January New Release - Day 5, Part 2

Welcome back, Prickley Pear fans!

This is it, we're at the end of the January New Release. One final post for you with inspiration from all of our Design Team Members. Ready to wrap it up?

But, before we start, don't forget that the sales will stick around until January 29th. So, you have a few more days to get your favorites ordered.

We started out the week featuring the Valentine Cupcake set. This set pairs with the Cupcake Die set and previously released cupcake clear sets. Here's Donna's pretty Valentine. You can get this set, along with the Valentine and Spring/Easter Banner sets, with the Clear Set sales special.


From there we moved onto Valentine's Day, which is right around the corner. Have you made your card for your true love, like Katie? She's used the Large Swirl Heart and sentiment from the Valentine Banner set.

Heidi's gone with a vintage look for her Valentine. This book pop-up card features Love Birds and the There is Only One Happiness sentiment. Heidi's also made a belly band for her card, using the banner from Happy Valentine's Day.


Don't forget to check out the Valentine's sales special. Six gorgeous Valentine's stamps, including this one featured on Sharon's elegant creation, called Happy Valentine's Day.


February will swiftly turn into March, with St. Patty's Day. Michelle's card features the Pot of Gold with Flowers, Shamrock Swag and Celtic Border stamps (all available in the St. Patty's sale special), as well as the There is Only One Happiness sentiment.

Kelly leads us into the Easter sales special with Tall Cross and 1 Corinthians 5:17. Both of these are included in the Easter bundle. 


The Double Lillies stamp, featured here in Sharon's card is also included in that Easter bundle. 


But, there's plenty of Easter cuteness available too, both in the red rubber options and with the Spring/Easter Banner set, used in Heather's creation below.

And that wraps up our week! 22 fantastic red rubber stamps, 3 fantastic clear sets, 5 fantastic sales specials....wait, did I post 5 specials?? Oh yes, don't forget the SHIPPING special. Just use the code FREESHIP in the coupon box upon check out to receive free shipping on your domestic US order.

Here's a rundown of those new release specials one more time.

January New Release - Day 5, Part 1

It's the end of the week, Prickley Pear fans and what a fantastic Friday it is! Today you can get FREE SHIPPING on your Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps order (domestic US only). 

Let's see if we can inspire you again today with our new release products. Today's post focuses on mixing old product with new, alternative projects and other cool things we might have forgotten earlier this week. Ready? 

Let's start with Love Birds. We showed you Love Birds earlier this week on our Valentine's post. But, Sharon used the stamp to create this adorable bag topper.


Heather chose to leave the sentiment out on her creation. Wedding card? Anniversary? The options are endless with this pretty stamp.

The Valentines Banner set has a number of great love themed sentiments. But did you see this Save the Date sentiment? Sharon has made an elegant note card, perfect for a formal event.


And Heidi has also paired it with the Valentine Banner set for another elegant invite option. Medium Swirl Heart is used here as well.

 And, those swirl heart come in three different sizes. Here Donna has made a mini note card with Large Swirl Heart.


Don't put that Shamrocks stamp away after St. Patty's Day. Heather has easily transformed it into a bouquet of wildflowers for a classic thank you option. 


Heidi's done much the same with the Valentine Banner set, pairing it with a beautiful floral for a ready made all purpose card.

Tea time anyone? Look at Michelle's adorable card using the previously released Tea Time The background has been stamped with the newly available Swirl Hearts and the flourish from the Valentine Banner set.

Speaking of tea time, bring all the new release items together for a fun tea party set. This creation by Heather features the both the Valentine Banner set and the Valentine Cupcakes set. More detail and pictures can be found on Heather's blog.


We've got our final post of the week this afternoon. Don't foret to check out all the new release specials, including FREE SHIPPING on domestic US orders (use code FREESHIP).

January New Release - Day 3, Part 2

Welcome Prickley Pear fans! 

Has snow arrived to your part of the world? It has arrived here and I can't wait until spring starts to arrive. Already the days are getting longer again and I know it won't be long. Time to stock up on spring stamps and welcome the season with open arms!

The focus of today's post is on Spring. Tomorrow, we'll celebrate the Easter options of this New Release, but today's focus is on that coming season of renewal and growth. Ready? 

Sharon kicks us off with Bunny Cart and the Happy Spring sentiment from Spring/Easter Banner set Check out her background with Left Bunny and Right Bunny!


Donna is also preparing for spring. Check out the coloring on Bunny Cart!

I think Heidi must be hoping her creations convince spring to come early - like next week? Here's the adorable Bunny Cart again.

And this creation from Heidi pairs the Easter/Spring Banner set paired with the previously released Lamb with Flowers.

The Easter/Spring Banner set has a number of great sentiments. Here, Heidi's rearranged them slightly for a new greeting. This card paired with Edith (previously released).

And finally, Heidi's used the older Bonnie the duck for this adorable pop-up card paired with the Spring/Easter Banner set. 

Check out the inside! The Spring/Easter Banner set is featured prominently here.
