A stamped card by Teri || terisplace.wordpress.com

Created this little guy with Prickly Plants stamp set from the For the Love of Stamps collection by Hunkydory.

If you haven’t had a chance to check out the For the Love of Stamps line, I totally encourage you to check it out. Lots of different designs. All clear (top quality clear stamps) and a great price.

The Prickly Plants set stole my heart. Cacti are so fun… and trendy right now…. when it comes to cards.

To make the card,  I stamped the cactus plants on watercolor paper with Staz-on ink. Then I went to town with watercolors. I dropped some salt onto the paint while it was drying to add a little extra texture. I also whipped out a really old bottle of Liquid Applique and added the dots to the one vase and warmed them up with my heat gun.

When everything was dry, I added the sentiment, a die-cut heart (with glitter glue on it), part of a doily and patterned paper strips and plopped the panel onto a card. I think it turned out pretty fun.

Now, be sure to check out all these blogs and comment for your chance to win the grand prize!!

 

Thanks again for stopping by, friends.
