*Exclusivity to the video on YouTube will be 6 weeks, I then reserve the right to change to a public video. This will allow me to grow my YouTube online presence.

*I reserve the right to substitute items if absolutely necessary. This would be due to a shortage of items from Stampin’ Up!

*Per Stampin’ Up! Compliance I am unable to stamp and images in your kits. So Stamp Sets must be purchased if you wish to create your cards exactly like mine. Of course many times you can easily substitute your own stamps and inks etc. So feel free to purchase a smaller priced class or just PDF & Card Kits.

*For the Blueberry card. You will not be able to create this card without purchasing the FULL bundle due to the stamp set is a free Sale A Bration item. If you purchase a smaller priced option I can substitute the papers to make it work with the Sweet Strawberry stamp set.

Thank you for considering my classes. I just want to offer creativity even during the Pandemic. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. I will be happy to assist you.

Happy Stampin’

Wednesday Sketch ~ Forever Fern Stamp Set

Thank you for following my brand new series of Wednesday Sketch with me, Melanie Smith!!! I am playing with the Forever Fern stamp set today by Stampin’ Up! I have combined it with many of the Stampin’ Up! die sets which fit perfectly with today’s sketch.

Do you ever struggle with card design? Using a card sketch can be a valuable tool and really can get your mojo working. This sketch is a unusual shape compared to the normal A2 card size that most demonstrators use. (4.25×5.5″) My cards below measures 5″ square.

The Forever Fern Bundle (#154094) is probably the most versatile suite in the 2020/2021 Annual Catalog. It is perfect for every occasion. I have used it in numerous cards and will continue to. If you have not checked it out yet make sure to check the supply list at the bottom of this post.

I have used numerous other items in this first card. 4 different die sets by Stampin’ Up! including the Layering Circles (#151770), Layering Squares (#151772), Stitched Shapes (#152323) and the Stitched Rectangles (#151820). I probably wouldn’t of normally used this many, but since I was following the sketch It just happened! The “In Good Taste” Designer Series Paper” (#152494) which is a 24 sheet pack of double sided paper is a must have. Last but not least I have embellished this card using the 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon (#150446) and the Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems from the holiday catalog (#153547)

This second sample has used a mixture of the same die sets as the first sample. For the background I embossed it with the Tin Tile 3D embossing folder (#151801) The sentiment is stamped from the Daisy Lane Stamp Set (#149325). The papers include “Flowers for Every Season 6×6” (#152486)  and “In Color 6×6” paper (#153070). Last but not least I finished this card off by adding Enamel Dots (#152480) along with the coordinating Magenta Madness ribbon (#153623)
