Bruno & Kylie Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop- June 2022- Stampin’ Up!® This Birthday Piggy

Hello and welcome to our Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Training Blog Hop for June 2022. I’m so happy you are joining me today! This blog hop is full of ideas and creative inspiration.

  2. Wrap the White 1/4 inch Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around the card piece and tie a bow to the left side.
  3. Adhere this card piece to the front panel of the Basic White CS card base.

Stampin’ Up!® New Horizons #SimpleStamping Birthday Cards

The New Horizons Designer Series Paper (DSP) available in the Stampin’ Up! 2022 Mini Catalog is just gorgeous on its own. Combine that with the On the Horizon stamp set and you can create some awesome scenes with the #SimpleStamping Technique. You end up with wonderfully beautiful scenes with very minimal work on your part!

The following cards were part of my last Zoom Card Making Class. Here is an example of a really quick and simple scene using Evening Evergreen and Blackberry Bliss Inks.

Measurements for above card

  • Night of Navy Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches.
  • New Horizons DSP: 4 x 5 1/4 inches. Cut a 1/2 x 5 1/4 inch strip for the inside.
  • Basic White CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches (inside of card)

Instructions

  1. Use the Evening Evergreen Ink to stamp the sentiment “Relax & Enjoy Your Day” in the lower left corner.
  2. Stamp the trio of trees three times across the horizon.
  3. Finish by stamping the birds a few times in Blackberry Bliss Ink.
  4. Voila! That’s it!

If you like to decorate the inside you can do some simple stamping. Add the 1/2 x 5 1/4 inch New Horizons DSP for something extra special. The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.

Here are a few more samples of the way I used the #SimpleStamping Technique to easily and quickly create a series of gorgeous cards! And some of the cards have a very masculine feel for your special guy.

I stamped on the New Horizons DSP, then cut it into 3 pieces to give this card a different look.

Thank you so much for visiting today. I hope you have a wonderful day and have some time to do some crafting! Join me for my next Zoom Card Making Class on April 9, 2022. For more information click HERE.

What I learned from this Friday Fun Fold Pop Up Box Birthday Card

Hello my stamping friends! I hope all has been well with you this week. Today I have a Friday Fun Fold Pop Up Box Birthday Card for you. I learned this fold from Rachel Tessman who made it as a Paper Pumpkin alternative. You can see her card HERE. The first go around I made several mistakes. There will be tips for you so that you will be able to avoid the same mistakes I made.

The New Horizons Designer Series Paper (DSP) is so awesome, I am in love with it! This paper is super great for scenic watercolor backgrounds. I will be using the New Horizons DSP for today’s card along with the Sailing Home stamp set.

This is a photo of the second Friday Fun Fold Pop Up Box Birthday Card card I made. I will give you tips so that your first card comes out right.

Measurements

Friday Fun Fold Pop Up Box Birthday Card

Misty Moonlight Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches.

New Horizons Designer Series Paper (DSP): The scene will be portrait orientation. Cut the 6 x 6 inch scene at 4 1/4 inches first. Then cut the resulting strip to be 1 5/8 x 5 1/2 inches. Cut the scene to be 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches. You will need to use 2 sheets to get both scenes. One scene for the front and one for the back of the card.

Basic White CS: 2 1/2 x 1 inch (for sentiment) and 2 x 4 inch to stamp the larger sailboats on.

Night of Navy CS: 2 3/4 x 1 inch (for sentiment)

Ink: Night of Navy

Scoring the Card Base

Score at 1/2, 2 1/8, 2 5/8, 4 1/4, 5 7/8, 6 7/8 and 8 inches.

Preparing the Card Base

First Tip: Do not burnish the score lines until after you make the slot. Make the slot as thin as you can. The slot on the left is too wide. This made the finished card unstable. Use the Stampin’ Up! Trimmer to get a thin slot. Set the left edge of the card base at 4 5/16 inches and make a cut from 1 1/8 to 4 3/8 inches. Then turn the card base 180° and cut again. Use your paper snips to cut the extra piece off to make the slot.

Second Tip: Adhere the 1 5/8 x 5 1/2 inch strips of the New Horizons DSP close to the 4 1/4 inch score line, but do not cover the score line. The card should be easy to fold.

Stamping

Stamp the large sailboat twice in Night of Navy Ink onto a scrap of Basic White CS. Use a scrap of the News Horizons to stamp the small sailboat twice. You may fussy cut the sailboats or use the Smooth Sailing Dies.

Stamp the desired sentiment onto the 1 x 2 1/2 inch Basic White CS with Night of Navy Ink. I used the “Happy Birthday” from the Celebrating You stamp set.

Assembling the Fun Fold

One difference between my card and Rachel’s is that I wanted an image on both the front and the back of the card. That way there is something to look at forward and backward. Adhere the top of the two sailboat scenes together. Apply a Tear-n-Tape strip to the bottom of the back one.

Insert the sailboat scene through the slot in the card base. Align the bottom of the sailboat scene with the 1/2 inch score line. Take the protective layer off of the Tear-n-Tape on the scene. Fold the base at the 1/2 inch score line so that it sticks to the sail boat scene. Apply a strip of the Tear-n-Tape to the Misty Moonlight bottom.

Peel the protective layer off of the Tear-n-Tape. Adhere the two sailboat scene pieces together. Press down. Apply more Tear-n-Tape over the bottom of the sail boat scene. Remove the protective covering.

Fold the card base at the 4 1/4 inch score line to adhere the sides together.

Here is how the Pop Up Box looks from the side and all the way folded down. Cool right?!

Decorating the Pop Up Box

Tip: The first go around I put the small sailboat on the left and the sentiment on the right. The second time I was able to add the larger sailboat if I put the small sailboat to the right. Note: I forgot to stamp the birds on the sail boat scene for the first card. I really like the scene much better with the birds added.

On the backside, I placed the small sailboat on the left and the larger sailboat on the right as shown.

Be sure to adhere the sail boats and sentiment to the small strip under the DSP piece so that they pop up!

Finished Product

Here are the forward and backward views of the first card.

Here are the forward and backward views of the second card.

Voila! I hope you are successful with this. I really felt a sense of accomplishment after figuring this Fun Fold Pop Up Box Birthday card out.
