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! 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! Hip Hip Hooray

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s weekend started off?  Does anyone have plans for Father’s Day tomorrow?  My daughter and I are making my husband a big brunch. My niece, her husband and boys are coming over to join us.  We started doing this a couple years ago and he loves it.

If any of you saw my post on Thursday for our blog hop, you saw that I had an oops.  I used the wrong color.  I had made another card to use, but I was told it was ok the colors were close enough.  Here’s the other card I made using the right colors.  My older little nephew graduated from his elementary school and moved to the intermediate school, so I wanted to make him a card too.  He’s 9, so it’s a little harder since he’s too old for cutesy things, but not old enough for grown up things yet.

I played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #276.  Here is their theme.

I started by cutting a panel of Just Jade and Pretty Peacock cardstock using the Best Plaid Builder Dies.  I adhered the Pretty Peacock panel first onto a Pear Pizzazz card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the Just Jade cut panel on top of the Pretty Peacock panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of the Just Jade 1/4″ Ribbon around the panel tied a knot and adhered the card front to a Pear Pizzazz card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the 2nd largest die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I stamped the 2 sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink  on the cut panel.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Cling Stamp Set in Just Jade Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  When you cut the cardstock using the Best Plaid Builder Dies you are left with a lot of squares.  I decorated the inside of the card using these squares adhering them down with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a strip of the Forever Greenery 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!!

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! Blue Peony for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  Is anyone doing anything fun this weekend?  Normally this is the weekend that we have our quarterly in person team meeting, but under the circumstances we will not be able to meet in person.  Hopefully we will for our next quarterly meeting.  Instead, we will be meeting up together virtually.  It should still be fun.  This was also the weekend I was finally going to be off from work.  Notice I said ‘was’.   Yup, my boss asked me to come in both days to relieve my cashiers so they could take a lunch break, so I’ll be working both days for a couple hours.

So for today’s card I have a super simple fun fold.  I finally got brave and tried making the layered peony.  It’s much easier that it appears when you first look at all the dies. Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Global Design Project Challenge #244.  Their theme is CASE = Copy And Selectively Edit.

I also played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #275.  Here is their theme.

I started by cutting 1 1/2″ off the right side of the card front base.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Balmy Blue mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the front of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Peony Dies for all the following, I cut all the layers of the peony out of a panel of Seaside Spray cardstock.  Using my Sponge Dauber I sponged all the edges of the pieces using Misty Moonlight Ink.  I embossed the pieces using my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder then using my Bone Folder I curled the edges of all the pieces.  I layered the pieces one inside the other and adhered them together using Glue Dots.  I cut the center of the peony from a scrap of So Saffron cardstock and brushed some Clear Wink of Stella over it.  I adhered it to the center of the flower using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.   I cut 3 large leaves from a panel of Just Jade cardstock and 3 leaf edges from a panel of Shaded Spruce cardstock.  I embossed the leaves using my Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the Shaded Spruce leaf pieces to the full leaves using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered them to the back of the peony using Glue Dots.

I added some of the Misty Moonlight/Silver Bakers Twine, from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack, to the card front.  I adhered the peony over the twine using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Special Someone Photopolymer Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink.  I made it into a banner and adhered it to the peony using Glue Dots.  I added a few of the clear Elegant Faceted Gems to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Special Someone stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the medium peony from the Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Cling Stamp Set on the bottom of the panel in Misty Moonlight Ink and colored it in using my Seaside Spray and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the left side of a Seaside Spray mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered a small panel of the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to the right side of the Seaside Spray mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I then adhered it to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the medium peony from the Prized Peony stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Seaside Spray and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the 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 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Inspiring Iris

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  We’re halfway through the week already and a little over halfway through the month.   These past few months have been a blur.  I got a wonderful phone call yesterday.  My hair dresser called me to tell me they should be opening up June 1st.  I was so excited.  Just like many of you, I am in desperate need of a hair cut.  I’m not sure how this whole thing is going to work.  I’m assuming we have to wear masks and stay covered while there.   I’m sure I’ll find out.

For today’s card I pulled out a stamp set from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and paired it with some of the new DSP and Embossing Folder from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here is my card for today.

My colors were inspired by Global Design Project #241.  Here are their colors.

My design is from Crazy 4 Challenges #535.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the new Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to a Pretty Peacock card base using Snail.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the outline iris image and the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Inspiring Iris Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I stamped the leaf fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink and I stamped the flower fill image from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink.  I adhered the artwork to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail.   I adhered some of the retiring Rose Metallic Thread to the back of the matted artwork using Snail.

I cut 3 of the 2nd smallest scalloped squares from the Layering Squares Dies out of a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock.  I cut 3 of the smallest squares from the Stitched Shapes Dies out in Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I embossed all 3 squares using the new Greenery Embossing Folder and adhered them to the scalloped squares using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the 3 matted squares to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I made a small bow using the Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon and adhered it to the bottom of the flowers using a Glue dot.  I added a few of the retiring Pretty Peacock Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped just the leaf and flower fill images from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Soft Seafoam and Blushing Bride Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Snail 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 leaf and flower fill images from the Inspiring Iris stamp set in Soft Sea Foam and Blushing Bride Ink on the front of the envelope.  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!!
