Oh So Succulent Projects

Hello and welcome back! Today I'm sharing a couple of additional projects made with the Oh So Succulent stamp set. When I first received this set, I spent some time looking through the main catalog for items to use as containers for the plant images. This was one of my favorite projects using my favorite container discovery! To start, I stamped the plant image with black ink onto a Petite Cafe Gift Bag. Next, I cut banners from Sahara Sand Cardstock and Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate (the gold polka-dots), and a piece of the white Succulent Garden 3/8" Ribbon from the Combo Pack. I stamped the plants in Basic Black Archival Ink onto Shimmer White Cardstock. Next, I inked the solid plant image with Mint Macaron with some Bermuda Bay in the center (from a marker), spritzed with water and then stamped over the outlines. I hand-trimmed the plants since I didn't have the die set when I made this sample.

So, here is my discovery for the container. I used the die for the inside of the jar from the Everyday Jars Framelits Dies for the base and the other circled piece for the rim of the pot. I cut them from Cajun Craze Cardstock to look like a Terra Cotta pot. I also pressed a Versamark pad over the pot and then heat embossed in gold. These gold-tipped pots are everywhere on Pinterest!

To complete the project, I attached the pot to the large tag with Stampin' Dimensionals, and layered the plants over each other. I stamped a greeting from the same stamp set onto the smallest label from the Bunch Of Banners Framelits Dies, and attached that over a toothpick. The tags and ribbon piece were attached to the gift bag with a Gold Binder Clip.

For my second project, I decided to just use the jars themselves to house a succulent garden. I stamped and watercolored several of the succulent images onto Shimmer White Cardstock. I also colored in the bottom of the jar to look like a layer of dirt over a layer of sand. The lid of the jar is gold heat embossed. The greeting is from the same stamp set, and is stamped onto a banner from the Bunch Of Banners Framelits Dies. This tag was also cut using the Triple Banner Punch from Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock. I added a strip of the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate to the top of the tag.

The tag was attached to a Glassine Gift Bags with Gold 1/8" (3.2 Mm) Ribbon.
