Halloween Labels to Love for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

We’re back with a color challenge this week, and it screams fall, doesn’t it?

Happy Inkin' Thursday Sketch Challenge Halloween Label

I used the Labels to Love stamp set to create a Halloween card for today.  As I have stated before, Labels to Love is perfect for a Halloween Label, Thanksgiving Label, Christmas Label, New Year’s Label or Valentine’s Label.  Whew! that’s a lot of holidays covered with one stamp set!

I also pulled out the Patterned Pumpkin Thinlets Dies and the Spooky Night Designer Series paper to add to my Halloween label to make it more festive and get in all of the colors for this week.  Here is a little closer look:

I kept it pretty simple for the inside of the card using more of the DSP for the small pumpkin and the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlets for the Basic Black Jack-o-Lantern.

Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Sentiments for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Snowflake Sentiments Bundle to create the card I am sharing for our sketch challenge this week.  As I write this post, I am sitting at my son’s house 35 miles away from my home to use his electricity and internet!  We got a lot of wind damage during Irma and our whole little town is without power until Georgia Power gets to us!  That may be Saturday or Sunday, so those of you who regularly follow my blog posts, I will be back up and running hopefully early next week!  One other quick note, my pictures will look a little dark, too-I had to use the little bit of light coming through my window 🙂

 

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments bundle-Cardiology by Jari

 

Here is our sketch:

Happy Inkin' Thursday Snowflake

 

I started by die cutting either end of a panel of Foil Frenzy Specialty DSP with the Card Front Builder Thinlets Dies, then adhered it to a panel of Soft Sky with small dabs of glue from my Fine Tip Glue Pen.   

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I inked up one of the sentiments from Snowflake Sentiments with Versa Mark ink, sprinkled it with Silver Emboss Powder and heat embossed it until smooth and shiny on a panel of Whisper White.  I used an oval Stitched Shapes die to cut it out, then adhered it to a Soft Sky scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits dies.  

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I pleated a length of Soft Sky 3/8″ Classic Weave Ribbon, adhering it at every pleat with a small amount of Tear & Tape Adhesive, then notched each end with my Paper Snips.  It was adhered to the sentiment oval with Glue Dots, then the whole oval added to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I die cut two of the snowflakes from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlets dies, adhered them with liquid glue, added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel and adhered the whole thing to the sentiment oval with a glue dot.  Finally, the whole art panel was added to the Whisper White card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the inside, I added another snowflake and a strip of the Foil Frenzy Specialty DSP to the Whisper White panel, then adhered them to a panel of Soft Sky.

Stampin’ Up! Colorful Fall for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, ready for fall?  Our colorful color challenge this week is perfect for creating fall cards!

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Colorful Seasons stamp set bundle to create the card  I am sharing today:

Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

I started by dry embossing a panel of Very Vanilla card stock with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF, then adhered it to a panel of Early Expresso card stock.  Next, I used my Stamping Sponges and sponged Garden Green and Crushed Curry onto a panel of Very Vanilla.  Then, I stamped the leaf image from Colorful Seasons in VersaMark ink onto the sponged piece, added Copper Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  The leaves were die cut using the Seasonal Layers Thinlets.  

Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

A length of 1/4′ Copper Trim was wrapped around the embossed panel and a bow was made with Linen Thread.  I frizzed the ends of the Copper Trim and used a glue dot to secure it to the front. The top and bottom leaves were popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the center one was adhered with glue.  The sentiment was stamped in Early Expresso ink, then cut out with a banner die from Bunch of Banners Framelits.  I die cut an extra banner in Crushed Curry and adhered it to either end, then popped it onto the center of the card with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally, the art panel was adhered to the Crushed Curry base and three Glitter Enamel Dots added for some bling.

Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons-Cardiology by Jari

The small leaf image was inked in Garden Green, then stamped off twice onto scrap paper.  I used a corner of my Crushed Curry ink pad and rolled the stamp over it and then stamped it onto the Very Vanilla panel.  It almost looks real, doesn’t it?

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

Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Lantern for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, and welcome to another blog hop!  I am sharing the Seasonal Lantern stamp set bundle (available tomorrow).  I know you have to be so excited to get your hands on so many new products!

 

Stampin' Up! Seasonal Lantern-Cardiology by Jari

Here is our sketch for this week:

Happy Inkin' Thursday Sketch

A panel of Very Vanilla was adhered to Cajun Craze and then to panels of Painted Autumn DSP and Lemon Lime Twist with Liquid Glue.  Then, all were popped onto the Cajun Craze card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! Seasonal Lantern Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

 

I built my lantern with Cajun Craze, Copper Foil and Very Vanilla.  Normally the center of the lantern would be cut out, but I filled it in with a piece from a lantern I cut out of Very Vanilla.  The candle, gourds, pine cone branches and bow were stamped and cut out with the coordinating Lantern Builder Framelits (available tomorrow! and bundle to save 10%).  The candle was adhered to the center of the lantern and then the “halo” of light stamped around it.  All of the decorative elements were added with glue dots and dimensionals.  Then, the whole lantern was popped on to the center with dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Seasonal Lantern Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

The sentiment was stamped in Cajun Craze and then either end was punched with my Banner Triple Punch and adhered to the front with dimensionals.  A length of Linen Thread was wrapped around the stem of a small Copper Foil leaf die cut from the Seasonal Layers Thinlets and finished off with a bow for the final touch.  

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

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.  

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

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.  

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

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.

Watercolor Words Birthday for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Watercolor Words and Birthday Banners stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to create my card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop today.  

Stampin' Up1 Watercolor Words-Cardiology by Jari

Our sketch

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop Sketch

 

I started with a panel of Night of Navy card stock that I dry embossed with the Polka Dot Basics Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Then, I  adhered it to my Whisper White card base with liquid glue.  Next, I adhered a panel of Naturally Eclectic Designer Series paper to a panel of Lemon Lime Twist and popped it onto the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Have you noticed that I really like Lemon Lime Twist?!!

Stampin' Up! Watercolor Words-Cardiology by Jari

 

Next, I stamped hooray, from Watercolor Words, in VersaMark ink onto a panel of Lemon Lime Twist, sprinkled on White Emboss Powder and heat embossed it till smooth and shiny. For the border that peeks out from the sentiment panel, I cut two scalloped panels from Night of Navy using the die from the Seasonal Layers Framelits.  They were adhered to the back of the sentiment panel with liquid glue and then to the DSP panel with more glue.  I stamped the banner and sentiment from Birthday Banners in Night of Navy and cut it with the small die from the Bunch of Banners dies.  

Stampin' Up! Watercolor Words-Cardiology by Jari

 

 I stamped the balloon image from Birthday Banners once in Night of Navy and once in Lemon Lime Twist and punched them out with my Balloon Bouquet Punch.  Then, I drew some balloon strings with my Night of Navy marker and tied a length of Whisper White Baker’s Twine around a length of Silver Mini Sequin Trim and made a bow.  It was attached to the balloon with a glue dot and the balloons added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the balloon and then some Metallic Enamel Shapes to the sentiment banner for a little more bling!

Stampin' Up! Watercolor Words-Cardiology by Jari

I pulled out the Stylized Birthday stamp for the inside and stamped it in Night of Navy on the Lemon Lime Twist inside panel.  Don’t you just love how all of the stamps worked together with Watercolor Words to create this fun birthday card for today?

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

Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

The Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle from the 2017 Annual Catalog has really been a favorite of mine.  So, I pulled it out again for the card I am sharing with you today.

Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

 

And here is the color challenge:

Happy Inkin thursday color challenge-Happy Birthday Gorgeous bundle

I have to be honest with you, I really struggled with these colors this week, even though Stampin’ Up! has provided Designer Series Paper to match our challenge!  I tend to go for more bold colors in my projects!  

I started by adhering a panel of Vellum to the Soft Sky Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper with a little liquid glue in the center of the panel.  I knew it would be covered by my other elements and the glue would not show!  Then I adhered that panel to a panel of Soft Sky card stock with liquid glue.  

Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I punched a strip of Blushing Bride and one of the Fabulous Foil DSP with my Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and adhered them in the center with a little liquid glue.  Once again, I knew the glue would not show.  I wrapped a length of Gold 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon around the Soft Sky panel and through the tag and tied a bow, securing it to the back with a little tape and popped it onto my Very Vanilla Thick card stock base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The stamping came next, first with the sentiment from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle in VersaMark ink, embossed with Gold Emboss Powder and heat embossed.  The sentiment was die cut with an oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and matted to a little larger Gold Foil scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  The flower images from Happy Birthday Gorgeous were stamped in Blushing Bride and Soft Sky and the leaves in Lemon Lime Twist.  All were fussy cut with my Paper Snips, then added with liquid glue and dimensionals.  A banner was created using a Blushing Bride pattern from the Bundle of Love DSP and my Banner Triple Punch.  The banner was adhered to the sentiment oval and then popped onto the front of the card with dimensionals.  Three enamel shapes finished off the front.

I wanted you to see the inside closely, so I turned it sideways!  I used the Happy Birthday Thinlets, which are part of the Happy Birthday Bundle, to die cut a Blushing Bride and Gold Foil sentiment.  I offset them slightly so that the Blushing Bride showed a little and glued them carefully with small dots of liquid glue.  I waited just a little and adhered them so that the glue would not smash and seep out because it dries shiny and doesn’t look nice on your finished project!  More of my fussy cut flowers and a strip of the same DSP used in my banner were added to the Very Vanilla inside panel before gluing it to my card base.  Enjoy!

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

Stampin’ Up! Petal Garden for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Time for another sketch challenge, and I took advantage of the beautiful Petal Garden Designer Series paper by Stampin’ Up! to create my card for today.  

Stampin' Up! Petal Garden-Cardiology by Jari

 

And, here is our sketch:

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop 

I think this Petal Garden Designer Series Paper is just perfect for our sketch this week.  Beautiful results with very little work!  A panel of Rich Razzleberry card stock and the Petal Garden DSP were adhered at an angle and then popped onto the Pool Party card stock base with some Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Petal Garden-Cardiology by Jari

The sentiment is from the Birthday Blooms stamp set and was stamped in VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Gold Emboss powder.  I used the die from the Lovely Laurels Thinlets to create the label.  The Sweet Sugarplum banner was punched on one end with the Banner Triple Punch.  I cut a length of the Old Olive 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon and wound it in an S pattern, secured it with some Glue Dots and popped the label over it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On to the inside panel.  

Stampin' Up! Petal Garden-Cardiology by Jari

The large rose image stamp from the Birthday Blooms stamp set resembles the rose buds on the front of the card, so I decided to use a part of it for the lower corner.  I used the ink to rubber method, where I used Stampin’ Write Markers to color the stamp, then huffed on it a few times to create some more moisture and stamped.  More of the Old Olive ribbon was adhered with little dabs of Liquid Multipurpose Glue and finally, an inside sentiment was added.  It is also found in the Birthday Blooms set.  

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

Carols of Christmas for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Inkin’ Thursday!  My share for today is from the Carols of Christmas stamp set bundle from Stampin’ Up!  

Our colors for the week: Soft Suede, Soft Sky and Pear Pizzaz 

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop color challenge

Stampin' Up! Carols of Christmas

The Carols of Christmas Bundle will be available for purchase on August 1st.  But, you could get the stamp set for free now just by joining Stampin’ Up!  Then, use your Bonus Coupons to purchase the Card Front Builder Thinlets Dies in August.  See more details in the Christmas in July information later in my post.  

I started with a panel of Soft Sky card stock and used the Card Front Builder Thinlets to cut out the moon and stars at the top.  A panel of Dazzling Diamonds Designer Series Paper was adhered to the back with some Liquid Multipurpose Glue. Stampin' Up! Carol of Christmas-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I dry embossed a panel of Soft Suede card stock with the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and adhered it to the Soft Sky panel with liquid glue.  The trees were die cut from Pear Pizzaz, topped with some glue from my Fine Tip Glue Pen and sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  I set them aside to dry and stamped two deer using the deer stamp from Carols of Christmas in Soft Suede ink.  They were cut out using the coordinating die from the bundle.  

Stampin' Up! Carols of Christmas-Cardiology by Jari

The snow bank was created with the swirly die from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlets from more Dazzling Diamonds DSP. Two of the trees were adhered to the Soft Suede panel, then I added the snow bank with more liquid glue.  The trees in the foreground were added with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the deer with liquid glue.  

A length of Soft Sky 3/8″ Classic Weave Ribbon was adhered to the front with Tear & Tape Adhesive and the art panel popped onto the Soft Sky card stock base with dimensionals. I masked off the bottom half of the sentiment stamp with some tape, inked it in VersaMark, sprinkled on White Emboss Powder and heat embossed it onto a panel of Soft Sky.  Layering Ovals Framelits and Stitched Shapes Framelits were used to cut out the sentiment panel and mats.

Stampin' Up! Carols of Christmas-Cardiology by JariI stamped the snowflake image from the Christmas Pines stamp set in Soft Sky onto a panel of Whisper White, then stamped the sentiment, also from Christmas Pines,  in Pear Pizzaz over them.  Another glittered Pear Pizzaz tree was adhered with glue and then the whole panel adhered to the base with liquid glue.  Enjoy!

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

Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Inkin’ Thursday, everyone!  I am sharing a card created with one of the new stamps sets called Happy Birthday Gorgeous, from the 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog that goes live today!  Can you believe it is June 1st?  I know there are a lot of happy people out there who have been waiting (not so patiently, I bet) to place an order.  So glad you joined us, we are all excited, too!  

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous-Cardiology by Jari

 

Our challenge this week was to use the following colors:  

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 

The inspiration for my sketch is from Hand Stamped Sentiments HSS #265

Hand Stamped Sentiments #265

My card base is Old Olive with a panel of Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper adhered to the left side with some liquid glue.  Aren’t you glad you can order this paper today?  Ordering begins after 12:00 Mountain Time.  Yay!

I stamped a panel of Whisper White card stock with the splatter stamp from Touches of Texture in Old Olive ink.  I wanted it to be a subtle color, so I stamped off twice on scrap paper.  

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I stamped the flower pods and stems in Rich Razzleberry, then the leaves in Old Olive. The flowers in Happy Birthday Gorgeous are 2-step stamps, so I stamped first in Rich Razzleberry.  The second stamping was in Pool Party that had been stamped off twice.  I fussy cut all of the flower heads and set them aside.  Then, I inked up the sentiment in Rich Razzleberry and stamped it on the bottom of my art panel.  The art panel was framed with a panel of Old Olive card stock 

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous-Cardiology by Jari

The small flowers were adhered to the art panel with some liquid glue, and then the larger ones added with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Several  Pearls were added for a little bling, and the whole art panel popped onto the front with Dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous-Cardiology by Jari

My original plan was to add the Happy Birthday sentiment to the front of the card, but I wasn’t happy with that, so I decided to add it and some of the flowers to the inside.  

A complete list of supplies as well as card stock cuts for my Happy Birthday Gorgeous birthday card will be at the end of the post.
