Jari Francis, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Stampin’ Up! All Things Thanks

I’m sharing a card today using the All Things Thanks stamp set from the upcoming Occasions Catalog, available on January 4th.  

All Things Thanks


I started with a panel of Presents & Pinecones DSP (on sale now) and adhered it to a panel of Mint Macaron card stock with glue. Next, I cut a length of Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon and wrapped it around those 2 panels, securing it to the back with some scotch tape.  Then, I popped it onto my Whisper White note card with dimensionals.


All things Thanks


I pulled out my Weather Together stamp set and stamped the gift package image in Basic Black Archival ink onto a scrap of Whisper White Thick card stock.  Then, I colored in the bow and the polka dots with Mint Macaron and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Markers.  The package was fussy cut using my Paper Snips.  I inked up the sentiment from All Things Thanks in Cherry Cobbler ink and stamped it onto a panel of Whisper White card stock.  


All Things Thanks


The sentiment panel was cut using an oval Stitched Shapes Framelits Die and framed with a little larger scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits.Dies. For this scalloped oval, I used another panel of the Presents & Pinecones DSP.   I looped some Silver Metallic Thread around dimensionals that were placed on the front before adding the sentiment.  Next, I added some dimensionals to the sentiment panel and popped it onto the front of the card.  Finally I added a little bling with the stars and circles from the Hello December 2016 Hello Life Accessory Pack.  

All Things Thanks can be found on page 35 of the new Occasions catalog.  Don’t have your own catalog?  Please contact me for one.  

You will find the card stock cuts and products used for my card today at the end of the post.

Last Blast of Summer for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew

Amy's Inkin' Krew



Welcome to our Last Blast of Summer Blog Hop from Amy’s Inkin’ Krew!  If you live in the south, you know we have a while to go until summer is officially over, but if you have children in school already, then SUMMER IS OVER!!  I love the beach, so I had fun making this card and dreaming of my last blast of summer coming up soon….



Last Blast of Summer


I started by stamping the beach umbrella from Weather Together in Bay and Daffodil Delight onto a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock, then die cut them with the coordinating Umbrella Weather Framelits.  I also die cut the trim for the umbrella from that same set in Daffodil Delight and adhered it with liquid glue.  Next, I die cut Sunshine from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets three times in Gold Foil and carefully glued them together with liquid glue. I die cut two of the Swirly shapes for my sun image from Swirly Scribbles


Last Blast of Summer



I just love the Serene Scenery DSP, especially the one I chose for the background for this Last Blast of Summer card!  I used the ground image from Sheltering Tree to stamp a little more sand in Crumb Cake ink for the umbrella to rest in.  So that it was not too dark, I stamped off once on scrap paper, then onto the DSP.   The Shell and Starfish images from Seaside Shore, are also stamped in Crumb Cake, but full strength and then fussy cut with my Paper Snips.


Last Blast of Summer


My swirly sun, the starfish, and Sunshine were adhered with liquid glue, the umbrella and shell with dimensionals. this panel is framed with a panel of Bermuda Bay, then popped onto the Crumb Cake card base with dimensionals.  


Last Blast of Summer



The sentiment for the inside of the card is from Sunshine Sayings and is stamped in Bermuda Bay.  For the bottom of the card, I created a little more beach sand with more Crumb Cake ink using the same ground image as from the front, and added more starfish and a shell.  The Very Vanilla panel is framed in Bermuda Bay.  

So, what will you do for your Last Blast of Summer?   I am headed to the beach in a few days, YEA!!


Card stock cuts in inches and Stampin’ Up! Products used will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Weather Together

My share for today is from Weather Together, one of the new Stampin’ Up! stamp sets/bundles.  I am loving all of the new bundles, not only because there is a 10% discount when you bundle, but because of all of the awesome thinlets, framelets and punches that help make your card extra special and, easy to put together!


Weather Together


First, I added a strip of Sof Sky Subtles DSP to the top of a Whisper White panel with glue, then I stamped the raindrop images from Weather Together in Soft Sky onto the Whisper White.  I framed this panel with a panel of Calypso Coral using liquid glue to attach them.



Weather Together


Next, I stamped the umbrella top in Calypso Coral and the handle in Early Expresso ink onto a panel of Whisper White thick card stock and die cut them using the Umbrella Weather Framelits.  I used a little glue to adhere the handle to the back of the umbrella top, then attached the whole piece to the front of the card with dimensionals.

I stamped some clouds in Soft Sky and used the matching Framelits die to cut them out.  They are added to the front with dimensionals.


Weather Together


The sentiment is also found in the Weather Together set and is stamped in Early Expresso onto a panel of Soft Sky, then die cut with the banner from the Large Numbers Framelits die set.  To finish off the front, I added a small bow using the Calypso Coral baker’s twine and the silver heart from my Metallic Enamel Shapes.  


Weather Together


For the inside, I added more of the Soft Sky DSP to the top and bottom of the Whisper White panel, then stamped another umbrella  in Calypso Coral and Early Expresso inks. ( I used a different image from the set for the handle). The sentiment is  also stamped in Early Expresso.


Don’t you love Weather Together?  Lots of fun images and sentiments plus die cuts!!  Check it out on page 55 of the Annual catalog.
