Stampin’ Up! Background Bits Thank You

Today, I am sharing three very quick and easy thank you cards I created with the Background Bits Host stamp set, from Stampin’ Up!  

Stampin' Up! Background Bits-Cardiology by Jari

I pulled out three of the Whisper White Note Cards and Envelopes and Backgound Bits to start.  When you host a party, you are eligible to purchase the host exclusive sets found in the catalog on pages 220-223 of the Annual Catalog. Don’t live close enough to me for a party in your home?  Well, email me about hosting your own catalog party.

I just love the new 2017-2019 In Colors, especially Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst and Fresh Fig, so I chose to use them in these simple thank you cards.  

Stampin' Up! Background Bits-Cardiology by Jari

I stamped the single flower image from Background Bits in Lemon Lime Twist and Fresh Fig using the ink to rubber method.  This is where you apply ink to your stamp using Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut out the image using a Stitched Shapes Framelits square and matted it with a little larger scalloped Layering Squares Thinlet in a panel from Fresh Florals Designer Series paper.  Next, I cut a length of Lemon Lime Twist 1/2″ Fine Woven Ribbon, notched the ends with Paper Snips and adhered it to the back of my squares with some Tear & Tape Adhesive.  I dry fit the art panel and used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the sentiment, also from Background Bits.  Finally, I adhered the art square with ribbon attached to the front of the note card with more Tear & Tape and some Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the next two cards, I chose to flip the cards vertically and used Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst inks and coordinating paper from the Fresh Florals DSP.   Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist 1/2″ Woven Ribbon lengths were added behind each art panel as described above.

Stampin’ Up! Rose Wonder for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Rose Wonder stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create the card I am sharing with you today.  I was inspired by a card I saw in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog and knew I wanted to try it.  My challenge was to fit in the colors we are working with today!  

Color challenge for Happy Inkin' Thursday

I had no problem with the Old Olive and the Calypso Coral, but adding the Pool Party, well, I had to get a little creative!

Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder-Cardiology by Jari

 

I started with a panel of watercolor paper and did a water color wash in Pool Party ink using my Aqua Painter.  Next, I stamped the large rose image from Rose Wonder in Versa Mark ink onto a panel of Vellum card stock.  Then, I sprinkled it with White Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I pulled out my Old Olive and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Markers and colored in the rose on the back side of the Vellum.  Some parts were colored in darker than others, which gives it some dimension.  It takes a little while for the ink to dry, so if you try this, make sure you wait before adhering the vellum to anything.  

Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder-Cardiology by Jari

 

While waiting for the water colored paper and vellum to dry, I stamped the sentiment, also from Rose Wonder, in Pool Party onto Whisper White.  The sentiment was die cut with a die from the Layering Ovals Framelits and matted with a little larger scalloped oval from the same collection of framelits.  

Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder-Cardiology by Jari

Very carefully, I dotted small dots of liquid glue onto the back of the rose and leaves (along the white lines) and adhered it to the water colored panel.  If you’re not careful, the glue will show through and look glossy when dry.  The art panel was then adhered to a panel of Old Olive with liquid glue.  I cut a length of Pool Party Shimmer ribbon, notched either end and adhered it to the art panel with Tear & Tape Adhesive.  Next, I popped the art panel onto the Whisper White thick card stock with dimensionals, then added the sentiment ovals with dimensionals.  Three pearls were then added for some bling. 

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


Now, for more of the hop!  Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Background Bits Sneak Peek for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I’m sharing a sneak peek of the Host set, Background Bits, from the upcoming 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog today.  

Stampin' Up! Background Bits-Cardiology by Jari

 

Here is our sketch

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop sketch challenge

I started by adhering a panel of Color Theory DSP (available June 1st) onto a panel of Old Olive card stock.  Next, I cut a scalloped square panel from Delightful Daisy DSP (available June 1st) and adhered it to the Old Olive panels with liquid glue.  I stamped the script image stamp from Background Bits onto a panel of Whisper White, stamping off once each time to lighten the Old Olive ink a little.  That panel was adhered directly to the front with more liquid glue.  

Stampin' Up! Background Bits-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I used the ink to rubber method (color directly on the stamp with Stampin’ Write markers) on the flowers and stems, using Old Olive and Calypso Coral inks.  The flower grouping was die cut with a Layering Circle Framelit and framed with a Calypso Coral Scalloped Circle.

Versa Mark ink and White Emboss Powder were used for the sentiment and then heat embossed.  I used my Banner Triple Punch to punch one end, added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel and adhered it to the circles.  Finally, I popped the sentiment/art panel onto the Old Olive Layers with dimensionals, then added that whole panel to my Calypso Coral card base with more dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! Background Bits-Cardiology by Jari

The ink to rubber method was used again for the flower and stem, but for the sentiment and bottom stamp trim, I just stamped the Old Olive regularly.  

*Card stock cuts and a complete list of stamping supplies needed to create this card are at the end of the post.

Don’t you just love the images in Background Bits?  Remember, it is a new Host Exclusive Set available June 1st.

Colorful Seasons Thanks for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome back to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  My Colorful Seasons Thanks card was created with the Colorful Seasons Bundle (available June 1st).  Here are our colors for this week:

Happy Inkin' thursday blog hop color challenge

Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons Thanks-Cardiology by Jari

I started by doing a little watercolor wash in So Saffron on some Canson Watercolor Paper with my Aqua Painter. Once it was dry, I stamped Thank You, from One Big Meaning, in Early Expresso ink right onto the art panel.  Next, I die cut the tree limb from the Seasonal Layers Thinlets Dies(available June 1st as a bundle with Colorful Seasons stamp set) in Early Expresso card stock.  I used small dabs of Liquid Glue to adhere it to the art panel, then stamped the flowers.  Each of the flowers was stamped in Calypso Coral onto Whisper White Thick card stock, some full strength, and a couple of them stamped off once.  

Stampin' Up! Colorful Season Thank-Cardiology by Jari s

The flowers were adhered with Liquid Glue and Dimensionals.  The branch looked too lonely without a bird sitting on it, so I die cut the smallest bird from the Birds & Blossoms Thinlets in Early Expresso.  I cut a small piece of Calypso Coral paper to add under his wing, and punched a small circle in So Saffron for his eye.  He was then adhered to the panel with dimensionals.  The whole art panel was then popped onto the Early Expresso card stock base with dimensionals. 

 

Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons Thanks-Cardiology by Jari

Whisper White card stock was layered onto So Saffron with liquid glue, then adhered to the Early Expresso base with more liquid glue.  I adhered more of the small flowers to the corner with liquid glue and left room for writing a note.

A complete list of stamping supplies used to create the Colorful Seasons Thanks card will be at the end of the post, along with card stock cuts in inches.

Stampin’ Up! Touches of Texture Thank You

Today I am sharing Touches of Texture from the current Stampin’ Up! Annual catalog with some of the new In-Colors from the upcoming 2017-2018 Annual catalog!  

Stampin' Up! Touches of Texture-Cardiology by Jari

The sketch inspiration is from the challenge this week at Fab Friday, FabFri111

FabFri111

And, I’m using the colors for the Color Throwdown challenge, ctd440

CTD440 Color Throwdown Color Challenge

When I realized that the Touches of Texture stamp set would carry over to the new catalog, I decided to go ahead and buy it, as I have been admiring it for a long time!  Crazy, right?  Well, I am so glad I have it now, it is a great stamp set!

This card came together so quickly once I decided to try out Touches of Texture.  First, I stamped the long textured image in So Saffron onto my Whisper White panel. Next, I inked up Fresh Fig onto the splotched stamp and stamped it off twice before stamping it onto my art panel.  The Lemon Lime Twist leaves and stem came next just to the right of the first So Saffron image.  A  little extra ink smudged onto my paper to the right of the stem, so I pulled out another texture stamp and stamped a little “grass” over it.  

I inked up the open flower in Fresh Fig ink and wiped the center with a baby wipe so that I could fill the center with So Saffron ink from my Stampin’ Write marker.   

Stampin' Up! Touches of Texture-Cardiology by Jari

 

Using a blender pen and the ink from the top of the ink pad after I squeezed the lid (while closed) a few times, I colored in the flower head with Fresh Fig.  Then, I picked up some ink from the So Saffron ink lid and blended the center of my flower a little.  The bee was stamped in Basic Black Archival ink and colored in with my Daffodil Delight Watercolor Pencil.  Then I cut it out with my Paper Snips and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

 

Stampin' Up! Touches of Texture

My art panel was adhered to a panel of Lemon Lime Twist card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The  Fresh Fig banner was cut on one end with my Banner Triple punch, inked with the Thank You stamp from the Daisy Delight stamp set(available June 1st) in Versa Mark and sprinkled with White Stampin’ Emboss powder.  The banner was adhered to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then I added 3 So Saffron Enamel Shapes.  The whole front panel was then adhered to the Fresh Fig card stock base with Dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! Touches of Texture-Cardiology by Jari

More of the textured images were stamped on the inside in So Saffron and Fresh Fig ink, then I chose another sentiment from Daisy Delight and stamped it in Basic Black Archival ink.  

Stamping supplies as well as card stock cuts for creating this Touches of Texture Thank You card will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! So Very Much and Avant Garden

I used the Sale-A-Bration So Very Much and Avant Garden stamp sets to create my card to share with you today.  I cannot believe we have only one week left for Sale-A-Bration, wow, the time has flown!  Many of the Free items have already sold out, make sure to check below.  Remember for every  $50 you spend, you get one free gift.  Don’t wait!

 

Stampin' Up! So Very Much and Avant Garden by Cardiology by Jari

This is a really quick and simple card to create.  First, I snailed a panel of Cupcakes & Carousels DSP to my Peekaboo Peach card stock base.  Then, I stamped Thank You in Early Expresso ink onto a Very Vanilla card stock panel.  I knew I wanted the flowers from Avant Garden to have depth, so I created a mask first.  That was done by stamping one flower onto a sticky note near the sticky end, and cutting it out with my Paper Snips.  Then I was ready to begin stamping on the Very Vanilla panel.  

Stampin' Up! So Very Much and Avant Garden Cardiology by Jari

 

I stamped the So Saffron flower on the right side first, then covered it with the mask I had created.  I  cleaned my stamp and stamped the lower and upper flowers in Peekaboo Peach ink, making sure my mask was still where I originally placed it.  The opposite side was done in the same fashion with my sticky note mask.  All of the flower centers were stamped in Early Expresso ink.  The smaller sentiment was also stamped in Early Expresso onto a strip of So Saffron and die cut with a banner die.  

Stampin' Up! So Very Much and Avant Garden Cardiology by Jari

A small length of Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon was notched at either end and bunched up with some Linen Thread to embellish the top, with some Peekaboo Peach Enamel Shapes added to the opposite side.  The art panel was framed with Peekaboo Peach and then popped onto the base with Dimensionals.  

For the inside of the card, I added more of the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP from the front to my Very Vanilla panel and left room to write a note.   Don’t let So Very Much and Avant Garden get away before you get your hands on them! 

A complete list of supplies and card stock cuts to re-create this card will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Basket Bunch Thank You

Today I am sharing the Basket Bunch Bundle from Stampin’ Up!  I just received this bundle last Sunday from my up-line, Amy, and have been dying to try it out.  Have I told you how much I love our quarterly team meetings?  We get together for lunch, have a business meeting, make projects and then receive prizes!  Woo-hoo!  I’d really love to have you on my team, you’d love it, too!  Make sure you get in touch with me if you are interested.

I made a Basket Bunch Thank You card on a Whisper White Note Card.

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Bundle Thank You by Cardiology by Jari

 

I started with a Crumb Cake panel that I dry embossed with the Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, then snailed it to a panel of Wild Wasabi card stock.  Next, I adhered a panel of the Carried Away DSP (free while supplies last during Sale-A-Bration) to a panel of Peekaboo Peach card stock.  Using the Basket Builder Framelits Dies, I cut out two bunches of grass in Wild Wasabi and attached it to the Peekaboo Peach panel.  A length of Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon was adhered to the bottom and the back with Tear & Tape Adhesive.

Next, I stamped the rabbit and carrot images from Basket Bunch in Memento Black ink.  This ink does not stain the photopolymer stamps as much as other inks do.  I used a Blender Pen and carefully colored in the rabbit with Crumb Cake ink, making sure not to get it too wet.  I used Stampin’ Write Markers to color in the rest of the images.and then cut them all out with the dies.  The sentiment was stamped in Versa Mark, sprinkled with Gold Emboss Powder and heat embossed.  The banners were cut with the die from the Popcorn Box Thinlets.

For the inside of my card, I stamped the grass in Wild Wasabi along the bottom of a panel of Whisper White.  I stamped the rabbit and the carrot in Memento Black ink and colored them in with Stampin’ Write Markers.  The sentiment was stamped in Peekaboo Peach.  So, how do you like it?  I know if you haven’t added the Basket Bunch Bundle to your stash, you really must consider it.  You’ll be seeing me post more with this set!

Stampin’ Up! Lift Me Up for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Stampin’ Up! Lift Me Up Bundle and the FREE Sale-A-Bration Carried Away DSP, to create my share for today.  Don’t you just love this time of year when you can earn so many wonderful FREE products from Stampin’ Up!  

 

Lift Me Up Bundle Cardiology by Jari

 

We had a sketch to challenge us this week:Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop sketch challenge

 

I started by cutting out the large NIght of Navy hot air balloon from the Up & Away Thinletswhich are a part of the Lift Me Up Bundle.  Next, I die cut the pieces for the peek through colors on the balloon.  There are 6 die pieces and I used Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder, and Peekaboo Peach from top to bottom, repeating the colors in the same order. Next, I stamped the smallest hot air balloon in Peekaboo Peach onto Whisper White and die cut it.  I stamped the Thank You sentiment in Versa Mark onto Watermelon Wonder and heat embossed it with White Emboss Powder.  I was also die cut, then popped onto the balloon with a dimensional.

 

Lift Me Up Bundle Cardiology by Jari

 

The Whisper White individual clouds were then stamped in Mint Macaron, die cut and set aside.  My card base is Watermelon Wonder.  The next layer consists of some Carried Away DSP adhered to a panel of Mint Macaron, then popped onto the base with Dimensionals.  The smaller center panel is another pattern of Carried Away DSP (clouds), adhered to a panel of Mint Macaron.  It was also popped onto the card front with Dimensionals.  

 

Lift Me Up Bundle Cardiology by Jari

Once all of the layers were secured, i added the hot air balloons and the clouds with Dimensionals.  I filled in the largest balloon with some Rhinestone Basic Jewels for some bling, and the front was complete.  The inside of the card has a Whisper White panel with a strip of the Carried Away DSP adhered just to the left side to leave room for a note. 

Lift Me Up Bundle Cardiology by Jari

And, because this paper is so cool, I decided to fancy up the outer flap of the envelope.  Just cut a strip of DSP a little longer and wider than your envelope flap, add some liquid glue to the outside of the flap, place the strip on top and cut off the excess with your Paper Snips.

So, if you do not have this Lift Me Up Bundle yet, have I convinced you that you really need to get it?  

I will provide the card stock cuts in inches and a list of the products to create this card at the very end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Inside The Lines Thank You

I used the Inside the Lines DSP and All Things Thanks from Stampin’ Up! to create my card for today.  Remember, Inside the Lines is FREE during Sale-A-Bration when you order $50 or more in Stampin’ Up! products.  

 

Stampin' Up! Inside the Lines and All Things Thanks Cardiology by Jari

I was inspired by the colors at Sunday Stamps SSC147 

Sunday Stamps SSC147 Challenge

 

My sketch was inspired by the Less is More #317 challenge this week:

Less is More #317 sketch challenge

 

I started with a panel of the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper.  From this panel, I decided on the portion I wanted to color and used a Stitched Shapes Thinlets Circle die to cut it out. Using a Blender Pen and Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzaz, Crumb Cake, So Saffron and Soft Sky inks, I painted the images inside the circle.  Once dry, I cut a scalloped circle from the Circles Framelits in Calypso Coral card stock and adhered it to the back of the colored panel.  

Stampin' Up! Inside the Lines and All Things Thanks by Cardiology by Jari

I adhered the uncolored panel of Inside the Lines DSP to a panel of Pear Pizzaz card stock, then wrapped a length of Linen Thread around it 3 times.  It was secured to the back with some tape, then I added Dimensionals and popped this panel onto the Calypso Coral card stock base.  I lined up the colored panel of Inside the Lines with the uncolored panel and popped it over the cut out spot with Dimensionals.

 

Stampin' Up! Inside The Lines and All Things Thanks Cardiology by Jari

 

 Then, I inked up the sentiment from All Things Thanks in Versa Mark ink onto a panel of Calypso Coral, sprinkled Copper Emboss Powder on it and heat embossed it.  I pulled out one of the banners from Bunch of Banners, die cut it and popped it onto the front with Dimensionals. 

 

Inside The Lines and All Things Thanks Cardiology by Jari

For the inside, I chose one of the flowers from Inside The Lines DSP, cut it out, and colored it in using my Blender Pen and Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzaz and So Saffron inks.  The sentiment is another one from All Things Thanks and heat embossed with Copper Emboss Powder.  This Whisper White sentiment panel was adhered to a panel of Pear Pizzaz, then layered onto the Calypso Coral card base.  

A complete list of supplies to complete this project as well as card stock cuts in inches will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Inside the Lines and Dragonfly Dreams

I used the Stampin’ Up! Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper with the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle to create my card for today.  

 

Inside the Lines

This is my first time using the Inside the Lines DSP, which is FREE during Sale-A-Bration!  I started with one of the 4 design sheets and some of the new Watercolor Pencils.  The stems are colored in Old Olive, and the flowers in Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight.  I used my blender pen to pull some of the color around in the flowers.  I used a Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write marker for the middle of the bee, and added some Wink of Stella to the wings.  Once everything was colored, I adhered that panel onto a panel of Calypso Coral.  

 

Inside the Lines

 

Next, I stamped the sentiment from Flourishing Phrases, onto a panel of Whisper White, using Basic Black Archival ink. I used the banner die from the Gift Card Envelope and Trims Thinlets to cut it out. Then, I cut another banner in Old Olive to frame the sentiment.  Once they were adhered together, I punched out a small hole on one end so that I could run some twine through.  

 

Inside the Lines

I wrapped a length of Calypso Coral Thick Baker’s Twine around the art panel three times, came up through the hole in my banner and made a bow.  Then, I added some dimensionals to the back of the banner.  The dragonflies were die cut with the Detailed Dragonfly Framelits and then I cut them apart and added two to the front with dimensionals.  To complete the front, I added dimensionals to the art panel and popped it onto the Old Olive base.

 

Inside the Lines

 

For the inside, I stamped my sentiment from Dragonfly Dreams in Basic Black Archival ink first.  Then, I stamped the dotted images in Calypso Coral, stamping off before stamping them around the sentiment.  I cut another set of the Dragonfly dies in Basic Black, this time leaving them intact, and added them with little dots of liquid glue.  

If you enjoy coloring, you really ought to consider the Inside the Lines DSP as one of your FREE choice items during Sale-A-Bration.  Remember for every $50 you spend, you can receive one free item!  

A complete list of products used and card stock cuts in inches will be at the end of the post.
