Stampin’ Up! Good Tidings for Christmas

I used the Good Tidings stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create the Christmas card I am sharing with you today.  

Stampin' Up! Good Tidings-Cardiology by Jari

The sketch inspiration is from the challenge over at Just Add Ink this week

Just Add Ink #380

Good Tidings is a two step stamp set, and all of the images except the sentiments are meant to be stamped twice.  Depending on your preference, you can either stamp the more solid image darker or stamp it off on scrap paper, then add the second image on top of it.   And, depending on your preference, you may stamp that second image lighter or darker.  I played around a little with each  set of leaves and berries until I got the coloring I wanted.  If you look carefully on the sheet the stamps come on, it is marked with numbers and letters. (1a, 1b, 1c, 1d, etc.)

Stampin' Up! Good Tidings-Cardiology by Jari

I used Old Olive on the holly leaves, Cherry Cobbler on the berries, and Early Expresso on the stem.  Since I was going to fussy cut out the holly, I stamped those images on Whisper White Thick card stock.  

Stampin' Up Good Tidings-Cardiology by Jari

I kept the inside very simple, with just a strip of the same Merry Little Christmas DSP adhered to the side of my Whisper White panel.  The sentiment is also from the Good Tidings stamp set.  

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

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Around the World

I created a really quick and easy card for today using the Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper.  And, Christmas Around the World DSP is on the list of papers for the Buy 3 Get 1 Free Sale going on right now through October 31st, at Stampin’ Up!  Yippee!

Stampin' Up! Christmas Around the World-Cardiology by Jari

There is no stamping required with this sentiment, just some fussy cutting with your Paper Snips!  Isn’t that cool?  Check out the pattern, there are all sorts of messages on it just waiting to be added to your cards or projects. First,  I dry embossed a panel of Real Red with the Brick Wall TIEF (textured impressions embossing folder), then adhered two coordinating panels from the Christmas Around the World DSP to it with Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Around the World-Cardiology by Jari

I cut a length of Burlap Ribbon, folded it over, stapled it together, then added some Tear & Tape Adhesive and adhered it to the front of the embossed panel.  Next, I cut out a banner from Real Red using the heart strip die from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets Dies and notched one end using my Banner Triple Punch.  The banner was adhered to the sentiment bubble with some Liquid Glue, then I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the bubble over the Burlap Ribbon.  One of the cut out hearts from the banner was then added with a dimensional.  Finally, the art panel was popped onto the Real Red card stock base with more dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! Christmas Around the World

The inside sentiment is from the Hang Your Stocking stamp set, and more hearts were adhered with Liquid Glue.  The Very Vanilla panel was adhered to a panel of Pool Party and then to the card base.  

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

Stampin’ Up! Merry Cafe for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 

Hi Stampers! We have a color challenge this week, and I used the Merry Cafe stamp set and Coffee Cups Framelits Dies to create the card I am sharing with you.

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe-Cardiology by Jari

I had so much fun with this Merry Cafe stamp set and these colors this week!  The Lemon Lime Twist and Real Red really make a statement together, don’t they?  Luckily, the Quilted Christmas DSP helped out with getting in all of the colors required.  

As you can see, I also got in some dry embossing with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the Lemon Lime Twist backdrop.  

Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe-Cardioloogy by Jari

The coffee cup images and lids were stamped onto the DSP, Garden Green and Real Red card stock with Soft Suede ink, then die cut out.  For the Whisper White cup sleeve, I stamped the sentiments on after die cutting it and added the holly berries and leaves, then went around the edges with my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker to give a defined border.  The Lemon Lime Twist cup sleeve was die cut from the die with the ridges and a Silver Foil snowflake from the Seasonal Layers Thinlets was adhered to the center of it.  

Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe-Cardiology by Jari

The Silver Foil swirl serving as steam is from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlets Dies.  I matted the red-checked Quilted Christmas DSP onto some Whisper White and then onto the Lemon Lime Twist panel.  A length of 1/4″ Ombre Lemon Lime Twist was wrapped around then, and a bow tied.  The coffee cups were adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then the whole art panel adhered to the Real Red card stock base with more dimensionals.  An extra sentiment from Merry Cafe was stamped in Real Red, cut out with the smallest banner from the Bunch of Banners Framelits, adhered with dimensionals and the front was complete.

Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe-Cardiology by Jari

More holly and berries and the sentiment were stamped onto a Whisper White panel, then a thin strip of the Quilted Christmas DSP was added to the bottom and my card was finished!  

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

Stampin’ Up! Merry Christmas Wreath

I used the Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper and the Swirly Scribbles Thinlets to help create the  Merry Christmas Wreath card I am sharing for today.  

Stampin' Up! Christmas Wreath-Cardiology by Jari

The Christmas Around the World DSP (part of the buy 3 get 1 DSP sale, see below!) is matted to a Real Red panel.  I created a banner and ran it through my Big Shot using the Sparkle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to dry emboss it, then adhered it to the DSP panel.  Two of the wreaths were die cut in Garden Green and adhered to one another with dabs of Liquid Glue, then popped onto the banner with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Merry Christmas, from the At Home With You stamp set, was stamped in Real Red onto Whisper White and punched out with the Dual Banner Punch.  

Stampin' Up! Merry Christmas Wreath-Cardiology by Jari

The banner was adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then I fussy cut some packages from the DSP with my Paper Snips, adhered them and added a Metallic Enamel Shape star.  My bow was tied from the 1/4″ Quilted Christmas Ribbon and adhered with Glue Dots.  I adhered a panel of Be Merry Designer Series Paper (this is included in the buy 3 get 1 DSP sale) to my Garden Green card stock base, then popped the art panel onto the front with more dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! Merry Christmas Wreath-Cardiology by Jari

The inside sentiment is from Watercolor Wishes, and is stamped in Real Red.  The largest package was stamped using the image from the At Home With You stamp set in Real Red and then I colored in the polka dots with my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.  

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

Stampin’ Up! Pick a Pumpkin Spooky Nights

I used the Pick a Pumpkin and Spooky Nights Designer Series Paper to create a Halloween card for today.  Pumpkin – Spooky, these don’t work for my card today, as I chose to make them happy ones!  

Stampin' Up! Spooky-Pumpkin-Cardiology by Jari

All of my Spooky-Pumpkins were stamped in Pumpkin Pie ink onto Very Vanilla Thick card stock and cut out with the Patterned Pumpkin Thinlets Dies.  I also die cut the vine and leaf in Garden Green at the same time.  The center panel is Pumpkin Pie with narrow strips of Very Vanilla and Spooky Nights DSP adhered to it with Liquid Glue.  I stamped the Happy Halloween sentiment from the Season to Sparkle stamp set in Basic Black Archival ink.  

Stampin' Up! Spooky-Nights-Cardiology by Jari

Once the pumpkins, vine and leaf were adhered to the center panel, I die cut the little black crosses, also from the Patterned Pumpkin Thinlets Dies, and adhered them with little dabs of liquid glue.  I adhered another panel of the Spooky Nights DSP to a panel of Basic Black with liquid glue, then popped it onto the Pumpkin Pie card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally, the art panel was adhered to the center front with more Dimensionals and I moved on to the inside.  

Stampin' Up! Spooky-Pumpkins-Cardiology by Jari

A strip of the same DSP as used on the front was added to the bottom of a Very Vanilla panel and I fussy cut out a cat and a witch hat with my Paper Snips to adhere with more liquid glue.  

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

Stampin’ Up! Winter Wonder CAS Christmas Card

I’ve got a really Clean and Simple Christmas card created from the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for today.  Can you believe it is already October 1st?  Wow, time is marching on, and I am so happy I have gotten started on my holiday cards.  Of course, I always think I have enough time, but somehow fall short every year.  How about you, have you started your Christmas cards?  Hopefully this simple card will give you some inspiration to get started if you haven’t.

Stampin' Up! Winter Wonder-Cardiology by Jari

I used the sentiment from the Star of Light stamp set and inked it in VersaMark ink, sprinkled on Gold Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  Then, I put the Whisper White panel inside the Winter Wonder TIEF and ran it through my Big Shot to dry emboss it.  

Stampin' Up! Winter Wonder-Cardiology by Jari

I matted the embossed panel with a panel of Gold Foil and popped it onto the Whisper White Thick card stock base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Three gold Metallic Enamel Shapes were added for some bling.

Stampin' Up! Winter Wonder-Cardiology by Jari

For the inside, I employed the sentiment from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set heat embossing it with more Gold Emboss Powder.  The snowflakes are from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlets Dies.  And, there you have it, a very CAS and quick Winter Wonder card!

Card stock cuts and a complete list of supplies will be found at the end of the post.

Stampin’ Up! Night in Bethlehem

I used the Stampin’ Up! Night in Bethlehem Bundle to create the card I am sharing for today.  

Stampin' Up! Night in Bethlehem-Cardiology by Jari

My Christmas card came together so quickly with these awesome Bethlehem Edgelits Dies!  I love the palm trees and the simulated village, don’t you?  This stamp set has beautiful sentiments, too.  Because I used the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper as my background, I did not add a sentiment to the front.  This sheet music works perfectly for a message, anyway.  The only stamping for the front was the shepherd image.  

Stampin' Up! Night in Bethlehem-Cardiology by Jari

There are two edgelits included in the Night in Bethlehem Bundle, and the background die was cut in Basic Black, the front die in Silver Foil.  

Stampin'Up! Night in Bethlehem-Cardiology by Jari

The star was die cut in Silver Foil and one Rhinestone Basic Jewel added to the center.  

Stampin' Up! Night in Bethlehem-Cardiology by Jari

I stamped the large sentiment and Mary and Joseph in Basic Black Archival ink.  Mary, Joseph and the donkey were die cut with the dies and added with Liquid Glue.

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

Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Sentiments Gift Box

I am sharing a Snowflake Sentiments Gift Box created with the Snowflakes Sentiments Bundle and the new Acetate Card Box found in the Holiday Catalog.  Every year, Stampin’ Up! provides the cutest pre-made boxes for us to decorate for gift giving, and this one is no exception!  If you don’t look carefully, it is easy to miss on page 13 of the Holiday Catalog.  They are designed for holding 5 standard cards and envelopes, but can also double as a gift box for anything your little heart desires.  

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments Gift Box-Cardiology by Jari

A couple of weeks ago, I created a card using the Snowflakes Sentiments Bundle and this same color scheme (see it HERE) so I decided to decorate my Acetate Box similarly.  Below is a side view when filled with cards and envelopes.

The Swirly Snowflakes Thinlets Dies are just so beautiful, don’t you think?  I cut two of the snowflake dies in Silver Foil, and two of the outline dies in Real Red, then adhered them with dots of Liquid Glue.  Because I positioned them horizontally on the Acetate Box, I had to trim the sides down some with my Paper Snips.  A narrow belly band was adhered to the snowflake cut outs with glue dots, and then the overlap in the back adhered with a few more Glue Dots.

The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark ink, sprinkled with White Emboss Powder and heat embossed, then die cut with an oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies. Another scalloped oval was cut from Garden Green, adhered to the sentiment and set aside.  I wrapped a strand of Basic Black Baker’s Twine around the belly band and box three times, made a looped bow and knotted it.  Then, the sentiment was popped onto the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Two small snowflakes were die cut from Silver Foil and adhered with a glue dot and a Rhinestone Basic Jewel adorns the center.  Finally, I cut two of the little tags found in the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlets Dies, one in white and one in plaid.  They were glued together and attached with a length of Silver Metallic Ribbon.  

Another adorable use of these Acetate Boxes is to fill them with candy.  Here is one I know you will love that was created by Amy Koenders, my upline.  

Well, what are you waiting for, order these Acetate Boxes and start making your own Snowflake Sentiments Gift Box today!  Starting October 1st, you can also get the Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper that I used for my card and belly band for FREE, when you buy 3 of the Designer Series Papers listed in the promotion below!

Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Christmas for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Christmas stamp set to create the card I am sharing for our blog hop today.  

Stampin' Up! Watercolor Christmas-Cardiology by Jari

 

Our sketch for this week:

Happy Inkin' Thursday Sketch

I started with a pattern from the Quilted Christmas DSP and adhered it to my Real Red card stock base.  Then, I created a banner with another pattern from the Quilted Christmas DSP and also adhered it to the center front of the card.  I cut a length of the pretty Quilted Christmas 1/4″ Ribbon, notched either end with Paper Snips and adhered it to the center of the banner with thin strips of Tear & Tape Adhesive.

Next, a Foil Snowflake was cut in half and adhered just above and below the ribbon with glue dots.  Don’t you just love the font of this sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Wishes stamp set?  It was stamped in Real Red and cut out with an oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies, then matted with a Real Red scalloped oval and a Garden Green regular oval shape.  The small Christmas tree is just one of three tree images from the set and stamped in Garden Green.

Stampin' Up! Watercolor Christmas-Cardiology by Jari

The inside sentiment was stamped in Real Red onto a Whisper White panel, a thin strip of coordinating DSP was adhered to the bottom of the panel and then both adhered to the card base with Liquid Glue.

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

 

Now, on to see the beautiful creation that Kristi has for us today….
