Oh So Succulent: Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome to another Artisan Design Team blog hop! We are a group of demonstrators chosen by Stampin' Up! from around the globe to create projects and inspire you. And hopefully we are doing or job well 😁

This time we are using the Oh So Succulent stamp set from the Occasions Mini. It is not going to be in the new Annual Catalog, so if you want it, get it now!

If you are following along in order, then you just arrived from Germany and Sylwia Schreck's blog. So beautiful, right?!

This stamp set has been used for so many gorgeous flowers and succulents, it was a little hard to come up with something somewhat original. One day it came to me that the images could be used to create bubbles and an underwater scene. So that is what I did with this ensemble of projects.

  • I used some embossed resist here with the bubbly image embossed in Clear embossing powder. 
  • After embossing, I taped the watercolor panel to a board and sponged an ombre effect starting with Bermuda bay at the bottom, Pool Party in the middle, and Soft Sky at the top. 
  • Next I spritzed the panel with water just enough to make the ink start to blend, then dried with the heat tool.
  • I stamped some of the succulent images in Pool party along the bottom of the panel.
  • The sentiment in stamped in Archival Black on vellum, then the strip is trimmed off and dovetailed.  
  • Stitch around the panel, attaching the sentiment strip to the panel with the stitching.
  • More succulents were stamped in Bermuda Bay on Bermuda Bay, then die cut and adhered to the panel with diemnsionals. 
  • Add a few Rhinetones.
  • Adhere panel to a Soft Sky cardbase
  • Stamp the succulent images in Soft Sky and the sentiment in Archival Black on the inside panel. All done!
I made this a Mother's Day card. Mother's Day in the US is fast approaching, by the way. Are you ready?

 How about a closer look at this one?

The bag topper here is sponged and stamped with Soft Sky, and more of the same embellishing as the card.

This sweet little box/basket just requires trimming off some of the flaps on one of the two pieces cut out. And the stamping is similar to the bag topper.

I hope you enjoyed this set of projects! And if you started somewhere in the middle of this hop, be sure to click on to Allison Okamitsu's blog! There will be loads more ideas to see. 😀
