M is for Masculine

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ll be sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! It seems many people struggle with masculine cards. The key is to keep it clean.

Stampin Up! Masculine Birthday card idea using Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper and Sailing Home Stamp Set - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper is perfect for masculine cards! I like so many of the prints in this pack I had a hard time deciding which ones to use! I used 3 different prints and love how they coordinate so well.

Stampin Up Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This card is any easy formula to duplicate! You can change the DSP and use it for so many different cards! Here’s the measurements:

  • Card Base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Whisper White scored at 4 1/4
  • DSP Layer: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
  • Center Panel: 4 x 2 3/4 Balmy Blue
  • Panel Pieces: 1 5/8 x 2 1/2 Whisper White, 1 x 2 DSP, 1 3/8 x 2 DSP

I stamped the sailboat from the Sailing Home Stamp Set and cut it out with the coordinating Smooth Sailing Dies. These dies work with the High Tide Stamp Set too which gives you a great bang for your buck! You can purchase the dies and stamp set as a bundle and save 10%!

The lighthouse would work in place of the sailboat or you could stamp and cut the anchor.  So many possibilities!!! I love being on the ocean so I had to have the whole Come Sail Away Suite! I added the anchor from the Sail Away Trinkets along with the coordinating Baker’s Twine.

The sentiment I used is from the Well Said Stamp Set.  This set is so versatile! It has sentiments for every occasion and has sentiments for the inside too! It also has coordinating word dies you can use for even more versatility and creative fun! I absolutely love these! (Be sure to click on the link at the bottom of this post to view in my online store.  You’ll want to add these to your cart if you don’t already own them!)

I just got back from spending 3 weeks in Massachusetts.  I grew up spending the summers on Cape Cod so I look forward to going “home” in July.  We had a wonderful time with family and friends and enjoyed sailing, seafood, salt air, lots of laughs and plenty of family games.  I colored my boat to look like this famous family’s sailboat we passed in the harbor.  Can you guess the family it belongs to? (Unfortunately it’s not mine!)

I used Night of Navy and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends to color the sailboat. I also stamped my envelope with the smaller sailboat in the set.

Stampin' Up! Free As A Bird friend card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I couldn’t decide between birds or butterflies for our “Anything with Wings” theme.  This simple card design would work with either. I knew I wanted to use this sentiment from Free As A Bird so this one stamp set did it all!

  • Card Base: Seaside Spray Cardstock 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
  • DSP Layer:  2″ x 4 1/4″.  Adhere to the center of the card base.
  • Cardstock Layer: Daffodil Delight 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″.
  • Stamped Layer: Whisper White Cardstock 2-1/2″ x 4″. Stamp the image and using Memento Black Ink.  Color with Stampin’ Blends: Daffolidl Delight Combo, Old Olive Combo, and Crumb Cake Combo. Stamp sentiment in Seaside Spray ink. Adhere to Daffoldil Delight Cardstock.
  • Wrap a piece of Seaside Spray Scalloped Ribbon around the stamped layer and adhere on back.  Tie a simple knot in front. Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Embellish the envelope with a 1/4″ strip of Seaside Spray cardstock and a 2 x 6 piece of DSP.  Trim around the flap with Paper Snips.

E is for Encouragement

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ll be sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! Today’s card is for times when we want to encourage a friend or family member.  Good Luck is the perfect sentiment to send someone for an upcoming surgery, exam, interview, new job, etc.  My friend, Margie, has been wanting a stamp set like this. I hope she likes this card!

Stampin' Up! Believe You Can Good Luck card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My Stampin’ Up! order came last week and I received the Believe You Can stamp set as a Host Reward. (Ask me how you can earn this stamp set for your collection!)

Stampin' Up! Believe You Can Stamp Set - Ask me how you can earn this stamp set! - Jeanie Stark juststampin.com StampinUp

I love how you can change the sentiment in the banner for different occasions. (I am also in love with the quote from Teddy Roosevelt.) This is a versatile stamp set and one I knew I had to have!

I colored the stamped image with my Stampin’ Blends and cut it out with the new Stitched Nested Labels Dies. These double stitched dies cut the image and the border piece.  Double whammy! I can use the leftover piece on another card!

Stampin Up Stitched Nested Labels Dies - to order visit www.juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used one die to cut the stamped image and a larger die to cut the Designer Series Paper.  I like the way it looks like another layer with the border from the card base  You can see how it’s stitched around the edges.

Stampin' Up! Believe You Can Good Luck card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I thought the leaves on the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper would be a good background for the stamped image.  The designs in this paper pack are all soft shades of green. You can use this paper with many different color combinations.

B is for Birthday

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Monday I shared a couple of Anniversary card ideas. (If you missed that post, you can view it HERE.) I’m looking forward to sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! Today is all about Birthday cards! Everyone has a birthday so we always need birthday cards! Today’s card features a fun card idea inspired from a sketch design.

Stampin' Up! Picture Perfect Birthday and Touches of Texture birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

When I first started stamping I would copy sketch designs and use whatever paper and stamps I had to make a card.  This is one of those sketches I have been wanting to do. I blended old with new for this card.  Both stamps sets I used, Picture Perfect Birthday and Touches of Texture, are retiring June 3rd. (Inventory is low.) So sad to see these go!  I have used this sentiment many times!  It works great for the front of a card or on the inside.  Check out the other great sentiments in this set.

Stampin Up Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The touches of Texture Stamp set is another beauty and so versatile.  These images can be used for many different occasion cards. I colored the flowers and dragonfly using my Stampin’ Blends. So quick & easy to do!

Stampin Up Touches of Texture Stamp Set - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I thought the flowers from Touches of Texture coordinated well with the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  I love this paper pack! If you want to get a taste of the  new papers, ribbons, embellishments, and/or In Colors, be sure to check out my Product Share Buffet.  You can order just the suites you want or have a “taste” of the full buffet.  Check it out HERE.

Impossible Fun Fold Card Tutorial

Yesterday I shared a fun fold card called the “Impossible Card Fold”.  I’m here to show you it’s anything but impossible! It’s super simple and fun to make. Here’s another look at my card.

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

Here’s the details how to make it…

  1. 1.Start with a piece of 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card stock.
  2. With the 4 1/4″ side at the top of the score board, score at 2 1/8.

Stampin Up Simply Scored Impossible fun fold card tutorial - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

2. With the 5 1/2″ side at the top, score at 2 3/4″ just to the score line across the middle.

Stampin Up Simply Scored Impossible fun fold card tutorial - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

3.  Flip so the other 5 1/2″ side is at the top and score at 1″ and 4 1/2″ just to the middle score line.

Stampin Up Simply Scored Impossible fun fold card tutorial - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

4. Cut along the score lines on the 5 1/2″ side from the top to the middle score line and from the bottom to the middle score line. (*Don’t cut the middle score line.)

Stampin Up Impossible fun fold card design - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

5. Now comes the fun part! Hold one side (I held the left side) and flip the other side back and then fold the center piece forward. It’s that simple!!!!!

To decorate, I cut 2 pieces of DSP 2 x 2 5/8 and 2 pieces 7/8 x 2. The stamped banner piece measures 3/4 x 4 1/4 and the layer measures 7/8 x 4 1/4. I put both banner pieces together and slid them in the top of the Everyday Label Punch. *Make sure it’s centered before punching. Offset the top layer before adhering.  Stamp sentiment and punch a hole with the 1/8 ” Handheld Circle Punch. (A shout out to Linda Heller for this cool punch trick!!!)

Take a 6″ piece of ribbon and fold in half.  Thread through the hole then slip the ends through the loop. Adhere across the front of the card.  Trim ends of the ribbon. 

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

I fussy cut the flower from a scrap of DSP and adhered with a glue dot. I stamped the birds on Whisper White with Soft Suede ink and let dry before coloring with my Stampin’ Blends. I cut it out with the Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered to the card. This card folds flat and fits in Stampin’ Up!’s standard medium envelopes. I decorated the envelope flap with the same beautiful Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.

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

I hope you will give this fun fold a try now that you see it’s NOT “Impossible” at all!!!!

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 Impossible Fun Fold Card base - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I will share the full color tutorial with directions and measurements on my blog tomorrow.  Make sure you subscribe to my blog so you don’t miss out! Here’s a look at the side view.

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!

One of the fun things we get to do at Stampin’ Up! events is to play with new product!  We made five cards throughout the day using some new stamps, ribbons, and paper. Here’s a look at the cards.

Stampin' Up! Free As A Bird all occasion card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love to color and these birds from the Bird Ballad Suite look like little chickadees to me. Of course you can use the Stampin’ Blends and make any color bird you want! The Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper makes a gorgeous backdrop and the Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim adds a soft touch.

If you follow my blog you know I love lighthouses and the beach! So you can imagine I was goo goo over this next card and suite.

Stampin' Up! Sailing Home masculine card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Come Sail Away Suite will appeal to the men in your life as well as anyone who enjoys the coast. There is so much variety in the Designer Series Papers in this pack! I love the Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine and the Sail Away Trinkets add the perfect finishing touch! I bought this set as a bundle with the coordinating Smooth Sailing Dies. Here’s a peek at the stamp set.

My next card is from the Perennial Essence Suite. The Designer Series Papers in this suite remind me of Van Gogh paintings.

This suite isn’t really what I would call my style though I do love the colors in the DSP.   I also like the Perennial Flower Punch and the colored Vellum Cardstock.

Is there one (or more) of these that’s going on your wishlist? I’ll have more sneak peeks for you all week!  Check back to see some of the awesome display boards. I will be offering product shares when the new annual catalog debuts in June. You can enjoy a “taste of the suites”, new ribbons, designer series papers, and/or the new In Colors.  Look for more information about ordering my product shares in May.

We did make one more card at OnStage and it was a Sneak Peek of the May Paper Pumpkin kit.  I’ll share that tomorrow.

Have a great evening!

Butterfly Gala Note Cards

The Butterfly Gala Bundle is one of my absolute favorite bundles in the Occasions Catalog! I love stamp sets with a matching punch and this bundle can be used for many different occasions!  Obviously I’m not the only one who loves this bundle as Stampin’ Up! sold out of their initial supply quickly!  I am happy to report they are back in stock so if you didn’t get it before, you’ll want to grab it now while you can! I made two quick & easy note cards that showcase this stamp set and punch!

The Butterfly Gala Stamp Set has 4 different sets of butterflies as well as solid images to add color to these beauties.  There’s also several sentiments which makes this set check off my #1 requirement…versatility!

You can choose to do a little Two-Step stamping to add color to your butterflies or color them with Stampin’ Markers or Blends.  You can even watercolor which makes for endless possibilities! I colored mine using Stampin’ Blends.

I love how this stamp set coordinates with the Butterfly Duet Punch.  You can stamp and punch both butterflies at once!

I make a lot of thank you cards and the Stampin’ Up! note cards and envelopes are the perfect size for a handwritten note or stamped sentiment. I added a little Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper to the front, stamped the envelopes to match and these cards were complete in no time at all!

Hoppy Birthday

Stampin Up So Hoppy Together birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I’m still making birthday cards!  March is my busiest month for birthdays!  I’m not a fan of real frogs (brings back memories of summers camping on Cape Cod when the boys would throw frogs in our inflatable boat); however, this little guy is stinkin’ adorable! I colored “Hoppy” with Stampin’ Blends and cut him out with the coordinating dies. (*The dies sold out fast but you can fussy cut him if you don’t have the dies). I popped him up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the “reed” (from the Home to Roost Stamp Set) on Whisper White cardstock then decided I wanted to add some color.  I squeezed some Pool Party ink in the lid of the pad and added several drops of water from my Aqua Painter. Then I did a quick wash on the card. I like the subtle color. Normally I would have used Shimmery White cardstock if I was going to watercolor but this worked fine.  It did curl a little but I just used extra adhesive on the back so it would lay flat.

The stamped sentiment comes from the So Hoppy Together Stamp Set and the new More Than Words Stamp Set. Both of these stamp sets are only available until March 31st (while supplies last). You can see all the products I used in the list below.  Simply click on any of the images and you’ll be directed to my online store.  Here’s the details and measurements.

  • Card Base is Thick Whisper White that measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.
  • Layer 1 is 3 3/4 x 5 Powder Pink.
  • Layer 2 (with stamped and die cut images) measures 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.
  • Stamp grass with Lemon Lime Twist ink.
  • Watercolor wash the background with Pool Party ink using Aqua Painter.
  • Stamp sentiment and frog in Memento Black ink. Cut Hoppy from scrap piece and adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Color Frog with Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Combo.
  • Cut frog, flowers, and lily pad using Hop Around Framelits Dies (or fussy cut).
  • Adhere die cut pieces. Pop Frog up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Decorate the envelope flap with a piece of Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper.

Oops! Card and Blog Candy Winner

Yesterday I shared a spring wreath birthday card I made using the Stamparatus.  If you missed that post, you can see it HERE.  I love the Stamparatus for many reasons, one of which is I get a “do over” if I don’t get a good image the first time I stamp.  It’s so easy to just reink and stamp again…it stamps in the exact spot making it look great every time! Here’s a video showcasing the Stamparatus if you want to see it in action.

So, what do you do if you get too much ink? I’m sure we’ve all experienced inky fingers getting on our project after it was finished! I prefer not to start over again so I try to turn my “boo boos” in to new creations.  Let’s face it, the recipient had no idea what my first attempt was supposed to look like (right?). Most times I just add an embellishment to cover it up (which is why I’m in love with the new Butterfly Duet Punch and Bitty Blooms Punch Pack).  Unfortunately, that wouldn’t work with this particular oops! Look what happened when I stamped the sentiment (after I had stamped my pretty spring wreath).

I hate it when ink gets on the rim of the stamp and transfers to the paper! I did not want to toss my pretty wreath! So a quick fix was to stamp the sentiment again on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock, punch it out with the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch and cut a navy layer with the Layering Circles Framelits.  Just adhere on top and mission accomplished!

Stampin Up Perennial Birthday and Accented Blooms wreath - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I like to challenge myself to find a way to “make it work” before tossing it in the trash and starting over. My friend Susan gave me a Tombow sand eraser and it helps to fix little smudges.

You can purchase these from Amazon. If you have a stamping fix story or idea, I’d love for you to share.  Email me (j.stark@myactv.net) or leave a comment below.

I can’t decide which card I like better. Do you have a preference?
