Chalkboard Easel Card Tutorial

Yesterday I posted several card ideas for teachers, school employees, or your favorite student. Back to school this year is certainly different during the current pandemic. With so many changes facing teachers, students, and parents, it’s nice to let them know you’re thinking of them.  Everyone loves to feel appreciated and these easel cards are quick & easy to make to brighten someone’s day!

Stampin' Up! In Good Taste thank you and inspirational chalkboard easel card card ideas for teachers or students - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s the details to create a chalkboard easel card:

Measurements

  • Card Base (Thick Very Vanilla): 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Basic Black: 3 3/4 x 3 3/4
  • In Good Taste Designer Series Paper: 2 strips 3/4 x 4 1/4, 2 strips 3/4 x 5 1/2

Directions

  1. Fold and burnish the card base.
  2. Line up the open end of the card base at the 3/4″ mark (along the right side of the trimmer) and cut up to the 1″ mark.  Flip the card and do the same on the other side of the card.
  3. Turn the card sideways so the cut marks line up at the 1″ mark (along the right side of the trimmer). Start at 3/4″ and cut to the 3 1/2″ mark (to remove piece between the cut lines).
  4. Stamp sentiment on black cardstock with Versamark Ink and emboss with white embossing powder using the Heat Tool.
  5. Use a sponge or tissue to dab White Craft Ink around the sentiment. Swirl in a circular motion as if you were erasing a chalkboard.
  6. Adhere black piece to card base.
  7. Adhere DSP strips along the top and bottom first, then adhere DSP along the sides overlapping the top and bottom piece.
  8. Embellish chalkboard as desired.

Here’s a little more details for each one…

Stamp sets: Harvest Hellos, Celebrate Sunflowers. Die cut letters using Playful Alphabet Dies. Create medal with Layering Circles Dies, Stitched Stars Dies, and Misty Moonlight 1/4″ Ribbon.

Stamp Sets: Nothing Better Than, Daisy Lane, Forever Fern. Embellish with Stitched Stars Dies.

Stamp Sets: Free As A Bird, Ornate Thanks, Good Morning Magnolia. Die Cut greenery from Sunflowers Dies. Punch vase from Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper using Vases Builder Punch. Create banner using Banners Pick A Punch. Flower punched from Confetti Flowers Border Punch.

Stamp Sets: Massive Thanks, Good Morning Magnolia. Create Banner using Banners Pick A Punch and Stitched Stars Dies.

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.

Impossible Fun Fold Card Tutorial

Yesterday I shared a fun fold card called the “Impossible Card Fold”.  I’m here to show you it’s anything but impossible! It’s super simple and fun to make. Here’s another look at my card.

Stampin Up Free As a Bird Fun Fold All Occasion card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s the details how to make it…

  1. 1.Start with a piece of 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card stock.
  2. With the 4 1/4″ side at the top of the score board, score at 2 1/8.

2. With the 5 1/2″ side at the top, score at 2 3/4″ just to the score line across the middle.

3.  Flip so the other 5 1/2″ side is at the top and score at 1″ and 4 1/2″ just to the middle score line.

4. Cut along the score lines on the 5 1/2″ side from the top to the middle score line and from the bottom to the middle score line. (*Don’t cut the middle score line.)

5. Now comes the fun part! Hold one side (I held the left side) and flip the other side back and then fold the center piece forward. It’s that simple!!!!!

To decorate, I cut 2 pieces of DSP 2 x 2 5/8 and 2 pieces 7/8 x 2. The stamped banner piece measures 3/4 x 4 1/4 and the layer measures 7/8 x 4 1/4. I put both banner pieces together and slid them in the top of the Everyday Label Punch. *Make sure it’s centered before punching. Offset the top layer before adhering.  Stamp sentiment and punch a hole with the 1/8 ” Handheld Circle Punch. (A shout out to Linda Heller for this cool punch trick!!!)

Take a 6″ piece of ribbon and fold in half.  Thread through the hole then slip the ends through the loop. Adhere across the front of the card.  Trim ends of the ribbon. 

Stampin Up Free As a Bird Impossible Fun Fold All Occasion card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I fussy cut the flower from a scrap of DSP and adhered with a glue dot. I stamped the birds on Whisper White with Soft Suede ink and let dry before coloring with my Stampin’ Blends. I cut it out with the Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered to the card. This card folds flat and fits in Stampin’ Up!’s standard medium envelopes. I decorated the envelope flap with the same beautiful Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.

I hope you will give this fun fold a try now that you see it’s NOT “Impossible” at all!!!!
