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.

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!

I love it when stamp sets have inside sentiments to go together. This card is sure to brighten someone’s day!

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!

A Parade of Dragonfly Dreams

One of the best parts of attending any Stampin’ Up! sponsored event is card swapping. Last week I shared the card I made for the swap.  (You can see that card HERE if you missed it.) I received many cards in exchange and today I’m sharing some cards made with the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set and Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies.

WOW! Pretty amazing, right? I love this stamp set and dies and I’m thrilled it’s not retiring! However, while the stamp set and thinlits dies will be available in the new annual catalog, they will no longer be offered as a bundle.  Shop now to save 10% on this great set!

Drangonfly Dreams Bundle

I had so much fun at the recent Stampin’ Up! OnStage event. Card swapping was only part of the fun! I loved getting together and meeting other demonstrators from all over the country as well as getting a copy of the upcoming 2017 Annual Catalog, seeing sneak peeks of new products, getting to play with new products, and receiving new products to take home!  All in all I came home with 4 new stamp sets, a new punch, new ribbon and embellishments, lots of ideas, business tips, AND memories to last a lifetime! I’m so glad I joined Stampin’ Up! I love being part of this company and community of stampers who inspire and share so generously with others.

More inspiration and sneak peeks to come…

Have a wonderful day!

More Happy Mail

Welcome to my weekend showcase! If you missed yesterday’s Happy Mail you can click HERE. Today I am showcasing some more cards I received from others over the last few weeks. I am blessed with family and friends!

img_0762

Susan’s cards always bring a smile to my face! This card is her classic style…simple with a little twist.  I love how she adhered the sentiment.  The dragonfly is so versatile which makes this card great for any occasion.

img_0732

WOW!  Kathy’s card makes a bold statement!  I never bought this stamp when it was available.  Or course now I wish I had it!  Wouldn’t this be fun to color with the watercolor pencils?!

img_0733

I can feel the stress leaving my body when I look at  Margie’s card.  The beach is my favorite place! This card captures that calming effect. I love the matching envelope too! I have many people ask for masculine card ideas and this card could easily fit that bill. The High Tide Stamp set has lighthouses and some great sentiments! Check it out HERE.

img_0763

I always love Lisa’s cards…simple with a little bling!  This card makes me miss the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper. I am heading to Richmond next weekend for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage convention and we will get the new annual catalog (YEA!!).  I am hoping there will be some watercolor paper like this! What new item would you like to see in the catalog?  Leave me a comment and I will choose a lucky winner to receive some Happy Mail!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading everyone’s comments. Yesterday’s winner was…Lucky #3  HJ.  Email me your address and I will send you some Happy Mail!

Have a wonderful day!

A Glimmery Thank you

Yesterday I shared the 3 new Sale-A-Bration items. My favorite new item is the  6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack!  I need a lot of thank you cards so I decided to play with the new glimmer paper to make some cards.

Stampin Up Clean & Simple Bold Butterfly Thank You card ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I have used this simple card design before. You can change the DSP and choose a variety of sentiments then cut them out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Layering Ovals Framelits. I used  DSP from Floral Boutique, Succulent Garden, and Blooms & Bliss.  The DSP is cut at 3 1/4 x 3 1/2 and matted with a layer of cardstock that measures 3 3/8 x 3 5/8.   I chose colors to coordinate with the new glimmer paper from Sale-A-Bration…Bermuda Bay with Night of Navy, Sweet Sugarplum with Old Olive, and Mint Macaron with Island Indigo.

The sentiments are from Suite Sayings, Suite Sentiments, and Dragonfly Dreams though many others would fit as well.  I used the Bold Butterfly Framelits to cut the butterflies from each of the different colors of glimmer paper. The 6 x 6 Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack comes with 12 sheets; 4 each of 3 colors (Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum).

D is for a Date with Dragonfly Dreams and Detailed Dies

 

img_8418

Welcome to my alphabet series showcasing some of the new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs. Today I’m showcasing Dragonfly Dreams. This is already one of the most popular new items and I can see why!  It is so easy to create a quick and simple card with the Detailed Dragonfly Dies and some DSP. I used different dies, sentiments, and Designer Series Paper on each of these calendar cards.

img_8413

The sentiment is from the Designer Tee Stamp Set which you can get FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration.  There are 10 different stamps in the set. I cut the detailed dragonfly from gold foil and attached vellum behind the wings.

img_8414

It’s hard to tell in the photo but I added Wink of Stella to the dragonflies.  I masked the sentiment from the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set and cut it out with the Layering Circle Framelits. It is quick and easy to stamp masked sentiments with photopolymer stamps!

img_8415

I watercolored the bees using the new Watercolor Pencils and a blender pen. I cut them out with my paper snips. The calendars are from Taylored Expressions.

I don’t know which one is my favorite.  I love the Detailed Dragonfly Dies!  These calendar cards are made just like a basic card with the addition of a “tent” to make it sturdy to stand up all year long.  To make the tent support, start with a matching piece of cardstock that measures 4 1/4 x 5.  Score at 1, 2 1/2, and 4.  Adhere to the inside of the card.

Do you have a favorite? Read on to find out how you can get one delivered to your mailbox!

Stamp Sets: Dragonfly Dreams, Designer Tee, Perfectly Wrapped  Ink: Basic Black  Papers: Basic Black, Old Olive, Delightful Dijon, Whisper White, Vellum, Watercolor Paper, Gold Foil, Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack  Tools& Accessories: Dragonfly Dreams Thinlits Dies, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Layering Circles Framelits, Wink of Stella, Watercolor Pencils, Blender Pen, Stampin’ Dimensionals

I used the Serene Scenery DSP on my calendar cards but they would look just as nice on different paper.  Have you seen all the new Designer Series Paper in the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs?  Take a look at these delightful designs!

A Sneak Peek at Dragonfly Dreams and more

Card Created By Michelle Quinno

I love it when I get an unexpected surprise in the mail! I received this gorgeous card from a fellow demonstrator and PALS member, Michelle Quinno. We met on the flight to Atlanta last month and chatted the whole way to Atlanta. I have met so many wonderful and talented people through Stampin’ Up! and Michelle is one of them.  I just love this card! Michelle used the new Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set and Thinlits Die.  These will be available as a bundle when the catalog debuts on January 4th. Demonstrators can order product early and this one was on my preorder but I hadn’t inked it up yet.  I plan to remedy that and have the ladies make this at our Card Club today. I love how the dragonfly pops on the new Stitched Shapes Framelits.  We will use the new Watercolor Pencils to color the dragonfly. These are one of the items I was most excited about in the new catalog. They are so fun and easy to use.  Check out this video from Stampin’ Up! and see for yourself!

I hope you will leave a comment for Michelle!  If you have any questions, feel free to email me.

Have a wonderful day!

I am so excited to share with you more from my weekend of fun in Atlanta!   I really enjoyed meeting and getting to know several of my fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.   We got to see and play with great new product coming out in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs (which you will be able to order from starting January 4th).  There are many new products which I know you are going to love as much as I do!

Susan and I posed in front of one of the displays.

 

My suitcase was packed full going home with all the swaps, new product gifts, and prizes. I actually had to ship some of my clothes home as I wasn’t leaving my new stamp sets behind! LOL

 

Our team, the PALS, gathered for a pizza social after the event. It was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and congratulate our fearless leader, Mary Fish, who was named the TOP Demonstrator in the WORLD! WOW!!!  I love this picture with my uplines. I am surrounded by greatness!
