Flowering Desert You're So Awesome Card

I received this swap card from Kay Cogbill and I LOVE the colors so much!  It features the pretty Flowering Desert stamp set and is a quick and easy card you can make for a friend!

Background Basics—Kay started this card by stamping randomly over a vertically-folded Coastal Cabana card base with the dotted Flowering Desert image in Coastal Cabana ink.

Stamped Desert—The focal point begins by stamping the Flowering Desert cactus in Coastal Cabana onto a 3" x 4-1/2" piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Next, she stamped the larger desert bush in Old Olive ink and the smaller desert plant in Shaded Spruce.

Finishing Touches—Kay stamped the Flowering Desert sentiment in Old Olive ink onto a 3" x 3/4" piece of Whisper White and layered it onto a 4" x 1" piece of patterned paper from the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper.  I love the solid color background papers from that DSP!  The layers are popped up with Dimensionals. Kay finished the card with a little wooden piece from the now retired Butterfly Elements, but you could get a similar look with the leaves from the Frames Elements embellishments.

Bloom By Bloom People Like You Card

Who wouldn't feel appreciated with this pretty Bloom By Bloom card created by Laura Milligan!  I especially love the sentiment layered over the flower image!

Background Basics—Laura started by embossing a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Dot To Dot Texture Impressions Folder and adhering it to a Call Me Clover card base with Tear & Tape Adhesive. She also adhered a 2-1/4" x 2-3/4" piece of Happiness Blooms Designer Series paper up in the left-hand corner.

Stamped Sentiment—Next, Laura stamped the Bloom By Bloom flower onto a Whisper White piece in the same 2-1/4" x 2-3/4" size.  The flower is stamped off once in Calypso Coral and the stem is stamped off once in Call My Clover.  The sentiment, from Needle & Thread, is stamped in Call Me Clover over the flower.

Finishing Touches—Laura wrapped a piece of Calypso Coral Ribbon around the sentiment layer and added a 1/4" strip of Call Me Clover under the sentiment, just peeking out from under the ribbon. After popping up the layer with Dimensionals, she also added a small White Baker's Twine bow with a Glue Dot.
