Mystery Blog Candy Winner

Blog Hop Mystery Candy badge

Earlier this week I participated in the 10th Anniversary Pals Blog Hop! We promised to announce our mystery blog candy winners today!  Do you want to know what I’m giving away as my mystery blog candy surprise? One of the projects I shared for the Blog Hop was a Honey Bee Treat Holder made with the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies.

Stampin' Up! Honey Bee Mini Curvy Keepsake Box idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies was a Holiday Favorite and is still available online.  I love to make little gifts to give to friends, my hairdresser, the ladies at the post office, and others who provide services throughout the month. I was thrilled when I found these adorable Lindt chocolate bees and ladybugs at Target.  They are the perfect compliment to the Honey Bee Stamp Set and Detailed Bee Dies (and the Little Ladybug Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies).

For inspiration using these candy bees and ladybugs with Stampin' Up! Honey Bee Bundle and Little Ladybug Stamp Set and Coordinating ladybug dies visit www.juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Each month I feature a Stamp of the Month on my blog. This month I am featuring the Honey Bee Stamp Set and Detailed Bee Dies. When you shop with me I send you a handmade thank you card in the mail. This month’s thank you card is a fun fold pocket card I featured on my blog HERE. (Click HERE if you would like the tutorial.) In addition, I offer 3 (or more) FREE exclusive card tutorials featuring the stamp of the month when you order $40 or more. A Bonus each month is a Free card kit to make one of the cards featured in the tutorial if you purchase the Stamp of the month. Another special this month (because it’s my Stampin’ Anniversary and Birthday month) is a sweet Honey Bee jar I featured HERE. (There’s also a drawing entry for the Little Ladybug Stamp set with any order in March.) I appreciate each and every order and love to reward my customers! And I’m excited to share ALL OF THIS as my Mystery Blog Candy! The lucky winner will get….

Buzzing with Excitement for the Pals Blog Hop

Pals Blog Hop Badge March 2020Blog Hop Mystery Candy badge

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. This month we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Pals Blog Hop with “Critters” from the Stampin’ Pretty Pals. Many of the design team members are offering “Mystery Blog Candy” of their choice to 1 lucky winner. To play along, just leave a comment on as many blog posts as desired. A random winner will be announced on a subsequent blog post by each participating design team member. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you “hop”(or “buzz”) along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin' Up! Honey Bee Mini Curvy Keepsake Box idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These little critters are “buzzing” with excitement! I started blogging just before my youngest left for college. (She set up this blog to keep me busy so I wouldn’t miss her so much.) It’s hard to believe she will be graduating in less than two months! (Fun Fact….Her college mascot is named Buzz.)  Time does fly (or buzz) by when you’re having fun! I’m celebrating my 7 year anniversary with Stampin’ Up! this week! (I made a smart decision and joined during Sale-A-Bration!) I have met so many wonderful friends through my journey with Stampin’ Up! This card is headed to one of those sweet friends.

Stampin' Up! Honey Bee Thinking of You peek-a-boo card idea for a friend - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love this color combination! This is one of those cards that just evolved as I was creating with the Honey Bee Bundle (one of my favorite sets in the Mini Catalog).  I was planning to make a wreath which turned in to a “peek-a-boo” card when I got ink on the card front. Rather than start over I just punched it out.  Anyway, in the end I really love how it turned out. Here’s the card details:

  • Card Base: 4 1/4 x 11 Whisper White scored at 5 1/2 for a side fold card
  • Inside card: 4 x 5 1/4 Basic Black and 3 3/4 x 5 Whisper White
  • Adhere 1 1/4″ Daffodil Delight and 1″ strip of DSP along left side of card front.
  • Punch (or die cut) a 2 1/4″ Circle in the card front and another with the Golden Honey DSP. Adhere Circle DSP through the opening on the front to inside of card. *This helps guide you where to write or stamp on the inside so it won’t show through.
  • Stamp flowers around the circle using Memento Black Ink and color with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends (lightly) or Watercolor Pencil.
  • Make a double bow with Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Ruched Ribbon and attach with a Glue Dot.
  • Stamp sentiment on 1/2″ strip of Daffodil Delight and notch the ends. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Stamp bee on scrap piece of Whisper White and cut with Detailed Bee Dies. Color with Daffodil Delight Blends and Clear Wink of Stella. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensional.
  • Punch (or die cut) a 2″ circle from Basic Black cardstock then center and cut 2 1/2″ Circle to create a frame.  Glue on inside of card around the circle opening.

Honey Bee Thank You, New Tutorials, and More for March!

Stampin' Up! Honey Bee fun fold Thank You card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
It’s March…Spring is on it’s way! It’s also my birthday month which means lots of fun and celebrating!  I love to offer specials during my birthday month and this year is no exception! I’m “buzzing” with excitement to share a new fun fold pocket card and sweet treat honey jar.

Stampin' Up! Honey Bee fun fold Thank You card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I send thank you cards each month to everyone who places an order with me. This is the thank you card I will be sending out this month.  What’s cool is you can slip my note out, add one of your own and send it on to someone else! (My family and friends love to recycle the cards I send them and this one makes it so easy! LOL)

You will also receive one of these adorable honey jars with an online order of $40 or more!!! The jar is filled with individually wrapped candy.

Stampin Up! Honey Bee and Little Ladybug treat jars - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These are so stinkin cute! I’d like to give a shout out and thanks to Ronda Wade for sharing this idea! I made these for the hairdressers, cleaning ladies, post office workers, etc. The candy is honey filled and so soothing and yummy! You can change out the sentiment and it would make a great little get well gift for someone. (The sentiment below is from the Harvest Hello stamp set that was carried over from the Holiday catalog.)

Stampin' Up! Harvest Hello and Honey Bee get well gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

UPDATE 3/2/20- I ordered the Hive Jars (3 oz.) from fillmorecontainer.com. *Note – You order the jars and lids separately.

I have been having so much fun creating with the Honey Bee Stamp Set and coordinating Detailed Bee Dies.  I am featuring this bundle in my Free Tutorials this month!  Simply place an online order of $40 or more and you will receive THREE exclusive tutorials (via email) featuring this stamp set.  That’s in addition to the thank you card and honey jar! This stamp set has some great sentiments! I love how Stampin’ Up! included two flowers curving in opposite directions (for a mirror image) and different size bees.

You can even use the dies to cut out some of the bees from the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper. You can get the paper Free with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration. (I can’t get enough of this paper!!!!)

The “sweet” sentiment I used on the honey jar is from the Little Ladybug Stamp Set.  This stamp set is a hostess exclusive during Sale-A-Bration.
