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.

What do you “see” in your minds eye when you look at this fabulous paper?

I saw a sunset scene. This scene is so peaceful and serene for me. All I did was to use the On the Horizon stamp set to add the birds and trees using Polished Pink Ink.

Stampin’ Up!® Sneak Peek-Tulip Fields

I have another sneak peek from the upcoming 2022 Stampin’ Up! Jan-June Mini Catalog- Tulip Fields! This is an awesome stamp set which is part of the Flowering Fields Suite. This suite includes: 2 stamp sets, 2 die sets, the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper (DSP), Evening Evergreen Windowpane Check Ribbon, and Brushed Brass Butterflies!! If you want this Suite now you can get it in your Starter Kit when you join my Stamping Gems Team! More info on that will follow. Otherwise, the Flowering Fields Suite will be available for purchase on January 4, 2022.

It is so much fun to put scenes like this one together! I encourage you to take some time to let your creativity bubble up and see what your scene might look like!

Measurements for Sneak Peek-Tulip Fields

Sneak Peek-Tulip Fields

  • Pear Pizzazz Card Stock (CS): 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches
  • Basic White CS: two at 4 x 5 1/4 inches and a 1/2 x 3 inch strip.

Stamping the Tulip Fields

The first step is to use Memento Black Ink and stamp the windmill onto one of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS. Also stamp a windmill onto a sticky note. (Full sticky notes work best and can be found on Amazon HERE.) The windmill will be used as a Mask.

Fussy cut the windmill stamped on the sticky note paper. Set aside. Now draw a light pencil line for the horizon and another 2 lines for the path away from the door of the wind mill.

The Masking Technique. First put a strip of sticky paper above the horizon. This is the first mask. Use Poppy Parade Ink to stamp the triangle of tulips as shown.

Cover the path with sticky note paper. Stamp in Daffodil Delight Ink to one side of the path. Move the sticky paper and then stamp on the other side of the path.

Use the sticky note paper to help you stamp a row of tulips in Mango Melody Ink between the Poppy Parade tulips and the Daffodil Delight tulips. To finish, complete the row of flowers up to the horizon stamping in Rich Razzleberry Ink.

Blending the Sky

Now move the sticky note strip so it is under the horizon. Apply the fussy cut windmill.

Use the Stampin’ Up! Blending Brushes to make a nice sky. Start with the Balmy Blue Ink. Move the Blending Brush in a circular motion on the ink pad. Then using the same circular motion, gradually apply the ink to your card front. I liked that the sky turned out a little blotchy. Next use Pacific Point Ink just around the edges to help the scene “Pop”!

Coloring the Windmill

Remove the sticky strip and the sticky windmill. Save the windmill to use again later. Use the Stampin’ Write Markers in Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede to color the windmill.

More Stamping

Reapply the sticky strip mask to define the path from the door of the windmill. Use Pear Pizzazz Ink and the triangle of tulip stamp to complete the path.

Tip: I used the Stampin’ Write Markers to fill in some small white spaces between the different colors of tulips.

A trick for stamping the tree in two colors. First ink up the tree in Pear Pizzazz ink. Then carefully ink up the trunk using the corner of the Soft Suede ink pad. Stamp the tree on the horizon.

Add some more smaller trees on the horizon.

Finishing Touches

Use Pear Pizzazz Ink to stamp the sentiment “happy birthday” from the Timeless Tulips stamp set onto a 1/2 inch strip of Basic White CS. Cut the right-hand end to look like a banner.

Another coordinating stamp set, Timeless Tulips, is in the 2021-22 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. With the Rich Razzleberry Ink, stamp a few of the small tulips on the second 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS. Then stamp one in Mango Melody Ink and three in Poppy Parade Ink. Finish the stamping by adding some leaves in Pear Pizzazz Ink.

To create the clouds you will need the White Stampin’ Chalk Marker. First stamp the clouds in Balmy Blue Ink. Let them dry. Then use the Chalk Marker to add dimension to the clouds.

Assembling the Card

Adhere the windmill card piece to the front of the Pear Pizzazz CS card base. Then adhere the larger tulip piece to the inside of the card base. That’s all there is to it!

Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the “happy birthday” sentiment and Voila! You have a beautiful little scene! That was so much fun! I just love how it turned out!

Stampin’ Up!® Peaceful Deer Christmas Card

I am on Day 10 of the “12 Days of Christmas Card Making Challenge” with my stamping buddy Christy. Today’s card is a Stampin’
Up!® Peaceful Deer Christmas Card. Each day of this challenge my blog will focus on a new holiday card. The challenge goes until December 10, 2021. I plan to showcase a different stamp set with each card. This will allow you plenty of time to see the fabulous products that are available in the 2021 Stampin’ Up! July to December Mini Catalog, and to order in time to make your own Christmas cards! You can order HERE when you have your list ready!

Remember there is FREE shipping today, Dec 8, 2021, only on orders of $50 or more! Click on the free shipping image to go shopping in my Online Store.

And now for the Peaceful Deer Christmas card:

Oh deer! Look at this card with the Layering Diorama and the adorable deer (and bunny). This card is so much fun to create! Let me show you how to make one for yourself. I will go step-by-step.

Measurements

  • Garden Green Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches.
  • Garden Green CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches and 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 inches
  • Basic White CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches (inside), 3 x 4 1/2 inches (deer) and 2 x 3 inches (sentiment).
  • Painted Christmas 12 x 12 inch Designer Series Paper (DSP): 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches.
  • Pattern Party 12 x 12 inch DSP: 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 inch of the white with black dot design (not shown).

Stamping

Start by stamping the “Merry Christmas” in Real Red Ink on the 4 x
5 1/4 inch Basic White CS. Using Memento Ink, stamp the lying down deer on the lower right-hand corner. Now stamp the leaping and the standing deer, the lying deer (not shown) and the bunny onto the 3 x
4 1/2 inch Basic White CS. Note: I forgot to stamp the lying deer at this time and had to do it later.

In Garden Green Ink stamp a tall tree and the small trio of trees. Fussy cut the trees.

Finish with the stamping by using the Real Red Ink to stamp the sentiment “Sending love & peace This Season” onto the 2 x 3 inch Basic White CS. I used a label die from the Potted Succulents Die set to cut the sentiment out.

Coloring the Animals

The Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Markers are great for these animals. The deer are colored in Light and Dark Cinnamon Cider, and Ivory. The bunny is colored in the Light and Dark Smoky Slate and Petal Pink. Don’t forget to color the lying down deer on the inside panel. Fussy cut the leaping and standing deer, lying down deer(not shown) and bunny for the front of the card. Do not cut the inside panel that has the lying down deer on it!

Creating the Diorama

The Layering Diorama Dies are pictured on the left. Use the 2nd and 4th one from the center. Use the larger one to cut the Painted Christmas DSP. Center the die then move it up to about 1/4 inch from the top. Use Sticky Tape to hold it in place. Cut with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Lay the DSP with the hole in it over the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Garden Green CS.

Place the smaller Layering Diorama Die in the center and use sticky tape to keep in place. Run it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Now you have 2 layers.

Place the Garden Green CS with the hole in it over the front of the Garden Green CS card base. Trace the hole with a pencil.

Adhere the Pattern Party DSP to cover the tracing.

Place Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Garden Green CS with the hole in it. Adhere to the card front over the Pattern Party DSP.

Similarly, place Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the Painted Christmas DSP. Adhere over the top of the Garden Green CS. Now you have your layered diorama! Tip: Avoid placing dimensionals right up to the edge of the hole because you will need room to insert the trees and deer.

Adding the Animals

Insert the larger tree first. I placed one Stampin’ Dimensional toward the top to lift the tree out a bit. Next add the standing deer. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals on all the animals. Add the leaping deer and the trio of trees. (Here is when I realized I did not have the lying deer! Lol!). Add the lying deer and the bunny.

Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment. Add some Bling! (Rhinestone Basic Jewels) to make stars in the sky. Tie a bow with the Real Red 3/8 inch Ruffled Ribbon and adhere with Mini Glue Dots. Adhere the inside panel with the Merry Christmas sentiment on it to the inside of the Garden Green CS card base.

Voila! That wasn’t too bad. Looks more complicated than it really is. What a fabulous Christmas card to send to an animal lover! Or anyone who likes the outdoors.

I am so honored and excited to be participating in today’s Top 10 Winners Hop for Bruno and Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights! I thank everyone who voted for my card in that hop. I combined a lot of elements to make this Gorgeous Leaves Thank You card. Saying “Thank you” is so important! You can never have enough Thank You cards.

I primarily used the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set and Intricate Leaves Dies. Additional stamp sets used for this card included: Very Versailles (the background script) and Pansy Patch (Thank You sentiment). The label for the sentiment is from the Harvest Dies.

I took full advantage on the many fall colors Stampin’ Up!® has. The colors I used for this card are: Bumblebee, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Cinnamon Cider, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive.

Although they are difficult to see in this photo, the Genial Gems add a little sparkle to the Gorgeous Leaves Thank You card.

Welcome to Theresa’s Treasures today. I am Theresa and I am a Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator in Arizona, USA. Today I am taking part in Kylie Bertucci’s Monthly International Blog Highlights Gallery. The theme is- Thank You. On this gallery, you can see thank you cards made by folks from all over the world! I hope you enjoy my card and take the time to see everyone else’s creations.

I used a Watercolor Technique that I recently made up to create a serene background for the dragonfly. The dragonfly is from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set, There is a Dragonflies Punch also! The sentiment, which I love, is from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set. All of these products and more can be viewed in the 2021 January to June Stampin’ Up!® Catalog HERE and purchased HERE.

Watercolor Technique

To create this watercolor you will need some of the Fluid 100 Watercolor paper on page 153 in the Annual Catalog and the Water Painters set on page 147. Apply a fair amount of water on the Watercolor paper where you would like the horizon to be.
