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.)

D is for Deck the Halls with Designer Series Paper

Welcome to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! Throughout this series I will be sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC!  Today I am sharing a quick & easy card design that showcases both sides of the Designer Series Paper (aka DSP). The Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper is one of my favorites in the holiday catalog. One of the many things I love about Stampin’ Up! is their color coordination! It makes it quick & easy to choose the right colors for any project! Every pack of DSP has the coordinating colors on the package as well as in the catalog. (No thinking necessary! LOL) Here’s a look at the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper and the coordinating cardstock (Mossy Meadow, Very Vanilla, Night of Navy, Pretty Peacock, and Copper Foil). Stampin' Up! Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper - For inspiration and ordering information visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s my first two Christmas cards for this year.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set and Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series quick & easy Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

  • Layer the Brightly Gleaming DSP on top of the card base so it is flush with the right side. Add adhesive as shown on the edge of the card base and DSP. (I used Tear & Tape; however, you can use Snail adhesive if you prefer.) Close card to adhere.
  •  Wrap ribbon around the cardstock and tie a simple knot.
  • Stamp the sentiment (with VersaMark) from Christmtas Gleaming and heat emboss with Copper Embossing Powder.  Cut with Layering Circles Dies or Circle Punch.
  • Punch out a Pretty Label in Copper Foil and adhere to the card. Attach the circle sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Stamp the holly in Memento Black Ink onto Very Vanilla Cardstock and color in with Stampin’ Blends (Old Olive and Real Red). Fussy cut it out and attach to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  • Stamp inside sentiment on Very Vanilla Cardstock with Old Olive Ink and adhere to card. Add leftover strip of DSP on the side.
  • Stamp holly on the front of the envelope and color as above. (*Insert a scrap piece of paper inside the envelope when coloring in case the Blends bleed through.)

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

  • Old Olive cardstock – 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2.  Line up the score line at 1 3/4 and cut off the bottom of the card front.  From the piece you just cut, cut apiece measuring 1 3/4.  You will have a leftover piece that is 2 x 4 1/4.  Cut that piece so it measures 2 x 3 1/2.  This piece will be the “bridge” to connect the top and bottom of the card.
  • Dinoroar DSP – Cut 2 pieces 4 x 1 1/2  *If you want a coordinating envelope you will also need a piece that measures 2 x 6.
  • Whisper White Cardstock – 4 x 5 1/4 (inside piece), 1 3/4 x 3 1/4 to stamp animal.

Adhere the DSP to the old olive card base and bottom piece.  Stamp the images in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White and color with Stampin’ Blends.  I used Old Olive, Mango Melody, and Soft Suede. Adhere the stamped image to the Old Olive layer and attach to the card using Tear & Tape at the top and bottom of the layered piece.

This fun card really came together fast! I hope you will give it a try.
