Introducing FAB Stampers!

FAB Stampers - Connie - Forever Fern 1

A New Adventure

I’m super excited to share FAB Stampers with you! This is something new I’ve been working on with my friend and fellow demonstrator, Connie Douglas. Connie is a demonstrator in Wasaga Beach, Ontario, Canada, and we’ve been friends for several years. We’ve even been able to meet up a couple of times, back when we had in-person Conventions in Salt Lake City.

FAB Stampers – A Collaboration

Connie and I decided that our customers deserve to see different styles of stamping and lots of FABulous projects. So, with that in mind, we will be working together to share some great stamping projects with you, as we share blog posts. You will know when a blog post is one that we are sharing as you will see our new logo in the pictures.

Heeeeeeere’s Connie!

Without further ado, here’s our very first FAB Stampers post, a project from Connie!

Hello! I’m Connie Douglas. Today it is my turn to share a blog post, so let’s get started.

Today I have a great layout for you. It is great for lots of reasons; it is easy to create, it shows off our beautiful Designer Series Paper, and it is very flexible – you can arrange your pieces in lots of different ways.

Forever Fern – Sample 1

I have used the Forever Fern stamp set for all my cards today, but changed some of the other elements. The sentiment on this card is from Lovely You, and is perfect for sending a card for no reason other than to brighten someone’s day. My background DSP is Evening Evergreen from the 2021-2023 In Colour 6×6 DSP. The smaller piece of DSP is from the Beauty of the Earth DSP. I have used Evening Evergreen ink along with Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen cardstock. This card is embellished with the Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots.

Forever Fern – Sample 2 & 3

For the next two cards I used the You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper, swapping the front and back pieces of DSP. Both cards have Pale Papaya cardstock and Calypso Coral cardstock and ink. The sentiment is from Timeless Tulips. Both cards are embellished with Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.


These cards are easy to make so grab your supplies and get all the measurements here.
Card Base – 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, score at 4 1/4
DSP – 4 x 5 1/5, 2 1/2 x 3 1/4
Coloured Cardstock – 2 3/4 x 3 1/2, 2 1/2 x 2 7/8
Neutral Cardstock – 2 1/4 x 2 5/8
You will also need a strip for the sentiment in either a light colour or a neutral.
Have fun!

New In-Color Just Jade Punch Flower

As a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I am always trying to “Better My Best”, which means watching videos, reading about new ideas, and training to learn how to provide better service to both customers and team members.

I recently took an online Leadership Training with Ronda Wade.  This was one of our Make ‘n Takes, and I loved it so much that I just had to let my club members make it.

It’s super cute in ANY of the new in-colors and flower punches, and oh so quick and easy!  Thank you, Ronda Wade, for an easy class project!

Double Point Fold Timeless Tulips

This is another card from this month’s Stamp Club, which was held online.  An online class was something new for most of us, but we had fun!

This card uses another Designer Series Paper from the Magnolia bulk paper pack.  If you missed the other card I shared using paper from this pack, you can view it here.  This paper is on the retiring list, so get it while you can.  It’s a great deal with 20 sheets, ten each of two double sided patterns.  If you like to make multiples of cards, this pack gives you enough of the same pattern to do that.
