Hello and welcome. Today's card features the 'Oh So Succulent' bundle from the new Occasions catalogue. This bundle is so gorgeous and can make the most amazing succulent garden either as a card or a 3D project. I was greatly inspired to try out the wonderful colours from the first official Colour Inkspiration challenge. Check out the summery bright pastel colours.
I have used all 6 colours and the Oh So Succulent bundle was a perfect match to use all these lovely colours. The Colour INKspiration is on facebok take part and be inspired. You can upload your creation here.
I have made a shaker card using both the stitched shapes circles and layering circles framelits. The frame is created by nesting both framelits so that the faux stitched is showing. The frame edge also allows to cover up the foam strips underneath. Tempting Turquoise cardstock has been used in the background and has been die cut using the matching layering circles framelits.
The goodies inside, are a combination of silver and gold sequins from the metallic assortment and the clear mica flakes as a filler and acts as a sand base for the succulents display hehe.
The sentiment used is from 'Everyday Tags' also from the new Occasions catalgoue. I love the font and this sentiments says it all, the colours and the occasion that the card is made for - to Enjoy!
I have stamped the sentiment using cotton white opaque Stazon ink, just like black Stazon ink and is perfect for stamping in window sheets. It doesn't give a crisp impression on the window sheet and left some gaps and have later filled them in using a white gel pen.
The succulents are such a delight to use and it's a two step stamping and being a photolymer stamp makes is to place and line up. It also has the coordinating Succulent framelits dies which makes it a breeze to cut out. I have used Memento tuxedo black ink for the outlines and have used all the colours from the Colour Inkspirations: Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum, So Saffron, Peekaboo Peach and Tempting Turquoise. It's so quick and easy just stamp all the images first and die cut them all out. Taking a photo of the layout also helps to later assemble them back together again, but as you can see the creative process can take you to other places...
This is the final card.
Inside the card, I have used the Happy Birthday sentiment from the bundle and have white heat embossed it on Tempting Turquoise cardstock and die cut the fish tail end using the banners framelits. The succulent garden formation added to best advantage, utilising all the colours in the challenge.
I hope you have enjoyed and found inspiration. I would love to hear your thoughts. The Oh So Succulent bundle is truly amazing and a delight to use.
