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!

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.

Time to Sale-A-Brate Friendship with the Pals Blog Hop

Blog Hop Badge February 2019

Welcome to the Pals’ February blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here because it’s “Time to Sale-A-Brate”! Our Design Team created projects using Sale-A-Bration items 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 the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

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.

The sentiment from Part of My Story can be used for many occasions! (Check back tomorrow to see how I used it for my Valentine’s Day cards! Make sure you subscribe to my blog to get an email each time I post.)

The finishing touch was adding the beautiful bow made with the organdy ribbon!  The best part about this project is I got the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack, and Part of My Story Stamp Set for FREE! You can too with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration (now through March 31st).

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.
  5. Stamp sentiment on 1/2″ Whisper White and trim to make a banner. (I love this sentiment and font from my January Paper Pumpkin kit!)
  6. Adhere sentiment to 1/2″ Crumb Cake banner and attach to belly band with a glue dot.

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.

Here’s a peek at the side view.

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!

Art from the Heart for the Pals Blog Hop

2019 January From The Heart graphic for BLog Hop

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.

Stampin Up Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper is the perfect background for framed art for wedding or anniversary - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

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!

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!

Shine A Light On Peace for the Pals Blog Hop

December All that Sparkles and Shines post graphic

Welcome to the Pals monthly blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here! December is time for glitz and bling with  “All that Sparkles & Shines”. Today we feature projects that sparkle or shine. Maybe even a little of both.

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 live in Maryland not far from the Antietam National Battlefield. One of our family traditions is to visit the battlefield the first weekend in December for their Annual Memorial Illumination. It is the largest memorial illumination in all of North America and this year marked their 30th anniversary. Each luminary (over 23,000) represents a soldier’s sacrifice during the bloodiest one-day battle of the Civil War. (I’m a bit of a history buff.) There are no words adequate to describe the event…to see these hallowed grounds lit up is unbelievably surreal!

Antietam National Battlefield

I was inspired by my recent visit to create this set of luminaries.

Stampin Up Large Letter Framelits Peace Luminaries for Christmas Home decor idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These are simple to make. For each one I cut a 5 x 8 1/4 piece of Garden Green cardstock and scored each at 2, 4, 6, and 8. I used the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies (available Jan. 3rd in the Occasions Catalog) to cut the shape out for my light to shine through. I was so excited when I saw these dies in the new catalog! You get 13 different sizes which feature stitching inside and outside the frame! How cool is that?!

Stampin Up Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I cut my vellum at 1 7/8 x 3 1/2 and adhered it to the back with glue dots. I cut the letters from the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper using the Large Letter Framelits and adhered these to the vellum. I used Tear & Tape along the 1/4 edge to secure together.

A battery operated tealight fits inside for a nice glow. I added some Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon to tie it together for that “sparkle and shine”.

Stampin Up Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies and Large Letter Framelits Peace Luminaries for Christmas Home decor idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

You can make these to give as a gift or decorate your mantle or bookcase. These make the perfect night lite for a child’s bedroom (you could spell out the child’s name) or any room (use any die).

Here’s a few more photos of the Illumination.

I am thankful for our men and women in the Armed Forces throughout the world.  My thoughts and prayers are with those who lost their lives, so the world may someday enjoy world peace.

Thanksgiving Favors

Happy Thanksgiving! I am thankful for you and appreciate that you take the time to stop by!  I love to create and share with you! I enjoy making 3D projects and always love to have little table favors for family and friends for holidays and other special occasions. I made these for my Thanksgiving  table favors this year.

Stampin Up Pillow Boxes and Painted Harvest table favor idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Stampin’ Up! Pillow Boxes are the perfect size for gift cards, small gifts, notes, candy treats, and favors! They are so versatile for year round use! You get 10 boxes for just $5 (which doesn’t break the bank)! Every year I’ve filled table favors with my Blessings Mix (*see recipe below) but I thought I would change it up this year and use an M&M poem I found.  My daughter is a math major and I know she will appreciate one of the verses on this one.

Takeout Treats For Any Occasion

I love to make 3D Projects and these treat boxes are quick & easy to make and just stinkin’ adorable! I used the Takeout Treats Thinlits (and the leaf from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits) for a simple fall/Thanksgiving treat. I made these for card club yesterday in less than an hour before the event!

The caramel Hershey Kisses were the perfect choice to fill these boxes for a “sweet” color coordinated treat!

I am not surprised that this die has been a huge seller and is on the low inventory list I shared the other day. (If you missed that post, click HERE.) If you like to make fun projects that are quick & easy, you need this set! Get it before it’s sold out and gone for good!

Stampin Up Takeout Thinlits Dies - visit juststampin.com for ideas and ordering - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
You just need a half sheet of cardstock to cut 2 of the box die to make the treat holder. I love that it cuts and scores all at once so you just fold, add adhesive, and decorate. The coordinating stamp set is so versatile with fun sentiments and imagery for treats you can create for any occasion.

A Magical Birthday

Stampin Up Magical Mermaid and Star of Light 3 x 3 heat embossed birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My daughter is turning 21 next week! We like to give birthday “experiences” and this year we surprised her with an early celebration.  We sent her the confirmation for her plane ticket for Fall break however; instead of a ticket to fly home, we sent her a ticket to Orlando!  She did not know that was her destination until she went online to check in 24 hours in advance and thought her dad had messed up the flight.  LOL  Needless to say, she was thrilled when she found out she was going to Universal Studios (the Wizarding World of Harry Potter) and we would be meeting her there.  We are HUGE Harry Potter fans and I can still remember reading aloud all seven books to her. Our son lives in Massachusetts and he took off from work and flew in to surprise her. We had a wonderful time!

We had a few other surprises for her too!
Stampin Up Broadway Bound 21st birthday gift card holder and mini pizza box game idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I found a “golden snitch” bracelet and made a special holder (which could also be used to hold a gift card).
Stampin Up Detailed With Love and Broadway Bound 21st birthday gift card holder - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love that you pull the ribbon to reveal the gift/card inside.

Details:
4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Gold Foil scored at 1 1/2 and 4. Punch a hole in the center using 1/4″ circle punch. Adhere with tear & tape on back.
Cut ~12″ ribbon and loop around cardstock (Gold Glimmer Paper) and slide inside.
Insert ribbon through hole and tie a knot.
Decorate front as desired.  I used Broadway Bound DSP and Gold Metallic Ribbon.
Pull ribbon to view/open.

We love to play family games and I found this fun idea on Pinterest.
Stampin Up mini pizza box Harry Potter family game and gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I printed the cards on Whisper White cardstock and cut them out.  They were the perfect size to fit in a Stampin’ Up! Mini Pizza Box!

HOLIDAY CATALOG ITEMS NO LONGER AVAILABLE IN NORTH AMERICA

Stampin’ Up! posted the following update:

Sales for the following products have exceeded our forecast and are continuing strong, resulting in a large number of backorders. Because backorders are so costly, we have made the decision to shut these items off effective immediately. Since these products cannot be sent from the manufacturer in time for the holidays, these item numbers will not be reactivated.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you and/or your customers. In order to provide you with another holiday-themed option, we’ve decided to make our promotional Dashing Along Designer Series Paper (item 149903) available for sale at ($11.00). This beautiful, 12″ x 12″ traditional Christmas paper has a festive, eclectic feel and is perfect for layering. Coordinating colors are Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, and Whisper White.

Though we don’t yet have a fulfillment date, all backorders for Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper, Festive Farmhouse Elements, and Santa’s Workshop Enamel Elements will be filled as soon as possible.
