Oh So Succulent Again!

Hello, Crafters.

I think this stamp set is becoming my newest favourite set, pushing the balloons off top spot! LOL!

As I said yesterday, this is so easy to line up the second stamp in the two-step stamping process. 

On both occasions I've used this stamp set, I've stamped the outline stamp first.

Next time, I'll try and remember to do the main body stamp first - I don't remember trying it on Wednesday!

To make this card I started with a base of Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock (CS), then a layer of Tip Top Taupe  CS, which I adhered together using Tombow. 
Note: rather than keep repeating myself and saying I used Tombow, please note, I used Tombow for all the adhering on this card! LOL!

I took a 3 1/8" square piece of Tip Top Taupe CS and dry embossed it using the Petal Burst Embossing Folder. 

Hubby said they look like pebbles, which I thought was very appropriate for succulents! 

I have to agree with him, too, they now look like pebals to me!

I layered this onto a piece of Sweet Sugarplum CS. 

I used Soft Suede to stamp the sentiment, which is from the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set, onto another piece of Tip Top Taupe CS.
On some scrap pieces of Sweet Sugarplum CS I stamped the outline stamps of two large and two small flowers.

Then I stamped the solid stamps on both, but stamped off once first.  

Then I took some scraps of Old Olive CS and, using Old Olive Ink, repeated the process and stamped three of the twiggy-looking stems, stamping off once for the solid stamp.

I adhered this to a piece of Sweet Sugarplum CS.

I adhered the "pebbles" and the sentiment to the card.

I die cut all the pieces and played around with placement until I was happy that the centre was best. 

I adhered the small flower on top of the large flower which was adhered to the pebbles. 

Carrying on with Tombow, I adhered the three stem images and slid them in place under the flower.

Inside the card I added a layer of Tip Top Taupe CS and adhered the two flowers side by side.
That's about it for today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
