U is for Uplifting

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ll be sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! There are so many great sentiment choices for Uplifting cards.  However, once I saw the sentiments in the Royal Peacock Stamp Set my decision was made! I can’t believe this is the first time I’ve inked up this stamp set! (I can guarantee you it won’t be the last!) I couldn’t stop creating and playing with this stamp set and coordinating dies!

I love everything in the Nobel Peacock Suite!!! The colors just pop together! I started with Blueberry Bushel for my card base.  It measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/4.  With the 8 1/4 piece at the top it is scored at 1 1/4, 2 1/4, 6. and 7. I used the Nobel Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper to cut the strip along the sides.  These measure 1 1/8 x 5 3/8. I used 3 inks to stamp the Peacock…Blueberry Bushel at the top, Old Olive in the middle, and Pretty Peacock  along the bottom.  Then I inked the overlay stamp in Blueberry Bushel making sure to line up the centers on the feathers.  I colored the peacock with my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends and used my Pretty Peacock and Blueberry Bushel markers to add some accents. (I outlined the feathers on the bottom.)  I used the coordinating dies to cut out the peacock and some feathers in Pretty Peacock and Old Olive then I sponged the other ink colors on top.  I stamped the sentiment in Blueberry Bushel ink, cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Dies, and popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The gorgeous Reversible Ribbon and Nobel Peacock Rhinestones add the finishing touch! Obviously this is not one of my usual quick cards but it was easy! I love how it turned out. I can’t wait to pop it in the mail. It will make a nice display on a desk or shelf! You can add a 3 1/2 x 5 piece of Whisper White on the back to add a special note (or stamp some of those other great sentiments!)

I made this card for my daughter. I can’t believe she is back at school for her last year!  Here’s an update as many of you reached out and asked how she did at the College Bridge Tournament in Las Vegas.  Well, she won first place in the Partners Tournament! (I don’t know where this child came from!  LOL) Here’s a photo she sent me of her with her partner!

Bridge Tournament Ist place winners

As much as my daughter enjoyed the tournament, a highlight of the trip was brunch with the guest speaker, James Holzhauer.  We are huge Jeopardy fans and watched in awe as he competed on the show this summer and won over $2 million. Here’s a photo of her and some of the Georgia Tech Bridge Team with “Jeopardy James” at the Rainforest Cafe.

Stampin Up Birds of A Feather Thank You Note Card idea colored with Stampin' Blends - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ll be sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! I think I send more thank you cards than anything else. Today’s card is for my friend Laura who lives in Virginia. I recently visited her and her two talented chickens! Have you heard there’s a new chick in town?! The adorable chicken on today’s card is from the stamp set Birds of a Feather (available Sept. 4th in the new Holiday Catalog). I knew it would be perfect for her!

Stampin' Up! Birds of a Feather Stamp set from the 2019 Holiday catalog - to order visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

You know my go to for thank you cards is the Stampin’ Up! Note Cards & Envelopes. They are the perfect size for a handwritten note.

Stampin' Up! Birds of A Feather Thank You Note Card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This card came together quick by using my favorite quick tools, Stampin’ Up! punches!  I used the 1″, 2″, and 2 1/4″ Circle Punches along with the Layering Circles Dies for the little scalloped layer on the sentiment.  The chicken was stamped in Memento Black Ink and colored with the So Saffron, Cherry Cobbler, and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends. The sentiment comes from another new stamp set in the Holiday Catalog, To Every Season (available Sept. 4th).

You can purchase this stamp set in a bundle with 4 coordinating punches (heart, leaf, snowflake, and bat). You SAVE 10% when you purchase the bundle! It’s so versatile and great for seasons and holidays year round!

How perfect is the DSP background?! It’s from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper!  I used it on the envelope too!

I found this t shirt at Cracker Barrel. Perfect thank you gift to go with the card! Laura loves her chickens and I think she will love this shirt!
