September 2021 Stampset of the Month

September 2021 Stampset of the Month

Plentiful Plants




Plentiful Plants Suite nd be found starting on pg. 80 in the main catalog.


I really love this set as it is timeless! And the paper! Ooo LaLa!


This month I will be including a half package of DSP along with the usual card pieces to make the cards. You will need to do a bit of cutting and fussy cutting! The DSP has great backgrounds on one side and a collection of pots, plants and potted plants. These images lend themselves to so many possibilities!

For the cards I chose, one has stamped images fussy cut. Another has fussy cut images. The last uses dies that are included in the Bundle offered by Stampin' Up!

I must repeat how I LOVE this Stampset!




I am offering two price points for this set.


Price A - $35

Included are 3 card kits with all materials to make 2 of each. 

Half a package of Bloom Where you are Planted DSP - you will cut the pieces and images you will need for your cards .

5 pieces of Paper Lattice ( you will use two on your cards)

And of course the Stampset - Plentiful Plants


Price B - $62

All of the above plus -

Perfect Plants Dies

This will also put you at a price point to choose a Sale-a-Bration item!
