Stampin’ Up! Night in Bethlehem

I used the Stampin’ Up! Night in Bethlehem Bundle to create the card I am sharing for today.  

Stampin' Up! Night in Bethlehem-Cardiology by Jari

My Christmas card came together so quickly with these awesome Bethlehem Edgelits Dies!  I love the palm trees and the simulated village, don’t you?  This stamp set has beautiful sentiments, too.  Because I used the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper as my background, I did not add a sentiment to the front.  This sheet music works perfectly for a message, anyway.  The only stamping for the front was the shepherd image.  

Stampin' Up! Night in Bethlehem-Cardiology by Jari

There are two edgelits included in the Night in Bethlehem Bundle, and the background die was cut in Basic Black, the front die in Silver Foil.  

Stampin'Up! Night in Bethlehem-Cardiology by Jari

The star was die cut in Silver Foil and one Rhinestone Basic Jewel added to the center.

I stamped the large sentiment and Mary and Joseph in Basic Black Archival ink.  Mary, Joseph and the donkey were die cut with the dies and added with Liquid Glue.

A complete list of stamping supplies and card stock cuts are at the end of this post.

Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Sentiments Gift Box

I am sharing a Snowflake Sentiments Gift Box created with the Snowflakes Sentiments Bundle and the new Acetate Card Box found in the Holiday Catalog.  Every year, Stampin’ Up! provides the cutest pre-made boxes for us to decorate for gift giving, and this one is no exception!  If you don’t look carefully, it is easy to miss on page 13 of the Holiday Catalog.  They are designed for holding 5 standard cards and envelopes, but can also double as a gift box for anything your little heart desires.  

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments Gift Box-Cardiology by Jari

A couple of weeks ago, I created a card using the Snowflakes Sentiments Bundle and this same color scheme (see it HERE) so I decided to decorate my Acetate Box similarly.  Below is a side view when filled with cards and envelopes.

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments Gift Box-Cardiology by Jari

The Swirly Snowflakes Thinlets Dies are just so beautiful, don’t you think?  I cut two of the snowflake dies in Silver Foil, and two of the outline dies in Real Red, then adhered them with dots of Liquid Glue.  Because I positioned them horizontally on the Acetate Box, I had to trim the sides down some with my Paper Snips.  A narrow belly band was adhered to the snowflake cut outs with glue dots, and then the overlap in the back adhered with a few more Glue Dots.

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments Gift Box-Cardiology by Jari

The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark ink, sprinkled with White Emboss Powder and heat embossed, then die cut with an oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies. Another scalloped oval was cut from Garden Green, adhered to the sentiment and set aside.  I wrapped a strand of Basic Black Baker’s Twine around the belly band and box three times, made a looped bow and knotted it.  Then, the sentiment was popped onto the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

Stampin'n Up! Snowflake Sentiments Gift Box-Cardiology by Jari

Two small snowflakes were die cut from Silver Foil and adhered with a glue dot and a Rhinestone Basic Jewel adorns the center.  Finally, I cut two of the little tags found in the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlets Dies, one in white and one in plaid.  They were glued together and attached with a length of Silver Metallic Ribbon.  

Another adorable use of these Acetate Boxes is to fill them with candy.  Here is one I know you will love that was created by Amy Koenders, my upline.  

Well, what are you waiting for, order these Acetate Boxes and start making your own Snowflake Sentiments Gift Box today!  Starting October 1st, you can also get the Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper that I used for my card and belly band for FREE, when you buy 3 of the Designer Series Papers listed in the promotion below!

Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Christmas for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Christmas stamp set to create the card I am sharing for our blog hop today.  

Stampin' Up! Watercolor Christmas-Cardiology by Jari

 

Our sketch for this week:

Happy Inkin' Thursday Sketch

I started with a pattern from the Quilted Christmas DSP and adhered it to my Real Red card stock base.  Then, I created a banner with another pattern from the Quilted Christmas DSP and also adhered it to the center front of the card.  I cut a length of the pretty Quilted Christmas 1/4″ Ribbon, notched either end with Paper Snips and adhered it to the center of the banner with thin strips of Tear & Tape Adhesive.

Stampin' Up! Watercolor Christmas-Cardiology by Jari

 

Next, a Foil Snowflake was cut in half and adhered just above and below the ribbon with glue dots.  Don’t you just love the font of this sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Wishes stamp set?  It was stamped in Real Red and cut out with an oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies, then matted with a Real Red scalloped oval and a Garden Green regular oval shape.  The small Christmas tree is just one of three tree images from the set and stamped in Garden Green.

Stampin' Up! Watercolor Christmas-Cardiology by Jari

The inside sentiment was stamped in Real Red onto a Whisper White panel, a thin strip of coordinating DSP was adhered to the bottom of the panel and then both adhered to the card base with Liquid Glue.

A complete list of stamping supplies and card stock cuts are at the end of my post.

 

Now, on to see the beautiful creation that Kristi has for us today….

Stampin’ Up! Season to Sparkle Bundle

I used the Season to Sparkle Bundle to create the Christmas card I am sharing with you today.  

Stampin' Up! Season to Sparkle-Cardiology by Jari

I started with a Whisper White Thick card stock base, then adhered panels of Real Red and Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper with Liquid Glue.  

Stampin' Up! Season to Sparkle-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I used the beautiful Chandelier Thinlets Dies and Silver Foil to create the chandelier.  I stamped the holly and berries and used another die from the set to cut it out.  The ornaments were stamped with VersaMark ink, sprinkled with Silver Emboss Powder and heat embossed until smooth and shiny.  The coordinating die made it a snap to cut them out. 

Stampin' Up! Season to Sparkle-Cardiology by Jari

The chandelier and ornaments were adhered with several Stampin’ Dimensionals that had been trimmed to fit the narrow pieces.  A bow was created with Silver Metallic thread and Silver Mini Sequin Trim, then attached with Glue Dots.

My sentiment was stamped in Real Red, then a banner created with one of the Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies.  

Stampin' Up! Season to Sparkle-Cardiology by Jari

The inside sentiment is also from Season to Sparkle.  I added one more of the ornaments created earlier and stamped a bow just above it.  

This Season to Sparkle Bundle is another versatile set from the Holiday Catalog.  It has sentiments for Halloween, and Valentine’s Day as well.  What else can you envision this set creating?  

Card stock cuts and stamping supplies needed to create the card are at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Smitten Mittens Bundle

I’m sharing some fun cards created yesterday at our quarterly in person Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Meeting!  And, as the name says, I am smitten by this stamp set bundle.  So cute and fun to work with!  Thanks go out to our team leader, Amy Koenders, for designing the cards and supplying us with all of the products needed to create them.  

Stampin' Up! Smitten Mittens Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

The sentiment on the horizontal card is from the Hug in a Mug stamp set, and the vertical card’s sentiment is from the Hearts Come Home stamp set.  Aren’t these the cutest?  

Stampin' Up! Smitten Mittens Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

We used the Be Merry Designer Series Paper for this card, as well as Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler inks and paper.  The Cherry Cobbler 1/4″ Double Stitched Ribbon really sets it off, too.  

Stampin' Up! Smitten Mittens Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

Real Red and Garden Green were our go to colors for this one and we used the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to make the perfect back drop for the mittens!  Here are some shots of the team hard at work and having fun!

Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Lantern Bundle

I used the Seasonal Lantern Bundle from Stampin’ Up! to create the card I am sharing with you today.  Stampin’ Up! again created a very versatile bundle to use for fall, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas holiday celebrations.  I love being able to create several different cards with just one set, don’t you?  

Stampin' Up! Seasonal Lantern Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

 

The Lantern Builder Framelits Dies include some duplicates to allow you to cut out multiple pieces at once, also!

Stampin' Up! Seasonal Lantern-Cardiology by Jari

I paired some Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper with Old Olive, Real Red and Basic Black card stock for a back drop to the lantern oval.  My sentiment was stamped in VersaMark ink, sprinkled with Silver Emboss Powder and heat embossed to give it a little twinkle!

Stampin' Up! Seasonal Lantern-Cardiology by Jari

For the inside, I chose a sentiment from the Watercolor Christmas stamp set and heat embossed it with Silver Emboss powder, too.

Stampin' Up! Watercolor Christmas-Cardiology by Jari

There is minimal stamping, just mostly cutting your panels and adhering them to the card base and adding a bow.  

Stampin' Up! Watercolor Christmas-Cardiology by Jari

I used VersaMark ink and Gold Emboss Powder to keep with my gold and white theme for the sentiments.  The inside sentiment is from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set.

Halloween Labels to Love for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

We’re back with a color challenge this week, and it screams fall, doesn’t it?

Happy Inkin' Thursday Sketch Challenge Halloween Label

I used the Labels to Love stamp set to create a Halloween card for today.  As I have stated before, Labels to Love is perfect for a Halloween Label, Thanksgiving Label, Christmas Label, New Year’s Label or Valentine’s Label.  Whew! that’s a lot of holidays covered with one stamp set!

Stampin' Up! Halloween Label-Cardiology by Jari

I also pulled out the Patterned Pumpkin Thinlets Dies and the Spooky Night Designer Series paper to add to my Halloween label to make it more festive and get in all of the colors for this week.  Here is a little closer look:

I kept it pretty simple for the inside of the card using more of the DSP for the small pumpkin and the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlets for the Basic Black Jack-o-Lantern.

  • Stamp Halloween sentiment twice; once in Basic Black, once in Pumpkin Pie, cut out the center words with Paper Snips and glue to the Basic Black label over the same words stamped in Basic Black; punch out with the Everyday Label Punch
  • Cut one Stitched Shapes oval in Pumpkin Pie, cut one scalloped oval in Very Vanilla and adhere the two with liquid glue.
  • Die cut the large pumpkin and smaller one with stars from the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlets.  Make a bow with Basic Black Baker’s Twine and secure it to the top of the large pumpkin, add  a small amount of liquid glue to the pumpkin and adhere to the ovals.  
  • Adhere the Halloween Label to the ovals with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then the ovals to the card front with more Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Thanks for joining us today!  I am back home in Georgia with all of my stamping supplies, Yippee!  So, I hope to see you tomorrow with more stamping inspiration.  

Cardiology by Jari Irmageddon Update!

Hi Stampers!  I just wanted to give an update of my situation.  My last post was on the 14th, for our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop and I told you about my power outage.  I had hoped to be back to stamping and posting cards by tomorrow, but it will still be a few days before I am up and running again.  Please don’t give up on me! 

We regained power at my home in Georgia on Friday night.  Yippee!  But, on last Thursday morning, I drove to Florida to pick up my Mother who still has no power.  She lives in a mobile home park and the temperatures outside are well over 90 degrees, leaving her home feeling like an oven!  Lots of trees are still down in her section so no word on how long it will take to regain power there.  

Fortunately, I have a home in Florida that did not lose power, so we are here for the duration.  I did not bring any of my stamping supplies, so I am just about to go crazy with stamping withdrawal!  

We certainly have a lot to be thankful for as many neighborhoods near me are still under water and the power is still out.  The grocery shelves are almost bare, but I live near a Wal-Mart Distribution Center and the lines of semi trucks in and out is amazingly long.  So, there is an end in sight for some.  

Thanks for being loyal followers, I will keep you posted and hopefully be back home soon to all my stamping supplies.
