Stampin’ Up! Forever Gold Specialty DSP, Note cards and Envelopes

Today is TGIF day! Woohoo! For me, it doesn’t matter for everything has changed. Early this morning hubby had a Zoom meeting for Kiwanis. It seems the way we define what day it is, is by the zoom obligations… odd, right? While he was participating in his ZOOM meeting, I created this quick and easy card. I love this new In Color – Magenta Madness… ๐Ÿ˜

Forever Gold SDSP, Notecards & envelopes

Made with SU! Notecards and Envelopes, new In Color Magenta Madness (new and available to customers Jun 3) cut to 3 3/8 x 4 7/8, Forever Gold Specialty DSP (new and available to customers Jun 3), Whisper White for the sentiment panel, Greenery Embossing Folder (new and available to customers Jun 3), Tasteful Touches stamp set (new and yes! available to customers Jun 3) for both the sentiment and the sprig. I used Pretty Peacock for stamping.


  • The white decorated piece that covers most of the Magenta Madness is one of the gorgeous foils in the Forever Gold Specialty DSP. And yes, it is gold on the other side. Adhere with liquid glue to the Magenta Madness cs, then adhere this to the note card with more liquid glue.
  • The next layer is another of the papers in the Forever Gold Specialty DSP. To give it strength to put on dimensionals, I adhered some card stock to the back, then adhered the piece to the front of the card with dimesnionals.
  • Stamp your sentiment using Pretty Peacock ink (here I used Night of Navy) and the Many Mates stamp set (new and available to customers Jun 3).Cut that sentiment with a circle from the Tasteful Labels Dies (new and available to customers Jun 3) out of Whisper White. Adhere with dimensionals.
  • Stamp the inside with the leaf spray from Tasteful Touches stamp set using Pretty Peacock.
  • Stamp the envelope with the same spray.
  • Run the Magenta Madness through your embossing machine using the NEWย  Greenery Embossing Folder (yep! new and available to customers Jun 3). Be sure to spritz the paper lightly with water to get a really nice dry embossing. Isn’t this leaf imprint gorgeous!

Your card is complete and ready to mail. This card is being sent today as a sympathy card. Although the Magenta Madness is bright, it is softened with the overlay of the Foil paper. It still comes across as elegant and prepared with loving care.

May you have a beautiful day.

Stampin’ Up! Birds and Branches with matching Dies

Hi Folks! Guess what I received in the mail today… my NEW 2020-2021 ANNUAL CATALOGUE!ย  Woohoo!!! Oh my, so many special new products that I think you are going to love…

NEW 2020-2021 Annual Catalog

Today’s card is made using the brand new Birds and Branches stamp set, the matching Birds and More Dies, Lovely Joy stamp set and Field of Flowers stamp set and the new Just Jade 2020-2021 In Color. Let’s take a peek…

Birds & Branches stamp set w/ matching dies #1

This was fun using so many new products to make this card – got me all fired up!

  • Use the diecut for the inset from Birds and More dies to do this gorgeous green piece. The green is one of the new In Colors – Just Jade, kind of a blue-green, wonderful shade.
  • Using a sponge dauber, highlight just the leaves/ branches with Shaded Spruce.
  • Color the berries with Real Red Stampin’ Blends, then add sparkle with your Wink of Stella.
  • Using the Stitched Shapes largest circle die, cut the front of a Whisper White panel. Emboss it with the new Tasteful Texture 3D embossing folder. Adhere the Just Jade diecut to the backside of this panel using liquid glue.
  • Cut a length of ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and angle the ends as shown.
  • Run snail across the middle portion of the ribbon and wind the Aย in loops as shown.
  • Die cut the banner from the new Tasteful Labels Dies in Sahara Sand. This banner has the same wonderful stitches around it as so many of the stitches dies :o). Adhere to the ribbon with dimensionals
  • Lay this on the card front and make note of where to stamp the bird and branch. I used my Stamparatus to do this so it was easy to position the bird in the proper place. I then removed the panel, stamped the more solid bird stamp in stamped off Sahara Sand, then stamped the detail bird portion in So Saffron full strength. Stamp the feet in Black Memento ink. Then stamp the branch in Early Espresso.
  • With dimensionals, adhere the panel over this and your card front is complete! Here’s a close-up of the inset and bird.

For the inside…

Lovely Day, Field of Flowers stamp sets #2
  • Cut a piece of Just Jade 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 and adhere to the inside with liquid glue.
  • Stamp your sentiment in Sahara Sand on a Whisper White panel – it’s from the new Lovely Day stamp set and the fonts are gorgeous.
  • With Garden Green ink, stamp the border from the new Field of Flowers stamp set. Adhere over the Just Jade panel and your card is complete!

For the envelope…

  • Cut a piece of Just Jade (new In Color) and run it through the Tasteful Textures 3D Embossing Folder. Adhere to the envelope flap with liquid glue and trim. Done, done, done!

I love everything about this bird… it looks as though he is outside singing his heart out!
