Life can be Prickly

Hey everybody! Happy Hump Day – I hope you’re having a great week! I’m up on the Prickley Pear Stamps blog this morning with an inspiration project featuring some of the stamps and dies in the new Southwestern Collection that was just released last month! I created a pretty get well card featuring the Prickly Pear Cactus stamps and dies which I paired with some pretty patterned paper in my stash.

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from CutCardStock Basis Natural cardstock along with layering panels and strips from coordinating patterned papers in the Keep It Simple Ruby 12×12 Collection Pack. I stamped the images from the Prickly Pear Cactus stamps in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Basis Natural cardstock, colored them with alcohol markers and ultra fine point markers, and cut them with the coordinating Prickly Pear Cactus dies. I stamped the sentiment in the lower left corner and added a red enamel heart to the flower pot. I adhered a few gemstones from the Trinity Stamps Andradite Sparkle Embellishment Mix which completed the card.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
