The Country Club Suite and So Sentimental Thank You

Did anyone else think of Caddyshack when you saw the Country Club Suite? (I love Chevy Chase and Bill Murray!) How appropriate that I am introducing this suite on Groundhog Day! LOL

The products in the new Country Club Suite are perfect for masculine cards! My husband is not a golfer (which is kind of ironic because we lived with a golf course view for 10 years). The double-sided designs on the Country Club Designer Series Paper is the perfect backdrop for non golfers too! My husband retired on Friday (after 47 years in education) and has been getting all kinds of well wishes.  I have enjoyed reading all the cards and notes he’s received and I know it makes a huge difference to him to realize how much he is appreciated! (The power of a handwritten card/note!) He asked me to make him some thank you cards.

I started with Stampin’ Up!’s Note Cards & Envelopes…my favorite for thank you cards! I chose the So Sentimental Stamp Set. I love the variety of sentiments in this set! The stamp set and coordinating Stitched So Sweetly Dies are available as a bundle for a 10% savings!

A Showcase of Valentines

I am often so busy creating that I don’t always get to photograph and blog about each card or gift I make. To me what’s most important is to share that handmade kindness and make someone smile. Today I have three different Valentine’s Day cards I made this year which I did manage to take a photograph or two before sending.

My first card today was for my son. It was made using products from the All My Love Suite.

Stampin Up Valentines Day card idea using the Meant to Be Stamp Set and Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My son loves to snowboard and he is heading to Colorado at the end of this month for a ski vacation. I know he will appreciate the little gift I tucked inside to enjoy the slopes in Vail! This card is clean & simple and full of love!

Yesterday I shared one of my favorite Sale-A-Bration stamp sets, Part of My Story.  I promised to show you another card I made using the same sentiment.  (If you missed yesterday’s post, click HERE to view.)  I love that this sentiment can be used any time of the year.  I enjoyed making these simple Valentine cards for my friends!

I used Stampin’ Up!’s Whisper White note cards & envelopes which made creating quick, easy, and economical!  Great for when having to make multiples! I also used the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies to cut the hearts (just like I did for all of today’s cards). These dies are gorgeous with stitching and scalloped details and can be used year round for wedding, anniversary, or other lovely occasions!

Check out the long scalloped die at the bottom.  You can use this die to add detail and stitching on an envelope flap and much more! How cool is that?! (Special thanks to Mary Fish for sharing that tip!)

Next, here’s a pop up gift card holder I made for my daughter. Her college apartment is across the street from Panera so I know she will enjoy this treat.Stampin Up Pop Up Gift Card Holder idea using Well Written Framelits Dies and Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love how the heart gift card coordinates with the colors in the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Check back tomorrow and I will share all the details how to make this pop up gift card holder.

Previously I shared a project I made for my husband.  I’m giving him “the key to my heart”.  If you missed that project you can view it HERE.

I hope you are surrounded by love today. I am reminded of a simple poem I read to my students recently… “There are silver ships, There are gold ships, But the best of all is friendship!”

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!
