Last month I ordered the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper when it was on sale, and then decided I really needed to get the coordinating stamp and die bundle, Plentiful Plants. The stamp set has great sentiments for expressing gratitude.

I started with a Basic White Note Card (3.5″ x 5″), and added a gorgeous greenery piece of the DSP to the entire card front. I embossed a 3.5″ square piece of Gray Granite Cardstock with the Macrame 3D Embossing Folder. I stamped the plant and pot images with Evening Evergreen and Cinnamon Cider ink, then die cut them.

I stamped the sentiment with Just Jade ink onto a piece of DSP, then cut it out with one of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I added the plant, pot, and sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Finally, I colored three Rhinestone Basic Jewels with the dark Just Jade Stampin’ Blends marker and added them to the card.

In a short time I was able to create a few cards that will be going out to customers this week!
