Today’s cards (2-22)

Hi guys!

I’m back… back again… with another card. Cha-cha! Wait. Make that 2 cards! Woo-to-the-hoo!

Stamped cactus cards by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

These two cards are the result of some “nothing holding this girl back” inspiration. My goal? Just to have fun and go with it. And that I did.

I started by stamping the cactus plants (from the Stuck on You stamp set from Concord & 9th) on watercolor paper. (What ink did I use? Staz-On.)  And then I spritzed a little water on each panel and liberally applied a bunch of watercolors to them!

Once I let them dry, I went to town making the cards.

For the first card, I cut the panel into strips and adhered them a card made from white cardstock. I added a hello word (cut with a Papertrey Ink die) and a stamped “friend” word (stamped with a stamp from a set from Mama Elephant). There were a few white dots added too!

For the second card, I cut the panel into a rectangle with the help of a die from My Favorite Things. Once again, I whipped out the “hello” die and the “friend” stamp to do the sentiment.

To add to the “drama” (it makes me sound like one of those fancy card makers, right?) of the card, I added a few extra details with glitter glue and white crystal drops.

I think both cards turned out pretty nice!

Alright! That’s all I have. Be back again later, friends. Thanks for stopping by.
