Friday Fun Fold Stampin’ Up!® Tulip Fields

“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 is an Inspirational Fun Fold card using Stampin' Up Tulip Fields stamp set and Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper.
Fun Fold Stampin’ Up!® Tulip Fields

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

Stamping

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.

Bling!

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!

This beautiful handmade inspirational fun fold card is simple to make using Stampin' Up! products including the Tulip Fields stamp set and Flowering Fields Designer Series paper.

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.

Stampin’ Up!® Woodland Wonder Fun Fold for Friday

Welcome to the Stampin’ Up!® Woodland Wonder Fun Fold for Friday! This is an adorable and fun card to wish Happy Birthday to someone young at heart. The Stampin’ Up!® Woodland Wonder stamp set is found in the 2021 January to June Mini Catalog on page 53. You can buy one for yourself right HERE.

This cute Fun Fold opens up to reveal a tall tree with a family of animals ready to say “Hip-Hip-Hoo-Ray!”

Measurements

Measurements: One piece of 4 1/4 x 11 inch Basic White Card Stock (CS) with score lines at 2, 3 3/4, 7 1/4 and 9 inches.

Folding the Fun Fold

Fold the Basic White CS card base as shown.

Stamping

The first step is to stamp the bottom of the tree in Memento ink so that the top of the stamp abuts the 9 inch score line and is in the center.

Fold the card closed and use a pencil to mark where the borders of the tree trunk are. This is to help guide you where to stamp the top of the tree so that when the Fun Fold is closed the tree trunks are aligned.

The next step is to fold the card part way and make a pencil mark at the border of the tree trunk. Use these pencil marks when you stamp the large image of the tree trunk with all the animals to help keep the trunk aligned. There will be some space between the top of the trunk with the animals and the tree top trunk.

Masking

Masking. To be able to fill in the tree trunk you will need a sticky note to cover the grass on the tree trunk bottom. Use the Memento ink upside down to ink up the trunk. Then remove the sticky note before you stamp.

More Stamping

You will need to stamp the masked bottom trunk twice to fill in the space.

Use your Stampin’ Write Marker in Basic Black to fill in the spaces between the stamped trunks. Mine is a tad bit off, but little “errors” like that is what makes this card a homemade card!

Continue to use the Memento ink to stamp the pole as if the squirrel were holding it. Add the “HIP-HIP-HOO-RAY!” banner.

To finish up, stamp the sentiments “happy birthday” and “from all of us” onto the bottom of the card.

Let the Memento ink dry well. Use your bone folder to make the folds nice a crisp. This is what the front should look like when the card is closed.

Coloring

I used the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers to color the tree and animals. The colors I used were: Granny Apply Green, Cinnamon Cider, Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Mango Melody, Gray Granite, Flirty Flamingo, Balmy Blue, Real Red, Smoky Slate and Daffodil Delight.

This is what it looks like on the front after coloring.

In order to keep the card closed until that special someone opens it, I used a 16-inch piece of the Bumblebee In Color Ribbon. The ribbon is adhered to the back of the card with a glue dot.

Viola! Now you have an adorable Fun Fold to wish someone a very Happy Birthday!

Confession: I had to stamp this card several times before getting it right. Several times I dropped the stamp on the card and once I forgot to remove the stick-not mask before stamping. Point is-don’t give up, keep trying and you will have a really cool card!

Thank you very much for viewing my blog today!

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!

Happy Thoughts & Daisy Punch for Fun Fold Friday

The Happy Thoughts stamp set and Daisy Punch combined with some of the FREE Designer Series Paper from Sale-a-bration are what come together to make this pretty floral Fun Fold card. You can find the Happy Thoughts stamp set in the 2021 January-June Stampin’ Up!® Mini Catalog. The Daisy Punch and Medium Daisy Punch can be found in the 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. If you order all three, you will qualify for a FREE product from the Sale-a-bration Brochure- the Paper Blooms 12 x 12 inch DSP!

There are a lot of pieces to this particular Fun-Fold card. Not to worry-the easy to follow photographic instructions will help you create this card in no time.

Measurements

Measurements: Rococo Rose Card Stock (CS) card base #1: 4 1/4 x 11 inches scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2 inches; Rococo Rose CS card base #2: 2 3/4 x 10 inches scored at 4 3/4 and 7 1/2 inches; Basic White CS: 2 1/4 x 2 1/2 inches; Paper Blooms DSP: 2 1/2 x 4 inches, 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches and 4 x 5 1/4 inches; Punched out pieces: Daisy Punch: Rococo Rose CS and Petal Pink CS; Medium Daisy Punch: Night of Navy CS; Perennial Flower: Night of Navy CS and the 2 1/4 inch Circle Punch: Basic White CS. You will also need about 12 inches of the White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.

Stamping

Begin by stamping the sentiment “Thinking OF You” in Night Of Navy ink onto the 2 1/4 x 2 1/2 inch Basic White CS. The 2 1/4 inch length should be on the top and bottom.

Putting It Together

Start by putting together the Rococo Rose CS card base #2. First adhere the 2 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch Paper Blooms DSP to the first panel on the left. Then adhere the sentiment to the last panel on the right. Set aside.

The next step will be to work with Rococo Rose CS card base #1. Begin by adhering the 2 1/2 x 4 inch Paper Blooms DSP to the first panel on the left. Next adhere the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Paper Blooms DSP to the last panel on the right.

In order to see how this will go together, hold the two card bases as shown in the first photo. Start by adhering the left side of the top card base to the card base underneath.

This is how it will look with the card closed. Right now only the left side of the top card base is adhered.

For the next step, open the card, turn the card upside down and rotate it 180 degrees. You will be applying adhesive to the back of the right side of the top card base. The close the card and adhere the two together. In this way, the card will lay flat for mailing.

Here is the aerial view of the card when it has been adhered.

Decorating the Card Front

Begin to put the front of the card together by using Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the 2 1/4 inch Basic White CS circle to the left side of the front. Tie the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon around the right side of the top card base. Trim the ends of the ribbon.

In order to give a little dimension to the daisies, use the Bone Folder to gently curve the petals back. Be careful when doing this as I have often torn the petal straight off!

Now cut the Perennial Flower Punch as shown to make some “leaves” for the front of the card.

Start with a Stampin’ Dimensional on the center of the Petal Pink Daisy Punch and adhere it to the center of the Basic White CS Circle Punch. Then use adhesive in the center of the Rococo Rose Daisy Punch and adhere it to the Petal Pink Daisy.

Now use adhesive to adhere the Night Of Navy Daisy Punch and add the “leaves”. I find it easier to place the leaves by using a tweezers.

And now for a little Bling! I just added three Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the center of the daisy. Later I realized I could have also used the Wink of Stella on the daisy to make it even more sparkly!

Viola! You have a pretty floral Fun Fold to let someone special know you’ve been thinking of them.

Stampin’ Up!® Happy Birthday with Happy Thoughts Friday Fun Fold

Hello! I have a wonderful Happy Birthday with Happy Thoughts card for you today for your Friday Fun Fold. The Happy Thoughts stamp set is a great beginner set that is in the 2021 January-June Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog. There is a sentiment to put on the front of the card and a longer sentiment for the inside of the card to include: Happy Birthday, Thank You, Congratulations, and Thinking of You. A very versatile stamp set!

The gorgeous Designer Series Paper (DSP) is part of the Fine Art Floral Suite and is called-you guessed it- Fine Art Floral DSP. The little ladybug embellishments are from the Dandy Garden Suite, which I will talk more about later. This lovely handmade birthday card is fairly easy to make, so let’s get started!

Measurements

Measurements: Mossy Meadow Card Stock (CS) card base: 4 1/4 x 8 inches with a score line at 2 1/2 inches; Whisper White CS: 2 3/8 x 4 inches and 2 1/2 x 4 inches (for the oval die cut); Mossy Meadow CS: 2 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with a score line at 1/2 inch and 2 3/4 x 4 inches (for the oval die cut); and the Fine Art Floral DSP: 4 x 5 1/4 inches and 2 1/4 x 4 inches.

Stamping

I used the Stitched Shapes Dies to cut out the 2 stitched ovals, one from the 2 1/2 x 4 inch Whisper White CS and one from the 2 3/4 x 4 inch Mossy Meadow CS. Next, stamp the sentiment “Happy Birthday” in Mossy Meadow ink onto the Whisper White CS stitched oval. Follow with stamping the inside sentiment in the Mossy Meadow ink onto the 2 3/8 x 4 inch Whisper White CS.

Preparing the Card Base

On the opposite end to the scored end, cut a banner edge. The first cut should be in the center. The second cut is from one corner to the top of the center cut. The third cut is from the other corner to the top of the center cut. Viola! A perfect banner edge every time!

Lay the Mossy Meadow CS card base on the table with the short end on the left. Position the card piece you just cut a banner edge on with the 1/2 inch score line along the right-hand edge of the Fine Art Floral DSP. That will be on the inside of the card base. The Fine Art Floral DSP is just laid down for positioning. Do not adhere the DSP yet. Adhere the 1/2 inch portion of the banner-edged card piece to the inside of the Mossy Meadow CS card base.

Now you may adhere the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Fine Art Floral DSP to the inside of the Mossy Meadow CS card base. Follow by adhering the 2 1/4 x 4 inch piece of Fine Art Floral DSP to the card front. Note: These 2 designs are opposite sides of the same piece of DSP.

Adding the Sentiments
