What do you think? Look like real Succulents? Well there not. They are card stock, and I am loving them. Why? Became I kill every house plant I get. Have beautiful flower gardens outside but inside no way.
I took a piece Crumb Cake Card Stock, and stamped it with the Gorgeous Grunge and the Timeless Textures Stamp Set in Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Ink. I then sprayed with Rubbing Alcohol and crunched it up, to give it an aged look. I then took a Project Life Card Collection Box and covered it with the Crumb Card Stock.
I used this box as a gift box for a dear friend's birthday gift. But what made the gift come a live is the beautiful succulents on top. Don't they look real?
I was so pleased with the look of the gift box. I can't wait to make more of these beauties. Watch, as I will have to do a video in the coming days and show you just how easy these succulents come together with the Succulent Framelits Dies found in the Occasions Catalog. Hard to believe I start the succulents with Old Olive and Crumb Cake Card Stock.
Time is Running Out
My March 17-19 Stamp Retreat in N. Springfield, PA at Camp Judson is over half-full. If you would like to attend don't delay, get your payment in before we are sold out.
Don't know about my Stamping in the Woods Retreat. You can get all the details on my calendar for this weekend of stamping. All meals, lodging and stamps projects are done for you. All for just $190.
I am having a feeling we will be doing some beautiful succulent projects at the retreat.
