Honey Bee Lip Balm Box and Retiring Special Offer

Honey Bee has been one of my most used sets from the Mini Catalog. Here’s another fun project that is quick & easy to make!

Stampin' Up! Ornate Garden and Honey Bee Burt's Bees Balm Box idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love to give little gifts and this is something everyone can use. This little box is the perfect size for a Burt’s Bees Lip Balm. The floral print from the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper matches the colors on the Replenishing lip balm. I love it when it works out like that!

Here’s the details:

  • Ornate Garden DSP – 4 1/4 x 4 1/4  Score at 3/4 and 3 1/2 on one side, score at 1, 1 3/4, 2 1/2, and 3 1/4 on other side.
  • Remove the 4 corner pieces.
  • Cut and notch the outer edges as shown below. *Don’t notch the middle.Stampin' Up! Ornate Garden and Honey Bee Burt's Bees Balm Box idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
  • Add adhesive to the 4 outer notched ends and fold the box together.
  • Stamp the sentiment on a piece of 1/2″ wide Whisper White and notch the end.
  • Stamp the flower and the bee on Whisper White with Memento Black ink. Color with Stampin’ Blends.
  • Cut out the bee with the Detailed Bee dies and add to a mini clothespin with Glue Dots.
  • Fussy cut the flower and adhere it and the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Put the lip balm inside and clip the clothespin on top.

I was hoping the Honey Bee Bundle would stick around a bit longer but it seems it’s going to be “buzzing” away. It is one of my favorite retiring sets!

Today is the final showcase of cards from my first Just Stampin’ Card Swap. I can tell from all your comments the past two days that you have enjoyed these beautiful cards as much as I have!  The collection of cards might not all have current Stampin’ Up! products, but every card gives good ideas for color combinations, layouts, and techniques. Let the inspiration continue with some more lovely layers and fun folds…

I had so much fun opening all this “Happy Mail” and sharing the variety of beautiful cards with you. Each creation had something I want to incorporate into future projects. I will certainly do another card swap and next time I hope more of you will join us and share your creations! I really love how we inspire each other as we share handmade kindness. Thank you to everyone who left comments for these talented stampers…I’m sure they could feel the love!

U is for Up and Away Thinlits 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 Up and Away Thinlits Dies and Lift Me Up Stamp Set.  I couldn’t stop playing with this bundle! Here’s 4 cards I made.


My colors came from the Carried Away Designer Series Paper (Free with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration): Mint Macaron, Night of Navy, Peekaboo Peach, Watermelon Wonder, Smokey Slate, and Whisper White.


The DSP coordinates with the Lift Me Up Bundle. The DSP panels on all 4 cards measure the same, 3 1/4 x 3 1/4, with a layer of cardstock just  a smidge (1/8″) more.  There’s so many different sentiments in this set which work for birthdays, congratulations, thank you, thinking of you, and love. Here’s a look at the Lift Me Up Bundle.


Check out this video showing all the uplifting possibilities!

I tried something different on each of my cards using the stamp set and dies.

img_8953 These two cards have stamped balloons which I then cut out with the framelits.  The one on the left I stamped twice, once on mint macaron and once on white.  I cut the top part of the mint macaron balloon and adhered it to the whisper white then popped it up on dimensionals.  I was trying to get the look of the balloons in the DSP.  The one on the left was easy to match the DSP by just stamping in different inks and running it through the Big Shot to cut it out.


These 2 cards use the Thinlits Die with the Precision Base Plate.  I love this die!!! It’s easy to get different colors perfectly sized to fit with the dies in the set.  I used some DSP for the card on the left and cardstock for the card on the right.  I turned the dies over and pieced them together like a puzzle and held them together with Tear & Tape.  Then I used the Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere the hot air balloon.  I added some rhinestone jewels to one and  adhered the balloons with dimensionals to lift them up.


Here’s a look at each of the finished cards with matching envelopes.






Do you have a favorite?  If you purchase the Lift Me Up Bundle (# 144712  $45.75) I will send you a card kit to make all 4 cards. Everything will be precut and ready to assemble.  Use the January hostess code EPGDT3KF when you check out and I will put the card kit in the mail to you as my thanks for shopping with me.  If you add another small item ($4.25 or more) you will qualify for a FREE Sale-A-Bration item.  🙂 Click HERE to Shop.

Do you have a long wish list (valued at $99 or more)?  If so, then you need the Ultimate Bundle! It’s one of the best decisions I made!  I would love to share the fun with you!

Have an Uplifting Day!
