Desert Details: An Unexpected Surprise
When I first saw the Desert Details stamp set I was quite honestly underwhelmed. I thought to myself, now that is one set that I don’t need to buy. Well! Then I went on my team retreat and my friend Pat had made a card with this set. I was so impressed with the long narrow graphic stamps that I just had to have it. Now that I have inked it up, it has not disappointed!!
Not only are those geometric stamps very impressive, the flowers are also stunning. They are distINKtive stamps which mean they naturally stamp in different shades of the same colour. Let’s take a look at two cards that I have made with this set.
Two Fun Cards
My first card was inspired by Sara Douglass and Shelli Gardner at OnStage in Vienna. With some simple masking you get an amazing geometric design on your card front. Want to know how I did it? Just watch the video tutorial below.
Cajun Craze and Soft Succulent look great together don’t they? That linen thread and those enamel dots essentials finish it off perfectly. The enamel dots come in night of navy, crumb cake and white. Here is a closeup.
The second card will be shared next week when my video tutorial is also available.
There is actually a part two to this video. In the first part you see me showing all the stamps and dies and also how to do the masking technique. In the second video you see me making the actual card.
