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!!!!

Simply Scored Fun Fold for the Pals Blog Hop

2019 April Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals’ May  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects with “More Than One Score.” 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.

I love fun fold cards! I have been wanting to make this one for some time now but, the name, “Impossible Fold”, sounded intimidating.  Let me just say, this card is anything but impossible!  In fact, it is a really simple fun fold to make!

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

I used the Free As a Bird Stamp Set and and Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper which will be available in the new annual catalog when it debuts June 4th. Demonstrators were able to see and play with new products at Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event.  This suite was used for one of the make ‘n take projects.  I like to challenge myself and use the make ‘n take products to make something a little different.

This fun fold starts with a piece of 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 cardstock.  A few simple scores (4 to be exact) turns what would be a flat card in to a cool pop up!

Stampin Up Impossible Fun Fold Card base - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I will share the full color tutorial with directions and measurements on my blog tomorrow.  Make sure you subscribe to my blog so you don’t miss out! Here’s a look at the side view.

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

I love the new scalloped lace trim too! (I’ll share how I made the fun banner tomorrow.) I had fun coloring the birds with the Stampin’ Blends. You could just as easily watercolor with ink or use Stampin’ Up!’s watercolor pencils. Just think of all the color possibilities for these cute little birds!

This fun fold card would look great propped up on a desk or bookcase.  Don’t forget to check back tomorrow for the photo tutorial so you can make one for someone special!

A Showcase of Valentines

I am often so busy creating that I don’t always get to photograph and blog about each card or gift I make. To me what’s most important is to share that handmade kindness and make someone smile. Today I have three different Valentine’s Day cards I made this year which I did manage to take a photograph or two before sending.

My first card today was for my son. It was made using products from the All My Love Suite.

Stampin Up Valentines Day card idea using the Meant to Be Stamp Set and Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My son loves to snowboard and he is heading to Colorado at the end of this month for a ski vacation. I know he will appreciate the little gift I tucked inside to enjoy the slopes in Vail! This card is clean & simple and full of love!

Yesterday I shared one of my favorite Sale-A-Bration stamp sets, Part of My Story.  I promised to show you another card I made using the same sentiment.  (If you missed yesterday’s post, click HERE to view.)  I love that this sentiment can be used any time of the year.  I enjoyed making these simple Valentine cards for my friends!

Stampin Up Thinking of You card for a friend Valentine's Day card idea using Part of My Story Stamp Set and Be mine Stitched Framelits Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used Stampin’ Up!’s Whisper White note cards & envelopes which made creating quick, easy, and economical!  Great for when having to make multiples! I also used the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies to cut the hearts (just like I did for all of today’s cards). These dies are gorgeous with stitching and scalloped details and can be used year round for wedding, anniversary, or other lovely occasions!

Stampin Up Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies can be used for all occasions - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Check out the long scalloped die at the bottom.  You can use this die to add detail and stitching on an envelope flap and much more! How cool is that?! (Special thanks to Mary Fish for sharing that tip!)

Next, here’s a pop up gift card holder I made for my daughter. Her college apartment is across the street from Panera so I know she will enjoy this treat.Stampin Up Pop Up Gift Card Holder idea using Well Written Framelits Dies and Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love how the heart gift card coordinates with the colors in the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Check back tomorrow and I will share all the details how to make this pop up gift card holder.

Previously I shared a project I made for my husband.  I’m giving him “the key to my heart”.  If you missed that project you can view it HERE.

I hope you are surrounded by love today. I am reminded of a simple poem I read to my students recently… “There are silver ships, There are gold ships, But the best of all is friendship!”

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

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.
Stampin Up Joyous Noel and Snow is Glistening Fun Fold heat embossed Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
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.
Stampin Up Joyous Noel, Merry Christmas to All, and Snow is Glistening Fun Fold heat embossed Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I think this card would look pretty on a mantle or side table.

Sneak Peek…Share What You Love

There’s no denying how much I love to mix and match colors and patterns (in home decor as well as card making)!  Stampin’ Up!’s color coordination (and quality) is what drew me to become a demonstrator. It is easy to create when everything coordinates! Today I have a sneak peek at some absolutely gorgeous new designer series paper, Share What You Love. It will be available in the new annual catalog.

Stampin Up Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper - For inspiration and ordering information visit www.juststampin.com Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My photo does not do this paper justice! These are handpainted designs on heavyweight sheets. You get 24 12 x 12 sheets: 4 each of 6 double sided designs.  Four of the designs have a translucent pearlized finish. I made two fun fold cards today using the Love What You Do Stamp Set and Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Stampin Up Fun Fold card ideas using Share What You Love Suite -Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I was inspired by Linda Droege’s Double Triangle Fun Fold card I received at OnStage.  (You can view Linda’s card HERE.) I love fun fold cards and chose the new Share What You Love Suite to “share what I love”. I changed my cards up a little by embossing one card and adding a belly band to the other.

Stampin Up Love What You Do and Perennial Birthday Fun Fold Card idea - Jeanie Stark SrampinUp

This is a simple fun fold to do.  You can make both cards from 1 sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock. Here’s the details:

  1. Score the 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock in the middle on each side: With the long side at the top, score at 5 1/2. Turn your paper and score on the short side at 4 1/4.
  2. Next, you need to remove the score blade from the Stampin’ Trimmer so you can cut your paper on the diagonal.
  3. Fold and burnish along the score lines with a bone folder.
  4. Cut a 4 x 5 1/4 coordinating cardstock on the diagonal to get 2 triangles.
  5. Cut a piece of 3 3/4 x 5 DSP on the diagonal to get 2 triangles.
  6. *For the first card you need to emboss one of the diagonal cardstock pieces using the Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Adhere layers to the card base.
  7.  Stamp sentiments on Shimmery Whisper White cardstock using Tranquil Tide ink. Cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. *I cut an extra circle to adhere to the back of the doily for a finished look.
  8. Adhere stitched circles to Pearlized Doilies.*Make sure you just put adhesive on part of the doily so you can open the card.
  9. Cut 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White for inside card.  Stamp and add 3/4 x 4 DSP border.
  10. Embellish with Ribbon, Artisan Pearls, and/or flower (fussy cut from DSP).Stampin Up Fun Fold card idea using Share What You Love Suite -Jeanie Stark StampinUp
  11. *Optional belly band measures 1 x 10 and is wrapped loosely around the card and adhered in front. I added some retired Mint Macaron Ribbon (available while supplies last in the Clearance Rack) before adhering the doily with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The belly band slides off to open the card on this version.

Of course I had to dress up my envelopes to coordinate.

What do you think of this fun fold and the Share What You Love Suite?  Do you prefer it with the belly band or without?

If you would like to make these cards I have some great news…the stamp set, designer series paper, pearlized doilies, and embossing folder I used on these cards will be available to purchase May 1st!  You don’t have to wait until June!!  Stampin’ Up! is “spreading the love” with an early release of the Share What You Love Suite. You will be able to choose from 3 different bundles and each bundle comes with FREE product!

I was so excited to get Linda’s Double Triangle Fun Fold Card!  I have been wanting to make one of these fun folds and hers is just over the top gorgeous! I love everything about it from the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper to the organza ribbon she dyed to match.  Here’s how it looks opened.

Card Created by Ramsey Alexander

This card is just beautiful in person! Ramsey used the Brusho Crystal Colour ink crystals to watercolor over the heat embossed butterfly from the Beautiful Day stamp set.  I need to pull out my Crystal Colours and play.  Ramsey has done several of these cards and they come out beautiful and different every time.  This is a fun watercolor technique!

This card is so Jill! She is so much fun to be around! The Lemon Zest Stamp set has fun sentiments.  Check out what she stamped inside.

Stampin Up Beautiful Bouquet friend card idea - For inspiration, ordering and more visit www.juststampin.com Jeanie Stark StampinUp
Card Created by Deb Echelmeyer

Deb is so creative! I love how she used the flower stems from the Bouquet Bunch Dies to make a lilac bush!  (Which just happen to be my favorite flower scent!)  Deb added texture and layers to this beautiful card using the Brick Wall Embossing Folder and Layering Dies. Such a pretty spring card!

Stampin Up Birthday Blooms and Bouquet Bunch friend card idea - for inspiration, ordering and more, visit www.juststampin.com  Jeanie Stark  StampinUp
Card Created by Rosanne Mulhern

Rosanne’s card is another example of adding layers to create a beautiful card! Like Deb, she used the Beautiful Bunch Framelits to cut out the flowers and leaves. Even though this card has many flowers and layers, it has a clean & simple feel with the black & white background. I love the sentiment (and font) she used from the Birthday Blooms stamp set. It is retiring in May but it’s definitely one I will keep and continue to use. I love all the sentiments and beautiful flowers in this set.  Check it out below and be sure to get it before it’s gone!

I so appreciate the stamping community and my stamping friends! Everyone so willingly shares their ideas and talent.  Together we really can make a difference as we share our handmade kindness one card at a time! Make someone smile today!!

Thanks for stopping by!  I appreciate you taking the time to comment and I love it when you shop my online store.  Your support helps me to keep doing what I love!!  Everyone who shops with me this month will receive one of my swap cards (you can see it HERE) in addition to my monthly thank you gifts (card kits and more).

Have a wonderful day! It’s a beautiful day here in Hagerstown, Maryland and I’m going to soak up the sunshine on my walk this afternoon!

Crafting Forever Flip Fold Card

Crafting Forever is one of my favorite stamp sets in the annual catalog and I am thrilled it will carry over to the new catalog.  I have used it to make cards, magnets, bookmarks, and many gifts.  I also love to stamp my envelopes with some of the different stamps and sentiments from this set. It was the perfect choice for my swap cards for OnStage.

Stampin Up Crafting Forever fun fold friend card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

If you follow my blog you know I love fun fold cards. I used the “artsy” paper from Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper, my Stampin’ Blends, and several different stamps from the set for my flip fold card. Here’s some photos showing how it opens as well as how the flap adheres on the back.

I had so much fun stamping and coloring these cards.  I chose my colors for the card base from the colors in the designer series paper: crushed curry, emerald envy, and flirty flamingo.

Stampin Up Crafting Forever fun fold friend card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These are pretty simple to make.  When I am mass producing I like to do everything in steps.  I cut all my cardstock, then I stamped, punched, and colored.  Final step was fussy cutting the little stamp blocks and assembling. Here’s the measurements I got from Rachel Tessman:

Card Base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored in half at 4 1/4, scrap to punch 2 1/4″ circle

Basic Black: 4 1/4 x 3 to layer DSP,  1 1/2 x 7 scored and folded at 4 1/4 for the flap

DSP: 4 x 2 3/4

Whisper White: 4 x 5 1/4 for inside , scraps to stamp and punch two 2″ circles and block

I stamped the sentiments and images in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink so I could color the images with my Stampin’ Blends. To assemble, adhere the DSP to the basic black layer and adhere to card base. Wrap the flap around the card and make sure it is centered on the front before adhering the flap on the back of the card.  Layer the stamped image on the circle and adhere to the front flap.  Open the card and adhere the sentiment over the circle on the inside. To keep the card closed, adhere the block image with a Stampin’ Dimensional so the flap can tuck in slightly.

L is for Lots of Lavender

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today I’m showcasing the Lots of Lavender Stamp Set.  You can earn this stamp set for FREE with an order of $50 or more this month.

Stampin Up Lots of Lavender stamp set - Free with a qualifying purchase through March 31st. Visit www.juststampin.com Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This is a photopolymer stamp set which makes two-step stamping a breeze or you can choose to color it with pencils, markers, or watercolor. I chose to use ink and blender pen to color today.  It was quick & easy to make this clean & simple note card.

Stampin Up Lots of Lavender narrow note card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the new Narrow Note Cards & envelopes from the Occasions catalog. How cute is this card?! The flower bunch fits perfectly on the card and I love the long and narrow envelopes too! Lavender symbolizes grace and calmness. I have lots of it growing in my garden.  I like to dry it and give to people. This set makes the perfect note card to give with flowers.

I used the narrow note card to make a second card for today, a joy fold.

Stampin Up Lots of Lavender joy fold celebrate card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The note card made this fun fold even easier to put together! I stamped the image on the back of the note card (so it opens on the left side) with Basic Black Archival Ink and colored with my blender pen. I know I’ve mentioned this before but, you don’t want to pick up ink from the pad with blender pens (or Aqua Painter).  You should squeeze your pad before you open it to get some of the ink on the lid and use the ink in the lid to pick up color. You could also just put a few drops of reinker in the lid.

I cut 7/8″ from my standard card base then embossed the front with the new Petal Pair embossing folder. This is one of the two embossing folders you get in the set. I also embossed celebrate (from Celebrations Duo) on a 1 x 5 1/2 piece of cardstock and adhered it on the left against the fold. I centered the note card and adhered the back on the inside of the card and folded the flap in the front.  I tied the beautiful Whisper White organza ribbon to help keep the note card closed.  It’s easy to slide out to open.

This is such a fun and easy card to make! Purple is my daughter’s favorite color and she gives us many reasons to celebrate! I love the other little flower in this set too!  It makes a nice accent for inside the card or on the envelope. So pretty!
