Happy Monday! It’s time for our Create with Connie and Mary Inspiration Monday challenge! This week we have a fun cactus cake for our inspiration piece!
Of course, the stamp set, Cactus Cuties was just perfect for this Inspiration challenge! I had fun finding just the right DSP for my pink sky!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Blushing Bride cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- The 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Sahara Sand cardstock with cut with the Stitched Whimsey Dies and then added to the base card.
- A 1-1/2 x 4 strip of Sahara Sand cardstock was torn across the top and stamped with the “Just the Note” greeting in Shaded Spruce Ink. It was added to the front.
- The largest Layering Circle Die was used on some Sweet Talk Designer Paper, then the circle added to the front.
- The cactus were stamped with Shaded Spruce, Just Jude and Mint Macaron Inks, the flowers with Flirty Flamingo Ink.
- The Cactus Builder Punch to punch the Basic White vase and the flowers. They were assembled on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and flowers with Mini Dots.
- A trio of pink Pastel Pearls were added to the background.
I love the pink sunset/sunrise behind the cactus! OK…check out what Mary did with the Inspiration Monday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!
