Count My Blessings for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Amy's Inkin' Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome to our monthly team blog hop.  This month, our theme is Giving Thanks, and I used the Count My Blessings stamp set to create my card.  

Stampin' Up! Count My Blessings-Cardiology by Jari

This sentiment from Count My Blessings is a favorite of mine.  I just love the message as well as the font, don’t you?  I used the Layered Leaves Textured Embossing Folder to create some interest on the Crushed Curry panel, then added banners from two of the pretty patterns from the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.  The leaves are from the Painted Harvest stamp set, stamped in Garden Green and Lemon Lime Twist and punched out with the Leaf Punch.  I also used the Patterned Pumpkin Thinlets for the three Early Expresso sprigs.

Once the sentiment was stamped, I used the largest Stitched Shapes circle die to cut it out and matted it with a scalloped circle from the Layering Circle Framelits Dies.  A length of Burlap Ribbon was adhered to the front with some Tear & Tape Adhesive, then I attached the leaves and sprigs to the back of the sentiment panel with Glue Dots and popped it onto the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally, the art panel was popped onto the Crushed Curry card base with more dimensionals.

For the inside, I stamped the sentiment in Early Expresso ink  and added a strip of the Painted Autumn DSP to the bottom of the Very Vanilla card stock before adhering the whole panel to the inside with Liquid Glue.  

A complete list of stamping supplies and card stock cuts will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! At Home With You-Fall CAS Card

Today I am sharing a very CAS (clean and simple) card using the At Home With You Bundle, with a little help from some “friends”.  Because I wanted a fall themed card, I not only used the fall elements from At Home With You, but also the sentiment from Seasonal Lantern.  And, since fall is typically the time of year we tend to re-count our blessings, I got some help with a sentiment from the Count My Blessings stamp set.  

Stampin' Up! At Home With You-Cardiology by Jari

I was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #304, which is clean and simple.

FMS#304

My card started with a panel of Cajun Craze that was adhered to a panel of Very Vanilla with liquid glue.  Next, I adhered a panel of the beautiful Painted Autumn DSP to a narrow panel of Cajun Craze and then dry fit it to the card to determine where I’d like the sentiment stamped.  Using my Stamp-a-ma-jig, I stamped each word separately so that they would be stacked.  The DSP panel was then glued to the Very Vanilla panel.  

A double strand of Linen Thread was wound around the narrow panel and a bow tied, the back was secured with some tape.  

Stampin' Up! At Home With You-Cardiology by Jari

I stamped the floral image from At Home With You in Basic Black onto a panel of water color paper, then colored in each part using an Aqua Pen and the tops of my stamp pads.  Once dry, I cut it out with the corresponding die from the At Home Framelits.  The die cut piece was added with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and then the whole circle panel to the front with more dimensionals.  One heart shaped Cajun Craze enamel shape was added for some bling.  Finally, the whole art panel was adhered to the Very Vanilla card base with dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! At Home With You -Cardiology by Jari

I kept to the CAS look for the inside, adding more of the DSP used on the front to the bottom of my Very Vanilla panel. I stamped the sentiment from Count My Blessings in Cajun Craze, then glued the panel to the Very Vanilla base.  

A complete list of stamping supplies as well as card stock cuts are at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Count My Blessings Sneak Peek

I’m sharing another sneak peek of the Stampin’ Up! Count My Blessings stamp set available September 1st.  I’m also sharing a peek at the beautiful Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper, from the 2017 Holiday Catalog.  You are going to love this paper for your fall cards, and you’ll see its not just for fall, too!   Make sure you sign up for my Holiday Catalog Paper Share to receive this beautiful paper as well as a sampling of all of the new papers.  See the details below.  

Stampin' Up! Count My Blessings-Cardiology by Jari

I started by adhering a panel of the Autumn Harvest Designer Series Paper (available September 1st) to a panel of Lemon Lime Twist.  Yes, I am using this for a fall card!  It is truly versatile, isn’t it?  Next, I stamped the flower image from the Count My Blessings stamp set in Basic Black Archival ink onto a panel of water color paper.  I also stamped the smaller flower/leaf image once on the left side of the middle image and once on the right side in Basic Black ink.  Then, using my Aqua Painter and Lemon Lime Twist, Tangerine Tango and Cajun Craze inks, colored in the images.  

Stampin' Up! Count My Blessings-Cardiology by Jari

Once the art panel was completely dry, I adhered it to a panel of Tangerine Tango card stock with liquid glue and then to the DSP panel with more glue.  Then, I adhered the art panel to the Tangerine Tango card stock base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Count My Blessings-Cardiology by Jari

I stamped the sentiment from Count My Blessings in Early Expresso ink onto another panel of watercolor paper and punched one end with my Banner Triple Punch.  For the opposite end of the banner, I wound a length of Linen Thread around a couple of times and tied a bow.  I cut a Delicate White Doily to peek out from under the banner and adhered it to the banner with glue, then popped the banner onto the front with dimensionals.  One Gold Metallic Enamel Shape Heart was added to the front and my card was complete!  

The inside is finished with a strip of the same Autumn Harvest DSP adhered to a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  Make sure you add the Count My Blessings stamp set to your Wish List, you will love it!

Stampin’ Up! Count My Blessings Sneak Peek!

Today I am sharing the new Count My Blessings stamp set from the upcoming 2017 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  Count My Blessings is available for purchase on September 1st.  It is part of the Painted Autumn Suite.

Stampin' Up! Count My Blessings-Cardiology by Jari

I noticed that the acorn leaf image from Count My Blessings was similar to a leaf image from the  Lovely As A Tree stamp set.  I always loved that leaf image, so I paired it up with my card today!  

The leaf image from Lovely As A Tree was stamped randomly in Crumb Cake ink onto a panel of Crumb Cake card stock. Then, I matted that panel to Early Expresso card stock and adhered them to the Crumb Cake card stock base with liquid glue.  

Stampin' Up! Count My Blessings-Cardiology by Jari

Next I matted a strip of the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (available Sept. 1st) to a panel of Early Expresso and adhered them to the card front with some liquid glue.  I stamped the small leaves image from Count My Blessings in Garden Green on a banner of Garden Green card stock and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 


Stampin' Up! Count My Blessings-Cardiology by Jari

The acorn/leaf image from Count My Blessings was stamped in Basic Black Archival ink onto a panel of watercolor paper.  I used my Aqua Painter and the lids of my Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Garden Green ink pads to color it in., then I used my Paper Snips to cut it out.  While it was drying, I stamped the large sentiment in Early Expresso onto Very Vanilla card stock and cut it out with a Stitched Shapes oval die.  I tied a double bow with Linen Thread and adhered the acorn art piece to the banner with liquid glue.  My oval sentiment was added with dimensionals and three Garden Green enamel shapes were added for additional color.  

sStampin' Up! Count My Blessings-Cardiology by Jari

For the inside Crumb Cake panel, I used more of the leaf and leaf and acorn images to stamp around the outer edges in Crumb Cake ink, stamping off on scrap paper first.  In my mind, I had planned on stamping the sentiment in Early Expresso, but forgot-UGH-until I was glueing it down onto the Early Expresso frame.  The Crumb Cake really doesn’t show as well as I would have liked, but I decided not to re-do it!  Enjoy!
