Stampin' Up! Forever Greenery Appreciation Card

Hi stampers.

Today I want to show you a card I made for some of my team who recently attended a Stampin' Up! Leadership event. I used Forever Greenery product suite (Forever Fern 10% off Bundle is a part of this) to make this card to show my appreciation. I have also used the lovely In Good Taste Elements which are wood embellishments for cards and crapbooking. Later in my post I will talk about how to use these.

This would be a great card for friends, co-workers, team members or anyone  you wanted to show appreciation towards.

It's a very simple patterned paper background layer using the beautiful Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper Pack (12 double sided sheets 12x12", with 2 each of 6 designs). There's a wide range of designs included, and I have used a small strip of a more busy pttern, with a larger piece of one of the smaller patterned images. This paper is on special for 15% off until 31st October 2020.

I love the gorgeous plant and leaves imagery on this paper, and it coordinates with some of my favourite Stampin' Up! colours. This paper coordinates with Garden Green, Soft Sea Foam, Pretty Peacock, Pear Pizazz, Just Jade and Shaded Spruce.

How to Use Wooden Embellishments On Your Cards

The wooden embellishments from In Good Taste Elements, really add extra wow and texture to this card. To use these wooden embellishments:

  1. Tuck them under sentiment labels and attach with a glue dot (these adhesives are great for heavier embellishments).
  2. You could also coloir them with ink or acylic paint to coordinate with your project if you are not looking for the natural look
  3. Dip them in Versamark and embossing power and heat with a heat gun for an embossed look.

Watercoloured Poinsettia 2020 Slimline Christmas Card using Stampin Up Poinsettia Petals

Hello crafty friends. Today I have another slimline card for you, a 2020 Christmas card using Stampin' Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle from the 2020 Stampin' Up! August to December Mini Catalogue. The whole Poinsettia Place Suite is so pretty!

Stampin Up Watercoloured Poinsettia Petals 2020 Christmas Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

For my card, I started with a 21cm x 10cm slimline Crumb Cake card base and I added a layer of the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper. This has a luscious flocked design on vellum and is so pretty, plus adds great texture. I've added more texture by looping some Braided Linen Trim below where I planned for my flower and greeting to go.

Stampin Up slimline Poinsettia Petals 2020 Christmas Card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

To create my flower, I gold embossed the three different sized poinsettia's from the Poinsettia Petal stamp set onto Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper (links below). I then spritzed with water and used then added watery ink from the lid of my ink pad (created this by dropping a couple of drops of water into the ink residue in the lid - just make sure you wipe with a paper towel when finished so you don't dilute your ink pad). Becuae the watercolor paper is wet, the colour quickly spreads and you get a random distribution of the colour. I love this messy watercolour look. I used tw colours on the flower, Real Red and Cherry Cobbler.

I layered these together with a Dimensional between each layer and the gorgeous Beaded Pearls (links below) as the flower centre.

Here's a closer look at the gorgeous Beaded Pearl flower centres. You get 18 pieces in a pack and they are approximately 1.3cm wide.

Slimline cards are fun to make. There's a little more real estate to play with, but don't let that scare you.

Back with a birthday card today, using the beautiful Prized Peony stamp set coloured with Stampin' Blends.

Stampin Up Prized Peony Coloured with Stampin Blends by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. 2020 Annual Catalogue

I didn't catch the light terribly well onto the card front on the full photo, so this one is probably a better indication of true colour.

I have use Purple Posy and Highland Heather combos for my Stampin' Blends colours and Crumb Cake for my base card and layers. Isn't that Dainty Diamonds embossing folder pretty?

I've also made a YouTube video to show you how I went about colouring the Peony. I hope you like it!

Stampin' Up! Prized Peony coloured with Stampin' Blends.

Hello stampers. Today I have a Prized Peony coloured with Stampin' Blends for you. I am loving colouring the images in this beautiful stamp set from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

Stampin Up Prized Peony stamp set coloured with Stampin' Blends. Dainty Diamonds and Subtle 3D embossing folder. 2020 card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I wanted to keep my background quite neutral, so I have just used Crumb Cake cardstock. To create a bit more interest, I have used two different embossing folders. I have used the Subtle 3D folder on the first layer, and on the layer I have cut using the Stitched So Sweetly dies, I have used the Dainty Diamonds 3D folder. You can view or purchase these products in my online Stampin' Up! store in Australia, using the links at the end of this post.

Stampin Up Prized Peony stamp set coloured with Stampin' Blends. Dainty Diamonds and Subtle 3D embossing folder. 2020 card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I have coloured the image with Stampin' Blends. I recently did a video showing how to colour the smaller Prized Peony, and used the same colouring technique here. Here's a look at that video in case it's helpful. The colours I have used are Purple Posy Stampin' Blends combo, Highland Heather Stampin' Blends combo and Old Olive Stampin' Blends combo.

To finish my card off, I have used a greeting from Well Written stamp set, which is stamped in Crumb Cake and cut out using the Stitched Nested Labels dies. I tied some linen thread around the flower stem, and placed some Elegant Faceted Gems around the flower. It's so hard to see in this picture, but I also used some Wink of Stella to add to the lowlights (dark shaded areas) on the flower. I love how that turned out.
