Painted Autumn Fun Fold for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #16

Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn! Autumn officially begins tomorrow and I have an easy fun fold card to share with you as we welcome a new season.  Here is my Autumn card for this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge.

Stampin Up Painted Autumn Fall/Thanksgiving fun fold card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s this week’s challenge board.


I chose elements going across the top row: metallic, glow, and autumn colors. I tried to get a photo so you could see the “glow”. I used a battery tea light in the back which shines through the vellum. You could easily place this near a light and get the same effect.

This fun fold card measures 4 1/4 x 8 and is scored at 1 1/4, 2 1/2, 5 1/2, 6 3/4.  I love the mix of fall colors in the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.

Coordinating colors: Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Garden Green, Lemon Lime Twist, Peekaboo Peach, Soft Sky, Tangerine Tango, Very Vanilla

The DSP strips on each side measure 1 x 4 and the center piece measures 2 3/4 x 4.  I adhered the DSP to the cardstock then used the Seasonal Layers Thinlits to cut the leaf out through both layers. I sponged a piece of vellum using Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, and Lemon Lime Twist inks.  I adhered the vellum to the back of the card using glue dots.  (You can see in the photo above how I framed the back of the vellum using the Layering Squares Framelits to give it  finished look.)

I am thrilled Stampin’ Up brought back the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets! What a difference it makes in adhering the detailed dies.  I adhered a piece of Copper Metallic Foil to the Multipurpose Adhesive before cutting it with out with the detailed leaf die. It was so easy to just peel the backing and adhere to the vellum inside the framelit. If you haven’t tried the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets you need to put them on your next order…they are a must have for anyone who has dies!


I stamped the sentiment from the Painted Harvest Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on Very Vanilla cardstock. I flagged the end and added a small banner in copper foil. I wrapped the Copper Trim and tied a bow on the end. The banner is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

P is for Pop Up Fun Fold

Welcome to my ABC’s with Fun Folds series. Today’s card is one I have made several times.  I love this Pop-Up fun fold!

I used the Affectionately Your Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card base.  This piece is a thick cardstock with copper embossing.  Oh how I love it! It is retiring tomorrow so if I were you I would stock up now…it’s even on sale!!! Click HERE to add this to your shopping cart.

To make the pop up card you need a piece of cardstock measuring 4 1/4 x 11. Score at 1, 2 3/4, 3 3/4, 5 1/2, 7 1/4, 8 1/4, 10. Line it up in the personal trimmer in the center (at the 5 1/2 inch score line) and trim from 3/4 inches – 3 1/2 inches. The arrow on the cutting blade makes  it easy to see where to cut.

Next, fold the cardstock along the center cut line and trim the opening with paper snips for a clean cut along the score line.  Then fold along all score lines. Apply Tear & Tape Adhesive along the top and bottom of the card base.


I heat embossed the sentiment from Big on Birthdays on a piece of 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 Night of Navy cardstock using Copper Embossing Powder. I layered the sentiment on Flirty Flamingo cardstock that’s just 1/4″ larger (2 3/4 x 5 1/2). Notice how I stamped higher on the cardstock to make sure it would show when the card is sitting in the base.  I used the Star Blast Edgelits Dies (also retiring) to cut the design from Copper Foil.  I adhered it with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.


The card slides up and down through the slot.  It’s so cool how it folds flat for mailing and is free standing once it is opened.  I wrapped some of the new Copper Trim around the card and tied a bow. I punched the flower from Flirty Flamingo cardstock using the Pansy Punch and stamped the center with VersaMark using the Love & Affection Stamp Set and heat embossed it before adhering it to the card front. I adhered a piece of 2 1.4 x 6″ piece of DSP to the envelope and trimmed the excess.

Here are some other Pop-Up cards I made previously using the Gift of Love Stamp Set (retiring May 31). You can click on the image to see the original post with lots photos.
