Sweet Succulent Flowers

Oh So Succulents is one of those stamp sets that took us all by storm in the Occasions Mini this year, and it will have to be a short storm, as it is retiring. So sad! The framelits may already be sold out, but the stamp set will be available through May 22nd for sure, and while supplies last until May 31st. That means I need to hurry up and share the rest of the projects I have been hoarding with this set, lol!

I made this a birthday card, but it really says Mother's Day to me. How about you? It would be really easy to use the Mother's Day sentiment in the set instead of the birthday one.
OK, here is the how-to:
  • Take a 4"x5¼" panel of watercolor paper, wipe with the Embossing Biddy, and stamp the succulent/flower images all over in Versamark. Then White heat emboss them. 
  • Use an Aqua-painter to color the images in Watermelon Wonder and Crushed Curry. Then do a light wash around the flowers with very dilute Smoky Slate, and do some light Smoky Slate spatters across the panel. Stitch around the panel with sewing machine and white thread.
  • Adhere watercolor panel to a Watermelon Wonder card base.
  • Take a scrap of Watermelon Wonder, wipe with the Embossing buddy, stamp the sentiment in Versamark, and White heat emboss. Then die cut with the Lots of Labels framelit and trim down. 
  • Apply dimensionals to the back of the sentiment piece, remove the backing, and stick a nest of Silver Metallic thread to the back. 
  • Diecut a Vellum flower, or succulent framelit if you have them. Tuck it behind the sentiment piece and add a glue dot, or an adhesive of your choice, to the back of the velum where it will be hidden, then stick it to the card front.  All done!
 Ok, one more picture. Because I have it. And because I took the time to edit it, darn it! 😉😜
