Fun Fold Friday: Stampin’ Up!® Blessings of Home and Slim Line Sayings

Hello! Yay for Friday! I have a nice Fun Fold card for you today using both the Blessings of Home and Slim Line Sayings stamp sets. The Heart & Home Designer Series Paper (DSP) really adds a beautiful touch.

I recommend trying to cut this card out with plain paper first. It took a couple of tries for me to get it the way I wanted. Hopefully you’ll get it on the first go around!

Measurements

Blessings of Home and Slim Line Sayings You Are Fabulous Fun Fold Card

  • Night of Navy Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 11 inches
  • Night of Navy CS: 2 3/8 x 3 1/2 inches
  • Misty Moonlight CS: 3 1/8 x 5 1/4 inch
  • Basic White CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inch, 3 1/8 x 5 1/4 inches, and a label from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies
  • Heart & Home DSP: 3 1/8 x 5 1/4 inches

Ink: Night of Navy and Misty Moonlight

Preparing the Card Base

First make a score line at 3 3/8 and 7 5/8 inches. Then make a small notch on the horizontal axis at 1 1/8 and 9 7/8 inches, and on the vertical axis at 1 3/4 inches on each side.

Next make a cut between the score line and notch on the upper part of the card base bilaterally. Finally, cut between the 1 3/4 inch notch on the side and the notch on the bottom bilaterally.

Preparing the Front Panels

I found it easiest to make a pattern to use for this piece. Make a notch on the 3 1/8 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS 1 5/8 inches down the right-hand side and 1 1/8 inches in on the bottom from the right. Use this to cut the 3 1/8 x 5 1/4 inch Heart & Home DSP.

To make the other side, flip the pattern over. Note: This isn’t critical with a solid color, but would be if you were using a DSP on both panels. Cut the 3 1/8 x 5 1/4 inch Misty Moonlight CS. Then run this piece through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Hive 3D Embossing Folder.

Stamping

Using the Misty Moonlight Ink Stamp Off once, then stamp the bunch of flowers from the Blessing of Home stamp set onto the label. Use the Night of Navy Ink to stamp the sentiment “You Really Are FABULOUS” onto the label. The sentiment is from the Slim Sayings stamp set.

Use the Misty Moonlight, Stamping Off once, to stamp the larger flowers onto the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS. Then use the Night of Navy Ink to stamp the sentiment. This sentiment is in the Blessings of Home stamp set.

Assembling the Card

This is the back side of the card. Adhere the embossed Misty Moonlight CS to the left side and the Heart & Home DSP on the right.

Turn the card base over and adhere the inside panel.

Now adhere the sentiment label to the 2 3/8 x 3 1/2 inch Night of Navy CS. Place the sentiment label on the front of the card for placement.

Holding the sentiment in place, open the card. Draw a line with a pencil to mark the edge of the front of the card. Place Stampin’ Dimensionals where the label will adhere to the card front. Adhere the sentiment to the front of the card base.

Add some Bumblebee Trinkets and Voila! you have a fabulous card for someone fabulous!

Thank you for being so fabulous and visiting my blog. Have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend!

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.

  • One Wonderful Snowflake

Links to the supplies are listed at the end of this blog.

Stamping Your Own Designer Series Paper (DSP)

Start out by stamping the largest snowflake in Highland Heather Ink onto the 4 x 6 inch Highland Heather CS. Then Stamp Off once when stamping the next to the largest snowflake.

Next use the Gorgeous Grape Ink and the medium sized snowflakes to stamp in the empty spaces.

To finish this card piece, stamp in Misty Moonlight Ink using the group of tiny snowflakes. This may not look great at this point, but when it is cut up and adhered to the card it will look fantastic!

More Stamping

The next step is to stamp the front of the card. Start by using the Misty Moonlight Ink to stamp the sentiment “Thank You Snow Much” onto the 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 inch Basic White CS. Then Stamp Off once using the largest snowflake with Highland Heather Ink. Using the next to the largest snowflake, stamp at full strength using Highland Heather Ink.

Use the Gorgeous Grape Ink to stamp a medium sized snowflake around the edges.

Finish this card piece by stamping the group of medium snowflakes in Misty Moonlight Ink.

Use the Misty Moonlight Ink with the group of medium snowflakes to stamp around the upper left-hand corner of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS. This will be the inside of the card.

Assembling the Snowflake Wishes Thank You Gift Card Holder

The first step is to cut up the DSP that you made. Cut at 2 1/4 inches and 3 1/4 inches.

Fold the Gorgeous Grape CS card base at the 5 1/2 inch score line. Then fold at the 2 1/2 inch score line. Adhere the 2 3/4 x 4 inch DSP to the left and the 2 1/4 x 4 inch DSP to the right.

Adhere the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS to the inside. Then adhere the 1 x 4 inch DSP to the right-hand side of the Basic White CS.

Punch the end with the Label Me Lovely Punch to create a notch.

Turn the card front over and apply Tear & Tape Adhesive to the upper and lower edges. Tip: Use the Take Your Pick tool to peel the protective cover off.

Fold the card front to adhere the edges and make the pocket for the gift card.

Adhere the Basic White CS card front to the corresponding Gorgeous Grape CS. Lay on the front of the card base to get positioning.

Tip: Flip the card front over to see where to adhere the Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Finishing Touches

Add a finishing touch by applying the Wonderful Snowflake.

And of course-add Bling! The Rhinestone Basic Jewels will add some extra sparkle!

Voila! Such a wonderful way to thank those around you!

Stampin’ Up!®Penguin Place Fun Fold Christmas card

I can’t believe it! Today is the 12th day of my 12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge with my stamping buddy Christy. That went by so fast for me! The card today is a Stampin’ Up!® Penguin Place Fun Fold Christmas Card since it is also Fun Fold Friday!

If you would like to see the whole Gallery of the 12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge you can see it on my Welcome page HERE. Check out all the fabulous products I used that are available in the 2021 Stampin’ Up! July to December Mini Catalog.

Be sure to order in time to make your own Christmas cards! You can order HERE when you have your list ready! Order soon because many of the retiring products in the Mini Catalog are selling out! See the retiring list HERE.

This Penguin Place Fun Fold Christmas Card is just so cute! These penguins are adorable! And I just love the bunch of snowflakes!

And here is how the Penguin Place Fun Fold Christmas Card opens. How cool is that?! A bonus is that this card is really pretty simple to make.

Measurements

Penguin Place Fun Fold Christmas card

  • Basic White Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 11 inches with score lines at 4 1/4 and 8 1/2 inches.
  • Basic White CS: 3 pieces that are 3 x 3 1/2 inches and one 1 x 3 3/4 inch.
  • Real Red CS: 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches.
  • Pattern Party Designer Series Paper (DSP) black with white dots design: 3 x 3 inches.
  • One Wonderful Snowflake
  • Real Red 3/8 inch Double Stitched Satin Ribbon bow.

Stamping

The Stamparatus is a great way to make multiple images in a very short time. Which is what I did. You can stamp them in the standard manner as well. These penguins are stamped in Memento Black, Garden Green, Real Red and Pumpkin Pie Ink. Stamp one upside right, on the right side of the paper. Then rotate the Basic White CS 180 degrees and stamp another upside right. Then you will be able to punch the penguins out with the Penguin Builder Punch.

You will need four penguins with Garden Green scarves, and two with Real Red scarves to make the card exactly as I did.

This greeting “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” is from the Holly Jolly Wishes stamp set. Stamp the greeting in Real Red Ink onto the 1 x 3 3/4 inch Basic White CS. Then stamp the bunch of snowflakes found in the Penguin Place stamp set.

The card folds so that the front panel is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches. The inside flap is 2 1/2 inches so it does not go all the way to the inside score line. On the inside center panel, use the Real Red Ink to stamp the greeting “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year”. This greeting is also from the Holly Jolly Wishes stamp set.

Use Memento Black Ink and the bunch of snowflakes to stamp some all over the front panel.

To complete the stamping. Use Soft Suede Ink to stamp one set of antlers on a scrap of Basic White CS. You will need to fussy cut the antlers.

Creating the Fun Fold

The Layering Circle Dies have both scalloped and smooth-edged circles so they are very versatile. Use the 2 3/4 inch diameter scalloped circle on the front panel. Run it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. This will create a scalloped circle opening.

Use the same scalloped circle die to cut a scalloped circle from the 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch Real Red CS. The black with white dot 3 x 3 inch square is die cut with the 2 3/8 inch diameter Layering Circle Die with a smooth edge.

Fold the card base and use the Bone Folder to make the folds crisp. Apply adhesive to the half panel that peeks through the opening. Adhere the Real Red CS scalloped circle. Take care to line the edge up so that it will be able to be pulled through the opening.

Putting It All Together

Adhere the black with white dot circle. Then adhere the Wonderful Snowflake. Follow by using Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere one of the Garden Green scarf penguins (who has the antlers on his head) and the “Merry Christmas” greeting. Finish with a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the bow.

Open the card. Adhere a Real Red scarf penguin right under the first penguin. Be sure to stay below the edge of the Real Red scalloped circle. Adhere one of the Garden Green penguins to the right of the Real Red one so they look like they are holding hands.

The next Garden Green scarf penguin is adhered to the center panel so that it looks like it is in line with the two penguins on the 2 1/2 inch flap. Open the card fully and adhere the rest of the penguins to the center panel.

Here is what the inside looks like with the 2 1/2 inch flap in place, and with the card fully opened.

Bling!
