PPRS Project Shares

Hey everyone! It's been some time since I have been able to post. For some reason, Blogger just inadvertently stopped working on my computer. I would type up my post and it refused to save it. I would type up the post on the day that I wanted to post it and it would refuse to publish it. I have cleared my cookies, rebooted my computer, and finally became so frustrated, I asked my handy dandy boyfriend for help. And voila, it is finally working! So super excited!!!

So, now that I have Blogger up and running again, I want to share a couple of projects with you since I haven't been able to share them for the past few weeks.

First up is this vintage-inspired card using Sewing Ad and a newly released red rubber stamp called 5 Vintage Ladies. I thought these two images paired really well together. Do you see that metal flower? I made that flower using Pepsi cans and a small silver bead for the center. Came out pretty cute, huh? The papers used were from Tim Holtz' Crowded Attic paper pad.

Next up is a tag I made using mixed media. Do you know that stuff they sell in the craft store called Snow-Tex? It's used to make realistic looking snow on craft projects. Well, I pulled my jar out and decided I wanted to add some texture to my project. I used some of the Snow-Tex mixed with some Lindy's Stamp Gang Magical Micas in order to color it. It was really fun and looks really neat, as well!

To give it some even more texture, I sprayed over the Snow-Tex with some Goosebumps Texture Spray. LOVE the result! This tag features stamps from the Hibiscus 2 stamp set (which I clearly can not get enough of) and the Sunflowers and Mini Hibiscus.

Well, that's it for today. For some more PPRS inspiration, please be sure to stop by the PPRS blog to see the other gorgeous creations that have been created to share with you. Thanks so much for stopping by!

PPRS DT Monday

Hi everyone! Today, I would like to share a project with you using the MFT Wednesday sketch.

I really loved this sketch and thought it was perfect to use with these papers and PPRS clear stamps.
 For my card, I used the PPRS Build A Bird 2 stamp set along with the Clearly Beautiful Dragonflies Clear Stamp Set. Super fun card!!

That's my share for the day! Please stop on over at the PPRS blog to find loads of inspiration from the DT! Have a great week!!

Card Patterns Sketch 168

Prickley Pear is sponsoring the prize this week over at Card Patterns. Melissa and I played along this week and would like to share our projects.

Here is the sketch:

Here is my take:

I used PPRS new release Sunflowers and Mini Hibiscus along with their previously released Build A Bird 2 clear stamp sets.

It was super fun to play along! I encourage you to stop by the Card Patterns site and join us!
There is a great prize up for grabs...just sayin'.
