Jari Francis, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

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.

Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Sentiments for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Snowflake Sentiments Bundle to create the card I am sharing for our sketch challenge this week.  As I write this post, I am sitting at my son’s house 35 miles away from my home to use his electricity and internet!  We got a lot of wind damage during Irma and our whole little town is without power until Georgia Power gets to us!  That may be Saturday or Sunday, so those of you who regularly follow my blog posts, I will be back up and running hopefully early next week!  One other quick note, my pictures will look a little dark, too-I had to use the little bit of light coming through my window 🙂

 

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments bundle-Cardiology by Jari

 

Here is our sketch:

Happy Inkin' Thursday Snowflake

 

I started by die cutting either end of a panel of Foil Frenzy Specialty DSP with the Card Front Builder Thinlets Dies, then adhered it to a panel of Soft Sky with small dabs of glue from my Fine Tip Glue Pen.   

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I inked up one of the sentiments from Snowflake Sentiments with Versa Mark ink, sprinkled it with Silver Emboss Powder and heat embossed it until smooth and shiny on a panel of Whisper White.  I used an oval Stitched Shapes die to cut it out, then adhered it to a Soft Sky scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits dies.  

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I pleated a length of Soft Sky 3/8″ Classic Weave Ribbon, adhering it at every pleat with a small amount of Tear & Tape Adhesive, then notched each end with my Paper Snips.  It was adhered to the sentiment oval with Glue Dots, then the whole oval added to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I die cut two of the snowflakes from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlets dies, adhered them with liquid glue, added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel and adhered the whole thing to the sentiment oval with a glue dot.  Finally, the whole art panel was added to the Whisper White card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the inside, I added another snowflake and a strip of the Foil Frenzy Specialty DSP to the Whisper White panel, then adhered them to a panel of Soft Sky.

Halloween Fun for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Hop

Amy's Inkin' Krew Team Blog Hop

Ready for some Halloween fun?  Well, that is the theme of our blog hop this month!  Whether you’re just starting the hop here or have already hopped some, I hope you find some inspiration for your own cards today.  We’re so glad you joined us.  I used the Merry Cafe stamp set and the Spooky Night Designer Series paper to help create my Halloween card for today.  

Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe Halloween-Cardiology by Jari

I started by adhering a panel of Very Vanilla to a panel of Basic Black, then I added a narrow strip of the Spooky Night DSP with liquid glue.  This center panel was then adhered to panels of Spooky Night DSP and Pumpkin Pie with liquid glue.  

Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe Halloween-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I stamped the coffee cup image from Merry Cafe onto a patterned panel from Spooky Night DSP.  The coffee cup lid was stamped onto Pumpkin Pie, then both cup and lid were cut out with the Coffee Cups Framelits.  The spider web was stamped on the cup and then the sentiment onto a Very Vanilla panel.  Once the sentiment was die cut, I used my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to add dotted lines around the perimeter and adhered it to the cup.  The lid was adhered with small dots of liquid glue and the whole cup then added to the panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  


Stampin' Up! Coffee Cafe Halloween-Cardiology by Jari

I used my Patterned Pumpkins Thinlets Dies to cut out the open pumpkin and the pumpkin peeking out from the inside, then used my Paper Snips to cut out the other pumpkin, jack-o-lanterns, witch’s hat, cat and even the tiny little spider I added to the coffee cup! Once all of the pieces were cut out, I adhered them with liquid glue and dimensionals. Then, I added the little stars from the pumpkin I cut out that you see here on the inside.  

Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe-Cardiology by Jari

The inside sentiment is from Glamper Greetings and the hat courtesy of the Spooky Night DSP and my Paper Snips!

Stampin’ Up! Labels to Love Christmas Card

I used the Labels to Love stamp set to create a Christmas card to share with you today.  With this stamp set, you could create a Labels to Love Christmas, Halloween,Thanksgiving, or Valentine project!  And there is a punch to help you with cutting out the labels.  The Everyday Labels Punch can be bundled with the Merry Little Labels stamp set and can also be used with the Labels to Love stamps, too!

Stampin' Up! Labels to Love Christmas-Cardiology by Jari

 

I’m playing along with the “Just Add D” challenge over at Just Add Ink this week.  My “D” element is a doily.  

Just Add Ink #376

 

I started by adhering panels from Quilted Christmas DSP to a panel of Whisper White, then adhered a length of 3/8″ Silver Metallic Edge Thread with Tear & Tape adhesive to cover the meeting point.  A panel of Silver Foil was adhered to the Real Red card base with liquid glue, then the previous panel was popped onto the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! Labels to Love Christmas-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I adhered a Metallic Foil Doily white side up to the card front over the previously added ribbon with liquid glue. The label image was inked in VersaMark ink onto Real Red, White Emboss Powder sprinkled on it and then heat embossed until smooth and shiny.  I used the Everyday Labels Punch to cut it out.  then, I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the sentiment and repeated the embossing procedure. 

 

Stampin' Up! Labels to Love Christmas-Cardiology by Jari

A length of Mini Silver Sequin Trim was wound around and secured to the top of the doily with glue dots, and then the label popped on top with dimensionals.  A small bow was created with more of the Silver Metallic ribbon and added to the front with glue dots.  Finally, one star Metallic Enamel Shape was added to the top of one tree.

 

Stampin' Up! Labels to Love Christmas-Cardiology by Jari

For the inside sentiment, I inked up one more of the stamps from Labels to Love in Real Red and Garden Green, then stamped it onto a Whisper White panel edged with more of the Quilted Christmas DSP.

Stampin’ Up! At Home With You-Fall CAS Card

Today I am sharing a very CAS (clean and simple) card using the At Home With You Bundle, with a little help from some “friends”.  Because I wanted a fall themed card, I not only used the fall elements from At Home With You, but also the sentiment from Seasonal Lantern.  And, since fall is typically the time of year we tend to re-count our blessings, I got some help with a sentiment from the Count My Blessings stamp set.  

Stampin' Up! At Home With You-Cardiology by Jari

I was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #304, which is clean and simple.

FMS#304

My card started with a panel of Cajun Craze that was adhered to a panel of Very Vanilla with liquid glue.  Next, I adhered a panel of the beautiful Painted Autumn DSP to a narrow panel of Cajun Craze and then dry fit it to the card to determine where I’d like the sentiment stamped.  Using my Stamp-a-ma-jig, I stamped each word separately so that they would be stacked.  The DSP panel was then glued to the Very Vanilla panel.  

A double strand of Linen Thread was wound around the narrow panel and a bow tied, the back was secured with some tape.  

Stampin' Up! At Home With You-Cardiology by Jari

I stamped the floral image from At Home With You in Basic Black onto a panel of water color paper, then colored in each part using an Aqua Pen and the tops of my stamp pads.  Once dry, I cut it out with the corresponding die from the At Home Framelits.  The die cut piece was added with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and then the whole circle panel to the front with more dimensionals.  One heart shaped Cajun Craze enamel shape was added for some bling.  Finally, the whole art panel was adhered to the Very Vanilla card base with dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! At Home With You -Cardiology by Jari

I kept to the CAS look for the inside, adding more of the DSP used on the front to the bottom of my Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the sentiment from Count My Blessings in Cajun Craze, then glued the panel to the Very Vanilla base.  

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

Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Sentiments Bundle

I used the Snowflake Sentiments Bundle to create the card I am sharing with you today.  I know, I just used this set, but it is quickly becoming a favorite of mine!

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

I was inspired by the sketch over at Paper Craft Crew this week

Snowflake Sentiments Bundle for PCC#258

I started by embossing a Real Red panel with the Oh My Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, then adhered a length of Basic Black Shimmer Ribbon to it with Tear & Tape Adhesive.  Next, I adhered panels of Garden Green and   Christmas Around the World DSP to a mat of Basic Black card stock.  I die cut the long Silver banner with a die from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlets Dies and adhered it to the center with tiny dots of my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  

The center panel was adhered to the Real Red panel with liquid glue and then to the Basic Black card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

While at my Big Shot, I also die cut the swirls and snowflakes from Silver Foil using more dies from the Snowflake Sentiments Bundle.  Remember you save 10% when you bundle!  The sentiment is also from the stamp set and was inked with VersaMark ink, sprinkled with White Emboss Powder and heat embossed on Basic Black.  A Stitched Shapes circle die was used to cut out the sentiment, then a scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Framelits was cut from Silver Foil to frame it.  

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

 

A length of Silver Thread was wound around and secured to the back of the sentiment circle with Glue Dots.  Then I adhered the Silver Foil swirly shapes with Glue Dots and popped the whole sentiment panel onto the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The two die cut snowflakes were glued with a small dab from my Fine Tip Glue Pen and some Rhinestone Basic Jewels added for the finishing touch.  

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

For the inside, I chose more of the plaid DSP for the bottom of the Whisper White panel, layering it onto a panel of Real Red and finally onto the Basic Black card base with liquid glue. 

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

Stampin’ Up! Colorful Fall for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, ready for fall?  Our colorful color challenge this week is perfect for creating fall cards!

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Colorful Seasons stamp set bundle to create the card  I am sharing today:

Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

I started by dry embossing a panel of Very Vanilla card stock with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF, then adhered it to a panel of Early Expresso card stock.  Next, I used my Stamping Sponges and sponged Garden Green and Crushed Curry onto a panel of Very Vanilla.  Then, I stamped the leaf image from Colorful Seasons in VersaMark ink onto the sponged piece, added Copper Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  The leaves were die cut using the Seasonal Layers Thinlets.  

Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

A length of 1/4′ Copper Trim was wrapped around the embossed panel and a bow was made with Linen Thread.  I frizzed the ends of the Copper Trim and used a glue dot to secure it to the front. The top and bottom leaves were popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the center one was adhered with glue.  The sentiment was stamped in Early Expresso ink, then cut out with a banner die from Bunch of Banners Framelits.  I die cut an extra banner in Crushed Curry and adhered it to either end, then popped it onto the center of the card with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally, the art panel was adhered to the Crushed Curry base and three Glitter Enamel Dots added for some bling.

Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons-Cardiology by Jari

The small leaf image was inked in Garden Green, then stamped off twice onto scrap paper.  I used a corner of my Crushed Curry ink pad and rolled the stamp over it and then stamped it onto the Very Vanilla panel.  It almost looks real, doesn’t it?

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

Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Sentiments Bundle

I used the new Snowflakes Sentiments Bundle to create a card to share with you today. It’s never too early to begin your Christmas cards, just one more thing to mark off your long list of things to be completed in time!


Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments Bundle-Cardiology by Jairi

My sketch was inspired by the As You See It Challenge #157

As You See It Challenge #157

When I saw the dies in the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlets set, I knew I had to have this bundle.  Remember to bundle and save 10%!  I will link a video created by Stampin’ Up! at the end of my post so that you can see more of this fabulous set.  

I started with a panel of Whisper White and adhered a little smaller panel of Merry Music Specialty DSP to it with liquid glue.  Next, I stamped the sentiment from Snowflake Sentiments in VersaMark ink onto a panel of Basic Black, sprinkled it with Silver Emboss Powder and heat embossed it until smooth and  shiny.  Once cooled, I adhered a panel of Silver Foil to the sentiment panel and wrapped it with 1/8″ Silver Ribbon and tied a bow.

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I die cut two of the Swirly Snowflake dies from Silver Foil, cut them down some with my Paper Snips and adhered them to the back of the sentiment panel with liquid glue.  Once the glue was dry, I added some Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the card front.  I die cut two snowflakes, adhered them in the center with my Fine Tip Glue Pen, added a half of a Mini Dimensional and popped it onto the sentiment panel.  

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments-Cardiology by Jari

One Rhinestone Basic Jewel was added to the center of the single snowflake and three others were added to the DSP. Finally, the whole art panel was adhered to the Basic Black card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Snowflake sentiments Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

The inside sentiment was stamped in VersaMark ink and sprinkled with Silver Emboss Powder and heat embossed onto a panel of Whisper White.  I added a strip of the same DSP with a Silver Foil mat to the bottom of the panel and then adhered it to the card base.  One more snowflake was created from the two snowflake dies from the bundle and adhered with glue.  One Rhinestone was then added to the center and I was finished!  

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

Stampin’ Up! Merry Cafe for Fall

I used the Merry Cafe stamp set to create a fun fall card to share with you for today.  This set coordinates with the Coffee Cups Framelits Dies, don’t you just love that?  I also like the fact that Merry Cafe covers fall, Halloween, Christmas and even Valentine’s Day.  

Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe-Cardiology by Jari

I stamped the small leaf image from Colorful Seasons in Cajun Craze and Tangerine Tango onto a panel of Very Vanilla, then adhered it to a panel of Soft Sky.  Next, I wrapped some Linen Thread around the DSP panel and tied a bow, incorporating the Copper Foil leaf cut out from the Seasonal Layers Framelits Dies.  

Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe-Cardiology by Jari

The DSP panel was then adhered to the front of the card and I was ready for the Merry Cafe set.  I stamped the coffee cup image onto more of the Painted Autumn DSP, and the lid onto Soft Sky.  Both were die cut using the Coffee Cups Framelits Dies.  Next, I stamped the sentiment in Tangerine Tango onto Very Vanilla.  I used Soft Sky for the band, but cut it in half with my Paper Snips so that it would peek out around the sentiment.  The lid was adhered with a thin strip of liquid glue, then the whole cup was added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe-Cardiology by Jari

Finally, I popped the whole art panel onto the Tangerine Tango card base with dimensionals, and added some enamel shapes to finish off the front.  For the inside, I added a narrow strip of the same DSP as I used on the coffee cup to the bottom of the Very Vanilla panel.  

Merry Cafe is definitely a must from the Holiday catalog!  I hope you’re thinking of adding it to your wish list!

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