Stampin’ Up! Oh So Succulent Mother’s Day Card for Sunday Stamps

I used the Stampin’ Up! Oh So Succulent stamp set bundle to create a Mother’s Day card for the Sunday Stamps color challenge this week.

Here are the colors for Sunday Stamps SSC149.  Be sure to stop by the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the other design team members created and to play along too!

The design for my card was inspired by My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge 325.

I started by inking the outline flower image from the Oh So Succulent photopolymer stamp set in Sweet Sugarplum ink, stamping it on scrap paper and then stamping it on a Sweet Sugarplum card base.  I repeated this process until the image was stamped randomly across the card front.

I adhered a panel of Succulent Garden DSP (Sale-a-bration item) to a panel of Whisper White card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then wrapped a strand of Elegant Eggplant Solid Baker’s Twine around the panel twice and tied a bow.  I adhered the DSP panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment in Elegant Eggplant ink on a strip of Pear Pizzazz card stock, punched the end with the Banner Triple Punch and then adhered it with Glue Dots to the card front.  I curled the ends just a bit before adhering the banner to give it a wavy appearance.  I added three Pearl Basic Jewels to the sentiment strip and then started cutting card stock for the succulents.

For the larger flower, I cut two of each size of the flower die cuts.  The lower layers are Wild Wasabi card stock and the upper layers are Pear Pizzazz card stock.  I sponged the edges of the Wild Wasabi card stock with Elegant Eggplant ink and the edges of the Pear Pizzazz card stock with Sweet Sugarplum ink.  I adhered the layered die cuts together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I placed the flowers on top of a Stampin’ Pierce Mat and then used the Stylus from my Simply Scored Tool to press down and roll around the center of the flower as I adhered it together.

I used the two smaller dies from the Succulents Framelits Dies to cut two each from Pear Pizzazz and Wild Wasabi card stocks for the two smaller flowers.  I sponged the edges and adhered the layers together as described above and then adhered all three flowers to the card front with Glue Dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Oh So Succulent stamp set in Elegant Eggplant ink and added the flower images in Sweet Sugarplum and Pear Pizzazz inks on a Whisper White card stock panel to finish the inside of the card.
