Oh So Succulent- Sneak Peek

Oh So Succulent- Sneak Peek

The new Occasions catalog will be here before we know it and it’s going to knock your socks off.

I’m super excited to share a little sneak peek of one of the stamp sets, Oh So Succulent.

I have quite a few more sneak peeks I’ll be sharing over the next few weeks from the displays I created at the Stampin’ Up! conference.

The Oh So Succulent stamp set has an entire collection that coordinates, the best is the framelits.


Time for a Sneak Peek

Oh So Succulent, Stampin' Up!


One of the first things I thought about when using this set was creating a terrarium.

What better way to create that by using the Jar of Love stamp set and Everyday Jars framelits.

Once I had the jar die cut, I stamped the smaller succulent flowers inside the jar. I loved how this looked.

If you haven’t noticed already, Watercolor Paper has been one of my favorite papers to use.  I love how you can create a simple background with just a few brush strokes using your Aqua Painter.

I created the background using Bermuda Bay ink.  Dang!  This color rocks my world every single time.


Tips & Tricks 

Oh So Succulent, Stampin' Up!


Here are a few tips and tricks when creating this card using the Oh So Succulent stamp set.


  • The Gold twine is one of my favorites from the Holiday Catalog- Bakers Twine Trio Pack.  This twine is perfectly flexible and easy to tie a fantastic bow every single time.
  • The Music Note paper is from the This Christmas Designer Series Paper in the Annual Catalog.  Yes, it’s Christmas paper, but music notes have a wonderful vintage feel and make any project perfect when you add it.
  • The tiny scallop edge was created using the Layering Squares Framelits and cutting one edge of a scallop square.  These scallops are small and delicate looking.
  • Happy Birthday is only a portion of the greeting that comes with this stamp set.  I simply masked the rest of the greeting and embossed the image using White Embossing Powder onto Basic Black cardstock to create a chalkboard look.

Sweet Succulent

Believe it or not I have a green thumb.

After playing around with this stamp set I might have to get my own REAL succulent plant.

The only plant I’m well known for killing is an Orchid.

Do you have a succulent? Are there tricks to keeping it alive? I want it to be just as pretty as the stamp images in the Oh So Succulent stamp set.

I’d love to hear your thoughts and I definitely can’t wait for you to get your hands on this BEAUTIFUL stamp set.

Steady Stream of Stamps

Steady Stream of Stamps

A stream of stamps is exactly what I’m trying to tap my way through.


My Jar of Love stamp set was at the top of the list to be inked today.


Jar of Love

The Jar of Love stamp set is packed with amazing images.  In fact, I didn’t do this stamp set justice!  There were so many images I could have used and I failed to put them on the block.

The stamp set and coordinating framelits are outstanding and you have so many options.  Fish, flowers, hearts, gumboils, a vase… the ideas are endless.  Stamps, Stampin' Up!, Jar of Love


Watercolor Background

I started this card with a watercolored background with Mint Macaron, Island Indigo and Smoky Slate using an Aqua Painter.


There are tons of great greetings in this stamp set.  My favorite is the one I placed on this card- Throw Kindness Around Like Confetti.  We could definitely use more kindness around us.

Stamps, Stampin' Up!, Jar of Love



Small Details

To finish this card I added a few small details-

  • layered doilies overlapped with a small piece of Linen Thread stapled in place
  • Metallic Enamel Dots were added near the greeting.  By far these are one of my favorite embellishments.
