Welcome! It’s the April Creation Station Blog Hop. Thanks for joining us this month! Our theme this month is Nature/Nurture Flowers to Showers. So we’ve got you covered for all kinds of creating!! I’ve used Oh So Succulent for my Creation Station card.
Oh So Succulent Creation Station
If you follow my blog regularly, it is no surprise that I concentrated on Flowers to Showers. I just love flowers! So, I decided to play with the Oh So Succulent bundle. For my card, I kind of CASE’d the Succulent Garden designer paper. At least the idea of the tight floral design. But, I wanted to go bright!
So channeling my inner Lily Pulitzer, I created this card.
For my color combo, I used Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Watermelon Wonder, and Cucumber Crush inks. With these colors, I created a random pattern of flowers using a variety of stamps from Oh So Succlent. Leaving some white space helps the colors to just pop! Now I wish I had been working with a larger piece – I just love this!!
Next, I added layers of banners using Bermuda Bay and Cucumber Crush cardstocks and a bit of Affectionately Yours washi. Using the Succulent Framelits, I cut four flower pieces from Melon Mambo.
Then, I took a Sponge Dauber and inked the edges of each petal with Whisper White Craft Ink.
Before adhering the flower pieces, I used my Bone Folder to gently shape the ends of the petals.
Final accents were Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine behind the Melon Mambo flower and a trio of Basic Rhinestones.
Thanks for stopping by today and checking out my Oh So Succulent creation.
