Flowering desert....

Hi All

Today I just have to share with you the wonderful Flowering Desert stamp set from Stampin' Up! It's in the 2019 Occasions Catalog on page 29. As I moved back to the Phoenix AZ area 2.5 years ago when I saw this set I simply had to have it.  This is a very simple card was inspired by a drive into town to look at new homes.....Yes you read that right I'm moving at the end of the month from Buckeye AZ to Goodyear AZ. While they are both in the Phoenix metro area it is a move and it carries with it all that a move involves so anyway on to the card....

I used thick whisper white cardstock for the card base. I then placed a 1 inch strip of the Sale-A-Bration Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper. I used a quarter sheet of whisper white cardstock to stamp the cactus the flowers and the sentiment which is another Sale-A-Bration freebie called Part of my Story.  You can get these items too by just making a $50 before tax and shipping order at my online webstore. For this card I use pear pizzazz, flirty flamingo and memento black ink. I used my circle dies and for embellishments I used a frosted flower and a few basic adhesive backed sequins as well as a small piece of the mini sequin trim as one can never have to much bling...... I stamped and fussy cut the cactus and flowers out and then after attaching the flowers to the cactus with mini glue dots I used dimensionals to adhere the cactus to the card everything else is adhered directly to the card base with snail adhesive. I used a watercolor pencil to create a patch of dirt to set the cactus on as I don't like to see things that are usually in the ground floating in air. I think it turn out great and it was pretty quick too.

Hopefully this card gives you some creative inspiration. You can find all the products I used for this card in my online webstore by just clicking the "SHOP NOW" just on the right of this post.  I'd love to earn your business so if you don't have a demonstrator and want a catalog or have questions please leave me a comment and I'll get back to you right away.

Okay so that's it for today. Thank you for stopping by. Take care and until next time Happy Stampin'!!!!

Hi All
Today I'm sharing 3 Valentine cards that a class at a local RV resort where I teach card making once a month will be making soon. I offered Valentine cards in January at the RV resort and they liked them so much that the activities director asked if I'd do another round so that a few new gals could also get a chance to make some valentine cards for their loved ones. I love to teach card making to this group of gals. They have chosen to live "tiny" for at least the winter months. So making cards means that once they are mailed they have nothing to store away which makes them very happy. Most of these gals  are known as "Snowbirds" in Arizona. They usually arrive to the RV resort around the time the first snow lands in their home town and they leave usually as the snow leaves their home town. Anywhooo... on to the cards...
Aren't they all so sweet??? For the blue and pink cupcake card I used the Hello Cupcake Sale-A-Bration stamp set & Dot to Dot embossing folder from the 2019 Occasions catalog. For the top pink card I used polka dot tulle ribbon, the new Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder and the new Occasions Meant to Be stamp set. For the white card on the right I also used the new Occasions Meant to Be stamp set. As you can see there are many different looks to be found in that stamp set & it is very versatile set. Below you will find all the supplies I used to make all 3 cards if you want to get the products just click on the picture and the link will take you right to my online webstore at Stampin' Up! and you too can create one of a kind cards for your loved ones just like the gals at the RV resort. If you want it all just click the Join now button on the right and you can join my team and get $125 worth of product for $99 plus tax (shipping is FREE) and you never I mean never have to sell anything to anybody. If you have questions I'd love the chance to earn your business or have you join my team so leave me a comment and I'll get right back to you. 

Well that's it for today.  Thanks for stopping by until next time Happy Stampin'!!!
