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!

In Color Daisy Cards

Stampin' Up! Daisy Lane 2019-2021 In Color note card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
2019-2021 In Colors

I hope these simple note cards make you smile! I know they make me smile and they are super easy and fun to make.  I used the new Daisy Lane stamp set I got for FREE at OnStage.

Stampin Up Daisy Lane stamp set - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I am super excited as this stamp set has a coordinating daisy punch that is a little smaller than our current daisy punch I used on today’s cards.  I love how both stamp sets and punches coordinate! These stamps and punches work for any occasion cards.  Who wouldn’t love a daisy to brighten their day?! Here’s a closeup look at each card.

The base of these cards are Whisper White note cards. (Love them!) I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock 3 1/4 x 4 3/4 to layer on top.  First, I cut the scallop circle using the Layering Circles Framelits. Then I stamped the sentiment below and embossed it with the Subtles Embossing Folder.  Adhere it to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals or Foam Adhesive Strips.  I stamped the daisies with the In Color inks on In Color cardstock and punched out with the Daisy Punch. I adhered two daisies together with a Stampin’ Dimensional and used the third daisy to punch the center with 1/2″ Circle punch.  I chose to sponge the edges to add dimension then adhered it to the center of the daisy with a glue dot.  I punched the leaves out of Soft Sea Foam using the leaf punch and adhered to the back of the daisies with glue dots then adhered it inside the scallop circle. Quick & easy! I stamped the envelopes to coordinate.

Butterfly Gala Note Cards

The Butterfly Gala Bundle is one of my absolute favorite bundles in the Occasions Catalog! I love stamp sets with a matching punch and this bundle can be used for many different occasions!  Obviously I’m not the only one who loves this bundle as Stampin’ Up! sold out of their initial supply quickly!  I am happy to report they are back in stock so if you didn’t get it before, you’ll want to grab it now while you can! I made two quick & easy note cards that showcase this stamp set and punch!

Stampin Up Butterfly Gala simple thank you note card ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Butterfly Gala Stamp Set has 4 different sets of butterflies as well as solid images to add color to these beauties.  There’s also several sentiments which makes this set check off my #1 requirement…versatility!

Stampin Up Butterfly Gala stamp set - for inspiration and ordering information visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

You can choose to do a little Two-Step stamping to add color to your butterflies or color them with Stampin’ Markers or Blends.  You can even watercolor which makes for endless possibilities! I colored mine using Stampin’ Blends.

I love how this stamp set coordinates with the Butterfly Duet Punch.  You can stamp and punch both butterflies at once!

Stampin Up Butterfly Duet Punch - for ideas and ordering information visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I make a lot of thank you cards and the Stampin’ Up! note cards and envelopes are the perfect size for a handwritten note or stamped sentiment. I added a little Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper to the front, stamped the envelopes to match and these cards were complete in no time at all!

Varied Vases In Color Note Cards

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%!

Stampin Up Varied Vases Stamp Set and matching punch - Purchase as a bundle and save 10%! Visit www.juststampin.com for inspiration and ordering. Jeanie Stark StampinUp

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.

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

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.)

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

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.

Just Add Color Guest Stamper

My daughter, Ariane, is on the board of her Hall Council at Georgia Tech. When she was home for spring break she wanted to make some thank you cards for the people who helped out throughout the year. Just Add Color Designer Series Paper was the perfect choice for these “housing” thank you cards.

Stampin Up thank you card idea using All Things Thanks stamp set and Just Add Color Specialty Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Ariane used Stampin’ Blends to color the different houses and then fussy cut each one out.  She loved using the new Stamparatus which made adding the sentiment a breeze!  Here’s a few photos.

The Whisper White note cards & envelopes made putting this project together a breeze.  The cards are prescored and ready to go. Ariane used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the houses to her cards.  Here’s a look at all 13 of her colorful cards!

Thank You Note Cards for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #44

Stampin Up True Gentleman thank you card idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUp

img_4938

Happy Thursday!  I am excited to share this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  Do you want to know why? Of course you do!  It’s because I designed this week’s challenge board and there’s a hidden message in the elements! Can you find it?  My previous challenge boards have been ABC boards but this time I thought I would change it up. Here’s this week’s challenge. I hope you will pick 3 and play!

img_1510-1

When I designed this challenge board I had no idea what I would create. I didn’t realize this was going to be the fastest and easiest challenge to do (In My Humble Opinion)! I created tic tac toe every way by using all 9 elements on my card!

Stampin Up True Gentleman thank you card idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Its hard to imagine this clean & simple card used all 9 elements! Did you know Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Color Revamp has navy in the neutral color family? This card came together so fast I decided to make another and another and another and ending up making a little gift set.

Stampin Up True Gentleman thank you card idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My husband often asks me to make him thank you cards and this set makes a great gift for the men in your life.

I used the Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes and the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper.  The DSP measures 2 7/8 x 4 3/8 and is layered on a piece of 3 x 4 1/2 cardstock. The layered panel and the sentiment layer are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Here’s a look at the other 3 cards.

Stampin Up True Gentleman thank you card idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Stampin Up True Gentleman thank you card idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Stampin Up True Gentleman thank you card idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUpI cut 1/2 strips of the DSP to make a matching envelope for each card.Stampin Up True Gentleman thank you card idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I  made the note card holder from a sheet of 12 x 12 DSP. There’s no cutting or adhesive needed!  Just score, fold, and tuck!

Diane Barnes posted a great tutorial how to make these.  You can download her instructions HERE. I adapted mine to hold more cards.  I followed her instructions except I scored it 2, 5 3/4, 6 1/4 and 10 on one side then turned and scored the other side at 2 1/2 and 8 1/4. It holds all 4 note cards and envelopes.

I love the True Gentleman Suite! I usually struggle with masculine cards but the Tailored Tag Punch and True Gentleman Designer Series Paper make it easy. The Navy Corduroy Ribbon is retiring but the punch will carry over. (*There is a beautiful new stamp set to go with it for both men and women in the new catty!)

Now that you see how easy it is to create using this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge Board, I hope you will create something to share.  You could be the next guest designer! Make sure you visit the Tic Tac Toe Challenge to see what the other designers created this week!

Have a wonderful day!

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.

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.

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

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!!

T is for Tutti-Frutti Treats

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today it is all about family, friends, and fruit with the Tutti -frutti Suite.

Growing up I would go blueberry picking with my dad and 5 siblings.  My dad would tie buckets around our waste so both hands were free for faster picking! My mom would  bake homemade pie and all kinds of blueberry treats. YUM! I’m not much of a pie baker but I do enjoy making homemade breads and jam.  Strawberry season will be here before you know it and I love to make strawberry jam! The Tutti-Frutti suite makes it quick & easy to create tags and gift enclosures to go with homemade goodies (or store bought favorites)!

Stampin Up Tutti-frutti hello friend note card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This little gift card is for Sister Corda’s roommate.  After Sister Corda passed away, I have been spending Monday evenings with her roommate.  We chat, have dinner together, and watch a few episodes of Longmire on Netflix. Sister Al loves blueberry jam and enjoys some with her bagel every morning.  I bought some of my favorite Stonewall Kitchen Wild Maine Blueberry Jam to give to her.

Stampin Up Tutti-frutti hello friend 3 x 3 note card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love to make note cards to go with gifts. To make this simple note card start with a 3 x 6 piece of cardstock and score it at 3″.  I added a layer of Night of Navy cardstock that is a 2 3/4″ square. Then I added a piece of  2 x 2 5/8  DSP and some gingham ribbon. The sentiment is from the Fruit Basket Stamp Set, cut out with the new 1 1/8 Scallop Circle Punch, and layered on a 1 1/4 punched Night of Navy circle. I popped the sentiment up with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  Quick & easy!

Here’s a quick 1 minute video showing how to make another quick & easy 3 x 3 card using products from the Tutti-frutti Suite!

I will be heading to Hartford, Connecticut in two weeks for Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage convention. I can’t wait to get together with “my people”!  Six of us rented a historic home just outside of Hartford so we could be together for a little extended vacation.  We are planning to stamp, shop, sightsee, and I’m sure chat until the wee hours of the morning.  It is always so much fun when we get together! I made these little gifts using the Tutti-frutti Designer Series Paper for my “Stampin’ Sisters”.

Stampin Up Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I got this idea from Sam Donald (Pootles.co.uk).  I changed mine up a bit and used coordinating DSP rather than washi tape. I bought several different fruit pens and had so much fun making these that I just couldn’t stop!  I wanted to try different color combinations and ribbons. I ordered the fruit pens from Amazon.  I love the way they coordinate with our DSP! I love the pens with the bauble fruit charms (above) but I also love the way the DSP and ribbon pictured below can serve double duty as a  bookmark. Two gifts in one!

I love how they turned out! For the first set of pens (with the charms) I used a smidge smaller than 2 x 8 cardstock, 1 3/4 x 6 DSP  in the center, and (2) 1 3/4 x 3/4 strips on the top and bottom. These fit in Stampin’ Up!’s  2 x 8 Cellophane Bags.  You get 50 sturdy bags for just $3.00!

Stampin Up Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used a sightly smaller piece of cardstock for the other pens (a smidge less than 2 x 7) and cut 3/4″ off the top of the cellophane bags.  The DSP measures the same. I used the 1/4″ hole punch to punch an opening for the ribbon. I fussy cut the fruit from the DSP.  (You could stamp and punch fruit using the Fruit Basket stamp set and Itty Bitty Punch Pack.) I used glue dots to adhere the fruit pieces to the cellophane bags.

Would you like to receive one of these Tutti-Frutti pens? I am sending one to everyone who places an online order of $50 or more with me in March.  It’s my “party favor” and will be included in my birthday party thank you kit for ordering this month! I appreciate each and every order and love sending little thank you gifts and card kits to show my appreciation. I will also be giving one away to a random winner on my blog.  Leave a comment sharing something you enjoy doing with friends or family members and you could be the lucky winner.

Yesterday I showcased all 7 suites from the Occasions catalog and asked my readers to share which one was their favorite suite.  If you missed that post you can view it HERE. From the comments it looks like Petal Passion is the most popular for it’s versatility and great sentiments!  I enjoyed reading all the wonderful comments about the other suites as well.  Like me, some of you liked several and have a hard time choosing a favorite!

I have been making so many projects lately using the products in the Tutti-Frutti Suite! You can view previous projects I have shared HERE or HERE.

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

Have a Terrific Day!
