Sending Hugs with Samantha and Plant-A-Succulent

We hope you enjoy today’s inspiration! The challenge gallery is filling up with some amazing creativity and there is room for yours too! The Challenge 125 – Dies Only is a 3-week challenge and will be open until Sunday, June 5 at 11:59PM ET. 

Samantha joins us today with an amazingly cute Plant-A-Succulent card! I’m sure it will inspire you!

Samantha’s clean and simple design has so much personality! She brought the succulents to life with colorful Distress Inks! Then she sprinkled them with water and white acrylic ink to add even more fun!

For the background she added the Brick Stencil pattern with warm colors of Distress Oxide (Abandoned Coral and Dried Marigold) so the colorful plants would pop! The final touch was to add the greeting with Scripty Hugs! She die-cut it from Black Licorice cardstock 5 times, stacking the layers to make a chipboard style element!

Your card is so happy and fun, Samantha! Thanks so much for sharing with us today!

Mimi’s Succulent Terrariums Slimline Card

We hope you enjoy today’s inspiration! We can’t wait to see your creativity! The Challenge 125 – Dies Only is a 3 week challenge and will be open until Sunday, June 5 at 11:59PM ET. 

Today, Mimi joins us with creative Plant-A-Succulent inspiration!

Mimi created a set of glass bowl terrariums to fill with succulents using lots of clever die sets and holographic cardstock. She started with a Scalloped Slimline cut from Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper to frame a white Woodgrain background.

For the large terrarium she used the Lovely Latte die, filling it first with dirt and rocks then all the pretty succulents! She also included the sign die from Berry Special as a sweet little detail. I love how she replaced the O in so from Giant Thanks so Much with a succulent bowl, that is so clever!

She got really clever with the smaller bowls! The medium one is made with the coordinating die for Snow Globe Scenes. The small bowl is the windshield from the Car Critters coordinating die set with a piece from Plant-A-Succulent. I love how she hung it from the top of the card using a hanger from Mini Picture Frames!

She got even more clever to fill the bottom of the bowls with rocks made using the mouths from Make Me Smile along with the rock dies from Build-An Aquarium! Check out the handy diagram below for all of Mimi’s clever ideas.


Thank you so much for sharing this amazing design, Mimi! Your creative use of dies is so inspiring!

Catherine’s Bulletin Board Teacher Thank You Card

We hope you enjoy today’s inspiration! We can’t wait to see your creativity! The Challenge 125 – Dies Only will be open until Sunday, June 5 at 11:59PM ET. 

Catherine shopped her stash of Lawn Fawn die sets to find fun pieces for a bulletin board! Her creative card design is sure to inspire you!

Catherine started this super fun design with cork paper and a Stitched Rectangle Frame to create the bulletin board. Then she filled it with clever teacher related die cuts! Be sure to check out the supply list for all the sets she used.

The travel coffee cup is so inventive! She used a coordinating die from Milk and Cookies for the cup and the window box from Scalloped Treat Box Spring House Add-On for the lid; I love it!

She also incorporated the letters cut from Candy Hearts to spell out “hugs” and I heart U!

She even added a coordinating envelope liner using Really Rainbow paper!

Thank you so much, Catherine for sharing this brilliant inspiration with us!
