Morning, y’all – happy Friday! Hope you’ve got something cool planned for the weekend. I feel like we do, but…I can’t think what it is. So….guess we’ll see as the days go by, huh? I KNOW we’ll be doing some planting. But…beyond that… 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️
If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me. If not, but you’d like to check it out, here’s the replay on YouTube! 🙂
I pulled out a new stamp set – so new, in fact, that only Demonstrators can get it right now! That’ll all change on 4 May with the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog! This is the Flowers of Friendship stamp set and the bundled Flowers & Leaves Punch. And…I’ve showcased three great new 2021-2023 In Colors! All in a super-easy fun fold. Take a look-see:
This one was inspired by the CASE The Designer challenge over on the Global Design Project Challenge this week.
I started with a piece of Fresh Freesia cardstock. I used the next-to-largest Stitched Rectangle die to cut a panel that I adhered to a Thick Basic White card base, at a jaunty angle, with Liquid Glue.
I used the same Stitched Rectangle Die to cut a Basic White panel. Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the Flowers of Friendship sentiment in Fresh Freesia. Then I popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On a strip of Basic White, I stamped the large and small flowers and leaves from Flowers of Friendship in Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent. Then I punched the pieces with the bundled Flowers & Leaves Punch.
I adhered the leaves with Liquid Glue then popped the flowers over top with more Dimensionals. Then I added a Pale Papaya gem from the new 2021-2023 In Color Jewels to the middle of the flowers and the card front was done!
For the back, I again used my Stamparatus, first to add a second sentiment from Flowers of Friendship in Fresh Freesia to a Basic White panel. Then, using the Marker-to-Rubber technique – I stamped the large floral image in Fresh Freesia, Soft Succulent and Early Evergreen.
I added another 2021-2023 In Color Jewel, used Liquid Glue adhere the panel to a Fresh Freesia mat and then onto the back of the card base.
To make the “tent mechanism” – I used a 3 1/4″ x 3 7/8″ piece of Basic White (tip – if you’re using a different color card base – match that color, okay?). Using my Simply Scored Board, I scored along the short side at 3/8″, 1 5/8″ and 2 7/8″. Then folded at the score lines – Valley, Mountain, Valley.
I used Tear & Tape adhesive on the short “tabs” to adhere the mechanism to the inside of the card base. Check the video if these words are more confusing than helpful! 😉
And that was it for the card.
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Flowers of Friendship floral on the front (Stamparatus, again!)…
…and more of the flowers and leaves on the envelope flap.
I also made the same card with Pale Papaya and one with Pink Polish as the focal colors!
Et Voila! Pretty easy way to notch up a “basic” tent fold card, am I right? 🙂
I am LOVING the new 2021-2023 In Colors, aren’t you? And the new Flowers of Friendship set with its bundled Flowers & Leaves Punch really lets them shine, don’t you think??
I hope you like! And – if you’re wanting to pick up all the new In Colors cardstock, Designer Series Paper, Inks, and Refills…check out my Special Bundle #1: 2021-2023 In Color Bundle.

Sometimes, the only thing that can make a girl (or her husband – he just won’t admit it!) feel better is some good old-fashioned retail therapy!
So – as I mentioned in my video, we went to Costco on Wednesday – and ended up buying more Confederate Jasmine (so we’ve got three now!) and some lavender. And three more of the amazing trellises…trellisae?…that we’d bought a couple weeks back.
And Wayne has been building horse-shoe planters for us (it’s a theme here!) – sized to fit 20 gallon Grow Bags.
He was busy helping the jasmine find it’s finger and toe holds so it can climb its trellis.
Just throwing this out there – if Heaven doesn’t smell like Jasmine then….if probably should! Not trying to tell God His job or anything, but… 😉
