Christmastime is Here…But These Products (and Kit To Go) Will Be Gone!

Welcome to my 12 Days of Giveaways! This is so  much fun! I feel like Oprah…”You’re a winner! You’re a winner! You’re a Winner!” LOL (I wish I had her budget!!) Today is all about the Christmastime is Here Suite. I’m sad to say that Saturday is the last day to order products from the Christmastime is Here Suite. Christmastime is Here banner

I absolutely love the Designer Series Paper in this suite and have used it for many different projects. I used one of the dies in the set to cut out this flower from the DSP.

Stampin' Up! Basic Pattern Decorative Mask with Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper All Occasion card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This card is one of my favorites! It’s simple, bold, and can be used for just about any occasion (birthday, sympathy, wedding, get well, thank you, thinking of you, Valentine’s Day, or Christmas)! Are you wondering where I got the gold polka dots? This is one of the cards that was included in my Basic Decorative Masks Kit To Go. I have a few extra kits still available.  If you would like to receive this kit (to make 4 different cards using each of the Basic Decorative Masks) with the tutorials, email me (with Decorative Mask Kit in the subject). Click HERE for more details.

I didn’t purchase everything in the Christmastime is Here Suite; however, I did buy the DSP, Gold Glimmer Ribbon, Gold Enamel Dots, and the Dies. I decided not to purchase the stamp set because I already have a lot of Christmas stamps and knew I could use these products for many different occasions with other stamp sets! Take a look at this gorgeous DSP! (I’m actually on my third pack!) Trust me, the photo does not do it justice!

S is for Snowman

Welcome to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! Throughout this series I have been sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC! The Snowman Season Stamp Set (Say that fast 3 times! LOL) and coordinating Snowman Builder Punch  make it quick & easy to create fun projects. Snowmen make winter fun! Take a look at this cute bundle.

Stampin' Up! Snowman Season Bundle - for inspiration and ordering information visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I told myself I didn’t need this set because I had the Spirited Snowman stamp set from last year (which I also love)! However, I caved in and decided you can never have too many snowmen because these are just too stinkin’ cute! (Plus I love having the punch to coordinate!) This set has everything you need from fun snowmen, great sentiments for the front and inside, and all kinds of possibilities for different projects! I love that it has the to/from for tags too! This stamp set reminded me of a series of books about snowmen by Caralyn and Mark Buehner. One of my favorite books in the series is Snowmen at Night.

Snowmen At Night

This delightful, magical tale solves the mystery of what snowmen do at night. My kids enjoyed this story and would look at the book over and over again to find the hidden objects in every scene. It’s just one of those fun stories that appeal to all ages! I love to give books as gifts for kids (and adults too).  I always like to give something to go with the book/story. One of the activities the snowmen do in the story is drink hot chocolate. I made this simple slider card to hold a cocoa mix to give with the book.

Stampin' Up! Snowman Season Slider Card idea for Cocoa Mix - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This is a simple project to make. You could use DSP or cardstock to make the slider. I wanted mine to coordinate with the book so I chose to go with the Seaside Spray cardstock. It measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/4 and is scored at 2 1/4 and 6.  I created a snowy background with the snowflakes stamp. I inked it up with VersaMark then heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder for a subtle shiny background. I folded along the score lines and added a piece of Tear & Tape to close it on the back. I used the Detailed Trio Punch to punch a hole at the top to thread the Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon. You slide the cocoa mix inside the card and tie a bow at the top.  You just pull up the ribbon to get the mix.

You could easily adapt this with soup mix for a get well card or candy bars for special treats. Slider cards are quick & easy to make and fun to receive!

I stamped the snowman in Memento Black Ink and colored with my Stampin’ Blends. I cut the snowman and sentiment with the Stitched Shapes Dies and layered each with a scalloped border cut from Silver Glimmer Paper. I adhered the snowman and the sentiment to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I couldn’t resist adding the tiny snowballs from the Let It Snow Embellishment Kit.

Stampin' Up! Snowman Season Slider Card idea for Cocoa Mix - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

If you have kids, grandkids, nieces, or nephews to buy for this year, I recommend this book (available from Amazon) and fun treat. You could even give with a “Build A Snowman Kit” (a top hat, carrot nose, and scarf). If you have more than 1 child per family there are other great books in the series (Snowmen at Christmas, Snowmen at Work, Snowmen At Play, Snowmen All Year). Give one to each child along with a cocoa slider card and enjoy reading together!

Have a great day!

H is for Harvest Hellos

Welcome to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! Throughout this series I will be sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC! Today I have two fun projects using the Harvest Hellos stamp set and coordinating Apple Builder Punch. As you will see, the punch can make more than just apples!

Stampin Up! Harvest Hellos Stamp Set and Apple Builder Punch gift and treat ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My daughter is coming home next week for her Fall Break (I am so excited!!) This is her last year at Georgia Tech and she has been so busy! She’s taking a graduate course and working on research. I am just so proud of her! She loves and misses her cats and I found this adorable cat pillow when I was out shopping one day. I was going to send it to her but it looked so cute in her bedroom I decided to keep it for a surprise for when she comes home. I had fun using the Apple Builder Punch to make this sweet coordinating treat.

Stampin' Up Harvest Hellos Bundle makes cute Kit Kat treat boxes using the Apple Builder Punch - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My daughter loves Kit Kats and this little treat box is the “purrfect” size.

Here’s the details to make the box to hold a mini candy treat.

Materials & Measurements

  • Highland Heather cardstock: 2 x 9 1/2, scored at 1/2, 1 1/2, 2 1/2, 3, 6. 6 1/2.
  • Basic Black cardstock : scrap to punch Apple builder Punch and 2 “ears” using Ornament Punch

Assembly

  • Fold and Burnish score lines with a bone folder. Use the die from Merry Christmas (or other die/punch you may have) to cut opening for candy.
  • Add Tear & Tape Adhesive as shown. Insert candy bar, remove adhesive, and make sure box bottom and top are flat before adhering.

    Stamp the sentiment inside using the Harvest Hellos Stamp set and Memento Black Ink.

  • Wrap the ribbon around and tie and bow in front to allow the cover to slide under to close.
  • Punch a scrap piece of black cardstock with the Apple Builder Punch and trim off the top.
  • Punch 2 ears using the Ornament Punch and a 3/4″ strip of cardstock. Color with the White Watercolor Pencil and adhere with Tear & Tape on the back. *Do not remove the adhesive back.
  • Add 3 strips of Silver Metallic Thread with a Glue Dot for whiskers. Cover in the middle with a nose cut from a scrap of Blushing Bride cardstock. Use Watercolor Pencil to draw mouth. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin Up Harvest Hellos and Apple Builder Punch candy bar treat holder idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love to make little hostess gifts and I found the best smelling scented sachet for Fall ( I believe I got it at Cracker Barrel). I have been enjoying the aromas of ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon. I should have bought more because this is going to be hard to part with! The package coordinates so well with the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper.

I don’t usually show you projects I’ve make with products that are retired (because I know how frustrating it can be to want to make something and can’t get what you need); however, one of my favorite retired tools is in the Clearance Rack and on sale! I thought the Envelope Punch Board was the best $20 I ever spent when I bought it (about 7 years ago).  You can SAVE 40% (on Clearance)! Price$20.00 $12.00  What a deal!!!!  It’s only available while supplies last so if you don’t already own one, BUY IT NOW! It is so easy to make all kinds of fun projects! The directions and measurements you need are right on the board so you don’t have to worry about losing them! I used the Envelope Punch Board to make this quick & easy packaging for this scented sachet. My package measured 4 1/2 x 6 1/2. I checked the measurements on the EPB and I needed a piece of 8 3/4 x 8 3/4 cardstock.  Well, that was a problem because our cardstock measures 8 1/2 x 11 (and I didn’t have a pack of the 12 x 12 for the color I needed) so I did what anyone would do…improvise.  I simply folded down the top of my package 1/2″ so now it would work with a 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of cardstock. That I could work with! I followed the directions on the EPB and punched and scored my cardstock. It’s so quick & easy! The tool you need is built right in and it even has a corner rounder built in! (Trust me, you will love this tool!!!)  I placed the package in the middle and folded it on the score lines to close it up like an envelope.  I made a belly band using a piece of 3 x 12 DSP and just wrapped it around the and secured it on the back with adhesive. I adhered a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock to give it a border across the top and bottom on the front only. The best part was making the 3D pumpkin with the Harvest Hellos Stamp Set and Apple Builder Punch.  This set is available as a bundle for a 10% savings!

I stamped 3 pumpkins in Cajun Craze Ink on the same color cardstock and punched them out. I folded each in half and adhered together by just adhering one half to the next.  I stamped the stem with Soft Suede ink on the same color cardstock and punched it out then secured it to the back of the pumpkins with a glue dot. The leaves are stamped in Mossy Meadow on Mossy Meadow and fussy cut out. You could use the other leaf that goes with the punch but it is definitely an apple leaf and I wanted mine to go with the pumpkin. I adhered one behind the pumpkin and one in front with glue dots. Next, I cut a Crumb Cake Circle with the Layering Circles Dies and adhered the pumpkin. I looped a piece of Crumb Cake Ribbon from the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo Pack and secured to the back of the tag with glue dots Then popped it up on the belly band with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I love how it turned out! Here’s peek how it looks when you remove the belly band and  open it. You can stamp and/or write a message inside. Just add a piece of cardstock under the package.

I got together with some friends this weekend and we made pumpkins.  We used many different fabrics, socks, hats, (basically anything we could find). We grabbed sticks out of the backyard for stems and burnt our fingers with the glue gun!  It was tons of fun with lots of laughs!  Here’s some photos.
