Keeping It Slim with Sand & Sea

I love the beach! When my toes are in the sand, I’m in my happy place! I enjoy combing the shore for shells and sea glass. Just smelling the salt air and listening to the waves relaxes me like nothing else. I am dreaming of a beach vacation! Next week is my two weeks “post vaccine” and after a year of staying home I am ready for some sand & sea! My husband and I are trying to decide on a new beach destination (in the USA) to visit. What’s your favorite beach vacation? I’d love for you to leave a comment below and help us decide.

Today I’ve combined my love for the sand & sea with a fun slimline card. (*The slimline card fits in a business size envelope and doesn’t cost any extra to mail!)

I used products from the Sand & Sea Collection to create my card.
Stampin' Up! Sand & Sea Suite Collection - for inspiration and ordering information visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
The Sand & Sea Suite Collection includes:
* Friends Are Like Seashells Photopolymer Stamp Set (10% off)
* Seaside Seashell Dies (10% off)
* Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper
* Pearlescent Specialty Paper
* Shimmering Shells Stickers
* Seashells 3D Embossing Folder
* Opal Rounds

This month I am featuring the Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle (from the Sand & Sea Suite) in my exclusive tutorials (free with a $50 purchase). I love this bundle!!!

The stamp set has great and versatile sentiments as well as beach images. The dies are awesome on their own and coordinate with the Seashells 3D Embossing folder. You can make an incredible background with this embossing folder or use the large die to cut the embossed shells like I did. I used the pearlescent paper and love the look! (You could sponge color on the embossed shells if you want.) Look at the texture you get from this embossing folder!

Here’s a close up of the embossing on my card.

I like to bring a little of the beach home with me!
My sand collection from my travels. Visit www.juststampin.com for inspiration and Stampin' Up! supplies.I have a sand collection from all the different beaches I’ve visited. (Oh the stories I could tell about some of this sand! FYI…trying to go through customs with sand in a plastic bag is not always easy!  LOL) I love the different colors and textures. It’s amazing how different the sand is from beach to beach. I have sand from as far north as Prince Edward Island and as far south as Cancun, Mexico. I also have sand from as far west as Hawaii and as far east as Normandy, France. I spend a lot of time on the east coast and have collected sand from Maine to Florida. My favorite is the pink sand from Bermuda! This is such a fun collection and brings a smile to my face.  It’s inexpensive and easy to document my travels with some Avery labels on jars. I wonder where my next sand will be from???? Help me decide! Leave a comment below suggesting a great beach getaway!

Do you like creating slimline cards? Here’s some I’ve shared previously. This size card is great for stamping images, showcasing embossing, or layering Designer Series Paper. It’s also a great size for sending a handwritten note as there’s plenty of space to write inside. *Click on the image to view the original post.

Here’s a “sweet” card I created showcasing the new In Colors.
Stampin' Up! 2021-2023 In Colors Sweet Ice Cream Bundle note card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
When I first saw the new In Colors they reminded me of a sweet sherbet.  Orange Sherbet is my favorite and the Pale Papaya looks good enough to eat!!! I used the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set for some tone on tone ice cream and punched them with the Ice Cream Cone Builder Set. The cone is punched from the Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper. This sentiment is perfect to go with these new In Colors!

Snowflake Wishes for the Pals Blog Hop

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created projects showing “My Favorite Things” from any of the two current catalogs or the upcoming catalog in January. We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

One of my favorite things to make is fun fold cards. I used the gorgeous Snowflake Wishes Bundle to create a lighted easel tent card for Christmas.Stampin' Up! Snowflake Wishes light up fun fold Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
This card would look great on a mantel or end table. It could also serve as a great little nightlight in a kids room or bathroom. I embossed a piece of vellum for the center piece using the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. When the card is closed you get a peek at the sentiment on the inside.

Here’s a few more photos showing the inside.

I stamped a snowflake on the inside where the tea light goes (just in case the recipient wondered where to place it. LOL) I cut a strip from the foam adhesive sheets to pop up the sentiment. The sentiment is cut using the stitched rectangle die from Ornate Layers. (That’s another set with some awesome dies!) I added the die cut snowflakes using mini glue dots and accented with Rhinestone Basic Jewels. I think this card looks pretty even when it’s not lit up!

The Snowflake Wishes Stamp Set and So Many Snowflakes Dies are not retiring; however, the bundle is retiring so if you want to save that extra 10% (and of course you do!!!) you need to purchase it by Jan. 4th.Stampin' Up! Snowflake Wishes Bundle - for inspiration, exclusive tutorials, and more, visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
The sentiments in this set are great for Christmas, friendship, thank you cards, and more! The “appropriately named” So Many Snowflake Dies are so unique (just like snowflakes)! I shared another card I made with this set yesterday. You can view it HERE.

Check back tomorrow for more details! Another one of my favorite things is a SALE! Don’t forget to check out the Clearance items and Year-End Closeout Sale. The Winter Snow Embossing Folder and Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper I used on today’s card are retiring and on sale while supplies last! You can view the list of products I used below.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Mark your calendars for our next blog hop on January 13th when our theme will be Time to Sale-A-Brate. Participants will showcase tags or 3D items that will be great for gifts for any occasion. Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft room.
