Q is for Questions and Quick Tips

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. The catalog and brochures offer ideas, quick tips, and techniques! Today I decided to have a little fun and send you on a scavenger hunt through the catalog and brochures to find answers to some questions. (*I will post a link to the Sale-A-Bration brochures below. You can access the catalog from the menu bar on my blog.  If you are reading this in your email, click on the title to go to my blog.)

I always loved scavenger hunts and remember fun times racing around the neighborhood with brown paper bags seeing who could be first to find the items on the list. Well, you don’t need to run around! You can grab a cup of coffee (or glass of wine) and enjoy browsing the catalog.  Look for answers to the questions below, copy and paste the questions with your answers, and email them to me (j.stark@myactv.net).  I will pick a random winner to receive a Sale-A-Bration surprise!

Let’s see how well you do with these 10 questions…

  1.  What is “a little cheesy” in the Occasions catalog?
  2. Finish this sentiment from a stamp set featured in the Occasions catalog: “Life is beautiful ___ __ __”
  3. What new product allows you to create unique backgrounds with coloring techniques?
  4. I hope you didn’t miss this quick tip in the catalog…What should you do when stamping on vellum to prevent smearing?
  5. What color watercolor pencils are exclusive to the Lots of Happy kit (and are not available in our set of watercolor pencils)?
  6. Which stamp set answers this question: What happens if someone forgets your birthday?
  7. What new item can you use to “frame your art”?
  8. What new item can you use to make an interactive card?
  9. Here’s another quick tip answered in the catalog…How should you store Stampin’ Blends (and other Stampin’ Up! markers)?
  10. What products can you get for FREE with a $100 purchase?

Have fun! You have until Sunday, March 18th (midnight) to complete the Scavenger Hunt.  Email me with “Scavenger Hunt” in the subject.  Answers and winner will be announced on Monday, 19th.

**Last chance to get my “Just Stampin’ Card kit and 3D Project Buffet” to go this month. You will get 3 card kits and a 3D project kit. For more details and ordering information click HERE.

L is for Lots of Lavender

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today I’m showcasing the Lots of Lavender Stamp Set.  You can earn this stamp set for FREE with an order of $50 or more this month.

Stampin Up Lots of Lavender stamp set - Free with a qualifying purchase through March 31st. Visit www.juststampin.com Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This is a photopolymer stamp set which makes two-step stamping a breeze or you can choose to color it with pencils, markers, or watercolor. I chose to use ink and blender pen to color today.  It was quick & easy to make this clean & simple note card.

Stampin Up Lots of Lavender narrow note card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the new Narrow Note Cards & envelopes from the Occasions catalog. How cute is this card?! The flower bunch fits perfectly on the card and I love the long and narrow envelopes too! Lavender symbolizes grace and calmness. I have lots of it growing in my garden.  I like to dry it and give to people. This set makes the perfect note card to give with flowers.

Stampin Up Lots of Lavender narrow note card gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the narrow note card to make a second card for today, a joy fold.

Stampin Up Lots of Lavender joy fold celebrate card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The note card made this fun fold even easier to put together! I stamped the image on the back of the note card (so it opens on the left side) with Basic Black Archival Ink and colored with my blender pen. I know I’ve mentioned this before but, you don’t want to pick up ink from the pad with blender pens (or Aqua Painter).  You should squeeze your pad before you open it to get some of the ink on the lid and use the ink in the lid to pick up color. You could also just put a few drops of reinker in the lid.

I cut 7/8″ from my standard card base then embossed the front with the new Petal Pair embossing folder. This is one of the two embossing folders you get in the set. I also embossed celebrate (from Celebrations Duo) on a 1 x 5 1/2 piece of cardstock and adhered it on the left against the fold. I centered the note card and adhered the back on the inside of the card and folded the flap in the front.  I tied the beautiful Whisper White organza ribbon to help keep the note card closed.  It’s easy to slide out to open.

This is such a fun and easy card to make! Purple is my daughter’s favorite color and she gives us many reasons to celebrate! I love the other little flower in this set too!  It makes a nice accent for inside the card or on the envelope. So pretty!

G is for Glimmer Paper

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series features products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today I’m showcasing the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper (and more). This is a no-mess way to add glitter accents! This paper is embedded with small pieces of glitter. Glitter won’t brush off or flake off so there’s no clean up. You get 24 6×6 glittered sheets: 8 each of 3 colors (Iridescent, light green, turquoise)

Stampin Up Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper - For inspiration and ordering information visit my blog www.juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This paper is so much fun to add accents for a little touch of sparkle to any project.  I punched balloons to go with the Party Pandas for this fun fold birthday card inspired by a card Linda Heller shared that was designed by Janet Munden.

Stampin Up Party Pandas Double Z Fun Fold birthday card idea with Glimmer Paper and Bubbles & Fizz DSP - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Party Pandas is the most popular Sale-A-Bration stamp set! You can get it for FREE with a qualifying order through March 31.

Party Pandas Stamp Set - Free during Sale-A-Bration

I love these adorable pandas! They remind me of Tian Tian, Mei Xiang and Bei Bei. I live in Maryland just an hour outside Washington D.C. where you can visit the giant pandas at the National Zoo.   My Pre-K students and I even watch these giant pandas right in our classroom through Smithsonian’s National Zoo’s Panda Cams. Click on the link below if you want to see what Tian Tian, Mei Xiang and Bei Bei are up to today. (Be forewarned this could get addictive!)

Earlier today I snapped these photos as I watched them eat their lunch. (Now you know how I really spend my day.  LOL)

I love how this card opens for an upright version of a Double Z-Fold card.

Stampin Up Party Pandas Double Z Fun Fold birthday card idea with Glimmer Paper and Bubbles & Fizz DSP - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s what it looks like from the side. You can see how it gets it’s Double Z-Fold name.

Stampin Up Party Pandas Double Z Fun Fold birthday card idea with Glimmer Paper and Bubbles & Fizz DSP - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This is a fun card to make.  It is a little wider than others I have shared so here’s the measurements:

Lemon Lime Twist: 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2 and 8 1/4.

Basic Black: 3 1/4 x 10, scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2.

Whisper White: 3 x 4 1/4 for top piece, (2) 1 x 2 1/2 for bottom pieces.

Bubbles & Fizz DSP: 1 x 4 1/4 for top piece, (2) 1 x 2 1/2 for bottom pieces.

You can click HERE to see another Double Z-Fold card I shared with a photo tutorial how to assemble.

Did you notice the colors of my balloons? Are you wondering where I got the Calypso Coral Glimmer Paper? Here’s a cool tip…You can make any color glimmer paper you want with the Iridescent Glimmer Paper, reinkers, and an Aqua Painter.  Just add a few drops of reinker in the lid of your ink pad and use the Aqua Painter to color the Iridescent Glimmer Paper. (*You never want to pick up ink directly from your pad using the Aqua Painter or Blender Pens.) You want to make sure to go in one direction so you don’t ruin the bristles on your Aqua Painter.  Let it dry before cutting or punching.  Now you can add a little glimmer to any project!

Here’s another look at today’s card and matching envelope.

D is for DSP

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today is all about one of my new favorite Designer Series Paper (aka DSP), The Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper. You can get this paper pack for FREE with a qualifying order.  You get 12 sheets of 12 x 12 Spring-inspired paper with foil designs (3 each of 4 single-sided designs in Gold foil, Rose Gold foil. and Silver foil).

Stampin Up Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper - Free during Sale-A-Bration with a qualifying order - Visit my blog www.juststampin.com -Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I have been enjoying some “coloring therapy” lately.  I love my Stampin’ Blends and used them to color the beautiful designs on the DSP.

Stampin Up Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper Birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Both of these cards showcase simple layouts that you can use again and again with different DSP and sentiments.

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics stamp set and Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper Birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The sentiment on this card from Butterfly Basics.  It is so versatile and can be used for birthday, Easter, Mother’s Day, Get Well, etc. I like the Powder Pink with the Rose Gold foil.  The DSP measures 3 1/4 x 3 1/2 and the layer is 1/8″more.  I used the Layering Ovals Framelits to cut and layer my stamped sentiment.  I colored the flower from the DSP using Old Olive and Pink Pirouette Blends.  I fussy cut it out and adhered with Stampin Dimensionals. Clean & Simple!

Stampin Up Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper Birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My next card showcases the other two patterns from this DSP as well as my favorite dies from Sale-A-Bration, Celebrate You.

Stampin Up Celebrate You Thinlits and Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper All Occasion Celebrate card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This is another clean & simple card design. It’s just 2 pieces of DSP ( 2 x 4) with a ribbon in the middle to cover the seam. (You could add a banner instead of the ribbon.)  I love the Celebrate word die as it can be used for many different occasions.  The silver foil die ties in with the foil in the DSP as well as the metallic ribbon. I added a couple of vellum punched leaves behind the sentiment.

Stampin Up Celebrate You Thinlits and Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper All Occasion Celebrate card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the Pool Party Blends to color the leaves to tie in with the card base.

Stampin Up Celebrate You Thinlits and Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper All Occasion Celebrate card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s another version of this card. It could be for a wedding, shower, engagement, or anniversary. I added the die cut heart from Sunshine Wishes Thinlits and a couple of metallic enamel hearts. Quick & easy!

Previously, I shared some cards I colored using the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper (another favorite of mine!). Click HERE to view.

Here’s a peek at all the new Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Catalog.

It’s no secret that I love DSP! I actually did a whole alphabet series on DSP! Here are links to several posts I did that show how to cut 6 x 6 and 12 x 12 DSP to make the most use of your paper. *The first link takes you to my first alphabet series, ABC’s of Stampin’ (which is a great series for anyone new to stamping). It also shows how I organize my DSP.

D is for Designer Series Paper

B is for Blooms & Bliss DSP

D is for Dapper Denim DSP

O is for One Sheet Wonder with DSP

Y is for Shades of Yellow

Blossoming Basket for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #36

Stampin Up Blossoming Basket Bundle All Occasion card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Today’s card features the new Blossoming Basket Bundle which is FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a qualifying order! This is such a versatile set as it can be used for just about any occasion…birthday, sympathy, get well, thank you…or just a card to give someone with a bouquet (or basket) of flowers to let them know you’re thinking of them.

I stamped the basket on Whisper White with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I used Stampin’ Blends (Stampin’ Up!’s premier alcohol markers) to color. Oh what fun it is to color with these markers!  It is so easy and it amazes me every time! It makes me feel like an artist the way they add depth and shading. I realize these markers are a bit of an investment but trust me, it will be money well spent!  You don’t need to start out with all of them.  Get Old Olive and one or two of your favorite colors along with the Color Lifter to start.  I do recommend buying the combo packs so you have the light and dark shades of each color. If you want to see more projects I’ve shared using the Stampin’ Blends Click HERE or HERE.

I wanted to be able to use this card for any occasion so I only inked up part of the sentiment (for you).  That leaves me free to use any sentiment on the inside depending on occasion.  I often make cards and leave the inside blank until I know who the recipient will be.  I can’t wait to get my Stamparatus this week!  I will be stamping a bunch of these baskets to color.  Research has shown how therapeutic coloring can be (which is probably why adult coloring has become the rage).   It is definitely my therapy of choice! (Not that I don’t appreciate the progress I have made due to my Physical Therapists but, coloring is pain free!)

The other feature of this bundle is the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. WOW!  Not only is that a mouthful but it really is dynamic! It adds so much texture to a project! This is a thick embossing folder so you only use one clear plate instead of two when making your “sandwich” for the Big Shot. I embossed the front of my Crumb Cake card base. Here’s a close up so you can really see the texture!

Check out this short video from Stampin’ Up! showcasing this bundle.

I knew I had to have this stamp set and embossing folder the minute I saw it! I love baskets and have a collection in my craft room where I store many of my Stampin’ Up supplies to keep them organized and handy.

This card would have been great for my alphabet series…B is for Blossoming Basket Bundle and Blends; however, I made it using elements from this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge! I went right down the middle with butterfly, green, twine.  It really is fun choosing elements from the board to create!  I hope you will give it a try and play along!  You can click on the board to see what the rest of the design team created and to share your project.

I love doing my alphabet series and I look forward to sharing my favorites with you from A to Z!
