Forever Fern meets Simple Stamping today on my blog. This card is super simple to create with products you have already in your stash, once you add the Forever Fern stamp set.
I started off wanting to use a colour from each of the current In Colors that Stampin’ Up! have in their range right now. I chose the two greens within each collection which led me to Just Jade and Pretty Peacock. Stamping in Pretty Peacock ink with some of the ferns I then added some Bumblebee card as an accent and to cover up the end of the stems. The scrap piece was sitting on my desk at the time which made it an easy choice to use.
Adding the ‘Hello’ in Tuxedo Black Memento and the stamping is done. I layered Basic Black card onto the Just Jade card base and then realised that the whisper white was too long so rather than grabbing out my trimmer I chose to tear off the bottom. What do you think? Do the colours work? Forever Fern meets Simple Stamping – I must say the three colours have grown on my over the time.
I’m excited to be sharing this Blossoms in Bloom Stepped Up card today. Starting by inking up the blossoms stamp in So Saffron Ink and then using my Mango Melody Stampin’ Write marker I added some colour to the edge of the stamp. I then overlayed the die cut blossoms from the Many Layered Blossoms dies using my Fine Tip Glue.
I have created a video for you to have a look and see how I have made this card. I’m very new to making videos but I wanted to share how I’ve created these cards.
Let me know what you think and share your projects with me.

As there are a number of colours changing in Stampin’ Up!’s colour collections it can be hard to remember the names of the new colours and know how each colour will coordinate.
With my Colour Cardstock Sampler you will be able to see the colours and match them before you cut up a new piece of our gorgeous colours.
The Colour Cardstock Sampler is only $10 plus postage and comes with all the labels and a hinged ring to keep all the colours together. The ring also allows for the cards to move more freely so you can match up contrasting colours more easily.
Yes, you could create this all on your own. But, why take the time, and chop up your cardstock, when you don’t have to?

The spice of life is variety, and that’s especially true in the world of colour. Stampin’ Up! makes a point to keep an eye on colour trends across different markets and industries. When we see changes happening, Stampin’ Up! review their colour spectrum to ensure that they remain consistently on top of the trends. This brings us to the 2018 Colour Revamp!
In order to keep bringing you the most current and on trend colours, Stampin’ Up! decided it was time to give their colour collections a makeover.
With this revamp, you’ll not only have new products, but also have a new variety of shades that will inspire creativity and allow you to explore more sides of your crafting.
There are still four colour collections, each with ten colours. There is also a new colour group called Basics.
The Basics colour group are our Basic Black, Whisper White & Very Vanilla colours. This has meant that Stampin’ Up! could add an additional 3 colours to the Neutral Collection so we have more colours to play with.
Some additional colours have changed collections as well—you’ll notice this as you look through the new collections below. These changes were based on needing to maintain colour balance in our updated collections. For example, Poppy Parade is now the brightest red so it is part of the Brights collection.
If you have colours in your collection that you love then I suggest you purchase some ink refills as soon as possible, otherwise the colour will disappear and you may end up with a dry inkpad. I always suggest purchasing an ink refill at the time of buying your stamp pad.
