Free Stampin' Up! PDF Tutorial for 3D Teepee Fun Fold Christmas card

Hello crafty friends. 

Today I have a free PDF tutorial for you to download, to show you how to make this 3D Teepee Christmas card , which collapses flat to fit into a standard C6 envelope. You most likely have everything you need to make this fun fold card at home, however I have used the Stampin' Up! Stitched Triangle dies and Stitched Stars dies on mine. The tutorial gives you all the measurements and step by step instructions with lots of photos.

My paper is Heartwarming Hugs DSP from the 2020 August to December Holiday Catalogue. I have also used the Stitched Triangle Dies from Stampin' Up! for cutting the DSP, and the tutorial shows you the best measurements to fit these. For my decoration I have used the Stitched Stars Dies, the Blue Adhesive Backed Gems (so sparkly and beautiful), and a greeting from the Wrapped In Christmas stamp set.

Bright Pink Stampin' Up! Poinsettia Petals 2020 Christmas Card

Let's brighten things up shall we? Today I have the beautiful Stampin' Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle from the 2020 Holiday (August to December Mini Catlogue) again, but I have brightened it up a notch or 10 with the colour.  You can view all the products I have used today using the image links at the end of the post.

Instructions to Watercolour this Poinsettia

  1. I embossed the three layers of the flower, in white embossing powder onto Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper
  2. I taped the watercolour sheet down with washi tape onto an old piece of cardboard for my work surface.
  3. Using a plastic paint palette, I added one drop of Magenta Madness reinker to one spot, 2 drops to another spot, and one drop of Blackberry bliss reinker to the third spot. I then added some water to each one (a couple of sprats of my spritzer did it). Test the colours to make sure they are the dilution you want.
  4. I spritzed the embossed images a couple of times from about 20cm away so the surface of the watercolour paper was wet.
  5. I started with the one drop of the Magenta Madness mix and  just dabbed onto the petals using my medium Waterpainter. The colour easily spreads without brushing because of all the water that is already added.
  6. I then added darker contrast with the 2 drop Magenta Madness, and finally some Blackberry Bliss in the centre and on the tips of some of the petals. If the ink isn't distributing as well as you would like, give another spray of the water spritzer.
  7. Let the inked images dry naturally and cut out with paper snips before layering together with dimensionals.
  8. After I assembeld the flower, I painted the visible bits of the flower with Wink of Stella for extra sparkle. It's hard to capture the sparkle in photos. but this one shows glimpses of it. It's much more sparkly in real life. Wink of Stella is such an affordable and easy way to give your projects sparkle.

Here's what it looked like when I was watercolouring:

Pink Poinsettia in progress

My base card is Smoky Slate, and my second layer is a piece of Fluid 100 watercolour aper with a very light waterwash of Smoky Slate, which I mounted on a thin mat of Rich Razzleberry cardstock. I worked out where I wanted the poinsettia to go, and then stamped ome of the foliage from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set directly onto the watercolour paper in Smoky Slate. I also did that with the greeting. I recommend using the Stamparatus Stamp Positioning Tool for this step, because it allows you to stamp over the top again in exactly the same spot if you don't get a good stamped impression the first time (which is often the case with watercolour paper because it is so porous).

For the other foliage, I die cut some in silver foil, and others I stamped in Rich Razzleberry and die cut with the coordinating dies in the bundle. For the centre of the Poinsettia, I coloured three of the large clear Rhinestone Jewels with my dark Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blend, so they coordinated with the rest of the project. I also added a few of the smaller clear Rhinestone Jewels (one top left, two around the bottom right of the sentiment) to balance the layout.
