ISS Blog Hop Anything Goes

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Ink. Stamp. Share. Blog Hop! Today I’m sharing my Quick DSP Card using the Forever Greenery Suite Collection. These cards can be made quickly and they are relatively flat, which is great for mailing!

Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the post and click that Next button when you’re done here to hop along to the next amazing project!

This card features the Forever Fern stamp set, the coordinating Forever Flourishing Dies, the gorgeous Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper, and the beautiful ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack. I absolutely love all the shades of green on this card!

I love doing a “z” style ribbon fold behind my sentiments. I think it adds just the right amount of texture. This ribbon stands out well against the designer series paper layer, and the stripes compliment the fern images nicely.

I achieved the variegated look on my ferns by inking my stamp in a lighter color, and then going over the edges with a sponge dauber and a darker color. This is a great technique to play with!

I finished this card off with a few pearl accents and love how it turned out! It’s so simple and easy to make. Using the beautiful designer series paper really adds some fun to the background.

ISS Blog Hop May 2020 Annual Catalog Sneak Peek

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! I’m so excited to be sharing a sneak peek of the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog with you today! I received my pre-order and wanted to make a card using the Forever Greenery Suite Collection. Come and see what I made and watch my YouTube tutorial to see an unboxing of my pre-order!

We are hopping with the Ink. Stamp. Share. Blog Hop today! Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the post and click that Next button when you’re done here to hop along to the next amazing project!

I wanted to play with this suite collection right away, and there’s no better way to get started than to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) the catalog! I started off with a standard card base in Whisper White. Then I chose a background piece from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper. I noticed on the card in the catalog from page 108 they glued this piece gold side down. As much as I didn’t want to do this, I did it anyway, and I really do love how it turned out!

Next I embossed a piece of Pretty Peacock card stock with one of the embossing folders from the Greenery set. I trimmed it down to a thin 1/2″ banner. I stamped two leaf images in Pear Pizzazz, one full ink, and one without re-inking for a lighter image. This is called second generation stamping. I then stamped four of the rounded leaves/berries in Pretty Peacock using the same method.

I picked out a few more pieces from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper to include in my arrangement. After getting my placement down, I adhered all the small cut pieces using a combination of liquid glue and glue dots. Then I added the banner.

The gold hoop is attached to the back of the sentiment with tear and tape adhesive, then Stampin’ Dimensionals pop it up off the background. I died some of the trim from the Trim Combo pack using my Classic Stampin’ Pad and a Sponge Dauber, and then tied it into a bow to add to the top.

I’m so pleased with how this card turned out! CASEing the catalog when you need some inspiration, or just a quick crafting session is a great way to get started. Check out my YouTube tutorial below for specifics on this card and to see my preorder unboxing!

Leaf Burst with Swirly Bird

There are a lot of things that make me happy, but this card is probably right up there at the top! I absolutely LOVED making this card, it was so much fun watching the “burst” come to life. I used the two leaf stamps from Swirly Bird and a simple sentiment from Thoughtful Banners. Tie it all together with some Black Metallic Thread and Rhinestones and you’ve got yourself a quick and gorgeous card!

This card was so fast and simple that it could have been a Clean & Quick Card, and in the video I show you how to make it just that before stepping it up with the embellishments.

I hope you give this card a try, and discover what stamp sets you might have that would work just as well to create this fun burst! If you’re looking for more inspiration for your Swirly Bird set, why not check out these links: Swirly Bird Frame Card, and Swirly Nest FB Card.
