Color & Contour To Make You Smile

I’m thrilled to be stamping again! I’m still unpacking and making progress getting my craft room organized but I just had to take time out to play with some stamps and ink! I grabbed the 2020-2022 In Colors and the Color & Contour Stamp Set to create these cards.

Stampin' Up! In Your Words with Color & Contour In Color Card ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I love this sentiment from the exclusive host stamp set, In Your Words (available only during Sale-A-Bration). Every time I make a card for someone I hope it makes them smile! This stamp set has a variety of sentiments for different occasions. I love the mix of fonts too!

Keeping It Slim with Sand & Sea

I love the beach! When my toes are in the sand, I’m in my happy place! I enjoy combing the shore for shells and sea glass. Just smelling the salt air and listening to the waves relaxes me like nothing else. I am dreaming of a beach vacation! Next week is my two weeks “post vaccine” and after a year of staying home I am ready for some sand & sea! My husband and I are trying to decide on a new beach destination (in the USA) to visit. What’s your favorite beach vacation? I’d love for you to leave a comment below and help us decide.

Today I’ve combined my love for the sand & sea with a fun slimline card. (*The slimline card fits in a business size envelope and doesn’t cost any extra to mail!)
Stampin' Up! Sand & Sea slimline card idea for any occasion - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I used products from the Sand & Sea Collection to create my card.
Stampin' Up! Sand & Sea Suite Collection - for inspiration and ordering information visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
The Sand & Sea Suite Collection includes:
* Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set (10% off)
* Seaside Seashell Dies (10% off)
* Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper
* Pearlescent Specialty Paper
* Shimmering Shells Stickers
* Seashells 3D Embossing Folder
* Opal Rounds

This month I am featuring the Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle (from the Sand & Sea Suite) in my exclusive tutorials (free with a $50 purchase). I love this bundle!!!
Stampin' Up! Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle - visit juststampin.com for inspiration, exclusive tutorials, and ordering information
The stamp set has great and versatile sentiments as well as beach images. The dies are awesome on their own and coordinate with the Seashells 3D Embossing folder. You can make an incredible background with this embossing folder or use the large die to cut the embossed shells like I did. I used the pearlescent paper and love the look! (You could sponge color on the embossed shells if you want.) Look at the texture you get from this embossing folder!

I like to bring a little of the beach home with me!
My sand collection from my travels. Visit www.juststampin.com for inspiration and Stampin' Up! supplies.I have a sand collection from all the different beaches I’ve visited. (Oh the stories I could tell about some of this sand! FYI…trying to go through customs with sand in a plastic bag is not always easy!  LOL) I love the different colors and textures. It’s amazing how different the sand is from beach to beach. I have sand from as far north as Prince Edward Island and as far south as Cancun, Mexico. I also have sand from as far west as Hawaii and as far east as Normandy, France. I spend a lot of time on the east coast and have collected sand from Maine to Florida. My favorite is the pink sand from Bermuda! This is such a fun collection and brings a smile to my face.  It’s inexpensive and easy to document my travels with some Avery labels on jars. I wonder where my next sand will be from???? Help me decide! Leave a comment below suggesting a great beach getaway!

Do you like creating slimline cards? Here’s some I’ve shared previously. This size card is great for stamping images, showcasing embossing, or layering Designer Series Paper. It’s also a great size for sending a handwritten note as there’s plenty of space to write inside. *Click on the image to view the original post.

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “Great Family Occasions.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
Stampin' Up! Pansy Petals Seed Packet Holders for Mother's Day table favors or gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I am looking forward to Mother’s Day this year more than ever! I come from a large family (I am one of 6 kids)! We always get together for the holidays and special occasions (except this past year during the pandemic)! I had my second vaccine yesterday and after thirteen months of quarantine, I can’t wait to travel in May to see my family for Mother’s Day!!! I love to make little gifts and table favors and I’ve been making seed packet holders for family and friends!
Stampin'Up! Pansy PEtals seed packet holders for Mother's Day gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
These seed packets coordinate with the new Pansy Petals Suite which will be available May 4th in the 2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s a peek at the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper and bundle.

The sentiment I used on the inside is from Dragonfly Garden and it’s perfect for these! There are several choices for Mother’s Day sentiments/fonts. I chose two, Timeless Tulips and Dressed to Impress. I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut these out. (*When I’m creating multiples I like to cut more than one at a time.) I cut the flowers from the DSP using the Pansy Dies.

I like to try out different color combinations when I’m creating.  Here’s a look at each.

You can make these seed packets for any occasion! In my “seed search” I found seed packets for new baby, weddings, birthdays, graduation, sympathy, etc. Just change up the designer series paper and sentiment and you have a thoughtful little party or shower favor!

Check back tomorrow for the Tutorial.

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! Mark your calendars for our next blog hop on May 12th when our theme is “2021-2023 New In Colors” when our Design Team creates a project with the new family of In Colors for any occasion. Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft space.
