Thursday March 30, 2023, Rainbow Dreams CLR261 Stamps

Hi Friends! Tia from here with another card design from the newly released Rainbow Dreams stamp set. Yesterday I shared a rainbow card made with the big Rainbow stamp. Today I wanted to share lots of little rainbows with EVERYONE! 


I just love each and everyone of the sentiments in this set so much! You're gonna see more card ideas from me on this one-they just keep falling from my head, like this one did! 

When I saw the sentiment 'dreams don't have zip codes', all I could think of was the little rainbow falling down delivering dreams to people! 

I started with a 5x7 sized card and adhered a blue-mottled piece of design paper onto it.  I die cut my building with another piece of design paper that reminded me of brick. I didn't want the buildings to be the focus, so I tried to keep the colors muted, hence-gray doors/windows over bold black ones.

I glued the buildings down and then I stamped the mini-rainbows directly onto the design paper with Long Fog Memento Ink. I stamped randomly and changed directions so the rainbows would appear to be falling down onto the buildings.

Since the rainbow is so tiny, I decided to do solid colors falling down in the rainbow spectrum. Although I could have used all the rainbow colors if I'd colored sideways (non-traditional rainbow coloring), maybe next time!

I stamped the sentiment on scratch-cardstock so I could make the words falling down as well. They looked a little blah-so I outlined them with a black COPIC. 

I love this set because I know a lot of folks who are coming out of the winter doldrums and I plan on sending lots of love and kindness this Spring! 

Thanks for joining me on another Craftia card journey! Make sure you're sharing your cards with us on the group Facebook page-Prickley Pear Pals! I look forward to seeing them out there! 

Until next card-Go Get Crafty!

Thursday, March 30 - You Are My Sunshine - CLR268

Hello Prickley Pear Friends!!

Kendra here from Luv 2 Scrap n' Make Cards to share a card featuring the NEW You Are My Sunshine stamp set from the Celestial Collection:

I started by stamping the sun image on a piece of die cut square white cardstock and then used a blue Distress Oxide ink, to give the 'sky' feel.  I then stamped the sun on different piece of yellow pattern paper and fussy cut the pieces out.  I add them to the sun image and then used a black marker to add the accents, a nice touch I thought:
I love how it turned out!

I stamped the 'Wishing you a sunshiney day' first.  Then I masked and stamped the 'Sending warm' and 'hugs' from the 'Sending warm hugs your way' sentiment.  I again used my black marker to put a heart on each side of the word 'hugs' and an exclamation mark after 'hugs'!

So bright and cheery!!

Have a beautiful day!

Wednesday March 29, 2023, Rainbow Dreams CLR261 Stamps

Woot Woo Wednesday Friends! Tia here with you from Today I'm bringing you my love for Rainbows with another of the new stamp sets from the newly released Celestial Collection.
This gorgeous inspiring set is called: Rainbow Dreams.


Rainbow Dreams Clear Stamp Set CLR261

I'm crazy for anything Rainbow! I was so excited when I first saw this set and could not wait to get my hands on it!

I wanted to a card just filled with Rainbows and that's what I did! I took a slim-line card base and added a slim-line scalloped boarder mat in Royal Blue. 

With a 3x8 sized piece of Hammermill Color Copy paper I stamped both the small Rainbow and the large. I used my Misti platform stamper to line up the large Rainbow so only half appeared on each side. Then finished the look with the full Rainbow at the bottom.

I doubled up on my COPIC colors so that I used a lighter shade on top and a darker on the bottom.
I filled in the sky and added some clear Wink-of-Stella to the clouds.

Red: R39; R35
Orange: YR04; YR07
Yellow: Y04; Y15
Green: G29; G03
Blue: BG01; BG07
Indigo: B24; B18
Purple:V15; V17
Sky: BG000 & BG01

A fast-easy card with a big beautiful message! This is definitely one of those essential stamp sets you need in your stash. Think of it as the 'little black dress' of positive card making! Truly a great way to share some handmade-kindness. Now wildly chase your dreams and...

Go Get Crafty!

You Are My Sunshine

Vicki here with Prickley Pear. Today I've used another fabulous stamp set from the Celestial Collection!

Each year, I continue to say I'm going to use more patterned paper and this set inspired me. With the pastel colored background I was able to use the sun stamp and curved sentiment to create a fun card I can send to say hello to a friend. This sun is, in my opinion, very whimsical and perfect for so many ideas. We can't wait to see how you use it!

March 28, 2023, You Are My Sunshine Stamp Set CLR268

Be sure to check out the new Celestial Collection at Prickley Pear. You Are My Sunshine is just one stamp set in a beautiful collection.

You Are My Sunshine Stamp Set

The card base is cut from Gorgeous Grape card stock. It's cut to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4" on the long side. Just a tip I learned. Make sure you use your bone folder and burnish the fold well so it doesn't tear the fold.

I cut a piece of beautiful patterned paper to 5 3/8" x 4 1/8". Colors are perfect to be the background for my little sunflower friends. It's glued directly to the card base using wet glue.

I cut a piece of Gorgeous Grape card stock with one of the border dies and popped it up with a piece of foam tape across the bottom edge. The sunflowers are glued flat to the patterned paper behind the fun border and the sun is popped up with foam tape in the upper left corner.

I love all the sentiments that are part of this stamp set. I remember my mom singing 'You Are My Sunshine' to me when I was little. Brought a smile to my face.

The sentiment is popped up with foam tape for some additional dimension.

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine...

March 27, 2023, You Are My Sunshine CLR268 Stamps

Hey everybody! Is your weather warming up where you are?! Our temps here in southwestern Colorado are still pretty chilly! Leslie here, sharing a fun fold featuring the You Are My Sunshine stamp set that was just released as part of the Celestial Collection! This stamp set is so stinkin' cute, I can't stand it! I had a lot of fun creating this hidden message slider card with it! 

I cut the standard A2 size flat card base from white cardstock along with the slider mechanism. I then cut several panels from coordinating prints. I stamped the image from the You Are My Sunshine stamp set in black ink, colored it with alcohol markers and fussy cut it. I adhered it to a scalloped square die cut angled into a diamond shape. I fashioned a loop from green crafting cord for the pull tab.

I stamped the sentiment (hidden message) on the panel inside the slider and added a pink pearl strip to the bottom of the slider, which completed the project.
