Stampin’ Up! Beautiful You for the Happy Stampers

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Welcome to this Thursday edition of the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  I am sharing a sneak peek of Beautiful You, from the upcoming 2017 Occasions Catalog from Stampin’ Up, available on January 4th.  

 

Beautiful You

 

And, if you follow the Happy Stampers, you know this week is a color challenge:

 

Happy Stampers Blog Hop color challenge

 

I fell in love with Beautiful You the minute I saw it at OnStage Atlanta in November!  Is is such a cool set of stamps.  I know you will love it, too.  By now, you have probably seen it out on Pinterest, but I know you will see more of it very soon.  You can use water coloring, as I did, or Stampin’ write Markers, or the new Watercolor Pencils available January 4th, to color in your images.  I have seen some cards, though, with just the outline of the woman stamped that are just as beautiful as the colored in ones.  

 

Beautiful You

I stamped the image in Stazon Black ink onto Water Color paper.  Once dry, I used my Dapper Denim and Aqua Painter to color the skirt and dress.  Next, I  water colored the hat with Emerald Envy. I left a little “shadow” of both colors to the left of the dress and hat, then colored a little on the ground with Emerald Envy.

 

Beautiful You

 

The Beautiful You sentiment was stamped onto a panel of watercolor paper in Stazon Black ink.  I then water colored with Emerald Envy over the larger words.  Once it was dry, I used an oval Stitched Shapes Framelit Die to cut it out. The ribbon is 3/8″ Emerald Envy Silky Taffeta from the combo pack, on sale now for $4.50!  

 

Beautiful You

I used another of the sentiments from Beautiful You and stamped it also in Stazon Black ink.  I added a little water color wash over it using some of the Emerald Envy and Dapper Denim inks again.  

Card stock cuts in inches and products used are at the end of the post.

Stampin’ Up! Bloomin’ Love for the Happy Stampers Team Hop

11960226_1268896359803603_8583437756952711798_n

Today’s Happy Stampers Team Blog hop features a color challenge for the last day of 2015:

12096205_1282833705076535_3973718640053185818_n

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Bloomin’ Love stamp set and the coordinating Bloomin’ Heart Thinlet Dies available on January 5th,  to create my card for today.

Bloomin' Love Card-iology by JariDon’t you just love the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper?  It really adds some pizzaz to your projects!   The Bloomin’ Heart Thinlet Die (Heart) was my starting point.  After the heart, I used the two flower dies included in the set to create my Real Red and Whisper White flowers.

Bloomin' Love Card-iology by JariBefore die-cutting the flowers, I stamped Real Red ink onto the Real Red and Whisper White cardstocks using the flower stamps in the Bloomin’ Love stamp set.  Next, I stamped the banner from the set in Soft Suede and then stamped the sentiment, also from Bloomin’ Love, in Real Red ink.  The banner coordinates with the new Large Numbers Framelets Dies also available January 5th!

Bloomin' Love Card-iology by JariI added some small Pearl Basic Jewels to the center of the flowers and then punched 5 small hearts with my heart punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack in more of the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper. Two of those hearts went on the outside, and the other three went inside.

Bloomin' Love Card-iology by Jari

The inside sentiment is also from Bloomin’ Love, and is stamped in Real Red onto Whisper White.  I know you are going to add this new bundle to your wish list for January 5th! The Bloomin’ Love stamp set and Bloomin’ Heart Thinlet Dies come in a bundle so that you can save 15%.  Isn’t that wonderful?!!  You will also want to check out the new Big Shot Die Brush-you can easily remove your die cut pieces with this great new tool.

Stampin’ Up! Party Wishes Birthday Card

I used the Party Wishes stamp set and the Party Punch Pack from the 2016 Occasions Catalog for my birthday card for today:

PartyWishes Card-iology by Jari

The Cherry on Top DSP helps to make this card quick and easy to put together!  I added a panel of the balloon DSP onto the Watermelon Wonder card base with multipurpose liquid glue then worked on the sentiment.

PartyWishes Card-iology by Jari

I cut out a circle with my Circles Framelits Dies and stamped the candles from the Party Wishes set which had been inked with Pool Party and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write markers.  I used the XOXO stamp from the new Bloomin’ Love set also available in January.  The balloons and string are also from the Party Wishes set and were stamped with Watermelon Wonder, Pool Party and Bermuda Bay inks-the balloon strings stamped with Daffodil Delight ink.  I then punched the balloons out with the new balloon punch from the Party Punch Pack.  It includes the balloon, a cupcake and candle punch and is available as a bundle (save 15%)with the Party Wishes stamp set.

PartyWishes Card-iology yby Jari

The banner is stamped with happy birthday from the Birthday Blossom stamp set in Watermelon Wonder ink.  Now for the inside:
