Club Scrap Succulents Blog Hop and Linky Party

Hi friends! It's Club Scrap Blog Hop time again! If you've come from Hetty's Blog then you're following right along! This month's kit is called Succulents.  It features images of succulent plants with gorgeous greens, pink  and burgundy colors.

I made a set of cards in a flower pot!

I used the instructions for a card purse and altered it to make a flower pot.
I cut the base 12" x 4 1/2" so it would be taller. I didn't add the bottom strip or the little handles. For the top of the pot that overlaps I cut the card stock 12" x 2".  I scored it at 1/2" and 1 1/2". I folded the bottom  under before adhering the top to the inside and folding it over the top to form the rim.

My first card is an Inside Gate card.  I stamped images from the unmounted stamps you can get with the kit.

 I made the little flower pots with this adorable little die cut I found on amazon! So cute!

I altered the card a bit and added this panel inside for the sentiment.

I used the patterned paper from the kit and folded the printed side to the inside.

 The background for this card is a piece of printed paper from the kit. The button and ribbon are from the embellishment pack from the kit.

I fussy cut all the stamped images of the little succulents. Time consuming but so worth it! Love them :)

This is a gate fold card. I stamped the succulent image with a basic green and then enhanced it with a water brush and more ink. Then I used the metallic silver pen from the "Color Me Happy" kit to enhance the image even more. The flower is mounted on one side and the sentiment is on the other.

I did the same thing with this card of folding the patterned paper so the design is on the inside. It's hard to tell from the photo but the paper has metallic silver coloring to it.

I cut out one of the flower images from a 12" x 12"  printed paper from the kit.

The ribbon on this card is from the embellishment pack from this kit.
