My newest ABC Series, ABC Cards, will showcase cards for many different occasions. Even though I will focus on a different occasion for each letter, most of these cards could work for other occasions simply by changing the sentiment or Designer Series Paper.

If you find a card design/layout that you like, simply change it to make it work for what you want/need.  So far I have shared card ideas for anniversary and birthday. (*You can click on the images if you want to see the original posts for each.)

B is for Birthday

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Monday I shared a couple of Anniversary card ideas. (If you missed that post, you can view it HERE.) I’m looking forward to sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! Today is all about Birthday cards! Everyone has a birthday so we always need birthday cards! Today’s card features a fun card idea inspired from a sketch design.

Stampin' Up! Picture Perfect Birthday and Touches of Texture birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

When I first started stamping I would copy sketch designs and use whatever paper and stamps I had to make a card.  This is one of those sketches I have been wanting to do. I blended old with new for this card.  Both stamps sets I used, Picture Perfect Birthday and Touches of Texture, are retiring June 3rd. (Inventory is low.) So sad to see these go!  I have used this sentiment many times!  It works great for the front of a card or on the inside.  Check out the other great sentiments in this set.

The touches of Texture Stamp set is another beauty and so versatile.  These images can be used for many different occasion cards. I colored the flowers and dragonfly using my Stampin’ Blends. So quick & easy to do!

Stampin Up Touches of Texture Stamp Set - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I thought the flowers from Touches of Texture coordinated well with the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  I love this paper pack!

I love homemade cards and gifts! My daughter has been home for spring break this week and she surprised me with a gift from the heart that took me on a trip down Memory Lane! We went out for my birthday dinner last night and she couldn’t wait to give me these.

Birthday gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

She reached out to my friends and family and asked them to email her a favorite happy or funny memory they have with me. It was pure joy and laughter as I read these messages and stories from friends and family.  My heart is so full!  I feel so blessed!

I hope this inspires you to make someone smile today. Reach out to someone you may not have seen in awhile, tell someone what you love about them, send someone a card today!

Hoppy Birthday

Stampin Up So Hoppy Together birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I’m still making birthday cards!  March is my busiest month for birthdays!  I’m not a fan of real frogs (brings back memories of summers camping on Cape Cod when the boys would throw frogs in our inflatable boat); however, this little guy is stinkin’ adorable! I colored “Hoppy” with Stampin’ Blends and cut him out with the coordinating dies. (*The dies sold out fast but you can fussy cut him if you don’t have the dies). I popped him up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the “reed” (from the Home to Roost Stamp Set) on Whisper White cardstock then decided I wanted to add some color.  I squeezed some Pool Party ink in the lid of the pad and added several drops of water from my Aqua Painter. Then I did a quick wash on the card. I like the subtle color. Normally I would have used Shimmery White cardstock if I was going to watercolor but this worked fine.  It did curl a little but I just used extra adhesive on the back so it would lay flat.

The stamped sentiment comes from the So Hoppy Together Stamp Set and the new More Than Words Stamp Set. Both of these stamp sets are only available until March 31st (while supplies last). You can see all the products I used in the list below.  Simply click on any of the images and you’ll be directed to my online store.  Here’s the details and measurements.

  • Card Base is Thick Whisper White that measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.
  • Layer 1 is 3 3/4 x 5 Powder Pink.
  • Layer 2 (with stamped and die cut images) measures 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.
  • Stamp grass with Lemon Lime Twist ink.
  • Watercolor wash the background with Pool Party ink using Aqua Painter.
  • Stamp sentiment and frog in Memento Black ink. Cut Hoppy from scrap piece and adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Color Frog with Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Combo.
  • Cut frog, flowers, and lily pad using Hop Around Framelits Dies (or fussy cut).
  • Adhere die cut pieces. Pop Frog up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Decorate the envelope flap with a piece of Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper.

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.

I can’t decide which card I like better. Do you have a preference?

Celebrating Spring Birthdays for the Pals Blog Hop

Pals Blog Hop badge for march 2019Welcome to the Pals’ March Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because “Spring has Sprung” – at least on our blog hop if not outside! Our Design Team created beautiful projects 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 full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I’m excited to share a fun technique to make a simple spring wreath birthday card.

Stampin Up Accented Blooms wreath birthday card idea using the Stamparatus, Perennial Birthday stamp set and Lovely Floral Embossing Folder - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Several friends and family members have birthdays this month so I need quite a few birthday cards. The Stamparatus makes it quick & easy to mass produce!  I attended a wreath builder workshop a few weeks ago (with Gina K of Gina K Designs) and absolutely fell in love with the wreath builder technique. I decided to make my own wreath builder template. I used the Stampin’ Up! Grid Paper and Layering Squares Framelits to cut the template.  I started with a piece of 5 x 5 grid paper and used the lines to help me line up the die.  I used the largest square and cut it twice. First I cut a straight square then I centered the die on top in a diamond and cut it again. I can use this template over and over again!

Stampin Up wreath builder template for the Stamparatus using the Layering Squares Framelits - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the same Layering Square die to cut my Whisper White cardstock to stamp my wreath design.  I placed the square piece in my template. Next, I placed the small flower from the Accented Blooms stamp set on the cardstock piece where I wanted it and closed the Stamparatus so it stuck to the plate.

Stampin Up wreath builder template for the Stamparatus - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I prefer to use the ink spots when I use the Stamparatus.  I have most colors from the Paper Pumpkin kits; however, if you don’t have them you can use the classic stamp pads or purchase Uninked Stampin’ Spots from my online store and use ink refills to make whatever colors you want.  I bought a few Uninked Spots for some missing colors I needed and it’s simple to do plus they save space and $.  Win! Win!

Stampin Up wreath builder template for the Stamparatus - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

To make the wreath just turn the paper to the right and secure in the template, stamp, and repeat all the way around (going from square to diamond).

Stampin Up wreath builder template for the Stamparatus - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I added the sentiment by placing the stamp in the center of the wreath then closed the second plate on top of the Stamparatus to secure it.  I inked it up and closed the plate. I love having the option to use both plates! I don’t have to remove my stamps so I’ll be ready to make more wreaths quick & easy without having to place the stamp again.  I know it’s all lined up and good to go!

Stampin Up wreath builder template for the Stamparatus - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Another great feature of the Stamparatus is you can flip the plate over and use both sides! And that’s exactly what I did to add the sentiment for the inside.

Stampin Up wreath builder template for the Stamparatus - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used my Stampin’ Blends to color the flowers and leaves.

Stampin Up Perennail Birthday card idea using the wreath builder technique and the Accented Blooms stamp set with the Stamparatus - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Finishing the card was simple. My card base is 4 1/4 x 11 Night of Navy scored at 5 1/2 for a side fold card. The Daffodil Delight layer measures 4 x 5 1/4 and is embossed with the Lovely Floral Embossing Folder. I wrapped Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon around the embossed layer and secured it on the back before adhering it to the card base.  I tied a simple knot on top with another piece of ribbon.  The wreath is layered with a Navy scallop square and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I embossed the envelope to coordinate. This is one of my favorite color combinations.

Check back tomorrow to see how I changed it up a bit when I made a little boo boo! Often I like  my “oops!” just as much!  Many different stamps will work to make wreath designs.  You can bet I will be making more! See what you have and give it a try. I’ve listed the product links below. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, April 10, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share their “Families First” projects. Don’t miss the fun!

Happy Birthday to my sweet daughter, Ariane.  I can’t believe she is 21 years old today!  Last week I shared her surprise birthday celebration. If you missed that post you can view it HERE.

I love the 6 x 6 DSP packs!  They are the perfect size to decorate a card and envelope.  I first cut a 2 x 6 piece to use on the flap of my envelope.  Then I cut the 4 x 6 piece to 4 x 5 1/4 to layer on the front of my card.  I used the leftover 3/4 x 4 piece on the inside of my card.  I love that there is no waste!

Stampin Up Dandelion Wishes birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I stamped the image and sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I punched the sentiment using the Pretty Label Punch and layered it with a 1 3/4 Circle in Highland Heather. I popped the sentiment and layered dandelion image using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some Basic Rhinestone Jewels for a little bling!

A Champion Birthday

Today is my husband’s birthday. He is a huge sports fan! His favorite hockey team is the Washington Capitals and he has waited his whole life for them to win the Stanley Cup Championship! Needless to say he was thrilled last June! For his birthday I bought him tickets to a Caps game and a commemorative bottle of bubbly. I always like to make my cards match the gift; however, I didn’t have any hockey related stamps. I played around and decided to make my own hockey sticks.
Stampin Up Perennial Birthday hockey card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I always loved origami as a kid and though this really doesn’t qualify (it’s held together with glue dots! LOL), it does the trick.  I used the Perennial Birthday stamp set for the simple sentiment and the team colors for my card.
Stampin Up Labels to Love birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
The inside sentiment is from Labels to Love. (The die is retired.)

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!
