Hello there! In my previous post I had shared a Succulent DIY project featured on the Sizzix blog.  I couldn't stop creating with this new Sizzix collection from Lynda Kanase, so here are two cards using more dies, stamps, an embossing folder and paper from this collection.


This card features the Succulent Birdcage Die Set w/Stamps.  I stamped the image twice on smooth watercolour paper (Tim Holtz), then coloured with markers and a water brush. One image was die-cut whole and there are two separate dies for the bottom and top cluster of flowers.  These die-cuts were pop dotted on top of the full image. The "hello" was stamped and die cut from this set also.  My mats with the rounded corners and the stamp shapes were die-cut from the Journaling Cards Thinlits Die Set.  The flowers were die-cut using the 2-D & 3-D Succulent set

Inside my card I used the Elegant Succulents Embossing Folder.

This card is featuring the Succulent Silhouette Thinlits Die Set.  When I combine different colours together in a die-cut, I place scotch tape on the back of the die-cut before removing it from the die.  Usually it's the one with all the little pieces, not the main silhouette.  When they are left on the tape after carefully removing the paper from the die, they stay in place and are so easy to place behind the other main die-cut.  I even leave the tape on the back to keep them in place, trimming any excess tape.  The "best wishes" stamp and die are from the Succulent Sentiments set used in the next photo.

This set, the Succulent Sentiments Framelits w/Stamps comes with different sentiment stamps and dies for the centre. Can never have enough sentiments!  The patterned papers I have used for these two cards are also part of this Sizzix collection.

Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time, 


DIY Succulent Home Decor Project

Hi everyone!  I know it's been awhile, but I've been enjoying this amazing summer weather as I'm sure all of you have too!  It's the first time in many, many years that I actually can spend most of my summer days outside.  I was inspired by our unusually HOT weather and did manage to create this home decor project for Sizzix:

There's a tutorial on the Sizzix blog where I am featuring this wonderful new die, stamp and paper collection called "Succulent Serenity" by Lynda Kanase.  Hope you visit me there!

Until next time,
