Varied Vases In Color Note Cards

I really appreciate everyone who places an order with me. I like to tuck a note in with my monthly thank you gifts and I love the narrow note cards! I hope my wonderful customers enjoy these bright colored flowers and vases!

Stampin Up Varied Vases In Color thank you card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I wanted to showcase the new 2018-2020 In Colors. I used the Varied Vases Stamp Set and matching punch. You can purchase these as a bundle and save 10%!

These note cards were so much fun to make! I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut the Whisper White ovals and the Layering Circles Framelits to cut my colored cardstock layers.

I punched the vase from a sticky note so I could make sure I stamped the stems inside where the vase would be. (This is the same technique I use for masking.)

The punch made it quick & easy to punch the flowers and vases. I adhered the flowers with glue dots and the vases with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The envelopes are lined with the same In Color DSP using the 2 1/4″ Circle Punch. Here’s a look at each of the In Color cards.

MUST HAVE…Color Refresh Swatch Books and Color Coach

Do you struggle with color combinations? Do you want a quick & easy way to see which colors look good together? Do you remember when Stampin’ Up! offered a Color Coach?  Well, if you answered yes to any of those questions, today is your lucky day! People often ask me about color combinations and where I get my inspiration. I get color inspiration everywhere (shopping for clothes, looking through catalogs and magazines, Home Decor items, etc. ); however, there is one thing that I keep in my craft room and use all the time…my cardstock color swatches.

Stampin Up NEW Color Coach and Swatch Book - Available from Jeanie Stark www.juststampin.com StampinUp

This stack of color is my “go to” when I’m looking for colors to combine. I can fan them out and try different colors together to see how I like them. It makes my color selections simple. I have all 53 Stampin’ Up! colors on a ring with dividers by collections. Each piece of cardstock is individually labeled. If you are a demonstrator, this is a perfect way to show all of our paper! And now it’s even better because you can download the NEW Stampin” Up! Color Coach and adhere it to the back of each color swatch and have instant color combinations at your fingertips.

Color Revamp

The spice of life is variety, and that’s especially true in the world of color. Stampin’ Up! makes a point to keep an eye on color trends across different markets and industries. When they see changes happening, they review our color spectrum to ensure that we remain consistently on top of the trends. This brings us to the 2018 Color Revamp!

There are still four color collections, each with ten colors. There is also a new color group called Basics which includes 3 colors:  Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White.Stampin Up Color Collections - For ideas, ordering and more visit www.juststampin.com Jeanie Stark StampinUpThere are no changes to the In Color program. Every year we will continue to introduce five new In Colors that will be available for the ensuing two years.

In addition, the 2016-2018 In Colors are retiring:www.juststampin.com

*Please note that while Flirty Flamingo is retiring as an In Color, it will continue to be available as part of our core color collection.

In addition to new colors, Stampin’ Up! also redesigned our ink pads. The case is a new, more intuitive design and they’ve improved the formula of the ink, as well! (*FYI…You certainly do not need to replace all your current ink pads.  The new ink pads will just be a little different design and slightly different size.  They are slimmer and stackable. You will be able to purchase just the new colors without having to buy them all.) Here’s a look at the new stamp case.

New Classic Ink Pad

I  got my preorder the other day and I absolutely love the new colors!!! I can’t even pick a new favorite just yet (though they had me at Merlot)! I know my daughter is going to be thrilled with 2 new purples! Is there a new color that you are excited about? The new colors will be available in the 2018 Annual Catalog (available June 1st).  Would you like to get your hands on these colors before then?  Check back later this week to find out how! Or you could always sign up to be a demonstrator and preorder the new stuff for yourself! Contact me for more information!

Have a great day! It’s like the first day of school for me all over again. I’ve been unable to work for the last 3 months; however, after much Physical Therapy, I will be heading back into the classroom half days for now.  I can’t wait to see my kids again!!!

I am just returning from Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage convention in Hartford, Conn.  I had a blast!  It was so much fun getting together with my stamping friends!  Six of us rented a house just outside Hartford so we could extend our stay and have some stamping fun.  We didn’t get much sleep and I laughed so hard my sides hurt! I have so much to share with you in the weeks ahead but first I want to make sure you don’t miss out on some important information…

*The retirement list is coming out today, April 9th at 1PM (MT).  Be sure to check back! You can click on SHOP Stampin’ Up! from my blog (~3 PM EST) and then click on the retirement list. Items sell out fast once they release the list so if there is something you want, don’t wait! We will be saying good bye to the 2016 -2018 In Colors. I really love these colors!!!

A Quick & Easy Box for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #15

I needed a quick & easy box for a little gift. I admit I am often last minute but this was an unexpected special request for a little baby girl.  What could be more special than homemade?! This little gift box was simple to make using the Window Box Thinlits.Stampin Up Window Box Thinlits gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used elements from this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge board to create this sweet gift box.

No automatic alt text available.

I made Tic Tac Toe two ways: across the top and down the left side. I love how fun and easy it is to create by just choosing elements from the challenge boards each week! The floral squares are cut from the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper. I stamped the sentiment from Colorful Seasons inside the bottom of the box using the same color ink as the cardstock, Powder Pink.  It will be a nice surprise when they take the gift out.

Stampin Up Window Box Thinlits gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

One of the things I love about these boxes is the versatility! You can easily reuse this box as a little nightlight by putting a battery tealight inside. Click HERE to see a video, photo tutorial with directions, and 4 more box ideas I made using these dies.

There’s still time to play along with this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge. Challenges run from Thursday – Tuesday with winners announced on Wednesday.

In Color Combinations

Do you need some color inspiration? Stampin’ Up! created this cool chart showing many different color combinations using the new 2017 – 2019 In Colors.  Just click on the chart below for a larger view and print ready copy.

2017incolorcombinations

Let’s get some inspirational chatter going…What’s your favorite color combination? You can probably guess mine by the number of cards I’ve made using it…yellow and black with white or vanilla. (Throw in some red accent pillows and you have my bedroom decor. LOL)  I am also a huge fan of classic navy and white…which works well with just about any accent color (including my favorite, yellow). I find I tend to grab for the same colors again and again so I’m trying to challenge myself to try some different color combinations. Let’s inspire each other with some new color combinations to try! Leave a comment with your favorite color combinations.

Have a great weekend!

A Mini Treat Bag for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #4

Stampin Up Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Die gift card holder idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

img_4096

It’s Thursday so that means it’s time to play Tic Tac Toe!  I am so excited to be the designer for this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  Of course my Tic Tac Toe Challenge is an abc board.  I hope you will pick 3 and play along! We have extended the contest until Tuesday at noon (CST) to enter. You do not need a blog to play along. Click HERE for all the details. Here’s this week’s challenge board.

TTTC004

I used all 9 elements on my project this week. Can you find them?

Stampin Up Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Die gift card holder idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Die to make a gift card holder. I embossed the bag using the Layered Leaves 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The DSP is from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack. Happy Birthday is heat embossed using Dapper Denim Ink , VersaMark, and Clear Embossing Powder. (I love this shade of blue.) I colored the flowers using my blender pen and In Color Inks in Dapper Denim and Lemon Lime Twist. I added a Perfect White Accent to my ribbon.

The mini treat bag is so easy to make using the dies.  Check out this short video to see how to put it together as well as some of the different projects you can make using these dies.

I love the versatility of these dies! Know what else I LOVE…the new 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Layered Leaves!!! You can create deep, dimensional embossed impressions so quick & easy.  It is a little different process to emboss because it is a thick folder. You need to spritz the paper first with water to get a deep impression.  Here’s a quick (3 min.) video explaining how it works and how to make your embossing “sandwich”.

I love the final results and can see using this embossing folder again and again.  It really adds a quick & easy WOW to any project!

Stampin Up Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Die gift card holder idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Stamp Set: Label Me Pretty  Ink: Dapper Denim, Lemon Lime Twist, VersaMark  Papers: Lemon Lime Twist, Dapper Denim, Shimmery White, Whisper White, Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper  Tools & Accessories: Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies, Layered Leaves 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Pretty Label Punch, Clear Embossing Powder, Blender Pen, Stampin’ Spritzer, Lemon Lime Twist Finely Woven Ribbon, Dapper Denim Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Dapper Denim Baker’s Twine, Perfect White Accent, Tear & Tape, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Glue Dots, Hole Punch

I hope you will play along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge. It is really easy and fun to do!  I had never done a challenge before the TTTC and couldn’t believe how easy it is to create by simply choosing the elements from the challenge board. I knew I wanted to use the In Colors so I pulled the In Color DSP and Dapper Denim (for blue) and decided that I liked Lemon Lime Twist with the blue. I decided to include “gift” from the board and I immediately thought of a gift card holder. All I had to do was choose a stamp set and cardstock and let the items dictate what I create.  It is a fun way to make something different.  I am amazed at how quick & easy it is to come up with an idea when you have the items right in front of you. I did not start out intending to use all 9 elements but it just came together once I started to create using the different elements in front of me. Give it a try! Click HERE to see what the design team and others created this week.

M is for a Fun Fold

Welcome to my ABC’s with Fun Folds series. Today’s fun fold makes the letter M.

BJ Peters shared this fun fold from Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage Convention and when you look at it from above it looks like the letter M.

img_2632

OK so perhaps I am stretching it a little. Remember the book It Looked Like Spilt Milk? I was the kid who looked at the clouds for hours imagining different animals, letters, etc. in the shape of the clouds.

This is a quick and easy card to put together. The card base is 5 1/2 x 11 scored at 1 1/4, 4, and 6 3/4.  I used several patterns of DSP from the new 2017 – 2019 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack.  Cut (2) 1 x 5 1/4 for the front fold, then cut 1 at 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 and 4 x 5 1/4.  Adhere these to the card.  Cut a piece of 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 Whisper White to stamp a sentiment.  My sentiment is from a new stamp set, Ribbon of Courage (available June 1). I love the sentiments in this set! I used the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits to cut the dragonflies out of black cardstock.  I love the contrast of black with the new In Color, Lemon Lime Twist.

This card was so quick & easy I decided to make another one using the Moroccan Designer Series Paper.

Stampin Up Fun fold card with Designer Series Paper. For more fun fold card ideas, directions, and inspiration, visit my blog at www.juststampin.com

This one has a completely different look just by changing the DSP and making it horizontal rather than vertical.  I think this one has a more masculine feel to it. The Moroccan Designer Series Paper I used on this one is retiring and is only available while supplies last.  You can get it at a 30% savings by shopping my online store and checking out the retiring list.

Spring is in the air and we released our butterflies at school today.  My Pre-K students love this every year!  We’ve watched them change from caterpillars to butterflies and now it was time to let them go. I was drawn to the Butterfly Basics stamp set for my fun fold card today.

I decided to use one of the new In Colors, Lemon Lime Twist, to go with the letter of the day.  I really didn’t think I was going to like this color but, after pairing it with black with last month’s Paper Pumpkin and now with Dapper Denim, it is really growing on me. I think sometimes it just takes the right color combination.  I often get asked how I choose the colors.  Most of the time I get my inspiration from clothing, bedding, home decor, magazines, HGTV, or our Designer Series Paper packs. For this card I chose the colors from the Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper.  I love the way the paper packs have the coordinating colors printed right on the pack.  Makes it so easy!  I used the DSP to cut my butterfly from the Butterflies Thinlits. I cut another butterfly from vellum using the Bold Butterfly Framelits and adhered the two with glue dots.

Then I pulled the colors from the DSP to make the card.  The card base is Lemon Lime Twist cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4.  I cut a piece of 5 x 6 Very Vanilla for the inside and scored it at 2 and 4.  I used the Layering Squares Framelits to cut a square out of the front of my card.

I also used the Layering Squares Framelits to cut 3 squares the colors of my butterfly.  I stamped the top layer using the fern from the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and Lemon Lime Twist Ink. I stamped the inside and front of my card using sentiments from this set and Dapper Denim Ink.

Next, I applied adhesive to the back of the inside sentiment panel only and adhered it to the inside of the card.  Then I closed the card and applied adhesive just where the inside piece peeks through the front and attached the layered squares inside the square.

I attached the butterfly with some glue dots and added a few rhinestones. This card sits nice on a desk or shelf.  I also like that there’s a nice panel to sign the card.

Here’s a short video showcasing the Butterfly Basics and Butterfly Thinlits Dies. *This is an older video.  She uses the magnetic plate and wax paper to cut out the butterfly die.  I highly recommend the Precision Base Plate and the thin die adapter.  I was able to cut my butterfly out easily just running it through the Big Shot once.  Much easier with better results!!!

She made some adorable cards with this stamp set and dies and you can too!  If you would like to purchase any of the materials I used on my card today, please Click HERE to visit my online store.
