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!

Pop Up Fun Fold Card. For directions and supplies visit www.juststampin.com

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.

A is for Affectionately Yours DSP

Welcome to my new alphabet series…The ABC’s with DSP!  This month I will feature projects showcasing Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper. The Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper has colorful floral designs including copper foil.

I made this fun fold flap card using a piece of 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 night of navy cardstock for the base.  I cut another strip of night of navy 1 3/4 x 4 3/4 and scored it at 4″.  I folded the flap over the 4 x 5 1/4 piece of designer series paper from Affectionately Yours then adhered it to the card base.  I cut 2 pieces of crumb cake 2 1/4 x 4 and embossed 1 using the Floral Affection Embossing Folder.  I layered each piece of crumb cake on 2 1/2 x 4 1/4 night of navy cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from Endless Birthday Wishes in night of navy ink.  I stamped the flowers from Love & Affection on crumb cake cardstock using night of navy ink.  I cut these out with paper snips and adhered to the embossed layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added some Rhinestone Jewels then adhered the layered piece on the flap using more Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The inside sentiment and flowers are from Love & Affection and stamped in night of navy. I used fast fuse to adhere the layer to the card base.  I opened the flap and placed the sentiment layer over the back of the embossed layer so when I closed the card it would be perfectly centered under the layer.

I added the same Designer Series Paper to my envelope along with a 1/4″ strip of night of navy to tie it all together. This would be a great card to send to anyone to bring a smile to their face. Who would you send this card to?

N is for Note Cards

Welcome to my ABC’s of Stampin’ series.  Today I am focusing on the Stampin’ Up!  Note Cards & Envelopes. I love these cards and the fact that they are thick cardstock and ready to go!  I send a lot of thank you notes and these are the perfect size for a nice handwritten note.  Not only that, they are a great deal…you get 20 cards and envelopes for $6.00.  That’s just 30 cents each for a card and envelope! WOW!

I was inspired by Chat Wszelaki’s  designs (Me, My Stamps, and I) using the Love & Affection stamp set.  I changed it up a bit to make my notecards. The sentiments I chose are from Thankful Thoughts and Flourishing Phrases stamp sets. I love embossing folders and the Floral Affection set is a beauty!  You can see below I even used it to emboss the envelopes. I cut 1 inch strips of Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper for my note cards. I “fussy cut” the flowers and leaves and attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I love how these note cards turned out!
