I made an A6 sized card base from Whisper White thick CS and glued a piece of patterned paper from the 'Blooms & Bliss' DSP pack at the bottom. I cut a piece of Whisper White regular CS to fit the front of the card, tore the bottom part and stamped the images and sentiment. I stamped, fussy cut and popped up a few flowers. I attached a strip of Sweet Sugarplum ribbon behind the tear line and glued the whole panel to the front of the card. I sprinkled on a few rhinestone jewels to finish the card front.
Here's the inside of the card and the envelope flap. I stamped the 'Best Wishes' onto a scrap of Mint Macaron CS and cut it out with a die from the 'Project Life Cards & Labels' die set. I stamped, fussy cut and popped up the Rich Razzleberry flower and added a bit of bling.
Oh, I did enjoy using these pretty stamps and colours, I had a very happy time in my craft room!
Every time I browse Pinterest the pages seem awash with products made using the SU! 'Succulent Garden' Suite of products. I love looking at all the gorgeous projects but I know myself well enough to know I wouldn't enjoy that amount of stamping and die cutting so I've passed on that particular offering from the Spring/Summer catalogue!
I noticed that we had quite a large number of succulent plants for sale at Wilko so I bought a selection and placed them in a mini greenhouse - actually, it's a windowsill propagator purchased at an absolute bargain price from Wilko after Christmas! I placed pebbles at the bottom and popped in the plant pots. The sweet metal watering can held a candle but I burned the candle, cleaned out the container and I thought it would be a fun addition to my mini greenhouse!
Here's a closer view. The work of moments - but at least the paper variety don't need watering - fingers crossed these survive my TLC!
