Stampin’ Up! Sea Life Seascape Box Card Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Hey, y’all – how’s the week been?  It’s managed to rain nearly every day this week – some pretty heavy, too.  We had the shoer here on Wednesday and we were grateful for a covered aisle, concrete floor and a big ole fan to help us stay cool.  Cuz…rain + GA Summer Heat = SAUNA!! 👀👀👀

So – if you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I sure appreciate you spending part of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to watch the replay to see how to make this fun-fold box card, here ’tis!

I’ve been seeing this Box Card around – several of my talented Critters-N-Creatin’ Team members have been posting them on our team FB page – and I figured…better late than never, right?!  So…I looked around and found a good tutorial from Dawn Griffin and then…made it my own with the Seascape stamp set and bundled Sea Life dies!  I used Beauty of the Earth DSP for my “ocean”.  Take a look-see:

And – I think this is a perfect depiction of summer (at least it’s mine!) so…I played along with the theme challenge over at The Paper Players!

The card base itself is a piece of Mango Melody cardstock, cut at 8 1/2″ x 10″.  Then it’s scored at 2″, 3 1/2″, 6 1/2″ and 8″ along the long side.  Then I turned it 90degrees and scored at 1 1/2″ and 7″ along the short side.

Then I cut along the score lines from the short edge to remove the outer rectangles.

Next, I made a mark at the 1 1/2″ point on the long edge (between the 3 1/2″ and 6 1/2″ score lines) and used my Paper Trimmer to score diagonal lines on bothe edges.

At this point, my cardstock looked like this.  Only…you know, in Mango Melody. 😉

Then I added Tear & Tape Adhesive to the outside of the small tabs, then trimmed the tabs down – making them shorter and angled.

At this point, I made the inside of the box.

I used a piece of Misty Moonlight paper from the Beauty of the Earth DSP and stamped a Seascape sentiment in Night of Navy in the middle.  Then I added the coral image in Granny Apple Green, some fish in Calypso Coral and some awesome bubbles in Misty Moonlight.  I love those bubbles!

I matted the panel on Granny Apple Green and adhered it to the inside of the yet-to-be-folded card base with Liquid Glue.

I folded and burnished all the scored lines and adhered the card together with the Tear & Tape – as shown in the video – gently pushing the top in, using the diagonal score lines to create the fold!

For the front, I cut another piece of the Beauty of the Earth DSP and stamped the coral and fishes and bubbles – then I cut it in half and adhered both pieces to Granny Apple Green mats and then to the front panels of the card.

 

I used the dies in the Sea Life die set to cut a seahorse and a coral from a piece of Rainbow Glimmer Paper and a second coral from a piece of Mango Melody Ombre Specialty Paper.

I created a belly-band with a narrow strip of Granny Apple Green that I wrapped sort of loosely around and secured at the front with Liquid Glue.

Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the die cut seahorse and coral to the bellyband – being careful to NOT get any glue on the card front!

I stamped a second Seascape sentiment in Night of Navy on another piece of the same Beauty of the Earth DSP and added some Misty Moonlight bubbles.  Then I cut it with a die from the Hippo & Friends Die set.

I adhered the sentiment to the belly-band decorations with Liquid Glue.

I pulled out the Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins and added some to the sentiment and the card front – and to the inner liner, too – and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the coral, fishes and bubbles from Seascape on the front…

…and more of the Beauty of the Earth DSP – complete with bubbles! – on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Isn’t this such a fun…fold?  I love that it makes a little box – big enough for a gift card or some cold, hard cash! 😉  Box Cards have sort of been making the rounds on Facebook and Pinterest, so I hope you’re going to give it a go.  And if you do – I think this combination of Beauty of the Earth DSP and the Seascape bundle is a perfect decoration to make a cool underwater ocean scene!

I hope you like!

HOST CODE FOR 1 JUN – 15 JUN: WTMDBUWY

Use this host code when you order $50 or greater and receive a free gift (AND the Monthly Card Tutorial) from me!  If your order is over $150, please do not use this code, but you’ll still get the free gift.  The free gift is your choice of any item valued up to $10.00 in any active Catalog!  That includes some of the Host Exclusive stamp sets!  See my Customer Rewards page for full details.

Note: Make sure that you can see my name on the final checkout page listed as your Demonstrator when you order so that you know that you’re ordering with me and you’ll get my rewards!

You’ll also be getting a link to my ZOOM The Craftroom (an exclusive TWICE-A-WEEK online event for my customers) and the monthly Online Tutorial.  The June Tutorial features the Quiet Meadow Bundle!  


Openings Available in Host Clubs Starting on 1 July! 

How does it work?

A club consists of three folks doing two consecutive three-month terms.   Each person commits to buying $50 before shipping and tax each month.

You sign up for two consecutive 3-month terms and commit to:

  • A $50.00 minimum order each month
  • Placing your order by the 20th of each month
  • Using the Host code for each month that I send to you in an email at the beginning of each month

Here’s how it shakes out…this is just an example!  As you can see, each member gets to host TWICE during the six months!!

At the end of the club, I let each member select a stamp set up to $25 that I send to them for free.

What are the other bennies of a Host Club?

  • At least a $150.00 Workshop order during EACH of your host months!
  • Which means you’ll have at least $15.00 of Stampin’ Rewards dollars to spend on the exclusive Host Stamp Sets, or any other current Stampin’ Up! product during your host months.  Stampin’ Rewards are Stampin’ Up!-speak for “free money”!
  • You’ll earn DOUBLE PEPPERMINTS on your Host Club Orders.  Each $50 order earns 4 reward points, a $75 order earns you 6 reward points, etc. You’ll earn at least 24 reward points during your membership, meaning you’ll automatically earn at least ONE $40 Peppermint rewards gift!  (Remember – when you gather up 16 Peppermints, you get to select a free reward gift valued up to $40!).  You can get more info about my Punkin’ Heads Customer Rewards Program right here.
  • You’ll receive a FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects and access to all previous tutorials for the duration of the club. Right now, there are over FIFTY tutorials available only to Online Host Club members.  That’s around TWO HUNDRED SEVENTY not-seen-on-our-blogs projects for you to use as inspiration (and they ALL have all the card cuts and instructions!)
  • Access to my Weekly Zoom The Craftroom online Zoom Party – where you can come craft and chat with me and other customers!
  • FREE catalogs during your membership term
  • FREE shipping in your TWO Host Months
  • A FREE STAMP SET of your choice valued up to $25 at the end of each “term”, any current set (excluding host sets)!
  • At the end of the full 6 months, you’ll get first dibs at signing up for the next 6 month term!

When you join the club – you’ll commit to the full six months – in two consecutive three-month increments.   This is a great time to join a club – with the new Annual Catalog, the pending August release of the 2021 Jul-Dec Mini Catalog and the second SALE-A-BRATION fixin’ to start in August, too!

Don’t delay – there are limited spaces available!

If you want to join us or if you have ANY questions about how it would work…please drop me a note at stamps-n-lingers@comcast.net!

Finn Fan Fix

Well.  The Battle of the Mats was borne – and lost – on Wednesday.

He went pretty bravely – I mean, a ride’s a ride, right??

…but it went down the tubes pretty fast.

The mats were pretty much impervious to all our potions and combing and thinning.  We spa-day’d him for almost an hour and a half.

We were ALL over it at that point and so I let him get down and we dried him off.

In the end, he was squeaky, shiny clean.  The top of him looks all good and silky!

…and he’s as beautiful and handsome as ever…

…but when you pet him it’s abundantly clear that….the mats won.  Big time.

And – he’s a more convinced than ever that humans are goofy.  I mean….MOM gets all excited when it’s spa day – like she loves it or something!

He’s not seeing the appeal. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Love You Always in My Heart Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good morning!  It’s Sunday so..that heralds the half-way point of your weekend.  And – not for nuthin’ – it’s Super Bowl Sunday!  If you’re one of the lucky spectators – I heard there are going to be 25,000 human people.  And…30,000 cardboard “people”.  For which human people were given the chance to pay – yes PAY!! – $100 for the “honor” of having your face – or your kid’s face – or…your dog’s face – “attend” the Super Bowl.

Seriously?!? 😳😳😳  That just does not pass my sniff-test.

Caveat – if YOU were one who paid $100 to “be” there then I think that’s awesome – no offense meant – and I hope “you” enjoy the experience. 😉

So – I’ve got a fun-fold for you today (for FREE! 😉 ) – that’s just in time for Valentine’s or Galentine’s Day and I showed you how to make it last night on my Facebook live video.  If you were able to spend some of your weekend with me, I appreciate it!  If not, here’s the replay on YouTube!

I love a good fun fold and I especially love it if it’s EASY – which this one totally is!  I used the pretty Love You Always Specialty DSP and the gorgeous Love You Always stamp set with the bundled Floral Heart Dies to make it gorgeous.  Take a look-see:


The colors on this one are from this week’s Global Design Project challenge.

Just Us Girls had a timely Word Week challenge, too!

I think it also fits well with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

I started by cutting two pieces of Rococo Rose cardstock to create the two “cards” that make-up the whole fun fold card. Card 1 is the “base” and then card 2 is the smaller cardbase that is adhered to the large back panel of card 1.

I matted a large piece of Love You Always Specialty DSP – in Rococo Rose – on Sahara Sand and adhered it to the back panel of card 1.  I cut and matted a smaller piece for the left small panel of the first card.

For the smaller card – I matted another piece of the Love You Always Specialty DSP on Sahara Sand and adhered it to the front of the card.

From a piece of Sahara Sand Love You Always Foil, I cut the large heart die from the Floral Heart Dies.  I adhered it to the front of the small card with Liquid Glue.

Then I used the small flower die in the Floral Heart Dies (it cuts three detailed flowers at a time!) to cut some flowers in Blushing Bride and Rococo Rose.  These are adhered to the foil heart image with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from Always in My Heart in Rococo Rose on a piece of Basic White and cut it with the same large die in the Always Die set.  Then I popped the heart onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied two lengths of white twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack into a bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  Then I added a few Opal Rounds and that was it for the card front.

I stamped a second sentiment from Always in My Heart in Rococo Rose onto a Basic White panel.  Then I stamped two flowers from the set in Rococo Rose and filled them using the fill image – in stamped off once Blushing Bride.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Sahara Sand mat and into the smaller card base.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere that card into the larger card #1 – making sure it was centered on the large back panel.  And the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Always in My Heart flowers on the front…

…and more of the Love You Always Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This super-easy fun fold is great for showcasing our gorgeous papers like the Love You Always Specialty DSP – and the perfectly sized front of the smaller card is just right for the big, bold Floral Heart Die cut!  The bundled Always in My Heart stamp set covers the gamut from love to friendship – Valentine’s to Anniversary! 🙂

I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

Well, Finn heard that the first Saturday in February is National Ice Cream For Breakfast Day.

Yes.  Really.

So…he wanted to give y’all a recipe he found on the internet for ice cream for your fur-kids.

Not your cats.  He’s pretty sure cats should not get ice cream made for dogs.

It’s probably…bad for them or something. 😉

Here you go!

Ingredients

  • 3-4 ripe bananas, peeled
  • 32 ounces plain yogurt, low-fat
  • 1 cup peanut butter – (make SURE it doesn’t have Xylitol in it! 🤢 According to the great Google: The most popular brands of peanut butter, such as Jif, Skippy, Smuckers and Peter Pan are all xylitol-free.  Which is good, cuz that’s totally what we have!)

Instructions

  1. Add bananas, peanut butter, and yogurt to a blender.
  2. Blend until thoroughly mixed.
  3. Pour into ice cube tray and freeze.

Hope your kids love their treat!

Good morning and happy Friday!  Hoping that your week went well – and that you’re ready for a weekend.  You’ll be fascinated to hear that – in celebration of National Pizza WEEK (yes, that’s a thing – but it ends Saturday so….get to eating!) – we ate sourdough crust pizza last night! And it were yummy!

I’ve got a fun fun-fold for you today and, if you were able to join me for my YouTube live yesterday, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me!  If not, here’s the replay!

I pulled out the Dragonfly Garden Bundle – with the fun Dragonflies Punch – and some Dandy Garden DSP and pulled it all together to create a z-fold card (of sorts).  Take a look-see:

The color palette for this one is from this week’s Paper Players Challenge!

I started with a 5 1/4″ x 11″ piece of cardstock – Blackberry Bliss for the sample card (I used Calypso Coral in the video) – and scored and folded it at 1 3/4″, 5 1/2″ and 9 3/4″ along the long side.

I matted Dandy Garden DSP on Bumble Bee cardstock – using Misty Moonlight paper for two panels and Bumble Bee paper for the center panel.

I adhered all the matted panels to the card base with Liquid Glue.

For the belly band, I gently folded a 1″ x 11″ piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock (or Calypso Coral) around the folded-up card and adhered the ends together with Liquid Glue on the front of the card.

The sentiment started with a piece of Basic White cardstock that I cut with the third smallest Stitched Rectangle Die.  I ran it again thru the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, this time with one of the new Stitched With Whimsy dies in the middle.

I stamped the middle of the sentiment label with the Dragonfly Garden sentiment in Misty Moonlight (Mossy Meadow in the video) and then stamped the wunnermus wildflower image three times over the top in Bumble Bee.  Then I adhered it to the middle of the belly band with Liquid Glue.

I punched a dragonfly from the Dandy Garden DSP (Blackberry Bliss or Calypso Coral) using the Dragonflies Punch.  I gently curled the wings and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  Then I used the punch to punch Blackberry Bliss (or Calypso Coral) small dragonflies and adhered them as well.  Those got a swipe with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

For the inside, I stamped the Dragonfly Garden wildflowers image twice in Bumble Bee on the bottom of a Basic White panel.  Then I added the little “swarm” image in Blackberry Bliss (Calypso Coral in the video).

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into the card base and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Dragonfly Garden wildflowers and “swarm” on the front…

…and more Dandy Garden DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Love love love the Dandy Garden Suite, don’t you?  From the Dragonfly Garden stamp set with it’s perfectly fun Dragonflies Punch

…to the gorgeous Dandy Garden DSP

….it’s a winner!  I hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix 

In the evenings, when the horses come in, we tell Finn to “go to your spot”.

His spot is a dog bed.  Wherever the dog bed is – so…it moves around some.

But – it’s still his spot and he goes there to watch over the pony parade as they come in!

He’ll usually lay down – with blinky blinking around his neck! – for at least the start of the event.

But…as they get closer – sometimes he has to sit up – just to be sure they see him.

Just double checking that I’m there and won’t let one of the mean girls get him! 😉

To be clear – they aren’t ACTUALLY mean and I won’t let them get him!

Stampin’ Up! Fine Art Floral Gallery Sneak Peek Fun-Fold with Video Tutorial

Happy 2021!!  I suspect most of us are hoping and praying that this is a better year – on so many levels! – than 2020 was.  I know – and you know – that it’s not going to change for the better overnight.  But…perhaps the light we’re seeing at the end of the tunnel is NOT a train.  Hope springs eternal. 🙂

My first card for the year comes with a video tutorial and, if you were able to join me yesterday on my You Tube channel, I appreciate you spending part of your New Year’s Eve with me!  If not, here’s the replay!  Hint: don’t be confused by the picture – I DID make a different card on the video.  But…it means you get a two-fer today! 🙂
