I’ve been waiting so long for today! I was priveleged to design a few more stamp sets for my friends over at Simon Says – YEAH! And this time, by special request from a crafter-who-shall-remain-nameless-unless-she-outs-herself, succulent stamps! I don’t do much with flowers, as ya know…so this one was out of my zone but worth the effort. FUN! I’ve created a video for the Greetings and Succulents set, also known as Sucker for Succulents when paired with the die – with a not-new but still-fun watercolor technique using Memento markers. [If you can’t view the video below, click HERE to watch it on YT.]
The Cups and Succulents set is a little more up my alley (it’s called Potted Succulents when paired with the dies) – so I went Copic happy! In the video, I showed a little of how to do partial diecutting using two dies together. The cup and succulent on the left with the extra blossom had a special process – I diecut just the top flower part of the blossom, then the cup, and then fussycut the rest of the plant in between. The background is just a soft airbrushing of BG01 using my compressor.
A closeup of the cups – and I just ADORE the tiny little sentiments! And that tiny heart? I used one from the Heart Blooms die. Don’t overlook what a die can do to add an embellishment to a card! 🙂

You can purchase these succulent stamps and dies in a variety of ways – solo, with their dies, or both sets of stamps + dies together. Links are all below…happy shopping!
PPS: I’m still playing with the new camera and new software. Between both of them, I’m climbing uphill without cleats lately! lol! So I beg your pardon for some fuzziness – I had a setting go wonky on the camera, and didn’t have time to refilm, so….yah. It is what it is. But on a good note, I discovered the Command-T button……ohhhhh yeah. Final Cut Pro users will know what I mean. Hubbabubba!
