I had such a blast making today’s projects.  This is my kind of stamping and I’m so excited to share fantastically easy cards using Stampin’ Up Flowering Desert!!

As I was making these simple cards using Flowering Desert stamp set, I could have stamped all day!  This is what I like to call a “parts & pieces” stamp set because you have a lot of pieces that you can put together so many different ways.  It’s quick to build a scene and then just add your greeting and you have a speedy easy handmade card ready to pop in the mail!

Simple Cards Using Flowering Desert

It seems like every where you look right now you are seeing Cactus!  It’s such a trend in home decor and I am loving it!!!! I thought we should carry the trend over into handmade cards that only need some simple stamping!


Maybe part of the reason I love this set is because I love Southern Arizona where you see these kind of cactus.  This giant guy is called a Saguaro Cactus. They are just magical and make me happy driving through the National Park in Tucson.  Last December we were down there visiting our daughter, and as always–I had to drive through the park!  Here are just a couple of pictures:

OK, sorry, got a bit sidetracked thinking about sunny Arizona while sitting her in the Michigan Snow…
