You've Got Mail!!.....Art

Happy Tuesday, Prickley Pear fans!!

Here at Prickley Pear, we're constantly looking for new inspiration to bring to you using the Prickley Pear collection of stamps. Our Design Team member, Irit, came up with the awesome idea of creating Mail Art. 

What is Mail Art? 

It's decorated envelopes, making both your creation and the package that carries it to it's destination beautiful and artistic!

And look at how wonderfully the mail art turned out!

First up, since it was her lovely idea, is the talented Irit. Irit created this colorful envelope with the Blobby Flowers 2 clear set. Can you spot her use of the Live, Dance, Laugh sentiment? 

Sharon has used the Row House set for her beautiful mail art. This set is perfect for adding that additional flare to your envelope.

Heather masked off the centre of her envelope with the Flourished Oval die cut and then stamped Petunia around the frame.

And, Heather had so much fun with the first piece of mail art, that she had to give it another try! This envelope uses the Hibiscus 2 clear set, the Bicycle red rubber and the sentiment and tri-floral stamp from Scalloped Circle & Oval 4 Floral clear set


Thanks for stopping by today to check out our adorable mail art. 
Why don't you give it a try? Link up your Mail Art in the comment section and I'll come visit your artwork.

You Spin Me Round

Today's post might seem like you're going around in circles. 

Let's see how the Design Team has interpreted today's Round theme. 

Heidi's gone with round wheels on her creation. This fantastic image is Antique Car.


Sharon's gone round and round with the Dainty Dragonflies and the Life Doesn't Have to Be Perfect sentiment.

Tracie's rounded out her creation with her circle dies. They're perfect to feature the Circles Set Sentiments and Flowers clear set.


And Heather rounds out the day with her card, featuring Jar Full of Daisies. Sentiment and the adorable bee come from the Spring Poinsettias set.

March of the Butterflies

Have you noticed the catch phrase on the Prickley Pear website?
Where classic meet whimsy. 

And to me, nothing means classic and whimsy more than a the whimsical wings of a classic butterfly. 
 Prickley Pear has a fantastic variety of butterflies.  

Check out the whimsical wings from the Design Team.

Irit's beautiful card uses the Butterfly die. This die goes with three separate clear sets. These butterflies happen to be from the Butterflies set. Also used here is the Happy Anniversary sentiment. 


Lisa's paired the Dainty Dragonflies set with the Butterflies 2 set.


 There are a few other sets that use this Butterfly die. Here, Tracie's used the big butterflies from the Dragonflies 2 stamp set. 

If the Butterfly die is a bit large for you, don't forget we also have a set of Mini Butterflies. Lisa's used the Mini Butterfly clear set here.


Thanks for stopping by today to check out our wonderful butterfly creations. You'll find us here every Thursday and Tuesday with more classic and whimsical creations.
