Stampin’ Up! Amazing You for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

It’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday on the last Thursday in 2017, wow, where has this year gone?  We have a sketch to challenge us this week and I used the Amazing You stamp set and Celebrate You Thinlets Dies to create my card for today.  Both the stamp set and thinlets dies are available for FREE during Sale-A-Bration beginning on January 3rd.

Stampin' Up! Amazing You-Cardiology by Jari

I started with a Whisper White Thick card stock base.  A panel of the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP was adhered to a panel of Copper Foil with liquid glue and a length of 1/4″ Copper Trim was wrapped around and finished with a bow.  I secured the ribbon with some tape on the back before adhering the whole panel to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! Amazing You-Cardiology by Jari

An oval was cut with one of the largest Layering Ovals Framelits Dies from Whisper White card stock.  Then, I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement of the words celebrate and you from the Amazing You stamp set (available January 3rd).  They were stamped in Versa Mark ink, sprinkled with Copper Emboss Powder and heat embossed until smooth and shiny.  Next, I die cut the largest scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits in Silver Foil and adhered it to the sentiment oval with Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Amazing You-Cardiology by Jari

I die cut the word amazing from the Celebrate You Thinlets (available January 3rd) three times from Silver Foil, adhered them with tiny dots of Liquid Glue, then adhered them to the oval with more Liquid Glue.  For a final touch, I used the Pretty Pines Thinlets Dies to cut out a single branch in Copper Foil, added one Rhinestone Basic Jewel with a glue dot and the front was completed.  Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate You Sneak Peek!

I’m sharing a sneak peek of the Celebrate You Thinlets dies from the upcoming Sale-A-Bration Promotion coming in Jaunary!  The Celebrate You Thinlets are FREE when you purchase products from Stampin’ Up! beginning January 3, 2018.  I paired the Celebrate You Thinlets with the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Cake Soiree stamp set, available from the 2018 Occasions Catalog, also in January.  

Stampin' Up! Celebrate You-CardiologybyJari

While looking through my new Occasions Catalog, I noticed a card design in the Sweet Soiree Suite that caught my eye and I used it as inspiration for this card.  The new Sweet Soiree DSP is just beautiful with its colorful printed images on one side and Silver Foil accents on the other.  Look closely and you will see several new products featured on my card.  Of course, the Celebrate You Thinlets Die is front and center.  This die set has 3 dies:  Celebrate, Amazing and You.  My banner was dry embossed with the new Scattered Sequins Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and I scattered a couple of Tutti-frutti Adhesive Backed Berry Burst Sequins on the front.  The stamping was done with stamps from the new Cake Soiree stamp set.  

Stampin' Up! Celebrate You-CardiologybyJari

Inside, I stamped another sentiment from Cake Soiree using the ink to rubber method with an Old Olive and Berry Burst Stampin’ Write Marker.  I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement, so that I could also fit one of the flower images beside it.  Stampin' Up! Celebrate You-CardiologybyJari

The flower was first stamped in Versa Mark ink, sprinkled with Silver Emboss Powder and heated until smooth and shiny.  Then, I filled in the open spaces with my Berry Burst Stampin’ Write Marker.  

Along with this card, I want to show you the last make and take we made at On Stage last month.  It is this darling Silver Mini Gable gift box:

Stampin' Up! Celebrate You-Cardiology by Jari

These boxes are also featured in the 2018 Occasions Catalog and are available for purchase January 3, 2018.  We used a strip of the same DSP as used on my card to wrap around the box, added a cute sentiment, and tied it up with some new Berry Burst 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon and a little Silver Baker’s Twine.  Don’t you love it?!!

Check out pages 10-13 in the 2018 Occasions Catalog and page 17 in the Sale-A-Bration Brochure for all of these and more exciting new products!

Stampin’ Up! Fruit Basket Bundle Sneak Peek

I am taking a short break from Christmas card making to share some projects made with the Fruit Basket Bundle from the 2018 Occasions Catalog today.  The first project was a made during On Stage in November and was created by my up-line, Amy Koenders.  It was so much fun watching Amy demonstrate these adorable tags, and then we got to make them ourselves.

Stampin' Up! Fruit Basket Bundle-CardiologybyJari

The Fruit Basket Bundle includes 25 Photopolymer stamps and 4 small individual fruit punches.  Take a look:

Stampin' Up! Fruit Basket Bundle-CardiologybyJari

I love how the stamp is just a little larger than the actual punch, which makes it much easier to punch out your pear, melon, pineapple or strawberry.  I decided to use one of my tags on a card front.  What do you think?

Stampin' Up! Fruit Basket-CardioloogybyJari

There is an added surprise, see the card base and envelope?  They are part of a set of 16 preprinted card bases and envelopes you can earn for FREE during Sale-A-Bration, and they coordinate with the Tutti Frutti Suite.  There are 4 each of Lemon Lime Twist, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Pool Party.  Fun, fun, fun!  Ordering begins on January 3rd for the Fruit Basket Bundle, unless you are a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, and you can order it now.  Isn’t that a great incentive to join?  I’d love to have you join my team and share in all of the excitement of early ordering.  (That is just one of the perks)  Contact me for more information, and make sure you check out my Join My Team Page.

Important Update on the Stamparatus!

Stamparatus

The results are in! The first Stamparatus reservation window reached its maximum number of reservations in just 15 minutes, which provided us with some very important information: You LOVE this new stamping tool! We couldn’t be more thrilled; in fact, your response was so amazing that we’ve decided to make some important adjustments to the reservation process.
 
As was previously announced, the second reservation window will remain open from December 5–30; however, during this reservation period we will take as many orders as we receive and not close the window until December 30. So whether the total number of reservations is 100 or 100,000, the window will stay open!
Please note the following changes:
  • Beginning March 19, we will ship Stamparatuses in the order the reservations were received (first in, first out) and continue through the next few months and beyond as product arrives in our warehouse. Because shipment dates are based on manufacturing lead times, not all of the reservations made during the December 5–30 window will ship on March 19 (as was previously announced).
  • In order to accommodate demand, limits have changed as follows:
    • One reservation per customer.
    • Because we are not limiting the maximum number of reservations for the second window, we will not offer a third window. This is the last chance for you to reserve a Stamparatus before it becomes available in the 2018-2019 annual catalog.

Please note what has not changed:

  • The reservation window will open at 2:00 PM (MT) on December 5.

We can’t wait for you to get your hands on your very own Stamparatus and look forward to seeing the projects you’ll make with this incredible stamping tool.

Stampin’ Up! Color Me Happy & Stampin’ Blends

I used the Stampin’ Up! Color Me Happy stamp set and the Stampin’ Blends to create two note cards to share today.  Today is the day-the Color Me Happy stamp set, Color Me Happy Project Kit, and the Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers are all available to order beginning today.  And, I have an ordering special you can read about later in my post.  

Stampin' Up! Color Me Happy-Cardiology by Jari

I know you are going to love these Stampin’ Blends markers.  They are really fun and easy to work with.  For the first card, I stamped the bird image from Color Me Happy in Memento Tuxedo Black, then I began coloring with the Light Pool Party marker.  Next, I used the Dark Pool Party marker to do some shading.  I blended some of the Lighter Pool Party with the Dark and added some Pumpkin Pie for the beak, legs and feet.

Stampin' Up! Color Me Happy-Cardiology by Jari

For the second card, I stamped the lantern string in Memento Tuxedo Black ink across the top of the panel.  Then, I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to help with the placement of the lanterns.  One extra small lantern was stamped on a scrap of Whisper White Thick card stock, colored and blended in with the Daffodil Delight markers and fussy cut out.  


Stampin' Up! Color Me Happy-Cardiology by Jari

The larger lanterns on either end of the art panel were colored and blended with both the light and dark Rich Razzleberry markers.  I used the Color Lifter to help with the shading in the center of the lanterns.  The extra lantern that was fussy cut was popped on over the stamped lantern in the center with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

There are so many stamp sets in both the Annual Catalog and the Holiday Catalog that are perfect for coloring with the new Stampin’ Blends.  I hope you’ll check out the information below and order yours today!

Stampin’ Up! Painted Autumn Harvest

Well, today is the day you have all been waiting for, the 2017 Holiday Catalog goes live!!  I’m sharing the long anticipated Painted  Autumn Designer series paper, paired with the oh so awesome Painted Harvest stamp set bundle. You cannot go wrong with this suite of items for your fall  projects.  Don’t wait too long to order, I am sure it will be a favorite of many!

Stampin' Up! Painted Autumn-Cardiology by Jari

This Painted Autumn DSP is loaded with so many rich fall colors, and the paper, well, it speaks for itself.   I let it make my card quick and easy for today.

A panel of Very Vanilla was adhered to Early Expresso with liquid glue.   Next, a thin strip of Early Expresso was added to the right side of the Painted Autumn DSP and both adhered to the Very Vanilla panel.  A length of Linen Thread was wrapped around the large panel three times and secured to the back with tape.  

Stampin' Up! Painted Autumn-Cardiology by Jari

The sentiment was stamped in Versa Mark ink, sprinkled with Copper Emboss powder and heat embossed until smooth and shiny.  The Very Vanilla Stitched Shape oval was die cut and framed with a scalloped Early Expresso oval and then a little larger Crushed Curry oval then popped onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! Painted Autumn-Cardiology by Jari

Two leaf images were stamped in Garden Green (the leaf outline stamp) and Lemon Lime Twist (the solid leaf stamp), and punched with the Leaf Punch.  One of the sunflowers from the Painted Autumn DSP was fussy cut with my Paper Snips.  I added the leaves with liquid glue and the sunflower with dimensionals.  A fun bow was created with more Linen Thread and the center of the bow pulled together with some of the  1/4″ Copper Trim.  Notice I pulled the ends of the Copper Trim apart to add some interest.  

If you look closely, you’ll see the sunflower I stamped peeking out from the inside Very Vanilla panel.  The rest of the panel was left blank for writing.

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

Stampin’ Up! Pick a Pumpkin Bundle

I’m sharing a peek today at the Pick a Pumpkin Bundle from the 2017 Holiday Catalog, which goes live to customers this Friday, September 1st!  Are you excited?  Hopefully you have had time to mark your catalog for your favorites and are counting the hours until you can order.  

Stampin' Up! Pick a Pumpkin Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

I think you will like the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set because it also has images to stamp faces onto the pumpkins if you choose to create a Halloween card.  I decided to make a fall card, so I made plain pumpkins.  The pumpkins were stamped in Tangerine Tango and Early Expresso ink was used for the stems.  They were die cut with the Patterned Pumpkin Thinlets Dies.  I also used the dies to cut out the leaves and vines in Garden Green,  two sprigs ,in Garden Green and one sprig and the open pumpkin in Copper Foil. Stampin' Up! Pick a Pumpkin-Cardiology by Jari

One of the sprigs was stamped in VersaMark ink, then sprinkled with Copper Emboss powder and heat embossed before cutting out with the corresponding die.  I adhered a panel of Painted Autumn DSP to a panel of Early Expresso card stock,  Then, I adhered a panel of Very Vanilla card stock to a panel of Early Expresso card stock and decided where I wanted to stamp the sentiment.  This sentiment is from the Seasonal Lanterns stamp set (available September 1st) and was stamped in Early Expresso ink.  

Stampin' Up! Pick a Pumpkin-Cardioloogy by Jari

The DSP band was adhered to the Very Vanilla/Early Expresso panel and then a length of Burlap Ribbon was adhered to the front and back with Tear & Tape Adhesive.  Next, I looped a length of Copper Thread and adhered it to the medium sized pumpkin with several glue dots.  The Copper pumpkin was added first, then I began to build the other elements using Stampin’ Dimensionals or dabs of Liquid Glue. Once all of the parts were adhered, I popped the art panel onto the Tangerine Tango card base with more dimensionals.

Background Bits Host Stamps for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I am sharing the Stampin’ Up! Background Bits Host stamp set for our color challenge today.  

Stampin' Up! Background Bits Host Set-Cardiology by Jari

We are playing with Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo and Black this week.

Color Challenge for Happy Innkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 

I started by stamping the splatter image from the Touches of Texture stamp set in Flirty Flamingo onto a Whisper White panel, near the center. (I stamped off twice, then onto the panel)  Then, I adhered panels of Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper along the side and bottom of the stamped panel.  A length of Flirty Flamingo 3/8″ Striped Ribbon was adhered with some Tear & Tape adhesive at the top of the black DSP and around to the back of the panel.

 

Stampin' Up! Background Bits Host Set-Cardiology by Jari

 

Using my Banner Triple punch, I punched one end of a panel of Emerald Envy Naturally Eclectic DSP and adhered it above the ribbon.  Next, I wrapped a length of Basic Black Baker’s Twine around the panel three times and tied a bow.

Using my Flirty Flamingo and Emerald Envy Stampin’ Write Markers, I inked up the flower image stamp from the Background Bits Host stamp set, huffed on it several times and stamped it onto a panel of Whisper White.  (Huffing on it makes the ink moist again) I used my Layering Circle Framelits Dies to cut out the flowers and then mat it with a scalloped circle in Flirty Flamingo.

I wanted a fairly small sentiment, so I used the All Things Thanks stamp set.  It was die cut using the smallest banner die from the Bunch of Banners Framelits.  The banner was adhered with the small Stampin’ Dimensionals, then the circle art panel adhered to the card front with regular Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The last step was to add the whole art panel to the Emerald Envy card base with more dimensionals.

The bottom of the inside panel was stamped with another image from the Background Bits Host set in Flirty Flamingo, and Thank You was stamped in Basic Black Archival ink.  

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

Stampin’ Up! Hello Friend, Thinking of You

I used the Stampin’ Up! Hello Friend stamp set for the card I’m sharing with you today.  

Stampin' Up! Hello Friend Cardiology by Jari

 

The inspiration for the card layout is from Fab Friday #119 

FabFri#119

And, I am playing along with the color challenge at As You See It Challenge #156

As You See It #156

I have to admit, these are not colors I would have put together on my own, well, maybe the Lemon Lime Twist and the Elegant Eggplant.  But, the Real Red added to the mix was a challenge!  I do love the Lemon Lime Twist, as most of you who follow my blog have seen!  

I started by dry embossing a Real Red panel with the Sparkle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, then adhered it to the Elegant Eggplant card base.  Next, I stamped the wreath image from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Friend stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist onto Whisper White.  The small flower images from the set were stamped in Real Red and fussy cut with my Paper Snips, then adhered to the wreath. A panel of Lemon Lime Twist was adhered to the art panel and then half of a Silver Foil Doily was adhered so that just a portion peeked out.  This panel was then adhered to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Hello Friend-Cardiology by Jari

Originally, I had only intended on stamping the wreath, but decided it looked a little bare, so I stamped the sentiment and cut it with a small Layering Circle die.  It was framed with a little larger Stitched Shapes circle in Elegant Eggplant, then popped on with dimensionals.  I punched the end of a panel of Lemon Lime Twist with my Banner Triple Punch, then adhered it to the art panel with glue.  Hello, from the Hello Friend stamp set was stamped with Elegant Eggplant ink and then fussy cut around the letters with my Paper Snips.  It was added to the banner with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! Hello Friend-Cardiology by Jari

I had stamped several Real Red Flowers that I did not use on the front of the card, so I used them for the inside.  Before gluing them  down, I stamped a couple of leaves from the set in Lemon Lime Twist.  The sentiment is another from the Hello Friend set and was stamped in Elegant Eggplant.  

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

Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Note Cards and Mini Pizza Box

It’s Monday, and I hope you’re all set to safely watch the total eclipse!  I think we are having lots of rain and clouds, so I will probably tune in via the television!  For my card today, I used the Painted Harvest stamp set (available September 1st)and created five 3″ x 3″ note cards that fit beautifully into the new Mini Pizza Boxes (available on September 1st).

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest-Cardiology by Jari

 

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest-Cardiology by Jari

Do you see that cute little 3″ x 3″ Envelope?  Yes, it is also available September 1st when the 2017 Holiday Catalog goes live!!

Each card base was cut from Whisper White Thick card stock.  For the top three cards, I single matted my Whisper White art piece with a panel that was 1/8″ larger for each.  For the bottom two cards, I double matted them.  It adds a little variety plus, I accidentally cut one of my art panels too small and had already stamped it!  There is a method to my madness-at least sometimes 🙂

Painted Harvest is a two step stamp set, and for each sunflower, I stamped the largest image first in Crushed Curry ink. Then, I stamped the second image with Peekaboo Peach for two of the cards, and Tangerine Tango for the other three. All of the leaves were stamped in Lemon Lime Twist.  I used a mask to cover each sunflower when I stamped them.  All of the sentiments were stamped using the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.

These Mini Pizza Boxes (available Sept. 1st) are really great because they are food safe.  I can just imagine all of the wonderful sweet treats they could be filled with for the holidays!  Don’t you just love the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (available Sept. !st)I used on the top of the box?  Get your wish lists ready the big day is coming soon.  

The Mini Pizza Boxes and 3″ x 3″ Whisper White Envelopes can be found on page 44 of the 2017 Holiday Catalog.  

 

Card stock cuts and supplies needed to create these note cards will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Count My Blessings Sneak Peek

I’m sharing another sneak peek of the Stampin’ Up! Count My Blessings stamp set available September 1st.  I’m also sharing a peek at the beautiful Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper, from the 2017 Holiday Catalog.  You are going to love this paper for your fall cards, and you’ll see its not just for fall, too!   Make sure you sign up for my Holiday Catalog Paper Share to receive this beautiful paper as well as a sampling of all of the new papers.  See the details below.  

Stampin' Up! Count My Blessings-Cardiology by Jari

I started by adhering a panel of the Autumn Harvest Designer Series Paper (available September 1st) to a panel of Lemon Lime Twist.  Yes, I am using this for a fall card!  It is truly versatile, isn’t it?  Next, I stamped the flower image from the Count My Blessings stamp set in Basic Black Archival ink onto a panel of water color paper.  I also stamped the smaller flower/leaf image once on the left side of the middle image and once on the right side in Basic Black ink.  Then, using my Aqua Painter and Lemon Lime Twist, Tangerine Tango and Cajun Craze inks, colored in the images.  

Stampin' Up! Count My Blessings-Cardiology by Jari

Once the art panel was completely dry, I adhered it to a panel of Tangerine Tango card stock with liquid glue and then to the DSP panel with more glue.  Then, I adhered the art panel to the Tangerine Tango card stock base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Count My Blessings-Cardiology by Jari

I stamped the sentiment from Count My Blessings in Early Expresso ink onto another panel of watercolor paper and punched one end with my Banner Triple Punch.  For the opposite end of the banner, I wound a length of Linen Thread around a couple of times and tied a bow.  I cut a Delicate White Doily to peek out from under the banner and adhered it to the banner with glue, then popped the banner onto the front with dimensionals.  One Gold Metallic Enamel Shape Heart was added to the front and my card was complete!  

The inside is finished with a strip of the same Autumn Harvest DSP adhered to a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Make sure you add the Count My Blessings stamp set to your Wish List, you will love it!
