O is for Special Occasion

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ll be sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! There are many special occasions throughout the year which call for particular cards.  What’s more special than the miracle of a newborn?! My niece is having a baby boy so I made this card for her.

Stampin' Up! Well Written baby card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Owls are trendy in home decor these days and she is decorating her nursery with an owl theme.  I really wanted to use the owl from the Hoot Hoot Hooray stamp set (found in the Beginner Brochure) but I forgot to add it on my last order! (How many of you have done that before?) Check out this cute stamp set!

This set pairs an image and a sentiment for each occasion. There’s even a Hoot Hoot Hooray Bundle (similar to the Celebrate with Cake Bundle I shared the other day.) The bundle includes everything you need to create 20 cards for birthdays, new baby, celebration, friendship, support, and more.

This stamp set will definitely be on my next order! For now, I had to use a retired owl I had in my collection! You can easily substitute any image and use this card design for many different occasions. It’s a quick & easy card to duplicate! Here’s the measurements:

  • 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Card base (Seaside Spray) scored at 4 1/4
  • 3 x 4 DSP

I added a 4 inch strip of the beautiful Scalloped Linen Ribbon with Tear and Tape. Then I stamped the image on whisper white and cut it with the Circle Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a Scalloped Circle from the Layering Circles Dies as a border. I thought it needed a little more color so I cut another circle from the Layering Circles Dies in So Saffron to go behind to make it look like the moon. What do you think?

Stampin' Up! Well Written baby card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I have been getting a lot of use out of my Well Written Dies lately!  I love word dies and this set is the Mother Load! (You can click on the product image below to enlarge and view in my online store to see all the different words.) It coordinates with the Well Said Stamp Set for many different sentiment possibilities. I layered the word die on a scrap piece of Whisper White and fussy cut around it to make it pop on the DSP.

I love to give books with or as gifts, especially for little ones! I found the perfect book to go with this owl themed occasion.  Hoot Hoot Hooray!

G is for Get Well

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ll be sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! I have a Get Well card idea for today. (I never seem to have extra of these on hand when I need one.)

Stampin Up! Healing Hugs Get Well card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the Healing Hugs Stamp Set, Bird Ballard Designer Series Paper, and Layering Circles Dies. I chose one of the new In Colors, Rococo Rose, for the flower and ribbon.

Here’s all the details if you would like to make this card:

  • Card Base: Crumb Cake Cardstock 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
  • Layer 1: Rococo Rose Cardstock 4″ x 5 1/4″.
  • Layer 2: Whisper White 3 3/4″ x 5. Stamp design in crumb cake in lower right.
  • DSP Layer:  3 1/2″ x 4″.  Adhere to Whisper White.
  • Wrap a piece of Rococo Rose Ribbon around the white layer and adhere on back.  Add ribbon bow to the card with Glue Dots.
  • Stamp sentiment and leaves in Crumb Cake ink and flower in Rococo Rose ink on Whisper White cardstock. Cut sentiment with Layering Circles Die.  Fussy cut leaves and flower.
  • Use Layering Circles to cut Whisper White and Crumb Cake circles.  Adhere together with Snail Adhesive.  Attach to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Embellish the envelope with a 2 1/4″ x 6″ piece of DSP.  Trim around the flap with Paper Snips.

A Trip Down Daisy Lane

The other day I posted a set of daisy cards showcasing the new In Colors.  If you missed that post you can view it HERE.  Before I announce the winners of those cards I want to share some cards that were inspired by my stamped envelopes the other day.

Stampin' Up! Daisy Lane In Color thank you note card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

After I stamped the envelopes the other day I feel in love with those daisies and decided they deserved a card of their own. I used the new Daisy Lane Stamp Set (available June 4th) and the Daisy Delight Stamp Set.

Stampin Up Daisy Lane and Daisy Delight Stamp Sets - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love how these two stamp sets compliment each other. And the Daisy Punch works with both sets! A NEW medium Daisy Punch to go with the Daisy Lane Stamp Set will be available when the annual catalog debuts on June 4th.  You’ll be able to purchase the set as a bundle and save 10%! What you won’t be able to purchase come June is the Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes I used for today’s cards! They are retiring and available while supplies last. I love these little note cards!  They are perfect for tucking in gifts or giving with a plate of cookies, etc. You get 20 note cards & envelopes in a pack! I always love to decorate the envelopes to coordinate with my cards. Here’s a close up of each…in the 2019-2021 In Colors.

This is what I call simple stamping! I used the Stamparatus for perfect alignment every time!

I added a bow using the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread (from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack available June 4th) and I was done – quick & easy! It would be great to make a bunch of these to have on hand to give out when you go through the drive thru for your morning coffee, visit the doctor’s office, stay at a hotel, etc.  I just recently had surgery and I can not say enough about how wonderful the nursing staff was at the hospital! I am so thankful for their help and support! I will be sending them thank you cards for sure! I was hoping to be able to get enough blog posts scheduled in advance so I could have surgery and be back to blogging before anyone knew; however it seems that won’t be the case.  If you’ve been following my blog you know I’ve been trying to avoid surgery the past 15 months after dislocating and fracturing my elbow.  It has been a long process with lots of physical therapy but it seems there was more nerve and ligament damage than anticipated. I am hoping I’m finally on the road to recovery!  My daughter will be home from college next week and I know she will be a great help!  I’ll be putting her to work getting product shares ready. *More information about my “Suite” Product Shares coming soon!

And now for the news you’ve been waiting for…

From the comments the other day it seems that Terracotta Tile is the favorite In Color.  I appreciate everyone who took the time to comment.  I always love to read what you have to say! Congratulations to the following winners…. Kim Johnson, Claudia Piegdon, Chris R., Linda, Mary Ann H!  Email me (j.stark@myactv.net) your address and I will put your card in the mail.  Enjoy the new In Colors!

Have a great day!
