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."

SIMPLY SUCCULENTS on ROCOCO ROSE


 Hello, again, Stampers!

    This pot of succulents is mounted with Dimensionals on a piece of Oh So Ohmbre DSP in Rococo Rose.  There are print sides and plain sides of this FREE Sale-a-Bration 6x6 DSP.  Rococo Rose is one of my favorite colors.  

    I used pretty much the same Blends and marker colors on this card as I used on the card I posted on February 1, just tweeking them a little.  I die-cut the pretty coordinating openwork background from Whisper White/Basic THICK card stock for stablity.  The only place I used adhesive was around the outside edge.

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.
