Good morning! Today I'm using the Plentiful Plants stamp set and the Perfect Plants dies. I'm so happy these products were carried over to the new annual catalog. Even better, I have a downloadable tutorial for you as well. Here's my card.
Plentiful Plants Tutorial
by Jo Anne Hewins
I've used three panels of Stitched Rectangles to fit across this card front and embossed them with the Hives 3D embossing folder. The designer paper across the top and bottom are from the new Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper colored in with blends.

Designer Paper: Perfectly Penciled DSP (159244)
Card Base: Thick Basic White 5 ½ x 8 ½, scored and folded at 4 ¼
Cardstock #2: Basic White 3 ½ x 6 for panels on front, scrap
Designer Paper #1: 2 strips ¾ x 5 ½
Use Bone Folder to burnish the fold of the base.
Cut out the panels for the front of the card using the 3rd smallest of the Rectangle Stitched dies (largest group of dies). Emboss all using the Hives 3D EF. These rectangles fit perfectly across the card base.
Color the strips of designer paper with the Light Parakeet Party blend. The paper itself already has darker markings. Glue these one at the very top and one at the bottom of the front of the card front.
Panel #1: The pot is stamped in Evening Evergreen, The large leafy plant is stamped in Parakeet Party. The next plant is stamped in Cajun Craze. Add some of the Evening Evergreen color directly to the stamp with a sponge dauber. Cut all pieces with the Perfect Plants dies. The large leafy plant is placed well above the pot so that the long plant will cover the bottom. This allows the plant to take up more space. Add all with dimensionals or the mini dimensionals whichever fits.
Panel #2: The pot is stamped in Cajun Craze. The largest leafy plant is stamped in Parakeet Party. Evening Evergreen is added with sponge dauber directly to the stamp. Tall plant is stamped in Pear Pizzazz. Cut all out with dies. Add a Linen Thread bow with a glue dot. The leafy plant is turned a little on its side. Most is glued. Add the pot with dimensionals and pull the lower leaf over the edge of the pot. The tall plant is added with dimensionals.
Panel #3: The pot is stamped in Cajun Craze. The smaller leafy plant is stamped in Pear Pizzazz. Cut out the plant in the dies 3 times from Old Olive card stock. Add the leafy plant a little above the pot. Make sure the Old Olive plants will hide the bottom. The pot is added with dimensionals. Place 2 of the card stock plants in the pot. Use glue dots. The third plant is slid behind the pot at an angle and then folded over. Secure with a glue dot.
Glue all three panels to the front of the card.
Stamp the saying from the Plentiful Plants stamp set in Memento Black on a ½ inch piece of Basic White. Trim ends. Add with mini dimensionals at each end.
Add some of the 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots.
