Wall of Succulents

I have been wanting to create with my newest succulent dies for a few weeks. Today I was inspired!

The succulents are made with Lawn Fawn plant-a-succulent die set. I made these over the last several weeks and they were sitting in an bowl waiting to be used. I needed the slimline size to fit the three groupings with different faces together. This means my brick embossing folder would not fit, so I had to run it through 2 times trying to line up the bricks. I was close but the recipient will not notice. The greeting came from a Power Poppy set called Sassy Succulents. I placed a strip of Kraft between the bricks and the sky. I like this card. I am considering sending this as a birthday/retirement card.

Pastel Embossing

I decided to emboss flowers today.

I chose the Country Floral embossing folder by Stampin Up to emboss and color. It is a 3D folder so it has a lot of dimension. I embossed on Ranger Watercolor Paper, then proceeded to add color. I used Gina K Designs ink with a blender brush. I did come back and add a bit more color with pencils taking the pigment directly from the pencil with water. I chose a sentiment from Stippled Flowers from Gina K Designs. I added a bit of ribbon and a few gems.

I found my inspiration for the colors by searching the folder on Google. I found a SU demonstrator who shared exactly which colors she used and the card recipe. Her name is Cindy. Thank you Cindy for the inspiration and helpful blog post.

Letters Hello

I put my thinking cap on to create a card for Gina K Designs March challenge.

The envelopes came from Timeless Beauty, cut out with matching dies. The word hello came from Skeleton Leaves. The greeting came from Anemone Wishes. I colored the envelopes with Copic markers in an array of colors, like the envelopes Gina K sells in her shop. I found an embossing folder to give texture to the cardstock. I made an A2 sized card. This was a fun challenge. I haven’t made a border with die cut images before, so this a enjoyable.
