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!

I wanted to showcase the new 2018-2020 In Colors. I used the Varied Vases Stamp Set and matching punch. You can purchase these as a bundle and save 10%!

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.

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.

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.

Stampin Up thank you card idea using All Things Thanks stamp set and Just Add Color Specialty Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

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!

I love that my daughter wanted to create together and make some thank you cards for others.  The Just Add Color Specialty Designer Series Paper is retiring and you can save 30%  (reg. $13 / NOW $9.10) when you buy it now! It is only available while supplies last so click HERE to order yours today!  There are other fun designs is this paper pack too!  I used some to cover the front of notebooks for students (or adults) to color.

Thank You Note Cards for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #44

Stampin Up True Gentleman thank you card idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUp

img_4938

Happy Thursday!  I am excited to share this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  Do you want to know why? Of course you do!  It’s because I designed this week’s challenge board and there’s a hidden message in the elements! Can you find it?  My previous challenge boards have been ABC boards but this time I thought I would change it up. Here’s this week’s challenge. I hope you will pick 3 and play!

img_1510-1

When I designed this challenge board I had no idea what I would create. I didn’t realize this was going to be the fastest and easiest challenge to do (In My Humble Opinion)! I created tic tac toe every way by using all 9 elements on my card!

Stampin Up True Gentleman thank you card idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Its hard to imagine this clean & simple card used all 9 elements! Did you know Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Color Revamp has navy in the neutral color family? This card came together so fast I decided to make another and another and another and ending up making a little gift set.

Stampin Up True Gentleman thank you card idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My husband often asks me to make him thank you cards and this set makes a great gift for the men in your life.

I used the Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes and the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper.  The DSP measures 2 7/8 x 4 3/8 and is layered on a piece of 3 x 4 1/2 cardstock. The layered panel and the sentiment layer are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Here’s a look at the other 3 cards.

Stampin Up True Gentleman thank you card idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Stampin Up True Gentleman thank you card idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Stampin Up True Gentleman thank you card idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUpI cut 1/2 strips of the DSP to make a matching envelope for each card.Stampin Up True Gentleman thank you card idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I  made the note card holder from a sheet of 12 x 12 DSP. There’s no cutting or adhesive needed!  Just score, fold, and tuck!

Diane Barnes posted a great tutorial how to make these.  You can download her instructions HERE. I adapted mine to hold more cards.  I followed her instructions except I scored it 2, 5 3/4, 6 1/4 and 10 on one side then turned and scored the other side at 2 1/2 and 8 1/4. It holds all 4 note cards and envelopes.

I love the True Gentleman Suite! I usually struggle with masculine cards but the Tailored Tag Punch and True Gentleman Designer Series Paper make it easy. The Navy Corduroy Ribbon is retiring but the punch will carry over. (*There is a beautiful new stamp set to go with it for both men and women in the new catty!)

Now that you see how easy it is to create using this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge Board, I hope you will create something to share.  You could be the next guest designer! Make sure you visit the Tic Tac Toe Challenge to see what the other designers created this week!

Have a wonderful day!

Many Thanks

I have been the recipient of much love and support lately which means I have a lot of thank you notes to write!  When I make thank you cards I usually make several.  It’s easier sometimes to do “assembly line” and I especially like to do that with thank you cards.

Here’s some thank you cards I shared previously that I am thankful I made extras to have on hand.

Saying Good-Bye…Part 1

It’s hard to say good-bye to some of my favorite items from the current catalogs.  Here’s a list of 5 of my favorite (non stamp) items that are on the retiring list…

  1. The Designer Series Paper Stacks

This was probably the biggest shock to me!  I love the DSP in the In Colors and different color families (Brights, Regals, Neutrals, Subtles).  While I never mind when they change up the designs, I can not believe they are being retired.  I use these all the time (decorating envelope flaps, making bags and 3 D projects, card fronts, etc.)! As of today, the Brights, Neutrals, and In Color DSP Stacks are still available.  Get them while you can!

Favorites - DSP

Here’s a set of cards I made using the In Color DSP.  Click on the image to see the original post.

Thank You So Very Much “In Colors”

img_0483

The 2015-2017 In-Colors are set to retire on May 31, 2017.  We KNOW from past experience that they sell out quickly once the retiring list is posted in April.  Do yourself a favor and stock up on your favorite colors NOW, before there is a chance they are gone!!

2015-2017 In Colors

  • Do you have the stamp pads?  Make sure to purchase refills!!
  • Do you like the color? Make sure to stock up on cardstock and Designer Series Papers!
  • And, don’t forget the Marker Set if that’s something you like to have on hand.
  • Remember, there are also In-Color ribbon and embellishment choices that also sell out quickly.

The best part of stocking up NOW is that you earn a FREE Sale-A-Bration product with every $50 you spend. The sentiment I used on today’s cards is from the So Very Much stamp set which you can get for FREE during Sale-A-Bration through March 31st (or while supplies last). I needed some thank you cards to send to the families that sponsored my Family Bingo fundraiser at school. I love the big bold Thank You in this set!  I used the different retiring In Colors for these cards. Do you have a favorite color?

N is for Notes…Love Notes Framelits Dies

Welcome to my alphabet series showcasing some of the new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs. Today I am showcasing the Love Notes Framelits Dies from the Sending Love Suite featured on pages 14 in the catalog. I made several projects today using these dies and photos.

img_8719

These photos are of my daughter’s cat, Storm.  Ariane rescued her and 4 of her brothers and sisters from a storm drain.  They were frostbitten and needed to be bottle fed. We found homes for the other 4 kittens but Storm and Ariane had bonded. For 6 years this cat slept with her, sat on her lap while she worked on her computer, and followed her around like a puppy dog.  Storm even waited outside the bathroom door while she showered!  I don’t know who misses my daughter more, the cat or me! I’m sending this card, picture frame, and thank you notes in her Valentine’s Day care package.

img_8722

I love photography as much as I love stamping! This Valentine card and coordinating envelope were quick & easy to make using the Love Notes Framelits Dies and Sending Love Stamp Set.  I purchased this set as a bundle and saved 10%.

sealed-with-love-bundle

Look at all these dies…14 of them!  I love the mini envelope die!  You can even remove the little note from inside the envelope. How adorable! I wanted it to look like Storm was bringing the note to her.

img_8721

I cut the die from the Sending Love Glassine Sheets. The note was stamped on Blushing Bride cardstock with Sweet Sugarplum ink. The colors match Storm’s cute little nose and ears! I used glue dots to adhere the envelope.  I even stamped the back of the envelope and added a die cut heart.

img_8720

I purchased the cute little silver picture frame at the Dollar Store!  (I certainly didn’t break the bank on this gift!) I stamped the sentiment and then die cut the cluster of hearts from the set and attached it to the picture frame with 2 mini glue dots.  Easy does it!

img_8714

My daughter’s favorite color is purple and I was so excited when I found purple wrapped KitKat candy!  The perfect gift from her kitty!

I always make my daughter’s thank you cards and she sent out the last of her thank you notes after Christmas.  I used some more photos of her cat and made these thank you notes using the Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. You get 20 note cards & envelopes for $6.00…I think that’s the best deal in the catalog!  I use them all the time for thank you notes!  I printed the 2 x 3 photos at CVS.  I got 4 per sheet for just 35 cents!

img_8723

I used the Falling Petals Embossing Folder to emboss the front of the card.  I couldn’t decide which I liked better for the mini envelope… smoky slate or blushing bride. What do you think? I stamped the thanks from Suite Sentiments and wrapped the mini envelope with black baker’s twine.  I love these stinkin’ cute mini envelopes with removable notes! This card would be great for our cat sitter too!

Here’s a few more ideas showcasing the Love Notes Framelits Dies and Sending Love Stamp Set. I made these 3 x 3 notes at the Stampin’ Up! convention back in November.

O is for One Sheet Wonder with DSP

Welcome to the ABC’s with DSP!  This month I am featuring projects showcasing Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper. Today I am using the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper to make 5 cards and envelopes from just one sheet of 12 x 12 DSP.

img_5468
One Sheet Wonder using Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper

I love working with one sheet of 12 x 12 paper and seeing what I can make.  I wanted some quick cards so I cut my 12 x 12 sheet of Designer Series Paper into 6 4×6 inch pieces.  The Festive Birthday DSP coordinates with Emerald Envy, Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, and Whisper White cardstock so I pulled out a sheet of each to play with. Here’s how I put the cards together.

img_5476
Festive Birthday Thank You card

I trimmed a piece of precut 4 x 6 DSP to 4 x 5 1/4 and then just folded down one corner and adhered it to a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White.  I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Happenings Stamp Set in Tempting Turquoise ink to match my card base. I punched the flower from a scrap piece of melon mambo using the pansy punch.  I added a white perfect accent to the center and adhered it to my card with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I used the 3/4 x 4 inch leftover piece of DSP inside the card. (I just adhered it to the bottom of a piece of Whisper White measuring 4 x 5 1/4. I forgot to take a photo.  Sorry!)

I cut 2 pieces of 4 x 6 DSP in half to make 4 2×6 pieces to decorate the envelopes. I cut a 1/4 inch strip from each color of cardstock used for the card bases to put on the envelopes with the DSP.

My next card also uses a piece 4 x 6 DSP trimmed to 4 x 5 1/4. (This time I saved the 3/4 x 4 inch piece for another card.)  I love the way the Stampin’ Up! DSP is double sided.  Here I used the Bold Butterfly Framelits to cut my butterfly from a piece of 2 1/4 x 5 Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from Butterfly Basics in Emerald Envy, cut the banner, and attached some Emerald Envy ribbon and a bow. I used a glue dot to adhere the butterfly and added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

The first 2 cards and envelopes used 3 pieces of the 4 x 6 DSP. For my next 2 cards I will use 2 more pieces.  I cut one piece of 4 x 6 DSP in half to make 2 3×4 inch pieces. (The other 4 x 6 piece is used for the envelopes.)

I adhered the 3 x 4 piece on to a Crushed Curry card base.  I stamped the sentiment from Watercolor Words on Whisper White cardstock with Crushed Curry ink.  I used the Layering Circles Framelits to cut the sentiment and a scalloped circle from Emerald Envy cardstock.  I added a piece of the Emerald Envy ribbon with a glue dot and attached the sentiment layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Rhinestone Basic Jewels finished off this quick & simple card.

My next card uses the 3/4 x 4 ” piece of DSP leftover from trimming the striped paper on the banner card. (It could be used on the inside of a card or layered on the front like I did here.)

I adhered the DSP to a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from Watercolor Words using Melon Mambo ink.  I wrapped some Melon Mambo thick Baker’s Twine and tied a bow before adhering it all to the card base using Fast Fuse.

I cut my last piece of 4 x 6 DSP in half to make the card below. I attached the DSP to a Pumpkin Pie card base.  This card could easily be vertical or horizontal. This is one of those layouts I use again and again.  It seems to look different every time just by changing the DSP and matching cardstock, ribbon, cut out shape, and/or orientation.

I stamped the sentiment from Suite Sayings using Pumpkin Pie ink.  I punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch and also punched one out from a scrap of Peekaboo Peach to layer the sentiment. I attached the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a Peekaboo Peach bow using a glue dot.

How cool is it that you can make 5 quick cards using just 1 piece of 12 x 12 DSP?! When you add the different sentiments and embellishments no one would ever know it was just a 4 x 6 piece of paper that started it all!  They all look different. Do you have a favorite?
