Good morning. It’s Tuesday, 7 Dec 2021. Today we should all take just a moment to remember the events of eighty years ago. It was a moment that plunged us into the Second World War – and changed us forever as a Nation. Take a moment – honor those that lost their lives – that day – and in the bloody years that followed.
My card today is a fun-fold (guess you guessed that from the title??) that is super easy. Here it is: make a little tent card. Stick it to a larger piece of cardstock. Done. 😉
Of course – the beauty is in the details, right? The details of this one include the Blessings of Home bundle, the Honeybee Home stamp set and the gorgeous Heart & Home DSP – ALL coming on 4 Jan 2022 in the new Jan – Jun 2022 Mini Catalog! Take a look-see:
I played along with the Watercooler Wednesday challenge with this one!
I started with a piece of gray woodgrain paper from the Heart & Home DSP and matted it on Misty Moonlight – then I adhered it all to a piece of Cinnamon Cider cardstock and the card base was “made”! 🙂
I cut a bee-strewn piece of Heart & Home DSP and adhered it to a smaller Cinnamon Cider mat – this is the card front for the small tent-card on the front. I adhered the whole thing to the front of the smaller Misty Moonlight tent-card base – and then adhered the little card in the center of the card front.
I adhered a Square Vellum Doily to the smaller card front – tipping it up to be a diamond – using Liquid Glue.
Using the leaves dies in the Flowers of Home Die Set, I cut five leaves – one of each. And I also cut four from the gold paper in the Gold & Rose Gold 6″ x 6″ Metallic Specialty Paper. Using Liquid Glue – I adhered them to the small card front.
I stamped the smaller floral from the Blessings of Home stamp set in Basic Gray on a piece of Basic White and cut it with the matching die from the bundled Flowers of Home set.
I colored the flowers with my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend and the Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Combo. The stems and leaves I barely touched with the Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend (just lightly coloring the shading lines provided by Stampin’ Up!). I popped the die cut flower over the top of the leaves.
I stamped the Blessings of Home sentiment in Cinnamon Cider on a narrow strip of Basic White – snipped banners in each end with scissors – and adhered it with Liquid Glue and a Stampin’ Dimensional.
Using a Glue Dot – I adhered a Bumblebee Trinket to the card front, and the card front was done.
I stamped a small flower from the Honeybee Home set in Basic Gray in the corner of a small Basic White panel. I colored it with the Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend.
I inked just the words “What a Beautiful Day”, from Blessings of Home, in Basic Gray and stamped the center of the panel. Tip: I was able to just carefully ink the words – if it’s easier, put a sticky note over the remainder of the stamp (just be SURE to pull it off BEFORE you stamp the panel!). 😉
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and into the small Misty Moonlight card base.
For the back of the card, I stamped two Honeybee Home bees in Basic Gray on a Basic White panel. I colored both of them with the Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and then onto the back of the Cinnamon Cider card base and the card was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got a Honeybee Home bee on the front…
…and more of the Heart & Home DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! SUPER simple fun fold, right?? But – it just adds a pop of fun, I think! And the Blessings of Home bundle, Honeybee Home and the Heart & Home DSP just go together like….white bread, a fresh sliced ‘mater and a sprinkle of salt! Am I right?? Can’t WAIT for you to pick it up in January!!
I hope you like!

Usually when I get off the treadmill and walk back in the kitchen in the mornings, I see…
But the other morning, I saw…
He wasn’t blinking…he didn’t look around at me…he didn’t even twitch.
I double checked but…there was nothing in the human-visible-spectrum anywhere in sight that would have incited this focus and concentration.
Or…was there? Puny human eyes are woefully inadequate – it’s a known thing.
