Last week I posted a question on my Facebook page, Blue Line Stamping, asking what stamp sets you would like to see.  Sadly I did not receive much of a response.  If you are a regular follower of mine here, please take a minute to Like my Facebook page as well.  I would appreciate it.

One of the sets that was requested was Forever & Always.  So I am sharing a card using those products today.  You can never go wrong with Black & White (plus a touch of color).  And that is what I have used.


Stampin' Up!, forever and always, parisian flourish, true love, jackie beers


Normally I would not use quite as much color with my black and white card, but I felt the flowers and the love needed the two colors.  You cannot see it from the full picture but the Basic Black background is embossed using the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder.

Here is a close up.

It really is beautiful in person.  The details of the embossing worked wonderfully on the black.  The flowers are colored using the Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends with the centers being the Light Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blend.  Plus I added one of the Pastel Pearls to each center.

The leaves are colored using Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  I also added the background of the “Love” using Old Olive cardstock.  The LOVE is Purple Posy cardstock attached to Foam Adhesive Sheet and then die cut.  This is the best way for a simple adhering of the thin letters as well as giving it a raised look.

The strip of DSP is from the True Love Designer Series Paper.  I wanted to add a grounding strip for the flower layers.  The flowers are adhered to a die cut from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I used the largest of the scalloped layers.

Thank you for visiting today.  I hope you enjoyed the card.  I have all of the products I used listed at the bottom of the page.  Remember that we are almost finished with this first round of Sale-A-Bration.  It ends on February 28th.
