I used the upcoming stamp set, Going Global, from the Stampin’ Up! 2016 Occasions Catalog for my card for the Happy Stampers Team Blog Hop today.

And here is the sketch we are working with:

10408699_1282829091743663_6821449687025678401_nFirst, the largest panel of the Going Places DSP was stamped with the Big Dipper stamp in Basic Black.

Going Global Card-iology by Jari

The globe shape was punched from the Going Places DSP with my 2″ Circle punch and layered onto two other coordinating panels from the same DSP with Dimensionals.  The sentiment banner was stamped with Basic Black onto a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and also popped up on one end with Dimensionals.  The opposite end was snailed to part of the globe.

Going Global Card-iology by Jari

A panel of Basic Black cardstock was dry embossed with the Lucky Stars TIEF and glued to the Delightful Dijon card base.  The entire art panel was then popped onto the front with Dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I chose Watercolor Words for the sentiment

 

Going Global and Watercolor Words Card-iology by JariI stamped with Gorgeous Grunge to create a sort of “galaxy” with Basic Black ink, onto a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.   Then, I stamped the sentiment from  Watercolor Words, in Basic Black.  The stars were punched from Gold Foil with the Itty Bitty star Accent Punch and attached with glue dots. I glued the sentiment panel onto a panel of Basic Black and then that panel was also glued to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

You will be able to order this stamp set, Going Global, and the Going Places DSP beginning January 5, 2016,  Yippee!!  Let me know if you have not received an Occasions Catalog so that you can begin to make up your wish list!

Stampin’ Up! Party Wishes Birthday Card

I used the Party Wishes stamp set and the Party Punch Pack from the 2016 Occasions Catalog for my birthday card for today:

PartyWishes Card-iology by Jari

The Cherry on Top DSP helps to make this card quick and easy to put together!  I added a panel of the balloon DSP onto the Watermelon Wonder card base with multipurpose liquid glue then worked on the sentiment.

PartyWishes Card-iology by Jari

I cut out a circle with my Circles Framelits Dies and stamped the candles from the Party Wishes set which had been inked with Pool Party and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write markers.  I used the XOXO stamp from the new Bloomin’ Love set also available in January.  The balloons and string are also from the Party Wishes set and were stamped with Watermelon Wonder, Pool Party and Bermuda Bay inks-the balloon strings stamped with Daffodil Delight ink.  I then punched the balloons out with the new balloon punch from the Party Punch Pack.  It includes the balloon, a cupcake and candle punch and is available as a bundle (save 15%)with the Party Wishes stamp set.

PartyWishes Card-iology yby Jari

The banner is stamped with happy birthday from the Birthday Blossom stamp set in Watermelon Wonder ink.  Now for the inside:

Stampin’ Up! Hello You & Antique Tags

11960226_1268896359803603_8583437756952711798_n

I used the Stampin’ Up Hello You Thinlets Dies and Antique Tags stamp set to create my card for today’s Happy Stampers Team Blog Hop.  We are all using a combination of Basic Black, Gold and White for the color challenge this week.

12122424_1282828851743687_6516475459135264794_n

 

These colors remind me of a celebration, so I decided a New Year’s card would be fun:

 

Hello You and Antique Tags Card-iology by Jari

 

I love how easily this card came together once I decided what I wanted to do!  The Hello You Thinlets really came through for this burst of sentiment, and the Antiques Tags stamp set is perfect for the theme of the card.  (Wait for the inside!)

 

Hello You and Antique Tags Card-iology by JariI die cut the word happy twice from the Hello You thinlets dies and glued them together with the Fine Tip Glue Pen.   The sentiment was stamped from Antique Tags and notice that only part of the image was used here.  I taped off the parts I did not want to use before stamping with Versa Mark ink.  I removed the tape, then stamped onto a panel of Whisper White cardstock and sprinkled on Black Embossing powder.  Once dry, I used the banner from the Gift Card Envelope and Trims Thinlets Dies to cut out the sentiment.

Hello You and Antique Tags Card-iology by JariThe banner was framed with another banner cut from Gold Glimmer paper and attached to my sentiment banner with Multipurpose liquid glue.  The card base is Basic Black with a panel of Gold Glimmer paper attached to it with Multipurpose liquid glue, I cut out stars with the Itty Bitty accents star punch and the star from the Mini Treat Bag thinlets set in Gold Foil and Gold Glimmer paper, attached them with glue dots, glued down the gold happy sentiment with the Fine Tip Glue Pen, added a Gold Metal button with Gold Cording to the small sentiment and popped it onto a panel of striped Neutrals DSP with Dimensionals.  Finally, the sentiment panel was also popped onto the card base with Dimensionals.

Antique Tags Card-iology by JariThe inside was finished off with the whole New Years stamp image from Antique Tags with Basic Black Archival ink onto a panel of Winter Wonderland Vellum. Before stamping it, I attached the DSP to a panel of Whisper White cardstock with specs of glue from the Fine Tip Glue Pen, then I added strips of Winter Wonderland Washi Tape to the top and bottom for a finishing touch!

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

Stampin’ Up! Cozy Christmas

I used the Cozy Christmas stamp set from Stampin’ Up! for my card today:

Cozy Christmas Card-iology by Jari

The Home for Christmas DSP has been so versatile for so many Christmas cards, too!  Don’t you just love it when a card comes together quickly?

Cozy Christmas 001 Card-iology by Jari

I started by cutting out a circle of the Home for Christmas DSP with one of my Circles Thinlets Dies, making sure I centered the tree and packages.  Next, I adhered a panel of the Silent Night sheet music from the same pack of DSP to a panel of Real Red with Multipurpose glue.  I cut the striped panel from the Home for Christmas DSP and adhered it to the Mint Macaron card base with MP glue.  Then, I cut a length of Mint Macaron 1″ Dotted Lace Trim and wrapped it around the sheet music panel and tied a bow.  This panel was then popped onto the card base with Dimensionals.

Cozy Christmas 3 Card-iology by Jari

I trimmed off the left side of my Christmas tree circle and popped it onto the front with Diimensionals, then added the Home for Christmas designer button (star) with a glue dot to the top of the tree.  I fussy cut the stacked packages and added that piece with Dimensionals.  The sentiment from Cozy Christmas was stamped first in Versa Mark ink, then sprinkled with Black Stampin’ Emboss powder and heated with my Heat Tool till set.  I used the banner die from the Gift Card Envelope and Trims dies to cut it out, then added a Home for Christmas Enamel Dot to the end before I popped it onto the front with Dimensionals.

Cozy Christmas 6 Card-iology by Jari

The inside sentiment, also from Cozy Christmas, was colored with Mint Macaron, Real Red, Mossy Meadow and Delightful Dijon Stampin’ Write markers and stamped onto a panel of Very Vanilla card stock

Card stock cuts in inches may be found at the end of this post.

Stampin’ Up! Wonderland for the Happy Stampers Team Blog Hop

11960226_1268896359803603_8583437756952711798_n

Hi Stampers, it’s Thursday, and another Happy Stampers Team Blog Hop.   So glad you joined our color challenge this week!

HSBH12063381_1282828331743739_2651464956254442325_nI used the wonderful Wonderland stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create my card for today.  It is one of my favorite stamp sets from the Handmade for the Holidays catalog this year.  It is not returning, so, you need to order it quickly before it retires forever.  You have until January 4th, 2016, and then it is gone.

The colors this week really helped to make this a fun Christmas Card.  I sponged the Whisper White panel with Soft Sky and Night of Navy inks after I had masked off the moon image with a post it note punched out with the 1 1/2″ circle punch.

Then I stamped the Wonderland trees in Night of Navy-some full strength and some using the stamping off technique across the panel.Wonderland 2 Card-iiology by JariThe snowflakes were stamped in Versa Mark ink and dusted with Silver Embossing Powder and heated with my Heat Tool till shiny and dry. Then I did the same with the Santa and his sleigh image from the Cozy Christmas stamp set. The image panel was glued to a panel of Night of Navy cardstock with Multipurpose glue, then a length of Night of Navy 1/2″ seam binding ribbon attached to the bottom with a little tear and tape. Next, I glued this piece to a panel of Silver Foil with Multipurpose glue and popped it onto the Soft Sky card base with Dimensionals.

The inside images from Wonderland were stamped with Night of Navy ink and Versa Mark with Silver embossing powder.  I chose the sentiment from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set and also used Versa Mark with Silver embossing powder and heat embossed it.

Card stock cuts are at the end of the post.
