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! Painted Autumn Harvest

Well, today is the day you have all been waiting for, the 2017 Holiday Catalog goes live!!  I’m sharing the long anticipated Painted  Autumn Designer series paper, paired with the oh so awesome Painted Harvest stamp set bundle. You cannot go wrong with this suite of items for your fall  projects.  Don’t wait too long to order, I am sure it will be a favorite of many!

Stampin' Up! Painted Autumn-Cardiology by Jari

This Painted Autumn DSP is loaded with so many rich fall colors, and the paper, well, it speaks for itself.   I let it make my card quick and easy for today.

A panel of Very Vanilla was adhered to Early Expresso with liquid glue.   Next, a thin strip of Early Expresso was added to the right side of the Painted Autumn DSP and both adhered to the Very Vanilla panel.  A length of Linen Thread was wrapped around the large panel three times and secured to the back with tape.  

Stampin' Up! Painted Autumn-Cardiology by Jari

The sentiment was stamped in Versa Mark ink, sprinkled with Copper Emboss powder and heat embossed until smooth and shiny.  The Very Vanilla Stitched Shape oval was die cut and framed with a scalloped Early Expresso oval and then a little larger Crushed Curry oval then popped onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! Painted Autumn-Cardiology by Jari

Two leaf images were stamped in Garden Green (the leaf outline stamp) and Lemon Lime Twist (the solid leaf stamp), and punched with the Leaf Punch.  One of the sunflowers from the Painted Autumn DSP was fussy cut with my Paper Snips.  I added the leaves with liquid glue and the sunflower with dimensionals.  A fun bow was created with more Linen Thread and the center of the bow pulled together with some of the  1/4″ Copper Trim.  Notice I pulled the ends of the Copper Trim apart to add some interest.  

If you look closely, you’ll see the sunflower I stamped peeking out from the inside Very Vanilla panel.  The rest of the panel was left blank for writing.

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

Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Note Cards and Mini Pizza Box

It’s Monday, and I hope you’re all set to safely watch the total eclipse!  I think we are having lots of rain and clouds, so I will probably tune in via the television!  For my card today, I used the Painted Harvest stamp set (available September 1st)and created five 3″ x 3″ note cards that fit beautifully into the new Mini Pizza Boxes (available on September 1st).

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest-Cardiology by Jari

 

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest-Cardiology by Jari

Do you see that cute little 3″ x 3″ Envelope?  Yes, it is also available September 1st when the 2017 Holiday Catalog goes live!!

Each card base was cut from Whisper White Thick card stock.  For the top three cards, I single matted my Whisper White art piece with a panel that was 1/8″ larger for each.  For the bottom two cards, I double matted them.  It adds a little variety plus, I accidentally cut one of my art panels too small and had already stamped it!  There is a method to my madness-at least sometimes 🙂

Painted Harvest is a two step stamp set, and for each sunflower, I stamped the largest image first in Crushed Curry ink. Then, I stamped the second image with Peekaboo Peach for two of the cards, and Tangerine Tango for the other three. All of the leaves were stamped in Lemon Lime Twist.  I used a mask to cover each sunflower when I stamped them.  All of the sentiments were stamped using the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest-Cardiology by Jari

These Mini Pizza Boxes (available Sept. 1st) are really great because they are food safe.  I can just imagine all of the wonderful sweet treats they could be filled with for the holidays!  Don’t you just love the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (available Sept. !st)I used on the top of the box?  Get your wish lists ready the big day is coming soon.  

The Mini Pizza Boxes and 3″ x 3″ Whisper White Envelopes can be found on page 44 of the 2017 Holiday Catalog.  

 

Card stock cuts and supplies needed to create these note cards will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Painted Harvest Sneak Peek!

Today, I’m sharing a sneak peek of the new Painted Harvest stamp set from the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog, available on September 1st.  I know you are going to love it as much as I do!  

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest-Cardiology by Jari

The Painted Harvest stamp set(available September 1st)  is photopolymer and the images are created for two step stamping.  I started by inking up the sunflower images in Crushed Curry and Peekaboo Peach.  The larger, more undefined flower was stamped first in Crushed Curry, then the smaller stamp in Peekaboo Peach, with the center being stamped in Early Espresso.  I fussy cut the first sunflower with my Paper Snips, and since I was happy with the colors, I stamped several sunflowers on a panel of Whisper White.  Then, I went back and stamped the dotted images in Early Expresso using second generation stamping.  (Where you stamp off onto scrap paper first, then stamp onto your art panel)

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest-Cardiology by Jari

The art panel was then adhered to a panel of Copper Foil with Liquid Glue.  

I used my banner triple punch to notch one end of my Early Expresso banner, then inked it up with my sentiment in VersaMark ink.  I sprinkled on Copper Emboss powder, shook off the excess and heat embossed it until shiny.  For the leaves, I inked the  solid image in Garden Green, stamped them off once, then stamped them onto a panel of Whisper White.  The second leaf image was inked in Lemon Lime Twist and stamped full strength over the first stamping.  They were then fussy cut with my Paper Snips.  Three accent sprigs were die cut in Copper Foil from the Bouquet Bunch Framelits Dies and set aside.  

Stampin' Up! Painted Harves-Cardiology by Jari

 

The banner was adhered to the art panel with liquid glue, then I dry fit the sunflower, leaves and sprigs.  When I was happy with their placement, I wound a length of Linen Thread around the back of the sunflower and secured it with Glue Dots.  Then, I added the sunflower, leaves and sprigs with Stampin’ Dimensionals, Glue Dots and Liquid Glue.  Finally, the art panel was complete, and I adhered it to the Early Expresso/Peekaboo Peach base with dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest-Cardiology by Jari

I chose a different sentiment from Painted Harvest (available September 1st) to stamp on the inside of my card.  It was also heat embossed with Copper Emboss Powder.  Another sunflower image with leaves was stamped in the corner using the same two step method and colors as instructed for the card front.  

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

My card sketch was inspired by the sketch that Christy created for this months sketch challenge at Craft Project Central.

I hope you’ll try this one out and post it on Craft Project Central, too!
