Sweet Soft Succulent

If you love greens with a vintage feel then Soft Succulent is right up your alley. This years In Colors are fantastic together or as a stand alone color. Check out these monochromatic cards using this great new In Color, Soft Succulent. This first card uses the Hand Penned Petals Bundle (155070).

The image was stamped with Soft Succulent and then cut out with the coordinating Penned Flower Dies (155557). It was then layered onto the same shape cut out of Soft Succulent Card stock to create a shadow effect. And if you don’t recognize the scalloped rectangle, you’ll want to make sure to check out this wonderful set of dies. The very popular Scalloped Contour Dies (155560) are a great staple to have in your collection since the shapes are so versatile. And if you love paper you’ll want to take a look at this next card.

The In Color Shimmer Vellum (155616) and In Color Designer Series Paper (155641) has been cut into strips and layered onto this card to create a lovely back drop for the sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set (151595). A bit of texture was added to the card using the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder (152718).

And how about this card using the Dragonfly Garden Bundle(156224)?

I really love this sentiment found in the set. And this next card uses the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set (158309) and Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder (154317) along with a simple shadow technique in which the image is first stamped in Soft Succulent and then stamped again using VersaMark (102283) and heat embossed with our White Embossing Powder (155554).

It’s simple and striking. The Very Versailles stamp set (149275) stamp set was used to create this lovely card.

And if you don’t recognize the butterflies, they are from the Nature’s Thoughts Dies (153586) found on page 164 of the Annual Catalog. Last but not least here is a beautiful card stamped with the Host set, Better Places (155858) that you can earn for free with a private party or qualifying order.

It uses once again those popular Scallop Contour Dies that I mentioned earlier along with the Bark 3D Embossing Folder (155431) for lots of texture. The Genial Gems (155500) add a bit of shimmer to the project.

Today’s card are monochromatic cards that have been made using our NEW 2021-2023 In Color Evening Evergreen. Monochromatic cards are wonderful since they can use limited supplies and make an impact.

This first card was stamped with the Very Versailles stamp set (149275) found on page 101 of the Annual Catalog.

The sentiment was punched out using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch (152883) and mounted on a piece of card stock. and the ribbon on the sentiment is our Evening Evergreen Open Weave Ribbon (155573) that has been trimmed down so that just the solid edge has been used. More detail was added using the Detail Trio Punch (146320) and the Brilliant Wings Die (155523).

And how about the holidays? Here is a wonderful card that has been made using the Perfectly Plaid stamp set (158335) and Pine Tree Punch (149521).

The Treasured Tags Pick a Punch (154425) was used to punch out the sentiment and of course that Open Weave Ribbon (155573) was used as a band of color behind the sentiment.

Lovely Timeless Tulips

I really enjoy using the Timeless Tulip stamp set and it’s coordinating punch. I’ve shared some card tutorials with you using this bundle and today I’m going to share a few more cards with you that I received in a swap.

These first two cards use just the stamp set and 2 step stamping.

The Garden Lane Designer Series Paper (149488) was used on this first card to give a bit of texture and interest. And this second card done in Melon Mambo uses the sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set (149275) found in the Annual Catalog to create an elegant feel.

It’s a fun fold that opens a bit differently too.

This next card is a 3d Pop Up Card that folds flat for mailing. I love the look, reminds me of a planter filled with tulips.

And finally some punch art, this card uses just the Tulip Builder Punch and our Pigment Sprinkles (149663) to create this fun colorful octopus. I hope you can see all the depth that has been created simply by using the punch and some Stampin’ Dimensionals.

How fun is that? Simply punch in different widths for the octopus’ tentacles and use the leaves for waves under the little guy. I just love it!

So which is your favorite? Why not leave me a comment and let me know what you think?

Then stop back by next week when I’ll be sharing some of my card tutorials with you.

Well you’re in luck since today I found the card and I’m sharing this project along with some of the other Shoe Box Swaps that I made too.
