Bloom Where You're Planted

Wednesday 30 March 2022 United Kingdom

The Bloom Where You're Planted DSP from Stampin' Up! is perfect for fussy cutting! 

There are also lots of images you can die cut with the Perfect Plant dies.

If you know someone who is a plant lover or a keen horticulturist, then you could make the perfect card for them with this patterned paper that is retiring imminently.

I as type this, the  Bloom Where You're Planted patterned paper is still available and has been reduced to £6.45 - what a bargain!

But please don't delay. This paper could sell out at any time between now and when it retires on 2nd May 2022. 

Check it out in my online shop here.

I have used Evening Evergreen for my card base.

Evening Evergreen is one of my favourite in colours from the 2021 - 2023 In Colour collection. In recent years my favourite colours have predominantly been pastel colours so to find a dark colour that I adore is fantastic. 

The patterned paper I chose for the background heavily features this Evening Evergreen. To break up the dark shades and to add some lightness, I added a Basic White layer.

You may be wondering what die I used for the Basic White label? It is from the Scalloped Contour dies!

I've simply cut the scalloped edges off. The curvy edges did not work with this card design but I loved the stitching detail (which is different to the Stitched Rectangle dies) so I adapted it to make it work.

I grabbed my paper snips to fussy cut out a selection of plants from the patterned paper. There are so many choices but I liked the balance of adding in two terracotta plants pots. Like I mentioned, some of the dies fit some of the plants on the patterned paper but it was easy enough to fussy cut them.

The sentiment has been stamped in Cinnamon Cider using the 'To a dear friend' stamp from the Plentiful Plants stamp set. This ties in nicely to the colour of the plant pots, again a balance that I like to create when carefully selecting colours and features.

To finish my card, I added a subtle scattering of In Colour Jewels in Evening Evergreen.
