A Showcase of Valentines

I am often so busy creating that I don’t always get to photograph and blog about each card or gift I make. To me what’s most important is to share that handmade kindness and make someone smile. Today I have three different Valentine’s Day cards I made this year which I did manage to take a photograph or two before sending.

My first card today was for my son. It was made using products from the All My Love Suite.

My son loves to snowboard and he is heading to Colorado at the end of this month for a ski vacation. I know he will appreciate the little gift I tucked inside to enjoy the slopes in Vail! This card is clean & simple and full of love!

Yesterday I shared one of my favorite Sale-A-Bration stamp sets, Part of My Story.  I promised to show you another card I made using the same sentiment.  (If you missed yesterday’s post, click HERE to view.)  I love that this sentiment can be used any time of the year.  I enjoyed making these simple Valentine cards for my friends!

I used Stampin’ Up!’s Whisper White note cards & envelopes which made creating quick, easy, and economical!  Great for when having to make multiples! I also used the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies to cut the hearts (just like I did for all of today’s cards). These dies are gorgeous with stitching and scalloped details and can be used year round for wedding, anniversary, or other lovely occasions!

Check out the long scalloped die at the bottom.  You can use this die to add detail and stitching on an envelope flap and much more! How cool is that?! (Special thanks to Mary Fish for sharing that tip!)

Next, here’s a pop up gift card holder I made for my daughter. Her college apartment is across the street from Panera so I know she will enjoy this treat.Stampin Up Pop Up Gift Card Holder idea using Well Written Framelits Dies and Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love how the heart gift card coordinates with the colors in the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Check back tomorrow and I will share all the details how to make this pop up gift card holder.

Previously I shared a project I made for my husband.  I’m giving him “the key to my heart”.  If you missed that project you can view it HERE.

I hope you are surrounded by love today. I am reminded of a simple poem I read to my students recently… “There are silver ships, There are gold ships, But the best of all is friendship!”

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

Art from the Heart for the Pals Blog Hop

2019 January From The Heart graphic for BLog Hop

Welcome to the Pals monthly blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here! January is all about making “Art from the Heart,” featuring projects for Valentines Day, Thinking of You, Get Well, or Sympathy. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin Up Large Letter Framelits and Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies Framed Art Gift Ideas for Valentine's Day, Wedding, or Anniversary - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love to make 3D projects to give as gifts. (Did you see the other framed projects I made for Christmas?) Today’s projects are quick & easy using the Large Letters Framelits and a 4 x 6 picture frame.

My first project makes a great Valentine or anniversary gift for the love of your life. Who will you give the “key to your heart”?

Stampin Up Large Letter Framelits and Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies Framed Art Gift Ideas for Valentine's Day, Wedding, or Anniversary - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I started with a piece of 4 x 6 All My Love Designer Series Paper.  The beautiful heart is from the Be Mine Stitched Framelit Dies which is part of the All My Love Suite in the new Occasions catalog.  I cut the heart and die from thick Whisper White cardstock and adhered them to the DSP.  I made a matching bow using Lovely Lipstick Ribbon and adhered it on top with a glue dot.  The finishing touch was adding the key from the Classic Garage Metal Elements.

Stampin Up Large Letter Framelits and Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies Framed Art Gift Ideas for Valentine's Day, Wedding, or Anniversary - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

After 33 years I’m giving this “key to my heart” to my husband!

I couldn’t wait to make my next project as soon as I saw the gorgeous Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper! My beautiful niece got married last summer and the dress she wore for her engagement photo matched the fresh fig floral vellum design.

Stampin Up Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper is the perfect background for framed art for wedding or anniversary - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used another heart from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies and this one cuts out the heart in the center as well as the scalloped frame. I cut the photo and a piece of Fresh fig cardstock and adhered the photo inside the framed piece.

The soft elegant designs in the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper are perfect for weddings, anniversaries, and more. It is so easy to hand cut the vellum to use for accents like I did on the corner of my frame. Here’s a look at the other designs.  (It’s one of my favorite paper packs in the Occasions catalog!)

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.

Stampin Up copper tins treat holder idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

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!

Shine A Light On Peace for the Pals Blog Hop

December All that Sparkles and Shines post graphic

Welcome to the Pals monthly blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here! December is time for glitz and bling with  “All that Sparkles & Shines”. Today we feature projects that sparkle or shine. Maybe even a little of both.

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I live in Maryland not far from the Antietam National Battlefield. One of our family traditions is to visit the battlefield the first weekend in December for their Annual Memorial Illumination. It is the largest memorial illumination in all of North America and this year marked their 30th anniversary. Each luminary (over 23,000) represents a soldier’s sacrifice during the bloodiest one-day battle of the Civil War. (I’m a bit of a history buff.) There are no words adequate to describe the event…to see these hallowed grounds lit up is unbelievably surreal!

Antietam National Battlefield

I was inspired by my recent visit to create this set of luminaries.

Stampin Up Large Letter Framelits Peace Luminaries for Christmas Home decor idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These are simple to make. For each one I cut a 5 x 8 1/4 piece of Garden Green cardstock and scored each at 2, 4, 6, and 8. I used the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies (available Jan. 3rd in the Occasions Catalog) to cut the shape out for my light to shine through. I was so excited when I saw these dies in the new catalog! You get 13 different sizes which feature stitching inside and outside the frame! How cool is that?!

Stampin Up Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I cut my vellum at 1 7/8 x 3 1/2 and adhered it to the back with glue dots. I cut the letters from the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper using the Large Letter Framelits and adhered these to the vellum. I used Tear & Tape along the 1/4 edge to secure together.

A battery operated tealight fits inside for a nice glow. I added some Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon to tie it together for that “sparkle and shine”.

Stampin Up Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies and Large Letter Framelits Peace Luminaries for Christmas Home decor idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

You can make these to give as a gift or decorate your mantle or bookcase. These make the perfect night lite for a child’s bedroom (you could spell out the child’s name) or any room (use any die).

Here’s a few more photos of the Illumination.

I am thankful for our men and women in the Armed Forces throughout the world.  My thoughts and prayers are with those who lost their lives, so the world may someday enjoy world peace.

Thanksgiving Favors

Happy Thanksgiving! I am thankful for you and appreciate that you take the time to stop by!  I love to create and share with you! I enjoy making 3D projects and always love to have little table favors for family and friends for holidays and other special occasions. I made these for my Thanksgiving  table favors this year.

Stampin’ Up! Pillow Boxes are the perfect size for gift cards, small gifts, notes, candy treats, and favors! They are so versatile for year round use! You get 10 boxes for just $5 (which doesn’t break the bank)! Every year I’ve filled table favors with my Blessings Mix (*see recipe below) but I thought I would change it up this year and use an M&M poem I found.  My daughter is a math major and I know she will appreciate one of the verses on this one.

I enjoy Halloween! My kids come dressed in costumes and we parade all around the school.  I get to dress up every year too! Usually I am a storybook character but this year I changed it up a bit and decided to go as a character from a nursery rhyme my students just learned. Can you guess which one?

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).

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!

Check out the Stampin’ Up! how-to videos to see everything in the kit and how easy it is to put these projects together!

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.

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

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

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!!
