I've had fun playing with the Forever Fern stamp set, part of the Forever Greenery Suite in the upcoming 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue from Stampin' Up!. Today I'm showing you 3 versions of the same card.
This version is what Stampin' Up! calls #simplestamping. It uses just stamps, paper and ink. In some ways it can be trickier to keep it so simple, as there is nowhere to hide anything!
This version is slightly stepped-up. The images are stamped the same way, but they are on a separate layer and adhered to the card base. The sentiment is also stamped separately, cut out and added with Stampin' Dimensionals. They are little details, but they make a difference.
This version is stepped up yet again. It's got Gold Foil mats for the image and sentiment layers, and I've added 3 Gilded Gems.
One could certainly go further and add more to the series, including cutting and layering some stamped images, some of the Gold trim from the suite, etc. But I like maintaining the overall simplicity even in the stepped-up versions.
Which one do you like best? Let me know in the comments!
Here's my supply list...you can order the Forever Fern and related suite items starting 3 June, or join my team now to get early access!
