Plants and Paper

When I first saw the Pretty Prints Designer Series Paper in the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog, I thought, "enh, I don't think so." But, since I didn't have enough customers to do a full paper share, I had to participate myself to make it happen, and by default, I got 2 pieces of every DSP including the Pretty Prints. I've wanted to use my Plentiful Plants bundle to make card kits since I bought the stamps and dies last year, so I decided to put these two together to offer for my June Club Card Kits. What a perfect match! I also pulled some sentiments from the Sun Prints Suite using

Nature's Prints Bundle, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. I embossed some pieces with the Fern embossing folder also included in the Sun Prints Suite.

When I make card kits to sell on my website, I try to make them where the buyer doesn't have to own the stamps and dies I'm using to make the card. I want to provide everything they need to make the card except the stamped sentiments, and I think I have accomplished that with all of these cards. The Plentiful Plants dies are amazing and that's why I knew I wanted to offer card kits using them. I have enough of the old Bloom Where You're Planted DSP leftover that I can cut the images of pots and plants out for them to use along with the Pretty Prints DSP. Here I die cut the plant stand out of shiny silver paper which added a modern touch.

I used each of the four colors in the Pretty Prints DSP to make the 4 card designs for the June Club Card Kits. This Blackberry Bliss fun fold with the little pots cut using the dies from the Plentiful Plants bundle might just be my favorite card from this batch. I used the sentiment from the Plentiful Plants stamp set for this one.

I haven't made my mind up about the Calypso Coral card yet. I'm still trying to decide which one to add to the Club Card Kits. Which do you like better?

I'm going to be adding more stamps, punches and dies to my "for sale" pile. Some of the ones I'm ready to part with are in the current 2022-2023 Annual Catalog, so I can only give those away with a purchase from my online Stampin' Up! store, but some are for sale on my website so take a look under Shop in the home menu or click here to go there now.

Take care and happy crafting!
