Ever since I started making cards 15 years ago, I have always been all about making the most of your supplies. And nothing makes me happier than being able to mix and match products.
I recently bought Stampin’ Up!’s Simply Succulents bundle. And when I saw the flower pot that came as a part of this bundle, I knew it would work perfectly with the flower arrangements from the Jar of Flowers stamp set.
Stampin’ Up! Canada | Jar of Flowers Stamp Set
Now I’ll be honest…
I bought this stamp set because of the jars.
I’ve never been all that keen about stamp images that consist of big bunches of flowers. Especially smaller flowers like with this stamp set. And that’s really because I don’t usually have the patience to color them all in.
But whenever I buy a stamp set, it’s with the commitment to myself, that I will try and use most, if not all, of the images. So today’s card, was in keeping with that.
Stampin’ Up! Canada | Jar Punch
One of the things I like about this set is that it comes with a coordinating punch.
So once you’ve stamped the jar, you can quickly and easily punch it out.
Now I didn’t actually use the punch for my card, as I didn’t use the jar. However, I wanted you to see it, so you would know your options.
Stampin’ Up! Canada | Simply Succulent Bundle
Now this bundle, was totally love at first sight. And it was one of the first things I ordered from the January to June 2021 mini catalogue.
I loved the planter, and I adore succulents. Not to mention the cover plate die. I’ve always loved that type of die.
For this card, I used both the planter (and die) and the cover plate die.
Stampin’ Up! Canada | Jar of Flowers | You’ve Been on my Mind Card
Do you know that this card actually started with the cover plate die from the Simply Succulents bundle?
I had die cut the cover plate die out of white cardstock, and then layered it onto a white cardstock panel, because I was planning on using it for a card I created using the succulents bundle.
However, when I stuck the die cut cover plate, I misaligned it. So I couldn’t use it for the card I had intended. But, I didn’t want to waste it, so I cut it down into the rectangular piece you see here.
Now initially I was going to just use images from the Simply Succulent bundle, but then I started thinking about the Jar of Flowers stamp set. I bought that stamp set over 6 months ago, but haven’t used it. So I decided that it was time!

Stampin’ Up! Canada | You’ve Been on My Mind Instructions
Step 1: Score the 4 ¼” x 11″ piece of Basic White Thick cardstock at 5 ½” and then fold it in half with your bone folder to create your card base.
Step 2: Stamp the floral image onto a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Stamp the planter image onto a scrap piece of Basic White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
Step 3: Color in the images using Stampin’ Blends. For the planter, I used Light and Dark Cajun Craze and Light Calypso Coral. For the sunflowers, I used Light Daffodil Delight and Dark Mango Melody. For the sunflower centers, I used Light and Dark Cinnamon Cider. For the purple flowers, I used Light Purple Posy, Light and Dark Blackberry Bliss, and Dark Highland Heather. For the pink flowers, I used Light Flirty Flamingo and Light Magenta Madness. For the leaves, I used Light Granny Apple Green.
Step 4: Die cut the planter using the Potted Succulents dies and a die cutting machine. Fussy cut the floral image, leaving a narrow cardstock border, using paper snips.
Step 5: Apply a piece of adhesive sheet on the back of a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” piece of Basic White CS. Die-cut the succulent cover plate image from the cardstock using the Potted Succulents dies and a die cutting machine. Stick the die-cut image onto a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” piece of Basic White CS. Die-cut a rectangle (2 ⅝” x 4″) from this piece of cardstock using the fourth largest die from the larger rectangle nested set in the Stitched Rectangles dies and a die cutting machine.
Step 6: Rub an embossing powder tool over a scrap piece of Basic Black cardstock. Stamp the greeting onto the cardstock using Whisper White Craft ink. Sprinkle white embossing powder over the greeting. Tap off the excess embossing powder. Heat this with a heat tool until the embossing powder has melted. Trim the greeting into a greeting strip that is about ⅝” x 2 ⅜”.
Step 7: Cut a scrap piece of gold foil cardstock to the same size as your die cut stitched rectangle using a paper trimmer. In this case, my gold foil cardstock is about 2 ⅝” x 4″. Stick the die cut stitched rectangle onto the gold foil cardstock, offsetting it, using double-sided adhesive.
Step 8: Dry emboss the 4″ x 5 ½” piece of Basic White cardstock using the Subtle 3D embossing folder and a die cutting machine. Trim this piece down so that it is 4″ x 5 ¼” using a paper trimmer.
Step 9: Center and stick the dry embossed panel onto the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Step 10: Stick the matted die cut stitched rectangle onto the card, about ½” up from the bottom and ¼” in from the right edge, using double-sided adhesive.
Step 11: Stick the planter onto the card using liquid glue.
Step 12: Stick the floral image onto the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Step 13: Stick the greeting onto the card, about ½” up from the bottom of the die-cut rectangle panel, using mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Step 14: Embellish the card using some rhinestone basic jewels. You’re done!
