Stampin’ Up! Succulents for FMS #281

I used the Succulents Framelits Dies from Stampin’ Up! to create my card to share with you today.  

Stampin' Up! Succulents Cardiology by Jari

 

My card design was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #281 this week.  

FMS 3281 Sketch Challenge

I also used the colors from the Fab Fri Challenge #108 even though I missed the deadline to enter!

 

 

I love how versatile these Succulents Dies are, and I never grow tired of working with them!  First, I die cut 3 sets of the pointy succulent dies from So Saffron and sponged the centers and edges with Peekaboo Peach ink.  Then, I used the trailing succulent die to cut out 2 pieces in Mint Macaron card stock.  

 

Stampin' Up! Succulents Cardiology by Jari

My sentiment is from the March 2017 Paper Pumpkin stamps, but if you do not have it, substitute any fairly small sentiment.  I used Early Expresso ink on a panel of Very Vanilla, then cut it with an oval Stitched Shapes Framelits die. The mat was die cut from an oval scalloped die from the Layering Ovals Framelits.  

The Succulents were adhered to the sentiment ovals with some glue and Dimensionals.  On the back of the oval panels, I adhered a couple of glue dots, then wound some Gold Metallic Thread around a few times, passing it over the glue dots to secure them.  Peekaboo Peach Enamel Shapes were added to the centers and one Calypso Coral heart Enamel Shape was added to the sentiment.  
Stampin' Up! Succulents Cardiology by JariI have layers of Very Vanilla and So Saffron card stock adhered to the Calypso Coral card base on the inside.  Three flowers were die cut using the smallest Botanical Builder Framelits flower die.and added to the right corner.  I adhered some So Saffron Enamel Shapes to the centers.  

A complete list of card stock cuts and Stampin’ Up! supplies to complete this card will be at the end of the post.

Stampin’ Up! Dragonflies for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I’m sharing some Dragonflies on my card today for our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  And here is our sketch:

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop Sketch Challenge March 30
Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Dreams Dragonflies by Cardiology by Jari

Our sketch this week gives us a starting point and guidelines for each sketch, so I really try to work with it as much as possible.  If you notice in the sketch it has 2 panels on the front, with one looking like a different color than the other.  I chose to use the same paper, but cut it so that it looks a little like it is two different panels of DSP.  I used one of the sheets from Falling In Love DSP and cut it so that the part of the paper with less design is on the top portion and the part with more design was on the bottom!  They were adhered to a panel of Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper.  Then, a length of Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon was adhered where the two panels met.  

Stampin' Up D!ragonfly Dreams Dragonflies by Cardiology by Jari

I recently saw a card on Pinterest with dragonflies created using Vellum card stock, so I decided to try it, too.  You can see the card HERE.  The stamper used Watercolor Pencils, and since I knew they were not orderable from Stampin’ Up! right now, I decided to try using my Blender pen and inks on the Vellum.  I cut a rectangle of the Vellum and began coloring with Blushing Bride, Sahara Sand and Sweet Sugarplum inks, blending the colors as I went. Once it was dry, I just die cut it with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlets Die.  

Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Dreams Dragonflies by Cardiology by Jari

My sentiment, from Dragonfly Dreams, was stamped in Sahara Sand on Very Vanilla, and die cut with an oval Stitched Shapes Framelit Die. Then, I adhered the sentiment oval to a Blushing Bride scalloped oval and attached a Lace Doily to the back side with glue. The dragonflies were attached with glue dots just under the heads.  I cut a length of Silver Metallic Thread and attached it to the back of the sentiment ovals with some Glue Dots, then popped that panel onto the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The Falling In Love Embellishment added the finishing touch to the front. 

Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Dreams Dragonflies by Cardiology by Jari

I pulled out the Happy Mother’s Day sentiment from the Oh So Succulent stamp set and stamped it in Sahara Sand ink. Then, I added a strip of the DSP left over from the front for the bottom of the panel.

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Banners Happy Birthday

Today I am sharing a birthday card I created using the Birthday Banners stamp set from Stampin’ Up! 

Stampin' Up! Birthday Banners Cardiology by Jari Panels of the Party Animal Designer Series Paper were adhered to a panel of Crushed Curry card stock.  At the point where the papers met, I added a layer of Crushed Curry card stock and wrapped a length of Emerald Envy 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon around it, securing it with small dabs of Liquid Glue and scotch tape on the back side.  

Stampin' Up! Birthday Banners Cardiology by Jari

 

I stamped the candle image from Birthday Banners in Emerald Envy and Crushed Curry on a panel of Whisper White and die cut it with a Layering Oval Framelit.  It was framed with an Emerald Envy scalloped oval.  The ovals were popped onto the front of the card with Dimensionals and I added a small bow created with Emerald Envy Baker’s Twine.  The sentiment and banner were stamped with stamps from Birthday Banners and then die cut with the corresponding banner die.  I popped it on with Dimensionals and added one Metallic Enamel Shape star.  

 

Stampin' Up! Birthday Banners and Bunch of Banners Framelits by Cardiology by Jari

For the inside, I stamped the double banner, from Birthday Banners in Crushed Curry ink and the sentiment in Pacific Point, then used the Bunch of Banners Thinlets die to cut it out. The candle was stamped onto the Whisper White inside panel and the banner adhered with Liquid Glue.

 

Stampin' Up! Birthday Banners birthday card by Cardiology by Jari

What’s a birthday card without a decorated envelope?  It only takes an extra minute or two and really makes it even more festive.  Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Cool Treats & Suite Sentiments

Today, I have paired the Stampin’ Up! Cool Treats Bundle with the Suite Sentiments stamp set, to create my card to share with you. These stamp sets are featured in the 2017 Occasions Catalog, and I’m loving them both.  I think they paired nicely, don’t you?

Stampin' Up! Cool Treats & Suite Sentiments Cardiology by Jari

 

I also think this Designer Series Paper, Tasty Treats, is so fun to work with.  The card base is Watermelon Wonder (remember, this color is retiring in June!) .  First, I cut a panel of the striped Tasty Treats DSP, and adhered it to a panel of Crumb Cake.  I cut the other Tasty Treats design on a diagonal and adhered it also to the Crumb Cake layer.  A length of Watermelon Wonder 5/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon (also retiring in June!) was then cut and adhered using Tear & Tape Adhesive.  This whole panel was then popped onto the Watermelon Wonder card stock base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

 

Stampin' Up! Cool Treats & Suite Sentiments Cardiology by Jari

Next, I stamped the sprinkles stamp from Cool Treats, in Crumb Cake ink, all over a Whisper White Stitched Shape Oval, and backed it with a Watermelon Wonder scalloped oval.  The Crumb Cake ice cream cone was die cut using 2 of the dies from the Frozen Treats Framelits.  I stamped the ice cream in Watermelon Wonder, stamping off onto a scrap piece of paper first.   Then, I stamped the sentiment from Suite Sentiments, full strength on top.  I had to fussy cut the ice cream because of the sentiment’s size.  Just Like You, also from Suite Sentiments, was stamped in Watermelon Wonder ink and I used one of the Tags & Labels Framelits Dies to cut it and its frame out.  The cherry was stamped and die cut, then glued on.  I cut a Lace Doily in half and adhered it to the ovals, then popped the art panel and the sentiment panel onto the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

 

Stampin' Up! Cool Treats & Suite Sentiments Cardiology by Jari

 

For the inside sentiment, I chose a stamp from Cool Treats and decided to add a chocolate topped popsicle to the bottom left corner.  So, how do you think Cool Treats & Suite Sentiments worked on this card?  

A complete list of stamping supplies and card stock cuts to create this card will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Basket Bunch for Easter

Happy Saturday to you!  I am using the Basket Bunch Bundle (again) for an Easter card to share with you today.  I guess you can tell that I really like this bundle.  I hope you do, too.  

 

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch for Easter by Cardiology by Jari

I started with a Soft Sky base and then created a layer of Whisper White and Soft Sky from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack as a back drop to my art panel.  Next, I stamped the grass from Basket Bunch across the bottom edge of a panel of Whisper white.  Then, I sponged some Soft Sky ink very lightly across the panel, making it a little darker where I was going to place my bunny.

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch for Easter by Cardiology by Jari

The eggs, chicks and bunny were then stamped with Memento Black ink and colored in using my Stampin’ Write Markers.  They were all die cut then with the Basket Builder Framelits Dies.  Once I decided where everything should go, I stamped the feet for the chicks and popped them, the bunny and the eggs onto the front with Dimensionals.  

 

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch for Easter by Cardiology by Jari

 

The cloud images are from the Weather Together Bundle and stamped in Soft Sky, then die cut out and popped on to the front with Dimensionals.  I stamped the Basket Bunch sentiment in Memento Black ink and used a banner die to cut it.  Two more banners were die cut in So Saffron and Soft Sky to use to outline the sentiment.  The art panel was adhered to a panel of So Saffron, then to the card base with more Dimensionals. 

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch for Easter by Cardiology by Jari

The inside has an Easter sentiment from the Basket Bunch stamp set and one more of the small eggs that I used on the front.  Enjoy!  

A complete list of supplies as well as card stock cuts will be listed at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! So Very Much and Avant Garden

I used the Sale-A-Bration So Very Much and Avant Garden stamp sets to create my card to share with you today.  I cannot believe we have only one week left for Sale-A-Bration, wow, the time has flown!  Many of the Free items have already sold out, make sure to check below.  Remember for every  $50 you spend, you get one free gift.  Don’t wait!

 

Stampin' Up! So Very Much and Avant Garden by Cardiology by Jari

This is a really quick and simple card to create.  First, I snailed a panel of Cupcakes & Carousels DSP to my Peekaboo Peach card stock base.  Then, I stamped Thank You in Early Expresso ink onto a Very Vanilla card stock panel.  I knew I wanted the flowers from Avant Garden to have depth, so I created a mask first.  That was done by stamping one flower onto a sticky note near the sticky end, and cutting it out with my Paper Snips.  Then I was ready to begin stamping on the Very Vanilla panel.

I stamped the So Saffron flower on the right side first, then covered it with the mask I had created.  I  cleaned my stamp and stamped the lower and upper flowers in Peekaboo Peach ink, making sure my mask was still where I originally placed it.  The opposite side was done in the same fashion with my sticky note mask.  All of the flower centers were stamped in Early Expresso ink.  The smaller sentiment was also stamped in Early Expresso onto a strip of So Saffron and die cut with a banner die.

A small length of Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon was notched at either end and bunched up with some Linen Thread to embellish the top, with some Peekaboo Peach Enamel Shapes added to the opposite side.  The art panel was framed with Peekaboo Peach and then popped onto the base with Dimensionals.  

For the inside of the card, I added more of the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP from the front to my Very Vanilla panel and left room to write a note.   Don’t let So Very Much and Avant Garden get away before you get your hands on them! 

A complete list of supplies and card stock cuts to re-create this card will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Basket Bunch for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

I used the Stampin’ Up! Basket Bunch Bundle to create a Happy Spring card to share with you today!

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Happy Spring by Cardiology by Jari

 

This week, we have a color challenge with Crushed Curry, Emerald Envy and Crumb Cake.  

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop Color Challenge

I started with a panel of Festive Birthday DSP that I adhered to a panel of Whisper White.  Then, I cut out two Stitched Shapes Squares, one in Crushed Curry and one in the same Festive Birthday DSP.  I dry fit them onto a panel of Whisper White so that I would know how much room I had for the rest of the pieces I had planned to add.

Next, I stamped the grass image from Basket Bunch in Emerald Envy onto a panel of Whisper White.  Happy Spring was then stamped in the upper right hand corner, also in Emerald Envy.  I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line the words up because they are single stamps from the Crazy About You stamp set.

 

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Happy Spring Card by Cardiology by Jari

 

My flowers, leaves, and bunnies were stamped next.  Then, I pulled out the Basket Builder Framelits Dies and cut them, the tall grass, and a basket out.  My Whisper White art panel was then adhered to a panel of Emerald Envy. I added the squares with liquid glue and adhered the tall grass to them with more glue.  Two of the flowers were colored a little with a blender pen and some Crushed Curry ink. The basket and white bunny were attached with Dimensionals, while the Crumb Cake bunnies were adhered with liquid glue. 

 

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Happy Spring by Cardiology by Jari

 

One of the Lace Doilies was adhered to the Festive Birthday DSP panel with liquid glue, then the art panel popped on with Dimensionals.  A small bow was attached to the basket handle with a glue dot, and some Enamel Shapes added to the flower centers.  The inside has a plain Whisper White panel with a little strip of the matching DSP attached to the bottom.  And there you have it, a Happy Spring card. I hope you are experiencing a little spring like weather wherever you are!  

A complete list of Stampin’ Up! Supplies used in creating my card as well as card stock cuts will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Cupcakes & Carousels Happy Birthday

I used the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper, Balloon Adventures, and the Stylized Birthday stamps to create the card I’m sharing with you today.  I also threw in some Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper, and hope you were able to snag it while it was still available for Sale-A-Bration.  But, if you did not get it, Bermuda Bay card stock will be perfectly fine to use in its place.

I’m also playing along with the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #91, hope you’ll check it out!

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #91

 

I started with a panel of Cupcakes & Carousels DSP and adhered it to a panel of So Saffron card stock.  Next, I cut another strip from Cupcakes & Carousels and adhered it to some Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper.  This whole strip was then adhered to the first panel. I cut a Lace Doily in half and centered it so that it would peek out under the sentiment panel and glued it down with some Liquid Glue.

My next step was to stamp the confetti image from Balloon Adventures onto a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  I did not stamp it full strength, though, it was stamped off once each time before I added it to the Very Vanilla.  Then, I stamped the Stylized Birthday Happy Birthday stamp in Bermuda Bay right over the confetti.  The sentiment panel was cut out with a Layering Squares Framelit and framed with a little larger scalloped Square in the Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper.

Next, I wrapped a length of Very Vanilla Thick Baker’s Twine around my large panel, added a short piece of Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim and tied a bow.  This panel was popped onto the Bermuda Bay card stock base with Dimensionals. Finally, I added one Rhinestone on top of the letter i, added some Dimensionals and popped the sentiment panel onto the front, too.  

Stampin' Up! Cupcakes & Carousels Birthday Cardiology by Jari

The inside of my card was stamped with the Balloon Adventures stamp set in Bermuda Bay on my Very Vanilla card stock.  A thin strip of the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP from the front was added to the bottom.  Quick and easy for the middle of the week!  Hope you like it!  

A complete list of supplies including card stock cuts will be at the end of my post.
