Linda’s Card Class Projects

Today I am sharing two cards from Linda’s card class projects.  Linda is a member of my Playtime with Paper team.  In addition to being on my team, Linda leads her team, the Crafty Herons.  Due to COVID-19 precautions, we are temporarily offering online card classes vs the in person classes.  Participants in the classes purchase the project kits and join in via Zoom for the scheduled class.  So, last week Linda led a group of craft friends through construction of four projects.  Since I could not attend the class, Linda provided project photos.  And, I’m sharing two of the projects with you.  You’ll find the descriptions below each photo.

Ornate Garden CongratulationsCongratulations card

For the project above, the Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper provides a beautiful background.  Using the Ornate Border Dies, the designer series paper is cut before adding it to the Thick Whisper White cardstock base.  Next, cut a strip of Whisper White cardstock using the dies.  It overlays the designer series paper’s cut edge. Use the three flower dies in the set to also cut the flowers from Rococo Rose cardstock.  Then, add some shimmer to the flowers with the Clear Wink of Stella.  When dry, use Mini Glue Dots to add the flowers along the border.  The  sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set.  Stamp “Congratulations” onto the lower portion of the card using Rococo Rose Classic Stampin’ Pad.  Gilded Gems embellish the centers of each flower.  For that little extra touch, emboss the envelope flap using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.

Forever Fern Happy Birthday
Forever Fern Birthday Card

To the Thick Whisper White cardstock base, add a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock.  Next, add one of the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper rectangles to the Pretty Peacock layer.  Add a 1-1/4″ x 4″ strip of the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to the card front (referring to photo for approximate placement).  On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set using Pretty Peacock Classic Stampin’ Pad.  Cut the circle using either a 2″ Circle Punch or one of the Layering Circle Dies (keep the sentiment toward the top of the circle).  Select a variety of leaf dies from the Forever Flourishing dies and cut a piece of Just Jade cardstock, Old Olive cardstock and Soft Seafoam cardstock.  Layer the leaves and attach to one another using Mini Glue Dots.  Next, add a Gold Hoop Embellishment to the card and add the sentiment label in the center of the hoop using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then, attach the layer of leaves to the lower portion of the sentiment label with adhesive.  Embellish the stem on the leaves with the gold metallic trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.  

Thank you to Linda for the photos!  I am having fun completing her four class projects.

Forever Greenery Leaves

In this month’s ZOOM card class, one of the cards for participants features the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.  Specifically, the Forever Greenery Leaves page.  So, aptly the card is named to reflect the paper used! (LOL )In addition, the Forever Fern Bundle and the Gold Hoops Embellishments combine to embellish the card front.  The card itself is a simple stamping card so appropriate for any level of card maker.  

Materials for the Forever Greenery Leaves card:
  • Base: Just Jade cardstock: 4-1/4” x 11”, score at 5-1/2” and fold; 1” x 3” scrap
  • Very Vanilla cardstock: 5-1/2” x 3-1/8”; 2-1/2” x 2-1/2”
  • Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper (DSP): 5-1/2” x 3”
  • 2” Circle Punch
  • Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad
  • Forever Fern Stamp Set
  • Forever Flourishing Dies
  • Gold Hoops Embellishments
  • Gold Metallic Trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack
  • Stampin’ Seal 
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Mini Glue Dots

Card Directions:

  1. First, add the Forever Greenery DSP to the Very Vanilla cardstock. Then add the layered Very Vanilla cardstock to the Just Jade card base.
  2. Stamp sentiment onto the small square of Very Vanilla cardstock and cut using the 2” Circle Punch.
  3. With the leaf die, cut the shape from a scrap of Just Jade cardstock.
  4. Add the sentiment label to the front of the card.
  5. Put adhesive onto the Gold Hoop and layer over the sentiment label. NOTE: there will be a very small space between the gold hoop and the label so try to add the gold hoop so the label is in the center.
  6. Attach the Just Jade leaves to the gold hoop using mini glue dots.
  7. Tie a small bow with the Gold Metallic Trim & add to the leaves with a mini glue dot.

Flowers for Every Season

Have you taken note that I enjoy using the various products in the Flowers for Every Season Suite Collection?  I just realized that my past few posts have incorporated items from the suite. So of course, today’s post is no different!  I’m loving the versatility of the product suite. It provides the ability to combine the different elements to create a variety of cards.  Today’s card uses the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Card Pack, as well as, a piece of the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper. 

Here are some of the card details:
  • The front of the card base is texture embossed using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  The floral print layer is from the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Card Pack.  The 1-1/4″ strip is a piece of the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper.  After stamping and cutting the sentiment layer, add a few sprigs of leaves from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Designer Series Paper to the label.  Finally, complete by embellishing with a small bow.

The design is the from the weekly design challenge for the Playtime with Paper team.  Each week, I select a design or color challenge for the team to use.  Below is this week’s challenge from the Sunday Stamps Blog.   

In addition to my take on the design, I am including a card created by Playtime with Paper team member, Linda Edwards of Crafty Heron Designs.  Linda’s card features the Forever Greenery Suite Collection.  Isn’t her card stunning?

Forever Greenery “Sneak Peek”

My product preorder recently arrived and I’m loving the new products.  So I thought I would give you a sneak peak at one of my favorites, the Forever Greenery Suite.  Today’s card uses several products from the Forever Greenery Suite – the Forever Fern Bundle and the gorgeous Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.  The catalog photos of the designer series paper are nice but just wait until you actually see the paper.  The colors are deep and vibrant so you’ll be able to create a variety of beautiful “wow” projects.  The card below is a simple card that highlights a couple prints from the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.  

Forever Greenery

Card Details:
  • For base: use a 4-1/4″ x 11″ piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock, then score at 5-1/2″ and fold to create the base.
  • Select coordinating prints from the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper (DSP).  Cut the first layer of DSP to 5″ x 3-3/4″ and attach to the card base front.  Cut the second layer of DSP to 4-1/2″ x 3-1/4″.  Adhere to the first layer of DSP on the card front.
  • Using the Forever Fern Stamp Set, stamp the berry stem onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock using Pretty Peacock Classic Ink Pad.  Stamp the two sets of medium leaves using Pear Pizzazz Classic Ink Pad onto Whisper White cardstock.  Cut the shapes using the coordinating Forever Flourishing Dies. 
  • On a 2″ square of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the sentiment using the Pear Pizzazz Classic Ink Pad.  With the Stitched Shapes Dies, cut the stitched circle so that the sentiment is toward the right side of the circle (refer to card photo).
  • Add the leaves to the back of the sentiment circle using mini glue dots.  Then attach the berries by offsetting by the sentiment.  
  • Complete the card by adding the sentiment layer to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Per Stampin’ Up! regulations, demonstrators are not able to post photos from the upcoming Annual Catalog until June 3.  But once the catalog is released, I’ll be able to share videos with you that showcase the various bundles and other products.  You’ll find the list of products for this project under the Project Materials section below.  NOTE: the Forever Greenery products are not available for purchase until June 3, 2020.  Just be sure to add the Forever Greenery Suite to your wish list!
