Flowering Tulips Fun Fold & More!

I love May with everything starting to bloom and the possibilities that come with spring. (*Check out the Stamp-n-Storage Spring Sale below!) We moved in to our new home last summer so I missed all the spring blooms. It’s a surprise every day to see what’s popping up in our yard.

My friend Caroline loves to garden. She always has a beautiful flower garden. I made this fun fold tulip card for her birthday.
Stampin' Up! Flowering Tulips fun fold birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I was inspired to try this fold from a beautiful Christmas card created by Jan B. She called this unique fold a “floating screen card”.

I love the Tulips Dies! They are a must have for any floral enthusiast. Not only can you create layered tulip fields, but you can also create three types of layered tulip blossoms, perfect for creating your own tulip bouquet! Simply die cut the coordinating dies with contrasting cardstock colors, and then fold the pieces together to make beautiful tulip blossoms. These dies are sized perfectly for the front of a card. You can purchase them on their own or buy the bundle and save 10%.

I cut the tulip dies in poppy parade and calypso coral and sponged the ends with poppy parade. The leaves were cut with Old Olive and sponged with Old Olive. I love the way this  adds texture and depth. I built the tulip on a white panel cut with the Tasteful labels dies.

This fun fold is much easier to create than it looks!  There’s several layers to this card but it’s just simple cuts. Here’s the measurements:

  • Poppy Parade cardstock – 5 3/4 x 11 score at 2, 4, 4 1/2, 6 1/2, 7, 9
  • Poppy Parade cardstock – 8 1/4 x 3 3/4 score and fold at 4 1/8
  • Pool Party cardstock – 8 pieces @ 5 5/8 x 1 7/8, 2 pieces @ 4 x 3 5/8, 3 5/8 x 1 7/8
  • Flowering Fields DSP Design 1 (tulips) – 4 pieces @ 5 1/2 x 1 3/4, 3 7/8 x 3 1/2, 3 1/2 x 1 3/4
  • Flowering Fields DSP Design 2 (polka dots) – 4 pieces @ 5 1/2 x 1 3/4
  • Basic White – 3 x 4 to cut Tasteful Labels Die, 3 7/8 x 3 1/2 (inside)
  • Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral, Old Olive cardstock- scraps to die cut tulip & leaves

Cut pieces out from the top and bottom of the card base. Line up cardstock @ 4″ then cut from edge to 1 inch. Line up at 7″ and cut to 1 inch. Then cut between the 2 cuts. Do this at the top and bottom.

The rest is simple…Layer all the cardstock and DSP pieces together and adhere to the card base on front and back.

Stamp sentiment inside card. Adhere the center piece so it is “floating” on the panel.

I added some pool party sheer ribbon around the card and tied a bow to keep it closed. This card fits in a 6 x 6 envelope to mail.

Sending Smiles

Today’s project uses one of my favorite new bundles from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog, Sending Smiles.
Stamping' Up! Sending Smiles bridge fold all occasion card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I love the new In Colors. Parakeet Party may be my new favorite green! I created a fun fold “bridge” card using the new Parakeet Party In Color DSP with Sweet Sorbet, Daffodil Delight, and Parakeet Party Ink. The sentiment and flowers are from the Sending Smiles stamp set. I used the coordinated dies to die cut the flower and word die. You can add a stamped message or hand written note on the back of this fun fold card. The stamped flower on the back just makes me smile!

I decorated the envelope with the same DSP and a stamped flower.

The Sending Smiles Bundle will be available starting May 3rd when the new catalog launches. I told myself I did not need another floral set; however, this one is so versatile with great sentiments for any occasion!  Plus, I just LOVE the coordinating dies!

Happy Mother’s Day!

I “just want to say” Happy Mother’s Day!
Here’s the card I made for my mom.
Stampin' Up! Art Gallery Dies fun fold Mother's Day card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I love word dies and this one from the Floral Gallery Dies has so many possibilities.  Pair it with the Art Gallery Stamp Set and you’ll not only save 10% on the bundle, you’ll also have a variety of sentiments to use for any occasion. Here’s a look at the Art Gallery Bundle.
Stampin' Up! Art Gallery Bundle - visit jsutstampin.com for inspiration and ordering information - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I used the Well Suited Designer Series Paper for this card. Many of the patterns are more masculine in nature but this navy floral is one of my  favorites. Here’s a look at all the different designs.

Stampin' Up! Peaceful Moments, All Dressed Up, and Art Gallery Dies fun fold Mother's Day card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I stamped sentiments from Peaceful Moments and Dressed To Impress in Night of Navy ink. I like the way this floral patterned paper coordinates with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder.  It’s hard to see in the photo but I added an embossed layer on the front of the card.
