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.

My Happiest Season for the Pals Blog Hop

Blog Hop Badge August 2020Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team is showcasing “My Happiest Season.” 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.

I love summer and the beach. It’s definitely my happy place! My card today is a slimline card created with Seaside Notions and the new Seabed 3D Embossing folder.

Stampin' Up! Seaside Notions and Well Written Dies slimline card and gift idea for any occasion - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The colors of this card remind me of a seaside resort. Our summer has certainly been different this year. Instead of our usual family vacation I have to imagine I am walking along the shoreline and combing the beach for shells and sea glass. Here’s my “collection” of shells to go with my card.

I love to make cards and gifts to coordinate. The elegant sheer pool party ribbon was perfect to wrap up the Clear tiny treat box. I hope the recipient will enjoy the chocolate covered version of shells.

I heat embossed the shells and seahorse on Shimmery White using Versamark and Gold Embossing Powder. I colored them using an Aqua painter and pool party ink then fussy cut them and adhered to my projects with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots. I even colored a few for the inside of the card. I love that there is a lot of room for a handwritten message or large stamped sentiment.

I am enjoying making these larger cards which fit perfectly in a #10 size business or “resume” envelope. You could make this card for any occasion using the Well Written Dies. These are so easy to adhere using the new adhesive sheets!

Let’s Celebrate…Blog Candy Winner and More!

Happy 4th of July! We watched Hamilton last night (I highly recommend it!!!) and it really put me in the Patriotic spirit! I love celebrating this holiday for so many reasons! This year is a little different celebration but I’m determined to make it a fun family celebration none the less! Usually we would be celebrating with 20 or more of my family in Massachusetts with a traditional New England clamboil! Yum!! (I am really missing my fresh seafood this summer!!!!) Even though it will be just the three of us (quarantined at home) this year, there’s two traditions that we keep no matter where we celebrate…a flag cake and sparklers! While my daughter baked and decorated the cake this year, I made table favors.

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers and Stitched Stars table favors for 4th of July - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Sparklers are so much fun for any age! These tags are quick & easy to make with the Stitched Stars Dies and some red, white, and blue!

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers and Stitched Stars table favors for 4th of July - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here”s the details:

Measurements

  • Real Red: 2 x 4, 3/4 x 2 1/4 strip for sentiment
  • Whisper White: 1 3/4 x 3 3/4
  • Pacific Point: 2 1/4 x 4 1/4 to cut stars, 7/8 x 2 1/4

Directions

  1. Adhere Whisper White to Real Red. Punch 1/4 hole at the top and bottom.
  2. Cut Stitched Star Die and layer on white strip. Slide sparkler through the holes and through the top and bottom of the stars to hold the die in place. (No adhesive needed!)
  3. Stamp sentiment from Celebrate Sunflowers with Versamark on Real Red strip and heat emboss with white embossing powder. Adhere Pacific Point layer then adhere on stars with Stampin’ Dimensionals. (These keep the die in place.)
  4. Thread a 6″ piece of Real Red Stitched Grosgrain ribbon (from Playful Pets Combo Pack) through the hole at the bottom and tie a simple knot. Adhere leftover stars from die with mini glue dots on top of ribbon and sentiment.

Did you notice the candy cup in the photo above? The Mini Coffee Cup is a sneak peek from the Holiday Mini Catalog which will debut next month! It’s part of the Heartwarming Hugs Suite and has dies to cut wraps to go around the cups, a stamp set with lots of sentiments and images to decorate the cups, embossing folders, DSP, ribbons, embellishments, and even a Mini Coffee Cup Carrier.  I’ll be sharing more about all that later! For now, lets take a look at this Patriotic cup which holds some red, white, and blue M&M’s.

Stampin' Up! Heartwarming Hugs Mini coffee cup Patriotic candy favor - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This is another simple project that’s quick & easy! I cut 6 red strips measuring 3/4 x 3 1/2 and adhered them around the cup. I used the Warm Wraps Dies (available in August) to cut the wrap around the bottom. I punched the stars and added those around the bottom with mini glue dots then added a rhinestone to each. I filled a cellophane bag with M&M’s and tied it with the stitched red grosgrain ribbon. I cut a red circle using the largest Layering Circles Dies for the base. These would make great gifts for friends, neighbors, or veterans!

Here’s a look at some other 4th of July and Patriotic projects I’ve shared starting with my very first blog post from 4 years ago today !(*You can click on the image to see the original post.)

I hope you have a wonderful day! How will you be celebrating? I can’t wait to cut into this cake my daughter made!
savingpng
It’s called a “poke cake” and it’s a white cake with strawberry jello which makes red and white stripes on the inside.  The topping is whip cream! If you look closely and count there’s exactly 50 blueberries (stars) and 13 stripes on the cake. We take our flag cake seriously around here!  LOL
