Stampin’ Up! Botanicals for You for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

My card for the hop today is from the Stampin’ Up! Botanicals for You stamp set. This set is only available for a short time during Sale-a- Bration.  I am loving it, because it coordinates with the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies and the Botanical Blooms stamp set!

Stampin' Up! Botanicals for You by Cardiology by Jari

I used the leaf die from the Botanical Builders Framelits to cut the one side of my Whisper White panel.  Then, I cut a piece of Mint Macron to fill in the negative space of the leaf, and attached it to the underside with some glue from my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  Next, I stamped the large sentiment with Basic Black Archival ink and began to add the flowers and leaves with Melon Mango, Crushed Curry and Mint Macaron inks.

Botanicals for You by Cardiology by JariThe Whisper White panel was then attached to the Melon Mambo card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I used the stamp set, Butterfly Basics, also from Stampin’ Up!, to add the two small butterflies to the front.  They were attached with Dimensionals.

To finish the card, I chose one of the other sentiments from Botanicals for You and stamped it in Basic Black archival ink.  The Crushed Curry butterfly is from Butterfly Basics, and the flower in Mint Macaron and Melon Mambo  from Botanicals for You from Stampin’ Up!

Stampin’ Up! Sky is the Limit for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

 I used the Stampin’ Up! the Sky is the Limit stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration catalog for my share for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop today.

Sky is the Limit Cardiology by Jari

And here is the sketch we are all working with:

Sketch Challenge for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop, January 21, 2016

First, I stamped the plane image from the Sky is the Limit with Versa Mark and heat embossed it with Basic Black Embossing Powder, let it dry and fussy cut it.  I did the same with the exhaust fume/sky writing image and set them aside.  Next, I punched out a Very Vanilla 2″ circle and stamped cloud shapes in Mint Macaron and framed it with a Basic Black circle that was just a bit larger.

Sky is the Limit Cardiology by Jarii chose another image from the  Sky is the Limit set for the sentiment, stamped it in Mint Macaron onto a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock, and used one of the dies from the Chalk Talk Framelits to cut it out. The card base is Basic Black. Before adding the Typeset Specialty DSP to it, I glued a strip of Mint Macaron cardstock near the bottom and wrapped a strand of Baker’s Twine around it twice. This layer was popped onto the card base with Dimensionals.

Sky is the Limit Cardiology by JariI glued the skywriting image to the cloud image with my fine tip glue pen and popped the whole piece onto the front with Dimensionals, The bi-plane and the sentiment were also popped onto the front with Dimensionals.

Sky is the Limit Cardiology by JariThe inside sentiment, also from the Stampin’ Up! Sky is the Limit stamp set, was stamped with Mint Macaron ink onto a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I used a different strip of the Typeset Specialty DSP for the bottom trim.

Don’t you just love this new FREE Sale-a-Bration stamp set?  If you love it as much as I do, you’d better hurry up and order Sky is the Limit, because it is only here for a limited time!  Only available till February 15, 2016.  It can be yours for any order of at least $50.  What a deal!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I have been on hiatus from stamping for a few weeks because we have been moving, and it has consumed all of my waking hours!  I hope to be back in full swing very soon.  Packing, unpacking and arranging takes WAY too much time-especially when it is not stamping time! 🙂
