Oh So Succulent Arrangement

This is my first time using the Succulent Framelits Die set. I made these succulents using only 7 of the dies from the set as well as a few dies from the Circles Collections Framelits (retired), Flower Fair Framelits dies, Layering Ovals Framelits dies and the Leaflets Framelits dies.
It just very sad that the Oh So Succulent stamp set and Succulent Framelits dies will be retiring effective 6/1/2017. So if you have not ordered your bundle yet, you still have some time to do so before they are all sold out.
Just visit my online store at www.beareddsu.stampinup,net and place your order

The succulents are really easy to make, they are just a little time consuming because you have to layer the ink colors to make look as real as possible. I hope I was able to pull that off with mine.
Thanks for visiting my blog.

Challenge 202 Playful People & #grateful

Here is a Double Z fold card I made using a Art Impression stamp set and these Stampin' Up! sets for the sentiments:

  • Grateful Bunch - 2016/06/01 - 2017/05/31 Annual Catalog 
  • Picture Perfect  - 2016/06/01 - 2017/05/31 Annual Catalog
  • Jar of Love - 2016/06/01 - 2017/05/31 Annual Catalog 
  • High Tide - 2017/01/04 - 2017/05/31 Occasions Catalog
  • Wonderful Words - 2008 Fall/Winter catalog (retire)
  • I also used the Word Bubble Framelits die (retired)
I just love creating cards like this, card that take several stamp sets to create a scene and make a statement.

I also found a palm tree die in my crafting stash of stuff and it fit perfect on this card. In addition, I found some small sea shells and starfish to add to this card.

I am submitting this card to the #grateful challenge over at the Stampers Swap Shop Buy Sell Facebook group  and the Art Impressions Challenge 202 Playful People.
I don't do many cards or projects using other than Stampin' Up! products, so this is me getting outside of my comfort box. I really hope you like it.

Let's Play Catch-Up

Well, I must be the worst Blogger ever because I have huge blocks of time between posts.
It's not that I haven't created anything, it's just that I don't take the time to post. So for that, I am sorry and all I can say is that I'll try to do better. OK so now that that's out of the way, let's get on with the real post.

Today is 2//13/17 and I have been busy with creating Valentine's Day cards, birthday cards, and a treat box and more. Although I have posted of these on Facebook, I would like to post them here for all of my followers to see what I've been up to. So lets get started.

I used the Sealed with Love stamp set, Sending Love DSP, Sending Love embellishments and Ribbon on Basic Black and Whisper White card stock.

I used the Sealed with Love stamp set, Lace Doilies Sending Love Red Ribbon and Love Notes Framelites, but darn if I didn't forget the name of that DSP but I think it might be retired DSP. I Real Red and Blushig Bride card stock.  


So here is a birthday card using the Beautiful You stamp set and the Paper Piecing technique. I used some retired Neutrals DSP Patterned paper and created this easel card

My Last 2016 Christmas Project

This is what I call a 'Winter Village' and I created it using all Stampin' Up products except for the Styrofoam, fence and lights. Oh yes, and the snow and glitter.

I made this for my neighbor and gave it to her on December 24th after working on it for about a week.
Although this was not difficult to make, it took some time to make it because of all the details.
I did the Mirror Image stamping for some of the images because you can view this with a 360 degree angle.
I hope you enjoy this as much as my good friend and neighbor did.
Please let me know if you have any questions.

Oh yes, this was not my original idea. I found this on Pintrest posted by a gal from the UK I believe. So I could not understand what she was saying in her video nor could I read the directions on her blog. So I just went by the seat of my pants (and the pictures on her blog) and did my best to create a Winter scene. I just wish I had more forest animals to go with this.

Sorry for the delay in posting this, I guess it just slipped my mind.
This is the view from the front
