A Gift Idea for Mother’s Day

Mother’s day is a perfect time to recognize all the wonderful moms in your life! When my daughter was little I was new in the community and joined a moms playgroup to meet people. Those wonderful women became “my village” from potty training to empty nests! Their friendship is a blessing! Today’s project would be a lovely gift for any of the moms in your life!

I have been on a roll making these oyster shell trinket holders. There are so many uses for these! (*If you missed my previous posts featuring these shells, you can click HERE or HERE.)

I took advantage of the CLEARANCE SALE and purchased the gold boxes which are the perfect size for these shells. The inspiration for the box came from a card design (found on page 28) in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

I cut the pansy and leaves from the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper using the Pansy Dies. The sentiment is from the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set (*one of my retiring favorites!!!). I love how the box coordinates with the shell! The bumblebee trinket is the perfect finishing touch! You can view the complete list of products used below.

Here’s a SPECIAL OFFER FOR MOTHER’S DAY…. You can purchase the pansy gift box and shell for $20 (includes shipping & handling)! These shells are the latest craze for decor and gifts.  I have seen them in boutiques and gift shops priced much higher. If you want/need a Mother’s Day gift for a friend, sister, aunt, mom, grandma…I’ve got you covered. This one of a kind gift comes ready to give wrapped in the pansy box. You can even have it shipped directly to the recipient! I have a limited number ready to ship immediately. To order, email me (j.stark@goeaston.net) with “Mother’s Day Gift” in the subject. I accept Paypal or check.

In Color Thank You Cards with a Sneak Peek at Tea Boutique

I enjoy making and sending thank you cards and gifts to my customers.  (Truth be told I am usually last minute getting these done.) I am having so much fun creating with the new In Colors! These bright cheery colors coordinate with the new 6×6 Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper (available May 3rd). Here’s today’s cards.
Stampin' Up! Tea Boutique In Color Thank you card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
This is a quick & easy project to create. I love how it showcases the pretty patterned paper! I hope you’ll get out your favorite designer series paper and give this card design a try!

PROJECT MEASUREMENTS:

  • Card Base – Basic White Note Card
  • Cardstock layer – 3 1/2 x 5
  • Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper – 3×3
  • Basic White & In Color cardstock – 1 1/2 x 3 1/2 to cut die

Here’s a closer look at each of the cards:

*HERE’S A QUICK TIP – I cut my DSP so I could get two cards and envelopes from each 6×6 sheet. First I cut my 6×6 piece in half to get 2 – 3 x 6 pieces. Then I cut one 3×6 piece in half to get 2 -3×3 card fronts. I cut the other 3×6 piece in half to get 2- 1 1/2 x 6 pieces for the envelope.  I added a 1/4″ strip of cardstock to the envelope first then added the DSP 1/4″ below that and trimmed to fit. No waste and a fun coordinated look!

Do you remember Highlights magazine? I loved doing the “Spot the Difference” page as a kid! Can you spot the difference in one of my cards today?  Leave a comment below and let me know what you think of the new In Colors and Tea Boutique DSP! (Be sure to check back to see my coordinating customer gifts for this month!)

I love reading your comments! Congratulations to Pat V….winner of the “Just Saying Hello” card featured HERE. Email me your address and I will put your card in the mail.

Just Saying Hello with the 2022-2024 In Colors

Yesterday I shared two cards I made showcasing the new 2022-2024 In Colors. Today I have all the details and a simple tip how to make them! Here’s a look at the cards.
Stampin' Up! 2022-2024 In Color card idea for any occasion - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
These cards were inspired by a card I received from my friend, Susan.  Here’s her card.
visit juststampin.com for inspiration and more - Jeanie Stark Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator
I really like how Susan used different strips of paper to create a fun card. I also love how she stamped images and another sentiment using Versamark to add a subtle message without taking away from the main sentiment. Like Susan, I heat embossed my main sentiment and then added an additional sentiment and stamped images on some of the paper strips. Here’s a closer look at my cards.

There’s so many possibilities with this card design. You can use cardstock, Designer Series papers, or a combination of each. Here’s the details if you would like to create this card:

  • Basic White card base: 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • Cut cardstock (or DSP) into 2 1/2″ strips.
  • Choose sentiment to heat emboss for main sentiment. Cut to length. *Mine is 2 1/2 x 2.
  • Cut additional strips into 1/4″, 1/2″, 3/4″ strips. *All strips are x 2 1/2.
  • TIP: Cut a strip of cardstock 1 1/2″ wide and line up on side of card base and adhere with washi tape (or removable tape).  *This will make it easy to add strips for a straight margin.
    How to line up strips for a straight margin - Jeanie Stark - Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator - visit juststampin.com for handmade cards and more!
  • Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to add strips. Stamp additional images or sentiments on some of the strips using Versamark.
  • Remove cardstock margin and embellish with punched or die cut pieces. *I stamp the flowers and leaves in Versamark and punched out with the Flowers & Leaves Punch. I adhered these to the card with Mini Glue Dots.
  • Decorate envelope to coordinate.
