Stampin’ UP! Best Butterflies Bundle Balcony Fun Fold Video Tutorial

June 29, 2022

I have a cute fun fold for you today- it’s called a Balcony card.

Here is how I made it:

I used the bright and cheery Stampin’ UP! Butterfly Kisses Designer Series with the Stampin’ UP! Best Butterflies Bundle. It is hard to photograph- here is a top view.

And here are the two side views:)

Here is the back where you can write a message…

Measurements: Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ with DSP: 4″ x 5-1/4″, Balcony mechanism 2-1/2″ x 4″ scored at 1/2″, 2″, and 3-1/2″ with DSP: 2″ x 3″, Bridge across bottom: 1-1/4″ x 6″ scored at 1/2″, 3-1/4″ and 5-1/2″ with DSP: 1″ x 5-1/4″, White on back: (2) 2-1/2″ x 4″

I was inspired by a card I received from my friend, Janet Munden, who used the Stampin’ UP! Hello Ladybug Bundle.

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

Sneak Peek of the Stampin’ UP! Sale-a-bration July-August 2022 Tree Lot Dies with Leaves of Holly Stamps

June 22, 2022! The upcoming Stampin’ UP! Tree Lot Dies available as a Sale-a-bration Gift in July and August is sooo darn cute!!

Please note: The Celebrate Everything DSP is a HOST Gift of 48 pieces of 12 x 12 DSP for $18!!! (I looked at my invoice and saw $30 which I what I paid on pre-order as a demonstrator!- LOL- I have to be better at multitasking with two babies under 18 months in tow because another one comes in October! I also keep saying Tree Lot stamp set when it is called “Trees for Sale” in the Mini Catalog.

I have a few tips to share on how I put this cutie together…

I like how you could customize the camper with any color you want…even those little curtains! It’s a great outdoorsy die set that you can pair with any stamp set!

I made this card a Christmas card by using sentiments from the upcoming Stampin’ UP! Leaves of Holly stamp set available July 1st in the Mini Catalog.

And guess what…the Tree Lot Dies available for FREE with a $100 order during Sale-a-bration in July/August 2022 has a coordinating stamp set called Trees for Sale in the Mini Catalog.

(OOPS! I kept calling it the Tree Lot stamp set in my video! )

Measurements: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side, DSP: 3″ x 4″ bordered by 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ cardstock, scraps for die cuts

I used Shaded Spruce and Granny Apple Green for my trees, Shaded Spruce for my wreath, So Saffron for the windows, and Poppy Parade for the bow, curtain and the border around the DSP and ink.

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
