Think Spring

I am using an oldie but goodie today!  This Girl with Basket is a Prickly Pear Rubber Stamp. I colored with very light shades of Copic Markers.  Then I used the removable tape around the four sides and sponged it with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.  The lattice and border dies are from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I added the Prima flowers for an extra accent tied with a ribbon.  I zapped the ribbon with a heat gun to wrinkle it up a bit.  Then I stamped the sentiment from the Hibiscus  2 Clear Stamp set onto a white tab.  Hope this helps to think springy thoughts! Check out today's PPRS blog for more ideas!

Bird Bath

Here's another card using stamps from the new Spring Release from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.  I am using the Pond of Ducklings stamp that I colored with Copic Markers.  I used some fun bright paper from Bo Bunny as a background.  Then I stamped the Happy Spring sentiment onto a banner and added some Candi for a simple embellishment.  We hope you enjoyed the hop...I know that I sure did!  Check out today's cards too.  Enjoy!

Blog Hop Day 3

Welcome to the third and final day of our blog hop.  If you are following our blog hop, you should have come from Rita's blog. Yesterday, you saw what Little Boys are made of and today you can see what Little Girls are made of!  Edith (HH0174) is colored with Copic Markers.  After I cut the paper down to the size I wanted, I used removable tape around the four sides.  Then I used Gathered Twigs Distress Ink to sponge around the image.  I found these decorater papers in my scrap bin and thought they were the perfect choice for this image.  The lacy border was cut out with a die from Cheery Lynn Designs.  The corner is also a Cheery Lynn die cut out of silver pearlescent paper.  Then I used the flower die from PPRS and the matching flower clear set.  The center of the flowers were made with a cream pearl pen.  Finally I used some cream dotted Candi to finish the card.

Now to continue on the hop, go to Michelle's blog! Contine to leave some comments...we've enjoyed hearing from you.  If  haven't seen the blog hop prizes, here it is:

Blog Hop Day 1...Spring Release!

Spring is coming and we want to show you what's new from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.  Today is the first day of the blog hop.

 If you came from PPRS blog, you are right on track.  From here, you will head on over to 

I am using the HH0176 Singing bluebirds with the DD0228 Little Bird Script.  For the accent behind the image, I used the new D052 Flourished Circle die.  I just cut it in half and glued it to the ends of the oval.  Then I used a piece of cream cardstock to fill in the gap.  Just another way to use this die.  Around the decorator paper, I used the ScorBuddy to score lines 1/4" around the four sides of the paper.  Then I sanded the lines to make them pop.  Finally I added pearls with the Viva Decor Pearl Pen.

Leave a comment on each blog along the way for a chance to win some of the new Spring Release!  The more you comment, the greater your chance to win!  Here is a peak at what you can win:

Happy Valentine's Day!

This Vintage car is perfect for Valentine's Day.  I colored the image with Copic Markers.  I stamped this again and cut out the heart to add a bit of dimension.  This Mini Gear die add a great accent to make this a more masculine card along with the gauze die from Cheery Lynn.  The gauze was sponged with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink to make it more Shabby Chic.  Then I finished the card with the banner and stamped it with True Love.  More Valentine idea...Check out the PPRS blog!

The Language of Love

Today I am using the Love stamp from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.  Valentine's day is fast approaching so it's time to turn our thoughts to love.  This stamp can be used for Wedding and Anniversary cards as well.  I colored the letters with Copic Markers.  Using the lighter color on the bottom and the darker color on top gives it a varigated look.  I then used the Heart Grass and stamped on the decorative paper.  The Distress Markers were used to color directly onto the stamp, then stamped onto the paper.  The first line of the sentiment was stamped onto cream paper and made into a tab to tuck under the large word stamp.  The I cut out the butterflies and stamped with the matching mini butterflies stamp. There are lovely samples on the PPRS blog once again this week too!
