Stampin’ UP! Something Fancy Bay Window Fun Fold Video Tutorial

January 25, 2023

I made my first Bay Window Fun Fold! I was happy to showcase the beautiful Stampin’ UP! Fancy Flora Designer Series Paper with the Stampin’ UP! Something Fancy Bundle.

It folds flat… and then tucks into the side label to create a “bay window” effect.

Here is a video showing how I made it:

As seen in the video, place the folded score line against the right edge of inside panel. Then lay the 3/8″ portion down on the inside DSP and put dimensionals along the edge. Then center the sentiment label on the DSP on top of the dimensionals. I didn’t have the gold foil strip on yet in the photo in case you are confused!

It was great to use 6 x 6 DSP for this with just a nice 2″ x 6″ piece leftover:)

Here’s the inside of the each card.

How fun and easy is this fold? I love it! What a great way to showcase DSP with this kind of design. Make sure to cut in line with the design if it has one especially if it is a landscape pattern.

Measurements: Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored on 11″ side at 3/8″, 1-7/8″, 3-5/8′, 5-1/8″ and 5-1/2″, DSP 4″ x 5-1/2″ cut from left to right at 1-1/4″x 4″, 1-1/2″ x 4″, 1-1/4″ x 4″, and 1-1/2″ x 4″ as seen in video, (2) 1/4″ x 4″ Gold Foil Strips, Inside panel: 3-1/4″ x 4″, scraps for sentiment labels

Stampin’ UP! Party Puffins with 4 x 4 DSP Tip Video Tutorial

November 16, 2022

I have an old paper cutting tip to share with you today! It takes only a 4″ x 4″ piece of DSP to fill the front of your card! The Stampin’ UP! Black & White Designs DSP has some cool patterns that can be flipped and matched up. But you can do this technique with any DSP you want- using one piece of 4″ x 4″ on one card using the front and back or the same pattern or make two cards using different patterns like these cards.

That puffin is just too cute! Check out my video showing how I put these together…

So many fun ways to put the diagonal strip on the middle of the card. Take a look at these cards where I mixed and matched the card bases, diagonals strips and it appears the DSP.

That cute little “bowtie” is a sneak peek of a kite tie from the upcoming Stampin’ UP! Playing in the Rain Dies that I showcased at the Onstage event in Pittsburgh last week. Doesn’t it look so cute on the puffin?

Here is the inside of the cards…I noticed when I was uploading it that one of the candle flames was missing…oops!

Measurements: Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on the 11, DSP: 4″ x 4″ cut as seen in video, Basic White or black panel for mounting DSP and inside: 4″ x 5-1/4″, Diagonal strip: 7/8″ x 6-1/2″, Scraps for ovals and banners

Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves Bundle

August 26, 2020

If you have not taken a close look at the Love of Leaves Bundle in the Mini Catalog…
now is the time!

After I made my video, I realized I could cut out the step of stamping the Cajun Craze leaf separately by just stamping it on the front panel first, cutting it out with the stitched die, and then using the stitched lines die on the right side of the panel. Then, I just had to pop back in the Cajun Craze leaf! Why didn’t I do that in the first place?!?! Oh well, I bet you were thinking that as I was doing it the other way…lol.

All the leaf dies have stitching detail on them…so cool!
And that detailed stitched lines die- really neat!

You can use the stitched die insert to put texture onto stamped images.

And…oh, how pretty is that Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper…
all occasion patterns with wonderful fall colors among them!


Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side
Whisper White on inside and outside: 4″ x 5-1/4″ and one for stamping leaves and sentiment
Cajun Craze; 2″ square
Plaid Tidings DSP: 1″ x 5-1/4″
