Stampers Dozen Blog Hop...New Catalog Favorites

Bloom Where You're Planted Suite

One of the first sets I purchased from the new 2021-22 Stampin' Up! catalog was Plentiful Plants, in fact I bought the Bloom Where You're Planted Suite which includes the Plentiful Plants bundle, Bloom Where You're Planted DSP, and the Paper Lattices.    There was just something about that bundle that resonated with me.  It was nostalgic to see the macrame plant hanger and it brought back memories of dorm rooms filled with plants.   This suite of products was perfect to use  for the Festive Friday Challenge #FF0084 celebrating the festivity, National Gardening Week.

The Festive Friday Challenge has a  Inspo List which is inspired by a festivity.  Your project has to use at least 3 items from the Inspo List.  You do not have to follow the theme but you can.  You can check out the Festive Friday blog for all the information on how to play along with the Challenge. 


I chose plants, green, die-cuts, and flowers from the Inspo List.


I wanted to create a window scene so I started by cutting a frame using the In Good Taste DSP and 2 Stitched Rectangle dies.   I attached the Paper Lattice to the frame and backed it with a piece from the Bloom Where You're Planted DSP.  The frame and lattice were attached to the Early Espresso CS card base.  I "planted" my plants in Cajun Craze CS pots that were stamped using Early Espresso ink.  The plants were stamped on Just Jade CS in either Just Jade ink or Evening Evergreen ink.  Check out the shading on the pots, it is so good!


The Polished Pink flowers are from the Loose Flower Flourishes.  I attached them with dots of glue. The sentiment is also from the Plentiful Plants stamp set.  The label is from the Messages die.  Inside of the card I planted another pot of greenery.   

Be sure to check out what the rest of the Festive Friday Design team created for this challenge.

So very pretty Sharon! For some reason, I can't see the pictures on your blog tonight. It may be a problem on my end.

Wonderful card Sharon, so many details that all go together perfectly. (Especially love the shaded pots!)
