Dragonfly Garden Seed Packet Holder

Today is my birthday and I have a gift for you! I’m sending a birthday “favor” to every customer who places an online order this month. I love to send thank you cards and little gifts to my customers to show my appreciation for supporting my Stampin’ Up! business. I thought this would be the perfect little gift for spring.

Each month I offer exclusive tutorials for my customers. This month I am featuring Dragonfly Garden. The sentiment I chose from this set goes so well with my seed packet card.

Pop Up Fun Fold Card Tutorial

Yesterday I shared my new favorite fun fold card I made for Easter. Today I have a photo tutorial for you along with another version I made for Mother’s Day.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Bouquet and Word Wishes Mother's Day fun fold card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This beautiful bouquet will last forever! I used the same fun fold “formula” along with the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper and Word Wishes Dies that I used on my Easter card.  The flowers are from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set and die cut with the Bouquet Bunch Dies. I love this sweet color combination: Petal Pink, Lovely Lipstick, and Whisper White (with a touch of green).

Here’s the Easter card I shared yesterday.

Stampin Up Best Dressed Hold On To Hope fun fold Easter card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I made 25 of these Easter cards so I worked “assembly line style”.  I cut, scored, stamped, and die cut everything, then put it all together. Here’s a look at all the pieces (*minus the Word Wishes die cut, “Happy Easter”).

Stampin' Up Hold on to Hope and Crosses of Hope fun fold card pieces for Easter card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s all the details:

Stamps & Dies

  • Hold On To Hope Stamp Set
  • Crosses of Hope Dies
  • A Wish for Everything Bundle (A Wish for Everything Stamp set and Word Wishes Dies)

Materials & Measurements

  • Card base (Purple Posy cardstock): 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 scored at 2 3/4
  • DSP Layer on card base: 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
  • Middle layer (Purple Posy cardstock): 2 x 4 1/2 scored at 1/2, 2 1/4, 4
  • DSP Layer in middle (Best Dressed floral pattern): 1 7/8 x 3 1/2
  • Curved front panel (Purple Posy): 1 1/4 x 6 1/2 scored at 1/2 on each end
  • Whisper White:  (2)  2 1/2 x 4 for stamped panels on the back of the card, scraps to stamp sentiment, stamp and die cut flowers, and die cut Happy Easter
  • Sparkle Glimmer Paper: 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 (to die cut cross) Color with Highland Heather reinker and Aqua Painter
  • Purple Posy: 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 (to die cut cross)
  • Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon: ~5″ Color with Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend
  • Highland Heather Classic Ink

Directions

  1. Fold and burnish card base and front strip along the score lines. Apply liquid glue to the tabs on the front strip and adhere to the card base on each side.
  2. Adhere the DSP panel to the back of the card sliding the bottom under the front panel so it hides the side tabs. Gently fold the card base along the score line making sure you don’t crease the front panel. You can see how it “pops out”.
  3. Adhere DSP to the middle panel. Fold along the center score line to crease the DSP. Fold in the edges & glue these to the back of the card laying down completely flat and in line with the center fold when gluing down the tabs.
  4. Glue the floral die cut on the front of the card along the left side. Adhere stamped panels on the back of the card.
  5. Adhere Happy Easter die cut sentiment along front piece.
  6. Paint the Sparkle Glimmer die cut cross with Highland Heather ink (put a few drops of reinker in the lid of the stamp pad) using an Aqua Painter. Let dry then adhere to the solid cross.  You could use a fine-tip glue pen but, I prefer to use liquid glue and apply with a sponge dauber on a silicone craft mat. Add a Rhinestone Jewel in the center of the cross.
  7. Color the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon using the Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend. This is so quick & easy to do!!!! Adhere ribbon to the cross using Mini Glue Dots. (I put two on the back to hold the ribbon and 1 on the front.)Use Stampin' Up! Stampin' Blends to color the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon to make any color ribbon you want - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
  8. Put 3 Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the center fold of the middle layer to adhere the cross.
  9. Stamp Hold on to Hope on 1/2 x 2 1/2 Whisper White strip and cut apart.  Adhere to front of card as shown.

Stampin Up Best Dressed Hold On To Hope fun fold Easter card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The base of this card is just 1/4 sheet of cardstock which makes it easy to fold flat to fit in the envelope to mail.

When the recipient opens the card it pops out and stands up for a wonderful display! (*The crease is the card base makes the front come forward like you’re reading/holding a book.)

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!

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!
