Good morning everyone. Today is another Stamp Off Challenge with Buffy, Jackie and me. We were talking about challenges and one of us asked if we should use a specific stamp set since we really have never done that before. I know sometimes two of us may end up using the same but we have never planned that. Forever Fern was the only set we all owned so we went with that.
The stamp set called Forever Fern is part of a Suite called Forever Greenery. This suite also includes the coordinating dies called Forever Flourishing (you can save 10% by purchasing the stamp set and the dies in a bundle), gorgeous Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper, two embossing folders, ribbon and the very cute Gold Hoops I used on this project.
For me, one of the hardest parts of making a card is choosing the colors. I usually go with the same old ones but lately I have been trying new combinations. This time I used Crumb Cake, Mossy Meadow and Rococo Rose. I first took a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and embossed it using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I love how embossing folders add some dimension to the background of a card. Then I stamped all the images and cut them out using my brand new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I love that thing!
Next I embossed the sentiment on Mossy Meadow cardstock using Versamark and White Stampin Emboss Powder. Then I cut it out using a die from Tasteful Labels. I used Multipurpose Glue to attach the Gold Hoop to the cardstock and dimensionals to attach the other images.
