Stampin’ Up! Sweet Ice Cream Thank You With Sprinkles!

Happy Holiday Monday, y’all!  If you’re working today – I hope it’s in your pajamas!  If you did have to do yourself up – I hope it was only from the WAIST up – and that you’re rocking pajama bottoms! 🙂

I have a sweet thank you card for you today – that will make you long for summer!  Or…eating ice cream in the dead of winter.  Whatever works for you!  My theory is – as long as the heat’s working in the house – ice cream is on the table!  And this triple scoop cone – from the Sweet Ice Cream Bundle and Ice Cream Corner DSP – is sure to give you a hankering. 🙂 Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

And I played along at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge, too!

I started with some sprinkle-strewn paper from the Ice Cream Corner DSP that I matted on Cinnamon Cider for the card front.

Next up, I used the next-to-largest rectangle in the Stitched So Sweetly die set to cut some cone-designed paper from the Ice Cream Corner DSP – that I adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

The next layer is Basic White – cut with the largest of the rectangles in the Stitched So Sweetly set.  Man – I LOVE this die set! 😉

On the side, at a jaunty angle, I stamped the sentiment from Sweet Ice Cream in Cinnamon Cider.  Then I adhered the panel to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch to make my ice cream cone – and more of the Ice Cream Corner DSP.  First, I punched the cone itself from the cone-design paper – and adhered it to the white panel with Liquid Glue.

I punched three scoops using the punch from a few different pieces of the DSP – see all those splotchy looking shapes? – they’re perfect for making ice cream!

I adhered the bottom scoop with Liquid Glue and the next two with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Before I added the top Purple Posy scoop (Lavender Honey ice cream – I’m pretty sure!) – I stamped the sprinkles image from Sweet Ice Cream in stamped-off-once Highland Heather ink.

I added a couple three Purple Posy dots from the Playing With Patterns Resin Dots – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Sweet Ice Cream sentiment in Cinnamon Cider on a piece of Basic White.  In the corner – I stamped the cone – and the cone-detail! – in Cinnamon Cider.  Bermuda Bay is the scoop color this time – with Bermuda Bay sprinkles!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and into my Bermuda Bay card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got another Bermuda Bay ice cream cone on the front…

…and more of the Ice Cream Corner DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Are you hungry for some ice cream??  Not gonna lie – I could eat a cone myself!  This Sweet Ice Cream Bundle – with the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch – works so perfectly with the Ice Cream Corner DSP to create some yummy frozen treats!

I hope you like! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix 

We ran out of Skinny Pop.

Which is hard cuz we buy it by the gross.

Literally.

Okay – maybe not LITERALLY.  BUT – if it goes on sale at Sam’s or Costco – and there’s a limit of….10….then…guess how many we walk out the door with?? 😉

So.  I saw Skinny Pop microwave version at the grocery store and figured it would be a suitable sub.

Sidebar: it’s not.

The other night, I had a bag and when I finished I set it on the sofa next to me.

The man oh-so-casually hopped up to settle in at the other end of the sofa.

This is a hard one, Mom.

Anyone want to speculate on what happened next? 😉

Stampin’ Up! Vine Design Congratulations with Video Tutorial

Happy Sunday, y’all!  This is a three-day, right?  I realized that yesterday when I saw a commercial for a sale for the three-day weekend.  When you’re retired – Monday is Monday is Monday!!  But – if you’re NOT retired, then I hope that you get tomorrow off!  And get to do something fun like…NOT get up and go to work!

If you were able to join me for my Facebook live yesterday, I appreciate you spending part of your long-weekend with me!  If not, here’s the replay!

The card I did is what is – for me! – a clean card – albeit a layered one!  You know that’s not my wheelhouse but I tried to do something a little different!  Didn’t even add a rhinestone.  Or the tiniest piece of ribbon!  I used the new Vine Design bundle, a couple of awesome die sets and…well – ink and cardstock!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Global Design Project sketch.

And the colors are from the Color Throwdown challenge.

I started with a piece of Basic White that I matted on Granny Apple Green and again on Pacific Point cardstock to create the card front.

Next, I cut a piece of Basic White with a Stitched Rectangle Die, then I ran it back thru the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine with a Stitched With Whimsy die right in the middle!  That made for a really interesting stitched design!

I popped the die cut panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the rectangular die in the Flowering Vine die set (bundled with the Vine Design stamp set), I cut another piece of Basic White – then used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the popped up panel.

I stamped the Vine Design frame image in Granny Apple Green on Basic White.  In the middle, I stamped the sentiment in Melon Mambo.  Then I cut it with the matching die in the Flowering Vine set.  I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and….the card front was done!

Now – to be fair – I was on a ZOOM the Craftroom with some folks – and they helped me to step away from the card.  Leave well enough alone.  Put.  The.  Rhinestones.  DOWN!

It was hard!

On the inside, I stamped the vine image from Vine Design in Granny Apple Green on a Basic White panel. I added some sweet little flowers in Melon Mambo to finish it off!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Granny Apple Green and Pacific Point mat and then into my Thick Basic White card base and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Vine Design vines and flowers on the front…

…and some Pacific Point paper from the Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.  Hint:  this design is in the NEW DSP packs – that will come out in the summer in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog (AND that you can get for FREE when you join Stampin’ Up! during Sale-A-Bration!).

Et Voila!  I really like this Vine Design bundle – it’s always cool when you get sentiments AND a frame that work together – especially when there is ALSO a die to cut it out easy peasy!  Add in the gorgeous detailed dies – in THREE shapes! – and you’re talking a winning combination!

I hope you like!

If you’d like to recreate these cards, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

Finn Fan Fix 

Our little terrorist – Katie – had to go to her doctor on Friday.  She was having trouble in the litter box, if you catch my drift.

She hates – hateshateshates – riding in the car.  If the final destination was a wide open field planted panther-ear deep in catnip, populated by 2-legged mice that even old panthers could catch – with fresh salmon to nibble on whenever she wanted it – she would STILL hatehatehate riding in the car.

Turns out she’s got a bacterial infection – so…a couple of injections and some…wipes.

Huh?  Wipes?  And you’d like me to wipe her….there?  Oh – only once a day.  Well – then THAT’S easy enough.

She looks like she’s REALLY going to be receptive to the wipes.

Not.

Finn?  He be like…wipemewipemewipeme!!

Stampin’ Up! Dandy Dragonfly Garden Fun Fold With Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  Hoping that your week went well – and that you’re ready for a weekend.  You’ll be fascinated to hear that – in celebration of National Pizza WEEK (yes, that’s a thing – but it ends Saturday so….get to eating!) – we ate sourdough crust pizza last night! And it were yummy!

I’ve got a fun fun-fold for you today and, if you were able to join me for my YouTube live yesterday, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me!  If not, here’s the replay!

I pulled out the Dragonfly Garden Bundle – with the fun Dragonflies Punch – and some Dandy Garden DSP and pulled it all together to create a z-fold card (of sorts).  Take a look-see:

The color palette for this one is from this week’s Paper Players Challenge!

I started with a 5 1/4″ x 11″ piece of cardstock – Blackberry Bliss for the sample card (I used Calypso Coral in the video) – and scored and folded it at 1 3/4″, 5 1/2″ and 9 3/4″ along the long side.

I matted Dandy Garden DSP on Bumble Bee cardstock – using Misty Moonlight paper for two panels and Bumble Bee paper for the center panel.

I adhered all the matted panels to the card base with Liquid Glue.

For the belly band, I gently folded a 1″ x 11″ piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock (or Calypso Coral) around the folded-up card and adhered the ends together with Liquid Glue on the front of the card.

The sentiment started with a piece of Basic White cardstock that I cut with the third smallest Stitched Rectangle Die.  I ran it again thru the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, this time with one of the new Stitched With Whimsy dies in the middle.

I stamped the middle of the sentiment label with the Dragonfly Garden sentiment in Misty Moonlight (Mossy Meadow in the video) and then stamped the wunnermus wildflower image three times over the top in Bumble Bee.  Then I adhered it to the middle of the belly band with Liquid Glue.

I punched a dragonfly from the Dandy Garden DSP (Blackberry Bliss or Calypso Coral) using the Dragonflies Punch.  I gently curled the wings and adhered it with Liquid Glue.  Then I used the punch to punch Blackberry Bliss (or Calypso Coral) small dragonflies and adhered them as well.  Those got a swipe with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

For the inside, I stamped the Dragonfly Garden wildflowers image twice in Bumble Bee on the bottom of a Basic White panel.  Then I added the little “swarm” image in Blackberry Bliss (Calypso Coral in the video).

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into the card base and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Dragonfly Garden wildflowers and “swarm” on the front…

…and more Dandy Garden DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Love love love the Dandy Garden Suite, don’t you?  From the Dragonfly Garden stamp set with it’s perfectly fun Dragonflies Punch

…to the gorgeous Dandy Garden DSP

….it’s a winner!  I hope you like!

If you’d like to recreate these cards, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

Finn Fan Fix 

In the evenings, when the horses come in, we tell Finn to “go to your spot”.

His spot is a dog bed.  Wherever the dog bed is – so…it moves around some.

But – it’s still his spot and he goes there to watch over the pony parade as they come in!

He’ll usually lay down – with blinky blinking around his neck! – for at least the start of the event.

But…as they get closer – sometimes he has to sit up – just to be sure they see him.

Just double checking that I’m there and won’t let one of the mean girls get him! 😉

To be clear – they aren’t ACTUALLY mean and I won’t let them get him!

Stampin’ Up! Hey Birthday Chick Bundle Sneak Peek Birthday Card

Happy Happy HAWWWWMP Day!!  Yep – it’s mid-week and you’re at the top of the hill.  It’s a downhill slide to the weekend from here! 🙂

Weekends are fun.  Everyone likes weekends!

And…new stamp sets and dies – swarming with uber-cute-and-stinkin’-adorable chickens are ALSO fun.  And everyone ALSO likes THEM!  Which means everyone is going to LOVE this new bundle that you’re going to be able to get on 2 Feb!  It’s called the Hey Birthday Chick bundle!  Now – Hey Birthday Chick is already IN the Jan- Jun 2021 Mini Catalog (page 52 if you’re looking).  But – in a couple of weeks (or…right NOW if you’re a Demonstrator or JOIN NOW!) – you’ll be able to get the Hey Birthday Chick DIES!  I’ve used this new bundle today – with some Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one comes from the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of Mossy Meadow card stock for the card front.  From a piece of Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP I cut two rectangles with the second-largest of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered them to the panel with Liquid Glue.

Then I pulled out the Hey Birthday Chick dies, cut a Bumble Bee sentiment (how cool is that?!?) and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White (Basic White will for sure work, too!), I stamped the cute chicken and balloon image from Hey Birthday Chicken in Early Espresso.  I also stamped the balloon part on a piece of Blackberry Bliss Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP.  Using the die in the Hey Birthday Chicken set to cut the chicken and balloon.  I fussy cut the DSP balloon and colored over the lines with my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker, then popped it over the stamped balloon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I colored the chicken with my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Combo and Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Marker.

Using the fence die in Hey Birthday Chicken Dies I cut an Early Espresso fence.  I also cut three “feed sacks” – one each in Bumble Bee, Mossy Meadow and Crumb Cake.

I adhered the fence and three “feed sacks” with Liquid Glue – then popped the chicken and balloon over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I decided my chicken was a hen – and needed a hair bow – so I cut one (yes, it’s in the die set!) from the same Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP paper and stuck it in her hair with Liquid Glue.  And…the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Hey Birthday Chick image in Early Espresso ink on a piece of Whisper White (or Basic White).  I colored it with Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo and Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blend Combos and Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Marker.  I also stamped the image on the Dandy Garden DSP and fussy cut just the cupcake liner, which I adhered with Liquid Glue over the stamped image.  Then I stamped a second sentiment in Bumble Bee.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to Mossy Meadow and Bumble Bee mats and then into my Blackberry Bliss card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the fun chicken and cupcake image on the front…

…and more of the Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  You know, I loved the Hey Chick set when it was part of 2017 Sale-A-Bration and these little guys and gals in the Hey Birthday Chick set are all similar to those guys!  And…add in the totes-adorbs Hey Birthday Chick Die set….and you’ve got a winner!

And – we’re ALSO going to see the return of Hey Chick.  With dies of its own!

I hope you like and…are adding the whole shootin’ match to your I-gotta-get-it list!!

Finn Fan Fix 

Since his arrival four years ago, we’ve taught Finn to not go into the stalls.

At all.  Whether the horses are in them or not.  For obvious reasons.

And he’s been pretty solid on it.  He does lean into the doorway some to…sniff the sniffs and see if they dropped any food.

Or….erhm…droppings. 😉

So – imagine my surprise when, as I was cleaning Cady’s stall yesterday morning, I look up to see…

Four paws in.  ALL the way in.

You can see he knows he’s been spotted.

So….

I think this is the dog equivalent of whistling!  Nothing to see here.  Just a dog.  In a stall….

Maybe she won’t be mad if I offer an obedience behavior. And be really cute.

Who knows.  It could work!!

Stampin’ Up! Punch Party in Love for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop!

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is Love!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

There’s a VERY cool stamp set that you can get for FREE right now – while Sale-A-Bration is going on! – when you place an individual order over $300 in retail (or host a workshop that totals over $300) – called the Punch Party stamp set.  I used it – and some of the uber-pretty Love You Always Specialty DSP and Love You Always Foil to make my love-themed card!  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is inspired by just the sketch portion of the…Inspired By challenge this week! 🙂

I started with a piece of Whisper (Basic) White and embossed it in the new Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder.  Then, using my Blending Brush (these are new and AWESOME!), I lightly colored the panel with Rococo Rose ink.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Blushing Bride piece of Love You Always Foil to make the card front.

The Punch Party stamp set coordinates with the Heart Punch Pack, the Double Oval Punch and the Rectangular Postage Punch.  I used both punches in the Heart Punch Pack for this one.  Using the scalloped punch (which is larger) – I cut one of each of the three foil colors (Sahara Sand, Blushing Bride, and Rococo Rose) from the Love You Always Foil.  I used the smaller – straight-edge punch – to cut a piece of Sahara Sand and Blushing Bride paper from the Love You Always Specialty DSP.

I adhered the Sahara Sand pieces and the Blushing Bride pieces together with Liquid Glue – then adhered them to the card front – stacking them up.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Punch Party sentiment in Rococo Rose.  I punched it with the smaller, straight-edge Heart Punch and popped that heart onto the Rococo Rose Foil heart with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the matted sentiment heart to the card front with Liquid Glue.

A few Champagne Rhinestones adhered to the card front finished it off.

On the inside, I stamped the Punch Party heart in Blushing Bride on a piece of Whisper White (or Basic White) and added a second sentiment in Rococo Rose.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a piece of Blushing Bride Love You Always Foil and into my Sahara Sand card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White (or Basic White) Medium Envelope got the Punch Party heart in Blushing Bride and some smaller hearts from the set in Rococo Rose on the front…

…and some of the Rococo Rose Love You Always Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Y’all – I am TOTALLY in love with the Punch Party stamp set – and you should be, too!  As I mentioned, it coordinates with the Heart Punch Pack, the Double Oval Punch and the Rectangular Postage Punch. Trust me when I say…you NEED this stamp set!  Soooooo…..

And as we head into Valentine’s Day and the season of love, there are few better packs of paper to have in your stash than the Love You Always Specialty DSP and coordinating Love You Always Foil!

I hope you like!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Stampin’ Up! Snailed It Happy Thoughts Slim-Line Card

Good morning and welcome to another work week.  I hope it will be a good one for all of you!

My card today is a Slim-Line one and I don’t usually do them.  The lack of envelopes is a sticky point for me – but…I saw the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches this week and I wanted to play along.  And it occured to me that….regular business envelopes are slim-line-card-friendly.  And – mine are the security-kind so…no one will be able to “peek” at my card! 😉

With that problem solved…I pulled out my Snailed It bundle – yes, FINALLY got it!!, the coordinating Snail Mail DSP and the Happy Thoughts stamp set to make a sort of thank-you-y sort of congratulations-y card.  Take a look-see:

 

And here’s the challenge from Freshly Made Sketches.

I started with a long piece of Snail Mail DSP that I matted on Real Red for the card front.  Then I looped some Blushing Bride twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo twice around the panel – securing it on the card front under the decorations.

I used the square die in the Snail Die Set to cut two pieces of Snail Mail DSP – and adhered them both to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Snailed It sentiment in Real Red on a piece of Whisper White (Basic White will work, too), cut it with the next-to-smallest Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

There are two dies in Snail Die Set that cut adorable snails from a couple of the designs in the Snail Mail DSP – so I cut them out!

Using a combination of Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals, I adhered the two sweet snails to the card front.

Then I cut three hearts from Real Red – using the Snail Dies again – and adhered them with Liquid Glue.

I tied two pieces of Blushing Bride Snail Mail Twine in a bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a Happy Thoughts sentiment in Real Red on a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, in Tuxedo Black, I stamped the cute Snailed It mushroom image.  I also stamped that image again on the two DSPs I’d used in the front.  Then I fussy cut some mushrooms and adhered them to the stamped image with Liquid Glue (gotta love a little Paper Piecing!).  I added a couple three Resin Heart Embellishments, too!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Real Red mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My white business envelope got a Real Red image from Snailed It on the front…

…and I added some of the Bermuda Bay Snail Mail DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila! Sometimes you just gotta think outside the box, huh?  A business envelope – decorated, of course, cuz…#nonekkidenvelopes!…is a perfectly acceptable mailing vessel!  Which is good – because this Snailed It-strewn card is too cute to hide at home!

The Snail Mail DSP is so much fun – and how perfectly perfect for piecing the mushrooms on the inside!

Happy Thoughts is the perfect set to have in your tool box – with sentiments that are ready for any occasion!

I hope you like!

If you’d like to recreate these cards, all the products and card cuts are listed below!

Stampin’ Up! True Love Art Gallery Congrats with Video Tutorial

Well – happy Sunday, y’all!  Hope the weekend is going well!  We did the usual yesterday – trip to the Post Office (no – not shares….most of them will go out on Monday.  A couple will be waiting for the Love Always Foil replacement that SU is sending – UPS got a little….jiggy!….with my box and there were crumpled corners I didn’t want to send you!). We ALSO hit Walmart to pick a selection of cat foods – of the gourmet variety – to see if we can find one that Her Majesty the Queen-of-the-House will eat.  We got several different kinds cuz…yeah.  What’s acceptable on Tuesday has a low probability of being acceptable on Thursday.  Or…Tuesday evening! 😉

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me.  If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube – here ’tis!

I really love the black-and-white palette in the True Love DSP and on this one I played with the Spotlight Technique.  Then I added a sentiment and a couple images from the pretty Art Gallery set.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s TGIF Challenge.

And the color palette is from the Global Design Challenge.

I started with a piece of the True Love DSP and cut the largest label die from Stitched So Sweetly right out of the middle.

Then I colored the flowers and leaves on just the cut-out piece with my Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Combos.

I adhered the larger portion of the panel to a Night of Navy mat with Liquid Glue – then used Black Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the now-colored cut out back in place.

On a piece of Soft Sea Foam, I stamped the Art Gallery sentiment in Night of Navy ink.

I cut the sentiment with the smallest, narrow Stitched Rectangle Die and popped it onto the card front with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Then I added some Champagne Rhinestones and the card front was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the pretty Art Gallery floral image in Petal Pink on a Whisper White panel (Basic White would work, too!).

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Night of Navy mat and into my Soft Sea Foam card base, popped the card front on with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got an Art Gallery floral on the front in Petal Pink…

…and more of the True Love DSP (colored with the Blends) on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Isn’t the True Love DSP so pretty!  Florals and geometric designs – all in black and white!

The Art Gallery stamp set – even without the bundled Floral Gallery dies – can be counted on for gorgeous multi-step florals and handy sentiments! 🙂

I hope you like!

Finny loves our chilly weather.  And – although it’s been rainy and gloomy – there are moments of sunshine.

Which lend themselves well to just chillaxin’ at the end of the barn – watching the ponies, scouting for deer, preparing for the figment invasion!

What?!?

Figment invasions are a real thing.

All my Shares goodies arrived on Thursday – so yesterday I set up my chopping/sorting/gathering station.

Chopper in place.  Paper counted/stacked/ready.

Computer spreadsheet handy.

Check check and check.

Table laid out and first paper cut to tweak and finalize placement of stacks.

Something was missing…

What was it…

Oh yea – my chopping-support-animal!

There he is!

Phew!

I saw this cute Corner-Fold card design on the talented Rachel Tessman’s blog and decided to give it a go.  I even used the same Berry Blessings stamp set and bundled Berry Delightful DSP – cuz I love it.  A LOT!  Take a look-see:

I played along with the Anything Goes challenge over at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

I started with a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Pacific Point cardstock, that I scored and folded at 4 1/4″ (just like a regular side-fold card).

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere a piece of Granny Apple Green plaid Berry Delightful DSP to the card front.

Then, using my Paper Trimmer, I cut twice to create the twisting corner element.  You can see how to do it in the video (where I show you how to use Rachel’s Post-It Note trick!) – and here’s a cut-template.

Once the cuts were done, I turned the corner – bringing the top right-hand corner in towards the middle of the card – and using my Bone Folder to burnish the fold.  It’s a lot easier to see in the video. 😉

With a little more Stampin’ Seal, I adhered the turned-down corner to the card front.

I matted another piece of the Berry Delightful DSP on Shaded Spruce and adhered it to the square.

Using the same DSP as on the square – I matted a strip on Shaded Spruce and adhered it across the bottom portion of the card with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White (or Basic White will for sure work!), I stamped the Berry Blessings sentiment in Shaded Spruce and cut it with a Tasteful Labels die.  Then I popped it onto the DSP strip with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I colored a new Opal Round with my Dark Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blend, added it to the card front and the card front was done.

I stamped the blueberry outline image from Berry Blessings in Pacific Point on a piece of Whisper White then added the fill image in stamped-off-once Pacific Point.  I added the leaves outline in Shaded Spruce and then the leaves fill with Granny Apple Green.  I cut it with the large circle die in Tasteful Labels and popped it onto the inside of the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the inside, I added the blueberries and leaves in the corner of a Whisper White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Shaded Spruce mat and into the card base and the card was done!

My Whisper White (or Basic White) Medium Envelope got the Berry Blessings blueberries and leaves on the front…

…and more of the Berry Delightful DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Seriously – is it any wonder that I love this fun fold?  Look at how much of the gorgeous Berry Delightful DSP you get to show off!  And it is SO worth showing off, isn’t it??

With the added bonus of getting it – plus the bundled Berry Blessings stamp set! – for FREE – it’s a deal you’re going to want to get in on!  Just place an order of $100 or more (before shipping & tax) – and this wonderful bundle could be your Sale-A-Bration Pick!!

I hope you like!
