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?

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

Life is Better with a Friend Like You

Hello Stamping Friends! How are you doing? I know this is a stressful time for everyone and I am so thankful for my stamping business! Some days I feel like my “creative therapy”, friends & family, are the only things keeping me sane! We have not been able to buy toilet paper in the last 7 weeks even though it has been on our pick up order every week! I finally found some to order online; however, it never arrived! Enough about that! Let’s get on with today’s project.

I have several friends with upcoming birthdays and I wanted to make them a special card. I love fun fold cards and couldn’t wait to try this new fun fold I learned from Ronda Wade. It’s called a Stand Up Card. You can see how it got it’s name.

Stampin' Up! Peaceful Moments Fun Fold Birthday card idea with Ornate Garden DSP - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s the details to make a Stand Up Card:

Measurements

  • Card Base (Mint Macaron): 4 1/4 x 11, scrap to cut scalloped circle from Layering Circle Dies
  • DSP Panels (from Ornate Garden): Cut 2 @ 7/8 x 4 3/8, cut 1 @ 2 1/8 x 4 3/8
  • Whisper White: 7/8 x 4 1/8 strip for the bottom, 4 x 4 1/4 for the back, scrap to stamp and cut with Stitched Shapes Die

Directions

  1. Score the card base at 4 1/2 (*This will be the only full score you make.)
  2. Flip the cardstock and place the longer side of the card base in the trimmer and line up the left side at the 2 inch mark. Score from the top of the card down to the 1″ mark.  Then score from 3 1/4″ mark to the bottom of the card.
  3. Line up the card along the 1″ mark in the trimmer. And repeat the same scores…Score from the top of the card down to the 1″ mark. Then score from the 3 1/4″ mark to the bottom of the card. *You will have 2- 1″ score lines at the top and 2- 1″ score lines at the bottom of the card.
  4. Put the 4 1/4 side in the trimmer and line up at 1″ on the left. Cut from the 1″ score line at the bottom to the full score line above.
  5. Line up the card at 1″ on the right side of the blade. Cut from the 1″ score line at the bottom to the full score line above.
  6. Next you need to score between the cut lines at 1″ from the score line at top of the card.  The easy way to do this is to line up the card base at 5 1/2″ on the trimmer. *The full score line will be at the 1″ mark. Then score between the cut lines.
  7. Fold and burnish along the full score line.  Your card should look like this.Stampin' Up! Stand Up Fun Fold card tutorial - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
  8. Then lift between the cut lines and fold the top score line back. The bottom scores will fold back and forward. Burnish all score lines with a bone folder.
  9. Adhere Designer Series Paper strips to the front of the card as shown.Stampin' Up! Ornate Garden Fun Fold card tutorial - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
  10. Stamp sentiment from Peaceful Moments on Whisper White strip with Early Espresso Ink and adhere to the bottom of the card. Stamp daisy from Daisy Lane in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off once. Stamp Happy Birthday in Early Espresso ink above the daisy and cut out with the Stitched Shapes Circle Die.
  11. Color the center of the daisy with Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend and adhere to Layered Circle. Adhere to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  12. Stamp sentiment and daisy on Whisper White panel and adhere on the back.  Stampin' Up! Peaceful Moments Fun Fold Birthday card idea with Ornate Garden DSP - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
  13. Wrap Mint Macaron ribbon around the center panel and tie a bow.
  14. Decorate the envelope flap with 1/4 strip of Mint Macaron and 2 x 6 piece of DSP and trim to cut off excess. Stampin' Up! Peaceful Moments Fun Fold Birthday card idea with Ornate Garden DSP - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I am loving the new Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper! I also love how the daisy prints coordinate so well with the Daisy Lane Stamp set and matching punches!

Today is my friend Jill’s birthday. (I’d love for you to leave a comment below and wish Jill a Happy Birthday!) I made another version of this fun fold card for her. She really loves bees and even has a bee tattoo. I think she will like this card!

I had fun stamping the back of the card too! There’s still plenty of room to add a personal note.

O is for Special Occasion

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ll be sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! There are many special occasions throughout the year which call for particular cards.  What’s more special than the miracle of a newborn?! My niece is having a baby boy so I made this card for her.

Stampin' Up! Well Written baby card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Owls are trendy in home decor these days and she is decorating her nursery with an owl theme.  I really wanted to use the owl from the Hoot Hoot Hooray stamp set (found in the Beginner Brochure) but I forgot to add it on my last order! (How many of you have done that before?) Check out this cute stamp set!

This set pairs an image and a sentiment for each occasion. There’s even a Hoot Hoot Hooray Bundle (similar to the Celebrate with Cake Bundle I shared the other day.) The bundle includes everything you need to create 20 cards for birthdays, new baby, celebration, friendship, support, and more.

This stamp set will definitely be on my next order! For now, I had to use a retired owl I had in my collection! You can easily substitute any image and use this card design for many different occasions. It’s a quick & easy card to duplicate! Here’s the measurements:

  • 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Card base (Seaside Spray) scored at 4 1/4
  • 3 x 4 DSP

I added a 4 inch strip of the beautiful Scalloped Linen Ribbon with Tear and Tape. Then I stamped the image on whisper white and cut it with the Circle Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a Scalloped Circle from the Layering Circles Dies as a border. I thought it needed a little more color so I cut another circle from the Layering Circles Dies in So Saffron to go behind to make it look like the moon. What do you think?

Stampin' Up! Well Written baby card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I have been getting a lot of use out of my Well Written Dies lately!  I love word dies and this set is the Mother Load! (You can click on the product image below to enlarge and view in my online store to see all the different words.) It coordinates with the Well Said Stamp Set for many different sentiment possibilities. I layered the word die on a scrap piece of Whisper White and fussy cut around it to make it pop on the DSP.

I love to give books with or as gifts, especially for little ones! I found the perfect book to go with this owl themed occasion.  Hoot Hoot Hooray!
