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!

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!

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.

Sunshine Wishes for Kelly and Kyle!

My beautiful niece got married this summer. I made several wedding cards for family members to give.  Today I’m sharing a quick & easy card to hold a check or cash.

Stampin Up Sunshine Wishes money holder wedding card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits and Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper.  My niece loves pink and not only were the bridesmaids dresses a pretty soft pink, her bouquet (made by my talented sister) had a touch of pink too!

This card is simple to make using two of my favorite tools, the Stampin’ Trimmer and the envelope punch board.  Many thanks to Amy Koenders for the inspiration for this card. Start with a 7 x 8 1/2 piece of DSP (or cardstock) and score along the long side at 3 and 6.  (I love that the Stampin’ Trimmer cuts and scores!) Next, use the envelope punch board and line up the shorter side at 3 1/2 and punch on the side with the score line closest to it. Line up the notch with the cutting point on your trimmer and cut from the edge to the notch on just one side.

savingpng-49

Fold on the score lines and add sticky strip along the sides of the pocket. Stamp a sentiment on the inside.  I used the Floral Phrases stamp set and Mossy Meadow ink.

To make the belly band cut a 3 1/2 x 7 piece of Petal Pink cardstock and adhere it to a 3 3/4 x 7 piece of Gold Foil. Score at 1 7/8 and 5. Fold along the score lines and adhere the ends. Wrap ribbon around and tie a bow. I adhered the dies from Sunshine Wishes Thinlits which I cut from Gold Foil and Thick Very Vanilla cardstock. The belly band will slide on and off the card.

Stampin Up Sunshine Wishes wedding card / money holder idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

No envelope was necessary for this card as it was placed in the card box at the reception.  I love these pictures of the happy couple on their wedding day.

Here’s to Happily Ever After!

Wishing you a wonderful day!

Stampin Up Love What You Do All Occasion card idea from the Share What You Love Suite -Jeanie Stark StampinUp
 I was inspired by a Dawn Griffith’s card sketch to create this card.  I chose the colors from the gorgeous Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.

I love the color combination of Rich Razzleberry and Crumb Cake. Check out this new ribbon…a super soft velvet in Rich Razzleberry!  This card has lots of layers and a front pocket to tuck in your special sentiment.  Here’s the details:
Card Base – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4  (Rich Razzleberry)
Layer 1 – 4 x 5 1/4 (Crumb Cake)
Layer 2 – 3 3/4 x 5 (Whisper White)
DSP and cardstock diagonal pieces – 3 3/4 x 3 cut at a diagonal
Sentiment insert – 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 (Whisper White), 2 3/4 x 4 (Rich Razzleberry)
Apply adhesive to the sides and bottom of the diagonal pieces and adhere to the Whisper White layer. *Make sure you do not add adhesive on the diagonal so you can insert the sentiment in the pocket. Adhere this layer to the crumb cake and wrap ribbon before adhering to the card base. The sentiment and flower are from the Love What You Do Stamp Set.
Share What You Love
The flower is stamped in Crumb Cake and stamped off once.  The sentiment is stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink. I love that this sentiment can be used for many different occasions (birthday, wedding, anniversary, graduation, etc.).  I am giving this card to my mom for Mother’s Day. I like that the sentiment can come out and you can put a gift card behind. What a nice surprise!
Stampin Up Love What You Do All Occasion card idea from the Share What You Love Suite -Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I think my mom will love the colors in this card…she has these colors throughout her home. I love to make coordinating envelopes…a fun sneak peek at what’s inside!

Moon Baby for Tic Tac Toe #42

Stampin Up Moon Baby gift card holder baby card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

It’s time for another Tic Tac Toe Challenge! How would YOU like to be a guest designer? Simply play along and someone will be chosen each week to be a future guest designer.  Here’s this week’s challenge board…

img_1511-1

My niece is pregnant with her first child so I know I will be needing a card for her baby shower.  I always love to give books as gifts and Kohl’s sells books and stuffed animals on behalf of their Kohl’s Cares program.  I love to purchase these as 100% of the net profit from the sale is donated to charitable organizations including children’s hospital initiatives that support healthy development, safety, wellness and chronic disease management. When I see my favorites I buy several to have on hand to give as gifts as they are so reasonably priced at just $5 each. Today’s card holds a gift card and goes with one of my children’s favorite bedtime stories, Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown.

Stampin Up Moon Baby gift card holder baby card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the Moon Baby stamp set to create my card for this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  I went down the first column with animal, baby, layers. ( It also works on the diagonal with stripes, punch, layers as I used the banner punch on the ends of my sentiment layer.) This card measures 4 1/4 x 9 1/2 and is scored at 1 1/2 and 4. It has a pocket to hold a gift card inside.

Stampin Up Moon Baby gift card holder baby card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love making my cards and gifts coordinate!  That’s the beauty of a handmade card.

Stampin Up Moon Baby gift card holder baby card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

It’s hard to tell in the photo but I embossed the background layer with stars to go with the cover of the book.  I colored the animals with Stampin’ Blends and popped the banner with Dimensionals.  If you need a gift idea for a new mom to be, I highly recommend this book!  Do you have a favorite book you like to read your children or grandchildren? I would love for you to leave a comment below and share your story.

You can purchase the products used to make today’s card from my online store.  Click HERE to shop or click on the images below.

Have a Wonderful Day! I am heading to Hartford, Connecticut today to join my stamping friends for a long weekend.  Saturday is the Stampin’ Up! convention and I can’t wait to see the new products that will be coming out in June.  I won’t be able to share any secrets until Monday but I can share our swap cards and the fun projects we will be doing ahead of time!  Be sure to check back!

Sunshine Wishes Gift Card Holder

My husband asked me to make a card for him for a coworker who is battling cancer.  He wanted it to hold a gift card to a restaurant.

Stampin Up Support Ribbon card idea for breast cancer patients - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This is my go to card “formula” for a quick & easy gift card holder:

Card base: 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 2 and 5 1/2.

Inside layer for sentiment: 4 x 5 1/4

DSP Layers:  4 x 3 1/4 (front), 4 x 1 3/4 (gift pocket), and 4 x 2 (inside).

Stampin Up Ribbon of Courage gift card holder idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the 2017- 2019 In Color, Powder Pink, and the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack. The Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies had the perfect word die to go with the Support Ribbon Framelits. I used the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to adhere a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to foam then cut it out with the die and glued it to the front panel. (*You can get a similar effect by cutting the die several times and gluing them together.)

I love all the different designs in the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Pack. They all work together.  I used 2 designs on the card and another one on the envelope.

You could easily adapt this card for any gift giving occasion by changing the DSP and the sentiment.  Great for birthdays, holidays, graduations, etc.

Stampin Up Year of Cheer and Merry Little Labels gift box idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

‘Tis the season of giving! I love to create my own packaging for gifts and when it comes to giving monetary gifts (which seems to be the preference for teenagers and young adults)  it’s fun to add a little surprise element. Hopefully this little box does just that! This “never ending money box” is fun and easy to make with just a few supplies…Simply Scored Scoring Tool, adhesive, and washi tape (and $ of course).  You can embellish the box as much or as little as you like.  Pretty ribbon and a tag do the trick !

My son and two nephews are going up north skiing and snowboarding after Christmas so I know they can use a little extra cash.  I thought the gorgeous snowflake paper and sentiment from Merry Little Labels would be perfect for their boxes. It certainly doesn’t look like your typical monetary gift. Take a peek inside…

Washi Tape holds the bills together and you just fold in thirds accordion style to make it look like a lot more $.  I heat embossed the label with Silver Embossing Powder and punched another label using the Silver Glimmer Paper. You can use these boxes for more than just money! I used the Large Letters Framelits to monogram my other box. You could fit jewelry, small candles, etc. in the box.

There’s so many possibilities for how you can decorate these boxes. Yesterday I shared a fun set of “dice” boxes I created for my husband’s birthday. They look totally different from today’s boxes yet they were made the same way.
