Happy Mother’s Day!

I “just want to say” Happy Mother’s Day!
Here’s the card I made for my mom.
Stampin' Up! Art Gallery Dies fun fold Mother's Day card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I love word dies and this one from the Floral Gallery Dies has so many possibilities.  Pair it with the Art Gallery Stamp Set and you’ll not only save 10% on the bundle, you’ll also have a variety of sentiments to use for any occasion. Here’s a look at the Art Gallery Bundle.

I used the Well Suited Designer Series Paper for this card. Many of the patterns are more masculine in nature but this navy floral is one of my  favorites. Here’s a look at all the different designs.

You only see a peek at this pretty floral until you open the card.
Stampin' Up! Peaceful Moments, All Dressed Up, and Art Gallery Dies fun fold Mother's Day card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I stamped sentiments from Peaceful Moments and Dressed To Impress in Night of Navy ink. I like the way this floral patterned paper coordinates with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder.  It’s hard to see in the photo but I added an embossed layer on the front of the card.

Pop Up Fun Fold Card Tutorial

Yesterday I shared my new favorite fun fold card I made for Easter. Today I have a photo tutorial for you along with another version I made for Mother’s Day.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Bouquet and Word Wishes Mother's Day fun fold card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This beautiful bouquet will last forever! I used the same fun fold “formula” along with the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper and Word Wishes Dies that I used on my Easter card.  The flowers are from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set and die cut with the Bouquet Bunch Dies. I love this sweet color combination: Petal Pink, Lovely Lipstick, and Whisper White (with a touch of green).

Here’s the Easter card I shared yesterday.

Stampin Up Best Dressed Hold On To Hope fun fold Easter card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I made 25 of these Easter cards so I worked “assembly line style”.  I cut, scored, stamped, and die cut everything, then put it all together. Here’s a look at all the pieces (*minus the Word Wishes die cut, “Happy Easter”).

Stampin' Up Hold on to Hope and Crosses of Hope fun fold card pieces for Easter card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s all the details:

Stamps & Dies

  • Hold On To Hope Stamp Set
  • Crosses of Hope Dies
  • A Wish for Everything Bundle (A Wish for Everything Stamp set and Word Wishes Dies)

Materials & Measurements

  • Card base (Purple Posy cardstock): 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 scored at 2 3/4
  • DSP Layer on card base: 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
  • Middle layer (Purple Posy cardstock): 2 x 4 1/2 scored at 1/2, 2 1/4, 4
  • DSP Layer in middle (Best Dressed floral pattern): 1 7/8 x 3 1/2
  • Curved front panel (Purple Posy): 1 1/4 x 6 1/2 scored at 1/2 on each end
  • Whisper White:  (2)  2 1/2 x 4 for stamped panels on the back of the card, scraps to stamp sentiment, stamp and die cut flowers, and die cut Happy Easter
  • Sparkle Glimmer Paper: 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 (to die cut cross) Color with Highland Heather reinker and Aqua Painter
  • Purple Posy: 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 (to die cut cross)
  • Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon: ~5″ Color with Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend
  • Highland Heather Classic Ink

Directions

  1. Fold and burnish card base and front strip along the score lines. Apply liquid glue to the tabs on the front strip and adhere to the card base on each side.
  2. Adhere the DSP panel to the back of the card sliding the bottom under the front panel so it hides the side tabs. Gently fold the card base along the score line making sure you don’t crease the front panel. You can see how it “pops out”.
  3. Adhere DSP to the middle panel. Fold along the center score line to crease the DSP. Fold in the edges & glue these to the back of the card laying down completely flat and in line with the center fold when gluing down the tabs.
  4. Glue the floral die cut on the front of the card along the left side. Adhere stamped panels on the back of the card.
  5. Adhere Happy Easter die cut sentiment along front piece.
  6. Paint the Sparkle Glimmer die cut cross with Highland Heather ink (put a few drops of reinker in the lid of the stamp pad) using an Aqua Painter. Let dry then adhere to the solid cross.  You could use a fine-tip glue pen but, I prefer to use liquid glue and apply with a sponge dauber on a silicone craft mat. Add a Rhinestone Jewel in the center of the cross.
  7. Color the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon using the Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend. This is so quick & easy to do!!!! Adhere ribbon to the cross using Mini Glue Dots. (I put two on the back to hold the ribbon and 1 on the front.)Use Stampin' Up! Stampin' Blends to color the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon to make any color ribbon you want - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
  8. Put 3 Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the center fold of the middle layer to adhere the cross.
  9. Stamp Hold on to Hope on 1/2 x 2 1/2 Whisper White strip and cut apart.  Adhere to front of card as shown.

Stampin Up Best Dressed Hold On To Hope fun fold Easter card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The base of this card is just 1/4 sheet of cardstock which makes it easy to fold flat to fit in the envelope to mail.

When the recipient opens the card it pops out and stands up for a wonderful display! (*The crease is the card base makes the front come forward like you’re reading/holding a book.)

Happiness Blooms for the Pals Blog Hop

Pals BLog Hop Badge April 2019

Welcome to the Pals’ April  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we love to put our ”Families First”! Our Design Team created beautiful projects to inspire you. 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.

Mother’s Day is right around the corner.  When my daughter was little she loved playing with her baby dolls! On Mother’s Day one year she let us know she was a mother too because she took care of her babies. That memory always brings a smile to my face!  I made two cards to share with you today.  One for my mom and one for my daughter. Both use the same layout and can be used for Mother’s Day or any occasion by simply changing the sentiment.

Stampin Up Happiness Blooms Mother's Day card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper on both of these cards.  This paper is so bright and cheery it just makes me smile! There are many more color combinations you could mix and match with these fun designs. Here’s a look at the different patterns.

Stampin Up Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper - for inspiration and ordering visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I cut a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of DSP to cover the front of a Whisper White card.

Stampin Up Mother's Day card idea using Just Because and Bloom By Bloom stamp sets - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I layered a 1 3/4 x 4 1/4 piece of DSP with a piece of 2 x 4 1/4 coordinating cardstock. Then I wrapped my ribbon around before adhering to the card.  The Mother’s Day sentiment is from the Just Because stamp set and the flower is from the Bloom By Bloom stamp set which is part of the Happiness Blooms Suite in the Occasions Catalog. I cut out the stamped piece and  coordinating cardstock using the Layering Ovals Framelits and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The bow is attached with a glue dot. This card is so quick & easy to make I just had to make another!

Stampin Up Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper and Eastern Beauty Stamp Set makes a quick & easy all occasion card - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Are you wondering where I got the pattern in the middle? I made it by stamping the little dots on Whisper White cardstock. You can make your own patterned paper in any color! For this card I used the Eastern Beauty stamp set to stamp my sentiment and cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I punched the little flower out from the DSP using the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack. I added a Happiness Blooms Enamel Dot in the center.  The flowers at the bottom are fussy cut and adhered with glue dots. You can find a list of all the products I used below.

Of course I had to make my envelopes coordinate. It’s quick & easy to do with a 1/4 inch strip of coordinating cardstock and a 2 x 6 piece of DSP.  Simply adhere to the envelope flap and trim away the excess.
