Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Simply Stamped Friend Card

Tonight’s card is simply stamped friendship card using the Forever Fern stamp set along with a matching envelope. Enjoy!

The Paper

  • Whisper White Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ and a 5 1/4 x 4″ panel
  • Whisper White Medium Envelope

The Creating

I started by stamping the sentiment in the center of the white panel in Tuxedo Black ink. I then covered it with a 1″ strip of computer paper securing it on the back with washi tape to prevent it from slipping. I also used the rest of the computer paper to cover the lower portion of the card (below the 1″ strip) if needed.

I used 4 different leaf images and 4 different shades of green. I inked each leaf in a color and stamped it on the top, rotated the card and repeated. I also stamped them on the envelope front and flap. I added the spatter image in 2nd Generation with the 4 colors on the card front and the envelope.

I removed the 1″ strip and adhered the decorated panel to the card front. I added 3 gems from the Flowers for Every Season Gems by placing a dot of Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive on the card where it was to go and adding the gem on top.


Thank you for stopping by. Please email me at stampdabbles@gmail.com with any questions or if I can be of assistance with your stamping creativity. I hope you will give this set a go…you won’t regret it!

Happy Stamp Dabbling!

Three Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Cards

Yesterday, Amy’s Inkin’ Krew had a Team Meeting that included virtual stamping together! There were three card presenters/instructors (listed in order presented): Sue Prather, Amy Koenders and Mary Deatherage. They are so talented! What a special treat to get to stamp with and learn from them. I’ve included pictures of the cards I made and have indicated which is who’s design.

Being a part of a stamping team and sharing ideas is just one of the many perks of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. Others include:

  • You get to purchase your Stampin’ Up! supplies at a discount (I call this supporting my habit, lol)
  • You make a commission on Stampin’ Up! products purchased from you (just by sharing what you enjoy doing with others).
  • You get to run your hobby or business the way you want and when you want and at a level your comfortable with.

I encourage you to consider giving it a try. If you find it’s not for you, it’s okay, there’s no loss. The $99 Starter Kit is $125 worth of products which you keep. And, there could be no better time than June because there is additional FREE product in the kit —you also select any stamp/tool bundle from the new 2020–2021 Annual Catalog. I’d love to talk to you about it. and answer your questions. Feel free to drop me a line at stampdabbles@gmail.com.

Enjoy the cards! I’ve linked the supplies we used for all below.

Sue Prather at StampWithSuePrather brought us this card originally designed by Heidi Collins at On Y Go! Stamping.

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Hello Notecard

This card features the Forever Fern bundle from the new 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. It also incorporates the Layering Circles Dies and a sentiment from the To A Wild Rose stamp set. Enjoy!

The Paper

  • Pretty Peacock Cardstock: a 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ and a 1 1/2″ scallop circle die cut from Layering Circles Dies.
  • Garden Green Cardstock:  a 4″ x 5 1/4″ and a 1 3/4″ scallop circle die cut from Layering Circles Dies.
  • Whisper White Cardstock: a 3 7/8″ x 5 3/8″ panel (front), a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel (inside) and a 1 3/8″ smooth circle from Layering Circles Dies.
  • Vellum Cardstock: a large fern leaf die cut from the Forever Flourishing Dies.

The Creating

  • Stamp the leaf fronds on the Whisper White front panel with Pretty Peacock and Garden Green Inks with the stamps in the center of the card.
  • Stamp the leaf frond on the Whisper White inside panel and on the envelope in Garden Green.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the Whisper White smooth circle die cut in Pretty Peacock. (There is a Hello in the Forever Fern stamp set that can be used, but I like the way this one filled the circle instead of being in a straight line. It’s nice to have options 😉
  • Adhere the Garden Green panel to the card front and the stamped front panel to it. Adhere the Whisper White inside panel.
  • Snip the stamps away from the stem on the Vellum fern die cut. Separate any touching leaves and trim where needed. Dry fit these on the card front so that the stems are in the center. Adhere with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.
  • Adhere the Garden Green circle in the center over the stems.
  • Adhere the white circle to the Pretty Peacock circle and pop onto the green one with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern and Stitched Rectangle Hello Card

This card is made with the Forever Fern Stamp Set from the Forever Greenery Suite of products in the new 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Catalog. It is a great beginner card and can be simplified if you aren’t into die cutting yet. It would also be a great card to replicate in number using the stamparatus. I listed links below for the items I used for this card and at the end the link for the suite so you could see the other things included.

The Paper Cuts

  • Pretty Peacock Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″ card base scored at 5 1/2″
  • Old Olive Cardstock: Largest Stitched Rectangle Die (Tip: To save cardstock and weight for postage I cut out a smaller Stitched Rectangle Die from the center to use in another project. No one will every know!)
  • Whisper White Cardstock: Two of the Largest Stitched Rectangle Die (Keep the center in these!).

The Creating

  • Chose 4 stamps from the set and decided which 2 will be Pretty Peacock and which 2 will be Pear Pizzazz.
  • Then stamp a First Generation Image (straight from the ink pad) in one location on a Whisper White Panel and then rotated the panel 1/3 of the way around and stamp a Second Generation Image (Stamping again without re-inking, using the left over ink on the stamp. Tip: be sure to stamp a little less of the image than the First Generation so that you don’t see a dark line where the ink from the first image was off the edge of the card. Or, you can just reink and stamp off on a scrap sheet before going to the card.)
  • Then I filled in with the mirror image leaves from the set where it made sense, if needed.
  • Add images and sentiment to the inside panel and envelope.
  • Adhere the panels to the card with Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.
  • Add the Hello sentiment in Tuxedo Black Ink (I did this at the end to get have it straight after I glued the panels at the angles).

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed the card. Links for items used to make this card are listed below or you can browse for other supplies at my Stampin’ Up! shop in the side bar. Use the May Host Code for free gifts from me (if your order is $150 or more you don’t want to use it so that you get Hostess Rewards). See my Rewards Page for full details.
