Hoppy Birthday

Stampin Up So Hoppy Together birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I’m still making birthday cards!  March is my busiest month for birthdays!  I’m not a fan of real frogs (brings back memories of summers camping on Cape Cod when the boys would throw frogs in our inflatable boat); however, this little guy is stinkin’ adorable! I colored “Hoppy” with Stampin’ Blends and cut him out with the coordinating dies. (*The dies sold out fast but you can fussy cut him if you don’t have the dies). I popped him up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the “reed” (from the Home to Roost Stamp Set) on Whisper White cardstock then decided I wanted to add some color.  I squeezed some Pool Party ink in the lid of the pad and added several drops of water from my Aqua Painter. Then I did a quick wash on the card. I like the subtle color. Normally I would have used Shimmery White cardstock if I was going to watercolor but this worked fine.  It did curl a little but I just used extra adhesive on the back so it would lay flat.

The stamped sentiment comes from the So Hoppy Together Stamp Set and the new More Than Words Stamp Set. Both of these stamp sets are only available until March 31st (while supplies last). You can see all the products I used in the list below.  Simply click on any of the images and you’ll be directed to my online store.  Here’s the details and measurements.

  • Card Base is Thick Whisper White that measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.
  • Layer 1 is 3 3/4 x 5 Powder Pink.
  • Layer 2 (with stamped and die cut images) measures 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.
  • Stamp grass with Lemon Lime Twist ink.
  • Watercolor wash the background with Pool Party ink using Aqua Painter.
  • Stamp sentiment and frog in Memento Black ink. Cut Hoppy from scrap piece and adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Color Frog with Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Combo.
  • Cut frog, flowers, and lily pad using Hop Around Framelits Dies (or fussy cut).
  • Adhere die cut pieces. Pop Frog up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Decorate the envelope flap with a piece of Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper.

Time to Sale-A-Brate Friendship with the Pals Blog Hop

Blog Hop Badge February 2019

Welcome to the Pals’ February blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here because it’s “Time to Sale-A-Brate”! Our Design Team created projects using Sale-A-Bration items to inspire you. 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 friend card and gift idea using Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and Part of My Story Stamp Set - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Today I’m “Sale-A-Brating” friendship! One of the best things about being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is all the new friendships I have made over the past several years while sharing my joy of stamping!

My card and gift uses three of my favorite items from the Sale-A-Bration catalog…the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, the gorgeous Organdy Ribbon (from the combo pack), and an awesome sentiment stamp set, Part of My Story.  Here’s a peek at each of these items.   (Did I mention you can get all of these for FREE?!!)

I love to create cards and gifts to match.  This gift was quick & easy to put together for a special friend. Gather some rocks, tree branches, and some store bought moss and put it all in a jar. (The rocks hold the branches in place.)  I fussy cut the large butterflies from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and attached them to the branches with glue dots.  This gift will last much longer than a bouquet of flowers! Choose the butterflies that match your home decor or stamp your own using the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set from the Occasions catalog!

For the coordinating card I used another pattern from the Botancial Butterfly DSP for my background.  I used the Seasonal Layers Thinlits to cut the branch and then fussy cut another large butterfly from the DSP.  I punched the small butterfly from another pattern of the DSP using the Butterfly Duet Punch.  (I love how you can use the butterfly punch with the coordinating Butterfly Gala Stamp Set or the Designer Series Paper.  More bang for your buck!!)

I popped up the butterfly layer, the larger butterfly, and the sentiment layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment from Part of My Story can be used for many occasions! (Check back tomorrow to see how I used it for my Valentine’s Day cards! Make sure you subscribe to my blog to get an email each time I post.)

The finishing touch was adding the beautiful bow made with the organdy ribbon!  The best part about this project is I got the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack, and Part of My Story Stamp Set for FREE! You can too with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration (now through March 31st).

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Happy New Year! I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday season. I got back last night from visiting my son, family, and friends in Massachusetts. We had a wonderful time but it’s always so hard to say good-bye!  My daughter flew back to Georgia this afternoon and I went back to school.  (At least my sweet little ones always bring a smile to my face!) January always seemed like a let down after the holidays until I started Stampin’ Up! Now I look forward to it because SALE-A-BRATION time is here!!

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!

March News!

My husband loves March!  I’d like to believe it is because it’s my birthday month but, truth be told, I know it’s because of March Madness with basketball!  LOL I happen to love March too but, not for basketball!

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.

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.

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.
