The season of peace…

I’m in rubber (and clear) heaven. New stamps from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps arrived the other day and it’s like Christmas!

I had to start playing right away. First I inked up 2 Pinecones stamp. I used my Tombow pens, a deep moss green and a chocolate brown and it worked perfect. I didn’t even have to mist the stamp with water. So I used the brown Tombow to the sentiment as well (which is from the Cardinal clear set).
The Season 1b
I added some cinnamon stickles on the pine cones and it sparkles beautifully. I used Card Pattern’s beautiful sketch #83.
CASE Study has a new card by Mariana Grigsby up as inspiration for this week’s lift challenge. It’s awesome! And here is my take:
The Season 2b The stamps used are Prickley Pear’s Cardinal set with coordinated die. Love this stuff. The bird is stamped with Distress ink and embossed with a beautiful sparkly embossing powder. It doesn’t photograph well, that’s sad. But trust me, the bird sparkles and is beautiful. :):):)
Thanks for stopping by!
