Welcome to Christmas in July! Ho! Ho! Ho! Yesterday I shared my first Christmas card of the year. If you missed that post you can view it HERE. Christmas is 5 months from today! I have been as busy as Santa’s elves getting ready for the new Holiday Catalog (which debuts Aug. 4th)! There’s so much on my wish list! I have reached the point where I need to part with some of my retired items to make room for new product! I have been cleaning and reorganizing and I have many retired stamp sets, dies, embossing folders, Designer Series Papers, ribbon, embellishments, etc. I want my retired goodies to go to a new home. I have a limited number of Christmas in July Surprises available to the first to respond! Each package is filled with a variety of retired goodies at a fraction of the cost.

Here’s what’s included in each gift package:
(*Feel free to sing to the tune of the 12 Days of Christmas.)

  • 5 cardstock cards (ready for you to create!)
  • 4 Designer Paper Shares (48 sheets of 6 x 6 retired DSP)
  • 3 Accents & Embellishments (will include an EF, retired ribbon and more!)
  • 2 Stamp Sets and
  • 1 Punch or Die Set

*Stamp sets, punches, dies, etc. are from my personal collection. They are slightly used, in good condition. Trust me, it’s a great deal!!

You can get a Christmas in July Mystery Surprise for just $25 (plus shipping). Why not treat yourself (or a friend) to a gift surprise this month! (I’ll be happy to play “Santa” and include a card on your behalf if you want me to ship to a friend.) Here’s how to order your mystery surprise:

Email me (j.stark@myactv.net) with “Christmas in July” in the subject line. *Make sure you include your mailing address! Then send payment through PayPal.

Flowers For Every Season Christmas Card

Today I’m showcasing my first Christmas card of the season using one of my favorite Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalog, Flowers For Every Season.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Gleaming and Flowers For Every Season Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I really like this color combination of Just Jade, Poppy Parade, and Flirty Flamingo. What do you think, Christmas colors or not?

Stampin' Up! Color Combo - for inspiration and more visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

There’s a couple of sneak peeks on my card today. The sentiment is from a returning favorite from last year’s Holiday Catalog, Christmas Gleaming. It was definitely one of my favorite stamps and I’m so glad it’s back! It will be available (starting Aug. 4th) along with the coordinating Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack.

I love ribbon and add it to most projects. The ribbon on my card is from All The Trimmings Ribbon Combo Pack and is gold-trimmed for some added sparkle.

I love coordinating envelopes with my cards! I got this envelope idea from my super creative and talented friend, Rosanne Mulhern (heartfeltstamping.com). She decorated her envelope like this using coordinating DSP strips and I couldn’t wait to try it! This seemed like the perfect card to mirror the layers on my envelope.

Here’s what I used on today’s card:

Stamp Sets: Gleaming Christmas  Papers: Flowers For Every Season DSP, Brights 6 x 6 DSP, Thick Whisper White, Just Jade Whisper White  Inks: Poppy Parade  Accessories:  Tailored Tag Punch, Layering Circles Dies, 1/8″Poppy Parade Gold Trimmed Ribbon, Stampin’ Seal, Stampin’ Dimensionals

Welcome Baby with Whale Of A Time

Stampin' Up! Whale of a Time and Well Written Dies fun fold baby card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Whale of A Time Suite was the perfect choice for this fun fold baby card and I can’t wait to show you why!  I love the ocean life images and all-occasion designs in the Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper. You can use the 6 x 6 sheets to create a scenic background for your card or cut out larger images to use as accents (which I did for the whales). Check out the different designs.

Stampin' Up! Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper - for inspiration and ordering infomration visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love anything from the ocean (and beach)! I was thrilled I could add some 3D aquatic life using the Smooth Sailing Dies. Stampin’ Up! is great with product coordination!

Word Dies are my favorite and the Well Written Dies work for so many occasions!

Stampin' Up! Well Written Dies are perfect so so many occasions! For inspiration and ordering information visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the new foam adhesive sheets with the word dies. These Double-sided adhesive foam sheets can be cut with dies which makes it so easy to cut and adhere!!

I made this card is for my friend Susan who just welcomed her first grandbaby!  The baby’s nursery is nautical with lots of whales and ocean animals. Whenever Susan and I were out shopping she was always picking up something to go with the nursery theme for the baby…clothes, books, stuffed animals, etc. I know it won’t be long before baby Wes is out on the boat with his Gigi and Pap! Look at these adorable pictures and you will see why I chose the Whale of a Time! I love to coordinate cards and gifts with a theme!

I am thrilled for my friend Susan (and also a little jealous)! I love babies and can’t wait to be a grandparent! I shared what I though was a great “5 year plan” for my son back in 2015. I hoped he would find a nice girl, get married, and have a baby when I retired. LOL I followed my part of the plan and retired last year!

I found the perfect sentiments for my card from the Many Mates and Timeless Tulips Stamp Sets. There’s still plenty of room to add a personal note!

Stampin' Up! Many Mates and Timeless Tulips baby card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love to decorate my envelopes to coordinate.  I used the Seabed Embossing Folder to emboss the envelope flap then sponged it with colors from the DSP.  I really loved how it turned out!

This card is really easy to make and folds flat to fit in the envelope. When you open it up it pops out and can stand on your shelf. It’s a really cool fun fold.  Click HERE to view more fun fold cards featuring this pop up design as well as my photo tutorial with measurements and directions to make it!
