Happy Wednesday, my friends! I have a fun card for you today. I was inspired by my friend Jackie to order the Simple Succulents Bundle from the January – June Mini Catalog. Here’s my card.
Jackie has done so many gorgeous projects with this bundle. Her “thank you” card for my participation in the (in her words) “evil plot” to coerce her to purchase the Gilded Leafing Embellishments tipped me over. So who’s really plotting here? Jackie and Susan have convinced me to order so many products and bundles I didn’t think I needed that I think they’re actually plotting against me!
For this card, I stamped the succulent images in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, then colored with Mint Macaron, Highland Heather, and Rich Razzleberry, and Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends. I die-cut the stamped images as well as a few other images (from Mint Macaron and Shaded Spruce Carstock) using the Potted Succulents Dies. If you order the stamps and dies together (the Simply Succulents Bundle), you’ll save 10%. And, seriously, you’ll want the dies and the stamps, so why not save some money?
I embossed a Soft Seafoam Cardstock layer with the Brick and Mortar 3D Embossing Folder, then added the die-cut images using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment is also from the Simply Succulents Stamp Set, stamped in Shaded Spruce die-cut using the Potted Succulents Dies.
This sentiment is perfect for my mom. When my brothers and I were growing up, Mom made every day an adventure. And this continued with my kids and my nieces and nephews. Mom is amazing! We never had a “blah” day. Our backyard swing set was a horse we needed to tame. Our dining room table was a fort. Rainy days were times to read about mysteries that kids our age solved. Years later, when Mom was with my boys and me in a motel where we were supposed to enjoy the pool and other outdoor activities but the thunderstorms canceled that plan, she turned it into an amazing adventure. My mom is a superhero, and I can only hope to be a pale imitation of her. Mom, if you’re reading this – you totally rock!
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have an amazing day!
