Succulent Garden Suite

Dear Crafters,

Today I have created a card using the Succulent Garden Suite. I have to say, I was very happy with how this turned out, as it was reasonably quick to create and I can see myself making loads more in this simple, but effective layout. The flower was what took the time, but once you have made one, you can put them together quite fast.

The succulent is made of 2 of each of the 3 largest petals and 2 of the smaller daisy type dies. I sponged the edges with Rich Razzleberry ink using a sponge dauber. A bone folder was used to curl the edges under before joining the flowers together. I found by putting the flowers together in pairs first and then each of the 4 pairs together to make the one giant flower was the easiest!

The Designer Series Paper is double sided, so I cut one piece to be 14.5cm x 10cm, then I cut it through the centre at about 8cm, turned one piece over and joined them together on the card! This is a very quick and effective way to decorate the background. Then I added a strip of glimmer paper over the join.

Lotus flowers with Succulent Garden Suite

Dear Crafters,

Today I am using the Succulent Garden Suite, which I was not going to purchase, but…. I succumbed and jumped on the band wagon and bought it last week. My reasons were not only because I have seen so many amazing projects made with this bundle, but a couple of weeks ago, we went to the Blue Lotus Water Gardens in Yarra Junction with my family to celebrate my mums birthday. It was a stunning garden, so big and so much to see!

Here is a photo of one of the lotus ponds there.

and the lotus flowers were absolutely stunning!

Here are a couple of the many flowers I photographed.

So, after our visit there, I could see the use of the succulent framelits dies using Sweet Sugarplum card to create my own lotus flowers!

Here are a couple of the projects we made during my craft class on Saturday. The ladies loved creating them too!

This gift box uses the Window Box Thinlits dies with the Succulent framelits dies to create the lotus on top. We also incorporated the glimmer assortment pack, one of the Saleabration items recently added!

We also made a card using the Window Box Thinlits dies, to show my attendees the versatility of using the dies for card making also.

The sentiment on this card is from the Cool Treats stamp set.

If you live in Melbourne and haven’t been to the Blue Lotus Water Gardens, you must visit next year, a I have a feeling it may have closed now for 2017.
