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.

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!

Stampin Up! Watercolor Christmas Wishes

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

Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wishes-Cardiology by Jari

I started with a panel of the wonderful Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper and adhered it to my Whisper White Thick card stock base.  Next, I matted another panel of the same DSP with a little larger panel of regular Whisper White card stock and adhered them both to the card front.  Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wishes-Cardiology by Jari

I chose the largest sentiment from Watercolor Christmas and stamped it in Real Red, then cut it out with one of the largest ovals from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  The sentiment oval was matted to a little larger Garden Green scalloped oval, also cut from the Layering Ovals Framelits.  The cute little Christmas tree is a stamp from the Smitten Mittens stamp set and die cut from the Many Mittens Framelits Dies.  Don’t you love it?  I added a length of Quilted Christmas 1/4″ Ribbon with some Tear & Tape Adhesive and then popped the sentiment oval on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the front was completed!

Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wishes-Cardiology by Jari

More of the Christmas trees were added to the inside, as well as another sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Christmas stamp set.  Have you checked out the Watercolor Christmas Project Kit on page 34 of the Holiday Catalog?  There are the makings for 20 Christmas cards, and add this stamp set and you are ready to check off your Christmas card to do list!

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.

Stampin’ Up! Labels to Love Christmas Card

I used the Labels to Love stamp set to create a Christmas card to share with you today.  With this stamp set, you could create a Labels to Love Christmas, Halloween,Thanksgiving, or Valentine project!  And there is a punch to help you with cutting out the labels.  The Everyday Labels Punch can be bundled with the Merry Little Labels stamp set and can also be used with the Labels to Love stamps, too!

Stampin' Up! Labels to Love Christmas-Cardiology by Jari

 

I’m playing along with the “Just Add D” challenge over at Just Add Ink this week.  My “D” element is a doily.  

Just Add Ink #376

 

I started by adhering panels from Quilted Christmas DSP to a panel of Whisper White, then adhered a length of 3/8″ Silver Metallic Edge Thread with Tear & Tape adhesive to cover the meeting point.  A panel of Silver Foil was adhered to the Real Red card base with liquid glue, then the previous panel was popped onto the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! Labels to Love Christmas-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I adhered a Metallic Foil Doily white side up to the card front over the previously added ribbon with liquid glue. The label image was inked in VersaMark ink onto Real Red, White Emboss Powder sprinkled on it and then heat embossed until smooth and shiny.  I used the Everyday Labels Punch to cut it out.  then, I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the sentiment and repeated the embossing procedure. 

 

Stampin' Up! Labels to Love Christmas-Cardiology by Jari

A length of Mini Silver Sequin Trim was wound around and secured to the top of the doily with glue dots, and then the label popped on top with dimensionals.  A small bow was created with more of the Silver Metallic ribbon and added to the front with glue dots.  Finally, one star Metallic Enamel Shape was added to the top of one tree.

 

Stampin' Up! Labels to Love Christmas-Cardiology by Jari

For the inside sentiment, I inked up one more of the stamps from Labels to Love in Real Red and Garden Green, then stamped it onto a Whisper White panel edged with more of the Quilted Christmas DSP.  

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