Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely Z-Fold card

Hello Creative Friends!

I have a pretty and simple card to share with you today. I chose to add no sentiment to this card but so I could use it for various occasions. It has little Valentines Day flair so I might just add a Happy Valentines Day sentiment to the inside!

To make this card I started with a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 size card base in Lovely Lipstick card stock. I then folded the card in half (or it could be scored at 4 1/4 and then folded). To make the front z-fold you simple fold the front flap in half backwards. If you prefer you could score the front flap at 2 1/8 longways and then fold it backwards. This gives you the the front z fold to allow you to add the panel with the stamped image. The panel was made with Soft Sea Foam cut to 3 1/4 x 4 1/2. The Whisper White with the stamped image is cut to 3 x 4-1/4 . I used the Forever Lovely stamp set for all the images on the card. This beautiful stamp set is part of the DistINKtive stamps offered by Stampin’ Up! so they are etched to show wonderful detail. I used Lovely Lipstick ink to stamp the flowers and Soft Seafoam to stamp the leaves. I used the Lovely Flowers Edgelits dies to cut out the single flower and accompanying leaves. The ribbon is part of the All My Love Ribbon pack. This includes the Lovely Lipstick ribbon I used and a skinny Flirty Flamingo ribbon. I added some of the All My Love Designer Series Paper to the front flap of my z-fold. Once I had the front panel assembled I adhered it the card adding adhesive to the left side only. That is all there is to it!

Are you busy getting cards finished for Valentines day? The stamp set and dies used to make this card would be great for this occasion! Heading to my website to grab these great items by clicking here.

Stampin’ Up! 2019 Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek – Forever Lovely Stamp Set!

Are you ready for another Sneak Peek from the Occasions Catalog? Check out this beautiful new card I made with the Forever Lovely stamp set!

Not only is this card beautiful, but it was simple! This is really just stamps, ink and paper but it still really has something that catches your eye. All of the stamps I used are from one of the new stamps sets that will be available in the Occasions Catalog as of January 3, 2019. One really nice thing about this set is that it is part of the disINKtive stamp sets. Have you heard of this yet? Distinktive stamps create different opacities in a single stamped image for realistic depth and intensity. It is really cool as it looks like multiple layers of stamps were used, but really it is all one stamp! To stamp the Flowers I used Lovely Lipstick Ink and one stamp. Then to stamp the leaves it was another stamp using Shaded Spruce ink. You can see the variation in how the ink stamps on the paper. The disINKtive stamps really make beautiful stamping easy! All the stamps used on this card are from the same stamp set – Forever Lovely. I did also add in wink of stella around the flower outline. It does not show up well in the photo, but it is a very pretty addition!

There is another sneak peak on this card that is part of the Sale-A-Bration brochure. See that gorgeous shiny foil paper? That was FREE with my 50 dollar purchase! The color shown here is Lovely Lipstick but it comes in a pack with Grapefruit Grove as well. How can you beat beautiful and free?

I hope this gets you excited for all the wonderful new items that will soon be available. Remember, if you need a catalog let me know and I will get one sent to you!!

Happy Crafting!
