A CASE for Inspiration

Stampin' Up! 2019 - 2021 In Color Painted Poppies card ideas with Celebrate Sunflowers, Seaside Notions, and Healing Hugs - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Do you sometimes find yourself in a creative block and in need of some inspiration? I think it happens to all of us at one time or another! That’s when I search Pinterest for something that catches my eye. Then, I CASE it! “CASE” is often referred to as Copy And Share Everything or Copy And Share with Everyone or Copy And Selectively Edit. I find I do more of the latter. When I’m creating I often try different versions and sometimes, by the time I’m done, it ends up totally different than my inspiration.  Sometimes you just need a place to start to get your mojo back.

Here’s what you can do if you need a dose of inspiration:

Choose one aspect of your chosen inspiration piece, and copy it on a new project.

  1. Copy the layout
  2. Copy the color scheme
  3. Copy the technique

My cards today were inspired by my upline, Mary Fish. Here’s her card:

Stampin' Up! Lovely You card idea - visit my CASE version at juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I was drawn to the simple layout design as well as the Designer Series Paper. (I love polka dots!!!) Mary created her beautiful card using Misty Moonlight (which I love!) but I decided to give the 2019-2021 In Colors some love! I substituted the Butterfly Gems for the heart. I also decided to change the layout from vertical to horizontal and rather than layer the whole piece of DSP, I just added strips along the sides and repeated that on my coordinating envelopes. Here’s a closer look at each of my cards.Stampin' Up! 2019 - 2021 In Color Painted Poppies birthday card idea with Seaside Notions - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I thought this would make a great gift set of all occasion cards. All 5 cards & envelopes fit easily into a Stampin’ Up! acetate card box. I just wrapped some In Color Scalloped Linen  Ribbon around my box and my gift set was complete! *Just put the card on top for the reason you are giving it to the recipient (thank you, birthday, etc.). Quick & Simple!

Buzzing with Excitement for the Pals Blog Hop

Pals Blog Hop Badge March 2020Blog Hop Mystery Candy badge

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. This month we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Pals Blog Hop with “Critters” from the Stampin’ Pretty Pals. Many of the design team members are offering “Mystery Blog Candy” of their choice to 1 lucky winner. To play along, just leave a comment on as many blog posts as desired. A random winner will be announced on a subsequent blog post by each participating design team member. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you “hop”(or “buzz”) along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin' Up! Honey Bee Mini Curvy Keepsake Box idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These little critters are “buzzing” with excitement! I started blogging just before my youngest left for college. (She set up this blog to keep me busy so I wouldn’t miss her so much.) It’s hard to believe she will be graduating in less than two months! (Fun Fact….Her college mascot is named Buzz.)  Time does fly (or buzz) by when you’re having fun! I’m celebrating my 7 year anniversary with Stampin’ Up! this week! (I made a smart decision and joined during Sale-A-Bration!) I have met so many wonderful friends through my journey with Stampin’ Up! This card is headed to one of those sweet friends.

Stampin' Up! Honey Bee Thinking of You peek-a-boo card idea for a friend - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love this color combination! This is one of those cards that just evolved as I was creating with the Honey Bee Bundle (one of my favorite sets in the Mini Catalog).  I was planning to make a wreath which turned in to a “peek-a-boo” card when I got ink on the card front. Rather than start over I just punched it out.  Anyway, in the end I really love how it turned out. Here’s the card details:

  • Card Base: 4 1/4 x 11 Whisper White scored at 5 1/2 for a side fold card
  • Inside card: 4 x 5 1/4 Basic Black and 3 3/4 x 5 Whisper White
  • Adhere 1 1/4″ Daffodil Delight and 1″ strip of DSP along left side of card front.
  • Punch (or die cut) a 2 1/4″ Circle in the card front and another with the Golden Honey DSP. Adhere Circle DSP through the opening on the front to inside of card. *This helps guide you where to write or stamp on the inside so it won’t show through.
  • Stamp flowers around the circle using Memento Black Ink and color with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends (lightly) or Watercolor Pencil.
  • Make a double bow with Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Ruched Ribbon and attach with a Glue Dot.
  • Stamp sentiment on 1/2″ strip of Daffodil Delight and notch the ends. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Stamp bee on scrap piece of Whisper White and cut with Detailed Bee Dies. Color with Daffodil Delight Blends and Clear Wink of Stella. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensional.
  • Punch (or die cut) a 2″ circle from Basic Black cardstock then center and cut 2 1/2″ Circle to create a frame.  Glue on inside of card around the circle opening.
