N is for Note

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 love the Stampin’ Up! Note Cards & Envelopes. These are the perfect size for a handwritten thank you card or to send a quick note to a friend.

Stampin’ Up! Note Cards & Envelopes come in sets of 20 in Whisper White, Very Vanilla and the NEW Scalloped with dainty scalloped edges on the cards and matching envelopes. The new Scalloped set has 5 each of 4 colors (Balmy Blue, Old Olive, light pink, or Terracotta Tile).  These are adorable and the best part is they are super economical!

I have been on a roll making note cards and have lots of ideas to share with you today starting with my new favorite, the Scalloped Note Cards & Envelopes.

Stampin'Up! A Little Lace Thinking of You Scalloped Note Card idea with Daisy punch - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Stampin'Up! A Little Lace Thank You Scalloped Note Card idea with Daisy punch - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used A Little Lace Stamp Set and stamped the background image in Early Espresso. The new medium daisy punch is the same size as the flower image.  (I just love how Stampin’ Up! coordinates products!) I had fun with the daisy punch and cut some from white cardstock, colored cardstock, designer series paper, and also stamped some using the Daisy Lane stamp set. Here’s a look at each of the different cards.

Stampin'Up! A Little Lace and Daisy Lane Scalloped Note Card idea with Daisy punch - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the Brights and In Color 6×6 Designer Series Paper Packs to cut the strips I adhered along the bottom. I accented the daisies with the Gold Gems and In Color Faceted Dots.

I got the Delightful Day stamp set for free at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage convention. I couldn’t wait to make the cards shown on page 34 in the annual catalog using the Scalloped Note Cards. Look how cute these cards look with the stamped flowers.

The White Stampin’ Chalk Marker and colored markers add a beautiful finishing touch! My daughter didn’t think they needed the strip of DSP at the bottom but I like how it highlights the scalloped edges.

One thing I like to do when I see a card I like is try to create something similar using different stamp sets and paper I have. Here’s another version of the cards above using a stamp set you won’t find in the annual catalog, Celebrate with Cake.

The hearts and flowers are from the Celebrate with Cake Stamp Set found in the Beginner Brochure. (Click on the link in the sidebar or at the bottom to view the brochure.) I used the Well Written Dies for the sentiments.

V is for Vinyl Stickers

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. The Painted Love Gold Vinyl stickers found on page 19 in the Occasions catalog are easy to miss.  They are hard to see in the catalog so here’s a photo in case you missed them too!

Stampin Up Painted Love God Vinyl Stickers - for inspiration and ordering visit www.juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These self-adhesive hearts, borders, and shapes in brilliant gold coordinate with images in the Sure Do Love You Stamp Set; however, they can easily be used with any stamp set or stand on their own. I have several cards (and a treat box) to share with you today using these stickers with the Petal Passion and True Gentleman Suites.

Stampin Up Petal Palette Wedding Card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The layout for this card was inspired by a card design from a fellow PAL, Nancy Gleason. I love using the ribbon to highlight the sentiment.  Both the sentiment and flower are from the Petal Palette stamp set.  I stamped the floral image in Black Memento ink and cut it out with the matching dies then fussy cut the flower apart to make it fit the card better. (I used the other piece from the flower on my next card.) I adhered the ribbon and sentiment banner on top of the vinyl sticker. I colored the flower with Stampin’ Blends and adhered it off to the side with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The base of my card is a Whisper White note card. The Powder Pink layer measures 4 5/8 x 3 1/8 and the Whisper White layer measures 4 1/2 x 3.

Stampin Up Petal Palette Wedding Card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My niece is getting married this summer and this is the perfect size card for a gift card.

My next card uses a different vinyl sticker and another sentiment from the Petal Palette stamp set. This sweet card could be used for several occasions (engagement, shower, new baby, anniversary, wedding, job promotion, etc.)

Stampin Up Petal Palette Wedding, Anniversary, or Baby Card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The flower image is the leftover piece from the card above. I embossed the card base with the Petal Pair Embossing folder and added my layered image on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Whisper White stamped layer measures 3 x 3 1/2 and is layered on a 3 1/4 x 3 3/4 piece of Calypso Coral. The flower is colored with Stampin’ Blends and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The ribbon is adhered with a glue dot on top of the vinyl sticker.  I added a matching sticker on the front of the envelope and embossed the flap.

Stampin Up Petal Palette Wedding, Anniversary, or Baby Card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The gold vinyl stickers are versatile to use so many different ways! They make it quick & easy to embellish cards and envelopes or add a special touch to a treat box.

Stampin Up Clear Tiny Treat Box with Painted Love Gold Vinyl Stickers and Ghirardelli Chocolate - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Stampin Up Clear Tiny Treat Box with Painted Love Gold Vinyl Stickers and Ghirardelli Chocolate - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love these clear tiny treat boxes from Stampin’ Up! They make a quick & easy gift! I filled this one with 6 Ghirardelli chocolates, added a bow and a few vinyl stickers and I was done!  You could put a little jar of jam, a Yankee votive candle, or any other small item inside.

Here’s a card idea I got from Linda Heller that I made for my son and husband for Valentine’s Day using the vinyl stickers and True Gentleman Designer Series Paper.  (I don’t know why I didn’t share them before.)

Stampin Up True Gentleman card idea with Painted Love Gold Vinyl Stickers - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Either of these cards could be used for an anniversary or anytime you want to let someone know you love them. The True Gentleman Designer Series Paper make these cards perfect for the men in your life.  The sentiment I used on the inside is also from Petal Palette.  I love the sentiments in this stamp set and from the comments on my blog last week many of you do too!!

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.
