Stampin’ Up! Sealed With Love Valentine Gift Bags

I used several different stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to create my Valentine Gift Bags for today.  These bags were actually used at my Open House for my guests to take their goodies home in, you may remember this picture from my post. 

I forgot to show you the close ups and more information on how to make them in case you’d like to make some of your own Valentine Gift Bags

 

Valentine Gift Bags

 

For these two bags, I used the Sealed With Love Bundle, using Real Red and Soft Sky card stock for my heart cut outs and some Sending Love Designer Series Paper for the scalloped die cut.  I fussy cut out a heart on the bag on the right, from one of the Sending Love DSP pages.  I also added a pretty Lace Doily to the bag on the left.  Both bags are stamped with Real Red ink. 

 

Valentine Gift Bags

 

For these two bags, I pulled out my Bloomin’ Heart Thinlets and my Sunshine Wishes Thinlets and some Gold Glimmer Paper.  I used the sentiment and lips stamp from Sealed With Love and stamped them in Real Red.  For the bag on the left, I die cut the open heart from Love Notes Framelits and threaded the arrow, also from the Love Note Framelite, through it.  The large Gold Glimmer heart was die cut with one of the heart dies from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits and the small hearts were from one of the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets Dies.  

 

Valentine Treat Bag

 

 

For this bag, I die cut another Bloomin’ Heart in Real Red and added some Rhinestones to the flower centers.  Then, I made a little envelope with a Sending Love Glassine Sheet and the Love Notes Framelits Die.  The small note on the inside was stamped on Whisper White and then die cut.  The small heart on the envelope flap was stamped with a stamp from Sealed With Love and also die cut.  

I hope you enjoyed my Valentine Treat Bags today!  I know I used a lot of different products, but you can see that there are many stamps and die sets that will work for this type of bag!  I purchased the handled bags at Hobby Lobby.

Bloomin’ Love for Mother’s Day Card

My share for today is a Mother’s Day card designed with Bloomin’ Love from Stampin’ Up!  I also had help from the April Paper Pumpkin stamp sets for my sentiments.

 

Bloomin' Love Mother's Day card by Card-iology by Jari

I used the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  You will want to head over there and see all of the other great entries in this week’s challenge.

FMS Final 233-001

I am also playing along with the new TGIF Challenge 52.  It is a Mother’s Day card challenge. They are also giving away a free stamp set, so head over there and check it out and play along!

TGIF MAY 2016 New Challenges-002

I really had not realized how soon Mother’s Day is so I am glad I got the head’s up!  It will be here and gone very soon.

Bloomin' Love

The Blushing Bride panel is dry embossed with the Happy Heart TIEF and adhered to the Crumb Cake card base.  A panel of Love Blossoms DSP was adhered to a panel of Crumb Cake and then glued to the front.  Next, I stamped the sentiment from one of the stamp sets from the April Paper Pumpkin in Crumb Cake onto Whisper White.   Then, colored in the leaves and flowers with my Stampin’ Write markers. This is framed in Blushing Bride and Crumb Cake-both just a little larger than the art piece.Bloomin' Love

I stamped the heart image from Bloomin’ Love in Crumb cake onto Whisper White and fussy cut the heart shape. I stamped 3 flowers from Bloomin’ Love and used the Bloomin’ Hearts Thinlets Dies to cut them out.  ***These Thinlets are sold as a bundle with the Bloomin’ Love stamp set now, but will be sold separately in the upcoming 2016-2017 catalog, so order yours now!

I used some Pearl Basic jewels for the flower centers and attached them with glue dots.  The sentiment and the heart image are attached to the card front with dimensionals to give it some depth.

 

Bloomin' Love

For the inside I stamped a flower image from Bloomin’ Love in Blushing Bride, and for the sentiment, I chose another stamp from one of the April Paper Pumpkin stamps and used Crumb Cake ink.

I decided to fancy up the envelope(see above) with a liner of the same Love Blossoms DSP using the Envelope Liners Framelets (these are retiring!  boo-hoo)

Stampin’ Up! One Big Meaning Note Cards & Gift Box

Today’s share is a set of 5 note cards using One Big Meaning from Stampin Up! and a gift box to package them.  I used the Stampin’ Up! Whisper White note cards and envelopes.  Each pack has 20 cards and envelopes ready to decorate as you wish.  Easy peasy!

 

Stampin' Up! One Big Meaning note cards

 

The directions for my gift box can be found here.  Because I did not have the velcro dots that Amy used in her tutorial, I simply used some Whisper White 5/8″ satin ribbon to tie a bow around the box. I do love the idea of using the self-adhesive velcro dots, though!  Will have to look for some to use for my next set of cards.

Gift Card Box by Card-iology by Jari

 

The box is made from Blushing Bride card stock and I decorated the front with the small flower images from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set.

I tend to fall in love with so many of the Designer Series Papers and have a hard time using all of the pages before new designs and colors are introduced—-so I figured out a way to use up some of my stash.  Make sets of note cards and line the envelopes with matching papers!  These note cards make wonderful teacher gifts, hostess gifts, graduation gifts, or _________( you fill in the blank 🙂 )  

Love Blossoms DSP is what I chose for this gift set.  You will notice that each card features the sentiments from One Big Meaning, but two cards have some of the smaller floral images from Bloomin’ Love stamped on them.

Stampin’ Up! Friendly Wishes for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

I chose the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Wishes stamp set today for my share for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  Since Valentine’s Day is coming very soon, I decided I needed to get busy…

Friendly Wishes by Cardiology by Jari

 

Here is the sketch used for today’s  challenge:

12308488_1305621159464456_8777837047337384327_n

If you are in need of a quick and easy card, this one fills the bill.  For the background, I layered a panel of Love Blossoms DSP onto a little larger panel of Garden Green, then attached that to the Blushing Bride card base with multipurpose liquid glue.

Friendly Wishes by Cardiology by Jari

The sentiment, from Stampin’ Up! Friendly Wishes, was stamped in Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride, and Rose Red onto a panel of Whisper White using my Stamp-a-ma-jig.  Boy is that a life saver!  I framed the sentiment panel with a panel of Rose Red using Multipurpose Liquid glue to attach them, then popped it onto the base with Dimensionals.

Friendly Wishes by Cardiology by JariThe banner, from the new Bloomin’ Love stamp set, was stamped in Garden Green, and cut out using the banner die from the wonderful new Large Numbers Framelits Dies.  In case you did not realize it, this can be bundled with the Number of Years stamp set for a great $avings deal and will earn you Free items from the Sale-a-Bration sale going on right now at Stampin’ Up! I stamped Be Mine, also from the Bloomin’ Love stamp set, in Rose Red ink. I decided I needed a little bling, so I punched out a small heart of Blushing Bride glimmer paper using my Itty Bitty heart Accents punch.  It and the banner are popped onto the front with Dimensionals.

Friendly Wishes by Cardiology by JariFor the inside, I chose another sentiment from Bloomin’ Love, which I stamped in Rose Red onto a panel of Whisper White, then I added two more hearts and a bottom border with a left over strip of the DSP I used on the front.

And here is a look at the decorated envelope and one of the inside flap of the envelope:

Stampin’ Up! Bloomin’ Love for the Happy Stampers Team Hop

Today’s Happy Stampers Team Blog hop features a color challenge for the last day of 2015:

12096205_1282833705076535_3973718640053185818_n

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Bloomin’ Love stamp set and the coordinating Bloomin’ Heart Thinlet Dies available on January 5th,  to create my card for today.

Bloomin' Love Card-iology by JariDon’t you just love the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper?  It really adds some pizzaz to your projects!   The Bloomin’ Heart Thinlet Die (Heart) was my starting point.  After the heart, I used the two flower dies included in the set to create my Real Red and Whisper White flowers.

Bloomin' Love Card-iology by JariBefore die-cutting the flowers, I stamped Real Red ink onto the Real Red and Whisper White cardstocks using the flower stamps in the Bloomin’ Love stamp set.  Next, I stamped the banner from the set in Soft Suede and then stamped the sentiment, also from Bloomin’ Love, in Real Red ink.  The banner coordinates with the new Large Numbers Framelets Dies also available January 5th!

Bloomin' Love Card-iology by JariI added some small Pearl Basic Jewels to the center of the flowers and then punched 5 small hearts with my heart punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack in more of the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper. Two of those hearts went on the outside, and the other three went inside.

Bloomin' Love Card-iology by Jari

The inside sentiment is also from Bloomin’ Love, and is stamped in Real Red onto Whisper White.  I know you are going to add this new bundle to your wish list for January 5th! The Bloomin’ Love stamp set and Bloomin’ Heart Thinlet Dies come in a bundle so that you can save 15%.  Isn’t that wonderful?!!  You will also want to check out the new Big Shot Die Brush-you can easily remove your die cut pieces with this great new tool.
