Stampin’ Up! Dressed to Impress Fun Fold Video Tutorial

March 25, 2020

I have a cute fun fold card for you today!

Here is a video showing you how easy it is to make this fun fold:


Pick two colors and make two cards.  Then you can use the Layered Circle you cut out  of the card base to die cut the Stitched Circle to sit your perfume bottle on:)

You get to see both sides of the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper on this card!

Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ and cut as seen in video
2-1/2″ square for Stitched Circle
DSP: 4-1/2″ x 5-1/4″ scored in 1/2″ on 4-1/2″ side
Whisper White: Inside 4″ x 5-1/4″ and 2-1/2″ square to stamp perfume bottle
Thin 1/16″ to 1/8″ x 11″ Strips of Cardstock to put on triangle edges

*I used a sentiment for the inside from the Beautiful You stamp set in the Annual Catalog.

No Matter the Weather March 2020 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Card

March 20, 2020

It’s probably in most people’s hands right now…the March 2020 Paper Pumpkin No Matter the Weather! I thought the January Kit was great. Then the February Kit came, and it was super…
it just keeps on going with Paper Pumpkin!

I made a quick alternative card using the March 2020 No Matter the Weather stamp set and the ADDITIONAL Spring Splash stamp set in the kit.

The sentiment is a keeper that will be used many times over especially with the Under my Umbrella Punch Bundle in the Mini Catalog that coordinates so well with the theme of the
March 2020 Paper Pumpkin No Matter the Weather:)

I just love using the Scalloped Note Cards & Envelopes any time I can! The pretty scallop edged notecards with matching envelopes are just lovely. They are a perfect size to showcase a sweet image like the one in the kit. I like to add a contrast on the inside right edge to really show off the beautiful scalloped edge.

You get 20 Note Cards and 20 matching envelopes for just $8.00 !! One of the best items in the catalog!! Remember this project I did using them with the Time for Tags and Timeless Tag Punch?


The April 2020 Paper Pumpkin My Wonderful Family is going to be a sweet kit, too!

My friend Lisa needed a card for her son, Richard. He is celebrating the big 16!

I made this card using the Retiform Collage Technique. It reminds me of a cool project I did in art class when I was in school.
