A Cinnamon Cider Fern

Hello!  I just had to share this project which features the Forever Fern Bundle.  I have shared quiet a few projects using the entire Forever Greenery Product suite but in the suites color pallet which includes; Old Olive, Garden Green, Just Jade, Pear Pizzazz and more!    

The detail of the Forever Fern stamps, it's a Distinctive set, are just beautiful so I decided to change up the colors for the fall.  Here I have used the 2020-2022 In-Color Cinnamon Cider along with Merry Merlot and Crumb Cake.   I hope this card inspires you to try out different color combinations with your stamps!

SAVI Sunday - Episode 35 Using DSP Scraps

Hey everyone!  Hope you are well.  I got to spend some time with my nieces and nephew today, which was great.  It was a couple of weeks since I had seen them and the two little ones were so excited to see Auntie.  We played on the swing set, and made fake Smores (bark for graham crackers, rocks for marshmallows, and fallen acorns for the chocolate).  They picked sticks and we took colorful fall leaves rolled up, then poked through our sticks to make our fake fire...LOL!  It was great to see them use such imagination.  I loved every minute of it. 

Any ways, so I am posting a little late Sunday night for my Savi Sunday but I'm here.  Tonight I am showing two projects using Designer Series Paper that is included in the DSP Sale (ending October 31, 2020).

I think Arrange A Wreath has been a go to set for me. Even though when you first look at the Bundle, one might think its all going to look the same, but you can really customize for many looks and occasions.

    • score large piece at 4-1/4 to make card base
    • die cut 3 flowers with 1-1/2" squares
  • DSP from In Good Taste cut to 4 x 5-1/4
    • adhere to card base
  • Wreath pieces from Garden Green & Granny Apple Green CS. 4 x 4" piece of each color
    • cut berry wreath in Garden Green & adhere on top of DSP
    • cut leaf wreath in Granny Apple Green & adhere on top of Garden Green
    • adhere the 3 flowers
  • Three Crumb Cake scraps about 1 x 1
    • stamp 3 flower centers in Early Espresso
    • die cut and adhere to center of flowers
  • Whisper White CS 2 x 3.
    • stamp sign with Early Espresso BUT ink stamp, stamp on scrap paper then onto Whisper White

BeeBlogHopOpeningIcon

Welcome to our TEAM Blog Hop!  Our theme for September is Fall.  

I am excited as fall is my favorite time of the year.  The fresh, crisp air; warm and sunny days; and cool nights, not too mention the beautiful colors of changing leaves.  And I wouldn't dare leave out my ultimate favorite part, Pumpkin Spice Lattes.  Mmmmm.... I can hardly wait!

So what is your favorite season?

If you like fall too, you are going to love this card featuring the Plaid Tidings 6x6 Designer Series Paper Stack.  Stampin' Up! did such a great job in the plaid patterns and the color combinations.  Speaking of colors, there are at least sixteen, yes, 16 different Stampin' Up! colors featured with this paper, which I think makes it versatile for more than just fall.

Life Is Beautiful Stamp Set

Hi there.  

Life is Beautiful... what a great name for a stamp set.  I think it is quiet a fitting reminder for today, well, really for this year.  I feel we need to be reminded during these trying time that life is beautiful, we just need to see it.  

I just love this card and all the colors.  I participated in a Team card challenge and this submission was made by a fellow Demonstrator, Mary Ann Rositer.  I love how she lets the Pretty Peacock card base remain as much a part of the focal color as the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper.  Very nice job.  

PicsArt_08-31-12.42.19

Now, because I only receive a photo of all the card challenge submissions, I do not have the card in front of me.  I am going to take a guess at the basic sizes of what she cut.

  • Pretty Peacock card base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 scored at 4-1/4 on the long side.
  • DSP 3 x 4
  • Gold Foil 3-1/8 x 4-1/8
  • Whisper White for tree, 3-3/4 x 2-1/2
  • Pretty Peacock CS mat, 3-7/8 x 2-3/8
  • then you need Whisper White piece for the words and label die

Here is imagery from Stampin' Up! showing a few more examples.  You can click on the photo to bring up larger.
