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.

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!

I have used the pillow boxes for so many different occasions: table favors, Advent boxes, a birthday banner, gift card holder, sweet treats, etc. They are so versatile and a great deal at just $5 for a set of 10! Click on the photos below to view the original posts.

You Can Never Have Too Many Purses

Last week I posted some purses and cards I made with the Everything is Rosy Product Medley (as well as a special offer)! If you missed that post, you can view it HERE. I have been making a bunch of those purses because, after all, you can never have too many purses right?! This time I created some purses with cardstock instead of DSP.

I used two different embossing folders on these and love them both! Luckily, the Parisian Flourish embossing folders is sticking around for awhile; however, the 3D Tufted Embossing Folder is retiring and is AWSL.  I couldn’t resist making a fancy purse with pearls on the tufted one!  Navy and white is such a classic purse!

I love these little pockets you can add to them too! It’s like an added little surprise when you tuck a little note in the purse pocket.

Stampin' Up! Parisian Flourish All Dressed Up Dies Purse ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The reason I am on such a roll making purses is because I have been having a little fun during this pandemic….when I just NEED to get out, my husband, daughter, and I drive around dropping off surprises in mailboxes. We grab the Clorox wipes & gloves and it has turned in to a fun little family activity. I just love bringing smiles to others.  I want to see how many I can make for Mother’s Day surprises. I am filling them with Ghirardelli chocolates, a note card, and these adorable lipstick pens I bought from Amazon. (Boy do I love online shopping now more than ever!!!) The 3 x 9 Printed Gusseted Cellophane Bags are the finishing touch to wrap it all up for a pretty presentation.

I can see making these purses for birthdays, wedding showers, and hostess gifts throughout the year. These can hold five 3 x 3 note cards & envelopes and would be a nice little gift for someone. You can also tuck in a gift card! The All Dressed Up Dies really are a good investment. You don’t have to buy the bundle, you can just get the dies. (I do own both and really like the sentiments and flowers in the stamp set. It’s great for sending cards to girly girls!) I feel like I’ve already got my money’s worth with all the gifts I’ve made for Mother’s Day! Here’s a look at what’s included in the set.

Stampin' Up! Dressed To Impress Bundle - for inspiration and ordering information, visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

You can cut 4 of the buckles at once because they include 2 dies.  Same for the buttons. You do need to cut 2 of the purse; however, if you use DSP you can cut both at once and it still does a great job with scoring and stitching. You will need to cut twice if you use cardstock though. They really go together fast. Just fold on the score lines, add Tear & tape or Liquid glue to secure the sides and bottom and you’re done.  If you purchase the dies I will be happy to send you my photo tutorial how to put the purse together.

Each month I offer my Just Stampin’ Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet to Go. It includes 3 cards (1 is always a fun fold) and a 3D project.  I sent out the April kits last week and my 3D project was (I bet you already guessed!) the purse kit with the All Dressed Up Designer Series Paper. I love the way you can see both sides of the paper with these purses.  The pattern on the inside looks like you lined these special purses.

I even included a BONUS card last month to go with the purses. You just have to stamp your own sentiment….everything else is included!

The Best Dressed 3 x 3 note cards & envelopes are also retiring and they are now 1/2 price! You get a set of 24 cards & envelopes for only $4!!

I ordered more of these note cards and plan to decorate them for the nursing home residents. My friend is a nurse and says they just love getting cards especially now that they can’t have visitors.

I’ll be posting information about ordering my May “Just Stampin’ Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet to Go” this week so be sure to check back. I take pride in packaging everything so it arrives safely and makes crafting easy for you! You get the tutorials with the purchase of the kit so you can always make more if you want.  It’s a great resource of ideas to have.  You can just change the paper and sentiment and you have a whole new card!
