Stampin Up Friends Never Fade and Greenhouse Gala


Sneak Peek Alert!

As a Stampin’ up! demonstrator, I can pre-order select products from the 2010-2011 New Idea Book & Catalogue that will be available in just a couple of weeks. 

These two cards showcase one of the new stamps set called Friends Never Fade and a coordinating designer series paper, Greenhouse Gala. Although the layouts are the same for both cards and I used the same stamp set and paper, the finished cards are so different. Scroll down to see a closer view of each card and a few more details.

So, which is your favourite? Please leave a comment and let me know.

Friends Never Fade Stamp Set


My husband said this card reminded him of Wedgwood. 

Using only one colour, Baja Breeze, I choose a designer series paper from Greenhouse Gala that repeats the design of the Friends Never Fade stamp. I love how Stampin’ Up! matches their products. Does Baja Breeze looks familiar to you? This was an In Color a couple of years ago now returning to the Subtles Collection of colours. 

I used Whisper White grosgrain ribbon and brads to add a few more details to this card.  

The new Big Shot embossing folder I used behind the strip of paper is called Vintage Wallpaper. You will definitley want to add this folder to your collection.

Friends Never Fade Stamp Set


This card has a much brighter feel to it.

The colours used here are Daffodil Delightful, Pear Pizzazz and Pumpkin Pie.  And did you notice the new 1/8" Taffeta ribbon in Daffodil Delight?

Using another image from Friends Never Fade stamped in Daffodil Delight ink and a more colourful pattern from the Greenhouse Gala designer series paper really makes this card stand out.
