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!

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!

Measurements

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.

Stamping

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.

Stampin’ Dimensionals

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!

Supply List

The Honeybee Home stamp set and the Heart & Home DSP will be available to order starting January 4, 2022.
