Blended Simply Succulents

Hello all! Glad to be back and sorry to be away so long. Life continues to get in the way of my stamping! 

Here is my first creation with the Simply Succulents set and coordinating die set, Potted Succulents. Hint: these are available in the current Mini Catalog as a *BUNDLE* (10% off!!) They carry over to the new catty, but *NOT* as a bundle. If you like them, get them BEFORE the end of June and save a few bucks!!

Inspired by a post that Stampin' Up! shared a while back on their Facebook Page.  * I can't figure out how to link it directly, but click the page link and scroll down to April 13. Who knows, you might find something else inspiring along the way :) Some days technology is a challenge!!

In the Mini, page 39 shows the Stamp Set and Dies. Again technology is failing me and I can't get a link to work to my store. Check the products below, maybe?  The key here is the large background "element" from the die set. Cut one out to use as a mask. Once you get it all punched out (another hint: use the Take Your Pick took and Die Brush Tip) adhere a light adhesive to secure over the piece of cardstock you want to color. Grab your Blending Brushes and 3 colors. I got lucky here, first try and I love the results! Highland Heather, Balmy Blue and Mint Macron. Purple is always the right answer!! 💜 So, just to quickly clarify. You want to put the die cut OVER the cardstock that will be your card. Brush ink OVER the diecut. Remove the diecut and trim the cardstock as necessary. Then embellish it!

I stamped several succulent images and then die cut those, the tag element and several other elements. Check out that new ribbon - awesome!! Highland Heather 1/2" Grosgrain coming in the NEW Annual Catalog! I colored the succulents with the same colors of Stampin' Blend. Attach to the card base with dimensionals and glue dots and done!!

Daffodil Butterfly

Howdy all! Here is a another Butterfly thank you card. Several of these went in the mail to customers earlier this week for orders last month.

Card base is Daffodil Delight, accent layer of Basic Black and a Shimmery White background. I stamped the butterflies with Memento Black on Shimmery White and cut with the coordinating die. Remember this is a background size stamp and the die is one coordinating piece. So one stamp gives you the 6 different butterflies. I colored the butterfly with Stampin' Blends in So Saffron and Daffodil Delight, light and dark of each. The top is more Saffron, the bottom more Daffodil. The saying is from Butterfly Gala. The accents behind the butterfly are from the Comfort and Hope set. The circle is stamped in Daffodil, the square in Smoky Slate. Retired Daffodil ribbon knotted around. I curled the butterfly just a bit over an ink pen before attaching with Mini Dimensionals.

Seaside Butterfly

Hey all, Happy Thursday! Finally made time to use the Butterfly set and dies! LOVE them!! One stamp and cut with the die gets you 6 different butterflies to color! And Stampin' Blends are the perfect choice! Honestly they have kind of ruined regular markers for me :( Anyway, here is the first creation!

Several of these went in the mail earlier this week to clients who ordered last month. My first thought when I sat down to color these was retiring In Colors. So here we have Seaside Spray and Purple Posy. Card base is Seaside Spray, accent layer of Basic Black and background layer of Shimmery White. The butterflies were stamped on a separate piece of Shimmery White and cut with the coordinating die. Blends to color, accent areas in Posy, most of the wings with Seaside. The accent stamps under the butterfly are from the Comfort & Hope set. I just happened to see something similar on Pinterest and LOVED it and my set was just sitting by my desk waiting to be used! Saying from Butterfly Gala and Seaside Metallic Ribbon for accent.

Thanks for stopping by today! I'll be back tomorrow with another butterfly card - don't miss it! Product details and shopping links below.
