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! Bloom and Grow Hello

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  It is not supposed to be a nice day here.  Severe thunder storms are expected, we’ll see what happens.

My colors for today’s card were inspired by more flowers around my house in my gardens and flower pots and of course these are not my favorites, but the flowers all look so pretty.  The marigolds, I had seeds from last years plants so I threw them in a pot to see what would happen, they are growing like weeds.  The tiny orange flowers attract butterflies and I have them in 3 different gardens.

Here is my card using these colors.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to a Mango Melody mat using Stampin’ Seal then adhering it to a Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I embossed a small panel of Daffodil Delight card stock using the Greenery Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Mango Melody mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Bloom & Grow Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the Bloom & Grow stamp set above the image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Poppy Parade and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Mango Melody mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I adhered a strip of the In Good Taste DSP to the edge of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in the center of the panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped 3 of the small floral images from the Bloom & Grow stamp set on the bottom of the panel and colored them in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Poppy Parade and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Mango Melody mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped 3 of the small floral images from the Bloom & Grow stamp set across the bottom of the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Poppy Parade and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers.  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 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 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! Just Because

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  We’re having an absolutely gorgeous weekend here, though I’ve been inside at work.  The humidity has been lower and the sun is shining, what more can you ask for.

I’ve used another new stamp set coming in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, coming this Wednesday June 3rd, for my card today.  My card has a LOT of stamping going on.  I’ve also used a couple of the 2018-2020 retiring colors, so if you like these colors, you only have 2 days left to get them.  Here’s today’s card.

My colors were inspired by As You See It Color Challenge #226.  Here are their colors.

My design is from CAS Colours & Sketch Challenge #372.  Here is their sketch.

I started with a Shimmery Whisper card front and randomly stamped the images from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Cling Stamp Set in Call Me Clover, Daffodil Delight and Lovely Lipstick Inks.  Some of the images are stamped full strength and some are stamped off to give different shades.

I embossed a panel of Call Me Clover cardstock using the new Greenery Embossing Folder.  I cut the smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies out of Daffodil Delight cardstock and embossed it using the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder.  On a panel of Lovely Lipstick cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I cut the panel out using the 2nd smallest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the Daffodil Delight circle and the Call Me Clover rectangle to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Lovely Lipstick oval to the card front overlapping the Call Me Clover and Daffodil Delight panels using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the card front to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and added a few Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I randomly stamped the images from the Lovely You stamp set in Call Me Clover, Daffodil Delight and Lovely Lipstick Inks around the edges of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Mates Cling Stamp Set in the center of the panel in Soft Suede Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Call Me Clover mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I randomly stamped the images from the Lovely You stamp set in Call Me Clover, Daffodil Delight and Lovely Lipstick on the bottom of the envelope front and the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Some of the items used today will be retiring as of Tuesday June 2nd and some will be available from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog starting Wednesday June 3rd.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend and are able to get out in some beautiful sunshine 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!!
