Stampin' Up! Plentiful Plants for Amy's Inkin' Krew Team Blog Hop


Welcome to another Inkin’ Krew monthly blog hop! Our very talented team is doing a blog hop featuring Stampin’ Up! products. This month we are all creating projects with a “Celebrate" theme. Here is what I created for it...

I CASE'd a card by my friend, teammate, and upline, Mary Deatherage. Measurements can be found at the end of this post.

My card base is Mint Macaron cardstock with a panel of the upcoming SAB (January-February) Daffodil Afternoon DSP. Then a panel of Pale Papaya cardstock. Next a panel of Cork Specialty DSP. I used the Plentiful Plants Stamp Set and Plants Dies. The pot is cut from the 2020-2022 In Color DSP, the macrame hanger is Sahara Sand cardstock and the leaves are stamped in Pear Pizzazz and Evening Evergreen ink.

The sentiment from the retired Well Scripted Stamp Set is stamped on Mint Macaron cardstock in Evening Evergreen ink. I cut it out with a Stitched So Sweetly Die. The bow is a triple loop bow of Linen Thread.

For the inside I used sentiments from the Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set, a strip of DSP and an image from Plentiful Plants. I punched one corner with the Detailed Trio Punch.

I'm entering my card at NBUS #33 as I have never used the Plentiful Plants Stamp Set or Plant Dies before. I'm also entering Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper December 2021 Challenge.
