A Fun Fold Farewell to the Retiring In Colors

Stampin' Up! Stitched Labels Dies and 2018-2020 In Color fun fold card ideas for friend, get well, thank you, birthday, and more - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I couldn’t resist one last nod to the 2018-2020 retiring In Colors.  I love the bold colors and will miss Blueberry Bushel and Lovely Lipstick the most. This is one of the cards that was included in my Just Stampin’ Card Kit To Go for May. I always include at least one fun fold card in each monthly kit.  I made 5 different versions to show the versatility of my card kits.  I create them so that you can use any stamp set you already have to add a sentiment.  All you have to do it stamp and adhere! Everything you need to create is already cut, scored, and ready to assemble. Plus you can refer to the tutorials to create more on your own!

This fun fold design can be used vertically or horizontally.  There’s so many possibilities for adding the flower depending on whatever sentiment you use.  Here’s a close up look at each card.

Which color will you miss the most? Make sure you have ink refills, and your favorite color cardstock so you can keep creating with these bright colors!

I have shared in the past that I sell my cards at a local shop to benefit our local chapter for Breast Cancer Awareness.  I sell my cards for $4 each and donate $1 for each card I sell. If you would like to purchase one of these cards I will include the tutorial as a bonus.

Positive Thoughts

With everything that’s going on with the Coronavirus right now we can all use some positive thoughts. That’s exactly what you get in the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set.

I love this stamp set and it couldn’t be more appropriate right now! Use the images and phrases in these stamps to create a bouquet of affirmation for your friends and family. I used the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper with this stamp set to create some bright and cheery cards.

Stampin Up Best Dressed Positive Thoughts card ideas for friends and family - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I needed to take a break from watching the news so I decide to unplug and play in my craft room most of the day on Saturday. It was so much fun! The Best Dressed Designer Series Paper has so many gorgeous floral designs. I will be making more cards using all of them! Here’s a quick video showing each of the different patterns.

Here’s a closer look at each of the cards I created.

For my first card I used Blackberry Bliss for the card base and dressed up the edge of the Old Olive strip with a die from Stitched Be Mine Dies. The Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon is so easy to wrap and tie bows! You can also dye it any color you want using Stampin’ Blends!

Purple Posy and Mint Macaron create a beautiful soft color combination. I used the Beautiful Scalloped Linen Ribbon to create the border trim.

My third card uses Old Olive and Daffodil Delight along with the Stitched Be Mine Die and Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon.

The layout of each is the same with just a few subtle differences with ribbon and trim. Here’s the details:

  • Card Base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
  • Whisper White layer: 3 5/8 x 4 7/8
  • DSP Layer: 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 and 1 1/4 x 4 1/4
  • Add ribbon and trim to DSP strip before adhering to card.
  • Stamp sentiment from Positive Thoughts and punch with 1 1/2 Circle Punch.
  • Cut Circle Die in coordinating color to layer sentiment.
  • Punch scrap in same color cardstock as card base using Label Me Pretty Punch
  • Adhere sentiment layer to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add pearls on eaither side of greeting.
  • Stamp sentiment, fern, and butterfly on Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4 for inside of card. 
  • Stamp the front of the envelope to coordinate.
