Stampin’ Up! Hearts Come Home for Christmas

I used the Hearts Come Home stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create another Christmas card for today.  

 

Stampin' Up! Hearts Come Home-Cardiology by Jari

The inspiration for the sketch is from Hand Stamped Sentiments #272

HSS #272

And I’m also playing with the Just Add Ink Challenge, #386.

My R is ribbon.  Just Add Ink #386

I layered some plaid from the Christmas Around the World DSP onto a panel of Basic Black with liquid glue, then popped that panel onto the Old Olive card stock base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! Hearts Come Home-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I stamped the house images from Hearts Come Home across the top of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped two trees and fussy cut them, then popped them in between the houses with dimensionals.  I used the ink to rubber method to stamp the sentiment in the lower right corner with my Real Red and Basic Black Stampin’ Write Markers.  The art panel was then adhered to a panel of Basic Black and I used some of the Quilted Christmas ribbon to tie a bow, then popped it onto the card front with dimensionals.

The inside sentiment can also be found in the Hearts Come Home set and was stamped in Real Red.  I also stamped the Christmas tree image in Old Olive and added one Enamel Shapes heart to the other side. Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Good Tidings for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Hop

Amy's Inkin' Krew Team Blog Hop

I used the Stampin’ Up! Good Tidings stamp set to create a card for our Merry Christmas themed blog hop for this month.  

Stampin' Up! Good Tidings-Cardiology by Jari

Good Tidings is such a beautiful stamp set with an awesome focal sentiment, don’t you think?  One of my team members featured this stamp set in a recent blog hop we did together and her colors inspired me when I was creating this card.  See Kristi’s card HERE.  

I love the green, black and red colors Stampin’ Up! chose for Christmas cards this year.  Stamp the holly leaf solid image in Old Olive, then stamp the second detail stamp in Basic Black.  Stamp the solid berries in Real Red, then stamp the second berry image on top in Cherry Cobbler.  The stem was stamped in Early Expresso for both of the images, then I fussy cut the whole thing out with Paper Snips.  Create the smaller holly image using the same basic colors.

(Hint:  stamp onto Whisper White Thick card stock)

Stampin' Up! Good Tidings-Cardiology by Jari

A panel of the Merry Music Specialty DSP was adhered to the front of my Whisper White Thick card stock base.  The largest sentiment from Good Tidings was stamped in Basic Black Archival ink onto a panel of Whisper White, then  the panel was adhered to the front with liquid glue.  I cut one of the Foil Snowflakes in half and also added it with liquid glue.  The large holly image was popped on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  A bow was then created with some of the Old Olive 1/8″ sheer ribbon, Silver Sequin Trim and a small length of Black Baker’s Twine and adhered with a glue dot.  

Stampin' Up! Good Tidings-Cardiology by Jari

The inside Whisper White panel was stamped with the smaller sentiment from Good Tidings in Basic Black, then another holly with berries was stamped directly above the sentiment.  Enjoy!

Now, for more of the hop.  We hope you enjoy all of your stops today!

Blog Candy Winner

And, the lucky winner is Sandy!  Sandy said,

 Thank you for an opportunity to Win! I have been eyeing that stamp set for awhile!”

Please contact me so that I can get your prizes to you, Sandy!

 

I loved reading all of your comments, and want to say a huge thank you to all of you.  Your comments are what keep me going-especially on days I am not sure I have the creativity to get a card done!!

 

 I chose the Season to Sparkle Bundle to create a Christmas card to share with you today.  

Stampin' Up! Season to Sparkle Cardiology by Jari

This card came together rather quickly because of the large chandelier image which takes up most of the card front.  It was stamped in Versa Mark ink, sprinkled with Silver Emboss Powder, then heat embossed onto my Cherry Cobbler panel.  I also stamped the ornaments in Versa Mark, and embossed them in Silver Emboss Powder, then cut them out with the Chandelier Thinlets Dies.  This stamp set bundle can be used for Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day and even for a wedding card.  I love it when you can get a lot of mileage from one bundle!  

Stampin' Up! Season to Sparkle-Cardiology by Jari winner

I stamped the sentiment in Basic Black Archival ink onto a panel of Silver Foil and then used my Bunch of Banners dies to cut a banner that was popped on with some Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I used some Silver 1/8″ Ribbon to create a bow and adhered it with Glue Dots.  For a final touch, I added a few Metallic Enamel Shapes to the banner and above each ornament.  

Stampin' Up! Season to Sparkle-Cardiology by Jari winner

The inside Cherry Cobbler panel was stamped with a sentiment and star bursts also found in the stamp set. All were stamped with Versa Mark ink, sprinkled with Silver Emboss Powder and heat embossed.  

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

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.

Stampin’ Up! Smitten Mittens Bundle

I’m sharing some fun cards created yesterday at our quarterly in person Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Meeting!  And, as the name says, I am smitten by this stamp set bundle.  So cute and fun to work with!  Thanks go out to our team leader, Amy Koenders, for designing the cards and supplying us with all of the products needed to create them.  

Stampin' Up! Smitten Mittens Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

The sentiment on the horizontal card is from the Hug in a Mug stamp set, and the vertical card’s sentiment is from the Hearts Come Home stamp set.  Aren’t these the cutest?  

Stampin' Up! Smitten Mittens Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

We used the Be Merry Designer Series Paper for this card, as well as Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler inks and paper.  The Cherry Cobbler 1/4″ Double Stitched Ribbon really sets it off, too.  

Stampin' Up! Smitten Mittens Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

Real Red and Garden Green were our go to colors for this one and we used the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to make the perfect back drop for the mittens!  Here are some shots of the team hard at work and having fun!

Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Lantern Bundle

I used the Seasonal Lantern Bundle from Stampin’ Up! to create the card I am sharing with you today.  Stampin’ Up! again created a very versatile bundle to use for fall, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas holiday celebrations.  I love being able to create several different cards with just one set, don’t you?  

Stampin' Up! Seasonal Lantern Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

 

The Lantern Builder Framelits Dies include some duplicates to allow you to cut out multiple pieces at once, also!

Stampin' Up! Seasonal Lantern-Cardiology by Jari

I paired some Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper with Old Olive, Real Red and Basic Black card stock for a back drop to the lantern oval.  My sentiment was stamped in VersaMark ink, sprinkled with Silver Emboss Powder and heat embossed to give it a little twinkle!

Stampin' Up! Seasonal Lantern-Cardiology by Jari

For the inside, I chose a sentiment from the Watercolor Christmas stamp set and heat embossed it with Silver Emboss powder, too.

Stampin' Up! Watercolor Christmas-Cardiology by Jari

There is minimal stamping, just mostly cutting your panels and adhering them to the card base and adding a bow.  

Stampin' Up! Watercolor Christmas-Cardiology by Jari

I used VersaMark ink and Gold Emboss Powder to keep with my gold and white theme for the sentiments.  The inside sentiment is from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set.

Deck the Halls with Stampin’ Up! Carols of Christmas

I know, it’s a little early to deck the halls, but who can resist the new Carols of Christmas Bundle available now from Stampin’ Up!  Deck the Halls with Carols of Christmas-Cardiology by Jari

I started with a Basic Black card stock base and adhered a panel of the new Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper (available Sept. 1st) to the front.  The black and olive green plaid paper is really fun for Christmas cards, and I like the fact that it is not just for the holiday season.  

Deck the Halls-Cardiology by Jari

I used the Card Front Builder Thinlets Dies (part of the Carols of Christmas Bundle) to create the Basic Black card stock frame. Using my Stamp-a-ma-jig and Versa Mark ink, I stamped Deck the Halls in the center of the frame and sprinkled it with White Emboss powder then heated it until smooth and shiny.  I repeated the stamping sequence with the design above the sentiment and also the flower below it.  

The Basic Black frame was then adhered to another panel from the Merry Little Christmas DSP (available Sept 1st) with liquid glue.  

Deck the Halls-Cardiology by Jari

A bow was punched from another panel of  the Merry Little Christmas DSP (available Sept 1st) using my Bow Builder Punch.  Isn’t it the cutest?  Next, the art panel was popped onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the final step for the front was to add a Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the center of the flower.  

Deck the Halls-Cardiology by Jari

For the inside, I chose a Whisper White panel and stamped the ornament image from Carols of Christmas in Old Olive ink.  The sentiment is from Better Together and also stamped in Old Olive.  A little strip of the plaid paper from the front was adhered to the bottom and then the sentiment panel adhered to the card base.  

Don’t wait too long to Deck the Halls with this great new stamp set!  Details for ordering are below.  

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

Wishing You Joy and a Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all of you! Wishing you joy and happiness on this most special day!  Thank you for following my blog, leaving encouraging comments, and sharing my posts on Pinterest and Facebook!  I used the Hello December 2016 Project Life Accessory Pack to create my card for today.  

 

Joy

I started with Whisper White Thick card stock for my card base and added strips of washi tape (provided in the accessory pack) to the top and bottom of the front.  Next, I pulled out two of the acetate specialty cards and layered them together.  The bottom acetate layer has white and silver trees.  The top acetate layer is the silver “joy”.  Next, I cut out a panel of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper the same size as the acetate layers and glued it to acetate by dotting small specks of glue on each Christmas tree shape.  

 

Joy

 

I cut a panel of Silver Foil card stock as a frame for the acetate layers and glued them together.  Three stars from the accessory pack were added to the front under the sentiment.  Finally, I added dimensionals and popped the art panel onto the front of the card.  

 

Joy

I think my favorite part of the card is the inside sentiment.  I used the Stampin’ Up! Star of Light stamp set for this.  It was stamped with Versa Mark and Silver Emboss Powder sprinkled over it.  Then, I flicked off the excess and heat embossed it.  The sentiment panel is Whisper White with Silver Foil layered underneath it.  For the final touch, I added more of the washi tape to the very bottom.  

You will find a list of supplies as well as card stock cuts in inches at the end of the post.

Wonderful Year for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Stampers Blog Hop

 

Welcome to our Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  I am sharing a card using Wonderful Year from Stampin’ Up!  Wonderful Year has two very large sentiments that create quite a statement for your Christmas cards this year.  

 

Here is our color challenge for this week:

 

wonderful for Happy Stampers

 

wonderful Year

 

I began by inking up the Wishing You a Joyful Christmas stamp from Wonderful Year in Cherry Cobbler ink.  Before stamping, I used a baby wipe to clean off the bough and berry image on either side of the sentiment.   Then, I used my Emerald Envy Stampin’ Write marker to color them in, huffed all over the ink and stamped onto a square panel of Whisper White card stock.  I added two Cherry Cobbler Enamel Shapes where the berries would be.  A frame of Emerald Envy card stock was adhered to the sentiiment panel with liquid glue.  

 

Wonderful Year

 

I cut a narrow panel from Presents & Pinecones DSP (part of the buy 3 get 1 free sale going on right now), and glued it to a panel of Emerald Envy card stock (striped) from the 2016-2018 In color Designer Series Paper Stacks.  That panel was then glued to a little larger panel of Emerald Envy card stock before popping it onto the Mint Macaron card stock base with dimensionals.  Using the small bow from the Pretty Pines Thinlets Dies, I die cut three bows in Cherry Cobbler.  Those three are glued together with tiny dots of liquid glue.

 I cut a length of Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine and pulled one end through the Holly Christmas Trinket, wrapped it around the loops of the bow, tied a knot and trimmed off the ends.  A couple of glue dots were added to the back to secure it to the front of the sentiment panel, then the panel added to the front of the card with dimensionals. 

 

Wonderful Year

 

 

The inside Whisper White panel is stamped with another of the sentiments from Wonderful Year in Cherry Cobbler and Emerald Envy inks.  I used another panel of the Emerald Envy In Colors DSP as a frame for the sentiment panel, and again glued them with liquid glue.  

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