Succulents are Boo's favorite plants. She has several in her bedroom and they require little care. In her case - almost no care!
Although she hasn't stamped much lately, she does take time to look at each new catalog when it's released. When the Oh So Succulent Bundle was introduced in the Occasions Catalog she urged me to get it.
And for good reason. Have you seen some of the amazing 3D projects on Pinterest?! Oh my! You can create plants that look just like the real thing. No watering, transplanting or sunshine required!
Today's tutorial uses the Oh So Succulent Bundle (30 piece photopolymer stamp set and coordinating framelits). It's paired here with its coordinating designer paper and a little heat embossing for realism.
I've placed the tutorial below for those of you on a mobile device. I also have a PDF tutorial available if you'd like to download it and save it for future inspiration.
Happy Friday everyone!
