I am a cardmaker of many years and I love it but over the years stamping and cardmaking changed from a hobby to a job which I am so grateful for. I mean I get really say I love what I do! What do you do when your hobby becomes your job? Find a new hobby.
I am boarding on a crazy plant lady but I adore succulents so I had to buy Simply Succulents Stamp Set and the matching Potted Succulents Dies. Like many of my craft supplies, I buy a stack because I get excited and they sit on my shelf for a little too long before they get used.
What I find so interesting about Succulent is how they are strong, gentle at the same time. Strong in the respect that in more cased they radiate their more beautiful tones when they are under stress from lack of water or support from their growing conditions. Gentle in appearance and like many of use needs to be handled with care, to prevent breakage.
The card I am sharing highlights the brilliant tones of succulents under stress, transforming from soft green tones to warm peach tones. I am guessing you can get a feel for my excitement for these plants.
I coloured the colours with Stampin’ Blends that are listed in the materials below. I used the light tone of each combo and light Soft Sea Foam did most of the work blending the different tones together.
Inside the card, I used stamped the image on the corner and coloured like the front of the card.
