Fancy Fold with DSP

Hi!  How are you today?  We are winding down with Sale-A-Bration – as it ends on August 31, so I wanted to share with you one last card featuring the Wonderful World Bundle.

This one uses both the Designer  Series Paper and the coordinating Stamp set that you get in the bundle.  You still have time to earn this bundle FREE with a $100 purchase (US, prior to S/H and tax) in my on-line store.

Wonderful World, Very Best Occasions, Stampin' Up!, DSP, SU!, #SAB2022

Ok, so I did say that this was a Fancy Fold. what makes it that?  The Designer Series Paper is actually  4″ x 12″, so when you open the card, here is what you see!

Wonderful World, DSP, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #SAB2022, Fancy Fold

Isn’t that pretty?  Now you don’t  have to worry about which side of the paper to showcase!  This card showcases both!  You could use the entire pack to make 36 cards (you would just have to forgo the strip inside the card).

Here’s what you need:

  • Base – Mossy Meadow – 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
  • Designer Series Paper – 4″ x 12″, score at 5 1/4″ and 10 1/2″ – fold down on the first score and up on the second.
  • Inside – Basic White – 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Strip (optional) – 1/2″ x 5 1/4″

Attach the back flap of the Designer Series Paper to the Base Mossy Meadow.  Adhere the bottom flap of the Designer Series Paper to the front using Seal adhesive.  Wrap the Mossy Meadow Braided Linen Thread (on the Clearance Rack for $2.80!) around the front and tie in a knot.

Use the Stampin’ Write Markers – Melon Mambo and Mossy Meadow, to ink the flower right on the stamp, and then stamp on a scrap of Basic White.  Die cut with the Stylish Shapes circle die.  Stamp the sentiment from Very Best Occasions (found in the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog) in StaZon Jet Black ink over the flower.   Attach the circle to the card front using dimensionals.

I highly recommend the Very Best Occasions Stamp Set – the sentiments are prefect for card fronts – or insides, and covers Birthday, Christmas, Sympathy, Thinking of You, Thank You and just because.  I love when a sentiment set covers many different purposes.   With 3 kids out of the house, the sentiment above will be getting lots of use this coming year.

Just a reminder, I am offering a Double Down for every $50 and $100 purchase made with this link through Monday, August 29th.   You can get a FREE, new in package, stamp set or bundle when you place a $50 or $100 order.   Link to store: https://www.stampinup.com?hostcode=ATHJQUSR

No Ink Required

Hi!  How are you today?  I hope today is a good day!  I’ve had a chance to play with the Wonderful World Sale-a-Bration Bundle – which you can earn FREE through August 31 with a $100 purchase (US, prior to S/H and tax).

I wanted to share how easy it is to make a card using the pretty Designer Series Paper in this bundle – with no stamping required.  (You could, tho, if you wanted to add a sentiment).

Wonderful World DSP, 2022SAB2, Stampin' Up!, SU!

The flowers in this Designer Series Paper are perfect for use on their own.  For this card, I punched 3 of the flowers using the Postage Stamp punch.  The layers for the card are:

  • Base – Thick Basic White – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ and folded.
  • Basic White – 5 1/4″ x 4″, run through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss with the Stripes and Splatters 3D Embossing Folder (just the top of the piece.
  • Wonderful World 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper – 1 1/2″ x 5 1/4″

I am using  Mossy Meadow Braided Linen Trim which is on the Clearance Rack for just $2.80, behind the punched flowers.  As I said, it was quick to put together and required no stamping.

I hope this helps you take a look at your Designer Series Paper in a whole new light!

You have until August 31 to take advantage of Sale-A-Bration.  Shop my on-line store  with Host Code ATHJQUSR to grab your FREE items!  I am also doubling down through August 29th.  You can get a FREE, new in package, stamp set or bundle when you place a $50 or $100 order using the host code above.   Link to store: https://www.stampinup.com?hostcode=ATHJQUSR

More Fun With Scraps

Hi!  Back today with another great way to use up Designer Series Paper scraps!

Expressions In Ink, Scraps, Hello, Friendship, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2021AnnualCatalog, #usehtosescraps

I wish I had been able to get a better picture – this card is stunning in real life.  The gold accents in the Designer Series Paper just pop with the Gold die cut.

The scraps measure 3/4″ x 3″ – so a 3″ x 3″ scrap is what you would need.  The scraps are staggered on the card front and attached with dimensionals.

The base is Pale Papaya measuring 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ and folded.  The Basic White measures 4″ x 5 1/4″ and is embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

This Designer Series Paper is the Expressions in Ink Specialty Paper -and truly can stand on its own.  For this card, I paired it with a die from the Birds & More die set and Gold Foil.

The sentiment is stamped in Pear Pizzazz ink and is from the Forever Fern stamp set.

A few Metallic Pearls finish off the card.  If you have not yet checked out the Expressions In Ink Designer Specialty Paper in the Annual Catalog, I highly recommend it!

There are just 2 weeks left of Sale-A-Bration!  So don’t delay in getting those orders in.  The Be Dazzling 6″ x 6″ paper has sold out and is no longer available.

Paper Blooms DSP, Happy Thoughts, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #JanFeb2021SAB

A cute way to use it and finish up the inside of the card.

More Scrappy Fun!

Hi!  Continuing on with our Snailed It Suite this week for today’s card.  And, wanted to give you another idea on how to use those Designer Series Paper scraps.

Hello, Friendship, Snailed It, DSP Scraps, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #JanJuneMini2021

This is such a fun layout to play with and so much you can do with it – plus a great way to use up those scraps!

For this card, I started with a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper pack measuring 4 1/2″ x 3 1/4″.  On the 4 1/2″ side, cut at 2 1/4″.  Rotate, keeping both pieces together, and on the 3 1/4″ side, cut at 1 5/8″.  You now have 4 equal sized rectangles.  Keep them in order for placement on the card.

For a mat, I used Real Red Cardstock measuring 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″.  Cut on the 4 3/4″ side at 2 3/8″.  Rotate, keeping both pieces together, and cut on the 3 1/2″ side at 1 3/4″.    Attach the Designer Series Pieces to these 4 Real Red pieces.

For the base of the card, I used Blushing Bride measuring 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ on the 8 1/2″ side and folded in half.  A layer of Basic White cardstock measuring 5 1/4″ x 4″ is layered on top.

Adhere 3 of the 4 squares as shown in the pattern above to the Basic White layer.  Stamp your sentiment in the lower right corner.   I punched a 2″ Real Red circle from scrap cardstock.

The mushrooms are stamped in Jet Black StaZon and colored with Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen.  Colors are Garden Green, Real Red, Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight.

Here’s another version using the Snail:

Snailed It, Birthday, DSP Scraps, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #JanJuneMini2021

You don’t have to use all the same Designer Series Paper pattern, the final rectangles measure 2 1/4″ x 1 5/8″.  The mat layers measures 2 3/8″ x 1 3/4″.

Purchase the Snail Mail Suite Collection in my on-line store!  The suite qualifies you for a FREE Sale-A-Bration item when purchased prior to Feb 28th!  Don’t miss out!

Birthday, Gift Card Holder, Way To Goat, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020AnnualCatalog

This stamp set is adorable!  I shared this card with a group of ladies during a workshop and then decided to use it during this past week’s Facebook Live.  It is just that cute not to share!

Here’s what you need:  (dimensions below are height by length)

  • Base Cardstock – 4 1/4″ x 8″ – score at 2 1/2″ on the 8″ side.
  • Base Cardstock – 3 3/4″ x 8″ – score at 4″ and fold in half.
  • Coordinating Mat Cardstock – 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
  • Coordinating Mat Cardstock – 4 1/8″ x 2 3/8″
  • Coordinating Mat Cardstock – 3″ x 3″
  • Designer Series Paper – 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Designer Series Paper – 4″ x 2 1/4″
  • Designer Series Paper – 3 5/8″ x 3 7/8″
  • Designer Series Paper – 2″ x 4″
  • Neutral Cardstock – 3 5/8″ x 3 7/8″
  • Neutral Cardstock – 2 7/8″ x 2 7/8″

The assembly for this card is shown in this video:

The goat is stamped in Memento Black Ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends.  The one above uses Smoky Slate and Petal Pink.  In the video, I switched to Gray Granite for the goat.

One important tip – adhere the ribbon to the very base before adhering any of the layers.  If you forget this step, you could just wrap the ribbon around the back of the card as well.

The Designer Series Paper used is the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper from the 2020 Annual Catalog.  It is on sale this month for 15% off!  This paper is perfect for both male and female cards – I LOVE when my paper packs are versatile and have patterns and colors for anyone!

It’s as Easy As This

Hi!  How are you?  Sorry I’ve been MIA for the past 6-7 weeks.  Life threw some curve balls and I had to let my blog sit during that time.  Well, I am back and I wanted to catch you up with some of the cards I’ve been making.

This first one – while it looks complicated, is so easy to do!  Thanks to Sandy’s Craft Studio for this fun Angle-Cut Designer Series Paper technique.

Angle Cut DSP, Ornate Garden, Friendship, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020AnnualCatalog

Does this angle cut Designer Series Paper look hard?  Well, I’m here to show you how easy it is to make 4 cards from one piece of 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper.   For this card, I used the Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper.  The sentiment is from Lovely You and the flowers from Daisy Lane.

Start with a 6″ x 6″ piece of your favorite DSP and a 6 1/4″ x 6 1/4″ of coordinating cardstock.

For the DSP, make a small mark at 1 1/2″ on all 4 sides.   Then, watch the video below to show you how to cut.

For the Cardstock, make your marks at 1 5/8″ and follow the same cutting instructions.

I made 2 of the card above and 2 of this card with the four pieces:

Angle Cut Cards, Ornate Garden, Birthday, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020AnnualCatalog

This sentiment comes from the Butterfly Wishes Stamp set and the flower from the Lovely You stamp set.  The colors are Terracotta Tile, Crushed Curry and Old Olive.  The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso.

Here’s the video showing you how to cut the DSP and cardstock:

All Dressed Up

Hi!  Today I have a card for you using the gorgeous Best Dressed Designer Series Paper!

The prints in this paper make it so easy to pull together cards that are just stunning.  For this card, the paper is paired with the Peaceful Moments stamp set and the retiring Delicate Lace Dies and Stitched Labels Dies.  These die sets add the perfect touch to this card.

The sentiment is stamped in Lovely Lipstick.

For this second card,

the sentiment is from the Seriously the Best stamp set.

Both cards were made using 1 6×6″ piece of Designer Series Paper.  The first card uses a piece that is 2″ x 5 1/4″, while the second uses a piece that is 4″ x 5 1/4″.  This leaves a single strip measuring 3/4″ x 6″ that could be used on the inside of either card.
