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.

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. 

Here is a helpful tutorial on how to order your Stamparatus on the 5thStamparatus

Stampin’ Up! Party Pandas for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

It’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday and I used the Party Pandas stamp set from the upcoming Sale-A-Bration flyer and Watercolor Christmas to create a fun Christmas card for our color challenge today.  

 

Stampin' Up! Party Pandas-CardiologybyJari

 

The inspiration for my sketch is from the Paper Players Challenge #372

 

I am in love with this stamp set, it is so cute!  And it is FREE during Sale-A-Bration, which begins January 3rd.  I stamped the panda in Basic Black Archival ink and fussy cut it out with Paper Snips, then colored in the heart with a Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker.  

Next, I stamped the sentiment from Watercolor Christmas in Cherry Cobbler ink and used the Layering Ovals Framelits to cut it out.  A scalloped oval was used as a mat in Cherry Cobbler card stock.  

Stampin' Up! Party Pandas-CardiologybyJari

 

I adhered the Merry Little Christmas DSP (tree pattern) to a panel of Basic Black card stock with liquid glue.  The plaid panel of Merry Little Christmas DSP was matted to a narrow panel of Basic Black, then adhered to the larger panel with liquid glue.  A length of Cherry Cobbler 1/4″ Double Stitched Ribbon was adhered with Tear & Tape Adhesive and that panel was popped onto the Old Olive card stock base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  A bow was created with Old Olive Bakers Twine and secured to the front with a Glue Dot.  Finally, I popped the panda and sentiment panel onto the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added one Metallic Enamel Shape heart to complete the front.

Get ready to add Party Pandas to your wish list!  Here is a sneak peek of the whole set:

Stampin’ Up! Tasty Trucks for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I used Tasty Trucks,  from the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration flyer, for my share for our blog hop today.  This food truck is so cute and I love its versatility!  And, it was FREE!  

 

Trucks

 

 Here is our color challenge:

Happy Inkin' Thursday color challenge

These colors are really fun, and just happen to be included in the Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series paper.  So that part was pretty easy.  I decided to use the Tasty Trucks stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration flyer because I think it is so cute.  I started by stamping the truck in Basic Black Archival ink onto a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Then, I pulled out my Crumb Cake, Watermelon Wonder and Pool Party ink pads and a Blender Pen.  I pressed down on the lids quite a bit before opening so that some of the ink would transfer to the top cover.  Then, I used this ink to “color” in the truck with my blender pen.

TrucksNext, I die cut the truck image with one of the largest circles in the Layering Circles Framelits collection.  The Watermelon Wonder frame was die cut with the largest Scalloped Circle Framelits die and attached with liquid glue.  I stamped another awning from the truck image and two sets of flags.  Once they were colored with my blender pen and ink, I fussy cut them out.  The awning was attached with small pieces of Dimensionals, and the Pool Party flags added with a little dab of liquid glue.  The popsicles were cut out of the Tasty Treats DSP and added with Dimensionals.  

Trucks

I noticed the wheels needed some hubcaps, so I added two Pool Party Enamel Shapes to finish off the truck.  The sentiment was stamped in Basic Black Archival ink and die cut with the smallest banner in the Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies.  A second banner was cut in Pool Party, cut in half and attached to either end of the Whisper White one  with liquid glue.  The card base is Watermelon Wonder with panels of Pool Party and Tasty Treats Specialty DSP layered and attached with Dimensionals.  A strip of Watermelon Wonder striped card stock from Tasty Treats and two banners from another pattern in the Tasty Treats DSP were added with liquid glue and the art panel and sentiment panel popped on with Dimensionals.  

Trucks

For the inside, I added a strip of the Watermelon Wonder stripe onto a panel of Whisper White and left room for a handwritten note.  

A complete list of supplies and card stock cuts in inches for my Tasty Trucks card will be at the end of my post.
