My Stampin’ Therapy

Wow!  What a week! I hope you all are staying home and staying healthy! We had to drive to Georgia (2 days each way) to pick up our daughter and move her and all her stuff back home. She would have been graduating in May; however, they have cancelled the graduation and she will have online classes for the remainder of the semester. As we all adjust to the changes in our life one thing we can all do to make a difference is make cards and send cards! Not only is stamping great “therapy” but there are others that need some happy mail now more than ever. A friend of mine works at a nursing home and shared that the residents are anxious and miss having visitors. I have been working on making cards for them. I know it won’t compare to having their loved ones visit but hopefully it will bring a smile to their face knowing that others are thinking of them and care as well! I have been going through my past paper pumpkin kits and using up my extra refill kits, leftover embellishments, etc. These kits make for some quick & easy cards when you need to make many (or a few). I just added some Stampin’ Up note cards & envelopes to create all these cards! . Here’s a look at what I’ve made so far.

For April, Stampin’ Up! created a fun, family appreciation themed card kit that would make it easy for others to share their hearts with those they love most: mom, dad, daughter, son, sister, and brother. April’s kit even includes Mother’s Day and Father’s Day sentiments, giving you the perfect way to show your appreciation for beloved parents on their special days with a beautiful, handmade card. Everyone’s clan is unique. With that in mind, Stampin’ Up! provided sentiments that would include anyone in your life who feels like family; for instance, “brothers” and “sisters” who have helped you along the journey of life. This “fam-tastic” kit will be perfect for reaching out and connecting with those who are most important.

Check out this short video to learn more.

Lighted Wreath Tutorial

Yesterday I shared a fun fold lighted wreath card using the All-Around Wreath Die and Tidings All Around Stamp set.  These are available as a bundle (Save 10%) and are so versatile for year round use! I have been making so many wreath projects and they all look so very different! Not only that, they are just plain fun and the dies are so easy to use to create! Here’s a look at the lighted fun fold card.

Stampin' Up! TIdings All Around Bundle and Christmas Bulb Builder Punch fun fold Christmas wreath card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s the details if you would like to make this fun fold card…


  • Very Vanilla card base:  4 1/2″ x 10 3/4″ scored at 3 5/8″ and 7 1/4″, 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ for sentiment
  • Mossy Meadow: 2 pieces 4″ x 4″ each to cut wreath dies
  • Old Olive: 2 pieces 4″ x 4″ each to cut wreath dies
  • Vellum: 4″ x 4″ to cut 3″ Circle Die
  • Scraps of Crushed Curry, Real Red, Pretty Peacock, Gorgeous Grape, Old Olive, and Smokey Slate to punch bulbs
  • DSP: Night Before Christmas 1 1/4″ x 4 1/2″


  • Fold and burnish score lines on card base.  Fold bottom up and top down for a trifold card.  The bottom piece is slightly smaller than the top so it closes easily.
  • Cut a solid and leaf wreath in Mossy Meadow and Old Olive. Layer the Old Olive leaf wreath on top of the solid base wreath with a few Glue Dots. Layer the Mossy Meadow leaf on top of Old Olive off setting it a little so the leaves don’t line up and the wreath looks fuller.
  • Cut a 3″ Circle using the Layering Circle Dies. Glue to the back of the wreath then add the Mossy Meadow solid wreath to give it a finished look and add depth.
  • Using the 2 1/4″ Circle Punch, center the punch along the top piece and push it in as far as it will go and punch.Tutorial to make fun fold lighted wreath - Jeanie Stark Stampin' Up!
  • Center wreath over the circle opening and adhere to the front panel with liquid glue.
  • Make a bow with Real Red Cotton Ribbon and attach to the wreath with Glue Dots.
  • Stamp tops to bulbs with Smokey slate ink on ~1/2 ” strip of Smokey Slate cardstock.  Punch with Bulb Builder Punch.
  • Punch assorted colors of cardstock with Bulb Builder Punch. Adhere tops to bulbs with Liquid Glue and adhere to wreath with Glue Dots. Add highlights with a white gel pen.
  • savingpng-3
  • Open the top of the card and fold the bottom piece up.  Center and stamp sentiment in Black ink. * You will only see this sentiment through the front of the wreath when the card is closed.  When the card is open and displayed the sentiment is actually on the bottom of the card.
  • Fold the sentiment piece down and add the strip of DSP along the edge.  Stamp greeting on Very Vanilla cardstock and layer with Real Red cardstock.  Adhere to DSP with Stampin’ Dimensionals. *The popped up greeting will hold the card in place when it is displayed.  Add a battery operated tea light behind the wreath so it glows. You have plenty of space inside for a handwritten note or other sentiment.
