Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

The Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle from the 2017 Annual Catalog has really been a favorite of mine.  So, I pulled it out again for the card I am sharing with you today.

And here is the color challenge:

Happy Inkin thursday color challenge-Happy Birthday Gorgeous bundle

I have to be honest with you, I really struggled with these colors this week, even though Stampin’ Up! has provided Designer Series Paper to match our challenge!  I tend to go for more bold colors in my projects!  

I started by adhering a panel of Vellum to the Soft Sky Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper with a little liquid glue in the center of the panel.  I knew it would be covered by my other elements and the glue would not show!  Then I adhered that panel to a panel of Soft Sky card stock with liquid glue.

Next, I punched a strip of Blushing Bride and one of the Fabulous Foil DSP with my Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and adhered them in the center with a little liquid glue.  Once again, I knew the glue would not show.  I wrapped a length of Gold 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon around the Soft Sky panel and through the tag and tied a bow, securing it to the back with a little tape and popped it onto my Very Vanilla Thick card stock base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The stamping came next, first with the sentiment from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle in VersaMark ink, embossed with Gold Emboss Powder and heat embossed.  The sentiment was die cut with an oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and matted to a little larger Gold Foil scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  The flower images from Happy Birthday Gorgeous were stamped in Blushing Bride and Soft Sky and the leaves in Lemon Lime Twist.  All were fussy cut with my Paper Snips, then added with liquid glue and dimensionals.  A banner was created using a Blushing Bride pattern from the Bundle of Love DSP and my Banner Triple Punch.  The banner was adhered to the sentiment oval and then popped onto the front of the card with dimensionals.  Three enamel shapes finished off the front.

I wanted you to see the inside closely, so I turned it sideways!  I used the Happy Birthday Thinlets, which are part of the Happy Birthday Bundle, to die cut a Blushing Bride and Gold Foil sentiment.  I offset them slightly so that the Blushing Bride showed a little and glued them carefully with small dots of liquid glue.  I waited just a little and adhered them so that the glue would not smash and seep out because it dries shiny and doesn’t look nice on your finished project!  More of my fussy cut flowers and a strip of the same DSP used in my banner were added to the Very Vanilla inside panel before gluing it to my card base.  Enjoy!

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

Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous

Yea, the weekend is here! Hope you have some fun things planned.  I used the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create my card for today.  

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous-Cardiology by Jari

The inspiration for my card sketch is from Fab Friday #117

FabFri117

 

I started by adhering a panel from the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper to a panel of Soft Sky, then popped it onto the Whisper White Thick card stock front with Stampin’  Dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I stamped several flower images from Happy Birthday Gorgeous in Berry Burst ink onto Whisper White.  The leaves were stamped in Lemon Lime Twist, then I used my Paper Snips to cut all of the leaves and flowers out.  I cut the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits in Whisper White and stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment in Berry Burst ink.  Then, I cut a little larger scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies in Soft Sky and matted my sentiment oval.

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I inked up the banner image from Happy Birthday Gorgeous in VersaMark ink, sprinkled on White Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I inked up you look gorgeous, again with VersaMark, and stamped in the center of the small banner, added White Emboss Powder and heated it once more.  It was then fussy cut with my Paper Snips  The flowers, leaves and banner were all arranged on the oval and adhered with liquid glue and some Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut a small length of the Silver Mini Sequin Trim, adhered it to the card front with some glue dots, then popped the sentiment panel on with dimensionals.  The final touch was to add three Rhinestone Basic Jewels for a little bling.

A strip of the Naturally Eclectic DSP was adhered to a panel of Whisper White and the flowers were added with some liquid glue before I adhered the whole panel to the base with more liquid glue.  Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Inkin’ Thursday, everyone!  I am sharing a card created with one of the new stamps sets called Happy Birthday Gorgeous, from the 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog that goes live today!  Can you believe it is June 1st?  I know there are a lot of happy people out there who have been waiting (not so patiently, I bet) to place an order.  So glad you joined us, we are all excited, too!  

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous-Cardiology by Jari

 

Our challenge this week was to use the following colors:  

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 

The inspiration for my sketch is from Hand Stamped Sentiments HSS #265

Hand Stamped Sentiments #265

My card base is Old Olive with a panel of Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper adhered to the left side with some liquid glue.  Aren’t you glad you can order this paper today?  Ordering begins after 12:00 Mountain Time.  Yay!

I stamped a panel of Whisper White card stock with the splatter stamp from Touches of Texture in Old Olive ink.  I wanted it to be a subtle color, so I stamped off twice on scrap paper.  

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I stamped the flower pods and stems in Rich Razzleberry, then the leaves in Old Olive. The flowers in Happy Birthday Gorgeous are 2-step stamps, so I stamped first in Rich Razzleberry.  The second stamping was in Pool Party that had been stamped off twice.  I fussy cut all of the flower heads and set them aside.  Then, I inked up the sentiment in Rich Razzleberry and stamped it on the bottom of my art panel.  The art panel was framed with a panel of Old Olive card stock 

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous-Cardiology by Jari

The small flowers were adhered to the art panel with some liquid glue, and then the larger ones added with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Several  Pearls were added for a little bling, and the whole art panel popped onto the front with Dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous-Cardiology by Jari

My original plan was to add the Happy Birthday sentiment to the front of the card, but I wasn’t happy with that, so I decided to add it and some of the flowers to the inside.  

A complete list of supplies as well as card stock cuts for my Happy Birthday Gorgeous birthday card will be at the end of the post.

Stampin’ Up! Suite Sentiments for Father’s Day

Amy's Inkin' Krew Team Blog Hop

Welcome to our Masculine Themed Blog Hop featuring Amy’s Inkin’ Krew!  I’m sharing a Father’s Day Card using the Stampin’ Up! Suite Sentiments stamp set (retiring).

Suite Sentiments for Father's Day-Cardiology by Jari

 

 

My card base is Basic Black.  I added a panel of Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate to another panel of Basic Black with very tiny spots of Liquid Glue positioned in the center of the polka dots.  Then added that panel to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Next, I created a banner using some Pop of Pink DSP (retiring) and the retiring Banners Framelits Dies.  The banner was framed on the top and bottom with some Gold Foil DSP, then adhered to the front with liquid glue.  

Suite Sentiments for Father's Day-Cardiology by Jari

 

My Suite Sentiments sentiment was stamped with Versa Mark ink, sprinkled with Gold Emboss Powder and heat embossed on a panel of Whisper White.  I used a Stitched Shapes Framelit Square to cut it out, then framed it with a slightly larger Layering Square Framelit in Gold Foil DSP.

 

Suite Sentiments for Father's Day-Cardiology by Jari

A strand of Gold Metallic Thread was wound around the back of the sentiment panel and secured with glue dots, then the panel was popped onto the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

 

Suite Sentiments for Father['s Day-Cardiology by Jari

I chose my inside sentiment from 2 different stamp sets. The smaller words are from Thoughtful Banners, and the larger word is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous (available June 1st).  All were stamped in Versa Mark, sprinkled with Gold Emboss Powder and heat embossed.  I added one Metallic Enamel Shape heart, and then a strip of the same Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate to the bottom.  

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