So Much Happy for Ariane’s Birthday!

Today is my daughter’s birthday! I wish we could be together to celebrate! Here’s the birthday “cake” card and little gift I sent her. Stampin' Up! So Much Happy birthday card and acetate gift box idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
Can you guess her favorite color? I always make purple cards for her! I love this birthday cake card idea from Brenda Quintana.  It is real easy to make with the Happy Dies. I used both the dies and stamp set from the So Much Happy Bundle to create this gift set. Stampin' Up! So Much Happy bundle - visit juststampin.com for inspiration and ordering information - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
The So Much Happy Bundle includes the So Much Happy Stamp Set and the Happy Dies. Make birthday cards, graduation gifts, and other papercrafting projects with the So Much Happy Stamp Set. Decorate your projects with fun die-cut elements—balloons, streamers, and more with the coordinating Happy Dies! You can create so many fun projects and cards with this bundle! Here’s the details to make the card:

Measurements:

  • Purple Posy (Card Base): 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2, scraps to punch flowers
  • DSP (Playing With Patterns): 4 1/4 x 4 3/8, 1/2 x 4 (inside)
  • Whisper White (icing): 2 pieces 4 1/4 x 1, 4 x 4  (inside)

Directions:

  1. Fold and burnish card base.
  2. Line the top of the letters on the Happy Die with the fold of the card base and run it through the die cut machine.
  3. Adhere the DSP to the card front.
  4. Use the Scalloped edge die to cut 2 pieces for icing. *Run each piece through with different parts of the die to get a different look for each.
  5. Adhere icing strips to the front of the card.
  6. Punch flowers using the Small Bloom Punch and Confetti Flowers Border Punch. Adhere to card with Mini Glue Dots. Add Pearl Basic Jewels to flower centers.
  7. Adhere Whisper White layer inside.  Stamp sentiment in Highland Heather and adhere DSP strip along the bottom.

I have been making a lot of these acetate gift boxes lately.  I enjoy making cards and gifts to coordinate!
Stampin' Up! Clear Acetate Gift Box idea with So Much Happy stamp set - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I enjoyed reading your comments and ideas for what to put in these 3 1/8 x 3 1/8 acetate boxes! Here’s what I put in this one.

A year ago I never would have thought that I’d be looking for a necklace to attach a mask. It’s a useful and practical gift for this year.  I also added some chocolate (of course)! The acetate box holds 6 wrapped Hershey nuggets as well as the necklace. I used a piece of coordinating cardstock in the front of the box and cut 6 1x 3 in. strips to wrap the nuggets.  I added a small pearl and flowers punched with the Small Bloom Punch and Confetti Flowers Border Punch to each one. Usually we like to give a birthday “experience” every year but there’s certainly nothing usual about this year!  This year has provided enough new “experiences” and she wants/needs a desk for her apartment.  I’m hoping this birthday is better than last year! If you follow my blog you may remember she had to take her graduate exam on her birthday last year and the Uber van she was in was involved in an accident. She spent most of her birthday in the hospital.
She’s not planning to go anywhere today!!!

Today’s the day I promised to announce the blog candy winner of the kit to make the poinsettia acetate box. And the winner is…Bernice P! Congratulations Bernice!

Did you know you save 10% when you purchase the bundle? The sentiments and fonts in this stamp set are one of my favorites this holiday season! And I love these dies! They cut and emboss. Here’s a little tip: Put a piece of removable tape (or sticky note) to to keep the petals and outline together to cut and emboss at the same time with just 1 roll through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine! It is quick & easy!Stampin' Up! Poinsettia Dies - for tips and inspiration visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Framed Sunflowers Card and Tealight Candle Box Gift Idea

I can’t stop creating with the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle! It is such a versatile set! It’s on my list of Favorite Things from the annual catalog and today’s projects are just another reason why! I love making cards to coordinate with gifts!

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers and Well Written gift set idea for a friend - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

It’s easy to see the inspiration for my card and box came from the adorable tea light candles I purchased from Amazon. I love that 4 candles fit perfectly in the Mini Pizza Boxes for a cute little gift to “brighten” someone’s day!

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Mini Pizza Box gift idea for a friend - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The sentiment from the Paper Pumpkin Sunshine kit was perfect to go with the candles! I stamped the small sunflowers in Bumblebee Ink and colored them with So Saffron and Cinnamon Cider Blends. I used the Layering Squares Dies to cut out the sentiment and scalloped layer. It makes a nice statement when you open the box. And you don’t even have to untie the gorgeous gingham ribbon to get inside! I just wrapped that around the box, tied a bow in front, and secured with a Mini Glue Dot.

I am really missing getting together with my friends!!! The Well Written Dies (and coordinating Well Said Stamp Set) have sentiments for so many occasions. This one is simply stated!

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers and Well Written Dies missing you card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The key to making this card easy was using the new Adhesive Sheets (found on page 172 in the annual catalog). Trust me…you need to add these to your next order!!! I easily adhered my cardstock to the adhesive sheet, ran the sunflower die and the sentiments through the die cut machine, removed the adhesive backing and adhered to the card! So simple!!! I added an embossed layer with the Scripty 3D embossing folder.  I love how this simple step adds a little texture! I used the Stitched Rectangles to make my frame and cut strips of the new Foam Adhesive Sheets to adhere the frame to the card.

I wanted to carry the framed sunflower look from the card to my gift box.  I used the Layering Squares Dies and the same technique with the Adhesive Sheets for the sunflower and word die.
