Stampin’ Up! Daisy Garden Anniversary

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the weekend and Happy End of July. Hope you have something fun planned. Looks like it’s going to be a beauty here, upper 70’s and sunny. It was beautiful sleeping last night, it was in the low 50’s. I shut off the A/C, opened the windows and turned on my attic fan. I got to fall asleep listening to the crickets, lol.

Today’s card is a quick and easy one that I think we will be making at our class on Tuesday night. Actually today and tomorrow’s card are very similar, you have to let me know which one you like better. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Garden Cling Stamp Set along with the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper for my card. This DSP is one of the 9 that are on sale until Tuesday for 15% off. Now’s the perfect time to stock up and save.

I started by stamping the Daisy Garden image in Versamark Ink on a panel of In Good Taste DSP. I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool. For a little stability, I adhered the card front to a panel of Bumblebee cardstock using Stampin’ Seal.

I wrapped a piece of the Bumblebee 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon around the panel and tied a bow. I adhered the card front to a Bumblebee card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink and cut it out using my Messages Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the Daisy Garden image in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off 3 times on scrap paper, on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set and the Stampin’ Up! Elegantly Said Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink over the daisy image. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Bumblebee card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I stamped part of the Daisy Garden stamp on the front of a Basic White Medium Envelope in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off once. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Forever Fern Wedding

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the weekend. Hope you have something fun planned for the weekend. Today’s my son’s 26th birthday. I can’t believe he’s 26 already, not sure when he got older, but I haven’t. He gets to celebrate with a broken fibula and a ruptured ankle, not much of a celebration. I have to work today, but to my surprise I have off tomorrow, YAY!!! Unfortunately my husband has to work. My intentions now are to get one of my gardens redone. We’ll see how that goes.

Today’s card is something different than my normal. No color. Years ago when my children were little, I did child care. A friend of mine and I both needed to work part-time so we decided to swap kids a couple days a week. It was an even swap till she had a 3rd child and needed me twice a week. I ended up watching her girls along with a couple others 2-3 times a week. I loved the girls that I watched and loved watching them grow up with mine. I was sad when the last one went off to Kindergarten and I only had them in the summer. Well, her middle child is getting marries and I’m going to make a few different wedding cards till I decide which one I want to give her. So here’s my first card for her.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set for my White on White card.

My design and color is from the Try Stamping On Tuesday Challenge #510.

I started by cutting a panel of Shimmery White cardstock using the Potted Succulents Dies and adhered it to a Thick Basic White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I embossed a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Dotty Hearts Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a small panel of Shimmery White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Versamark Ink. I immediately sprinkled it with my Silver Embossing Folder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I adhered a piece of 1/2″ White Faux Lined Ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Pack to the back of the sentiment panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I cut 3 flowers from a panel of Shimmery White cardstock using the Potted Succulent Dies and adhered them on either side of the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Shimmery White mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Changes To The Upcoming July-December Mini Catalog And Second Sale-a-bration


Stampin’ Up! has shared the following update with us related to the upcoming July-December Mini Catalog and second Sale-a-bration this year.  With the global shipping delays, they will be moving the start dates for those two publications back by one month.  Here are the details from Stampin’ Up!:

We’ve recently been made aware that, due to the current global shipping crisis tied to the COVID pandemic, we are not likely to receive the majority of product inventory for the upcoming July–December 2021 Mini Catalog or July–August 2021 Sale-A-Bration in time for the catalog launches. After careful consideration we have decided to push the launches of both publications back by one month to allow time for inventory to be received.
 
Change Details

  • The July–December 2021 Mini Catalog will in effect become the August–December 2021 Mini Catalog (though the title of the publication will not change).
    • Demonstrator Preorder: July 1, 2021 – August 2, 2021
    • Customer Sales Period: August 3, 2021– January 3, 2022
  • July–August 2021 Sale-A-Bration will in effect become August–September 2021 Sale-A-Bration.
    • Demonstrator Pre-earn: July 1, 2021 – August 2, 2021
    • Customer Earning Period: August 3, 2021 – September 30, 2021

I’m so happy that Stampin’ Up! made the decision to move the catalog timing back by a month in order to minimize those frustrating backorders and unavailable items!  Let me know if you have questions about this.  Can’t wait to see the upcoming Mini and Sale-a-bration Catalogs this summer!  And as always, I’ll get those catalogs mailed out to you just as quickly as I can once I get them in early July!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week and heading towards the weekend. How is your week going?

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concept. For the next 2 weeks we have a Luck of The Irish challenge. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used multiple stamp sets for today’s card, but mainly the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Bundle and the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Cling Stamp Set. I was inspired by the colors and the bouquet of flowers for my collage card.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concept and join us this week to play along with our challenge #150. How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Thick Basic White Card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered another darker panel of In Good Taste DSP to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped multiple fern images from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green, Just Jade and Pear Pizzazz Inks. I cut the images out using the Forever Flourishing Dies. I punched 9 daisies using the Medium Daisy Punch and adhered them together in sets of 3 using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the flower pot from the Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents Cling Stamp Set and stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the flower pot and sentiment out using the Potted Succulents Dies and colored the flower pot in using my Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends Markers. Using my Forever Flourishing Dies I cut other fern and leaf images from the Just Jade, Pear Pizzazz, Pretty Peacock, Shaded Spruce and Soft Seafoam panels of cardstock. Using the tiny flower dies from the Wreath Builder Dies I cut out 12 flowers from the panel of So Saffron cardstock. I cut the tiny flowers using the Confetti Flowers Border Punch from the panel of So Saffron cardstock.

I flipped the flower pot upside down and adhered a piece of the 1/4″ Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim with an Antique Slide from the Antique Corners & Slides Embellishments around the pot adhering it in the back with Glue Dots. I adhered the flower pot to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the pieces of fern and flowers to the card front arranging them how I liked using Glue Dots, Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment and small daisy image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in the center of a Basic White panel in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the daisy centers in using my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

To complete my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped some of the fern images from the Forever Fern stamp set on the envelope front and adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Greenery Quick and Easy Card

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s weekend going? It was a gorgeous day here yesterday. It’s suppose to be a little cooler here today and rain. Great crafting day in my books. I’m hoping to get some crafting in after I pack up all my lawn ornaments. I try to get them all put away before the leaves start falling from the trees.

I have a quick and easy card for you today. Here’s my card for today.

I started by adhering a panel of Forever Greenery DSP to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Filed of Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I adhered a panel of the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Designer Series Paper to the Whisper White panel using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue around the edges. I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I tied a small knot using the 1/2″ Whisper white Faux Linen Ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and threaded a small piece of the Gold Trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack through it. I Frayed the gold trim and adhered it to the card front using a Glue Dot.

I added a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Field of Flowers stamp set in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped 2 of the fern images from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set on the bottom of the panel. I stamped on in Eucalyptus image in Just Jade Ink and the smaller leafy image in Shaded Spruce Ink. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the eucalyptus image in Just Jade Ink and the smaller leafy image in Shaded Spruce Ink, both from the Forever Fern stamp set, on the envelope front.

I adhered a panel of Forever Greenery 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Wedding for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  We’re upon the weekend and it’s supposed to be another beautiful one here. Love these cool mornings and warmer afternoons.

Today’s fun fold card is one that I made on Wednesday afternoon on my Facebook Live video.  If you were able to join me or you watched the replay, thank you very much.  If you’d like to view my video either on Facebook or YouTube, the link is below.  I needed another wedding card for my boss from my family, here’s what I came up with.   I’m calling it a folded gate fold with a belly band.

I started by scoring and folding my Thick Whisper White card base at 1 1/4″, 3 3/8″, 7 5/8″ & 9 3/4″.  I adhered 4 panels of Peony Garden Designer Series Paper to 4 Gray Granite mats using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered 2 of the matted panels to the outside panels of the card base and 2 to the inside panels of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid glue.

I embossed 2 panels of Gray Granite cardstock using the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder and adhered them to the narrow front panels of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the belly band, I adhered a panel of Petal Pink cardstock to a panel of Gray Granite cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped the belly band around the card and adhered it using Tear & Tape. I wrapped a piece of 1/4″ Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon around the belly band securing it down with Glue Dots.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink.  I stamped one of the leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink, stamping off once,  on either side of the sentiment.  I cut the sentiment out using the frame die from the Wild Rose Dies.  I cut 2 of the largest fern dies from the Forever Flourishing Dies from a panel of Vellum cardstock and adhered them to the belly band using Glue Dots.  I adhered the die cut sentiment to the belly band using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the sentiment die.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink in the center of a Whisper White Panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Gray Granite mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Seafoam on the envelope front once full strength and once stamped off.  I adhered a panel of Peony Garden 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 list of supplies are below along with the measurements if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video.  You can watch it on my Facebook page Here.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Well Said Wedding

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend.

TODAY ONLY!!!

Stock up on stamp sets at a stellar price! For one day only, you can purchase select cling and photopolymer stamp sets at a 15% discount. This short, stamp-tacular sale only happens once a year—you won’t want to miss out on these super savings!

My boss is getting married this weekend and I was volunteered to collect from all of our part timers for a gift for him and his future wife.  All I said is that I would put together a card for them, I’m always getting volunteered for something.  Here is the wedding card I made for them.  Now I need to come up with one more design for a card from my family and I.

I started by cutting the outline of the floral die from the Many Layered Blossoms Dies out of a pane of Whisper White cardstock which was adhered to an Adhesive Sheet.  I cut the 2nd die cut from the Many Layered Blossoms Dies from a panel of Shimmery White cardstock.  I cut a panel of Soft Seafoam cardstock into pieces and cut just the leaves out of the 2 dies from the Many Layered Blossoms Dies to fill in on the white pieces.  I cut the small flower outlines from the Many Layered Blossoms Dies out of a panel of Shimmery White cardstock and the small  2nd die cut of the small flowers from a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, which was adhered to an Adhesive Foam Sheet.

I adhered the Shimmer White die to the front of a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Soft Seafoam leaves using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White outline die to the top of the Shimmery White flower with the Adhesive Sheet.  I adhered the small outlined flowers to the Very Vanilla flowers and then to the card front with the Adhesive Foam Sheet attached.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and edged it using my Soft Seafoam Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut the ‘bride  groom’ out of a panel of Champagne Foil Sheet using the Well Written Dies and adhered them to the card front, over the flowers, using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I added a few of the clear Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Well Said stamp set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I didn’t decorate the inside like I normally do since so many people have to sign the card.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Champagne Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped one of the leaf images from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Soft Seafoam Ink, stamping off once, on the envelope front.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Seafoam Ink around the leaf image.  I adhered a panel of Peony Garden Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches CAS

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  We’re halfway through our week already and on our way to the weekend.  You just have to love these 4 day work weeks.

It’s been taking my a while to make this decision, but I have finally decided to start doing Facebook Live videos.  I’ve done a couple before, but I thought I would give it a shot.  I will be going live today at 4pm.  I’d love feedback from everyone letting me know if this is a good time.  I’ve tried to pick a time that my team members don’t go live, since I like to watch them, and boy was that hard.  If you able to watch that would be awesome, if not, I will be posting the videos with the card on my blog and on my YouTube channel.  You can click on the Facebook icon above and it will take you to my Facebook page.  Fingers crossed all goes well.

To celebrate my victory of getting over doing FaceBook Live videos, I’m giving away a pack of Wonderful Gems to everyone who places an order through my online store of $50 or more from today, September 9th, until Monday September 14th.  This is in addition to my $10 gift of your choice.  Please remember to use my current Host Code G39RYMEX.  Please note, per the Demonstrator rules from Stampin’ Up!, I am only able to ship Stampin’ Up! merchandise to addresses within the United States.  Thanks for your understanding.

For today’s card I have a Clean and Simple one for you.  This is actually the design I am making today live, just a little different.  So if you want to stamp along, the measurements are below.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by stamping a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Touches Cling Stamp Set randomly around in Misty Moonlight Ink.

I stamped the splatter image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink around the flowers.  I adhered the artwork to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the sentiment from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flower image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in the top and bottom corner of the panel in Misty Moonlight Ink.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Just Jade Ink around the flowers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Tasteful Touches stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the envelope front and the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Just Jade Ink around the flower.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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. Happy Stamping!!

For example, all plates are labeled with a number and are color coded for easy reference and use when building your sandwich. And just like the name suggests, our Magnetic Cutting Plates have fully-magnetic surfaces to make it easy to securely position your dies and keep them in place.
  • Simple to store. The platforms on both machines fold for space-saving storage and they look pretty too–the sleek, clean design suits any crafting space.
  • Portable. You can use both machines at home or on the go with their folding platforms and ergonomic carrying handles.

Stampin’ Up! Love and Laughter CAS

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone’s week going?  I’ve been working Monday, Tuesday and today.  One of my full time cashiers was out and they needed someone to fill in, but I do have tomorrow and Friday off (so far).  We’re already halfway through the week and before you know it the weekend will be here.

For today I have a really quick and easy card for you.  I think this one may have taken me all of 10-15 minutes.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by adhering a Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper card front to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered one of the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper panels to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, just in the center.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  There wasn’t a die that cut it narrow enough so I had to make my own.  I lined the rectangle up with the top half of the sentiment and cut part way, making sure not to go all the way through.  I moved the rectangle up and lined it up with the bottom half of the sentiment and lined up the stitches on the cardstock with the stitches on the die and cut part way through again.  I adhered the sentiment to the gold laser-cut panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the matted card front to a Garden Green card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink multiple times on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink multiple times on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Forever Greenery 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. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Friendship

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  It was a pretty quiet weekend other than work.  Mu husband got out taxes done finally, nothing like waiting till the last minute.

For today’s card I have a bit of a collage card for you.  I was playing around with the Forever Flourish Dies and here’s what I came up with.

My card played along with Festive Friday Challenge # FF0063.  Here is their Inspo List. I have the Friendship Sentiment (on the inside), Green, Ribbon, Die Cuts and Embossing.

I started by cutting the different flourishes from the Forever Flourishing Dies from panels of Just Jade, Pear Pizzazz, Pretty Peacock and Soft Seafoam.  Some I cut 1 of, some 2 and some 4.

I stamped some of the leaf images from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock in Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, Pretty Peacock and Shaded Spruce.  I cut all those images out using the Forever Flourishing Dies.  I arranged all the greenery the way I liked it on my E Clear Acrylic Block.  I place the F Clear Acrylic Block on top of them and flipped it over, removed the E Block and adhered Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots around holding the pieces together.  I knew I wouldn’t be able to remember how I arranged them that’s why I did it that way.

I embossed a Shaded Spruce card  front using the Greenery Embossing Folder.  I embossed 1/2 the cardstock and then lined it up and embossed the other 1/2.  I adhered 2 of the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper to the card front using Glue Dots.  I adhered the collage of greenery on top of the laser-cut pieces using the Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I wrapped a piece of the Whisper White 1/2″ Faux Linen Ribbon, from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack, around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped one of the leafy images from Forever Fern stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on the bottom right of the panel and the eucalyptus image in Pretty Peacock Ink on the other side.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the leaves and sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Shaded Spruce mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, Pretty Peacock and Shaded Spruce Inks on the envelope front and envelope flap.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the leaf images.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Anniversary Rose for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday and a holiday weekend.  Hopefully most of you have today off for a nice long weekend and have some fun plans ahead.  I don’t normally work on Friday’s, so I’m off today and tomorrow.  This is one of the few holidays that our store is closed, and it’s been like this for 60+ years YAY!!

So, did you ever have one of those days you had all planned out and nothing went as planned.  That was yesterday for me.  I made a To Do List as soon as I got up at 5am (yes I’m an early bird).  I knew everything I had to get done and I knew I had plenty of time to get it all done.  Then vertigo hit followed by a panic attack.  I’ve never had an episode before so I didn’t know what was happening.  Long story short, I only got 1 thing done on my list and was not happy. Guess today’s another day to try.

For today’s fun fold I tried another one I’ve never done before.  I can’t remember what it’s called, so I’m calling it a flip card.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors, once again, were inspired by some roses I have.  I ordered plants a couple years ago and they sent me a free St. Patrick’s Day rose bush.  It looked dead when I got it, but I planted it anyway.  I had no clue what color, I thought it would be orange or green.  Here’s what I got.

This was the 1st rose of the season.

I went out yesterday to these 2 beauties.

I was amazed how the same plant could have 2 different color roses on it, 1st to the 2nd 2.

I started by cutting out the front of a Pear Pizzazz card base using the 2nd largest square from the Layering Squares Dies and set the square to the side.  I randomly stamped the outline leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! To A Wild Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink around on the card front.

I stamped the rose image from To a Wild Rose stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Wild Rose Dies.  I cut the 3rd largest square from the Layering Squares Dies out of the panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped it multiple times with the outline leaf image from the To a Wild Rose stamp set.  I colored the leaves in using my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the 3rd largest scallop square out of a panel of Gray Granite cardstock using my Layering Squares Dies.

On the panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink and cut the sentiment out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Gray Granite scallop square to the Pear Pizzazz square I cut out from the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the stamped Whisper White panel on top of the Gray Granite square using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the die cut rose to the Whisper White  square using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front and 1 to the rose.

For the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink on a Thick Whisper White panel.  I used Thick Whisper White because I knew this was the part that would be opened and closed and get a lot of wear.  I stamped the outlined leaf image from the To a Wild Rose stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink, some full strength and some stamped off.  I stamped the rose image from the To a Wild Rose stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment.  I adhered a Gray Granite panel to the inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I scored the Thick Whisper White panel at 2″ & 4″ and adhered it to the top left of the Gray Granite panel using Tear & Tape just on the right 2″ X 4 1/4″ part.  I accordion folded the Whisper White panel and closed the card front on top of it.  I adhered the artwork to the Whisper White panel through the square on the card front, fitting it back in where it came out of.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the outlined rose image from the To a Wild Rose stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the outlined leaf image from the To a Wild Rose stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink around the rose and on the envelope flap, some full strength and some stamped off.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. I hope you all have a very safe and fun 4th of July.  Happy Stamping!!
