Hello Bloggers. I am sharing my first post today as a member of the Prickley Pear Rubber Stamp Company Design Team. This whole process is a learning curve for me, but fortunately I am joining a great company, team, & a VERY patient team coordinator. There are a few things I feel I need to tell you all before we get started. I am not making excuses for my self, but I am not used to making what are called A2 cards. The Prickley Pear company desires this size for the majority of advertising & promotional purposes. They are 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inches and I have made only 5X7 inch cards for years, so please be patient with me until I get some practice in. :-)
I am learning you can't put my usual tons of things on a small card without making it look messy. For me "restraint" is the key word of the day!
I am happy with this first card as I got make up some flowers with the Blobby Flowers 2 Clear Set &
Blobby Flowers Die that matches it. And I do love to make me some paper flowers! I did some coloring with Copics, a little stacking, some snipping here and there, some shaping, a glitter brad, & pow they jump right off the card! The sentiment I used on this card came from this set also.
I have also used the Heart Oval Insert Die, the Scallop Oval Nesting Die, and the butterflies are from the Scalloped Oval 4 Floral Clear Set. The leaves & flourish are from Cheery Lynn. A MS border punch, ribbon, bling, and last but not least a little filigree corner.
Now remember, April 15th, 16th & 17th is our Blog Hop. The Design Team will be showcasing the new releases & there are some great new things coming your way.
Make sure to some back for that, you don't want to miss it!!
Thanks for stopping by today & we'll see you soon.
