I have spent the entire day making succulents.......at least 7 hours. I had more to assemble but my neck was tired and had to take a break and some Tylenol! Cutting with the Big Shot, Sponging on some color, curling with the Bone folder and then assembling with glue dots......Whew what a job!
These are retired Pistachio Pudding and some other Green scraps hanging around.....sponged with Calypso Coral and Mint Macaron inks
Close up, love how the Calypso Coral makes them look so real. White Perfect Accents and Rhinestones in the centers.
And all this prep is for the Belvoir Winery Event on March 30th. I sure hope folks purchase some of this stuff. The hours I put in will never be paid but at least I hope to share my love of Craftiness and inspire others to catch the Craft Bug!!
Here are some Cacti Flowers to add pops of color on some of the projects I have planned. With all my Succulents assembled I am hoping the projects go together FAST!!
Two layers with a dimensional in between and a pearl on top......oops one of the flowers turned over in the picture.......sorry about that! These Framelits add little cut outs the the Top Flower. The Stamp matches perfectly and love the Tone on Tone stamping. Daffodil Delight, Peekaboo Peach, Crushed Curry, Sweet Sugarplum, Calypso Coral and Melon Mambo.
I am also cleaning up the craft room and finding some treasures, like these small tins. The Lids are clear acetate, so I punched a 1 3/4 inch circle from the Succulent Garden paper and adhered to the inside of the lid......yes the inside. This paper is double sided and with the Tombow on the inside, when I add the Succulent, the Tombow will be covered! How's that for Crafty!! And the other side of the paper makes a decorative inner lid. These can be filled with candy, money, jewelry.....lots of possibilities!
Top of the lid before adding the Succulent shows the reverse side of the designer paper.
