Design Team Monday


School is about to start or has started and I think that Autumn is sneaking up on us. Some might want to resist, but for us paper crafters, it’s a time of pure joy. So many occasions to make cards and other projects to, and new stamps everywhere!!! Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps are releasing both new red rubber and new clear stamps set to celebrate the new season.

The Design Team is in Autumn mode and here are a few more teasers of the new release. First up is Angelica:

3 from 1 Scalloped Ovals Clear Stamps Set

We are back with a featured stamp set and three projects made with it. In this way we hope to show you how versatile the clear stamps sets are. :) This month we focus on the beautiful Scalloped Oval Clear Stamps Set and the coordinated Scalloped Oval Die
The Card
Ovals kort 3
On this card I combined three of the stamps to make a framed sentiment piece. I started with stamping the flower frame with a red-ish pink on patterned paper and the sentiment with black inside the oval. Then I fuzzy cut the oval with my beloved scissors. :) To get the black frame I simply glued the cut out piece down on black cardstock and went over it again with my scissors. It’s not perfect like a die, but it’s good enough! :)
Ovals kort 2
To make the piece pop a bit more, I stamped the silhouette flower in black, cut it out and mounted it on the oval with 3D foam and all the flowers got a little yellow center form my paper pen.
The Layout
Ovals lo 1
I had so much fun making this layout. I went a little crazy with the mists and used the stamp set and die to make design elements like a banner and a border.
Ovals lo 2
Here is a close up on the banner. I clear embossed the oval on white cardstock two times and then inked them with distress ink Bundled Sage before cutting them out. I mounted the ovals on the die cut scalloped ovals and cut them in the middle to get four pieces. Three of them I folded over twine and decorated with butterflies.
The last one is placed by the big flower and the border I did with the border stamp. I used the same clear embossed technique and cut it out and tucked it beneath the patterned.
ovals lo 3
The Altered Project
ovals alter 1
I love quick and easy altered projects that can be used as little gifts instead of the traditional flower. And this is a super quick project. I’m giving away a pair of candle holders and candles to go with them. I used the birds oval for this. I simply adore this image. It’s so beautiful and fun to color!!!
Ovals alter 2
I layered old vintage newspaper with vintage lace, the scalloped die cut, ribbon and finally the cut out stamped image. Done. Of course there will be a card to go with it. :)

Red Rubber Sneak Peak

Hi folks! Happy mid week!!!

I have a fall card using one of the new red rubber stamps that will be up in the shop shortly. I’ve teamed it up with leafs from the oh so gorgeous Oak and Maple Leaf Clear Stamps Set. They are cut out with the coordinated Oak and Maple Leaf Die.

Fall Harvest 1

The red rubber leaf wreath is stamped with different colors of Distress inks. I started to ink the whole stamp up with Wild Honey and then went over parts of it with Peeled Paint and Festive Berries. The colors blend together nicely.

Fall Harvest 2

I didn’t have any orange ribbon, so I used the Wild Honey Distress ink and used a blending tool to ink in a white satin ribbon. Think it turned out nicely. :)

We’ll give a big shout out once the new red rubber is up in the store!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
