Simply Sunday: Creating with Scraps & Punches!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Since we’ve been working with Designer Paper pieces/scraps, banners and simple layouts lately, I have a lovely card created with the Forever Greenery Designer Paper. I am thrilled to share today’s card with you … it turned out so pretty!

I started out with 3 strips of the Forever Greenery Designer Series paper, these were leftovers from cutting my Stampin’ Club cards. The designer paper made it easy to decide my color theme: Garden Green and Soft Sea Foam! The Garden Green was used as a mat for the designer paper, and the Soft Sea Foam was the base of my card.

Once I laid out the designer paper, I knew I was going to use the Medium Daisy punch but I needed to add a greeting … this I would create with the Triple Banner Punch in my color scheme. The sentiment comes from the Seaside View stamp set. I showcased this stamp set on June 14th … Click Here to view.

I wanted something inside my Daisy so I chose the Gold Glitter Dots …

The glimmer dots were not as big as I thought, but they worked … however my sentiment and banner were a little big for one little daisy so I added two small flowers from the Small Bloom Punch. I added one more embellishment to tie everything together … and it took the whole card to the next level!! Let me introduce you to the new Gold Hoop Embellishments!

Don’t you agree? The simple Gold Hoop brings together the flowers, the sentiment and helps create a focal point the makes the designer paper shine!

Simple … and easy to make does not mean your card has to be plain. Remember, this just started with a couple of pieces of leftover designer paper.

Thank you for hanging out with me this Sunday. I hope you have an amazing day!! Meet me back here tomorrow … I have more new goodies!

Forever Fern Fun Fold Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’ve got another new card to share with you from the Forever Greenery Suite … I just can’t stop using this suite! It is so versatile and can be used for any occasion.

The Forever Greenery Suite Collection by Stampin’ Up! features watercolor patterns and images in a glorious array of green hues. Today’s card is a fun fold and super easy to recreate… and cute!

This Triangle Fun Fold works great for showing off your designer series paper. With a few simple cuts your card is over half way done. You can add layers if you prefer and some additional embellishments to “jack it up” even more. And when you open it ….

The simplicity of this card makes it easy to whip out many at a time … hmmm, a consideration for my Christmas cards! And they are fun to open.

I have another awesome fun fold card using this suite that I will be sharing on Monday so make sure you stop by. PLUS … when you purchase this suite or bundle through me (anything over $50 before ship/tax) I will send you the full color PDF with step by step instructions for today’s & Monday’s cards.

I’ll share more about today’s card and introduce you to the Double Triangle Fold card on Monday. This card has a real “twist” to it!!!

Thanks for stopping in today, hope yours is a good one.
