A Pocketful of Happiness

Welcome to my 12 Days of Giveaways! Let’s start right off with today’s winner….Congratulations to Deanette! Email me (j.stark@myactv.net) your address and I’ll put a kit in the mail for you to make the votive candle boxes! I am having so much fun sending little gifts in the mail and I love reading all the comments! There’s still many gifts to go in my 12 Days of Giveaways!  All you have to do is leave a comment on my blog for a chance to win each day! Today’s project is one I recently sent to everyone who took advantage of my Free Shipping offer (through Cyber Monday). I hope they like their “pocketful of happiness”.

Stampin' Up! Pocketful of Happiness In Color note card / gift card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I knew I wanted to use the Pocket Dies.  The die makes the perfect pocket to slide in a gift card, cash, or in this case a check (to cover the cost of their shipping charges). The Pocketful of Happiness Stamp Set coordinates with the dies and is one of my absolute favorites from the annual catalog! I have used it for so many birthday and thank you cards. It has great sentiments I use all the time!

You can color the images with blends, markers, watercolor pencils, etc. I was inspired by Erica Cerwin’s tone on tone card and adapted it for my note cards. I loved making these cards using the different patterns in the 6 x 6 In Color DSP.

Stampin' Up! Pocketful of Happiness In Color note card / gift card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These are really quick & easy to make! The DSP measures 3 x 4 1/2  and is adhered to a cardstock layer that is 1/8 larger. Stamp the pocket image in the same color ink as the cardstock and cut with the die.  Fold and burnish the score lines and add adhesive to the folded flaps (I recommend Tear & Tape or Liquid Glue). Add Wink of Stella to the dove and a couple pearls on the flowers. I used the Delightful Tag Topper to punch a 2 x 3 1/4 piece of Whisper White cardstock to put in the pocket (along with the check). A simple knot with the Scalloped Linen Ribbon adds a nice touch and makes it easy to pull out the stamped note. Inside the card I stamped the pretty floral image at the top and added a sticky note to write a personal message.  That way they can remove the sticky note and reuse the card to send to someone else! Pretty clever don’t you think?!

These make great birthday cards if you want to give cash or a gift card! Stamp the birthday sentiment from the set and you are done! Who wouldn’t love a pocketful of happiness like that?! Here’s some of the other ones I made using more In Colors!

How perfect is that floral image for the envelope?! Do you have a favorite In Color or DSP pattern? Leave me a comment and you could be the next winner in my 12 Days of Giveaways! The ladies at the post office are getting in on the fun as much as I am!  They want to know what’s in the envelopes I’m mailing out each day! They feel the envelopes and try to guess! LOL I’m lucky I live so close as I spend a lot of time there!!

Have a great day!

A Trip Down Daisy Lane

The other day I posted a set of daisy cards showcasing the new In Colors.  If you missed that post you can view it HERE.  Before I announce the winners of those cards I want to share some cards that were inspired by my stamped envelopes the other day.

Stampin' Up! Daisy Lane In Color thank you note card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

After I stamped the envelopes the other day I feel in love with those daisies and decided they deserved a card of their own. I used the new Daisy Lane Stamp Set (available June 4th) and the Daisy Delight Stamp Set.

Stampin Up Daisy Lane and Daisy Delight Stamp Sets - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love how these two stamp sets compliment each other. And the Daisy Punch works with both sets! A NEW medium Daisy Punch to go with the Daisy Lane Stamp Set will be available when the annual catalog debuts on June 4th.  You’ll be able to purchase the set as a bundle and save 10%! What you won’t be able to purchase come June is the Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes I used for today’s cards! They are retiring and available while supplies last. I love these little note cards!  They are perfect for tucking in gifts or giving with a plate of cookies, etc. You get 20 note cards & envelopes in a pack! I always love to decorate the envelopes to coordinate with my cards. Here’s a close up of each…in the 2019-2021 In Colors.

This is what I call simple stamping! I used the Stamparatus for perfect alignment every time!

I added a bow using the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread (from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack available June 4th) and I was done – quick & easy! It would be great to make a bunch of these to have on hand to give out when you go through the drive thru for your morning coffee, visit the doctor’s office, stay at a hotel, etc.  I just recently had surgery and I can not say enough about how wonderful the nursing staff was at the hospital! I am so thankful for their help and support! I will be sending them thank you cards for sure! I was hoping to be able to get enough blog posts scheduled in advance so I could have surgery and be back to blogging before anyone knew; however it seems that won’t be the case.  If you’ve been following my blog you know I’ve been trying to avoid surgery the past 15 months after dislocating and fracturing my elbow.  It has been a long process with lots of physical therapy but it seems there was more nerve and ligament damage than anticipated. I am hoping I’m finally on the road to recovery!  My daughter will be home from college next week and I know she will be a great help!  I’ll be putting her to work getting product shares ready. *More information about my “Suite” Product Shares coming soon!

And now for the news you’ve been waiting for…

From the comments the other day it seems that Terracotta Tile is the favorite In Color.  I appreciate everyone who took the time to comment.  I always love to read what you have to say! Congratulations to the following winners…. Kim Johnson, Claudia Piegdon, Chris R., Linda, Mary Ann H!  Email me (j.stark@myactv.net) your address and I will put your card in the mail.  Enjoy the new In Colors!

Have a great day!

Butterfly Gala Note Cards

The Butterfly Gala Bundle is one of my absolute favorite bundles in the Occasions Catalog! I love stamp sets with a matching punch and this bundle can be used for many different occasions!  Obviously I’m not the only one who loves this bundle as Stampin’ Up! sold out of their initial supply quickly!  I am happy to report they are back in stock so if you didn’t get it before, you’ll want to grab it now while you can! I made two quick & easy note cards that showcase this stamp set and punch!

The Butterfly Gala Stamp Set has 4 different sets of butterflies as well as solid images to add color to these beauties.  There’s also several sentiments which makes this set check off my #1 requirement…versatility!

You can choose to do a little Two-Step stamping to add color to your butterflies or color them with Stampin’ Markers or Blends.  You can even watercolor which makes for endless possibilities! I colored mine using Stampin’ Blends.

I love how this stamp set coordinates with the Butterfly Duet Punch.  You can stamp and punch both butterflies at once!

I make a lot of thank you cards and the Stampin’ Up! note cards and envelopes are the perfect size for a handwritten note or stamped sentiment. I added a little Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper to the front, stamped the envelopes to match and these cards were complete in no time at all!
