A Little Prickly

I've really been running with my puns lately. It's a secret pleasure! I just love puns. I know that they can be cringe-worthy, but I just can't get enough of them. This card is no exception.

The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is to show what you're making using plants or flowers. I get really burnt out using floral stamps, so I was super excited when I discovered Lawn Fawn's Stuck on You set. You can probably guess by the title of the set that they're images of cacti. This set just spoke to me when I saw it, so I snatched it up (it helps that I currently live in Arizona...).

I just love this. I'll probably have to give it to my husband eventually! I love having cute little apology cards laying around for when I've done something stupid or just put my foot in my mouth. I used part of the sentiment "sorry I was crabby" from the Life is Good set and just did some selective inking. I then created the word "prickly" with Claire's Alphabet to fill in the rest.

Stamps: Stuck on You, Life is Good, Claire's Alphabet (all Lawn Fawn)
Dies: Stuck on You (Lawn Fawn), Stitched Rectangles (Simon Says Stamp)
Ink: Freshly Cut Grass, Wild Rose, Sunflower, Black Licorice. Celery Stick (Lawn Fawn), Crushed Curry (SU)
Paper: Whisper White, Let's Polka Designer Paper (Lawn Fawn)
Other: Clear Wink of Stella (on the flowers)


  1. These are cacti that even I could love. Great card!

  2. Great card and so much fun! Thank you so much for sharing and for playing along with us over on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog... :)

  3. I was wondering what ink color you used for the little pots. I love that color for the terracotta pot look. Thanks.
