Oh So Succulent

Hello, crafty friends. I have another fun card to share with you today using the Oh So Succulent Bundle- again! This time I made a  4 1/4" by 4 1/4" square card.

Oh So Succulent Card Supplies:

  • stamps: Oh So Succulent Bundle (retiring)
  • card stock: Thick Whisper White, Whisper White, and Soft Suede
  • ink: Basic Black, Rich Razzleberry, Sweet Sugarplum, and Old Olive
  • accessories: Succulent Framelits (retiring), Irresistibly Floral DSP, Sponge Brayer, Linen Thread, and Halloween Enamel Dots (now in the Clearance store!)

So are you wondering how I made the background paper?
First, I cut 3 pieces of the Irresistibly Floral Specialty DSP at 1 1/8" by 3 1/2" strips and randomly brayered Soft Suede ink onto 2 of the pieces while brayering Rich Razzleberry ink on the 3rd piece.  I used the awesome Sponge Brayers.  I love these little brayers. They are so easy to use.

Next, I took a paper towel and wiped the DSP off to remove the ink from the embossed areas- in this case the circles.  Lastly, I stamped a flower image from the Oh So Succulent stamp set randomly onto the DSP pieces using Soft Suede and Rich Razzleberry ink. Again, I wiped the card stock off to show the pre-embossed areas.  Super easy and gives you a cool effect!  I love the Irresistibly Floral Specialty DSP!
