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 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!!
