OSAT Blog Hop Happiness is Cactus Cuties - A plant I can't Kill!

 Welcome to the OSAT (One Stamp At a Time) Blog Hop for January!

This month's theme is Happiness is  . . . . 

And we are happy to be sharing some great cards and 3D projects with you through this hop!!

I am sure you will see many new products from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog being shown in this hop.

I am doing my card and 3D project with the Cactus Cuties Bundle!  I am sure you are thinking - Happiness - a Cactus?!? Yes- It is one of the few plants I haven't killed!!

I made a joy fold card featuring the cactus plants and pots from the Catus Cuties Stamp set.  These are easy to stamp and either fussy cut or use the Cactus Builder Punch,  Not all of the plants are included in the punch - but the nice thing about fussy cutting the cactus plants is that you do not have to be so precise.

The base of the card is Evening Evergreen with the second layer being Soft Succulent cardstock.  The wood look DSP is from the Heart & Home DSP and the multi colored DSP is the Pattern Party DSP from the Annual Catalog.

My first thought when I see something with a cactus - is hand lotion!!  So I used the Ombre Gift Bags for some small tubes of lotion and made a matching tag for the bags.  I used the little dots from the Rainbow of Happiness stamp set with Whisper White, Soft Succulent, and Pale Papaya inks just to give the bags a little more interest.  The tags were made with the Taylor Made Tags Dies and tied on with the new Evening Evergreen Windowpane Check Ribbon.  

Since I live in Ohio where the winters can be rough - we tend to use a lot of hand lotion this time of year!

Happiness is sharing our excitement over the new Mini Catalog with you!  So be sure to check out all of the other talented stamping enthusiasts and what Happiness is to them!!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.
