Forever Fern Stampin' Up! Peggy Noe

It’s summer and everything is blooming, and we have some amazing stamps to create garden scenes! Today I have for you a shabby chic card that I hope will encourage you to “smile”!

Forever Fern Card Stampin' Up! Peggy Noe

The Whisper White card base is topped with a piece of  Pretty Peacock card stock embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. Then there is another piece of Whisper White card stock embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder and sponged with Daffodil Delight ink and a Sponge Dauber. The edges of this piece were distressed with my Paper Snips.

The top layer is a piece of Shimmery White card stock watercolored with a wash of Daffodil Delight ink using Water Painters. After it was dry, a decorative stamp from the Very Versailles stamp set was stamped lightly (by stamping off) with Crumb Cake ink. It was then stamped in Pretty Peacock ink with a stamp from the Forever Fern stamp set. Using the Dark Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blend, some ink was splattered across the top of the piece. The piece was then distressed.

A piece of Just Jade Gingham Ribbon (Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack) was tied in a bow around the lower portion of the piece, A little leaf from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper was tucked in under the bow, The “smile” sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set was heat embossed on a piece of Pretty Peacock card stock and cut out with a darling little die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.
