Let Love Grow Layering Stencil & Clear Combo Set
The kit’s layering stencil and coordinating dies is designed so you can grow/stencil & cut a collection of houseplants super quick! I started by creating a collection of pots by stenciling all the pots in two-color combination:
- Collection 1: Poppy Seed & Sugar Cube
- Collection 2: Peaches n’ Cream & Raspberry Sorbet
- Collection 3: Oyster & Earl Grey
Then I created all the pretty greenery with two color combinations:
- Collection 1: Dill Pickle & Kiwi
- Collection 2: Cilantro & Dill Pickle
- Collection 3: Cilantro & Granny Smith
After I had all my stenciled pots and greenery, I used the coordinating dies to match-up the stenciled images and cut out all the pots and plants. Super Awesome to be able to line-up the die to the images and cut them out at the same time!!
You Grow Girl
I was going for a boho vibe with the gold and terracotta colors. I added Gold Foil to an Essentials Patterns Foil It Panel and cut it to 3 inches. For added texture, I added the panel to a sugar cube dotted diamond embossed panel. The potted plant was adhered to a wooden plant (Toffee Ink Blended) stand from the Let Love Grow die collection which adhered to the center of a Ridged Circle Stacklet. To finish the card, I added the doe cut “You Grow Girl” gold heat embossed sentiment and adhered the decorated panel to a Peaches N’ Cream cardbase.
Peace, Love, Plants
I went for a modern monochrome black and white vibe for this next card with a non-foiled Foil-It Essentials Pattern Background. I adhered all three plants to a Rounded and Ridged (in Earl Grey) Rectangle Stacklet Frame. To finish the card, I added the black and white embossed “peace, love, PLANTS” sentiment and adhered the decorated panel to a Licorice cardbase.
So very Frond of You
I can’t stop giggling over all the punny and cute houseplant sentiments in the Shelf Control Stamp set and love how the font looks when heat embossed with white embossing powder on Licorice cardstock.
I gathered several houseplants with different foliage colors and planters and adhered them with thin foam and liquid adhesive to a diagonal stitched thick mini slim sugar cube panel. I added the “so very Frond of you” sentiment with foam tape and adhered the decorated panel to a Tropical Punch cardbase.
So there we are friends, a collection of cards using the Love Grows Here Cardmaking Kit. Be sure to check out the Taylored Expressions Blog for more inspiration from the TE Creative Team. Thanks for stopping by and Big Paper Hugs!
