ICS Blog Hop Oh So Succulent

Woo Hoo it's the first Wednesday of the month you know what that means RIGHT? ICS Blog hop time! Our theme this month of May is It's A Girl Thing!  I also wanted to showcase some of the Occasions Catalog products before it ends at the end of the month. 

Enjoy the hop and feel free to leave us some love in the form of a comment, we love hearing from you!

I needed a special birthday for my husband's grandmother's 80+ year old birthday.  I wanted to showcase the retiring (I'm super sad it's retiring!) Oh So Succulent stamp set and the 2016-2018 in-colors.  This card was inspired by a card I found here.  

Card base is Sweet Sugarplum  - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4"
Next layer is Peekaboo Peach - 5 1/2" x 3 3/4"
Next layer is Shimmery White - 5 1/2" x 3 1/2"
Inside card layer is Whisper White - 5 3/8" x 4 1/8"

I used all the 2016-2018 in-colors with the Oh So Succulent stamp set.  The outlines are stamped in full strength and the filler stamp is stamped off (half strength).  Sweet Sugarplum was also used for the sentiment layer.  The sentiment is stamped in Emerald Envy and cut out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  The sentiment was popped with Stampin' Dimensionals.  

I hope you enjoyed my card!  The next stop in our blog hop is Nichole
