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.

Bye for now!

Stampin’ Up!® Wonderful Snowflakes Season’s Greetings

Although I am not quite ready for Christmas cards, I couldn’t resist using the Wonderful Snowflakes as part of my card for The Paper Players Color Challenge PP567.

Here is my card:

This is a Slim Line card. The card base measures 8 1/2 x 7 inches with a score line at 3 1/2 inches. The scalloped rectangle in the background is not a Stampin’ Up! product, but I hear tell that there are some Slim Line Dies in the upcoming Stampin’ Up! 2022 Jan-June Mini Catalog!

The Wonderful Snowflakes are iridescent! The greeting from the Christmas To Remember stamp set is embossed with Silver Emboss Powder. The embossed snowflakes behind the sentiment are from the Time of Giving stamp set. The ribbon is the White 1/4 inch Crinkled Seam Binding in the Stampin’ Up! 2021-22 Annual Catalog.

I added a lot of Bling! using the Rhinestone Basic Jewels. There are 16 rhinestones on this card!

I love to enter The Paper Player Challenges because I need to push myself to imagine and think outside of my usual modus operandi. I find that I create cards in a new and exciting way.

Voila! That is it for today! Thanks for stopping by. Stop by The Paper Players and see the other entries to the Color Challenge PP567 HERE

Have a most wonderful day!

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!

Stampin’ Up!® Gorgeous Leaves Paper Lattice Thanksgiving Card

Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Paper Lattice Thanksgiving Card. I have a very colorful Thanksgiving Card made using the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set and Intricate Leaves Dies.

I also found a fun trick with the Paper Lattice! This card was inspired by one made by Mary Knabe. Click on the photo below to get to her blog.

Here is Mary Knabe’s card that inspired me

I also got some inspiration from the current Theme Challenge from The Paper Players.

Measurements

Soft Suede Card Stock (CS) card base: 11 x 4 1/4 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches.

Very Vanilla CS: 5 1/4 x 4 inches and 5 1/4 x 3 1/2 inches.

Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz and Crushed Curry CS: 5 1/2 x 3 /8 inches
(one of each except the Pumpkin Pie CS cut two).

Paper Lattice: one.

Label Parts

Very Vanilla CS label from the Tasteful Labels Dies.

Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz and Crushed Curry CS leaves from the Intricate Leaves Dies.

Very Vanilla CS Stitched Rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies (the sentiment is from the Banner Year stamp set and is in Early Espresso ink).

Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim: approx. 7 inches to make one bow.

Stamping

Start by stamping the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Very Vanilla CS which is the inside of the card. Stampin’ Up! inks for this card are: Pumpkin Pie, Pear Pizzazz and Crushed Curry. Decorate the inside by stamping a variety of leaf shapes from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in a variety of color.

Weaving

Now for the fun trick! Gently weave the color CS strips into the Paper Lattice. Flip the Paper Lattice over. I recommend using the Foam Adhesive Sheets cut into 1/4 inch strips to add dimension and hold the paper strips in place on the back of the Paper Lattice.

Assembling the card

Adhere the Paper Lattice to the 5 1/4 x 3 1/2 inch Very Vanilla CS. Follow by adhering the card piece to the front of the Soft Suede CS card Base.

Complete the inside of the card by adhering the stamped 5 1/4 x 4 inch Very Vanilla CS to the inside of the Soft Suede CS card base.

Assembling the Label

Arrange the Intricate Leaves as desired and adhere them to the Very Vanilla Tasteful Label. Use Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the “Happy Thanksgiving” sentiment over the leaves.

Adhere the label to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere the Early Espresso Faux Suede bow just under the sentiment with a Mini Glue Dot.

Add some Champagne Rhinestone Jewels and Voila! you have a fun and colorful Thanksgiving card!

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 #SimpleStamping Friendship Card

Hello! I hope all is going well with you today. We got close to a freeze the other night, but are now back up in the 70’s during the day here in Arizona. I love fall but I don’t like it too cold!

Today I have created a fun #SimpleStamping card for you to try. This card looks more complicated than it is.

I am using Stampin’ Up! product from the Eden’s Garden Collection which is being released today! I will have the item numbers and shopping information at the end of this blog.

Measurements

Basic White Card Stock (CS): card base at 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; One 4 1/2 x 3 3/4 inch piece; and one 2 3/4 x 1 inch piece.

Evening Evergreen CS: 5 1/4 x 4 inches, and two 1 x 7/8 inch squares.

Stamping

On the 4 1/2 x 3 3/4 inch Basic White CS, start out with one type of leaf. Stamp with the Evening Evergreen ink. Add a second type of leaf in the same color of ink. (Note: the 4 1/2 inch edge is on the top and bottom; the 3 3/4 inch edge is on either side)

Switch to the Soft Succulent ink and stamp a third type of leaf. Finish stamping this card piece with a fourth type of leaf in the Soft Succulent ink.

Return to the Evening Evergreen ink and stamp the sentiment “Dear Friend How are you?” onto the 2 3/4 x 1 inch Basic White CS. Next stamp the sentiment “My heart is tied to yours…” on the inside panel of the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Basic White CS card base. Use the Soft Succulent ink to stamp the leaf sprigs on either side of the sentiment.

How To Assemble the Card

Use your Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer to cut the stamped card piece into 1 1/2 inch strips. (Note: the 4 1/2 inch edge is still on the top and bottom; the 3 3/4 inch edge on either side). Adhere the strips to the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Evening Evergreen CS. Adhere this card piece to the front panel of the Basic White CS card base.

To create the sentiment, adhere the two 1 x 7/8 inch Evening Evergreen CS pieces to the ends of the sentiment strip. (Note: the 7/8 inch edge is on either side).

Voila! You have finished a great friendship card using only stamps, ink and paper! That is what #SimpleStamping is all about!

Dress It Up

If you want to “Dress It Up” a bit, add a few of the Garden Gems. I added three to make the card sparkle!

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.
