Succulent Garden Ideas

Today I am sharing a card that I made with the Stampin’ Up! Succulent Garden suite of products.  All I can say is WOW!!  I love flowers and floral papers.  This is my new favorite floral set!  This set allows you to make beautiful 3D flowers.  Warning, it takes some time to cut all the pieces for these flowers.  So this is not a Stamp set that you would go to for quick cards.  Although that might be a good challenge.  Design some quick and easy cards with this set.

Well I am digressing.  So here are the details for this card.  This project uses the Succulent Garden Suite of products from Stampin’ Up!.  That is the Oh So Succulent Bundle with the stamp set and coordinating Framelits.  The paper is the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper.

First you want to start by cutting out the 5 layers of the solid image flower using the framelits.  Stamp the tips of the larger layers with Sweet Sugarplum ink and the small stamp that highlights the tip of the flower.  I used glue dots to assemble the layers of the flower together.  I suggest that while you are cutting, cut out extra pieces so you can make the flowers to have on hand for cards…  I made a stack of flowers using a lot of colors including, Flirty Flamingo, So Saffron, Mint Macaroon, Perfect plum and Wisteria Wonder and of course Whisper White.

The card base is a 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ layer of Sweet Sugarplum cardstock scored at 4 1/4″.  Next is a 5 1/4″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White cardstock and a 3 3/4″ x 5″ layer of the Sweet Sugarplum checker pattern paper from the Succulent Garden DSP.  Adhere the designer paper to the Whisper White layer.  Add a piece of Sweet Sugarplum ribbon around the top left corner of the card.

Next is a 3″ x 3 1/2″ piece of Sweet Sugarplum layered with a 2 3/4″ x 3 1/4″ piece of the flowered pattern of Succulent Garden DSP.  Then a 2 1/8″ x 3 3/8″ piece of Old Olive cardstock layered with a 2″ x 3 1/4″ piece of Old Olive patterned paper from the Succulent Garden DSP.

Last, I added the flower at the intersection of the two DSP layers.  I love the look of this package of Designer Paper.

Here are the supplies that are used to make this card:

I will be adding a class with this stamp set on my Calendar for the spring!  Stay tuned to see what I make with the other flowers that I have.

Happy Stamping!
