Stampin’ Up! Season to Sparkle Bundle

I used the Season to Sparkle Bundle to create the Christmas card I am sharing with you today.  

Stampin' Up! Season to Sparkle-Cardiology by Jari

I started with a Whisper White Thick card stock base, then adhered panels of Real Red and Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper with Liquid Glue.  

Stampin' Up! Season to Sparkle-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I used the beautiful Chandelier Thinlets Dies and Silver Foil to create the chandelier.  I stamped the holly and berries and used another die from the set to cut it out.  The ornaments were stamped with VersaMark ink, sprinkled with Silver Emboss Powder and heat embossed until smooth and shiny.  The coordinating die made it a snap to cut them out. 

Stampin' Up! Season to Sparkle-Cardiology by Jari

The chandelier and ornaments were adhered with several Stampin’ Dimensionals that had been trimmed to fit the narrow pieces.  A bow was created with Silver Metallic thread and Silver Mini Sequin Trim, then attached with Glue Dots.

My sentiment was stamped in Real Red, then a banner created with one of the Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies.  

Stampin' Up! Season to Sparkle-Cardiology by Jari

The inside sentiment is also from Season to Sparkle.  I added one more of the ornaments created earlier and stamped a bow just above it.  

This Season to Sparkle Bundle is another versatile set from the Holiday Catalog.  It has sentiments for Halloween, and Valentine’s Day as well.  What else can you envision this set creating?  

Card stock cuts and stamping supplies needed to create the card are at the end of my post.

Cardiology by Jari Irmageddon Update!

Hi Stampers!  I just wanted to give an update of my situation.  My last post was on the 14th, for our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop and I told you about my power outage.  I had hoped to be back to stamping and posting cards by tomorrow, but it will still be a few days before I am up and running again.  Please don’t give up on me! 

We regained power at my home in Georgia on Friday night.  Yippee!  But, on last Thursday morning, I drove to Florida to pick up my Mother who still has no power.  She lives in a mobile home park and the temperatures outside are well over 90 degrees, leaving her home feeling like an oven!  Lots of trees are still down in her section so no word on how long it will take to regain power there.  

Fortunately, I have a home in Florida that did not lose power, so we are here for the duration.  I did not bring any of my stamping supplies, so I am just about to go crazy with stamping withdrawal!  

We certainly have a lot to be thankful for as many neighborhoods near me are still under water and the power is still out.  The grocery shelves are almost bare, but I live near a Wal-Mart Distribution Center and the lines of semi trucks in and out is amazingly long.  So, there is an end in sight for some.  

Thanks for being loyal followers, I will keep you posted and hopefully be back home soon to all my stamping supplies.

Craft Project Central Bonus Project for August

Craft Project Central Bonus ProjectCraft Project Central Bonus Project for August

Today I am sharing the last project for the month of August from Craft Project Central.  The project was created by Regina Andari at www.workinoutthekinks.blogspot.com 

Create a pocket full of pretty cards that feature fun Watercolor Pencil techniques.  One of the techniques featured in this tutorial demonstrates how to use one pencil to get the shading and coloring of two or three colors, but your favorite might be the “Cheater’s Reflection” technique.  It is so easy and lends such a nice focal point for any card!  Besides the fun pencil techniques, you’ll also learn how to make your own coordinating dimensional embellishments!  If you decide to make this lovely ensemble to give to someone special, you’ll appreciate that there’s a tutorial for a pretty and simple pocket holder for the four cards.

*Bonus projects can be obtained by subscribing to any of the three, six or 12 month subscription packages, that include the month for which you would like the bonus. 

Make sure to visit www.craftprojectcentral.com to find out all of the details for joining this subscription site.   Whether you’re a new or seasoned Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, or an avid crafter looking for fun crafting ideas, Craft Project Central offers ideas for workshops, classes, clubs and just plain fun crafting!

Stampin’ Up! Easter Basket for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!  I created an Easter basket from the Stampin’ Up! Basket Bunch Bundle for our Hop today.  

 

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Easter Basket by Cardiology by Jari

 

 

We had a sketch to work with this week.

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop Sketch Challenge

I started by layering  panels of Succulent Garden and Mint Macaron In-Color DSP (both retiring!) onto a panel of Sweet Sugarplum card stock.  Next, I die cut some grass from the Basket Builder Framelits Dies in Mint Macaron and adhered it to the front with liquid glue.  I die cut a Stitched Shapes square from more of the Succulent Garden DSP and gave it a scalloped border with some more Sweet Sugarplum card stock.  

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Easter Basket by Cardiology by Jari

My Easter basket was stamped in Soft Suede onto Crumb Cake card stock and die cut out.  Next came the eggs, cut out with the Basket Builder Framelits from Mint Macaron (retiring!), So Saffron and Sweet Sugarplum card stock.  Each one has 2 layers, one with cut outs and one solid.  I brushed some Wink of Stella over them to give them a little pizzaz! Next, came the bunny,stamped in Memento Tuxedo black and colored in with some Pink Pirouette and Sweet Sugarplum markers.  The banner was stamped in Versa Mark, sprinkled with White Emboss Powder and heat embossed.  

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Easter Basket by Cardiology by Jari  I didn’t use all of the eggs for the Easter Basket, but save a few for the inside.  My sentiment  is from the March Paper Pumpkin kit and stamped in Sweet Sugarplum ink.  More of the striped DSP was added to the inside bottom with snail. 

A list of stamping supplies needed to create this card as well as card stock cuts in inches are at the end of my post.  


 

I hope you’ll hop around to Kristi to see what she and the others have created for today.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Home and Home Sweet Home

Today I am sharing a couple of fun projects using the Sweet Home Stamp Set and the Home Sweet Home Thinlets Dies.  Every few months, my upline, Amy, has a team meeting where the whole team (Amy’s Inkin’ Krew) gets together to discuss important Stampin’ Up! business and stamp together! These were what we made yesterday at our team meeting:

 

Sweet Home

 

Isn’t this little Sweet Home the cutest?  And, when you buy the stamp set and the thinlets together, you can save 10%.  

When making the house, a great tip Amy gave us was to embellish the house pieces first while it is still flat.  Another great tip is if you are adding some candy cane strips on either side of the door as I did, make sure not to put your door and its frame too close to that side. (Ask me how I know!!)  Also, once you have decorated your Sweet Home, begin adhering it together from the top (roof) down.  

 

Sweet Home

 

 

My Pool Party Panel was stamped first with the snow image from Christmas Pines in Pool Party ink.

The card sentiment is from Tin of Tags.  It was stamped in Versa Mark ink and heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  

For the snow bank, we used a die from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlets and die cut a panel of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, then glued it to the Pool Party card stock.

A list of all of the products used in creating the projects will be at the bottom of my post.  (And a little surprise, too)

Love & Congrats for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

 

Welcome to another Thursday and the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  We’re here to share some of our ideas with you to get your creative juices flowing!  Today, I’m sharing a wedding card full of Love & Congrats, compliments of the Sunshine Sayings stamp set and Sunshine Wishes Thinlets Dies from Stampin’ Up!  (Bundle and save 10%-Yes!)

Here are the colors we had to work with.  Pretty, right?  Why not see what you can create with these….

 

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

 

Here is what I came up with:

 

Love & Congrats

 

First, I stamped some “grunge” from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set onto a panel of Mint Macaron.  I inked up the stamp with Mint Macaron and stamped it off onto a piece of scrap paper before actually stamping it onto my card. Then, I adhered that panel onto a panel of Rich Razzleberry with liquid glue.  

 

Love & Congrats

 

My next task was to create the sentiment, so I die cut three Rich Razzleberry Congrats, using the die from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets.  I like to die cut several so that the letters pack a little more punch on the card.  They were adhered with my Fine Tip Glue Pen (just small dots).  The hearts were also die cut with Sunshine Wishes Thinlets.  I cut four of them and created 2 hearts for the front, adhering again with the Fine Tip Glue Pen.  Once I decided where all of the die cuts would go, I adhered them to the front of the double layered panel.  Notice that the heart on the right is not glued totally down, it is only attached where the two hearts touch at the bottom.  

 

Love & Congrats

 

The flower images were created with the Jar of Love Bundle, and I used Rich Razzleberry, Mint Macaron and Delightful Dijon inks on a panel of Whisper White, then die cut them.  Also included in the Everyday Jars Framelits is a die that created those small white hearts I used as accents.  Some of the flowers are adhered directly to the front, while a few are popped on with dimensionals.  A length of Rich Razzleberry ribbon was adhered with Tear & Tape, and then the panel was popped onto the Whisper White Thick Cardstock base with dimensionals.

 

Now for the Love portion to my Love & Congrats card:

 

Love & Congrats

 

I searched and searched my stamps and finally found Wishing you on a stamp in the Suite Sayings set that was really meant as an Easter sentiment!  I just taped off the part I did not want to stamp, used my Stampin’ Write marker on the words I wanted, and stamped!  A Lifetime Of is from Sunshine Sayings, and the love part of Love & Congrats is another die from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets.  

 

 

Now it’s time to head over to see what Kristi has created today.  Just click on the forward arrow.  A list of our Happy Stampers is listed below in case you want to “hop” around again.

Stampin’ Up! Jolly Friends Moose!

My share today is from Jolly Friends, and I am showcasing the Moose stamp.  Each of the characters in this stamp set is adorable, but I especially like this Jolly Moose!

 

Moose

 

 

 

My sketch was inspired by the one at Freshly Made Sketches.  FMS254

I started by dry embossing a Whisper White card stock panel with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The embossed panel was adhered to the Whisper White card base with liquid glue.  

 

Moose

 

Next, I concentrated on Mr. Moose.  The Moose image, from Jolly Friends, is stamped in Early Expresso ink onto Kraft Cardstock.  I then fussy cut him out with Paper Snips.  The main part of the hat is stamped in Real Red onto Whisper White and punched out with the Jolly Hat Builder Punch.  I punched a scrap of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper for the pom-pom and band of the hat.  The scarf is Real Red stamped onto Whisper White and fussy cut out.

Two long strips of Designer Series Paper were added to the front of the card with liquid glue.  Then, I die cut a scalloped square of Emerald Envy card stock with one of the Layering Squares Framelits Dies and popped it onto the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added the scarf to the square with glue, then popped the moose and his hat just above the scarf with dimensionals.  The Merriest Wishes sentiment is from the stamp set with the same name.  It is stamped in Emerald Envy and die cut with the banner from the Gift Card Envelope and Thinlets Dies.  The second Real Red banner is attached to the sentiment banner with a glue dot.  The little star is from the Metallic Enamel Shapes.

To complete the inside of the card, I added a panel of the emerald envy polka dot DSP onto the card base with liquid glue.  Then I  stamped the sentiment from Tin of Tags in Real Red  onto a Whisper White panel that had  a strip of Candy Cane Lane Washi Tape added to the bottom.  This panel was attached then with liquid glue.

Wonderful Year for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

 

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Happy Stampers Blog Hop, where I am sharing Wonderful Year from Stampin’ Up!   We’re glad you stopped in to “hop” around to all of our blogs.  Today, we have a sketch challenge, why don’t you play along, too?

Wonderful Year

 

I started with a panel of Whisper White for the card base.  Next, I adhered a panel of Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper to a panel of Emerald Envy with liquid glue.  This is my go-to adhesive because it is forgiving-meaning it will allow you to wiggle your card stock a little if you haven’t placed it as straight as you wanted to at first!

I love the large sentiments in Wonderful Year, perfect for the season.  I really thought of coloring my stamp with my Stampin’ Write Markers to give it some depth, but for a quick and easy card, one color does the trick.  I used Cherry Cobbler and stamped it on a panel of Whisper White, then gave it a frame with some Emerald Envy card stock.  

 

Wonderful Year

 

I made a bow with my Bow Builder Punch, using some Cherry Cobbler card stock and Cherry Cobbler striped paper from the Regals Designer Series Paper Stack. Before adding the bow to the front of my card, I added a strip of Cherry Cobbler card stock to the left side with liquid glue.  The bow is attached with Mini Glue Dots.  I then popped on the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added one Metallic Enamel Shape star.

 

 

 

Wonderful Year

 

 

The inside sentiment from Wonderful Year was inked with Cherry Cobbler and Emerald Envy Stampin’ Write Markers, huffed on a couple of times, and stamped onto the Whisper White card stock panel.  I added some more of the striped Cherry Cobbler DSP and three Metallic Enamel Shapes stars before adhering this panel onto the card base.

Card stock cuts in inches and Stampin’ Up! Products used will be listed at the end of my post.
