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.

Peaceful Poppies Suite

Peaceful Poppies Suite

Since my husband and I are are traveling, I am sharing the product video from Stampin’ Up! on the Peaceful Poppies Suite Bundle.  It is available in the recently released January-June 2020 Mini Catalog.  The suite bundle includes two bundles – Painted Poppies bundle and Peaceful Moments bundle.  With the two bundles, you have endless creative possibilities.  I love the vibrant colors of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper.  The hand painted blooms and watercolor washes make beautiful backgrounds or focal points.   

Here’s a short video showcasing the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper…

Aren’t the vibrant colors beautiful? In the video below, Holly shares the products available in the suite.

Isn’t Holly’s explanation of the Suite Bundle wonderful?  By ordering the full Suite Bundle, you’ll have all the materials for endless projects.  Remember with the Suite Bundle, you get not one stamp and die bundle but two – both the Painted Poppies and the Peaceful Moments.

Plus, Sale-a-bration continues until March 31, 2020.  With qualifying purchases of $50 or more (before shipping & taxes), you can order FREE product.  Check out the Sale-a-Bration brochure under (Shop Now).
