Shine A Light On Peace for the Pals Blog Hop

December All that Sparkles and Shines post graphic

Welcome to the Pals monthly blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here! December is time for glitz and bling with  “All that Sparkles & Shines”. Today we feature projects that sparkle or shine. Maybe even a little of both.

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I live in Maryland not far from the Antietam National Battlefield. One of our family traditions is to visit the battlefield the first weekend in December for their Annual Memorial Illumination. It is the largest memorial illumination in all of North America and this year marked their 30th anniversary. Each luminary (over 23,000) represents a soldier’s sacrifice during the bloodiest one-day battle of the Civil War. (I’m a bit of a history buff.) There are no words adequate to describe the event…to see these hallowed grounds lit up is unbelievably surreal!

Antietam National Battlefield

I was inspired by my recent visit to create this set of luminaries.

Stampin Up Large Letter Framelits Peace Luminaries for Christmas Home decor idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These are simple to make. For each one I cut a 5 x 8 1/4 piece of Garden Green cardstock and scored each at 2, 4, 6, and 8. I used the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies (available Jan. 3rd in the Occasions Catalog) to cut the shape out for my light to shine through. I was so excited when I saw these dies in the new catalog! You get 13 different sizes which feature stitching inside and outside the frame! How cool is that?!

I cut my vellum at 1 7/8 x 3 1/2 and adhered it to the back with glue dots. I cut the letters from the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper using the Large Letter Framelits and adhered these to the vellum. I used Tear & Tape along the 1/4 edge to secure together.

A battery operated tealight fits inside for a nice glow. I added some Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon to tie it together for that “sparkle and shine”.

You can make these to give as a gift or decorate your mantle or bookcase. These make the perfect night lite for a child’s bedroom (you could spell out the child’s name) or any room (use any die).

Here’s a few more photos of the Illumination.

I am thankful for our men and women in the Armed Forces throughout the world.  My thoughts and prayers are with those who lost their lives, so the world may someday enjoy world peace.

OnStage Convention last month.

Stampin Up Spirited Snowman fun fold card idea for a friend - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love this happy little guy and he was so much fun to color with my Stampin’ Blends.  I enjoy making this fun fold card. (You can view my photo tutorial for how to make it HERE.) Here’s a picture of it from the side.

Stampin Up Spirited Snowman fun fold card idea for a friend - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I like the way this fun fold card stands up.  It can also fold flat to mail in a regular envelope.  I dressed is up a little with some snowflakes cut from the Blizzard Thinlits Die (also retiring) and the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.  Here’s my attempt at an infinity shot of these guys all lined up.

Special Edition…Just Stampin’ Holiday Kit Buffet To Go

I am offering a special “holiday edition” of my Just Stampin’ Kit Buffet To Go this month! Take the stress out of the holidays with some ready to go handmade projects to make your gift giving quick & easy! The special holiday edition of my kit buffet includes 4 projects… a gift card holder, a box, some tags, and a calendar card kit (you can keep for yourself or give as a gift)! *My calendar cards have been very popular! You can view some past calendar cards HERE. (I change them up a bit each year.)

Holiday “Kit Buffet” TO GO cost:  $12 (plus $3.00 shipping and handling)

I have been as busy as Santa’s elves designing these projects so I can get them out to you in time for the holidays. Here’s how you can reserve your seat at the holiday buffet table:

Email me (j.stark@myactv.net) with “Holiday Kit Buffet” in the subject line. Include your full name, mailing address, and email address.  I will send you a PayPal invoice. *You do not need a PayPal account in order to make your payment. Upon receiving my invoice, you may choose the credit card/debit card option instead of using a PayPal account. Instructions are given and the process for payment is simple.
Orders need to be placed by December 5th.

Just Stampin’ Buffet TO GO Kits include:

  • Pre-cut supplies for four projects (stamped images not included, in accordance with Stampin’ Up! policy)
  • Envelopes for non 3D projects
  • Pre-punched items and/or Big Shot items, such as die cuts and textured embossed
  • Ribbon and/or embellishments

My “Kit Buffet TO GO!” is intended to make it easy for you to be able to see and try out different products while being able to substitute different stamps you already have. You don’t have to worry about having coordinating designer series paper to go with the cardstock, the right color ribbon to match, or other embellishments…everything is in the kit!  You just need to stamp and adhere.

If you have ordered my card kit buffet before, I would love for you to leave a comment. Here’s what others have said about my past kits:

I love your kits. Your attention to detail is amazing. Instructions are fantastic and precise so that each item is quick and easy to put together. The pictures are a big plus in following the instructions.. Thank you so much for making these kits available to us.   Bernice P

Oh my goodness, thank you! I so enjoyed the last kit! Kept me occupied for a week! And this set is equally as beautiful! You do such thoughtful and intriguing projects! Please know that your talents and creativity are appreciated! (And your directions are a retired teacher’s dream!)  Nancy B.

I worked on your Card Buffet this afternoon. What a delightful way to

spend an afternoon! Your directions and photos really are EXCELLENT. I
think that part of the reason that you write such good instructions is
because you are programmed to teach little kids; it makes you really
good at spelling out every step. Well done!  ~M~

My kit arrived today and I’m so excited!  What great cards and I love the flexibility.  They’re beautiful.   Thanks, Susan

Your kit arrived yesterday and I’ve had great fun putting it together. You did a terrific job!  I love the way everything coordinates (which is my biggest challenge) and the kit was so well organized with the pieces for the box all together neatly in a glassine envelope.  Such attention to detail!  

Your instructions were impeccable.  Your pictures were beautiful and a big help in putting everything together. Obviously I am very pleased. And I will be ordering again if you have future kits.    Thank you so much,
Deborah M

Today I finally got around to doing the last Card Buffet.  I LOVED the 
fun fold card this time.  It is just too cool! Thanks for doing the Buffet.  Your ideas are so good and your printed directions are out of this world.  I know from experience that teaching little people makes you really, really good at specific directions.  You 
go, Girl!

I haven’t had much time to craft lately but I did these in a jiffy and they are sooo cute. Thank you for offering this for us!

*Please note… I can only accept a limited number of orders each month. I may reach my limit before the deadline. I will send out PayPal invoices on or before Dec. 5th. You will receive an email when your kit is shipped (on or before Dec. 10). It will include an attachment with the project samples, supplies, and directions. You can substitute different stamps and sentiments using what you have or just copy my samples. The choice is up to you!

Have a wonderful day!

Thanksgiving Favors

Happy Thanksgiving! I am thankful for you and appreciate that you take the time to stop by!  I love to create and share with you! I enjoy making 3D projects and always love to have little table favors for family and friends for holidays and other special occasions. I made these for my Thanksgiving  table favors this year.

Stampin Up Pillow Boxes and Painted Harvest table favor idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Stampin’ Up! Pillow Boxes are the perfect size for gift cards, small gifts, notes, candy treats, and favors! They are so versatile for year round use! You get 10 boxes for just $5 (which doesn’t break the bank)! Every year I’ve filled table favors with my Blessings Mix (*see recipe below) but I thought I would change it up this year and use an M&M poem I found.  My daughter is a math major and I know she will appreciate one of the verses on this one.

Sending Positive Thoughts with Happiness Surrounds

Stampin Up Happiness Surrounds and Garden Impressions card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
The Happiness Surrounds stamp set has a great variety of sentiments! I am always looking for just the right sentiment for each card I make and “sending positive thoughts” is just what is needed for someone who is going through treatment or having a tough time. There are different occasions when thinking of you is just not quite enough and this one will do the job! *This stamp set is only available in November while supplies last. Check out the variety of sentiments and images.

I love the colors (So Saffron and Night of Navy) on this card! Stampin’ Up! really rocks color coordination.  It’s easy to chose the colors for the card layers from the prints in the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper Stack. The work is done for you!

Stampin Up Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
Garden Impressions 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper

I was inspired to do this fun ribbon embellishment from a card I saw on Pinterest.  I just added some adhesive where I wanted the ribbon to go and then adhered my stamped image and sentiment on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Cardstock cuts for this project:

  • So Saffron – 4-1/4″ x 11″ card base (scored at 5-1/2″), 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ panel, scrap to punch 1-3/8″ Circle, 1/4″ x 6″ strip (for envelope)
  • Night of Navy – 4″ x 5-1/4″ panel, 3″ x 3″ panel, Layering Circles Framelits
  • Whisper White –  3″ x 3″ to stamp and cut image with Layering Circles die, scrap to stamp and punch sentiment with 1 1/4″ punch, 4″ x 5-1/4″ panel (inside card)
  • Garden Impressions DSP – 2″ x 5-1/8″ panel, 2″ x 6″ (for envelope flap)

I mailed her this card so she would get it on her birthday.
Stampin Up Dandelion Wishes birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I used the new Highland Heather Designer Series Paper and cardstock because purple is her favorite color. I love the 6 x 6 DSP packs!  They are the perfect size to decorate a card and envelope.  I first cut a 2 x 6 piece to use on the flap of my envelope.  Then I cut the 4 x 6 piece to 4 x 5 1/4 to layer on the front of my card.  I used the leftover 3/4 x 4 piece on the inside of my card.  I love that there is no waste!

I stamped the image and sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I punched the sentiment using the Pretty Label Punch and layered it with a 1 3/4 Circle in Highland Heather. I popped the sentiment and layered dandelion image using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some Basic Rhinestone Jewels for a little bling!

I hope you enjoyed my card today. It’s quick & easy to create! I like that it’s clean & simple. You can recreate with any color and use different images and sentiments.  Have fun and do something creative today!

A Champion Birthday

Today is my husband’s birthday. He is a huge sports fan! His favorite hockey team is the Washington Capitals and he has waited his whole life for them to win the Stanley Cup Championship! Needless to say he was thrilled last June! For his birthday I bought him tickets to a Caps game and a commemorative bottle of bubbly. I always like to make my cards match the gift; however, I didn’t have any hockey related stamps. I played around and decided to make my own hockey sticks.
Stampin Up Perennial Birthday hockey card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I always loved origami as a kid and though this really doesn’t qualify (it’s held together with glue dots! LOL), it does the trick.  I used the Perennial Birthday stamp set for the simple sentiment and the team colors for my card.
Stampin Up Labels to Love birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
The inside sentiment is from Labels to Love. (The die is retired.)
