Happiness Blooms for the Pals Blog Hop

Pals BLog Hop Badge April 2019

Welcome to the Pals’ April  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we love to put our ”Families First”! Our Design Team created beautiful projects to inspire you. 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 full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Mother’s Day is right around the corner.  When my daughter was little she loved playing with her baby dolls! On Mother’s Day one year she let us know she was a mother too because she took care of her babies. That memory always brings a smile to my face!  I made two cards to share with you today.  One for my mom and one for my daughter. Both use the same layout and can be used for Mother’s Day or any occasion by simply changing the sentiment.

Stampin Up Happiness Blooms Mother's Day card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper on both of these cards.  This paper is so bright and cheery it just makes me smile! There are many more color combinations you could mix and match with these fun designs. Here’s a look at the different patterns.

Stampin Up Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper - for inspiration and ordering visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I cut a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of DSP to cover the front of a Whisper White card.

Stampin Up Mother's Day card idea using Just Because and Bloom By Bloom stamp sets - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I layered a 1 3/4 x 4 1/4 piece of DSP with a piece of 2 x 4 1/4 coordinating cardstock. Then I wrapped my ribbon around before adhering to the card.  The Mother’s Day sentiment is from the Just Because stamp set and the flower is from the Bloom By Bloom stamp set which is part of the Happiness Blooms Suite in the Occasions Catalog. I cut out the stamped piece and  coordinating cardstock using the Layering Ovals Framelits and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The bow is attached with a glue dot. This card is so quick & easy to make I just had to make another!

Stampin Up Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper and Eastern Beauty Stamp Set makes a quick & easy all occasion card - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Are you wondering where I got the pattern in the middle? I made it by stamping the little dots on Whisper White cardstock. You can make your own patterned paper in any color! For this card I used the Eastern Beauty stamp set to stamp my sentiment and cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I punched the little flower out from the DSP using the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack. I added a Happiness Blooms Enamel Dot in the center.  The flowers at the bottom are fussy cut and adhered with glue dots. You can find a list of all the products I used below.

Of course I had to make my envelopes coordinate. It’s quick & easy to do with a 1/4 inch strip of coordinating cardstock and a 2 x 6 piece of DSP.  Simply adhere to the envelope flap and trim away the excess.

HOME for all Seasons…A Kit To Go!

I had the most wonderful long weekend! It was like a mini vacation! I hosted a three day stamping retreat at my home for some of my stamping friends! We had so much fun creating, sharing ideas, chatting and laughing up a storm!  I didn’t want the weekend to end! We didn’t even have to cook as my husband pampered us all weekend long with breakfast, lunch, and dinner!! I wish  I had taken lots of photos to share with you but we were having so much fun creating we didn’t even stop to take but a few pictures. However, I do have a fun 3D home decor project we made that I am offering as a Kit To Go!

I gifted everyone with a 5 x 7 photo frame and the supplies to make this interchangeable project.

Kindness Rocks!

I love the beach!  We had a wonderful family vacation combing the beach, eating seafood, and just relaxing and chatting away as the waves crashed along the shore. (I think that was the best therapy for me!!!) As we walked along the beach path there was this “rock garden”.  It just made me smile as I read the weathered board and looked at all the different painted rocks.img_5208

How simple yet powerful! It hit me that this is something I could do with my students!  I go back to the doctor this week and I’m hoping to be cleared to go back to school. I would love to involve my Pre-K students in painting rocks and making a special Kindness Garden at school.  I teach my little ones that they can make a difference (even at 4 years old) and we role play ways to show kindness.  This would be something they could be involved in as well as the school community. I can just imagine the kids on their way home from school or church choosing a rock or adding one of their own to share. I’m excited!

The sentiment on my card today says it all.  A little kindness, whether it’s a card, a smile, or a painted rock can brighten someone’s day. I hope you are inspired to spread a little kindness today.

Stampin' Up! Abstract Impressions Thank you card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This simple card layout is one that would work with whatever Designer Series Paper and sentiments you have. I used the Abstract Impressions Stamp set with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Circles Framelits. The ribbon is wrapped around the DSP layer and tied with Linen Thread. The DSP is from the retired Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack.

I have another project to share with you that ties in with today’s theme.

Stampin Up Darling Label Punch Box treat holder- Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I bought some Chocolate “Rocks” at a gift shop and knew I could use them to make little gifts for my team members. The sentiment is just perfect!

The stamp set and punch are from the Darling Label Punch Box.  It includes a beautiful tin filled with crafting must-haves…a versatile 6-piece photopolymer stamp set, clear stamp block, 2 ink spots, and a matching punch.

I hope you enjoyed today’s projects. I would love to hear from you!  Leave a comment sharing an act of kindness…either something you did or something someone did for you. I will pick a random winner to receive some blog candy! I am blessed with many wonderful people in my life.  I strive to pay forward the kindness shown to me. An act of kindness that will forever stand out in my mind was a beautiful handmade prayer shawl I received in the mail after my dear friend, Sister Corda, passed away. It was from someone I had never met that reads my blog.  I was so touched and comforted by her gift and thoughtfulness. I can’t thank her enough! I had the pleasure of meeting Nancy in April and she is truly a wonderful and special person!

Have a great day!

Varied Vases In Color Note Cards

I really appreciate everyone who places an order with me. I like to tuck a note in with my monthly thank you gifts and I love the narrow note cards! I hope my wonderful customers enjoy these bright colored flowers and vases!

These note cards were so much fun to make! I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut the Whisper White ovals and the Layering Circles Framelits to cut my colored cardstock layers.

Stampin Up Varied Vases In Color thank you card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I punched the vase from a sticky note so I could make sure I stamped the stems inside where the vase would be. (This is the same technique I use for masking.)

Stampin Up Varied Vases In Color thank you card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The punch made it quick & easy to punch the flowers and vases. I adhered the flowers with glue dots and the vases with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The envelopes are lined with the same In Color DSP using the 2 1/4″ Circle Punch. Here’s a look at each of the In Color cards.

Sneak Peek…Share What You Love

There’s no denying how much I love to mix and match colors and patterns (in home decor as well as card making)!  Stampin’ Up!’s color coordination (and quality) is what drew me to become a demonstrator. It is easy to create when everything coordinates! Today I have a sneak peek at some absolutely gorgeous new designer series paper, Share What You Love. It will be available in the new annual catalog.

Stampin Up Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper - For inspiration and ordering information visit www.juststampin.com Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My photo does not do this paper justice! These are handpainted designs on heavyweight sheets. You get 24 12 x 12 sheets: 4 each of 6 double sided designs.  Four of the designs have a translucent pearlized finish. I made two fun fold cards today using the Love What You Do Stamp Set and Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Stampin Up Fun Fold card ideas using Share What You Love Suite -Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I was inspired by Linda Droege’s Double Triangle Fun Fold card I received at OnStage.  (You can view Linda’s card HERE.) I love fun fold cards and chose the new Share What You Love Suite to “share what I love”. I changed my cards up a little by embossing one card and adding a belly band to the other.

Stampin Up Love What You Do and Perennial Birthday Fun Fold Card idea - Jeanie Stark SrampinUp

This is a simple fun fold to do.  You can make both cards from 1 sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock. Here’s the details:

  1. Score the 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock in the middle on each side: With the long side at the top, score at 5 1/2. Turn your paper and score on the short side at 4 1/4.
  2. Next, you need to remove the score blade from the Stampin’ Trimmer so you can cut your paper on the diagonal.
  3. Fold and burnish along the score lines with a bone folder.
  4. Cut a 4 x 5 1/4 coordinating cardstock on the diagonal to get 2 triangles.
  5. Cut a piece of 3 3/4 x 5 DSP on the diagonal to get 2 triangles.
  6. *For the first card you need to emboss one of the diagonal cardstock pieces using the Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Adhere layers to the card base.
  7.  Stamp sentiments on Shimmery Whisper White cardstock using Tranquil Tide ink. Cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. *I cut an extra circle to adhere to the back of the doily for a finished look.
  8. Adhere stitched circles to Pearlized Doilies.*Make sure you just put adhesive on part of the doily so you can open the card.
  9. Cut 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White for inside card.  Stamp and add 3/4 x 4 DSP border.
  10. Embellish with Ribbon, Artisan Pearls, and/or flower (fussy cut from DSP).Stampin Up Fun Fold card idea using Share What You Love Suite -Jeanie Stark StampinUp
  11. *Optional belly band measures 1 x 10 and is wrapped loosely around the card and adhered in front. I added some retired Mint Macaron Ribbon (available while supplies last in the Clearance Rack) before adhering the doily with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The belly band slides off to open the card on this version.

Of course I had to dress up my envelopes to coordinate.

Stampin Up Fun Fold card idea using Share What You Love Suite -Jeanie Stark StampinUp

What do you think of this fun fold and the Share What You Love Suite?  Do you prefer it with the belly band or without?

If you would like to make these cards I have some great news…the stamp set, designer series paper, pearlized doilies, and embossing folder I used on these cards will be available to purchase May 1st!  You don’t have to wait until June!!  Stampin’ Up! is “spreading the love” with an early release of the Share What You Love Suite.

2018 Color Revamp

 

 

I is for Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today I’m sharing a bundle from the Occasions catalog that includes the Itty Bitty Punch Pack. I love punches and this adorable punch pack coordinates with the Fruit Basket Stamp Set. Here’s a look at the bundle.

Stampin Up Fruit Basket Bundle - For inspirational ideas and ordering visit my blog, www.juststampin.com -Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love fresh fruit!  We have several orchards nearby where you can pick your own apples in the fall as well as blueberries and strawberries in the spring. We also have a Peach Festival and other “fruit” events in the area so I knew I would get a lot of use out of this bundle. I found some smoothie mixes at the grocery store the other day and picked up a few for my my family and to give as little gifts. I made some fun “envelope cards” to hold the smoothie mixes.

Stampin Up Envelope Punch Board and Fruit Basket Bundle card ideas to hold treats - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

It’s so easy to make any size envelope using the Envelope Punch Board!  All the directions are right on the board (for 66 different sizes) so you never have to worry about what size paper you need or where to punch and score. I started by measuring my smoothie mix package which measured 4 1/2 x 6.  I checked the EPB (Envelope Punch Board) to see what size paper I needed (8 1/2 x 8 1/2) and where to start to punch & score (3 3/4).

After I punched and scored all sides I was ready to embellish. The Tutti-frutti 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper was perfect to go with my fruit smoothies. It is so easy to pick my cardstock colors from the DSP. I adhered my DSP to a layer of cardstock then popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the front of the envelope card. I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Ovals Framelits for the sentiment layers. I stamped the sentiment close to the bottom to leave room for my ribbon in the middle.  I stamped the fruit twice, once in each color, then punched them out with the Itty Bitty Fruit Punches. I wanted the add the leaf layer on top with a Glue Dot to give it a little dimension. I wrapped the ribbon around the envelope and tied a bow.  The ribbon keeps the envelope closed and just slides off to open. I added a stamped layer on the inside which is a hidden surprise under the smoothie mix.

This is a fun card to make even if you don’t have a drink mix to add.  I stamped and cut the sentiment “treat yourself” from the Picture Perfect Birthday set and attached that to the drink mix for an added touch.

Stampin Up Envelope Punch Board and Fruit Basket Bundle birthday card idea with a special treat - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My son has a birthday soon and he loves fresh pineapples. The smoothie mix calls for fresh fruit, water, and ice so I thought I would include a pineapple to go with it.  The tag was attached to the pineapple so rather than cut it off I made a tag to coordinate and adhered it on top.

I love making little gifts like this! The pineapple and card would be a nice welcome gift for a new neighbor or even a treat for Easter. Simply change the sentiment and you are good to go for any occasion.

My daughter will be home for spring break soon and she loves strawberry smoothies! This little treat will be waiting for her.

Stampin Up Envelope Punch Board and Fruit Basket Bundle envelope card idea to hold a special treat - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The strawberries were fun to stamp and punch. I used both Garden Green and Lemon Lime Twist ink for the stems. I love this gingham ribbon.  It is easy to work with and really makes the card pop! Here’a a photo showing the back of the envelope card.  You can see how the ribbon keeps the envelope closed.

This sentiment is perfect for my daughter! This set would also make a great hostess gift, thank you, or just a special treat for a friend or coworker. Who wouldn’t enjoy fresh strawberries and a handmade card?!

Stampin Up Fruit Basket Bundle card idea with Tutti-frutti designer series paper and the Itty Bitty Punch pack - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I have one more treat to share with you today.  My sister recently moved to Virginia and she is going to visit this weekend.  My family refers to our home as the local Bed & Breakfast. (My husband is a great cook!) I always like to leave little pillow gifts for overnight guests so while I was punching strawberries I made this quick Ghirardelli treat holder for my sister.

Stampin Up Fruit Basket Bundle candy treat holder idea made with the Envelope Punch Board - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

You can whip this treat holder in no time at all!  Start with a piece of 4 x 4 designer series paper. Use the Envelope Punch Board to punch and score at 2 inches on each side. Put your candy inside and tie close with ribbon and twine.  I used my circle punches to punch the layers for the sentiment and attached it to the ribbon with a Stampin’ Dimensional. Quick & easy!

I hope you like today’s projects. For more Envelope Punch Board ideas and a video click HERE.  Check out this video showcasing the Itty Bitty Punch Pack and the Fruit Basket Bundle I used in today’s projects.

So which do you prefer: Ghirardelli chocolate, strawberry smoothie, or pineapple smoothie? I would love to hear from you! FYI…I prefer milk chocolate to dark and would rather eat fresh fruit rather than put it in a drink.

F is for Flying Home

Stampin Up Flying Home all occasion card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today I’m sharing a stamp set from the Occasions catalog that is fun to color, Flying Home.

Stampin Up Flying Home Stamp set - For ordering and ideas visit www.juststampin.com Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I have a soft spot for birdhouses.  My dad enjoyed woodworking and I remember the day he made birdhouses for my sisters and me. We painted the birdhouses and then picked out trees in our backyard to hang them.  We couldn’t wait to see who would have a bird living in their birdhouse first.  (I can’t remember who did so it probably wasn’t me. LOL)

I enjoyed a little trip down memory lane as I colored and assembled my card. I stamped the image in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock and cut it out with the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I cut a scallop circle from calypso coral using the Layering Circles Framelits. I colored with Stampin’ Blends choosing colors from the DSP. The card base is a 4 1/4 square with a layer of 4 x 4 Petal Garden Designer Series Paper. The shimmer ribbon is FREE with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration and comes in a pack of 3 different colors.  The finished card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and fits in a standard envelope.

More Get Well Wishes

I am truly blessed with wonderful friends and family! Yesterday I shared some of the cards I received after I dislocated and fractured my elbow. (If you missed yesterday’s cards you can see them HERE.)  It’s been 3 long weeks and I am making progress; however, I still don’t have the strength in my arm to be able to create. (I have tried!!) This is the longest stretch I’ve gone without creating! For now, I have more beautiful cards that I received to share with you. I hope they brighten your day!

Thank Goodness For A Friend Like You for TTTC #22

Stampin Up So Many Shells Thank You Friend card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Get ready to play Tic Tac Toe because this week’s board by Corinne Blake is one of my favorites with simple and fun choices!!!

img_8445

I used all 9 elements on my card which made tic tac toe all 8 ways!!

Stampin Up So Many Shells Thank You Friend card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

It is so much fun and easy to create when you pick 3 in a row and play! Each week I gather the different elements from the board so they are in front of me. This week I started by grabbing my circle framelits and black cardstock then looked through my swatch books for DSP with black and/or stripes. (I found both!) The floral design from Whole Lot of Lovely certainly checked off the box for “vibrant”.  Then I chose a color from the DSP to use for my “layer” and “ribbon”. I knew it would be easy to add a heat embossed thank you sentiment for a friend and by cutting it out with a circle die that checked off 5 elements…circle, black, thank you, friend, heat embossed. How easy is that?!!!  Trust me, having the items in front of you will get those creative juices flowing…you will see things that go together. Just start creating! All I had left to do was a simple layout to put it all together. (*I keep sketches of simple layouts as well as cards I’ve made or received with layouts I like to use as inspiration for future designs. This layout is clean & simple and could easily be used with many different papers and take on a totally different look and feel.  I know I will be using it again!) I hope you will give it a try and play along. For more inspiration click HERE to see what the other designers created this week. I would love for you to add your creation to the Tic Tac Toe Challenge.

Here’s the measurements for today’s card:

Card Base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 (Basic Black)

Layer 1:  5 1/2 x 2 1/4 (Striped DSP)

Layer 2:  4 3/4 x 3 1/2 (Pear Pizzazz)

Layer 3:  4 1/2 x 3 1/4 (Floral DSP)

Layer 4: Stitched Shapes Circle Die

F is for Family

Welcome to my ABC Holiday Series! Holidays are all about celebrating different occasions with family and friends! Many people send family photo cards for the holidays. I like to take a photo and add a personal touch to make my own holiday cards for family and friends. I send a lot of cards so I need it to be simple and this gate fold card with a belly band is just that…quick & easy!

Stampin Up Snowflake Sentiments Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love to make fun fold cards and the gate fold is one of the easiest! The card base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 2 1/8 on each end. I used Whisper White as my card base and added (2) 2 x 5 1/2 strips of Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I wanted to get the most cuts from my 12 x 12 DSP so I added some silver washi tape from the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape down the sides. You could use silver foil or just leave it white.  I like the added sparkle to tie in with the DSP and other silver elements.

The belly band is my favorite part! I cut a 3 x 10 Night of Navy cardstock and wrapped it around my card (creasing it as I went) and secured the ends with Fast Fuse on the back. I stamped my sentiment from the Snowflake Sentiments Stamp Set on Whisper White using Night of Navy ink. (I love this sentiment for a photo card!)  I cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and layered it on a silver foil circle I cut using the Layering Circles Framelits. I use my shape framelits all the time!  (These are on my list of favorite things!) I wrapped some Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon (LOVE THIS!) around my belly band and tied a bow. The ribbon makes the card in my opinion! I added a glue dot under the ribbon to keep it secure.

Stampin Up Snowflake Sentiments Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

It is easy to just slide the belly band off to open the card.

Stampin Up Snowflake Sentiments Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I like that the gate fold card allows you to display the card so you can see the photo on the inside.  You can stamp a sentiment on the side or add a handwritten note.

With my children in two different states it gets harder and harder to get everyone together.  (The photo was taken during our summer vacation.)  I am looking forward to the holidays this year! We will be traveling to Massachusetts to celebrate with all 25 family members.  YEA!!!

Here are a few more Christmas photo card ideas from previous years.

I made a fold over flap for this photo collage I had printed at CVS. (Talk about quick & easy!!) Click on the image to see the original post with directions.
