Stampin’ Up! Many Mittens & Snowflakes Sentiments

I used the Many Mittens Framelits Dies and the Snowflakes Sentiments stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create a Christmas card to share with you today.  

Stampin' Up! Many Mittens & Snowflake Sentiments-Cardiology by Jari

 

My card design was inspired by the sketch at the Paper Players this week.

Paper Players PP#367

I started by adhering a panel of Christmas Around the World DSP, that is one of the Buy 3 get 1 FREE sale going on right now until the 31st, to the Pool Party card stock base with liquid glue. The banner was cut from another panel from the Christmas Around the World DSP and punched on one end with my Banner Triple Punch.

Next, I die cut one large Whisper White plain mitten and one large Whisper White cut-out mitten from the Many Mittens Framelits Dies and adhered them with tiny dabs of Liquid Glue.  A length of Pool Party Solid Baker’s Twine was wrapped around the mitten and  finished with a bow.  I stamped the sentiment from Snowflake Sentiments in VersaMark ink, sprinkled it with Silver Emboss Powder and heat embossed it on a panel of Basic Gray card stock.  Then the sentiment was die cut with an oval and framed with a little larger scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits in Silver Foil.  

A length of Silver Metallic Thread was wound around and adhered to the mitten with a Glue Dot, then the mitten and the sentiment ovals were popped onto the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally, three Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added for some sparkle.

The inside sentiment was stamped in Basic Gray ink.   The two snowflakes were die cut from the Seasonal Layers Thinlets Dies in Silver Foil.

Stampin’ Up! Merry Mistletoe Christmas

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

Stampin' Up! Merry Mistletoe-Cardiology by Jari

Merry Mistletoe is a new stamp set this year, but is found in the Annual Catalog.  I by-passed it when the catalog came out last spring because I was not ready to think about Christmas cards!  But, it is really a great set, and the Be Merry DSP is really a favorite of mine, too.  The DSP is also included in the buy three get one free sale going on right now until the end of this month.  Don’t miss out on this great sale!  

The reindeer were stamped in Crumb Cake with the help of my Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement.  I stamped the middle one first, then the others.  Next, the sentiment was stamped in Cherry Cobbler right over the center reindeer.  A panel of the Be Merry DSP was adhered to a panel of Whisper White, then a length of Garden Green 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon was adhered to the center with Tear & Tape Adhesive.  The bow was then made and adhered with a Glue Dot.  

Stampin' Up! Merry Mistletoe-Cardiology by Jari

I left the inside panel plain with just a strip of the Be Merry DSP adhered to the bottom. 

Stampin' Up! Merry Mistletoe-Cardiology by Jari

For fun, I added a Cherry Cobbler Enamel Shape for a nose, one Metallic Enamel star, and stamped another reindeer on the envelope front.  

This card is a snap to create, and I think you will also love the Merry Mistletoe set, too!

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

Merry Cafe & Pick a Pumpkin for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 

I used the Merry Cafe and Pick a Pumpkin stamp sets to create my card for our color challenge today.  (And some help from the Colorful Seasons Bundle, too) 

Happy Inkin' Thursday

hStampin' Up! Merry Cafe Pick a Pumpkin-Cardiology by Jari

All three of these stamp set/bundles have become favorites of mine! I started with the wood grain panel of Coffee Break DSP and dry embossed it with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.  Remember when using these thicker folders, spritz your paper lightly with water.  The embossed panel was adhered to a panel of Early Expresso, then I adhered a banner cut from another panel of the Coffee Break DSP and my Banner Triple Punch.  These were then popped onto the Tangerine Tango base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe-Pick a Pumpkin-Cardiology by Jari

 

The small leaf image from the Merry Cafe stamp set was stamped in Early Expresso ink onto a panel of Wood Textures DSP and the lid was stamped in Early Expresso onto Tangerine Tango.  Both were die cut with the Coffee Cups Framelits.  The sentiment was stamped in Tangerine Tango, die cut and then the edges were sponged with Early Expresso ink.  The pumpkins, from Pick a Pumpkin, were stamped and die cut with the Patterned Pumpkin Thinlets Dies.  The large veined leaf, from Colorful Seasons, was stamped in Early Expresso.  The smaller leaf is also from Colorful Seasons and was stamped in Lemon Lime Twist onto Lemon Lime Twist paper, die cut, then sponged with Early Expresso ink around the edges.  

Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe-Pick a Pumpkin-Cardiology by Jari

For the inside, I chose to add one more of the pumpkins from the Pick a Pumpkin Bundle and added a little vine in Lemon Lime Twist.  Enjoy!

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

Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Thanks

I used the Painted Harvest and All Things Thanks stamp sets to create my clean and simple card for today.

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Thanks-Cardiology by Jari

My card base is Whisper White Thick.  I embossed a Whisper White panel with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF, then adhered it to a panel of Peekaboo Peach. (The panel was spritzed with a little water before dry embossing it)  I wrapped a length of Linen Thread around the layers three times, made several loops of more Linen Thread and created a bow.  The sunflower was stamped three times in Daffodil Delight, rotating my stamp each time about a quarter turn, then I stamped the smaller sunflower image in Peekaboo Peach twice, also rotating each time. The center was stamped in Soft Suede ink. Finally, I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede ink. 

My art panel was die cut with a Stitched Shapes square die, then framed with a little larger scalloped square in Peekaboo Peach using the Layering Squares Framelits Dies.  Three Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added for some bling and I left the inside blank for writing a message.

Card stock cuts and a supply list will be at the end of the post.

Stampin’ Up! Season to Sparkle and Blog Candy Winner!

On Saturday, I posted an announcement for a Blog Candy give-away, and today I am happy to announce a winner!  All of your comments were great, and I wish I could give a prize to everyone!  Here is what I am giving away:

Cardiology by Jari Blog Candy Give-Away

The Random Number Generator chose the #2 comment out of the 20 I received for that post.  

Blog Candy Winner

And, the lucky winner is Sandy!  Sandy said,

 Thank you for an opportunity to Win! I have been eyeing that stamp set for awhile!”

Please contact me so that I can get your prizes to you, Sandy!

 

I loved reading all of your comments, and want to say a huge thank you to all of you.  Your comments are what keep me going-especially on days I am not sure I have the creativity to get a card done!!

 

 I chose the Season to Sparkle Bundle to create a Christmas card to share with you today.  

Stampin' Up! Season to Sparkle Cardiology by Jari

This card came together rather quickly because of the large chandelier image which takes up most of the card front.  It was stamped in Versa Mark ink, sprinkled with Silver Emboss Powder, then heat embossed onto my Cherry Cobbler panel.  I also stamped the ornaments in Versa Mark, and embossed them in Silver Emboss Powder, then cut them out with the Chandelier Thinlets Dies.  This stamp set bundle can be used for Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day and even for a wedding card.  I love it when you can get a lot of mileage from one bundle!  

Stampin' Up! Season to Sparkle-Cardiology by Jari winner

I stamped the sentiment in Basic Black Archival ink onto a panel of Silver Foil and then used my Bunch of Banners dies to cut a banner that was popped on with some Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I used some Silver 1/8″ Ribbon to create a bow and adhered it with Glue Dots.  For a final touch, I added a few Metallic Enamel Shapes to the banner and above each ornament.  

Stampin' Up! Season to Sparkle-Cardiology by Jari winner

The inside Cherry Cobbler panel was stamped with a sentiment and star bursts also found in the stamp set. All were stamped with Versa Mark ink, sprinkled with Silver Emboss Powder and heat embossed.

Stampin’ Up! Color Me Happy & Stampin’ Blends

I used the newly released (right now, just for demonstrators) Color Me Happy stamp set and the Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers to create my card for today.  Both items will be available soon for customers!  I will give you the details as soon as they are made available to me!  

Stampin' Up! Color Me Happy-Cardiology by Jari

Here is a look at the stamp set with lots of fun images to color.   

Stampin' Up! Color Me Happy

I started by stamping the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then began to color the shadow part in Night of Navy, using the darker of the two markers in the set.  Next, I colored in the rest of the letters with the lightest Old Olive markers and punched one end with my Banner Triple Punch. A second banner was cut from Night of Navy card stock for a mat for the sentiment banner.  The flower image from Color Me Happy was also stamped first in Memento ink, then I began with the darker shade of the two Daffodil Delight markers around the flower center.  The lighter shade was then blended to fill in the whole space.  

Stampin' Up! Color Me Happy-Cardiology by Jari I adhered the banners with some liquid glue, then stapled a small length of the Night of Navy 1/2″ Gingham Ribbon to the corner.  The flower was fussy cut with my Paper Snips.  I added a couple of leaves that were die cut from the Flourish Thinlets to the back with Glue Dots, then popped it onto the banner with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  One Rhinestone Basic Jewel was then added to the flower center.  

Stampin' Up! Color Me Happy-Cardiology by Jari

The card base is Night of Navy, with a panel of Old Olive adhered over it with liquid glue.  The next layer is Whisper White and Merry Little Christmas DSP adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The last step was to pop the banner onto the front with more dimensionals.  For the inside, I finished it with a panel of Whisper White with a strip of the Merry Little Christmas DSP added to the bottom, leaving room for a note.  

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

Christmas Pines Noel for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 

I used the Christmas Pines stamp set to create a Noel, or Christmas season card, for our hop today.  We are all playing with this sketch:

Happy Inkin' Thursday Noel sketch

Stampin' Up! Christmas Pines Noel-Cardiology by Jari

This stamp set and the Pretty Pines Thinlets dies are still a favorite of mine despite all of the wonderful new sets in the 2017 Holiday Catalog!  I started by dry embossing a panel of Garden Green with the Softly Falling embossing folder.  Then, I adhered two panels of the fun Be Merry Designer Series Paper with liquid glue.  I used some Stampin’ Dimensionals to then pop this panel onto my Cherry Cobbler card base.

Next, I stamped Noel in Cherry Cobbler onto a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock and fussy cut it out with Paper Snips.  I also stamped the scrolly banner from the Christmas Pines set in Garden Green and fussy cut it out.  Noel was then adhered to the banner with dimensionals.  Several pine boughs were die cut using the Pretty Pines Thinlets Dies  and adhered to the front panel with glue dots.  I added a couple of other sprigs of Cherry Cobbler to fill it out and popped the banner on with dimensionals.  Three Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added for some bling to the front.

For the inside, I stamped a pine bough in Garden Green, stamping off once on scrap paper, then stamped the sentiment right over it in Cherry Cobbler.  

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

Stampin’ Up! Smitten Mittens Bundle

I used the Smitten Mittens Bundle to create the card I am sharing with you today.  This Christmas card is another very quick and simple one to put together.

Stampin' Up! Smitten Mittens Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

I started with the Be Merry Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a panel of Cherry Cobbler with liquid glue.  Next, I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler in the center of a panel of Vellum card stock and let it dry while I worked on the other elements.

Stampin' Up! Smitten Mittens Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

Two mittens were stamped in Garden Green onto Whisper White Thick card stock, then die cut from the Many Mittens Framelits dies.  Next, I stamped and die cut two of the pretty snowflake images from the Smitten Mittens stamp set bundle.  One snowflake was stamped in Garden Green ink, the other in Cherry Cobbler ink, and each was adorned with one Rhinestone Basic Jewel.  The Vellum strip was adhered with a dot of glue where I knew the mittens would be placed, then I wrapped a length of Whisper White Baker’s Twine around the whole panel three times and tied a bow.  The mittens and the snowflake were added with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the art panel was adhered to the Garden Green card base with more dimensionals.

The Whisper White panel on the inside was stamped with Garden Green for the sentiment and Cherry Cobbler for the row of hearts on the bottom.  The Cherry Cobbler snowflake was adhered with liquid glue and then the panel was adhered to the card base with more glue.
