Let’s Celebrate…Blog Candy Winner and More!

Happy 4th of July! We watched Hamilton last night (I highly recommend it!!!) and it really put me in the Patriotic spirit! I love celebrating this holiday for so many reasons! This year is a little different celebration but I’m determined to make it a fun family celebration none the less! Usually we would be celebrating with 20 or more of my family in Massachusetts with a traditional New England clamboil! Yum!! (I am really missing my fresh seafood this summer!!!!) Even though it will be just the three of us (quarantined at home) this year, there’s two traditions that we keep no matter where we celebrate…a flag cake and sparklers! While my daughter baked and decorated the cake this year, I made table favors.

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers and Stitched Stars table favors for 4th of July - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Sparklers are so much fun for any age! These tags are quick & easy to make with the Stitched Stars Dies and some red, white, and blue!

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers and Stitched Stars table favors for 4th of July - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here”s the details:

Measurements

  • Real Red: 2 x 4, 3/4 x 2 1/4 strip for sentiment
  • Whisper White: 1 3/4 x 3 3/4
  • Pacific Point: 2 1/4 x 4 1/4 to cut stars, 7/8 x 2 1/4

Directions

  1. Adhere Whisper White to Real Red. Punch 1/4 hole at the top and bottom.
  2. Cut Stitched Star Die and layer on white strip. Slide sparkler through the holes and through the top and bottom of the stars to hold the die in place. (No adhesive needed!)
  3. Stamp sentiment from Celebrate Sunflowers with Versamark on Real Red strip and heat emboss with white embossing powder. Adhere Pacific Point layer then adhere on stars with Stampin’ Dimensionals. (These keep the die in place.)
  4. Thread a 6″ piece of Real Red Stitched Grosgrain ribbon (from Playful Pets Combo Pack) through the hole at the bottom and tie a simple knot. Adhere leftover stars from die with mini glue dots on top of ribbon and sentiment.

Did you notice the candy cup in the photo above? The Mini Coffee Cup is a sneak peek from the Holiday Mini Catalog which will debut next month! It’s part of the Heartwarming Hugs Suite and has dies to cut wraps to go around the cups, a stamp set with lots of sentiments and images to decorate the cups, embossing folders, DSP, ribbons, embellishments, and even a Mini Coffee Cup Carrier.  I’ll be sharing more about all that later! For now, lets take a look at this Patriotic cup which holds some red, white, and blue M&M’s.

Stampin' Up! Heartwarming Hugs Mini coffee cup Patriotic candy favor - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This is another simple project that’s quick & easy! I cut 6 red strips measuring 3/4 x 3 1/2 and adhered them around the cup. I used the Warm Wraps Dies (available in August) to cut the wrap around the bottom. I punched the stars and added those around the bottom with mini glue dots then added a rhinestone to each. I filled a cellophane bag with M&M’s and tied it with the stitched red grosgrain ribbon. I cut a red circle using the largest Layering Circles Dies for the base. These would make great gifts for friends, neighbors, or veterans!

Here’s a look at some other 4th of July and Patriotic projects I’ve shared starting with my very first blog post from 4 years ago today !(*You can click on the image to see the original post.)

It’s called a “poke cake” and it’s a white cake with strawberry jello which makes red and white stripes on the inside.  The topping is whip cream! If you look closely and count there’s exactly 50 blueberries (stars) and 13 stripes on the cake. We take our flag cake seriously around here!  LOL

Time for Tags and A Few More of My Retiring Favorites

I’ve been sharing projects showcasing some of my retiring favorites. If you missed my posts for This Little Piggy or The Honey Bee Bundle, you can view them HERE or HERE.

Today I’m showcasing a few more of my retiring favorites: the Stitched Labels Dies, Kraft Pillow Boxes and Time for Tags Stamp Set. I used all three of these to make a Quick & easy gift for any occasion!

Stampin' Up! Time for Tags and Stitched Labels Dies Pillow Box idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Time for Tags Stamp Set has 5 different tags as well as different sentiments to add to them. You can color the tags with your Stampin’ Blends, Watercolor Pencils, or ink and a blender pen. This is a versatile stamp set that can be used for all kinds of tags or cards.

The stamp set coordinates with the Timeless Labels Punch for quick & easy punching. I cut out the Stitched Labels Die to add a layer to pop up the tag. Then I took the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and looped it through the right side hole and then around the pillow box. I put one ribbon end through the hole on the other side and then tied a bow. So simple and pretty!!!

Any one of the tags could be added for a quick & easy gift. Pop in a gift card with some chocolate for a birthday, a little bib or booties for a new baby, etc. Hooray for You is great for graduations, new job, retirement, etc. And Something For You can be used anytime!

W is for Wine (and a Wonderful Weekend)

Welcome to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! I will be wrapping up this series this week. I can’t wait to share what’s new!! I spent the weekend with some of my stamping friends in Hartford, Connecticut at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Convention. We had so much fun! We won lots of prizes and played with new products that will be coming out in the new January – June 2020 Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure.  I’ll share photos and more later this week. Lets get to today’s projects.

Throughout this series I have been sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC! I always like to have a few extra gifts on hand for hostess gifts and unexpected events (like when my husband comes home and says he needs gifts for his coworkers for tomorrow.) My friends and I like to enjoy a glass of wine when we get together so I always have a few bottles on hand. I like to dress up wine bottles with beautiful handmade tags.

Stampin' Up! Wine Tag idea made with Cheers Die and Christmastime is Here Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the Cheers Die with some of the products from the Christmastime is Here Suite (Roses Dies, Gold Glitter Enamel Dots, and Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper) to make this tag.  I love the elegant look with the Gold Foil on the Mossy Meadow! I chose the Mossy Meadow and Cherry Cobbler cardstock because they match the wine bottle so well!

Stampin' Up! Wine Tag idea made with Cheers Die and Christmastime is Here Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s the details to make this simple wine tag.

Materials & Measurements

  • Mossy Meadow:  3 x 8 1/2 scored at 3″.  Center and punch a circle in the 3″ section using the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch.
  • Gold Foil: Cut Cheers Die and 2 design elements from Roses Dies, punch leaf
  • Cherry Cobbler: 3 x 3
  • Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper: 3 x 2 3/4, scrap to fussy cut flower *Adhere flower and gold foil leaf with Stampin’ Dimensional.

*Tip: When adhering intricate dies I use the silicone craft sheet and apply liquid glue with a sponge dauber.

If you prefer chocolate to wine here’s another idea.

Stampin' Up! Tidings All Around Wine Tag idea made with Cheers Die and Seasonal Wreath Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I stopped at the Lindt Chocolate Factory in Carlisle, PA on my way home from Hartford this weekend. It’s like walking in to chocolate heaven! I bought this “champagne” bottle for a Yankee Swap gift exchange we have every year. (Chocolate is always a big hit!)

I made this tag using the Tidings All Around Stamp Set with the All-Around Wreath Dies and Cheers Die. I sandwiched a piece of vellum between the wreath layers so you wouldn’t see the candy through the wreath.  I looped the ribbon and adhered it on the back of the wreath with some mini glue dots. I added some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots around the wreath and adhered a bow on top.

So which do you prefer…wine or chocolate? Here’s another look at both tags.

Let’s have some fun! I wonder if we watch some of the same tv shows.  Here’s a quote from one of my favorite series, “I drink wine and I know things.Who said that? What’s the name of the series? Leave a comment below and if you get both questions correct I will put your name in to a random drawing to win one of these wine tags.

Have a wonderful week!
