Best Dressed Sweet Friend Swap Card

Stampin' Up! Best Dress Honey Bee thinking of you card idea for a friend - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I made this card for a swap I’m participating in. I love this sentiment from the Honey Bee Stamp Set.  I can’t seem to stop playing with this set!  It is so versatile! Check it out!

This my featured stamp of the month. (*See details below.) I have been making a variety of cards and gifts with it! Click HERE to see one of my new favorite fun fold cards.

This is one of my “go to” layouts for a quick & easy card! I chose the beautiful floral DSP from the Best Dressed 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper pack then chose my coordinating colors of Lovely Lipstick and Petal Pink.  Here’s the measurements:

  • Card Base: Petal Pink 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
  • Layer 1: Lovely Lipstick 3 3/8 x 3 5/8
  • DSP Layer: 3 1/4 x 3 1/2

I stamped the sentiment in Lovely Lipstick on Whisper White and cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Dies.  It is layered on Lovely Lipstick cut with a Scalloped Oval Die and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The butterfly is from the Butterfly Gala stamp set and stamped with Lovely Lipstick on Whisper White and colored with Clear Wink of Stella.  It is punched out using the Butterfly Duet Punch. I also used the leaf punch and punched 2 from Old Olive Perennial Essence Vellum cardstock. Such a pretty combination of colors! Punches make it quick & easy!

I added some layers on the inside with the coordinating cardstock, DSP, and the matching mini butterfly.  I left it blank for a personal message but this sentiment works for many occasions (happy birthday, get well, congratulations, etc.)

A Sentimental Fun Fold Card for the Pals Blog Hop

2019-September Blog Hop Badge

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “It’s the Sentiment That Counts”  – showcasing new or favorite sentiments as the focal point of their project.  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.

Stampin’ Up! has so many great sentiments to choose from it was really hard to pick a favorite. Then inspiration hit me as I was decorating my home for fall.

Thanksgiving pillow

I love the sentiments on this pillow (enough to buy two to sit on my dining room chairs). It really sums up how I feel! There’s inspiration everywhere! I love a challenge and decided to recreate this “sentimental” pillow for my card.

Stampin' Up! Country Home and To A Wild Rose Fun Fold Thanksgiving card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used two stamp sets for my sentiments, To A Wild Rose and Country Home. This pop up fun fold design really showcases the sentiment layer and makes it the focal point. I used the Stamparatus and the new Delicata Golden Glitz Metallic Ink to stamp my sentiments. I stamped grateful twice, first in Golden Glitz then with Soft Suede so it would be darker like the pillow but I also wanted it to shine like the others.

Stampin' Up! Country Home and To A Wild Rose Fun Fold Thanksgiving card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

It’s hard to see the shine in my photo but trust me, it’s there. I punched and cut the leaves from Gold Foil and glued them on before embossing the sentiment layer with the Subtle Embossing Folder to give it the look of fabric like the pillow. (Sometimes I do go a bit overboard when I’m trying to recreate the look; however, I really like how this turned out and probably wouldn’t have thought to do that if it wasn’t for my inspiration piece.)

You can stamp a message and/or write a note on the back of the card. The sentiment I used is from Country Home. This card can sit on a shelf or desk and folds flat to fit in an envelope.

 

Check back tomorrow for the tutorial how to make this fun fold card. You can use this design with other sentiments for many different occasions! Be sure to subscribe to my blog so you don’t miss out on project ideas and more!
