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

M is for Masculine

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ll be sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! It seems many people struggle with masculine cards. The key is to keep it clean.

Stampin Up! Masculine Birthday card idea using Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper and Sailing Home Stamp Set - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper is perfect for masculine cards! I like so many of the prints in this pack I had a hard time deciding which ones to use! I used 3 different prints and love how they coordinate so well.

I stamped the sailboat from the Sailing Home Stamp Set and cut it out with the coordinating Smooth Sailing Dies. These dies work with the High Tide Stamp Set too which gives you a great bang for your buck! You can purchase the dies and stamp set as a bundle and save 10%!

The lighthouse would work in place of the sailboat or you could stamp and cut the anchor.  So many possibilities!!! I love being on the ocean so I had to have the whole Come Sail Away Suite! I added the anchor from the Sail Away Trinkets along with the coordinating Baker’s Twine.

The sentiment I used is from the Well Said Stamp Set.  This set is so versatile! It has sentiments for every occasion and has sentiments for the inside too! It also has coordinating word dies you can use for even more versatility and creative fun! I absolutely love these! (Be sure to click on the link at the bottom of this post to view in my online store.  You’ll want to add these to your cart if you don’t already own them!)

I just got back from spending 3 weeks in Massachusetts.  I grew up spending the summers on Cape Cod so I look forward to going “home” in July.  We had a wonderful time with family and friends and enjoyed sailing, seafood, salt air, lots of laughs and plenty of family games.  I colored my boat to look like this famous family’s sailboat we passed in the harbor.  Can you guess the family it belongs to? (Unfortunately it’s not mine!)

I used Night of Navy and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends to color the sailboat. I also stamped my envelope with the smaller sailboat in the set.
