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!

And, the lucky winner is Sandy!  Sandy said,

 Thank you for an opportunity to Win! I have been eyeing that stamp set for awhile!”

Please contact me so that I can get your prizes to you, Sandy!

 

I loved reading all of your comments, and want to say a huge thank you to all of you.  Your comments are what keep me going-especially on days I am not sure I have the creativity to get a card done!!

 

 I chose the Season to Sparkle Bundle to create a Christmas card to share with you today.  

Stampin' Up! Season to Sparkle Cardiology by Jari

This card came together rather quickly because of the large chandelier image which takes up most of the card front.  It was stamped in Versa Mark ink, sprinkled with Silver Emboss Powder, then heat embossed onto my Cherry Cobbler panel.  I also stamped the ornaments in Versa Mark, and embossed them in Silver Emboss Powder, then cut them out with the Chandelier Thinlets Dies.  This stamp set bundle can be used for Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day and even for a wedding card.  I love it when you can get a lot of mileage from one bundle!  

Stampin' Up! Season to Sparkle-Cardiology by Jari winner

I stamped the sentiment in Basic Black Archival ink onto a panel of Silver Foil and then used my Bunch of Banners dies to cut a banner that was popped on with some Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I used some Silver 1/8″ Ribbon to create a bow and adhered it with Glue Dots.  For a final touch, I added a few Metallic Enamel Shapes to the banner and above each ornament.  

Stampin' Up! Season to Sparkle-Cardiology by Jari winner

The inside Cherry Cobbler panel was stamped with a sentiment and star bursts also found in the stamp set. All were stamped with Versa Mark ink, sprinkled with Silver Emboss Powder and heat embossed.

Christmas Pines Noel for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 

I used the Christmas Pines stamp set to create a Noel, or Christmas season card, for our hop today.  We are all playing with this sketch:

Happy Inkin' Thursday Noel sketch

Stampin' Up! Christmas Pines Noel-Cardiology by Jari

This stamp set and the Pretty Pines Thinlets dies are still a favorite of mine despite all of the wonderful new sets in the 2017 Holiday Catalog!  I started by dry embossing a panel of Garden Green with the Softly Falling embossing folder.  Then, I adhered two panels of the fun Be Merry Designer Series Paper with liquid glue.  I used some Stampin’ Dimensionals to then pop this panel onto my Cherry Cobbler card base. 

Stampin' Up! Christmas Pines Noel-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I stamped Noel in Cherry Cobbler onto a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock and fussy cut it out with Paper Snips.  I also stamped the scrolly banner from the Christmas Pines set in Garden Green and fussy cut it out.  Noel was then adhered to the banner with dimensionals.  Several pine boughs were die cut using the Pretty Pines Thinlets Dies  and adhered to the front panel with glue dots.  I added a couple of other sprigs of Cherry Cobbler to fill it out and popped the banner on with dimensionals.  Three Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added for some bling to the front.  

 

Stampin' Up! Christmas Pines Noel-Cardiology by Jari

For the inside, I stamped a pine bough in Garden Green, stamping off once on scrap paper, then stamped the sentiment right over it in Cherry Cobbler.  

A complete list of stamping supplies and card stock cuts will be at the end of my 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 Cafe for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 

Hi Stampers! We have a color challenge this week, and I used the Merry Cafe stamp set and Coffee Cups Framelits Dies to create the card I am sharing with you.

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe-Cardiology by Jari

I had so much fun with this Merry Cafe stamp set and these colors this week!  The Lemon Lime Twist and Real Red really make a statement together, don’t they?  Luckily, the Quilted Christmas DSP helped out with getting in all of the colors required.  

As you can see, I also got in some dry embossing with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the Lemon Lime Twist backdrop.  

Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe-Cardioloogy by Jari

The coffee cup images and lids were stamped onto the DSP, Garden Green and Real Red card stock with Soft Suede ink, then die cut out.  For the Whisper White cup sleeve, I stamped the sentiments on after die cutting it and added the holly berries and leaves, then went around the edges with my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker to give a defined border.  The Lemon Lime Twist cup sleeve was die cut from the die with the ridges and a Silver Foil snowflake from the Seasonal Layers Thinlets was adhered to the center of it.  

Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe-Cardiology by Jari

The Silver Foil swirl serving as steam is from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlets Dies.  I matted the red-checked Quilted Christmas DSP onto some Whisper White and then onto the Lemon Lime Twist panel.  A length of 1/4″ Ombre Lemon Lime Twist was wrapped around then, and a bow tied.  The coffee cups were adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then the whole art panel adhered to the Real Red card stock base with more dimensionals.  An extra sentiment from Merry Cafe was stamped in Real Red, cut out with the smallest banner from the Bunch of Banners Framelits, adhered with dimensionals and the front was complete.

Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe-Cardiology by Jari

More holly and berries and the sentiment were stamped onto a Whisper White panel, then a thin strip of the Quilted Christmas DSP was added to the bottom and my card was finished!  

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

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.

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!

Card stock cuts and a complete list of supplies will be found at the end of the post.

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.
