Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge. This week we have a sketch.
This whole week I'm featuring the Flowering Desert stamp set. I love this set! Here is my card for this challenge.
For this card, I've stamped my own designer paper for the card. It's really easy to do. Just stamp randomly over your surface and change directions. Don't be afraid to have your stamp run off the edge of the paper. It just looks better!
Start with a card base of Thick Whisper White. It measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and is folded at 4 1/4. Be sure to score the thick paper first for a nicer looking fold. On this layer, I stamped the plant with the big balls on it over the surface in Soft Sea Foam. You really only need to stamp around the outside of the layer. The rest would be covered.
The next layer of Soft Sea Foam cardstock is 3 x 5. Stamp the same plant in Soft Sea Foam on this layer. Add in some of the leafy plant in Rich Razzleberry. Stamp that over the whole paper and glue to the card base.
Now you will need another piece of Soft Sea Foam cut at 2 x 4 1/2. Stamp this layer with Garden Green ink and build the cactus with several parts. Add flowers in Rich Razzleberry. Glue to the card.
Add a piece of Rich Razzleberry Regals Designer Series Paper cut at 1/2 x 4.
On a piece of Whisper White stamp your focal point with Garden Green and Rich Razzleberry. Add the saying from the Flowering Desert stamp set. Cut this out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I used the largest oval. Add with dimensionals.
Here is the inside of my card. I used the colors Soft Sea Foam, Garden Green, and Rich Razzleberry. You can make such cute scenes with this set.
