Let’s Have A Card Swap!

We haven’t had a card swap in awhile so I’m thinking there’s no time like the present! The new annual catalog has been out for 2 months now and I’m sure everyone has picked up a favorite stamp set, new cardstock colors, or Designer Series Paper they really like.  So let’s showcase some of your favorites. Mail your card to me along with a self-addressed stamped envelope by Friday, August 17th. (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?

Mail cards to me:

Make A Difference with Personalized Place Cards

I love to entertain, especially over the holidays.  I’m not much of a cook (my husband does most of the cooking in our family) but, I am all about the presentation! I am getting a head start on some personalized place cards using the Make A Difference and Blended Seasons stamp sets.

Stampin Up Blended Seasons and Make A Difference Personalized Name Card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These are really fun to make! Yesterday I shared two Christmas cards I made with the holly from the Blended Seasons stamp set. (If you missed that post you can view it HERE.) While I had everything out on my desk, I cut a bunch of 2 x 3 Thick Whisper White cardstock and stamped the holly using Memento ink. We usually have between 20-25 people for Christmas Eve dinner (that’s just our immediate family) so I thought it would be a good idea to get a head start. I plan to take these with me when we take my daughter back to college next week and color them at the hotel at night. Adding the names with the Make A Difference stamp set is a breeze as it is a photopolymer stamp set so its easy to see where to stamp the letters.

Stampin Up make A Difference stamp set - Jeanie Stark www.juststampin.com StampinUp

Just think of all the possibilities with this stamp set…you can make any sentiment you want! Check out this short video as Brandi from the Stampin’ Up! home office shares some more ideas with this stamp set.

I have used candy canes on a holiday buffet table before to label different food items but I think the personalized place card is so special! I used a rubber band to hold the three candy canes together then covered it up with ribbon tied in a bow. Quick & easy!Stampin Up Blended Seasons and Make A Difference Personalized Name Card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Blended Seasons Stamp Set will be available August 1 -31 while supplies last.  It is a limited edition bundle that I know you will love and use year round! Plus Bonus Days is coming in August where you earn $5 coupons for every $50 you purchase! Get your wish list ready. I’ll share all the details next week.

I really enjoyed reading everyone’s comments yesterday about your Christmas cards.  I am amazed at how many some of you make!  WOW!  I make between 60-75 (all the same) to send to family and friends.  Of course I play around and make several cards each year until I decide on “the one”.  I always seem to find people to give the “extra” cards to each year.  You can never spread too much cheer!!

I promised to pick a random winner from the comments to send a little gift to along with one of yesterday’s cards. The winner is…….. #4 Mary Grunder!!!  Congratulations Mary!  Email me (j.stark@myactv.net) your address and I will put your goodies in the mail.  Thanks to all who left comments.  I have missed you!!!

Have a wonderful day!

Christmas in July with Blended Seasons

Stampin Up Blended Seasons Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love Christmas! When I saw the new limited-time bundle, Blended Seasons, I couldn’t wait to create my first Christmas cards of the year. I just love the Stitched Seasons Framelits! The Blended Seasons bundle is a fantastic collection of stamps and dies you can use year round. It will only be available August 1-31 while supplies last! (Click HERE if you missed yesterday’s post with all the details.)

Stampin Up Blended Seasons Bundle - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Blended Seasons stamp set offers many possibilities for coloring and I love to color! I used my Stampin’ Blends but you could easily use watercolor pencils or Aqua Painter. I even colored my envelope to match! *Make sure you put a piece of scrap paper inside the envelope when coloring with Blends in case it bleeds through.

Stampin Up Blended Seasons Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s the measurements:

Card Base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 (Whisper White)

Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 4

Layer 2:  4 3/4 x 3 1/2

Layer 3 (DSP): 4 1/2 x 3 1/4

I cut out the smallest stitched framelit on whisper white then stamped the sentiment in Real Red and the holly with Memento Black Ink.  I used Light Cherry Cobbler for the berries and the Old Olive Combo Blends for the holly. I cut the middle-sized stitched framelit and wrapped 3/8″ Real Red Cotton Ribbon around it before adhering the stamped image.  The Stitched Framelit layer is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

You could use this card design for any occasion. Try it with different DSP and sentiments! Here’s another look at each card.Stampin Up Blended Seasons Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUpStampin Up Blended Seasons Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Tuesday Tip…Dies

If you are familiar with the Big Shot, you know that there are different types of dies…framelits, edgelits, and thinlits. Some die sets contain a mix of dies that cut only, dies that emboss only, and detailed dies that require extra accessories for best results.  With the new annual catalog, Stampin’ Up! decided to create a system that will help you more easily navigate how to build your sandwiches for different types of dies in the Big Shot.

There is a color-coded key on page 215 in the Annual Catalog that details the sandwich techniques needed for each die type. You can click HERE to view (and print) how die images are color coded to indicate which type of sandwich to use.  Refer to pages 215-221 in the Annual Catalog to see which sandwich you need to use for the dies you own.  *I highlight the dies I own in the catalog.  This makes it quick & easy to reference when I am placing an order or need to check how to build my sandwich.

Hope you find this new feature helpful. Here’s my Top 10 favorite NEW Dies..

All of these dies (except the Delicate Lace Edgelits) have coordinating stamp sets and can be purchased as a bundle for a 10% Savings! Click on any of the images above to view in my online store.

Product shares are being mailed out this week!  If you ordered from the “buffet” be sure to check your mailbox for your taste of the new products.  I will be placing another order later this month for round 2 of my product shares.  Click HERE for more information about my Product Share Buffet. My offerings are real “Suite”!
