Stampin’ Up! Wood Words for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  We have a new look!  For this week’s sketch challenge, I created a card with the upcoming Wood Words Bundle from Stampin’ Up!

Here is our sketch:

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Stampin' Up! Wood Words Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

I paired the Wood Words Bundle with some of the new Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack. This paper is the bomb!  Lots of different patterns of wood look 6″ x 6″ paper.  And, no more messy tearing, the glue is gone, and these sheets are already separated. Yippee!  

First, I adhered a panel of the retiring Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper (the checked panel) to a panel of Early Expresso card stock.  Then, I adhered a panel of the Wood Textures DSP to the bottom half.  A length of Burlap Ribbon was then adhered to the center with some Tear & Tape Adhesive after I notched one end.  

Stampin' Up! Wood Words Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I stamped the floral image from the Wood Words stamp set in Tip Top Taupe (retired) ink onto a panel of Whisper White a couple of times to create my own DSP for the square.  It was framed with a larger scalloped square from the Layering Squares Framelits.  I used 2 of the smaller circles from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies for the center of the squares.  The rooster was stamped in Real Red onto Whisper White and die cut using the coordinating die from the bundle.

The circle cuts were adhered to the squares with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and then the square attached to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from Wood Words in Early Expresso ink onto Whisper White card stock and cut it with a die from the Popcorn Box Thinlets.  A second banner was also cut from a scrap of the Wood Textures DSP, cut in half and adhered to the sentiment with some Liquid Glue, then popped onto the front with more Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally the card front was adhered to the Whisper White card stock base with more Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Wood Words Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

No sentiment added to the inside, just one more rooster in Real Red ink and a strip left over from the front added to the bottom of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered it to a panel of Early Expresso card stock, then added the whole panel to the Whisper White base.  

A complete list of stamping supplies needed to complete this card as well as card stock cuts in inches will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Easter Basket for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!  I created an Easter basket from the Stampin’ Up! Basket Bunch Bundle for our Hop today.  

 

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Easter Basket by Cardiology by Jari

 

 

We had a sketch to work with this week.

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop Sketch Challenge

I started by layering  panels of Succulent Garden and Mint Macaron In-Color DSP (both retiring!) onto a panel of Sweet Sugarplum card stock.  Next, I die cut some grass from the Basket Builder Framelits Dies in Mint Macaron and adhered it to the front with liquid glue.  I die cut a Stitched Shapes square from more of the Succulent Garden DSP and gave it a scalloped border with some more Sweet Sugarplum card stock.  

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Easter Basket by Cardiology by Jari

My Easter basket was stamped in Soft Suede onto Crumb Cake card stock and die cut out.  Next came the eggs, cut out with the Basket Builder Framelits from Mint Macaron (retiring!), So Saffron and Sweet Sugarplum card stock.  Each one has 2 layers, one with cut outs and one solid.  I brushed some Wink of Stella over them to give them a little pizzaz! Next, came the bunny,stamped in Memento Tuxedo black and colored in with some Pink Pirouette and Sweet Sugarplum markers.  The banner was stamped in Versa Mark, sprinkled with White Emboss Powder and heat embossed.  

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Easter Basket by Cardiology by Jari  I didn’t use all of the eggs for the Easter Basket, but save a few for the inside.  My sentiment  is from the March Paper Pumpkin kit and stamped in Sweet Sugarplum ink.  More of the striped DSP was added to the inside bottom with snail. 

A list of stamping supplies needed to create this card as well as card stock cuts in inches are at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Blooms for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 

We’re back with another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop for you today.  I used Birthday Blooms, from Stampin’ Up!, to create my card to share with you.  

Stampin' Up! Birthday Blooms by Cardiology by Jari

 

We have a color challenge this week, and Mint Macaron has truly been a wonderful color the last two years!  Make sure you order anything from the 2015-2017 In-Color Collection soon because they retire June 1st.   Those items will vanish fast!  

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 

I’m also playing along with the Coming Up Flowers Challenge #93 At Stamp Ink Paper this week.  

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge 93

I started with a panel of Watercolor Paper and the Birthday Blooms stamp set.  The large flower image was stamped in Versa Mark ink, and heat embossed using White Emboss Powder.  Then, I began to color in the flowers with my Watercolor Pen and Calypso Coral ink.  Once it was dry, I came back in and water colored Mint Macaron on all of the leaf images.  Finally, I colored in the center of the bloom with more water coloring in Daffodil Delight.  The Mint Macaron dotted images are also from Birthday Blooms, and were added last.  
Stampin' Up! Birthday Blooms by Cardiology by Jari

I used the sentiment from Jar of Love, and the Banners Framelits Dies for my banner cut outs. The Calypso Coral Thick Baker’s Twine is really White Baker’s Twine that I dyed using vinegar and my Calypso Coral re-inker.  It was my first time trying this technique.  Luckily, I realized in enough time that I was out of the Calypso Coral twine, and dyed some ahead of when I needed it, so it had time to dry!  I’m happy with the results, and will try this again with other colors.  

Stampin' Up! Birthday Blooms by Cardiology by Jari

For the inside, I chose a sentiment from Floral Phrases and stamped it in Mint Macaron.  My small flower is from Birthday Blooms and was stamped in Calypso Coral.

A complete list of Stampin’ Up! supplies needed to complete this project, as well as card stock cuts in inches will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Dragonflies for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I’m sharing some Dragonflies on my card today for our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  And here is our sketch:

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop Sketch Challenge March 30
Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Dreams Dragonflies by Cardiology by Jari

Our sketch this week gives us a starting point and guidelines for each sketch, so I really try to work with it as much as possible.  If you notice in the sketch it has 2 panels on the front, with one looking like a different color than the other.  I chose to use the same paper, but cut it so that it looks a little like it is two different panels of DSP.  I used one of the sheets from Falling In Love DSP and cut it so that the part of the paper with less design is on the top portion and the part with more design was on the bottom!  They were adhered to a panel of Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper.  Then, a length of Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon was adhered where the two panels met.  

Stampin' Up D!ragonfly Dreams Dragonflies by Cardiology by Jari

I recently saw a card on Pinterest with dragonflies created using Vellum card stock, so I decided to try it, too.  You can see the card HERE.  The stamper used Watercolor Pencils, and since I knew they were not orderable from Stampin’ Up! right now, I decided to try using my Blender pen and inks on the Vellum.  I cut a rectangle of the Vellum and began coloring with Blushing Bride, Sahara Sand and Sweet Sugarplum inks, blending the colors as I went. Once it was dry, I just die cut it with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlets Die.  

Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Dreams Dragonflies by Cardiology by Jari

My sentiment, from Dragonfly Dreams, was stamped in Sahara Sand on Very Vanilla, and die cut with an oval Stitched Shapes Framelit Die. Then, I adhered the sentiment oval to a Blushing Bride scalloped oval and attached a Lace Doily to the back side with glue. The dragonflies were attached with glue dots just under the heads.  I cut a length of Silver Metallic Thread and attached it to the back of the sentiment ovals with some Glue Dots, then popped that panel onto the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The Falling In Love Embellishment added the finishing touch to the front. 

Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Dreams Dragonflies by Cardiology by Jari

I pulled out the Happy Mother’s Day sentiment from the Oh So Succulent stamp set and stamped it in Sahara Sand ink. Then, I added a strip of the DSP left over from the front for the bottom of the panel.

Stampin’ Up! Basket Bunch for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

I used the Stampin’ Up! Basket Bunch Bundle to create a Happy Spring card to share with you today!

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Happy Spring by Cardiology by Jari

 

This week, we have a color challenge with Crushed Curry, Emerald Envy and Crumb Cake.  

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop Color Challenge

I started with a panel of Festive Birthday DSP that I adhered to a panel of Whisper White.  Then, I cut out two Stitched Shapes Squares, one in Crushed Curry and one in the same Festive Birthday DSP.  I dry fit them onto a panel of Whisper White so that I would know how much room I had for the rest of the pieces I had planned to add.

Next, I stamped the grass image from Basket Bunch in Emerald Envy onto a panel of Whisper White.  Happy Spring was then stamped in the upper right hand corner, also in Emerald Envy.  I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line the words up because they are single stamps from the Crazy About You stamp set.

 

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Happy Spring Card by Cardiology by Jari

 

My flowers, leaves, and bunnies were stamped next.  Then, I pulled out the Basket Builder Framelits Dies and cut them, the tall grass, and a basket out.  My Whisper White art panel was then adhered to a panel of Emerald Envy. I added the squares with liquid glue and adhered the tall grass to them with more glue.  Two of the flowers were colored a little with a blender pen and some Crushed Curry ink. The basket and white bunny were attached with Dimensionals, while the Crumb Cake bunnies were adhered with liquid glue. 

 

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Happy Spring by Cardiology by Jari

 

One of the Lace Doilies was adhered to the Festive Birthday DSP panel with liquid glue, then the art panel popped on with Dimensionals.  A small bow was attached to the basket handle with a glue dot, and some Enamel Shapes added to the flower centers.  The inside has a plain Whisper White panel with a little strip of the matching DSP attached to the bottom.  And there you have it, a Happy Spring card. I hope you are experiencing a little spring like weather wherever you are!

Stampin’ Up! Basket of Succulents for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 

I used the Oh So Succulent Bundle from Stampin’ Up! to create my Basket of Succulents card to share with you today.

Stampin' Up! Oh So Succulent Basket Cardiology by Jari

 

 

Here is the sketch for the week:

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 

I started by adhering two different patterns of the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper to a panel of Sweet Sugarplum Glimmer Paper (only available during Sale-A-Bration!).  Next, I wrapped a length of Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon around both panels adhering it with Tear & Tape Adhesive.  

Stampin' Up! Oh So Succulent Basket for Mother's Day by Cardiology by Jari

 

 

Then, I sponged a Lace Doily with some Sweet Sugarplum ink, cut it in half and adhered it to the left center.  I pulled out my Window Box Thinlets and created the basket bottom in Tip Top Taupe card stock with the scalloped die.  To add some interest to the basket, I also die cut the other flat die which created the strips used to make the ridges on the basket.  

Stampin' Up! Oh So Succulent Basket by Cardiology by Jari

 

 

All of the succulents in the basket were stamped twice because this is a two-step stamp set.  The first stamping was full strength, which created the outline of the succulent.  The second layer was stamped off once onto scrap paper before actually stamping onto my outlined succulent.  I used combinations of Old Olive, Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum and Calypso Coral inks.  The Happy Mother’s Day sentiment was stamped in Versa Mark and sprinkled with White Emboss Powder and heat embossed.  I used the small banner die from the Popcorn Box Thinlets to cut it out.  

 

Stampin' Up! Oh So Succulent Basket

I used part of the sentiment from Remarkable You for the inside of my card.  (The word And at the beginning of the stamp was left off.)  A few more succulents were added to the bottom along with another strip of the Succulent Garden DSP.  

All of the products used to create this card as well as the card stock cuts in inches will be at the end of the post.

Stampin’ Up! Tasty Trucks for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I used Tasty Trucks,  from the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration flyer, for my share for our blog hop today.  This food truck is so cute and I love its versatility!  And, it was FREE!  

 

Trucks

 

 Here is our color challenge:

Happy Inkin' Thursday color challenge

These colors are really fun, and just happen to be included in the Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series paper.  So that part was pretty easy.  I decided to use the Tasty Trucks stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration flyer because I think it is so cute.  I started by stamping the truck in Basic Black Archival ink onto a panel of Whisper White card stock.  Then, I pulled out my Crumb Cake, Watermelon Wonder and Pool Party ink pads and a Blender Pen.  I pressed down on the lids quite a bit before opening so that some of the ink would transfer to the top cover.  Then, I used this ink to “color” in the truck with my blender pen.

TrucksNext, I die cut the truck image with one of the largest circles in the Layering Circles Framelits collection.  The Watermelon Wonder frame was die cut with the largest Scalloped Circle Framelits die and attached with liquid glue.  I stamped another awning from the truck image and two sets of flags.  Once they were colored with my blender pen and ink, I fussy cut them out.  The awning was attached with small pieces of Dimensionals, and the Pool Party flags added with a little dab of liquid glue.  The popsicles were cut out of the Tasty Treats DSP and added with Dimensionals.  

Trucks

I noticed the wheels needed some hubcaps, so I added two Pool Party Enamel Shapes to finish off the truck.  The sentiment was stamped in Basic Black Archival ink and die cut with the smallest banner in the Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies.  A second banner was cut in Pool Party, cut in half and attached to either end of the Whisper White one  with liquid glue.  The card base is Watermelon Wonder with panels of Pool Party and Tasty Treats Specialty DSP layered and attached with Dimensionals.  A strip of Watermelon Wonder striped card stock from Tasty Treats and two banners from another pattern in the Tasty Treats DSP were added with liquid glue and the art panel and sentiment panel popped on with Dimensionals.  

Trucks

For the inside, I added a strip of the Watermelon Wonder stripe onto a panel of Whisper White and left room for a handwritten note.  

A complete list of supplies and card stock cuts in inches for my Tasty Trucks card will be at the end of my post.

Window Shopping for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

 

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 

I used the Stampin’ Up! Window Shopping Bundle to create a clean and simple card for our blog hop today! 

 

Window

 

And here is our sketch for the week:

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop sketch

I started with a panel of Whisper White card stock and die cut the large die from the Window Box Thinlets a little below the center.  Then, I cut a panel of Blooms & Bliss DSP and attached it behind the cut out area with a little liquid glue.

Window

 

A length of Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon was adhered to the right side of the art panel by adding a little Tear & Tape Adhesive to the front and back.  Then, I adhered the panel to a little larger panel of Island Indigo card stock so that only the right side peeked out a little.  My next step was to adhere the whole thing to the Whisper White card stock base with Dimensionals.

 

Window

I stamped Thinking of You,  found in the Window Shopping stamp set, with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed it with White Emboss Powder.  I used my banner die from the Gift Card Envelope and Trims Thinlets to cut it out, then added some loops of Silver Metallic Thread to the end with a couple of Glue Dots.  One of the Falling In Love Embellishments was also adhered with Glue Dots and all that was left of the front was to pop the banner on with Dimensionals.  

The inside has a Whisper White panel with a small strip of the Blooms & Bliss DSP used under the front cut out adhered to the bottom to leave room for a longer note.

And, there you have it, a CAS card for you today!  A complete list of supplies and card stock cuts in inches is located at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Best Birds for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday

It’s Thursday again!  Wow, the weeks roll around quickly, don’t they?  I used the Stampin’ Up! Best Birds Bundle for my share today.  This set is found in the Annual Catalog, but it is new to me.  I have had it for a few months, but have just not gotten around to using it.  Crazy, right?  Besides saving 10% when you order the Best Birds and Birds & Blooms Thinlets Dies, the stamps are photopolymer, which are my favorite style of stamps to work with!

Here is our color challenge this week:

Best Birds Color challenge

And, my card:

Best Birds

 

The branches from Best Birds, were stamped in Early Expresso ink on a panel of Shimmery White card stock.  Next, I stamped the bird image on another panel of Shimmery White and began to color it with a blender pen and Peekaboo Peach, then some Bermuda Bay.  When I was finished coloring, I used the Birds & Blooms Thinlets Dies to cut out the branches and the bird.  I stamped the single flower and the flower and blossom images in Early Expresso onto a panel of Peekaboo Peach and die cut them, also.

 

Best Birds

The background stamp is also from Best Birds, and was stamped in Early Expresso on Shimmery White card stock. I actually stamped it off two times before stamping on the art panel because I did not want it to overpower the scene. The top two branches were adhered to the art panel with liquid glue and the bird and his branch were popped on with dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment onto a panel of Peekaboo Peach in Early Expresso and die cut it with one of the Popcorn Box Thinlets Dies.  One extra banner was cut with Early Expresso card stock to add behind the sentiment banner.  

Best Birds

I stamped the other bird image from Best Birds first in Early Expresso ink, then filled in as before quickly blending some Peekaboo Peach and Bermuda Bay inks over his body.  

A complete list of supplies as well as card stock cuts for this card may be found at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Sunshine Wishes Valentine for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday

Happy Inkin’ Thursday, we are back with a new name, but, with the same players!  Today, I am sharing a card using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets Dies, some help from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets, the Sweet & Sassy Framelits and the Sealed With Love Bundle.  

Our color challenge this week is Real Red, Whisper White and Gold… 

 

Sunshine Wishes for Happy Inkin' thursday

….so, I made a Valentine:

 

Sunshine Wishes

My card front has no stamping, but with the help of the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets, I die cut the love sentiment in Gold Glimmer Paper. In fact, I cut out two just to give it a little more pop.  This paper is really thick, so you need to run it through the big shot several times for the die to cut it all out.  I die cut the heart from the Love Notes Framelits Dies in Real Red. I cut some of the letter “o” off before attaching the heart to the rest of the word with liquid glue. 

 

Sunshine Wishes

 

The large Whisper White heart was die cut with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies and placed in the Happy Heart TIEF, then dry embossed.  Next, I die cut the arrow and “open” heart using my Love Notes Framelits Dies and more Gold Glimmer Paper.  I pulled out the die from my Mini Treat Bag Thinlets that creates a line of hearts for the banner.  Again, I had to run it through the Big Shot several times because that Glimmer Paper is so thick.  The small hearts were popped out so that I could use them on the front.  One end of the banner was notched using my Banner Triple Punch.

 

Sunshine Wishes

I pulled out a piece of my Pop of Pink DSP for the other banner and also used the Banner Triple Punch to notch one end.  To add just a little more interest, I cut a length of Gold Metallic Thread and wound it around, attaching it with dimensionals before popping the large heart on the front, also with dimensionals.  

 

sunshine Wishes

For my inside sentiment, I went back to my Sealed With Love stamp set, stamping two of the images in Real Red.   

A complete list of supplies for my Sunshine Wishes Valentine and card stock cuts in inches are at the end of my post.  


Now, on to the rest of the hop.  Kristi is next in line, so make sure to check out her creation for today!

Join my team during Sale-A-Bration!  This is the best time of the year to join Stampin’ Up!  Look at the benefits:

Joining Stampin’ Up! is one of the best things I have ever done.  I love the products and Demonstrator Support is excellent.  When I joined two years ago during Sale-A-Bration, I loved the fact that I got extra stamp sets and got $125 dollars worth of product for $99, and there was free shipping.  That is always a draw for me-I love free shipping!  Also, there was no pressure to sell anything, plus I got a discount on all of my purchases.  Yippee!! I have a super up-line, Amy Koenders, who has encouraged me since day one!  

I would love to add you to my team and you would then become part of our larger team, Amy’s Inkin’ Krew.  I would be happy to answer any questions you might have and you can learn more about joining HERE.
