Thanks - Simply Succulents

Hello, hope you are having a lovely weekend and Happy Thanksgiving to my US readers! I don't know about you, but I get very distracted by new products and want to play with all my new goodies. This time I am using a soon to be released stamp set known as Simply Succulents from Stampin' Up!®. This stamp set will be released in the January to June 2021 mini catalogue but if you join my team, you will be able to order these products from December 1st 2020. 

Today's card uses the stamp set but also the brand new Blending Brushes that will be released in January 2021. I mentioned these in my last post. They are so soft and I keep wanting to use them on every card. It also uses some of the Sale-A-bration papers 'Oh So Ombre' Designer Series Paper. You can get these pretty papers FREE if you spend AUD $90 on your order. 


- Use a Blackberry Bliss card base - A4 cut in half and folded. 

- Use coordinating pieces of Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper and place them at an angle on your card front, adhering the pieces with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. 

- Use blending brushes and blend ink colours onto a piece of Shimmery White card. Colours used were Gorgeous Grape, Balmy Blue, Coastal Cabana and a touch of Bermuda Bay.

- Stamp a succulent from the Simply Succulents stamp set using Versamark ink onto the Shimmery White card over the top of the colour blended area. Use a Stamparatus to ensure correct placement.

- Heat emboss the image using White Stampin' Emboss Powder and a Heat Tool.

- Stamp the pot using Gorgeous Grape ink onto a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut the image.

- Stamp 'Thanks' from the Simply Succulents Stamp set onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss card using Versamark ink and again heat emboss with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. Trim down the sentiment piece to fit your card.

- Attach the pot, succulents and sentiment to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals 

- Use Rhinestone Basic Jewels to add some interest to your card.

- Attach a piece of Whisper White card to the inside of the card and stamp another succulent using Gorgeous Grape ink.

Tips for blending:

  • Be careful of contaminating your Shimmery White cardstock. Avoid this by either wearing gloves while blending and then taking them off, or using a bit of paper to hold your paper still while blending.
  • Start blending off the page to avoid large "blobs" of ink on your card
