You can use the Timeless Label Punch, Stitched Nested Dies, or the different Layering Shapes Dies to highlight the sentiments on your projects.  I created four cards to share with you using the Everything Festive Stamp Set and Scalloped Note Cards & Envelopes.

I used several common elements on each of these cards. The sentiments are from the Everything Festive stamp set, heat embossed and cut with the Layering Ovals Dies. I wanted to use the layered scallop around the sentiment to tie it in with the scalloped note cards & envelopes. Each card has a 1 1/2″ strip of Designer Series Paper layered with Foil or Glimmer Paper. The inside of the card has a 1/2″ strip of the DSP with a 1/4″ strip of the same foil or glimmer paper. I had so much fun decorating the envelopes too! Here’s a picture of each card and coordinating envelope.

This card uses the Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper, Silver Glimmer Paper, and Silver Embossing Powder. I heat embossed the envelope with snowflakes from the Seasonal Wreaths Stamp Set.

I couldn’t resist making another card with this gorgeous DSP from Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper. It’s layered with copper foil. The sentiment is heat embossed with copper embossing powder. Here’s a peek at how I layered the bottom of the card on the inside.

The repeated layers ties it all together and the envelope gives a sneak peek at what’s inside.

This is my favorite one! I just love the little spider on the envelope! My friend, Rosanne Mulhern (heartfeltstamping.com), was visiting for the weekend and she suggested adding the spider. We always have so much fun stamping together and bouncing ideas off each other. The DSP is from Monster Bash and the sentiment on the inside is from the Wonderfully Wicked Stamp Set. (The spider is from the coordinating Wicked Dies. *These are available as a bundle.)

My last card is intended for Valentine’s Day; however, this sentiment could be used for any time of the year!

Stampin' Up! Everything Festive Valentine card idea using Scalloped Note Card and Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I stamped the sentiment for this one in Real Red Ink then heat embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. The red & white striped DSP is from the Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper and layered with Red Glimmer Paper. I added a red glimmer heart on the envelope with a glue dot.  It is punched from the Every Season Punch Pack.  I used the coordinating stamp set, To Every Season,  for the inside sentiment. (The stamp set and set of 4 punches are available as a bundle too!)

I stamped the sentiment off to the side so I could write a personal message.

I just love how the Scalloped Note Cards & Envelopes were the perfect colors for my seasonal holiday cards! The note cards & envelopes come in a set of 20 (5 each of 4 colors: Balmy Blue, Old Olive, Powder Pink, Terracotta Tile). You can see more ideas for these note cards HERE.

A Treat And A Tip For Your Tuesday

Yesterday I promised to share with you a treat holder I made for my customers who shopped with me in April. I enjoy sending my card kits and little gifts to thank everyone who shops with me. I truly appreciate each and every order and hope this brightens their day.


Did you know Ghirardelli made strawberry filled chocolates? When I saw these I knew I could use the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper to make a fun treat holder for them.  This origami fold has been around forever! (I remember making these when I was in school to use as a drinking cup.)  Today I have a quick tip to help you line up the folds in record time!

grid paper

The Stampin’ Up! Grid Paper (#130148) is an often overlooked “tool” in the catalog. I love it and use it all the time! (One day I will do a post about all the ways I use it!)   Let’s get to how I used it to make this project quick & easy! I started with a piece of 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  Fold it in half to make a triangle then line it up along the grid paper.

Take the point at the bottom and fold it across to line up at 2 1/2″ on the opposite side. Fold and crease with your bone folder.  Do the same for the other end…cross over and line up at 2 1/2″.  The grid lines make it fast and easy to get the perfect size without having to measure and mark with a pencil.

Then you just fold down the flap at the top and you’re done.  No adhesive necessary.

How would you like to receive one of these in your mailbox?  Last week Chris R. sent me an adorable treat holder, the cutest little card, and some yummy chocolate tulips from her home town.

They have a Tulip Festival every year and she sent me these yummy chocolates. She was so sweet to share with me so I thought I would “pay it forward” and send my strawberry treat to one of you along with some 6 x 6 paper so you can make some of your own.  Let’s have some fun!  I shared that I will be starting a new alphabet series this week…What do you think is the “theme” of my new alphabet series?  Leave me a comment with your guess by noon on Wednesday (EST) and I will announce the winner (the first person who comments with the correct answer) on Thursday.

FYI…the series will debut on Thursday. Wednesday I will be participating in the PALS Blog Hop…you’ll want to check back for that… Lots of great ideas and inspiration from many talented team members!!!

This new alphabet series will be my fourth in the ABC series.  You can easily access any of the past series by clicking on the drop down menu under Categories. My first series, ABC’s of Stampin’, is great for new stampers as well as experienced stampers. It has lots of information on the basics of stamping as well as helpful tips for using a variety of stamping tools. It’s also a great refresher course. I am always learning new techniques and ideas from my fellow demonstrators and stampers and love to share them with you.

Next came the ABC’s with DSP.  You know how I love my Designer Series Paper! That series showcased different ways to cut your paper to make the most out of it with little waste. I love it when I can use every last scrap!  I am still so disappointed that the 12 x 12 DSP Paper Stacks are retiring.  I know it could get a bit pricey if you bought all 6 stacks but many demonstrators (myself included) offer Paper Shares to help you get a sample of them all without breaking the bank. I have only offered paper shares to my local customers in the past but am willing to consider shipping if that is something you are interested in when the new catalog debuts June 1st.  I am hoping Stampin’ Up! will consider bringing back the paper stacks for the different color families, perhaps in 6 x 6 stacks to make it more affordable. Luckily, we will have some great new paper packs and fun color combinations available to work with when the new catalog debuts.  FYI…the In Color Designer Series Paper Stacks are still available for both 2015 – 2017 and 2016 – 2018 colors.  Unfortunately, the Brights, Neutrals, Regals, and Subtles have already sold out. Also, the current Designer Series Paper packs will be retiring the end of May and are only available while supplies last.  Many are still available at some great sale prices!  (See below for the retiring list of DSP. ) The Fruit Stand DSP used on today’s project is on sale for $8.80 (20% Savings).

My most recent alphabet series, ABC’s with the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs, focused on the new products in these catalogs. Boy did we have some fun new and different dies, embossing folders, and gorgeous fonts in some of the stamp sets! Many of these items are retiring to make room for new ones so I hope you got what you wanted.  If not, there is a very good chance it’s on sale.  Many retiring items are discounted up to 50% off! Stamp sets are available until May 22nd and then they too will be available “while supplies last”. You can click on the links below to see what is retiring and what’s still available.  If you need any stamping supplies, I would love to be your demonstrator.

Have a wonderful day!
