About Me

Hello! My name is Sarah Fleming, and I'm a paper addict living in central Texas. I'm an independent demonstrator for Stampin' Up! and love to teach others how to make lovely paper projects. I always have ink-stained fingers (I'm okay with that). I also knit. If you're in the USA, I'd love to be your demonstrator!

Happy Mother’s Day

Stampin' Up!'s Oh So Succulent suite is RETIRING! This handmade Mother's Day card also features the COMING SOON Gold Faceted Gems - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts - SIP Challenge

Good morning! I decided to participate in a sketch challenge this week over at Stamp, Ink, Paper, and I knew right away what I wanted to use. The Oh, So Succulent bundle is RETIRING (I’m still in shock after almost 2 weeks), and I just got it! In fact, I knew it was retiring before I even opened my shipment, which arrived while I was at OnStage. I think everyone was surprised by this one.

I loved this sketch!

My card starts with a Calypso Coral base, 4.25″x11″, scored at 5.5″. I used the Succulent Garden designer series paper for a mat, then added the slanted piece from the same paper pack, bordered by Smoky Slate cardstock. If you want this DSP, get it now! It will sell out soon. I wasn’t remotely interested in this paper, and then I got it free during Sale-A-Bration. I’m so glad I did — it is GORGEOUS in person.

This is my very favorite part of the card. I cut 3 different sizes of flowers using the dies. On the largest flower, I stamped the little decoration in Versamark and embossed it with Gold embossing powder and my Heat Tool. For the other two flowers, I sponged the tips of each flower with Whisper White Craft ink. As you will see in my last photo, be careful with this ink until it dries — I smudged mine, of course!

I put dimensionals in the center of each flower between the layers, then added a Gold Faceted Gem (coming June 1 for customers!) to the center of the top flower. I LOVE these as flower centers.

I added Gold Thread behind the flower and tacked it down to the card with just the Dimensional on the back of the succulent. I added some Liquid Glue to the back of the Dimensional and thread, just to make sure it all stayed on the card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Oh So Succulent stamp set on Whisper White, then flagged the end with the Triple Banner Punch and glued it down.

I have both a mother and a mother-in-law, so I made two. :)

Thanks for stopping by today! You can buy all the items to make this card (the retiring products are while supplies last) in my online store. Links are below. NOTE: If you want the Oh So Succulent bundle, I recommend buying the stamps and dies separately. The bundle is $48.50, but individually they’re deeply discounted right now, so if you buy them separately, they are only $32.25 altogether. I can’t believe how amazing this deal is. The whole bundle for the less than the original price of the dies. You’re basically getting the stamps for free! Also, the paper is 40% off right now.
