Stampin’ Up! Suite Sentiments for Father’s Day

Amy's Inkin' Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome to our Masculine Themed Blog Hop featuring Amy’s Inkin’ Krew!  I’m sharing a Father’s Day Card using the Stampin’ Up! Suite Sentiments stamp set (retiring).

Suite Sentiments for Father's Day-Cardiology by Jari



My card base is Basic Black.  I added a panel of Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate to another panel of Basic Black with very tiny spots of Liquid Glue positioned in the center of the polka dots.  Then added that panel to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Next, I created a banner using some Pop of Pink DSP (retiring) and the retiring Banners Framelits Dies.  The banner was framed on the top and bottom with some Gold Foil DSP, then adhered to the front with liquid glue.

My Suite Sentiments sentiment was stamped with Versa Mark ink, sprinkled with Gold Emboss Powder and heat embossed on a panel of Whisper White.  I used a Stitched Shapes Framelit Square to cut it out, then framed it with a slightly larger Layering Square Framelit in Gold Foil DSP.

A strand of Gold Metallic Thread was wound around the back of the sentiment panel and secured with glue dots, then the panel was popped onto the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I chose my inside sentiment from 2 different stamp sets. The smaller words are from Thoughtful Banners, and the larger word is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous (available June 1st).  All were stamped in Versa Mark, sprinkled with Gold Emboss Powder and heat embossed.  I added one Metallic Enamel Shape heart, and then a strip of the same Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate to the bottom.  

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

Now, head on over to see what Mary has created for today!

Stampin’ Up! Swirly Sailboat for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop



Welcome to our New Catalog Blog Hop!  Today, Amy’s Inkin’ Krew is sharing projects from the new Stampin’ Up Annual Catalog.  My share is from the Swirly Bird Bundle.  There are so many possibilities with this set.  If you haven’t purchased it yet, you surely need to get it soon!  You won’t be disappointed.  


Swirly Sailboat


I also used Gorgeous Grunge for the “sea spray”, and Seaside Shore for the banner sentiment and the inside anchor.  For the inside sentiment, I used the Crazy About You stamp set.  It is fun when you can pull together several stamp sets for a certain theme on a card.  



Swirly Bird


And, here is the inside of the card:


Swirly Bird


So, what do you think of the Swirly Sailboat?  It’s hard to call it Swirly Bird when making a sailboat!

Card dimensions and tips will be at the end of the post.


Now it’s time to hop along to Amy’s blog to see her creation for today.  Click on the Next Blog to go to Amy’s blog, or previous to go back to Jaimie’s blog.  Let us know what you think, we love to hear from you.  A complete list of the Krew participating today is below in case you get lost or want to return to one of our blogs.  Enjoy!
