Good Morning! Today I have some cards to share that we made during our virtual team meeting over the weekend. We used the Stampin Up! Forever Fern bundle to make the cards that were designed by our team lead Amy Koenders and team mates Mary Deatherage and Sue Prather. The designs really show off the beauty and versatility of this bundle because the cards were all Hello cards, but each unique and beautiful. You can find the supplies used to create these cards at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
The first card we made was a gorgeous faux watercolor card that Sue Prather presented. She CASEd it from a card by Heidi Collins. We inked up a stamp block with Soft Sea Foam, Pear Pizzazz, Garden Green, Shaded Spruce and Pretty Peacock ink using the direct from pad technique to create an ombre look. We spritzed it with water and stamped it on a Whisper White Thick card stock panel. After it dried, we stamped the leaves and sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern cling stamp set in Pretty Peacock and stamped the spatter multiple times without re-inking. So pretty!!😊
Here is the inside – just repeating the leaf and spatter stamping using Pretty Peacock on a Whisper White panel.
Amy Koenders designed the next card with the gorgeous wood grain In Good Taste designer series paper! I adhered a gold hoop, some die cut leaves in Just Jade and Pretty Peacock using the Forever Flourishing Dies. I also stamped some leaf clusters from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern stamp set in Pretty Peacock, Just Jade and Shaded Spruce ink and cut them out with the coordinating die. I stamped the sentiment in Cinnamon Cider ink and cut it out with the stitched banner from the Tasteful Labels Dies. I adhered the label with glue dots and dimensionals and finished the card front off with Gilded Gems.
And I stamped more leaves in Pretty Peacock and Just Jade inks on a Whisper White panel for the inside of the card.
Mary Deatherage designed and guided us through the final card and we got to use the fabulous Forever Foils laser cut foil sheets! For this card, I layered some Forever Greenery designer series paper on Soft Sea Foam card stock and popped it on the front of a Basic Black card base. I ran a Shaded Spruce panel through the Greenery embossing folder and adhered it across the center. Then I adhered the beautiful gold foil spray in the middle and stamped the Soft Sea Foam label with Basic Black, Soft Sea Foam and Shaded Spruce before cutting it out with a circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies. My hello sentiment is a little high, so I added a trio of Shaded Spruce rhinestones to balance the label.
For the inside, I stamped leaves in Soft Sea Foam and Shaded Spruce along with some stamped off spatter from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern stamp set on a Whisper White panel. I adhered it to a Soft Seafoam mat before adhering it to the inside of the card.
All of the cards were so beautiful and it was such a fun virtual team meeting!
Our team tries to meet in person once a quarter to chat and make cards. This was the first time we made cards virtually and it worked out pretty well! But we’re hoping to meet in person again when things get back to normal. If you’d like to join us drop me a note.
