2019 January From The Heart graphic for BLog Hop

Welcome to the Pals monthly blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here! January is all about making “Art from the Heart,” featuring projects for Valentines Day, Thinking of You, Get Well, or Sympathy. 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 Large Letter Framelits and Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies Framed Art Gift Ideas for Valentine's Day, Wedding, or Anniversary - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love to make 3D projects to give as gifts. (Did you see the other framed projects I made for Christmas?) Today’s projects are quick & easy using the Large Letters Framelits and a 4 x 6 picture frame.

My first project makes a great Valentine or anniversary gift for the love of your life. Who will you give the “key to your heart”?

Stampin Up Large Letter Framelits and Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies Framed Art Gift Ideas for Valentine's Day, Wedding, or Anniversary - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I started with a piece of 4 x 6 All My Love Designer Series Paper.  The beautiful heart is from the Be Mine Stitched Framelit Dies which is part of the All My Love Suite in the new Occasions catalog.  I cut the heart and die from thick Whisper White cardstock and adhered them to the DSP.  I made a matching bow using Lovely Lipstick Ribbon and adhered it on top with a glue dot.  The finishing touch was adding the key from the Classic Garage Metal Elements.

After 33 years I’m giving this “key to my heart” to my husband!

I couldn’t wait to make my next project as soon as I saw the gorgeous Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper! My beautiful niece got married last summer and the dress she wore for her engagement photo matched the fresh fig floral vellum design.

I used another heart from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies and this one cuts out the heart in the center as well as the scalloped frame. I cut the photo and a piece of Fresh fig cardstock and adhered the photo inside the framed piece.

The soft elegant designs in the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper are perfect for weddings, anniversaries, and more. It is so easy to hand cut the vellum to use for accents like I did on the corner of my frame. Here’s a look at the other designs.  (It’s one of my favorite paper packs in the Occasions catalog!)

Sunshine Wishes for Kelly and Kyle!

My beautiful niece got married this summer. I made several wedding cards for family members to give.  Today I’m sharing a quick & easy card to hold a check or cash.

Stampin Up Sunshine Wishes money holder wedding card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits and Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper.  My niece loves pink and not only were the bridesmaids dresses a pretty soft pink, her bouquet (made by my talented sister) had a touch of pink too!

This card is simple to make using two of my favorite tools, the Stampin’ Trimmer and the envelope punch board.  Many thanks to Amy Koenders for the inspiration for this card. Start with a 7 x 8 1/2 piece of DSP (or cardstock) and score along the long side at 3 and 6.  (I love that the Stampin’ Trimmer cuts and scores!) Next, use the envelope punch board and line up the shorter side at 3 1/2 and punch on the side with the score line closest to it. Line up the notch with the cutting point on your trimmer and cut from the edge to the notch on just one side.

savingpng-49

Fold on the score lines and add sticky strip along the sides of the pocket. Stamp a sentiment on the inside.  I used the Floral Phrases stamp set and Mossy Meadow ink.

To make the belly band cut a 3 1/2 x 7 piece of Petal Pink cardstock and adhere it to a 3 3/4 x 7 piece of Gold Foil. Score at 1 7/8 and 5. Fold along the score lines and adhere the ends. Wrap ribbon around and tie a bow. I adhered the dies from Sunshine Wishes Thinlits which I cut from Gold Foil and Thick Very Vanilla cardstock. The belly band will slide on and off the card.

No envelope was necessary for this card as it was placed in the card box at the reception.  I love these pictures of the happy couple on their wedding day.

Here’s to Happily Ever After!

Wishing you a wonderful day!

Stampin Up Love What You Do All Occasion card idea from the Share What You Love Suite -Jeanie Stark StampinUp
 I was inspired by a Dawn Griffith’s card sketch to create this card.  I chose the colors from the gorgeous Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.
Stampin Up Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper - For inspiration and ordering information visit www.juststampin.com Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I love the color combination of Rich Razzleberry and Crumb Cake. Check out this new ribbon…a super soft velvet in Rich Razzleberry!  This card has lots of layers and a front pocket to tuck in your special sentiment.  Here’s the details:
Card Base – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4  (Rich Razzleberry)
Layer 1 – 4 x 5 1/4 (Crumb Cake)
Layer 2 – 3 3/4 x 5 (Whisper White)
DSP and cardstock diagonal pieces – 3 3/4 x 3 cut at a diagonal
Sentiment insert – 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 (Whisper White), 2 3/4 x 4 (Rich Razzleberry)
Apply adhesive to the sides and bottom of the diagonal pieces and adhere to the Whisper White layer. *Make sure you do not add adhesive on the diagonal so you can insert the sentiment in the pocket. Adhere this layer to the crumb cake and wrap ribbon before adhering to the card base. The sentiment and flower are from the Love What You Do Stamp Set.
Share What You Love
The flower is stamped in Crumb Cake and stamped off once.  The sentiment is stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink. I love that this sentiment can be used for many different occasions (birthday, wedding, anniversary, graduation, etc.).  I am giving this card to my mom for Mother’s Day. I like that the sentiment can come out and you can put a gift card behind. What a nice surprise!
Stampin Up Love What You Do All Occasion card idea from the Share What You Love Suite -Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I think my mom will love the colors in this card…she has these colors throughout her home. I love to make coordinating envelopes…a fun sneak peek at what’s inside!

V is for Vinyl Stickers

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. The Painted Love Gold Vinyl stickers found on page 19 in the Occasions catalog are easy to miss.  They are hard to see in the catalog so here’s a photo in case you missed them too!

Stampin Up Painted Love God Vinyl Stickers - for inspiration and ordering visit www.juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These self-adhesive hearts, borders, and shapes in brilliant gold coordinate with images in the Sure Do Love You Stamp Set; however, they can easily be used with any stamp set or stand on their own. I have several cards (and a treat box) to share with you today using these stickers with the Petal Passion and True Gentleman Suites.

Stampin Up Petal Palette Wedding Card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The layout for this card was inspired by a card design from a fellow PAL, Nancy Gleason. I love using the ribbon to highlight the sentiment.  Both the sentiment and flower are from the Petal Palette stamp set.  I stamped the floral image in Black Memento ink and cut it out with the matching dies then fussy cut the flower apart to make it fit the card better. (I used the other piece from the flower on my next card.) I adhered the ribbon and sentiment banner on top of the vinyl sticker. I colored the flower with Stampin’ Blends and adhered it off to the side with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The base of my card is a Whisper White note card. The Powder Pink layer measures 4 5/8 x 3 1/8 and the Whisper White layer measures 4 1/2 x 3.

Stampin Up Petal Palette Wedding Card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My niece is getting married this summer and this is the perfect size card for a gift card.

My next card uses a different vinyl sticker and another sentiment from the Petal Palette stamp set. This sweet card could be used for several occasions (engagement, shower, new baby, anniversary, wedding, job promotion, etc.)

Stampin Up Petal Palette Wedding, Anniversary, or Baby Card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The flower image is the leftover piece from the card above. I embossed the card base with the Petal Pair Embossing folder and added my layered image on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Whisper White stamped layer measures 3 x 3 1/2 and is layered on a 3 1/4 x 3 3/4 piece of Calypso Coral. The flower is colored with Stampin’ Blends and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The ribbon is adhered with a glue dot on top of the vinyl sticker.  I added a matching sticker on the front of the envelope and embossed the flap.

Stampin Up Petal Palette Wedding, Anniversary, or Baby Card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The gold vinyl stickers are versatile to use so many different ways! They make it quick & easy to embellish cards and envelopes or add a special touch to a treat box.

Stampin Up Clear Tiny Treat Box with Painted Love Gold Vinyl Stickers and Ghirardelli Chocolate - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Stampin Up Clear Tiny Treat Box with Painted Love Gold Vinyl Stickers and Ghirardelli Chocolate - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love these clear tiny treat boxes from Stampin’ Up! They make a quick & easy gift! I filled this one with 6 Ghirardelli chocolates, added a bow and a few vinyl stickers and I was done!  You could put a little jar of jam, a Yankee votive candle, or any other small item inside.

Here’s a card idea I got from Linda Heller that I made for my son and husband for Valentine’s Day using the vinyl stickers and True Gentleman Designer Series Paper.  (I don’t know why I didn’t share them before.)

Stampin Up True Gentleman card idea with Painted Love Gold Vinyl Stickers - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Either of these cards could be used for an anniversary or anytime you want to let someone know you love them. The True Gentleman Designer Series Paper make these cards perfect for the men in your life.  The sentiment I used on the inside is also from Petal Palette.  I love the sentiments in this stamp set and from the comments on my blog last week many of you do too!!

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

If you want to view the whole alphabet series with DSP, go to categories and click ABC’s with DSP. It will start with Z and go backwards.  *If you want to start with A, go to archives and begin at October 3, 2016.

Here’s another look at today’s cards.  Do you have a favorite?

A Double Z Fun Fold with Sweet Soiree

Stampin Up Petal Palette and Sweet Soiree fun fold wedding card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s another card my sister and I collaborated on while playing around with the new designer series paper packs. We both fell in love with the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper! The double sided paper has silver foil accents on one side and even though they don’t photograph well, they are just gorgeous in person!

I love the the coordinating colors in this paper.  We used 4 different designs on this fun fold card.  The cake is fussy cut from one of the designs and popped up on Stampin Dimensionals.

Stampin Up Petal Palette and Sweet Soiree fun fold wedding card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The sentiment is from the Petal Palette stamp set and is stamped in Flirty Flamingo. (I can’t wait to make more cards with this stamp set and coordinating dies!!!)

I masked the Best Wishes sentiment and stamped it to fit on the inside of the card.

Our niece is getting married in June and her color scheme is pink. I think she will like this card though I am going to have to come up with another idea as my sister is keeping this one to give her!  LOL

You can purchase the products used to make this card from my online store. The products are from the new Occasions catalog.  Check out the Sweet Soiree Suite on pages 10 – 13 and the Petal Passion Suite on pages 22 – 23.

G is for Gate Fold Cards

Welcome to my ABC’s with Fun Folds series.  Today I am showcasing the Gate fold.  I think this is one of the easiest fun fold cards to make. I made a variety of cards for you today using the new 2017-2019 In Colors.

Stampin Up Floral Phrases and Fresh Florals In Color Gate Fold card ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love how this fun fold showcases the designer series paper.  I mixed and matched the patterns in the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack to make a set of cards to give as  a gift. I also wanted to show several different ways to use ribbon on your cards.  I love how the Stampin’ Up! ribbon matches the cardstock and ink colors. I think ribbon adds a nice element of texture to a card.  This new 1/2″ In Color Ribbon is finely woven and very easy to manipulate. I will be offering a ribbon share for the In Color ribbons as well as some of the other ribbon in the new catalog.  You can pick and choose which ribbon shares you want…there are so many choices for ribbon (which thrills me)!!

I have lots of photos for you today so let’s get to the details to make this card. Start with a piece of 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 cardstock.  Score at 2 1/8 and 6 3/8 (or just flip and score at 2 1/8 on each side if that is easier.)

img_2260

I cut two 2 x 5 3/8″ strips of DSP for the front of my card and mixed up the patterns.  I stamped the floral image from Floral Phrases Stamp Set 3 times for each color…once on the envelope flap, once on a piece of 5 1/4 x 4 Whisper White (for the inside), and once on a piece of Whisper White to cut out using the Layering Ovals Framelits.  I also cut a scallop layering oval in each color cardstock. I attached the oval pieces together.  I adhered the DSP strips to the card bases then had some fun choosing different sentiments and playing with different ways to add ribbon. *Make sure when you adhere the ovals you only put adhesive on the left side so the card will open from the center.

Here’s a look at each of the cards…

Stampin Up Fresh Florals and Floral Phrases Happy Birthday Gate Fold card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I made a birthday card in Lemon Lime Twist and added a banner in whisper white to showcase the Lemon Lime Ribbon.  I love how these gate fold cards open.

Stampin Up Happy Birthday Gorgeous and Floral Phrases Fresh Florals Gate Fold birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the Happy Happenings (retiring) and Happy Birthday Gorgeous (available June 1st) stamp sets for my sentiments on this card.

Stampin Up Floral Phrases and Fresh Florals Gate Fold birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My next card is for a baby in the new Powder Pink. I made a simple bow with the ribbon and attached it with a glue dot.

I thought the peek-a-boo sentiment from Suite Sayings (retiring) was perfect for this gate fold design.

I made a sympathy card in Fresh Fig and wrapped the ribbon around the card and tied a bow in the front.  I attached the  oval to the ribbon so you can slide it on and off like a belly band.

Stampin Up Floral Phrases and Teeny Tiny Wishes Gate Fold Sympathy card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The sympathy stamp on the front of my card is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  This is one of those MUST HAVE stamp sets.  There are so many sentiments for every occasion!  It is one of the first stamp sets I purchased and I have used it over and over again.

Stampin Up Floral Phrases and Flourishing Phrases Gate Fold Sympathy card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The inside sentiment is from Flourishing Phrases…another versatile stamp set with sentiments for several occasions (sympathy, wedding, thank you, congratulations, hello, love, just a note, etc.)

Stampin Up Floral Phrases Fun Fold Sympathy card ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used Berry Burst to make a wedding card.  I think the gate fold design would be great  for wedding invitations as well as cards to congratulate the new couple.  The teeny tiny Mr. & Mrs. stamp is from one of my favorite bundles that is retiring, That’s the Tag.

Stampin Up Floral Phrases Gate Fold wedding card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I like the fun ribbon tie on this one!  I simply wrapped the ribbon around the card and tied it with some Whisper White Baker’s Twine.  I adhered the oval to the ribbon using Fast Fuse so it can slide on and off like a belly band. The inside sentiment is from the Floral Phrases stamp set (which I also used to stamp the flower on each card).

I decided to switch the opening on the Tranquil Tide card for a fun twist.

Stampin Up Floral Phrases Gate Fold thank you card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I attached ribbon under the oval with a glue dot and made a bow tied with Bakers’s Twine for the front.  I love how you can open the card with the ribbon.

Stampin Up Floral Phrases Gate Fold thank you card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I use this thank you sentiment from Floral Phrases all the time!  It works on the front of a card as well as the inside.

Tranquil Tide in my favorite of the new In Colors. (Though Fresh Fig is a close second!) Do you have a favorite new In Color?

Say I Do! with the Shoe

A coworker asked me to make a wedding card for a friend that was getting married this weekend.  I always like to make my cards coordinate with the theme/colors of the wedding.  When I asked her the colors she sent me a text of the bride’s shoe.  I fell in love with the shoes which inspired me to create today’s card.  Here’s the shoe.

img_0223

Here’s my card.

img_0227

Basic Black and Very Vanilla are classic and timeless! My card base is 4 1/4 x 11 Very Vanilla scored at 5 1/2.  I cut a piece of 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 basic black using the Detailed Floral Thinlits and the Precision Base Plate.  It’s quick and easy to get all the little pieces out with the die brush.  Here’s a short video showing how to cut the Detailed Floral Thinlits.

I attached my detailed floral piece to the card base using Fast Fuse adhesive along the wide strip across the top.  You can add Glue Dots to adhere the detailed floral piece if you want but I like to leave it free flowing.  I stamped the sentiment from Falling for You using basic black ink. I love the font and sentiments in this stamp set!

Falling for You stamp set

I couldn’t resist making a bow (to match the shoe) using the Bow Builder Punch. Watch this short video to see how easy it is to make a bow using this punch and Glue Dots.

My matching envelope was made using a piece of 2 1/4 x 6  basic black and cutting it out with the smaller die from the Detailed Floral Thinlits.  I adhered it to the envelope flap using Tear & Tape along the edges of my envelope then cutting away the excess paper.

img_0228

You could make this card and envelope in any color for any occasion! It is quick & easy! If you don’t have the Bow Builder Punch you can add a ribbon bow. Stamp a sentiment and you are good to go!
