I love homemade cards and gifts! My daughter has been home for spring break this week and she surprised me with a gift from the heart that took me on a trip down Memory Lane! We went out for my birthday dinner last night and she couldn’t wait to give me these.

Birthday gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

She reached out to my friends and family and asked them to email her a favorite happy or funny memory they have with me. It was pure joy and laughter as I read these messages and stories from friends and family.  My heart is so full!  I feel so blessed!

I hope this inspires you to make someone smile today. Reach out to someone you may not have seen in awhile, tell someone what you love about them, send someone a card today!

Hoppy Birthday

Stampin Up So Hoppy Together birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I’m still making birthday cards!  March is my busiest month for birthdays!  I’m not a fan of real frogs (brings back memories of summers camping on Cape Cod when the boys would throw frogs in our inflatable boat); however, this little guy is stinkin’ adorable! I colored “Hoppy” with Stampin’ Blends and cut him out with the coordinating dies. (*The dies sold out fast but you can fussy cut him if you don’t have the dies). I popped him up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the “reed” (from the Home to Roost Stamp Set) on Whisper White cardstock then decided I wanted to add some color.  I squeezed some Pool Party ink in the lid of the pad and added several drops of water from my Aqua Painter. Then I did a quick wash on the card. I like the subtle color. Normally I would have used Shimmery White cardstock if I was going to watercolor but this worked fine.  It did curl a little but I just used extra adhesive on the back so it would lay flat.

The stamped sentiment comes from the So Hoppy Together Stamp Set and the new More Than Words Stamp Set. Both of these stamp sets are only available until March 31st (while supplies last). You can see all the products I used in the list below.  Simply click on any of the images and you’ll be directed to my online store.  Here’s the details and measurements.

  • Card Base is Thick Whisper White that measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.
  • Layer 1 is 3 3/4 x 5 Powder Pink.
  • Layer 2 (with stamped and die cut images) measures 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.
  • Stamp grass with Lemon Lime Twist ink.
  • Watercolor wash the background with Pool Party ink using Aqua Painter.
  • Stamp sentiment and frog in Memento Black ink. Cut Hoppy from scrap piece and adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Color Frog with Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Combo.
  • Cut frog, flowers, and lily pad using Hop Around Framelits Dies (or fussy cut).
  • Adhere die cut pieces. Pop Frog up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Decorate the envelope flap with a piece of Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper.

Time to Sale-A-Brate Friendship with the Pals Blog Hop

Blog Hop Badge February 2019

Welcome to the Pals’ February blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here because it’s “Time to Sale-A-Brate”! Our Design Team created projects using Sale-A-Bration items to inspire you. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin Up friend card and gift idea using Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and Part of My Story Stamp Set - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Today I’m “Sale-A-Brating” friendship! One of the best things about being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is all the new friendships I have made over the past several years while sharing my joy of stamping!

My card and gift uses three of my favorite items from the Sale-A-Bration catalog…the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, the gorgeous Organdy Ribbon (from the combo pack), and an awesome sentiment stamp set, Part of My Story.  Here’s a peek at each of these items.   (Did I mention you can get all of these for FREE?!!)

Part of My Story Stamp Set

I love to create cards and gifts to match.  This gift was quick & easy to put together for a special friend. Gather some rocks, tree branches, and some store bought moss and put it all in a jar. (The rocks hold the branches in place.)  I fussy cut the large butterflies from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and attached them to the branches with glue dots.  This gift will last much longer than a bouquet of flowers! Choose the butterflies that match your home decor or stamp your own using the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set from the Occasions catalog!

For the coordinating card I used another pattern from the Botancial Butterfly DSP for my background.  I used the Seasonal Layers Thinlits to cut the branch and then fussy cut another large butterfly from the DSP.  I punched the small butterfly from another pattern of the DSP using the Butterfly Duet Punch.  (I love how you can use the butterfly punch with the coordinating Butterfly Gala Stamp Set or the Designer Series Paper.  More bang for your buck!!)

I popped up the butterfly layer, the larger butterfly, and the sentiment layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment from Part of My Story can be used for many occasions! (Check back tomorrow to see how I used it for my Valentine’s Day cards! Make sure you subscribe to my blog to get an email each time I post.)

The finishing touch was adding the beautiful bow made with the organdy ribbon!  The best part about this project is I got the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack, and Part of My Story Stamp Set for FREE! You can too with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration (now through March 31st).

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Happy New Year! I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday season. I got back last night from visiting my son, family, and friends in Massachusetts. We had a wonderful time but it’s always so hard to say good-bye!  My daughter flew back to Georgia this afternoon and I went back to school.  (At least my sweet little ones always bring a smile to my face!)

More Birthday Wishes

img_1695

I absolutely LOVED reading the comments yesterday with stories of your birthday memories. Thank you so much for sharing!!!  It just reaffirms my feelings on “gifts”…it’s not what you get, it’s who you spend your time with! My husband and I like to give our children a “birthday experience” each year.  Fads come and go but memories last a lifetime! And when you give an experience, everyone enjoys the gift! Many family trips have been someone’s “gift”.

Speaking of gifts…Sharing handmade kindness is a gift from the heart! When someone takes the time to write a note inside a card and/or make a card, it is a “gift” in and of itself! I treasure the handwritten notes and cards from my kids over the years as well as those I’ve received from friends and family. I bet you do too! My friend Laura always sends me a beautiful letter in her card every year. We used to teach together in Virginia many years ago and she always shares a memory from our “adventures in teaching” that makes me smile.

Yesterday I shared some of the beautiful birthday cards I received.  If you missed that post you can see it HERE.  Today I have a few more cards (and a “special delivery”) to share with you from some of my very talented stamping friends…

Stampin’ Up! Statement of the Heart: 
“To love what we do and share what we love, as we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments…in this we make a difference.”

U is for YOU!

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Unfortunately I couldn’t find anything in the catalog that begins with u to showcase today! So I am taking this opportunity to thank yoU! Thank you for following my blog, commenting when you can, and purchasing products from my online store. I appreciate YOU and enjoy the feedback and sharing of ideas. Together we make a difference!

Stampin’ Up! Statement of the Heart: 

“To love what we do and share what we love, as we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments…in this we make a difference.”

Last week I posted some questions and many of you responded and let me know how much fun you had going on a scavenger hunt through the catalogs. I promised to post the answers and give away some blog candy to one lucky winner.  Here’s the questions and answers:

  1. What is “a little cheesy” in the Occasions catalog?         DAD JOKES
     2.  Finish this sentiment from a stamp set featured in the Occasions catalog: “Life is beautiful ___ __ __”  BECAUSE OF YOU
     3.  What new product allows you to create unique backgrounds with coloring techniques?   BRUSHO
       4.  I hope you didn’t miss this quick tip in the catalog…What should you do when stamping on vellum to prevent smearing? HEAT SET INK WITH HEAT TOOL
     5.  What color watercolor pencils are exclusive to the Lots of Happy kit (and are not available in our set of watercolor pencils)?  FLIRTY FLAMINGO AND LEMON LIME TWIST
     6.  Which stamp set answers this question: What happens if someone forgets your birthday?  BIRTHDAY WIT
     7.  What new item can you use to “frame your art”?  MINI EMBROIDERY HOOPS
     8.  What new item can you use to make an interactive card?  SLIDING DOOR FRAMELITS DIES 
     9.  Here’s another quick tip answered in the catalog…How should you store Stampin’ Blends (and other Stampin’ Up! markers)?  HORIZONTALLY
     10.  What products can you get for FREE with a $100 purchase?   HAPPY WISHES, CELEBRATE YOU THINLITS DIE, BLOSSOMING BASKET BUNDLE, SWEET CAKE FRAMELITS DIES, PETALS AND MORE THINLITS DIES

 

Question #1 seemed to stump many; however, the winner got them all correct! The winner is Nancy Huhn!   Congratulations Nancy! Email me (j.stark@myactv.net) your address and I will send you the Shimmer Ribbon Pack from Sale-A-Bration!

Yesterday I shared some Tutti-Frutti pens.  I loved reading the comments and what you like to do with your friends and family. The random winner to receive one of the Tutti-Frutti pens is Karen H.   Here’s what she had to say:

Auuugh! Your post makes me so jealous that I won’t be joining all of you Stampin’ sisters in April! You are going to have so much fun! I adore these little pen holders – what a great idea. Just like the comment above me, I too have a long-time friend coming to visit the end of May. We’ll be up late with a glass of wine and our old high school photo albums, laughing and catching up after 40+ years!

Congratulations Karen! I will be sending one of the Tutti-Frutti pens your way.

Many thanks to all who commented and stop by to visit each day. I am thankful to have you in my stamping circle!

Have a wonderful day!

R is for Ribbon

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. I love Ribbon and I like to add it to my cards and projects! I love the way Stampin’ Up! color coordinates everything! I’m a “everything has to match” type of person (with clothes as well as cards) and I love the special touch ribbon adds to a project. I shared previously my love for the organza ribbon.  You can view that post HERE. Today I am going to share some ribbon projects using the other new ribbons found in the Occasions catalog and share a cool tip for the Shimmer Ribbon found in the Sale-A-Bration catalog.

In addition to the new Whisper White 1/4″ Organza ribbon which I shared previously, there are 3 more new ribbons in the Occasions catalog: Berry Burst 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon, Lemon Lime Twist 3/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon, and Night of Navy 3/8″ Corduroy Ribbon.

Here are some of the projects I’ve shared using these ribbons.  You can click on the image to see the original post.

Stampin Up Envelope Punch Board and Fruit Basket Bundle birthday card idea with a special treat - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Stampin Up Thank you card ideas using Narrow Note Card and Tutti-frutti Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Stampin Up True Gentleman card idea using Celebrate You Thinlits Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s a few more ideas to add a touch of ribbon from the Stampin’ Up! Design Team.

In addition to the beautiful new ribbons  in the Occasions catalog, you can earn the gorgeous shimmery ribbon from the Shimmer Ribbon Pack in the Sale-A-Bration brochure.  It’s FREE with a $50 purchase!  The Shimmer Ribbon Pack has 3 different rolls of ribbon: 1/4″ Basic Gray, 1/8″ Bermuda Bay, and 3/8″ Calypso Coral.

Something so cool that you can do with the Shimmer Ribbon is curl it! I found this tip in the Sale-A-Bration brochure on page 9:  To curl the shimmer ribbon, wrap it around a wood dowel and wet it; dry it with a Heat Tool, let it cool, and voila – curl!

Q is for Questions and Quick Tips

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. The catalog and brochures offer ideas, quick tips, and techniques! Today I decided to have a little fun and send you on a scavenger hunt through the catalog and brochures to find answers to some questions. (*I will post a link to the Sale-A-Bration brochures below. You can access the catalog from the menu bar on my blog.  If you are reading this in your email, click on the title to go to my blog.)

I always loved scavenger hunts and remember fun times racing around the neighborhood with brown paper bags seeing who could be first to find the items on the list. Well, you don’t need to run around! You can grab a cup of coffee (or glass of wine) and enjoy browsing the catalog.  Look for answers to the questions below, copy and paste the questions with your answers, and email them to me (j.stark@myactv.net).  I will pick a random winner to receive a Sale-A-Bration surprise!

Let’s see how well you do with these 10 questions…

  1.  What is “a little cheesy” in the Occasions catalog?
  2. Finish this sentiment from a stamp set featured in the Occasions catalog: “Life is beautiful ___ __ __”
  3. What new product allows you to create unique backgrounds with coloring techniques?
  4. I hope you didn’t miss this quick tip in the catalog…What should you do when stamping on vellum to prevent smearing?
  5. What color watercolor pencils are exclusive to the Lots of Happy kit (and are not available in our set of watercolor pencils)?
  6. Which stamp set answers this question: What happens if someone forgets your birthday?
  7. What new item can you use to “frame your art”?
  8. What new item can you use to make an interactive card?
  9. Here’s another quick tip answered in the catalog…How should you store Stampin’ Blends (and other Stampin’ Up! markers)?
  10. What products can you get for FREE with a $100 purchase?

Have fun! You have until Sunday, March 18th (midnight) to complete the Scavenger Hunt.  Email me with “Scavenger Hunt” in the subject.  Answers and winner will be announced on Monday, 19th.

**Last chance to get my “Just Stampin’ Card kit and 3D Project Buffet” to go this month. You will get 3 card kits and a 3D project kit. For more details and ordering information click HERE.

Have a wonderful day!
