Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello Birthday Card

Good Morning! Today I’m bringing you a Double Easel fun fold card made with the Sale-A-Bration Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello bundle This is a beautiful set of coordinating stamps and designer series paper that you can get for FREE with a $100 purchase during Sale-A-Bration! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello designer series paper panels to each scored section of the Basic Black panel, burnished the score lines, and adhered the folded Basic Black panel to the front of the Fresh Freesia card base. I cut a panel of the DSP with the second largest Scalloped Contours die and adhered it to the card front.

I traced the outline of the die from one of the Tasteful Labels dies on a Basic Black panel and fussy cut it out with my paper snips. I used the die to cut a panel of the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello DSP with the bird and flowers, and adhered it to the fussy cut Basic Black mat. I stamped the bird image from the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Pool Party, Fresh Freesia and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends. I fussy cut the bird and flowers and adhered them to the die cut with dimensionals. I adhered the die cut to the card front with Tear & Tape and finished the flowers with Pale Papaya rhinestones.

I stamped the double flower from the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Basic White. I colored the flowers with Fresh Freesia and Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the leaves in Granny Apple Green and fussy cut the leaves and flowers. I adhered the flowers and leaves to the scalloped rectangle die cut panel with liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Sale-A-Bration Special Moments photopolymer stamp set in Basic Black on Fresh Freesia and cut it out with the Ornate Labels die. I adhered it to the card front and finished the card with a glittered Black Organdy bow.

I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on a Basic White panel. I stamped the large flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello stamp set in the corners in Basic Black and the leaves in Granny Apple Green. I colored the flowers with Fresh Freesia and Pale Papaya Stampin Blends and adhered the panel to the inside of the card. I also stamped a Basic White envelope with the flowers and leaves and colored it with Stampin’ Blends to match the inside panel.

The Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello bundle is a wonderful Sale-A-Bration item that you can get for free with a $100 order. The designer series paper is so beautiful and the stamp set has pretty images and sentiments that can be used with it or on their own. But hurry, because Sale-A-Bration ends on February 28, 2022!

Stampin’ Up! Hello Ladybug Video Tutorial

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Hello Ladybug bundle is so adorable. With the bold, graphic ladybug stamps and coordinating Ladybug Builder Punch, it is so easy to make a bunch of cute little bugs to decorate cards and tags. I made this cute little fun fold card during my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the video of my Facebook Live from yesterday afternoon. I also posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel and you can view it here if you prefer.

I a panel of pretty multicolor Flowering Fields designer series paper to a So Saffron panel. I adhered another Mango Melody Flowering Fields Panel to the front of my mini card. I adhered my mini card to the DSP panel with Tear & Tape adhesive. I stamped the leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Ladybug photopolymer stamp set in Pear Pizzazz on Basic White and fussy cut it with a small white border. I adhered the leaf to the mini card front with liquid glue.

I stamped the large flower from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Ladybug stamp set three times in Highland Heather ink and cut them out with the Medium Daisy Punch. I curved the petals and adhered the clusters together with liquid glue and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals, finishing the center with an iridescent rhinestone. I stamped two ladybug wings with Poppy Parade ink on Basic White and punched them out with the Ladybug Builder Punch. I punched out two ladybug bodies from Pattern Party DSP and Basic Black card stock. I inked the edges of the Pattern Party bodies with my black Stamp & Write marker and adhered them to the Basic Black cardstock bodies. I adhered the wings with liquid glue and adhered Black Matte Dots to the wing spots.

I adhered the ladybugs to the card front with dimensionals, letting them hang over the sides of the mini card. I stamped the hello sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Ladybug stamp set in Poppy Parade on Basic White and trimmed it with my paper snips. I adhered the label to the card front on top of the leaf.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Ladybug stamp set in Poppy Parade on a basic White panel. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of the Flowering Fields DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Hello Ladybug bundle is the cutest! You can punch out the ladybug from colored card stock, stamped card stock and designer series paper for a wide range of styles. The bold stamps compliment the punched bugs and the sentiments are perfect for expressions of friendship, support and good wishes.

Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today card, I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants bundle to make a Love You card. Do you have indoor plants? I used to have lots of them, but I’ve lost my green thumb these days. It’s sad because they really brighten things up on dreary winter days. I’ll have to look into this again. But anyway, you can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a special challenge this week – we’re all making fun fold cards! My fun fold is an accordion card inspired by Cindy Brumbaugh at CindyLeeBee Designs.

I adhered panels of Bloom Where You’re Planted designer series paper to each of the scored panels of the Just Jade card base. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants photopolymer stamp set in Evening Evergreen in the top corner of the brick design Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP and adhered it to the right side of the scored Cinnamon Cider mini card. I stamped the leaf spray in Just Jade on the top corner of the wood panelling design Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP and adhered it to the right side of the Cinnamon Cider mini card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink in the top corner of a Basic White panel and stamped the other top corner with a vine in Garden Green ink. I adhered the panel to a Just Jade mat and adhered it to the inside of the card. I adhered strips of Tear & Tape to the edges of the Cinnamon Cider mini card and pulled off the covers and adhered it to the first inside fold by lining it up with the inside panel. I closed the folds and pulled the covers off the Tear & Tape and folded the Cinnamon Cider mini card over the front flap to adhere it.

I stamped the 5 leaf cluster from the Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants stamp set in Garden Green on Basic White and cut it out with the coordinating die. I stamped the large pot in Cajun Craze and fussy cut it with my paper snips. I cut a panel of Sahara Sand with the hanging basket die and adhered the plant and pot to the basket with liquid glue. I adhered the basket to the card front with liquid glue. I cut a Cinnamon Cider panel with the vase die and adhered it with liquid glue. I cut an Evening Evergreen panel with the leafy die and adhered it on top of the pot with liquid glue. I finished the front with 3 metallic butterflies from the upcoming Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog (available Jan 4, 2022).

I stamped the 3 leaf plant in Garden Green on Basic White and cut it out with the coordinating die. I stamped the planter in Cinnamon cider and cut it out with the coordinating die. I adhered the plant to the back of the planter and adhered them both to the inside flap of the card. I adhered a die cut Sahara Sand vase next to the plant

I adhered some more empty Sahara Sand die cut vases to the bottom of the inside panel under the Basic White panel, so that they kind of peek out when the card is folded closed.

This fun fold is 1/4″ narrower than a standard A2 card, but it still fits in a standard envelope, with plenty of room for the accordion fold and card front embellishments. And it was so much fun using the different patterns in the Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP and the Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants bundle to make a verdant card to inspire winter indoor gardens!
