Stampin’ Up! Perennial Essence Bird Ballad Fun Fold

Happy Tuesday!  The week is clicking by!  Soon it’ll be Hawwmp Day and we’ll be on the downhill slide to the weekend!  Whoo-hooo!

My card today is…another fun fold.  In fact, it’s the same fold as yesterday – sorry! – cuz I needed another gift card for a co-worker leaving the program.  And – I wanted to do something flower-dy and pretty for her.  So…I used the same fold on the inside, but…pulled in the Floral Essence stamp set, plus some gorgeous painterly Perennial Essence DSP and a Bird Ballad Laser Cut Note card – all available on 4 June!  Take a look-see:

Look at that gorgeous die cut card front – that’s ALL from the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards and Tin set – which is part of the new Bird Ballad product suite.

For the card front layout, I used the sketch challenge from CAS(E) This Sketch this week.

I started by creating a diagonal mat from So Saffron and a Very Vanilla “card front”.  On that Very Vanilla piece, I stamped a sentiment from Floral Essence in Blackberry Bliss ink.  Then I stamped a couple of flowers from the same set in So Saffron, adding Crushed Curry centers (there are a couple of different “center” images to choose from in the set).  I also stamped some pretty leaves in Mossy Meadow – and colored them with my Light and Dark Old Olive and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the Vanilla panel to the So Saffron mat.

To create my card base, I used the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Card and, using Liquid Glue, adhered a Petal Pink piece of Perennial Essence DSP to the back of the laser-cut front of the card base.  Then I adhered my matted diagonal to the front.

Using the flower stamp from Perennial Essence, I stamped it three times in Petal Pink on Petal Pink card stock and three times on the Petal Pink Vellum from the Perennial Essence 12″ x 12″ Vellum Card Stock pack.

When everything was dry (it takes a minute on the Vellum!), I punched all the flowers with the new Perennial Flower Punch (which will be available on 4 Jun, bundled with the Perennial Essence stamp set).  I lightly curled the petals and glued a card stock flower to a vellum flower to create three full flowers.

On a separate piece of Very Vanilla, I stamped some more leaves in Mossy Meadow and colored them with the Blends.  Then I fussy cut them.  

Using Liquid Glue, I added the leaves and flowers in an ever-so-artistic manner, added a few fuzzy Perennial Essence Flower Centers (4 Jun!) and the card front was done!

On the inside, I re-created the fun pop-up gift card holder just like I did yesterday, using Perennial Essence DSP and sentiments/images from the Perennial Essence stamp set.

You can see the basics in my video here.

For this one, though, I created the actual gift card envelope from some Perennial Essence DSP – and I cut my little “window” with the Starburst Punch.

 

I added the sentiments in Blackberry Bliss and the flowers and leaves in So Saffron,  Crushed Curry and Mossy Meadow.

Once again, I left the lower Very Vanilla panel blank so all my co-workers and I could sign it!

The envelope, which is part of the Bird Banner Laser-Cut Cards and Tin set, got more of the Perennial Essence flowers on the front…

…and I left the flap alone – they already come with that beautiful scalloped edge!

Et Voila!  I just love this fold – I promise, though, last one!  But isn’t it gorgeous with the Perennial Essence suite?  And those Bird Balllad Laser-Cut Cards – instant BAM!!  I hope you like – and that you’ll make some of these fun gift card holders.  And…are adding this Suite to your wish list!

Stampin’ Up! Country Home Shutter Gate Fun Fold Card

The card that I made for the tutorial – Dina Kowal asked me to do a Shutter Gate Card for it – was made with the new Country Home stamp set and Country Lane DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Treats, Toil and Trouble for the Amy’ Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop!

Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month we’re doing Halloween Fun!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

Before I get going – let’s just acknowledge the historical import of this day in the history of our Country.  I know I will always remember that day – where I was, what we were doing, what I felt as I raced to work – hoping my boss/friend hadn’t already gotten on an airplane and that the folks I knew were in D.C weren’t at the Pentagon.  I know y’all remember it as well.  As we must.  We must never – ever – forget.

So – okay.  On with the card.

I pulled out the Cauldron Bubble stamp set and bundled Cauldron Framelits – paired them with some Toil & Trouble DSP and some Spooky Bats Punch shapes.  Take a look-see at the Double Easel Fun Fold that I created with them!

What I love about Double-Easels is that – with just an extra piece or two of card stock and a few extra score-and-folds, you’ve got a WOW card!

I started with the Double Easel in Basic Black.  I cut a piece at 4″ x 10 1/4″ and scored and folded it at 5 1/4″ x 7 3/4″.  Then I matted three pieces of new Toil & Trouble DSP on Granny Apple Green and adhered them to the easel.

I cut a piece of Copper Glimmer Paper from the Joyous Noel 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper Pack with my Circle Layering Framelits and adhered it to the front “mountain” fold with Liquid Glue on just the bottom portion.

I stamped the sweet little witch from Cauldron Bubble in Tuxedo Black on a piece of Whisper White and colored her with my Light and Dark Smoky Slate, Highland Heather, Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Pumpkin Pie and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends.  Then I cut her out with the matching die in the Cauldron Framelits.  I also cut a cauldron and a kitty from one of the pieces of Toil & Trouble DSP (how cool is that?!).

I scooped up a little Shimmery White Embossing Paste and colored it with a drop of Granny Apple Green Ink Refill – then I sort of piled it onto the “stuff” pouring out the top of the cauldron – I used a toothpick to build it up!

From some Black Foil, I cut a spider web from a Cauldron Thinlit and a few Spooky Bats punched shapes.

I used Liquid Glue to build the little “scene”.  Yep – no dimensionals….yet! 😉

I removed the “hangar” from a Spider Trinket and adhered him with a Glue Dot to the Black Foil spider web.  The sentiment, from Cauldron Bubble is stamped in Highland Heather on Whisper White and snipped out.  I used a Glue Dot to adhere two of the words to the bubbly stuff.

Across the large panel, I adhered a length of new Black 5/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon, using a couple of Glue Dots to adhere it to the back of the panel.  Then I added a new Snowflakes & Stars Wire Element with a Glue Dot and another Spooky Bat with some Liquid Glue.  A bow, adhered with a Glue Dot, finished it off.

On the inside, I stamped the cauldron from Cauldron Bubble in Tuxedo Black on a Whisper White panel, then I colored it with my Light and Dark Smoky Slate, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody and Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends.  I added the rest of the fussy cut sentiment words with Liquid Glue and stamped the second Cauldron Bubble sentiment underneath in Tuxedo Black.

I matted the panel on Granny Apple Green and Basic Black with Liquid Glue and then adhered the panel into my Highland Heather card base, popped the double-easel card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Cauldron on the front….

…and some more star-strewn Toil & Trouble DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Now – it appears there are a lot of steps here – and there sort of are.  But – those are “cake decorating” steps.  The “cake” itself (the actual double-easel) is easy peasy.  I just sort of got carried away with all the fun goodies in the Cauldron Bubble bundle and the spooky-cool Toil & Trouble DSP!  You can make your double-easel as simple or complex as you like.  Just….MAKE a double-easel!  Hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Julie’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Karen’s been up to!

Stampin’ Up! Cauldron Bubble Fun Fold Sneak Peek

Happy Sunday!  Hope you’re having a great weekend!

We did some share chopping yesterday – got most of the paper shares in the mail.  Today is ribbon winding and chopping – and, when we get done, maybe a trip to Costco?  Time will tell!

Tonight we’ll be making a card together – at least, I HOPE all y’all will be able to join me – on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  It’s a Fun Fun-fold (which I suppose would be an F3Card?).  And it may or may not be THIS exact card – the fun fold will be the same, but…we may do Thanksgiving.  Or…Christmas!  Take a Sneaky Peek!

It’ll all depend on my mood as we approach 8pm eastern!

Only time will tell.

I do hope you can join me!  8pm.  Eastern.  Here!

I’m not really going to say much about today’s picture.

Other than to, perhaps, wax eloquent on the extraordinary sweetness of this face.

Yes – he’s got his feet up on my lap.  He’s got his collar in his mouth – because…why NOT hold your collar?  And he’s giving me “the eyes.”

He can have pretty much whatever he wants from me.  And he totally knows it.

I’m a goner.

Stampin’ Up! Frosted Floral Fun-Fold Shutter Card!

Good Monday, y’all!  And – since it’s a Holiday, it truly is an actual GOOD Monday! 🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I sure appreciate you spending part of your long-weekend with me (and for being patient in the middle of my network difficulties!).  If not, but you’d like to see the replay, here it is on YouTube.  Be aware that it starts a little disjointedly – my network dropped us near the beginning of the video – but you’ll get to see the whole card being made!

The card we made last night – a Shutter Fun Fold – uses paper from the 2018 Holiday Catalog called Frosted Floral Specialty DSP.  And it is gorgeous!  I pulled some goodies from the Annual Catalog, too – the Hello Kitty stamp set and the fun Cat Punch.  Take a look-see:

The front was inspired by this week’s TGIF challenge!  I went straight down the right side column!

A Shutter Card looks just like a regular Gate Card from the outside – complete with a decorated belly band.

In this case, I used a couple of Stitched Shapes Framelits circles – a Whisper White and Frosted Floral DSP circle – atop a Mint Macaron scalloped circle.  The sentiment is from Pretty Kitty, stamped in Blackberry Bliss on Sea Foam card stock and cut with the Classic Label Punch.  It’s all adhered to a 1″ wide Soft Sea Foam belly band.

The fun of a Shutter Card really gets going when you open it up!

This fold looks way more complicated than it is – and the video will show you just how easy it is to cut and assemble – so I hope you’ll give it a watch!  Th sentiment, from Pretty Kitty, is stamped in Blackberry Bliss.  Over that, I added one of the sweet kitty images from the set – in stamped-off-once Soft Sea Foam.

I added the same cute image from Pretty Kitty to the front of the Whisper White Envelope…

…and, as usual, gave the flap a little more of the Frosted Floral DSP!

Et Voila!  This is an easy fold to make, y’all – and you can decorate it however you wish! So watch the tutorial and try one for yourself! Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix

Labor Day.

The very name invokes….bar-b-que!  Corn on the cob!  Baked Beans!  Watermelon!

Of those – only ONE is Finn-Friendly.

To be fair – he’d EAT all of them.

And…we’d ALL regret that later.

But.  There’s ONE…

A little watermelon on a hot summer day.  Yum!!
