Sweet Succulent Garden Projects


We made some pretty projects in class last week using the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper.
All three of these projects can be used for Easter, or any occasion really.
I think I like the card best:


There's hardly any stamping on this card - just the sentiment. The rest is Designer Series Paper (just a bit of fussy cutting!) and a couple of embellishments.
TIP: my Pool Party cardstock was a little bright for the DSP, so I toned it down using a Whisper White inkpad. It's a little trick that I like to use  often - just 'swipe' your inkpad across the cardstock and then use a tissue to wipe off the excess. Your cardstock will be pretty much ready to use straight away.
Here is a closer look at the box:

I've done the same 'swiping' trick on the inside of the lid. The lighter shade provides a bit more contrast. The sweet little tag shape is part of the Window Box set of dies.
The final project is the Egg Carton:

I've dyed mine using ink refills (a 50:50 mix of Wild Wasabi and Old Olive - 6 drops of each) and alcohol in a Spritzer.
The rest is just decoration, again using the Succulent Garden DSP and Sweet Sugarplum ribbon. I punched 4 holes in the egg carton using the handheld punch, to thread the ribbon through. I even punched out some 1" circles to go under the Easter eggs:


I think everyone enjoyed making these pretty projects! Which one is your favourite?
