Trucking Along Bundle for the Inspirations in Ink Fun Fold Blog Hop – September 2023

Today I have an awesome Trucking Along Bundle Slit Slider Birthday Card!

Welcome and thanks for visiting Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts! I am Theresa, a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Arizona, USA. Today is the monthly Inspirations in Ink Blog Hop! I am excited to be hopping with talented demonstrators from around the world. Be sure to check out everyone’s Fun Fold projects. The Trucking Along Bundle is an Online Exclusive and is not found in any catalog. You may order from my Online Store HERE.

Today’s Blog Hop is a Fun Fold Hop. Each of us is demonstrating a different Fun Fold. I first learned about the Slit Slider Card from Tina Hamp, who learned it from Julie Davidson. Tina made a Slit Slider Card with the Legendary Ride motorcylcle set. Julie did a cute Slit Slider Card with an octopus. Julie has a video demonstrator of her card HERE.


  • Early Espresso cardstock card base: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 1/2″ & 4 1/2″
  • Basic White cardstock: 3 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside) and 3/4″ x 3″ (mechanism)
  • One Horse Open Sleigh 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper (DSP):
    3 3/4″ x 5 1/4″


  • Trucking Along stamp set & punch
  • Beside Me stamp (Celebrating You Today sentiment)
  • Peaceful Moments stamp (Happy Birthday sentiment)
  • Ink: Memento Black & Early Espresso
  • Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers: Pecan Pie, Boho Blue, Misty Moonlight, Azure Afternoon, Night of Navy, Blueberry Bushel Basic Black, Smoky Slate, Gray Granite and Color Lifter
  • Foam Adhesive Strip
  • Multipurpose Liquid Glue
  • Tear & Tape Adhesive
  • 3/8″ Textured Ribbon in Boho Blue
  • Adhesive Backed Snowflake Assortment (Online Exclusive)
  • Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels
  • Wink of Stella


Prepare the Card Base

  1. Adhere the designer series paper to the Early Espresso card base.
  2. Make a circular finger notch at the midline of the DSP panel on the left. (Use the Circle Dies or the retired 1″ circle punch)
  3. Place the Early Espresso card base in your trimmer at the 1 1/2″ mark, with the 1/2″ score line to the left.
  1. Make a cut from 3/4″ down to 4 3/4″.


  1. Use Memento Ink to stamp the pick up truck on a scrap of Basic White cardstock. Stamp the “Farm Fresh” sentiment on the door.
  2. Color with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers as desired.
  1. Stamp the “Happy Birthday” sentiment on the Basic White cardstock for the inside. Punch a hole in the midline near the left edge for the ribbon. Thread the ribbon through the hole. Tip: this ribbon frays easily so I used a lighter to melt the ends.
  2. Stamp “Celebrate You Today” to straddle the slit and so that it will hide behind the pick up truck.

Putting it Together

  1. Take out the 3/4″ x 3″ Basic White cardstock strip. Add a strip of the Adhesive Foam Strips to the bottom as close to the edge as possible. This is the mechanism for moving the pick up.
  1. Slide the strip into the slit, up underneath until the strip of Foam Adhesive Strips is close to the slit.
  2. Flip this over.
  1. Apply Multipurpose Liquid Glue (or Tear & Tape) to 2/3 of the top of the Basic White cardstock strip.
  2. Adhere the Basic White cardstock with the Happy Birthday sentiment to the strip by laying it in position to cover the panel. Be sure the Happy Birthday is on the back to the right.
  1. Fold the Early Espresso cardstock on the score lines. Use a strip of Tear & Tape on the 1/2″ flap. Fold the top panel down over the 1/2″ strip and secure it.
  2. Flip over to the front. Adhere the pick up to the mechanism.
  1. Add the Wink of Stella to the snow drifts.
  2. Add the Iridescent Rhinestones as desired.

Paper Florist Dies for the Ink and Inspiration Blog Hop-August 2023

Hello fellow stampers! You are visiting with Theresa McEntee-author of Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts. I am hopping with the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop today. There are several of us- you will find the list to follow the hop at the end of my blog post.

The Ink & Inspiration Challenge is both an image and a color challenge. I was inspired by the image because I had been wanting to use the Paper Florist Dies. These dies do not have a corresponding stamp set but they are loads of fun on their own!

The colors were also very inspirational. I love flowers. The combination of colors for this challenge brought to mind several different types of flowers I am fond of. Tiger Lillies and roses are two of them.

My goal was to make the flowers as real as possible. I tried several ways to color the flowers after diecutting them. I used Blending Brushes, Sponge Daubers and Stampin’ Write Markers. You may enjoy trying to make flowers you like!

The inside of the card needed a pretty flower. The Artistically Inked stamp set had a rose that I liked. I stamped it in Flirty Flamingo Ink. The leaves are stamped in Granny Apple Green Ink and Garden Green Ink. (I may have overdone the leaves! Lol!)

I found that making the flowers was very relaxing. It really did not take long to diecut the pieces. I hope you give the Paper Florist Dies a go!

  • Copper Clay cardstock card base: 4 1/4″ x 11″ with a score line at
    5 1/2″
  • Very Vanilla cardstock: 2 1/2″ x 4 1/2″, 2″ x 2 1/2″, 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ and 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ (inside)
  • Earthen Elegance Designer Series Paper (DSP): 4″ x 5 1/4″


  • Earthen Textures stamp set
  • Ink: Pecan Pie, Copper Clay, Pretty Peacock and Moody Mauve
  • Brushed Metallic Dots
  • Natural 1/4″ Wavy Trim
  • Bone Folder
  • Foam Adhesive Strips
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Mini Glue Dots
  • Multipurpose Liquid Glue

  1. Stamp Off a clay pot onto the bottom of the 2 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ Very Vanilla cardstock.
  2. Also stamp a clay pot in Copper Clay Ink onto the 2″ x 2 1/2″ Very Vanilla cardstock. Fussy cut this pot. Note: I did not use the Earthen Textures Dies to cut out the pot because the die cuts off the edges of the pot.
  3. Place a sticky note over the bottom of the Stamped Off clay pot. This will prevent the stems from showing at the bottom.
  4. Stamp the various branches and leaf fronds so that they appear to be in the Stamped Off clay pot. I used Pecan Pie Ink for the full leaf frond, Pretty Peacock Ink for the open leaf frond and Moody Mauve Ink for the branch with the small flowers on it.
  5. Stamp the “Thank You” sentiment in Pretty Peacock Ink onto the 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ Very Vanilla cardstock strip.
  1. For the inside of the card, stamp the various branches in the same colors that you used on the front of the card.
  2. Adhere the inside card piece to the inside of the Copper Clay cardstock card base.
  3. Adhere the Earthen Elegance DSP to the front of the card base.
  4. Adhere the Very Vanilla cardstock with the Stamped Off pot and branches to the card front.
  5. Use your Bone Folder on the fussy cut clay pot to curl the cardstock. This will create a curved 3D pot.
  6. Apply a Foam Adhesive Strip down the center of the curved pot.
  7. Adhere the curved pot to the card front over the Stamped Off clay pot.
  8. Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the right side of the sentiment. Use a drop of Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the back of the left side. Adhere the sentiment to the card front.
  9. Pull 2 strings off of the Wavy Ribbon and tie a bow. Adhere to the top of the clay pot with a mini Glue dot.
  10. Embellish with the copper Metallic Dots.

Around the World On Wednesday Blog Hop – August 2023- Never Ever Grow Up

Hello and welcome! I am Theresa McEntee, creator of Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts. For the first time today I have the pleasure of participating in the Blog Hop with Around the World on Wednesday (AWOW) organized by Angie McKenzie. On the second Wednesday of each month, the AWOW team put together a thematic hop to give you some inspiration for your own crafting. “Never ever grow up” is this month’s theme.

Each month this group of creative friends design a project for a theme. At the end of this blog, is an image of all of the crew and where they are from around the globe. Such a talented and wonderful group of people. You will want to visit everyone to be sure to see all the amazing projects!

My Project for today

For this theme-Never ever grow up– I was thinking about something that you never stop needing through out your life–hugs! So I was on a mission to find a Stampin’ Up!® stamp set with an image of someone hugging someone else. I never imagined the image would be a cute baby sloth being hugged by their mother!

The Sweet & Precious stamp set is perfect for this theme. Their are 3 images that I could have chosen from. The sloths had the best image of a hug.

Project Details

This card is a fun fold. The pattern for the card base will be shown at the end and is in USA inches and metric.

Next I needed some patterned paper to use, Designer Series Paper(DSP) in Stampin’ Up! lingo. I couldn’t find what I wanted, so I made my own! The underlying DSP is the in the Subtles 6″x 6″ (15.2cm x 15.2cm) DSP pack.

The Soft Sea Foam paper was chosen because I wanted a very soft color. Then after I had cut the DSP paper pieces, I used the leaf stamp from the Sweet & Precious stamp set with Old Olive Ink to stamp the leaves over the DSP.

Lemon Lolly cardstock and Pecan Pie cardstock were chosen to compliment the Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

Stamping & Completing the Project

The sloth image is stamped in Crumb Cake Ink. Next a mask was cut from full stick sticky paper to cover the sloths. The Blending Brushes gently applied Soft Sea Foam Ink over the leaves. Pool Party Ink made the perfect sky.

The next step was to color the leaves and the sloths with the Watercolor Pencils Assortment 1.

The inside of the card was created with the leaves stamp and Old Olive Ink.

To complete the card, the sentiment (cut to fit in the oval) was stamped in Pecan Pie Ink. “Bring on the cuddles” is such a lovely sentiment! The Double Oval Punch was used to punch out the sentiment with the smooth edged oval. The scalloped-edged oval is punched out of Pecan Pie cardstock.

To finish the card up, I added Brushed Brass Butterflies and a bow made from the Sheer Pool Party Ribbon.

The AWOW Team

I am so glad you have joined me today in this worldwide hug that stretches all the way from Hawaii to New Zealand.  We all love sharing joy with you through projects from our individual parts of the world. I hope that you will be filled with lots of inspiration!

This Sweet & Precious Thank You Card was created using the Sweet & Precious stamp set in the 2023-24 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.

Current Host Code: QNJKQJNV

  8. Adhere the Holographic paper over the Blueberry Bushel Radiating Stitches rectangle.
