Succulents are oh, so trendy right now. Stampin' Up! was spot on when they filled the Occasions Catalogs with succulent products. Search on Pinterest for the Oh So Succulent Stamp Set and coordinating Succulent Framelits Dies. You will be amazed at the gorgeous creations!
Did you know the Oh So Succulent Stamp Set is a two-step stamp set? Two-step stamp sets are a great value because you get twice as many stamp images. That means more choices and more creativity, right?
With two-step stamping, I stamp the solid image first and then the line image. Some people do the opposite. The first time someone told me they did two-step stamping differently than I did, I had to stop for a few seconds and mull it over. No, there isn't a right or wrong way. Do whatever way works for you!
On this card, I inked up the solid images in the Flirty Flamingo Ink Pad and stamped off once on scratch paper. Then I stamped them on the Whisper White Cardstock. When I stamped the line images (or outline images in this case), I did not stamp off. By doing this, I use one color ink and get two-color images that match.
