Die Cuts from many sets of Stampin' Up! Dies create a Tranquil Coastal Planter Greeting Card


  • Stampin' Up! Splendid Day Suite for tranquil greeting cards
  • Unboxing video of August 2022 Sweet Sunflowers Paper Pumpkin Kit
  • Upcoming Live Classes - August 25 & August 27, 2022
One more card in my Splendid Day Suite Series today that features this Suite from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog.  This card features one of the Soft Sea Foam foil prints from the Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack.  I used a number of different dies from different sets to create the different layers on my card.   The dies I used included Splendid Stems Dies, Rectangle Stitched Dies, Stylish Shapes Dies, Heron Dies and Chic Dies. Each of these added a different texture or element that created the unique look on this card.  It also show cases how well different Stampin' Up! products work together, which I've mentioned before.    I used a Soft Sea Foam and Basic white them on this card for the die cuts.  I used sentiments from the Heron Habitat Stamp Set that complimented the clean elements on this card.  I used an accent of Gold Foil Sheets and Gold Festive Pearls to finish the card.   The cohesive elements in the many die cuts of coastal plants creates a tranquil, intricate card your loved ones will enjoy receiving.   Order the entire Splendid Day Suite before the end of August and earn a free Sale-A-Bration selection.

This card uses a basecard of Thick Basic White Cardstock.  Then a layer of one of the prints from the Splendid day Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack.  I used Rectangle Stitched Dies to create a Basic White Boarder and another piece of the Splendid Day Soft Sea Foam and White Print.

I then used dies from the Splendid Stems, the Chic Dies, and the Heron Dies to create layers of coastal elements in either Basic White Cardstock or Soft Sea Foam.  I used one accent element in Gold Foil Sheets.

I used the sentiment element from the Stylish Shapes to die cut a Soft Sa Foam tag.  I stamped sentiments in Soft Succulent ink from the Heron Habitat Stamp Set onto the top layer of my card.  I finished the card by scattering  Gold Festive Pearls around the face of the card.
