NC Stampin' Up Demos June Blog Hop

Welcome to the June NC SU Demos Blog Hop! You probably just came from the blog of Tracy Lewis.  Wasn't her card great? And what a coincidence that she used the same set that I did.

Since June is a month for weddings, our theme is something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. I made a center step card with the Forever Fern stamp set and Forever Flourishing Dies which are available individually or as a bundle. The colors, the Basic Pearls, my Stampin' Blends marker, and the sentiment from Good Morning Magnolia are old. The Forever Fern bundle is new. I borrowed the bundle my friend Corothy. Thanks Corothy! And I used Pretty Peacock for my blue.


I used sponge daubers on the stamps to get the multi-colored look. All of the other pieces are die cut out of solid colored cardstock. The Basic Pearls were colored with a Stampin' Blends marker. This is a great way to get pearls in different colors.

Colors: Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, Merry Merlot, Old Olive, Pretty Peacock, and Whisper White

Here's another shot from before the Basic Pearls were added. It gives you a better idea how the folds go.


Here is the inspiration for my card. I have several packs of these Gift Of Fall Add On Bundles and I don't have the stamps from the original Paper Pumpkin. I did have the kit but one of my customers didn't order it and really wanted it so I let her have mine with the agreement I could borrow the stamps to complete my Add On pack. I did at the time, but then they went on the Clearance List and I bought more. When I saw Forever Fern, I knew it would go great with these cards. I've made several designs, which I'll share in a later post, but this particular card inspired me to make today's center fold card. By the way, these are still available on the Clearance List.



Thanks for stopping by this month's blog hop. You can continue on through the hop by visiting Tracie Evans Langley's blog next. I know she'll have a fantastic project for you.
