Cacti Birthday

 I recently received this fun "Cute Cacti" stamp set from Whimsy Stamps. It has fun faces you can use on the cacti but I didn't use those yet.

I did have a little trouble stamping the cacti as they seemed to not be very deep etched and I was getting lots of ink on the stamp where it shouldn't be. I did some "surgery" on 5 stamps and all are now stamping great. I'm hoping this was just a flaw with my set.

I also used their Peekaboo Window 3 die set (I now have 3 or 4 of their Peekaboo dies) and a fun print paper that I found in my stash. There are so many wonderful samples on this stamp set's page at Whimsy.

I used my Color Burst Pencils to color and I kinda used a coloring technique I was taught using Copic markers. Not bad in my opinion. A few enamel dots for fun and I'm ready for the next birthday! (An we have lots from April through June!)

Have you trimmed or cut apart your stamps?
