Fun Fold Friday- Stampin’ Up!® Artistically Inked Thank You Card

Join me today to make this gorgeous Artistically Inked Thank You card!

It is gradually getting cooler here in Arizona, but I am not quite ready to show Christmas cards yet. Today I have a Fun Fold that I had my Stamping Gems Team members make as a Mystery Stamping activity.

Fun Fold Friday is on!

Mystery Stamping is a fun way to make cards together. You give the clues one by one. Each person picks the paper and stamp set they want to use. All of the cards are uniquely different. Usually you do not show the finished card until the end.

Clue #1 Supplies

  1. Color Card Stock (CS) Color A: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with score lines at 2 1/8 and 6 3/8 inches. (This is the card base and it is in portrait orientation.) You also need a 3 x 2 inch piece.
  2. Color CS Color B: choose a color to coordinate with Color A. Two 4 x 2 5/8 inches.
  3. Designer Series Paper (DSP) to coordinate with the Color A and Color B CS. Two 3 3/4 x 2 3/8 inches.
  4. Basic White CS: 2 3/4 x 1 3/4 inches and 5 1/4 x 4 inches.
  5. A sentiment stamp to fit inside the 2 3/4 x 1 3/4 inch Basic White CS card piece.
  6. Images to make a border around the sentiment and the inside of the card.
  7. Coordinating ink, embellishments, adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Clue #2

Stamp your sentiment onto the 2 3/4 x 1 3/4 inch Basic White CS. Stamp images around the sentiment.

Clue #3

Stamp the images around the outside edge of the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Basic White CS. Leave the center blank so one could write a note.

Clue #4

Adhere the sentiment to the 3 x 2 inch Color A CS. Adhere the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Basic White CS to the center panel of the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Color A CS.

Clue #5

Adhere the DSP to the Color B CS. Repeat for the other pieces. You should have two identical card pieces.

Clue #6

Bring the 2 side panels together so they meet in the center of the card. Apply adhesive to the back of the left half of one of the card pieces with the DSP on it. Adhere this to the top of the left-hand panel. Now apply adhesive to the back of the right side of the second DSP card piece. Adhere it to the bottom of the right-hand panel.

Clue # 7

Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the center of the upper DSP card piece.

Clue #8

Use embellishments as desired.

Voila! That is the Mystery Stamping Fun Fold using the Artistically Inked stamp set and Expressions in Ink DSP! The Mystery Stamping is a really fun way for my Stamping Gems Team and me to stamp together as part of our monthly team meeting.

I hope you have some time to do some crafting this weekend! I find stamping and card making is so peaceful and relaxing.

Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Fun Fold Friday Birthday Card

Hello and Happy Friday! I am so happy to be so close to the weekend! Today I am sharing my Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Fun Fold Friday Birthday Card! Yes, Fun Fold Friday is back!

Disclaimer: Today’s card is a little challenging. I am using few techniques. Let me know if you have any comments or questions about the instructions.

Today I have a very special card to share. My neighbor, who I have know for about 23 years, is turning 98! I am so excited for her! I am giving her this card to help her celebrate! Happy Birthday Jane!

The Card Base

Using the Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer I created the card base in Soft Succulent Card Stock (CS) with the measurements as shown above. All of the lines are scored except the two vertical lines at 1 1/4 inches and 4 1/4 inches which run from 1 inch to 5 1/4 inches in length. You will need to cut the paper along those lines. Fold as shown above.

Measurements

The first layer is Evening Evergreen CS. You will need two 1 x 3 inch pieces, a 3 x 2 3/4 inch piece and a
5 1/4 x 3/4 inch piece. The patterned paper is some of the Ever Eden Cotton Paper that I embossed with Gold Emboss Powder. You can see how to make your own patterned paper HERE. Each measurement is 1/8 inch smaller than the Evening Evergreen CS. You will need two 7/8 x 2 7/8 inch pieces, a 2 7/8 x 2 5/8 inch piece and a 5 1/8 x 5/8 inch piece. If 1/8 inches drives you nuts, you could decrease the Evening Evergreen CS measurements by 1/4 inch instead. The border would be a bit thicker.

The Gold Foil circle is from the Tasteful Labels Dies. The square is made using Partial Die Cutting with a die from the Scalloped Contours Dies. The small flower sprigs are in the Eden Dies. The center photo shows the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set die cut with the Layered Circle Dies. The leaves and berries image is from the Eden’s Garden stamp set. This is fussy cut.

Putting the Card Base Together

The first step is to adhere the Gold Embossed Ever Eden Cotton Paper to the Evening Evergreen CS. I used a thin layer of the Multipurpose Liquid Glue spread with my finger on the back of the Embossed Cotton Paper. Then adhere these card pieces to the corresponding spot on the card base.

Adhere the 2 7/8 x 2 5/8 inch Gold Embossed Ever Eden Cotton Paper to the 3 x 2 3/4 inch Evening Evergreen CS. Follow by using Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the Gold Foil scalloped piece. Adhere this card piece to the center of the card base.

Adding The Decor

Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the stamped leaves and berries card piece to the center of the Gold Foil scalloped square. Adhere the “Happy Birthday” sentiment to the Gold Foil circle. Then use Stampin’ Dimensionals on the bottom half to adhere it to the front of the card base. Note: I put the Stampin’ Dimensionals only in the center of the stamped leaves and berries piece so that I can insert the flower sprigs around the edges.

Insert several of the Evening Evergreen CS flower sprigs around the sentiment and around the leaves and berries image. Add the Gold Foil flower sprigs.

Add a 5 1/4 x 3 inch Very Vanilla CS to the inside of the card. I stamped a few leaves at the edge in Evening Evergreen ink.

Bling!

Now for some Bling! The Garden Gems are really interesting. They appear to be Evening Evergreen with gold accents, but when photographed turn blue and red in places! Very cool!

Voila! You have a very special birthday card that is a little challenging but worth the effort!

It was so nice to have you drop by today. I hope you try this card out. This particular fun fold lends itself to many great cards!

Kylie’s International Blog Highlights Gallery- November 2021- Stampin’ Up!® Eden’s Garden Thank You card

Hello and welcome to Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts! Today I am taking part in Kylie Bertucci’s Monthly International Blog Highlights Gallery. The theme is- Thank You.

In this gallery, you can see thank you cards made by folks from all over the world! I hope you enjoy my card and then take the time to see everyone else’s inspiring creations by visiting the gallery. You can get to the gallery by selecting the Vote For Me button at the end of this blog or by clicking HERE. I would be so grateful if you stop by and vote for my card!

Here is my Eden’s Garden Thank You card. The card is made more elegant by embossing with the Gold Emboss Powder onto the Ever Eden Cotton Paper and using the Gold Foil Sheets with the Eden Dies. The extra sparkle on the flower sprig is from the Garden Gems. The sentiment is part of the Nature’s Harvest stamp set which has a coordinating label die in the Harvest Dies.

The Eden’s Garden Collection is available for purchase now!

I am a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and I have an Online store. If you do not already have a demonstrator I would love for you to shop with me. Shop my Online store HERE

Measurements

Card Base: Soft Succulent Card Stock (CS) 10 x 5 1/2 inches scored at 3 and 7 1/4 inches.

Basic White CS: 5 1/4 x 4 inches.

Ever Eden Cotton Paper: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches

Evening Evergreen CS: 5 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches

Gold Foil Sheet: 5 1/2 x 2 inches

The sentiment label is created with a die cut Gold Foil Flower Sprig from the Eden Dies, an Evening Evergreen CS Stitched Rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies and a label from the Harvest Dies. I used the Nature’s Harvest stamp set for the “Thank You” which is stamped in Evening Evergreen ink.

How To Emboss the Ever Eden Cotton Paper

When I first felt the Ever Eden Cotton paper it reminded me of tissue paper used in wrapping gifts, but thicker. The paper cuts well with the Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer. Be sure you have a fairly new blade. Cut the paper into four 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch pieces. In the photo on the left, I stamped one type of leaf in Versamark and used the Gold Emboss Powder followed by the Heat Tool. As you can see in the second photo, I stamped and embossed a second type of leaf.

In the left-hand photo, I stamped and embossed a third type of leaf. To finish it off, I stamped a fourth type of leaf. The resulting design turned out to make a great pattern!

How To Assemble the Card

Use the gorgeous Eden Dies to cut a border on the 5 1/2 x 2 inch Gold Foil Sheet, the 5 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch Evening Evergreen Card Stock (CS) and the edge of the 3 inch left hand panel on the card base.

Use the Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer to cut the Eden Cotton Paper that has been embossed into two 5 1/2 x 2 1/8 inch strips. Use the Multipurpose Liquid Glue spread thinly and evenly to adhere the Ever Eden Cotton Paper to the panels on the card base as shown.

Adhere the Gold Foil and the Evening Evergreen die cuts together as shown. Adhere them to the lower panel as shown.

When you fold it up, it will look like this.

For the inside of this card I stamped another sentiment from Nature’s Harvest. To make it more interesting I stamped off once then stamped the main floral image from Eden’s Garden over the sentiment.

Add the Evening Evergreen CS Stitched Rectangle label to the card front applying adhesive only to the left side. Adhere the Basic White CS “Thank You” label with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add the Gold Foil floral sprig and the Garden Gems.

The Completed Card

Voila! You have a gorgeous elegant Thank You Card!

Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Sympathy Card-how to make a card from a sketch

Hello! Hope your day is going well. I am playing with the new Eden’s Garden Collection which will be available on November 3, 2021.

Often I have a hard time coming up with an idea for a card. Quite a while ago, I started to make sketches of the cards I received on a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch Basic White cardstock. When I am stumped, I look through the sketch cards. Today I am going to share the sketch and the card I created from it.

This is the sympathy card I created with the Eden’s Garden Collection using the sketch. I especially love the Ever Eden Designer Series Paper (DSP) with the gold foil accents. Fabulous!

The Sketch

Here are the sketch and the finished card side by side.

Supplies

Card base: Evening Evergreen Card Stock (CS) 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches

1st Layer: Gold Foil 5 1/4 x 4 inches

Ever Eden DSP: two at 5 x 1 3/4 inches

Top Layer: Basic White CS 3 1/2 x 2 3/4 inches and Evening Evergreen CS 3 5/8 x 2 7/8 inches.

Stamping

I stamped the floral image several times, first in Evening Evergreen ink and then in Soft Succulent ink. I liked the Soft Succulent flower with the Evening Evergreen sentiment on the bottom (bottom right).

Putting It All Together

The first step is to adhere the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Gold Foil to the Evening Evergreen CS card base. (Tip: A little trick I learned to save my Gold Foil is to use dies to cut out shapes before covering it up. The sprigs are for another card.) Next adhere the two pieces of the Ever Eden DSP.

Finish the card front by adhering the stamped Basic White CS to the Evening Evergreen CS. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere this to the card front. I added some of the Garden Gems around the flowers. Next, I stamped a 5 1/4 x 4 inch Basic White CS with the sentiment on the right and framed it with the little sprig for the inside of the card.

Voila! You have a beautiful sympathy card.

Kylie’s Stampin’ Up!® International Blog Highlights Gallery- October 2021- Love of Leaves and Color & Contour Fall Thank You card

Hello and welcome to Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts today! I have a beautiful fall card made with Stampin’ Up!® Love of Leaves and Color & Contour stamp sets. Stampin’ Up! has several colors that are perfect for fall! You will find everything you need in the Stampin’ Up! 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

Today I am taking part in Kylie Bertucci’s Monthly International Blog Highlights Gallery. The theme is- Thank You. In this gallery, you can see thank you cards made by people from all over the world! I hope you enjoy my card and take the time to see everyone else’s inspiring creations by visiting the gallery. You can get to the gallery by selecting the Vote For Me button at the end of this blog. Please stop by and vote for my card.

I am Theresa and I am a Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator in Arizona, USA. If you do not have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, live in the US, and would like a copy of the catalog, please send a request to my email: theresastreasures.az@gmail.com. I would love to help you get started on stamping and making you own cards!

Making the card-Stamping

The first step in making this card is to stamp all of the leaves from the Love of Leaves stamp set onto Basic White Card Stock (CS). The Stampin’ Up! ink colors for the leaves are: Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody and Cajun Craze. Next stamp the flowers from the Color & Contour stamp set onto Basic White CS. The outline of the flowers is inked in Cajun Craze. The flower color is Mango Melody.

Coordinating Dies

Now you can use the coordinating dies for the Love of Leaves stamp set- the Stitched Leaves Dies. These dies both cut and emboss! You can see the embossed stitching on each of the leaves. The upper edge of the background is embossed with one of the dies in this set.

To make the flowers more 3D, I used the round end of the cap on the Take Your Pick Tool to apply gentle pressure to the back of the flowers. This makes them more puffy.

Arranging the Pieces

Now that you have all the pieces, you can arrange them how you like. First adhere the Mango Melody background onto a Cajun Craze CS card base. Lay the leaves down on the card front first until you like the look. Then add the flowers. Next, adhere everything in place. Add the Genial Gems as desired to the flower center for extra sparkle.

The sentiment is stamped in Cajun Craze ink onto a 1/2 inch Basic White CS strip. Add the sentiment to your card.

Voila! You have a beautiful fall Thank You card! Feel free to decorate the inside of the card too!

Stampin’ Up!® #SimpleStamping Birthday With Amaryllis Abloom

This lovely birthday card is actually very simple to make with the Amaryllis Abloom stamp set. This set is available when you Host a Party and reach a sales goal of $150 USD. If you would like to host an online Stampin’ Up! party, let me know at theresastreasures.az@gmail.com

Stamping

The card base is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Poppy Parade card stock that is scored at 4 1/4 inches. Fold the card base in half at the score line. Use Poppy Parade ink to stamp the images randomly over the front panel.

Next stamp onto a 2 1/2 x 4 inch Basic White cardstock. Start with the amaryllis. Use Garden Green for the leaves and stem and Poppy Parade for the amaryllis. Place the stamp on the ink pad carefully so that the Poppy Parade ink is only on the amaryllis and the Garden Green ink is only on the stem and leaves. Huff on it to moisten the ink and then stamp. Remember to use your Stampin’ Pierce Mat since this is a Photopolymer stamp to get the best stamped images.

Add a “Happy Birthday” sentiment. This one is from the Pansy Patch stamp set, but you could use any “Happy Birthday” sentiment. Add the diamond design under the sentiment with Garden Green ink.

Stamp a design onto a 5 1/4 x 4 inch Basic White card stock for the inside panel.

Assembling the card

Adhere the stamped Basic White card stock card piece to the center of the front of the Poppy Parade card base. Adhere the inside panel to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base.

Voila! This is a great #simplestamping card! I hope you give it a try.

About the Daisy Punch Fall Thank You card

Fall is one of my favorite times of year. I just love all of the rich colors which inspired me to make this Daisy Punch Fall Thank You card. I made this card with the following Stampin’ Up! colors: Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and Old Olive. The Regals Designer Series Paper Stack which contains all of these colors is great for the background. The strips each measure 3/8 inch in width.

You also will see several embellishments I used to make the Daisy Punch Fall Thank You card extra special. The vintage Diamond Weave Ribbon #156507 and the Brushed Metallic Dots #156506 can be found in the 2021 Stampin Up! July-December Mini Catalog. The colorful sequins are from the Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins #152477 and can be found in the Stampin’ Up! 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

Voila! Such a lovely combination of fall colors in this Daisy Punch Fall Thank You card!

Thank You Card for Bruno and Kylie Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop- August 2021 with Daisy Garden by Stampin’ Up!®

Thank you for joining me today for our Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Blog Hop! I am so excited to show you a Thank You card made with product from the 2021-2022 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog! Be sure to visit all the blogs and see all the different Thank You cards from around the world! I know you will get lots of ideas and creative inspiration!

The theme for the cards today is: Thank You. I am grateful to have customers who support me and I send them a Thank You card every once in awhile. The following set of cards is for my fabulous customers who ordered during the summer.

I really enjoyed making this card using Embossing and the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers.

Embossing

I chose the Evening Evergreen Card Stock as my background because I wanted a nice contrast. The first step is to stamp the Daisy Garden stamp onto the Evening Evergreen CS with Versamark ink and use the White Emboss Powder. Be sure to let the powder cool after using the Heat Tool. You don’t want the melted Emboss Powder to smear when you try to color the daisies. I ended up just coloring the flowers. When I colored the stems, it did not really show up well.

Coloring

This is a close up of my coloring. I applied the Light Polished Pink Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Markers to the entire flower. Then I used the Dark Polished Pink around the center of the flowers. I used the Light Polished Pink again to blend the colors together.

I experimented with several different colors for these daisies.

The sentiment is from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set.

Voila! You have a fairly quick and simple Thank You card.

Thanks for stopping by Theresa’s Treasures. Look through the list below to see who is next in line for the Blog Hop.

I hope you enjoy my card and take the time to see everyone else’s inspiring creations by visiting the gallery. You can get to the gallery by selecting the “Vote For Me” button at the end of this blog.

My goal for this card was to use all of the elements in the Harvest Meadow Suite Collection. The stamp set is Nature’s Harvest and the coordinating dies are the Harvest Dies. You can purchase these together with a 10% discount by ordering the Nature’s Harvest Bundle #156813.

The background is the Harvest Meadow 12 x 12 inch Designer Series Paper #156494 which was embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder #156505 on a Very Vanilla Card Stock (CS) card base. I used the Stitched Rectangle dies to cut the Cork 12 x 12 Specialty Paper #156393. The cork card piece behind the sentiment is the center of the rectangle frame. A Cinnamon Cider CS Stitched Rectangle is the background for the flowers. The flowers and sentiment are stamped in the Saddle Brown Stazon Ink so that I could use the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers for coloring. The colors of the Stampin’ Blends are: Light Pumpkin Pie, Dark So Saffron and Light Soft Succulent.

The finishing touches included using the 3/8 inch diamond Weave Ribbon #156507 and the Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots #156506.

Stampin’ Up!® Quiet Meadow Thank You for the Paper Players PP541

I have been wanting to participate in The Paper Players Challenges for several weeks now. Life just seems to get in the way. Today I had some time to prepare a Clean and Simple card using Polka Dots for The Paper Players Challenge PP541.

I just love the Quiet Meadow stamp set in the 2021-2022 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog with the delicate flowers. My Grandmother used to have a fabulous flower garden in Kentucky. There were so many beautiful flowers but one of my favorite was the Sweet Williams. The flowers on this card look like the Sweet Williams, so that is how I colored them.

Here is a close up to show you the coloring more easily. I used the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers in Magenta Madness and Granny Apple Green. These come in a light and dark shade so you can make the image more 3D. I still need a little practice on the shading.

Here is the photo I referred to for my coloring. I have tried to grow Sweet Williams here in Arizona but the deer think they are dessert!

I really enjoyed making this card. I did use the Masking Technique to stamp the Polka Dot pattern around the Sweet Williams.

I have listed the supplies I used to make this card below. I am an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. If you do not already have a Demonstrator, I would love to be your Demonstrator.
