October is Waxing...

Welcome To Prickley Pear Design Team Monday!    The frost is creeping in to all corners here in Wisconsin...we have a few more fall samples to share with you!  Grab a cup of warm cider and enjoy!
First order of business...we have a new design team member joining us today!  We would like to introduce to you Angela Bode!

Hi!  I am Angie, and for the past 23 years, my husband and I have called Georgia our home.    We live on 3 acres of land and enjoy the change of seasons we see displayed on our little bit of land!  We have two teens, a boy and a girl that keep us hopping from activity to activity! Two felines walked out of the woods over the past 6 years and adopted us so if I am not crafting I am probably cuddling a bit of furry wildness!   I have been happily addicted to paper crafting since May of 2011.  I love playing with die cuts, inks, sprays, paints and stamps!   I am so excited to be guest designer with Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.  I have had so much fun working with the delicate lines of the images.  The beautiful artistry in the designs of Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps make it a breeze to create a beautiful project!  You can see what I have been creating here: I Would Rather Be Stamping  .

Angela's first card features GG0171 Midnight Choir.  Love that the color scheme is simple, it really makes the washi tape and image pop!

Designer Jenn Borjeson using HH0142 Zombie Xing.
The presentation of this card is perfection from the chain link die to the papers and embellishments!

Designer: Tracie Clary using Witch on Pumpkin.  Love the die in black which adds a spiderweb effect!  Great embellishments to house a perfectly colored image!

Designer: Heidi Erickson using EE0168 Brewing a Batch 1, KK0039 Scary Tree.  Love the subtle coloring and shading of the image...and the white gel pen accents!

Designer: Jessica Pascarella using GG0173 Hope Your Halloween.  This is clean and simple simplicity, putting the focus on the sentiment and the only other embellishment a big harvest moon!

Designer: Kina Nunziante using EE0170 Nutty sm, CLR008 Pumpkin Patch, D008 Pumpkin Die.  Love little Nutty all fussy cut on this card with the twine behind to add dimension.

Designer: Michelle Pearson using GG0031 Black Eye Susans, CLR023 Mini Butterflies 2 Clear Set,  D023 Mini Butterfly Die.  I'm bucking the system here....these must be the last flowers of the season..but I am sneaking it in before the snow falls!  I fussy cut them all...just because I'm kinda nuts!  The saying I think has been retired, but you could use it for birthdays or thinking of you cards any time.

Designer:  Brenda Weatherill using HH0140 Spiderweb ATC, FF0164 Homer the Raven.  Love the way the ATC card has the oval cut out and then the hat and the wing are dimensional!
