Snowflake Sentiments Bundle for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, welcome to our hop.  I used the Snowflake Sentiments Bundle to create the Christmas card I am sharing today.  

Here is our sketch for this week:  

Happy Inkin' Thursday Sketch Snowflake Sentiments

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments-Cardiology by Jari

I started by cutting one of my Snowflake Sentiments stamps apart!  I knew that I wanted to stamp some small snowflakes onto my Whisper White panel, so I just cut one off the end of the three.  Then I inked it up with Soft Sky, stamped it off once on scrap paper, and onto the Whisper White.  This panel was adhered to the Silver Foil with liquid glue.

Next, I die cut a panel of Soft Sky with the pretty scalloped die from the Swirly Snowflake Thinlets.  I pulled out some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper for the snowflake die, running it through the Big Shot 5-6 times because of the thickness of that paper.  I still had to use a Paper Piercing Tool to get some of the center parts out of the cut outs!  I used liquid glue to adhere the snowflakes to the scalloped outline, then adhered the panel to the Whisper White art panel.  Then, I used my Paper Snips to trim off the sides to fit.  

The sentiment is from the Star of Light stamp set and was heat embossed with Versa Mark ink and Silver Emboss Powder.  I used some sequins and Rhinestone Basic Jewels to add some sparkle.  The art panel was adhered to the Soft Sky card stock base.

The Whisper White panel was die cut on the bottom with another die from the Swirly Snowflake Thinlets.  The sentiment is from Snowflake Sentiments and heat embossed with Silver Emboss Powder.  Several snowflakes were die cut in Soft Sky and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and adhered with Glue Dots.  A Rhinestone Jewel was added to the center of each snowflake.  Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Year of Cheer for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Flurry of Wishes stamp set to create my card for this week’s blog hop.  We have a sketch challenge that I think you will enjoy!

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Stampin' Up1 Year of Cheer-Cardiology by Jari

The Year of Cheer DSP really makes it easy to create a stunning card with very little effort!  I started with a Whisper White Thick card stock base and adhered a panel of the plaid Year of Cheer DSP to it with liquid glue.  

Stampin' Up1 Year of Cheer-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I dry embossed a Champagne Foil panel with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Then, I popped it onto the front at an angle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Another panel from Year of Cheer DSP was adhered to the embossed panel with Glue Dots.  

I inked up the sentiment from Flurry of Wishes in VersaMark ink, sprinkled it with Gold Emboss Powder and heated it until smooth and shiny.  The sentiment panel was then matted with a little larger panel of Gold Foil.  A banner was cut using the Bunch of Banners Thinlets Dies and Gold Foil, cut in half and adhered to the sentiment with Glue Dots.  

The snowflake was die cut from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlets Dies and one Rhinestone Basic Jewel added for a little bling.  

Stampin' Up! Year of Cheer-Cardiology by Jari

More heat embossing for the inside sentiment, also from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set, and I finished it off with a little more of the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP on the back flap of the envelope.  Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Sentiments Gift Box

I am sharing a Snowflake Sentiments Gift Box created with the Snowflakes Sentiments Bundle and the new Acetate Card Box found in the Holiday Catalog.  Every year, Stampin’ Up! provides the cutest pre-made boxes for us to decorate for gift giving, and this one is no exception!  If you don’t look carefully, it is easy to miss on page 13 of the Holiday Catalog.  They are designed for holding 5 standard cards and envelopes, but can also double as a gift box for anything your little heart desires.  

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments Gift Box-Cardiology by Jari

A couple of weeks ago, I created a card using the Snowflakes Sentiments Bundle and this same color scheme (see it HERE) so I decided to decorate my Acetate Box similarly.  Below is a side view when filled with cards and envelopes.

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments Gift Box-Cardiology by Jari

The Swirly Snowflakes Thinlets Dies are just so beautiful, don’t you think?  I cut two of the snowflake dies in Silver Foil, and two of the outline dies in Real Red, then adhered them with dots of Liquid Glue.  Because I positioned them horizontally on the Acetate Box, I had to trim the sides down some with my Paper Snips.  A narrow belly band was adhered to the snowflake cut outs with glue dots, and then the overlap in the back adhered with a few more Glue Dots.

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments Gift Box-Cardiology by Jari

The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark ink, sprinkled with White Emboss Powder and heat embossed, then die cut with an oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies. Another scalloped oval was cut from Garden Green, adhered to the sentiment and set aside.  I wrapped a strand of Basic Black Baker’s Twine around the belly band and box three times, made a looped bow and knotted it.  Then, the sentiment was popped onto the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

Stampin'n Up! Snowflake Sentiments Gift Box-Cardiology by Jari

Two small snowflakes were die cut from Silver Foil and adhered with a glue dot and a Rhinestone Basic Jewel adorns the center.  Finally, I cut two of the little tags found in the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlets Dies, one in white and one in plaid.  They were glued together and attached with a length of Silver Metallic Ribbon.  

Another adorable use of these Acetate Boxes is to fill them with candy.  Here is one I know you will love that was created by Amy Koenders, my upline.  

Well, what are you waiting for, order these Acetate Boxes and start making your own Snowflake Sentiments Gift Box today!  Starting October 1st, you can also get the Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper that I used for my card and belly band for FREE, when you buy 3 of the Designer Series Papers listed in the promotion below!

Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Sentiments Bundle

I used the Snowflake Sentiments Bundle to create the card I am sharing with you today.  I know, I just used this set, but it is quickly becoming a favorite of mine!

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

I was inspired by the sketch over at Paper Craft Crew this week

Snowflake Sentiments Bundle for PCC#258

I started by embossing a Real Red panel with the Oh My Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, then adhered a length of Basic Black Shimmer Ribbon to it with Tear & Tape Adhesive.  Next, I adhered panels of Garden Green and   Christmas Around the World DSP to a mat of Basic Black card stock.  I die cut the long Silver banner with a die from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlets Dies and adhered it to the center with tiny dots of my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  

The center panel was adhered to the Real Red panel with liquid glue and then to the Basic Black card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

While at my Big Shot, I also die cut the swirls and snowflakes from Silver Foil using more dies from the Snowflake Sentiments Bundle.  Remember you save 10% when you bundle!  The sentiment is also from the stamp set and was inked with VersaMark ink, sprinkled with White Emboss Powder and heat embossed on Basic Black.  A Stitched Shapes circle die was used to cut out the sentiment, then a scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Framelits was cut from Silver Foil to frame it.  

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

 

A length of Silver Thread was wound around and secured to the back of the sentiment circle with Glue Dots.  Then I adhered the Silver Foil swirly shapes with Glue Dots and popped the whole sentiment panel onto the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The two die cut snowflakes were glued with a small dab from my Fine Tip Glue Pen and some Rhinestone Basic Jewels added for the finishing touch.  

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

For the inside, I chose more of the plaid DSP for the bottom of the Whisper White panel, layering it onto a panel of Real Red and finally onto the Basic Black card base with liquid glue. 

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

Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Sentiments Bundle

I used the new Snowflakes Sentiments Bundle to create a card to share with you today. It’s never too early to begin your Christmas cards, just one more thing to mark off your long list of things to be completed in time!


Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments Bundle-Cardiology by Jairi

My sketch was inspired by the As You See It Challenge #157

As You See It Challenge #157

When I saw the dies in the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlets set, I knew I had to have this bundle.  Remember to bundle and save 10%!  I will link a video created by Stampin’ Up! at the end of my post so that you can see more of this fabulous set.  

I started with a panel of Whisper White and adhered a little smaller panel of Merry Music Specialty DSP to it with liquid glue.  Next, I stamped the sentiment from Snowflake Sentiments in VersaMark ink onto a panel of Basic Black, sprinkled it with Silver Emboss Powder and heat embossed it until smooth and  shiny.  Once cooled, I adhered a panel of Silver Foil to the sentiment panel and wrapped it with 1/8″ Silver Ribbon and tied a bow.

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

Next, I die cut two of the Swirly Snowflake dies from Silver Foil, cut them down some with my Paper Snips and adhered them to the back of the sentiment panel with liquid glue.  Once the glue was dry, I added some Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the card front.  I die cut two snowflakes, adhered them in the center with my Fine Tip Glue Pen, added a half of a Mini Dimensional and popped it onto the sentiment panel.  

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments-Cardiology by Jari

One Rhinestone Basic Jewel was added to the center of the single snowflake and three others were added to the DSP. Finally, the whole art panel was adhered to the Basic Black card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Snowflake sentiments Bundle-Cardiology by Jari

The inside sentiment was stamped in VersaMark ink and sprinkled with Silver Emboss Powder and heat embossed onto a panel of Whisper White.  I added a strip of the same DSP with a Silver Foil mat to the bottom of the panel and then adhered it to the card base.  One more snowflake was created from the two snowflake dies from the bundle and adhered with glue.  One Rhinestone was then added to the center and I was finished!  

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