Isn't this adorable!  It was so much fun to create!  I have to admit it takes a little bit of time to cut all of the pieces, but the end result is so worth it!  And to think this was a bundle that I thought I didn't need!  Boy was I wrong!

    Simply Succulents

    Today my card features the Simply Succulent Bundle from the Stampin' Up! January to June Mini Catalogue.  This was one of the first bundles that caught my eye in the catalogue.  Succulents are definitely the trend these days and I love them!  I used the new (and fabulous) Blending Brushes to colour the large image.  It made it so easy to add Mint Macaron, Old Olive and Blackberry Bliss to the leaves.  I went back in with some Stampin' Blends to add colour to the tips of the leaves. You are definitely going to want to add the Blending Brushes to your Wish List!  

    Isn't this pretty!




    Use Stampin' Blends to add colour to the leaf tips

    2. Cut Mint Macaron cardstock 4" x 5 1/4" and adhere to card base using Stampin' Seal.
    3. Cut Basic White cardstock 3 3/4" x 5" and emboss using Painted Texture Embossing Folder.  Adhere to the card base using Stampin' Seal.
    4. Stamp leaf image and pot on Basic White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
    5. Colour leaves using the Blending Brushes with Mint Macaron, Old Olive and Blackberry Bliss ink.
    6. Colour the tips of the leaves with Light Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Blends.
    7. Colour pot using Light and Dark Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends

    Ice Cream Corner

    Today I'm sharing another cute card featuring the Ice Cream Corner Product Suite from the January to June Mini Catalogue.  I am absolutely in love with this product suite!  When you first look at it, you might think it is for kids, but it really is so versatile!  Everyone loves ice cream!  On my last post I shared how to make an adorable shaker card - check it out!

    Today I paired it with the Many Messages stampset as a background.  This is a great bundle that comes with the stampset and a die that will cut out 23 different sentiments all at once!  How cool is that!  For my card today, I used the stamp as a background image.


    The Ice Cream Corner Sprinkles were adhere to the scoops by putting a little dab of Multipurpose Adhesive Glue on the paper and adding a sprinkle using the Putty end of my Take Your Pick Tool - it was easy!


    Instructions

    1. Cut Bermuda Bay cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold in half to form card base.
    2. Cut Bermuda Bay cardstock 4" x 5 1/4" and stamp background image using Bermuda Bay ink.
    3. Adhere to card base using Stampin' Seal.
    4. Cut Basic White cardstock 1 1/4" x 3"
    5. Stamp sentiment using Bermuda Bay ink.
    6. Adhere to card base using Stampin' Seal.
    7. Punch out cone from Designer Series Paper.
    8. Adhere to left hand side of card base using Dimensionals
    9. Punch out 2 scoops from Designer Series Paper
    10. Adhere to left hand side of card base using Dimensionals
    11. Apply 9 small dabs of Multipurpose Adhesive Glue to the scoops and add a sprinkle to each.

    When you purchase the supplies to make this card, you will earn 2 FREE products from the Sale-a-Bration Brochure!  Woohoo!  You can find the supply list at the bottom of this post.
