Flowering Desert Sunset

Ok…I made it through a few blog posts without sharing a Flowering Desert card.  So, today I created a birthday card for a family member that I want to share.

A went with a watercolor background to create a sunset.  Same as before, I used my aqua painter and ink pads.  The colors from top to bottom are Poppy Parade, Mango Melody and Soft Suede.  I stamped plants in the background then made a focal point out of the larger cactus.  To create that, I stamped the cactus with Granny Apple Green and added shading with a sponge dauber.

Around the edges I added Shaded Spruce to give depth.  It was stamped on Whisper White for a crisper image then fussy cut.  Dimensionals on the back made it stand out nicely.

As for the sentiment, I used words from Well Said heat embossed in black.  These stamps are cling stamps so I used the tip I showed you in a previous blog post about using washi tape.  You can go HERE to check it out.

Inspiring New Cling Stamps!

The new Occasions Catalog not only brings amazing products to create with, but an easier way to do it!!  It’s the new CLING STAMPS that make stamping with red rubber easier!  All of the clear block rubber stamps that I’ve gotten over the last few years have never had the stickers added.  I found that the stickers kept the stamps from staying on the clear block.  Well those days are over!  Stampin’ Up! has introduced new CLING STAMPS that stay on the block with the stickers on!  They have started out with quite a few of the new stamps having this cling sticker and I am super excited about it.  I tried out one of the stamps and have a card and tip to share with you.

 This card uses the Sale-a-Bration set called PART OF MY STORY.   I loved the sentiments in this set immediately, very sweet and very useful!  With this set having the new cling stickers, I thought I’d show you how I use mine.  The stickers are quite tacky, so getting them off the block without damage is paramount.  So, here is the trick I use.

As you can see, the stamp set on the left side of the picture shows a little bit of washi tape on the edge of each stamp.  The stamp can cling to the clear block and the washi gives you a little place to easily take hold of the stamp and peel it off.  I was able to stamp and clean the stamp easily without any movement on the block.  This really works!

The image stamped beautifully, nice and crisp!  The card also features All My Love DSP, the awesome Tufted Embossing Folder and the tiny flowers from the Well Written Framelits.  I love to mix and match with different stamps sets, die cuts and designer paper.  As always Stampin’ Up! makes it easy to coordinate and create beautiful projects.
