Just Add Color Guest Stamper

My daughter, Ariane, is on the board of her Hall Council at Georgia Tech. When she was home for spring break she wanted to make some thank you cards for the people who helped out throughout the year. Just Add Color Designer Series Paper was the perfect choice for these “housing” thank you cards.

Ariane used Stampin’ Blends to color the different houses and then fussy cut each one out.  She loved using the new Stamparatus which made adding the sentiment a breeze!  Here’s a few photos.

The Whisper White note cards & envelopes made putting this project together a breeze.  The cards are prescored and ready to go. Ariane used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the houses to her cards.  Here’s a look at all 13 of her colorful cards!

Crafting Forever Flip Fold Card

Crafting Forever is one of my favorite stamp sets in the annual catalog and I am thrilled it will carry over to the new catalog.  I have used it to make cards, magnets, bookmarks, and many gifts.  I also love to stamp my envelopes with some of the different stamps and sentiments from this set. It was the perfect choice for my swap cards for OnStage.

Stampin Up Crafting Forever fun fold friend card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

If you follow my blog you know I love fun fold cards. I used the “artsy” paper from Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper, my Stampin’ Blends, and several different stamps from the set for my flip fold card. Here’s some photos showing how it opens as well as how the flap adheres on the back.

I had so much fun stamping and coloring these cards.  I chose my colors for the card base from the colors in the designer series paper: crushed curry, emerald envy, and flirty flamingo.

These are pretty simple to make.  When I am mass producing I like to do everything in steps.  I cut all my cardstock, then I stamped, punched, and colored.  Final step was fussy cutting the little stamp blocks and assembling. Here’s the measurements I got from Rachel Tessman:

Card Base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored in half at 4 1/4, scrap to punch 2 1/4″ circle

Basic Black: 4 1/4 x 3 to layer DSP,  1 1/2 x 7 scored and folded at 4 1/4 for the flap

DSP: 4 x 2 3/4

Whisper White: 4 x 5 1/4 for inside , scraps to stamp and punch two 2″ circles and block

I stamped the sentiments and images in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink so I could color the images with my Stampin’ Blends. To assemble, adhere the DSP to the basic black layer and adhere to card base. Wrap the flap around the card and make sure it is centered on the front before adhering the flap on the back of the card.  Layer the stamped image on the circle and adhere to the front flap.  Open the card and adhere the sentiment over the circle on the inside. To keep the card closed, adhere the block image with a Stampin’ Dimensional so the flap can tuck in slightly.

Moon Baby for Tic Tac Toe #42

Stampin Up Moon Baby gift card holder baby card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My niece is pregnant with her first child so I know I will be needing a card for her baby shower.  I always love to give books as gifts and Kohl’s sells books and stuffed animals on behalf of their Kohl’s Cares program.  I love to purchase these as 100% of the net profit from the sale is donated to charitable organizations including children’s hospital initiatives that support healthy development, safety, wellness and chronic disease management. When I see my favorites I buy several to have on hand to give as gifts as they are so reasonably priced at just $5 each. Today’s card holds a gift card and goes with one of my children’s favorite bedtime stories, Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown.

I used the Moon Baby stamp set to create my card for this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  I went down the first column with animal, baby, layers. ( It also works on the diagonal with stripes, punch, layers as I used the banner punch on the ends of my sentiment layer.) This card measures 4 1/4 x 9 1/2 and is scored at 1 1/2 and 4. It has a pocket to hold a gift card inside.

I love making my cards and gifts coordinate!  That’s the beauty of a handmade card.

It’s hard to tell in the photo but I embossed the background layer with stars to go with the cover of the book.  I colored the animals with Stampin’ Blends and popped the banner with Dimensionals.  If you need a gift idea for a new mom to be, I highly recommend this book!  Do you have a favorite book you like to read your children or grandchildren? I would love for you to leave a comment below and share your story.
