Sassy Succulents!

Hello all and welcome to Day 3 of Power Poppy's Swing Into Summer Release! Aren't the stamps too much fun? I sure think so and this next set is no exception! Ready to see?

Oh... there are so many colors and styles of these easy to care for plants! And now, you can have these fun and trendy plants on your cards and creations with this set called Sassy Succulents! This 4 by 6" set features not only this beautiful large grouping of Hens & Chicks but some adorable little planters featuring different kinds of these succulents! I can't wait for you to see these cuties! 

I have a handful of them featured on my creation -- so let's get to it!

Aren't these little pots of plants adorable? Me thinks so! I stamped them a row using Espresso Truffle Memento Ink and then colored them each up with Copics. I promised to try to take a photo of the markers when I have so many  involved. I made the mistake of just grabbing markers, using them and putting them back! Here's a peek at some of them -- YG00, YG21, YG23, YG23, B70, B72, BV00, V04, G11, G21, G24, G28, C00, C01, C03, C05, E97, YG61, YG63, RV21, RV32, RV35, W00, W01, W03 and BG0000, After I colored up the image, I did sponge on some Antique Linen and Rusty Hinge Distress Inks around the outside. I did that with the sentiment too after I punched it out with a Stampin' Up punch. I matted it all up, added some paper piercing and some fun little self stick candies (Stampin' Up).  Oh, I almost forgot. On the far right cactus, I did add some Raspberry Fizz Flower Soft for a little something extra. I thought this would be a fun way to add some razzle dazzle! And that, my friends is it!

Here's a close up of the sentie -- love that message!  

Before I go, I thought I'd share one of the succulents growing right now on my back patio... Moss Rose a.k.a. Portulaca. I just love the bright and bold color of these little blossoms and they just don't die in this hot Montana summer heat! ;-)

With that little splash of summer fun, why not head on over to the Power Poppy blog HERE -- there you'll find some of Marcella's inspiration for this set! And, while you're hopping, pay a visit to the Bloom Brigade to see the beautiful things they created using this set!
