Flowers For Every Season Christmas Card

Today I’m showcasing my first Christmas card of the season using one of my favorite Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalog, Flowers For Every Season.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Gleaming and Flowers For Every Season Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I really like this color combination of Just Jade, Poppy Parade, and Flirty Flamingo. What do you think, Christmas colors or not?

There’s a couple of sneak peeks on my card today. The sentiment is from a returning favorite from last year’s Holiday Catalog, Christmas Gleaming. It was definitely one of my favorite stamps and I’m so glad it’s back! It will be available (starting Aug. 4th) along with the coordinating Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack.

I love ribbon and add it to most projects. The ribbon on my card is from All The Trimmings Ribbon Combo Pack and is gold-trimmed for some added sparkle.

I love coordinating envelopes with my cards! I got this envelope idea from my super creative and talented friend, Rosanne Mulhern (heartfeltstamping.com). She decorated her envelope like this using coordinating DSP strips and I couldn’t wait to try it! This seemed like the perfect card to mirror the layers on my envelope.

Here’s what I used on today’s card:

Stamp Sets: Gleaming Christmas  Papers: Flowers For Every Season DSP, Brights 6 x 6 DSP, Thick Whisper White, Just Jade Whisper White  Inks: Poppy Parade  Accessories:  Tailored Tag Punch, Layering Circles Dies, 1/8″Poppy Parade Gold Trimmed Ribbon, Stampin’ Seal, Stampin’ Dimensionals

A Little Something to Brighten Your Day

Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin Box of Sunshine stamp set with Daisy punch and Flowers for Every Season lip balm holder - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I can’t seem to stop playing with the Paper Pumpkin Box of Sunshine kit! I have made a bunch of sunshine boxes and one of the things I put in them was lip balm! I made fun holders for the tic tacs and hand sanitizers I put in the boxes (you can view those HERE) and decided to make something for the lip balm too! Here’s the one I made using the contents of the kit with some Poppy Parade cardstock and gingham ribbon.

I cut up one of the card fronts for the sentiment piece on the inside. I was able to make four of these from one card front. One of the things I love about my Paper Pumpkin kits is once I’ve used all the contents I still have the stamp set (and ink spot) to use again and again. I love the sentiments and the sun image that was included in the June kit! I attempted to make the sun like the die cuts in the kit so I sponged crushed curry and poppy parade ink on whisper white card stock with my sponge daubers.  Then I heat embossed the sun using Versamark and Gold Embossing Powder and fussy cut it out. *Here’s cool tip for fussy cutting the sun… Cut or punch a circle around the sun then use your scissors to snip around the rays. Quick & easy!

I love the collection of stamps from my Paper Pumpkin kits. I keep a 3 ring binder as a reference showing the stamps included in each kit.  It’s easy to flip through when I’m looking for a sentiment or image. It makes it quick to find exactly what I need.

Normally I would punch or use a die to cut the sentiment out but I decided to go with fussy cutting around the words and I really like how it turned out! I think it adds a little more interest and highlights this wonderful sentiment.  I hope it makes the recipient want to open it up to see what’s inside!

I had so much fun making these for my friends & family that I ordered a bunch more lip balm from Amazon to make these for the residents at our local nursing home. I wanted to do something special for them during this pandemic. I was concerned about giving them candy, etc. due to different allergies and knew that lip balm is something they can all use. I made different colors to coordinate with the lip balm. (It’s all about the presentation! LOL) Here’s a look at each of the different patterns I used from the Flowers For Every Season Designer Series Paper.

Here’s the details…*You can make 3 from each sheet of cardstock and 4 from each 6 x 6 piece of DSP!

Measurements

  • Cardstock (Bumblebee or Blushing Bride): 3 x 6 scored at 1 mark before 2 3/4 and 1  mark before 3 3/8 (2 11/16 and 3 5/16), scrap to stamp and cut sentiment
  • DSP (Flowers For Every Season): 2 1/2 x 2 3/4
  • Whisper White: 1 3/4 x 2 3/4 (for inside), scrap to punch 2 daisies and sentiment
  • Bumblebee: scrap to punch 1/2″ circle
  • Ribbon : 4″

Directions

  1. Fold the cardstock on one of the score lines then make 2 cuts up to the second score line.
  2. Open and fold the cardstock like a book.  The middle section pops forward like a step on the inside to hold the chapstick.
  3. Adhere the DSP to the front. Close the card and punch through all layers with the Detailed Trio Punch.
  4. Stamp sentiment in coordinating ink, fussy cut and adhere to the front.
  5. Punch 2 daisies using the medium daisy punch. Offset and adhere together. Punch 1/2 circle from Bumblebee cardstock and adhere to the center. Attach daisy to the card with Stampin’ Dimensional.
  6. Stamp sentiment on Whisper White cardstock and adhere inside. Add the chapstick.
  7. Thread ribbon through the hole and tie a simple knot. savingpng-1

Double Z-Fold Tutorial

Yesterday I posted a double Z fun fold card featuring the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle. Here’s another look at that card. (*You can click HERE if you would like to view the original post.)

I love the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle! This bundle is one of My Favorite Things from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!  You can see all of My Favorite Things HERE. Today I have another version of this Double Z-Fold card to share with you.

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers fun fold thank you card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Whenever I make a card I like to try different things so I usually end up with more than one. One difference in the two cards is obviously the colors. I used different patterns from the Flowers For Every Season Designer Series Paper and cardstock to coordinate.  I love the new In Colors and can’t decide which is my favorite, Misty Moonlight or Just Jade. Another difference in my cards is the sunflower. I cut the sunflower on the Misty Moonlight card from patterned DSP. For the Just Jade card I stamped the sunflower with So Saffron ink on Bumblebee cardstock. What do you think? Do you have a preference?

Here’s the details to make this card:

Measurements

  • Card Base (Misty Moonlight or Just Jade): 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2 and 8 1/4
  • Second Z-fold layer (Cinnamon Cider): 3 1/4 x 10 scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2
  • Embossed layers (Cinnamon Cider): 3 1/8 x 4 3/8 for top panel, 2 pieces 3 1/8 x 2 5/8 for bottom 2 panels
  • DSP strips (Flowers For Every Season): 1 x 4 3/8 for top panel, 2 pieces 1 x 2 5/8 for bottom 2 panels
  • Bumblebee cardstock: 2 pieces 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 to cut sunflower layers (or cut 1 from DSP for bottom layer)
  • scraps of Just Jade (to stamp and cut 4 leaves), Cinnamon Cider (to stamp and cut center of sunflower), and Whisper White (to stamp sentiments with Bumblebee Ink)
  • Just Jade Ribbon : 8 1/2″

Directions

  1. Fold and burnish score lines.
  2. Emboss the 3 Cinnamon Cider layers with Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. (*I have an older retired brick embossing folder so I embossed it first with the Tasetful Textile embossing folder then ran it through the Big Shot again with the Brick embossing folder to achieve the textured look you would get with the newer EF.)
  3. Sponge the brick using a sponge dauber and the Cinnamon Cider Classic Ink Pad.
  4. Adhere the embossed brick pieces to the Cinnamon Cider Z fold base.
  5. Adhere the DSP strips to the brick layers.
  6. Adhere Tear & Tape to the back of the ribbon. Peel and adhere to the brick and secure on the back the piece at the bottom. Z fold tutorial - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
  7. Adhere the Z fold layers. The easiest way to assemble is to line up the top first so it is centered. Then lift the top and add multipurpose glue and secure it down. The bottom piece gets glue all over the back then just close the card on top.
  8. Stamp sunflower on Bumblebee cardstock with So Saffron Ink and cut with sunflower outline die. (Or cut DSP with die.)
  9. Cut an adhesive sheet 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 and adhere to Bumblebee cardstock. Cut out detailed sunflower (top layer).  Stampin Up Sunflower Dies and Adhesive Sheets - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
  10. Peel and adhere detailed sunflower to sunflower layer. *if you do not have adhesive sheets you can use multipurpose liquid glue and a sponge dauber to apply glue to back of detailed die.
  11. Stamp sunflower on Cinnamon Cider cardstock with Cinnamon Cider ink and cut out with die. Snip petals off and adhere to center of sunflower.
  12. Stamp 4 leaves on Just Jade cardstock with Just Jade ink and cut with leaf die.
  13. Adhere sunflower to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere leaves with glue dots.
  14. Stamp sentiments on Whisper White with Bumblebee Ink and cut with paper snips, dies or punch. Adhere to card. Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers fun fold card ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Can you spot any other differences? (This reminds me of those pictures in Highlights magazines from the doctors office when I was little! I loved doing those!) Which one do you prefer? I’d love to hear from you. Leave a comment below.
