Good morning my crafty friends!!! It's the last Monday of the month and that means it's time for the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop once again! YAYA!!!  This month's theme is probably my favorite of all time: FANCY FOLDS!  Each of the blogs you visit today will not only have a fabulously fantastic fancy fold card, but they will also include a printable tutorial!! How awesome is that?!

Not only do I have a super cute Fancy Fold card (and tutorial) to share with you today, but I'm also giving you a super sneak peek at upcoming FREE Sale-A-Bration items!! WOOT WOOT!! SNEAKY PEEKY!!! YAYAYA!!!

YAYAY!  You'll be able to visit my website on the first to check out the HOT OFF THE PRESSES Holiday 2022 Catalog as well as the SAB brochure.

Hippest Hippos Stamp Set

Hippo Dies

Each of the Blogs (listed below) in the hop, will have a fantastic Fancy Fold Card to share with you. They'll also have a printable PDF tutorial for their project! Pretty cool huh?  You'll get a really nice collection of Fancy Fold tutorials absolutely FREE just for hanging out with us today! 

For my project, you'll need: 

* Flirty Flamingo Cardstock 6"x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" for base
* Flirty Flamingo Cardstock 4" x 4", scored at 1/2" for flap
* Flirty Flamingo Cardstock 3"x 3", cut with 2nd largest Scalloped Circles Die
* Basic White Cardstock 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" for inside panel
* Basic White Cardstock – 2 3⁄4” x 2 3⁄4” (die cut with 2nd largest Stylish Shapes Die)
* Basic White Cardstock – scrap for stamping & die cut dancing Hippo
* DSP – 1 5⁄8” x 5 3⁄8”, 3 3⁄8” x 3 7⁄8”
* 2021-2023 In-Color Opal Rounds
* White Crinkle Seam Binding Ribbon (42")

* Stamp hippo & sentiment on inside panel in Memento ink. Color hippo & die cut dancing hippo with
Stampin’ Blends markers.
* Glue 1⁄2” strip of 4”x4” Flirty Flamingo Cardstock to the right backside of inside panel, then glue inside panel to inside of card base.
* Attach DSP strips to coordinating spots on card front.
* Using a Blending Brush and Pool Party ink, create a spotlight of color in the middle of the Basic White Stitched Circle.
* Adhere circle to Scalloped Circle with Stampin’ Seal.
* Attach entire circle piece to the 4”x4” panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
* Add a few In-Color Opal Rounds to panel for embellishment.
* Cut two 21” lengths of White Crinkle Ribbon, then shred each up the middle into two skinny strips (making four strips). Holding all the strips together, tie into a bow and attach with a Mini Glue Dot to finish off the card.

I absolutely LOVE the bow on this card. It's a super cute one I learned from my sweet stampin' friend Tammy Wilson who makes the best bows ever! 

I think this card is just as adorable as it can be. Now I just need to decide who I'm going to send it to!
