Stuck on You!

I'm stuck on craft challenges lately. They help to launch my creativity with an idea or a sketch. This card is the result of 2 challenges this week. The first is a sketch challenge found on Freshly Made Sketches. It's pretty straight forward resulting in a clean and easy card. The other challenge comes from Heart 2 Heart Challenges which is a stitching theme. I chose to go faux!


I love the bright whimsical colors of the Prickly Pear papers, but I wanted to create more authentic looking cactus. For this I reached for an older stamp set called, Stuck on You. This is one of those sets that came with coordinating Thin Cuts making it all too easy. The more difficult part is coloring in the cactus, however I find this to be relaxing. The faux stitching is made by using some wavy Lawn Fawn Die Cuts.

Pretty clean, simple and cute! Be sure to check out these blogs for some challenges and inspiration!

I adore this card!! So clean and cute. I love your use of the curved die along the bottom edge of your background mat. It adds so much interest without taking anything away from your beautifully colored cacti. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us over at H2H .

Love those cacti stamps and great interpretation of the sketch. The yellow background paper a favorite of mine. Thanks for sharing with us at H2H and hope you join us in August for new themes that can easily be combined with other challenges.
