General Cards, Seasonal - Spring, Thinking of You

A Fun Fold with Old & New In Colors – Part 1

It’s always an exciting time when a new Annual Catalog comes out because that means, new stamps, new dies, new embossing folders and new In-Colors.  But on the other hand it can be a bit sad as some of the older In-Colors will be retired…in this case the 2020-2022 In-Colors of Magenta Madness, Just Jade, Bumblebee, Misty Moonlight and Cinnamon Cider.  So this card is a little tribute to three of those colors that have now departed from the Stampin’ Up color line up.

I like bright colors and it’s Spring, so the perfect time to show case a flower.  The stamps I used on this card are from the Flowing Flowers Stamp Set.  Not only do I love the flowers in this set (and that’s saying a lot as flowers are not my favorite things to stamp) but the sentiments had me when I first saw this set in the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog.

This is a DisINKtive stamp set, which means that all the shading variations are part of the stamp, so you get great artistic detail by just inking up the stamp and stamping.  The mixture of the fonts is a favorite too.  I am seriously thinking that “Sending a card instead of a text” should be my new motto for my business, although I didn’t even use it on this card!  

This is a Fun Fold Card….kind of a version of a “Z” Fold.  You can see how it folds here:

The panel on the front hides the inside, where you can see I did a little more stamping.  To add a little detail to the card, I used the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder (now retired) to not only the Basic White panel on the front, but also to the fussy cut flower and the sentiment banner.  Went a little crazy with that, but it makes such a huge difference in making this card go from “pretty” to “Oh, Wow, that’s pretty.”

I also added a little “sparkle” to the card with a with a bit of Wink of Stella on the flower and some iridescent gem embellishments.  You can see that the Wink of Stella lightened up the flower a bit compared to where I stamped a portion of the flower on the inside of the card.

This whole card is simple….simple design, simple stamping and simple (and fast) to make.  If you would like to make this card, these are the supplies you will need:

  • Flowing Flowers Stamp Set
  • Tasteful Textiles Embossing Folder (retired)
  • Magenta Madness Cardstock –
    • Cut 5 1/2” x 8 1/2”, Score on the LONG side at 2 1/8” and 4 1/4”
    • Cut 4” x 5 1/4”
  • Basic White Cardstock – Cut 2 pieces 3 3/4” x 5”, plus a piece about 3” x 1” (sentiment)
  • Ink: Magenta Madness, Misty Moonlight and Just Jade
  • Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels (optional)
