Seasonal Lantern Bundle for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Seasonal Lantern Bundle from Stampin’ Up! for the card I am sharing with you today.  We have a color challenge this week.

Stampin' Up! Seasonal Lantern-Cardiology by Jari

My card base is Pool Party card stock, and the next layer is a panel of Quilted Christmas DSP matted to a panel of Real Red card stock and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.   Next, I matted a panel of Christmas Around the World (Pool Party/snow) to a panel of Pool Party card stock and adhered it to the center of the card with Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Seasonal Lantern Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

Then, I stamped the lantern, candle, bow and greenery in Basic Black Archival ink and die cut them all with the Lantern Builder Framelits Dies.  I used my Pool Party, Emerald Envy, Crushed Curry, and Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers to color in all of the die cut images.  The candle was dry fitted into the lantern, then I stamped the candle flame above where the candle would be glued down in Crushed Curry ink.  The sentiment is one from the Seasonal Lantern stamp set and stamped in Basic Black Archival ink onto Whisper White.  I used my Paper Snips to notch either end, attached part of a Foil Snowflake with Liquid Glue, then added Stampin’ Dimensionals and popped it onto the narrow front panel.  Finally, the lantern was adorned with the greenery and bow, and then popped onto the front with more dimensionals.

The inside Whisper White panel was stamped with a sentiment from the Labels to Love stamp set.  Then, I stamped the floral image from Seasonal Lantern in Basic Black Archival ink, let it dry and then colored it in with Emerald Envy and Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers.  Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Smitten Mittens Bundle

I’ve got a fun Christmas card for you today using the Smitten Mittens Bundle from Stampin’ Up! 

Stampin' Up! Smitten Mittens-Cardiology by Jari

 

The sketch was inspired by the one for Freshly Made Sketches #311FMS #311

I started with two different patterns from the Quilted Christmas DSP and added a Whisper White mat to one and a Lemon Lime Twist to the other with Liquid Glue.  Then the panels were adhered with Liquid Glue.  

Stampin' Up! Smitten Mittens-Cardiology by Jari

I used the Many Mittens Framelits Dies to cut two Whisper White mittens and two Real Red mittens, then adhered them with Liquid Glue.  Next, I wrapped a double length of Whisper White Baker’s Twine around some of the Quilted Christmas Ribbon and tied a bow.  The ribbon was adhered to the back of the mittens with Glue Dots and then I adhered them to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The sentiment was stamped with Basic Black Archival ink and I used one of the dies that could be used for a mitten cuff to cut it out.

Stampin' Up1 Smitten Mittens-Cardiology by Jari

More of the ribbon was added to the bottom of my Whisper White panel by cutting a strip of Tear & Tape down the center horizontally, then to the ribbon.  The sentiment is another one from Smitten Mittens and stamped in Real Red ink.  Enjoy!

Merry Mistletoe for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Hop

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Time for another color challenge on Happy Inkin’ Thursday.  I used the Merry Mistletoe stamp set and Merry Little Christmas DSP to create the card I am sharing with you today.  

Happy Inkin' Thursday Color challenge

 

Stampin' Up1 Merry Mistletoe-Cardiology by Jari

I really like these colors together for Christmas cards, don’t you?  This card really went together quickly once I saw the colors we were using this week.  The Merry Little Christmas DSP was a big help, too!  I used Whisper White Thick card stock as my card base, as well as for the reindeer, that I fussy cut out with my paper snips.  A panel of Old Olive card stock was adhered to the card base, then I stamped the sentiment from Merry Mistletoe in Basic Black Archival ink onto a panel of regular Whisper White card stock.  I inked up the sentiment, then carefully wiped off the mistletoe “leaves” with a baby wipe and re-inked them with an Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker.  

Stampin' Up! Merry Mistletoe-Cardiology by Jari

Next, a panel of the plaid Merry Little Christmas DSP was adhered to the lower portion of the art panel.  A length of Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon was wrapped around the panel and a bow was tied.  Stampin’ Dimensionals were added to the back and then popped onto the Old Olive panel.  I used a few Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the reindeer and popped him on and two Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added to the mistletoe.  

Stampin' Up! Merry Mistletoe-Cardiology by Jari

The inside is also very simple, just a panel of Whisper White with the sentiment stamped in Basic Black Archival ink with one of the tree images from Merry Mistletoe stamped on either end in Old Olive ink.  Two Enamel Shape stars were added to the tree tops.  Enjoy!

A list of supplies and card stock cuts will follow.

Stampin’ Up! Year of Cheer for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Flurry of Wishes stamp set to create my card for this week’s blog hop.  We have a sketch challenge that I think you will enjoy!

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Stampin' Up1 Year of Cheer-Cardiology by Jari

The Year of Cheer DSP really makes it easy to create a stunning card with very little effort!  I started with a Whisper White Thick card stock base and adhered a panel of the plaid Year of Cheer DSP to it with liquid glue.  

Stampin' Up1 Year of Cheer-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I dry embossed a Champagne Foil panel with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Then, I popped it onto the front at an angle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Another panel from Year of Cheer DSP was adhered to the embossed panel with Glue Dots.  

I inked up the sentiment from Flurry of Wishes in VersaMark ink, sprinkled it with Gold Emboss Powder and heated it until smooth and shiny.  The sentiment panel was then matted with a little larger panel of Gold Foil.  A banner was cut using the Bunch of Banners Thinlets Dies and Gold Foil, cut in half and adhered to the sentiment with Glue Dots.  

The snowflake was die cut from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlets Dies and one Rhinestone Basic Jewel added for a little bling.  

Stampin' Up! Year of Cheer-Cardiology by Jari

More heat embossing for the inside sentiment, also from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set, and I finished it off with a little more of the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP on the back flap of the envelope.  Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Merry Mistletoe Christmas

I used the Merry Mistletoe stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create the Christmas card I am sharing with you today. 

Stampin' Up! Merry Mistletoe-Cardiology by Jari

Merry Mistletoe is a new stamp set this year, but is found in the Annual Catalog.  I by-passed it when the catalog came out last spring because I was not ready to think about Christmas cards!  But, it is really a great set, and the Be Merry DSP is really a favorite of mine, too.  The DSP is also included in the buy three get one free sale going on right now until the end of this month.  Don’t miss out on this great sale!  

The reindeer were stamped in Crumb Cake with the help of my Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement.  I stamped the middle one first, then the others.  Next, the sentiment was stamped in Cherry Cobbler right over the center reindeer.  A panel of the Be Merry DSP was adhered to a panel of Whisper White, then a length of Garden Green 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon was adhered to the center with Tear & Tape Adhesive.  The bow was then made and adhered with a Glue Dot.  

Stampin' Up! Merry Mistletoe-Cardiology by Jari

I left the inside panel plain with just a strip of the Be Merry DSP adhered to the bottom. 

Stampin' Up! Merry Mistletoe-Cardiology by Jari

For fun, I added a Cherry Cobbler Enamel Shape for a nose, one Metallic Enamel star, and stamped another reindeer on the envelope front.  

This card is a snap to create, and I think you will also love the Merry Mistletoe set, too!

A complete list of stamping supplies and card stock cuts are at the end of the post.

Christmas Pines Noel for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 

I used the Christmas Pines stamp set to create a Noel, or Christmas season card, for our hop today.  We are all playing with this sketch:

Happy Inkin' Thursday Noel sketch

Stampin' Up! Christmas Pines Noel-Cardiology by Jari

This stamp set and the Pretty Pines Thinlets dies are still a favorite of mine despite all of the wonderful new sets in the 2017 Holiday Catalog!  I started by dry embossing a panel of Garden Green with the Softly Falling embossing folder.  Then, I adhered two panels of the fun Be Merry Designer Series Paper with liquid glue.  I used some Stampin’ Dimensionals to then pop this panel onto my Cherry Cobbler card base. 

Stampin' Up! Christmas Pines Noel-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I stamped Noel in Cherry Cobbler onto a panel of Whisper White Thick card stock and fussy cut it out with Paper Snips.  I also stamped the scrolly banner from the Christmas Pines set in Garden Green and fussy cut it out.  Noel was then adhered to the banner with dimensionals.  Several pine boughs were die cut using the Pretty Pines Thinlets Dies  and adhered to the front panel with glue dots.  I added a couple of other sprigs of Cherry Cobbler to fill it out and popped the banner on with dimensionals.  Three Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added for some bling to the front.  

 

Stampin' Up! Christmas Pines Noel-Cardiology by Jari

For the inside, I stamped a pine bough in Garden Green, stamping off once on scrap paper, then stamped the sentiment right over it in Cherry Cobbler.  

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

Stampin’ Up! Smitten Mittens Bundle

I used the Smitten Mittens Bundle to create the card I am sharing with you today.  This Christmas card is another very quick and simple one to put together.

Stampin' Up! Smitten Mittens Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

I started with the Be Merry Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a panel of Cherry Cobbler with liquid glue.  Next, I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler in the center of a panel of Vellum card stock and let it dry while I worked on the other elements.

Stampin' Up! Smitten Mittens Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

Two mittens were stamped in Garden Green onto Whisper White Thick card stock, then die cut from the Many Mittens Framelits dies.  Next, I stamped and die cut two of the pretty snowflake images from the Smitten Mittens stamp set bundle.  One snowflake was stamped in Garden Green ink, the other in Cherry Cobbler ink, and each was adorned with one Rhinestone Basic Jewel.  The Vellum strip was adhered with a dot of glue where I knew the mittens would be placed, then I wrapped a length of Whisper White Baker’s Twine around the whole panel three times and tied a bow.  The mittens and the snowflake were added with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the art panel was adhered to the Garden Green card base with more dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! Smitten Mittens Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

The Whisper White panel on the inside was stamped with Garden Green for the sentiment and Cherry Cobbler for the row of hearts on the bottom.  The Cherry Cobbler snowflake was adhered with liquid glue and then the panel was adhered to the card base with more glue.

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

Stampin’ Up! Good Tidings for Christmas

I used the Good Tidings stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create the Christmas card I am sharing with you today.  

Stampin' Up! Good Tidings-Cardiology by Jari

The sketch inspiration is from the challenge over at Just Add Ink this week

Just Add Ink #380

Good Tidings is a two step stamp set, and all of the images except the sentiments are meant to be stamped twice.  Depending on your preference, you can either stamp the more solid image darker or stamp it off on scrap paper, then add the second image on top of it.   And, depending on your preference, you may stamp that second image lighter or darker.  I played around a little with each  set of leaves and berries until I got the coloring I wanted.  If you look carefully on the sheet the stamps come on, it is marked with numbers and letters. (1a, 1b, 1c, 1d, etc.)

Stampin' Up! Good Tidings-Cardiology by Jari

I used Old Olive on the holly leaves, Cherry Cobbler on the berries, and Early Expresso on the stem.  Since I was going to fussy cut out the holly, I stamped those images on Whisper White Thick card stock.  

Stampin' Up Good Tidings-Cardiology by Jari

I kept the inside very simple, with just a strip of the same Merry Little Christmas DSP adhered to the side of my Whisper White panel.  The sentiment is also from the Good Tidings stamp set.  

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

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Around the World

I created a really quick and easy card for today using the Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper.  And, Christmas Around the World DSP is on the list of papers for the Buy 3 Get 1 Free Sale going on right now through October 31st, at Stampin’ Up!  Yippee!

Stampin' Up! Christmas Around the World-Cardiology by Jari

There is no stamping required with this sentiment, just some fussy cutting with your Paper Snips!  Isn’t that cool?  Check out the pattern, there are all sorts of messages on it just waiting to be added to your cards or projects. First,  I dry embossed a panel of Real Red with the Brick Wall TIEF (textured impressions embossing folder), then adhered two coordinating panels from the Christmas Around the World DSP to it with Liquid Glue.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Around the World-Cardiology by Jari

I cut a length of Burlap Ribbon, folded it over, stapled it together, then added some Tear & Tape Adhesive and adhered it to the front of the embossed panel.  Next, I cut out a banner from Real Red using the heart strip die from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets Dies and notched one end using my Banner Triple Punch.  The banner was adhered to the sentiment bubble with some Liquid Glue, then I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the bubble over the Burlap Ribbon.  One of the cut out hearts from the banner was then added with a dimensional.  Finally, the art panel was popped onto the Real Red card stock base with more dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! Christmas Around the World

The inside sentiment is from the Hang Your Stocking stamp set, and more hearts were adhered with Liquid Glue.  The Very Vanilla panel was adhered to a panel of Pool Party and then to the card base.  

A complete list of stamping supplies and card stock cuts is at the end of the post.

Stampin’ Up! Merry Cafe for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 

Hi Stampers! We have a color challenge this week, and I used the Merry Cafe stamp set and Coffee Cups Framelits Dies to create the card I am sharing with you.

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe-Cardiology by Jari

I had so much fun with this Merry Cafe stamp set and these colors this week!  The Lemon Lime Twist and Real Red really make a statement together, don’t they?  Luckily, the Quilted Christmas DSP helped out with getting in all of the colors required.  

As you can see, I also got in some dry embossing with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the Lemon Lime Twist backdrop.  

Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe-Cardioloogy by Jari

The coffee cup images and lids were stamped onto the DSP, Garden Green and Real Red card stock with Soft Suede ink, then die cut out.  For the Whisper White cup sleeve, I stamped the sentiments on after die cutting it and added the holly berries and leaves, then went around the edges with my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker to give a defined border.  The Lemon Lime Twist cup sleeve was die cut from the die with the ridges and a Silver Foil snowflake from the Seasonal Layers Thinlets was adhered to the center of it.  

Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe-Cardiology by Jari

The Silver Foil swirl serving as steam is from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlets Dies.  I matted the red-checked Quilted Christmas DSP onto some Whisper White and then onto the Lemon Lime Twist panel.  A length of 1/4″ Ombre Lemon Lime Twist was wrapped around then, and a bow tied.  The coffee cups were adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then the whole art panel adhered to the Real Red card stock base with more dimensionals.  An extra sentiment from Merry Cafe was stamped in Real Red, cut out with the smallest banner from the Bunch of Banners Framelits, adhered with dimensionals and the front was complete.

Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe-Cardiology by Jari

More holly and berries and the sentiment were stamped onto a Whisper White panel, then a thin strip of the Quilted Christmas DSP was added to the bottom and my card was finished!  

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