Hey everybody! It’s Hump Day and I hope you’re having a great week! I have another Prickley Pear Stamps sample to share with you this morning featuring the new All About You Cardinal stamp set! OMGoodness, I’m so in love with this stamp set! I absolutely love cardinals – there are a lot of people who believe that a loved one is watching over us if a cardinal appears, and that’s what I always think of when I see one. I have many loved ones in Heaven and I’m sure they’re watching over us until we see them again one day! <3
I cut a standard A2 size landscape top-folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with two panels from Hot Off The Press Blue Persuasion patterned paper which I adhered together and applied a strip of skinny washi tape at the seam. I stamped the cardinal image directly on the patterned paper in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with alcohol markers, and then adhered the panel to the card base. I stamped the sentiment on a scrap piece of 80# Solar White cardstock and cut it with a My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle STAX die. I adhered the sentiment to the bottom right corner and added a few tiny light blue gemstones which completed the front.
And another look… really happy with how this card turned out! Love, love, love this stamp set, and it’s so versatile with all the sentiments included!

Beautiful! Cardinals always remind me of our trips to America as we don’t have them here in the UK. Happy and creative wishes! Hugs Jo x
