Checking His List

Here's another card using the Checking His List stamp from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.  Because this is a smaller size stamp, it lends itself to more of a collage looking card.  I like the ability of adding lots of extra accents to a card to add interest.  I made a small tag with the image, a banner with the sentiment and then I used the Poinsettia die and Holly leaf dies for accents.  The embossed circle was cut out using the Scallop Circle Nesting die from Prickley Pear and then sponged with Pumice Stone Distress Ink.  The banner has embossed lines using the ScorBuddy and then sponging with the Distress Ink.  We are back to our Monday Inspirations, so check out the PPRS blog!

Naughty or Nice?

Hope you enjoyed seeing our creations for the last two days!  But we aren't finished yet...We are here for one more day of inspiration.  If you are following the hop you have come from Michelle's blog.  

Today, I am using the FF0177 Santa Checking His List stamp from the Prickley Pear Holiday Release.  I colored him with Copic Markers.  Then I used removable tape around the box and sponged the inside with Pumice Stone Distress ink to create a vintage look.  Then I removed the tape and matted onto a piece of red card stock.  Then I distressed the edges of the red paper.  I stamped the EE0197 Naughty or Nice sentiment onto white paper and cut it out with angles to create a whimsicle look.  I cut out different papers to make banners and I used the Scor Buddy to make the score lines, which I then sanded to make them stand out.  Finally, I cut out the Snowflake die and stamped the images in the center with the new CLR038 Snowflake Insert clear stamp set. Throw all the elements together and you have a Vintage, Christmas Collage!   The stamps and dies are now available to purchase in stores or online.

Fall Flutters

Welcome to Day 2 of our PPRS blog hop.  We have lots more to show you so, I hope you enjoy what you see!

You should have come from Angela's blog.  If not, start on the Prickley Pear blog and hop along, that way you won't miss anything!

Here I am using the JJ0087 Fall Migration stamp from the new holiday release as my focal point.  I cut it out with a circle die.  Leaving the die over the image, I then sponged some Mustard Seed and Weathered Wood Distress ink on the background.  I then removed the die.  This is popped up on Bo Bunny paper.  The fancy zig zag you see is from cutting out a border die from Cheery Lynn out twice and this was the result of the "waste" piece.  It was perfect for an embellishment!  Then I used the FF0179 Harvest Flourish along the bottom with the Autumn Days sentiment.  Then I finished the card with Candi.


This is the last stop of the hop for today...thanks for hopping with us!  Make sure that you commented along the way for your chance to win one of two fabulous prizes.

A Cheshire Cat

.
Welcome to the first day of the Prickley Pear Blog Hop.  If you have come from Michelle's blog you are on the right track.

I am using the new CLR017A Cat 2 Clear Set.  I thought this looked exactly like the Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland, so I colored him purple!  Then I added the fence for him to perch on.

The flowers are from the Spring Poinsettia clear set and cut out with the matching Poinsettia Leaf die. The leaves are cut out with the Leaf Die Set from a green decorator paper.  The sentiment is also from the Cat 2 set and stamped on a tag that is a Cheery Lynn die.


You have completed the blog hop for today!  The stamps will be available in the store on Tuesday.  
Be sure you commented on every hop post along the way for your chance to win one of two fabulous prizes.  See you tomorrow!

Happy Camping

Here is another card that I made during my "stamping marathon".  I used the Camping tent from Prickley Pear, as my focal point of this card.  I used the pieces of the Zig, Zag Washi tape from We R Memories to add some extra embellishments.  The Hiking Boot Prints is an embossing folder from Darice.  Then I had the Flourish cut out with a Cheery Lynn Die.  The sentiment is from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps, as well as the small Winters Lovebirds.  I love this petite stamps to add little somethings to the card...that still needs a little something:)  See more great cards on the PPRS blog!  And remember...next week Monday starts the PPRS blog hop featuring the brand new Fall/Winter holiday stamps...so check us out!

Whoo's Thankful

I had a stamping day last month with my Best Friend, Michelle.  This was one of the cards that I made that day.  Most of the elements on this card were odds and ends that I had laying on my craft table.  I love what can be created by throwing some of this and a little of that on the paper.  I also challenged myself to using Washi Tape on most of my cards that day.  Here I used the Washi tape to add some color and texture to the lower corner.  The Owl with Bird, Thanks to you sentiment and the flowers stamps are from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.  Check out more card ideas on the PPRS blog.  Also...there will be a blog hop starting on September 1st.  The Design Team has been working hard to make cards that will be sure to inspire you for the upcoming holidays...so stay tuned!!

Vintage Ornaments

I cut out the ornaments with the Ornaments die from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.  Then I stamped the Victorian Ornaments onto white cut out bulbs and colored them with Copic Markers. I then cut out some Holly Leaves with the die and then stamped Holly Leaves onto the cut out pieces.  These leaves are perfect to add a little more "pizzazz" to the card.  I popped up the ornaments onto the card.  Finally I stamped the sentiment onto a small tag and adhered it to the card.  The PPRS blog is the next stop for more ideas to brighten your Monday morning!
