Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Today

Happy Saturday!  Hope your spring day is shaping up to be a great one!  My share for today is from Celebrate Today from Stampin’ Up!  

Celebrate Today

 

 

I am playing along with the Sunday Stamps Challenge SSC123, which is a “rainbow” challenge.  Head over to the Sunday Stamps site and play along-and check out all of the great cards featured there.  

 

SSC123F

 

I started by stamping the “rainbow” image under the balloons.  I used the ground stamp from Sheltering Tree and inked it with Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Cucumber Crush, Pacific Point and Elegant Eggplant inks  onto a panel of Whisper White.  I used a panel of Cucumber Crush envelope paper to frame the art piece and adhered it with multipurpose liquid glue.  

Celebrate Today

The new Balloon Bouquet punch creates wonderful balloons!  I punched out one of each in my rainbow colors and added a little white accent with my uni-ball Signo Gel Pen.  I stamped some strings for the balloons with Basic Black archival ink and attached a few with glue and a few I popped up with dimensionals.  Then, added a red bow with some !/4″ cotton ribbon, and 3 silver sequins. The sentiment from Celebrate Today is stamped onto the card front in Basic Black archival ink. This panel was then popped onto the Pacific Point card base with dimensionals.  

Here is the inside:

Celebrate Today

I used  2 more stamps from Celebrate Today and the bow is from the Balloon Framelits.  I added a sequin to the center of the bow, too.  This stamp set is found on page 102 of the Annual Catalog.  It comes as a bundle with the Balloons Framelits for a 15% savings!  It can be used for birthdays, graduation, wedding or baby cards or projects.  So versatile, and a fun set to have.  

 

 

Card stock cuts will be at the end of the post.

Stampin’ Up! Suite Sayings for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Stampers March 17th Blog Hop

 My share for today is from the Suite Sayings stamp set and is dressed up with a flower from the Botanical Builders Framelits Dies.

Suite Sayings from Stampin' Up! Easter Card

And here is our sketch.  Why don’t you see what you can create with it, too? 

12274185_1305622946130944_4007434623182849654_n

The Suite Sayings stamp set has 10 wonderful sentiments in lots of different fonts, which will work for so many different occasions.  It is really a keeper!  Of course, I say that about almost all of my stamp sets!  (Just sayin’)  and you know how much I love the framelits if you have been following my blog since the Occasions catalog has come out!

Stampin' Up! Suite Sayings by Card-iology by Jari

I stamped the sentiment in Lost Lagoon ink onto a panel of Whisper White card stock and cut it out with an oval die from the Ovals collection.  I felt that it needed a frame, and since the next sized frame was too large, I used an idea from fellow stamper, Sue Prather.  She says to trace around the outside of the frame, then cut out carefully with scissors for a frame closer to the size of the one you die cut.  And, it worked out just like I wanted it to in Blackberry Bliss. The two ovals were then attached to one another with MP liquid glue.  Love this font from Suite Sayings!
Suite Sayings by Card-iology by Jari

My card base is Calypso Coral with some Wildflower Fields DSP from the Sale-a-Bration catalog (this is FREE  paper until March 31st!) and a strip of Lost Lagoon attached on the right.  I die cut one of the flower images in the Botanical Builder die set in Lost Lagoon and used some Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey for the centers.  The leaves were stamped first with the leaf stamp from Botanical Blooms, then die cut with the corresponding leaf die.  The oval sentiment panel and the leaves and flower were then popped onto the front with dimensionals.  

blogsuiteSayings006I added a few flowers from the FREE Botanicals for You stamp set that also coordinates with Botanical Blooms for the inside of the card, and then made an envelope liner to complete the theme.blogsuiteSayings008

 

And now, on to the next stop on the hop.  Kristi Gray has something special to share today, so make sure you check out her beautiful creation.  A list of all of the “hoppers” for today is posted below in case you want to go around again, or get lost along the way.

Stampin’ Up! Party Wishes Birthday Card

My share for today is a birthday card using the Party Wishes stamp set from Stampin’ Up!Party Wishes from Card-iology by Jari

 

I am playing along with this week’s Pals Paper Arts, PPA291 which is a color challenge:

PPA291-Mar10-300x208

And also  TGIFc46 which is a sketch challenge:

TGIF MARCH Challenges-005

Make sure you head over to both of the challenges to see what everyone has designed and also play along!

Party Wishes by Stampin' Up!

Party Wishes is found in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog on page 5.  There you can see all of the It’s My Party Suite.  You also can bundle and save 15% when you purchase the Party Wishes stamp set and the Party Punch Pack.

This is a really quick and easy card to knock out because the Cherry on Top DSP is a great backdrop for the sentiment piece.  Stampin' Up! PartyWishes by Card-iology by JariI layered a piece of the Cherry on Top DSP onto a panel of Watermelon Wonder with multipurpose liquid glue, and then the same to the Cucumber Crush card base.  I love using this glue because it makes positioning easy, you have a little “wiggle” room with it in case you need to re-position a panel.  

Next, I stamped the sentiment from Party Wishes onto Whisper White using Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder Stampin’ Write Markers.  I punched it out with my 2″ circle punch.  Then, created a frame with the 2 3/8″  scallop circle punch using the 2015-2017 In Colors Watermelon Wonder DSP. These two pieces were glued together.

I colored the cupcake image from Party Wishes onto Whisper White paper using Stampin’ Write markers and punched it out with the cupcake punch from the Party Punch Pack punches.  I did the same with the candle image and glued the candle to the top of the cupcake.

Stampin' Up! Party Wishes by Card-iology by Jari

The cupcake was then popped onto the sentiment panel with dimensionals.  I made a banner from another piece of Cherry on Top paper using the Banner Triple punch, attached the sentiment piece to it and popped the whole thing onto the front of the card with dimensionals.

Here is the inside:

Stampin' Up! Party Wishes by Card-iology by Jari

The cake and candles from Party Wishes were stamped in Pool Party and the sentiment stamped in Watermelon Wonder.  The bottom and top of the Whisper White panel is finished off with Watermelon Wonder Washi Tape .

Stampin’ Up! Botanical Blooms

My card for today is from the Stampin’ Up! Botanical Blooms stamp set and the beautiful Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper.

Stampin' Up! Botanical Blooms by Card-iology by Jari

My inspiration for this card is from CAS(E) this Sketch #162, and here is the sketch:

CTS_162

I have been in love with Botanical Blooms ever since I saw the Botanical Gardens suite in the new Occasions Catalog.  I bought the bundle right away, and have used it a lot (you know if you have followed me for a while!)  This bundle, found on page 26, includes the Botanical Blooms stamp set, Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper, and Botanical Builder Framelits Dies.  And, I love working with the Photopolymer stamps!
