Stampin Up This Little Piggy and Paper Pumpkin Frights & Delights alternative birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp www.juststampin.com

This card reminds me of one of my favorite childhood books/movies, Charlotte’s Web. I saw this idea by Lisa Fast on the Paper Pumpkin Fan Club Facebook page. I knew this would be the perfect birthday card for my pig loving friend, Susan Itell. Lisa didn’t give any directions so I played around, changed it up a bit, and added the cute spider trinket from the Toil & Trouble Suite in the Holiday Catalog. Here’s the card details:

  • Line the opening of the treat bag at 4 1/2 and cut off the seam on the bottom.
  • Cut a 3 3/4 x 4 1/2 piece of whisper white cardstock and stamp sentiment. Slide the cardstock into the bag sleeve.  It fits snuggly.
  • Adhere the sleeve to a piece of 4 x 4 3/4 Black cardstock.
  • Adhere the black layer to a Blushing Bride card base cut 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.
  • Stamp the pig on Shimmery White cardstock and color with ink and an Aqua Painter.  Trim around the pig with Paper Snips and adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Add Baker’s Twine from the Paper Pumpkin kit around the top of the card and tie a bow. Attach the spider trinket with silver thread and a glue dot.

As Charlotte would say, “Teriffic!”

Here’s a few ideas from Pinterest and Facebook I shared at my Paper Pumpkin get together using the Back in Plaid kit. You can emboss the stocking (iron first and spray with hair spray), make baby booties (roll the cuff) or a winter cap (cut the heel off and add a candy treat inside).

Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin Back and Plaid embossed Christmas Stocking - Jeanie Stark StampinUp www.juststampin.com

Last year I filled the stockings with gift cards for friends and family.  It makes a quick & easy gift presentation.  I bought extra kits to use the stockings for table favors for our Christmas Eve dinner this year. I’m going to fill them with candy and questions.  It’s fun to have everyone go around the table and read their question and answer.  It really sparks some entertaining conversation!

U is for Upright Z-Fold Card

Welcome to my ABC with Fun Folds series. Today’s card features the new Bright Wishes Stamp Set. It is an Upright Z-Fold which is quite unique.

Fun Fold Upright Z Fold card using Stampin Up Bright Wishes Stamp Set and watercolor pencils. For more ideas, directions, and supplies visit www.juststampin.com

The wishing well reminds me of my childhood.  We had a wishing well in the middle of our side lawn and it served as second base for many kickball and softball games. I remember tossing pennies in the well and making a wish! Here’s a photo of me standing by our wishing well when I was 5.

img_2119-1
I couldn’t resist using a penny to hold my card “upright”.  Here’s the details how to make this unique fun fold.

My card base is 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2.  The DSP is from Delightful Daisy. My pieces measure 4 x 5 1/4 and 4 x 2 1/2.  The stamped panel is 3 x 4 layered with 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 Basic Black.

I liked it in the black and white but then decided to color it using the watercolor pencils and blender pen.

Which way do you like it…black & white or colored?

Here’s the side view.

This really is quick & easy to make. Just make sure when adhering your stamped panel you only put adhesive on the bottom half.  I attached the penny with a Stampin’ Dimensional to hold the card upright. You could easily stamp a sentiment and pop it up to hold your panel.  I chose to stamp my sentiment on the back for this card.

I really like the sentiments in this set…the different choices make it versatile for many occasions.

T is for Tunnel Fold

Welcome to my ABC’s with Fun Folds series. Today’s fun fold is a Tunnel card.  It is so cool when you open it up to reveal the “tunnel” on the inside of the card.

I love lighthouses! When I first saw the High Tide Stamp Set I knew I had to have it. I enjoy visiting lighthouses during our travels and learning the history of each. I made this card for my husband for Father’s Day.  I am usually very last minute; however, this year I am going to be away for Father’s Day so I needed to make his card before I left. I love this sentiment from High Tide…it works for Father’s Day as well as other occasions. Parenting is not always easy and it helps to have someone to support you with the tough decisions. I feel like we got lucky in the kid department…we are blessed with two wonderful children and we are so proud of both of them.

Let’s get to today’s card…

You need two 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ sheets of card stock. The “window” piece is scored at 2-1/8, 4-1/4″ & 6-3/8″. I used Shimmery White and Marina Mist.

img_3147

Die cut a window in the center of the window piece (I used the Layering Circles Framelits).

The “base” piece is stamped before folded in half. I did a watercolor wash on the top portion of my card using Soft Sky Ink and my Aqua Painter. I stamped the water with Marina Mist ink then sponged it with a sponge dauber.

img_3141

Adhere the left panel and the right panel of the window piece to the base piece.

Decorate the front of the card as you like.  I used Shimmery White cardstock and did the same watercolor wash, stamping, and sponging as I did on the inside. I used Sahara Sand around the base of my lighthouse. The lighthouse is a two step stamp.  I used Dapper Denim and Smoky Slate then fussy cut the lighthouse.

img_3146

I stamped the sentiment from Crazy About You in Marina Mist and layered this piece on a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 Marina Mist. I wrapped some Linen Thread and tied and bow before adhering it to the card base. It really is a simple card with a WOW factor when you open it! Some simple stamping on the envelope flap and it’s done! (A week ahead…I think this might be a record for me!! LOL)
