New Monthly Tutorials…FREE with Purchase!

Happy October! This month I am featuring not one, but two stamp sets in my monthly tutorials… Tidings All Around and Seasonal Wreaths. Why two stamp sets? Because both of these stamp sets coordinate with the All-Around Wreath Dies! How cool is that?! You get a bigger bang for your buck and you can use these year round! I change the wreath on my door for each season & holiday…now we can do the same with our cards! I offer 3 exclusive tutorials each month with a minimum $40 or more online order. The Tidings All Around Bundle includes the All-Around Wreath Dies and is available for $45.75 (10% off). That’s more than the minimum to get those FREE tutorials! I have been playing with these the past week and trust me…You are going to want them! Every time I create one card, I think of another way to use it! The wreath has a permanent spot on my Stamparatus!  I can’t wait to share these projects with you!

Here’s a look at the stamp sets and dies.

Stampin' Up Gathered Leaves Dies and Tidings All Around Wreath for a fun fold fall birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I have many fall birthdays coming up including my husband, daughter, brother, sister, and several friends. This card could be used for a masculine or feminine birthday. The leaves are from Gathered Leaves Dies. These dies (and coordinating stamp set) were featured in last month’s tutorials.  I have used them so much already and keep coming up with fun new ways. If you missed out on these tutorials last month you can still get them for FREE by ordering the Gather Together Bundle from my online store.  You’ll get 3 exclusive designs with step by step directions to start creating with your new stamps and dies right away! Plus there’s other ideas on my blog and more to come! There will be no reason to have those stamps sitting on a shelf! I try to buy stamp sets that are versatile so I can get the most use out of my purchases. The ones I feature in my monthly tutorials are among my favorites!

Here’s the details for today’s card:

Materials & Measurements

  • Mint Macaron card base:  5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ , scraps to cut 2 leaves and 3 sticks
  • Pretty Peacock: 4 1/4 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4  Scraps to cut leaf and 3 sprigs
  • Very Vanilla: 2 cut at 4″ x 4″ scrap to stamp sentiment banner
  • Come To Gather DSP: 2 1/4 x 6 for envelope flap, 3/4 x 4 for inside card
  • Grapefruit Grove: scraps to cut 2 leaves
  • Pretty Peacock Scalloped Linen Ribbon: 2 pieces cut ~3 1/2″
  • Crumb Cake twine: enough to make a bow

Directions

  • Fold and burnish Pretty Peacock cardstock. Center and adhere to the Mint Macaron card base.
  • Center and stamp wreath from Tidings All Around on Very Vanilla. Stamp first in Pretty Peacock then again in Mint Macaron off centered a little so images are not right on top of each other. Adhere to Pretty Peacock.
  • Cut and trim (at an angle) two 3 1/2″ pieces of Scalloped Linen Ribbon and adhere to the wreath with Glue Dots.
  • Stamp sentiment in Pretty Peacock on 1/2″ strip on Very Vanilla. Banner the ends and adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • To get the two tone effect on the leaves, lay the dies on the stamp pad and tap lightly. Remove and cut with die cutting machine.  (These dies cut and emboss at the same time! Just another reason to love them!!!) *The Grapefruit Grove leaves were set in Cajun Craze Ink, Mint Macaron in Mint Macaron, and Pretty Peacock in Pretty Peacock.
  • Cut a few sprigs and twigs in Mint Macaron and Pretty Peacock.  Layer leaves and sprigs with Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add a leaf trinket and a Crumb Cake bow (from Natures Twine) with Glue Dots.

  • Stamp inside sentiment.  I used the Stamparatus to first stamp the large bold sentiment in Pretty Peacock.  Then I lined up and stamped the words in Mint Macaron. (*The Stamparatus makes it so easy to make multiple cards and being able to switch and turn the plates makes it quick & easy without having to remove stamps from the blocks each time! I love mine!!)

  • Add the thin strip of DSP to the bottom of the sentiment and adhere the long strip to the envelope flap for a coordinating look. Stampin' Up Gathered Leaves Dies and Tidings All Around Wreath fun fold fall birthday card idea for fall - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Stampin' Up! Merry Christmas To All stamp set with Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper Fun Fold Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love how this card turned out! It was really quick & easy to create. The bold sentiment from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set (from the annual catalog) works well with the gorgeous Feels Like Frost DSP! I added the deer for my sister. She recently moved to Charlottesville, Virginia and this reminds me of her backyard. She loves to start and end her day sitting outside feeding the deer. Here’s a picture from my recent visit.

I imagine this winter her backyard will look very much like my card! The calendar says it’s Fall but it still feels like Summer in Maryland! I like the four seasons; however, I love summer and fall most of all. Winter will be here before we know it! What’s your favorite season?

Have a wonderful day!

Stampin' Up! Country Home and To A Wild Rose Fun Fold Thanksgiving card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Assembly

  • Fold and burnish score lines using a bone folder. Fold Old Olive cardstock forward, fold Pressed Petals DSP back
  • Adhere Old Olive DSP to the Old Olive card base.
  • Put Tear & Tape (or other strong adhesive such as Multipurpose Liquid Glue) along the 3/8″ score line. Fold up from 2nd score line and adhere.
  • Stamp sentiments on Very Vanilla cardstock with Golden Glitz Metallic Ink and Soft Suede. (I masked sentiments from Country Home and To A Wild Rose Stamp Sets.)
  • Punch and die cut leaves from Gold Foil using Leaf Punch, leaf from Every Season Punch Pack, and die from Botanical Tags Dies. Adhere to Very Vanilla panel.
  • Emboss sentiment layer with Subtle Embossing Folder for a linen look. Adhere to Pressed Petals DSP.
  • Add adhesive along 3/8″ strip of DSP panel and along bottom of card base. To adhere to card base:  Fold card base flat, center bottom of DSP along bottom of card base and adhere. Then fold adhesive on top of DSP down and adhere to card base.
  • Stamp sentiment for back of card on Very Vanilla. *Tip: For an easy masking technique when you want to stamp 2 colors, use the Stamparatus and a sticky note. First I stamped the sentiment in Golden Glitz Metallic Ink on to my cardstock.  I covered the words I didn’t want to stamp with a sticky note then inked my stamp again with Soft Suede and stamped. So easy!
  • Add leaf die above sentiment and adhere to DSP layer and to the back of card base.
