Dandy Designs Fun Fold


I created this Cute and Simple Fun Fold using the new Cane Weave 3D embossing folder w/Granny Apple Green - a great spring color, I might add!  

Also, I can’t get enough of the Free Saleabration Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper. It’s still available for a free more days. 

I used the stately Lovely & Lasting stamping bundle by Stampin’ Up!  Great looking Card that is so easy to create! 

You can see how this card was assembled in my You Time video here:



Stampin' Up! has refreshed the Clearance Rack. And...they've added some stamp sets to the Clearance Rack! Hurry and head over to check out the offerings.

Items on the Clearance Rack are available while supplies last...So don't delay...these items usually sell out pretty quickly. 

Here's a link to my online store:

I hope you find some cool goodies!

Warm Welcome "Side-Step" card

Warm Welcome Side Step Card

Did you get a chance to see the super cute fun fold card from my 
Facebook Live video?

I made this very cute (easy side-step) card using the Welcome Window stamp bundle in the new Mini Catty and it is (CAT-ty), too! 

The card was inspired by a post I saw on Pinterest (sorry, I can’t remember the name).  I have made this design previously (the easy side step card), but I loved the little cat in the doorway, so this is my version.

There are so many cute features in this bundle, in addition to the 
door and lively sentiments as well!

Warm Welcome Bundle (160704)

If you want to see how I created this easy fun fold card, you can see the video below or watch a replay of the Live on Facebook at: 

You can also view it on You Tube:

I hope you enjoy this cute card and the adorable Warm Welcome 
Stamping Bundle (160704) by Stampin' Up!

Thanks so much for watching!

Ideas Blog Hop Feb 2023 "That's So Suite of You"

Want to earn a free tutorial?  With over 80 pages of instruction?  Keep reading!

Welcome back for another IDEAS (International Demos Exciting Artistic Stampin') blog hop - where a group of creative demonstrators from around the world collaborate on a huge tutorial each month, chock full of creativity!

Our February, blog hop theme is based on Suites from the catalogs, therefore, this hop is entitled “That’s so Suite of You.” Cute, huh?  I love the product coordination at Stampin' Up.   It's one of my favorite things about Stampin' Up.  The paper, stamps, color coordination in each suite takes the guess work out choosing what goes together.  And often times there are other products that will coordinate as well.  It's just amazing! *heart*

My February contribution features the Regency Park Suite from the new current January - April mini catalog.  I can NOT get enough of the Designer Series Paper and the flower punch. Somehow that Mango Melody just really pops.  Especially with the Night of Navy!  I am a bold colors kinda girl so this one grabbed me from the beginning.  This suite has two different bundles - Sentimental Park and Petal Park.  I chose the Petal Park, which is an image stamp set and challenged myself to create projects that feature images on the front of the projects only.  The Sentimental Park is the other stamp bundle in the suite that contains words.

Here's our collage, which is a sneak peak from each designer in this edition of the tutorial bundle.  See it here:

Here's a peek at one of my projects from this month:

Each tutorial features at least one card or sometimes a 3D project, some include multiples. It is full of inspiring creations from different designers!
