Fun Fold Card with Painted Poppies

Forever Lovely Stamp Set

 

Today’s card is a fun fold that features the Painted Poppies stamp set and the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  If you’d like to give it a try, I have a video showing how to make it!

I used Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends to color the poppies and the flower inside the card but first I stamped the images using Memento Ink.  When using alcohol based pens such as Stampin’ Blends, the type of ink you use is important.  Because Memento Ink is a water-based dye ink, it’s perfect for use with Stampin’ Blends.

 

 

All the supplies I used can be found below in the supply list.

The base of my card is Pool Party cardstock with a layer of Whisper White cardstock that was embossed using the Eyelet Lace embossing folder. The two banners were created using our Banner Triple Punch which will cut three different widths of paper:  2″, 1-1/2″ and 1″.

The sentiment is from the stamp set, Here’s a Card, and was stamped onto Whisper White cardstock using Memento Ink. It was cut out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. To complete the card, I added three rhinestones using our Holiday Rhinestones.

If you’d like to recreate today’s card, all the measurements I used can be found below the Supply List.

Stampin’ Up! Pleased as Punch

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Friendship

 

Note from Tracy:  Creating cards is a wonderful way to relieve stress and we’re all under so much of that right now.  I’m spending time in my craft room creating cards to share with you and it’s my hope that you’ll be inspired to start creating. Brighten someone’s day by sending them your beautiful card! Take Care, my friends. 

The card I’m sharing with you today was made using Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper.  This paper was released in early February to coordinate with Sale-a-Bration and Mini catalog products but will only be available until March 31, 2020 or while supplies last.  These are the products it coordinates with: 

 

Pleased as Punch DSP

 

The base of my card is Blushing Bride, not a color I use very often and I’m wondering why.  It’s really pretty! I added an embossed layer of Blushing Bride using the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder. The banner was cut using using the Banner Triple Punch. You can make banners with this punch in three widths – 1″, 1-1/2″, and 2″  but here’s a little trick: when choosing the 2″ width, trim your paper about a sixteenth of an inch so it will slide into the punch easily. 

 

Pleased as Punch DSP

 

Using the Leaf Punch, I punched out two leaves in Vellum cardstock. The sentiment was stamped in Memento Ink onto Whisper White paper using the stamp set Beautiful Friendship and cut out with the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and also secured the leaves with the dimensionals.  I completed the card by adding three Glitter Enamel Dots, in Granny Apple Green.  You can find the measurements I used below the Supply List.  Stay safe and healthy!

Stampin’ Up! Small Bloom Punch

Stitched Shapes Dies

I hope this card brightens your day! 

To create today’s card, I used Pineapple Punch cardstock, one of our five 2018-2020 In Colors.  Each year five new colors are introduced and five are retired so Pineapple Punch will be gone in a few months.

I used the Stitched Shapes Dies to create all the squares and to cut out the sentiment. The flowers were cut out using the Small Bloom Punch, a FREE Sale-a-Bration gift with a $100 purchase and available while supplies last. Each flower was attached to the stitched square using a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional and a Gold Faceted Gem was added to the center of each one for some sparkle! 

 

Stitched Shapes Dies Stampin Up

 

 

The sentiment is from the stamp set Under My Umbrella and was stamped with Memento ink. To give a little more dimension to the care, it was popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. With the help of the dies and punch, this card came together very quickly! 

Bundle Alert:  The Under My Umbrella Bundle includes the stamp set Under My Umbrella and the Umbrella Builder Punch.  You can purchase these items separately but when you use the special bundle item #153786, you’ll save 10%!

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Foils

Seriously the Best stamp set

Today’s card features Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I used Soft Sea Foam ink and a Sponge Dauber to add color to this very versatile paper.  I actually used two FREE Sale-a-Bration gifts to create my card:

With every $50 purchase (before tax and shipping) you can choose either of these papers as your Sale-a-Bration gift.  There’s no limit to how many gift you can earn! These products are available until March 31, 2020 or while supplies last

Heat Embossing Stampin Up

I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to cut out both sentiment and the So Very Vellum Designer Series Paper.  These dies are currently on the Low Inventory List so if you love them, I’d recommend purchasing them quickly.  It’s possible that once they go into backorder status, it will take some time to get them back in stock. 

Stitched So Sweetly Dies

The sentiment is from the stamp set, Seriously the Best, and was heat embossed using Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  If you haven’t tried embossing, now is the time! 

How to Heat Emboss

Rub an Embossing Buddy over the surface of your cardstock (this helps keep away stray particles of embossing powder).  Stamp your sentiment or image using a Versamark pad. This is very sticky ink and your embossing powder will stick right to it.  Sprinkle embossing powder over the stamped image.  Shake off any excess.  Before applying heat to your paper, heat the Heat Tool for about 10 seconds to minimize warping of your paper. Direct the heat over your image and watch the magic happen!

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Foils

Flowering Foils Stampin Up

 

To create today’s card I used Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper, a free Sale-a-Bration gift when you place a $50 order (before shipping/tax). You’ll receive (12)  12″ x 12″ sheets of these rose gold and silver foil designs.  This paper is only available until March 31, 2020 or while supplies last

 

 

I also used the stamp set, Seriously the Best, and embossed the sentiment with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I love the boldness of the sentiments in this set and when they’re embossed, a beautiful focal point is created. 

Seriously the Best

 

 

The beauty of this Designer Series Paper is that you can easily add any Stampin’ Up! color to the white areas.  I used Lovely Lipstick ink and applied it with a Sponge Dauber.  It’s a good idea to take a tissue or a soft cloth and rub it over the surface of the paper after applying color to pick up any ink that’s sitting on top of the raised foil.
