Stampin’ Up! Perennial Floral Essence for Fun Fold Friday

Good Good Friday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is here and Easter is on Sunday.  I don’t know about you, but it’s not feeling like Easter this year to me.  I can’t make my Easter Egg Bread because EVERY store is sold out of yeast.  I didn’t make all my traditional Easter items since we can’t be in any large gatherings and that means no family coming over.  I am thankful to be healthy though.  My whole family has stayed healthy so far.  It’s going to be a very small gathering Sunday so I have to downsize everything I make.  Next Easter we’ll be back to normal.

For today’s Fun Fold I pulled out some items from the Annual Catalog.  This card is perfect if you have a lot of Designer Paper that you want to used up.  I used one of the 2018-2020 In-Colors which will be going away in June.  If you are liking any of these In-Colors, you best to grab them while you can.  Here’s my card for today.

I started with an 12 X 5 1/2″ panel of Blueberry Bushel cardstock which I scored and folded at 2 1/4″, 5″ and 7 3/4″.

I adhered 4 panels of Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to Balmy Blue mats using Snail.  I adhered the matted panels to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  You will be able to see better where they are all adhered in a photo below.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Floral Essence Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I stamped the fern leaf image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Old Olive Ink, below the sentiment.

I stamped the large flower image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock and colored it in using my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut the flower out using my Paper Snips.  I stamped the leaf image from the Floral Essence stamp set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock in Old Olive Ink twice and punched them out using the Leaf Punch.  I adhered the flower to the bottom of the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the leaves under the flower using Glue Dots.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and added a Perennial Essence Floral Center to the flower.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Floral Essence stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered it to the center panel using Snail.

For the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flower image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the leaf images from the Floral Essence stamp set in Old Olive Ink around the flower.  I stamped the flower center from the Floral Essence stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Balmy Blue mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Blueberry Bushel card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large flower image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and colored it in using my Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the leaf images from the Floral Essence stamp set in Old Olive Ink around the flower.  I stamped the flower center from the Floral Essence stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink in the center of the flower.  I adhered a panel of Perennial Essence DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  The 2018-2020 In-Colors Cardstock, 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper, Stamp Pads, Ink Refills, Stampin’ Write Markers, Ribbon and Buttons will all be retiring at the end of May.  If you are loving any or all of these colors, now it the time to get them before they are gone for good.  Happy Stamping!!
