Sometimes when a new Stampin’ Up!® catalog comes out I get so excited for new products I forget about the older sets. Those poor products sit on a shelf feeling very forgotten. When I was packing up my supplies to bring to the cottage I looked through all my current sets to see which ones I want to bring and I come across some that have been neglected for a while.
Forever Fern is one of those sets. It is a beautiful set with a bunch of different branches of leaves, some berries and a few sentiments. It also has a coordinating die set called Forever Flourishing. You can’t get the bundle savings anymore because Stampin’ Up!® only offers that deal on new products but this stamp and die set are worth the extra. Sometimes Stampin’ Up!® comes out the new products that coordinate with the older ones. This time they have a new embossing folder called Fern. It pairs perfectly with Forever Fern.
To make this card, I first ran a piece of Basic White card stock through my Cut & Emboss machine using the Fern embossing Folder. Then I layered that on top of a piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock and a Basic White card base. Next I stamped one set of leaves in Pale Papaya ink and the berries in Fresh Freesia. Then I used the dies from the Forever Flourishing set in Soft Sea Foam and Pear Pizzazz card stock. I layered everything together. Next I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set called Artistically Inked in Pear Pizzazz ink and layered that on top using Dimensionals.
My suggestion today is to go through your stash of stamp sets and pull out a few of the older sets. It will make them so happy to be used again!
oh good for you, bringing out an old favorite. I love the color combination, that is so beautiful!
This is so pretty, Susan. The embossed background is so lovely, and the colors so soft. Thanks for the reminder about using older stamps. I forget about them too.
