Happy about Pretty Perennials

Pretty Perennials is a new stamp/die bundle in the Jan-Jun Mini catalog. At first, I thought it was a pretty set of flowers and did I really need another set of flowers. But then, as what usually happens, I saw something on Pinterest, or really looked at the samples in the catalog and decided I actually did need another flower stamp and die bundle in my craft room.

Honestly, though, it was the Happy stamp that sold me. I just loved the font and all the things I could do with it either stamped, or embossed, or snipped. Who doesn’t need more Happy.


I made this card casing from the sample shown on page 77 of the catalog. In that sample, all of the elements are stamped then die cut with the 25 dies included in the set. That is a lot of die-cutting and I was thinking of using this card in a stamp class which makes that much die-cutting a bit tedious. So, I changed it up and stamped most and die cut a few.

Create a Pretty Perennial Template

Here is the ‘template’ I created for my class so they could have an idea of placement for the background stamps. Some used it, and some did not which is exactly what I wanted to happen. They were all really pleased with the color combo and admitted they wouldn’t have put those colors together at home.

The class did stamp and die cut the two large flowers as well as the Pretty Perennial detail overlay and popped them up on a dimensional. The photopolymer stamps made it easy to stamp the sentiments on a piece of 3×1-1/2 basic white cardstock.
