A Pocketful of Happiness

Welcome to my 12 Days of Giveaways! Let’s start right off with today’s winner….Congratulations to Deanette! Email me (j.stark@myactv.net) your address and I’ll put a kit in the mail for you to make the votive candle boxes! I am having so much fun sending little gifts in the mail and I love reading all the comments! There’s still many gifts to go in my 12 Days of Giveaways!  All you have to do is leave a comment on my blog for a chance to win each day! Today’s project is one I recently sent to everyone who took advantage of my Free Shipping offer (through Cyber Monday). I hope they like their “pocketful of happiness”.

Stampin' Up! Pocketful of Happiness In Color note card / gift card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I knew I wanted to use the Pocket Dies.  The die makes the perfect pocket to slide in a gift card, cash, or in this case a check (to cover the cost of their shipping charges). The Pocketful of Happiness Stamp Set coordinates with the dies and is one of my absolute favorites from the annual catalog! I have used it for so many birthday and thank you cards. It has great sentiments I use all the time!

You can color the images with blends, markers, watercolor pencils, etc. I was inspired by Erica Cerwin’s tone on tone card and adapted it for my note cards. I loved making these cards using the different patterns in the 6 x 6 In Color DSP.

Stampin' Up! Pocketful of Happiness In Color note card / gift card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These are really quick & easy to make! The DSP measures 3 x 4 1/2  and is adhered to a cardstock layer that is 1/8 larger. Stamp the pocket image in the same color ink as the cardstock and cut with the die.  Fold and burnish the score lines and add adhesive to the folded flaps (I recommend Tear & Tape or Liquid Glue). Add Wink of Stella to the dove and a couple pearls on the flowers. I used the Delightful Tag Topper to punch a 2 x 3 1/4 piece of Whisper White cardstock to put in the pocket (along with the check). A simple knot with the Scalloped Linen Ribbon adds a nice touch and makes it easy to pull out the stamped note. Inside the card I stamped the pretty floral image at the top and added a sticky note to write a personal message.  That way they can remove the sticky note and reuse the card to send to someone else! Pretty clever don’t you think?!

These make great birthday cards if you want to give cash or a gift card! Stamp the birthday sentiment from the set and you are done! Who wouldn’t love a pocketful of happiness like that?! Here’s some of the other ones I made using more In Colors!

How perfect is that floral image for the envelope?! Do you have a favorite In Color or DSP pattern? Leave me a comment and you could be the next winner in my 12 Days of Giveaways! The ladies at the post office are getting in on the fun as much as I am!  They want to know what’s in the envelopes I’m mailing out each day! They feel the envelopes and try to guess! LOL I’m lucky I live so close as I spend a lot of time there!!

Have a great day!

I have three different versions of a super quick fun fold Christmas card idea I made using this bundle.

Stampin' Up! Perfectly Plaid Fun Fold Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love fun fold cards and this “Impossible Fun Fold” is actually very easy to do and uses minimal supplies. (Great for when you need to make multiples!)

Stampin' Up! Perfectly Plaid Fun Fold Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

For the first card I stamped 2 of the tree stamps directly on the Whisper White cardstock piece using Shaded Spruce Ink. I stamped the third tree on Shaded Spruce cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder.  Then I punched it out with the coordinating Pine Tree Punch and popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  You can add a sentiment and sign the card on the back.

For my second card I used the same tree stamp for all three trees.  I stamped two and then heat embossed the one in the middle again. I punched out all three and added a few rhinestone embellishments to the trees on the side. I love the heat embossed sentiment as well as the ribbon and bell on this one!Stampin' Up! Perfectly Plaid Fun Fold Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love this fun fold and because I like to send photo cards to my family every year I wanted to see how it looks with a wallet size photo.

*This is not my family photo (It’s actually one of my sisters with her family). I need to get our family photo printed so I can make these cards! I love how it turned out! I make a lot of cards every year and I will be able to make multiples of these fast! You can make 4 of these card bases from 1 sheet of cardstock! I can also decorate 2 cards from each 6 x 6 piece of DSP.  With 48 sheets in the Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper I’ll have plenty for all my Christmas cards!
