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.
