Oh So Succulent Tips

Oh So Succulent, Stampin' Up!


One of my favorites about this stamp set is the greetings.  Especially the one on this card.

Here are a few tips when creating this card:

  • Stamp the solid image using So Saffron ink, then lightly tap the edges of the image onto the Mint Macaron ink onto Whisper White cardstock.
  • The outlined image is stamped using Bermuda Bay ink.
  • Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate was placed over Bermuda Bay cardstock and placed along the edge of the card.
  • Gold Metallic Enamel Shapes were added to the center of the flowers and around the floral arrangement.

  • Wrap the banner around the Whisper White cardstock and staple in place.

The Oh So Succulent stamp set is perfect to mix with a few favorites from the Holiday Catalog.

They worked perfect for placing in the big basket.


Tips & Tricks

  • Stamp the basket and succulents onto Watercolor Paper, then die cut using the Tags & Labels Framelits.
  • Use the Layering Squares Framelits to create frames.  This fun scallop frame was the perfect addition using the Copper Foil Sheets.
  • Stamp and emboss the greeting using Copper Embossing Powder, then separate the greeting and add to card.

Add a small strip of a scallop border under the designer paper (Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper) to bring out more of the copper.

Watercolor the  succulents using the following inks:

  • Cucumber Crush
  • Pool Party
  • Mint Macaron

Another Take On Basket of Wishes



While strawberry’s may be more of a springtime fruit, it goes to show you how versatile the Basket of Wishes stamp set is.

Think about this set as a year round stamp set that can be used anytime and perfect for birthday celebrations.

Tips & Tricks 

  • A perfect embellishment for this stamp set is the 5/8″ Burlap ribbon.
  • Stamp the baskets and strawberry’s on Watercolor Paper die cut using the Lots of Labels Framelits.
  • Create a mask using a post it note to set the strawberry’s perfectly into the basket with no line showing.  Color the strawberry’s using Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush ink with a hint of Emerald Envy ink to highlight the leaves.
  • Add a few of the White Perfect Accents for an added embellishment.
