Today we are showcasing the oh-so-fun Cinco de Cactus stamp set and the Stitched Squares & More Dies. These cacti guys totally make me smile. Add in some chili peppers and darling little musical note fillers and you're ready to fiesta!


For my card, I started by stamping the cactus with maracas in Copic safe ink and then creating a mask with a post it note to cover him up. I then did a little ink blending with squeezed lemonade, more mustard, spiced marmalade and candied apple distress oxides. Next I colored the image in with Copic markers and added a bunch of the music notes all around.


I cut the Spring Tree Die from a white card panel, then used the negative from the die cut as a frame for my colored image.  I embossed the sentiment in black then added a few colored chili peppers and some silver saucers holeless sequins for accent.


For my second card today, I used the Stitched Squares & More Dies to create three windows in a white card panel. Then I placed some patterned paper from the Cherry Blossom line by Prima behind, orienting one of the windows to frame the small foiled butterfly on the patterned paper.


The sentiment is two stamps from the Year of the Pig set embossed in byzantine bronze.  I then used the Poinsettias Dies for accent, cutting them from patterned paper and then sponging the edges with worn lipstick distress ink and then layering together. The finishing accents were some of the flowers from the Spring Confetti Mix and some teeny flatback pearls.  he confetti and pearls were a breeze to add with the new Gem Wand. I finished off the card with a chicken wire embossed white background on an A2 card base.

Today we are showcasing the seriously adorable For Fox Sake stamp set and the dreamy Spring Tree Duo Die. Seriously! I can't get over how cute these foxy little critters are! For Fox Sake totally grabbed me by the heartstrings and I couldn't wait to color up some of these little cuties.


For my card, I started by stamping the fox and birdy in watercolor safe ink on smooth bristol and then watercolored with Arteza real brush markers. I framed this image with the Square Stamp Die, cutting from both white cardstock and fun foam to give a little dimension.

The background for the card is embossed with a notebook paper embossing folder and I distressed the edges. Next I stamped the Think Positive sentiment from For Fox Sake on a die cut from the Liners Dies. and popped up over the embossed panel. So sweet!


Next I moved on to the beautiful Spring Tree Duo Die. I used just the inner portion of the die to cut the tree from neutral cardstock. Once that was cut, I cut the die cut portion out with the largest die from the Scalloped Duo DiesI then sponged around the edge of this cut panel with black ink and colored the tree branches, trunk and leaves with Copic markers.


Next I cut the same Scalloped Duo Die from white cardstock. I eyeballed where I would want my blooms, then used a round sponge and some lilac and white paint to pounce onto my paper, to fill out my tree. When this was dry, I sponged around the edges with tumbled glass distress oxide ink for a sky look and then layered the two cut portions together. I cut two of the small scroll accents from black and layered them behind the top and bottom of the image.

The sentiment is from the For Fox Sake set and is embossed in white on black cardstock. I added cheesecloth behind my focal panel and accented with a seam binding bow. The background is done with the 3D lumber embossing folder, which I lightly sponged with black ink. My finishing touch was a bit of unicorn stickles on the leaves of the tree.
