Creating with Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps

Hey all! Thursday is post day over at the Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps blog. You’ll find fantastic new projects from the Prickley Pear Design Team. We rotate weeks, so you’ll also find a post here from me once per month and today happens to be that day!

I had a card earlier this week for our Wicked Washi feature, so today I have just one creation for you. This was actually a New Release project that didn’t get completed quite in time for posting – but that’s okay, because here it is today!

The card features the new sentiment, Life is Not About.

I’ve paired it with the Build an Umbrella clear stamp set and matching dies that I picked up with the March Card Kit.

If you haven’t checked out the Prickley Pear card kits, you should! The March kit happens to now be sold out, but you can check out the April Card Kit, which still has a few available and the recently released May Card Kit. This Umbrella set is one of my favorites in the Prickley Pear inventory, but that Coffee Cup set is probably on the top ten list as well and $29.99 USD for the stamp set and die set, plus extras, is a great deal.

Head on over to the Prickley Pear blog or the Facebook page to check out more great projects. Thanks for stopping by and we’ll see you again soon with Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.

Wicked Washi with Prickley Pear

Hey Everyone! It is not my usual Prickley Pear day, true. But, we have recently introduced some new theme posts on Tuesday over at the Prickley Pear blog and since I have something created for that theme, I thought I’d stick it here on my blog too.

Tracie came up with this weeks’ cool theme, to use washi tape in your creation. I decided to call it Wicked Washi. Now, I actually do not have much washi tape in my craft room. But, since I’m a curious sort and always down for a good theme, I decided to give it a go.

Oh. My. Someone needs to tell me where there is a washi sale RIGHT NOW!! I need it ALL!!

If you are looking for a quick and easy option, washi is for you I was surprised at how quickly this card came together (plus two other bases that I haven’t finished with yet). It’s fun, colorful…what’s not to love?

Here, I’ve used the Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps Butterfly die. These are great dies! It’s a solid die, so it doesn’t bend or warp. It’s the perfect size for a card and it easily cut through the two rows of cardstock – even those finicky corners!

The sentiment comes from Scalloped Circle & Ovals 4 – Floral, which is quickly becoming my new favorite stamp set. I needed a little decoration and the options in this set weren’t quite right for the space I had, so I found that adorable flower in the Hot Air Balloon stamp set.

Check out these fabulous sets and much more in the Prickley Pear store. And, don’t forget to follow us over at the Facebook page for more great inspiration!

Prickley Pear May New Release, Day 5

We’ve been having fun here all week with the New Release at Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps. Sadly, the week is winding down, but I’ve got a few more projects for you to finish up the week.

And, don’t forget that we have regular posts over at the Prickley Pear blog, so swing by every Tuesday and Thursday to check us out.

My first project on this final Friday post is this one featuring Sammie the Sheep and the I Miss Ewe sentiment. This is one of several adorable animals released this week, including Bessie the Cow and Prissy the Pig. Plus, there are five related sentiments that make this a fun set of stamps to work with.

This might be one of my very favorite images this week. I love tulips and I was pretty excited to see this pretty Bucket of Tulips. It’s one of many new florals in the store.

If you see anything you like, don’t forget that there is free shipping on orders over $15 until midnight on Sunday May 14th. Use the code FREESHIP in the coupon box upon checkout.

Thanks for hanging out with me this week! We’ll see you again soon with more great goodness from Prickley Pear.

Prickley Pear May New Release, Day 4

Welcome back, everyone! If you’re here for the first time this week, then you’ll want to know that we’re celebrating the May New Release with Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.

There are lots of newly available goodies in the store and they’re all handily located in the New Release section of the website. Keep adding a few to the cart to make your total over $15 and you’ll receive free shipping too with the coupon code FREESHIP at checkout.

This New Release has three fantastic new fairy images, plus their fantastical friend, Della the Dragon. I paired Della with the Let Your Faith Be Bigger sentiment. Just a note, those easy floral embellishments come from the Poinsettia Leaf Die, available in the store.

I also like this new Prickley Pear Bicycle stamp. It was the perfect match up with this sentiment from the Scallop Circle and Oval 4 Floral set.

I won’t leave you now! I’ll be back tomorrow with my final two projects of the week. See you then with more new release options from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.

Prickley Pear May New Release, Day 3

Is your midweek mojo in need of some inspiration? Good thing the Prickley Pear team is here for you. It’s Day 3 of the New Release with Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps and I’ve got some cuteness to show you today.

This is Frog on Mushroom. It’s such a FUN image to color! I love mushrooms somehow and even better when there’s a frog sitting atop it, right?

If you want to see this guy colored differently, swing by the blog today. Two of my fellow Design Team members have gorgeous alternatives with him today.
