Prickley Pear Monday Card - 7/29/13

On this card I used 2 different stamp sets and their coordinating dies, Spring Flourished Ovals Clear Stamp Set (CLR033) and Flourished Oval Die (D033) as well as Blobby FLowers 2 (CLR015A) and Blobby Flowers Die (D015). I used Copics to color, B21, 23, 24 and RV52, 55 and 00. 
 And, as always, my photo taking and Photo Shop skills suck, lol, I can never seem to get the colors right.

Last Monday's Prickley Pear Sample - Bloom On!

This card I called "Bloom On" for obvious reasons. I used Clearly Beautiful Hibiscus (CLR002) and the coordinating die Hibiscus Flower and Leaf Die (D002)
The die is by Spellbinder, "bling" by Want2Scrap and paper by DCVW.

Bad, bad Blogger!

I really am, and I apologize. BUT, getting myself and my life ready to be gone a whole week for the CHA convention just took up all my time.
So, the CHA convention was fun. Vegas was cool (actually it was incredibly hot and dry, my eyes burned when I was outside, which wasn't much.) I spent WAY too much money on new merchandise for the store. Look for lots of new stuff from Prima Marketing, Ranger, Tim Holtz (Distress Glitters - woot-woot), The Crafter's Workshop, Bazzill Papers and more. I added Impression Obsession Stamps and Dies to our list of new vendors and we have an awesome new medium called KROMA Crackle coming in from Canada. 
I also just placed an order with Chocolate Baroque for Christmas and Halloween stamps (primarily). Tando Creative for Andy Skinner Stencils is next. This will be a busy week for me, adding all the things and ordering what I didn't get to (or were not represented) at the convention.

Just In!

Just got replenishments for Andy Skinner Stencils/Masks. And a few other ones from the company that carries his.
Also, our last batch of chipboard embellishments from Make It Crafty. Here is a picture of those:
Next I'm uploading the new fun Mixed Media Paper Dolls from Prima. Should be in the store to buy within the hour.

Prickley Pear Flower Cluster

   A friend of mine told me she had pulled out her Twinkling H2O's, the other day. So I decided  to do the same. I misted my pots and let them sit until they were a little "gooey". The I painted/dabbed the stamp  "Flower Cluster" (GG0145)  and let the paint dry on there.
Once dry, I misted it lightly and stamped. You can get numerous images out of this. You will have to re-mist, just don't over-mist like I did. LOL 
I used a Spellbinders die set for the mats, hand painted a white polka dot ribbon with 2 of the same colors I used on the flowers.
I used the Mini Butterfly die (D023) and punched out 3 butterflies, which I then stamped with one of the stamps from the "Mini Butterfly Clear Stamp Set" (CLR023). A little glitter glue around the edges finished the card off.

PPRS Thursday Card

I stamped the "Wildflower ATC Background" (HH0100M) on the ivory cardstock and the pink background paper. "2 Daisy Heads"  (GG0074M) was stamped on chipboard that I painted with Antique Linen Distress Paint, then I "doodled" and added little bling around the edge, and pink glitter glue on the Daisies. I used the "Rosarian" paper collection from Prima and black cardstock for layering,  and chipboard photo corners from Make It Crafty.

It took me forever to finish this. I had everything at hand, just couldn't find the time to put it all together. So I hope you like it. :) 
The stamp sets are from Crafty Individuals and are called "Beside The Seaside" and "Seaside Treasures" and I used a mini chipboard printer tray from Tando Creative. Oh, and the little bit of background paper is by Glitz, called "Uncharted Waters". All of these items available in my store - The Stamproom.
