I’m loving the hot trend of decorating with succulents! Everywhere I go, I see adorable little planters, wreaths, boxes, and even teacups filled with them! I purchased a few for my living room and have loved them; however, I’ve decided paper succulents are more my speed due to the “ick” factor . . . bugs.
Recently, I sat down with some of my beloved Stampin’ Up! dies and punches to see what I could come up with using cardstock. I want to enjoy my succulents “bug-free,” please!
With just a handful of supplies, I created these simple succulent plants that are very easy to make.
I made these teeny tiny little babies with the Pictogram Punches Stamp Set (item # 134264), the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack flower (Item # 133787), Wild Wasabi ink (item # 126959), and Wild Wasabi Cardstock (item # 108641). You’ll only need three punched images for each. These are super-fast and easy!
This beautiful, large succulent is easy peasy, too. I simply stamped a flower image from the Beautiful Bunch Stamp Set (item # 134282) on Pear Pizzazz Cardstock (item # 131201) with Pear Pizzazz ink (item # 131180), then punched it out using the Fun Flower Punch (item # 133785). You’ll need six punched shapes for this one.
Next up, I decided to get out my Big Shot (item # 113439). The five-point flower from the Flower Fair Framelits Dies (item # 133731) is perfect for this. Before die cutting my So Saffron Cardstock (item # 105118), I stamped it with a splatter stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set (item # 130517) in So Saffron ink (item # 126957). Make sure you die cut five of these.
Last, but certainly not least, I created this fun Mint Macaron succulent. Make six of these shapes using the Bouquet Bigz L Die (item # 137367).
I put together this quick reference sheet for you so you can refer to the stamps and punches/dies I’ve used for each plant.
I hope you’ll give them a try!
Beautiful job and very creative using other dies and punches. I'm curious how you assembled them in the pot. Thank you
Wow! Allison, I certainly did give these a try and loved making your paper succulents. Thanks for all the wonderful inspiration.
VERYVERYVERY creative. LOVE the NO BUGS!!

Oh my heavens, these are AWESOME! Cannot wait to make my own. You are sooooo clever! :)
How awesome!!! You did a great job! Can't wait to try this.
I love this! Wow Allison, too Cool!
This is adorable! What size pot did you use and what did you use for "dirt"? I'm definitely making one of these.
Thank you for sharing. Your paper succulent arrangement is very clever and pretty.
This is brilliant, Allison!
