Stampin’UP! Around the Bend Bundle with Beautifully Happy

February 3, 2023

I played around with the Stampin’ UP! Around the Bend Dies this past weekend. The cute little sentiment comes from the Stampin’ UP! Beautifully Happy Sale-a-bration Gift with a $100 purchase. See below all the treats!

I love how you can easily layer the wavy dies. I started out with a 2-1/2″ x 5-3/4″ piece of Basic White and Petal Pink to cut the dies. After cutting each one, I lined them up the two pieces and adhered them to each other. Then I trimmed down the layered dies to 5-1/4″. Starting out with both of them being a tad larger than you want, gives you the extra width you need to line them up. That Sweet Sorbet/Petal Pink pattern in the Regency Park Designer paper is just lovely!

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 Stampin’ UP! Beautifully Happy with Dainty Flowers DSP for Sale-a-bration 2023 Video Tutorial

January 4, 2023

Here is a showcase of two beautiful products available during Sale-a-bration 2023 starting January 5 with the launch of the NEW Stampin’ UP! January-April 2023 Mini Catalog.

The gorgeous background on the front comes from the Stampin’ UP! Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper available as a gift with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-bration- this particular pattern has 6 floral ovals along with some other floral designs that run through the middle. I did add some gold accents from my retired stash. You can add in some delicate ribbon like Fresh Freesia or white, too! Really any kind of embellishment would add some soft detail that adds to the beautiful pattern but does not overpower it.

Here is a sweet fun fold to make a little something different with your cards.

Take a look at this video I made:

I did not put anything on the inside so it would not distract from the outside. The tag/labels are from the Something Fancy Dies- a winner for sure with 12 dies that can fit so many sentiments. It even has a little “hole” die to make every die a tag.

Measurements: Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored on the 8-1/2″ side at 2-1/8″ and 4-1/4″, DSP on folded portions 1-7/8″ x 5-1/4″, Inside panel: 4″ x 5-1/4″, Border around Stitched Rectangle: 3-5/8″ x 4-15/16″

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
