Hello and welcome to the Stamping with Friends Blog Hop. We are a group of Stampin’ Up Demonstrators who love sharing our love of paper crafting with you. The theme of this blog is to say farewell to the retiring products from the mini Jan-June catalog.
I am showcasing this beautiful Flowering Cactus Suite.
Stampin’ Up! has a specialty paper that looks like an evening sunset called Rainbow Glimmer paper and the Flowering Cactus Suite goes well with it. I made a sampler to hang on my wall. My home is decorated in southwest/native american indian decor so I knew this would go perfectly with my decor.
Here are closeups of each piece of the sampler. For the first one, I used the negative material I had left over from the felt flowers and used it as a background with the rainbow paper and a few die cut images from the dsp. For the second one, I seen another demo create these flowers from copy paper (you can see her tutorial here) and added a few felt flowers. The third one showcases the rainbow paper, it is gorgoues. I die cut some cacti from cardstock and stamped a cactus in two colors of green and then added a quote with a double bow. Next I added a faux steer head I had in my stash with a felt flower and some twine around the horns. For my last piece I used the retired gold hoop and created a dream catcher with twine, I added the word dream and feathers from the retired Follow your Dreams stamp set using the new in-color shimmer vellum paper. For the back of the dream catcher I used a retired corner punch to create a southwest type background and added some sequins.
I hope I and our team is able to inspire you to create beautiful cards and more. Leave us a comment, we would love to hear from you!

I recently saw other demonstrators showcasing dancing witch legs. I did not have the witch legs and thought about the gnome feet if they could be made to dance. Wait till you see my dancing gnome! I was ecstatic that I was able to create my dancing gnome and here he is! He just had… Read more “Dancing Gnome”
Today’s Hop is a One Sheet Wonder. I found this 6×6 cutting template from Jess Crafts.com. I created three cards using this template with the Handmade Tag Bundle. I love gingerbread, so I knew I would be creating with it. I felt the Textured Chic Designer Series paper would be perfect for my cards. My… Read more “Technique Tuesday-One Sheet Wonder”
