Get This Spirited Snowman Before He Melts Away!

Stampin’ Up! released their retiring products and year end close out sale today and I was sorry to see the Spirited Snowman stamp set on the list.  This is one of my favorite stamp sets in the Holiday Catalog!  This was the swap card I made for my friends attending the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Convention last month.

Stampin Up Spirited Snowman fun fold card idea for a friend - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love this happy little guy and he was so much fun to color with my Stampin’ Blends.  I enjoy making this fun fold card. (You can view my photo tutorial for how to make it HERE.) Here’s a picture of it from the side.

I like the way this fun fold card stands up.  It can also fold flat to mail in a regular envelope.  I dressed is up a little with some snowflakes cut from the Blizzard Thinlits Die (also retiring) and the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.  Here’s my attempt at an infinity shot of these guys all lined up.

Cut It Out Fun Fold for the Pals Blog Hop

Blog Hop August

Welcome to the Pals August, 2018 Blog Hop. We love to cut it out so this month our creations feature our favorite “cuts” using punches, Framelits and Thinlits from the current Stampin’ Up! catalog.

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 the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I have a fun fold to share with you today inspired by Dawn Griffith!  I love fun folds and this one is quite simple and can be used for a variety of occasions!

Stampin Up Detailed With Love Fun Fold friend card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Do you recognize the stamped floral image? It’s from the Make A Difference Stamp Set and it coordinates perfectly with the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper! I stamped it in Memento ink and colored it to match using the Stampin’ Blends.

It takes just a few quick cuts and this fun fold card is ready to assemble! Here’s the measurements:

Card Base (Crumb Cake): 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
Layer 1 (Rich Razzleberry): 3 3/4 x 5 1/2
DSP Layer: 3 1/4 x 6 Score at 5 9/16
Whisper White Layer (inside piece): 3 1/4 x 5 1/2

Circle Punches:
2 1/4″ : Glimmer Paper
2″ : Punch from Layer 1 cardstock
1 3/4″ : Whisper White (for stamped layer)

Layering Circles Framelits:
Cut from Layer 1 cardstock with 2 3/8 straight & 2 3/4 Scallop
Cut from DSP with 2 3/8 straight

Directions:
Fold the DSP layer along the score line and adhere to the back of the Rich Razzleberry layer before adhering the Rich Razzleberry layer to the card base. Adhere the Whisper White layer to the Rich Razzleberry so it is hidden under the DSP layer. Adhere the scallop circle piece to frame the circle cut from the DSP. Wrap ~12″ ribbon around the DSP layer and tie in a simple knot. Adhere the stamped layer to the cardstock and Glimmer layers and attach inside the opening using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Sneak Peek…Share What You Love

There’s no denying how much I love to mix and match colors and patterns (in home decor as well as card making)!  Stampin’ Up!’s color coordination (and quality) is what drew me to become a demonstrator. It is easy to create when everything coordinates! Today I have a sneak peek at some absolutely gorgeous new designer series paper, Share What You Love. It will be available in the new annual catalog.

Stampin Up Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper - For inspiration and ordering information visit www.juststampin.com Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My photo does not do this paper justice! These are handpainted designs on heavyweight sheets. You get 24 12 x 12 sheets: 4 each of 6 double sided designs.  Four of the designs have a translucent pearlized finish. I made two fun fold cards today using the Love What You Do Stamp Set and Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Stampin Up Fun Fold card ideas using Share What You Love Suite -Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I was inspired by Linda Droege’s Double Triangle Fun Fold card I received at OnStage.  (You can view Linda’s card HERE.) I love fun fold cards and chose the new Share What You Love Suite to “share what I love”. I changed my cards up a little by embossing one card and adding a belly band to the other.

Stampin Up Love What You Do and Perennial Birthday Fun Fold Card idea - Jeanie Stark SrampinUp

This is a simple fun fold to do.  You can make both cards from 1 sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock. Here’s the details:

  1. Score the 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock in the middle on each side: With the long side at the top, score at 5 1/2. Turn your paper and score on the short side at 4 1/4.
  2. Next, you need to remove the score blade from the Stampin’ Trimmer so you can cut your paper on the diagonal.
  3. Fold and burnish along the score lines with a bone folder.
  4. Cut a 4 x 5 1/4 coordinating cardstock on the diagonal to get 2 triangles.
  5. Cut a piece of 3 3/4 x 5 DSP on the diagonal to get 2 triangles.
  6. *For the first card you need to emboss one of the diagonal cardstock pieces using the Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Adhere layers to the card base.
  7.  Stamp sentiments on Shimmery Whisper White cardstock using Tranquil Tide ink. Cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. *I cut an extra circle to adhere to the back of the doily for a finished look.
  8. Adhere stitched circles to Pearlized Doilies.*Make sure you just put adhesive on part of the doily so you can open the card.
  9. Cut 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White for inside card.  Stamp and add 3/4 x 4 DSP border.
  10. Embellish with Ribbon, Artisan Pearls, and/or flower (fussy cut from DSP).Stampin Up Fun Fold card idea using Share What You Love Suite -Jeanie Stark StampinUp
  11. *Optional belly band measures 1 x 10 and is wrapped loosely around the card and adhered in front. I added some retired Mint Macaron Ribbon (available while supplies last in the Clearance Rack) before adhering the doily with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin Up Share What You Love friend card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The belly band slides off to open the card on this version.

Stampin Up Fun Fold card idea using Share What You Love Suite -Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Of course I had to dress up my envelopes to coordinate.

Stampin Up Fun Fold card idea using Share What You Love Suite -Jeanie Stark StampinUp

What do you think of this fun fold and the Share What You Love Suite?  Do you prefer it with the belly band or without?

If you would like to make these cards I have some great news…the stamp set, designer series paper, pearlized doilies, and embossing folder I used on these cards will be available to purchase May 1st!  You don’t have to wait until June!!  Stampin’ Up! is “spreading the love” with an early release of the Share What You Love Suite. You will be able to choose from 3 different bundles and each bundle comes with FREE product! I’ll be sharing more projects I made using this suite next week!  You can click below to view the early release flyer. Get your wish list started!

OnStage Card Swap…Day 2

Yesterday I shared with you the first batch of beautiful cards I received at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event I attended in Hartford, Conn.  If you missed that post you can view it HERE. Today, I have more inspiration to get your creative juices flowing.

Card Created by Linda Droege

I was so excited to get Linda’s Double Triangle Fun Fold Card!  I have been wanting to make one of these fun folds and hers is just over the top gorgeous! I love everything about it from the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper to the organza ribbon she dyed to match.  Here’s how it looks opened.

Stampin Up Beautiful Day friend card idea colored with Brusho Crystal Colour - For inspiration, ordering, and more visit www.juststampin.com Jeanie Stark StampinUp
Card Created by Ramsey Alexander

This card is just beautiful in person! Ramsey used the Brusho Crystal Colour ink crystals to watercolor over the heat embossed butterfly from the Beautiful Day stamp set.  I need to pull out my Crystal Colours and play.  Ramsey has done several of these cards and they come out beautiful and different every time.  This is a fun watercolor technique!

This card is so Jill! She is so much fun to be around! The Lemon Zest Stamp set has fun sentiments.  Check out what she stamped inside.

Stampin Up Beautiful Bouquet friend card idea - For inspiration, ordering and more visit www.juststampin.com Jeanie Stark StampinUp
Card Created by Deb Echelmeyer

Deb is so creative! I love how she used the flower stems from the Bouquet Bunch Dies to make a lilac bush!  (Which just happen to be my favorite flower scent!)  Deb added texture and layers to this beautiful card using the Brick Wall Embossing Folder and Layering Dies. Such a pretty spring card!

Stampin Up Birthday Blooms and Bouquet Bunch friend card idea - for inspiration, ordering and more, visit www.juststampin.com  Jeanie Stark  StampinUp
Card Created by Rosanne Mulhern

Rosanne’s card is another example of adding layers to create a beautiful card! Like Deb, she used the Beautiful Bunch Framelits to cut out the flowers and leaves. Even though this card has many flowers and layers, it has a clean & simple feel with the black & white background. I love the sentiment (and font) she used from the Birthday Blooms stamp set. It is retiring in May but it’s definitely one I will keep and continue to use. I love all the sentiments and beautiful flowers in this set.  Check it out below and be sure to get it before it’s gone!

I so appreciate the stamping community and my stamping friends! Everyone so willingly shares their ideas and talent.  Together we really can make a difference as we share our handmade kindness one card at a time! Make someone smile today!!

Thanks for stopping by!  I appreciate you taking the time to comment and I love it when you shop my online store.  Your support helps me to keep doing what I love!!  Everyone who shops with me this month will receive one of my swap cards (you can see it HERE) in addition to my monthly thank you gifts (card kits and more).

Have a wonderful day! It’s a beautiful day here in Hagerstown, Maryland and I’m going to soak up the sunshine on my walk this afternoon!

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.

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

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

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

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.

K is for Kits

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today I’m showcasing the Perennial Birthday Project Kit.  I send lots of birthday cards and I love the box that comes with this kit to help keep everything organized. Here’s a look at the kit.

Perennail Birthday kit

You not only get all the supplies to make 16 birthday cards (4 of each design), but you also get the fabulous storage box!  There are even monthly dividers that you can use to write everyone’s birthday on so you don’t forget any.  Use the box to store the cards you have ready to send!

The Perennial Birthday Stamp Set coordinates with the kit and has great sentiments for the inside of cards too! I used the floral and leaf designs to decorate my envelopes to coordinate.

I’m a little late posting today because I stayed up to watch the Oscars!  I look forward to this event every year.  I love movies and seeing if my favorites win! And I love to see what everyone wears! Here’s a photo of me from my Hollywood “Oscar Moment” several years ago. That little trophy is heavier than you think!

G is for Glimmer Paper

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series features products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today I’m showcasing the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper (and more). This is a no-mess way to add glitter accents! This paper is embedded with small pieces of glitter. Glitter won’t brush off or flake off so there’s no clean up. You get 24 6×6 glittered sheets: 8 each of 3 colors (Iridescent, light green, turquoise)

Stampin Up Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper - For inspiration and ordering information visit my blog www.juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This paper is so much fun to add accents for a little touch of sparkle to any project.  I punched balloons to go with the Party Pandas for this fun fold birthday card inspired by a card Linda Heller shared that was designed by Janet Munden.

Party Pandas is the most popular Sale-A-Bration stamp set! You can get it for FREE with a qualifying order through March 31.

Party Pandas Stamp Set - Free during Sale-A-Bration

I love these adorable pandas! They remind me of Tian Tian, Mei Xiang and Bei Bei. I live in Maryland just an hour outside Washington D.C. where you can visit the giant pandas at the National Zoo.   My Pre-K students and I even watch these giant pandas right in our classroom through Smithsonian’s National Zoo’s Panda Cams. Click on the link below if you want to see what Tian Tian, Mei Xiang and Bei Bei are up to today. (Be forewarned this could get addictive!)

Earlier today I snapped these photos as I watched them eat their lunch. (Now you know how I really spend my day.  LOL)

I love how this card opens for an upright version of a Double Z-Fold card.

Here’s what it looks like from the side. You can see how it gets it’s Double Z-Fold name.

Stampin Up Party Pandas Double Z Fun Fold birthday card idea with Glimmer Paper and Bubbles & Fizz DSP - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This is a fun card to make.  It is a little wider than others I have shared so here’s the measurements:

Lemon Lime Twist: 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2 and 8 1/4.

Basic Black: 3 1/4 x 10, scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2.

Whisper White: 3 x 4 1/4 for top piece, (2) 1 x 2 1/2 for bottom pieces.

Bubbles & Fizz DSP: 1 x 4 1/4 for top piece, (2) 1 x 2 1/2 for bottom pieces.

You can click HERE to see another Double Z-Fold card I shared with a photo tutorial how to assemble.

Did you notice the colors of my balloons? Are you wondering where I got the Calypso Coral Glimmer Paper? Here’s a cool tip…You can make any color glimmer paper you want with the Iridescent Glimmer Paper, reinkers, and an Aqua Painter.  Just add a few drops of reinker in the lid of your ink pad and use the Aqua Painter to color the Iridescent Glimmer Paper. (*You never want to pick up ink directly from your pad using the Aqua Painter or Blender Pens.) You want to make sure to go in one direction so you don’t ruin the bristles on your Aqua Painter.  Let it dry before cutting or punching.  Now you can add a little glimmer to any project!

Here’s another look at today’s card and matching envelope.
