Prickley Pear Team 1

Today Team 1 is up over at the Prickley Pear Blog

The stamp set I am using for this card is Bold Daisies.  The Butterfly is from the Clear Mini Butterfly set and the Happy Birthday is from the Circles Set.  I had fun coloring this image with my copic markers.  I find that a little black accent really makes the image stand out.

I hope you enjoyed the card.  Be watching this week because I have alot of new creations for Prickley Pear.  You have to just love the choices they have.

Thanks for stopping by.

PIP Challenge #1721


Time again for another challenge from Pammie's Inky Pinkies Challenges.  This challenge (#1721) is Anything Goes as always.


This week is sponsored by Fred She Said Stamps.  As always I love her digital stamps. 


For my card today I used the image "Doodled Floral Corner Digi". I printed the image off on 90 lb watercolor paper which works amazing for digital stamps.  I then colored this fun image with my zig water color markers.  I thought it turned out to be a bright and cheerful card.

Be sure and check out what the rest of the design team has come up with.

Mystery Image #40

Today is the reveal day for our Mystery Image #40.  This month Carol chose our image.  I must say that I really enjoyed this image. 
The image is from Art Impressions and is from the Live, Love, Laugh stamp set.  I found this Stampin Up paper in my stash and then found copic markers to match my background.  As I get older, I appreciate the humor of birthdays.

Thanks Carol for a great challenge.

Dueling Darlings May

The 15th of the month brings around a challenge that I am in where we have someone pick a challenge for the month.  This month Judy and Debbie selected the theme which is flowers.  Debbie selected a flower stamp from Stampin Up. 

I colored the image with my copic markers and I know it doesn't show very well but I colored 2 images and then cut the bottom part of the petal out of the flower and paper pieced it on top with a pop dot to give it some dimension.  I love flowers so of course I loved this challenge.

Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps May Release

Today is the last posting for the May Release from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.  But don't worry, I have a few more cards scheduled for this month.
I just love this little frog on a toadstool.  Isn't it adorable?  I decided to put  a sentiment on the clouds.  It is from the Dragonflies 2 Clear Stamp Set.  I colored the images with my copic markers and added a few flowers in my grass.  I also used the Flourish Oval Die to give the card a little dimension.

Thanks for joining me on this May Release from Prickley Pear.  I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have.

Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps May Release

Day 3 of the Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps May Release.  If you have checked out this release, I know you have seen something that you must have.
This is one of my favorite sets from this new release.  You have to love tulips and this set just made them stand out.  I colored the image with my copic markers.  The sentiment is also from the May release.  I used the Flourish Oval die to go around the image and outline.

See you tomorrow for another creation.
