Oh So Succulent Wedding Card: Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Hello my friends and welcome to the official Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop. With this hop you'll visit 20 amazing artists from all over the world, so thank you for stopping to visit me in Canada

This time our theme is the Oh So Succulent Stamp Set and coordinating Succulent Framelits Dies. Want the ultra good news? These are BOTH on SALE as part of Stampin' Up!'s Retiring Products Promotion! Score!

My card today is one that represents my current career and my past one. Did you know that I used to be a Pastry Chef? I've made many beautiful wedding cakes for couples to celebrate their special day, so I can tell you with certainty that the real ones are a lot more time consuming to make than the paper ones.  :)
These stunning succulents have been stamped on Watercolour Paper and then coloured in with my Aqua Painter and several colours of ink. I wanted my succulents to look like they were just plucked from a garden, so I added lots of shades of colour. I also did some random stamping in the background behind my cake with the Timeless Textures Stamp Set - another goodie to have in your collection. Are you wondering where that cake came from? It's a leftover die cut from my Birthday Bright Project Kit! Sometimes I just can't let go of a good die cut. #hoarderproblems

  1. Stunnning card, Allison! I WISH that cake was a die to own - hmmm.. maybe you're on to something here :) Love this look and a perfect card created by a former pastry chef! Beautifully done!

  2. OMG!! I love this idea of the cascading flowers on a cake. You are so clever!

  3. This is a fan-freaking-tastic idea and the colors you used just gorgeous to boot!

  4. Oh, I could just stare at this card for hours! Love the watercoloring, the colors, and the cake!
