Stampin’ Up! Oh So Succulent for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Amy's Inkin' Krew Team Blog Hop

This month, we have a feminine themed blog hop for you!  I have created a Mother’s Day Card from the Stampin’ Up! Oh So Succulent Bundle to share with you today.  

 

Stampin' Up! Oh So Succulent Cardiology by Jari

My large succulent from the Succulent Framelits Dies, was cut in Mint Macaron with Sweet Sugarplum ink sponged on the leaf tips and lightly on the centers.  Next, I stamped several of the succulent images from Oh So Succulent in Sweet Sugarplum and Mint Macaron inks, then die cut them out.

I stamped the Oh So Succulent Happy Mother’s Day sentiment in Sweet Sugarplum onto a Whisper White Stitched Shapes oval.  A scalloped oval in Sweet Sugarplum was then adhered to the sentiment oval.

A panel of Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper was adhered to a little larger panel of Mint Macaron, then framed with another panel from the Succulent Garden DSP.. Then, I popped it onto the Mint Macaron card base with dimensionals.  A Lace Doily was adhered to the side so that it would peek out when I added the succulents and sentiment panel.  I popped the sentiment ovals on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and began to add all of the succulents with touches of glue and dimensionals.  Three small Pearls were added near the sentiment.

One more succulent from Oh So Succulent was stamped in Sweet Sugarplum and Mint Macaron on the inside, and the sentiment is from the Suite Sentiments stamp set.  

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


 

And now, head on over to see what Amy has created for us today!

Stampin’ Up! Cool Treats & Suite Sentiments

Today, I have paired the Stampin’ Up! Cool Treats Bundle with the Suite Sentiments stamp set, to create my card to share with you. These stamp sets are featured in the 2017 Occasions Catalog, and I’m loving them both.  I think they paired nicely, don’t you?

Stampin' Up! Cool Treats & Suite Sentiments Cardiology by Jari

 

I also think this Designer Series Paper, Tasty Treats, is so fun to work with.  The card base is Watermelon Wonder (remember, this color is retiring in June!) .  First, I cut a panel of the striped Tasty Treats DSP, and adhered it to a panel of Crumb Cake.  I cut the other Tasty Treats design on a diagonal and adhered it also to the Crumb Cake layer.  A length of Watermelon Wonder 5/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon (also retiring in June!) was then cut and adhered using Tear & Tape Adhesive.  This whole panel was then popped onto the Watermelon Wonder card stock base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

 

Stampin' Up! Cool Treats & Suite Sentiments Cardiology by Jari

Next, I stamped the sprinkles stamp from Cool Treats, in Crumb Cake ink, all over a Whisper White Stitched Shape Oval, and backed it with a Watermelon Wonder scalloped oval.  The Crumb Cake ice cream cone was die cut using 2 of the dies from the Frozen Treats Framelits.  I stamped the ice cream in Watermelon Wonder, stamping off onto a scrap piece of paper first.   Then, I stamped the sentiment from Suite Sentiments, full strength on top.  I had to fussy cut the ice cream because of the sentiment’s size.  Just Like You, also from Suite Sentiments, was stamped in Watermelon Wonder ink and I used one of the Tags & Labels Framelits Dies to cut it and its frame out.  The cherry was stamped and die cut, then glued on.  I cut a Lace Doily in half and adhered it to the ovals, then popped the art panel and the sentiment panel onto the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the inside sentiment, I chose a stamp from Cool Treats and decided to add a chocolate topped popsicle to the bottom left corner.  So, how do you think Cool Treats & Suite Sentiments worked on this card?  

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

Stampin’ Up! Seaside Shore Ahoy There

I used the Stampin’ Up! Seaside Shore and Suite Sentiments stamp sets to create my card to share with you today.

.  

Stampin' Up! Seaside Shore Cardiology by Jari

 

I was inspired by the sketch over at Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #89

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #89

 

I started with a panel from By The Shore DSP and dry embossed it with the Seaside Textured Impresions Folder. It was then adhered to a panel of Soft Sky card stock.  

 

Stampin' Up! Seaside Shore by Cardiology by Jari

 

Next, I added the length of Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon with Tear & Tape Adhesive, wrapping it around my layered panel.  Then the next pattern from By The Shore was lined up and adhered to the right of the ribbon.  On a panel of Very Vanilla, I stamped the sea grass image from Seaside Shore in Soft Sky ink.  The anchor was then stamped in Dapper Denim on top of the grass. My next step was to die cut the panel with one of my Stitched Shapes circle dies. Two more scalloped circles were cut with my Layering Circles Framelits dies to adhere to my anchor panel.

 Ahoy There, also from Seaside Shore, was stamped in Calypso Coral ink onto a panel of Very Vanilla and snipped out with my Paper Snips.  It was attached to the anchor panel with Dimensionals, a knot was adhered with glue dots and both of the panels popped onto the front of the Calypso Coral card stock base with Dimensionals.  

Stampin' Up! Seaside Shore Cardiology by Jari

 

I stamped a sentiment from Suite Sentiments for my inside panel and finished the bottom edge with more of the By the Shore DSP found on the front of the card.  

And because I really love this paper, I decided to decorate the outside flap of my Very Vanilla envelope with another pattern from the pack!

Stampin’ Up! Suite Sentiments

I’m sharing a card created with the Suite Sentiments stamp set, from Stampin’ Up! today. 

Stampin' Up! Suite Sentiments by Cardiology by Jari

 

 

My sketch was inspired by the sketch challenge this week at Fab Friday:

FabFri107

 

And I used the TGIFc97 color combo challenge for my color choices:

TGIFc97

 

I think you could say I really like this color combo, as my last card was created with the exact same combo!  Trust me, it was not planned, but I do love them together.  I started by adhering a panel from Cupcakes and Carousels to a panel of Calypso Coral. Then, adhered that panel to my Bermuda Bay card stock base.  Using the ink to rubber technique, I colored the sentiment, from Suite Sentiments, with Calypso Coral and Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write Markers.  Next, I huffed on it a few times, then stamped it onto a panel of Very Vanilla.  

 

Stampin' Up! Suite Sentiments by Cardiology by Jari

 

The sentiment was then die cut with a banner die from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets dies.  The larger banner is a strip of Bermuda Bay Glimmer paper notched at either end with my Banner Triple Punch. My  Lace Doily was then cut in half and I adhered the Very Vanilla side onto a half circle die cut from Calypso Coral card stock.

I chose another sentiment from the Suite Sentiments stamp set and stamped it in Calypso Coral onto the Very Vanilla card stock base.
