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

Sneak Peek of Stampin’ UP! Taco Fiesta

January 2, 2023

Oh, I love me some guacamole…so the Stampin’ UP! Taco Fiesta drew me in!

I do wish there were die cuts…but I managed to make a card without having to fussy cut…hahaha. I used the Stylish Shapes for all the die cuts. I stamped avocado in black and colored seed with gray blend:) 

You don’t have to add the face on the guac dish if you don’t want it to be a cute-sy image. You can just stamp the dish. But…there are a few cute faces to decorate the image sin the set.

Sale-a-bration 2023 Sneak Peek Stampin’ UP! Adorable Owls

December 14, 2023


I saw this stuffy in Hamley’s Toy Store in London a few weeks ago…I immediately thought of the new Stampin’ UP! Sale-a-bration stamp set Adorable Owls coming out in January 2023.

I have a sneak peek of the cute Stampin’ UP! Sale-a-bration 2023 Adorable Owls. I was blessed to attend my Stampin’ UP! sister’s Team Meeting on Saturday, and we made this cutie!

Isn’t that number 2 just perfect? The Stampin’ UP! Alphabet Al a Mode Dies are coming in the Stampin’ UP! January – April 2023 Mini Catalog!! I love their slender design- I can see getting a lot of use out of them! Janet also used the Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper available during Sale-a-bration 2023, too. It is a 48 pack of 12 x 12 DSP with beautiful geomatric patterns in such pretty spring colors.

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

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

Thanks for buzzing by…
