Positive Thoughts

With everything that’s going on with the Coronavirus right now we can all use some positive thoughts. That’s exactly what you get in the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set.

I love this stamp set and it couldn’t be more appropriate right now! Use the images and phrases in these stamps to create a bouquet of affirmation for your friends and family. I used the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper with this stamp set to create some bright and cheery cards.

I needed to take a break from watching the news so I decide to unplug and play in my craft room most of the day on Saturday. It was so much fun! The Best Dressed Designer Series Paper has so many gorgeous floral designs. I will be making more cards using all of them! Here’s a quick video showing each of the different patterns.

Here’s a closer look at each of the cards I created.

For my first card I used Blackberry Bliss for the card base and dressed up the edge of the Old Olive strip with a die from Stitched Be Mine Dies. The Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon is so easy to wrap and tie bows! You can also dye it any color you want using Stampin’ Blends!

Purple Posy and Mint Macaron create a beautiful soft color combination. I used the Beautiful Scalloped Linen Ribbon to create the border trim.

My third card uses Old Olive and Daffodil Delight along with the Stitched Be Mine Die and Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon.

The layout of each is the same with just a few subtle differences with ribbon and trim. Here’s the details:

  • Card Base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
  • Whisper White layer: 3 5/8 x 4 7/8
  • DSP Layer: 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 and 1 1/4 x 4 1/4
  • Add ribbon and trim to DSP strip before adhering to card.
  • Stamp sentiment from Positive Thoughts and punch with 1 1/2 Circle Punch.
  • Cut Circle Die in coordinating color to layer sentiment.
  • Punch scrap in same color cardstock as card base using Label Me Pretty Punch
  • Adhere sentiment layer to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add pearls on eaither side of greeting.
  • Stamp sentiment, fern, and butterfly on Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4 for inside of card. 
  • Stamp the front of the envelope to coordinate.

Counting My Blessings with Forever Blossoms

My husband, daughter, and I decided to take a drive to Washington, DC over the weekend to get out and about for a bit. (It’s only an hour drive from where we live.) Spring in our nation’s capital is my favorite time of year, especially when the cherry blossoms are in bloom! This weekend was peak season and it was a gorgeous sight to behold!

The beauty of nature is a gift to be appreciated! Usually we would get out and walk along the paths but this year (due to “social distancing”) we stayed in our car. I was inspired to create some cards for my friends!

Stampin Up Forever Blossoms and So Sentimental friend card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Forever Blossoms stamp set and Cherry Blossoms Dies were the perfect choice to create this beautiful inspiring scene! I chose to use the sentiment and dies from the So Sentimental Bundle to cut the opening and stamp the inside of my card.

I added a touch of color to the blossoms with Stampin’ Blends.
