Snow is Glistening Fun Fold Card

I am excited to share with you today’s card which uses some of the limited edition products from the just released Snowflake Showcase.Stampin Up Snow is Glistening Fun Fold Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp The star of this card is the copper embossed snowflake tree from the Snow is Glistening stamp set. I may have gone a little overboard heat embossing today but I just love the look and texture of the raised images. I even heat embossed the snowflake trinket!

I love how this stamp set coordinates with the gorgeous Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalog. This DSP and the Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon I used on my card are from the Joyous Noel Suite (which is one of my favorites). I love the copper foil accents.

This easel fun fold is quick & easy to create! The Sahara Sand cardstock is cut at 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2.  I adhered a 2 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of DSP just below the score line. The tree is heat embossed on Merry Merlot cardstock that measures 2 1/2 x 4 and layered on Copper Foil that is 2 5/8 x 4 1/8.  The layered image is adhered to the DSP only. *Don’t adhere the top portion as you want it to stand up when opened.

I wrapped the elegant ribbon around the card and tied a bow. I secured the bow at the base of the tree with a glue dot. Here’s a look at the card when it’s closed.

I love the inside of the card as much as the front! I cut the Merry die from the Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies and heat embossed the greeting.

You can heat emboss sentiments in any color by simply stamping the sentiment in Versamark first, then ink, then sprinkle with Clear Embossing Powder. I love to watch the magic happen with the Heat Tool.  *Don’t forget to use the embossing buddy on the cardstock before you stamp to prevent the embossing powder from sticking to other areas of your card. I used Merry Merlot ink for the greetings. I wanted the snowflake to be copper so I put a glue dot on the back and used my paper piercing tool to hold it as I stamped it in the Versamark, then dipped it in the Copper Embossing Powder and heat set it with the Heat Tool. The raised snowflake holds the easel card up.

I usually play around make more than one card when I’m creating and this was no exception.  I decided to switch up the sentiments and try the Merry die at the bottom.

I think this card would look pretty on a mantle or side table.

Stepping It Up for Susan

My friend Susan is away on a much deserved and earned Stampin’ Up! vacation. While she is away she asked team members to make “Simple Saturday” and “Step It Up Sunday” cards to share on her blog (  I am always up for a challenge and teamed up with my very talented friend and fellow demonstrator,  Ramsey.  I thought I had the easy job as Ramsey agreed to come up with a card and I just had to “step it up”. Well, when Ramsey sent me a photo of her card my first thought was, WOW! This is a beautiful card and already stepped up (with layers, double punched daisy, and a faceted gem). How am I going to “Step It Up?

Here’s Ramsey’s card:

My solution was to literally “Step It Up”.  You know how I love fun fold cards so I decided to make an easel card.

This is a really easy card to make. The base of my card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Daffodil Delight, 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 Old Olive, and 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White with a 1 x 4 strip of DSP from the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack. The sentiment is from Birthday Blooms, stamped in Old Olive, cut with the Layering Ovals Framelits, and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. To make the easel I cut a piece of 3 x 6 1/4 Daffodil Delight cardstock and scored it at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2. I adhered it to the Daffodil Delight card base before adding the old olive and whisper white layers.

The stems are stamped on a piece of 2 3/4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White and layered on a piece of 2 7/8 x 5 3/8 Old Olive. I stamped the daisy on the Whisper White and then twice on scraps of Daffodil Delight. I punched out both yellow daisies with the Daisy Punch and offset them before adhering on top of the stamped image. I layered the stamped images on a piece of Old Olive that measures 2 7/8 x 5 3/8.  I wrapped some Crushed Curry Mini Chevron Ribbon around this layer and tied a bow. I adhered the layered image to the bottom of the daffodil delight (below the score line) so the image will prop up behind the sentiment.

My grasses did not turn out as nice as Ramsey’s (and I think she may have used Pear Pizzazz ink or stamped off). The ribbon serves to step it up with some added texture (and cover up my inky mistake).

E is for Elliptical Easel Fun Fold

It’s Ariane again, this time to showcase my mom’s Mother’s Day card. As she is in the middle of her fun fold series, I tried to follow suit and created this elliptical easel card.


The nice part about this card is you can use any sentiment.


The first thing to do is to prepare the base. I used a pool party card base and placed the scalloped oval framelit over it with a tiny bit at the top overhanging. You want the top to be connected.


Then you want to cut out another scalloped oval which will become the card front. You also want to score the top of the card so it can fold. Make sure when you score you flip the card inside out so the card folds like a mountain and not a valley.


To do the card top, I cut out a whisper white oval using the largest oval framelit and layered it on top. I used a stamp from Paper Pumpkin for the sentiment. To do the cascading flowers I used several punches to punch an assortment of flowers in So Saffron and Pink Pirouette.  I popped up a few using dimensionals. For the finishing touch, I added three pearls, which I forgot to picture, whoops (they can be seen in the first picture).

All that is left is to assemble all the pieces. First, you want to add another whisper white oval to the inside of the card. I left it blank so I could write a message. You could stamp a message as well. Then you want to adhere the card front and the card base together. To do this only place glue below the crease on the top of the card base. Then try to line up the scallops and place the card base on top. The final step is to create something to prop up the card front. I used a leftover flower, attached it to a dimensional and then placed it inside the card. That’s it!


The best part about this card is it is so easy to modify. A few years ago, for Valentine’s Day, I used this technique with the heart framelits to make my parents Valentine’s cards. My mom has it on display in her craft room

Hope you have a day full of stamping.
