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! Corner Bouquet Anniversary

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything exciting or fun? This time of year with the cold weather, other than work, I stay in and sometimes relax.

For today I have another Sale-A-Bration card for you. This is our last week to earn FREE product. There’s still time to place your orders and get your free items. For today I used the Stampin’ Up! Corner Bouquet Cling Stamp Set. Here’s today’s card.

My colors are from Color Throwdown #630. I just love these colors together.

I started by embossing a Mint Macaron card front using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to a Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the image from the Corner Bouquet stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink. I cut the image out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to a Gold Foil mat using Stampin’ Seal. Using the Confetti Flowers Border Punch I punched out some tiny flowers from a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock. I cut some other flowers out of the Blushing Bride cardstock using the Wreath Builder Dies. I adhered the flowers to the artwork using tiny amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I made a tiny bow using the Gold Trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and adhered it to the bottom of the flowers using a Glue Dot. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Many Messages Cling Stamp in Soft Suede Ink and cut it out using my Messages Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the flower centers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hearty To Heart Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I stamped the image from the Corner Bouquet stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom of the panel and added some more of the Blushing Bride flowers I cut out using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Mint Macaron mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Stampin’ Seal. I added a few more Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the flowers.

To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the image from the Corner Bouquet stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Blushing Bride Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper on 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! Arrange A Wreath for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Jaimie Babarczy’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “Giving Thanks”.  We can interpret this however we want.  Here’s my card.

My colors were inspired by Paper Players Challenge #512. Here are their beautiful fall colors.

I also played along with Double “D” Challenge. Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut one of the wreaths from the Wreath Builder Dies out of a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock and adhered it to a wreath from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Designer Series Paper using small amounts of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I stamped 5 of the leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink on a panel of Cajun Craze cardstock and cut them out using the Wreath Builder Dies. I cut 5 flowers out of a panel of Crushed Curry cardstock using the Wreath Builder Dies. I adhered the flowers and leaves to the wreath using Glue Dots.

I cut a circle out of a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Layering Circle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of the circle. I adhered the wreath to the circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I made a small bow using the 3/8″ Embroidered Ribbon and adhered it to the wreath using Glue Dots. I added Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the flower centers.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the flowers and leaf images from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze Ink on the panel and colored the flower centers in using my Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends Marker. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the flower and leaf images from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze Ink along the bottom of the envelope front and colored the flower centers in using my Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered a panel of the Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Fall Wreath for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  Hope you are all doing well today.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a color challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here are our colors for this week.

Here’s my card using this weeks colors.

I played along with TGIF Inspiration Challenge #282.  Here is their inspiration.

I started by stamping the Wreath image from the Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of a Whisper White card front.  I stamped the sentiment from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the wreath.  I embossed the panel using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to a Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut 1 of the wreaths from the Wreath Builder Dies out of a panel of Whisper White cardstock and 1 from a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock.  I adhered the wreaths to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut 3 flowers from the Wreath Builder Dies out of a panel of Cajun Craze cardstock.  I cut the flower centers from a scrap of Basic Black cardstock.  I cut 9 sprigs from the Wreath Builder Dies out of a panel of Blackberry Bliss cardstock.  I adhered the flower centers to the back of the flowers using a tiny amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the flowers to the wreath using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the sprigs around the flowers using Glue Dots.

From the Blackberry Bliss panel I cut the bow from the Wreath Builder Dies and adhered it to the wreath using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Iridescent Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink around the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the leaf image from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the envelope front and the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Thanksgiving Wreath

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun?  I hope you are all getting off to a great start of a new week.

For today I played with another new to me set from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by adhering a panel of Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using the Wreath Builder Dies, I cut one of the wreaths from a panel of Cinnamon Cider cardstock and one from a panel of Just Jade cardstock.  I cut 4 flowers from the same die set out of a panel of Bumblebee cardstock and 4 flower centers from the Cinnamon Cider cardstock.  I stamped the flower center image from the Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the flower center dies.  I adhered the centers to the Bumblebee flowers using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Just Jade wreath on top of the Cinnamon Cider wreath using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the flowers on the bottom of the wreath using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.

I made a small bow using the 1/4″ Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon and adhered it to the top of the wreath using a Glue Dot.  I stamped the sentiment from the Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered a thin strip of Just Jade cardstock using Stampin’ Seal on the bottom back of the sentiment and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Bumblebee 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the sentiment and card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the extra flower I die cut above the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To complete my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a strip of Poinsettia Place DSP to the front of the envelope 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!!
