The Spot Challenge #152 - Inspiration Photo Challenge Bright Succulents with Stampin' Up! Flowering Cactus Product Medley

 Hi There!  I hope you're week is off to a fantastic start!  Since it is Tuesday, I'm back over with The Spot Challenge Design Team with my take on a fun Inspiration Photo Challenge!

My original thought was to use the beautiful Simply Succulent bundle, but after googling succulents, I decided to go in another direction.   I found out that all Cacti are Succulents but not all Succulents are Cacti.  After looking at the gorgeous colorful DSP in the Flowering Cactus Product Medley I thought how much colorful can you get?!? 

Here's what I came up with..

Isn't this DSP just dreamy??  I started out with an 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" half sheet of Calypso Coral Cardstock, scored at 4-1/4".  My beautiful, colorful, Flowering Cactus DSP was cut at 3-3/4" x 5" and was matted on a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" panel of Mint Macaron Cardstock.  I ran some white baker's twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack around the panel three times and tied it in a bow on the left side.  I then adhered the matted panel onto the Calypso Coral Cardbase with Dimensionals.  I cut one of the larger labels from the Tasteful Labels Dies in Basic White Cardstock and stamped the sentiment in the upper right of the label in Calypso Coral.  The Cactus stamp was first inked with Mint Macaron and then sponged in Mossy Meadow on the edges prior to stamping onto a scrap of Basic White.  I used the coordinating dies to cut out the cactus.  The flowers were cut with the coordinating dies from some of the DSP and adhered with multipurpose adhesive.  I added just a small line to ground the cactus with my light Smoky Slate blends.  Dimensionals were added to the label and adhered over the white twine.  If you are interested in any of the products used, they will be linked below.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
