PPRS New Release Blog Hop Day 1

 
 
 
 
 
Hello Bloggers. Prickley Pear is celebrating their new Fall/Winter release with a three day blog hop and I'm so glad you're here to join us! My Teammates and I want to give you some inspiration as we are heading into this season as we leave summer behind for another year.
We are giving away some awesome prizes on this hop, so make sure to leave a comment on each team members blog for a chance to win!
Prize #1
 
Prize #2

 
Because I am here in the mid-west and am so reluctant to let summer go, and the thought f winter makes me shudder, I have chosen a butterfly to build my card with today. This new clear stamp set coordinates with the ever so popular "Steampunk" look.  Prickley Pear has some awesome products in this theme. The set I have used on my card is CLR025B Steampunk Gears 3. Our fearless leader is away slaying dragons (not really, but it sounds cool, huh?) so the new release will not be in the catalog until Sept. 2nd.. Here's my card for day one, and more goodies are headed your way throughout this hop, and I'm so glad you're here!

I colored my butterfly with Copic markers and if you look closely you'll see I have layered two of them so my butterfly looks as if he is fluttering his wings! The sentiment is included in this set along with some gears, two additional sentiments, a dragonfly, and a hot air balloon! I've used a Darice embossing folder, clipped some Cheery Lynn corners to fit. I added some rhinestones to make his trail, used my white jellyroll pen and a little purple stickles to highlight my flowers and three little Candi to complete my card.
Now if you've come from Angela's blog you're on the right track, and the next stop is Brenda's blog  for some awesome design. Now if you'd like to start at the beginning of our hop you can do that here.
thanks for joining me today, times a wastin', so get to hoppin'!
Hugs, Maureen
