When I moved to Arizona more than 2 1/2 years ago, I had no idea how beautiful the cactus plants are here in the desert. It’s amazing to see all of the different varieties and their beautiful blooms. Now, I like to include cactus images for a variety of greeting cards, including Valentine’s Day.
Cactus Cuties Valentine Card
In addition to the Cactus Cuties Bundle, I also used the:
Sweet Conversations stamp set and the Sweet Heart Dies. (Buy these as a bundle and save 10 percent.)
Daffodil Delight 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper (free with a $50 order before tax and shipping during SaleABration
Stitched So Sweetly Dies
Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder
I stamped the cactus with Old Olive ink onto Old Olive card stock and fussy cut it. And, I stamped the pot with Real Red ink onto Real Red card stock and punched it with the coordinating punch.
See this blog post for additional Valentine’s Day card samples using the Sweet Talk Suite.

Dragonfly Garden New Year Card
My creation features Stampin’ Up!’s Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set, found in the Annual Catalog on page 23. I think this sentiment sums up my feelings perfectly: May Good Things Grow All Year Long. In addition, I threw in a sneak peek of the Daffodil Afternoon 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper. (It’s a free product choice during Stampin’ Up!’s SaleABration sale that starts Tuesday, January 4.) The pieces of Designer Series Paper measure 5 inches x 1 inch. I placed them equal distance apart on a Flirty Flamingo piece measuring 5 1/4 x 4 inches.
The above shows the inside of the card. The sentiment comes from the A Wish for Everything stamp set in the Annual Catalog. I stamped the flower image in Flirty Flamingo (stamped off twice) and added a scrap piece of the Designer Series Paper.
Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to leave a comment with the hashtag #stampitcontest. You could win a free card kit.
