Z is for…zzzzzz

This is not the ending to my alphabet series I planned.  Sometimes life throws you a curve ball and all we can do is try to knock it out of the park! I had to have surgery yesterday and will be taking some time to rest and recuperate. I am hoping for a speedy recovery so I can get back to stamping and my sweet little 4 year old students. Til then, browse past projects and enjoy life!

Y is for Yummy in my Tummy

Welcome to my alphabet series showcasing some of the new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs. Today I am showcasing the Yummy in My Tummy Stamp Set featured on page 16 in the Occasions catalog. The stamp set coordinates with the Layering Circles Framelits Dies.  You can create simple projects with your child to embellish treats for friends or classmates.  These candy treat bags look yummy!

yummy-in-my-tummy-sample

Older kids may like a Rocher chocolate or EOS lip balm coming out of the monster tummy. I found this one on Pinterest. How cute would that be for a new”mom to be”!

img_9028

Have you heard what else is Yummy? Yesterday I promised I would share with you information on my “Just Stampin’ Kit Buffet“!  I love to spoil my customers and they have been enjoying my card buffet kits and 3D projects at classes and/or when they place an online order. I love to send out card kits and/or 3D treats for online orders placed through me using the monthly hostess code. My card kit and treat “buffet” is filled with cards as well as boxes, bags, tags, or other 3D projects. Everything is pre-cut and ready to assemble.  Starting this month I am offering my “Just Stampin’ Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet” TO GO. The monthly “Kit Buffet” costs $10 (plus shipping).

Here’s how you can reserve your seat at the table (and enjoy the feast):

Option #1  Email me (j.stark@myactv.net) with “Just Stampin’ Kit Buffet” in the subject line. Include your full name, mailing address, and email address.  I will send you a PayPal invoice. Orders need to be placed by February 15th in order to be mailed out at the end of the month.

Option #2  Get your kit buffet for FREE when you place an order for $50 or more through my online store using the monthly hostess code (K3VM6YBW). Kits are usually shipped out after the last day of the month.

Just Stampin’ Buffet TO GO Kits include:

  • Envelopes for non 3D projects

  • Ribbon and/or embellishments

Many people have commented that they would like to make certain projects but don’t have the die cuts, punches, embellishments, paper, etc. and can’t buy it all.  I get it!  My buffet kits are intended for you to be able to see and try out different products while being able to substitute different stamp sets.  Kits will include 3 cards and one 3D item. I will send you an email when your kit is shipped. It will include an attachment with the project samples, supplies, and directions. You can substitute different stamps and sentiments using what you have or copy my samples. The choice is up to you! Let’s face it, a buffet is intended to have something for everyone!  (I showcased a sneak peek at the 3D project yesterday.)  Here’s another teaser…Stampin’ Up! is coming out with 3 additional Sale-A-Bration products starting Feb. 21st.  Demonstrators were able to pre-order these items which included some new gorgeous Glimmer paper.  Mine is on the way and will be used for one of the cards in your kit this month.  Be the first to get your hands on some of this!

X is for the Window BoX Thinlits

Welcome to my alphabet series showcasing some of the new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs. Today I am showcasing the Window BoX Thinlits Dies featured on page 43 in the Occasions catalog. Move over Dragonfly Dreams…there’s a new favorite in town!!  I think you’ll agree once you see some of the possibilities that you can do with these dies…they are to “die” for!!

Stampin Up Window Box Thinlits ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Window Box Thinlits Dies make it easy to create these boxes using the Big Shot. Check out this video for some great tips and to see all the different ways to use the thinlits included in this set.

Donna shared lots of great ideas for boxes and cards in her video!  This set passed the versatility test for sure! I couldn’t stop making these boxes!   I have lots of photos to share with you today.

Stampin Up Window Box Thinlits ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

 

I love to make boxes and bags to coordinate with my cards. It makes a nice gift presentation. I made this box to go with a card I shared previously. You can find all the details for the card and how I made the tag insert (using the Timeless Tags Thinlits Dies) HERE.

Stampin Up Window Box Thinlits ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I started with a 6 x 11 piece of cardstock to cut my 2 dies.  I cut the ends flaps off one of the pieces and put the box together as shown in the video. I used tear & tape to secure my box.  I marked on the photo below the 7 places where you need to apply adhesive.

For this box, I cut a  1 1/2 x 12″ strip of black DSP from the Neutrals Collection.  I started in the back and just wrapped it around and pressed gently along the corners to create natural score lines.  Then I used Multipurpose Glue to adhere it to the box. As you can see this box holds a lot!

Stampin Up Window Box Thinlits ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

How would you like to receive this card kit and box?  Check back tomorrow for information on my “Just Stampin’ Kit Buffet” TO GO!

This next box is for the principal at my school.  She loves pink! She has a bowl of Hershey kisses on her desk and my students love to stop by on our way out the door at 11:30 every day. They each choose a kiss from the bowl to take home.  I thought it would be nice to fill this box with pink Hershey Kisses and have my class give it to her tomorrow for her birthday.

 

Stampin Up Window Box Thinlits ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I made this box the same starting with a piece of 6 x 11 Blushing Bride cardstock this time. I used the Precision Base Plate and cut the top of the box before adhering the box together. Then I cut a 3 3/4 x 4 piece of Falling in Love Designer Series Paper and trimmed it along the score lines using my paper snips. I  glued it on the inside of the lid.  I cut 1 1/2″ squares from the same DSP and adhered those on the 6 panels of the box. I attached a little piece of Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon to the tab with a glue dot to make it easy to pull to open. The flowers were punched from Sahara Sand and Blushing Bride cardstock using the Petite Petals Bunch. I added Basic Pearl Jewels to the center of each.

I finished it off with a Very Vanilla bow on top.  Even the inside looks so pretty!

 

The next box is for my niece who is getting married in two weeks.  I used her colors to go with the card I made previously. (You can click HERE to see how I made the card.)

Stampin Up Window Box Thinlits and wedding card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

For this box I wanted to use the same elements as the card so I embossed the 2 die pieces using the Falling Petals Embossing Folder before I put the box together.  I rotated the bottom piece before embossing (just like you would for one of the dies) so the hearts would be facing the right way when I put the box together.

Stampin Up Window Box Thinlits ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I heat embossed the sentiment using silver embossing powder and wrapped the box with the same silver ribbon as her card.

My last box (for now) is for our guest room.  I thought it would be so pretty to use it for a night light for guests.  I plan to make more of these as I think they are great little gifts to give! I used some retired Always Artichoke seam binding to wrap the box and tie a bow…it matched the throw pillow on the bed. You can still open the box without disturbing the ribbon to turn the battery light on and off.

Stampin Up Lighted Window Box Thinlits idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I was careful to remember to make sure my die was going the right way before I cut so the hearts would be facing up when I put the box together but with the ribbon wrapped around it you can’t even tell! (Keep that trick in mind if you mess up! LOL)

I love these “luminaries” and can’t wait to make more!  These would be gorgeous on a dinner table! You can lay them down or stand them up..the candle fits either way. I still have more of these boxes I want to make. I haven’t even used the stamp set and it has great sentiments that fit perfectly on the top or side of the box! There’s even tags and a sweet little flower! They can be used with the box or alone on cards or other projects!  You will definitely  be seeing more of this set in the future!  I’m going to make Valentine boxes for my family! So, which one is your favorite?  I’d love to hear from you!

W is for Watercolor Pencils

Welcome to my alphabet series showcasing some of the new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs.Today I am showcasing the Watercolor Pencils. This is my favorite new item in the Occasions catalog!  I was so excited when I saw them featured on page 24 and couldn’t wait to get my hands on these! I shared previously a couple of projects I made using these.  You can see those projects HERE or HERE .  For this sweet Valentine card I used the watercolor pencils with the blender pen to color a heart cut from a piece of Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper.  You can get this paper for Free with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration (Jan. 4 – March 31).

img_9038

My card base is 4 1/4 x 8 1/4 scored at 5 1/2.  The Designer Series Paper is from the Sending Love Paper Stack in the Occasions catalog. It is cut at 4 x 2 1/2.  I cut another piece at 2 1/4 x 6 to line the back of the envelope.

occasions-2017-dsp-sending-love-paper-stack

The inside panel is a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 red cardstock.  I used the heart framelits (retired) to cut the 4 different sized hearts but you could do the same thing with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits (I wish I had those!!!). I used the Sealed with Love Stamp Set to stamp the sentiments in real red ink. I popped the watercolored layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals and tucked the smaller heart behind. I added some Pearl Basic Jewels to the flowers and a white organza bow on top of the heart. This Valentine is ready to send!

img_9039

In case you missed the video showcasing all the wonderful ways you can use these watercolor pencils you can watch it here.

These watercolor pencils have been so popular that they are currently out of stock! Oh no! Stampin’ Up! is expecting to get a large shipment in mid February. I love the way these pencils are Stampin’ Up! colors so they coordinate with our other products!

V is for Vertical Garden Project Kit

Welcome to my alphabet series showcasing some of the new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs.Today I am showcasing the Vertical Garden Project Kit. Think outside the circle for your next wreath. Create a colorful block of flowers for your door, wall, or table.

vertical-garden-project-kit

Watch as Holly from the Home Office shares how to make this Vertical Garden Project.

I like that Stampin’ Up! offers kits for cards, scrapbooking, and home decor…something for everyone!  Look at everything that comes with the kit.

vertical-garden-project-kit-sample-2

The Vertical Garden Stamp Set that coordinates with this kit has two simple words…Welcome and Hello.

vertical-garden-stamp-set

This is a Two-Step Stampin’ set. Combine individual stamps to create the final image you want in the colors you want. These bold statements can be used for other projects and cards.

OK…Confession time…several years ago Stampin’ Up! had a kit to make a spring wreath with flowers and burlap ribbon.  Does anyone remember that one?  I put the kit together and hung it on my classroom door for the season.  When it was time to take it down I suppose I could have stored it for another year but I pulled the whole thing apart and reused the flowers and ribbon on cards. (tee hee)  I love to recycle and reuse and I loved that wide burlap ribbon! I know I am not alone here…who can relate? Here’s a funny story…I sent my nephew a birthday card and (unknown to me) my sister takes it and reuses it to send to my brother.  My brother doesn’t know I made the card and he reuses it and sends it to my daughter for her birthday.  I look at her card and think it looks familiar. (He had combined a sentiment from another card my mother sent him that I had also made). It just so happens that my sister was visiting when my daughter got the card.  Boy did we have a good laugh when the truth finally came out!  Now whenever I send my brother a card I always include an extra envelope and blank insert. LOL  It must have something to do with growing up with 6 kids and getting “hand me down” clothes, bicycles, etc. 🙂

So, in the spirit of recycling...Let’s have a Card Swap!  Who’s in?  Simply make a card and mail it to me along with a self-addressed stamped envelope. I will swap out the cards and send you a card someone else has shared. I will showcase all the cards on my blog. I am excited to see and share your creations! Mail your cards to me by February 22nd…that’s 3 weeks from today! Now, use what you have and go create something!

U is for Up and Away Thinlits Dies

Welcome to my alphabet series showcasing some of the new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs. Today I am showcasing the Up and Away Thinlits Dies and Lift Me Up Stamp Set.  I couldn’t stop playing with this bundle! Here’s 4 cards I made.

img_8951

My colors came from the Carried Away Designer Series Paper (Free with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration): Mint Macaron, Night of Navy, Peekaboo Peach, Watermelon Wonder, Smokey Slate, and Whisper White.

sab-carried-away-dsp

The DSP coordinates with the Lift Me Up Bundle. The DSP panels on all 4 cards measure the same, 3 1/4 x 3 1/4, with a layer of cardstock just  a smidge (1/8″) more.  There’s so many different sentiments in this set which work for birthdays, congratulations, thank you, thinking of you, and love. Here’s a look at the Lift Me Up Bundle.

lift-me-up-bundle

Check out this video showing all the uplifting possibilities!

I tried something different on each of my cards using the stamp set and dies.

img_8953 These two cards have stamped balloons which I then cut out with the framelits.  The one on the left I stamped twice, once on mint macaron and once on white.  I cut the top part of the mint macaron balloon and adhered it to the whisper white then popped it up on dimensionals.  I was trying to get the look of the balloons in the DSP.  The one on the left was easy to match the DSP by just stamping in different inks and running it through the Big Shot to cut it out.

img_8952

These 2 cards use the Thinlits Die with the Precision Base Plate.  I love this die!!! It’s easy to get different colors perfectly sized to fit with the dies in the set.  I used some DSP for the card on the left and cardstock for the card on the right.  I turned the dies over and pieced them together like a puzzle and held them together with Tear & Tape.  Then I used the Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere the hot air balloon.  I added some rhinestone jewels to one and  adhered the balloons with dimensionals to lift them up.

Here’s a look at each of the finished cards with matching envelopes.

T is for That’s the Tag

Welcome to my alphabet series showcasing some of the new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs. Today I am showcasing the Timeless Tags Thinlits Dies and That’s the Tag Stamp Set found on page 23 in the Occasions catalog.  I love to make my own tags for gifts but you can use these gorgeous tags for a card too!

img_8885

I seem to always be in need of thank you notes. That’s the Tag stamp set has a variety of sentiments so you could use it for just about anything. I love the coordinating Timeless Tags Thinlits Dies…so detailed!

thats-the-tag-stamp-set

timeless-tags-thinlits-dies

I started with my favorite for thank you notes…the Note Cards & Envelopes. I cut a strip 1 1/2 x 5 of black polka dots from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack and centered it on the note card.  The layers for the flower are So Saffron (3 x 3), Whisper White  (2 3/4 x 2 3/4), and Basic Black (3 1/8 x 3 1/8). I centered the flower die on the So Saffron and Basic Black and ran it through the Big Shot using the Precision Base Plate.  This made it so easy to remove the pieces from the detailed die.  I only needed to save the center piece from the So Saffron die as I just needed the shape cut so I could inset the black flower outline.  I like the way it looks like an inlaid puzzle. I also cut the leaves from the die using a scrap piece of Old Olive.

I adhered the white piece between the So Saffron and Basic Black and used the Fine-Tip Glue Pen to glue the flower die inside the So Saffron.  I glued the green leaves and center for the flower. I popped up the square layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  These are my colors! My bedroom walls are painted So Saffron and I have a black & white toile duvet. I love the contrast! (*Update:Click HERE to see a matching box to go with this card made using the Window Box Thinlits Dies.)

img_8886

Here’s a few more ideas. This is a great set for cards or to dress up gift packaging for all occasions!

S is for Stylish Stems

Welcome to my alphabet series showcasing some of the new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs. Today I am showcasing the Stylish Stems Framelits Dies and Special Reason Stamp Set featured on page 42 in the Occasions catalog.

img_8851

I love fun fold cards!  This pocket card is very simple to make. I started with a piece of 4 1/4 x 11 Sahara Sand as my card base.  I scored it at 1 1/4 and 5 1/2.  The fold is on the bottom and the 1 1/4 piece folds down on the front of the card. I didn’t adhere the sides as the ribbon holds it together.  I just wrapped it around the card and tied a simple knot. I cut a 2 x 4 1/4 piece of Falling in Love Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a layer of Sweet Sugarplum that measures 2 1/4 x 4 1/4.  The insert piece measures 3 1/2 x 5 (Very Vanilla) and 3 3/4 x 5 1/4 (Sweet Sugarplum). I stamped the sentiment in Sweet Sugarplum ink.

img_8852

Next, I stamped and cut my floral pieces and layered them on my card.

img_8853

The Stylish Stems Framelits are unique and very versatile.  Let me forewarn you… these were not on my original wish list as I felt I already had enough florals but, once I saw this video and all the different possibilities, I knew I had to add them to my collection.  I always say, it has to be versatile for me to invest and this one definitely fits that bill! It may just be my new favorite floral!  Check out this video (if you dare)! LOL

I love the projects Holly created in the video and I especially like how you can use the negative image from the die to create different projects.

I had so much fun playing and creating with the Stylish Stem Framelits. Here’s another card I made.  The card measurements are the same but this one is made with the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper, Silver Metallic Ribbon (from Sale-A-Bration), Silver Foil, and Silver Embossing Powder.

img_8865

Here’s how I layered the floral using the Stylish Stem Framelits and the Layering Circles Framelits.

img_8858

Which one do you prefer?

I made coordinating envelopes but forgot to photograph the second one. Oops!

Here’s another look at the projects Holly created in the video.So pretty!!!

R is for Ribbon…and a NEW Ribbon Share

Welcome to my alphabet series showcasing some of the new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs. Today I am showcasing the new ribbon. I love adding a touch of ribbon on my cards and projects! I used the silver metallic ribbon from the Sale-A-Bration catalog on my card today.

Stampin Up Valentine Day card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This ribbon is so soft and pliable. I like the silver with the black contrast and pop of melon mambo.  My card base is 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.  The Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper measures 1 3/4 x 4 1/4 and is layered on a piece of 2 x 4 1/4 melon mambo cardstock. I wrapped the ribbon around this layer before attaching it to the card base with fast fuse adhesive.  I stamped the sentiment in melon mambo ink and cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. (These framelits are back in stock if you missed them when they first debuted.) The sentiment is layered on melon mambo cut with the Layering Circles Framelits and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added the heart embellishment from the Brights Enamel Shapes. Quick & Easy!
