Look at everything you get in this set! The Mini Treat Bag Dies are great for making bags to fill with treats, gift cards, and/or use as an envelope for a card.  It is so much fun to decorate for a variety of occasions. You can use DSP or cardstock. I embossed the cardstock in the sample below.

OnStage Card Swap…Day 2

Yesterday I shared with you the first batch of beautiful cards I received at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event I attended in Hartford, Conn.  If you missed that post you can view it HERE. Today, I have more inspiration to get your creative juices flowing.

Card Created by Linda Droege

I was so excited to get Linda’s Double Triangle Fun Fold Card!  I have been wanting to make one of these fun folds and hers is just over the top gorgeous! I love everything about it from the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper to the organza ribbon she dyed to match.  Here’s how it looks opened.

I can not wait to make this fun fold! Check back and I will share the measurements and directions.

Stampin Up Beautiful Day friend card idea colored with Brusho Crystal Colour - For inspiration, ordering, and more visit www.juststampin.com Jeanie Stark StampinUp
Card Created by Ramsey Alexander

This card is just beautiful in person! Ramsey used the Brusho Crystal Colour ink crystals to watercolor over the heat embossed butterfly from the Beautiful Day stamp set.  I need to pull out my Crystal Colours and play.  Ramsey has done several of these cards and they come out beautiful and different every time.  This is a fun watercolor technique!

This card is so Jill! She is so much fun to be around! The Lemon Zest Stamp set has fun sentiments.  Check out what she stamped inside.

Stampin Up Beautiful Bouquet friend card idea - For inspiration, ordering and more visit www.juststampin.com Jeanie Stark StampinUp
Card Created by Deb Echelmeyer

Deb is so creative! I love how she used the flower stems from the Bouquet Bunch Dies to make a lilac bush!  (Which just happen to be my favorite flower scent!)  Deb added texture and layers to this beautiful card using the Brick Wall Embossing Folder and Layering Dies. Such a pretty spring card!

Stampin Up Birthday Blooms and Bouquet Bunch friend card idea - for inspiration, ordering and more, visit www.juststampin.com  Jeanie Stark  StampinUp
Card Created by Rosanne Mulhern

Rosanne’s card is another example of adding layers to create a beautiful card! Like Deb, she used the Beautiful Bunch Framelits to cut out the flowers and leaves. Even though this card has many flowers and layers, it has a clean & simple feel with the black & white background. I love the sentiment (and font) she used from the Birthday Blooms stamp set. It is retiring in May but it’s definitely one I will keep and continue to use. I love all the sentiments and beautiful flowers in this set.  Check it out below and be sure to get it before it’s gone!

I so appreciate the stamping community and my stamping friends! Everyone so willingly shares their ideas and talent.  Together we really can make a difference as we share our handmade kindness one card at a time! Make someone smile today!!

Thanks for stopping by!  I appreciate you taking the time to comment and I love it when you shop my online store.  Your support helps me to keep doing what I love!!  Everyone who shops with me this month will receive one of my swap cards (you can see it HERE) in addition to my monthly thank you gifts (card kits and more).

Have a wonderful day! It’s a beautiful day here in Hagerstown, Maryland and I’m going to soak up the sunshine on my walk this afternoon!

O is for Organza Ribbon

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today I’m showcasing the Whisper White 1/4″ Organza Ribbon found in the Occasions Catalog on page 23.  Stampin’ Up! used to carry Organza Ribbon and if you follow my blog, you know it was my absolute favorite ribbon. Do you know why? Well,  for starters it is classic; however, what makes it even better is that you can sponge it to be any color you want!!! My very first blog post on July 4, 2016 featured Organza ribbon that I colored to go with my party favors.  My second blog post was a Tuesday Tip on Ribbon Dying. You can Click HERE to view that post and see how easy it is to dye the organza ribbon. (I am happy to see my photography skills have improved since then.) I chose to keep my ribbon white for today’s Clean & Simple card. It is quick & easy to create and uses minimal supplies.

Stampin Up Sweet Soiree Celebrate card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I am thrilled we have Organza ribbon again! Today’s card is a remake of one I shared during my first alphabet series, ABC’s of Stampin’.  *If you are new to stamping, this is a great series which focuses on the basics of stamping. There’s lots of tips and tutorials showcasing our products and tools. Here’s the card that was my inspiration for today. You can click on the image to get the card measurements and details as well as find out all about the different adhesives and what to use for different projects.

Here are some more projects showing ways I’ve used organza ribbon in the past.  *Our new Organza ribbon is 1/4″ but you can still use it in the same ways shown!

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.

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!

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.

Celebrate True Gentleman

My sister and I have been playing around with the new designer series paper and we agree that True Gentleman Designer Series Paper is a keeper! The classic patterns are perfect for masculine cards.  Here’s a simple “formula” card we made using a piece of DSP and cutting it in half to showcase the designs on both sides.

Stampin Up True Gentleman card idea using Celebrate You Thinlits Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

We had so much fun creating this card! The card base is Night of Navy 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4. The Very Vanilla layer measures 5 1/4 x 4.  I cut a piece of 5 x 3 3/4 DSP in half and adhered both pieces to the Very Vanilla. We used the Night of Navy curdoroy ribbon to cover the seam across the middle and tied a simple knot. (I was going for the look of a bow tie.)

Another keeper is the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  You will be able to get the celebrate die (along with 2 more dies included in the set) for FREE with a $100 purchase starting January 3rd! *The dies coordinate with the Amazing You Stamp Set (another Sale-A-Bration freebie) but can also be used alone as you can see with this card. I cut and layered 3 sentiments together and adhered it to a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock then fussy cut around the letters. Celebrate is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin Up True Gentleman card idea using Celebrate You Thinlits Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The inside of the card showcases another die from the set and some leftover DSP.

Stampin Up True Gentleman card idea using Celebrate You Thinlits Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This card can be for a birthday, job promotion, or other event to celebrate! Be sure to check out the True Gentleman Suite on pages 44 & 45 in the Occasions Catalog and the Celebrate You Thinlits on page 17 in the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  You are going to want to put both on your wish list! I get many requests for masculine card ideas. With the True Gentleman DSP and a simple card formula it will be quick & easy to create for the men in your life!

Here’s another look at the card with the coordinating envelope.

Q is for Quilted Christmas

Welcome back to my Holiday ABC series!  Boy did I get off track! As you all know, life throws us some curve balls and like I told my daughter, “Life is all about how you handle Plan B”.  (As a Pre K teacher, I feel like I am the queen of Plan B!  LOL)  Today’s card is from the Quilted Christmas Suite.

Stampin Up Christmas Quilt and Butterfly Basics Birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love to take a Christmas stamp set and use it for different occasions. Here’s a video from Stampin’ Up! showcasing this suite.

Sadly, the Christmas Quilt Stamp Set and Quilt Builder Framelit Dies are retiring. You can still purchase this set as a bundle and save 10%. This set is great for more than Christmas! I have many quilting friends and know they would enjoy receiving cards or projects with this set. (I’m thinking a framed sampler would be beautiful made with this set!) You can choose to stamp the quilt design or use the framelits to piece the quilt together with cardstock.  This is such a versatile bundle!

I like the window feature on this card. There are so many color combinations you could do!  I wanted to try something different that I hadn’t done before and I think this color combination (Dapper Denim, Pool Party, and Lemon Lime Twist) looks great together.  This card would work well for other occasions too ….thinking of you, get well, etc. Here’s the details how I made it:

The card base is a piece of 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 Dapper Denim scored at 5 1/2 for a top fold card.  I used the Quilt Builder Framelits and the magnetic base plate to cut the design out of the front of my card with the Big Shot.

img_0013-1

I stamped the stitched quilt in Dapper Denim ink on a piece of 3 x 3 Whisper White. The photopolymer stamps make it so easy to see where to stamp.  I stamped the designs in Pool Party and Lemon Lime Twist.

This piece is layered on a 3 1/4 square of Dapper Denim.  I lined it up behind the cut out piece, added liquid glue on the back, then closed the card to adhere in place. I thought it needed something more so I cut the small flower in Dapper Denim with the frame piece then cut another outline piece in Pool Party.  I used a scrap piece of Lemon Lime Twist to cut the flower for the middle.

These pieces are adhered with glue dots on the front of the card.  I stamped the sentiments from Butterfly Basics in Dapper Denim ink on the front and inside of the card.  The finishing touch was wrapping the striped Grosgrain ribbon and tying a bow. This card is for a quilting friend of mine who has a December Birthday. I hope she likes it.  I embossed the envelope using the Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Stampin Up Christmas Quilt and Butterfly Basics Birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The idea for today’s card was featured in Stampin’ Success, a quarterly magazine for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators.  I like getting that extra “idea book” along with weekly emails from Stampin’ Up! with tips, techniques, product information, etc.  Just another perk of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  If you would like to join my team in the new year there is a great offer coming Jan. 3rd (during Sale-A-Bration).  Contact me and we can set up a time to chat. Personally, I don’t know why everyone doesn’t sign up to be a demonstrator…it is so simple (just choose $125 worth of product you want and only pay $99), there is no obligation to sell, you can just buy for yourself at a discount for at least 4 months (then if you meet the minimum quarterly sales requirements you stay active for another 3 months), and there’s no penalty if you just get your customized starter kit and never order another thing. You get to keep all the extras in your kit for FREE!!!…  including a FREE Paper Pumpkin kit, 2 Free Stamp Sets, and the extra $26 in FREE product you get when you place your order….plus catalogs, business resources, etc!!! This is one of those deals that may sound too good to be true but, trust me, it’s for real! Over 90% of all Stampin’ Up! demonstrators are hobbyists and just joined to enjoy the discount! You can too!! Come join the fun with me!

Have a wonderful day!

An Angled Double Gate Fold for TTTC#24

Stampin Up Number of Years Fun Fold Birthday Card Idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

tic tac toe

Today is Thursday which means it’s time for another Tic Tac Toe Challenge!  This week’s challenge is as easy as ABC!

img_8444

When I created this challenge board I had no idea what I was going to create.  I just picked an element for each letter A-I. Today’s card idea came together quick & easy as I started thinking about what I could create.  You know how I LOVE fun folds so I started with that and then thought what I could make that would be angled and that’s where I started…An angled double gate fold.

Stampin Up Number of Years Fun Fold Birthday Card Idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

To make this fun fold start with a piece of designer series paper that is 5 1/2 x 12. Score on the 12″ side at 2, 4, 8,and 10.  Mark the center on each 5 1/2″ side at 2 3/4.  Then make diagonal cuts from the top of the DSP at the 4″ and 8″ score lines to the 2 3/4″ mark on each side.

This is what is should look like after you cut and fold on the score lines.

I used other elements from the challenge board to decorate my card.  My daughter just turned 20 so I used the Number of Years Stamp Set to mark the occasion. Using a circle die cut to stamp and heat emboss my greeting combined 4 elements from my board. I made  a belly from a 1 x 9 1/2 piece of whisper white cardstock which I wrapped around my card and adhered in the front.  I also adhered some coordinating Fresh Fig Ribbon with Tear & Tape then  I attached the layering circles to the belly band with Stampin Dimensionals.

The inside of my card offers some inspirational thoughts for my daughter’s milestone birthday.  I used the Fresh Fig Stampin’ Marker to write my message and added a bow using 1/2″Finely Woven Fresh Fig Ribbon. I love the way this card can display on a desk, bookcase, or mantle.

I used the same Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper to decorate the flap on the envelope.
