Today’s simple project uses Life is Grand (Occasions Catalog) paired with Painted Seasons Bundle (FREE with a $100.00 purchase). Painted Seasons is one stunning stamp set!

I took my color inspiration from a picture of beautiful succulents. Succulents come in so many different shades, shapes and colors. This card could be changed just by choosing different ink. Love that!

Hello, Dear Friend

Large sentiments can make your cards pop.  Life is Grand has the perfect font combination along with spot on greetings. Hello, Dear Friend is probably my favorite in the set. Which one is your favorite?

Hello, Dear Friend Ginny Harrell Stampin' Up!

Want to create this look on your succulents? Ink up the stamp using Pear Pizzazz. Use a dauber to add Gorgeous Grape ink to the edge of your stamp blossom. Stamp directly on your card front. Make sure you CLEAN your stamp in between stamping so you don’t get Gorgeous Grape ink on your Pear Pizzazz ink pad. I also used a mask to cover up the blossoms before I added the leaves.

Simple cards can be a challenge

Keep this card simple with a couple of cardstock layers for interest. You can  use your Stamparatus for the sentiment and mass produce this card with no mistakes.  What is even better?? There are coordinating Four Seasons framelits to go with the Painted Seasons Bundle. Adding the framelits to your craft stash will make this set even more versatile.
