A Card Challenge, A Sale, and more!

Stampin’ Up! announced last night that they are offering a discount on select retiring products starting this afternoon.  This came as a total surprise to me and my fellow demonstrators.  If there is something you have been on the fence about, check out to see if it is on sale. Retiring products are available while supplies last now through June 3rd. Click on the image below to view the newly discounted products. (Many are on My Favorites List!!!!)

My newest ABC Series, ABC Cards, will showcase cards for many different occasions. Even though I will focus on a different occasion for each letter, most of these cards could work for other occasions simply by changing the sentiment or Designer Series Paper.

If you find a card design/layout that you like, simply change it to make it work for what you want/need.  So far I have shared card ideas for anniversary and birthday. (*You can click on the images if you want to see the original posts for each.)

Either of these cards are easy to adapt for different occasions.  You can see below how I changed these up for get well and birthday cards.

Happy Birthday with Dandelion Wishes

img_3419
Happy Birthday to my sweet daughter, Ariane.  I can’t believe she is 21 years old today!  Last week I shared her surprise birthday celebration. If you missed that post you can view it HERE.

I mailed her this card so she would get it on her birthday.
Stampin Up Dandelion Wishes birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I used the new Highland Heather Designer Series Paper and cardstock because purple is her favorite color. I love the 6 x 6 DSP packs!  They are the perfect size to decorate a card and envelope.  I first cut a 2 x 6 piece to use on the flap of my envelope.  Then I cut the 4 x 6 piece to 4 x 5 1/4 to layer on the front of my card.  I used the leftover 3/4 x 4 piece on the inside of my card.  I love that there is no waste!
Stampin Up Memorable Moments and Large Number Framelits 21st Birthday card idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUp
*The Large Number Framelits and Memorable Moments Stamp Set I used on the inside of my card are retired. Everything else can be ordered from my online store. Click on the product images below to purchase. I love the Dandelion Wishes stamp set!

I stamped the image and sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I punched the sentiment using the Pretty Label Punch and layered it with a 1 3/4 Circle in Highland Heather. I popped the sentiment and layered dandelion image using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some Basic Rhinestone Jewels for a little bling!
