What is a SIP? It means: Stamps, Ink & Paper. You will often find demonstrators of papercrafts (card makers, scrapbookers, junk journalist, etc.) using this acronym.

SIP cards are so well loved because you don’t need a lot of supplies or time to make them.

What is a CASE? This one seems to be exclusive to us Stampin’Up® demonstrators. And it is probably our very favorite thing about Stampin’Up®. It means Copy And Share Everything. Of course we don’t exactly copy other people’s work but we use it to inspire. Sometimes it will be the colors, sometimes the shapes, sometime the stamp and die sets and sometimes it is how we make videos or how we do classes. We (Stampin’Up demonstrators) are passionate about sharing everything. We take these things and put our own spin on them and try to find new ways to share.

I have made a SIP card for you today that I CASEd from the Stampin’Up® Annual catalog. For today’s card, I pretty much took the exact design from the Annual Catalog but I changed the colors and the greeting. By doing so I changed the “feel” of the card.

Pretty Peacock Card Stock
Basic White Card Stock
Glorious Gingham Designer Series Paper (15.2cm x 15.2cm)
Basic Gray Stampin Pad
Stampin Dimensionals
Four Pack Tinsel Gems (because, shiny)


  • Cut the Pretty Peacock Card Stock in half lengthways to measure 10.5cm x 29.7cm. Score half way on the long side at 14.85cm.
  • Cut a rectange of Basic White Cardstock to 12cm x 6.5cm. If you are using a card liner, cut a piece of the Basic white to 14.2cm x 9.8cm for the inside. You will need a small scrap of white to stamp your greeting.
  • Cut your plaid paper to 9cm in length. Set aside the other piece to use in another project. Cut three strips approximately 5cm wide (give or take the extra 2cm of the width of the paper) out of this 9cm length paper. I did not want to waste any of this pretty paper so my sections weren’t exactly even in width. Your three pieces should all be 9cm in length and a little over 5cm in width.
  • Arrange the three strips across the front of the card base and glue down. I sent mine dancing with some overlap. But if you prefer you can line them up evenly behind your focal point.
  • Now stamp your focal point onto the 12cm x 6.5cm white. I stamped my images in a row but you can stamp them anyway you wish. Next stamp and cut out your greating, pop it up with dimentionals and affix to the 12cm x 6.5cm focal point. I added a tinsel gem to the center of the flower because I like shiny, but this is totally optional.
  • Glue the 12cm x 6.5cm focal point to the front of your card and Voile La! I hope you enjoy making this card and more so I hope you enjoy putting your spin on this design.
