Stampin’ Up!® Forever Fern Rubber Band Background Get Well Card

Welcome to my Wacky Wednesday Technique. This Stampin’ Up!® Forever Fern card is really wacky because it is made using rubber bands around a clear block. The things we will do to make a creative background!

I will be using 2 stamp sets today. The Forever Fern stamp set has a lot of great leaf images. The So Sentimental is one of my all time favorites. Sadly it will be retiring. It is only available while supplies last so order yours HERE before it runs out.

Measurements

Measurements: Granny Apple Green Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; Very Vanilla CS: 4 x 5 1/2 inches and 3 x 4 inches; and Shimmery White CS: 3 3/4 x 5 inches.

Stamping

Let’s start stamping! Stamp the sentiment “Sending Healing Hugs” onto the 3 x 4 inch Very Vanilla CS with the Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Use you Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and the Stitched So Sweetly dies to cut out the sentiment. Fortunately, the Stitched So Sweetly Dies are not on the retiring list!

Rubber band Background in Daffodil Delight

In order to try this technique you will need rubber bands of various thicknesses. Wrap the rubber band around an E size Clear Block in a random pattern.

For this step I used Daffodil Delight ink. Use the ink pad to apply ink to the rubber bands. Flip the clear block over onto the 3 3/4 x 5 inch Shimmery White CS.

Remove the clear block and see what you have. I think I would have needed to apply more ink. You can rotate the Shimmery White CS, apply more ink to the rubber bands, and stamp down on the Shimmery White again. I stamped once on the upper half and once on the bottom half.

Next I sprayed my rubber band background with a little water to make it bleed into the paper a little.

While the paper is still damp, use the Granny Apple Green ink and the large leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set to stamp some leaves around the edges.

Stamp some more of the leaves onto edges of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Very Vanilla CS. This will be the inside of the card. I Stamped Off once on the smaller leaf image before stamping onto the Very Vanilla CS.

Rubber band background in Granny Apple Green

I decided the background needed a little more added to it so I inked up the rubber band block with the Granny Apple Green ink and added more to the stamped background.

I also sprayed it with a little water again and then used a paper towel to dab it dry.

Open the Granny Apple Green CS card base and adhere the inside of the card to the inside of the card base.

Use the Bone Folder to fold the card base. Next adhere the Rubber Band Background card piece to the card front.

Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the background.

Bling!

The Artistry Blooms Self Adhesive Sequins are perfect to add some Bling! to this card! I use the Take Your Pick tool to easily move the sequins from the acetate sheet to the card front.

Viola! You have made a totally wacky Rubber Band Background for this get well card!

Kylie’s Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop- February 2021-Thank You Cards with So Sentimental

Thank you!

Thank you for joining me for our Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Monthly Team Blog Hop! I am so excited that you could join us today! I know you will get lots of ideas and creative inspiration! My thank you cards are made with the So Sentimental stamp set. Be sure to visit all the different blogs and see all the different stamp sets and dies that will be used.

I belong to a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the world that are taking part in training that is helping us to build a successful Stampin’ Up!® business. I am a Demonstrator in Arizona, USA. If you are not already an awesome Demonstrator, or do not have an awesome Demonstrator and live in the USA, I would love to be your most awesome Demonstrator! I really appreciate your support.

The theme for the cards today is: Thank You. I have many customers who support me and I like to send them a Thank You card every once in awhile. The following set of cards is for my fabulous customers which I will be sending to anyone who orders during the month of February.

The Thank You Cards

I made a whole set of Thank You cards using an Embossing Folder (EF) to emboss the first layer. For the second layer I cut the Flowers & Field Designer Series Paper (DSP) which you can get for FREE with a qualifying order during Sale-a-bration (January 5 – February 28, 2021) and adhered it to the first layer. The sentiment is made using the “I can’t Thank You enough” from So Sentimental and the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. The first layer of this card is made with the Meadow Moments EF and Cherry Cobbler Card Stock CS).

The measurements for the embossed layer are 4 x 5 1/4 inches. The second layer which is the Flower & Field DSP is 3 x 4 inches. The sentiment piece is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. This card has the non-floral side of the DSP showing. The Flirty Flamingo CS layer is embossed with the Absolutely Argyle EF.

For this card I used the Seabed 3D EF on Just Jade CS.

All Together!

I have a whole bunch of different combinations of DSP and CS colors!

The theme for the cards today is: Thank You. I have many customers who support me and I like to send out a Thank You card every once in awhile. The following set of cards is for my awesome customers.

I must admit that I was not a fan of any plaid. However, I really like the plaid in the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper. I used the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder to make the Whisper White card stock background.

Tip for arthritic hands: I have a difficult time with the Stampin’ Dimensionals due to mobility problems from arthritic changes in my fingers. I found that if I cut the Foam Adhesive Sheets into 1/4 inch strips I can use them on the back of labels and such. This is so much easier to peel off than those hexagonal Dimensionals!

The sentiment “I Can’t Thank You Enough” is from the So Sentimental stamp set. The dies are from Stitched So Sweetly. I hand-colored the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon to match the color of the card stock. Be sure to heat set, otherwise you get very inky fingers!

I have the cards open in two different ways to add variety to the Thank You notes.

“I can’t thank you enough” for stopping by today.
