March Shoebox with Joy Meadows as our Hostess

“Stack, Slice & Shuffle” is a fun technique that Joy taught us at our last shoebox event.  It is like a quilt card, and with a stack of three designer series papers you can have three different looking cards in no time at all.



Joy used the Butterfly Kisses Designer Series Paper (DSP) on a black layer with a white base.


  • Base:  White, 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
  • Border:  Black, 5 3/8 X 4 1/8 for a 1/16 reveal
  • Stack of 3 different DSPs:    5 1/4 X 4
    • Slice:  Cut through all 3 at the same time at a diagonal about 1/2″ over on bottom and about 1″ down on right; set aside the smaller pile of 3
    • Slice again:  Cut through the other pile of 3 at a diagonal about 1/2″ over and to about the middle
      • Note:  The 1/2″ over and 1″ down are not necessarily perfect measurements, diagonals can be random
    • Shuffle: You should now have three separate piles.
      • Leave one pile as is
      • Remove the top piece of the second pile and put it on the bottom
      • Remove two pieces of the third pile and put them on the bottom
    • Base of your shuffled cards (X3):  white, 5 1/4 X 4
    • Adhere your three separate patterns to the bases
  • Embellish with a die cut mounted to cover where all three DSPs meet; Joy used Stampin’ Up! Deckled Circles with the largest being 1 3/4 and the smaller is 1 3/8 popped up on the larger
  • Stamp ‘Hello’ in Memento Black; Hello is from SU Irresistable Blooms
  • Inside Strip: DSP, 3/4 X 4
  • Butterflies: Black to match the border; SU Butterfly Gala Punch for one large and one small for inside; use a black marker to make antennae
  • Brass Butterflies around the greeting and a sparkly gem on butterfly complete the embellishments

Time to make a stack of Christmas cards to get ahead of the December push

That would be good, Sal!  If I did two sets each month I would be ahead of the game.

Thank you, Joy, for a fun new technique!

Joy had an additional card for us to make at the event!

The picture doesn’t do it justice.  The base is soft succulent with a very vanilla layer embossed with a cobblestone looking embossing folder.  The dies for the circles and the greeting are the Stampin’ Up! Everyday Details Dies.  The large circle is 3 1/4 and the top circle is 2 1/2.  The bird is from the Flight & Airy DSP from Stampin’ Up.  The glittery gem exactly matches the soft succulent.  The happy birthday greeting is Stampin’ Up!’s  Birthday Blossoms stamp set on a 2 3/4 X 1 3/8 rectangle in the Everyday Details Dies.

Another beautiful design by Joy Meadows!

Thank you for stopping by today!
