Going Batty

Hello everyone! For our blog post this week I decided to do something a bit different. I gave the rest of the design team a break and I took the opportunity to make a special project. We really love Halloween at Prickley Pear and I've already been decorating my house accordingly. For my project today, I made a bat tree out of the two clear stamps Bats and Bats 2 along with the matching Bat die cut. I had so much fun cutting out and coloring my bats that I had to force myself to stop! Check out my tree:

Tree without the lights on and no ornaments.

Purple and Orange lights on with ornaments.

Close up to show all of the different bat designs.

I can't get over how cute this tree is! This really was a fast and easy project that could be adapted for children as well as adults. What do you think?

I hope you have enjoyed my project today. Don't forget to follow Prickley Pear on Facebook so you don't miss out on all of the fun!

Until next week,

Designer Highlight-Heather Bolli

Hello everyone! Today is Designer Highlight and that means I get to introduce you to Heather Bolli! Heather is a very talented designer and always puts a lot of thought and detail into her work. Be sure to stop by her blog and check out her other projects and leave her some comment love.

For her project, Heather made a wall canvas using Prickley Pear clear stamps and dies. Did you know that almost every die coordinates with at least two clear sets? That way you get more versatility out of your goodies!

Check out this canvas! Stickles on the flowers. Glitter paste and sequins on the background.  Flowers in the colors of the rainbow.....beautiful!

Clear sets used: Flowers 2 & Hibiscus 2

I think Heather did a wonderful job, don't you?

I hope you've been inspired to use your stamps and dies in new and exciting ways! Don't forget to follow us on Facebook for even more inspiration! See you next week!
