It rained just a bit last night and now the sun is coming out. It's supposed to rain all week; April Showers Bring May Flowers. Lots of them I hope!
My share for today is a Succulent Crate that I made following one of my FAVE Stampin' Up Demonstrators, Leeann Greff, instructions and video. I just adore Leeann's creativity and talent and have followed her blog for years. I learned a lot from Leeann and we've e-mailed back and forth when I was learning how to make a couple of her cards. She taught me how to make my very first Gate Fold Card. Here is the link to Leeann's blog (Flowerbug's Inkspot) and then the link on how to make her Succulent Crate.
Let's take a look at the Succulent Crate that I made per Leeann's instructions:
For my Succulents,
Large 6 Petal Succulent, Rich Razzleberry Cardstock sponged with Craft Whisper White Ink
Medium 4 Petal Succulent, Pear Pizzazz Cardstock sponged with Rich Razzleberry Ink
Medium 4 Petal Succulent, Pool Party Cardstock sponged with Rich Razzleberry Ink
3 Small 3 Petal Succulents - Pear Pizzazz w/ Rich Razzleberry Ink, Mint Macaron with Rich Razzleberry Ink and Rich Razzleberry w/Craft Whisper White Ink.
I didn't have any Moss to put in my Crate and I didn't purchase any when I visited my local craft store. I thought it too expensive for what little you got in a bag so I used some shredded and crinkled Crumb Cake Paper.
Leeann used Stampin' Up's Hardwood Stamp to stamp Crumb Cake Cardstock to make her Crate. I took the easy way out and used a piece from the Farmer's Market Designer Paper Series (Retired) to make my Crate. =) Shame on me, right!
This was such a fun project to make and oh, so pretty!
Thanks so much Leeann for the instructions and the video! You are awesome!!!
That's all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
