Forever Fern-Kylie’s International Blog Highlights

Hello! Today I’m participating in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights. Readers get to vote on their top five favorites in the gallery and the top 10 winners will get to participate in an International Blog Hop later this month. The thank you theme is a way for us to show our appreciation to someone that has inspired, helped or supported us in some way. Today’s card features Forever Fern, one of my favorite stamp sets from the annual catalog.

I was asked by a women’s organization I belong to, to make cards to go into 110 goodie bags that were hand-delivered to our members two weeks ago. Normally we have an annual membership dinner at a restaurant, however, due to Covid, we were unable to meet in person. We hosted a Zoom event and everyone opened up their bags at the same time. While we couldn’t be together in person, this was the next best option and it was a fun evening! Since I had to do so many cards I stuck to stamps, ink, paper and threw in a punch. Highland Heather and Pacific Point matched our logo perfectly and I added in Granny Apple Green.

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut Highland Heather cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″, score at 5 1/2″ and crease with a bone folder.
  • Cut piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Stamp the floral images from the Forever Fern stamp set with Highland Heather, Pacific Point and Granny Apple Green ink. Since I had to make multiple cards, I used the Stamparatus, which was a great time saver! Stamp the splatter image around the leaves with Pacific Point ink, stamping off once before stamping onto the cardstock.
  • On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the thank you greeting from the Borders Abound stamp set. Punch out with the Tailored Tag punch. Overstamp the small leaf image twice with Highland Heather ink, first stamping off each time. I added a small pearl at the bottom of the tag.
  • Adhere the stamped floral piece to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then adhere the tag to the center of the floral spray with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

We wanted to put a special message into the card so I ended up creating the inside of the card by using my computer printer. I selected a font that came close to matching the font on the tag and then used the RGB numbers for Pacific Point to print the messages, which I did four to a page and then cut apart with the Stampin’ Trimmer.

Forever Fern Note Cards

Hello! Today I’m sharing with you my June customer thank you cards that feature products from the Forever Greenery Suite. I’ve written before that I often neglect to use Stampin’ Up’s note cards, especially when I only need to write a few lines so this time I remembered! The note cards come with envelopes, 20 of each, and at $7.00 for the package, this is a great deal!

Here is how I made the cards:

  • I used the Whisper White note cards. Fold note cards on score line.
  • Cut piece of Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper at 2″ x 3 1/2″.
  • Cut strip of Just Jade cardstock at 1″ x 3 1/2″.
  • Stamp large leaf image from the Forever Fern stamp set with Shaded Spruce ink. Stamp greeting from the Borders Abound stamp set with Just Jade ink. I used the Stamparatus, which is a great tool for making multiples of the same card.
  • Stamp the speckle image from the Forever Fern stamp set with Soft Sea Foam ink around the leaf image.
  • Adhere cut Just Jade strip to card front, close to left edge of the leaf image. Adhere DSP over the Just Jade strip so that 1/4″ of the Just Jade shows as a thin strip.
  • I left the inside blank so I would have enough room to write my note but you can certainly add a thin strip of DSP or stamp a small image if you choose to decorate it.
  • Stamp one of the smaller leaf images with Shaded Spruce ink in the bottom left corner of the envelope

This was a quick and easy project!

Readers get to vote on their top five favorites in the gallery and the top 10 winners will get to participate in an International Blog Hop later this month. The thank you theme is a way for us to show our appreciation to someone that has inspired, helped or supported us in some way. I chose to use the Forever Greenery product suite in the new catalog. This was one of my “had to haves” when I placed my pre-order last month.

Here is how I made the card.

  • Cut piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock at 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″.
  • Cut two pieces of paper from the Forever Greenery Designer Series Papers at 2″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to Pretty Peacock piece.

  • Stamp two of the large leaves, one in Garden Green and one in Pear Pizzazz ink. Stamp round leaf image in Pretty Peacock ink. Stamp two of the small leaves in Soft Sea Foam ink. Note that there are two small leaf stamps. They are directional so stamp and cut one of each. Cut with coordinating dies from the Forever Flourishing die set. Arrange leaves and adhere with liquid glue.
  • Cut piece of the vanilla ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim combo pack and tie in knot around the art piece. Adhere the greeting with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add a Just Jade enamel dot to greeting.
