X is for Box

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ve been sharing a variety of cards for every occasion. Today’s card is a fun fold boX card. I love to make fun fold cards and this one is not only different, it’s really quick & easy to make!

Stampin Up! Perennial Essence and Beauty Abounds fun fold box card idea for a friend - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Materials and Measurements

  • Card base:  5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Mossy Meadow cardstock scored at 2, 4, 6, and 8.
  • Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper – Cut 4 strips 1 3/4 x 5 1/4.  (I stamped my sentiment on one of the panels. You could use whisper white cardstock if your DSP is too busy or dark.)
  • Basic Black cardstock to cut Butterfly Beauty dies.

I used a strip of Tear & Tape along the 1/2 inch side to adhere the box. The butterfly dies are attached to the card with a glue dot on each butterfly along the center fold line. This card will display nicely on a shelf.  I love how it looks like the butterflies are floating.  Here’s more views of this fun card.

W is for Wedding for the Pals Blog Hop

Blog Hop Badge August 2019

Welcome to the Pals’ August Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “Special Occasions”  – cards or projects that adds beauty to the special occasions we all love to make cards for! You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I’ve been sharing cards for each letter of the alphabet in my ABC Card Series. (Make sure you follow my blog so you don’t miss out on cards for every occasion from A to Z!) Today I have a wedding card idea using the Piece of Cake Stamp Set and Lovely Flowers Die.

Stampin' Up! Piece of Cake and Lovely Flowers Wedding card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Lovely Flowers Die adds that special touch to this wedding card.
Here’s the simple recipe to make this wedding “cake”:

  • Card Base : 4 1/4 x 11 Petal Pink scored at 5 1/2
  • Die Cut Layer: 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White cut with the Lovely Flowers Die
  • DSP layer: 2 x 4 Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper
  • Scallop Circle Die : 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 Petal Pink
  • Stitched Circle Die: 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 Whisper White

I stamped the cake in Blackberry Bliss ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White and colored the flowers with Petal Pink and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. The cake stand is stamped on Smokey Slate with Smokey Slate ink. I punched the cake and stand using the Cake Builder Punch.  (You can purchase the stamp set and punch as a bundle and save 10%.)

The card is quick & easy to assemble once you have all the pieces cut. I adhered the DSP to the Die layer and then adhered it to the card base. I placed the cake and stand on the stitched die where I wanted them and drew a light pencil line above the cake to stamp MR&MRS.  I stamped the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss then adhered the pieces covering the pencil line with the cake. The stamped layer is popped up with Dimensionals.  I added a simple twine bow with a Glue Dot and 3 tiny rhinestones for a little bling.

I usually make more than one card when I’m creating and I like to try out different designs.  So here’s the great debate…Top or Bottom (for the Lovely Flowers Die)? Twine or Ribbon? Here’s both side by side – you decide! Leave a comment and let me know which one you prefer.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, September 11, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share their “It’s the Sentiment that Counts” projects. Don’t miss the fun!

V is for Vellum

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ll be sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! Have you ever tried using vellum as your card base? Oh my gosh…I totally fell in love with this vellum card idea by Wendy Lee! Here’s the card she designed.

Stampin' Up! Celebrate With Cake Vellum Birthday Card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s how it looks when you open it!

Stampin' Up! Celebrate With Cake Vellum Birthday Card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s the simple recipe if you would like to recreate this card:

  • Vellum card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.
  • Seaside Spray: 3 1/3 x 4 1/2 Cut 2 to adhere inside card base with Snail Adhesive. *Adhere inside back layer first.
  • Whisper White: 2 3/4 x 4 (Inside stamped layer), 2 1/2 square to stamp and punch flowers on front (Use 2″ Circle Punch).
  • Adhere circle to Doily. Add layers to card front with adhesive.
  • Adhere ~3″ of ribbon to card front with Snail.
  • Stamp sentiment from Celebrate with Cake stamp set in Night of Navy ink onto scrap of Seaside Spray cardstock. Punch with 1 1/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. Adhere with dimensionals.
  • Open card and apply adhesive to inside card front behind layers. *Be sure adhesive is placed only along the center of inside layer so it will not show through the vellum on the card front. Place second piece of Seaside Spray on top of layers inisde so Seaside Spray layers are aligned.  Close card front to adhere Seaside Spray layer to inside card front.
