There is a fun little stamp set in the Occasions Catalog that you might easily have overlooked which is what I did the first time I flicked through it…

But on my second go through I saw it and just knew I had to have it because it looked perfect for making quick & easy but fun cards!

It is called Flowering Desert and I used it to make my December Customer thank you & Team recognition cards…

This card sports a white base with a red frame and has a pretty clean & simple look going on – the desert sand is sponged on Crushed Curry Ink and I wanted the cactus to be vibrant so stamped it in Granny Apple Green ink – I absolutely LOVE that color!

The sentiment is from the set Well Said and I cut it out using a die from the new and utterly fabulous set of dies called Rectangle Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies

The two flower shapes were created using two of the punches you get in the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack – the spikier one for the cactus flower and I thought the other more rounded one makes a good little sun shape…

And in the middle of that red flower is a BIG pretty Clear Epoxy Droplet!

For those on my Team who are celebrating a Stamp-a-versary this month, I mailed them a pack of Pearls as a little celebratory treat and made a belly band to go around it…

That big bold stamp is another from Flowering Desert and again cut out using a Stitched Rectangle Die – the band is made from a piece of paper from Happiness Blooms DSP with Old Olive Linen Thread tied around it.

You can find Flowering Desert on pg 29 of the Occasions Catalog or online by clicking the graphic below:
