Y is for Thinking of You

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ve been sharing a variety of cards for every occasion. I love to make Thinking of You cards because they are so versatile.  You can use them for birthdays, sympathy, get well, or no reason at all. Great card to let your friends and family know you are there for them! Here’s my quick & easy card for today!

Stampin' Up! Good Morning Magnolia and Pressed Petals Thinking of You card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The sentiment comes from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set.  I love the font on this! Here’s the details if you would like to make this card.

  • Mossy Meadow Cardstock – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4, scraps to punch leaves.
  • Pressed Petals DSP – 3 3/4 x 5 1/2
  • Crumb Cake Cardstock – 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 to cut Stitched Nested Labels Die
  • So Saffron Cardstock – scraps to punch 2 medium daisies

I stamped the sentiment with Mossy Meadow Ink and attached the daisies with Stampin Dimensionals.  I tucked in the punched leaves with Glue Dots.  I wanted to recreate the look of the DSP so I colored the Perennial Essence Floral Centers with the Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends. I adhered the Stitched Label to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I used the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack to make the bow and attached it with a Glue Dot. Quick & easy!

E is for Encouragement

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ll be sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! Today’s card is for times when we want to encourage a friend or family member.  Good Luck is the perfect sentiment to send someone for an upcoming surgery, exam, interview, new job, etc.  My friend, Margie, has been wanting a stamp set like this. I hope she likes this card!

Stampin' Up! Believe You Can Good Luck card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My Stampin’ Up! order came last week and I received the Believe You Can stamp set as a Host Reward. (Ask me how you can earn this stamp set for your collection!)

Stampin' Up! Believe You Can Stamp Set - Ask me how you can earn this stamp set! - Jeanie Stark juststampin.com StampinUp

I love how you can change the sentiment in the banner for different occasions. (I am also in love with the quote from Teddy Roosevelt.) This is a versatile stamp set and one I knew I had to have!

I colored the stamped image with my Stampin’ Blends and cut it out with the new Stitched Nested Labels Dies. These double stitched dies cut the image and the border piece.  Double whammy! I can use the leftover piece on another card!

Stampin Up Stitched Nested Labels Dies - to order visit www.juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used one die to cut the stamped image and a larger die to cut the Designer Series Paper.  I like the way it looks like another layer with the border from the card base  You can see how it’s stitched around the edges.

I thought the leaves on the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper would be a good background for the stamped image.  The designs in this paper pack are all soft shades of green. You can use this paper with many different color combinations.
