Prickley Pear Blog Hop

Welcome to the Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps Blog Hop! Today it is my pleasure to introduce a new line of clear stamps and coordinating dies.

Visit the Design Team’s daily releases and the Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps Blog from May 18 until May 21 to have the chance to win one of four prize packages worth $50 in PPRS products. Each of the prize packages will feature one of the new release sets: Build a Bird, Hibiscus, Build an Owl, and Butterfly.

Today, I am featuring the Build an Owl set and coordinating die.

For this first card, I used one of the stamps from the set to create a patterned background. Then I added my three owls - these make me giggle. It makes me think of three girlfriends gossiping and laughing. I die cut the owl parts and then stamped them - with the clear stamps it is a snap to line them up.

My second card is a Halloween one. I created the background using different colored Distress Inks. I perched my spooky little owl on its own branch. Cute!

So here are the blog hop details: each day you have more than one chance to win! The hop starts at the Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps Blog. Leave a comment on the blog for one chance to win. Then hop on over to the day’s release blogs and leave comments there for more chances to win. So easy! AND you will get to see some fabulous paper projects featuring the new sets.
