Ink: Granny Apple Green, Blackberry Bliss and Evening Evergreen
Start out with the Granny Apple Green Ink and the grass stamp from the On the Horizon stamp set. Stamp the grass on the lower portion. Next use the Evening Evergreen Ink and the small trees. Stamp some trees at full strength. For other trees Stamp Off once. This makes the trees more 3D.
To finish the card, use Blackberry Bliss Ink to stamp some birds and the sentiment “Breathe”. Now take a breath and admire your work.
Adhere the 3/4 inch strip of the New Horizons DSP to the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS. This is the inside of the card. Use the Blackberry Bliss Ink to stamp some birds in the upper left-hand corner.

“Let today be the start of something new” is the sentiment for the Friday Fun Fold Stampin’ Up!® Tulip Fields card today. It is a great inspirational sentiment to start the New Year!
This beautiful inspirational handmade fun fold card is really pretty simple to make. Just follow the step-by-step photographic tutorial below. A complete photographic and clickable supply list is found at the end of the blog.
Measurements for the Fun Fold Stampin’ Up!® Tulip Fields
Rich Razzleberry Card Stock (CS) card base: 8 1/2 x 11 inches. With the 8 1/2 inch edge on top, score at 2 1/8 and 6 3/8 inches. Turn the card stock so the 11 inch side is on top and score at 2 3/4 and 8 1/8 inches. Cut off the corners as shown.
Rich Razzleberry CS: 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 inches.
Fresh Freesia CS: 1 x 10 inches scored at 2 1/8 and 6 3/4 inches.
Basic White CS: 2 1/4 x 4 inches and 4 x 5 1/4 inches (not shown)
Flowering Tulips Designer Series Paper (DSP): 2 x 2 1/2 inches. *Be sure the pattern is in portrait orientation
Stamp on the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS. The tulips are a 3 step stamp. The first step is to stamp the outline in the Rich Razzleberry Ink. The second step is done in the Fresh Freesia Ink with the stamp to fill in the color. Note: Remember to use the Stampin’ Pierce Mat or a catalog to stamp on when using the clear Photopolymer Stamps.
For the third step I used Blackberry Bliss Ink. Repeat the process for the tulip bud.
Add stems using Soft Succulent Ink. You will need to use a piece of paper to mask the tulip under the tulip bud when stamping the stem for the bud.
The leaves are 2 step stamps. I used the Evening Evergreen Ink first, then the Soft Succulent Ink. And there you have the inside of the card!
Using the Blackberry Bliss Ink, stamp the sentiment on the bottom portion of the 2 1/4 x 4 inch Basic White CS. Use the Label Me Lovely Punch to punch it out. Then use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the label to the 2 1/4 inch square of Rich Razzleberry CS.
Assembling the Card
To fold the Rich Razzleberry CS card base, start by folding the bottom flap up. Fold the left-hand flap to the right. Then fold the top flap down. Finally, fold the right-hand flap over to the left.
Now tuck the bottom corner of the right-hand flap under the right-hand corner of the bottom flap. This is the same as the way you would fold the top of a box. Tip: Be more gentle than I was as I made a slight crease on the bottom flap.
Adhere the Flowering Tulip DSP pieces as shown.
Open the card up and adhere the inside panel to the inside of the card base.
Fold the card and wrap the 1 x 10 inch Fresh Freesia CS band around the middle of the card. Adhere at the front. Be sure NOT to adhere the band to the card. Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the band and adhere the sentiment label to the band. The band shown slide off easily.
One of my favorite embellishments in the new 2022 Stampin’ Up! January-June Mini Catalog is the Brushed Brass Butterflies! You can easily transfer the butterflies to your card with the Take Your Pick tool. They are so shiny!
Voila! The Fun Fold Stampin’ Up!® Tulip Fields inspirational card is finished! Give this one a try, it is a lot of fun. The first time around is always the most difficult. Tip: I often will make a new fun fold card with just the Basic White CS first until I get the hang of it.

I have a follow up on a post I did on the In The Moment stamp set and different coloring techniques. The most popular technique was the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Marker! I must admit that I really love to color with the Blends.
Ok, now for the Friendly Hello #SimpleStamping Birthday Card!
The #SimpleStamping Challenge for this month was to create a card using just Stamps, Ink and paper-and to use a Sale-a-bration product.
This card is made with the Friendly Hello Stamp Set + Friendly Hello 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper (DSP) which is available as a set with an order of $100 USD.
Here is how I did it:
Friendly Hello #SimpleStamping Birthday Card:
Basic White Card Stock (CS): 4 x 5 1/4 inches and 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 inches
Friendly Hello DSP: 4 x 5 1/4 inches
Pale Papaya CS card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches.
Granny Apple Green
Starting with the inside of the card, stamp the flowers in Pale Papaya ink onto the 4 x 5 1/2 inch Basic White CS. Next stamp in Granny Apple Green ink using the leaf sprig. Finish with the Fresh Freesia ink and the small berry bunch. Set aside.
Now we will make the front of the card. Using Balmy Blue Ink, stamp the image of the bird on the branch in the center of the 3 1/3 x 4 3/4 inch Basic White CS. Next stamp the sentiment “Hope you have the BEST BIRTHDAY” in Evening Evergreen Ink in the lower left-hand corner. Using the Pale Papaya Ink stamp the flowers around the bird. Now stamp in Granny Apple Green Ink using the sprig of leaves.
To complete the front of the card, stamp in Fresh Freesia Ink using the small berries.
Assembling the Card
First adhere the stamped inside panel to the inside of the Pale Papaya CS card base.
Next adhere the stamped card front to the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Friendly Hello DSP.
Adhere the stamped front/DSP panel to the front of the card base. Voila! Super simple and very beautiful! Perfect for the #SimpleStamping Challenge!
I have an exciting new stamp set to give you a sneak peak of today- Honeybee Home. The 2022 January-June Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog premieres on January 4, 2022!

Demonstrator and are in need of a catalog, drop me an email with your name and address. I will send you a Catalog and a free gift! My email is email@example.com.
Now for the card!
The elements that come together to make this “Miss You” Honeybee Home card are in the Heart & Home Suite. The Heart & Home Designer Series Paper (DSP) is just gorgeous!
Honeybee Home Miss You Card
Cinnamon Cider Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches ( We will cut this to get the other Cinnamon Cider CS card pieces).
Very Vanilla CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches, 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 inches and 3/4 x 1 3/4 inches (not pictured).
Heart & Home DSP: 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches.
Cutting the Card Base
Cut 1 1/2 inches off the left side of the Cinnamon Cider CS card base. This creates the card base and a 1 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Cinnamon Cider CS piece. Cut 1 1/2 inches off the end of this piece. Now you have all of the card pieces needed.
Start out by stamping the inside of the card. Use Cinnamon Cider Ink to stamp the largest Honeybee onto the top of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Very Vanilla CS. Then stamp the group of flowers along the side.
Now stamp the flower with the stem onto the center of the 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 inch Very Vanilla CS. Next stamp the two bees in profile. Stamp close to the flowers so it looks like the bees are attending to the flowers.
To finish up the stamping, stamp the sentiment “Miss You” onto the 3/4 x 1 3/4 inch Very Vanilla CS.
Putting the Honeybee Home card together
Use the Paper Snips to cut the right side of the flower with the honeybees. Next adhere this piece to the 1 1/2 x 4 inch Cinnamon Cider CS. The cut portion of the flowers will hang over the edge of the Cinnamon Cider CS.
Adhere the stamped 4 x 5 1/4 inch Very Vanilla CS to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider CS card base.
Fold the left-hand flap forward and adhere the Heart & Home DSP to the front panel. (Sorry-forgot to make a photo!)
Adhere the “Miss You” sentiment to the left over Cinnamon Cider CS piece. Trim to about 1/4 inch on either side.
Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the flower and honeybee piece. Also apply a Stampin’ Dimensional on the back of the sentiment on the right. Apply two Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment on the left. You’ll see why you need two in a minute.
Remove the protective covering for the Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhere the flower and honeybee piece first. The edge of the Cinnamon Cider CS should line up with the right-sided edge of the front flap. Follow by adhering the sentiment. As you will see, you need two Dimensionals on the left because the right side is elevated by two.
Voila! You have lovely Honeybee Home “Miss You” card!
I loved making this card. I initially did not have any idea how it would turn out. Sometimes I just start out by cutting the card base and stamping some images. Then I start to see how I want them to come together.
It is very subtle, but you can add Bling!. I added the Champagne Rhinestone Jewels to the center of some of the flowers on the card to the right. In person, the rhinestones really sparkle!
The Honeybee Home stamp set and the Heart & Home DSP will be available to order starting January 4, 2022.

Joy to the World! Today’s card is a simple one. After creating the Layering Diorama with the Peaceful Deer yesterday, I needed an easier card!
Stars Are Shining Christmas Card
Real Red Card Stock (CS) card base: 4 1/4 x 11 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches.
Basic White CS: two at 4 x 5 1/4 inches.
Tidings of Christmas 6 x 6 inch Designer Series Paper (DSP): 3 1/2 x 4 inches.
Real Red 3/8 inch Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon: 6 1/2 inches.
Cut the Tidings of Christmas DSP into 2 triangles. Place one triangle over the top of one of the 4 x 5 1/2 inch Basic White CS. Use a pencil to draw a line at the border of the DSP. Remove the DSP and set aside for later.
Before you start stamping, figure out where you would like the ornaments to be. Place the stamps on the paper. Include the sentiment “Joy to the World” in the lower right-hand corner. Use a pencil to mark the center of the top of each ornament.
You will have three dots where the string for the ornament needs to end. Stamp the sentiment in Memento Ink. Then stamp each of the three strings for the ornaments.
Start by stamping the middle ornament. Add the other two ornaments.
On the other 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS stamp the sentiment “The Stars are Shining Brightly”. Stamp some of the stars on the side. I stamped once, then turned the stamp 180 degrees, applied more Memento Ink, and stamped a second time.
Coloring the Ornaments
I absolutely love the Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Markers but the Stampin’ Write Markers have a finer tip. Color in some of the design with the Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker. Finish up by using the Real Red marker.
Adhere the Tidings of Christmas DSP triangle to the top left corner.
Adhere the Real Red Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon to the front panel with Mini Glue Dots. Take care on the upper right-hand corner to have the ribbon to the left of the corner. Wrap the ribbon around to the back and adhere with a Mini Glue Dot. Trim the excess off of the top corner ribbon.
Adhere the ornament card piece to the front of the Real Red CS card base. Now adhere the inside panel to the inside of the card base.
Now for some Bling! Add some Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels. Add as many as you want! The more, the more sparkle!
Voila! A nice and simple but totally Bling! Stars are Shining Christmas Card! You could really have some fun with this one. Try different colors and patterns of DSP.

Thanks so much for visiting today! Have a most wonderful day! The weekend is almost here!
I did not have any stamps with gnomes or fairies. I decided to try to make a gnome with Punch Art. Punch Art used to be the art of making images using the Stampin’ Up! punches. However, right now there are not many punches in basic shapes like circles, squares and triangles. But there are many shapes in the Stampin’ Up! Dies that can be used!
The face and the boots are made from the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch. The black lines are where I cut the punch. The little pompom for the gnome hat is from the Pierced Blooms Dies. The remaining pieces are different sizes of triangles from the Stitched Triangle Dies. The face is Blushing Bride Card Stock (CS). For the hat I used the Tidings of Christmas 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper (DSP). The boots are made with Early Espresso CS and the body is made with Soft Succulent CS. The beard and the pompom are in Basic White CS.
First place the triangle for the body on the card front to be able to position the boots. After adhering the boots, use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the body. Trim off the very tip of the triangle for the body.
