Beautiful Cactus ~ CCMC547, GDP175, CTC214

Hi there stampers!  Today's card is another fabulous, fun Flowering Desert card for the latest Create with Connie and Mary color challenge.  I'm really, really loving these bright colors matched up with this set.  

No photo description available.

I also used the garden path inspiration from Global Design Project #175, and I case'd this card from the Sale-a-bration catalog for Caseing the Catty #214 

I'd like to point out the stitched detail on the top and bottom of the main panel.  That was accomplished with one of the impressions dies from Needlepoint Elements Framelits.  I love that little detail.  I also added a bit of clear Wink of Stella to the pink flowers.

Here's a list of my supplies....
Stamps: Flowering Desert
Ink: Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape, Melon Mambo
Paper: Gingham Gala DSP, Whisper White, Coastal Cabana
Accessories: Needlepoint Elements Framelits, Organdy ribbon combo, Wink of Stella

Stuck on you for 25 Years! GDP175, PP427, SS549, JUGS473

Hello stampers!  Today's card is one I made for my Husband for our anniversary.  We will be celebrating 25 years of marriage in just one week!  
I had the idea to use the Flowering Desert cactus and stamp them in a heart shape and then add little hearts on top to mimic the flowers that these kinds of cactus tend to grow.  I think it turned out so cute! 
I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday, and also the themes from Global Design Project, The Paper Players, and Just Us Girls

I didn't have any stamps that already said "Stuck on You", so I used Make a Difference photopolymer stamp set to stamp STUCK ON and the YOU from Work of Art.  The little heart comes from another retired set called Best Day Ever. 


Here's a list of my supplies....
Stamps: Flowering Desert, Make a Difference, Work of Art
Ink: Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Sahara Sand, Real Red
Paper: Stacked with Love DSP (retired), Old Olive, Whisper White
Accessories: Glimmer Enamel Dots, Rectangle Stitched Framelits, Linen Thread

Tropical Froggy ~ CCMC546, TGIFC196

Hello there stampers! Today's card is for Create with Connie and Mary's new sketch challenge #546.  I chose to flip the sketch on the side and use it that way.  I'm also participating in TGIF Challenges #196: Pick a Pattern.  I used Tropical Escape DSP for my patterned paper.  
I thought this DSP went nicely with the fun new stamp set from Sale-a-bration called So Hoppy Together.  These cute frogs are sure fun to color with blends markers.  I used Granny Apple Green, Light Smokey Slate, and Light Flirty Flamingo.  
I also incorporated some green organdy ribbon from the Sale-a-bration pack.  

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!

Happy birthday Roses ~ HSS307, CTC213, SSC197


Hello Stampers!  Today's card is for Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge #307.  It's a Valentines inspiration!  I decided to forgo the Valentine's theme, because I don't send many Valentine's, but I did happen to notice I was getting short on Birthday cards, so I made mine into birthday.  I was inspired by the pink flowers in the middle/right photo.  I'm also playing along with CASEing the Catty #213 (I cased the lower right Petal Pink card in the photo), and Sunday Stamps Challenge #197 pinks.  My pinks are Flirty Flamingo and Lovely Lipstick with a little bit of Poppy Parade and Pink Pirouette mixed in there.  

No photo description available.

First I stamped the rose image from Petal Palette twice on white cardstock.  I colored the roses with light and dard Flirty Flamingo blends and light Poppy Parade.  I colored the leaves with light and dark Pink Pirouette blends.  I cut everything out by hand, removing the roses from the leaves, so I could glue them on where I pleased.  Next I cut a Stitched circle and stamped Happy Birthday too you in Flirty Flamingo and Lovely Lipstick.  I popped the circle up on dimensionals on a panel of Flirty Flamingo that I embossed with the Tin Tile TIEF and then tucked the roses, leaves and flowers where I wanted them to be before gluing them down.  I also cut the leaf branches from Petals and More thinlits in Vellum cardstock.  
I added a bit of silver thread to mimic the wax seal element in my cased card.  I also added a few rhinestones just because I wanted a bit more sparkle. 

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
