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!

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.

Special Edition…Just Stampin’ Holiday Kit Buffet To Go

I am offering a special “holiday edition” of my Just Stampin’ Kit Buffet To Go this month! Take the stress out of the holidays with some ready to go handmade projects to make your gift giving quick & easy! The special holiday edition of my kit buffet includes 4 projects… a gift card holder, a box, some tags, and a calendar card kit (you can keep for yourself or give as a gift)! *My calendar cards have been very popular! You can view some past calendar cards HERE. (I change them up a bit each year.)

Holiday “Kit Buffet” TO GO cost:  $12 (plus $3.00 shipping and handling)

I have been as busy as Santa’s elves designing these projects so I can get them out to you in time for the holidays. Here’s how you can reserve your seat at the holiday buffet table:

Email me (j.stark@myactv.net) with “Holiday Kit Buffet” in the subject line. Include your full name, mailing address, and email address.  I will send you a PayPal invoice. *You do not need a PayPal account in order to make your payment. Upon receiving my invoice, you may choose the credit card/debit card option instead of using a PayPal account. Instructions are given and the process for payment is simple.
Orders need to be placed by December 5th.

Just Stampin’ Buffet TO GO Kits include:

  • Pre-cut supplies for four projects (stamped images not included, in accordance with Stampin’ Up! policy)
  • Envelopes for non 3D projects
  • Pre-punched items and/or Big Shot items, such as die cuts and textured embossed
  • Ribbon and/or embellishments

My “Kit Buffet TO GO!” is intended to make it easy for you to be able to see and try out different products while being able to substitute different stamps you already have. You don’t have to worry about having coordinating designer series paper to go with the cardstock, the right color ribbon to match, or other embellishments…everything is in the kit!  You just need to stamp and adhere.

If you have ordered my card kit buffet before, I would love for you to leave a comment. Here’s what others have said about my past kits:

I love your kits. Your attention to detail is amazing. Instructions are fantastic and precise so that each item is quick and easy to put together. The pictures are a big plus in following the instructions.. Thank you so much for making these kits available to us.   Bernice P

Oh my goodness, thank you! I so enjoyed the last kit! Kept me occupied for a week! And this set is equally as beautiful! You do such thoughtful and intriguing projects! Please know that your talents and creativity are appreciated! (And your directions are a retired teacher’s dream!)  Nancy B.

I worked on your Card Buffet this afternoon. What a delightful way to

spend an afternoon! Your directions and photos really are EXCELLENT. I
think that part of the reason that you write such good instructions is
because you are programmed to teach little kids; it makes you really
good at spelling out every step. Well done!  ~M~

My kit arrived today and I’m so excited!  What great cards and I love the flexibility.  They’re beautiful.   Thanks, Susan

Your kit arrived yesterday and I’ve had great fun putting it together. You did a terrific job!  I love the way everything coordinates (which is my biggest challenge) and the kit was so well organized with the pieces for the box all together neatly in a glassine envelope.  Such attention to detail!  

Your instructions were impeccable.  Your pictures were beautiful and a big help in putting everything together. Obviously I am very pleased. And I will be ordering again if you have future kits.    Thank you so much,
Deborah M

Today I finally got around to doing the last Card Buffet.  I LOVED the 
fun fold card this time.  It is just too cool! Thanks for doing the Buffet.  Your ideas are so good and your printed directions are out of this world.  I know from experience that teaching little people makes you really, really good at specific directions.  You 
go, Girl!

I haven’t had much time to craft lately but I did these in a jiffy and they are sooo cute. Thank you for offering this for us!

*Please note… I can only accept a limited number of orders each month. I may reach my limit before the deadline. I will send out PayPal invoices on or before Dec. 5th. You will receive an email when your kit is shipped (on or before Dec. 10). It will include an attachment with the project samples, supplies, and directions. You can substitute different stamps and sentiments using what you have or just copy my samples. The choice is up to you!

Have a wonderful day!

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!

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.

Snow is Glistening Fun Fold Card

I am excited to share with you today’s card which uses some of the limited edition products from the just released Snowflake Showcase.Stampin Up Snow is Glistening Fun Fold Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp The star of this card is the copper embossed snowflake tree from the Snow is Glistening stamp set. I may have gone a little overboard heat embossing today but I just love the look and texture of the raised images. I even heat embossed the snowflake trinket!
Stampin Up Snow is Glistening Fun Fold heat embossed Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I love how this stamp set coordinates with the gorgeous Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalog. This DSP and the Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon I used on my card are from the Joyous Noel Suite (which is one of my favorites). I love the copper foil accents.

This easel fun fold is quick & easy to create! The Sahara Sand cardstock is cut at 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2.  I adhered a 2 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of DSP just below the score line. The tree is heat embossed on Merry Merlot cardstock that measures 2 1/2 x 4 and layered on Copper Foil that is 2 5/8 x 4 1/8.  The layered image is adhered to the DSP only. *Don’t adhere the top portion as you want it to stand up when opened.

I wrapped the elegant ribbon around the card and tied a bow. I secured the bow at the base of the tree with a glue dot. Here’s a look at the card when it’s closed.
Stampin Up Joyous Noel and Snow is Glistening Fun Fold heat embossed Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I love the inside of the card as much as the front! I cut the Merry die from the Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies and heat embossed the greeting.
Stampin Up Joyous Noel and Snow is Glistening Fun Fold heat embossed Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
You can heat emboss sentiments in any color by simply stamping the sentiment in Versamark first, then ink, then sprinkle with Clear Embossing Powder. I love to watch the magic happen with the Heat Tool.  *Don’t forget to use the embossing buddy on the cardstock before you stamp to prevent the embossing powder from sticking to other areas of your card. I used Merry Merlot ink for the greetings. I wanted the snowflake to be copper so I put a glue dot on the back and used my paper piercing tool to hold it as I stamped it in the Versamark, then dipped it in the Copper Embossing Powder and heat set it with the Heat Tool. The raised snowflake holds the easel card up.
Stampin Up Joyous Noel and Snow is Glistening Fun Fold heat embossed Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I usually play around make more than one card when I’m creating and this was no exception.  I decided to switch up the sentiments and try the Merry die at the bottom.
Stampin Up Joyous Noel, Merry Christmas to All, and Snow is Glistening Fun Fold heat embossed Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I think this card would look pretty on a mantle or side table.

You can use these kits to make more than just holiday cards and gifts! I love to use the contents and make alternative projects like the card below!

Stampin Up This Little Piggy and Paper Pumpkin Frights & Delights alternative birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp www.juststampin.com

This card reminds me of one of my favorite childhood books/movies, Charlotte’s Web. I saw this idea by Lisa Fast on the Paper Pumpkin Fan Club Facebook page. I knew this would be the perfect birthday card for my pig loving friend, Susan Itell. Lisa didn’t give any directions so I played around, changed it up a bit, and added the cute spider trinket from the Toil & Trouble Suite in the Holiday Catalog. Here’s the card details:

  • Line the opening of the treat bag at 4 1/2 and cut off the seam on the bottom.
  • Cut a 3 3/4 x 4 1/2 piece of whisper white cardstock and stamp sentiment. Slide the cardstock into the bag sleeve.  It fits snuggly.
  • Adhere the sleeve to a piece of 4 x 4 3/4 Black cardstock.
  • Adhere the black layer to a Blushing Bride card base cut 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.
  • Stamp the pig on Shimmery White cardstock and color with ink and an Aqua Painter.  Trim around the pig with Paper Snips and adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Add Baker’s Twine from the Paper Pumpkin kit around the top of the card and tie a bow. Attach the spider trinket with silver thread and a glue dot.

As Charlotte would say, “Teriffic!”

Here’s a few ideas from Pinterest and Facebook I shared at my Paper Pumpkin get together using the Back in Plaid kit. You can emboss the stocking (iron first and spray with hair spray), make baby booties (roll the cuff) or a winter cap (cut the heel off and add a candy treat inside).

Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin Back and Plaid embossed Christmas Stocking - Jeanie Stark StampinUp www.juststampin.com

Last year I filled the stockings with gift cards for friends and family.  It makes a quick & easy gift presentation.  I bought extra kits to use the stockings for table favors for our Christmas Eve dinner this year. I’m going to fill them with candy and questions.  It’s fun to have everyone go around the table and read their question and answer.  It really sparks some entertaining conversation!

Stampin Up Merry Christmas to All Money card idea with Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Christmas is absolutely my favorite holiday!  I love everything about the season and enjoy listening to Christmas carols as I decorate, bake, and make gifts. I have a lot of nieces and nephews and they always seem to appreciate cash or gift certificates so I am getting a head start this year.  I used my favorite Specialty Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalog, Joyous Noel.  I had fun using the coordinating elements from the suite and adding different ribbons and embellishments to make each one a little different.

Make A Difference with Personalized Place Cards

I love to entertain, especially over the holidays.  I’m not much of a cook (my husband does most of the cooking in our family) but, I am all about the presentation! I am getting a head start on some personalized place cards using the Make A Difference and Blended Seasons stamp sets.

Stampin Up Blended Seasons and Make A Difference Personalized Name Card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These are really fun to make! Yesterday I shared two Christmas cards I made with the holly from the Blended Seasons stamp set. (If you missed that post you can view it HERE.) While I had everything out on my desk, I cut a bunch of 2 x 3 Thick Whisper White cardstock and stamped the holly using Memento ink. We usually have between 20-25 people for Christmas Eve dinner (that’s just our immediate family) so I thought it would be a good idea to get a head start. I plan to take these with me when we take my daughter back to college next week and color them at the hotel at night. Adding the names with the Make A Difference stamp set is a breeze as it is a photopolymer stamp set so its easy to see where to stamp the letters.

Just think of all the possibilities with this stamp set…you can make any sentiment you want! Check out this short video as Brandi from the Stampin’ Up! home office shares some more ideas with this stamp set.

I have used candy canes on a holiday buffet table before to label different food items but I think the personalized place card is so special! I used a rubber band to hold the three candy canes together then covered it up with ribbon tied in a bow. Quick & easy!Stampin Up Blended Seasons and Make A Difference Personalized Name Card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Blended Seasons Stamp Set will be available August 1 -31 while supplies last.  It is a limited edition bundle that I know you will love and use year round! Plus Bonus Days is coming in August where you earn $5 coupons for every $50 you purchase! Get your wish list ready. I’ll share all the details next week.

I really enjoyed reading everyone’s comments yesterday about your Christmas cards.  I am amazed at how many some of you make!  WOW!  I make between 60-75 (all the same) to send to family and friends.  Of course I play around and make several cards each year until I decide on “the one”.  I always seem to find people to give the “extra” cards to each year.  You can never spread too much cheer!!

I promised to pick a random winner from the comments to send a little gift to along with one of yesterday’s cards. The winner is…….. #4 Mary Grunder!!!  Congratulations Mary!  Email me (j.stark@myactv.net) your address and I will put your goodies in the mail.  Thanks to all who left comments.  I have missed you!!!

Have a wonderful day!
