Three on Thursday April 21, 2022 The 3 S's - Stack, Slice, & Shuffle

 Hello Stampers!

I was introduced to this technique by another Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator, Cindy Brumbaugh. When I seen how easy this was I decided it would be a great way to use retired Designer Series Paper. Cindy called it Stack, Cut, & Shuffle, I am calling it Stack, Slice, & Shuffle or the 3 S's for short.

I made several sets using different DSP and each one is different. This technique can be used for a simple card or you can add ribbon or other embellishments to dress them up.  You can use any sentiment for any occasions.


Card base cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"

4 different designs of DSP cut 4" x 5 1/4"

You then want to cut the DSP at one time at 2 3/4" - rotate this stack and cut again at 3"

The long strip you cut off you will rotate and cut it at 2"

Make sure you keep all the stacks in the same order as you cut them.

I found it easier if I laid the 4 stacks in front of me and started with the smallest pieces in the upper right corner. I then began to shuffle, move the top piece to the back of the stack, then on the other narrow stack move the top two pieces to the back of the stack. The last stack to shuffle is on the bottom left side and you move the top 3 pieces to the back of the stack. Now you have 4 different designs.

I laid the pieces on the card base to see how it looked before I adhered the pieces down. You will have a 1/8" border around your card.
