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.

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.

Stampin’ Up! Sunshine Wishes Valentine for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew

Amy's Inkin' Krew Share the Love Blog Hop

 

Happy Valentine’s Day and welcome to our Share the Love Blog Hop, compliments of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew!  I made a Sunshine Wishes Valentine to share today, with some help from Thoughtful Banners and the Love Notes Framelits Dies.  
Sunshine Wishes Valentine

I used the Falling Petals Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and dry embossed a panel of Whisper White, and set it aside.  Then, I made a banner with my Banner Triple Punch and some Pop of Pink DSP.  Next, I cut out some hearts with more of the Pop of Pink, Melon Mambo and Basic Black.  I pulled out the Love from Sunshine Wishes and die cut it in Melon Mambo three times.  The arrow is from the Love Notes Framelits Dies.

 

Sunshine Wishes Valentine

 

 

Before stamping the You sentiment, I arranged all of the hearts and the banner on top of the Whisper White embossed panel to make sure of placement.  Then, it was stamped in Basic Black Archival ink.  The banner was adhered first, then, I adhered Love onto the largest heart with liquid glue.  All of the larger hearts were popped onto the front with dimensionals, and the smaller ones glued on.  

 

Sunshine Wishes Valentine

 

For the inside of my card, I added a strip of the dotted Pop of Pink DSP to the bottom of a Whisper White panel, then also added some left over small hearts.  Finally, I adhered the inside panel to the Whisper White card base with liquid glue.  There you have it, my Sunshine Wishes Valentine!  When you put different stamp sets and framelits together, you can come up with some amazingly different types of cards! 

A complete list of Stampin’ Up! products used to create this Sunshine Wishes Valentine as well as card stock cuts will be at the end of my post.

Star of Light for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Elegant Christmas Hop

Amy's Inkin' Krew Blog Hop

Welcome to our monthly Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop.  As you can see, our theme is Elegant Christmas, so for my share, I am using the Stampin’ Up! Star of Light stamp set.   

 

Star of Light

 

Whisper White and Silver Foil together do not photograph easily!  Especially for a novice photographer like me.  I really love this Star of Light stamp set and the Starlight Thinlets Dies.  Bundle them and save 10%!  There are so many wonderful sentiments and wow, don’t you just love that star die?  

 

Star of Light

 

 

First, I stamped the swirl image onto a panel of Whisper White. using Versa Mark ink and Heat & Stick Powder.  I heat embossed it briefly, then sprinkled on the Silver Stampin’ Glitter and completed the heat embossing.  I used the same process on the large star image, then die cut it.  The sentiment and small stars are also from Star of Light and they were stamped with Versa Mark ink and sprinkled with Silver Emboss Powder and heat embossed.

 

Star of Light

 

For the inside of my card, I die cut one of the other stars from the Starlight Thinlets Dies from a panel of Silver Foil DSP.  I stamped the Star of Light sentiment in Versa Mark ink, added Silver Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. The die cut star was then glued just above it.

Card stock cuts in inches and products used will be at the end of my post

Fall for Petals & Paisleys

Amy's Inkin' Krew Blog Hop

 

Thanks for stopping by for our Fall/Halloween Blog Hop!  I decided to create a Fall card using the Paisleys and Posies stamp set and the Paisley Framelits Dies Bundle for my share today. We are finally getting some beautiful fall weather and I know the leaves will be changing soon.  This Petals & Paisleys Designer Series Paper reminds me of those Fall leaves!  

 

Fall

 

This card came together very quickly, too!  I started with  a Delightful Dijon card base, and layered a panel of Mint Macaron card stock on top with liquid glue.  Next, I cut a panel of the beautiful Petals & Paisleys Designer Series Paper and layered it onto a little larger panel of Very Vanilla.  Then it was time for some stamping and die cutting!

 

Fall

 

I inked up the sentiment from Paisleys & Posies in Versa Mark onto a panel of Very Vanilla, and sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, then heat embossed it. It is die cut with a Layering Oval Die, then framed with a little larger Mint Macaron scalloped Oval Die.  I pulled out some Gold Foil card stock and the “leaf” shaped die from the Paisley Framelits Dies and die cut 2.  Burlap Ribbon was adhered to the DSP layers with Tear & Tape adhesive, then I popped that layer onto the card base.  Some Delightful Dijon and Mint Macaron 3/8″ Ribbon and Gold Sequin Trim are tied to the leaves with Gold Baker’s Twine and attached to the sentiment and then popped onto the front with dimensionals.

 

Fall

The inside sentiment is also from Paisleys & Posies and again, stamped in Versa Mark ink and Gold Embossing Powder.  A strip of Gold Foil lines the strip of Petals & Paisleys Specialty DSP  at the bottom of the Very Vanilla inside panel.  

Supplies will be listed at the bottom of my post.

Last Blast of Summer for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew

Amy's Inkin' Krew

 

 

Welcome to our Last Blast of Summer Blog Hop from Amy’s Inkin’ Krew!  If you live in the south, you know we have a while to go until summer is officially over, but if you have children in school already, then SUMMER IS OVER!!  I love the beach, so I had fun making this card and dreaming of my last blast of summer coming up soon….

 

 

Last Blast of Summer

 

I started by stamping the beach umbrella from Weather Together in Bay and Daffodil Delight onto a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock, then die cut them with the coordinating Umbrella Weather Framelits.  I also die cut the trim for the umbrella from that same set in Daffodil Delight and adhered it with liquid glue.  Next, I die cut Sunshine from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets three times in Gold Foil and carefully glued them together with liquid glue. I die cut two of the Swirly shapes for my sun image from Swirly Scribbles

 

Last Blast of Summer

 

 

I just love the Serene Scenery DSP, especially the one I chose for the background for this Last Blast of Summer card!  I used the ground image from Sheltering Tree to stamp a little more sand in Crumb Cake ink for the umbrella to rest in.  So that it was not too dark, I stamped off once on scrap paper, then onto the DSP.   The Shell and Starfish images from Seaside Shore, are also stamped in Crumb Cake, but full strength and then fussy cut with my Paper Snips.

 

Last Blast of Summer

 

My swirly sun, the starfish, and Sunshine were adhered with liquid glue, the umbrella and shell with dimensionals. this panel is framed with a panel of Bermuda Bay, then popped onto the Crumb Cake card base with dimensionals.  

 

Last Blast of Summer

 

 

The sentiment for the inside of the card is from Sunshine Sayings and is stamped in Bermuda Bay.  For the bottom of the card, I created a little more beach sand with more Crumb Cake ink using the same ground image as from the front, and added more starfish and a shell.  The Very Vanilla panel is framed in Bermuda Bay.  

So, what will you do for your Last Blast of Summer?   I am headed to the beach in a few days, YEA!!
