ONE BACKGROND DIE, TWO OHMBRE CARDS - Simply Potted Succulents

       

Hello, Stampers!

    I'm still here.  Just doing some other forms of papercrafting, gel press, acrylic paints, etc.  This idea is certainly nothing new and not original to me (as usual).  It's really easy peasy to create this 2 4 1 background with the background die from the Potted Succulents Dies set.

    First, die cut the background using Basic White or Shimmery White CS - you can use a bit larger piece and cut it down later.  Then, adhere your die-cut to another piece of Basic White or Shimmery CS with some Washi tape along a couple of edges.  Then the fun begins.

    Ink up one of your blending brushes with Pool Party Ink and brush in swirls at the bottom third (or top, doesn't really matter) of your die-cut, which is now a stencil!  Feel free to peek to be sure you have enough color laid down.  At the middle, ink up your brush with Bermuda Bay ink and add that color, overlapping to blend in with the Pool Party.  Last, ink up your brush with Pacific Point, apply and you're done!  Remove your "stencil."

BUMBLEBEE AND TERRACOTTA SU FINE ART FLORAL


 HOST CODE  2J4TB4B6

Hello, Stampers!

    Remember, Sale-a-Bration ends this month!  Can you tell I love this Art Gallery Bundle?  And I wasn't going to order anymore flowers. Ha!  It's just so easy to use with any colors you like from subtle to bold.

    I picked the colors above, Bumblebee and Terracotta Tile, because I saw them on the cover of a lovely photobook posted on her blog by Jan Clothier, a demo in New Zealand.  Jan chose Night of Navy for her base, etc.  I used Misty Moonlight.  The flowers and leaves are stamped on Shimmery White cardstock.  The leaves are Mossy Meadow.

    I created a textured background for my card using the Potted Succulents Dies and Thick cardstock, but in my opinion, you could get the same effect with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder.  Supplies are below.

Happy Stampin’!

Simply Succulents Bundle with Granny Apple Green


 Hiya, Stampers!

    I played around this weekend with my most recent SU! bundle, Simply Succulents.  Lots of fun to color with our Stampin' Blends because the color range for succulents is endless, as you can see below.
