A New Look for the Wood Crate Framelits

I bet I’m not the only one who shops and sees color in Stampin’ Up! names! (My daughter bought a lovely Crushed Curry top! LOL)  I keep my color swatch book in my purse so I have it when I’m out shopping. (I also have one that I keep in my craft room.) You never know where you’ll find inspiration! Today I have a new look for the Wood Crate Framelits and a peek at some of the new Designer Series Papers.

Stampin Up 2019 -2021 In Colors and Yankee Candle votives - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Yesterday was my first venture out since I had surgery on my arm. My daughter drove me around to run a few errands. I felt like I hit the jackpot at the Yankee Candle store…votive candles were 1/2 price!  I pulled out my swatch book and found colors to match our new In Colors!  I was like a kid in a candy store.  I couldn’t wait to get home and create!

I love all 4 of the new patterns in the 2019-2021 In Color 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper (though I will miss the polka dots!).  I cut 2 pieces of each using the Wood Crate Framelits.  The crates are so quick & easy to put together as it cuts and scores at the same time.  Just add adhesive to the flaps and bottom of one and adhere the two pieces together.  The new Scalloped Linen Ribbon (available June 4th) added a nice touch with a simple knot for a bow. Look at this beautiful ribbon!

These candle crates are perfect little thank you gifts for hostesses, teachers, hairdressers (or friends who spoil you with gifts and food following surgery). What a great idea for craft fairs! Here’s a close up of each of the crates with the new In Color Designer Series Paper patterns. (These same patterns will be available in 6 x 6 paper packs for each color family.)

These were so much fun to make I just couldn’t stop! Guess What?…The new Woven Threads Designer Series Paper (available June 4th) coordinates with the new In Colors!  Look at these fun mix of colors!

Hmmm….I think I like it better with the matching candles.  What about you?

So, are you convinced you need this die before it retires (or sells out)? Yesterday I shared some other ideas using the Wood Crate Framelits. If you missed that post, you can view it HERE.

HOME for all Seasons…A Kit To Go!

I had the most wonderful long weekend! It was like a mini vacation! I hosted a three day stamping retreat at my home for some of my stamping friends! We had so much fun creating, sharing ideas, chatting and laughing up a storm!  I didn’t want the weekend to end! We didn’t even have to cook as my husband pampered us all weekend long with breakfast, lunch, and dinner!! I wish  I had taken lots of photos to share with you but we were having so much fun creating we didn’t even stop to take but a few pictures. However, I do have a fun 3D home decor project we made that I am offering as a Kit To Go!

I gifted everyone with a 5 x 7 photo frame and the supplies to make this interchangeable project.

Time to Sale-A-Brate Friendship with the Pals Blog Hop

Blog Hop Badge February 2019

Welcome to the Pals’ February blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here because it’s “Time to Sale-A-Brate”! Our Design Team created projects using Sale-A-Bration items to inspire you. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin Up friend card and gift idea using Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and Part of My Story Stamp Set - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Today I’m “Sale-A-Brating” friendship! One of the best things about being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is all the new friendships I have made over the past several years while sharing my joy of stamping!

My card and gift uses three of my favorite items from the Sale-A-Bration catalog…the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, the gorgeous Organdy Ribbon (from the combo pack), and an awesome sentiment stamp set, Part of My Story.  Here’s a peek at each of these items.   (Did I mention you can get all of these for FREE?!!)

I love to create cards and gifts to match.  This gift was quick & easy to put together for a special friend. Gather some rocks, tree branches, and some store bought moss and put it all in a jar. (The rocks hold the branches in place.)  I fussy cut the large butterflies from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and attached them to the branches with glue dots.  This gift will last much longer than a bouquet of flowers! Choose the butterflies that match your home decor or stamp your own using the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set from the Occasions catalog!

For the coordinating card I used another pattern from the Botancial Butterfly DSP for my background.  I used the Seasonal Layers Thinlits to cut the branch and then fussy cut another large butterfly from the DSP.  I punched the small butterfly from another pattern of the DSP using the Butterfly Duet Punch.  (I love how you can use the butterfly punch with the coordinating Butterfly Gala Stamp Set or the Designer Series Paper.  More bang for your buck!!)

I popped up the butterfly layer, the larger butterfly, and the sentiment layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment from Part of My Story can be used for many occasions! (Check back tomorrow to see how I used it for my Valentine’s Day cards! Make sure you subscribe to my blog to get an email each time I post.)

The finishing touch was adding the beautiful bow made with the organdy ribbon!  The best part about this project is I got the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack, and Part of My Story Stamp Set for FREE! You can too with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration (now through March 31st).

Shine A Light On Peace for the Pals Blog Hop

December All that Sparkles and Shines post graphic

Welcome to the Pals monthly blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here! December is time for glitz and bling with  “All that Sparkles & Shines”. Today we feature projects that sparkle or shine. Maybe even a little of both.

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I live in Maryland not far from the Antietam National Battlefield. One of our family traditions is to visit the battlefield the first weekend in December for their Annual Memorial Illumination. It is the largest memorial illumination in all of North America and this year marked their 30th anniversary. Each luminary (over 23,000) represents a soldier’s sacrifice during the bloodiest one-day battle of the Civil War. (I’m a bit of a history buff.) There are no words adequate to describe the event…to see these hallowed grounds lit up is unbelievably surreal!

Antietam National Battlefield

I was inspired by my recent visit to create this set of luminaries.

Stampin Up Large Letter Framelits Peace Luminaries for Christmas Home decor idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These are simple to make. For each one I cut a 5 x 8 1/4 piece of Garden Green cardstock and scored each at 2, 4, 6, and 8. I used the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies (available Jan. 3rd in the Occasions Catalog) to cut the shape out for my light to shine through. I was so excited when I saw these dies in the new catalog! You get 13 different sizes which feature stitching inside and outside the frame! How cool is that?!

Stampin Up Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I cut my vellum at 1 7/8 x 3 1/2 and adhered it to the back with glue dots. I cut the letters from the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper using the Large Letter Framelits and adhered these to the vellum. I used Tear & Tape along the 1/4 edge to secure together.

A battery operated tealight fits inside for a nice glow. I added some Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon to tie it together for that “sparkle and shine”.

Stampin Up Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies and Large Letter Framelits Peace Luminaries for Christmas Home decor idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

You can make these to give as a gift or decorate your mantle or bookcase. These make the perfect night lite for a child’s bedroom (you could spell out the child’s name) or any room (use any die).

Here’s a few more photos of the Illumination.

I am thankful for our men and women in the Armed Forces throughout the world.  My thoughts and prayers are with those who lost their lives, so the world may someday enjoy world peace.

X is for BoX in a Card

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. I have been wanting to make today’s fun card for awhile now.  My son’s birthday is next month and we will be celebrating a little early when we get together for Easter next weekend.  My husband and I like to give our children “an experience” for their birthday and this year I have a fun event planned, something I know he has not done before.  This boX in a card is perfect to put a clue to his gift.

Stampin Up Happy Birthday Thinlits and True Gentleman masculine birthday card and gift box idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper for his card and box.  I absolutely love the plaid and love that the whole paper pack has a masculine feel! This fun card is really much easier to create than it looks. The card base is a standard 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.  Next, you need to cut out the section for the box to sit.  Keep your card folded and with the fold at the top, line up the card with the right side at 1 inch and cut from the top down to 2 inches.  Then move the card so it is lined up at the 2 1/2 inch mark on the left side and cut from the top down to the 2 inch point.

Turn your card to the side and cut between the lines to remove the 2 inch square (which is actually 2 x 4 when you open it).

To make the box you need a 3 x 3 piece of coordinating cardstock and a 6 x 6 piece of DSP.  Score the DSP at 2 inches on all 4 sides.  Trim in on the score lines on two opposite sides.  Apply glue in the 4 corners,  bring the middle flaps up, the back flaps forward, and the front flaps go back last.  This way you have smooth corners on the front of your box.

Stampin Up True Gentleman Designer Series Paper to make gift box

To make the lid, score just under 1/2 inch on all 4 sides. Trim in on score lines on two opposite ends, notch the corners, and fold on the score lines.  Apply glue to the four corners and adhere to form the lid.

I added a 1 3/4 x 5 1/2 strip of coordinating DSP to a layer of Gold Foil and adhered it to the front of my card.  I cut the Happy Birthday Thinlits in Very Vanilla cardstock and did a little “surgery”‘ with my paper snips to separate the words before adhering to the card.

I added some Gold Natural Trim to the box before placing it in the card.  I just love how the box sits in the card!

Stampin Up Happy Birthday Thinlits and True Gentleman masculine birthday card and gift box idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This would be a great way to gift cash for someone or put a small (light) gift or candy inside.  I printed out the reservation for our adventure.  He is going to be so surprised as he is planning to take me out for dinner for my birthday and I am going to give this to him after dinner.  Everyone else is planning to meet at the event and surprise him.  He does not read my blog so as long as his cousins don’t slip and tell I should be able to pull this adventure off!

Stampin Up Happy Birthday Thinlits and True Gentleman masculine birthday card and gift box idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The sentiment I used on the inside is from Birthday Wit Stamp Set.  I had to use this one for my son! Several years ago he came home and I was wrapping a gift for my husband for Valentine’s Day.  My son wanted to know what it was and I told him a paper shredder.  His comment was , “Oh boy, nothing says I Love You like a paper shredder!”  (Just to let you know, my husband loved his paper shredder and actually wore it out from using it all the time!  He even went out it replaced it the same day it broke!  I’d say he loves it!!)

Stampin Up Happy Birthday Thinlits and True Gentleman masculine birthday card and gift box idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The sentiment is stamped on a 2 x 5 1/4 piece of Very Vanilla.  You could just as easily stamp a vertical stamp.

Stampin Up Happy Birthday Thinlits and True Gentleman masculine birthday card and gift box idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Did you notice any changes here?  I started out thinking I was going to use Tranquil Tide for my son’s card then decided I liked Night of Navy better with the DSP I chose.  Now I have my next card almost done!

Hope you have an eXcellent day!

The “No Sentiment” box popped out at me.  I rarely make a card without a sentiment on the front so I thought I would challenge myself to use that element this week. I created a gift set of 3 x 3 cards.

Stampin Up Petal Passion 3 x 3 card gift set - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love to color (which may be one reason why I teach Pre K)!  I have shared many different coloring techniques on my blog (using aqua painters, blender pens, sponge daubers, etc.) For this project I used my Stampin’ Blends and the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper.

To order the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper and other Stampin Up products, visit my blog www.juststampin.com

The black and white designs are great on their own but I really like how you can customize the designs.  The flowers are so vibrant using the Stampin’ Blends and trust me, it is so easy to do…the markers do the work for you!

I am thrilled the pizza boxes from the Holiday Catalog made it on Carryover List. They are perfect for 3 x 3 cards and envelopes or food items.
Stampin Up Pizza Box idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
The DSP is 3 x 3 layered on a 3 1/4 Black square. I covered the top of the box with a 3 1/2 square of Rich Razzleberry and covered the sides with 1 x 3 1/2 strips in the same color. I added the gorgeous Whisper White Metallic Edge Ribbon as the finishing touch!  You could easily give the set of cards in black & white and let the recipient color them or enjoy some “coloring therapy” and give the set complete as I have done. Either way I think it makes a nice little gift.  I love having note cards on hand for any occasion and these fit the bill.  Stamp a sentiment inside or write a personalized note.
Here’s a tip for when you color with the Stampin’ Blends…put a piece of scrap paper under the image you are coloring becasue the color will bleed through.  You will want to adhere your colored piece to another layer. I cut my DSP in to 3 x 3 sqaures for this project.  I colored then adhered them on to 3 x 6 Thick Whisper White Cardstock (scored at 3″).  I hope this project inspires you to find time to create some handmade kindness!
You can purchase any of the products used to make today’s project from my online store or click on the images below for more information.  I invested in all the Stampin’ Blends and realize that can be a bit pricey starting out; however, I suggest you break it up over the next 3 months during Sale-A-Bration (Jan. 3 – Mar. 31) and earn a FREE item each time (with a qualifying purchase)!
