STAMPIN' UP!® FLOWERING DESERT NOTE CARD - February 2019 STAMP CAMP

Hola, Stampers!
     Okay, so I really like the Flowering Desert set in the Occasions Catalog.  ;-)  I wanted to do something with some non-traditional colors because I thought that reflected the sentiment, "be your own kind of beautiful."   So, let's get started!


Happy Stampin’!

Instructions
  • Sponge an area with Mango Melody on a Whisper White or Vanilla Note Card
  • *Stamp saguaro cactus in Bermuda Bay or Pool Party, make smaller cactus by stamping parts with Flirty Flamingo, stamp yucca or aloe plant in Granny Apple Green or Lemon Lime Twist, and small yucca stems in Flirty Flamingo
  • Punch out small flowers in Mango Melody CS, OR Grapefruit Grove Foil; add 1/" circle centers punched from Bermuda Bay CS and add flowers with Mini Glue Dots.
  • Stamp sentiment in Bermuda Bay.  Stamp whatever you like on the inside of the note and on the envelope.  That's it!
     *I suggest using your Stamparatus in case you need to stamp any element more than once..

MORE STAMPIN' UP! FLOWERING DESERT - INSPIRATION

Hiya, Stampers!
     Do you like the new look of my blog header?  Color is always good.  Today's card is, I shudder to even mention, based on the gorgeous stamping artwork of Michelle Zindorf.  She is on Pinterest and her specialty is stunning backgrounds.   Okay, mine is somewhat based on Michelle's, okay, barely, well, not even close.  LOL  Michelle is, I believe, a trained artist.  Anyway, I had fun experimenting and creating this feeble attempt.
     My stamp camp customers like me to keep it simple, so we will not be duplicating this effort at class in February (although we will be using Flowering Desert for another card or note), but I'll share details with you here and products I used.

FLOWERING DESERT for THE PAPER PLAYERS SKETCH CHALLENGE PP426 -

Hello, again, Stampers!
     I received an email from The Paper Players today with the new sketch and the placement of the sentiment is what actually hooked me.  I love this particular sentiment from Flowering Desert, but it's fairly long for the front of a card, so this sketch was perfect.  I poofed (another not in OED) my sentiment out a little bit in order to show a little more of the prickly-pear.  Not sure if you can tell, but the background is embossed with the Subtle TIEF.
