonderful Stampin’ Up! products from the new January-April 2023 Mini Catalog, I’m sharing some fabulous Designer Series Papers FREE with a $50 order – Sale-a-bration products. And yep – order any Stampin’ Up! products January-February to receive these items. Today’s card is a fun fold – not sure if it really has a name or title. If it does, please let me know.

Stampin' Up! Desert Detail Fun Fold

This particular DSP coordinates pretty well with a stamp set that’s still on it’s way to me. So I looked at other new products I had on hand and decided to use Desert Details as a substitute – I think it works, and I really like the fun, light sentiments – all of which come from Desert Details Bundle.

Stampin' Up! Desert Detail Fun Fold.2
Stampin' Up! Desert Detail Fun Fold.3

  • Cut the card base in Petal Pink: add the Favored Flowers Designer Series Papers to the inside back and the front flap.
  • Cut the inside card panel and adhere to the card base, centering. I used Basic Black for card stock.
    • Decorate the front of this panel with another piece of the Favored Flowers DSP
    • Stamp the large flower from Desert Details stamp set in Petal Pink and die cut with Desert Details Dies.
    • Cut a Basic Black circle with the Layering Circle Dies. Add the die cut flower with liquid glue. Add circle to the panel front.
    • Stamp the sentiment banner in Memento Black ink using a sentiment from Desert Details stamp set. The strip is Basic White. Add over the flower with dimensionals.
    • Add Wink of Stella to this flower to give the sparkle – just in the shaded areas.
  • For this inside panel: Basic White stamped with the sentiment in Petal Pink ink then stamp the smaller flower also in Petal Pink ink. Add this panel to the inside of the card – and done!
Stampin' Up! Desert Detail Fun Fold.4

For the envelope, more of the Favored Flowers DSP for the flap and the same smaller flower from Desert Details stamp set in Petal Pink for the front. Wasn’t that easy & fun? A fun, Fun Fold! Dimensions to make this card are at the bottoms of this post.

Stampin’ Up! Fancy Flora Tent Fun Fold Sympathy

Welcome back to 2023 – January 2! Which means… by January 3 please let me know your desire for a Paper Share… 😀 I’ll add that information below as a refresher for you. Today’s card is unfortunately a sympathy card and will go out immediately. I never seem to have enough of these, ugh. It is also a tent fold.

Stampin' Up! Fancy Flora Tent Fun Fold Sympathy
Stampin' Up! Fancy Flora Tent Fun Fold Sympathy.2

Do you see in photo 2 how the tent fold looks? It is so incredibly simple – an added piece of card stock adhered to the front & card back.

Isn’t this Fancy Flora DSP just wonderful? This particular pattern is Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight, & shades of both. I’ve added a bit of Shimmer Ribbon in Gold behind the sentiment banner. The sentiment comes from Something Fancy & is stamped in Basic Gray ink on Basic White. It was die cut with the Something Fancy Dies. I also used a retired product called Red & Green Adhesive-Backed Pearls in Silver.

Now, let’s take a look at the back of the card.

Stampin' Up! Fancy Flora Tent Fun Fold Sympathy.3

I’ve kept with the same colors: Daffodil Delight & Basic Gray, stamping each of the flower detail as the second step. The flowers are just stunning to me with the magic of the detail. I stamped the leaf images in Soft Succulent – all on Basic White and matted it on a Basic Gray panel then adhered it to the back.

Stampin' Up! Fancy Flora Tent Fun Fold Sympathy.4

The last is the envelope… more of the Fancy Flora DSP for the flap, trimmed to fit. For the front of the envelope, I stamped these sweet small flowers, again using Daffodil Delight as the fill and Basic Gray for the detail.The flowers and leaves all are from Two-Tone Flora – just a beautiful stamp set. And while I didn’t use the dies for this card, it does have coordinating dies – 10% off when purchasing the bundle. That is also available coming January 5, 2023. If you don’t have a Jan-Apr 2023 Mini Catalog, please let me know so I can send one ASAP! And of course I’ll include the Sale-a-bration catalog as well – it’s good Jan-Feb and has lots of fun products FREE with every $50-$100 purchase. YAY!

Stampin’ Up! Sneaky Peek At The Pond Hinge Fun Fold

Happy Happy 2023!I’ve been a bit out of the loop for a bit – hubby had surgery & my attention was all about that, then Christmas & family – and now, here we are. I hope you had a really good holiday, however you celebrate things. Ours was quieter, of course, but still wonderful. We are so blessed with wonderful family. – and hubby is improving every day. 👍🙏

My card today is a sneaky peek at one of the HOST stamp options for the Jan-Apr 2023 Mini Catalog, which will be available come Jan 5. And that’s just really soon! I’ve also used some DSP that is free with a qualifying order during the Jan-Feb Sale-a-bration period – Dainty Flowers DSP.

Stampin' Up! At The Pond Hinge Fun Fold

Isn’t this a cute, sassy frog? I’m going to name him Alfred – and no, I have no idea where that came from. 😀 You can see there are no flowers on this side of the Dainty Flowers DSP – it looks similar to watercolors – love, love. And the hinge flap has a sentiment from another new stamp set called Sending Support – also FREE with a qualifying order during Jan-Feb Sale-a-bration. I’ve die cut the sentiment with Stylish Shapes Dies. I extended the length of the die cut a bit to make the sentiment fit. But I’ll explain that.

Hinge Flap Fun Fold:

  • Cut card base 81/2 x 5 1/2 and score at 4 1/4 on the long side.
  • Trim off 1 1/2 from the long side; score this at 4 1/4
  • Adhere this strip to the card base about 3/4″ from bottom with the fold on the edge (I adhered it lower and don’t like where it is!) This is now your hinge flap!

Decorate:

  • Cut panels of DSP: front – 1 3/4 x 2 1/2; hinge flap – 1 1/4 x 4; inside – 1 3/4 x 4; envelope flap – 2 1/4 x 6
  • Cut Basic White panels: front – 2 1/2 x 4; inside 4 x 5 1/4; sentiment banner for hinge flap 1 1/4 x 3
  • On the front panel:
    • Stamp the frog in Old Olive – this is a two-step stamp, so stamp the inner then the outline
    • Stamp the log in Soft Suede – again aa two-step stamp, stamp the inner then then outline stamp
    • Stamp the bee in Crushed Curry & Memento inks – CC for the wings, then the body in Memento
    • Add this panel to the card front
  • On the inside panel:
    • Add the 1 3/4 x 4 DSP to the far right edge
    • Stamp the sentiment in Rich Razzleberry ink using the Sending Support stamp set
    • Adhere this to the inside of the card, covering where the hinge flap is attached
  • On the hinge flap:
    • Add DSP to the flap (1 1/4 x 4)
    • Stamp the sentiment in Rich Razzleberry ink from Sending Support stamp set on the remaining Basic White strip
    • Die cut using the Stylish Shapes Dies: Die cut about 2/3 of length by placing the top cutting plate so it covers just 2/3 of die; run it through the die cutting machine; replace die to cover other end of stamped sentiment, matching or lining up die, then placing top cutting plate just over that area to be die cut, run it through the die cutting machine – and done!
    • Attache die cut sentiment to hinge flap with dimensionals
  • Add Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to both hinge flap and card front

All that’s left to do now is the envelope & it is so easy…

  • Add 2 1/4 x 6 piece of Dainty Flowers DSP to the envelope flap & trim to fit
  • Stamp the small bees 3 times on envelope front in Crushed Curry ink using the At The Pond stamp set

Stampin’ Up! Adorable Owls Fun Fold

Oh my goodness… I received some preorder items from the Jan-April Mini Catalog along with a few Jan/Feb Sale-a-bration items and I’m having SO MUCH FUN! Today’s card features Dandy Designs DSP and the Adorable Owls stamp set from the Sale-a-bration catalog – AND it’s a super easy Fun Fold. Let’s take a peek…

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Fun Fold

Isn’t this little guy just the cutest! And the sentiment ‘Hoot! Hoot!’ is also from the Adorable Owls stamp set. Actually it’s a partial sentiment… meaning I used some retired Washi tape to cover the part I didn’t want to use. I also used some White 6×6 Glimmer Paper for the upper DSP. The other DSP is called Dandy Designs DSP and is a large pack of 30 sheets of 12×12. The dots are the reverse of the sideways stripes. :O) Let me share with you how to make this fun fold design…

  • Cut the card base (here it is Balmy Blue) 5 1/2 x 7 1/4 and score @ 4 1/4
  • Cut another panel of Balmy Blue 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 (that’s the front largest square)
  • Cut DSP:
    • 2 3/4 x 5 1/4 (here I used the White 6×6 Glimmer Paper)
    • 4 x 5 1/4 for inside panel
    • 3 1/4 x 3 14
  • Adhere panels to the appropriate places with adhesive of choice.
  • Stamp the owl from Adorable Owls stamp set in Memento Black ink on Basic White panel
  • Color owl with Stampin’ Blends
    • Light & Dark Soft Suede for the body of the owl
    • Dark Daffodil Delight for the eyes
    • Dark Basic Black – for the smaller portion of the eyes
    • Light Basic Black for the beak + Color Lifter for highlighting
    • Dark Pumpkin Pie for the bow tie
  • Chalk Marker (white) for the eye highlight
  • Die cut owl panel with Stylish Shapes Dies
  • Adhere owl to the square panel, centering, with dimensionals
  • Stamp the sentiment from Adorable Owls stamp set, covering unwanted portion, in Memento Black
  • Adhere to square panel with mini dimensionals. The right end of the sentiment will need stacked dimensionals
  • Adhere completed square to top panel only

For the inside… cut another Basic White Square 3 1/4 x 3 1/4. Stamp owl as listed above & color. Stamp sentiment using the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Memento Black ink. To adhere… open card, lay this panel on the upper panel right side down & upside down, centering it on the square. Add adhesive and close the bottom portion of the card on the piece. Bingo – attached properly 😀👍

For the envelope… more of the same Balmy Blue & White stripe pattern from Dandy Designs DSP – on the flap of course. I chose not to stamp anything on the envelope front. This card was sent already… to a man friend who recently had surgery. I hope he likes it – and he feels better too!

Stampin’ Up! Something Fancy Sympathy Fun Fold

Good Monday to you. Sympathy cards are so very difficult and yet, necessary. Have I said that before? I tend to make sympathy cards for a specific person – and maybe that’s why it’s hard for me. I’m remembering the person who passed and get focused on the memories. So I struggle a bit. This card is in memory of a special woman, one who battled Lewey Body Dementia for six very long years. She and her husband have been so amazingly strong. And now her battle is over and she is at peace.

I’m using some new products from the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog:the Something Fancy stamp set and coordinating Something Fancy Dies. Notice how Stampin’ Up! is now using same names for coordinating stamp sets & dies?! YAY, YAY! Thank you Stampin’ Up! Here is the stamp set & coordinating dies. I’m excited to have some wonderful banner/ sentiment dies.

And now my card…

Stampin' Up! Something Fancy Sympathy Fun Fold.1
Stampin' Up! Something Fancy Sympathy 

Fun Fold.2

The DSP is Fitting Florets 12×12 DSP – available right now. It coordinates with the Framed Florets bundle – the Fitting Florets Collection. Let me tell you how to make this beautiful card.

Begin with a standard 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 card base and score on the long side 1″ and 4 1/4″. Fold back the 1″ area on itself. Decorate panels… I used the Fitting Florets DSP and also used the Quatrefoil Embossing Folder in two areas. The front embossed piece is 2 1/2 x 3 1/2. After embossing, it was adhered to a larger panel 2 3/4 x 3 3/4. I used one of the dies in the Framed Florets Dies to trim out a flower from the Fitting Florets 12×12 DSP. I stamped the sentiment from Something Fancy stamp set and die cut it with one of the dies in the Something Fancy Dies. I adhered the die cut floral bouquet to the front of this sentiment banner, put dimensionals on the back of both and attached it to the rectangle. The rectangle was adhered to the 1″ panel, centering in top to bottom. Really like this Quatrefoil EF as a backdrop for the sentiment & floral bouquet.

Stampin' Up! Something Fancy Sympathy Fun Fold, inside.1

For the inside on the left, a panel of the Fitting Florets 12×12 DSP. On the right a 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ strip embossed with the Quatrefoil Embossing Folder adhered to the far right edge. I then stamped the sentiment from Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Night of Navy ink. I added Adhesive-Backed Swirls~ and the card was done. I really like how this card turned out: beautiful for a beautiful woman.

Stampin' Up! Something Fancy Sympathy Fun Fold.5

For the envelope – super easy – more of the Fitting Florets DSP adhered to the envelope flap & trimmed to fit.

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! Boughs of Holly Fun Fold for the Thursday Happy Inkin’ Blog Hop

Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop Day! We have a color change this week and I have created a fun fold and used lots of DSP & layers :O) You may have joined me from the fabulous Tara and if so, thanks for hopping over.

Stampin' Up! Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop
Stampin' Up! Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop color challenge

And here’s my card…

Stampin' Up! Boughs of Holly Fun Fold. Thu Hop

I’ve used Boughs of Holly 12 x 12 DSP, the Mistletoe Magic stamp set, Stitched Rectangles Dies and a few other Stampin’ Up! products to make this stunning card. It’s bold, it catches your eye, but it is not gawdy by any means. Love this fun fold and I’ve made it before – just not very recently. Let’s see if I can break this down so you too, can make this fun fold.

The card base is Cherry Cobbler card stock. The next layer is either Basic White or Mossy Meadow followed by the Boughs of Holly DSP. You can also see that I added a Wonderful Snowflake at one corner to just ‘show off’. I really like the accent it makes :O) The sentiment on the front is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink with the Mistletoe Magic stamp set. I happen to really like this font so you may see it often. It was die cut with one of the Stitched Rectangles and is adhered with dimensionals to the small folded card in front. I’ve added a few Iridescent Pearls to the die cut for a bit of sparkle.

Stampin' Up! Boughs of Holly Fun Fold Thu Hop.2

In this photo you can see how the inside of the card opens – and the Wonderful Snowflake shows to its fullest glory. This also shows off the beautiful Boughs of Holly DSP.

Stampin' Up! Boughs of Holly Fun Fold Thu Hop.3

In the far right photo you can see the full inside of the card. And here’s the thing – you would not have to have both panels in stamped Basic White. The one on the left could just as easily be another panel of DSP. Both panels are stamped with Memento ink. The bow is colored with Cherry Cobbler Blends, while the mistletoe is colored with Garden Green reinker and a Water Painter + Cherry Cobbler Blends for the berries. The sentiment is from Mistletoe Magic also and stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink. This will be a card in which lots of news updates will be written. :O)

Stampin' Up! Boughs of Holly DSP Fun Fold Thu Hop.4

In this photo you can see the full front of the card with the focus on the small card & the ribbon. The ribbon is attached on the Basic White card front with the Mossy Meadow & DSP layers adhered over it. The ribbon is Natural Finish Ribbon and I love it. It can be stamped and it makes a wonderful bow.

Here the mini card is open to show off more DSP.

Stampin' Up! Boughs of Holly Fun Fold Thu Hop.6

And the photo on the right show the mini card fully opened. You could just as easily have the stamped panel on the right & DSP on the left. I might prefer that another time; this is just how it came together this time. The stamped panel is stamped in Memento ink using the Mistletoe Magic stamp set & colored with Real Red Blends and Garden Green reinker & a Water Painter. Add reinker to the lid of the Garden green ink pad, add a single drop of water from the Water painter, swish around to ink the brush and paint the leaves without adding any water at all.

Stampin' Up! Boughs of Holly Fun Fold Thu Hop.7

This photo shows exactly the ribbon and how it ‘fits’ holding the card. It is only attached under the mini card front, while the rest is loose to wrap around the card to secure it closed and make a half bow.

Stampin' Up! Boughs of Holly Fun Fold Thu Hop.8

Here you see the finished card and the envelope: more of the Boughs of Holly DSP on the flap and on the front the beautiful mistletoe from Mistletoe Magic stamp set. And yep – stamped in Memento ink, colored with Cherry Cobbler Blends and Garden Green Reinker with a Water Painter. All card cuts will be listed below. I look forward to you sharing your creations with me.

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.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.
