Celebrate Sunflowers for the Pals Blog Hop

Blog Hop July 2020

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team is showcasing “Gifts From the Garden.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers fun fold all occasion card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The inspiration for my card today came from this garden photo I took many years ago.

When my son was little we planted sunflowers.  All summer long he watched them grow and got so excited the taller they grew.  He couldn’t wait to get dressed, run outside, and stand beside the sunflowers to see how tall they were in comparison to himself. He would report daily and tell me it was as tall as his “boo boo”, up to his knees… on up until they were over his head. He is all grown up now and started a new job this week.

I chose Celebrate Sunflowers to make a card to congratulate my son. This bundle is one of My Favorite Things from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!  You can see all of My Favorite Things HERE.

My card features four of the new In Colors (Misty Moonlight, Cinnamon Cider, Bumblebee, and Just Jade). The double Z fun fold design was perfect to showcase this “growing” sunflower. If you look at the side view you can see how it got it’s name.Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers fun fold all occasion card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love the different sentiments and fonts in this stamp set! They are versatile and work for thank you cards and many different celebrations…birthday, graduation, job promotion, etc. The sentiment I used inside was perfect for my growing sunflower!

Check back tomorrow to see another version of this card as well as all the details to make this fun fold! *See below for a complete list of the products I used.

Here’s a fun fact about sunflowers.

Z is for Zoo

Welcome to the last card in my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ve been sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from anniversary to zoo. The zoo animals in the Animal Outing Stamp Set are great for all kinds of cards for new baby, thank you, kids birthday, family, or friends.  Check out this simple fun fold card idea!

Stampin' Up! Animal Outing Kid card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

You could easily substitute the different animals or sentiments in the stamp set.  Check out the cute zoo animals included in the set!

Stampin Up! Animal Outing Stamp Set - for inspiration and ordering information visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Even though I didn’t use the dies there are coordinating Animal Friends Dies available for added fun!

Stampin' Up! Animal Friends Dies - for inspiration and ordering information visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s the details if you would like to make this fun fold card.

  • Old Olive cardstock – 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2.  Line up the score line at 1 3/4 and cut off the bottom of the card front.  From the piece you just cut, cut apiece measuring 1 3/4.  You will have a leftover piece that is 2 x 4 1/4.  Cut that piece so it measures 2 x 3 1/2.  This piece will be the “bridge” to connect the top and bottom of the card.
  • Dinoroar DSP – Cut 2 pieces 4 x 1 1/2  *If you want a coordinating envelope you will also need a piece that measures 2 x 6.
  • Whisper White Cardstock – 4 x 5 1/4 (inside piece), 1 3/4 x 3 1/4 to stamp animal.

Adhere the DSP to the old olive card base and bottom piece.  Stamp the images in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White and color with Stampin’ Blends.  I used Old Olive, Mango Melody, and Soft Suede. Adhere the stamped image to the Old Olive layer and attach to the card using Tear & Tape at the top and bottom of the layered piece.

This fun card really came together fast! I hope you will give it a try.

H is for Hello (*Included in my Kit To Go!)

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ll be sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! Today’s card is quick & easy and one that you can send anytime when you just want to say Hello to a friend or family member.

Stampin' Up! Magnolia Lane All Occasion Card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I absolutely LOVE the Magnolia Suite! The dies work with both the stamp set and DSP! I cut the flower from the DSP and adhered it to the edge of the die cut from the Stitched Labels Dies. The 3D Embossing Folder adds so much depth and simple texture.

Stampin' Up! Magnolia Lane All Occasion Card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This card would work for many different occasions (birthday, sympathy, thinking of you etc.). You can easily adapt by using a different stamped sentiment. Add some coordinating DSP on the envelope flap and you have a quick & easy card for any occasion!

Let’s face it, you’ll send out more cards if you have them on hand and ready to go. This card is one of the cards that I am featuring in my Just Stampin’ Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet to Go Kit for July. As with all the projects in my kit, you receive all the pieces precut and ready to assemble.  You can stamp any sentiment depending on what type of card you need.  Here’s all the details how to order my Kit To Go….

Just Stampin’ Kit Buffet TO GO cost:  $12 (plus $3 to cover shipping and handling)

My “Kit Buffet TO GO!” is intended to make it easy for you to be able to see and try out different products while being able to substitute different stamps you already have. You don’t have to worry about having coordinating designer series paper to go with the cardstock, the right color ribbon to match, or other embellishments…everything is in the kit!  You just need to stamp and adhere.

Here’s what others have said about my past kits:

I love Jeanie’s kits – they are are like getting a beautiful gift when you open the envelope! Her directions are clear and I have loved what I have gotten. Because I am away from home for the winter I have limited supplies with me, so these kits make it much easier for me to continue crafting while I am away!  Nancy H.

Your photos and instructions are great. Christmas was just too much fun. I was able to whip up some extra gift card holders using your measurements which was so fast and easy.  I will send you an email to reserve another fun kit! It is fun to use papers and stuff I don’t have yet too.  Chris R. from Iowa

I love your kits. Your attention to detail is amazing. Instructions are fantastic and precise so that each item is quick and easy to put together. The pictures are a big plus in following the instructions.. Thank you so much for making these kits available to us.   Bernice P

Oh my goodness, thank you! I so enjoyed the last kit! Kept me occupied for a week! And this set is equally as beautiful! You do such thoughtful and intriguing projects! Please know that your talents and creativity are appreciated! (And your directions are a retired teacher’s dream!)  Nancy B.

I worked on your Card Buffet this afternoon. What a delightful way to

spend an afternoon! Your directions and photos really are EXCELLENT. I
think that part of the reason that you write such good instructions is
because you are programmed to teach little kids; it makes you really
good at spelling out every step. Well done!  ~M~

My kit arrived today and I’m so excited!  What great cards and I love the flexibility.  They’re beautiful.   Thanks, Susan

Your kit arrived yesterday and I’ve had great fun putting it together. You did a terrific job!  I love the way everything coordinates (which is my biggest challenge) and the kit was so well organized with the pieces for the box all together neatly in a glassine envelope.  Such attention to detail!  

Your instructions were impeccable.  Your pictures were beautiful and a big help in putting everything together. Obviously I am very pleased. And I will be ordering again if you have future kits.    Thank you so much,
Deborah M

I haven’t had much time to craft lately but I did these in a jiffy and they are sooo cute. Thank you for offering this for us!

*Please note… I can only accept a limited number of orders each month. I may reach my limit before the deadline. You will receive an email when your kit is shipped (~end of July). It will include an attachment with the project samples, supplies, and directions. You can substitute different stamps and sentiments using what you have or just copy my samples. The choice is up to you!

SPECIAL BONUS CARD THIS MONTH! If you have ordered my kits in the past I will include a special bonus card with your July order.  I had to have surgery on my arm in April and was unable to complete the kits I had intended to do for the month. I had everything precut for one of the cards before I had to take a break. I’m happy to be able to offer my kits again and want to thank you for ordering from me in the past.

Have a wonderful day! Share some handmade kindness!
