Just Add Color Guest Stamper

My daughter, Ariane, is on the board of her Hall Council at Georgia Tech. When she was home for spring break she wanted to make some thank you cards for the people who helped out throughout the year. Just Add Color Designer Series Paper was the perfect choice for these “housing” thank you cards.

Stampin Up thank you card idea using All Things Thanks stamp set and Just Add Color Specialty Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Ariane used Stampin’ Blends to color the different houses and then fussy cut each one out.  She loved using the new Stamparatus which made adding the sentiment a breeze!  Here’s a few photos.

The Whisper White note cards & envelopes made putting this project together a breeze.  The cards are prescored and ready to go. Ariane used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the houses to her cards.  Here’s a look at all 13 of her colorful cards!

April Paper Pumpkin…You Are My Anchor

I love the beach and all things nautical so you can see why this month’s Paper Pumpkin is one of my all time favorites! Check out this video showcasing this month’s kit!

Most of the time I use the contents of the kits and make my own cards but this month I could have easily followed the directions and made them exactly as shown in the kit and been thrilled with the result. The kit includes supplies for 20 cards and 4 boxes! I love the 3 x 3 note cards and gift boxes and I thought about keeping a set for me and giving the other 3 sets as gifts. The 3 x 3 cards are great for gift enclosures and/or notes to tuck in lunchboxes and briefcases; however, I decided to play around and turn some of them in to cards I could send in the mail.  I love the stamps and the dies included in this kit! I recommend Paper Pumpkin subscribers purchase the note cards & envelopes so they can continue to use the stamps sets and ink included in their kits to make more cards. They are a great deal for 20 cards and envelopes! Each month I send my Paper Pumpkin subscribers exclusive alternative projects ideas using the products in their kits.   I know there are others like me that may not want to make multiples of the same card. I like to change it up a little. Here is an adorable matchbook treat holder I made using just the supplies in the kit. Perfect for a lifesaver candy!

Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin You Are My Anchor Matchbook Treat Holder - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These are not only fun, they are quick & easy to make!

I cut 1″ off the 3 x 3 note card so it measured 2 x 6.  Then I turned and cut 3/8″ off one end so it measured 2 x 5 5/8. I lined it up on the score board so the 3″ score lined up at the 3″ mark and then I scored it at 1/2 and 3 1/4.

Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin You Are My Anchor Matchbook Treat Holder - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Fold the score lines and staple an individually wrapped lifesaver under the 1/2″ flap. Stamp the sentiment above in Island Indigo Ink and tuck in the top flap.  I followed the directions in the kit to decorate and adhere the life preserver using glue dots, twine, and mini stampin’ dimensionals. Adhere to the front and that’s all there is to it!

These little treats are great to have on hand to give out as you go through the drive thru to pick up your morning coffee or give to friends, hairdressers, “helpers” throughout the day, etc.

People often ask me about color combinations and where I get my inspiration. I get color inspiration everywhere (shopping for clothes, looking through catalogs and magazines, Home Decor items, etc. ); however, there is one thing that I keep in my craft room and use all the time…my cardstock color swatches.

X is for BoX in a Card

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. I have been wanting to make today’s fun card for awhile now.  My son’s birthday is next month and we will be celebrating a little early when we get together for Easter next weekend.  My husband and I like to give our children “an experience” for their birthday and this year I have a fun event planned, something I know he has not done before.  This boX in a card is perfect to put a clue to his gift.

Stampin Up Happy Birthday Thinlits and True Gentleman masculine birthday card and gift box idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper for his card and box.  I absolutely love the plaid and love that the whole paper pack has a masculine feel! This fun card is really much easier to create than it looks. The card base is a standard 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.  Next, you need to cut out the section for the box to sit.  Keep your card folded and with the fold at the top, line up the card with the right side at 1 inch and cut from the top down to 2 inches.  Then move the card so it is lined up at the 2 1/2 inch mark on the left side and cut from the top down to the 2 inch point.

Turn your card to the side and cut between the lines to remove the 2 inch square (which is actually 2 x 4 when you open it).

To make the box you need a 3 x 3 piece of coordinating cardstock and a 6 x 6 piece of DSP.  Score the DSP at 2 inches on all 4 sides.  Trim in on the score lines on two opposite sides.  Apply glue in the 4 corners,  bring the middle flaps up, the back flaps forward, and the front flaps go back last.  This way you have smooth corners on the front of your box.

Stampin Up True Gentleman Designer Series Paper to make gift box

To make the lid, score just under 1/2 inch on all 4 sides. Trim in on score lines on two opposite ends, notch the corners, and fold on the score lines.  Apply glue to the four corners and adhere to form the lid.

I added a 1 3/4 x 5 1/2 strip of coordinating DSP to a layer of Gold Foil and adhered it to the front of my card.  I cut the Happy Birthday Thinlits in Very Vanilla cardstock and did a little “surgery”‘ with my paper snips to separate the words before adhering to the card.

I added some Gold Natural Trim to the box before placing it in the card.  I just love how the box sits in the card!

Stampin Up Happy Birthday Thinlits and True Gentleman masculine birthday card and gift box idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This would be a great way to gift cash for someone or put a small (light) gift or candy inside.  I printed out the reservation for our adventure.  He is going to be so surprised as he is planning to take me out for dinner for my birthday and I am going to give this to him after dinner.  Everyone else is planning to meet at the event and surprise him.  He does not read my blog so as long as his cousins don’t slip and tell I should be able to pull this adventure off!

Stampin Up Happy Birthday Thinlits and True Gentleman masculine birthday card and gift box idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The sentiment I used on the inside is from Birthday Wit Stamp Set.  I had to use this one for my son! Several years ago he came home and I was wrapping a gift for my husband for Valentine’s Day.  My son wanted to know what it was and I told him a paper shredder.  His comment was , “Oh boy, nothing says I Love You like a paper shredder!”  (Just to let you know, my husband loved his paper shredder and actually wore it out from using it all the time!  He even went out it replaced it the same day it broke!  I’d say he loves it!!)

Stampin Up Happy Birthday Thinlits and True Gentleman masculine birthday card and gift box idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The sentiment is stamped on a 2 x 5 1/4 piece of Very Vanilla.  You could just as easily stamp a vertical stamp.

Stampin Up Happy Birthday Thinlits and True Gentleman masculine birthday card and gift box idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Did you notice any changes here?  I started out thinking I was going to use Tranquil Tide for my son’s card then decided I liked Night of Navy better with the DSP I chose.  Now I have my next card almost done!

Hope you have an eXcellent day!

More Birthday Wishes

img_1695

I absolutely LOVED reading the comments yesterday with stories of your birthday memories. Thank you so much for sharing!!!  It just reaffirms my feelings on “gifts”…it’s not what you get, it’s who you spend your time with! My husband and I like to give our children a “birthday experience” each year.  Fads come and go but memories last a lifetime! And when you give an experience, everyone enjoys the gift! Many family trips have been someone’s “gift”.

Speaking of gifts…Sharing handmade kindness is a gift from the heart! When someone takes the time to write a note inside a card and/or make a card, it is a “gift” in and of itself! I treasure the handwritten notes and cards from my kids over the years as well as those I’ve received from friends and family. I bet you do too! My friend Laura always sends me a beautiful letter in her card every year. We used to teach together in Virginia many years ago and she always shares a memory from our “adventures in teaching” that makes me smile.

Yesterday I shared some of the beautiful birthday cards I received.  If you missed that post you can see it HERE.  Today I have a few more cards (and a “special delivery”) to share with you from some of my very talented stamping friends…

Yesterday I shared some Tutti-Frutti pens.  I loved reading the comments and what you like to do with your friends and family. The random winner to receive one of the Tutti-Frutti pens is Karen H.   Here’s what she had to say:

Auuugh! Your post makes me so jealous that I won’t be joining all of you Stampin’ sisters in April! You are going to have so much fun! I adore these little pen holders – what a great idea. Just like the comment above me, I too have a long-time friend coming to visit the end of May. We’ll be up late with a glass of wine and our old high school photo albums, laughing and catching up after 40+ years!

Congratulations Karen! I will be sending one of the Tutti-Frutti pens your way.

Many thanks to all who commented and stop by to visit each day. I am thankful to have you in my stamping circle!

Have a wonderful day!

T is for Tutti-Frutti Treats

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today it is all about family, friends, and fruit with the Tutti -frutti Suite.

Growing up I would go blueberry picking with my dad and 5 siblings.  My dad would tie buckets around our waste so both hands were free for faster picking! My mom would  bake homemade pie and all kinds of blueberry treats. YUM! I’m not much of a pie baker but I do enjoy making homemade breads and jam.  Strawberry season will be here before you know it and I love to make strawberry jam! The Tutti-Frutti suite makes it quick & easy to create tags and gift enclosures to go with homemade goodies (or store bought favorites)!

Stampin Up Tutti-frutti hello friend note card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This little gift card is for Sister Corda’s roommate.  After Sister Corda passed away, I have been spending Monday evenings with her roommate.  We chat, have dinner together, and watch a few episodes of Longmire on Netflix. Sister Al loves blueberry jam and enjoys some with her bagel every morning.  I bought some of my favorite Stonewall Kitchen Wild Maine Blueberry Jam to give to her.

Stampin Up Tutti-frutti hello friend 3 x 3 note card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love to make note cards to go with gifts. To make this simple note card start with a 3 x 6 piece of cardstock and score it at 3″.  I added a layer of Night of Navy cardstock that is a 2 3/4″ square. Then I added a piece of  2 x 2 5/8  DSP and some gingham ribbon. The sentiment is from the Fruit Basket Stamp Set, cut out with the new 1 1/8 Scallop Circle Punch, and layered on a 1 1/4 punched Night of Navy circle. I popped the sentiment up with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  Quick & easy!

Here’s a quick 1 minute video showing how to make another quick & easy 3 x 3 card using products from the Tutti-frutti Suite!

I will be heading to Hartford, Connecticut in two weeks for Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage convention. I can’t wait to get together with “my people”!  Six of us rented a historic home just outside of Hartford so we could be together for a little extended vacation.  We are planning to stamp, shop, sightsee, and I’m sure chat until the wee hours of the morning.  It is always so much fun when we get together! I made these little gifts using the Tutti-frutti Designer Series Paper for my “Stampin’ Sisters”.

Stampin Up Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I got this idea from Sam Donald (Pootles.co.uk).  I changed mine up a bit and used coordinating DSP rather than washi tape. I bought several different fruit pens and had so much fun making these that I just couldn’t stop!  I wanted to try different color combinations and ribbons. I ordered the fruit pens from Amazon.  I love the way they coordinate with our DSP! I love the pens with the bauble fruit charms (above) but I also love the way the DSP and ribbon pictured below can serve double duty as a  bookmark. Two gifts in one!

Stampin Up Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper bookmark & gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Stampin Up Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper bookmark & gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love how they turned out! For the first set of pens (with the charms) I used a smidge smaller than 2 x 8 cardstock, 1 3/4 x 6 DSP  in the center, and (2) 1 3/4 x 3/4 strips on the top and bottom. These fit in Stampin’ Up!’s  2 x 8 Cellophane Bags.  You get 50 sturdy bags for just $3.00!

Stampin Up Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used a sightly smaller piece of cardstock for the other pens (a smidge less than 2 x 7) and cut 3/4″ off the top of the cellophane bags.  The DSP measures the same. I used the 1/4″ hole punch to punch an opening for the ribbon. I fussy cut the fruit from the DSP.  (You could stamp and punch fruit using the Fruit Basket stamp set and Itty Bitty Punch Pack.) I used glue dots to adhere the fruit pieces to the cellophane bags.

Stampin Up Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper bookmark & gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Would you like to receive one of these Tutti-Frutti pens? I am sending one to everyone who places an online order of $50 or more with me in March.  It’s my “party favor” and will be included in my birthday party thank you kit for ordering this month! I appreciate each and every order and love sending little thank you gifts and card kits to show my appreciation. I will also be giving one away to a random winner on my blog.  Leave a comment sharing something you enjoy doing with friends or family members and you could be the lucky winner.

Yesterday I showcased all 7 suites from the Occasions catalog and asked my readers to share which one was their favorite suite.  If you missed that post you can view it HERE. From the comments it looks like Petal Passion is the most popular for it’s versatility and great sentiments!  I enjoyed reading all the wonderful comments about the other suites as well.  Like me, some of you liked several and have a hard time choosing a favorite!

I have been making so many projects lately using the products in the Tutti-Frutti Suite! You can view previous projects I have shared HERE or HERE.

I am the designer for this week’s Tic Tac Toe challenge and due to my fractured elbow I was disappointed I wouldn’t be able to create a project this week! So I went with Plan B and with my husband’s help, made this little valentine treat to send to our daughter.

Stampin Up Mini Gable Box Valentine treat idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s this week’s challenge board…

tttc#34

This quick & easy treat box actually made Tic Tac Toe 3 different ways: down the middle, across the middle, and diagonal. This project uses some of the new items from the Occasions catalog. The Silver Mini Gable Box (found on page 13) is embossed with the floral design from the new Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folders (page 23).  My husband is not a craft person but he will do anything for me!  Definitely a keeper!

The box is easy to put together. The love die cut from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits is cut from Berry Burst cardstock and adhered using a few glue dots.  The sentiment is from the January Paper Pumpkin kit and goes perfect with the Hershey Chocolate Hugs & Kisses! The sentiment is stamped in Berry Burst ink on Whisper White cardstock and punched on both ends with the Triple Banner Punch. A couple of silver hearts from the Metallic Enamel Shapes and a simple bow with the new Berry Burst Metallic-Edge Ribbon was all this box needed.  Well, almost all…it’s filled it with chocolate Hugs & Kisses!  I wish I could deliver them in person!

See how simple it is to create using elements from the challenge board?! I would really love for you to play along this week with my ABC challenge board. Just pick 3 in a row and create!  I have to live vicariously through your stamping creations until I regain the strength and mobility in my arm!

Here’s the Tic Tac Toe Challenge Rules:

  1. Create a new project. You can create any project and use any elements/supplies as long as it fits within the three elements (in a row, column or diagonal) of your choosing from the tic tac toe challenge board that is set for the current challenge.
  2. You may enter up to a maximum of 3 times as long as the creations are new.
  3. If you have a blog, you should include the challenge graphic in your post and link back to our challenge.
  4. If you are posting in a gallery (like SplitCoast, Pinterest, or any other social media platform), make sure you mention our challenge with a link back to the challenge and use the hashtag #tictactoechallenge and the hashtag found on the challenge (eg: #tttc001)
  5. Your submission link should be a direct link to your project post, not a general link to your blog, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest or other gallery account.  Incorrect links are not eligible for Designers’ Picks, and may be deleted.
  6. We want to leave you comments, but if you are linking your project to a closed group or a site that requires us to register, we may not be able to! Please be sure to post on an open forum so we can leave comments on your wonderful cards. No CAPTCHAs please! Please remember to turn off word verification.
  7. All submissions are due Tuesday at noon CST – that’s when the InLinkz will close. Winners will be announced on Wednesday. New challenges go live every Thursday.
  8. Post your project using the InLinkz Tool, which can be found below the current challenge.

Coloring with Stampin’ Blends for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #30

It’s time for another Tic Tac Toe Challenge! How would YOU like to be a guest designer? Simply play along and each week someone will be chosen to be a future guest designer.  Here’s this week’s challenge board…

TTTC board #30

The “No Sentiment” box popped out at me.  I rarely make a card without a sentiment on the front so I thought I would challenge myself to use that element this week. I created a gift set of 3 x 3 cards.

I love to color (which may be one reason why I teach Pre K)!  I have shared many different coloring techniques on my blog (using aqua painters, blender pens, sponge daubers, etc.) For this project I used my Stampin’ Blends and the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper.

To order the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper and other Stampin Up products, visit my blog www.juststampin.com

The black and white designs are great on their own but I really like how you can customize the designs.  The flowers are so vibrant using the Stampin’ Blends and trust me, it is so easy to do…the markers do the work for you!

I am thrilled the pizza boxes from the Holiday Catalog made it on Carryover List. They are perfect for 3 x 3 cards and envelopes or food items.

The DSP is 3 x 3 layered on a 3 1/4 Black square. I covered the top of the box with a 3 1/2 square of Rich Razzleberry and covered the sides with 1 x 3 1/2 strips in the same color. I added the gorgeous Whisper White Metallic Edge Ribbon as the finishing touch!  You could easily give the set of cards in black & white and let the recipient color them or enjoy some “coloring therapy” and give the set complete as I have done. Either way I think it makes a nice little gift.  I love having note cards on hand for any occasion and these fit the bill.  Stamp a sentiment inside or write a personalized note.
Here’s a tip for when you color with the Stampin’ Blends…put a piece of scrap paper under the image you are coloring becasue the color will bleed through.  You will want to adhere your colored piece to another layer. I cut my DSP in to 3 x 3 sqaures for this project.  I colored then adhered them on to 3 x 6 Thick Whisper White Cardstock (scored at 3″).  I hope this project inspires you to find time to create some handmade kindness!
You can purchase any of the products used to make today’s project from my online store or click on the images below for more information.  I invested in all the Stampin’ Blends and realize that can be a bit pricey starting out; however, I suggest you break it up over the next 3 months during Sale-A-Bration (Jan. 3 – Mar. 31) and earn a FREE item each time (with a qualifying purchase)!
