I've been playing with my Polkadoodles Stamp Soup clear stamp sets ...

At the end of March, Nikky Hall brought 2 new stamp sets to Hochanda which are part of the Stamp Soup range and this collection/addition was called "Funky Fantasy". They completely and utterly sold out in 30 minutes 😲 This was meant to be a 'One Day Special' lasting 5 shows ...!
Today I thought I'd share one of the projects I was meant to demo using the Circling Around and In A Frenzy stamp sets. can you guess which stamps I have used to make my card?

I began by stencilling a background using the 'Magic Moon' stencil to break up the white space on my card base. I adore this stencil as it has many uses. Next on to the topper. I used the same stencil to match in with the card base and then began creating my pots using lots of the elements, colouring with my Izink dye ink pads. I've layered them with 3D foam pads ready for my cacti.

The cactus plants have all been made using the same stamps, coloured and then cut out, staggering /adding the images to their respective pots. I finished by die cutting a banner panel from vellum - using Polkadoodles tag dies - stamping one of the sentiments from the 'Sentimentals' stamp set.

A very quick and easy card to pull together but have you guessed yet which stamps I've used?

Have a great Friday everyone and hope you get some crafting time over the weekend,

I love the way your very creative mind works! What a brilliant use of a non-cactus stamp. I must take a detour over to Poolkadoodles! This is just what I had in mind for our challenge. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Little Red Wagon!
