Stampin Up Heartfelt Blooms Thinking of You and Thank You card ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today’s cards are made using the distINKtive stamp set, Heartfelt Blooms. You can get this set for FREE during Sale-A-Bration (through March 31, 2018) with a qualifying purchase.

Heartfelt Blooms stamp set

Heartfelt Blooms is a beautiful, photographic bouquet in a gorgeous vintage look. A one-step stunner for all your projects! The new Distinktive stamp lays down the ink at different opacities, giving the finished image more depth. I love that there are 3 great sentiments for different occasions. Here’s a close up of the stamped image.

When I make a card I usually stamp more than one.  I like to play around with different color combos, sentiments, etc. I chose Night of Navy with Bermuda Bay and Fresh Fig with Blushing Bride. I can’t wait to make more! I also played around with adding pearls or not. I like it both ways so I guess it depends whether or not you want to add the extra postage. This is such a clean & simple card and quick & easy to make! You can use it for many different occasions!

Here’s the measurements:

Card Base 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.

Layer 1: 3 3/4 x 5

Whisper White Stamped Layer: 3 1/2 x 4 3/4

I adhered the layered image to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I love to stamp my envelopes to match. It really adds that extra special touch.  Get in the habit of stamping your envelope when you stamp your card and it takes no time at all!

Check out this video for more information and ideas.

You can stamp in one color like I did or stamp in a neutral color and color in your favorite shades. Here’s another look at the samples from the video.

I wanted to use all 3 sentiments from this set so I made a sympathy card in Night of Navy and Crumb Cake with Gingham Ribbon.

Seas the Day!

Simple card using So Many Shells Stamp Set from Stampin Up! For simple card inspiration visit www.juststampin.com

I find inspiration for cards everywhere! When my toes are in the sand, I’m in my happy place! I love the beach! I enjoy combing the shore for shells and sea glass (and an occasional shark’s tooth). Just smelling the salt air and listening to the waves relaxes me like nothing else. I can sit on the beach with a good book til the sun goes down. This picture in one of the shops on the Cape caught my eye. It provided the inspiration for today’s card.

Here’s the simple card I made using the So Many Shells stamp set.

I love this saying!  It can be used for many different occasions. The So Many Shells stamp set has great sentiments and gorgeous fonts!

This card was quick & easy to make. I cut a square from a piece of 3 3/4 x 5 Sahara Sand cardstock using the Layering Squares Framelits.  I used Sahara Sand ink to stamp the sentiment. I adhered the Sahara Sand layer to the Whisper White card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals .   I stamped the shell on Very Vanilla with VersaMark ink and added Dazzling Diamonds for a little glitz.  I fussy cut the shell and adhered it with a Stampin’ Dimensional. How simple is that?! Take a look around and see what inspiration you can find for your next card. Check back tomorrow to see a stepped up version of this card.

My vacation is almost over.  I have had so much fun spending time with my son, family, and friends.  It has been a busy month yet relaxing at the same time. When I travel I like to collect something from some of the places I visit.  Can you guess what it is?  Leave a comment with what you think I collect for a chance to win some blog candy. Check back tomorrow to find out (and see my stepped up version of today’s card.)

Let’s Celebrate!

Today is my 200th blog post! It has been so much fun sharing with you!!! The idea to start this blog was my daughter’s brainstorm as a way to keep me busy (so I wouldn’t miss her) while she was away at college. Your comments have not only inspired me but helped me embrace this transition in life. I love creating and sharing with others and I have met so many wonderful people through this journey. Thank you for being my cyber friends!!

Let’s celebrate!  As promised, I am giving away some blog candy! Leave me a comment letting me know something you like about my blog or something you would like to see in future blog posts. I am always learning and trying new things and I will do my best to continue to help and inspire you.

Here’s what I’m giving away:

  • Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack
  • So Very Much Stamp Set
  • A handmade card from me

Deadline for blog candy comments is Wednesday, March 8 at 2:00 PM (EST).  (Now why did I pick 2:00???) I’ll choose a random comment and announce the winner on Thursday. *Note:  I can only ship within the U.S.

In addition to the prize above the winner will receive today’s card.  Let’s talk about this card… I love embossing folders!  I think you get the biggest bang for your buck with these. They add texture and interest to a card. The Celebrations Duo Textured Impressions Embossing Folders are unique…they create a debossed impression. I also used the Confetti Embossing Folder which is fun for many occasions. The focal point of this card is the cool Star Blast Edgelits Dies cut from Gold Foil. The finishing touch is the gold bow which I attached with a glue dot.  This card was quick & easy to create.

Have a wonderful day!
