Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop April 2021 – Forever Greenery Triple Diagonals
- Thank you for joining Kylie and Bruno Bertucci’s Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Training Program Monthly Team Blog Hop for April 2021!
- Whether you started with my site for Kelley Pitts at CreateWithKelley.com or you started with another demonstrator, you can easily hop to all the other demonstrator sites at the bottom of this post.
- We are so happy that you could join this month’s blog hop for ideas and creative inspiration.
- We are a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the world who are taking part in a training program to help us to build a successful Stampin’ Up!® business and reach some goals we have set.
- We really appreciate your support.
- My customers placing orders this month will receive a card or card kit like the following as a Thank You!
Choose any 3 DSPs that coordinate well with each other and you can create 3 beautiful cards in a snap!
- Thanks to Mary Knabe with Stampin’ Peace for showing me this card layout that looks totally different based on the DSP, mats and cardstock bases you choose.
- I did a Facebook Live video with these cards on 4/7/21 that you can watch at https://www.facebook.com/CreateWithKelley.
- (You can also check out Mary Knabe’s beautiful options and a video tutorial with different DSP on her blog at https://stampinpeace.typepad.com/stampin_peace/.)
- Stampin’ Up!®’s incredibly beautiful Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper (DSP) is one of my favorites and will be retiring soon, but you can easily substitute your new favorites.
- You’ll just stack 3 pieces of coordinating DSP, cut them to 3 3/4″ x 5″, then make 2 diagonal cuts per instructions below. Add them to a mat and card base with embellishments, and Voila’! You’ll create 3 similar cards with each piece of DSP in a different position on each card. Great for beginners, intermediate and avid stampers since it is beautiful with just a greeting, but can easily be stepped up based on crafting skills and supplies onhand.
This simple card can be created easily by a beginner. Two optional stepped up cards plus instructions are below.
If you’d like to step up your card a little, simply change the ribbon and add an embellishment.
The Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty Paper creates lots of gorgeous optional embellishments.
Changing out the ribbon and adding the gold lasercut totally changes the look!
Forever Flourishing dies and woven trim add beautiful touches.
As you can see, playing with various DSP, colors, greetings and embellishments can change the personality of each card. Plus it’s easy to make multiple sets of cards at one time….great for your own stash or in a coordinating box as a gift.
You’ll find more of my cardmaking details underneath the following Blog Hop list.

Full Blog Hop List:
- 3 pieces Forever Greenery DSP 3 3/4″ x 5″, each cut into thirds per instructions below
- 3 card stock bases 4 1/4″ x 11″ that coordinate with the DSP (see product list), scored at 5 1/2″
- 3 mats 4″ x 5 1/4″ that coordinate with the DSP and card stock base
- 2 1/4″ circle from coordinating card stock
- 2″ circle Basic White
- 4″ x 5 1/4″ Basic White inside layer
- Approximately 18″ – 21″ ribbon per card if desired
- Stack your 3 selected coordinating DSP sheets measuring 5″ x 3 3/4″.
- With DSP stack in vertical/portrait position, use a pencil to mark a spot 2″ from the top and another spot 2″ from the bottom on the right side.
- Turn DSP stack so you can mark another spot 1 1/4″ from top and 1 1/4″ from the bottom on the left side.
- Arrange stack in trimmer so you can line up opposite pencil marks in the track.
- Cut stack diagonally from top left pencil mark to top right pencil mark.
- Then cut stack diagonally from bottom left pencil mark to bottom right pencil mark.
- Sort stacks so that you have 1 of each DSP for 3 cards. Each DSP becomes top, middle or bottom on each card.
- Adhere DSP pieces to 5 1/4″ x 4″ cardstock mat, then adhere to card bases.
- NOTE: I carefully punched 2 1/4″ circles out of the mat to save paper. SO, be careful to cover the hole when you adhere DSP to the mat.
- Wrap desired ribbon around the matted DSP before adhering panel to the base.
- Add Wink of Stella around the edge of the large circle and anywhere desired on DSP or embellishments.
- Stamp desired greeting on white circle and adhere onto solid larger circle with Dimensionals. Add to card flat or with Dimensionals.
- Stamp sentiment and/or image from coordinating stamp set or use strip of DSP on inside white layer before adhering to inside of card.
- Stamp coordinating images on envelope front and/or flap.
- Add coordinating DSP to envelope flap if preferred.
- Instructions will be provided in a PDF format to those who participate in my in-person or online class.
- (I’ll also send FREE PDF instructions to demos from the Demonstrator Training Program who request them.)
- After the Forever Greenery Suite retires you can make a similar card using other DSP and cardstock that is available when you shop anytime in my online store.
