~~~Blooming News~~~ Succulent Singles will have a matching metal DIE. Gasp! I know right.... Watch for news on release day March 14th of a "special" pricing, if you buy the Stamp AND the Matching die. Exciting!!!! 


My creation using Succulent Singles. This stamp set is a variety of sizes in Succulent images for you to create your own little garden if you will. Recently I had seen quite a few little paper gardens created using a succulent punch. I thought to myself well I don't have that (YET) but I do have the best stamp in the industry to create a 3D version of my own succulent garden.  :-)  Here is a view so you can see that the carton is one of those berry ones at the local craft store. I tried to get a green one from the store but they were all yucky from the strawberries already so I went and bought these brown ones. Still cute. Wrapped some twine around the edge and used filler around the green foam to hold them in place. 


Here is a top view to see the succulents more. There is three layers of the flowers for each one and the bottom layer is the one I used to poke the pin through to secure it to the foam block. Then I layered the other two layers with dimensionals and added sprigs of flowers around the base. Even pulled out my old SU wire and made some curlies that I shoved into the foam. Added a few pearls, stick pins and some sparkle around the flowers. The sentiment is stamped in white ink on the sign tag that I bought long ago and never used. Using more of the stuff sitting around here for a change. hee hee  My friend is going to like this as she can't keep real plants alive she says. ha ha!!

What a sweet little basket of beauty! I love this idea. It would make a lovely Get Well gift for someone in the hospital...doesn't take up much room and no water to spill when you're taking it home!

Oh, Stacy! I LOVE this! Yes, I've seen some of the dies/punches that are used to make a succulent garden, but you sure made a far more BEAUTIFUL garden with the new stamp set! You are so brilliant and creative, and I absolutely love this. Your friend will love it too and get a giggle since she cannot keep a live plant. It's gorgeous, and I love how you've colored your "chicks" and added the shredded paper and little curlicues...so Marcy! Love it all!! Hugs and love! xoxo
