You Touched My Heart - Plentiful Plants - Casually Crafting Design Team Blog Hop July 2021


Hello and welcome back. Today I have a card for the Casually Crafting Design Team July 2021 Blog Hop - Sketch Challenge.


So who are we?

The Casually Crafting Design Team are a group of Independent Stampin' Up!® demonstrators from around the world that want to share our love of crafting with you all. We all love simple and easy cards, so you will see cards that are ideally suited for beginners and casual crafters. Sometimes we will also be showing stepped up versions for the more avid crafter.

We will sharing what we love every 3rd Saturday of the month. Make sure to check out the rest of the Design Team's creative projects using the links below. 

For this month, I decided to share a card using the 'Plentiful Plants' stamp set as well as the Bloom Where You're Planted Designer Series Paper and the Paper Lattice from the Blooms Where You're Planted Suite from the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue from Stampin' Up!® and combined it with this months Sketch Challenge.

I used techniques such as stamping and a lot of fussy cutting. This is a perfect card for a beginner card maker as there was very little stamping.

The brief this month was to use the above sketch, which I decided to turn upside down to give the appearance of shelving for my plants.

Instructions:

- Use a piece of Evening Evergreen card A4/Letter cut in half lengthwise and folded.

- Use a smaller piece of Soft Succulent and stamp leaves along the edges from the Plentiful Plants stamp set with Soft Succulent ink. Attach to the card base with Liquid Glue. Layer a piece of the Bloom Where You're Planted on to the Soft Succulent card and attach with Liquid Glue. Attach the Paper Lattice which is part of the suite to the card using dots of Liquid Glue.

- Cut three smaller strips of Cinnamon Cider and one larger strip and attach to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals to create the appearance of shelves.

- Fussy cut the pots and plants from the Bloom Where You're Planted DSP and attach to each other with Liquid Glue, then attach to the card on the Cinnamon Cider strips using Stampin' Dimensionals.

- Stamp a sentiment from the Plentiful Plants stamp set using Cinnamon Cider ink onto Basic White card. Attach to the largest strip of Cinnamon Cider card with Liquid Glue. Attach one of the fussy cut plants with Stampin' Dimensionals to the card.

Measurements:

- Evening Evergreen base A4/Letter cut in half lengthwise and folded

- Soft Succulent: A4 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"/ 14.4 x 10 cm or Letter 4" x 5 1/4"
