Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Sympathy Card-how to make a card from a sketch

Hello! Hope your day is going well. I am playing with the new Eden’s Garden Collection which will be available on November 3, 2021.

Often I have a hard time coming up with an idea for a card. Quite a while ago, I started to make sketches of the cards I received on a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch Basic White cardstock. When I am stumped, I look through the sketch cards. Today I am going to share the sketch and the card I created from it.

This is the sympathy card I created with the Eden’s Garden Collection using the sketch. I especially love the Ever Eden Designer Series Paper (DSP) with the gold foil accents. Fabulous!

The Sketch

Here are the sketch and the finished card side by side.

Supplies

Card base: Evening Evergreen Card Stock (CS) 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches

1st Layer: Gold Foil 5 1/4 x 4 inches

Ever Eden DSP: two at 5 x 1 3/4 inches

Top Layer: Basic White CS 3 1/2 x 2 3/4 inches and Evening Evergreen CS 3 5/8 x 2 7/8 inches.

Stamping

I stamped the floral image several times, first in Evening Evergreen ink and then in Soft Succulent ink. I liked the Soft Succulent flower with the Evening Evergreen sentiment on the bottom (bottom right).

Putting It All Together

The first step is to adhere the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Gold Foil to the Evening Evergreen CS card base. (Tip: A little trick I learned to save my Gold Foil is to use dies to cut out shapes before covering it up. The sprigs are for another card.) Next adhere the two pieces of the Ever Eden DSP.

Finish the card front by adhering the stamped Basic White CS to the Evening Evergreen CS. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere this to the card front. I added some of the Garden Gems around the flowers. Next, I stamped a 5 1/4 x 4 inch Basic White CS with the sentiment on the right and framed it with the little sprig for the inside of the card.

Voila! You have a beautiful sympathy card.

Bruno and Kylie Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop- October 2021 Mystery Stamping Thank You Card*

I have an exciting card to share for Bruno and Kylie’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop today that was a Mystery Stamping I participated in. I will explain more about that in a minute.

Thank you for joining me today for our Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Blog Hop! The Demonstrator Training Program is for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators all over the world who are working towards bettering their business. Be sure to visit all the blogs and see all the different Thank You cards from around the world! I know you will get lots of ideas and creative inspiration! If you wish to become a Stampin’ up! Demonstrator please let me know by commenting on this post or sending me an email at theresastreasures.az@gmail.com Now for the card:

Mystery Stamping is when you are given the measurements for the pieces and then you get “clues” on how to put the card together without knowing what the card looks like. So fun!!

*This card is compliments of Lorraine Masters-Green, who I believe got the idea from Sharon Armstrong.

Clue #1 Card Recipe & Supplies:

1. Colored Card Stock (CS) Color A (ex. Misty Moonlight): 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches with a score at 4 1/4 inches, 4 x 5 1/4 inches, and 2 1/8 x 2 1/8 inches.

2. Colored CS Color B (ex. Just Jade): 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches

3. Basic White CS: 3 1/4 inches x 3 1/4 inches, and a scrap for the sentiment and image.

4. Designer Series Paper (DSP): 5 coordinating pieces 1 x 1 inch (can be different or 2 of one pattern and 3 of another). My DSP is from the Pattern Party DSP in the Annual Catalog.

5. Sentiment stamp and punch or die to cut it out.

6. Image stamp or dies to cut an image from DSP to fit on 2 1/8 x 2 1/8 inch Color A CS piece. I used Simply Succulents for my image and my sentiment.

7. Ink, embossing folder, adhesive, dimensionals. and embellishments.

Clue # 2- The card is in a portrait orientation.

The remaining clues are the directions on how to put the pieces together. The fun part is that you don’t know what the card is supposed to look like until you are done! It is a blast!

If you need the remaining clues for this card, just leave a comment or send me an email and I will send them to you.

Voila! After you follow all of the clues you have a fun Thank You card. Since I had so much fun making this card, I decided to use it as a thank you note to my September customers.

I am Theresa and I am a Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator in Arizona, USA. If you do not have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, live in the US, and would like a copy of the catalog, please send a request to my email: theresastreasures.az@gmail.com. I would love to help you get started on stamping and making you own cards!

Making the card-Stamping

The first step in making this card is to stamp all of the leaves from the Love of Leaves stamp set onto Basic White Card Stock (CS). The Stampin’ Up! ink colors for the leaves are: Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody and Cajun Craze. Next stamp the flowers from the Color & Contour stamp set onto Basic White CS. The outline of the flowers is inked in Cajun Craze. The flower color is Mango Melody.

Coordinating Dies

Now you can use the coordinating dies for the Love of Leaves stamp set- the Stitched Leaves Dies. These dies both cut and emboss! You can see the embossed stitching on each of the leaves. The upper edge of the background is embossed with one of the dies in this set.

To make the flowers more 3D, I used the round end of the cap on the Take Your Pick Tool to apply gentle pressure to the back of the flowers. This makes them more puffy.

Arranging the Pieces

Now that you have all the pieces, you can arrange them how you like. First adhere the Mango Melody background onto a Cajun Craze CS card base. Lay the leaves down on the card front first until you like the look. Then add the flowers. Next, adhere everything in place. Add the Genial Gems as desired to the flower center for extra sparkle.

The sentiment is stamped in Cajun Craze ink onto a 1/2 inch Basic White CS strip. Add the sentiment to your card.

Voila! You have a beautiful fall Thank You card! Feel free to decorate the inside of the card too!
