CCMC453 – Oh So Succulent

This week we have a fun sketch over on Create with Connie and Mary.  I just had to use the Succulent Framelits again to build a flower!



Here’s my card.  I love the white daisy look!



Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Thick Whisper White, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • A 4×4 piece of Daffodil Delight Patterns Paper Pack was added to the front.
  • A 1/4 x 5 strip of Basic Black was added across the front.
  • The greeting from Confetti Celebrations was stamped with Memento Black Ink on top of the Designer Paper.
  • Two of the medium large and one medium succulent flowers were cut from Whisper White cardstock.  Two small flowers were cut from Daffodil Delight cardstock for the center.  All were adhered together, then added to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • A Perfect White Accent was colored with a Black Sharpie Marker and added to the center.
  • The Medium Large succulent flower was also cut from Pear Pizzazz cardstock, and two petals cut off (twice) for the leaves.  They were tucked under the flowers and adhered.


LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it…if I do say so myself!  Of course, I’m always lovin’ my flowers!  lol!  Check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did with this color combination over on Create with Connie and Mary today!

SUOC169 Special Reason

It’s time for another SUO Challenge!  This time the theme is “Celebrating Green”.  So, with St. Patrick’s Day coming up, I’m sure many of the designers went with that theme.  I decided to be a little different and do a green floral card.  The Mint Macaron floral print in Succulent Garden Designer Paper was a great jumping off point!



Instead of combining it with the Oh So Succulent bundle, I decided to use the Special Reason Bundle instead!  Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Thick Whisper White, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • On top is a 4 x 5-1/4 piece of Succulent Garden Designer Paper.
  • A 1-1/4 x 4-3/4 piece of Whisper White was stamped with the greeting from Suite Sentiments in Memento Black, then layered on a 1-1/2 x 5 piece of Basic Black, then added to the front.
  • Two pieces of Mint Macaron Sheer Ribbon were added along the left side and secured in the back.
  • The Special Reason flower was cut from the large circle Stitched Shapes Framelit from Mint Macaron cardstock, then added over a large circle cut from Whisper White.  The center was colored with the Basic Black Marker.  It was added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The smaller flower outline and shapes were cut from Whisper White, layered together, then added to the circle.  The center was colored with the Basic Black Marker.
  • The leaves were stamped twice with Mint Macaron Ink, then cut with the leaf Framelit, then tucked and adhered under the small flower.


OK…check out what the rest of the SUO Challenge Design Team did with the Celebrate Green theme on SUO Challenges!  Then grab your stamps and play along!
