STAMPtember 2018: SugarPea Designs Cuddly Cacti

SugarPea Designs is so pleased to be sharing in the excitement of STAMPtember with our friends at  Simon Says Stamp!

Today we’re thrilled to share with you a stamp set created exclusively for this event and only available while supplies last, called Cuddly Cacti. There is also a coordinating die set and you can purchase them as a bundle or separately!

Fir my card, I started by cutting out a 4.25x5.5" white stitched rectangle using the largest die from the Card Front Element Builder die set, then inked it with some Cracked Pistachio distress ink.  I added two 0.5" strips of green spotty paper from the Spots & Stripes Pastels paper pad along the left and right edges of a 4.75x5.5" card base, then fixed the inked stitched rectangle to the centre.

I stamped the pots from the Cuddly Cacti stamp set onto 3 different patterned papers from the Sugar & Spice and Spots & Stripes Pastels paper pads, then cut them out.  I then stamped the cacti images from the Cuddly Cacti stamp set, coloured them with various green and pink Copic markers, and fussy cut them out (leaving extra card below the bottom of the images so that I could glue them to the reverse of the pots - this made it a lot easier to pop them up on foam pads).   I temporarily taped the cacti images into place using washi tape so that I could work out where I wanted my sentiment to be.  Once my sentiment was stamped, I added the cacti images using foam pads, and the card was done!
