Stampin' Up! Oh So Succulent

Hello, I hope wherever you that you have some of this lovely sunshine - Spring is certainly springing in Cambridgeshire this week.

When I first got my hands on the Spring / Summer Catalogue, way back in November I completely overlooked this particular bundle.

Since Christmas I have seen some absolutely stunning creations on Pinterest using it and still it did not appeal to me - until now however! 

I have a lovely facebook friend called Margaret, she is a fellow SU Demonstrator who lives in Canada.  This photo was on her facebook page recently (its a work in progress) - it blew me away, the colours are amazing! Margie used something called 'Prills' in the centre of her succulents, don't they look great? Unfortunately, they are not available in the UK however, there is a package on its way from Canada ...

I can't wait to see Margie's project when it is finished - I think there might be a dragonfly landing on it soon ...

This was the very first succulent that I made yesterday - I was so pleased with it!

I used Mint Macaron cardstock to cut out the six different sized flowers and then added ink using a sponge dauber.  I added Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake and the gorgeous Rich Razzleberry.

So I made a couple more.

I took them along to my Coffee & Cards session and all my crafty ladies thought they looked very lifelike!

If you look on page 20 of the Spring/Summer Catalogue you will see these lovely ideas using a completely different colour palette.

On my way home from St Ives I stopped off at a local garden centre for a spot of research, checking out some potential colourways that I could use.  

This is what I came up with using Old Olive cardstock - I even found a cute mini paint tin in my craft cupboard and some white gravel!  Now all I need to do is to find something to put inside and it will make a lovely, unusual gift for someone.



I think I might have got a bit carried away then as I added a flower to a candle in a tin I bought at a craft fair last weekend!



I made lots of them - I think I have got the bug!
