Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Square Thank You Card

Last Thursday on Facebook, I challenged you to use your Designer Series Paper.

With the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog coming to a close, I’m trying to use up the last bits of my Designer Series Paper.
I mean, we have to make room for all the new goodies, don’t we?!

So I have a really quick, simple, just #simplestamping, no die cutting, card for today.

My card starts off with Pretty Peacock cardstock, which by the way, will be retiring for good the end of April. It would be a great idea to stock up on this color while it’s still available!

Next I cut a pattern from the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper almost square – 1/8″ shorter width wise and then cut it on a diagonal.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Fern Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz ink and a fern in Pretty Peacock ink on a square piece of Basic White cardstock, matting a panel of Pretty Peacock cardstock behind it.

I then wound around a piece of the Pretty Peacock/Old Olive ribbon behind the square, adhering it down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Now on to today’s card…

My card starts off with Pretty Peacock cardstock. I then took a smaller panel and embossed it using the Subtle Embossing Folder.

I then cut three squares – 1-3/4 x 1-3/4 each – one from the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper, another from Pear Pizzazz cardstock, and a third from Whisper White cardstock.

On the Pear Pizzazz square, I stamped one of the images from the Forever Fern Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz ink. On the Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink and then matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

Finally, I added a Pretty Peacock bow and a few Gilded Gems.

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Card Video Tutorial

Although I had created this card for our blog hop last Thursday, I just couldn’t wait and shared it as part of my Wednesday night live tutorial.

It uses the Forever Fern Bundle, along with the beautiful Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper and other great products!

I’ll be back tonight with another live tutorial.  This time I’m using the Peace & Joy Bundle and creating three cards, one for a beginner stamper,  an intermediate stamped, and an avid stamper.  I did something similar here.

Stampin’ Up! Quick and Easy Forever Fern Hello Card

This Wednesday you’ll finally be able to get your hands on this beautiful suite from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, the Forever Greenery Suite.

My card today is a simple card that easily could be a #simplestamping card if you left off the embossed background.

It starts off with Mint Macaron cardstock which I embossed using the NEW Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the various leaves from the Forever Fern Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz, Mint Maracron, and Mossy Meadow ink.  I then matted this on another panel of Whisper White cardstock.

To be honest with you, I had originally stamped the “hello” straight onto the same panel above the leaves, but I stamped it crooked…oops.  So I stamped it separately in Mossy Meadow ink and adhered it over my oops using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches.
