Stampin’ Up! Basket of Succulents for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 

I used the Oh So Succulent Bundle from Stampin’ Up! to create my Basket of Succulents card to share with you today.

Here is the sketch for the week:

Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 

I started by adhering two different patterns of the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper to a panel of Sweet Sugarplum Glimmer Paper (only available during Sale-A-Bration!).  Next, I wrapped a length of Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon around both panels adhering it with Tear & Tape Adhesive.

Then, I sponged a Lace Doily with some Sweet Sugarplum ink, cut it in half and adhered it to the left center.  I pulled out my Window Box Thinlets and created the basket bottom in Tip Top Taupe card stock with the scalloped die.  To add some interest to the basket, I also die cut the other flat die which created the strips used to make the ridges on the basket.

All of the succulents in the basket were stamped twice because this is a two-step stamp set.  The first stamping was full strength, which created the outline of the succulent.  The second layer was stamped off once onto scrap paper before actually stamping onto my outlined succulent.  I used combinations of Old Olive, Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum and Calypso Coral inks.  The Happy Mother’s Day sentiment was stamped in Versa Mark and sprinkled with White Emboss Powder and heat embossed.  I used the small banner die from the Popcorn Box Thinlets to cut it out.

I used part of the sentiment from Remarkable You for the inside of my card.  (The word And at the beginning of the stamp was left off.)  A few more succulents were added to the bottom along with another strip of the Succulent Garden DSP.  

All of the products used to create this card as well as the card stock cuts in inches will be at the end of the post.  


 

Now, I hope you’ll head on over to Kristi’s blog to see what she has created for today:

Stampin’ Up! Window Shopping Thanks for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday

 

I paired up Window Shopping and Oh So Succulent from Stampin’ Up! for my share for the Blog Hop for today.  

 

Shopping

 

We are playing with a color challenge, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Old Olive this week.  

 

Shopping

I started with a panel of Tip Top Taupe and adhered a smaller panel of Succulent Garden (the floral pattern) to it with liquid glue.  Next, I took a panel of the checked Tip Top Taupe Succulent Garden DSP the same width as my floral pattern and marked it lightly with a pencil 1″ up from the bottom of the left side and 2 1/2″ on the right side.  Then, I lined up my pencil points on my Stampin Trimmer and cut it on the diagonal. It was adhered then to the other panel with glue.  

Shopping

 

I pulled out my Tip Top Taupe Mini Striped Ribbon, cut a length, added some Tear & Tape and adhered it on the diagonal where the two panels met.  I stamped the sentiment from Window Shopping in Tip Top Taupe ink onto a pre-cut square of Whisper White card stock, then cleaned off my stamp.  Next, I stamped the sentiment once again in Mint Macaron on another piece of Whisper White.  The center part of the sentiment was all I wanted , so I used the banner die from the Gift Cards Envelope & Trims Framelits to cut it out and layer it over the original sentiment.  

 

Shopping

 

My sentiment panel was then framed with a panel of Tip Top Taupe.  I pulled out one of the Lace Doilies and glued it to the front of the card.  Dimensionals were added to the back of the sentiment panel and I wound some loops of Silver Metallic Thread around them before popping it onto the front of the card.  Finally, I added a few Pearls for some bling.

 

Shopping

Originally, I had planned to add some of the succulents from Oh So Succulent, to the front of the card, but decided against it.  So, they were added to the inside.  They are two-step stamps, so the inside of the succulent is stamped in Mint Macaron and the outside stamp is Old Olive.  

A complete list of supplies and card stock cuts in inches will be at the end of my post.  


 

Now, on to the rest of the hop and to see what Kristi has created for us today!

Oh So Succulent for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Hop

Happy Inkin' Thursday

 

I used the Stampin’ Up! Oh So Succulent Bundle to create my card for today’s Blog Hop.  

 

Oh So Succulent

 

Here is our sketch this week:

Happy Inkin' Thursday Sketch

I started with a panel from the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a panel of Sweet Sugarplum card stock with liquid glue.  Next, I cut two strips of a coordinating pattern from the Succulent Garden DSP and adhered them to the lower half of the front panel.  

 

Oh So Succulent

 

I then die cut the large Sweet Sugarplum succulent with the Succulent Framelits and stamped the ends with Whisper White Craft ink.  Before I assembled the flower, I curled the petals with my bone folder.  The Oh So Succulent stamp set is designed for 2-step stamping.  One of the images fills in the center and the other outlines the flower.  For the Mint Macaron succulent, I stamped the center in Mint Macaron and then the outline in Old Olive.  The smaller succulent in stamped in Calypso Coral and the others in Old Olive inks.  I used a sentiment from Dragonfly Dreams and stamped it in Versa Mark and heat embossed it in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  My banner was cut with a die from the Gift Card Envelopes & Trims Framelits.

 

Oh So Succulent

 

For some reason, my camera would not focus when I tried to take a photo of the whole inside of my card, so I am only showing a portion of it!  I stamped the lower left corner with images from Oh So Succulent using Calypso Coral, Mint Macaron, Old Olive and Sweet Sugarplum inks.  

Card stock cuts in inches and all of the products used to create my card will be at the end of my post.
