OSAT Blog Hop - No Rules New Year

Oh So Succulent - Sneak Peak 1

Hello and welcome back! Today I'm participating in an international blog highlight, with a theme of encouragement. For this hop, I'm sharing a card made with a new Stampin' Up! stamp set from the upcoming Occasions Catalog. The Oh So Succulent set will be available on January 4, 2017 when the new catalog goes live. We are being highlighted internationally by Kylie Bertucci and you are able to VOTE for my project. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop, so please vote for my project. You can find the blog highlights here or by clicking on the picture below!

To color the main succulent image, I sponged Mint Macaron ink in the center, sponged some Old Olive ink around the center and then sponged Sweet Sugarplum before stamping it onto a square of Thick Whisper White Cardstock. Next, I stamped the outline stamp over the top with Archival Basic Black Classic Ink. Next, I made a frame of Thick Whisper White Cardstock using two different sizes of square dies, and cut the same shape from the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate. I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen to color on the back of the acetate where the lines were, and then adhered the two frames together. I tied some of the Gold 1/8" Ribbon to tie around the frame, and then adhered it to the stamped piece with Stampin' Dimensionals.

To complete the card, the stamped piece was adhered to a Sweet Sugarplum card base. I stamped the greeting in Archival Basic Black Classic Ink onto a piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock, and tucked it under the stamped piece. For the final touch, I added some gold Metallic Enamel Shapes to the lower right corner. I think my favorite parts of this card are the multi-colored main image, and the gold frame.

Well, that's it for today. I'll have more samples made with the Oh So Succulent stamp set to share in the next week, so stop by again for more fun!
