Peace on Earth for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #20

tic tac toe

It’s Thursday so that means it’s time for another Tic Tac Toe Challenge! Using the challenge board to choose my elements made this project easy.  Let’s face it, we spend more time trying to come up with card ideas than it takes to make the card.  Let the challenge board do the “thinking” for you.  Here’s my card.

Stampin Up Carols of Christmas fun fold Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s this week’s board:

img_7862

I chose to go down the left side: peace, metallic thread, white and by adding some rhinestones I also made tic tac toe on the diagonal: peace, Free, rhinestones.  It really is so much fun and easy to create using the challenge board.  Give it a try!!!

I love to make fun fold cards and this one is actually the first fun fold style I ever made. (You can see my first fun fold card below.)  This style card is really easy to make and doesn’t take a lot of products to put together.  You need a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of cardstock for the base of the card and a 4 x 5 1/4 layer for the inside of the card. You also need 2 pieces of 4 x 3 DSP and then any shape to put on the front of the card.  Here’s how to put it all together.

Fold both 4 x 3 pieces of DSP up to the middle to create a point.  Make sure you don’t overlap.  Add a bit of glue to keep the folded pieces closed and then fold up/over.

Adhere the folded flaps to the top and bottom of the inside layer then adhere to the card base.

You can make this card with any shape added to the front. The Carols of Christmas Stamp Set was an easy choice for the “Peace” element for my card.  I love this sentiment and the large font! I stamped it using Tranquil Tide ink and cut it out using the Layering Squares Framelits. I added Silver Metallic Thread and a folded piece of ribbon behind the sentiment before adhering to the scalloped layer. It’s hard to tell in the photo but I used Clear Wink of Stella to add a little glimmer to the sentiment.

Make sure when you adhere the stamped image to the card you just put adhesive on the top flap (close to the point) so you can open the card. The inside sentiment is from Star of Light Stamp Set. I added a rhinestone to the center of the star on the inside.

I added DSP to the envelope to coordinate with my card.

Here is the first fun fold card I did years ago before I had a blog. My friend, Susan Itell, featured it on her blog. You can see how you can use different shapes on the front.

Pals Blog Hop

Welcome to the August 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month we’re going to “Cut It Out”. Participants will feature projects with “cuts” from punches, dies, Framelits, Edgelits, or Thinlits.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

Quick & Easy Daisy Tote Bag made with a Clear Acetate Card Box, Designer Series Paper, Ribbon, and Stampin Up Daisy Punch. For directions, supplies, and more visit www.juststampin.com

It takes just a few simple cuts and to make these adorable tote bags!

Quick & Easy Daisy Tote Bag made with a Clear Acetate Card Box, Designer Series Paper, Ribbon, and Stampin Up Daisy Punch. For directions, supplies, and more visit www.juststampin.com

I love punches and the Daisy Punch is one of my favorites! Punches make it quick & easy to create and this project is all about quick & easy! I am a teacher so August means getting ready for back to school.  These adorable totes would make great little gifts for teachers or students.  (They would also make great favors for a bachelorette party or wedding shower!)

I started with a new product that will be available in the holiday catalog (Sept. 1), Acetate Card Boxes.  You get a set of 10 for $6.50.

These boxes are great for holding a set of cards to give as a gift. This month’s blog hop is all about “cuts” so I decided to think outside the “box”. I cut the box in half (at 2 7/8″) to make these totes. Each card box will make 2 totes which makes this project not only quick & easy but inexpensive too! Just fold and close each end and you are ready to decorate. *I put a glue dot on each flap to help keep it closed so it would stand up easily.

The Designer Series Paper insert measures 4 3/8 x 6 1/4.  Score at 2 7/8 from each end. Fold and slide inside the clear box.  Cut 2 10″ pieces of ribbon for the handles.  Adhere to the tote with Tear & Tape.  *I adhered the Tear & Tape directly to the box on each end then removed the backing to attach the ribbon. (Repeat on the back side.)

I used the Daisy Punch to punch 2 daisies from Whisper White cardstock and adhered one on top of the other.  I cut a circle from Daffodil Delight using the 1/2″ Circle Punch. I attached this to the front of the tote using a Stampin’ Dimensional. That’s all there is to it. I told you it was quick & easy! There are so many gift possibilities for these totes! You can fill them with a gift card, tissues, lipstick, gum, candy, sticky notes, etc.

Here’s the view from above with some of the different items tucked inside.

Changing the DSP, ribbon, etc. can give it a totally different look.

Quick & Easy Tote Bag made with a Clear Acetate Card Box, Designer Series Paper, Ribbon, and Stampin Up Bow Buider Punch. For directions, supplies, and more visit www.juststampin.com

For this tote bag I used the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper, Metallic Edge Ribbon, and the Bow Builder Punch. Wouldn’t this be a beautiful favor for a wedding shower?!

Quick & Easy Monogrammed Tote Bag made with an altered Acetate Card Box, Designer Series Paper, Ribbon, and Stampin Up Large Letters Framelits. For directions, supplies, and more visit www.juststampin.com

I love monogrammed bags, etc.  The Large Letters Framelits are perfect for personalizing this gift bag! I also added a Mini Tassle embellishment. I love how Stampin’ Up! color coordinates everything! The In Color Ribbon selection matches the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper.

Stampin’ Up! has so many patterned papers, punches, dies, and ribbons to choose from! The Wood Textures DSP would make a great brief case for a masculine look. The Just Add Color Specialty Designer Series Paper would be great for a child…put a box of crayons inside and let them color their own. (Little snack bags would be fun to put inside too!) I am making a bunch of these to give as gifts and some I will sell at my Holiday Open House. Do you have a favorite?

U is for Upright Z-Fold Card

Welcome to my ABC with Fun Folds series. Today’s card features the new Bright Wishes Stamp Set. It is an Upright Z-Fold which is quite unique.

Fun Fold Upright Z Fold card using Stampin Up Bright Wishes Stamp Set and watercolor pencils. For more ideas, directions, and supplies visit www.juststampin.com

The wishing well reminds me of my childhood.  We had a wishing well in the middle of our side lawn and it served as second base for many kickball and softball games. I remember tossing pennies in the well and making a wish! Here’s a photo of me standing by our wishing well when I was 5.

img_2119-1
I couldn’t resist using a penny to hold my card “upright”.  Here’s the details how to make this unique fun fold.

My card base is 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2.  The DSP is from Delightful Daisy. My pieces measure 4 x 5 1/4 and 4 x 2 1/2.  The stamped panel is 3 x 4 layered with 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 Basic Black.

I liked it in the black and white but then decided to color it using the watercolor pencils and blender pen.

Which way do you like it…black & white or colored?

Here’s the side view.

This really is quick & easy to make. Just make sure when adhering your stamped panel you only put adhesive on the bottom half.  I attached the penny with a Stampin’ Dimensional to hold the card upright. You could easily stamp a sentiment and pop it up to hold your panel.  I chose to stamp my sentiment on the back for this card.

I really like the sentiments in this set…the different choices make it versatile for many occasions.

Fun Fold Happy Mail

I interrupt my regularly scheduled post to bring you some happy mail. When I came home last night from my book club meeting there was a package sitting on the counter for me. (Both my husband and I are terrible about remembering to get the mail!) One look at the envelope and I couldn’t wait to open it!

img_2607

Cute, right? When I opened it, I was amazed to find this gorgeous purse!! Daisies, my favorite! There was a note enclosed and I can’t tell you how much it touched my heart.  It was from a blog reader, Kathy Royce. She saw this on Splitcoast Stampers and said she had to make one especially for me.  She thought it was perfect timing because I was doing this fun fold series.  Oh my Gosh!!!  I am so blessed!

img_2608

The clutch purse was designed by Dee Slater and you can bet I will be checking out Splitcoast Stampers for directions to CASE it too! (Kathy, if you are reading this, post the link in the comments or email me and I will update with the link.)

 

It gets even better….when I opened it there were 4 gorgeous note cards enclosed!  WOW! What an exciting surprise!

Here’s a close up of each of these adorable cards and custom envelopes.

I is for Interlocking Fun Fold

Welcome to my ABC’s with Fun Folds series.  Today I am showcasing an Interlocking Gate Fold. This is one of the many variations to the Gate Fold cards I shared for the letter G.  (If you missed that post you can see it HERE.)  I adore daisies and can’t seem to get enough of the new Delightful Daisy Suite (available June 1st). The Designer Series Paper in this suite goes with so many different colors.  Here I paired it with Wisteria Wonder.

img_2439

My daughter was going to bed as I was going downstairs to create this card. (I am a night owl and seem to be more creative in the evening.)  She asked what color card I was going to make today and I said I didn’t know yet. Her favorite color is purple so of course she said, “Purple always looks nice”.  So purple it is!

The real treat to this card is how it opens.

Stampin up fun fold card idea using Daisy Delight stamp set and Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper -Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s how to make this fun fold interlocking card…

Start with a piece of  4 1/4 x 11 piece of cardstock and score it at 2 3/4 and 8 1/4.  Fold on the score lines and adhere 2 pieces of 2 1/2 x 4 Designer Series Paper.  (I love this Delightful Daisy DSP!!!)

img_2437

Die cut two layering shapes ( I used squares but you could use any layering dies) making sure one is about 1/4″ larger than the other.  I also cut a piece of DSP from the inside square and adhered that to the cardstock.

Adhere the scalloped square shape on the left gate flap making sure to just put adhesive on the half that attaches.  Adhere the right half of DSP square to the right gate flap.

I stamped the daisy twice on Shimmery Whisper White cardstock then blended the color a bit while it was still wet to give it the same washed look that is in the DSP.  I punched both out with the Daisy Punch and adhered them together with a glue dot.  I curled the ends of the daisy with my bone folder then attached the daisy to the center square with a glue dot.  I also stamped the inside of the card and the envelope with the daisy stamp but left the inside of the card blank.  This card could be used for just about anything and by leaving it blank for now I will be ready for any occasion.  All I have to do is stamp a sentiment inside and send!

C is for Criss Cross Card

Welcome to my ABC’s with Fun Folds series.  Today’s fun fold is a criss cross card.  There are several ways you can do this card and I will share another option with you.

img_2164

I absolutely love the new Delightful Daisy Suite! Stampin’ Up! does the best job coordinating stamp sets with punches (or dies), DSP, ribbon, and embellishments. The Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper has gorgeous prints with a subtle ombre look. While I can’t share images from the new catalog just yet, I can share with you a picture I took of the display board from OnStage.

I love these flower prints and I love that the DSP is double sided so even if you aren’t crazy about one print you can use the other side. And it’s so nice that every paper pack has the coordinating cardstock colors labeled so it takes the guess work away and you can get right to creating.  I chose Night of Navy to go with the DSP I used today.  I found the directions to make the criss cross card fun fold design several years ago from Splitcoast Stampers. Here’s the detail how I made today’s card…

I started with a piece of 8 1/2 x 11 Night of Navy cardstock and cut it in half so I would have 2 pieces measuring 4 1/4 x 11.  I scored each piece at 5 1/2.  Then I took one piece and cut it diagonally from the score line to the bottom left. Then I cut the other piece from the score line to the bottom right.

Glue both pieces together making sure the diagonally sections are on the bottom.

Next I cut a piece of 4 x 5 1/4″ DSP in half diagonally. (*Tip: It is best to put your cutting blade in the center and cut up and down rather than try to cut from the points.) Flip one piece over and adhere both to the card base. (*The photo below is showing the back view of the card so you can see both pieces.)

Now comes the point where you have options.  You can choose to make this a pocket style card by adding Tear &Tape along the bottom middle section and adhere the top flap closed or you can make a belly band to slide off and open the card.  The choice is up to you.

Either way you need to stamp the inside piece.  I used the new gorgeous 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon to make a belly band. This ribbon is so soft and easy to tie.  The chevron pattern is very subtle. My Whisper White cardstock measures 4 x 5 1/4.  I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Delight Stamp Set (available June 1st) in Night of Navy Ink. (Make sure you stamp or write below the criss cross opening on the front. See the photo above.  I only wanted “Thank You” to show in the opening.)   I stamped off the daisy stamp then stamped it twice (overlapping the petals) to create a fuller flower. I stamped the center of the daisy in Daffodil Delight Ink. I wanted to get a subtle washed look like the DSP so I took my blender pen while the ink was still a little wet and blended the ink out from the center.

img_2169

You still have room to write a little message below or if you choose to make it a pocket style card you can write a message on the back of this piece.  I love to stamp my envelopes to match. It really ties it all together and adds that extra special touch.

B is for Bridge Fun Fold

Welcome to my ABC’s with Fun Folds series. Today I am sharing a new fold (new to me at least) called the bridge fold.  Linda Heller shared this fold created by Debbi Muche.  This is a fun card that can stand up on a desk. My version uses the High Tide Stamp Set (which I absolutely love).

img_2137

I had a request to make a card for someone that is going through chemo. I think the sentiments in this stamp set are perfect for encouragement and support!

High Tide Stamp Set

The bridge fold is quick & easy to make (just the way I like it)!  Start with a piece of cardstock that measures 4 1/4 x 8.  Score at 1 1/4, 2 1/2, 5 1/2, and 6 3/4.

img_2120

Fold and crease the score lines so you have the shorter ends in the front and the larger panel set back.  I chose By the Shore Designer Series Paper to use on my panels but you could easily use the stamps in the set to create your own watery background. I cut 2 pieces of DSP at 1 x 4 and 1 at 2 3/4 x 4.  I wanted my panels to look like one continuous flow so I started with a 6 x 4 piece and cut them in order to line up across the panel.

img_2124

I stamped the center panel using Basic Black and Dapper Denim ink. I cut a 1 x 5 1/2 strip of Crumb Cake and stamped it using Sahara Sand ink. I fussy cut along the top part of the strip. I used Fast Fuse just on the ends and adhered this strip to the panel.  The lighthouse is two step stamping.  This is a photopolymer stamp set which makes it easy to see and do. First I stamped the outline in Real Red ink on Shimmery White cardstock.  Then I stamped the details in Basic Gray ink and fussy cut it out.  I used foam adhesive strips just along the bottom and side to pop up the lighthouse. I love how it turned out! It even folds flat to fit in the envelope to mail!

img_2140

Linda Heller’s version used the new Daisy Delight stamp set, Daisy Punch, and Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper (available June 1st).  I CASEd her design (with a few changes) to make this birthday card for my friend, Caroline.

These are so much fun to make and the possibilities are endless.  My mind is racing with more card ideas I want to make using this fold! If you decide to give this fold a try I would love to see what you create.  Email me a photo (j.stark@myactv.net).
