Prickely Pear Blog Hop

Welcome to Prickley Pear’s new release of Valentines and Steampunk themed Red Rubber Stamps!

To celebrate this new release we are having a three day long Blog Party with loads of inspirations by the Design Team and a give away! One happy participant will win a $ 15 gift certificate to the web shop. All you have to do is leave a comment on each of the participating blogs and tell us what you think about the new release. Last day to enter is Sunday 15th midnight EST. The winner will be drawn randomly at one of the participating blogs, and will be presented on the Prickley Pear Blog on Monday.

For my blog hop project, I created a Valentine card using the brand new Ride With Me red rubber stamp.

Isn’t this image just the sweetest thing? I really love the vintage, nostalgic feel. Reminds me of old-time Valentines from my childhood.

Not only is Ride With Me an adorable image, it’s very versatile, too. It looks great stamped as both an outline image, or filled in like I did here. For this project, I added detail through a combination of coloring with Copics and Prisma pencils, and paper piecing. Added even more detail by popping up a second piece of the front of the car on foam dots for dimension.

Created lots of layers for my card using my favorite kraft cardstock and patterned papers. A folded glassine bags holds a grungy prim tag that I stamped with the new Vine Flourish red rubber stamp in bright pink ink. Lots of trims in different textures, a snippet of doily, and a vintage button are the finishing touches.

I hope you’ve enjoyed our Valentine and Steampunk release. Thank you all for hopping along with us. You’ve now come to the end of the hop. If you missed anything at all, you can start at the beginning on the Prickely Pear blog.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I’ll see you back here tomorrow for the reveal of our January Sketch Challenge. Until then, wishing you all a wonderful day.
