Paper Rose Studio – Cactus Quotes and Cactus Wishes Cards

Hey, hi friends! A couple of weeks ago I attended the paper crafting industry’s largest trade show, Creativation, right here in my home town of Phoenix, AZ. I helped out with demo’s at the Altenew booth, and loved walking the floor and seeing all the new and exciting products being released. I just happened upon a little booth with a brand name I didn’t recognize, and was surprised by that because their product was cute and innovative and exciting and how had I never heard of them before?? Well, the first clue was that they were from Australia and this was their first time to exhibit at Creativation. While I was there, a lovely lady by the name of Natalie, owner, operator, designer and creator of the Paper Rose line, offered me some stamps and dies to try out and see what I thought! It was hard to choose from so many cool designs, but I came home with the Cactus Quotes and Cactus Wishes stamp sets and the matching die for the Cactus Quote image.

I combined the images from the two stamp sets for the card above, stamped them on Strathmore Bristol Smooth card stock and colored them with Faber Castel watercolor pencils and a water brush.

I love the sentiments in the Cactus Quotes set too!

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll already have seen the card above. That sentiment, right?? SO dang cute!! I stamped and colored the images on this card in the same way as the one above, with Strathmore Bristol smooth card stock and watercolor pencils. And like the card above, I also die cut a window with stitched rectangle die and popped it up with dimensional foam tape, and die cut the front cactus image with the coordinating the die.

I’m really excited about another fun stamp and die company and I’m looking forward to playing with more of their products! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
