Ivy’s Succulent Terrarium

Happy Sunday friends! Today Ivy joins us to share a beautiful card using Build-An-Aquarium in a totally clever way!

Ivy altered the height of the Build-An-Aquarium to create a shorter terrarium. She used Gold Rush cardstock to die cut the terrarium and to cut four legs. She backed the terrarium with acetate to give it a realistic look!

Ivy used the succulent border from Simply Celebrate Summer to fill the terrarium! She colored the plants with colored pencils giving them lots of beautiful details! To finish this simply wonderful design, Ivy added a birthday greeting from Wavy Sayings on a Simple Wavy Banner!

Thanks so much, Ivy for sharing this fun and totally cool way to use the Build-An-Aquarium set!

Yainea created a beautiful aquarium for some very colorful fish! She stenciled the background and used markers to add color to all the die cut elements! The die cut “hi” is from Selfie Frames!

Elena‘s Build-An-Aquarium design features brightly colored fish against soft blue Stitched Wave Borders! The white aquarium frame and Sparkle Backdrop allow what is inside the tank to shine!

Audrey‘s beautifully simple card design takes the aquarium images out of the tank and onto the card front! The painted backdrop is a pretty way to create a watery look!

Marine‘s charming slimline card is inspired by the penguins that were allowed to wander around the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, visiting all the different aquatic animals! I love the little penguin holding the camera! She filled the tanks with critters and plants from Ocean Shell-fie, Fintastic Friends and more! The penguins are from Here We Go A-Waddling and Toboggan Together and she used a sentiment from Keep On Swimming!

Tammy‘s card is just so much fun! She used the Tiny Gift Box Cat Add-On to create the cute cat feeding the fish! She used the Brick Stencil to add fun pattern to the background! The fish food image is found in the Fintastic Friends set!

I love how Lynnette used the cute fish, castle and seaweed in an oval shaped window! The bright colored fish look great with the Really Rainbow paper as a frame!

For her clever card, Elise created a window for the aquarium on the front of the card. Then she added all the cute fish, seaweed and bubbles on the inside!

Latisha paired her pretty Build-An-Aquarium with the punny birthday sentiment and little clam from Year Six!

Megan made a fun 3D aquarium by modifying the Shadow Box Card! The fish appear to be swimming with the help of acetate strips. The sentiment from Keep on Swimming looks great white embossed on Storm Cloud cardstock!

For this adorable design, Elise used a variety of patterned papers to cut the fish and seaweed. The Fancy Wavy Banner helps to ground the aquarium on this whimsical card!

Mindy made an adorable aquarium shaped postcard design! She filled the tank with fish from Ocean Shell-fie and the treasure chest from Ahoy Matey!

Now, we have a little video to introduce Build-An-Aquarium and to show some fun ways to use this new die set! I hope you enjoy it! You can watch it below or click HERE to watch at our YouTube channel.
