Prickley Pear Spring Release - Trio of Cards!

This is my third post today...scroll down to see cards featuring The Rubber Cafe, Really Reasonable Ribbon and Fred, She Said Digital Designs!



The Prickley Pear design team is featuring the new spring release this week! My first card features a new Beautifully Clear set that includes four new circle stamps that coordinates with the Scalloped Circle Die. The set also includes 6 tiny bouquets, 3 tiny contains for them and 6 sentiments!

I combined the new set with the Dandelion Bunch image which I stamped with Stazon ink on acetate. I ran my acetate through my Xyron machine and then covered it with Art Institute Glitter.

I used the tiny coordinating bouquet to stamp my background panel. I used the coordinating circle stamp and verse also from the clear set. So fun!!

For my second card today, I used three of the tiny bouquet images and one of the sentiments from the new set. I used a card with three holes cut from the front of the card. The flowers are matted on green circles inside the card and peek through the windows. I pierced borders around each little bouquet.


My final card today features another one of the new circle images in the set. I stamped it randomly on my background panel in ColorBox chalk ink before running the panel through my Cuttlebug Victoria embossing folder.


I added a flower from the Clearly Beautiful Flowers set and a dragonfly from the Clearly Beautiful Dragonflies set.


The dragonfly is stamped on some fun coated paper that resembles the wings of a dragonfly!
