Making A CASE with Ginkgo Branch

Have you browsed through the new Mini Catalog? It is filled with fun new products and so many great ideas! I needed to make several sympathy cards and when I saw this beautiful card idea (on page 57) in the new Mini Catalog I decided to CASE it. CASE simply means to Copy And Share Everything or Copy And Selectively Edit.
Stampin' Up! Ginkgo Branch slimline sympathy card idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I selectively edited a few things! Here’s the details for this slimline card:

  • Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock – 7 x 8 1/2, scored at 3 1/2 for card base
  • Very Vanilla – 3 3/8 x 8 3/8 heat embossed using background stamp and clear embossing powder, scrap to stamp sentiment and cut with Stylish Shapes Die
  • Shimmery White Cardstock – die cut Ginkgo Branch flower dies (2 large, 3 small)
  • Polished Pink cardstock – die cut circle with Stylish Shapes Die
  • Simply Elegant Trim – ~18 in.

The sample card in the catalog used the Chic Dies to add a textured layer behind the flowers.  Instead, I used a retired stamp (En Francais), stamped it with VersaMark, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I love the subtle texture it adds in the background.

It’s been awhile since I watercolored and I love the new Water Painters! I used Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape, Mango Melody, Polished Pink, Melon Mambo, and Pear Pizzazz to color the flowers.  *Note- you do not want to pick up ink directly from the Stampin’ Pads. Just add a few drops of ink refills inside the lids of the Stamping’ Pads for a pallet to use with the water painters.

The Ginkgo Branch Bundle caught my eye right away in the new catalog! It is so different from other flower stamps and dies I have and can be used for many different occasions.

A Card Sketch for Feels Like Frost

Today I’m sharing two cards that showcase the beautiful Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper. You can keep it simple or step it up with additional layers, ribbon, and/or embellishments.
Stampin' Up! Feels Like Frost Clean & Simple card ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
The Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper is a returning favorite! This high-quality double-sided paper features stunning photographic images of snow and ice on one side, and whimsical hand-drawn designs with silver foil on the other.

Stampin' Up! Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper - for inspiration amd ordering information visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
Coordinating colors: Balmy Blue, Blushing Bride, Highland Heather, Night of Navy, Pretty Peacock, Purple Posy, Rococo Rose, Seaside Spray, Smoky Slate, Whisper White

The inspiration for today’s cards came from a card sketch from TGIF Challenges. Card sketches are a great starting point if you’re looking for some creative inspiration. Here’s a look at the sketch.
I love this clean & simple design! Here’s a look at each card.Stampin' Up! Feels Like Frost and Peaceful Moments Clean & Simple Sympathy card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUpStampin' Up!

Feels Like Frost Clean & Simple Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
You can make your strips and layers any size you want. Here’s my measurements:

  • Card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
  • Cardstock/Foil Layer: 3 3/4 x 4 7/8, 7/8 x 4 3/8 (envelope), 7/8 x 5 (inside)
  • DSP: Cut 2 strips 1 3/4 x 4 3/4, cut one of those strips in 2 pieces measuring 1 3/4 x 2 3/4, 1 3/4 x 1 15/16 (just under 2 inches), 3/4 x 4 1/4 (envelope), 3/4 x 4 7/8 (inside card)
  • Whisper White: 3 3/4 x 5 (inside), scrap to stamp and die cut sentiment

This simple sketch is great for showcasing coordinating DSP! You could mix and match different patterns, stamp in one space, add a sentiment in another, the possibilities are endless! I hope this inspires you to get creative and have some fun! Here’s another card design I shared previously that works well with the Feels Like Frost DSP. *Click on the image to view the original post.
