Oh So Succulent Retiring

So sad that Oh So Succulent is retiring and will be gone after May 31!

Today’s card using the bundle gives you a sneak peek of a couple of the new In Colors and some retiring product.    Powder Pink and Fresh Fig are the new In Colors  – aren’t they beautiful?

I started with a Fresh Fig card base cut 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.  I stamped two of the flower images in Powder Pink and Mint Macaron and rolled them out with the coordinating framelits.  The Fresh Fig flower was rolled out with the 3 different sizes of the flower and assembled with Tombow.  The trailing leaves were cut with Mint Macaron and the sprigs were stamped with Garden Green classic ink on Garden Green card stock and rolled out with the coordinating framelits.

I brought out the Window Box framelits and cut the flower box using Crumb Cake card stock.  All the floral pieces and box were assembled on a square Powder Pink piece of card stock cut out with the Layering Squares Framelits.  This was layered onto a scallop edge Layering Squares Framlits.

I had a strip of the retiring Blooms and Bliss DSP on my desk and it looked perfect for the card and adhered it to the card front.  I used the Vanilla side of the Doily to lay behind the focal piece.  I added dimensionals to the focal piece and adhered to the card front.  The Fresh Fig centre flower was popped up with a dimensional.

I brushed the leaves of the flowers with Wink of Stella to give them some shimmer and completed them with pearls to the centre of each flower.

The sentiment is also from Oh So Succulent and is stamped using Fresh Fig classic ink on Powder Pink card stock and punched out with the Classic Label punch and adhered to the card front with dimensionals.

When we were in San Diego earlier this month for OnStage and sight seeing at the Hotel del Coronado, there were succulents all over and I captured this beauty in a photo.
