Color & Contour To Make You Smile

I’m thrilled to be stamping again! I’m still unpacking and making progress getting my craft room organized but I just had to take time out to play with some stamps and ink! I grabbed the 2020-2022 In Colors and the Color & Contour Stamp Set to create these cards.

Stampin' Up! In Your Words with Color & Contour In Color Card ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I love this sentiment from the exclusive host stamp set, In Your Words (available only during Sale-A-Bration). Every time I make a card for someone I hope it makes them smile! This stamp set has a variety of sentiments for different occasions. I love the mix of fonts too!

V is for Valentine

Welcome back to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! Throughout this series I have been sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC! Today I have a card & gift to share with you. I used the Everything Festive Stamp Set with the Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper to create this Valentine card and Hershey Nugget treat box.

This card could be used for anytime of the year to let someone know you love them.

The designer series paper and gold shimmer ribbon I used are part of the Christmastime is Here Suite which is only available this month (while supplies last).  Here’s the details if you would like to make this card:

Materials & Measurements

  • Cherry Cobbler:  5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 for card base
  • Gold Foil: 2 1/4 x 4 1/4, 3 1/4 x 4 1/4, 1/4 x 6 for envelope flap,  scraps to cut hearts from Stitched Be Mine Dies
  • Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper: 2 x 4 1/4, 3 x 4, 2 x 6
  • Whisper White: 2 x 3 1/2 to stamp sentiment in Cherry Cobbler Ink and cut with Stitched Nested Die, 4 x 5 1/4 for inside card
  • Gold Glimmer Ribbon: ~10 inches to wrap around DSP layer and tie a simple knot

You can use this card “formula” with other DSP and sentiments for any occasion. The ribbon layer and sentiment layer are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I love to give cards and little gifts that coordinate.  Here’s a simple Hershey Nugget Treat Box made from a 6 x 6 piece of Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Stampin' Up! Hershey Nugget Valentine treat box Idea made with Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper, Everything Festive Stamp Set, and Stitched Nested Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Gold Foil Hearts are cut from the Stitched Be Mine Dies and added with Glue Dots. I followed Julie DiMatteo’s Video Tutorial for the Hinged-Lid Box.

Materials & Measurements

  • Christmastime is Here Specialty DSP – 6″ x 6″
    • First cut off a 2″ x 6″ piece and cut that into 4 – 1″ x 3″ pieces for the Hershey’s Nugget wraps
    • Then, with the remaining 4″ x 6″ piece, cut of 1/8″ from the 6″ side so you have a 4″ x 5-7/8″ piece
    • Score all 4 sides of the 4″ x 5-7/8″ piece at 5/8″
    • Then, along the 5-7/8″, score at 2-5/8″ and 3-1/4″

Fold and burnish along the score lines. Cut and notch the score lines on the long sides as shown below.

Add adhesive to the notched tabs, fold and tuck to assemble the box. Use the 1/2″ Circle Punch to cut a notch on the top of the box.

Wrap the Hershey Nuggets with 1 x 3 DSP strips. (*I used Glue Dots on each end of the DSP.) Here’s what the box looks like when you open it.

You can make this simple treat box for any occasion! What a “sweet” little treat to make for those you love!

I am in Hartford, Connecticut today for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Event.  I have been looking forward to attending this event with my stamping friends and getting to see and play with new products that will be coming out in the 2020 Occasions Catalog in January.  I will be sharing sneak peeks of the new products and ideas when I get back!

Have a great day!

D is for Deck the Halls with Designer Series Paper

Welcome to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! Throughout this series I will be sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC!  Today I am sharing a quick & easy card design that showcases both sides of the Designer Series Paper (aka DSP). The Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper is one of my favorites in the holiday catalog. One of the many things I love about Stampin’ Up! is their color coordination! It makes it quick & easy to choose the right colors for any project! Every pack of DSP has the coordinating colors on the package as well as in the catalog. (No thinking necessary! LOL) Here’s a look at the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper and the coordinating cardstock (Mossy Meadow, Very Vanilla, Night of Navy, Pretty Peacock, and Copper Foil). Stampin' Up! Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper - For inspiration and ordering information visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s my first two Christmas cards for this year.

  • Layer the Brightly Gleaming DSP on top of the card base so it is flush with the right side. Add adhesive as shown on the edge of the card base and DSP. (I used Tear & Tape; however, you can use Snail adhesive if you prefer.) Close card to adhere.
  •  Wrap ribbon around the cardstock and tie a simple knot.
  • Stamp the sentiment (with VersaMark) from Christmtas Gleaming and heat emboss with Copper Embossing Powder.  Cut with Layering Circles Dies or Circle Punch.
  • Punch out a Pretty Label in Copper Foil and adhere to the card. Attach the circle sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Stamp the holly in Memento Black Ink onto Very Vanilla Cardstock and color in with Stampin’ Blends (Old Olive and Real Red). Fussy cut it out and attach to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
