OnStage Make ‘N Takes

One of the fun things we get to do at Stampin’ Up! events is to play with new product!  We made five cards throughout the day using some new stamps, ribbons, and paper. Here’s a look at the cards.

Stampin' Up! Free As A Bird all occasion card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love to color and these birds from the Bird Ballad Suite look like little chickadees to me. Of course you can use the Stampin’ Blends and make any color bird you want! The Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper makes a gorgeous backdrop and the Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim adds a soft touch. I love the sentiments in the Free As A Bird Stamp Set!  In fact I love the entire suite and ordered it all!

Now what crafter would not want this next card?!

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This card uses products from the Follow Your Art Suite. The It Starts With Art stamp set has fun sayings and adorable crafting tools to stamp and color.  It even has coordinating Arts & Crafts Dies!  Guess what else?  I got to take this stamp set home with me! Woo Hoo!Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art stamp set - to order visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

If you follow my blog you know I love lighthouses and the beach! So you can imagine I was goo goo over this next card and suite.

Stampin' Up! Sailing Home masculine card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Come Sail Away Suite will appeal to the men in your life as well as anyone who enjoys the coast. There is so much variety in the Designer Series Papers in this pack! I love the Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine and the Sail Away Trinkets add the perfect finishing touch! I bought this set as a bundle with the coordinating Smooth Sailing Dies. Here’s a peek at the stamp set.

My next card is from the Perennial Essence Suite. The Designer Series Papers in this suite remind me of Van Gogh paintings.

Stampin' Up! Floral Essence best wishes card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This suite isn’t really what I would call my style though I do love the colors in the DSP.   I also like the Perennial Flower Punch and the colored Vellum Cardstock.

Is there one (or more) of these that’s going on your wishlist? I’ll have more sneak peeks for you all week!  Check back to see some of the awesome display boards. I will be offering product shares when the new annual catalog debuts in June. You can enjoy a “taste of the suites”, new ribbons, designer series papers, and/or the new In Colors.  Look for more information about ordering my product shares in May.

We did make one more card at OnStage and it was a Sneak Peek of the May Paper Pumpkin kit.  I’ll share that tomorrow.

Have a great evening!

All About Cling Stamps

Yesterday I shared Stampin’ Up!’s retiring list.  While the wood mount and clear mount stamp sets are retiring, some of these stamp sets are carrying over and will be available in cling. cling stamps header

Stampin’ Up!’s classic red rubber stamps are now better than ever! The same quality rubber material you’ve always loved now comes with an adhesive image label that will cling like crazy to clear blocks or Stamparatus plates each and every time you use them.

HOW TO LABEL YOUR STAMPS

Note: Once you place the label on the stamp, it is adhered permanently. Attempting to remove or adjust the label will damage the stamp’s foam.

  1. Remove the paper backing from the stamp.
  2. Leaving the image label on the sheet, remove the paper backing from the label.
  3. Line up the foam side of the stamp with the image label, then press it evenly to adhere it to the label. Make sure it is correctly positioned before you adhere it to the stamp.
  4. Remove the stamp and label from the label sheet.
  5. Place the stamp on an acrylic block to begin stamping.

Best Practices

To remove the stamp from the block, grasp securely near the image label and remove slowly. To clean the labels, simply rinse under running water. Avoid alcohol-based cleaners.

WATCH THIS VIDEO TO SEE HOW TO LABEL YOUR CLING STAMPS!

Stampin’ Up! Retiring List

Last Chance Products header

In the new 2019-2020 annual catalog, clear-mount and wood-mount stamps will no longer be available. (*The only exception is background stamps, which will still be available in wood-mount.) All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling mount only beginning June 4, 2019. So while clear mount and wood mount stamps are retiring some stamps will be carrying over and available as cling stamps.  I will share more information about the cling stamps and other news tomorrow! Be sure to check back!

Click on the links below for a list of retiring products.  I like to take a highlighter and mark my catalogs. As you read through the list, watch for the notes that say ‘returning in cling’ which means they are carrying over into new catalog as a cling stamp. Also the ‘no longer bundle’ means they are carrying over but not at the 10% off bundle price. Save 10% while available!

OnStage

I attended Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage convention in Atlantic City over the weekend.  I had so much fun with my stamping friends (old and new).  We got to see the new Annual Catalog and play with new products.

Starting April 15th, this number will increase to 6. Over the next few months, there will be small batches of inventory arriving and it’s anticipated to be depleted rapidly.

Happiness Blooms for the Pals Blog Hop

Pals BLog Hop Badge April 2019

Welcome to the Pals’ April  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we love to put our ”Families First”! Our Design Team created beautiful projects to inspire you. 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.

Mother’s Day is right around the corner.  When my daughter was little she loved playing with her baby dolls! On Mother’s Day one year she let us know she was a mother too because she took care of her babies. That memory always brings a smile to my face!  I made two cards to share with you today.  One for my mom and one for my daughter. Both use the same layout and can be used for Mother’s Day or any occasion by simply changing the sentiment.

Stampin Up Happiness Blooms Mother's Day card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper on both of these cards.  This paper is so bright and cheery it just makes me smile! There are many more color combinations you could mix and match with these fun designs. Here’s a look at the different patterns.

Stampin Up Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper - for inspiration and ordering visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I cut a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of DSP to cover the front of a Whisper White card.

Stampin Up Mother's Day card idea using Just Because and Bloom By Bloom stamp sets - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I layered a 1 3/4 x 4 1/4 piece of DSP with a piece of 2 x 4 1/4 coordinating cardstock. Then I wrapped my ribbon around before adhering to the card.  The Mother’s Day sentiment is from the Just Because stamp set and the flower is from the Bloom By Bloom stamp set which is part of the Happiness Blooms Suite in the Occasions Catalog. I cut out the stamped piece and  coordinating cardstock using the Layering Ovals Framelits and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The bow is attached with a glue dot. This card is so quick & easy to make I just had to make another!

Stampin Up Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper and Eastern Beauty Stamp Set makes a quick & easy all occasion card - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Are you wondering where I got the pattern in the middle? I made it by stamping the little dots on Whisper White cardstock. You can make your own patterned paper in any color! For this card I used the Eastern Beauty stamp set to stamp my sentiment and cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I punched the little flower out from the DSP using the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack. I added a Happiness Blooms Enamel Dot in the center.  The flowers at the bottom are fussy cut and adhered with glue dots. You can find a list of all the products I used below.

Of course I had to make my envelopes coordinate. It’s quick & easy to do with a 1/4 inch strip of coordinating cardstock and a 2 x 6 piece of DSP.  Simply adhere to the envelope flap and trim away the excess.

Stampin’ Trimmer Discontinuation

Click on the images below to get them while you can! 

Die-Cutting and Embossing Product Line Changes

Stampin’ Up! is changing its die cutting and dry embossing lines. The new dies and folders will continue to work with the die-cutting machine we currently carry but in the 2019-20 catalog there will not be a die-cutting machine. I expect that one will be announced at some point during the year. After extensive research,
demonstrator feedback, and evaluation, Stampin’ Up! decided to move in a new direction and set the foundation for a greater die-cutting and embossing opportunity. One of the significant factors in this decision is that instead of working with a supplier who works with a manufacturer, they are moving to a direct-to-manufacturer relationship. This means that we will work directly with the factories who manufacture our dies and folders instead of working with another company who then works with different factories. This gives us greater control and potential in the manufacturing process.

Upcoming Pricing Changes

The new annual catalog will debut in June and I want you to be aware of upcoming pricing changes.  While these increases are minimal and are mainly cardstock and envelopes, I want you to have the option to purchase these products now before the price increase. Click HERE for a complete list of individual product price increases in the upcoming 2019–2020 annual catalog.

*As of June 1, 2019, the price per kit of the month-to-month Paper Pumpkin subscription will increase by $2.05 and the price of the 1-month prepaid subscription will increase by $2.00 in the United States.

Butterfly Gala Note Cards

The Butterfly Gala Bundle is one of my absolute favorite bundles in the Occasions Catalog! I love stamp sets with a matching punch and this bundle can be used for many different occasions!  Obviously I’m not the only one who loves this bundle as Stampin’ Up! sold out of their initial supply quickly!  I am happy to report they are back in stock so if you didn’t get it before, you’ll want to grab it now while you can! I made two quick & easy note cards that showcase this stamp set and punch!

Stampin Up Butterfly Gala simple thank you note card ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Butterfly Gala Stamp Set has 4 different sets of butterflies as well as solid images to add color to these beauties.  There’s also several sentiments which makes this set check off my #1 requirement…versatility!

You can choose to do a little Two-Step stamping to add color to your butterflies or color them with Stampin’ Markers or Blends.  You can even watercolor which makes for endless possibilities! I colored mine using Stampin’ Blends.

I love how this stamp set coordinates with the Butterfly Duet Punch.  You can stamp and punch both butterflies at once!

I love homemade cards and gifts! My daughter has been home for spring break this week and she surprised me with a gift from the heart that took me on a trip down Memory Lane! We went out for my birthday dinner last night and she couldn’t wait to give me these.

Birthday gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

She reached out to my friends and family and asked them to email her a favorite happy or funny memory they have with me. It was pure joy and laughter as I read these messages and stories from friends and family.  My heart is so full!  I feel so blessed!

I hope this inspires you to make someone smile today. Reach out to someone you may not have seen in awhile, tell someone what you love about them, send someone a card today!

Hoppy Birthday

Stampin Up So Hoppy Together birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I’m still making birthday cards!  March is my busiest month for birthdays!  I’m not a fan of real frogs (brings back memories of summers camping on Cape Cod when the boys would throw frogs in our inflatable boat); however, this little guy is stinkin’ adorable! I colored “Hoppy” with Stampin’ Blends and cut him out with the coordinating dies. (*The dies sold out fast but you can fussy cut him if you don’t have the dies). I popped him up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the “reed” (from the Home to Roost Stamp Set) on Whisper White cardstock then decided I wanted to add some color.  I squeezed some Pool Party ink in the lid of the pad and added several drops of water from my Aqua Painter. Then I did a quick wash on the card. I like the subtle color. Normally I would have used Shimmery White cardstock if I was going to watercolor but this worked fine.  It did curl a little but I just used extra adhesive on the back so it would lay flat.

The stamped sentiment comes from the So Hoppy Together Stamp Set and the new More Than Words Stamp Set. Both of these stamp sets are only available until March 31st (while supplies last).

Oops! Card and Blog Candy Winner

Yesterday I shared a spring wreath birthday card I made using the Stamparatus.  If you missed that post, you can see it HERE.  I love the Stamparatus for many reasons, one of which is I get a “do over” if I don’t get a good image the first time I stamp.  It’s so easy to just reink and stamp again…it stamps in the exact spot making it look great every time! Here’s a video showcasing the Stamparatus if you want to see it in action.

So, what do you do if you get too much ink? I’m sure we’ve all experienced inky fingers getting on our project after it was finished! I prefer not to start over again so I try to turn my “boo boos” in to new creations.  Let’s face it, the recipient had no idea what my first attempt was supposed to look like (right?). Most times I just add an embellishment to cover it up (which is why I’m in love with the new Butterfly Duet Punch and Bitty Blooms Punch Pack).  Unfortunately, that wouldn’t work with this particular oops! Look what happened when I stamped the sentiment (after I had stamped my pretty spring wreath).

I hate it when ink gets on the rim of the stamp and transfers to the paper! I did not want to toss my pretty wreath! So a quick fix was to stamp the sentiment again on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock, punch it out with the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch and cut a navy layer with the Layering Circles Framelits.  Just adhere on top and mission accomplished!

Stampin Up Perennial Birthday and Accented Blooms wreath - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I like to challenge myself to find a way to “make it work” before tossing it in the trash and starting over. My friend Susan gave me a Tombow sand eraser and it helps to fix little smudges.

You can purchase these from Amazon. If you have a stamping fix story or idea, I’d love for you to share.  Email me (j.stark@myactv.net) or leave a comment below.

I can’t decide which card I like better. Do you have a preference?
