Card Swap Inspiration – Day 1

The swap cards were mailed out last week so hopefully everyone who participated received a card in the mail. The collection of cards I’m sharing today might not all have current Stampin’ Up! products, but every card gives great ideas for color combinations, layouts, and techniques. Enjoy the inspiration from these amazing crafters!

Celebrate Sunflowers

Today I have a card I created for a friend using one of my favorite bundles, Celebrate Sunflowers.

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
This card is one of three that’s included in my exclusive tutorials which are FREE with the purchase of the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle from my online store. (*See my Just Stampin’ Rewards below.)

Sunflowers in our area are in full bloom! My husband and I took a little field trip to a nearby farm to view the amazing sunflower fields. It was truly breathtaking! Here are a few photos.

I cut some sunflowers to make a few bouquets with coordinating tags.

Chalkboard Easel Card Tutorial

Yesterday I posted several card ideas for teachers, school employees, or your favorite student. Back to school this year is certainly different during the current pandemic. With so many changes facing teachers, students, and parents, it’s nice to let them know you’re thinking of them.  Everyone loves to feel appreciated and these easel cards are quick & easy to make to brighten someone’s day!

Stampin' Up! In Good Taste thank you and inspirational chalkboard easel card card ideas for teachers or students - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s the details to create a chalkboard easel card:

Measurements

  • Card Base (Thick Very Vanilla): 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Basic Black: 3 3/4 x 3 3/4
  • In Good Taste Designer Series Paper: 2 strips 3/4 x 4 1/4, 2 strips 3/4 x 5 1/2

Directions

  1. Fold and burnish the card base.
  2. Line up the open end of the card base at the 3/4″ mark (along the right side of the trimmer) and cut up to the 1″ mark.  Flip the card and do the same on the other side of the card.
  3. Turn the card sideways so the cut marks line up at the 1″ mark (along the right side of the trimmer). Start at 3/4″ and cut to the 3 1/2″ mark (to remove piece between the cut lines).
  4. Stamp sentiment on black cardstock with Versamark Ink and emboss with white embossing powder using the Heat Tool.
  5. Use a sponge or tissue to dab White Craft Ink around the sentiment. Swirl in a circular motion as if you were erasing a chalkboard.
  6. Adhere black piece to card base.
  7. Adhere DSP strips along the top and bottom first, then adhere DSP along the sides overlapping the top and bottom piece.
  8. Embellish chalkboard as desired.

Here’s a little more details for each one…

Stamp sets: Harvest Hellos, Celebrate Sunflowers. Die cut letters using Playful Alphabet Dies. Create medal with Layering Circles Dies, Stitched Stars Dies, and Misty Moonlight 1/4″ Ribbon.

Stamp Sets: Nothing Better Than, Daisy Lane, Forever Fern. Embellish with Stitched Stars Dies.

Stamp Sets: Free As A Bird, Ornate Thanks, Good Morning Magnolia. Die Cut greenery from Sunflowers Dies. Punch vase from Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper using Vases Builder Punch. Create banner using Banners Pick A Punch. Flower punched from Confetti Flowers Border Punch.

Stamp Sets: Massive Thanks, Good Morning Magnolia. Create Banner using Banners Pick A Punch and Stitched Stars Dies.
