Merry December! It is STILL the most wonderful time of year…even in a pandemic!! I know so many are hurting, lonely, etc. and this time of year is not always pleasant for those who have lost loved ones or can’t be with their family or friends. My heart goes out to you as I get it and I understand! It is my hope and desire to bring as much merry to as many as possible this year! I try to focus on the positive and look for silver linings wherever I can. Even if you can’t be together with family and friends this year, remember the reason for the season and reach out to those you love! Sometimes a phone call or a handmade card just letting someone know you are thinking of them will help.

Every year I make calendar cards which I share, sell, and definitely use! (These days I seem to have a harder time remembering what day it is!)  I am certainly looking forward to saying good-bye to 2020 and hopeful that 2021 will be better! The Daisy Punch is still one of my favorites! Here’s my newest calendar card design for 2021.Stampin' Up! Celebration Label Dies and Daisy Punch calendar card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
Here’s the side view so you can see the extra support. These cards stay standing all year!

Another Retiring Favorite… Perennial Birthday

I send a LOT of birthday cards and love having different sentiments to choose from.  One of my birthday favorites is Perennial Birthday which is retiring June 2nd. Here is a fun fold card that was part of my Just Stampin’ Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet To Go last month.

Even though I used sentiments from the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set on the front and inside of this card, my kits to go are designed so you can use whatever stamp sets you already have to add a sentiment. Each month my kits to go include 3 cards and a 3D Project. I love fun fold cards so I always include one fun fold card each month. You also get the tutorials for each project so you can make more if you want.  My tutorials are a great resource of ideas. Click HERE for all the details to get in on my May kit  to go!

Here’s a look at all the great birthday sentiments in Perennial Birthday.

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.

The Honey Bee Stamp Set and Detailed Dies I used to create this card for Jill is retiring! Yesterday I shared my Retiring Special Offer….you can get my Honey Bee exclusive tutorials, a card kit, and a sample of 6 X 6 Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper with the purchase of this bundle from my online store.
