Hello! Happy Sunday! I have a fun card to share today with something you might not notice:
hero arts supplies: stamps: CL838 stamp your own cactus, DC151 hello stamp & cut paper: PS621 sunshine layering papers ink: AF320 lime to forever green ombre, AF256 just rust other: D1113 cactus and flower frame cuts, D112 3d cactus pair frame cuts
I love the Hero Arts Stamp Your Own Cactus set! There are so many fun combinations that you can put together. I used the Lime to Forever Green Ombre ink on this one. The pot was stamped with Hero Arts Shadow Ink - Just Rust. The cactus has been cut using the 3-D Cactus Pair Frame Cuts. You cut two and one has a slit on the top and the other has one on the bottom and they slide together giving the pieces a great 3-D view. It isn't visible on the photos, especially since I used the Hello stamp & cut. The Hello is a double layer of white craft foam topped off with the Sunshine Layering paper. I topped off the cactus with a hot pink bloom, compliments of some felt and the Cactus and Flower Frame Cuts. The center is a Yellow Gemstone.
So have you figured out what I used on my card that might be a smidge different? That patterned panel....any guesses? Aha...no, it isn't a Starbucks Coffee Sleeve (smiling)....it's the interior of a Tazo Tea Box! I know, right?! I sent my boy a bunch of tea and rather than letting the packaging take up valuable real estate in the priority flat flat box, I put the tea bags in a zip lock bag. I was getting ready to recycle the box and noticed the fun pattern on the interior.
My card was inspired by, the challenge:
I've been down with some sort of flu bug, I have pics that I still need to take but I did want to share this one:
Kimberly and I took Vicki to the Starbucks Reserve! Afterwards we headed to Impress....perfect day if you ask me♡
