Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Petals Fun Fold Card & Video

Last week I shared a really beautiful fun fold card using brand new product from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

I don’t do a lot of fun folds, so believe me, if I can do it – so can you!!!

The card uses the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper which is gorgeous!!! It has beautiful floral images and watercolor patterns.

It is included in my Annual Catalog Product Share, so be sure to check out the details on how you can get it, and a sampling of all the other new DSP!!!

The card also uses the new Inspiring Thoughts Stamp Set, which covers just about every sentiment you could need. It has great sentiments for both the inside and outside of your card. It’ll be available May 4th!

I’ll be back with another card tonight using brand new product. I’ll be using the new Inspiring Thoughts Bundle, the same stamp set that I used for today’s card. Join me at 7:30 EDT over on my Facebook page – you won’t want to miss it!

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Ice Cream Card & Video

This week we’re talking all about the new In Colors!

The Color Collection colors are great – but the five new In Colors bring a breath of fresh air! They fill in where we may have a color gap and they coordinate beautifully together and with other Stampin’ Up! colors we already have.

Yesterday I shared a fun card using Soft Succulent. Today I’m sharing a card with Polished Pink, Fresh Freesia, and Pale Papaya and I really like how bright and fresh they are together!

My card starts off with Basic White cardstock. I then stamped the ice cream scoops from the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set in Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya, and Polished Pink, stamping the sprinkles in the same color over it. I stamped the cone in Crumb Cake ink. I cut them out using the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch.

I adhered them over one another and then laid them over the card front and traced the edge. I then fussy cut this part out.

Next, I cut out strips of Fresh Freesia, Polished Pink, and Pale Papaya cardstock and stamped the sprinkles on them in the coordinating colors. I snipped the end off and adhered them down.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set in Polished Pink ink and cut a bubble around it.

*Be sure to check out the video below to see I cut out the bubble around the sentiment in a super easy way!

Lastly, I added a couple of Pale Papaya Jewels to the card.

If you’re new to card making, check out the card above. It was the inspiration for my fun fold and very easy to replicate!! Give it a try!

Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited Fun Fold with Video

Happy Wednesday!!!

I don’t know about you but it’s been a doozy of a week and I am SO looking forward to my Facebook live tonight!!!

Today’s card is the one I shared last week.

I created a masculine birthday card that slides out of its sleeve using the Handsomely Suited Bundle. The whole Well Suited Suite is awesome – stamps, dies, designer paper, thread – it all coordinates together making cards come together easy and still look amazing!

I used Basic Gray cardstock for the suit, Thick Basic White for the shirt, and a Well Suited Designer Series Paper pattern for the tie and then turned it into a fun card to open!

Tonight I’ll be back with another card I’ll be making live, this time using the Springtime Joy Stamp Set, perfect for spring and Easter!!!

Stampin’ Up! Friends are like Seashells Fun Fold Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop theme is fun fold cards! Have fun hopping through the blogs to see what everyone made!

My card starts off with Seaside Spray cardstock, which I cut off a piece off the side of the card front.

I then matted two patterns from the Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper on Basic White cardstock, one for the front and one for the inside.

I took a panel of Basic White cardstock and scored it in half. I adhered half of it to the inside of the card, with the other half covering the card front (not adhered). I matted another pattern from the Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper on Basic White and adhered it to this panel.

I cut out three seashells from yet another pattern from the Sand & Sea DSP (I really love this DSP and how well all the patterns coordinate together) and adhered those to the front.

I then stamped one sentiment in Misty Moonlight ink on a banner of Basic White cardstock for the front and another sentiment in Misty Moonlight ink to the inside.

Thanks for checking out my project today!
