Seed Packets 
I first used the Seed Packets (and Garden Bunny) stamps to make some labels for garden pots.  If it ever stops being cold and wet we may be able to plant some things.  The wooden stirrers were stamped in Stazon (no orange for the carrots!) and the sticky labels were stamped in Memento black and coloured with Copics so I hope they hold!
This project (again using both Seed Packets and Garden Bunny plus some Spellbinders dies) is going to be a Birthday card for our Brother in Law who doesn't seem to care what the weather is like when he wants to spend time in the garden. I used pencils to colour the images and Distress ink for the dirt.

This last card uses the Seed Packets set with the set called Love Remains. I have used both the rose and word Roses from that set. To make this card I stamped and embossed the yellow panel and then used bleach to remove the colour before using watercolour pencils to add colour back to the rose and leaves. A spellbinders die was used to cut the heart and the sentiment Plant Some Love is from the Seed Packets set.

Please hop along with us! You have a chance to win one of the above stamp sets!

  1. Adorable! What a perfect way to get the garden started.

  2. Love all your projects, but the fact you thought to use a rose for rose seeds just blows me away....brilliant!

  3. Cute ideas for this set. I like them all. TFS.

  4. Wow!!!! What terrific projects to inspire!!! Love the pots!!! I should make a few sticks for my DH, as he is the gardener around here and has started some seeds inside. CUTE idea! Pretty cards! Love the inside with the dirt and plants growing!!! Too cute! LOVE the rose on the seed packet!!! SO many fun ways to use these sets!

  5. Real cute ideas. Love the added rose. SHows you could make flower seed packet plant sticks too.

  6. Very cool pot makers Janine! Love the pretty cards and clever using the rose on the one ;) I really like the inside on the one!

  7. Gorgeous work! I love the markers that you made, do you think they will be waterproof? I'd love to know. I also like that you used the seed packet with a flower stamp. My daughter wasn't keen on the veggie seeds and told me that I should have made a flower seed package.

  8. Awesome plant markers that you made, now you are all set to plant a garden. Your card are both very pretty and I love how you used the rose on the seed packet. Looks like your mojo is working over time.

  9. Janine,
    What wonderful plant markers and pots - I think this might be a really fun gift for someone too! Both of your cards are really lovely! I love the pretty colors in the BG on your first card. Your second card - wow, uses one of my fav sets - beautiful!

  10. Janine- you were one busy lady creating all the projects for this stamp set.

  11. Love how you put the rose on the seed packet! When we lived in Colorado, I'd be out in my garden at the end of February, pruning my roses! I'd get the first glorious flush of roses in late May! Your veggie garden labels are so cute! Love the idea of putting them on the plain plastic pots!

  12. Great looking cards and your garden labels turned out nice too...well done

  13. Perfect cards and project Janine!!! Very creative and great job! TFS

  14. FAbulous gardening projects!
