Cut It Out Fun Fold for the Pals Blog Hop

Blog Hop August

Welcome to the Pals August, 2018 Blog Hop. We love to cut it out so this month our creations feature our favorite “cuts” using punches, Framelits and Thinlits from the current Stampin’ Up! catalog.

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 the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I have a fun fold to share with you today inspired by Dawn Griffith!  I love fun folds and this one is quite simple and can be used for a variety of occasions!

Stampin Up Detailed With Love Fun Fold friend card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Do you recognize the stamped floral image? It’s from the Make A Difference Stamp Set and it coordinates perfectly with the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper! I stamped it in Memento ink and colored it to match using the Stampin’ Blends.

It takes just a few quick cuts and this fun fold card is ready to assemble! Here’s the measurements:

Card Base (Crumb Cake): 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
Layer 1 (Rich Razzleberry): 3 3/4 x 5 1/2
DSP Layer: 3 1/4 x 6 Score at 5 9/16
Whisper White Layer (inside piece): 3 1/4 x 5 1/2

Circle Punches:
2 1/4″ : Glimmer Paper
2″ : Punch from Layer 1 cardstock
1 3/4″ : Whisper White (for stamped layer)

Layering Circles Framelits:
Cut from Layer 1 cardstock with 2 3/8 straight & 2 3/4 Scallop
Cut from DSP with 2 3/8 straight

Directions:
Fold the DSP layer along the score line and adhere to the back of the Rich Razzleberry layer before adhering the Rich Razzleberry layer to the card base. Adhere the Whisper White layer to the Rich Razzleberry so it is hidden under the DSP layer. Adhere the scallop circle piece to frame the circle cut from the DSP. Wrap ~12″ ribbon around the DSP layer and tie in a simple knot. Adhere the stamped layer to the cardstock and Glimmer layers and attach inside the opening using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin Up Heartfelt Blooms Thinking of You and Thank You card ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today’s cards are made using the distINKtive stamp set, Heartfelt Blooms. You can get this set for FREE during Sale-A-Bration (through March 31, 2018) with a qualifying purchase.

Heartfelt Blooms stamp set

Heartfelt Blooms is a beautiful, photographic bouquet in a gorgeous vintage look. A one-step stunner for all your projects! The new Distinktive stamp lays down the ink at different opacities, giving the finished image more depth. I love that there are 3 great sentiments for different occasions. Here’s a close up of the stamped image.

Stampin Up Heartfelt Blooms Thank You card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

When I make a card I usually stamp more than one.  I like to play around with different color combos, sentiments, etc. I chose Night of Navy with Bermuda Bay and Fresh Fig with Blushing Bride. I can’t wait to make more! I also played around with adding pearls or not. I like it both ways so I guess it depends whether or not you want to add the extra postage. This is such a clean & simple card and quick & easy to make! You can use it for many different occasions!

Card Base 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.

Layer 1: 3 3/4 x 5

Whisper White Stamped Layer: 3 1/2 x 4 3/4

I adhered the layered image to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I love to stamp my envelopes to match. It really adds that extra special touch.  Get in the habit of stamping your envelope when you stamp your card and it takes no time at all!

You can stamp in one color like I did or stamp in a neutral color and color in your favorite shades. Here’s another look at the samples from the video.

I wanted to use all 3 sentiments from this set so I made a sympathy card in Night of Navy and Crumb Cake with Gingham Ribbon.

Paper Pumpkin To The Rescue!

I needed a few more thank you notes and it was Paper Pumpkin to the rescue! I love getting these all inclusive kits in the mail every month!  Many times I do my own thing with the supplies in the kit and it’s just nice to have everything precut and ready to go. It makes it quick & easy to create.  With my fractured elbow and limited mobility at the moment, I need easy! I used the Love Notes from the January Paper Pumpkin kit to make thank you notes.

Paper Pumpkin Alternative Thank You card idea using Heartfelt Love Notes - Jeanie Stark Stampin Up

The kit contained supplies for 16 projects and included the Heartfelt Love Notes Photopolymer Stamp set and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Spot.

I stamped the sentiment from Rose Wonder stamp set on the banner and adhered it over the heart.  I also stamped the inside with a sentiment from So Many Shells stamp set and used the scalloped die cut note cards (included in the kit) to write a personal message.  I love how these notes tuck in the pocket and tie with a bow.

If you are a current Paper Pumpkin subscriber, you can purchase refill kits (while supplies last) from my online store.  The refill kit comes with everything except the stamp set and ink spot for just $8! What a deal…that’s just .50 a card (and that includes the envelope)! I will be buying more of these! You can buy the refill kit and use other stamps from your collection as I did for mine.

Thank Goodness For A Friend Like You for TTTC #22

Stampin Up So Many Shells Thank You Friend card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Get ready to play Tic Tac Toe because this week’s board by Corinne Blake is one of my favorites with simple and fun choices!!!

img_8445

I used all 9 elements on my card which made tic tac toe all 8 ways!!

Stampin Up So Many Shells Thank You Friend card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

It is so much fun and easy to create when you pick 3 in a row and play! Each week I gather the different elements from the board so they are in front of me. This week I started by grabbing my circle framelits and black cardstock then looked through my swatch books for DSP with black and/or stripes. (I found both!) The floral design from Whole Lot of Lovely certainly checked off the box for “vibrant”.  Then I chose a color from the DSP to use for my “layer” and “ribbon”. I knew it would be easy to add a heat embossed thank you sentiment for a friend and by cutting it out with a circle die that checked off 5 elements…circle, black, thank you, friend, heat embossed. How easy is that?!!!  Trust me, having the items in front of you will get those creative juices flowing…you will see things that go together. Just start creating! All I had left to do was a simple layout to put it all together. (*I keep sketches of simple layouts as well as cards I’ve made or received with layouts I like to use as inspiration for future designs. This layout is clean & simple and could easily be used with many different papers and take on a totally different look and feel.  I know I will be using it again!) I hope you will give it a try and play along. For more inspiration click HERE to see what the other designers created this week. I would love for you to add your creation to the Tic Tac Toe Challenge.

Here’s the measurements for today’s card:

Card Base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 (Basic Black)

Layer 1:  5 1/2 x 2 1/4 (Striped DSP)

Layer 2:  4 3/4 x 3 1/2 (Pear Pizzazz)

Layer 3:  4 1/2 x 3 1/4 (Floral DSP)

Layer 4: Stitched Shapes Circle Die

Just Peachy!

It seems my weekend was all about food…a crab fest, cupcakes, and peaches! Yesterday my daughter and I went to the annual Peach Festival in town. There’s nothing like fresh fruit when it’s in season…sweet and delicious!

img_6266

Today’s card is just peachy! I made it for a friend who could use a little pick me up.  I thought I’d drop it off with some fresh peaches to brighten her day.

Simple card made with Stampin Up Lovely Words Thinlits Dies and Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper. For directions, supplies, and inspiration visit www.juststampin.com

The DSP is from a Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper and it’s just as sweet as those peaches!

DSP Whole Lot of Lovely

This is another one of those “formula” cards that’s quick & easy to put together. I cut my card base 4 1/4 x 11 and scored it at 5 1/2. The DSP layer measures 3 1/2 x 5 with a mat that’s just 1/8 larger at 3 5/8 x 5 1/8. I like the way the ribbon looks like it is “hugging” the card. (At least that’s what I imagined and wanted to convey!) The sentiment is cut from the Lovely Words Thinlits Dies.  I have used the dies in this set a lot and find they are very versatile. I love that I can snip them out (like I did on this card) or just die cut the shape and layer it with paper behind it.

My card wouldn’t be complete without an envelope to coordinate.

I goes great with the basket of peaches.  You can really see how realistic the Designer Series Paper looks!

I also needed a thank you card so while I had my paper out I just cut for two! (I do that a lot!)  I changed it up a bit and used Peekaboo Peach cardstock and ribbon instead of Tranquil Tide.  I also used the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Squares Framelits to layer the sentiment.

I’m glad I came home with a lot of peaches yesterday because I seem to be giving them away faster than I can make peach cobbler! Here’s both cards side by side. Do you have a preference?

Stamp Set: So Many Shells (sentiment) Papers: Pool Party, Tranquil Tide, Peekaboo Peach, Whisper White  Ink: Peekaboo Peach  Tools & Accessories: Lovely Words Thinlits Dies, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Layering Squares Framelits,  1/2″ Tranquil Tide Finely Woven Ribbon, 3/8″ Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon (retired)

One Big Meaning for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #9

Stampin Up Thank You card using One Big Meaning Stamp Set, Layering CIrcles Framelits, and Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. For inspiration and supplies visit www.juststampin.com

tic tac toe

I knew once I got back home there would be so much to catch up on.  Needless to say I am late posting for this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge. Here’s this week’s challenge board.

 No automatic alt text available.

I decided to go down the far right row: all things round, stacked sentiment, and plants. My card is a simple thank you card but could be used for any occasion. There’s a sneak peek for you too…the new Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper which will be available in the holiday catalog next month!

Stampin Up Thank You card using One Big Meaning Stamp Set, Layering CIrcles Framelits, and Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. For inspiration and supplies visit www.juststampin.com

This simple card is one of those layouts you could use again and again and it would look different each time by just changing the DSP, coordinating colors, and sentiment. I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Circles Framelits but you could use squares, ovals, etc. I’m loving the Lemon Lime Twist with Garden Green.  I didn’t think I was going to like this color at all and I keep finding color combinations that look great with it! I guess the lesson here is never prejudge! Check back tomorrow for a color chart to use with the new In Colors!

How beautiful is this Painted Autumn DSP?! The other patterns are just as wonderful! My holiday preorder came yesterday and I couldn’t wait to see all the new paper!  I love DSP!  I will have more sneak peeks for you throughout the month. If you’ve ordered from me in the last 6 months your catalog will be arriving later this month.  I had them shipped directly from Stampin’ Up! so you will get to see all the new goodies soon!

My ABC Fun Folds from P-T

This past week has been a series of unfortunate events from my computer crashing to a trip to the ER with a head injury. On the upside, I am happy to report my new computer should be up and running later today and I am lucky to have a “thick skull”! I apologize for not posting the last of the fun folds yet; however, I hope to be back later today with a new fun fold card to share. Until then here’s some more of the fun fold designs I did in my ABC series. I have already received some cards in the mail for the fun fold card swap and let me say my first thought has been, “I wish I could keep these!” There is still time to participate so I hope you will create a fun fold card and get it in the mail this week. Click HERE for all the details. If you have never made a fun fold card before you need to give it a try! They are a lot easier than they look!

Thanks for Being You for Tic Tac Toe Challenge 03

Today is Thursday which means it’s time to play Tic Tac Toe.  Here’s this week’s challenge board.

Here’s a card I altered for this week’s challenge.

img_3864

I made a T for Tic Tac Toe by using elements across the top row and down the middle: blue, butterfly, bow and butterfly, twine, stitching.  It’s easy and so much fun to create using the challenge board. I just realized I also made tic tac toe going down the far right side without even trying: bow, scallop, rectangle. I hope you’ll play along! Just pick 3 (or more) and create. Then go to www.tictactoechallenge.com and enter your card.

J is for Joy Fold

Welcome to my ABC’s with Fun Folds series.  Today I have a Joy fold card for you. The joy fold is basically a card within a card.  It is all about the layers and a fun focal point.  This Little Piggy is the most adorable stamp set!  It will be available June 1st.  I’ve been waiting for her big debut until it was closer to when you could order…I didn’t want to tease you any longer than necessary.  I couldn’t resist giving her center stage on my card today.

Stampin Up This Little Piggy fun fold card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Isn’t she stinkin’ cute?! I used my aqua painter to bring her to life.  I gave my Shimmery White cardstock a quick wash with Soft Sky then I stamped Little Piggy with Basic Black ink. I used Flirty Flamingo and Sahara Sand inks with the aqua painter.  It was so fast & easy…just a quick wash with the brush.  No need to overthink it…she’s a pig…she likes to be dirty and handles imperfection with pride! She has several friends in her stamp set too!

Stampin Up This Little Piggy Stamp Set - to order visit my blog at juststampin.com

I have lots of photos and measurements for you today so you can make one of these on your own.  The card base is Sahara Sand cut at 8 1/2 x 4 1/4 and scored at 5 1/2. Now let’s start layering…

Fun Fold Card- Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Flirty Flamingo Layer measures 4 x 5 1/4.  The Polka Dot pattern is from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack (retiring) but you could easily use the same patterned paper as the front.  This layer measures 3 3/4 x 5.  Now for the front layers…

Fun Fold card idea - for ideas and inspiration visit juststampin.com Jeanie Stark StampinUp The Flirty Flamingo layer measures 2 3/4 x 4.  The DSP is from the new Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper. It measures 2 1/2 x 3 3/4.  There are many fun patterns in this pack.

Stampin Up Pick A Pattern Designer Series Paper - for ideas and inspiration visit juststampin.com Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Little Piggy sits on a Sahara Sand card base measuring 8 x 3 and scored at 4.  The Flirty Flamingo layer measures 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 and my Shimmery White layer measures 2 1/2 x 3 1/2. I adhered this inside the card making sure to center it.

The inside layers for this are Flirty Flamingo and Whisper White and are the same measurements as the front. I stamped the sentiment in Basic Black.
