thoughtful plants

Hello and welcome to my crafty blog. Today’s card features the ‘plentiful plants’ stamps and dies from Stampin’ Up!, inspired by Joanne’s sketch over at The Paper Players. I rotated the layout for my card (hope that’s OK, Joanne!) and used the colours from Just Add Ink‘s inspiration photo.

I started by rubbing ‘pumice stone’ Distress Oxide across SU’s ‘pinewood planks’ embossing folder, and then ran the bottom edge of a square of white card through it. I attached that to a 6×6 card blank.

I stamped and die cut three of the pots from the ‘plentiful plants’, together with a selection of leaves. I used Distress Oxides in ‘stormy sky’, mermaid lagoon’ & ‘walnut stain’ for the pots, with ‘iced spruce’ and ‘evergreen bough’ for the plants. I glued a set of leaves into each pot and then attached them to the card front with foam pads.

I finishe by stamping one of the sentiments from ‘art gallery’ onto a die cut banner and attached that below the pots, also on foam pads. The final touch was a few Glossies.

Thanks for dropping in. I had a great morning in an online class with Joanne James (who’s hosting this week’s Paper Players challenge) – there’ll be more inspiration from that over the coming days!

  1. How pretty, Deborah! Your rotated sketch works perfectly and I love the sweetly arranged images. The colors and wood texture knock this out of the park! I’m so glad you played along this week at The Paper Players.

  2. What a gorgeous card, Deborah! I love the little pops of colour in your plants and pots against the white. Such a fabulous idea to ink up your embossing folder first. It gives a fantastic effect. Thanks for playing along this week at Just Add Ink. Rochelle xo
