Hello! Today we are focusing on Succulents.
I am so excited to get to share this amazing stamp set as my focus post. I had so many ideas and today I have three cards that I would like to show you, starting with a bold panel. My original idea for this card was quite different and now I can’t even remember what it was even meant to look like, because when the idea of a Succulents panel took over that was it, I couldn’t focus on anything else until this one was made. So lots of masking and some simple copic colouring using the Succulent stamp set and a bold white embossed sentiment from Beautiful Lady and this card came together very quickly and just I had imagined (the second time).
My second card is very clean & simple, do you remember the retro macrame plant hangers? Well, I have a memory of my mother making them and hanging plants about our house. Originally I made a version of this card using some twine but changed focus a little when I got the idea to use the Modern Deco Alpha to stamp my own ‘macrame hanger’. The potted plant came from the Succulents stamp set and I added a simple black sentiment from Thinking of You, there are so many beautiful sentiments and fonts in this set.
For my final card I decided to get out my Kuretake watercolours and masked out the Succulents without the pots to create my little desert scene. I popped it up on a card front and added some wood sequins and a sprinkle, then finally a sentiment from Sketchy Cities America 2.
I’ve had so much fun with this Succulents stamp set and I can’t wait to see what you create with it too, I just know you will have as much fun as me! Hope you have a great and crafty day,
