The Heartfelt Bundle is part of this suite and includes the Heartfelt Stamp Set and Heart Punch Pack. One punch is scalloped and layers perfectly with the other. You can also punch the hearts from the Designer Series Paper. How cool is that?!!

The stamp set has some great sentiments! Check out this video to see the different products in the suite along with some project ideas.

The From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper has playful patterns with foil accents on some designs. This 30 second video flips through each of the designs in this paper pack.

I used the DSP, ribbon, and heart doilies from the suite to create this fun fold valentine.

The heart doilies come in Real Red and Flirty Flamingo or you can flip them over if you prefer white. I love how they are sized to fit the Heart Foil Tins or card fronts.  I’m planning to make homemade fudge for Valentine’s Day to give to family and friends.  The heart foil tins are food safe and perfect to pour the fudge in and let it mold in to shape! Talk about easy! There’s so much you can do with this suite for year round cards and gifts!

V is for Valentine

Welcome back to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! Throughout this series I have been sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC! Today I have a card & gift to share with you. I used the Everything Festive Stamp Set with the Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper to create this Valentine card and Hershey Nugget treat box.

Stampin' Up! Everything Festive Stamp Set and Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper Valentine card and Hershey Nugget Treat Box idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This card could be used for anytime of the year to let someone know you love them.

Stampin' Up! Valentine Card Idea made with Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper, Everything Festive Stamp Set, and Stitched Nested Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The designer series paper and gold shimmer ribbon I used are part of the Christmastime is Here Suite which is only available this month (while supplies last).  Here’s the details if you would like to make this card:

Materials & Measurements

  • Cherry Cobbler:  5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 for card base
  • Gold Foil: 2 1/4 x 4 1/4, 3 1/4 x 4 1/4, 1/4 x 6 for envelope flap,  scraps to cut hearts from Stitched Be Mine Dies
  • Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper: 2 x 4 1/4, 3 x 4, 2 x 6
  • Whisper White: 2 x 3 1/2 to stamp sentiment in Cherry Cobbler Ink and cut with Stitched Nested Die, 4 x 5 1/4 for inside card
  • Gold Glimmer Ribbon: ~10 inches to wrap around DSP layer and tie a simple knot

You can use this card “formula” with other DSP and sentiments for any occasion. The ribbon layer and sentiment layer are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I love to give cards and little gifts that coordinate.  Here’s a simple Hershey Nugget Treat Box made from a 6 x 6 piece of Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Stampin' Up! Hershey Nugget Valentine treat box Idea made with Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper, Everything Festive Stamp Set, and Stitched Nested Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Gold Foil Hearts are cut from the Stitched Be Mine Dies and added with Glue Dots. I followed Julie DiMatteo’s Video Tutorial for the Hinged-Lid Box.

Materials & Measurements

  • Christmastime is Here Specialty DSP – 6″ x 6″
    • First cut off a 2″ x 6″ piece and cut that into 4 – 1″ x 3″ pieces for the Hershey’s Nugget wraps
    • Then, with the remaining 4″ x 6″ piece, cut of 1/8″ from the 6″ side so you have a 4″ x 5-7/8″ piece
    • Score all 4 sides of the 4″ x 5-7/8″ piece at 5/8″
    • Then, along the 5-7/8″, score at 2-5/8″ and 3-1/4″

Fold and burnish along the score lines. Cut and notch the score lines on the long sides as shown below.

Add adhesive to the notched tabs, fold and tuck to assemble the box. Use the 1/2″ Circle Punch to cut a notch on the top of the box.

Wrap the Hershey Nuggets with 1 x 3 DSP strips. (*I used Glue Dots on each end of the DSP.) Here’s what the box looks like when you open it.

You can make this simple treat box for any occasion! What a “sweet” little treat to make for those you love!

I am in Hartford, Connecticut today for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Event.  I have been looking forward to attending this event with my stamping friends and getting to see and play with new products that will be coming out in the 2020 Occasions Catalog in January.  I will be sharing sneak peeks of the new products and ideas when I get back!

Have a great day!

M is for Mini Curvy Keepsake Box Dies

Welcome to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! Throughout this series I will be sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC! Today I’m showcasing the Mini Curvy Keepsake Box. I loved it’s Mama (Curvy Keepsakes Die) from several years ago and just about anything mama could do, so can this little cutie! Here’s a look at the first project I made.

Stampin' Up!Harvest Hellos Bundle and Mini Curvy Keepsake Box Dies apple treat holder idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUpStampin' Up!Harvest Hellos Bundle and Mini Curvy Keepsake Box Dies apple treat holder idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I made over 50 of these apples…for the teachers for back to school, the hairdressers at the shop where I sell my cards, friends, etc.  They are so quick & easy to make! You had to cut two for the old “Mama” die and then you had to glue and assemble but this little one doesn’t require any adhesive at all and you can get two of these boxes per sheet of paper.  I filled the apples with 5 caramels each which still makes a nice little treat to give.  There are so many other things you can fill them with too! Here’s some others I made for Fall/Thanksgiving.

I used the Tiny Keepsakes Stamp Set to make the checked pattern on my boxes. You can purchase the Tiny Keepsakes Stamp Set and the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies as a bundle and SAVE 10%.  I debated getting the bundle and thought I would just buy the dies but I am so glad I went ahead and purchased the bundle!  The Tiny Keepsakes Stamp Set has two miniature background stamps with adorable greetings. You can make your cards and projects so creative making your own “Designer Series Paper” using the checked or stripes! Take a look at all you get with the Tiny Keepsakes Bundle.

Here’s a quick video to see how easy it is to put this treat holder together!

I like to use my bone folder to curl each side of the paper before I put it together.  It gives it a more rounded look.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Leaves and Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies Fall or Thanksgiving treat holder idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I filled these with M&M’s and a special little note. For years I’ve mixed up my special “Blessings Mix” and always had that in whatever table favors I made that year. This year, I’m changing it up and going with some M&M’s and a Thanksgiving Gratitude Game to get some fun family conversation going (I hope).

On a personal note…I am one happy mama today as my daughter flew in late last night and is home for a few days. We are planning to hit the craft shows this weekend, perhaps take a hike to the waterfalls, and enjoy the gorgeous Fall weather.  And, since she can’t come home for Thanksgiving this year, we are planning to celebrate the holiday this weekend with a big turkey and all the trimmings. I grew up in Massachusetts and went on many field trips to Plymouth Plantation.  We were told the first Thanksgiving was actually celebrated in October. It was good ole President George Washington who decided to proclaim a national Thanksgiving holiday in November. For me, any day I have my kids home is a day of Thanksgiving!!!!

Have a wonderful weekend!
