Hello stampers and happy Friday to you. Today I am introducing you to Just Jade, a lovely new In Colour from Stampin’Up! from 2020-2022. If you have any doubts at all about this colour, just pair it with the Forever Greenery designer series paper and you will fall in love! Let’s take a look at my simple card.
Forever Fern Card with Just Jade
Isn’t this card just a breath of fresh air on a hot day? I left this card behind in Chatham, so I am guessing at the measurements. The Just Jade piece is 1 3/4″ by 5 3/8″ and I ran it through the Greenery embossing folder. The Forever Greenery paper is 2 3/8″ by 5 3/8″. Adhere them to the card front and then tie the gold metallic trim from the Forever Greenery trim combo pack around twice ending with a nice big bow. The saying is from Forever Fern and is of course stamped in Just Jade. The die is from Tasteful Touches bundle.

Hello stampers and happy Monday to you. I almost forgot to share these beautiful Forever Fern sympathy cards with you! Forever Fern is a stunning DistINKtive style stamp that is perfect for making sympathy cards. Take a look at what I have made and I think you will agree with me.
Forever Fern Sympathy Cards
The dies used on this card are from Tasteful Touches bundle which is one of the choices you have as your free bundle if you get the starter kit. I used Pretty Peacock as the accent colour and the stamp set is Here’s A Card. The gold foil embellishments from the last two cards are from the vastly improved Laser Cut Gold Foil Paper.
Embossing on Wood with Forever Fern
Yes, you can emboss on wooden elements. Just press the wood into the versamark firmly several times and sprinkle with white embossing powder. Hold it firmly with tweezers and heat emboss. If you only use one coat of embossing powder then the intricate design will still show through. Here is a close up.
Stamp Sets Used
Here are the stamp sets I used for these cards. If you watched my daily live videos you have seen how quickly and easily these cards came together. Stampin’Up! makes it so easy to make beautiful things with their coordinated suites. Don’t forget that if you live in Canada you can get the amazing deal on the starter kit through me and get a free bonus bundle. There is no need to “do parties” or to do what I do. If you love to stamp, you deserve your own discount, it is as simple as that.
One More Card!
Wow, this is turning into a long blog post, you are definitely getting a good read today and lots of ideas to jump start your own creativity. This last card uses more of that beautiful Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty paper. I also used the dies from the Tasteful Touches bundle.
To save you from searching everywhere, the ribbon is from the Flowers for Every Season suite collection, it comes in a ribbon pack with lovely twine and also gingham ribbon. Love, love, love.
Here is the video I made showing you how to make these cards. It’s a Facebook live video so there is a fair bit of chitchat, but you can fast forward at any time and I will never know! I hope you have a super day. As an aside, I must share that I find it very therapeutic to make sympathy cards. I know that in a small way I am making a difference, I am showing that I care enough to make a personalized card for the person who is grieving. Somehow, I think you feel the same way.
Hello stampers and happy Monday to you! Today I am going to share with you my original “toilet paper” card using Forever Fern. Forever Fern is a stunning “DistInktive” stamp set in the new annual catalog which goes live on Wednesday. Let’s take a look at this great card.
Forever Fern Toilet Paper Embossing Card
I made this card on my Facebook live video on Thursday and I shared this video in my blog post on Friday but now you get to see the finished card. I made a few little changes. Can you see them? I added another gold foil element from the Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty paper on page 152 of the new annual catalog. The finishing touch was a few little gems from the Flowers for Every Season gems which come in clear and Just Jade.
Here is a close up of the card so that you can see how pretty the gems are and how lovely the ribbon combo is! I am going to be making this card for one of my clubs on Tuesday and I am going to switch it up again with different ribbon. I will be sure to share a picture on my Facebook and Instagram accounts.
Embossed Toilet Paper
I thought you might like to see what the embossed toilet paper looks like before I trim it down. If you want the step by step instructions, be sure to check out my blog post from Friday. You can see it here.
It is surprising how well this embossed toilet paper holds up to sponging with a sponge dauber! The embossing folders are all from the new catalog except for the one at the bottom, it is Parisian Flourish. If you want to see the products used in my card, check out the images in the product list below.
Did you see that I am offering my first ever online Bingo? This fun event will be on Friday June 26 at 7pm EST. It is open to demonstrators and if you already have the stamp set that I am including in the fee then you can tell me which one you would like instead as long as it is the same value or less. Check out the details here.
Thanks for joining me! There will not be a regular Facebook live today as I am visiting my parents again. Now that I am home for a bit I want to take advantage of it and visit them more often. Time is of the essence! Have a super day. See you on Wednesday when the new catalog goes live!! What fun, I can’t wait because there are so many wonderful things to be ordered.
