Desert Greetings Stamp


Hey Crafters, it has been a minute since I have updated my Blog.. I have been focusing on Facebook and Instagram Sharing. I decided to get Crafty tonight and use this stamp set and my new Pan pastels. Yeah! I am still a newbie and do not consider myself an artist, but I really love the look the pan pastels gave the card.


Black Licorice Cardstock creates the base of their 4.25x5.5 card.

The Skull was inked with clear pigment ink and stamped on WhipCream Cardstock.
I then took my Blending tool and the Black pan from the Pan Pastel Set and ran that across the clear image. I took a little white and made a few highlights and then again went over the image with black.



I then stamped the flower image with the clear pigment ink and repeated the same process on the skull as on the flowers.. The first color I used was red and I used the "slipper" tool. The Party Pop set does not have green and it is the only set I own, so I first used the yellow on the leaves and then dark blue over the flowers to get the desired green color, I went back over with the yellow a second time to lighten up the blue tones.



Then I placed both dies on the Journey Platinum machine on the magnetic side and ran them through the machine to cut out the stamped and colored images.

I cut a piece of Printed Cardstock (retired) to 5x4
Then cut a piece of Candy Apple Cardstock to 3x4 
and adhered the two pieces together.
I tied a doubled bow using the Black Licorice Satin Ribbon and adhered it to the paper and then the pieces to the front of the card.

I used the small foam squares and doubled up on them to pop the skull off of the card and placed it sort of catty wompus onto the from to the front. I then trimmed the stem off of the flower and popped it off of the skull using 1 small foam square.

I cut a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock to 5x4 and adhered it to the inside of the card.
