Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps is Celebrating the Holiday with Stars and Stripes

When thinking of stars and stripes, many people think of red, white and blue. I picked a more colorful palette.  On the 4th of July, hand churned ice cream (we had a hand cranked ice cream maker and everyone took a turn) was always a part of the celebration. So in honor of the tradition I chose the Build an Ice Cream Cone Clear Stamp Set and matching die.

Check out the other Design Team members take on Stars and Stripes theme for today on the Prickley Pear Blog. All these stamps can be found at Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.

It’s a Celebration at Prickley Pear

You can never have too many birthday cards on hand. This fun card uses the Build a Cupcake Clear Stamp Set and the coordinating die.

On the inside I used VersaMark Ink to create a subtle background paper. To make the card gender neutral I stamped the sentiment with out the flower flourish at the bottom. I also add a small pocket to hold a gift card. Who wouldn’t enjoy receiving this card.

Riley and Co. Card Bonanza for June 2017

It is a card bonanza over at Riley and Co. I have loved using the summer time images of Riley. Here I used the Dress Up Riley Stamps and Basic Die Set, the Riley Sports Clear Stamps and Sport Die Set, the waves from the Summer Fun Die Set, the Nesting Ovals with dots and Moose Sayings 1.

This card with BBQ Riley makes a great guy card. It can easily be changed to a Father’s Day card.

For the front of the card I used Dress Up Riley Stamps and Basic Die Set, the Summer Fun Accessories Clear Stamps and Summer Fun Accessories Dies, and Plant a Seed of Kindness. When you plant a seed of kindness it is fun to see what happens. The inside of the cards is a surprise.

This is one of the new dies designed by Karen Burniston in cahoots with Riley. I have loved woking with Karen’s new dies. This is the Flower Pot Pop-Up Die Set. On the front and inside I also used the Nature’s Edges Die Set, and the label from the Katherine Label Pop-Up Die Set.

Check out the Riley Blog for inspiration from the Design Team.

Stay tuned for more inspiration.

Riley and Co. May 2017 Card Bonanza

I am back this week with the Riley and Co. Card Bonanza.  I have three fun cards to share this week. First up is a step card featuring Felix with a Balloon, although I did cut off the balloon string and attached it with a wire. I also stamped and cut out additional balloons. I used the Now That I Am Old birthday greeting and cut it up to fit on the card. I think the wiggle eyes make the card fun.

Here I used Tucker the dog and the Aspire to Be sentiment. Tucker is thinking about how good Riley is at horseshoes. It looks like Riley isn’t doing too great with two horseshoes on his antlers from the Sports Accessories Clear Stamps and dies and the Square Word Bubble Dies.

But inside the card you can see that there are 2 ringers.  Everything isn’t always what it appears to be. The Happy Father’s Day is part of the Everyday Sayings.

Last is a slider card that is just fun. The stamp is Balloons Riley. Pull the tab at the top ….

to reveal the sentiment inside.

Prickley Pear May 2017 New Release Day 2

It’s Day 2 of Prickley Pear’s May Release. Lola the Fairy is looking beautiful sitting in a bed of spring flowers. This card would be a perfect thank you card with the You Are Simply the Best sentiment. I layered the wings and added Wink of Stella to the magically look. I even stamped the back with the

I am so excited to be part of the Prickley Pear Rubber Stamp Design Team. This week there are two new clear sets (A Build a Row House Set and a Dainty Dragonfly set!) with their matching dies and  33 new red rubber stamps. There is something for everyone in this release, including adorable animals, fairies (Lola, Cora, Lillian and their pet dragon Della!), beautiful flowers and wonderful word sayings!

I had fun creating this card. I used the Small BirdhouseLarge Birdhouse, Tiny Tulip, and the Spring Tulip Large. To create this look, I made several masks from sticky notes. I think this is one of my favorite projects from this release.

Riley and Co. May 2017 Release Week Day 5

Today I am back with the last Mushroom Lane House in the May 2017 Release.  This is the Tree Stump House. I have cut each section of the bark and layered them with various thicknesses of foam tape. The circle was cut using the new Nesting Circles with piercing dots.

Next up is Get Up Get Coffee and Mister  Coffee. It’s great how the new stamps work with the old stamps, makes them very versatile.

I used the Nesting Square Dies with piercing dots to create the border around both the square and the rectangle. For the rectangle I placed it in the corner of the largest square and die cut it. Then I placed the opposite corner into the die and cut it. Now I have the ability to create rectangles with the matching piercing dot border.

Tennis Anyone?

I saved the best for last. Here a used several stamps and dies. I used the Riley Red Rubber Stamps and Dies, the Sports Accessories Clear Stamps and Dies, and Felix the Cat ( there isn’t a die for him so I fussy cut him). The tennis ball is cut with the baseball die, then colored to look like a tennis ball. I drew in the tennis court and net.

Riley and Co. May 2017 Release Week Day 3

It’s spring, but outside it feels more like winter.  I can only dream about the weather on Mushroom Lane. Here at the Butterfly House it looks like a lovely day. I cut the butterflies out and attached them with thin wires (the wire from twist ties work great). This is one of the die Mushroom Lane Houses at Riley and Co. The square was cut using the new Nesting Squares with Pierced Dots.
