Stampin Up Touches of Texture and Perennial Birthday embossed Birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I love to make birthday cards! Several friends have birthdays this month so I decided to make a birthday card for card club this month. I used one of my favorite color combinations, yellow and black.  What’s funny is without even realizing it I wore a pair of yellow capris with a black top to card club.  One of the ladies pointed out I “matched my card”.  LOL

The floral image is from the Touches of Texture Stamp Set. Stampin Up Touches of Texture Stamp set - visit juststampin.com to order Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This set of 15 images feature an eclectic array of useful and fun styles which are great for focal points or backgrounds. The textures and elements in this stamp set will add dimension and character to any of your cards.

I always like to give several options for sentiments to my card club members and this month I also shared several different embossing folder options.Stampin Up Touches of Texture embossed Birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love embossing folders! They are such a quick & easy (and inexpensive!) way to add texture and dimension. You really get a big bang for your buck. I like to emboss the envelopes too! I used the Layered Leaves, Tufted, and Subtle Embossing Folders.  Here is a closer look at each.

I even embossed the little flag on the last one with the Subtle folder.  It reminds me of linen fabric.

You could use a variety of sentiments with this card design. The sentiments I used are from Beautiful Bouquet and Perennial Birthday. I stamped each in Memento Black ink.

Thankful for my Stampin’ Sisters

When I joined Stampin’ Up! 4 years ago I never dreamed how much it would enrich my life. Stampin’ Up! is much more than a company with great papercrafting products. It is a community filled with amazing people with the biggest hearts. I am ever so grateful for the kindness and support from my “Stampin’ Sisters” following the loss of a dear friend. I have been busy making thank you cards this weekend.

Stampin Up Painted Harvest Thank You card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This clean and simple card is made with some of my favorite things. I absolutely love the Painted Harvest Bundle in the Holiday Catalog!  The good news is the Painted Harvest stamp set and leaf punch will carry over after the holiday catalog retires on January 2nd.  However, you will no longer be able to purchase it as a bundle (and save 10%) after Jan. 2nd! (If you don’t already own this set, you can save even more by purchasing it tomorrow during the 24 hours of Free shipping!)

The base of my card is my favorite go to for thank you cards, Stampin’ Up! Note Cards and Envelopes! Biggest bang for your buck (20 note cards & envelopes for $6)! I embossed the envelope flap and very vanilla layer on my card with the Layered Leaves embossing folder (another one of my favorite items). I adhered the burlap ribbon with a strip of Tear & Tape and punched two leaves from Old Olive cardstock.  The sentiment is stamped in Crumb Cake ink, punched out with the Pretty Label Punch, and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Quick & easy with a little added texture!

Here are some beautiful flowers, cards, and gifts I received from team members and friends.

A Sneak Peek at Painted Harvest for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #11

Stampin Up sunflower made with Painted Harvest Stamp Set and Layered Leaves Embossing Folder. For inspiration, directions, and more visit www.juststampin.com

When my son was little we planted sunflowers.  All summer long he watched them grow and got so excited the taller they grew.  He couldn’t wait to get dressed, run outside, and stand beside the sunflowers to see how tall they were in comparison to himself. He would report daily and tell me it was as tall as his “boo boo”, up to his knees… on up until they were over his head.

I noticed these sunflowers in my neighborhood the other day and they made me smile as I was reminded of that summer garden.

I was inspired to create today’s card using the new Painted Harvest Stamp Set which will be available in the new Holiday Catalog starting Sept. 1. It will be available as a bundle with the new leaf punch (Love it!!!). This is my favorite bundle in the new catty! It could have something to do with the wonderful memories it evokes or just the beautiful images you get with the two-step stamping.

I used elements from this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge board to create this card. I choose 3 in a row across the middle: flower, thank you, angled.  It also works diagonally: yellow, thank you, leaf. Here’s this week’s challenge board.

My card base is Garden Green embossed with the Layered Leaves Textured Impression Embossing Folder. I added a 1 1/2 x 5 strip of DSP from the new Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper and some Jute Twine (Avail. Sept. 1).

I love all the texture on this card! I used So Saffron and Crushed Curry ink for the two-step stamping on my sunflower. I added Early Espresso ink to the center and while it was still wet I took my blender pen and just pulled out some color from the center to highlight the petals. I popped up the stamped layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I am going to put this card in the mail to my son. He is so happy in his new job and I'm so thankful I got to spend time with him this summer.  I think he will get a kick out of this old photo. 

I stamped the flower again on the inside where I will write a personal note.
