Stampin’ Up!® Sweets & Treats Cloche Dome Card

Happy Thanksgiving!

Today I plan to spend some time reflecting on all I have to be grateful for. An “attitude of gratitude” really keeps me from feeling down during the holidays. I am very blessed to be able to spend Thanksgiving with family this year. We missed last year, so I feel especially grateful to be visiting this year.

I have a very fun 3D card for you today:

Doesn’t that apple pie look delicious? I actually prefer pumpkin pie, but the apple pie is a close second. Which pie do you like best? Please leave me a comment below.

Measurements

  • Cinnamon Cider Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches
  • Cinnamon Cider CS: 3 3/8 x 4 5/8 inches
  • Basic White CS: 3 3/4 x 3 1/2 inches and a scalloped rectangle from the Scalloped Contour Dies
  • Hand Penned 12 x 12 inch Designer Series Paper (DSP): 3 3/4 x 3 3/4

The Fun Fold Card Base

The card base is made by cutting 3/4 inch off of the top and bottom of the front panel. Emboss the back panel with the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. Set aside.

Trivia: Anyone know what a cloche (Klōsh) is? I didn’t. One definition of cloche from French, literally “bell”, is a transparent cover shaped like a bell.

Stamping & Coloring The Pie Pan

Use the Cloche Dies to cut the shape of the dome from the Scalloped Contour Die rectangle. Take care to position the die so that it is about 1/4 inch down from the top and that it is centered. Tip: I use sticky note tape to hold my dies in position while putting them through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Save the cut out piece. Stamp the pie stand in Memento Black Ink. Use Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers in Smoky Slate to color the stand. Tip: I color in the “shadows” first with the Dark Smoky Slate Blend.

Then use the Light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blend marker to blend the border of the dark into the light. Keep moving from the edges to the center until it is all colored in.

Stamping & Coloring the Pie

Now stamp the pie onto the cut out piece of the dome. Color the pie pan with Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends. Start with the Dark Cinnamon Cider Blend on the edges. Use the Ivory Stampin’ Blend to color the pie crust. Since there is only one shade of the Ivory, you can make a shadow on the edges by coloring the first layer as shown.

For the pie pan, blend with the Light Cinnamon Cider marker from both edges until you reach the middle of the pie pan. Note: I used a wee bit of the Light Cinnamon Cider Blend on the pie crust. To finish the crust I used the Ivory Blend to smooth out the darker edges until I covered the entire crust. I used the Light Real Red Stampin’ Blend for the holes in the pie crust since I am making an apple pie.

Stamping the Inside

Orient the 3 3/4 x 3 1/2 inch Basic White CS card piece with the 3 1/2 inch edge on either side. Using the Memento ink, stamp the “love ya” sentiment in the center. Add the heart in Blushing Bride ink.

Assembling the Card

Adhere the inside Basic White CS panel to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider CS card base so that it is hidden when you close the front panel. Adhere the Hand Penned DSP to the front panel. Set aside.

Do Not Adhere, but just place the complete Scalloped Contour rectangle with the pie dome on the 3 3/8 x 4 5/8 inch Cinnamon Cider CS. Adhere the pie dome without getting adhesive on the Scalloped Contour piece. Remove the Scalloped Contour rectangle. Draw some steam over the pie with the Black Stampin’ Write Marker. Yummy!

Assembling the Shaker Cloche Dome

Place about 1/2 tsp of the gold and orange Sequins for Everything on the center of the dome cut out. Remove the strip covering the adhesive on the bottom of the Cloche Shaker Dome.

Carefully line up the inside edge of the shaker dome with the dome on the Cinnamon Cider CS. Push firmly around the edge of the dome. Once adhered, remove the strip covering the adhesive on the top of the Cloche Shaker Dome.

Apply adhesive to the back of the Scalloped Contour rectangle. Place it carefully over the dome and push down to make it stick. Now the sequins can move around inside the dome! Fun!

Finishing the Card

Adhere the shaker dome card piece to the front panel of the card base. Take care not to apply adhesive to the very top and bottom. Include a sentiment if desired. I really like the sentiment “any way you slice it, I’m thankful for you”.

Voila! Such a yummy looking Sweets & Treats Cloche Shaker card! Also a great Thanksgiving card to share your gratitude with a loved one.

Fun Fold Friday with Butterfly Brilliance by Stampin’ Up!®

Welcome to Theresa’s Treasures today for Fun Fold Friday. Today’s card is made using the Butterfly Brilliance by Stampin’ Up!® as well as the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper (DSP). The Butterfly Brilliance stamp set is part of the Butterfly Bouquet Suite that will be available for purchase on March 2, 2021. Or if you want yours now, consider joining my Theresa’s Gems Team. More information on the Butterfly Bouquet Suite and how to join at the end of the instructions.

The Fun Fold is the centerpiece for this lovely card. It is super simple!

Measurements

Measurements: Basic White Card Stock (CS) card base: 4 1/4 x 11 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches; Bumblebee CS: 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 inches and 4 x 5 1/2 inches; Basic White CS: 3 3/4 x 5 inches; and Flowers for Every Season DSP: 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches.

Stamping

First we will start by stamping the sentiment “Thinking of You” from the Happy Thoughts stamp set in Memento ink onto the 3 3/4 x 5 inch Basic White CS.

You will also be stamping the Butterfly Brilliance stamp in Memento ink onto a piece of Basic White CS and then coloring the smaller butterflies with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. The colors I used were: Daffodil Delight, So Saffron, Mango Melody and Pumpkin Pie.

Creating the Fun Fold

You will need your Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer for this step. First make a pencil mark at 2 1/8 inches on each side of the 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 inch Flowers for Every Season DSP.

The next step is to line up the pencil marks so that you can make a score line between them. Rotate until you have score lines on each corner.

The Flowers for Every Season card piece should look like this after you have made all the score lines. Erase the pencil marks.

Next you line up the score line at 3/4 inches and make another score line. Rotate until you have made a second score line all the way around. The end result is pictured on the right.

Now use your Bone Folder to make a crisp fold along all of the outer score lines.

In a similar fashion, fold the inner score lines outward and use the Bone Folder to make a crisp fold. Next, adhere the Fun Fold card piece to the 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 inch Bumblebee CS.

Putting It All Together

Begin to assemble the parts by adhering the Fun Fold card piece to the sentiment card piece. Then adhere that to the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Bumblebee CS.

To complete the card front, use your Bone Folder to make a crisp fold at the 5 1/2 inch score line on the 4 1/4 x 11 inch Basic White CS card base. Next adhere the completed card piece to the front of the Basic White CS card base.

Finishing Up

In order to give the butterflies a little more dimension, I used my Bone Folder to gently curve the wings of each butterfly.

Add the butterflies to the card front with a Stampin’ Dimensional in the center behind the body of the butterfly.

I wanted my Fun Fold to lie a bit more flat so I added a Mini Glue Dot under the first fold. Tip: It is very easy to move the Mini Glue Dot with the Take Your Pick tool.

Viola! You have made a lovely Fun Fold to let someone know you are thinking of them. I really enjoy making cards. And I enjoy it even more when I mail the card out to someone. Additionally, I enjoy the positive feedback I get from the recipient. Mailing cards is a really great way to spread some joy!

Thank you for coming by today for Fun Fold Friday. I hope you will spend some time making your own card and spreading some joy yourself. We could all use a little more joy!
