Get This Spirited Snowman Before He Melts Away!

Stampin’ Up! released their retiring products and year end close out sale today and I was sorry to see the Spirited Snowman stamp set on the list.  This is one of my favorite stamp sets in the Holiday Catalog!  This was the swap card I made for my friends attending the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Convention last month.

I love this happy little guy and he was so much fun to color with my Stampin’ Blends.  I enjoy making this fun fold card. (You can view my photo tutorial for how to make it HERE.) Here’s a picture of it from the side.

I like the way this fun fold card stands up.  It can also fold flat to mail in a regular envelope.  I dressed is up a little with some snowflakes cut from the Blizzard Thinlits Die (also retiring) and the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.  Here’s my attempt at an infinity shot of these guys all lined up.

Cut It Out Fun Fold for the Pals Blog Hop

Blog Hop August

Welcome to the Pals August, 2018 Blog Hop. We love to cut it out so this month our creations feature our favorite “cuts” using punches, Framelits and Thinlits from the current Stampin’ Up! catalog.

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.

I have a fun fold to share with you today inspired by Dawn Griffith!  I love fun folds and this one is quite simple and can be used for a variety of occasions!

Stampin Up Detailed With Love Fun Fold friend card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Do you recognize the stamped floral image? It’s from the Make A Difference Stamp Set and it coordinates perfectly with the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper! I stamped it in Memento ink and colored it to match using the Stampin’ Blends.

It takes just a few quick cuts and this fun fold card is ready to assemble! Here’s the measurements:

Card Base (Crumb Cake): 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
Layer 1 (Rich Razzleberry): 3 3/4 x 5 1/2
DSP Layer: 3 1/4 x 6 Score at 5 9/16
Whisper White Layer (inside piece): 3 1/4 x 5 1/2

Circle Punches:
2 1/4″ : Glimmer Paper
2″ : Punch from Layer 1 cardstock
1 3/4″ : Whisper White (for stamped layer)

Layering Circles Framelits:
Cut from Layer 1 cardstock with 2 3/8 straight & 2 3/4 Scallop
Cut from DSP with 2 3/8 straight

Directions:
Fold the DSP layer along the score line and adhere to the back of the Rich Razzleberry layer before adhering the Rich Razzleberry layer to the card base. Adhere the Whisper White layer to the Rich Razzleberry so it is hidden under the DSP layer. Adhere the scallop circle piece to frame the circle cut from the DSP. Wrap ~12″ ribbon around the DSP layer and tie in a simple knot. Adhere the stamped layer to the cardstock and Glimmer layers and attach inside the opening using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Love What You Do

I love my stamping friends! We call ourselves the “Sisterhood of the Traveling Stamps”. Recently we grabbed our “Stamping To Go Bags” and took a road trip to meet up in Delaware to stamp, shop, grab a bite to eat, and chat.  We met for brunch at a great little restaurant (You’re going to laugh at the name), “Lewinski’s on Clinton”.  After getting all the inside scoop about the restaurant, we attended a class by the owner and designer of Neat & Tangled, Danielle Walls. She is so sweet and talented! We had so much fun doing what we love to do…stamping together and learning some new techniques. Here’s a photo we took with Danielle.

img_0835

One of the cards we made was a “splattered” background with a floral we fussy cut and layered with vellum.  I really liked the way it turned out and couldn’t wait to try this technique at home. I chose to use the beautiful floral from the Blended Seasons stamp set. Here’s my card.

Stampin Up Blended Seasons and Love What You Do floral card idea colored with Stampin Blends - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The splattered background is fun! Dilute some white acrylic paint with a little water and use a paintbrush to tap the paint on the cardstock. *Make sure to protect your work area as I splattered paint everywhere. LOL

Make a splattered background with acrylic paint - Jeanie Stark Stampin Up

I used the Heat Tool to speed up the drying process and adhered it to my card base with dimensionals.  I stamped the flower image from Blended Seasons with Memento ink and colored with my Stampin’ Blends.  I love the new colors! I used Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green. (Pssst…there’s 6 more blend colors coming out in the Holiday catalog! WooHoo!) I fussy cut two of the flowers and cut a quick border out of vellum then another border a little wider.  I adhered the flower to the first layer of vellum with dimensionals then adhered the second layer with Glue Dots and adhered it to the card.

Stampin Up Blended Seasons and Love What You Do floral card idea colored with Stampin Blends - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I stamped the sentiment from the Love What You Do Stamp Set and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  All that was left was some envelope love and the 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Stacks are perfect for lining the flap.  I love that these are available in all the color families!!! I used Lemon Lime Twist to match my background.

Blended Seasons is a special limited-edition stamp set and framelits that are a MUST HAVE (in my opinion).  It’s great for year round versatility! (I showcased some Christmas cards made with this bundle last week.)Stampin Up Blended Seasons Bundle - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Christmas in July with Blended Seasons

Stampin Up Blended Seasons Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love Christmas! When I saw the new limited-time bundle, Blended Seasons, I couldn’t wait to create my first Christmas cards of the year. I just love the Stitched Seasons Framelits! The Blended Seasons bundle is a fantastic collection of stamps and dies you can use year round. It will only be available August 1-31 while supplies last! (Click HERE if you missed yesterday’s post with all the details.)

Stampin Up Blended Seasons Bundle - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Blended Seasons stamp set offers many possibilities for coloring and I love to color! I used my Stampin’ Blends but you could easily use watercolor pencils or Aqua Painter. I even colored my envelope to match! *Make sure you put a piece of scrap paper inside the envelope when coloring with Blends in case it bleeds through.

Stampin Up Blended Seasons Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s the measurements:

Card Base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 (Whisper White)

Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 4

Layer 2:  4 3/4 x 3 1/2

Layer 3 (DSP): 4 1/2 x 3 1/4

I cut out the smallest stitched framelit on whisper white then stamped the sentiment in Real Red and the holly with Memento Black Ink.  I used Light Cherry Cobbler for the berries and the Old Olive Combo Blends for the holly. I cut the middle-sized stitched framelit and wrapped 3/8″ Real Red Cotton Ribbon around it before adhering the stamped image.  The Stitched Framelit layer is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

You could use this card design for any occasion. Try it with different DSP and sentiments! Here’s another look at each card.Stampin Up Blended Seasons Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUpStampin Up Blended Seasons Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Just Add Color Guest Stamper

My daughter, Ariane, is on the board of her Hall Council at Georgia Tech. When she was home for spring break she wanted to make some thank you cards for the people who helped out throughout the year. Just Add Color Designer Series Paper was the perfect choice for these “housing” thank you cards.

Ariane used Stampin’ Blends to color the different houses and then fussy cut each one out.  She loved using the new Stamparatus which made adding the sentiment a breeze!  Here’s a few photos.

The Whisper White note cards & envelopes made putting this project together a breeze.  The cards are prescored and ready to go. Ariane used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the houses to her cards.  Here’s a look at all 13 of her colorful cards!

Crafting Forever Flip Fold Card

Crafting Forever is one of my favorite stamp sets in the annual catalog and I am thrilled it will carry over to the new catalog.  I have used it to make cards, magnets, bookmarks, and many gifts.  I also love to stamp my envelopes with some of the different stamps and sentiments from this set. It was the perfect choice for my swap cards for OnStage.

Stampin Up Crafting Forever fun fold friend card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

If you follow my blog you know I love fun fold cards. I used the “artsy” paper from Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper, my Stampin’ Blends, and several different stamps from the set for my flip fold card. Here’s some photos showing how it opens as well as how the flap adheres on the back.

I had so much fun stamping and coloring these cards.  I chose my colors for the card base from the colors in the designer series paper: crushed curry, emerald envy, and flirty flamingo.

Stampin Up Crafting Forever fun fold friend card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Stampin Up Crafting Forever fun fold friend card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Stampin Up Crafting Forever fun fold friend card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These are pretty simple to make.  When I am mass producing I like to do everything in steps.  I cut all my cardstock, then I stamped, punched, and colored.  Final step was fussy cutting the little stamp blocks and assembling. Here’s the measurements I got from Rachel Tessman:

Card Base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored in half at 4 1/4, scrap to punch 2 1/4″ circle

Basic Black: 4 1/4 x 3 to layer DSP,  1 1/2 x 7 scored and folded at 4 1/4 for the flap

DSP: 4 x 2 3/4

Whisper White: 4 x 5 1/4 for inside , scraps to stamp and punch two 2″ circles and block

I stamped the sentiments and images in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink so I could color the images with my Stampin’ Blends. To assemble, adhere the DSP to the basic black layer and adhere to card base. Wrap the flap around the card and make sure it is centered on the front before adhering the flap on the back of the card.  Layer the stamped image on the circle and adhere to the front flap.  Open the card and adhere the sentiment over the circle on the inside. To keep the card closed, adhere the block image with a Stampin’ Dimensional so the flap can tuck in slightly.

Moon Baby for Tic Tac Toe #42

Stampin Up Moon Baby gift card holder baby card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

It’s time for another Tic Tac Toe Challenge! How would YOU like to be a guest designer? Simply play along and someone will be chosen each week to be a future guest designer.  Here’s this week’s challenge board…

img_1511-1

My niece is pregnant with her first child so I know I will be needing a card for her baby shower.  I always love to give books as gifts and Kohl’s sells books and stuffed animals on behalf of their Kohl’s Cares program.  I love to purchase these as 100% of the net profit from the sale is donated to charitable organizations including children’s hospital initiatives that support healthy development, safety, wellness and chronic disease management. When I see my favorites I buy several to have on hand to give as gifts as they are so reasonably priced at just $5 each. Today’s card holds a gift card and goes with one of my children’s favorite bedtime stories, Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown.

Stampin Up Moon Baby gift card holder baby card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the Moon Baby stamp set to create my card for this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  I went down the first column with animal, baby, layers. ( It also works on the diagonal with stripes, punch, layers as I used the banner punch on the ends of my sentiment layer.) This card measures 4 1/4 x 9 1/2 and is scored at 1 1/2 and 4. It has a pocket to hold a gift card inside.

Stampin Up Moon Baby gift card holder baby card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love making my cards and gifts coordinate!  That’s the beauty of a handmade card.

Stampin Up Moon Baby gift card holder baby card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

It’s hard to tell in the photo but I embossed the background layer with stars to go with the cover of the book.  I colored the animals with Stampin’ Blends and popped the banner with Dimensionals.  If you need a gift idea for a new mom to be, I highly recommend this book!  Do you have a favorite book you like to read your children or grandchildren? I would love for you to leave a comment below and share your story.

You can purchase the products used to make today’s card from my online store.  Click HERE to shop or click on the images below.

Have a Wonderful Day! I am heading to Hartford, Connecticut today to join my stamping friends for a long weekend.  Saturday is the Stampin’ Up! convention and I can’t wait to see the new products that will be coming out in June.  I won’t be able to share any secrets until Monday but I can share our swap cards and the fun projects we will be doing ahead of time!  Be sure to check back!

Stampin Up Birthday Wishes For You Stamp Set - For inspiration and ordering visit www.juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I knew immediately this would become a well used stamp set in my craft room.  I make a lot of birthday cards and love how this stamp set makes it quick & easy to create.  I also love that I can color it with my Stampin’ Blends and make it color coordinate with whatever Designer Series Paper I use.  This set is priced so reasonable at just $12 (clear mount). I stamped it using my Stamparatus and made multiples ready to color and assemble as needed.

If you didn’t get in on the preorder for the Stamparatus, you will be able to order it in June when the new Annual Catalog debuts.  Trust me, you are going to want this and you’ll thank me that I told you to put it on the top of your wish list!! I love that if you don’t get a perfectly clear image the first time you can just reink and stamp again right on top because it gives perfect alignment each and every time! It is also great for 2, 3, or 4- step stamping and saves time and money with fewer mistakes.

Today is my sister’s birthday! Our birthdays are just 2 days apart and we love to celebrate together when we can.  (Living over 400 miles apart doesn’t make that an easy task!) We talk on the phone every day! She loves the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper so I knew that I wanted to use it for her birthday card. We both love the silver foil and handpainted designs! I cut a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece to cover the front of my Whisper White card base.  The sentiment is stamped on a piece of 2 1/2 x  4 1/4 Whisper White and layered on a piece of 2 7/8 x 4 1/4 Old Olive.  I wrapped some Silver Baker’s Twine around the layered piece, tied a bow, and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  A few rhinestones added to the center of the flowers and some matching DSP on the envelope and my card was complete.

Stampin Up! announced that due to low inventory Stampin’ Blends will be made unorderable beginning Friday, March 23, noon (MT).  If you started your collection and want to add colors you need to do it today. The Blends will be available again but not until the end of May/beginning of June.  I love coloring with my Blends!  It is so much fun and easy to get the look and feel of an artist!
