N is for Note

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ll be sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! I love the Stampin’ Up! Note Cards & Envelopes. These are the perfect size for a handwritten thank you card or to send a quick note to a friend.

Stampin’ Up! Note Cards & Envelopes come in sets of 20 in Whisper White, Very Vanilla and the NEW Scalloped with dainty scalloped edges on the cards and matching envelopes. The new Scalloped set has 5 each of 4 colors (Balmy Blue, Old Olive, light pink, or Terracotta Tile).  These are adorable and the best part is they are super economical!

I have been on a roll making note cards and have lots of ideas to share with you today starting with my new favorite, the Scalloped Note Cards & Envelopes.

Stampin'Up! A Little Lace Thinking of You Scalloped Note Card idea with Daisy punch - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Stampin'Up! A Little Lace Thank You Scalloped Note Card idea with Daisy punch - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used A Little Lace Stamp Set and stamped the background image in Early Espresso. The new medium daisy punch is the same size as the flower image.  (I just love how Stampin’ Up! coordinates products!) I had fun with the daisy punch and cut some from white cardstock, colored cardstock, designer series paper, and also stamped some using the Daisy Lane stamp set. Here’s a look at each of the different cards.

Stampin'Up! A Little Lace and Daisy Lane Scalloped Note Card idea with Daisy punch - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the Brights and In Color 6×6 Designer Series Paper Packs to cut the strips I adhered along the bottom. I accented the daisies with the Gold Gems and In Color Faceted Dots.

I got the Delightful Day stamp set for free at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage convention. I couldn’t wait to make the cards shown on page 34 in the annual catalog using the Scalloped Note Cards. Look how cute these cards look with the stamped flowers.

The White Stampin’ Chalk Marker and colored markers add a beautiful finishing touch! My daughter didn’t think they needed the strip of DSP at the bottom but I like how it highlights the scalloped edges.

One thing I like to do when I see a card I like is try to create something similar using different stamp sets and paper I have. Here’s another version of the cards above using a stamp set you won’t find in the annual catalog, Celebrate with Cake.

The hearts and flowers are from the Celebrate with Cake Stamp Set found in the Beginner Brochure. (Click on the link in the sidebar or at the bottom to view the brochure.) I used the Well Written Dies for the sentiments.

V is for Vinyl Stickers

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. The Painted Love Gold Vinyl stickers found on page 19 in the Occasions catalog are easy to miss.  They are hard to see in the catalog so here’s a photo in case you missed them too!

Stampin Up Painted Love God Vinyl Stickers - for inspiration and ordering visit www.juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These self-adhesive hearts, borders, and shapes in brilliant gold coordinate with images in the Sure Do Love You Stamp Set; however, they can easily be used with any stamp set or stand on their own. I have several cards (and a treat box) to share with you today using these stickers with the Petal Passion and True Gentleman Suites.

Stampin Up Petal Palette Wedding Card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The layout for this card was inspired by a card design from a fellow PAL, Nancy Gleason. I love using the ribbon to highlight the sentiment.  Both the sentiment and flower are from the Petal Palette stamp set.  I stamped the floral image in Black Memento ink and cut it out with the matching dies then fussy cut the flower apart to make it fit the card better. (I used the other piece from the flower on my next card.) I adhered the ribbon and sentiment banner on top of the vinyl sticker. I colored the flower with Stampin’ Blends and adhered it off to the side with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The base of my card is a Whisper White note card. The Powder Pink layer measures 4 5/8 x 3 1/8 and the Whisper White layer measures 4 1/2 x 3.

Stampin Up Petal Palette Wedding Card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My niece is getting married this summer and this is the perfect size card for a gift card.

My next card uses a different vinyl sticker and another sentiment from the Petal Palette stamp set. This sweet card could be used for several occasions (engagement, shower, new baby, anniversary, wedding, job promotion, etc.)

Stampin Up Petal Palette Wedding, Anniversary, or Baby Card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The flower image is the leftover piece from the card above. I embossed the card base with the Petal Pair Embossing folder and added my layered image on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Whisper White stamped layer measures 3 x 3 1/2 and is layered on a 3 1/4 x 3 3/4 piece of Calypso Coral. The flower is colored with Stampin’ Blends and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The ribbon is adhered with a glue dot on top of the vinyl sticker.  I added a matching sticker on the front of the envelope and embossed the flap.

The gold vinyl stickers are versatile to use so many different ways! They make it quick & easy to embellish cards and envelopes or add a special touch to a treat box.

Stampin Up Clear Tiny Treat Box with Painted Love Gold Vinyl Stickers and Ghirardelli Chocolate - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love these clear tiny treat boxes from Stampin’ Up! They make a quick & easy gift! I filled this one with 6 Ghirardelli chocolates, added a bow and a few vinyl stickers and I was done!  You could put a little jar of jam, a Yankee votive candle, or any other small item inside.

Here’s a card idea I got from Linda Heller that I made for my son and husband for Valentine’s Day using the vinyl stickers and True Gentleman Designer Series Paper.  (I don’t know why I didn’t share them before.)

Stampin Up True Gentleman card idea with Painted Love Gold Vinyl Stickers - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Either of these cards could be used for an anniversary or anytime you want to let someone know you love them. The True Gentleman Designer Series Paper make these cards perfect for the men in your life.  The sentiment I used on the inside is also from Petal Palette.  I love the sentiments in this stamp set and from the comments on my blog last week many of you do too!!

I is for Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today I’m sharing a bundle from the Occasions catalog that includes the Itty Bitty Punch Pack. I love punches and this adorable punch pack coordinates with the Fruit Basket Stamp Set. Here’s a look at the bundle.

Stampin Up Fruit Basket Bundle - For inspirational ideas and ordering visit my blog, www.juststampin.com -Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love fresh fruit!  We have several orchards nearby where you can pick your own apples in the fall as well as blueberries and strawberries in the spring. We also have a Peach Festival and other “fruit” events in the area so I knew I would get a lot of use out of this bundle. I found some smoothie mixes at the grocery store the other day and picked up a few for my my family and to give as little gifts. I made some fun “envelope cards” to hold the smoothie mixes.

Stampin Up Envelope Punch Board and Fruit Basket Bundle card ideas to hold treats - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

It’s so easy to make any size envelope using the Envelope Punch Board!  All the directions are right on the board (for 66 different sizes) so you never have to worry about what size paper you need or where to punch and score. I started by measuring my smoothie mix package which measured 4 1/2 x 6.  I checked the EPB (Envelope Punch Board) to see what size paper I needed (8 1/2 x 8 1/2) and where to start to punch & score (3 3/4).

After I punched and scored all sides I was ready to embellish. The Tutti-frutti 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper was perfect to go with my fruit smoothies. It is so easy to pick my cardstock colors from the DSP. I adhered my DSP to a layer of cardstock then popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the front of the envelope card. I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Ovals Framelits for the sentiment layers. I stamped the sentiment close to the bottom to leave room for my ribbon in the middle.  I stamped the fruit twice, once in each color, then punched them out with the Itty Bitty Fruit Punches. I wanted the add the leaf layer on top with a Glue Dot to give it a little dimension. I wrapped the ribbon around the envelope and tied a bow.  The ribbon keeps the envelope closed and just slides off to open. I added a stamped layer on the inside which is a hidden surprise under the smoothie mix.

This is a fun card to make even if you don’t have a drink mix to add.  I stamped and cut the sentiment “treat yourself” from the Picture Perfect Birthday set and attached that to the drink mix for an added touch.

Stampin Up Envelope Punch Board and Fruit Basket Bundle birthday card idea with a special treat - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My son has a birthday soon and he loves fresh pineapples. The smoothie mix calls for fresh fruit, water, and ice so I thought I would include a pineapple to go with it.  The tag was attached to the pineapple so rather than cut it off I made a tag to coordinate and adhered it on top.

I love making little gifts like this! The pineapple and card would be a nice welcome gift for a new neighbor or even a treat for Easter. Simply change the sentiment and you are good to go for any occasion.

My daughter will be home for spring break soon and she loves strawberry smoothies! This little treat will be waiting for her.

Stampin Up Envelope Punch Board and Fruit Basket Bundle envelope card idea to hold a special treat - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The strawberries were fun to stamp and punch. I used both Garden Green and Lemon Lime Twist ink for the stems. I love this gingham ribbon.  It is easy to work with and really makes the card pop! Here’a a photo showing the back of the envelope card.  You can see how the ribbon keeps the envelope closed.

This sentiment is perfect for my daughter! This set would also make a great hostess gift, thank you, or just a special treat for a friend or coworker. Who wouldn’t enjoy fresh strawberries and a handmade card?!

I have one more treat to share with you today.  My sister recently moved to Virginia and she is going to visit this weekend.  My family refers to our home as the local Bed & Breakfast. (My husband is a great cook!) I always like to leave little pillow gifts for overnight guests so while I was punching strawberries I made this quick Ghirardelli treat holder for my sister.

Stampin Up Fruit Basket Bundle candy treat holder idea made with the Envelope Punch Board - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

You can whip this treat holder in no time at all!  Start with a piece of 4 x 4 designer series paper. Use the Envelope Punch Board to punch and score at 2 inches on each side. Put your candy inside and tie close with ribbon and twine.  I used my circle punches to punch the layers for the sentiment and attached it to the ribbon with a Stampin’ Dimensional. Quick & easy!

I hope you like today’s projects. For more Envelope Punch Board ideas and a video click HERE.  Check out this video showcasing the Itty Bitty Punch Pack and the Fruit Basket Bundle I used in today’s projects.

So which do you prefer: Ghirardelli chocolate, strawberry smoothie, or pineapple smoothie? I would love to hear from you! FYI…I prefer milk chocolate to dark and would rather eat fresh fruit rather than put it in a drink.
