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. The Real Red Rhinestones are from the Annual Catalog. The entire list of supplies is below. When ordering, please also use my current host code: KJ3MEDQ9 and remember I offer Star-Studded Rewards.

Stampin’ Up! Cottage Wreath Fun Fold

Hello Wednesday! Hello world! It’s our daughter’s birthday today – kid #2 – just had to share that :O) She has taken the day off so I’m hoping we can do something fun with her today. At any rate… happy birthday to our dear Wendy 💖

My card for today is a fall fun fold – do you like that alliteration? It uses Cottage Wreaths bundle (Country Wreaths Dies coordinates), Pumpkin Pie Gingham Cottage DSP, Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels and Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon. The banner is die cut with a banner die from Frosted Flurry Dies.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths M Fold

Isn’t this sweet? I’ve stamped the leaves of the wreath in Pale Papaya ink (from Cottage Wreaths stamp set), then the twig portion in Soft Suede ink, then die cut it with the appropriate die from Country Wreaths Dies. I tied a bow with the Open Weave Ribbon in Pale Papaya & adhered it with a glue dot. It’s covered with several Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels. I set this aside to stamp the sentiment… from Cottage Wreaths stamp set in Soft Suede ink on Basic White card stock, then die cut it with the larger banner die from Frosted Flurry Dies. I added two more Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels and set this aside. The last of the stamping for the card front is the sweet leaves on the banner – stamped in Soft Suede ink from the Country Wreaths stamp set and die cut with Country Leaves Dies. I attached this to the banner with liquid glue.

Now for the card base… Thick Basic White 5 1/2 x 11, scored at 4, 5 1/2 & 7. Burnish all score lines well. For the card front, adhere Pumpkin Pie card stock 3 7/8 x 5 3/8, then Gingham Cottage 3 3/4 x 5 1/4. Attach wreath with dimensionals & sentiment banner with dimensionals as well.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths M Fold.2

For the inside… on the left panel add another piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock then Cottage Gingham in a coordinating pattern. The folded area next to it gets a strip of Pumpkin Pie 1 1/4 x 5 3/8 that was embossed with Stripes embossing folder. The next panel is a strip of Basic White same size embossed with the Splatters embossing folder. Stripes & Splatters embossing folders come in the same set :O) and are mini embossing folders. I use them a LOT. The next panel is Basic White and was embossed just on the left section with the Splatters embossing folder. The only decoration is this leaf stamped in Pale Papaya ink from the Cottage Wreaths stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Wreaths M Fold.4

For the envelope I used more of the Gingham Cottage DSP for the flap, adhered & trimmed to fit ~ and that was it. Super cute card, love that it stands all by itself for display and can be used as a thank you or just a note or … you decide. The M Fold idea came from New Zealand SU! Demonstrator Jackie.

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! Happier Than Happy Fun Fold

Hello again. Guess what? I have another fun fold for you :O) In card class Thursday we made two fun folds ~ the one I posted yesterday with the Caroling Mice – a swing fold; and the other is the one I’m sharing with you today, made with Happier Than Happy stamp set. This could be masculine or a child’s card because of the colors & DSP. It could also be a woman’s card – it has flexibility.

Stampin' Up! Happier Than Happy Fun Fold

See what I mean that this could be a child’s card? And these colors too are bright & cheery and wonderful together. Calypso Coral is the card stock base and Sahara Sand is the contrasting color. The DSP is from the Happier Than Happy 12 x 12 DSP pack. So – how to make this card…

  • Calypso Coral pieces: 5 1/2 x 11, scored on long side @ 4, 5 3/4, 7 1/2, 9 1/4; 5 x 2 1/2 scored at 2 1/2; 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 (inside panel)
  • Sahara Sand pieces: 2 1/4 x 2 14, 1 1/2 x 5 1/4, 3 3/4 x 5 1/4 – emboss all of these with the Timber 3D embossing folder
  • Basic White: 2 x 2 (sentiment panel for inside) + additional pieces for stamped items
  • DSP – Happier Than Happy 12 x 12: 1 1/2 x 5 1/4, cut 2

Begin by adhering pieces to panels 1,3 & 5: that’s DSP, Sahara Sand & Sahara Sand.

Stampin' Up! Happier Than Happy Fun Fold.2

Adhere the square Sahara Sand piece to the left area on the scored 5 x 2 1/2 strip. Now adhere this strip to the front panel… with the card closed, place the left Sahara Sand portion on the front so it is equidistant from the left edge of the card & the right side of the card as well. Now, with the card folded accordian-style, adhere the right part of the 5 x 2 1/2 strip to panel 4. Adhere the additional DSP piece over top. Time to do some stamping/ decorating… stamp the front sentiment in Calypso Coral ink on Basic White using the Charming Sentiments stamp set; die cut with the coordinating Sentiment Silhouette Dies. Adhere to the front with mini dimensionals. Stamp the owl, stump and fox from Happier Than Happy stamp set on another Basic White scrap in Sahara Sand ink and die cut with the Happy Forest Friends Dies. Adhere in place as shown in photo. Stamp the inside sentiment (WOOHOO) from Charming Sentiments stamp set on the remaining Basic White 2 x 2 square in Sahara Sand ink and adhere to the inside. For the final touch, add the Rustic Metallic Adhesive-backed Dots. Turn card over & adhere a panel 3 3/4 x 5 1/4 in Basic White on the back for writing a sweet note. DONE!

Stampin' Up! happier Than Happy Fun Fold.3

Last but not least is the envelope… more of the same Happy Forest Friends DSP on the flap, adhered & trimmed to fit. For the front, stamp the cute owl from Happier Than Happy stamp set in Sahara Sand – and it’s all read for someones special birthday :O)

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! 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?

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.

Stampin’ Up! Elephant Parade Fun Fold, Baby

Hi Ya’ll. Ha, I’m not from the south… I just had to say it :O) Today’s card was supposed to be another fall card. It’s all ready & everything. But… I got an order for a baby card and decided THIS would be the post for today.

Stampin' Up! Elephant Parade Fun Fold, Baby.1

This is a fun fold… Half Swing Card or Pop-out Swing Card – you know, for Fun Fold Friday 😁 The sweet plaid is from Hue of Happiness DSP and is adhered to Flirty Flamingo card stock. The square is the 2nd largest of the Stylish Shapes Dies and I die cut the square AFTER adhering the DSP. But let me explain… I did not want adhesive all over the die, so, I adhered the DSP just on the right side to the card stock. After die cutting, I added more adhesive to hold the DSP in place, including on the die cut square panel. It was at this point I added the additional piece of Flirty Flamingo card stock, then the swing square, then decorated.

Directions:

  • Cut a piece of Flirty Flamingo 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 and score @ 4 1/4. (This is an A2 card panel)
  • Cut DSP to fit entire card front. Adhere just on right side to the A2 Flirty Flamingo card front
  • Die cut square, off-center. Because of the DSP/ card stock layers, I ran my square through twice (forward then back)
  • Remove square, adhere rest of DSP in place. Be sure to adhere DSP to the square as well. (Ask me how I know that!)
  • At this point you could opt to make a ‘frame’ for the square on the card front. I didn’t want that for this card so won’t give directions for that process ~ maybe in a future card.
  • Cut another piece of Flirty Flamingo 6 1/2 x 5 1/4 and score on long side @ 2, 4 & 6. Burnish well.
  • On the 1/2″ edge, make a slit to the score line down from top about 3/4″ Do same at bottom. Trim away the area in between so just ‘tabs’ remain. (I should have taken a picture & didn’t!)
  • Adhere the scored piece w/ 2″ area to the inside of the card back, 1/8″ from edge. I found it helpful to keep this scored panel closed to adhere it.
  • With the tabs in the ‘valley’ fold, put glue on tabs, close the card and they will adhere to card inside front.
  • With card closed, adhere square in place with glue only on the additional scored panel seen through the open square.
  • It should look like the photo below… sorry about the shadows!
Stampin' Up! Elephant Parade Fun Fold, baby. 2
  • Cut a Basic White piece 1 7/8 X 5 1/8, stamp & decorate. Adhere to inside. See photo.
Stampin' Up! Elephant Parade Fun Fold, Baby. 3
  • Decorate Square & card front
Stampin' Up! Elephant Parade F
un Fold, Baby.1

The elephants, flower, butterfly & balloon were stamped with Memento Black ink on A Basic White piece, colored with Stampin’ Blends and die cut with the Elephant Dies. The elephant on the square was adhered with dimentionals, while the lower elephant was attached with liquid adhesive. The flower was attached with dabs of liquid glue; the butterfly with a mini dimensional; the balloon with a dimensional only under the balloon; the grass with liquid glue.

Stampin’ Blends used were: Dark Flirty Flamingo & Light Granny Apple Green for the flower; Light Tahitian Tide & Light Daffodil Delight for the butterfly; Smoky slate, both Light & Dark for the elephant. A bit of Colo0r Lifter was used when necessary for highlight. The balloon was covered in Wink of Stella. The ribbon: Glittered Organdy Ribbon, was added with a glue dot under the knot.

Stampin' Up! Elephant Parade Fun Fold, Baby.4

For the envelope… more of the Hues of Happiness DSP on the flap and three baloons stamped in Memento Black ink. Stamp set is Elephant Parade. The balloons were colored with Stampin’ Blends: Granny Apple Green, Flirty Flamingo & Tahitian Tide. DONE!

I THINK THIS CARD MAY NEED SOME CLASSIC MATTE DOTS IN WHITE… what do you think? Or something… anyway – you see it as it is right now.

Stampin’ Up! Book-Binding Gatefold Card

Hi there! I have a very fun & easy card for you today. Yes, layers, that’s me. It’s a fun fold.

Stampin' Up! Book-binding Gatefold Card

I’ve used the Boughs of Holly DSP and the Leaves of Holly stamp set with it’s coordinating dies: Holly Berry Dies.Notice this center sentiment banner. Gorgeous, right? The berries on the lower right are holding the gatefold closed by simply slipping part of the sentiment banner under the berries, which are on dimensionals of course. And here it is out from under the berries.

Stampin' Up! Book -binding Gatefold Card

Notice how the ‘gate’ is open? Ok, how to make this beauty.

  • Cut the card base 4 1/4 x 11 & score @ 2 1/8, 3 3/8, & 8 7/8 (this is Real Red card stock) & burnish
  • Cut layering panels: 1 1/8 x 4 1/8, 2 x 4 1/8 (cut 2) * for inside 4 1/8 x 4 1/8 (this is Soft Succulent card stock)
  • Cut DSP panels: 1 x 4, 1 7/8 x 4 (cut 2) (this is Boughs of Holly DSP) Notice they are coordinating
  • Basic White square inside is 4 x 4
  • Thick Basic White : 6 x 4 for sentiment banner & berries

The first step is to create the book-binding… adhere together with a strong adhesive (I used Seal+) the scored area between 2 1/8 & 3 3/8. Adhere DSP panels to their like card stock cuts, then onto the card front. That’s really it except for decorating the card front :O)

To decorate: die cut 2 sentiment banners from Thick Basic White and from Evening Evergreen, the backing for the holly leaves. Adhere Evening Evergreen piece in place behind holly leaves, then adhere other banner piece to this for strength. Stamp sentiment in Real Red using the Leaves of holly stamp set.

Stamp berries ~ the detail is stamped first in Sweet Sorbet ink, then stamp over this with the more solid berry stamp in Real Red ink. Die cut with the appropriate die from Holly Berry Dies. Do this three times. Add one set of berries to the upper right corner of the sentiment banner, behind. Cut apart one set of berries to use two berries to add with dimensionals near the holly leaves. Close the Gate fold and adhere sentiment banner only on the left ‘gate’. Put dimensionals on the remaining set of berries and attach so the corner of the sentiment banner can slide under it. YAY, done! Now add several Rhinestone Basic Jewels for sparkle.

Here you can see five of the seven rhinestones added to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Book-binding Gatefold, inside

To create the inside is super easy too. Adhere the Soft Succulent panel first. Now stamp the Basic White piece: berries first. Detail stamp is Sweet Sorbet, more solid stamp is Real Red. Finally stamp the sentiment from the Leaves of Holly stamp set in Real Red. Adhere this panel in place and the card is finis. :O) Beautiful, right?

Stampin' Up! Book Binding Gatefold envelope

For the envelope I stamped the sentiment from Leaves of Holly in Real Red ink across the bottom front. The flap got more of the Boughs of Holly DSP. Lovely, fresh, cheery.

Stampin' Up! Book-binding Gatefold card.

This book-binding gatefold is so quick & easy and can be used for any occasion. Just change up the papers and there ya go! Can’t wait to see what you do with it.

Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest Fun Fold

Hello again! It’s time for another Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop Group… and the theme is “Fall Frenzy”. Check out my card…

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest

Whoa… the colors on my card are clashing with the the blog hop logo – yikes! But it just doesn’t matter!!! My card… these Leaf Labels are so fun to play with – here I added some color to the edges with sponge daubers and several inks: Poppy Parade, Evening Evergreen and Crushed Curry. I kept them pretty soft. And in the middle is stamped the simple word ‘hello’ from the Soft Seedlings stamp set. I love this font! I also added some of the Amber Gems that come packaged with the Leaf Labels. But I’m ahead of myself… perhaps we should begin with the card base 🥴 I like layers as you know, so: Crushed Curry card base layered with Crumb Cake then Rings of Love DSP (FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $50 product order!) The next is the fun fold part… Crushed Curry 3 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 14. Layer the front with Crumb Cake, then Gingham Cottage DSP in So Saffron. Take another piece of Crushed Curry 2 1/2 x 4 14 and lay it crosswise on the front and adhere with dimensionals. Run a slightly smaller panel of Crumb cake through the Timber 3D embossing folder and add it to this Crushed Curry piece. Now we decorate…

  • Ink the leaf stamp from Hello Harvest stamp set, in Crushed Curry, stamp off and with sponge daubers add a bit of color to the leaf tips: Evening Evergreen and Poppy Parade. Do this twice cleaning between each process, then die cut using the coordinating Rustic Pumpkin Dies. Before putting this stamp away, stamp a 4 x 5 14 Basic White panel and the envelope front following the same procedure.
  • Place the two die cut leaves, one under the Leaf Label and one on top. Add a twirly stem die cut using the Rustic Pumpkin Dies and Garden Green card stock scrap.
  • Adhere all these to the embossed Crushed Curry piece.
  • Add the bow made from separated strings of Baker’s Twine in White and Crumb Cake… with a dab of liquid glue.

Add this folded panel to the card base (remember the three layers that started the card), centering it. Now decorate the inside of the folded portion: Crumb Cake layer, then decorated Basic White layer.

  • The Basic White layer… stamp the sentiment in Soft Suede ink using this wonderful sentiment from Hello Harvest stamp set.
  • Stamp two flowers in Memento Black ink on either side of the sentiment. Color the flowers with Stampin’ Blends Daffodil Delight and Soft Suede
Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest Fun Fold, inside

Now turn the completed card over and add the Basic White panel stamped with the leaf from Hello Harvest.

Envelope: Remember the front has already been stamped with the leaf from Harvest Hello. Now add more of the same Gingham Cottage to the flap and your card is complete :O)

I should have taken a photo of the card standing, it would have shown the dimension and given a different view. Oh well…another time… Now it’s time to head over to the next team member participating this month. Feel free to use the ‘buttons’ or click on a name to see that blog. Whatever you choose, don’t miss any of the hoppers :O) Enjoy.
