Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons Bundle

I’m sharing my new favorite stamp set bundle from the upcoming 2017-2018 Annual Catalog, the Colorful Seasons Bundle (available June 1st).  I love it because it can be used all year round and has wonderful sentiments.  Plus, don’t you just love this die cut Adirondack chair?  

Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

The sketch inspiration is from Freshly Made Sketches FMS#285

 

I started with a Whisper White panel and stamped it with the Gorgeous Grunge (retiring) stamps in Crushed Curry. Because it was going to be the background, I stamped the images off onto a scrap paper first.  Next, I stamped the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons Bundle, in Early Expresso directly onto the art panel.  The sun was die cut with a die from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlets and glued down.  

 

Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

 

I die cut the Adirondack chair from the new Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (available June 1st) and the die from the Colorful Seasons Bundle.  The gulls were drawn on with an Early Expresso Stampin’ Write Marker and I adhered the art panel to a panel of Crushed Curry card stock with more glue.  Next, I cut thin strips from my Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered them to the back of the chair and popped it onto the card front.  The new Berry Burst ink was used to stamp the glass and straw, then die cut using the Seasonal Layers Thinlets Dies.  Once the glass was adhered just above the chair arm, I popped the whole front onto the Lemon Lime Twist card base with more Dimensionals. 

Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons Bundle-Cardiology by Jari The inside sentiment is also from the Colorful Seasons set and stamped in Early Expresso ink.  I used Lemon Lime Twist for the flowers and the centers are Berry Burst.  

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

Stampin’ Up! Suite Sentiments

I’m sharing a card created with the Suite Sentiments stamp set, from Stampin’ Up! today. 

Stampin' Up! Suite Sentiments by Cardiology by Jari

 

 

My sketch was inspired by the sketch challenge this week at Fab Friday:

FabFri107

 

And I used the TGIFc97 color combo challenge for my color choices:

TGIFc97

 

I think you could say I really like this color combo, as my last card was created with the exact same combo!  Trust me, it was not planned, but I do love them together.  I started by adhering a panel from Cupcakes and Carousels to a panel of Calypso Coral. Then, adhered that panel to my Bermuda Bay card stock base.  Using the ink to rubber technique, I colored the sentiment, from Suite Sentiments, with Calypso Coral and Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write Markers.  Next, I huffed on it a few times, then stamped it onto a panel of Very Vanilla.  

 

Stampin' Up! Suite Sentiments by Cardiology by Jari

 

The sentiment was then die cut with a banner die from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets dies.  The larger banner is a strip of Bermuda Bay Glimmer paper notched at either end with my Banner Triple Punch. My  Lace Doily was then cut in half and I adhered the Very Vanilla side onto a half circle die cut from Calypso Coral card stock.  

 

Stampin' Up! Suite Sentiments Cardiology by Jari

I chose another sentiment from the Suite Sentiments stamp set and stamped it in Calypso Coral onto the Very Vanilla card stock base.

Stampin’ Up! Time of Year for The Paper Players

I combined the Time of Year and Love & Affection stamp sets to create a card for The Paper Players Clean and Simple Challenge this week.  

 

Time of Year Love & Affection

 

The challenge this week is to create a CAS card with the sentiment as the focal point.  I hope you’ll check out all of the other designs at PP#332.

 

Paper Players #332

 

I started with a panel of Cucumber Crush as my base.  When I paired it with Night of Navy, I felt like I needed to do something to the Night of Navy besides just creating a frame with Copper Foil paper.  So, I pulled out my Floral Affections Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and dry embossed the Night of Navy layer.  The folder is smaller than most Embossing Folders so I was able to move the panel and emboss different sections .  I actually ran it through 4 different times, embossing the corners and some of the middle.

 

Time of Year and Love & Affection

 

Thinking of You is the main sentiment in the Time of Year Host stamp set, and I stamped it in Versa Mark ink on a panel of Crumb Cake card stock.  Then, I sprinkled it with Copper Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. Once dry, it was cut out with the largest square from the Layering Squares Framelits Dies.   The frame is the largest scalloped square from that same set of framelits.   I chose the small flower image from Love & Affection and stamped a panel of Watermelon Wonder with more Versa Mark ink, then Copper Emboss Powder.  The flower was then fussy cut with my Paper Snips.  

 

Time of Year and Love & Affection

 

For the center strip, I chose the Affectionately Yours Specialty DSP and used more Copper Foil for a frame for it.  Once all the parts were completed, I began adhering them from the bottom up.  The Night of Navy panel was adhered to the Foil with glue, then adhered to the card base with Dimensionals. The center strip was adhered with glue, then the sentiment panel popped on with Dimensionals. I added the flower last with a small Dimensional.

The inside of my card is simple, too

Time of Year and Love & Affection

I used the sentiment from Love & Affection and stamped it in Versa Mark, then heat embossed it with Copper Emboss Powder.  

A complete list of stamping supplies and card stock cuts in inches for my Time of Year and Love & Affection card will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Blooms & Wishes For You

I used the Blooms & Wishes stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create a Clean and Simple card for today.  

Blooms & Wishes

 

I was inspired by the colors over at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #86 this week

SIP 86

 

And, my sketch was inspired by Case this Sketch CAS(E)#209

 

I started by making a mask of the largest flower image so that my other flowers would appear to be behind it.  I used Daffodil Delight ink and stamped the flower from Blooms & Wishes onto a sticky note, and fussy cut it out.  Then, I stamped the large flower image onto my Whisper White panel.  I stamped the center image with Peekaboo Peach.  

 

Blooms & Wishes

 

The mask was then placed on top of the large flower and I began to stamp the other flowers and leaves using Peekaboo Peach, Bermuda Bay and Wild Wasabi.  Once all of the florals were completed, I stamped the sentiment, also from Blooms & Wishes, in Versa Mark ink.  Copper Embossing Powder was sprinkled on top and heat embossed.

 

Blooms & Wishes

The art panel was adhered to a panel of Bermuda Bay with liquid glue. Then, I added a few pearls to the centers of the small flowers and popped it onto the Whisper White base with dimensionals.

 

Blooms & Wishe

For the inside, I stamped some more of the flower images from Blooms & Wishes using the masking technique again, and layered it onto a panel of Bermuda Bay before adhering it to the Whisper White base.  

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

Stampin’ Up! Avant Garden Hello

Happy Sunday, thanks for stopping by!  My share today is from the FREE Avant Garden stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  Wow, do I love this set.  It is my first time using it, and I already have another card in mind for it!  

 

Avant Garden

This is a very clean and simple card to do, it came together in just a few minutes.  We all need those cards every now and then, right?  I started with a Wild Wasabi card base and stamped the dotted images from Avant Garden all over it in the same colored ink.  

Avant Garden

 

Next, I went to work creating my “garden”.  I stamped the flower image from Avant Garden in Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach, stamping off some of them to get different shades of color. The flower centers are stamped in Soft Suede ink.   Then, I added the leaf images,  randomly stamping in Wild Wasabi ink.  I added the Hello sentiment from Flourishing Phrases, in Soft ink.  I chose a pattern from the Playful Palette DSP stack and adhered it at angle onto the base with liquid glue.  The art panel was then popped onto the front with dimenstionals.  

 

Avant Garden

 

I added some more flowers and leaves to the bottom of the Very Vanilla panel and adhered it with liquid glue for the inside.  Violá, very quick and easy!  Now, don’t  you love this set, too?  Remember, with any $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration, this set can be yours for FREE, too!

Stampin’ Up! Merriest Wishes

Today’s share is a monochromatic Christmas card using the Merriest Wishes stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

 

Wishes

 

The inspiration for my sketch is from CAS(E) This Sketch #196

 

CTS196

 

Wishes

 

My CAS (Clean and Simple) Merriest Wishes Christmas Card came together very quickly.  First, I dry embossed a panel of Whisper White card stock with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Then, I added two strips of Silver 3/8″ Glitter Ribbon with Tear & Tape Adhesive.  I stamped the 25 image from Merriest Wishes in Versa Mark ink, added some Heat & Stick Powder and briefly heated it.  Once it was a little tacky, I added Silver Glitter Embossing powder and completed the heat embossing.  I used one of the Merry Tags Framelits Dies to cut it out.  I die cut the large ornament in Silver Foil and glued the 25 to it. The sentiment is from Star of Light and is heat embossed in Silver Emboss Powder and cut out with a banner die from Bunch of Banners. I used  Silver 1/8″ Ribbon for the bow.

As promised, I told you I would share some from Atlanta this weekend.  Brian King and Pam Morris hosted a World Card Making event (Friday) to coincide with the On Stage Stampin’ Up! event in Atlanta this weekend.  We had fun hearing some great tips from other demonstrators, saw some great cards and projects other fellow demos made, won some prizes and made some cards!  Here are a couple of photos to share:

 

WCMD

 

 

The table decoration is the adorable bauble in the flower pot.  Each table looked so nice before we all began stamping!  As you can see in the background, we kind of had a mess (and chocolates!)  Look at the adorable packaging for our chocolate chip cookies!  

 

WCMD

The little box on the left was also a gift to the attendees, it is filled with peppermints and had a small wooden stamp tucked inside as a surprise!  The two small cards were just a couple of our make and takes.

 

 

Thanks for stopping by today, see you next time with some more photos and maybe some surprises!

Stampin’ Up! Swirly Bird Kite

Today’s  clean and simple card is made with the Kite images from the Swirly Bird stamp set from Stampin’ Up! I have seen several cards using the Kite in this set and have been wanting to try it myself.  

 

Kite

 

 

My sketch inspiration came from Case This Sketch, CTS #183.  Please make sure you take a look at all of the inspiration over there.

 

CTS 183 Kite

 

 

Kite

 

I started by stamping the Kite images in Bermuda Bay and Pacific Point onto some Whisper White thick card stock.  Whenever I am going to fussy cut an image, the thick card stock holds up much better for me.  I used the “swoosh” image from Sheltering Tree and inked some bright colors for the sky background.  They are in order from top down:  Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Calypso Coral.  

 

Kite

 

 

 

The Thinking of You sentiment is also from Sheltering Tree, and is stamped onto the front of the Whisper White panel in Pacific Point ink.  I decided where I wanted each Kite to go and then stamped the kite strings in Pacific Point.  The tails are stamped in Pacific Point and Bermuda Bay.  Then each Kite was added to the front with dimensionals.  I adhered the art piece to a panel of Bermuda Bay with liquid glue, then popped that panel onto the Pacific Point card base with dimensionals.

 

Kite

 

 

For the inside, I chose a sentiment from the Suite Sayings stamp set and stamped it in Pacific Point, then added another Kite stamped in Bermuda Bay and Pacific Point inks.

 

Card Stock Cuts in inches and a list of Stampin’ Up! products used will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Blooms for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Birthday Blooms for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop March 31st

 

 Welcome once again to our weekly hop. My share for today is from Birthday Blooms from Stampin’ Up! We have a sketch challenge this week.

Happy Stampers Blog Hop Birthday Blooms

I have had this set, Birthday Blooms, for a while, but had not used it.  Wow, it is another favorite from Stampin’ Up!  And, I especially love how it looks with the Birthday Bouquet DSP.

Birthday Blooms

My card was really quick and easy to put together.  I just stamped the Watermelon Wonder card base with the large flower image from Birthday Blooms in Watermelon Wonder ink, then stamped the dots randomly around the flower (also in Watermelon Wonder).  I cut a panel of Birthday Bouquet DSP that I attached to a panel of Mossy Meadow with multipurpose liquid glue, then adhered it to the card base with more glue.  

Stampin' Up! Birthday Blooms

I stamped the banner from the Rose Wonder stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink and used the coordinating die from the Rose Garden Thinlets Dies to cut it out.  The sentiment, from Birthday Blooms, was then stamped in Watermelon Wonder ink.  

Stampin' Up! Birthday Blooms

A small piece of a Tea Lace Doily was attached to the banner, then I added dimensionals and popped it onto the card front.  Some  Pearl Basic Jewels were then added for a final touch for the front.

Stampin' Up! Birthday Blooms

I stamped the same flower image from Birthday Blooms on the inside using Watermelon Wonder ink on the Whisper White panel, then stamped the image from Rose Wonder in Mossy Meadow.  Along the bottom is a strip of Watermelon Wonder washi tape.  I framed the artwork piece with a panel of Mossy Meadow from the Designer Series Paper Stacks.

Card stock cuts will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Remarkable You for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Stampers March 10th Blog Hop

My share for today’s Happy Stampers Blog Hop goes out to a very special person.  I decided to use the Remarkable You stamp set because she is truly Remarkable!  Sandi, the original Happy Stamper, is having surgery today and we all want her to know how special she is and that we miss her.  She has been absent from the hop for a few weeks and we patiently await her return and wish her a speedy recovery.

Here is our color challenge:

Remarkable You is the perfect stamp set for trying out water coloring!  

Stampin' Up! Remarkable You for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop by Cardiology by Jari

We have had such beautiful weather in Georgia the last few days, that I wanted to try photographing my card outside.  I love the outdoor effect with the calla lilies.  As a little girl growing up in Florida, I remember these beautiful flowers growing wild out in the pastures and how much I loved them!

Remarkable You stamp set from Stampin' Up!

The Old Olive card base is stamped first with the leaf stamp from Remarkable You with Old Olive ink.   I used the stamping off technique. This is where you stamp first on a scrap of paper and then stamp onto your card without re-inking. It gives a softer effect. The calla lilies and the sentiment were stamped onto a panel of Water color paper with Versa Mark ink, then heat embossed with Black embossing powder.  I then used my Aqua Painter to “paint” the center of the flower with Hello Honey ink and a little Tangelo Twist for the stamen. The stems were done in Old Olive ink.  The water colored panel was then adhered to a panel of Basic Black with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  A strand of Old Olive Baker’s twine was then wrapped around the art panel 3 times and finished with a bow.  This panel was then popped onto the Old Olive base with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I chose a sentiment and butterfly from the Best Thoughts stamp set.

The sentiment and butterfly were stamped with Basic Black Archival ink, then the butterfly colored in with my Hello Honey Stampin’ Write Marker.
