Stampin’ Up! Better Together For a Friend

I used the Stampin’ Up! Better Together stamp set and the Swirly Scribbles Thinlets to create the card I am sharing with you today.  

Stampin' Up! Better Together Cardiology by Jari

 

The inspiration for my design is from the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #235  challenge this week:

PCC#235

 

I started by adhering a panel of Playful Palette to a panel of Very Vanilla, then adhered them to a panel of Wild Wasabi. Next, I added some Tear & Tape Adhesive to a length of Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon and carefully lined it up right at the point the Playful Palette strip met the Very Vanilla panel.  I made sure the ribbon was a little longer than my art panel so that I could also secure it to the back. 

Stampin' Up! Better Together Cardiology by Jari

I pulled out my Swirly Scribbles Thinlets dies and cut two Wild Wasabi “wreaths”.  They were not lined up exactly perfectly to create a little fuller looking wreath, dotted very carefully with Liquid Glue and set aside to dry.  Next, I stamped 3 of the rose images from Better Together in Flirty Flamingo onto a scrap of Pink Pirouette card stock and carefully cut them out with my Paper Snips.  But the leaves are green…..

Stampin' Up! Better Together Cardiology by Jari

Yes, so I stamped three more of the rose images ,this time in Wild Wasabi onto a scrap of Wild Wasabi card stock. Then, I carefully cut them out again with Paper Snips and decided to outline them a little more with my Wild Wasabi Stampin’ Write Marker.  I lined them up with my pink roses and used a little Liquid Glue to adhere them.

The sentiment banner came next.  It was stamped in Versa Mark onto a strip of Blushing Bride, sprinkled with Gold Emboss Powder and heat embossed.  I snipped a little off the end with my Banner Triple Punch and added it and the strip of Fabulous Foil DSP to the front of the card with Liquid Glue.  My roses were attached to the wreath with some Liquid Glue and some Dimensionals.  Then, the wreath was attached to the front with a lot of small pieces of Dimensionals.  This whole panel was then popped onto the Blushing Bride base and 3 Metallic Enamel Dots finished it off.

Stampin' Up! Better Together Cardiology by Jari

More Gold Embossing Powder was added to the inside sentiment, also from Better Together, and a single rose was added to the bottom corner.  This time, I used the ink to rubber method on the rose, using my Wild Wasabi and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Write Markers to color on the stamp.  And, I even decorated my envelope…

Stampin' Up! Better Together Cardiology by Jari

Card stock cuts and a supply list of the products used to create my card will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Basket Bunch Thank You

Today I am sharing the Basket Bunch Bundle from Stampin’ Up!  I just received this bundle last Sunday from my up-line, Amy, and have been dying to try it out.  Have I told you how much I love our quarterly team meetings?  We get together for lunch, have a business meeting, make projects and then receive prizes!  Woo-hoo!  I’d really love to have you on my team, you’d love it, too!  Make sure you get in touch with me if you are interested.

I made a Basket Bunch Thank You card on a Whisper White Note Card.

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Bundle Thank You by Cardiology by Jari

 

I started with a Crumb Cake panel that I dry embossed with the Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, then snailed it to a panel of Wild Wasabi card stock.  Next, I adhered a panel of the Carried Away DSP (free while supplies last during Sale-A-Bration) to a panel of Peekaboo Peach card stock.  Using the Basket Builder Framelits Dies, I cut out two bunches of grass in Wild Wasabi and attached it to the Peekaboo Peach panel.  A length of Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon was adhered to the bottom and the back with Tear & Tape Adhesive.  

 

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Bundle Thank You by Cardiology by Jari

Next, I stamped the rabbit and carrot images from Basket Bunch in Memento Black ink.  This ink does not stain the photopolymer stamps as much as other inks do.  I used a Blender Pen and carefully colored in the rabbit with Crumb Cake ink, making sure not to get it too wet.  I used Stampin’ Write Markers to color in the rest of the images.and then cut them all out with the dies.  The sentiment was stamped in Versa Mark, sprinkled with Gold Emboss Powder and heat embossed.  The banners were cut with the die from the Popcorn Box Thinlets.  

 

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Bundle Thank You by Cardiology by Jari

 

For the inside of my card, I stamped the grass in Wild Wasabi along the bottom of a panel of Whisper White.  I stamped the rabbit and the carrot in Memento Black ink and colored them in with Stampin’ Write Markers.  The sentiment was stamped in Peekaboo Peach.  So, how do you like it?  I know if you haven’t added the Basket Bunch Bundle to your stash, you really must consider it.  You’ll be seeing me post more with this set!

Stampin’ Up! Basket of Succulents for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 

I used the Oh So Succulent Bundle from Stampin’ Up! to create my Basket of Succulents card to share with you today.

Stampin' Up! Oh So Succulent Basket Cardiology by Jari

 

 

Here is the sketch for the week:

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 

I started by adhering two different patterns of the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper to a panel of Sweet Sugarplum Glimmer Paper (only available during Sale-A-Bration!).  Next, I wrapped a length of Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon around both panels adhering it with Tear & Tape Adhesive.  

Stampin' Up! Oh So Succulent Basket for Mother's Day by Cardiology by Jari

 

 

Then, I sponged a Lace Doily with some Sweet Sugarplum ink, cut it in half and adhered it to the left center.  I pulled out my Window Box Thinlets and created the basket bottom in Tip Top Taupe card stock with the scalloped die.  To add some interest to the basket, I also die cut the other flat die which created the strips used to make the ridges on the basket.  

Stampin' Up! Oh So Succulent Basket by Cardiology by Jari

 

 

All of the succulents in the basket were stamped twice because this is a two-step stamp set.  The first stamping was full strength, which created the outline of the succulent.  The second layer was stamped off once onto scrap paper before actually stamping onto my outlined succulent.  I used combinations of Old Olive, Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum and Calypso Coral inks.  The Happy Mother’s Day sentiment was stamped in Versa Mark and sprinkled with White Emboss Powder and heat embossed.  I used the small banner die from the Popcorn Box Thinlets to cut it out.  

 

Stampin' Up! Oh So Succulent Basket

I used part of the sentiment from Remarkable You for the inside of my card.  (The word And at the beginning of the stamp was left off.)  A few more succulents were added to the bottom along with another strip of the Succulent Garden DSP.  

All of the products used to create this card as well as the card stock cuts in inches will be at the end of the post.

Stampin’ Up! Thankful Life for TGIFc98

I used the Thankful Life Host Exclusive stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create my card to share with you today.  

 

Stampin' Up! Thankful Life by Cardiology by Jari

 

The inspiration for my card design is from the sketch at TGIFc98 this week

TGIFc98

Thankful Life, is a Host Exclusive set, which means you must Host a Stampin’ Up! event to purchase it, or you could join my Online Host Club and purchase it the month you are the host.  See all of the information about joining my Online Host Club farther down in my post.  

One of the things I love about Thankful Life is that it is a photopolymer stamp set and so easy to line up all of the images!  I stamped the vase first in Mint Macaron onto a panel of Whisper White, then added the three different images of flowers onto the panel.  I used Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach and Mint Macaron ink.   Then, I stamped one more vase in Mint Macaron and cut it out with my Paper Snips and added a bow with Linen Thread.  It was popped on top of the original stamped vase with Dimensionals.

I stamped one of the smallest butterflies from Papillon Potpourri in Watermelon Wonder, onto a panel of Peekaboo Peach and punched it out with my Bitty Butterfly Punch.  The sentiment is from All Things Thanks and was stamped in Tip Top Taupe, then die cut with the small banner from Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies.  I cut an extra banner in Tip Top Taupe and adhered it to the back of the sentiment banner.  I used a Mint Macaron Doily from the 2015-2017 In Color Doilies pack with a little Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper underneath it before adhering it to my Peekaboo Peach layers.  To add just a little more bling, I place three Rhinestones opposite the butterfly and popped the art panel and the banner onto the front with Dimensionals.

I stamped the Thankful Life sentiment in Tip Top Taupe ink, then stamped a butterfly in Peekaboo Peach.  A strip of the Playful Palette DSP that I used on the front was added to the bottom and all adhered to the Mint Macaron card stock base with liquid glue.  

A complete list of stamping supplies used to create this card will be at the end of my post along with card stock cuts in inches.

Spring Jar of Love for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Amy's Inkin' Krew Team Blog Hop

Spring, ah, spring!  A favorite time of year and our theme for this month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop.  So glad you have joined us today.  I used the Jar of Love Bundle from Stampin’ Up! to create my card to share with you.  

 

Stampin' Up! Jar of Love for Spring Cardiology by Jari

I started by tearing the edges of a panel of Whisper White card stock and then sponged the edges lightly with Crumb Cake ink and a Sponge Dauber.  Next, the water from Jar of Love was stamped onto a panel of Whisper White after I stamped it off once on a scrap piece of paper.  I just wanted the water to barely show.  The jar was stamped in Smoky Slate right over the water, then I cut it out using the Everyday Jars Framelits Dies.  

 

Stampin' Up! Jar of Love Spring card by Cardiology by Jari

 

I stamped several of the flower images from Jar of Love, using colors I think of in spring.  This is a two step stamp set, meaning for some of the images, you stamp twice.  I decided to use Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo, Wild Wasabi, Mint Macaron and Crumb Cake in the arrangement.  To achieve the two color look in the flowers, I stamped off the base of the flower before actually stamping it onto Whisper White, then came back with the second stamp full strength. The stems and leaves were stamped full strength.

Next, I adhered the jar onto the torn panel.   Then, I  stamped some stems in the water and a couple of greenery sprigs right onto the torn panel just above the jar top so they would peek out of the arrangement.  All of the flower heads and leaves were die cut and I began to put the spring arrangement together using Liquid Glue and Dimensionals.   I had some stray strands of Burlap Ribbon that had been pulled apart, so I put them together and tied a bow for the top of the jar.

I left the inside fairly plain for writing and added 3 left over small flowers to the right bottom with Liquid Glue.  

A complete list of Stampin’ Up! products used to create my spring card and card stock cuts in inches will be at the end of my post.  


 

Now, I hope you’ll hop on over to see what Mary has created for our Spring themed Blog Hop today!

Stampin’ Up! Custom Tee Bundle of Fun

My share for you today is a fun duo from the Custom Tee Bundle from Stampin’ Up! Yesterday, several of my team members from Amy’s Inkin’ Krew got together for our quarterly in person meeting and made these adorable Tee Shirt cards.  I’ve been posting a lot lately about joining Stampin’ Up! as a demo and explaining how much fun our team has together.  Well, yesterday did not disappoint!  For a rainy, cold Sunday afternoon, it seemed warm and sunny with my fellow stampers.  Several of us live in the greater Atlanta area so we make the trip fairly easily (my drive is only an hour and a half :)), but for those not in the area, they join us on Google Chat.  So, if you are possibly thinking of joining my team, I say just jump on in!  Some of the team are hobby stampers and some are running a  business, but whatever the reason, we all have fun!  Contact me today if you have any questions about becoming a Stampin’ Up Demonstrator, now is the best time to join because of the benefits offered during Sale-A-Bration.  Okay, now for the cards….

 

Stampin' Up! Custom Tee Bundle Cardiology by Jari

 

Aren’t they fun?  The T-shirt Builder Framelits Dies are so helpful, too!  And, if you hurry, you can get the Designer Tee stamp set for free during Sale-A-Bration for even more fun images for your T-shirts.  The thing I love the most about the Custom Tee stamp set is that it is photopolymer and there are 35 stamps included!  

Stampin' Up! Custom Tee Bundle Cardiology by Jari

 

The happy stamper t-shirt card uses Tangerine Tango and Pacific Point for the paper and the inks.  The Georgia Bulldog fans in the room were not too happy when I reminded them these were Florida Gator colors, and of course, I had to do the Gator Chomp a couple of times!  The circle die cut behind the t-shirt was water colored first with a little Pacific Point ink.  The little strip used a a banner is silver foil paper that was snipped at an angle on one end.  

 

Stampin' Up! Custom Tee Bundle Cardiology by Jari

This card uses Smoky Slate, Basic Gray, Very Vanilla and Delightful Dijon card stock and Smoky Slate and Basic Blace archival inks.  The necktie was stamped in Smoky Slate onto the Smoky Slate panel as a background.  Urban Underground Washi Tape is flanking the Basic Gray sentiment strip.  The necktie for the Delightful Dijon shirt was stamped in Smoky Slate and then every other stripe colored in using a blender pen.  

Card stock cuts for each Custom Tee card as well as all of the supplies needed to create them will be at the end of my post.
