I had A LOT of requests for a tutorial using the NEW Stampin’ Up Woven Threads Suite
with its Heirloom Frames Dies and 3D Embossing Folders
so I got to work and made a Joy Fold Card with
the NEW In Colors Seaside Spray and Terracotta Tile.
The Stampin’ Up Woven Heirlooms Stamp Set is so, so pretty…the font is just so elegant.
I also used the Pop Of Petals Stamp Set and its coordinating Four Petal Flower Punch.
And I can’t say enough how lovely the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper is…
Here is the tutorial:
Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4. Cut 2-1/8″ off the right side of the front of the card where it opens
DSP: Outside Flap 1-7/8″ x 5-1/4″, Inside 4″ x 5-1/4″ with a rectangle cut out of the middle for the inside of frame
Smaller Opening Card: 4-1/4″ x 6-1/2″ scored at 3-1/4″ on the 6-1/2″ side
Inside White panels on smaller card: (2) 3″ x 4″
Frame: 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″
Belly Band: Colored Cardstock 1-1/4″ x 11″, Whisper White Sentiment Band: 1″ x 11″
Flowers: 2-1/2″ x 5-1/2″
I was taken with the Stampin’ Up Golden Afternoon when I first saw it
but was a bit puzzled how to make it come to life for me.
I was going to sponge some different colors on the leaves but then remembered a card
I did when I first started holding classes…
it was back in 2013 using the Thumping Technique.
So, I did the Thumping Technique using my Stampin’ Write Markers on the Golden Afternoon tree.
See the lovely subtle shades of green that make the tree come to life? I stamped the entire image in Pear Pizzazz ink and then thumped on Shaded Spruce, Old Olive, and Garden Green with my Stampin’ Write markers- NOT the alcohol based Stampin’ Blends.
After I thumped on the leaves, I colored directly on the trunk and branches with an Early Espresso Stampin’ Write marker.
I love the little tree image in the stamp set, too. I did put it in the inside bottom right but forgot to take a pic- and the card has been sent out to someone:)
The Stampin’ Up All That You Are stamp set is the first stamp set in the Occasions Catalog,
and I think it belongs at the top of the list.
Isn’t it pretty?
The big bloom is just gorgeous, and the pretty posies, the foliage, and the sentiment label are cut out with the Frosted Bouquet Framelits.
Remember the Frosted Bouquet Framelits were bundled with the First Frost stamp set in the Holiday catalog so if you have that bundle, you can add the Stampin’ Up All That You Are stamp set to your collection and have two stamp sets that work with the framelits!
I paired the Stampin’ Up Well Said Bundle with the Stampin’ Up All That You Are stamp set on the outside and the inside.
Oh my, I played with the Stampin’ Up Painted Seasons Bundle and fell in love.
I paired it with the beautiful Lasting Lily stamp set.
The images stamp so beautifully with a very detailed realistic impression. I was in a blue/pink mood when I designed this card.
I sneaked in some retired Pool Party DSP to coordinate with the ink on the big flower. Any DSP will work to decorate the inside of the card.
Here is a video showing how to cut the fun front flip on the card.
Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ on the 8-1/2″ side. Cut in 1-1/4″ along the score line on each side and cut away the rectangle flap by cutting at 1-1/4″ on each side
Whisper White: outside panel 2-3/4″ x 4″, inside 4″ x 5-1/4″
DSP on inside: 1-1/4″ x 4″

I made these sympathy cards for a swap last week using the Stampin’ Up Dear Doily Bundle.
Sadly, I know a lot of us are having to use them as of late.
My prayer is all of you who are suffering loss will find comfort in the wonderful memories you have spent with your loved ones.
A comforting card to let someone know you care in a time of grief and loss. My Grandpa Rick, in his mid-nineties, just went to Heaven to meet up with my Grandma Lil on Saturday. December would have been 75 years of marriage for them. He was alone for the last two years awaiting the time when he would see her again. I rejoice because of his faith in Jesus and his eternal resting place in Heaven with Jesus and Grandma.
