A Sentimental Fun Fold Card for the Pals Blog Hop

2019-September Blog Hop Badge

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “It’s the Sentiment That Counts”  – showcasing new or favorite sentiments as the focal point of their project.  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.

Stampin’ Up! has so many great sentiments to choose from it was really hard to pick a favorite. Then inspiration hit me as I was decorating my home for fall.

Thanksgiving pillow

I love the sentiments on this pillow (enough to buy two to sit on my dining room chairs). It really sums up how I feel! There’s inspiration everywhere! I love a challenge and decided to recreate this “sentimental” pillow for my card.

Stampin' Up! Country Home and To A Wild Rose Fun Fold Thanksgiving card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used two stamp sets for my sentiments, To A Wild Rose and Country Home. This pop up fun fold design really showcases the sentiment layer and makes it the focal point. I used the Stamparatus and the new Delicata Golden Glitz Metallic Ink to stamp my sentiments. I stamped grateful twice, first in Golden Glitz then with Soft Suede so it would be darker like the pillow but I also wanted it to shine like the others.

It’s hard to see the shine in my photo but trust me, it’s there. I punched and cut the leaves from Gold Foil and glued them on before embossing the sentiment layer with the Subtle Embossing Folder to give it the look of fabric like the pillow. (Sometimes I do go a bit overboard when I’m trying to recreate the look; however, I really like how this turned out and probably wouldn’t have thought to do that if it wasn’t for my inspiration piece.)

You can stamp a message and/or write a note on the back of the card. The sentiment I used is from Country Home. This card can sit on a shelf or desk and folds flat to fit in an envelope.

 

Check back tomorrow for the tutorial how to make this fun fold card. You can use this design with other sentiments for many different occasions! Be sure to subscribe to my blog so you don’t miss out on project ideas and more!

I is for Inspiration

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ll be sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! Today’s card is an Inspirational fun fold pop up card. This fun fold card is much easier to make than it looks.

Stampin Up Believe You Can fun fold pop up card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love this inspirational quote by Teddy Roosevelt from the Believe You Can Stamp Set.  This reminds me of the book, The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper.  I read this story to my Pre-K students the first day of school and it is so cute to hear them say “I think I can” when they try something new.

I used the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper as my base.  It is cut at 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 1, 2 3/4, 3 3/4, 5 1/2, 7 1/4, 8 1/4, and 10. I chose coordinating colors from the DSP for the layered sentiment panel.  I stamped the sentiment on Whisper White using Memento Ink. I added a little color with my Stampin’ Markers and Blends. Here’s the measurements for the layered pieces:

  • 2 1/4 x 4 1/4 Whisper White
  • 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 Mint Macaron
  • 2 3/4 x 4 3/4 Garden Green

I added a piece of Mint Macaron textile ribbon around the base and tied a bow. For a finishing touch I added 3 Rhinestone Basic Jewels.  This card folds flat and fits in a medium size envelope to mail.

What a fun surprise when the recipient opens the card! Just press down on the fold at the top and this inspirational sentiment pops up.  Perfect reminder to display on a desk or bookshelf. Why not try something new today and make this fun fold?! Click HERE for a photo tutorial. You can do it!

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.

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!!!!
