Hero Arts: Cup of Cheer

Hello, we’ve been enjoying warmer weather in the pacific northwest!  It’s always such a treat for us but I have to admit our last couple of summers have been a smidge too warm for me.

I decided to play with the Hero Arts Stamp Your Own Succulents set:

I used the Coffee Cup Tag Frame Cuts for my ‘vase’.   I love the combo of the Floral Mix Layering Papers with the greens.  The succulents have been colored with Copics.  One of my favorite combos:

YG03 + YG25

Do you spy the bit of BV02 on the larger succulent?  It’s very subtle but in real life it’s a nice addition.  I used the Coffee Cup Tag Frame Cuts on the Starbucks sleeve and just shortened it up.  The background is Distress Spray Stain – Mermaid Lagoon.

I was inspired by the latest Sketch Saturday:
I was also inspired by CASology:
Everybody in my household knows that I’m a black thumb.  Today’s project is the best type of plant for me💚

  1. Love this! Those succulents are beautiful and love the blue splatter… yes… the bv on the succulents… awesome touch!

  2. I can grow pretty much anything, as long as it's outdoors. Indoors…not so much! I do love that you've put a little succulent garden in a coffee cup! We do that (those that can, and it isn't me) in real life, so why not on a card?! Love that pretty paper, too! Another gorgeous card, my friend. Hope your summer is cooler this year. Bev

  3. I love the idea of the succulent's coming out of the coffee cup. Great idea and I can see that happening. Great idea. I can now see them in shoes, boots, thanks for opening my eyes.. I love this card. So creative

  4. From one black thumb to another–I LOVE your card! And YG03 is my fave Copic color, too-perfect for those succulents!

  5. I would recognize this as your work of art anywhere, Amy! You've done a magnificent job of combining the awesome and trendy succulents with your trademark coffee cup! Brilliant! Enjoy the weekend! Hugs, Darnell
