Framed Sunflowers Card and Tealight Candle Box Gift Idea

I can’t stop creating with the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle! It is such a versatile set! It’s on my list of Favorite Things from the annual catalog and today’s projects are just another reason why! I love making cards to coordinate with gifts!

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers and Well Written gift set idea for a friend - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

It’s easy to see the inspiration for my card and box came from the adorable tea light candles I purchased from Amazon. I love that 4 candles fit perfectly in the Mini Pizza Boxes for a cute little gift to “brighten” someone’s day!

The sentiment from the Paper Pumpkin Sunshine kit was perfect to go with the candles! I stamped the small sunflowers in Bumblebee Ink and colored them with So Saffron and Cinnamon Cider Blends. I used the Layering Squares Dies to cut out the sentiment and scalloped layer. It makes a nice statement when you open the box. And you don’t even have to untie the gorgeous gingham ribbon to get inside! I just wrapped that around the box, tied a bow in front, and secured with a Mini Glue Dot.

I am really missing getting together with my friends!!! The Well Written Dies (and coordinating Well Said Stamp Set) have sentiments for so many occasions. This one is simply stated!

The key to making this card easy was using the new Adhesive Sheets (found on page 172 in the annual catalog). Trust me…you need to add these to your next order!!! I easily adhered my cardstock to the adhesive sheet, ran the sunflower die and the sentiments through the die cut machine, removed the adhesive backing and adhered to the card! So simple!!! I added an embossed layer with the Scripty 3D embossing folder.  I love how this simple step adds a little texture! I used the Stitched Rectangles to make my frame and cut strips of the new Foam Adhesive Sheets to adhere the frame to the card.

I wanted to carry the framed sunflower look from the card to my gift box.  I used the Layering Squares Dies and the same technique with the Adhesive Sheets for the sunflower and word die.

Spotlighting Forever Greenery

Stampin' Up! Spotlighting technique thank you card idea with Forever Greenery and Stitched Rectangle Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Today’s card showcases the “Spotlighting” technique. It is similar to Double Time Stamping except it is done using designer series paper instead of stamping on cardstock. Spotlighting is a quick & easy technique achieved with layering dies. I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies but you can use any Layering Dies to achieve this look. I would like to give a shout out and special thanks to Linda Heller for this technique reminder! I used one of my favorite suites in the new annual catalog, Forever Greenery.

Stampin' Up! Forever Greenery Suite - visit juststampin.com for inspiration and ordering - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Forever Greenery Suite Collection includes
* Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set (10% off)
* Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper
* Forever Gold Laser-cut Specialty Paper
* Gold Hoops Embellishments
* Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack
* Greenery Embossing Folders
* Forever Flourishing Dies (10% off)

Product colors: Garden Green, Just Jade, Pear Pizzazz, Pretty Peacock, Shaded Spruce, Soft Sea Foam, Whisper White

One of my favorite things when creating is to use every scrap of DSP. This is a personal challenge of mine and I love it when there is no waste! This card meets the challenge!

I made this card for my friend and neighbor! I usually fill the urns in front of our house with Kimberly Ferns. (*They don’t need as much water as Boston Ferns and stay healthy and full all summer long!) My friend noticed my empty pots this year and picked up some ferns for me and delivered them to my doorstep! She totally made my day! How perfect is this DSP as a thank you card for her?!

It’s these simple acts of kindness that make such a difference in our lives especially during these difficult times. I would love to hear about acts of kindness in your life….either to or from others! Leave a comment below and share an act of kindness that you did or received.

I hope you’ll give this technique a try!

Have a great day! Stay safe! Stay well!

Stitched Stars Congratulations

I made this card for one of my team members who recently promoted.

Stampin' Up! Stitched Stars Dies Congratulations card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Stitched Star Dies and Star Designer Elements I used on this card carried over from the holiday catalog. Don’t forget to check out the other carryover items in my online store (under Holiday Favorites)! I love these dies and there’s even a new stamp set (Morning Star) in the Mini Catalog that coordinates (p.21). The stars are just gorgeous on their own! Stampin' Up! Stitched Stars Dies Congratulations card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used a piece of vellum (cut with the Stitched Rectangle Dies) to highlight the beautiful dies and soften the stars on the DSP. I tucked a little gift in a Copper Dotted Treat Bag and wanted to showcase the card on the front so I adhered a Clear Medium Envelope to the bag and slipped the card inside. Card & gift packaging all in one!
