Celebrate Sunflowers for the Pals Blog Hop

Blog Hop July 2020

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team is showcasing “Gifts From the Garden.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers fun fold all occasion card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The inspiration for my card today came from this garden photo I took many years ago.

When my son was little we planted sunflowers.  All summer long he watched them grow and got so excited the taller they grew.  He couldn’t wait to get dressed, run outside, and stand beside the sunflowers to see how tall they were in comparison to himself. He would report daily and tell me it was as tall as his “boo boo”, up to his knees… on up until they were over his head. He is all grown up now and started a new job this week.

I chose Celebrate Sunflowers to make a card to congratulate my son. This bundle is one of My Favorite Things from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!  You can see all of My Favorite Things HERE.

My card features four of the new In Colors (Misty Moonlight, Cinnamon Cider, Bumblebee, and Just Jade). The double Z fun fold design was perfect to showcase this “growing” sunflower. If you look at the side view you can see how it got it’s name.Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers fun fold all occasion card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love the different sentiments and fonts in this stamp set! They are versatile and work for thank you cards and many different celebrations…birthday, graduation, job promotion, etc. The sentiment I used inside was perfect for my growing sunflower!

Check back tomorrow to see another version of this card as well as all the details to make this fun fold! *See below for a complete list of the products I used.

Here’s a fun fact about sunflowers.

Mystery Blog Candy Winner

Blog Hop Mystery Candy badge

Earlier this week I participated in the 10th Anniversary Pals Blog Hop! We promised to announce our mystery blog candy winners today!  Do you want to know what I’m giving away as my mystery blog candy surprise? One of the projects I shared for the Blog Hop was a Honey Bee Treat Holder made with the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies.

Stampin' Up! Honey Bee Mini Curvy Keepsake Box idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies was a Holiday Favorite and is still available online.  I love to make little gifts to give to friends, my hairdresser, the ladies at the post office, and others who provide services throughout the month. I was thrilled when I found these adorable Lindt chocolate bees and ladybugs at Target.  They are the perfect compliment to the Honey Bee Stamp Set and Detailed Bee Dies (and the Little Ladybug Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies).

For inspiration using these candy bees and ladybugs with Stampin' Up! Honey Bee Bundle and Little Ladybug Stamp Set and Coordinating ladybug dies visit www.juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Each month I feature a Stamp of the Month on my blog. This month I am featuring the Honey Bee Stamp Set and Detailed Bee Dies. When you shop with me I send you a handmade thank you card in the mail. This month’s thank you card is a fun fold pocket card I featured on my blog HERE. (Click HERE if you would like the tutorial.) In addition, I offer 3 (or more) FREE exclusive card tutorials featuring the stamp of the month when you order $40 or more. A Bonus each month is a Free card kit to make one of the cards featured in the tutorial if you purchase the Stamp of the month. Another special this month (because it’s my Stampin’ Anniversary and Birthday month) is a sweet Honey Bee jar I featured HERE. (There’s also a drawing entry for the Little Ladybug Stamp set with any order in March.) I appreciate each and every order and love to reward my customers! And I’m excited to share ALL OF THIS as my Mystery Blog Candy! The lucky winner will get….

I love poppies so this suite was top on my list! The handpainted blooms and watercolor washes in the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper make beautiful backgrounds or focal points. Check out the video to see all the designs in this beautiful DSP!

The video below showcases the stamp sets and dies included in the suite as well as lots of card inspiration!

Here’s a fun fold card I created with the Peaceful Poppies Suite.

Stampin' Up! Peaceful Poppies fun fold birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This fun fold is so cool!  It has two flaps. Look how it opens.

You could add a sentiment on the front instead of the flower. I chose to stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set on the back  of the circle so you see it when you open the card. Then I added the coordinating sentiment from the stamp set on the inside. Check out these stamps and dies!

With two coordinating bundles the possibilities are endless! Each month I offer 3 EXCLUSIVE tutorials for FREE with any $40 order. This month I’m featuring the Peaceful Poppies suite. As an added Bonus, if you purchase the Painted Poppies Bundle (Cost $52….You save 10%!), I will send you the card kit to make today’s card which is featured in my tutorials.
