Sun Prints DSP for Shades of Blue

Inkspirations Blog Hop June 2022

Hello my stamping friends.

Welcome to the June edition of the Inkspirations Blog Hop.  This month Angie gave us a color challenge - SHADES OF BLUE!  

So of course, I pulled out the new Sunprints DSP from the Annual Catalog.  As soon as I saw this paper, I knew I had to have it.  I can remember making sun prints in art class in grade school with that special light sensitive paper and exposing the layers to the sunshine.  So cool!  

Here’s an image of the paper package and the samples from the annual catalog!

Today my project is a mix and match collection of stamps, dies and the designer series paper.  I used the Forever Fern Stamp Set and Forever Flourishing Dies, instead of the bundle set. I felt that the new set in the Sun Prints Bundle was beautiful, but similar enough to Forever Ferns that I skipped buying the stamp set..  I also wanted to show off multiple samples of the DSP so I used a funfold design I recently encountered.

If you have visited my blog before, you know I love to do a Stampin’ Show & Tell demonstration for you.  So I have one for you today.  I’ll take you through the card design and put it all together for you.  Remember, you are welcome to subscribe to my YouTube Channel if you enjoy the videos, that way you will be notified when I share something new.


I have a full photo tutorial for you below.  Starting with the Parts & Pieces, then the Fun Fold Template, followed by the stamped panels, and then putting it all together. If you  like to see the progression of the project take a peek at the photos.  Remember to leave me comments at the end, tell me what you liked here today, and if I inspired you to do something similar.

Then, hop right along to the next stamper in our blog hop today.  Enjoy Judith Patterson'sproject , and please leave us comments.  We love to hear from you.

Happy Stampin,

Photo Tutorial:

Prepare all your sections and pieces for the project. 

Follow the template below for scoring and folding the base card.

Stamp all the sections for your project and let them dry while you assemble the section on the base of the card.  I used Night of Navy ink on the Basic White cardstock, and Craft White ink on the Night of Navy cardstock.

Now assemble the base by adhering the 4 sections of DSP to the accordion portion of the card base. Then the liner section.

Now complete the pop up section of the card.

There is the only part you need to be really careful about.  Before you add adhesive to the center pop up section, decide where you want it to fit on the base.  Here I centered it from top to bottom, and also allowed to sit in from the right edge of the card a little bit.

I added the adhesive direction to the accordion section of the base, not the back of the pop up section.  Why? Because if you add too much adhesive, the backs will stick together.  Just add a small amount of glue to the area that will be touching the back of the pop up portion of our card.

Once you have the front panel attached, then open the card and repeat the same process for the inner section of the pop up.
