PPRS Monday

Today is a gorgeous Monday in Arizona and I hope the weather is just as beautiful where you are as it is here. What I like most about Mondays is the fact that I get to share a new project with you featuring the stamps by Prickey Pear. Today's project features two red rubber stamps, Tree Heart and The Mind Determines.

I decided to use the Tree Heart stamp to make my own background paper, stamping it randomly using some brown ink on kraft paper. Looks pretty neat, huh?

That's all I have to share today. Be sure to stop by the PPRS blog for some more inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

A Little Computer Illiterate on this PPRS Design Team Monday...

So, I am NOT liking the new Blogger. Just when I get accustomed to the LAST changes Blogger made, they go and switch it all around on me again! Now, normally I don't mind change. I can navigate around a website easy peasy. Not today. Today, I have the impatience of a five year old at an ice cream shop. I am not digging it.

Ok, let's put all the griping aside and get on with today's pretty. Today, I want to share with you a card I made using PPRS Symphony red rubber stamp. I love this stamp, because being a nature girl at heart, and always out and about at the lake or in the woods, I can definitely relate to listening to the songs of nature. It truly is peaceful and reminds me that even among the hustle and bustle of everyday life, I should always take the time to just listen...

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of blogland today! Hope you will take the time to stop by the PPRS blog for some more amazing DT inspiration by some of the most talented ladies I know.

Stamps: Symphony (PPRS)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko), Walnut Stain (Ranger)
Paper: Cardstock (Staples), Patterned Papers (Basic Grey)

Prickley Pear Vintage Inspiration


Happy Monday! Hopefully, you are reading this after your taxes have been e-filed or mailed, and you're not in a frantic rush to get them finished by tomorrow's deadline...not like I would know anything about that....

Since it is a fabulous Monday morning, I have a Prickley Pear project to share with you. It features an awesomely gorgeous vintage-inspired image called Sewing Ad. Absolutely LOVE vintagey sewing ephemera so this stamp is right up my alley!

I used some Tim Holtz patterned paper, Prima flowers stained with Lindy's Stamp Gang Moonshadow Mist in Burnished Bronze, some sequiny trim from my stash, and some vintage buttons that used to belong to my grandmother.

Thanks for taking a peek at my card! Now, hop on over to the PPRS blog where you will find a ginormous amount of inspiration from other PPRS DT members!

See ya!

PPRS What a Hoot!!

Hello! I hope everyone had a fantastic Easter weekend! My kids had a wonderful time receiving surprises from the Easter Bunny, as well as searching my yard and grandma's yard for treat-filled eggs!

It is Monday again and time for another PPRS Design Team project share! I am totally addicted to Crate Paper's old Farmhouse line and yet again, I used it for my card. I just loved how the floral prints fit with the cute Mini Owls Clear Stamp Set. This set is totally adorable, as you will see! I love how you can mix and match the owls' wings with the different owl images.
All images were colored with Copic Markers. The owls were stamped on white cardstock, fussy cut, and then pop-dotted onto the tree. The edges were all inked with my fave TH Distress ink, Walnut Stain.

That's it for today! Please be sure to stop by the PPRS blog to get inspired by all the creations the DT has created just for you! Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
