Pinwheel Tower Card and more for Ariane’s Birthday

Today is my daughter’s birthday! We were able to get together and enjoy an early celebration in Maine last month; however, I still wanted to send her a little something for her actual birthday. Her favorite color is purple so I pulled out the gorgeous Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper and Fresh Freesia cardstock and had some fun creating a special fun fold card and Hershey nugget birthday cake.

I saw several different pinwheel tower cards on Pinterest. I really liked the tip from Linda Heller to use DSP for the center tower (so it is not so heavy and bulky in the middle).  I was definitely inspired by her card but changed mine up to make a regular (A2 size) card.  I love how this card stands up and showcases the DSP on all four sides.

This card looks complicated but, trust me, it is really easy to make! I chose to use 4 different patterns of DSP, 2 floral and 2 gingham, to keep things simple. You could easily choose more patterns to mix and match.  I was going for a more traditional pinwheel look.  Here’s the details:

Card Measurements:

Column/Tower (Pansy Petals DSP): 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 scored @ 1″, 2″, 3″, and 4″
Cardstock panels (Fresh Freesia) : 4 pieces 2 3/4 x 4 1/4
Designer Series Paper (Pansy Petals): 4 pieces 2 1/2 x 4, 4 pieces 1 1/2 x 4
(*Cut one size each of 4 different patterns – 2 floral, 2 gingham), cut pansy and leaves from DSP
Basic White: scrap pieces for sentiments
Fresh Freesia and Evening Evergreen: scraps to punch heart & die cut flower

Directions:

  1. Fold and burnish DSP. Add adhesive to 1/4″ side and adhere to form tower.
  2. Adhere cardstock panels on each side of tower.
  3. Adhere DSP layers to cardstock.
  4. Add sentiments and embellishments to each side.

You can check out Linda Heller’s (Stampin School) video HERE.

I love the coordinated colors and different patterns in the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper! You can use the Dies included with the bundle to cut the pansy flowers and leaves.

I chose 3 patterns to make the tiered “birthday cake” to send with her card.
Stampin' Up! Pansy Petals Hershey Nugget birthday cake idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I cut 18 1″ x 3″ DSP strips to wrap the nuggets.  You need 5 for the top layer, 6 for the middle, and 7 for the bottom. To make each layer, adhere the nuggets to a 1 x 8 strip of cardstock using a strong adhesive (Tear & Tape or Stampin’ Seal +). For the top 2 layers trim off the access cardstock from the strip making sure to save enough to adhere the end piece to the first to form a circle. I used a bunch of Mini Glue Dots to adhere the nuggets to the die cut circles between each layer. *For the base I cut a circle from the heavy 12 x 12 white cardstock (in the DSP packs) and glued the Fresh Freesia cardstock circle to the top and bottom to cover the white. This makes it nice and sturdy to lift. I used more Mini Glue Dots to adhere the bow on top and ribbons down the side as well as the Loose Flower Flourishes. This “cake” was so much fun to make but almost looks too good to eat!

I thought it would be a nice surprise to send a little cash as I know she will be going out to eat with her friends from school.
Stampin' Up! Label Me Fancy Sweet Ice Cream Tag idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I adhered the plastic silverware together with a few Stampin’ Dimensionals, adhered the money with Mini Glue Dots, and wrapped Fresh Freesia organza ribbon around it all and tied a bow.  The sentiment from the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set was perfect for the tag. I was going to put this in the Ombre Gift Bag but really liked the look of it on top so I added a few more Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it to the bag. Even though the Pinwheel Tower card fits in a regular envelope, I placed it inside the bag. I hope these little homemade gifts bring a smile on her special day!

Sweet Strawberry Slider Treat Box Tutorial

Yesterday I shared two versions of a sweet slider treat box for some foil covered chocolate hearts turned in to strawberries.
Stampin' Up! Sweet Strawberry and Berry Delightful handmade treat boxes - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I had several people ask where I found the foil wrapped “strawberries”.  Thanks to the Strawberry Builder Punch the transformation was quick and easy! I stamped the strawberry stem from the Sweet Strawberry Stamp set on Granny Apple Green cardstock with Garden Green Ink. I punched it out and added it to the top of the chocolate heart with Mini Glue Dots. Voila!
Here’s a tip when using the Strawberry Builder Punch (or any builder punch): Cut cardstock in strips to stamp and punch. That way you don’t waste cardstock punching the other pieces each time.
Stampin' Up Strawberry Builder Punch Tip - visit juststampin.com for stamping tips, project inspiration, and more! - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
Today I have all the details to make these slider treat boxes. The box is made the same for both projects.
Stampin' Up! Sweet Strawberry and Berry Delightful handmade treat boxes - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
To make the box: Cut cardstock (Garden Green) 3 x 5 1/2 and score at 3/4″ on all four sides. Cut along the horizontal side up to the score line to form the tabs. Cut notches as shown and add adhesive to the tabs to adhere box together.

*Optional – I added a DSP layer (1 1/4 x 4) inside the bottom of the box.

To make the fold over belly band:

  • Cut cardstock (Garden Green) 7 1/4 x 4 1/8. Score @ 3/4, 2 3/8, 3 1/8, 4 3/4, 5 1/2.
  • With the Layering Circles Dies, cut a 1 1/8 circle from the cardstock (*see photo below).
  • Stamp the strawberry vine in Garden Green Ink.
  • Add a 5/8 x 4 strip of DSP between the score lines below the stamped image.
  • Layer the Circle Dies and cut both at once. Adhere to the circle on top.
  • On the backside of the circle add a 1 1/2 x 2 piece of Window Sheet with glue dots.
  • Adhere a 1 1/2 x 4 piece of DSP along the bottom of the box. Stamp sentiment in Real Red on 3/4 x 2 1/2 piece of Whisper White. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Apply a strong adhesive (Stampin’ Seal or Tear & Tape) to the top of the box. Fold this piece over and adhere below the first score line.
  • Adhere another 1 1/2 x 4 piece of DSP on the inside. Stamp sentiment in Real Red Ink on a scrap of Whisper White and fussy cut out. Adhere to DSP layer.
  • Stamp two strawberry outlines in Poppy Parade ink on Whisper White. Stamp filler image in Poppy Parade stamping off first. Punch with Strawberry Builder Punch. Add stamped stem with glue dot and adhere one beside the sentiment on the inside.
  • Stamp flowers with Flirty Flamingo and punch.  Adhere to stamped vine with Mini Glue Dots. Add Heart Resin Dots to the centers.

  • Slide in the box with candy and wrap Real Red ribbon around the box and tie a bow. Adhere stamped and punched strawberry to ribbon with a Stampin’ Dimensional. *The ribbon will slide on and off the box to open.

    Here’s a look at the open and closed view side by side.

It’s easy to just slide the candy box out from either side of the treat holder.

The only difference between this “fold over” version and the stand up version (below) is the size of the cardstock for the belly band. It has one less score line and it a little taller.
Stampin' Up! Sweet Strawberry and Berry Delightful handmade treat boxes - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
The slider box, flowers, and circle window are made the same.
Here’s the measurements for the belly band and DSP:

Garden Green Cardstock: 7 1/2 x 4 1/8 scored at 3/4, 2 3/8, 4 3/4
Berry Delightful DSP: 5/8 x 4, 1 7/8 x 4

Flowers For Every Season Christmas Card

Today I’m showcasing my first Christmas card of the season using one of my favorite Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalog, Flowers For Every Season.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Gleaming and Flowers For Every Season Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I really like this color combination of Just Jade, Poppy Parade, and Flirty Flamingo. What do you think, Christmas colors or not?

Stampin' Up! Color Combo - for inspiration and more visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

There’s a couple of sneak peeks on my card today. The sentiment is from a returning favorite from last year’s Holiday Catalog, Christmas Gleaming. It was definitely one of my favorite stamps and I’m so glad it’s back! It will be available (starting Aug. 4th) along with the coordinating Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack.

I love ribbon and add it to most projects. The ribbon on my card is from All The Trimmings Ribbon Combo Pack and is gold-trimmed for some added sparkle.

I love coordinating envelopes with my cards! I got this envelope idea from my super creative and talented friend, Rosanne Mulhern (heartfeltstamping.com). She decorated her envelope like this using coordinating DSP strips and I couldn’t wait to try it! This seemed like the perfect card to mirror the layers on my envelope.

Here’s what I used on today’s card:

Stamp Sets: Gleaming Christmas  Papers: Flowers For Every Season DSP, Brights 6 x 6 DSP, Thick Whisper White, Just Jade Whisper White  Inks: Poppy Parade  Accessories:  Tailored Tag Punch, Layering Circles Dies, 1/8″Poppy Parade Gold Trimmed Ribbon, Stampin’ Seal, Stampin’ Dimensionals
