Today’s card has minimal stamping but lots of fun paper and an embellishment, it’s the perfect combination to make quick and pretty cards. The Bloom Where You’re Planted Suite was on the top of my must-haves when the new annual catalog was released. What’s the difference between a Suite Collection and a bundle? A Suite Collection includes all of the coordinating products for a particular bundle. A bundle typically includes the stamp set and the dies or a coordinating paper punch only. That being said, The Bloom Where You’re Planted Suite includes:
- the Plentiful Plants Bundle (Plentiful Plants photopolymer stamps and the Perfect Plants Dies) purchase both at a 10% discount
- Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper (12″ X 12″)
- Paper Lattice
Here’s my minimal stamping card. The only thing I stamped was the thank you sentiment, the rest of the elements were die cut from either the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper (DSP) or from cardstock.
The following examples can be found on page 80 in the Annual Catalog.
Here’s a peak at the Bloom Where You’re Planted 12″ X 12″ Designer Series Paper
You can modify the look of the Macramé plant hanger by just snipping a couple of pieces from the die cut to create a different plant hanger. See the example below.
I used Cinnamon Cider cardstock for my card base and then a 4″X5 1/4″ Gray Granite cardstock layer. I wanted to create the effect of a lattice for plants affixed to a brick wall so I took a piece of the Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP and embossed it with the Brick and Mortar 3D embossing folder. The flower pots and the plants were die cut out of the designer series paper. Some of the dies cut out the pots and plant images from the 12’X12″ Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper perfectly. That’s how easy it was to make today’s card.

Well, I hope you like today’s card. I probably love the Plentiful Plants Bundle because it reminds me of when I taught macramé classes back in the early 1980’s. Macramé was extremely popular back then and it seems to be on trend now. It’s like the adage, “everything old is new again.”
Have a great day!
