Stampin’ Up! Labels to Love Sneak Peek

Today I am sharing a sneak peek of the Labels to Love stamp set from the upcoming 2017 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog (available to order on September 1st). 

Stampin' Up! Labels to Love -Cardiology by Jari

My sketch was inspired by the card sketch at Paper Craft Crew #256

PCC#256

I also used the Colorful Seasons Bundle (save 10%) for this CAS (clean and simple) card.  First, I stamped the Give Thanks sentiment from Labels to Love (available Sept. 1st) in VersaMark ink onto a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Then, I sprinkled on Copper Emboss Powder, heated it with my heat tool until smooth and shiny and die cut it with a circle die from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies.  It was framed with a little larger Copper Foil scalloped circle.  


Stampin' Up! Labels to Love-Cardiology by Jari

Using the smallest leaf image from the Colorful Seasons stamp set, I stamped two leaves onto a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  The top leaf was stamped in Crushed Curry and the lower leaf in Cajun Craze.  This panel was adhered to a panel of Copper Foil.  Next, I punched a banner of Painted Autumn DSP (Available Sept 1st) with my Banner Triple Punch and popped it onto the stamped panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut a length of Copper Trim, pulled it apart a little and stuck it under the banner adhering it with a glue dot.

I die cut the open leaf from the Seasonal Layers Framelits Dies in Copper Foil and adhered it to my sentiment circle with a glue dot.   Then I wound several loops of Copper Metallic Thread around my fingers and attached it to the back of the circle with more glue dots.   Then I adhered the circle to the banner with a little liquid glue and a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.   Regals Enamel Shapes, Rhinestone Basic Jewels and a Gold Faceted Gem were added and finally, the art panel was adhered to the Cajun Craze card base with more dimensionals.

The inside sentiment is from Colorful Seasons and embossed with more Copper Emboss Powder.  The small leaves are stamped in Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry.

Stampin’ Up! At Home With You for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Hop

Amy's Inkin' Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome to our Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Fall Frenzy Team Blog Hop for August.  I used the At Home With You Bundle from Stampin’ Up! to create the card I am sharing with you today.  

Stampin' Up! At Home With You Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

I have to admit, I don’t think I have ever made a card without a sentiment on the front, so this one is a first for me!  I saw a card on Pinterest that got my attention (see it here) with creating double doors with the At Home With You Bundle, so I decided to try one myself.  With all of the extras on the front, I decided a sentiment would be just too much.  So, what do you think?

I started by dry embossing a Pear Pizzaz panel with the Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I used a sponge dauber and some Soft Suede ink to create some interest on the brick wall.  Then, I matted it with a panel of Soft Suede .  Two doors were stamped in Basic Black Archival ink onto some Wood Textures Designer Series Paper and cut out with the matching At Home Framelits Dies.  Each door window was also die cut at the same time.  The doors were adhered together with some liquid glue and a panel of So Saffron card stock was added to the back to peek through. Then I adhered the doors to the embossed panel with liquid glue.  

Stampin' Up! At Home With You Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

I stamped the sunflower and pumpkin stamp images onto water color paper with Basic Black Archival ink and used my Aqua Painters to color them in with Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive inks.  Then,  I stamped the lanterns on more watercolor paper and colored them in with Soft Suede, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie inks.  When the flowers and lanterns were dry, I die cut them with the corresponding dies from the bundle, then layered everything onto the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! At Home With You-Cardiology by Jari

The inside sentiment is from the Paisleys and Posies stamp set and was stamped on Whisper White with more Soft Suede ink.  That panel was adhered to a panel of Pear Pizzaz and added to the Soft Suede base with liquid glue.  

Card stock cuts and stamping supplies needed to create the card will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Count My Blessings Sneak Peek!

Today I am sharing the new Count My Blessings stamp set from the upcoming 2017 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  Count My Blessings is available for purchase on September 1st.  It is part of the Painted Autumn Suite.

Stampin' Up! Count My Blessings-Cardiology by Jari

I noticed that the acorn leaf image from Count My Blessings was similar to a leaf image from the  Lovely As A Tree stamp set.  I always loved that leaf image, so I paired it up with my card today!  

The leaf image from Lovely As A Tree was stamped randomly in Crumb Cake ink onto a panel of Crumb Cake card stock. Then, I matted that panel to Early Expresso card stock and adhered them to the Crumb Cake card stock base with liquid glue.  

Stampin' Up! Count My Blessings-Cardiology by Jari

Next I matted a strip of the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (available Sept. 1st) to a panel of Early Expresso and adhered them to the card front with some liquid glue.  I stamped the small leaves image from Count My Blessings in Garden Green on a banner of Garden Green card stock and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 


Stampin' Up! Count My Blessings-Cardiology by Jari

The acorn/leaf image from Count My Blessings was stamped in Basic Black Archival ink onto a panel of watercolor paper.  I used my Aqua Painter and the lids of my Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Garden Green ink pads to color it in., then I used my Paper Snips to cut it out.  While it was drying, I stamped the large sentiment in Early Expresso onto Very Vanilla card stock and cut it out with a Stitched Shapes oval die.  I tied a double bow with Linen Thread and adhered the acorn art piece to the banner with liquid glue.  My oval sentiment was added with dimensionals and three Garden Green enamel shapes were added for additional color.  

sStampin' Up! Count My Blessings-Cardiology by Jari

For the inside Crumb Cake panel, I used more of the leaf and leaf and acorn images to stamp around the outer edges in Crumb Cake ink, stamping off on scrap paper first.  In my mind, I had planned on stamping the sentiment in Early Expresso, but forgot-UGH-until I was glueing it down onto the Early Expresso frame.  The Crumb Cake really doesn’t show as well as I would have liked, but I decided not to re-do it!  Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Sneak Peek!

Today, I’m sharing a sneak peek of the new Painted Harvest stamp set from the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog, available on September 1st.  I know you are going to love it as much as I do!  

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest-Cardiology by Jari

The Painted Harvest stamp set(available September 1st)  is photopolymer and the images are created for two step stamping.  I started by inking up the sunflower images in Crushed Curry and Peekaboo Peach.  The larger, more undefined flower was stamped first in Crushed Curry, then the smaller stamp in Peekaboo Peach, with the center being stamped in Early Espresso.  I fussy cut the first sunflower with my Paper Snips, and since I was happy with the colors, I stamped several sunflowers on a panel of Whisper White.  Then, I went back and stamped the dotted images in Early Expresso using second generation stamping.  (Where you stamp off onto scrap paper first, then stamp onto your art panel)

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest-Cardiology by Jari

The art panel was then adhered to a panel of Copper Foil with Liquid Glue.  

I used my banner triple punch to notch one end of my Early Expresso banner, then inked it up with my sentiment in VersaMark ink.  I sprinkled on Copper Emboss powder, shook off the excess and heat embossed it until shiny.  For the leaves, I inked the  solid image in Garden Green, stamped them off once, then stamped them onto a panel of Whisper White.  The second leaf image was inked in Lemon Lime Twist and stamped full strength over the first stamping.  They were then fussy cut with my Paper Snips.  Three accent sprigs were die cut in Copper Foil from the Bouquet Bunch Framelits Dies and set aside.  

Stampin' Up! Painted Harves-Cardiology by Jari

 

The banner was adhered to the art panel with liquid glue, then I dry fit the sunflower, leaves and sprigs.  When I was happy with their placement, I wound a length of Linen Thread around the back of the sunflower and secured it with Glue Dots.  Then, I added the sunflower, leaves and sprigs with Stampin’ Dimensionals, Glue Dots and Liquid Glue.  Finally, the art panel was complete, and I adhered it to the Early Expresso/Peekaboo Peach base with dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest-Cardiology by Jari

I chose a different sentiment from Painted Harvest (available September 1st) to stamp on the inside of my card.  It was also heat embossed with Copper Emboss Powder.  Another sunflower image with leaves was stamped in the corner using the same two step method and colors as instructed for the card front.  

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

My card sketch was inspired by the sketch that Christy created for this months sketch challenge at Craft Project Central.

I hope you’ll try this one out and post it on Craft Project Central, too!

Stampin’ Up! Giving Thanks at Thanksgiving

Want a fun way for Giving Thanks to family and friends at Thanksgiving?   I am sharing a trio of projects you can use for your holiday table setting.  The Pilgrim pair are compliments of Publix Supermarket!

 

Giving Thanks

 

I made a place setting holder using my Gift Card Envelope and Trims Thinlets Dies,Layering Ovals Framelits,  Kraft card stock, Copper Foil card stock , Night of Navy card stock and Petals and Paisleys Specialty DSP.  

 

Give Thanks

 

I made a belly band with the Paisleys and Posies DSP, then stamped the sentiment, from  Paisleys and Posies, in Versa Mark onto Night of Navy.  It was sprinkled with Copper Embossing Powder and heat embossed.  When cooled, I die cut it with a Layering Oval die and framed it in a little larger Copper Foil Layering Oval.  The idea for this came from Allison Okamitsu.  See her project HERE.

 

Giving Thanks

 

For the bag of treats, I used one of the Gusseted Cellophane Bags and lined it partially with the same piece of Paisleys and Posies DSP as used on the belly band above.  The Hersheys Nuggets are also wrapped with a !” X 3″ panel of this DSP and secured with glue dots.  I saw the idea for the bag over at Lisa Curcio’s blog.

The place card is a piece of Night of Navy card stock 4 1/8″ X  4 1/4″ scored and folded at 2 1/8″.  I added a panel of Very Vanilla that had the corners rounded with my Project Life Corner Rounder Punch.  The banner sentiment is from Sheltering Tree, stamped in Versa Mark and heat embossed with Copper Embossing Powder.  Next, I die cut 2 of the leaf images from the Paisley Framelits Dies in Copper Foil and attached them to the end of the banner with liquid glue. The banner was attached to the place card with dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Suite Seasons

Today’s share is another sneak peek from the Holiday Catalog using Suite Seasons from Stampin’ Up! 

 

Suite Seasons

 

I am also using some of the new Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designers Series Paper.  This paper is the bomb!  I am loving the paisley patterns and all of the colors in it too.  I used Delightful Dijon, Night of Navy and Mint Macaron card stock under the Petals and Paisleys DSP.  

 

Suite Seasons

 

The sentiment is from Suite Seasons, which you can use for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas cards.  I stamped it in Rich Razzleberry ink onto a panel of Very Vanilla card stock, then die cut it with a Layering Oval Framelit die.  Then, I framed it in a little larger oval using Night of Navy card stock.  Before attaching it to the front with dimensionals, I cut a length of Mint Macaron 5/8 ” Striped Ribbon , tied a bow around it with Linen Thread and attached it with Tear & Tape adhesive.

 

Suite Seasons

 

I left the inside plain except for a strip of the Petals & Paisleys DSP attached to the bottom of the Very Vanilla panel.

Suite Seasons should be a definite addition to your wish list from the new Holiday Catalog.  There are several fonts to complete your holiday cards!
