This Poinsetta Blossoms stamp is one of the new Prickley Pear Holiday stamps. I love the festiveness of these beautiful flowers. The first poinsettia is cut out in a square, but with the petals hanging off the frame. The second Poinsettia is cut out and popped up onto the card. The sentiment is from the Victorian Ornaments 3 stamp set. These clear sets have many small and perfect sentiment to add to the front of cards. Check out more beautiful samples on the PPRS blog.
Dia de Muertos means Day of the Dead. This is a Mexican holiday to celebrate and to remember those that have departed. This holiday is celebrated on November 1, which I know is still a few weeks away. In honor of that holiday, here is a card that uses the new Cats 2 stamp set along with the Pumpkin die and stamp set. The fall colors that I used on this card go with the autumn season more that is used for the holiday. Most costumes during this event are very colorful and bright. Even though this isn't a holiday we celebrate, it is nice to often remember those that were special to us and have past on. So wishing you a happy fall and bountiful harvest!

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!
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.
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.

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.
