What I learned from this Friday Fun Fold Pop Up Box Birthday Card

Hello my stamping friends! I hope all has been well with you this week. Today I have a Friday Fun Fold Pop Up Box Birthday Card for you. I learned this fold from Rachel Tessman who made it as a Paper Pumpkin alternative. You can see her card HERE. The first go around I made several mistakes. There will be tips for you so that you will be able to avoid the same mistakes I made.

The New Horizons Designer Series Paper (DSP) is so awesome, I am in love with it! This paper is super great for scenic watercolor backgrounds. I will be using the New Horizons DSP for today’s card along with the Sailing Home stamp set.

This is a photo of the second Friday Fun Fold Pop Up Box Birthday Card card I made. I will give you tips so that your first card comes out right.

Measurements

Friday Fun Fold Pop Up Box Birthday Card

Misty Moonlight Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches.

New Horizons Designer Series Paper (DSP): The scene will be portrait orientation. Cut the 6 x 6 inch scene at 4 1/4 inches first. Then cut the resulting strip to be 1 5/8 x 5 1/2 inches. Cut the scene to be 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches. You will need to use 2 sheets to get both scenes. One scene for the front and one for the back of the card.

Basic White CS: 2 1/2 x 1 inch (for sentiment) and 2 x 4 inch to stamp the larger sailboats on.

Night of Navy CS: 2 3/4 x 1 inch (for sentiment)

Ink: Night of Navy

Scoring the Card Base

Score at 1/2, 2 1/8, 2 5/8, 4 1/4, 5 7/8, 6 7/8 and 8 inches.

Preparing the Card Base

First Tip: Do not burnish the score lines until after you make the slot. Make the slot as thin as you can. The slot on the left is too wide. This made the finished card unstable. Use the Stampin’ Up! Trimmer to get a thin slot. Set the left edge of the card base at 4 5/16 inches and make a cut from 1 1/8 to 4 3/8 inches. Then turn the card base 180° and cut again. Use your paper snips to cut the extra piece off to make the slot.

Second Tip: Adhere the 1 5/8 x 5 1/2 inch strips of the New Horizons DSP close to the 4 1/4 inch score line, but do not cover the score line. The card should be easy to fold.

Stamping

Stamp the large sailboat twice in Night of Navy Ink onto a scrap of Basic White CS. Use a scrap of the News Horizons to stamp the small sailboat twice. You may fussy cut the sailboats or use the Smooth Sailing Dies.

Stamp the desired sentiment onto the 1 x 2 1/2 inch Basic White CS with Night of Navy Ink. I used the “Happy Birthday” from the Celebrating You stamp set.

Assembling the Fun Fold

One difference between my card and Rachel’s is that I wanted an image on both the front and the back of the card. That way there is something to look at forward and backward. Adhere the top of the two sailboat scenes together. Apply a Tear-n-Tape strip to the bottom of the back one.

Insert the sailboat scene through the slot in the card base. Align the bottom of the sailboat scene with the 1/2 inch score line. Take the protective layer off of the Tear-n-Tape on the scene. Fold the base at the 1/2 inch score line so that it sticks to the sail boat scene. Apply a strip of the Tear-n-Tape to the Misty Moonlight bottom.

Peel the protective layer off of the Tear-n-Tape. Adhere the two sailboat scene pieces together. Press down. Apply more Tear-n-Tape over the bottom of the sail boat scene. Remove the protective covering.

Fold the card base at the 4 1/4 inch score line to adhere the sides together.

Here is how the Pop Up Box looks from the side and all the way folded down. Cool right?!

Decorating the Pop Up Box

Tip: The first go around I put the small sailboat on the left and the sentiment on the right. The second time I was able to add the larger sailboat if I put the small sailboat to the right. Note: I forgot to stamp the birds on the sail boat scene for the first card. I really like the scene much better with the birds added.

On the backside, I placed the small sailboat on the left and the larger sailboat on the right as shown.

Be sure to adhere the sail boats and sentiment to the small strip under the DSP piece so that they pop up!

Finished Product

Here are the forward and backward views of the first card.

Here are the forward and backward views of the second card.

Voila! I hope you are successful with this. I really felt a sense of accomplishment after figuring this Fun Fold Pop Up Box Birthday card out.

Measurements

Stamping

First stamp the birds from the On the Horizons stamp set in Polished Pink Ink. Follow by stamping the trees. Stamp Off once for the trees on the left. Use Evening Evergreen Ink for the sentiment “Thanks for Everything”.

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.

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.

Stamping

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!

Stampin’ Up!® Sneak Peak- Honeybee Home

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! There are so many great stamp sets, Designer Series Papers, Dies and Embossing Folders in this catalog! If you would like me to be your Stampin’ Up! 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 theresastreasures.az@gmail.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!

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.

Product List

Have a wonderful day! I hope you take some time to craft. This is the best time of year to make cards and papercrafts because you can give them away as Holiday gifts!

Ciao!

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!

Measurements

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.

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.
