S is for Sympathy

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ll be sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! It’s good to have a few Sympathy cards on hand. Today’s card design is another one of those that you can easily change the sentiment and use for any occasion.

Stampin Up Flourishing Phrases and Healing Hugs Sympathy Card Idea using Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Anyone else in love with the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper?! I love the rich colors and hand-painted impressionistic imagery! I chose Blackberry Bliss and Purple Posy for my layered background. I stamped the flower from Healing Hugs in Purple Posy.  I love to stamp a sentiment over an image and this worked great by stamping off the flower first.

Sympathy cards are not something we enjoy having to make but we can make them beautiful to remember a wonderful life. I had to make this card in shades of purple in honor of the person who passed. (It was her favorite color.)  I love that we can add that personal touch by making our own cards!

Stampin Up Flourishing Phrases and Healing Hugs Sympathy Card Idea using Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s the measurements if you would like to make this simple card design:

  • Card Base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 (Blackberry Bliss)
  • Layer 1: 4 x 5 1/4 (Purple Posy)
  • DSP Layer: 3 7/8 x 4 (Perennial Essence)

Adhere the DSP then wrap the ribbon before adhering the layer to the card base. The sentiment layer was cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and layered on a piece of Blackberry Bliss cut with the Layering Circles Framelits. Attach the metallic thread to the back of the sentiment layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhere to the card. Finish it off with a few Metallic Pearls.

*Note – Stampin’ Up! announce that the Purple Posy ink passed its last sample test and things are moving forward. They have placed orders with their manufacturer to begin producing the ink pads and refills. They do not know the timeframe when this ink will be available, but they will update again in September. In the meantime, if you must have this ink, you can purchase the In Color Markers to color your stamps.  When I first started stamping I bought all the markers before I started to collect the ink pad because it was cheaper to get all the colors that way.  I still use my markers especially with tiny sentiments as I find it easier to ink them up without getting ink on the edges and transferring to my card.  I also like to coordinate colors when addressing envelopes I’ve stamped on the front.  How do you use the Stampin’ Write Markers?

Many thanks for all the retirement wishes! I was thrilled to read many of you enjoy stamping in your retirement.  It seems it was pretty close as to the favorite retirement card (vertical or horizontal) but horizontal won by a few votes!  I also have another winner to announce, the winner of the “retirement” blog candy…..Judy!  I realize we have 2 Judy’s who posted and rather than tell you which one was chosen by random.org I am going to send some retired goodies to both!  So Judy, (and Judy) , please email me (j.stark@myactv.net) your address and I will put your blog candy in the mail! Congratulations!

Many thanks to everyone who took the time to comment! I do love reading each and every one!

G is for Get Well

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ll be sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! I have a Get Well card idea for today. (I never seem to have extra of these on hand when I need one.)

Stampin Up! Healing Hugs Get Well card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the Healing Hugs Stamp Set, Bird Ballard Designer Series Paper, and Layering Circles Dies. I chose one of the new In Colors, Rococo Rose, for the flower and ribbon.

Here’s all the details if you would like to make this card:

  • Card Base: Crumb Cake Cardstock 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
  • Layer 1: Rococo Rose Cardstock 4″ x 5 1/4″.
  • Layer 2: Whisper White 3 3/4″ x 5. Stamp design in crumb cake in lower right.
  • DSP Layer:  3 1/2″ x 4″.  Adhere to Whisper White.
  • Wrap a piece of Rococo Rose Ribbon around the white layer and adhere on back.  Add ribbon bow to the card with Glue Dots.
  • Stamp sentiment and leaves in Crumb Cake ink and flower in Rococo Rose ink on Whisper White cardstock. Cut sentiment with Layering Circles Die.  Fussy cut leaves and flower.
  • Use Layering Circles to cut Whisper White and Crumb Cake circles.  Adhere together with Snail Adhesive.  Attach to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Embellish the envelope with a 2 1/4″ x 6″ piece of DSP.  Trim around the flap with Paper Snips.

In Color Daisy Cards

Stampin' Up! Daisy Lane 2019-2021 In Color note card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
2019-2021 In Colors

I hope these simple note cards make you smile! I know they make me smile and they are super easy and fun to make.  I used the new Daisy Lane stamp set I got for FREE at OnStage.

Stampin Up Daisy Lane stamp set - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I am super excited as this stamp set has a coordinating daisy punch that is a little smaller than our current daisy punch I used on today’s cards.  I love how both stamp sets and punches coordinate! These stamps and punches work for any occasion cards.  Who wouldn’t love a daisy to brighten their day?! Here’s a closeup look at each card.

The base of these cards are Whisper White note cards. (Love them!) I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock 3 1/4 x 4 3/4 to layer on top.  First, I cut the scallop circle using the Layering Circles Framelits. Then I stamped the sentiment below and embossed it with the Subtles Embossing Folder.  Adhere it to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals or Foam Adhesive Strips.  I stamped the daisies with the In Color inks on In Color cardstock and punched out with the Daisy Punch. I adhered two daisies together with a Stampin’ Dimensional and used the third daisy to punch the center with 1/2″ Circle punch.  I chose to sponge the edges to add dimension then adhered it to the center of the daisy with a glue dot.  I punched the leaves out of Soft Sea Foam using the leaf punch and adhered to the back of the daisies with glue dots then adhered it inside the scallop circle. Quick & easy! I stamped the envelopes to coordinate.
