Stampin Up Happy Inkin’ Thursday “Oh So Succulent” Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today I opened up one of my new bundles from the Occasions Catalog.  My share is using the “Oh So Succulent” Bundle and what can I say, I love it!  From the paper to the stamps and dies, it is going to get used for lots of cards.  It fits perfectly with our color challenge colors of Old Olive, Mint Macaroon and Tip Top Taupe.


Here is the color challenge:

To make the succulent flower:

  • Cut out 5 mint macaroon flowers from the “Oh So Succulent” framelits
  • With a sponge dauber shade the center and petals with Tip Top Taupe
  • With another sponge dauber shade the tips with Old Olive
  • Curl the petals with your fingers or bone folder to give them dimension
  • Stack your petals with a dimensional in-between the 5th and 4th petals and 4th and 3rd petals.  Attach the rest of the petals with glue
  • Add a large pearl to the center
  • Make a bow using the striped Tip Top Taupe ribbon

More Details:

The Sentiment:

  • Using your Old Olive and Tip Top Taupe markers ink up the sentiment from the Balloon Adventures stamp set using the ink to rubber technique.
  • Stamp your image towards the bottom of your art piece
  • Ink up the two smallest petals just like the big flower and glue together and attach to your art piece
  • Add a pearl to the center
  • The art piece panels are attached with dimensionals
