New Stamps – and some oldies!!!

Hi folks! This week Prickley Pear releases four new fab clear stamp sets with coordinating dies. I’ll show you “my” set and samples tomorrow. Today you have the chance of winning the gorgeous Cardinal set and die over at the Prickley Pear Blog. While waiting for my turn, I had to play with some of my other PPRS stamps. Like my new Hot Air Balloon set.

Fly with me ballong Aren’t the stamp simply gorgeous!?!  This is a “free” interpretation of this week’s CPS sketch.

The set has a beautiful airplane too. I made a super clean and simple card and I loooove how it came out. It’s only stamps and cardstock, but sometimes it’s enough!

fly with me flygplanBut I must confess, when I had that one done yesterday night, I had an itching feeling in my fingers. It was the layering addiction. Sooooo I made another card for Svensk Scrapbooking’s embossing challenge. Lot’s of dry and heat embossing on this one. I love how the background stamp turned out. I clear embossed an old music paper (Mozart, sorry!!!) with the background stamp and then ironed it so that the embossing sort of disappeared. All the six stamps used are from Prickley Pear.

Thinking of you emboss I hope you check back tomorrow for the release of a new fun and versatile clear stamp set and die.

Take care and thanks for stopping by!
