Be sure to check out this super cute Fruitful Friends stamp set! It’s our Free Gift with orders over $60 exclusively at through May 24, while supplies last.

Jessica is with us today to share another great video project! Her Critters in the Desert card is so amazing with an ink blended sunset sky! You can watch the video below or click HERE to watch at our YouTube channel.

Thank you so much for watching!

Jessica stamped, then colored the cute Critters in the Desert fox, cacti and succulents with Copic markers. Then she inked a gorgeous sunset sky with Distress Oxide ink in Tattered Rose, Abandoned Coral and Seedless Preserves.

For the Desert Canyon Backdrop, Jessica first inked it with Distress ink in Tea Dye and Vintage Photo. Then she added lots of splatters with the same inks along with gold metallic watercolor. It creates so much awesome texture. Then she gold embossed an encouraging sentiment from Sometimes Life is Prickly.

Add a cute grouping to the inside of your cards when you have extra images that have already been colored! Here, Jessica arranged a cactus and a succulent for a sweet surprise inside!

Your card is amazing, Jessica! Thank you so much for inspiring us today!


Thank you so much for visiting, have an amazing day!

Wow! Audrey‘s Critters in the Desert card is so amazing! She used Desert Canyon Backdrop to build the scene on with a gorgeous, stenciled sunset sky!

Elena‘s desert scene also included the new Cactus Hillside Border, which she layered behind Desert Canyon Backdrop. I love the how the bright green of the desert flora pops against the muted colors of the background.

Grace arranged the cutest scene with Critters in the Desert on a Platform Pop-Up! She also used Desert Canyon Backdrop on the Platform Pop-Up Add-On. And of course, she used the cutest pun for this birthday card.

Grace used a strip of acetate to affix the speech bubble above the cute little fennec fox!

The cute tortoise and snake are having dessert in the desert! Elise used another fun punny sentiment to create a fantastic birthday card!

Yainea‘s desert canyon landscape is so amazing! The contrast between the golden hues of the desert and the dark twilight sky is absolutely stunning. And I love how she colored the cacti and road runner with shadows and a glow from the last bit of sun! So cool!

Marine‘s beautiful card is sure to bring a smile to the recipient! Her happy scene combines the fox, tortoise, snake and little scorpion in a landscape of cacti and agave! I love how she combined a sweet sentiment from Critters in the Desert with another one from Offset Sayings: Everyday! She also used a new Stitched Sentiment Banner!

Latisha trimmed the sides of the Desert Canyon Backdrop to fit a portrait style card. I love how she used turquoise on the mesas to complement the rusty orange and sand colors! Then Latisha finished her design by tying a bow with our brand-new Coral Hemp Twine!

How fantastic is Megan‘s design?! I love the mix of turquoise, orange and brown colors! She created her scene on an Outside In Stitched Square Stackable adding the Desert Canyon Backdrop rock formations without the frame. It makes a totally different look. All the critters are so adorable, especially the fox saying he’s “all ears”, love it!

Tammy created an amazing sunset scene as the perfect backdrop for this Critters in the Desert birthday party! She used dusky colors for the background and then filled her desert scene with lots of cuteness!

Mindy‘s card is so cute! Her coloring is amazing, making the critters and cacti come to life! I love how she inked the starry sky and Desert Canyon Backdrop!

Rebecca used a panel of Pint-sized Patterns Summertime to add sunny color to her desert scene! And that stitched sun is so clever, it’s part of a new embroidery hoop set! I love that fun and punny sentiment so much!

Marine enjoyed crafting with Critters in the Desert so much she made another amazing card! This slimline design is so perfect for showcasing all the cute critters and scene builders in this set! She also filled the background with more cacti from Cactus Border and Cactus Hillside Border!
