Stamp Review Crew - Forever Fern

 

Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew's Forever Fern edition! The "Crew" is made up of a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world who pick a stamp set or bundle to highlight on the first and third Mondays of each month, with a bonus hop if there is a fifth Monday. If you landed here from Nikki's blog, My Sandbox, welcome! There are eleven of us today, so there should be lots to inspire you!

 
I'm sure you've seen lots of cards using the Forever Fern bundle and the Forever Greenery Suite. It's such an amazingly beautiful and versatile set that has been getting lots of love from happy crafters. And I am no exception - the three cards I have to share today make the 13th, 14th, and 15th time I've used this bundle. That's very unusual for me!
 

The first card is a CAS layout using both stamped/die cut pieces and a die cut from the DSP. Because Forever Fern is a DistINKtive stamp, I used sponge daubers to ink the rubber so as to preserve the details. Embossed Vellum cardstock makes a simple background and the gold hoop really makes the HELLO pop.

 
The next card relies on the gorgeous Forever Greenery DSP and Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper. It's heavenly, and so easy to put together a quick, fabulous card!

 
I added some Shaded Spruce splats (stamped off once) to the DSP for more "texture" and a couple of Soft Sea Foam leaf sprigs to the greeting panel. The Shaded Spruce mat behind the greeting is popped up on dimensionals for added depth.


My last card is a wee bit over the top. I got carried away with all the goodies in the suite and just started layering and building it up. I think the only product missing is the gold hoops, LOL.

 

I did borrow the white ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season trim pack, because the Very Vanilla from this suite didn't look right. But that gold cord sure does! Helpful hint: Tie two knots in the cord on either side of where you want to cut....it unravels easily!

 
That's my share for today, so jump on over to see what Jay at Mitosu Crafts has made!
