From the Heart

Stampin Up Petal Palette washi tape card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love Stampin’ Up! The products are top notch, the color coordination and tools make it easy to create beautiful projects, and the company’s “Statement of the Heart” sums it up beautifully!

Stampin’ Up! Statement of the Heart: 
“To love what we do and share what we love, as we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments…in this we make a difference.”
I was inspired to make this card for team members to let them know how much I enjoy being on this journey with them. I used the Petal Palette stamp set and some washi tape to create this clean and simple card.
Stampin Up Petal Palette washi tape card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
This is one of those simple “formula cards” that I have used before.  Simply change out the washi tape and use whatever focal point you want.  Here I used a die cut heart from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits but I also made the birthday card (pictured below) which I shared previously. It has a bow made with the Bow Builder Punch.  *You can click on the image below to see the original post with all the details and tips to make the washi tape card and other projects.
I would love to have you join me on this journey with my “Stampin’ Sisters”!  (We would even love to welcome a “brother” or two to the mix!!!)  If you ever thought about becoming part of the Stampin’ Up! demonstrator community, Sale-A-Bration is a great time to “try it out”. Why? Because you get 2 extra stamp sets (of your choice) for FREE!! (*You also get a FREE Paper Pumpkin in your starter kit so you can try that out too!) Think about it…you are already buying the products, why not get them at a discount and make some wonderful new friends along the way?!  Seriously, Stampin’ Up! makes it so easy to join and just buy for yourself if you want. You don’t have to have classes, blog,  or sell anything if you don’t want to. You can just purchase your starter kit (Choose $125 in product of your choice for $99) and choose your 2 FREE stamp sets and enjoy the discount now through July. There’s no penalty if you don’t buy anything else, you don’t have to send anything back, no one is going to pressure you or harass you. Over 90% of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators sign up just for the discount. If you want to build a business, we can help you with that. You decide what you want…Join our private FB groups (and get involved in the chats or just browse and see what’s going on), be the first to see and try out new product, get together with other demonstrators, watch training webinars, participate in contests to win free product, …and so much more!  I have to say joining Stampin’ Up! is one of the best decisions I ever made! I’ve had fun every step of the way!

Celebrate with Make a Medallion

img_0709

I can’t believe I waited until the last day of Sale-A-Bration to ink up the Make a Medallion Stamp Set!  I had so much fun layering these stamps with different color combinations.  Because this is a photopolymer stamp set, it is so easy to get perfect placement with each layer.  I used the In Colors cardstock and ribbon with the Celebrations Duo Textured Impressions Embossing Folder… I love the debossed impression you get.  This card is really quick and easy to put together.  I started with a Whisper White card base 5 1/2 x 8 1/4 scored at 4 1/4.  I embossed my In Color layer which measures 4 x 5 1/4 and adhered that to the card base.  The stamped layer is a 2 7/8 square which is layered on a 3 x 3 piece of coordinating cardstock and attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Here are my color combinations:

img_0713

Emerald Envy and Mint Macaron

img_0712

Dapper Denim and Bermuda Bay

img_0710

Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry

img_0714

Flirty Flamingo and Watermelon Wonder

img_0711

Peekaboo Peach and Pumpkin Pie

Do you have a favorite color combination?  Check out this video from Stampin’ Up showing some different ways to layer with this stamp set.

As you can see from the video there are so many different ways to combine the stamps in this set! I didn’t even use the sentiments that fit nicely in the medallion! I like the way this stamp set looks with the Lovely Lace embossing folder which I used to decorate my envelopes.

There is always something to celebrate! I’m sending these cards out to my team members this month. I am looking forward to getting together with “my people” next weekend in Richmond, Virginia at Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event.  We will get to see the new annual catalog, play with some of the new products, swap cards, and have all kinds of fun!

Sale-A-Bration ends today and it has certainly been a lot of fun! I appreciate everyone who placed orders with me.  I have been busy getting your goodies ready to mail out. All orders placed through my online store (Using the host code GZ4DZZ6J )are eligible for my FREE monthly gifts.  This month you will receive my birthday party goodie bags with DSP, card kits, and more!

Thank You So Very Much “In Colors”

img_0483

The 2015-2017 In-Colors are set to retire on May 31, 2017.  We KNOW from past experience that they sell out quickly once the retiring list is posted in April.  Do yourself a favor and stock up on your favorite colors NOW, before there is a chance they are gone!!

2015-2017 In Colors

  • Do you have the stamp pads?  Make sure to purchase refills!!
  • Do you like the color? Make sure to stock up on cardstock and Designer Series Papers!
  • And, don’t forget the Marker Set if that’s something you like to have on hand.
  • Remember, there are also In-Color ribbon and embellishment choices that also sell out quickly.

The best part of stocking up NOW is that you earn a FREE Sale-A-Bration product with every $50 you spend. The sentiment I used on today’s cards is from the So Very Much stamp set which you can get for FREE during Sale-A-Bration through March 31st (or while supplies last). I needed some thank you cards to send to the families that sponsored my Family Bingo fundraiser at school. I love the big bold Thank You in this set!  I used the different retiring In Colors for these cards. Do you have a favorite color?

Delightful Dijon

These clean and simple cards are quick to assemble! I love the ribbon in this collection and a simple knot is all it takes to add texture without a lot of bulk.  The Designer Series Paper is from the In Color Paper Stack…you get 40 12 x 12 sheets: 4 each of 2 double-sided designs in all 5 colors! I really like the versatility with the different patterns.
