W is for Wedding for the Pals Blog Hop

Blog Hop Badge August 2019

Welcome to the Pals’ August Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “Special Occasions”  – cards or projects that adds beauty to the special occasions we all love to make cards for! 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’ve been sharing cards for each letter of the alphabet in my ABC Card Series. (Make sure you follow my blog so you don’t miss out on cards for every occasion from A to Z!) Today I have a wedding card idea using the Piece of Cake Stamp Set and Lovely Flowers Die.

Stampin' Up! Piece of Cake and Lovely Flowers Wedding card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Lovely Flowers Die adds that special touch to this wedding card.
Here’s the simple recipe to make this wedding “cake”:

  • Card Base : 4 1/4 x 11 Petal Pink scored at 5 1/2
  • Die Cut Layer: 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White cut with the Lovely Flowers Die
  • DSP layer: 2 x 4 Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper
  • Scallop Circle Die : 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 Petal Pink
  • Stitched Circle Die: 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 Whisper White

I stamped the cake in Blackberry Bliss ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White and colored the flowers with Petal Pink and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. The cake stand is stamped on Smokey Slate with Smokey Slate ink. I punched the cake and stand using the Cake Builder Punch.  (You can purchase the stamp set and punch as a bundle and save 10%.)

The card is quick & easy to assemble once you have all the pieces cut. I adhered the DSP to the Die layer and then adhered it to the card base. I placed the cake and stand on the stitched die where I wanted them and drew a light pencil line above the cake to stamp MR&MRS.  I stamped the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss then adhered the pieces covering the pencil line with the cake. The stamped layer is popped up with Dimensionals.  I added a simple twine bow with a Glue Dot and 3 tiny rhinestones for a little bling.

I usually make more than one card when I’m creating and I like to try out different designs.  So here’s the great debate…Top or Bottom (for the Lovely Flowers Die)? Twine or Ribbon? Here’s both side by side – you decide! Leave a comment and let me know which one you prefer.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, September 11, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share their “It’s the Sentiment that Counts” projects. Don’t miss the fun!

Sunshine Wishes for Kelly and Kyle!

My beautiful niece got married this summer. I made several wedding cards for family members to give.  Today I’m sharing a quick & easy card to hold a check or cash.

Stampin Up Sunshine Wishes money holder wedding card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits and Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper.  My niece loves pink and not only were the bridesmaids dresses a pretty soft pink, her bouquet (made by my talented sister) had a touch of pink too!

This card is simple to make using two of my favorite tools, the Stampin’ Trimmer and the envelope punch board.  Many thanks to Amy Koenders for the inspiration for this card. Start with a 7 x 8 1/2 piece of DSP (or cardstock) and score along the long side at 3 and 6.  (I love that the Stampin’ Trimmer cuts and scores!) Next, use the envelope punch board and line up the shorter side at 3 1/2 and punch on the side with the score line closest to it. Line up the notch with the cutting point on your trimmer and cut from the edge to the notch on just one side.


Fold on the score lines and add sticky strip along the sides of the pocket. Stamp a sentiment on the inside.  I used the Floral Phrases stamp set and Mossy Meadow ink.

To make the belly band cut a 3 1/2 x 7 piece of Petal Pink cardstock and adhere it to a 3 3/4 x 7 piece of Gold Foil. Score at 1 7/8 and 5. Fold along the score lines and adhere the ends. Wrap ribbon around and tie a bow. I adhered the dies from Sunshine Wishes Thinlits which I cut from Gold Foil and Thick Very Vanilla cardstock. The belly band will slide on and off the card.

No envelope was necessary for this card as it was placed in the card box at the reception.  I love these pictures of the happy couple on their wedding day.

Here’s to Happily Ever After!

Wishing you a wonderful day!

A Double Z Fun Fold with Sweet Soiree

Stampin Up Petal Palette and Sweet Soiree fun fold wedding card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s another card my sister and I collaborated on while playing around with the new designer series paper packs. We both fell in love with the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper! The double sided paper has silver foil accents on one side and even though they don’t photograph well, they are just gorgeous in person!

I love the the coordinating colors in this paper.  We used 4 different designs on this fun fold card.  The cake is fussy cut from one of the designs and popped up on Stampin Dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the Petal Palette stamp set and is stamped in Flirty Flamingo. (I can’t wait to make more cards with this stamp set and coordinating dies!!!)

I masked the Best Wishes sentiment and stamped it to fit on the inside of the card.
