I took part in a virtual retreat this weekend. With the dreaded virus, the usual in person event had to be cancelled, but instead of missing a year, we chose to take it online instead! I made more projects than I have in months, and had great fun!
One of the best parts of in person Stampin’ Up! events is project swaps, and so we did the same… just sent them in the post instead!
I chose to take part in the Designer Series Paper swap this time, and so had to make cards with paper as the main focus.
This card was really simple to put together, but looks really complicated. I cut the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to 14.8 x 13.5 cm, so it was the same height as my card base, but a little wider. Then scored the paper on the right hand side at 3cm, and folded it back and put a spot of adhesive where I was going to add my sentiment label.
The card is finished with a die cut leaf from the Forever Flourishing dies, a label from the Painted Labels dies, and sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set.
Hi! Welcome to StampinByHannah and the Pootlers Team Blog Hop! I hope that you enjoy your trip around the team’s blogs today and get LOTS of inspiration for all those new goodies in the Brand New Stampin’ Up! Annual catalogue!
When I saw this suite in the new catalogue, I fell in LOVE. I am not usually a very ‘green’ person, I prefer a purple, or blue, but there is just something about the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper that I couldn’t say no to!
This card came together pretty quickly, for all it looks complicated. I had been randomly stamping leaves, and had quite a collection layered on my desk. I moved them from my desk to on top of this stripey strip of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper, and added some of the gold leaves from the Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty paper.
With such a busy panel on the left hand side, a simple ‘Hello’ sentiment was perfect for the bottom right hand corner as a finish.
