Hi friends! I am so pleased and humbled by the response to my first line of rubber stamps with Rubber Stamp Tapestry. It is a wonderful feeling to know my artwork will inspire others to make their own art. Today I am going to share one of my new sets: Succulents.
I designed these stamps to be used together to make scenes and arrangements but I also want them to be big enough to be used on their own if you just want to do a quick & simple card. I also wanted you to be able to use them with other stamps you already have because in order for my stamps to earn a place on your craft table they need to make your other stamps and supplies more useful.
In today’s tutorial I am going to show you 3 different ways to create masked scenes with these stamps so you can use them on their own or with other plant pot stamps you have. I will also show you how to layer colored pencils to create rich images with depth and contrast.

- Succulents unmounted stamp set
- Other new stamp sets! Budding Spring, Trees, Woodland Harvest, Woods in winter *Please note that these are unmounted stamps so you need to trim them out and either put cling foam on the back or you can spread a thin coating of Aleene’s Tack It Over and Over glue on the back, let dry and you have cling stamps on the cheap:) One bottle will mount thousands of stamps and you can use it to make DIY glue dots too!
- Containers from these sets: Country Lane, Just Add Flowers and Wrought Iron Planters would also work well!
- Ink: Archival black
- Kraft cardstock or toned tan mixed media paper
- Patterned paper
- Adhesive (double-sided tape)
- Bakers twine
- Colored Pencils (Prismacolor because they are more opaque than others and don’t need as much pressure to color)
Here is a look at the five new stamp sets!
