Stampin’ Up! Merry Mistletoe Christmas

I used the Merry Mistletoe stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create the Christmas card I am sharing with you today. 

Stampin' Up! Merry Mistletoe-Cardiology by Jari

Merry Mistletoe is a new stamp set this year, but is found in the Annual Catalog.  I by-passed it when the catalog came out last spring because I was not ready to think about Christmas cards!  But, it is really a great set, and the Be Merry DSP is really a favorite of mine, too.  The DSP is also included in the buy three get one free sale going on right now until the end of this month.  Don’t miss out on this great sale!  

The reindeer were stamped in Crumb Cake with the help of my Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement.  I stamped the middle one first, then the others.  Next, the sentiment was stamped in Cherry Cobbler right over the center reindeer.  A panel of the Be Merry DSP was adhered to a panel of Whisper White, then a length of Garden Green 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon was adhered to the center with Tear & Tape Adhesive.  The bow was then made and adhered with a Glue Dot.  

Stampin' Up! Merry Mistletoe-Cardiology by Jari

I left the inside panel plain with just a strip of the Be Merry DSP adhered to the bottom.

For fun, I added a Cherry Cobbler Enamel Shape for a nose, one Metallic Enamel star, and stamped another reindeer on the envelope front.  

This card is a snap to create, and I think you will also love the Merry Mistletoe set, too!

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

Stampin’ Up! Color Me Happy & Stampin’ Blends

I used the newly released (right now, just for demonstrators) Color Me Happy stamp set and the Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers to create my card for today.  Both items will be available soon for customers!  I will give you the details as soon as they are made available to me!  

Stampin' Up! Color Me Happy-Cardiology by Jari

Here is a look at the stamp set with lots of fun images to color.   

Stampin' Up! Color Me Happy

I started by stamping the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then began to color the shadow part in Night of Navy, using the darker of the two markers in the set.  Next, I colored in the rest of the letters with the lightest Old Olive markers and punched one end with my Banner Triple Punch. A second banner was cut from Night of Navy card stock for a mat for the sentiment banner.  The flower image from Color Me Happy was also stamped first in Memento ink, then I began with the darker shade of the two Daffodil Delight markers around the flower center.  The lighter shade was then blended to fill in the whole space.  

Stampin' Up! Color Me Happy-Cardiology by Jari I adhered the banners with some liquid glue, then stapled a small length of the Night of Navy 1/2″ Gingham Ribbon to the corner.  The flower was fussy cut with my Paper Snips.  I added a couple of leaves that were die cut from the Flourish Thinlets to the back with Glue Dots, then popped it onto the banner with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  One Rhinestone Basic Jewel was then added to the flower center.  

Stampin' Up! Color Me Happy-Cardiology by Jari

The card base is Night of Navy, with a panel of Old Olive adhered over it with liquid glue.  The next layer is Whisper White and Merry Little Christmas DSP adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The last step was to pop the banner onto the front with more dimensionals.  For the inside, I finished it with a panel of Whisper White with a strip of the Merry Little Christmas DSP added to the bottom, leaving room for a note.  

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

Stampin’ Up! Smitten Mittens Bundle

I used the Smitten Mittens Bundle to create the card I am sharing with you today.  This Christmas card is another very quick and simple one to put together.

Stampin' Up! Smitten Mittens Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

I started with the Be Merry Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a panel of Cherry Cobbler with liquid glue.  Next, I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler in the center of a panel of Vellum card stock and let it dry while I worked on the other elements.

Stampin' Up! Smitten Mittens Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

Two mittens were stamped in Garden Green onto Whisper White Thick card stock, then die cut from the Many Mittens Framelits dies.  Next, I stamped and die cut two of the pretty snowflake images from the Smitten Mittens stamp set bundle.  One snowflake was stamped in Garden Green ink, the other in Cherry Cobbler ink, and each was adorned with one Rhinestone Basic Jewel.  The Vellum strip was adhered with a dot of glue where I knew the mittens would be placed, then I wrapped a length of Whisper White Baker’s Twine around the whole panel three times and tied a bow.  The mittens and the snowflake were added with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the art panel was adhered to the Garden Green card base with more dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! Smitten Mittens Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

The Whisper White panel on the inside was stamped with Garden Green for the sentiment and Cherry Cobbler for the row of hearts on the bottom.  The Cherry Cobbler snowflake was adhered with liquid glue and then the panel was adhered to the card base with more glue.

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

Stampin’ Up! Good Tidings for Christmas

I used the Good Tidings stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create the Christmas card I am sharing with you today.  

Stampin' Up! Good Tidings-Cardiology by Jari

The sketch inspiration is from the challenge over at Just Add Ink this week

Just Add Ink #380

Good Tidings is a two step stamp set, and all of the images except the sentiments are meant to be stamped twice.  Depending on your preference, you can either stamp the more solid image darker or stamp it off on scrap paper, then add the second image on top of it.   And, depending on your preference, you may stamp that second image lighter or darker.  I played around a little with each  set of leaves and berries until I got the coloring I wanted.  If you look carefully on the sheet the stamps come on, it is marked with numbers and letters. (1a, 1b, 1c, 1d, etc.)

Stampin' Up! Good Tidings-Cardiology by Jari

I used Old Olive on the holly leaves, Cherry Cobbler on the berries, and Early Expresso on the stem.  Since I was going to fussy cut out the holly, I stamped those images on Whisper White Thick card stock.  

Stampin' Up Good Tidings-Cardiology by Jari

I kept the inside very simple, with just a strip of the same Merry Little Christmas DSP adhered to the side of my Whisper White panel.  The sentiment is also from the Good Tidings stamp set.  

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

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Around the World

I created a really quick and easy card for today using the Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper.  And, Christmas Around the World DSP is on the list of papers for the Buy 3 Get 1 Free Sale going on right now through October 31st, at Stampin’ Up!  Yippee!

Stampin' Up! Christmas Around the World-Cardiology by Jari

There is no stamping required with this sentiment, just some fussy cutting with your Paper Snips!  Isn’t that cool?  Check out the pattern, there are all sorts of messages on it just waiting to be added to your cards or projects. First,  I dry embossed a panel of Real Red with the Brick Wall TIEF (textured impressions embossing folder), then adhered two coordinating panels from the Christmas Around the World DSP to it with Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Around the World-Cardiology by Jari

I cut a length of Burlap Ribbon, folded it over, stapled it together, then added some Tear & Tape Adhesive and adhered it to the front of the embossed panel.  Next, I cut out a banner from Real Red using the heart strip die from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets Dies and notched one end using my Banner Triple Punch.  The banner was adhered to the sentiment bubble with some Liquid Glue, then I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the bubble over the Burlap Ribbon.  One of the cut out hearts from the banner was then added with a dimensional.  Finally, the art panel was popped onto the Real Red card stock base with more dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! Christmas Around the World

The inside sentiment is from the Hang Your Stocking stamp set, and more hearts were adhered with Liquid Glue.  The Very Vanilla panel was adhered to a panel of Pool Party and then to the card base.  

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

Stampin’ Up! Merry Christmas Wreath

I used the Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper and the Swirly Scribbles Thinlets to help create the  Merry Christmas Wreath card I am sharing for today.  

Stampin' Up! Christmas Wreath-Cardiology by Jari

The Christmas Around the World DSP (part of the buy 3 get 1 DSP sale, see below!) is matted to a Real Red panel.  I created a banner and ran it through my Big Shot using the Sparkle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to dry emboss it, then adhered it to the DSP panel.  Two of the wreaths were die cut in Garden Green and adhered to one another with dabs of Liquid Glue, then popped onto the banner with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Merry Christmas, from the At Home With You stamp set, was stamped in Real Red onto Whisper White and punched out with the Dual Banner Punch.  

Stampin' Up! Merry Christmas Wreath-Cardiology by Jari

The banner was adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then I fussy cut some packages from the DSP with my Paper Snips, adhered them and added a Metallic Enamel Shape star.  My bow was tied from the 1/4″ Quilted Christmas Ribbon and adhered with Glue Dots.  I adhered a panel of Be Merry Designer Series Paper (this is included in the buy 3 get 1 DSP sale) to my Garden Green card stock base, then popped the art panel onto the front with more dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! Merry Christmas Wreath-Cardiology by Jari

The inside sentiment is from Watercolor Wishes, and is stamped in Real Red.  The largest package was stamped using the image from the At Home With You stamp set in Real Red and then I colored in the polka dots with my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.  

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

Stampin’ Up! Winter Wonder CAS Christmas Card

I’ve got a really Clean and Simple Christmas card created from the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for today.  Can you believe it is already October 1st?  Wow, time is marching on, and I am so happy I have gotten started on my holiday cards.  Of course, I always think I have enough time, but somehow fall short every year.  How about you, have you started your Christmas cards?  Hopefully this simple card will give you some inspiration to get started if you haven’t.

Stampin' Up! Winter Wonder-Cardiology by Jari

I used the sentiment from the Star of Light stamp set and inked it in VersaMark ink, sprinkled on Gold Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  Then, I put the Whisper White panel inside the Winter Wonder TIEF and ran it through my Big Shot to dry emboss it.  

Stampin' Up! Winter Wonder-Cardiology by Jari

I matted the embossed panel with a panel of Gold Foil and popped it onto the Whisper White Thick card stock base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Three gold Metallic Enamel Shapes were added for some bling.

Stampin' Up! Winter Wonder-Cardiology by Jari

For the inside, I employed the sentiment from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set heat embossing it with more Gold Emboss Powder.  The snowflakes are from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlets Dies.  And, there you have it, a very CAS and quick Winter Wonder card!

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.  

Stampin' Up! Night in Bethlehem-Cardiology by Jari

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! 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! 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.
