Forever Fern Stamping Suggestions and Tips


Today I wanted to show you one of my favourite stamp and die sets, Forever Fern Stamp set and the Forever Flourishing Die set.  With this set I wanted to use it as an example to show you some time saving tips. 

The reason why it is one of my favourite sets is because I find it very versatile and works with most of my other stamps and dies.  This is what I look for when I purchase a stamp set and dies  I work out how well it will work by itself and with other sets. 

Now for the for the time saving tip….. When you are using the stamp set and dies, why not do extras?  These can be in the same colour or you can make some different coloured leaves.  

The other suggestion is stamping the leaves and this is without a project or card in mind at the time but just because you have some free time to do some stamping.  I find knowing that I have them ready when I need them very satisfying.  I like to do this while watch some TV or just some quiet time in the craft room.

I have found that if I cut an A4 85mm x 297mm (length of an A4) I can get 2 strips the same size and one small piece which all fit through the Mini Stamp and Emboss Machine. 

In the video I use the thin Basic White card to stamp on and the 2021 - 2022 In Colors and Pear Pizzazz stamp pads.

The card stock I used are Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent, Pear Pizzazz and the metallic rose gold specialty paper. 

Below are some of the stamp sets, dies and punches I have that work well with this set.

Daisy Lane and the Daisy punch, especially the small punch works so well with Forever Fern.  I like combining these two as the Daisy stamp set doesn’t have dies for the leaves. 

Jar of Flowers and Jar punch.  Again this stamp set doesn’t have dies for the these flowers so instead you could add the leaves and if you wanted a 3D card use these gorgeous jars on your card.  You could also add a Daisy or more.

Birds & Branches stamp and dies set would really benefit with the extra leaves from the Forever Fern.  

Any flower stamp you have could be used with the Forever Fern, the Artistically Inked would look lovely with some of the metallic gold leaves.

One of my favourites in the New Catalogue is the Plentiful Plants and it comes with dies.  Again you could combine it with the Forever Fern to give  a different look to your card.

Forever Blossoms stamp set and Cherry Blossoms dies is another lovely set to use with with the Forever Fern leaves. 

Here is the video, I hope you enjoy and gained some useful tips.  

Thank you for visiting my blog, and Happy Stamping.
