J is for Joy

Welcome to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! Throughout this series I will be sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC! Today is all about the Joy of giving.  If you like kits that help you create a lot of beautiful tags quickly and easily then the Joy of Giving Tag Kit by Stampin’ Up! is for you! Check out this video to see how quick & easy you can make 30 tags with this kit.

Here’s a look at the kit and tags.  You get everything you need to make 30 tags, 10 each of 3 designs! The stamp set, ink spot, and a block are all included! You also get a designer box which you can use to store the tags for yourself or to give the tags or kit as a gift.

I love to make tags. It brings me joy to add that special touch to the gifts I give. This kit makes it simple to step up your tags quick & easy! Each tag folds in half so you can stamp “To” and “From” on the inside.

I love how this card turned out! It was really quick & easy to create. The bold sentiment from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set (from the annual catalog) works well with the gorgeous Feels Like Frost DSP! I added the deer for my sister. She recently moved to Charlottesville, Virginia and this reminds me of her backyard. She loves to start and end her day sitting outside feeding the deer. Here’s a picture from my recent visit.

I imagine this winter her backyard will look very much like my card! The calendar says it’s Fall but it still feels like Summer in Maryland! I like the four seasons; however, I love summer and fall most of all. Winter will be here before we know it! What’s your favorite season?

Have a wonderful day!

I have so many ideas to share with you this holiday season! And for those of you that love my ABC Series, I have good news…..I will be starting a new alphabet series this week, ABC Holiday 2019.  I’ll be sharing ideas to make your holiday season fun and easy from A to Z!

I am also offering something new this holiday season, Stamp of The Month tutorials each month (September – December).  When you purchase through me you will receive a handmade card (using the featured stamp set) and a card kit to make one on your own. (Pretty much like I have done in the past without the “official” stamp of the month.)  In addition, for any online order of $40 or more you will receive 3 exclusive tutorials using the Stamp of the Month. The tutorials will be sent to you via email after you place your online order. The 3 cards in the tutorials will not be shown on my blog.  Here’s a look at  this month’s featured stamp set, Gather Together.

Stampin' Up! Gather Together Stamp Set - For inspiration and ordering information visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

 

Gather Together is a beautiful and versatile fall stamp set.  Great for thank you cards, get well, Thanksgiving, or just letting a friend or family member know you are thinking of them. Here’s a card I made using the stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Gather Together Clean & Simple Thanksgiving or Thank You card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love the nontraditional colors in some of the prints from the Come To Gather Designer Series Paper. Check out all the prints in this 30 second video.

Inspiration for my card came from my friend Paula. She always does a beautiful job arranging flowers. For Fall, she carves out a pumpkin to use as a base for her arrangement.  I love the new In Color, Pretty Peacock, and white pumpkins are my favorite so this paper just makes me smile! I cut one of the pumpkins out of the DSP and popped it up with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I used a die from Animal Friends to cut the leaves for my pumpkin arrangement and adhered them with glue dots. I finished it off with a bow made from Linen Thread and coordinated my envelope with the same DSP.
