An Oh So Succulent Happy Mother’s Day Card

The Oh So Succulent stamp set and the Succulent Garden DSP combine to make this soft and sweet Mother's Day card. I also used the Layering Ovals Framelits, the Stitched Shapes Framelits, the Bunch of Banners Framelits, Banners for You stamp set, and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. All by Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

Gorgeous. Stunning. Amazing. You know, all those good words. They’re what I use to describe the Succulent Garden Suite of products in the 2017 Occasions Catalog (pages 20-21.) Even the word Succulent sounds so rich and beautiful. I used the Oh So Succulent stamp set and the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper (DSP) to create today’s card. It was my swap card at a team meeting I attended Saturday. You can see more of the team swaps here. Scroll down to bottom of today’s post to see all the products in this suite.   Here’s what I made: The Tip Top Taupe looks a …

  Happy Valentine’s Day, Sweet Stampers! I was planning to post another Valentine card today, but then I thought, well, most people probably have their cards made already.

I mean, Valentine’s Day and Easter have quite a few things in common. To name just a …

Here’s what I made:   Here’s what I did: The card base is Thick Whisper White CS, with a layer of Basic Black CS, and  layer of Sending Love DSP. I used the Layering Circles Framelits to cut three CS circles: one in Whisper White, one scalloped in Real Red, and one scalloped in Basic Black.
