Inspire.Create.Challenge #077 | Alternative Colours with Forever Fern

So, today’s Inspire.Create.Challenge is a fabulous colour combination, and one that almost had me pulling Painted Poppies off my stamp shelves. But then I spotted Forever Fern, and I just knew what I wanted to make.

I’ve made a heap of cards with Forever Fern now, but they’ve all been very green! But I’ve seen some lovely cards using different colours with it recently, and although this still has green in it, its less green than some of the other combinations I have used. I do have an idea in my head of using pinks… but I’ll save that for another day.

Each of the colours is stamped off before stamping onto the card, just so it’s not super bright, and the stamping isn’t perfect, but I really like the effect.

The Forever Fern stamp set does have its own coordinating dies, but instead of reaching for those today, I’ve used the Tasteful Labels instead. These two are layered together in the packet, and I really like the look, and it’s translated really well into card stock.

The backing label is in Poppy Parade, along with the stamping, with the aim of moving away from the green. I almost added some sparkles to this card, but I’ve kept it simple in the end.

Don’t forget to pop over to the Inspire.Create blog and check out the rest of the Design Team’s creations before adding your own makes using Poppy Parade, Rich Razzleberry and Mossy Meadow

Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper Swap Card

I took part in a virtual retreat this weekend. With the dreaded virus, the usual in person event had to be cancelled, but instead of missing a year, we chose to take it online instead! I made more projects than I have in months, and had great fun!

One of the best parts of in person Stampin’ Up! events is project swaps, and so we did the same… just sent them in the post instead!

Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper swap card using Stampin' Up! Forever Fern with StampinByHannah

I chose to take part in the Designer Series Paper swap this time, and so had to make cards with paper as the main focus.

This card was really simple to put together, but looks really complicated. I cut the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper to 14.8 x 13.5 cm, so it was the same height as my card base, but a little wider. Then scored the paper on the right hand side at 3cm, and folded it back and put a spot of adhesive where I was going to add my sentiment label.

The card is finished with a die cut leaf from the Forever Flourishing dies, a label from the Painted Labels dies, and sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set.
