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! Count My Blessings Sneak Peek!

Today I am sharing the new Count My Blessings stamp set from the upcoming 2017 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  Count My Blessings is available for purchase on September 1st.  It is part of the Painted Autumn Suite.

I noticed that the acorn leaf image from Count My Blessings was similar to a leaf image from the  Lovely As A Tree stamp set.  I always loved that leaf image, so I paired it up with my card today!  

The leaf image from Lovely As A Tree was stamped randomly in Crumb Cake ink onto a panel of Crumb Cake card stock. Then, I matted that panel to Early Expresso card stock and adhered them to the Crumb Cake card stock base with liquid glue.

Next I matted a strip of the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (available Sept. 1st) to a panel of Early Expresso and adhered them to the card front with some liquid glue.  I stamped the small leaves image from Count My Blessings in Garden Green on a banner of Garden Green card stock and popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The acorn/leaf image from Count My Blessings was stamped in Basic Black Archival ink onto a panel of watercolor paper.  I used my Aqua Painter and the lids of my Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Garden Green ink pads to color it in., then I used my Paper Snips to cut it out.  While it was drying, I stamped the large sentiment in Early Expresso onto Very Vanilla card stock and cut it out with a Stitched Shapes oval die.  I tied a double bow with Linen Thread and adhered the acorn art piece to the banner with liquid glue.  My oval sentiment was added with dimensionals and three Garden Green enamel shapes were added for additional color.

For the inside Crumb Cake panel, I used more of the leaf and leaf and acorn images to stamp around the outer edges in Crumb Cake ink, stamping off on scrap paper first.  In my mind, I had planned on stamping the sentiment in Early Expresso, but forgot-UGH-until I was glueing it down onto the Early Expresso frame.  The Crumb Cake really doesn’t show as well as I would have liked, but I decided not to re-do it!  Enjoy!
