R is for Real Red DSP

Welcome to the ABC’s with DSP!  This month I am featuring projects showcasing Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper. Today I am showcasing Real Red from the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper. Red is one of my absolute favorite colors! I have touches of red in every room in my house (except my daughters “Paris” themed bedroom) and I won’t tell you how many different red tops I own!  I love how Stampin’ Up! paired Real Red with crumb cake , early espresso, and whisper white in these designs.


Today’s card was sent to me from my new friend and fellow demonstrator, Ramsey. We got together last month for lunch and an afternoon of paper crafting and it was like we had known each other forever!  We had so much fun!  She sent me this adorable card and I have been waiting to showcase it.  (I am trying to convince Ramsey she should start a blog because if I can do it ANYONE can!  LOL)  She makes beautiful cards and projects and I felt honored to be on the receiving end of this cutie!

These gingerbread men are so stinkin’ cute! And I love the way she punched the DSP for their bowties.  Ramsey is such an enabler…I had to add this Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set and Cookie Cutter Builder Punch to my last order ( I ordered it as a Bundle and saved 10%!).  I know my Pre-K students will love getting little treat bags with these guys as tags! I make gingerbread cookies every year for the kids to decorate and I think I will fill little bags with assorted candies for them to use on their cookies. How cute will that be with these guys on the bag?!

Fun Fold Friday…Easel Card

Stampin Up Fun Fold Christmas photo card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp


It’s Christmas in July!  For Fun Fold Friday this week I thought I would share a Christmas card from “Christmas Past”.  I usually start thinking about what I want to make for our Christmas card around this time of year.  We send out A LOT of Christmas cards each year so I “try” to get an early start even though I always seem to end up racing around last minute to get them out.  This is an easy card to mass produce!  I absolutely love easel cards! Here’s the details how to make one:

Cut your card stock at 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Score at 5 1/2″ and 8 1/2″.  I attached our family photo to a layer of whisper white card stock that measures 4″ x 5 1/4″.  Put adhesive on the bottom portion ONLY of the photo (or stamped image) when you adhere it to the card base. You want adhesive to stay below the score line so your card will stand up when opened. Here’s a view from the side and back of the card.

I stamped and layered the sentiment and attached it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  This provides the support for your card when it’s displayed. When the card is closed you wouldn’t know it was a special fun fold.  I like that it’s a surprise.

Start thinking about your holiday cards.  Stampin’ Up! Bonus Days is a great time to stock up on the supplies you need. Click  HERE to check out the Christmas Suite in my online shop. It’s open 24/7.

Hope you have a wonderful day!
