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.

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!!

Forever Fern Hello Friendship

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  We’re halfway through the week already and more that halfway through the month.  Time is really flying by lately.

I have one more card for you today that we made at our team meeting on Sunday.  This one was designed by our fabulous team leader Amy Koenders.  She designs the most beautiful cards and loves to use woodgrain paper.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal.

From the Just Jade panel I used the largest die from the Forever Flourishing Dies.  I cut 2 of the eucalyptus dies from the Forever Flourishing Dies out of the Pretty Peacock panel.  I stamped 2 of the leaf images from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the medium and small leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Just Jade Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I cut all the images out using the Forever Flourishing Dies.  Amy used the Gold Hoops Embellishments for her card which I didn’t have, so I decided to use the Gold 1/16″ trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.  I adhered a piece of the gold trim on the card front using Glue Dots and then started layering all the greenery the way I wanted on top of it adhering everything down with Glue Dots or Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the Whisper White panel I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink and cut it out using the smallest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set around the edges in Just Jade and Shaded Spruce Inks.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Early Espresso 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 Just Jade and Shaded Spruce Inks on the front of the envelope. 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 the card we made from our team meeting and will give it a try.  We’d love to have you join us at our meeting.  If you’re interested in joining our team, I’d be happy to talk to you about it, just drop me a line.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Hello

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Things are starting to open up here in NJ.  From what I’ve heard, there are a lot of people not being responsible with keeping their distance.  I will not be going out to any other stores than the one’s I’ve been going to for the past few months.  Because things opened it doesn’t mean it’s over.  People need to be responsible.  Ok, I’m done ranting.

For today’s card I have another one we made at our team meeting on Sunday.  this one was designed by another team member, Mary Deatherage and she made such a beauty.  Here is my card for today.

I started by adhering a panel of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I embossed a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock using the Greenery Embossing Folder then adhered it to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted embossed panel to the center of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered one of the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty  Paper to the center of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink.  I stamped the small leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink over the sentiment a couple times.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink, stamping off once, around the sentiment and leaves.  I cut the sentiment out using the 2nd smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies and adhered it to the center of the gold laser-cut paper using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the card front to a Basic Black card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Free As A Bird Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce and Soft Sea Foam Inks on the side of the panel.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink, stamping off once, around the leaf images.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Basic Black 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 Shaded Spruce and Soft Sea Foam Inks on the envelope front.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink, stamping off once, around the leaf images.  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 the card we made at our team meeting and will give it a try.  We do our team meetings in person every quarter and have a great time.  If you’d like to join our team, drop me a line and I’d be happy to talk to you about joining.  Now is the perfect time to join with the awesome joining special Stampin’ Up! has.  See details below.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Birthday and Thanks

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  We had our ‘In Person’ team meeting yesterday and even though we couldn’t be together, it was a lot of fun.

I have 2 of the 4 cards for you that we made yesterday.  My team members did such an awesome job of designing and demonstrating how to make them.  Today’s are the same technique, but just turning the card and changing the sentiment can make a difference.  These cards were designed by Sue Prather.  Here are the cards for today.

For both cards we did the same thing, just a larger acrylic block for the landscape card.  To get the strip on the card front, we inked up blocks H & I starting at one end and working our way to the other.  We inked about 1″-1 1/2″ with the following inks, Soft Sea Foam, Pear Pizzazz, Garden Green, Shaded Spruce and Pretty Peacock (in that order).  Lightly spritz it with my Stampin’ Spritzer filled with water.  Stamp it on a panel of Thick Whisper White cardstock and let it dry.  Every time you do this technique it will come out differently as you can see in my 2 cards, that’s the best part.

Once it was dry, I stamped the leafy image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink over the color strip.  I then stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set around the leaves in Pretty Peacock Ink.

On the bottom or the top card I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  On the top of the bottom card I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I adhered the card fronts to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On the inside of the top card I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set in the center of a Whisper White panel in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I stamped the leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the bottom of the panel.  On the bottom card I stamped the sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set in the center of a Whisper White panel in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I stamped 3 of the leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Pear Pizzazz, Garden Green and Pretty Peacock Inks.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the leaf images.  For both cards, I adhered the Whisper White panels to Pretty Peacock mats using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card bases using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

 

To finish my cards I decorated Medium Whisper White Envelopes.  I stamped the leaf images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the top envelope and Pear Pizzazz, Garden Green and Pretty Peacock Inks on the bottom envelopes.  The bottom one I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the leaves.  I adhered panels of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to the envelope flaps.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked the cards we made at our meeting and will give them a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Birthday for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Are you ready for the weekend?  I was suppose to have off this Sunday, but my boss asked me if I could come in to relieve my cashiers for a lunch break.  Of course I said yes, but I told him to make it worth my while, I was going to go in the office to get a little work done.  Weekends have been beyond crazy busy in the store and we are still kind of in lock down here.  I can’t image what it’s going to be like when things open up again.

For today’s card I was playing around with some of the new items in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s what I came up with.

My design is from Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge #232.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with Always Fun Challenge #165.  They have a theme challenge and it’s “Layers”.

I played along with Cardz 4 Galz Challenge #123.  Their challenge is ‘More Than One Score (Fold)’.

I also joined in with Just Add Ink Challenge #508.  Here is their challenge.

I started by adhering the 2 panels of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to the front of the card base using the new Stampin’ Seal.  I embossed the small panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using the Greenery Embossing Folder and adhered it to the front of the smaller card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the 2 similar fern images from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the images out using the Forever Flourishing Dies.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock, which I cut using the 5th from the largest Layering Squares Dies, I stamped one of the larger fern images from the Forever Fern stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink around the Pear Pizzazz image multiple times.  From a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock I cut 2 of the eucalyptus images using the Forever Flourishing Dies.  I cut 1 of the leafy images from the Forever Flourishing Dies from a panel of Pear Pizzazz cardstock.

I cut the 2nd & 3rd largest squares from the Stitched Shapes Dies from a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock.  I adhered the Whisper White square to the larger stitched square using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered one of the Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty Paper fern pieces to the artwork using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I arranged and adhered all the other fern/leaf/eucalyptus pieces using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Glue Dots.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the small stitched square panel and adhered it to the small card front using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork above the small square, overlapping it, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I made a multiloop bow out of Linen Thread and tied it off using the Gold Trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.  I adhered the bow to the bottom corner of the artwork using a Glue Dot.  On a strip of Pretty Peacock cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the small card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

I adhered the small card base to the left gate fold of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friend Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leafy image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leafy image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink on the bottom of the envelope front.  I stamped the splatter image from the Forever Fern stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink around the leafy image.  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!!
