Stampin’ Up! Bike Ride Bundle for FMS#300

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Delight Thank You

I used the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Delight Bundle to create the Thank You card I’m sharing with you today.  

Stampin' Up! Daisy Delight Thank You-Cardiology by Jari

The colors for my thank you card were inspired by Fab Fri#118

FabFri#118

And my sketch was inspired by Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #255

Paper Craft Crew #255

I started with a Whisper White panel and stamped the splatter image from Touches of Texture in Flirty Flamingo near the center.  Then, I stamped the sentiment from Daisy Delight in Melon Mambo near the bottom.  This panel was then adhered to a panel of Lemon Lime Twist.

Stampin' Up! Daisy Delight Thank You-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I stamped one of the images from Background Bits in Flirty Flamingo onto a panel of Whisper White and used the Washi Tape die from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets to cut it out.  It was adhered to the art panel and then a length of Lemon Lime Twist 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon adhered to the side with some tape securing it in the back.   

Stampin' Up! Daisy Delight Thank You-Cardiology by Jari

I stamped two of the daisy images in Flirty Flamingo, then I used my Blender Pen and Melon Mambo ink to pull some more color near the center of the leaves.  For some dimension to the flowers, I used my Bone Folder to gently curve the petals.  The two flowers were lined up so that there were no gaps in between the petals and then glued together.  A Gold Faceted Gem was added to the center and I created the leaves.  The outline leaf is full strength Lemon Lime Twist and the inside was Lemon Lime Twist stamped off once.  The daisy and leaves were added with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then the whole art panel popped onto the Melon Mambo card base with more dimensionals. 

Stampin' Up! Daisy Delight Thank You-Cardiology by Jari

The sentiment and small flower images are also from Daisy Delight, and were stamped in Melon Mambo ink.  

When I began creating my card, I wasn’t sure which color I wanted for the outside sentiment, so I had an extra Whisper White panel stamped Flirty Flamingo.  Instead of throwing it out, I also created this card, so now, I have two thank you cards ready to send!

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

Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

The Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle from the 2017 Annual Catalog has really been a favorite of mine.  So, I pulled it out again for the card I am sharing with you today.

Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

 

And here is the color challenge:

Happy Inkin thursday color challenge-Happy Birthday Gorgeous bundle

I have to be honest with you, I really struggled with these colors this week, even though Stampin’ Up! has provided Designer Series Paper to match our challenge!  I tend to go for more bold colors in my projects!  

I started by adhering a panel of Vellum to the Soft Sky Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper with a little liquid glue in the center of the panel.  I knew it would be covered by my other elements and the glue would not show!  Then I adhered that panel to a panel of Soft Sky card stock with liquid glue.  

Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I punched a strip of Blushing Bride and one of the Fabulous Foil DSP with my Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and adhered them in the center with a little liquid glue.  Once again, I knew the glue would not show.  I wrapped a length of Gold 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon around the Soft Sky panel and through the tag and tied a bow, securing it to the back with a little tape and popped it onto my Very Vanilla Thick card stock base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

The stamping came next, first with the sentiment from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle in VersaMark ink, embossed with Gold Emboss Powder and heat embossed.  The sentiment was die cut with an oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and matted to a little larger Gold Foil scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  The flower images from Happy Birthday Gorgeous were stamped in Blushing Bride and Soft Sky and the leaves in Lemon Lime Twist.  All were fussy cut with my Paper Snips, then added with liquid glue and dimensionals.  A banner was created using a Blushing Bride pattern from the Bundle of Love DSP and my Banner Triple Punch.  The banner was adhered to the sentiment oval and then popped onto the front of the card with dimensionals.  Three enamel shapes finished off the front.

Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

I wanted you to see the inside closely, so I turned it sideways!  I used the Happy Birthday Thinlets, which are part of the Happy Birthday Bundle, to die cut a Blushing Bride and Gold Foil sentiment.  I offset them slightly so that the Blushing Bride showed a little and glued them carefully with small dots of liquid glue.  I waited just a little and adhered them so that the glue would not smash and seep out because it dries shiny and doesn’t look nice on your finished project!  More of my fussy cut flowers and a strip of the same DSP used in my banner were added to the Very Vanilla inside panel before gluing it to my card base.  Enjoy!

A complete list of stamping supplies and card stock cuts are at the end of my post.

Deck the Halls with Stampin’ Up! Carols of Christmas

I know, it’s a little early to deck the halls, but who can resist the new Carols of Christmas Bundle available now from Stampin’ Up!  Deck the Halls with Carols of Christmas-Cardiology by Jari

I started with a Basic Black card stock base and adhered a panel of the new Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper (available Sept. 1st) to the front.  The black and olive green plaid paper is really fun for Christmas cards, and I like the fact that it is not just for the holiday season.  

Deck the Halls-Cardiology by Jari

I used the Card Front Builder Thinlets Dies (part of the Carols of Christmas Bundle) to create the Basic Black card stock frame. Using my Stamp-a-ma-jig and Versa Mark ink, I stamped Deck the Halls in the center of the frame and sprinkled it with White Emboss powder then heated it until smooth and shiny.  I repeated the stamping sequence with the design above the sentiment and also the flower below it.  

The Basic Black frame was then adhered to another panel from the Merry Little Christmas DSP (available Sept 1st) with liquid glue.  

Deck the Halls-Cardiology by Jari

A bow was punched from another panel of  the Merry Little Christmas DSP (available Sept 1st) using my Bow Builder Punch.  Isn’t it the cutest?  Next, the art panel was popped onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the final step for the front was to add a Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the center of the flower.  

Deck the Halls-Cardiology by Jari

For the inside, I chose a Whisper White panel and stamped the ornament image from Carols of Christmas in Old Olive ink.  The sentiment is from Better Together and also stamped in Old Olive.  A little strip of the plaid paper from the front was adhered to the bottom and then the sentiment panel adhered to the card base.  

Don’t wait too long to Deck the Halls with this great new stamp set!  Details for ordering are below.  

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

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.

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.

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.

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!

A complete list of stamping supplies and card stock cuts are at the end of the post.

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.

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!
