Hello readers and happy Friday! I hope you have some fun plans for the weekend ahead. We have nothing specific planned yet, but sometimes no plans are the best plans!
Today I am sharing two cards I created using a new stamp set that I recently purchased from Altenew called Potted Plants. I did not inherit my mother's green thumb, so stamping plants instead of actually potting them is about the only way I'm guaranteed to keep them alive! Altenew has some of the most beautiful and realistic looking stamps and I have come to love their products very much. Their layering flower stamps like this hyacinth and these Peruvian Lilies are among other personal favorites of mine.
Here is the Potted Plants bundle by Altenew that I used to create these cards. The bundle is both the stamp set and coordinating die, but you can purchase each individually as well.
The base of this A2 sized card is made from Crumb Cake cardstock. Using the Papertrey Ink Mix and Mat Plaid Die, I cut the frame from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. Using Memento Tuxedo black ink, I stamped the sentiment at the top of the card. On a separate sheet of white cardstock I stamped the three plants in Garden Green ink and Pear Pizzazz ink. Using the coordinating dies, I cut out each plant. I stamped the two plant pots in Versamark ink and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder. I die cut the plant pots using the coordinating die. I adhere the plants and plant pots to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension.
For the second card, I created the base from Pear Pizazz cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in the lower left corner using Intense-ified black ink. I die cut the black frame from Basic Black cardstock. Sorry - I can't recall who makes this die! I cut a sheet of white cardstock to fit behind the window frame and stamped the plants in Garden Green ink and Pear Pizzazz ink. Lastly I stamped the palm plant in Pear Pizzazz ink and die cut it using the coordinating dies. I stamped the plant pot in Versamark ink and heat embossed it in white embossing powder. I die cut the plant pot and then I adhered this palm plant to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend friends!
