I have been stamping for 23 years, 15 of them as a Stampin’ Up demonstrator. In all of those years, I have accumulated hundreds of flower stamps, but never a succulent. Because of my flower stamp stash, I tend to overlook new flower stamps unless it’s something new and different. When I opened the 2017 Occasions Catalog and saw the beautiful Oh So Succulent set, I knew I had to get it. It has so many different stamps and framelits that the possibilities are endless and I have had so much fun creating with them. Succulents seem to be popping up all over the place these days, so it’s definitely trendy and I am enjoying them! I even went so far as to decorate my guest bathroom with them!
Beautiful, Oh So Succulent
This card was one that I made for my Creative Card Design classes in January and I used the same color scheme that was featured in the Occasions Catalog. I added a dark green panel in Always Artichoke as the background, so that the succulent colors would really pop. The sentiment was embossed in white on the Rich Razzleberry panel. The iridescent sequins were leftovers from a Paper Pumpkin kit.
Speaking of Paper Pumpkin…
If you’re not familiar with Paper Pumpkin, it is a paper crafting kit that arrives as a monthly surprise in your mailbox. It always includes a stamp set, ink spot(s), adhesives and all of the components for that months project. Every month it’s something different and always comes as a surprise.
