Stampin’ Up! Flowering Desert for Fab Friday

I used the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Desert stamp set to create my card for the Fab Friday color challenge this week…with all of those shades of green, I thought that a cactus garden would be perfect!

Here are the colors for Fab Friday 154.  Be sure to stop by the challenge blog to play along too!

I started by adhering a panel from the Floral Romance Specialty DSP to a Sahara Sand card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then I wrapped a strand of Highland Heather ribbon from the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack (Sale-a-bration item) around the card base, adhering it in the center of the card front with SNAIL.  I wrapped a strand of Linen Thread around the ribbon twice and then tied a small bow.

I stamped the images from the Flowering Desert photopolyer stamp set in Pear Pizzazz, Mint Macaron, Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist and Highland Heather inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I cut the image out with one of the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies and then adhered it with Stampin’ Dimemnsionals to the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Desert stamp set in Tranquil Tide ink on a panel of Lemon Lime Twist card stock, cut it out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits Die and then adhered it with SNAIL and Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front.  I added three silver pearls from the Metallic Pearls pack to finish the card front.

I stamped the images from the Flowering Desert stamp set in Pear Pizzazz, Mint Macaron, Tranquil Tide and Highland Heather inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock to finish the inside of the card.

  1. I almost got this set because my son has cacti all over the house and property. You’d think we live out west! I love the design of your card and the colors you used. It’s Fab!
