Supplies for Pop Out Bendy Fold Card:

Gingerbread & Peppermint Flip Twist Card

Gingerbread and Peppermint

Measurements & Supplies:

Card base: Basic White CS 12” x 4.75” scored on the long side at 4” and 8”

Real Red CS: 6.5” x 3.75”  (two of these) scored on the long side at 2.75” and lightly at 5.5”

Basic White CS: 2.5” x 3.5” (four of these)

Pear Pizazz CS: 3.75” x 4.5”

Basic White: 3.5” x 4.25”

Designer Paper: 7/8” x 3.5” (two of these)

Designer Paper: 2.5” x 3.5” (two of these)

Gingerbread & Peppermint DSP for tree, snowflake, ornament cut-outs and peppermint candy pieces

Real Red ribbon: 7” piece and two 6” pieces

This shows the panel that goes in the middle – adhere the ribbon first and then the “Merry Christmas” and snowflake white cs pieces go UPSIDE DOWN as shown!
This shows the bottom panel – adhere the ribbon first and then the “happy holidays” and ornament white cs pieces.


  1. For this card, I’ve already adhered the 7/8” x 3.5” strips of designer paper to the Real Red cardstock pieces and attached those panels to the card base with brads.
  2. Before you adhere the stamped white cardstock pieces, please review the video and take a look at these photos so you can see how everything is placed.
  3. The ribbon for each Real Red cardstock panel needs to be adhered first BEFORE you adhere the white stamped cardstock pieces. Use some adhesive and place the ribbon so it forms a “loop” as shown – the ends will be covered by the white cs pieces.
  4. For the bottom Real Read panel, the ribbon will be at the bottom of the cs piece. Then “happy holidays” and the ornament cs piece will be layered onto it.
  5. When you flip the card base over to work on the Real Red cs panel that goes in the middle, you’ll adhere the red ribbon so it forms a “loop” as shown.
  6. VERY IMPORTANT: Adhere the “Merry Christmas” and snowflake white cardstock pieces upside down on this Real Red panel because with the way they flip out of the card, they’ll need to be upside down the way you’re working on it.
  7. Once you have adhered the white cardstock pieces, adhere the red or pear pizazz designer paper pieces to the other side of the Real Red cardstock panel. (the portion under the snowflake and under the ornament piece).

The next step is to adhere the base together, working around your Real Red panels. You’ll want to fold the card base so that you’re putting each Real Red panel inside two white panels. You should end up with white panels on the front and back and the folded Real Red panels “sandwiched inside.” (See video about the 12-minute mark)

9. Use liquid glue on the corners as shown. You want to give the Real Red panel room to pivot on the brad.

10. Glue the other two panels together the same way, only applying liquid glue in the corners, allowing the other Real Red panel to pivot.

11. Once you have the card base glued together and it has had a few minutes to set with you pressing it together or putting something heavy on it to seal it, do a test where you pull out the panels. You want to make sure which white panel to glue your card front pieces on so the card is right-side-up.

12. For the card front, use Scotch tape to adhere the longest Red ribbon around the white cardstock piece and then adhere that to the Pear Pizazz cardstock. Adhere that to the card front.

Adhere one of your tree/ornament/snowflake shapes to the card front near the red ribbon, tucking the left side of it under the ribbon, and use pop dots for the second one.

13. Adhere the peppermint candies all around the card front.

14. Add Wonderful Gems embellishments and use a glue dot to attach the Real Red bow.

2. Adhere the 5.25” x 4” piece of designer paper to the inside of the card.

3. Adhere the 4” x 2.5” piece of designer paper to the folded back card front as shown.

4. Fold the Mint Macaron CS along its score lines in a mountain and then a valley fold. (It’s going to be the same fold as the Misty Moonlight base, which also has a mountain and then a valley.)

5. Adhere the White CS pieces to the Mint panels, with the two blank ones on the first and second panel and the Merry Christmas message on the third panel.

6. Close this Mint CS piece and adhere only the last panel of it to the center of 5.25” x 4” designer paper on the inside of the card.

7. Lift up the first panel of the Mint CS and adhere the back left half only to the folded back card front flap as shown in the picture. This forms your “Double Z” card.

8. Adhere the “Joy” ornament diecut to the Blushing Bride ornament diecut with liquid glue or your adhesive runner.

9. Use pop dots to adhere that Joy/Blushing Bride ornament to the card front.

10. Use liquid glue or your adhesive runner to adhere the Misty Moonlight ornament to the second panel of your card.

Inspired Thoughts with Blackberry Beauty Fun Fold

I couldn’t wait for my order of Blackberry Beauty specialty DSP to arrive so I could use the Inspired Thoughts bundle with this paper. The gold foil in this Specialty paper looks great when used with the Inspiring Canopy dies! I love the random flecks of gold in the trees as well as the other rich colors. Read on to see how easy it is to make this card.

Give it a Whirl Penguin Place Card

Here is a card example of using the Give it a Whirl Dies, the Penguin Place bundle along with new Sale-A-Bration (SAB) Paper. I love interactive cards and also love getting free items to make projects! This card uses the Penquin Place SAB paper, free with a $50 purchase until Sept. 30 or while supplies last. Another card example at the bottom of this blog uses the Peaceful Prints–both equally adorable!

Give it a Whirl


  • Basic White cardstock: 5.5″x 8.5, scored at 4.25″ along the 8.5″ side; (1) 3.75″ x 2 1/8″; (1) piece for 3 3/4″ square piece for dial die cut; piece for 1 3/8″ circle; piece for penguin punch
  • Fresh Freesia cardstock: 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
  • Penguin Place Designer Series Paper: 4.25″ x 5.25″
  • White Glitter Paper: pieces for glacier, snowflake and icicle dies cuts; optional piece for hat and scarf
  • Basic Black cardstock: piece for penguin body
  • Pumpkin Pie cardstock: piece for feet punch

Preparation for Give it a Whirl card:

  • Using the Penguin Punch, punch the penguin body from Basic Black cardstock, the middle of the penguin with Basic White and the feet with Pumpkin Pie cardstock. Next, adhere pieces together. Note: the feet look good in front on the white or behind the black penguin body. Stamp the eyes in Tuxedo Black ink and the nose in Pumpkin Pie ink.
  • Make a circle template for stamping the penguins onto to the spinning wheel. This template will prevent the extra ink from getting in the other windows. To make the template, die cut the spinning wheel from Basic White cardstock and then die cut a window out of it, like Figure 1.
Give it a Whirl
Figure 1.
  • Next, die cut the DSP using the Give it a Whirl Frame. Punch a 1 3/8″ circle in Basic White cardstock.
  • Die cut the icicles and glacier from the Polar Bear dies, and the snowflake from the So Many Snowflakes Dies using white glitter paper (non-SU).
  • Then die cut a spinning wheel from Basic White cardstock. Place the template (made earlier) over the spinning wheel, by lining up the open window with the embossed window frame on the spinning wheel. Stamp the penguin in Tuxedo Black ink so that his head and part of his shoulder is stamped in the open window. (Note: the excess ink from his body will stamp on the template and keep the spinning wheel clean of excess ink.) See Figure 2.
Give it a Whirl
Figure 2.
  • Move the template so the open window is in the next embossed window area on the spinning wheel. Stamp again the penguin head and partial shoulders.
  • Move the template so the open window is in the last embossed window area on the spinning wheel. Stamp sentiment in Fresh Freesia ink.
  • Now you can remove the template and stamp a hat in Fresh Freesia on one penguin and antlers in Soft Suede on the other penguin and any other things you would like (for example, there are snowflakes that come with this stamp set, too!)
  • Punch a small hole in the center of the 1 3/8″ circle.
  • Take the 2.25″ x 3.75″ Basic White Cardstock and place the hill die from the Polar Bears dies at the very top along the 3.75″ side to create a hill. Then, emboss this piece with the Bark 3D embossing folder so the bark is going horizontal along the 3.75″ side.


  • Fold the Basic White cardstock base in half. Adhere and center the piece of Fresh Freesia to the cardbase.
  • Place a brad through the front of the spinning wheel and through the center of the 1 3/8″ circle and lightly close brad. (Note: if the brad is too tight, the wheel will not spin freely). Put 2 dimensionals on the back of the 1 3/8″ circle. This 1 3/8″ circle will allow the spinning wheel to move more freely, as shown in Figure 3.
Give it a Whirl
Figure 3.
  • Set the spinning wheel behind the DSP, and line up the holes on the front of the DSP and the brad. Hold these 2 pieces in place and turn the DSP over so you can tell where to place the dimensionals on the DSP, making sure not to place a dimensional where the spinner will be turning.
  • Only take the backings off the dimensionals on the 1 3/8″ circle. Then hold the DSP and the spinner together and center onto the 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ Fresh Freesia cardstock. This allows you to place where the spinner properly. See Figure 4.
Give it a Whirl
Figure 4.
  • Now take the backings off the dimensionals on the back of the DSP, by keeping the brad and hole on DSP centered, place onto the Fresh Freesia cardstock. See Figure 5.
Give it a Whirl
Figure 5.
  • Now it’s time for the rest of the decorations! Adhere the snow hill at the bottom of the DSP.
  • Next, adhere the glacier with dimensionals on the front of the card. Adhere the icicles to the upper left part of the DSP. Place the penguin on top of the glacier with dimensionals. Adhere the glitter snowflake over the hole on the front of the card.

Here’s some alternative colors for additional ideas. I fussy cut the hat and scarf by stamping them on the back of glitter paper and then cutting them out. I think they should all have hats and scarves to keep them warm!

Creative Inking Blog Hop: The Dies Have It

Creative inking blog hop

I’ve been a stamper for a long time (30+ years–wow!) and when I say ‘The dies have it’, it means the dies have what it takes to make the card. In my opinion, the coordinating dies for Stampin’ Up stamp sets takes card making to a whole new level!! The new Pansy Patch bundle is one of those sets I fell in love with immediately. The die cuts for the pansy is so realistic with the embossed images that are made when you die cut the pieces. This card is an example of using mostly dies. Read on how to make this fun fold card using the Pansy dies.

Pansy dies


  • Gorgeous Grape Cardstock: 5.5″ x 8.5″, scored at 4.25″ along 8.5″ side; cardstock for 4 die cut pieces
  • Basic White: 5.25″ x 8.25″ scored at 2.25″ & 4.25″ along the 8.25″ side, cardstock for center piece of pansy, cardstock for a white circle die cut
  • Highland Heather Cardstock: cardstock for 2 pansy petals
  • Garden Green Cardstock: cardstock for 2 leaves
  • Evening Evergreen Cardstock: cardstock for 2 die cut leaf overlays
  • Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper: 4″x5.25″


  • Die cut in Gorgeous Grape cardstock the outline of the pansy (3 pieces total), middle of pansy and small flower piece for inside. Using Gorgeous Grape cardstock, die cut the largest scalloped circle from the layering Circles die set. Then die cut a circle from the center of the scallop to create a frame.
  • Next, die cut in Highland Heather cardstock the 2 petals and the small flower for the inside of the card.
  • Using Basic White cardstock, die cut the middle piece of the pansy and sponge daub with Daffodil Delight ink in the center of the white. Also die cut a Basic White circle, using the same size circle used to make the scalloped frame.
  • Then die cut the leaves in Garden Green cardstock and the 2 overlays in Evening Evergreen. Die cut the stem for the inside of the card in Garden Green.
  • Stamp sentiment in Gorgeous Grape and die cut with Stitched Rectangle.
  • Adhere the DSP to the front of the Gorgeous Grape cardstock card base. Die cut a circle through the front of card (slightly more to the top so that you have room for the sentiment). (Note: Use the same size circle used to create the scallop frame.) Note: you will not use these circle die cuts on this card.
Pansy dies

Assembly for Pansy Dies card:

  • Assemble the pansy and leaves and adhere to the white die cut circle.
  • Pansy Petals
    • Center and adhere the 3.75″ section of the 5.25″ x 8.25″ piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape card base, making sure the scored section is to the right. On the first score line, fold the Basic White cardstock as a valley (or to the left) and fold the second score line as a mountain (or to the right)..
    • Close the card. Place adhesive on the 1/2 circle of white folded cardstock you can see underneath the circle cutout on the front. Place the circle with the pansy through the circle on the front of the card, onto the adhesive on the white folded cardstock.
    • Assemble and place the small pansy bloom on the inside of the card.
    • Adhere Gorgeous Grape scalloped frame around circle cut out on front of card. Adhere the sentiment to the front of the card with dimensionals.
