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.
Hello and welcome back! I'm back this morning with the next TGIF Challenge 96. This week it's #96, a designer challenge with the talented Bibi Cameron as our inspiration!
I just loved her card trio that was highlighted in the graphic below, so I took my inspiration directly from that set.
I copied her lovely card layouts, but I used butterflies instead of flowers for my main images. I stamped the butterflies in Blushing Bride, Flirty Flamingo, Watermelon Wonder and Basic Gray.

Hello and welcome back! Today I'm back with the next sketch challenge for the TGIF Challenge Blog. We're at challenge #90!
I took a few liberties with the sketch, and moved my focal point away from the center a bit. Hopefully you can still see the resemblance to the sketch! I stamped rows of the plants from the Oh So Succulent Stamp Set using Mint Macaron, Old Olive and Bermuda Bay inks. Below this background, I added a strip of Bermuda Bay Cardstock and the Sweet Sugarplum ribbon from the Succulent Garden 3/8" Ribbon Combo Pack.
