¡Qué buena planta!

Today I’m sharing a card featuring Lawn Fawn “Stuck on you” stamps set. This is one of the stamp sets with solid images I purchased recently, along with more Lawn Fawn inks. I don’t know about you, but I love the not-so-new trend of cacti pattern everywhere!!


The idea for this card was given by the sentiment which is a pun in Spanish: “¡Qué buena planta!” is a compliment you would say to a good-looking person, but literally translates as “such a good plant!” and, in fact, cacti are really good plants in terms of being very tough XD


First, I used Lawn Fawn “Say Cheese” die on a piece of Bristol paper. I saved the frame and worked on the inside square. I stamped the cacti using Twisted Citron Distress Ink and Lawn Fawn Jalapeño ink and added their happy faces from Lawn Fawn “Pizza my Heart” stamp set and the rosy cheeks from Lawn Fawn “Sealed With a Kiss” stamp set. That is absolutely my favorite part, they are so cute!! I masked them to do some ink blending for the background. I had some trouble here because no matter how light was the ink color I used to stamp my masks or how long I let it dry, it transferred to the background with my ink blending tool. So I had to stamp on a full adhesive post-it and fussy cut two pieces at once, so I had masks without any ink. For the background, I used Tumbled Glass and Antique Linen Distress Inks.


On an A2 panel, I used repeatedly one of the stamps from Lawn Fawn “Sharp Backdrops” set, masking stripes and stamping it with Lawn Fawn Minty Fresh ink. I stamped the custom sentiment using Concord & 9th “Perfectly Penned” stamp set and Versafine Onyx black ink and added the “howdy” with Lawn Fawn Peachy Keen ink. Then, I adhered this panel to a card base and added the polaroid frame and the scene. Finally, I added a piece of washi tape and some sequins.

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great weekend!
