Stampin' Up! Forever Fern Fall Hello Card | The Crafty Carrot Collective

It is smoldering hot here in north eastern Pennsylvania. We’ve been hit with a heat wave and it is so hot that I’m already longing for fall. The timing was perfect because last week’s online class, offered by The Crafty Carrot Collective, focused on using the Forever Fern stamp set and coordinating Forever Flourishing dies. Warning: y’all are going to see a whole lot of cards featuring these products and more – I have the full Forever Greenery Suite and I can’t put it down. When you think of ferns, you think green. But, here is another great example of how versatile the Stampin’ Up! products are – this stamp set and coordinating embellishments that can be used for any season and all occasions. This card features the Forever Fern Stamp Set and the Forever Flourishing Dies -- it was created during a recent class offered by The Crafty Carrot Collective and the design layout credit is owed to Cindy Sshuster (nutmeg creations).

  • Stamp Set: Forever Fern Stamp Set
