I have started buying plants for my garden. Yes even in the dessert, I can grow roses and gardenias. While I was at the nursery, I noticed all the beautiful succulents and cactus.
So when I got home, I took out my Simply Succulents Bundle and started creating. I love the set comes with several succulent plants, a flower pot, some beautiful expressions and dies to cut out sayings and the flowers and pot. It also has a full size background die. I have been practicing with my Blend Markers and some blending brushes and am so happy it is so easy. It’s so calming to color. Our Blend markers make this look so easy and impressive. I also will show you a Slide & Lock card that is a cool technique along with using the nice background die to make a stencil and some cool effects for different cards. I think you will love it.
