A New Look for the Wood Crate Framelits

I bet I’m not the only one who shops and sees color in Stampin’ Up! names! (My daughter bought a lovely Crushed Curry top! LOL)  I keep my color swatch book in my purse so I have it when I’m out shopping. (I also have one that I keep in my craft room.) You never know where you’ll find inspiration! Today I have a new look for the Wood Crate Framelits and a peek at some of the new Designer Series Papers.

Stampin Up 2019 -2021 In Colors and Yankee Candle votives - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Yesterday was my first venture out since I had surgery on my arm. My daughter drove me around to run a few errands. I felt like I hit the jackpot at the Yankee Candle store…votive candles were 1/2 price!  I pulled out my swatch book and found colors to match our new In Colors!  I was like a kid in a candy store.  I couldn’t wait to get home and create!

I love all 4 of the new patterns in the 2019-2021 In Color 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper (though I will miss the polka dots!).  I cut 2 pieces of each using the Wood Crate Framelits.  The crates are so quick & easy to put together as it cuts and scores at the same time.  Just add adhesive to the flaps and bottom of one and adhere the two pieces together.  The new Scalloped Linen Ribbon (available June 4th) added a nice touch with a simple knot for a bow. Look at this beautiful ribbon!

These candle crates are perfect little thank you gifts for hostesses, teachers, hairdressers (or friends who spoil you with gifts and food following surgery). What a great idea for craft fairs! Here’s a close up of each of the crates with the new In Color Designer Series Paper patterns. (These same patterns will be available in 6 x 6 paper packs for each color family.)

These were so much fun to make I just couldn’t stop! Guess What?…The new Woven Threads Designer Series Paper (available June 4th) coordinates with the new In Colors!  Look at these fun mix of colors!

Hmmm….I think I like it better with the matching candles.  What about you?

So, are you convinced you need this die before it retires (or sells out)? Yesterday I shared some other ideas using the Wood Crate Framelits. If you missed that post, you can view it HERE.

More Retiring Favorites…3D Dies

I make a lot of cards and I also love to make 3D projects. Stampin’ Up! makes it easy to make fun 3D gifts with dies you can just cut and assemble. I’m sad to see two of my favorite 3D dies are retiring, the Window Box Thinlits and Wood Crate Framelits. Here’s a look at the dies and a few projects I’ve made with them.

Window Box Thinlits

Stampin Up Window Box Thinlits - visit juststampin.com for ideas and inspiration - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These boxes make a beautiful presentation! They are so versatile and look different every time! They’re great for candy treats and small gifts!  My favorite is probably the night light with a battery operated candle.  These are so much fun to make to coordinate with home decors. *Click on the image to see the original post with more photos, coordinating cards, a video, and directions.

Wood Crate Framelits

I love how these dies make great packaging for small treats and gifts. You can fit candy,  tea bags, seed packets, sticky note pads, ribbons, 3″ x 3″ cards, and more! This is another versatile die!

Retiring Favorites…Envelope Punch Board

This one I can’t believe! I can honestly say this is the best $20 I ever spent! I have made so many gifts, treat holders, custom envelopes, etc. using this simple tool! It has more than paid for itself and I will hold on to mine for dear life! I’ve had it for 6 years and it is so sturdy for something so lightweight. I’m actually considering getting another one in case anything happens to mine!  I love it that much!!!

Here’s a peek at some projects I’ve made with the envelope punch board. *Click on any image to see the original post with directions how to make.

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).

Stampin' Up! wreath builder template - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

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?

HOME for all Seasons…A Kit To Go!

I had the most wonderful long weekend! It was like a mini vacation! I hosted a three day stamping retreat at my home for some of my stamping friends! We had so much fun creating, sharing ideas, chatting and laughing up a storm!  I didn’t want the weekend to end! We didn’t even have to cook as my husband pampered us all weekend long with breakfast, lunch, and dinner!! I wish  I had taken lots of photos to share with you but we were having so much fun creating we didn’t even stop to take but a few pictures. However, I do have a fun 3D home decor project we made that I am offering as a Kit To Go!

I gifted everyone with a 5 x 7 photo frame and the supplies to make this interchangeable project.

Stampin Up friend card and gift idea using Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and Part of My Story Stamp Set - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Today I’m “Sale-A-Brating” friendship! One of the best things about being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is all the new friendships I have made over the past several years while sharing my joy of stamping!

My card and gift uses three of my favorite items from the Sale-A-Bration catalog…the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, the gorgeous Organdy Ribbon (from the combo pack), and an awesome sentiment stamp set, Part of My Story.  Here’s a peek at each of these items.   (Did I mention you can get all of these for FREE?!!)

I love to create cards and gifts to match.  This gift was quick & easy to put together for a special friend. Gather some rocks, tree branches, and some store bought moss and put it all in a jar. (The rocks hold the branches in place.)  I fussy cut the large butterflies from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and attached them to the branches with glue dots.  This gift will last much longer than a bouquet of flowers! Choose the butterflies that match your home decor or stamp your own using the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set from the Occasions catalog!

For the coordinating card I used another pattern from the Botancial Butterfly DSP for my background.  I used the Seasonal Layers Thinlits to cut the branch and then fussy cut another large butterfly from the DSP.  I punched the small butterfly from another pattern of the DSP using the Butterfly Duet Punch.  (I love how you can use the butterfly punch with the coordinating Butterfly Gala Stamp Set or the Designer Series Paper.  More bang for your buck!!)

I popped up the butterfly layer, the larger butterfly, and the sentiment layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Simple Sweet Valentine Treats

I love to make little treat holders and 3D projects (in addition to cards of course)! Today’s project was inspired by my friend Margie.  We got together for our monthly card club and she gave me a Hershey Kiss Treat holder she is making at the Senior Center for the Veterans Home. She knows how much I love to make little treat holders.  These treats are quick & easy to create!

Stampin Up Hershey kiss treat holder idea for Valentine's Day using Paper Pumpkin stamp set and All My Love Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I modified mine a little from Margie’s so I could maximize my Designer Series Paper. (Hers held 5 candy kisses and mine holds 4.) Here’s Margie’s that was my inspiration.

Stampin Up Hershey kiss treat holder idea for Valentine's Day using Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s all the details for mine.

  1. Cut Designer Series Paper 4 x 5 and score at 1 1/4, 2 1/2, and 3 3/4.
  2. Adhere Hershey Kisses with glue dots or Tear & Tape.
  3. Cut a belly band at 2 x 5 and loosely wrap around and adhere on the bottom.  *You want to make sure it will slide off easily.
  4. Wrap Braided Linen Trim around the belly band and tie a bow.

You can use DSP or cardstock for your holder. Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Paper is great quality and I love seeing the double sided design when you open and see inside.

I hope you enjoyed this simple sweet treat holder.  Grab some DSP and go make some! These would be quick & easy to create for your child’s classmates or coworkers, etc. I’m going to make some for the ladies at the post office who are always so friendly and helpful when I come in with my big bag of mail each month! (*Last month’s card kits have all been shipped and should be in your mailbox this week!)

Have a wonderful week!

Welcome to the Pals monthly blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here! January is all about making “Art from the Heart,” featuring projects for Valentines Day, Thinking of You, Get Well, or Sympathy. 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.

Stampin Up Large Letter Framelits and Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies Framed Art Gift Ideas for Valentine's Day, Wedding, or Anniversary - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love to make 3D projects to give as gifts. (Did you see the other framed projects I made for Christmas?) Today’s projects are quick & easy using the Large Letters Framelits and a 4 x 6 picture frame.

My first project makes a great Valentine or anniversary gift for the love of your life. Who will you give the “key to your heart”?

Stampin Up Large Letter Framelits and Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies Framed Art Gift Ideas for Valentine's Day, Wedding, or Anniversary - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I started with a piece of 4 x 6 All My Love Designer Series Paper.  The beautiful heart is from the Be Mine Stitched Framelit Dies which is part of the All My Love Suite in the new Occasions catalog.  I cut the heart and die from thick Whisper White cardstock and adhered them to the DSP.  I made a matching bow using Lovely Lipstick Ribbon and adhered it on top with a glue dot.  The finishing touch was adding the key from the Classic Garage Metal Elements.

After 33 years I’m giving this “key to my heart” to my husband!

I couldn’t wait to make my next project as soon as I saw the gorgeous Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper! My beautiful niece got married last summer and the dress she wore for her engagement photo matched the fresh fig floral vellum design.

I used another heart from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies and this one cuts out the heart in the center as well as the scalloped frame. I cut the photo and a piece of Fresh fig cardstock and adhered the photo inside the framed piece.

The soft elegant designs in the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper are perfect for weddings, anniversaries, and more. It is so easy to hand cut the vellum to use for accents like I did on the corner of my frame. Here’s a look at the other designs.  (It’s one of my favorite paper packs in the Occasions catalog!)

Sunday Showcase

Happy Sunday! I have a showcase of projects for you today! I haven’t posted much lately but, now that the holidays are behind us, I am looking forward to blogging more often! I am super excited about the offerings in the new Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration! I just found out that many of you have not received your catalogs yet! Oh my! I called Stampin’ Up! as I had them sent directly to you and it seems there has been a delay in delivery due to the holidays.  They ensured me that they were sent out the week of Dec. 10th but bulk mail takes a bit longer to arrive.  If you have shopped with me in the last 6 months, I sent you a catalog.  Please email me and let me know if you received your catalogs or not.  If your catalog has not arrived by Monday, a new one will be shipped to you! I sincerely apologize for the delay and please know that you can view the catalogs online while you wait for yours to arrive. Click on the catalog images on the right or in the drop down menu across the top. (If you are viewing this in your email, you may need to click on the blog title first to view online.) I will also include the links below.

The holidays just flew by and amid all the Christmas festivities, celebrations, and annual cookie exchange, I was busy creating! I made table favors, treat holders, cards, tags, gifts, and projects for family and friends.  Most went out the door before I even had time to photograph them or blog.  Here’s a few I did mange to snap a shot before I gifted.

Stampin Up Copper Tin and Joyous Noel treat holder idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love the Copper Tins!  I embellished with my favorite DSP and filled 16 of them with my homemade cinnamon candy!  If I showed up on Christmas Eve without this candy I do believe my family would send me packing!  LOL  After 25 years it has become a Christmas tradition!  I used the Joyous Noel DSP but you could easily use other patterns. These would be great to fill for Valentine’s Day!  I layered 2 7/8 x 2 7/8 pieces of DSP on 3 x 3 Copper Foil.  I was inspired by fellow Pal, Brian King  Here’s a few more  designs.

These tins can also be used to hold 3 x 3 note cards.  Check them out in the annual catalog and leave a comment below if you have another idea what you could gift in them.

My sisters are huge Scrabble players so I made each of them family frames with old tiles.  I like how it showcases our beautiful DSP.  You can easily change out the paper each season.  I chose DSP to match their home decor. I bet the new All My Love Designer Series Paper would look great as a background for Valentine’s Day!

I made several gift card holders for my nieces & nephews. This pop up gift card holder is really quick & easy to make.  Just change the DSP for different occasions!

Every year I make calendar cards and change them up a little.  The daisy punch and leaf punch made these quick & easy this year which was good because I made almost 50!

Every year I make 60-70 Christmas cards to send to family and friends. When we celebrated my daughter’s 21st birthday at Universal Studios this past year, I took the opportunity to snap a family photo. I thought this sentiment from the Snow is Glistening stamp set was perfect to go with our photo!

I hope you enjoyed my “homemade holiday” showcase.  If you have any questions about any of the projects feel free to email me or leave a comment below.  I’m looking forward to a new year of creating fun cards and projects!
