Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the Prickley Pear Rubber Stamp Blog Hop
You have just come from Kina's blog...so this should be your last stop.
If you started here, be sure to go to the PPRS blog and make your way through the beautiful projects that the Design Team has made up for you!

Today I am using the Couple on a Bench.  This is a versatile stamp that can be used for Valentines Day, Anniversaries or just a "Sitting Here Thinking about You" card.  The first card, I stamped the couple and cut them out to pop up onto the card.  I cut out the heart with a Cheery Lynn Designs die.  Then for the inside of the heart, I cut out another heart and cut out the heart from this piece.  That way I would have a pattern for the heart that would fit perfectly into the lacy heart.   The lacy border is a die from Cheery Lynn Designs.  Add some faux stitching around the patterned paper with the ScorBuddy and the ScorBug.  Now you have an Old-fashioned, romantic card!

For this next card.  I stamped the couple onto cream cardstock, then cut them out with the Cheery Lynn Rectangle Stackers Dies.  Then I cut out the blue frame with the next two sizes of the Rectangle dies  This time I used the smaller heart die.  This die set comes with two sizes of hearts in one package.  That way, they are not too big and not too small, but just right!  Then I added some corners and a sentiment to complete the card
I hope you enjoyed seeing what is new and exciting at Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.  Don't forget to leave a comment on each blog for a greater chance to win the Clear Sets and Dies that are pictured below.   Later this week you will see some more of the new Clear Sets, so come back again!
For another peak at the prize...

Both of your cards are beautiful! I really love the couple on the bench image. I have been trying to decide which card is my fav. That was almost impossible, but I finally decided on the first one, mainly because I love that lacy heart diecut! lol However,anyone would love to get either of these lovely cards! Thanks for sharing!
