Stampin’ Up! Pedal Pusher Encouragement Card

My share for today is from the Stampin’ Up! Pedal Pusher stamp set from the Sale-a Bration catalog.  Love, love, love  this stamp set!  

Pedal Pusher from Stampin' Up!

This stamp set, even if not free, would be one of my favorites.  If you haven’t ordered yours yet, remember the last day of Sale-a-Bration is March 31st.  Don’t wait till the last minute…..

I started by stamping the “ground”  with a stamp from the Sheltering Tree stamp set in Tip Top Taupe.  I stamped it off once before stamping it onto a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Next, the bicycle from Pedal Pusher was stamped in Basic Black archival ink and then colored in with Stampin’ Write markers.  The basket, flowers, and flag were also stamped first in Basic Black, then colored in with markers, too.

Then, I cut a panel of Sweet Li’l Things DSP (clouds) and attached it to the art piece with MP liquid glue.  This was then glued to a panel of Pool Party card stock and a length of Pool Party 1/4″ ribbon was attached with Tear and Tape adhesive, then the bow attached with a glue dot.  I added dimensionals and then popped it onto the So Saffron card base.

For the inside, I repeated part of the bicycle image from Pedal Pusher and added a cloud from the Sprinkles of Life stamp set.

Honeycomb Happiness is such a cute set of stamps, and the chick is really versatile-not just for Easter, but would be really cute for all sorts of Easter paper projects.  Party Pants has so many perfect sayings and it coordinates with the Balloon Bouquet Punch (which I used).  Click here to see the newest flyer for Sale-a-Bration and the newest free products!

Making this card takes no time, either, which is a plus when you need a birthday card in a flash!  I stamped the chick from Honeycomb Happiness first onto a panel of Whisper White with Basic Black ink, then again on a panel of Crushed Curry.  I snipped out the Crushed Curry chick, cutting off the feet, and attached the body to the Whisper White panel with glue, then colored in the feet and beak with my Tangelo Twist Stampin’ Write marker.  I stamped the sentiment from Party Pants onto a piece of Mint Macaron with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed it with White embossing powder.  Once cool and set, I punched out the balloon using the Balloon Bouquet Punch.

I used a fun stamp from Watercolor Words for the inside sentiment and added some Mint Macaron Designer Washi Tape.  And, for fun, I decorated the envelope front with the balloon image from the Stampin’ Up! Party Pants stamp set.

Stampin’ Up! Botanicals for You for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

1424388_1316812531678652_7544545586417585175_n

 

We are so glad you joined us today for our Happy Stampers color challenge! For my share, I am using the Stampin’ Up! Botanicals for You stamp set, from the Sale-a-Bration catalog, and a lot of help from the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper.  When you have such beautiful paper to play with, you need to showcase it once in a while, don’t you think?

Stampin' Up! Botanicals for You

 

We are working with these colors today:

12241768_1305622122797693_8981835550585165024_n

If you’re looking for a quick and easy card, this one is it!  Of course, there is a little fussy cutting-so some of you may not think that is so quick or easy, but trust me, this one is not too difficult!   I started by fussy cutting a flower image from the Birthday Bouquet DSP, then added some seed pearls to the center.

Botanicals for You Stampin' Up Sale-a-BrationNext  I chose the sentiment stamp from Botanicals for You minus one of the words.  I covered the word Just with tape, inked the rest of the stamp in Mossy Meadow, removed the tape, and stamped onto a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I used a banner die from Banners Framelits and cut out the sentiment, then bordered it with another banner in Mossy Meadow card stock.  The fussy cut flower was then attached to the banner with Multipurpose Liquid glue.

Stampin' Up! Botanicals for You by Card-iology by Jari

I layered some of the Birthday Bouquet DSP onto a panel of Mossy Meadow with MP glue, then adhered that layer to the Blushing Bride card base with MP glue.  A Tea Lace Paper Doily was glued to the front, then I cut a length of Blushing Bride Sequin Trim and secured it to the front with the Dimensionals I used to attach the banner/sentiment panel. Easy, easy!

Stampin' Up! Botanicals for You by Card-iology by Jari

The inside sentiment was also stamped with the Botanicals for You stamp set, and I used more of the DSP to trim the bottom.  The Stampin’ Up! Botanicals for You stamp set is FREE during Sale-a-Bration.  What a fun set to have.  If you have followed my blog for a while, you may have noticed that I have used this set quite a bit-I do love it!!

I finished it up by adding an envelope liner to compliment the card:

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Fields Sale-a-Bration Note Cards

As promised, I am sharing the two other note cards from the set of 4 I have made using Stampin’ Up!  Flowering Fields, one of the FREE stamp sets from the Stampin’ Up!  Sale-a-Bration catalog.  I love the coordinating DSP, too!  It is called Wildflower Fields.

 

Stampin' Up! Flowering Fields by Cardiology by Jari

 

And here are the first two I shared on Monday:

Stampin' Up Flowering Fields by Card-iology by Jari

These really would make a nice gift for someone-especially a little hostess gift or teacher appreciation gift.

 

Stampin' Up! Flowering Fields by Cardiology by Jari

First I stamped the leaf images onto a piece of Whisper White card stock. I didn’t want them to overpower the other colorful flowers, so I stamped off once using Old Olive ink.  The flower image that matches the DSP was stamped with Basic Black archival ink, then colored with Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers. This sentiment is from Bloomin’ love, stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink.  The butterfly was also stamped with the Basic Black ink and colored with Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral Markers, then fussy cut and popped onto the panel with a small piece of a Dimensional.  Old Olive Baker’s Twine was wrapped around the art panel and a bow tied before popping it onto the card base with Dimensionals.

 

Stampin' Up! Flowering Fields by Cardiology by Jari

For this note card, I used another flower image from Flowering Fields, stamped in Basic Black ink, and colored in with Calypso Coral, Lost Lagoon and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers. I framed the oval art piece with the banner die from the Mini Treat Bag Framelits dies.   For the sentiment, I used another one of the FREE Sale-a-Bration stamps called Pedal Pusher. You will also find the little bird stamp in that set.  The banner stamp is from Bloomin’ Love.  I just taped over the leaf images so that they would not appear on the banner.  Just remember to remove the tape before you stamp!  This advice comes from someone who did not do that once and ruined her art piece.  🙂  I used the banner die from the Large Numbers Framelits to cut it and then popped it on the front with Dimensionals.

You still have time to get this awesome set, Flowering Fields, during Sale-a-Bration, but don’t wait too long, or it will be gone forever.

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Fields Sale-a-Bration Note Cards

Happy Monday to you!  My share for today is from the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Fields Sale-a-Bration stamp set.  You can never have too many note cards on hand, and since I had not made any lately, today was the day.  In fact, I made 4 cards, but am sharing only 2 of them in this post.  I’ll share the other two with you next time.

I love how easily these note cards went together by using the Flowering Fields stamp set and coordinating paper!

 

Stampin' Up! Flowering Fields by Card-iology by Jari

I added the bee from the Stampin’ Up! Garden in Bloom stamp set and the sentiment stamp is from another one of the free Sale-a-Bration sets called Party Pants.  I used Calypso Coral, Old Olive and Hello Honey Stampin’ Write Markers to color the flowers, leaves and the bee after I had first stamped them with Basic Black archival ink.  The sentiment was stamped with Basic Black ink, too.

 

Stampin' Up! Flowering Fields by Card-iology by Jari

 

I stamped the flower from Flowering Fields first with Basic Black archival ink, then colored in the leaves and blooms with Old Olive and Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write Markers.  The sentiment, from Another Thank You, from Stampin’ Up!, was stamped in Basic Black archival ink, too.

Stampin’ Up! Pedal Pusher Happy Birthday

I used the Stampin’ Up! Pedal Pusher Sale-a-Bration stamp set for my card to share with you today.

 

Stampin' Up! Pedal Pusher Happy Birthday by Cardiology by Jari

Stampin’ Up! just released this stamp set, Pedal Pusher, as a new limited time product during Sale-a-Bration.  Wow, don’t you love it?  Especially since it is free with any purchase of $50. before tax and shipping!!  If you haven’t seen the new releases, just click here to take a look.  And, watch a video on the Pedal Pusher set to get some more inspiration!   Don’t wait too long to get this set-March 31st is the last day, or while supplies last.

I started with the bicycle built for two from Pedal Pusher, and stamped it in Memento Black ink, then colored it with my Stampin’ Write markers.  It was then fussy cut with Paper Snips.

Stampin' Up! Pedal Pusher Birthday card by Card-iology by Jari

I actually used one of the other new stamp sets from Sale-a-Bration called Party Pants, for the sentiment on balloon on front.  Tne balloons were punched with the new Balloon Bouquet punch. I love it because it will punch two sizes of balloons!   I stamped the Melon Mambo one with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed it with White embossing powder, then gave all of the balloons some depth with my uni-ball gel Signo pen.

The card layers are from It’s My Party DSP, and the card base is Melon Mambo.  The Baker’s Twine combo pack colors of Melon Mambo/Basic Black and Mint Macaron/ Basic Black tie in so nicely with this paper for the balloon strings.

Stampin' Up! Pedal Pusher Birthday card by Card-iology by JariSo, for the inside, I used yet again another stamp set, Party Wishes, for these balloons and strings. (Watch a video here on Party Pants.)

The sentiment is also from the new Sale-a-Bration Party Pants set.  It’s fun mixing it up with all of Stampin’ Up! birthday themed stamps!  The colors, Melon Mambo, Mint Macaron and Crushed Curry were also used to tie it all together.

 

Card stock cuts in inches, will be at the end of the post.

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

My card for the hop today is from the Stampin’ Up! Botanicals for You stamp set. This set is only available for a short time during Sale-a- Bration.  I am loving it, because it coordinates with the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies and the Botanical Blooms stamp set!

Stampin' Up! Botanicals for You by Cardiology by Jari

Today was a color challenge:

Happy Stampers Blog Hop Challenge January 28, 2016

This is really a quick and easy card using the FREE Stampin’ Up! Botanicals for You stamp set from the 2016 Sale-a-Bration catalog.  Just purchase $50 dollars of Stampin’ Up! items and receive this set or any of a host of other wonderful items for Free !

Stampin' Up! Botanicals for You by Cardiology by Jari

I used the leaf die from the Botanical Builders Framelits to cut the one side of my Whisper White panel.  Then, I cut a piece of Mint Macron to fill in the negative space of the leaf, and attached it to the underside with some glue from my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  Next, I stamped the large sentiment with Basic Black Archival ink and began to add the flowers and leaves with Melon Mango, Crushed Curry and Mint Macaron inks.

Stampin' Up! Botanicals for You by Cardiology by JariThe Whisper White panel was then attached to the Melon Mambo card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I used the stamp set, Butterfly Basics, also from Stampin’ Up!, to add the two small butterflies to the front.  They were attached with Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Botanicals for You by Cardiology by Jari

To finish the card, I chose one of the other sentiments from Botanicals for You and stamped it in Basic Black archival ink.  The Crushed Curry butterfly is from Butterfly Basics, and the flower in Mint Macaron and Melon Mambo  from Botanicals for You from Stampin’ Up!

Card measurements in inches and products used will be found at the end of the post.
