PPRS Christmas in July

Yes, I know. Independence Day has not even been over with for a month yet, and yep, I'm already thinking Christmas. Since Arizonans tend to take on 110+ degree days in the summer, I yearn for cooler temps and lower electricity bills. This is what inspired me to bust out my Christmas Prickley Pear Stamps. While it may not make the weather cooler, it sure did take my mind off of the extreme temps for awhile!

For this card, I used a red rubber stamp, Evergreen with Star, as well as the sentiment from the Ornament Set 2 clear stamp set. The tree image was colored with Copics and the sentiment was stamped on a McGill file tab punchout. I used some Twinery twine in Maraschino and topped it off with a little bow embellie from Recollections.

That's my little share for today! Be sure to stop by the PPRS blog for some more amazing inspiration. Thanks so much for taking a peek!

PPRS Monday Project Share-Vintage Trains ATC

I am a person that super loves vintage anything. When Nicole sent me the Vintage Train ATC red rubber stamp from PPRS new release, I could not wait to give it some fresh ink. I wanted to incorporate travel-inspired papers in my card. However, I do not travel much. Therefore, my "travel" stash is nonexistent. However, the fact that we recently returned from our trip made me go to our local Big Lots and I found a stack of papers by a paper company called Momenta. We had bought the girls disposable cameras so that they were able to take photos on our trip. Therefore, I just had to buy these papers so that they can scrapbook their adventures. I found this to be the perfect time to snag some scraps and incorporate them into my own card.

I absolutely {heart} that image!! Aside from the Vintage Train ATC stamp, I also used the "Hello" sentiment found in the "Hibiscus 2" clear stamp set.

That's my share for today! I'm off to go put my blog post together to share the photos of our amazing trip and all of the gorgeous sights we saw! Have a splendid week!!

PPRS Monday Share and ROAD TRIP!!!

Hey all! As you read this, my family is headed on a road trip across the beautiful state of Arizona in order to see some of the natural wonders our state has to offer. Today, we are headed to Bearizona, a wildlife park where visitors can drive through and see many wild creatures in the comfort and safety of their own vehicles including elk, bears, bison, wolves, etc. Next, we are heading north up to the Grand Canyon. I have been there as a child, but my children have yet to experience it. We will also visit Four Corners, Meteor Crater, and the Petrified Forest. I will definitely have to share photos!!!

Today I have a cute card to share featuring stamps from PPRS newest release, Flower Cluster and Best Mom. I used Prima's Nature's Garden as my patterned papers of choice.

That's all for today! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fantastic week!!!
