Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome back to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  My Colorful Seasons Thanks card was created with the Colorful Seasons Bundle (available June 1st).  Here are our colors for this week:

Happy Inkin' thursday blog hop color challenge

Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons Thanks-Cardiology by Jari

I started by doing a little watercolor wash in So Saffron on some Canson Watercolor Paper with my Aqua Painter. Once it was dry, I stamped Thank You, from One Big Meaning, in Early Expresso ink right onto the art panel.  Next, I die cut the tree limb from the Seasonal Layers Thinlets Dies(available June 1st as a bundle with Colorful Seasons stamp set) in Early Expresso card stock.  I used small dabs of Liquid Glue to adhere it to the art panel, then stamped the flowers.  Each of the flowers was stamped in Calypso Coral onto Whisper White Thick card stock, some full strength, and a couple of them stamped off once.

The flowers were adhered with Liquid Glue and Dimensionals.  The branch looked too lonely without a bird sitting on it, so I die cut the smallest bird from the Birds & Blossoms Thinlets in Early Expresso.  I cut a small piece of Calypso Coral paper to add under his wing, and punched a small circle in So Saffron for his eye.  He was then adhered to the panel with dimensionals.  The whole art panel was then popped onto the Early Expresso card stock base with dimensionals.

Whisper White card stock was layered onto So Saffron with liquid glue, then adhered to the Early Expresso base with more liquid glue.  I adhered more of the small flowers to the corner with liquid glue and left room for writing a note.

A complete list of stamping supplies used to create the Colorful Seasons Thanks card will be at the end of the post, along with card stock cuts in inches.

Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons Bundle

I’m sharing my new favorite stamp set bundle from the upcoming 2017-2018 Annual Catalog, the Colorful Seasons Bundle (available June 1st).  I love it because it can be used all year round and has wonderful sentiments.  Plus, don’t you just love this die cut Adirondack chair?  

Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

The sketch inspiration is from Freshly Made Sketches FMS#285

 

I started with a Whisper White panel and stamped it with the Gorgeous Grunge (retiring) stamps in Crushed Curry. Because it was going to be the background, I stamped the images off onto a scrap paper first.  Next, I stamped the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons Bundle, in Early Expresso directly onto the art panel.  The sun was die cut with a die from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlets and glued down.

I die cut the Adirondack chair from the new Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (available June 1st) and the die from the Colorful Seasons Bundle.  The gulls were drawn on with an Early Expresso Stampin’ Write Marker and I adhered the art panel to a panel of Crushed Curry card stock with more glue.  Next, I cut thin strips from my Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered them to the back of the chair and popped it onto the card front.  The new Berry Burst ink was used to stamp the glass and straw, then die cut using the Seasonal Layers Thinlets Dies.  Once the glass was adhered just above the chair arm, I popped the whole front onto the Lemon Lime Twist card base with more Dimensionals. 

Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons Bundle-Cardiology by Jari The inside sentiment is also from the Colorful Seasons set and stamped in Early Expresso ink.  I used Lemon Lime Twist for the flowers and the centers are Berry Burst.  

A complete list of supplies including card stock cuts will be at the end of the post.

Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasons Sneak Peek

I’m sharing a sneak peek of the new Colorful Seasons Bundle from the Stampin’ Up! 2017-2018 Annual Catalog with you today.  This set caught my eye at OnStage and I was so glad it was part of the pre-order for demonstrators.  I love it because it is a photopolymer stamp set and it can be used year round!  I am crazy about the sentiments, too

Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons Cardiology by Jari

Colorful Seasons (available June 1st), is part of the Color Theory Suite of products.

The inspiration for my Colorful Seasons card came from one found in the new catalog!  I will be sending out new catalogs in the middle of May to all of my customers who have purchased at least $50 of products from my online store in the last 12 months.  If you’d like a free catalog, make sure you qualify for one so I can send you yours.  Also, if your address has changed, I need you to update your profile ASAP.

I started by adhering a panel of the new Color Theory Designer Series Paper (available on June 1st) to a panel of Whisper White.  Then, I pulled out the ground image stamp from Sheltering Tree and stamped it in Crumb Cake ink on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  Next, I pulled out one of the large swirls from the Swirly Bird stamp set and stamped it in Crushed Curry ink in the upper left hand corner to represent the sun.

The chair was stamped first in Crumb Cake, then in Crushed Curry.  I stamped one of the sentiments from Colorful Seasons in Versa Mark ink, dusted it with Copper Emboss powder and heat embossed it.  The little daisy type flower is from Swirly Bird and was fussy cut with my Paper Snips.  My art panel was framed with a panel of Crushed Curry.  I wrapped a length of the new Copper Trim (available June 1st) around the first layered panel and tied a bow, then popped the art panel on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally, the bottom layer was also popped onto the Crushed Curry card base with dimensionals.

Don’t you love this inside sentiment?  I first stamped the flower images from Colorful Seasons in Crushed Curry, then inked my sentiment stamp in Versa Mark and heat embossed it with Copper Embossing Powder.  

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

Part of the fun of being a Stampin’ Up!
