Sneak Peak: Sweets for the Sweet

Stampin up sweets for the sweet circle punch catalog
Not only was the Stampin' Up! Annual Incentive Cruise to Alaska glorious (check out a couple scenic pix at the end of this post), we got a chance to experiment with new Stampin' Up! products.  I assembled this "Amazing Folding Card" (it's a Stampin' Up! card idea) at a Make and Take session using Sweets for the Sweet stamp set (available July 1 with the new catalog release).


  • Finished size (closed) is 4 x 4".  
    • Stampin up sweets for the sweet new catalog fold card idea sample Open size is 8 x 8  and scored (creased with a Bone Folder) as follows:  Fold 8 x 8 Wisteria Wonder Card Stock in half.  Open and turn 90 degrees and fold in half again. 
    • Open and turn 45 degrees and fold with the stamped images on the outside, matching the opposite corners.  Score with  Bone Folder to create to create a triangle. 
    • Open and bring the same two corners together with the folded edges coming to the center to close.
    • The Whisper White panels would be adorable with a photo, a special verse, sentiment or personal note.
    • Stampin up sweets for the sweet circle punch new catalog rubber stamp card ideaThe Wisteria Wonder candy treat (in the "bag") was jazzed up with Dazzling Diamonds.  Just dab a two-way glue pen and sprinkle on your sparkle.  Yum!
