Bay Window Fun Fold Birthday Card

Stam[in' Up! Peaceful Moments Hydrangea Hill Bay Window Fun Fold Birthday Card Idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
Oh my gosh! I love this “new to me” fun fold card! I learned this “bay window” fun fold idea from Rachel Tessman. I changed it up using the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper and several different stamp sets. I made this card for my sister’s birthday. She loves hydrangeas! Our birthdays are just two days apart and we often celebrated together growing up.  I added some butterflies because they remind me of my favorite “butterfly cake” my mom would bake  for my sister and me. (*To make a butterfly cake, my mom would bake a round chocolate cake, cut it in half, and put the curved sides in the middle. She would frost it all over, put Hershey kisses down the middle, and add licorice for antennae. Perfect for our spring birthdays!)

Here’s more photos of this cool fun fold card. This first one shows what the card looks like closed.

The butterflies are stamped on Basic White using the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set and Memento Black Ink. They are colored with Stampin’ Blends and punched out using the Butterfly Duet Punch.
Here’s a look at the inside of the card.
Stam[in' Up! Happiest of Birthdays and Punch Party Hydrangea Hill Bay Window Fun Fold Birthday Card Idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
The inside sentiment is from the Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Set.  I added the Gorgeous Grape Sheer Ribbon and a Pastel Pearl to the sentiment on the side from Punch Party. It is punched out using the Timeless Label Punch and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals to hold the card open for the bay window look.

Spring Chicken

Happy Spring! When I saw the Hey Birthday Chick stamp set I knew I had to have it! A friend of mine not only raises chickens, her birthday is the first day of spring! The “spring chicken” sentiment was perfect for her birthday!

This card is a CASE (Copy And Share Everything) from Lee Ann Greff.  I love the fun fold, color combination, and how it showcases the different chickens! Another chicken is on the inside of this fun fold.

Hey Chick and Hey Birthday Chick Bundles

Which bundle do you prefer? I’d love to hear from you. Leave a comment below. I love having both stamp sets for a variety of sentiments and fun chickens! The word die and fence was a must have so I bought the birthday bundle. I was glad I still had the Hey Chick stamp set when it first debuted. There’s some stamp sets I just can’t let go even after they retire!

Have a great day! Stay safe! Stay well!

Happy Galentine’s Day Like Gnome Other

I love to make Valentine’s Day Cards! For today’s cards, I used a stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog that I just didn’t get to play with enough before it retired, Gnome For the Holidays. I really like the play on words with the sentiments in this set and the gnome is just stinkin’ cute! Who says you can’t turn a Christmas gnome into a Valentine’s Day one?!
Stampin' Up! Gnome For The Holidays Valentine's Day card idea for a friend - JeanieStark StampinUp
I was inspired by Julie Gilson’s Christmas card. All I had to do was change the designer series paper from Christmas to Valentine’s and cover up the ornament hanging from the gnome’s hat. I found the perfect size heart in the Stitched Be Mine Dies. (*You can view the complete list of supplies I used in the product list below.)  The hearts and squiggly paper is from the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper. This pack has lots of fun designs!

The inside sentiment I used is from the Hearts & Kisses Stamp Set. It is perfect for a friend’s valentine card.

I like the other sentiments in this set too and know I will use them throughout the year.

What could be better than a cute gnome valentine? A “gnomie” to go with it of course! I have several friends who like and collect gnomes so I sent a little gift with their card. They can put it with their Christmas ornaments and add it to their tree next year. I added a little tag with the same sentiment I used on the front of their card.
