Oh my goodness… I received some preorder items from the Jan-April Mini Catalog along with a few Jan/Feb Sale-a-bration items and I’m having SO MUCH FUN! Today’s card features Dandy Designs DSP and the Adorable Owls stamp set from the Sale-a-bration catalog – AND it’s a super easy Fun Fold. Let’s take a peek…

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Fun Fold

Isn’t this little guy just the cutest! And the sentiment ‘Hoot! Hoot!’ is also from the Adorable Owls stamp set. Actually it’s a partial sentiment… meaning I used some retired Washi tape to cover the part I didn’t want to use. I also used some White 6×6 Glimmer Paper for the upper DSP. The other DSP is called Dandy Designs DSP and is a large pack of 30 sheets of 12×12. The dots are the reverse of the sideways stripes. :O) Let me share with you how to make this fun fold design…

  • Cut the card base (here it is Balmy Blue) 5 1/2 x 7 1/4 and score @ 4 1/4
  • Cut another panel of Balmy Blue 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 (that’s the front largest square)
  • Cut DSP:
    • 2 3/4 x 5 1/4 (here I used the White 6×6 Glimmer Paper)
    • 4 x 5 1/4 for inside panel
    • 3 1/4 x 3 14
  • Adhere panels to the appropriate places with adhesive of choice.
  • Stamp the owl from Adorable Owls stamp set in Memento Black ink on Basic White panel
  • Color owl with Stampin’ Blends
    • Light & Dark Soft Suede for the body of the owl
    • Dark Daffodil Delight for the eyes
    • Dark Basic Black – for the smaller portion of the eyes
    • Light Basic Black for the beak + Color Lifter for highlighting
    • Dark Pumpkin Pie for the bow tie
  • Chalk Marker (white) for the eye highlight
  • Die cut owl panel with Stylish Shapes Dies
  • Adhere owl to the square panel, centering, with dimensionals
  • Stamp the sentiment from Adorable Owls stamp set, covering unwanted portion, in Memento Black
  • Adhere to square panel with mini dimensionals. The right end of the sentiment will need stacked dimensionals
  • Adhere completed square to top panel only
  • Add Fine Sparkle Adhesive-Backed Gems in Balmy Blue
Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Fun Fold.2

For the inside… cut another Basic White Square 3 1/4 x 3 1/4. Stamp owl as listed above & color. Stamp sentiment using the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Memento Black ink. To adhere… open card, lay this panel on the upper panel right side down & upside down, centering it on the square. Add adhesive and close the bottom portion of the card on the piece. Bingo – attached properly 😀👍

For the envelope… more of the same Balmy Blue & White stripe pattern from Dandy Designs DSP – on the flap of course. I chose not to stamp anything on the envelope front. This card was sent already… to a man friend who recently had surgery. I hope he likes it – and he feels better too!

Now, what you need to know about this fun fold… this was a landscape design. It can also be portrait. I’ll share one of those in a couple of days 😁

The Balmy Blue and also the Basic White card stocks are part of the 2022-2023 Annual catalog. The Blends, Memento Black ink and Chalk Marker are in that same catalog as is Inspired Thoughts stamp set. The Fine Sparkle Adhesive-Backed Gems and White Glimmer 6×6 are in the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog – as Real Red & White 6×6 Glimmer pack. These are all available for purchase through my online store (see below). If you do not have a demonstrator & need catalogs, please reach out to me.
