Cups and Succulents for The Paper Players


Hi friends, and a happy Sunday to you! This week at The Paper Players the wonderfully talented Jaydee is our hostess. It's a theme challenge: Create a Square Card. Easy, fun! Everyone can play along.


Simon Says Stamp recently had a big clearance sale, and one of my purchases was this cute Cups and Succulents stamp set. I had a trio of images stamped and colored sitting on my desk for quite some time, and when I saw Jaydee's challenge, this little one found a home! These images are great fun to color.


Since I'm using Simon products, I'm also playing along with their Anything Goes challenge on their  Wednesday Challenge Blog.


Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Cups and Succulents (SSS)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah)
Patterned Paper: American Crafts
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Markers (Copic)
Tools: Big Shot, Stitched Square Dies (Lawn Fawn)
Accessories: Natural Trim Ribbon (SU), Enamel Dots (MME)

Please join us at The Paper Players this week and create a square card! Come on, I know you want to! Check out the creations of our amazing DT, too!

So sweet...at first I thought it was this month's Paper Pumpkin stamp, it's quite similar! I love your colors, you really did a great job on the cup. And the little ribbon and enamel dots are perfect little embellishments!
