PPRS Release - Build A Cupcake Set

Welcome back!!  Here are some more of the New Release from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps. 

We have two new Banner Dies and a Valentine version of the Build A Cupcake set.  They coordinate with previously released dies for both the banners and the cupcakes. 

PPRS Release 1-26

I wanted to create a look of a cake pedestal for this cupcake to sit on.  You can see in the video below how I did that. 



These are great go to stamps to have.   I paired with the sentiment from the Valentine Banner set and this is a perfect card to give a loved one. 

Here is today's video to show how I created this card. 




Don't forget to stop into the Shop today and check out the New Release section of the shop.   Thanks for visiting me this week for another amazing release form PPRS!!

Prickley Pear Stamp Release Week | Valentine Rubber

Hi friends!!  Last week was so busy with the Riley Release, and now this week is going to be full of inspiration for the Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps release!!

I will have posts all week showing some of my fun projects using the new goodies!  But really, there is always WAY too much stuff to fit it all in one week!  So next week I'll be posting from both companies on the things that I didn't share this week. 


So, first up, we have lots of new Rubber Stamps from PPRS.  And I was drawn to this one, called Love Birds,  the cutest owl lovies out there!! 


PPRS Release 1-23

I stamped them and heat embossing them with black EP.  Then I added some reds and pink distress inks.  I wanted an ombre look to the panel.  I got some paper from my Valentine Card Station and also added some black twine and some gems.  

It's very Valentine ready. 

Valentine cards can't be made with out hearts.  We have three great heart stamps releasing this week as well.  The Small, Medium and Large Swirl hearts are HERE in the shop. 

PPRS Release 7

I started with a great water color background, and heat embossed the heart over it.  The sentiment is from the new clear set, Love Banner Set, which I stamped on vellum and stapled to the front.

This is a super simple card to recreate!

  This image is so big and bold.  I kept thinking of a tattoo.  But then I thought of the fun Chalkboard designs that are out there and thought this would work perfect. 

PPRS Release 1-24

I just stamped in white ink, but embossing it would work too.  Then I sponged the edges of the black CS to give it the dusty chalkboard look.  I flipped the CS over and used my scoring board to score some lines around the top three sides. 

On the bottom, I added some read sequin ribbon and a red sparkly button and black twine.  Simple. 


Make sure you check out the New Release section of the store, and venture out to the blog as well this week for more inspiration. 


So, along with the release are some great specials!

More Dress Up Riley | Riley & Co Release

How is everyone enjoying Release Week?  Oh my, there is so much wonderful goodness coming your way this week!  You guys!!  It's great fun!!  

I've enjoyed sharing all of it with you this week and I appreciate all the love I've gotten as well! 


Today I have a couple more creations from the Dress Up Riley set.  A couple of things I really wanted to make when playing with them!! 

Riley Jan release 1b

This funny bone sentiment was perfect for adding a cute lil bow tie to the Riley image.  Paired with some bold print papers and the card turned out great! 


This one was also one I needed to make.  This sentiment was from last release, but when I saw the sombrero, I knew I needed to make this card. 

Riley Jan release 1c

The team has really have great fun with this set as well, so make sure you visit the Riley Blog to see more ideas from this set!


My last card is similar to the one I posted Monday.  I started out with this card, but didn't want to add the shaker part.  So this card features some faux snow and makes a great shaker card for winter.

More Funny Bones | Riley & Co Release

Hey friends!!  More Funny Bones sentiments today - and this one is so perfect for us crafters!!


1-18 Release

I used the new Dress Up Riley, heat embossed him and water colored him.  I stamped the new Funny Bones Sentiment Craftaholic, and die cut with one of the Word Bubble Dies.  

This fun paper is pretty bold but perfect for the painted/crafter type look I wanted.  I ended the card with some sequins and it was perfect!!

New Mushroom Lane | Riley & Co Release

Hi crafty friends!!  I hope you are enjoying Release Week with Riley & Co Stamps! 

We have a great bundle of Mushroom Lane stamps releasing this week too!  I wanted to test out some other coloring mediums with mine this month!  I got a few Prismacolor pencils so these cards are my test products.  wink  

1-19 Riley Release

The Tree Stump House has to be my favorite Mushroom Lane house so far.  I love that big ole flower and the fun wood stump.  I think as a little girl, I would have spent time pretending this was someone's home.  Maybe that is why I can envision this image in color.  

The Mushroom Lane images are fairly large for cardmaking, so I like to keep the rest of the cards pretty simple.  I matted House 3 on some green and then a kraft base.  I die cut the scalloped frame in green as well and laid it on top of everything.  I love the way that finished off a fun colored card.  

1-20 riley

I also wanted to see what these images would look like if I colored them on kraft.  I like how this image turned out.  I added some layers and ran the white through the Big Shot with aa Chevron embossing folder.  Then added some color with sequins. 


January Release

There are 5 new Mushroom Lane images, and you can bundle them all up for $45!!  That is a great deal!  Make sure that you check out all of the New Release HERE on the store!

Riley Release 1-17

I thought this sentiment was very fun and warming, so I wanted to keep it pretty. After I stamped it, I cut it out with this Word Bubble Die.

  I am in love with the corrugated papers, so I  was happy to add that to the card front, with some black twine and a few fun hearts.  The grey and black heart are from the Riley Paper Dolls Accessories pack.  And I found the wood veneer in my stash.

Happy Saturday friends!! 

This the last day you can enter the giveaway on my YouTube channel.  Click HERE to enter! 

Today's card was sharing on the PPRS blog last week as part of my Team Post, but in case you missed it there, I'm sharing it here!  


I really was just messing around when this card came about and I LOVE it.  I was making some random backgrounds with my water colors.  To play with and to have on hand.  I was also digging around looking for my embossing stuff, I think, and I saw the felt.  And that is how the coffee mug was die cut.  It is from the PPRS Coffee Cup Die set, and the sentiment is from Riley & Co.  I also added a couple wood veneer hearts and fortunately was able to match the cardstock base perfectly!  

It turned out so well.  I'm excited!!  

Thanks for the visit today!  I am looking forward to some time in the craft cave on this cold Saturday.  We may venture out for some sledding, but I am excited to be home all day in my PJs.
