Simple Succulents

You will find the Succulents products on page 39 of the new January - June 2021 Mini Catalog (I giggle when I say "mini" since it has 90 pages of goodness!). This card uses the Simple Succulents stamp set, the Potted Succulents Dies, and from Sale-A-Bration a little of the Oh So Ombre paper (FREE with a $50 order!).


To start my card off, I used a card base (4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2 inches) of Very Vanilla. Next I used the beautiful large background die that I just love. In these next photo you can see the die and the piece it cuts out, followed by a photo of the background on my card base. I cut mine from Soft Seafoam cardstock.



Once my background was in place, I cut a small piece of the Granny Apple Green pattern from the Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper 6x6 Pack to anchor my focal point. From there I stamped and colored the Pot and Succulents. I was experimenting with coloring techniques. I stamped my image in Granny Apple Green ink, then used the Wink of Stella pen to 'bleed' the color into the image. After I had a good base color down, I came back in with my Blender Pen and more ink to spruce it up a bit.


The flower pot is stamped on Crumb Cake cardstock and colored in with Merry Merlot ink and a Water Painter.


Here you can see as I start layering my focal image on the background. The flower pot is flat on my background, and the rest is popped up with Dimensionals.


The fun thing about this set of dies (there are 13 Dies in the Potted Succulents Dies) is that one die covers a whole card front, four are various labels that work with the stamp set phrases or - of course - with ANY stamps you already have, two are extra plant pieces (I used the skinny branch to accent my card) and the rest cut out the images in the stamp set. Can you tell I love these dies!??! Awesome.


And the last thing I added were some metallic pearls.


Thanks so much for stopping by. If you would like a catalog send me an email (susie@kalantarian.net). If you want to purchase any of the supplies I've used in this card, they are all linked below.


I've included both the regular Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine and the Mini since it is now available - yeah!
