L is for Lights for the Pals Blog Hop

Oct-Blog-Hop 2019

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “My Favorite Season”  – showcasing our favorite stamps and supplies for our holiday 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.

I’ve been sharing holiday projects for each letter of the alphabet in my ABC Holiday 2019 Series. (Make sure you follow my blog so you don’t miss out on holiday ideas from A to Z!) Today I have two fun projects to “light” up the holidays!  No matter what’s your favorite holiday, the All- Around Wreath Dies work for every season!

My first project is a fun fold card that lights up with a battery operated votive candle.

I used the Tidings All Around Stamp Set and All-Around Wreath Die to create this card. (You can purchase these as a bundle and save 10%)! This card would look great on a mantel, bookcase, or end table. I love how it lights up!

Here’s a few more pictures so you can see how it looks closed and how it opens. It’s a trifold card that sits up like a tent.

I sandwiched a piece of vellum between the wreaths so the light shines through without actually seeing the votive candle. I decorated the wreath with bulbs using the Bulb Builder Punch.  The Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper was the perfect choice to compliment the punched lights. This was so much fun to make!

The best part of any holiday season is spending time with family & friends! I love to make little table favors for each holiday and the All- Around Wreath Dies make a fun and easy project to light up your holiday table.

I made these for our Thanksgiving table but you could easily do the same for Christmas, New Years, Valentine’s Day, etc. These dies are versatile for year round use! I love them! I I watercolored Shimmery White cardstock with the Aqua Painter before cutting the die. It was quick & easy!

One of the things we love to do as a family during the holiday season is drive around and look at all the beautiful lights. Many neighborhoods in our area have huge displays of lights and music and it’s always fun to see the different displays. Do you go all out with lights? Which do you prefer… colored lights or white lights?

If you would like to make these “lighted” projects check back tomorrow for the complete tutorials because….More inspiration awaits!

Mark your calendars for Wednesday, November 13th when we showcase projects with layers of DSP and embellishments for any occasion. Don’t miss the fun!

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!

Simply Scored Fun Fold for the Pals Blog Hop

2019 April Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals’ May  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects with “More Than One Score.” 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.

I love fun fold cards! I have been wanting to make this one for some time now but, the name, “Impossible Fold”, sounded intimidating.  Let me just say, this card is anything but impossible!  In fact, it is a really simple fun fold to make!

Stampin Up Free As a Bird Fun Fold All Occasion card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the Free As a Bird Stamp Set and and Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper which will be available in the new annual catalog when it debuts June 4th. Demonstrators were able to see and play with new products at Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event.  This suite was used for one of the make ‘n take projects.  I like to challenge myself and use the make ‘n take products to make something a little different.

This fun fold starts with a piece of 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 cardstock.  A few simple scores (4 to be exact) turns what would be a flat card in to a cool pop up!

Stampin Up Free As a Bird Impossible Fun Fold All Occasion card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love the new scalloped lace trim too! (I’ll share how I made the fun banner tomorrow.) I had fun coloring the birds with the Stampin’ Blends. You could just as easily watercolor with ink or use Stampin’ Up!’s watercolor pencils. Just think of all the color possibilities for these cute little birds!

This fun fold card would look great propped up on a desk or bookcase.  Don’t forget to check back tomorrow for the photo tutorial so you can make one for someone special!
