Hi there,

I'm finally back from vacation!  I'm playing today over at Unity Friday Friends with Flair at the Unity blog . I've had this little image colored up for a while so decided to use it today.  It's called Wondrous its an itty bitty love these! from Angie Blom.  Love her great girl images!!  I used an embossing folder technique from Jennifer McGuire Ink .  I subscribe to her e-mails and she always has great ink techniques.  I applied the lighter color the pink to the embossing folder raised areas first and ran it through on a white piece of card stock, then took it out and rubbed the red on the rest.  Let that dry completly. Easy.  I have been trying to use my embossing folders more.  Quite fun!  Added some stickles and Perfect Pearls. Done. It could probably be used as a Christmas card with the red and green color scheme.

Supplies used:

Hello Friend

Hello all,

Happy Monday! It's time again for more stamping inspiration using Prickley Pear Stamps. No coloring on this one today. I decided to use this paper that has roses on it and added these cute little rose stamps on the printed DP.  I love using wood looking paper as well. I stamped the circle and cut it in half and colored a tiny bit on it. (oops did I say I didn't color). Fit for a friend indeed! Stop by thePrickley Pear Blog and see what the team has been up to!

Hello Friend

Hi there,

It's time for some inspiration using Prickley Pear Stamps .  Today I  chose to do a mostly black and white card with just a hint of color.  The inspiration is this cute Starburst Daisy stamp embossed with black embossing powder and 3 colors pink, yellow and orange.  I found this embossing folder that matched my paper at Joann's its a Cuttlebug. I love this sentiment, its embossed as well. Stop by the Prickley Pear Blog and see what the team has for you this week. There will be a blog hop for the new fall release stamps in a few weeks. I will tell you more about that next week so stay tuned!

Fairy On Lotus

Good Morning all,

It's time once again to share a card for Inspiration Monday over on the Prickley Pear Blog .  I chose to use this sweet fairy on a Lotus. So fun to color as well. Any little girl would love to receive this one for a birthday don't ya think?  I made her wings sparkly with a Wink Of Stella clear glitter pen.  Have you tried these yet?  So fun to use.  We will be having a blog hop starting Friday the 15th, 16th and 17th showing new stamps!! So come on back Friday to see what's new!  Oh and stop by the blog today and see what the rest of the design team has to share.

Grow In Grace

Hello there,

It's Inspiration Monday for Prickley Pear Stamps and I tried a new technique for me with texture paste. I really love this stuff!  I used a stencil from Memory Box called texture Mesh.  The dimentional paste I used is from Deco Arts. When it's dry its very flexible so it won't crack.  It does take a while to dry though about 4 hrs. So you have to plan out your project.  I colored it with distress inks.

If Friends Were Flowers

Happy Friday,

I'm playing over at Unity today with a card and a fun technique I saw over at SCS and a tutorial from GirlGeekLovesStampin on Utube. It's stamping on embossing folders using ink and Glimmer mist as water! Ever tried this. It's so fun.  I used Unity's KOM for March called Reason Someone Smiles.  I just love their stamps!!  DP is Bazzill Miss Tegan Sue, add a few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and twine.  I love the watercolor affect this has.
