Paper Smooches’ New Cacti Dies

Hi everyone! Have you seen Paper Smooches‘ latest release? I’ve been chomping at the bit to share my samples using the new stamps and dies. Today I have two cards to share using new Cacti dies. Those who know me, know that I love Arizona. I couldn’t wait to create with this set!

Paper Smooches Cacti dies

The set includes dies to create a few different types of cacti including pots, needles, blossoms and more. I opted for a Prickly Pear and Barrell here.

I sponged a bit of green ink around the edges of the cacti to add definition. The buds and blossoms were colored with Copic markers then adhered using Ranger Multi Medium Matte and a Quick Stik tool. (I highly recommend the Quick Stik tool for picking up and placing those tiny pieces.) The sentiment was stamped from Eco Friendly. I thought it coordinated perfectly.  I adhered the bases of the cacti to the paper and used foam squares beneath the upper edges to add a bit of dimension. I finished off the flower by adhering an orange Jelly Gem from Queen & Company.

Next I created a card that is a bit more masculine. Do the flowers make it less masculine? Hmmm… I think it’s ok.

I blended a bit darker green around the edges here and used a Mermaid Lagoon blended background.
