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!

F is for Friend for the Pals Blog Hop

Pals Blog Hop June 2019

Welcome to the Pals’ June  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects using “Anything with Wings” 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.

This month 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 quick & easy card for a friend using the Free As A Bird stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Free As A Bird friend card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I couldn’t decide between birds or butterflies for our “Anything with Wings” theme.  This simple card design would work with either. I knew I wanted to use this sentiment from Free As A Bird so this one stamp set did it all!

Here’s all the details if you would like to make this card:

  • Card Base: Seaside Spray Cardstock 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
  • DSP Layer:  2″ x 4 1/4″.  Adhere to the center of the card base.
  • Cardstock Layer: Daffodil Delight 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″.
  • Stamped Layer: Whisper White Cardstock 2-1/2″ x 4″. Stamp the image and using Memento Black Ink.  Color with Stampin’ Blends: Daffolidl Delight Combo, Old Olive Combo, and Crumb Cake Combo. Stamp sentiment in Seaside Spray ink. Adhere to Daffoldil Delight Cardstock.
  • Wrap a piece of Seaside Spray Scalloped Ribbon around the stamped layer and adhere on back.  Tie a simple knot in front. Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Embellish the envelope with a 1/4″ strip of Seaside Spray cardstock and a 2 x 6 piece of DSP.  Trim around the flap with Paper Snips.

The best part about this card is you don’t need to wait for a special occasion to send this to someone.  Make someone smile today!

Simply Scored Fun Fold for the Pals Blog Hop

2019 April Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals’ May  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects with “More Than One Score.” 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 love fun fold cards! I have been wanting to make this one for some time now but, the name, “Impossible Fold”, sounded intimidating.  Let me just say, this card is anything but impossible!  In fact, it is a really simple fun fold to make!

Stampin Up Free As a Bird Fun Fold All Occasion card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the Free As a Bird Stamp Set and and Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper which will be available in the new annual catalog when it debuts June 4th. Demonstrators were able to see and play with new products at Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event.  This suite was used for one of the make ‘n take projects.  I like to challenge myself and use the make ‘n take products to make something a little different.

This fun fold starts with a piece of 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 cardstock.  A few simple scores (4 to be exact) turns what would be a flat card in to a cool pop up!

I will share the full color tutorial with directions and measurements on my blog tomorrow.  Make sure you subscribe to my blog so you don’t miss out! Here’s a look at the side view.

Stampin Up Free As a Bird Impossible Fun Fold All Occasion card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love the new scalloped lace trim too! (I’ll share how I made the fun banner tomorrow.) I had fun coloring the birds with the Stampin’ Blends. You could just as easily watercolor with ink or use Stampin’ Up!’s watercolor pencils. Just think of all the color possibilities for these cute little birds!

This fun fold card would look great propped up on a desk or bookcase.  Don’t forget to check back tomorrow for the photo tutorial so you can make one for someone special!
