Vintage Viewpoint



Welcome to this weeks Vintage Viewpoint where we take a look at some of the older options in the Prickley Pear inventory.

We just recently finished our May New Release on the blog and there were a number of great bird stamps released. 

Like this Large Birdhouse (also available in a small size) or Momma and Baby Bird.

These stamps join several other bird themed options already in the Prickley Pear catalog. And that's why today I devote our Vintage Viewpoint to the Birds of Prickley Pear.

Let's start out with another Bird with Birdhouse.


Or this pretty Songbird.


This is Black Capped Chickadees, but I think it's been adjusted into a pretty spring bluebird!

 

And finally, this Owl with Bird makes a perfect pair!

 

Looking back on these creations makes me want to dig out my craft supplies! Not to mention order a few of these for my own collection - which one first? Owl with Bird or Songbird? 

You find these and many more feathered friends in the Prickley Pear store.  

Don't forget to come find us on our Prickley Pear Facebook page and we'll see you next week with our Team Inspiration!

Lovely Lace



Welcome to Tuesday at the Prickley Pear blog where we take our theme of the week and let lose our creativity. 

This week, we're working incorporating Lace into our designs. 
Lace is the perfect accent for Prickley Pear cards, since it's classic and elegant, just like many of the Prickley Pear images.  

Check out with the Design Team did with the Lace challenge.

Irit leads off with this pretty card using Love Swans. Don't they look awesome in blue? The sentiment is from Heart Key Crown.
 
 

Heather has added a lace knot to her card. Background panels use images from both Hot Air Balloons (diamonds) and the Coffee Cup Clear set (beans). Images and sentiment also come from the Coffee Cup clear set, along with the matching die set. Finally, the background has been stamped with Coffee Stain

 

And our final card today comes from Lisa. She's added a pretty lace border to this card, also using the Black Eyed Susan Border and Memory Becomes a Treasure sentiment.

 

Just lovely! Three great cards, three great looks...and all using lace!

Friday Favs Replay

 
Did you catch the Friday Fav's with Prickley Pear?

Della comes by request, from shows and emails. She's a beautiful couture dragon and she's a fantastic addition to any card - even "man" cards.

 

Della was released just a few weeks ago. Here's what the Design Team created with her.

From Sharon

From Heather

 As you can see, Della looks good in most colors. Wouldn't a blue dragon be fun? What about purple?

Check out the New Release section of the Prickley Pear store for Della and her fairy friends - Lillian, Lola & Cora.

Thursday Design Team Inspiration



Happy Thursday!

I'm delighted to bring you another week of inspiration with the talented Prickley Pear Design Team. 

Today we have a variety of themes for you, which is the beauty of these Thursday posts. 

Irit has created this card using the Dancing Couple 
and Heart Key Crown clear set.

 

Here's Michelle with Prissy the Pig and I'm Sow Excited For You. The Blobby Flowers 2 and Blobby Flowers die make the perfect embellishment!

 

Heather is putting her new Build An Umbrella set to good use, pairing it with Life is Not About.

 

And here Heidi shows us the new Dainty Dragonflies set, with matching Dainty Dragonflies dies.
(Sentiment from Riley & Company)

 

Isn't that a beautiful set of cards this week? I just love seeing what this team comes up with! 

We're back with more next Tuesday and we hope to see you here!
