Whisker Graphics Blog Hop with Stampendous - Woodland Friends

This week, Whisker Graphics is collaborating with Stampendous! for a blog hop featuring products from both companies. Today and Wednesday, I'm sharing a couple of projects.

For today's project, I used the CRS5087 Cling Woodland Friends Rubber Stamp Set, the DCS5087 Woodland Die Set, Whisker Graphics horizontal stripe Middy Bitty Bags, as well as some watercolors, to make a set of baby-themed bags, which I'll use as card envelopes.

Twine Cacti

For my Whisker Graphics project for the month of May (technically not May yet, but moved up because of an upcoming blog hop), I tried my hand at making some twine-wrapped cacti!

Cacti are a common (and popular) icon of the desert southwest where I live, and I made three variations:

I started with 30mm pipe cleaner (it's thicker than the normal kind you might find at the craft store), which I bought on Amazon. Check out the rest of the steps here on the Whisker Graphics blog: Creative Cactus.

Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge 8 Guest Post

I'm over on the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge blog today with a couple of cards for the current challenge, Challenge Eight.

Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge 8

I made two cards using the top row of 3 of a kind, enamel accents, and square card. Here are a couple of sneaks, but head over to the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge blog for all the pictures and details!

Grid Thx Card

Quick card that I made a while ago and never posted:

Grid Thx Card | shirley shirley bo birley Blog

For this card, I stamped the grid on a piece of patterned paper (it looks solid, but it has a slight texture pattern). I also stamped the dotted strip with VersaMark and heat embossed with white powder.

I die cut the robin's egg blue strip and used a starburst punch on the strip in a column of three. I stamped the flowers and sentiment with Distress Ink, and hand-cut those out. Lastly, I adhered the die-cut strip and hand-cut shapes to the stamped card base using foam dots to give the card some dimension.

If I recall correctly, I think I ended up giving this to a neighbor to thank them for helping us out.
