Now that I’ve shared a variety of card ideas from A to Z how about a card swap? We haven’t had one in awhile so let’s showcase some of your favorite creations. I prefer you use current products (so we don’t disappoint anyone when they want to recreate your card but can’t get what you used) but it is not mandatory. I want you to have fun creating and participate in the swap! Mail your card to me along with a self-addressed stamped envelope by September 27th. (Don’t wait to create!!!) I will swap out the cards and send you a card someone else has shared. I will showcase all the cards on my blog. I am excited to see and share your creations!  Who’s in?

W is for Wedding for the Pals Blog Hop

Blog Hop Badge August 2019

Welcome to the Pals’ August Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “Special Occasions”  – cards or projects that adds beauty to the special occasions we all love to make cards for! 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 full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I’ve been sharing cards for each letter of the alphabet in my ABC Card Series. (Make sure you follow my blog so you don’t miss out on cards for every occasion from A to Z!) Today I have a wedding card idea using the Piece of Cake Stamp Set and Lovely Flowers Die.

Stampin' Up! Piece of Cake and Lovely Flowers Wedding card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Lovely Flowers Die adds that special touch to this wedding card.
Here’s the simple recipe to make this wedding “cake”:

  • Card Base : 4 1/4 x 11 Petal Pink scored at 5 1/2
  • Die Cut Layer: 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White cut with the Lovely Flowers Die
  • DSP layer: 2 x 4 Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper
  • Scallop Circle Die : 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 Petal Pink
  • Stitched Circle Die: 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 Whisper White

I stamped the cake in Blackberry Bliss ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White and colored the flowers with Petal Pink and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. The cake stand is stamped on Smokey Slate with Smokey Slate ink. I punched the cake and stand using the Cake Builder Punch.  (You can purchase the stamp set and punch as a bundle and save 10%.)

The card is quick & easy to assemble once you have all the pieces cut. I adhered the DSP to the Die layer and then adhered it to the card base. I placed the cake and stand on the stitched die where I wanted them and drew a light pencil line above the cake to stamp MR&MRS.  I stamped the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss then adhered the pieces covering the pencil line with the cake. The stamped layer is popped up with Dimensionals.  I added a simple twine bow with a Glue Dot and 3 tiny rhinestones for a little bling.

I usually make more than one card when I’m creating and I like to try out different designs.  So here’s the great debate…Top or Bottom (for the Lovely Flowers Die)? Twine or Ribbon? Here’s both side by side – you decide! Leave a comment and let me know which one you prefer.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, September 11, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share their “It’s the Sentiment that Counts” projects. Don’t miss the fun!

L is for Love

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ll be sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! There are so many reasons to celebrate Love….a wedding, anniversary, new baby, family member, etc. Today’s card is one I made for my husband.  We celebrated our anniversary earlier this month with our children and family.

Stampin Up Love or Anniversary card idea with Well Written and Stitched Be Mine Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the Meant to Be Stamp Set, the Stitched Be Mine and Well Written Dies along with the DSP from Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper. The sentiment I chose was perfect!

There are other great sentiments and a variety of hearts in this stamp set too!

These sentiments can be used throughout the year. They coordinate with the Stitched Be Mine Dies which are so versatile for many different cards!

The “love” is from the Well Written Dies. You can easily stamp a different sentiment on the other heart or leave it blank and make this card for someone you love. Check out the products I used below.

Have a Lovely day!
