Prickley Pear Spring Release...Day 1

I hope you enjoyed all the new Riley and Company cards that we brought to you last week.  This week we have an all new release from Prickley Pear.  These new stamps are simply adorable, so be sure to check them out each day this week. Today I am featuring the new Row Houses clear set and matching dies.
 This first card, I only used the house and roof to create this cute house.  Adding some of the other elements of clouds, trees and the little bird from this set to create a simple scene.  I used the new Riley Pierced Oval Die to create the frame, then embossed the frame with a classic cuttlebug embossing folder.  The Taylored Expression clouds were embossed on light blue paper, then I rubbed Memories white dye ink over the clouds to help them stand out. Finally I used the Home Sweet Home sentiment that is included on this set to create a banner.  This would be perfect for someone moving into a new home!
For this card, I used the extra floor piece to make a second story house.  You can mix and match elements to create the perfect custom house.  I made a watercolor background as the backdrop for the house.  Using a cut out frame that I had laying on my desk, I popped it up onto the card and added all the pieces into it.  Notice the little kitten sitting in front of the house?  Isn't she adorable?  This kitty is also part of this set.  This also has a die included in the matching die set, so it is easy to cut her out and pop her into the picture!  Finally, I stamped the sentiment under the frame.  
I enjoyed stamping, cutting and coloring many of these pieces, then when I was ready to make the cards, I could start mixing and matching all the pieces.  So fun!!  Check out the PPRS blog for more adorable cards.  Order $15 or more this week and receive free shipping.  Just use FREESHIP as the coupon code to get this offer!  Hope you have a fantastic week!
