Hi Everyone!!
Happy St. Patrick's day!
May your day be filled with lots of luck!
Today I am sharing a card featuring
Pink and Main stamps and dies.
 For my card, I used the Smile die,
the Nested Hexagon die (smallest one)
and the Stitched Round Rectangle die (largest one.)
I kept the card with a green monochromatic theme to go with St. Patrick's day but not the holiday specifically.


I used the Nested Hexagon die, the smallest one, and die cut several from green patterned paper. Next, I added them to a white cardstock panel then die cut the panel with the Stitched Rounded Rectangle die. Then I die cut the Smile die from white cardstock and added some Mowed Lawn distress ink to the bottom half of the sentiment. Then I added some shimmer to the die cut. I placed the die cut on the panel with the hexagons and added this  to a top folding A2 card base. I finished the card with some clear sequins.



Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hi Everyone!
Today I am sharing a card with a sneak peek of a stamp set being released later on this month for Gerda Steiner Designs. I was honored to be asked again to be a guest designer for them.
This set is called Party Animals 4x6 Clear Stamp Set by Gerda Steiner Designs and is being released on March 22nd along with more stamps and dies. Make sure to check it out!!


Aren't these critters just so fun??

I started the card by stamping the cake, using some post it notes and masking the cake then stamping the lion to the left and the crocodile to the right to look like he is holding the cake. Next I stamped the gift to the left hand side of the card, making sure I left room for the rhino and masked the gift. Then I stamped the rhino and the ostrich. Before I colored the images, I masked them all to create the background. For the background, I made a 'ground' for the critters by masking a line with post-it tape. I added some Mustard Seed distress ink to the horizon and blended that into
Broken China distress ink for the blue sky.

For the ground portion,
I just moved the tape to the sky portion
and added some Gathered Twigs distress ink.
Then I was able to color the images with copic markers, I added some white and black gel pen accents. To the candle on the cake and the ribbon on the gifts, I added some shimmer.
Finally, I stamped and then heat embossed the sentiments from the stamp set.


On the inside of the card, I stamped the gorilla
and added a gift on top of his head for fun.
For this, I stamped the gift first,
masked the gift, then stamped the gorilla.
Finally, I copic colored these images.

Hi Everyone! 
Today I am sharing a project for Pink and Main stamps.


I started the card with a little masking before I colored the images. I stamped the cute Skunk with the flower in black ink and then made a mask of the skunk, placed it over the skunk then stamped the log. Next, I stamped the snail, ladybug, butterfly and sentiment around the skunk and colored all the images with copic markers and added some gel pen accents and grass. I die cut the panel with a Stitched Oval die. I also stamped, colored and die cut a few mushrooms and flowers for the card. 

Next, I made a white A2 card base and added some layers from the Shades of Spring, Spring Color pop 6x6 paper pads and black card stock. I die cut the blue patterned paper with the largest scallop in the Scallop Border die set. I added some white rick rack to the top of the black and white chevron pattern and then finished it off with some Totally White Trendy Twine and a bow.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a wonderful day and Don't forget to color today!!

Hi Everyone! 
Today starts a new Challenge at the 
This month's challenge for March 2017 is Spring.

For my project, I made a card using the Spring Train stamp set and the *NEW* Coordinating dies for the set just released in February 2017.



I started the card out by stamping, coloring and die cutting the cute images from the Spring Train stamp set with copic markers and I combined some traditional coloring with dot coloring to add some texture to the bunny and bear. Next, I used the Stitched Rounded Rectangles die and die cut some colorful plaid patterned paper from the Spring Fling 6x6 paper for the background, I also die cut a Stitched circle and scalloped circle using the polka dot yellow paper from the same paper for a sun. I added a happy face to the sun using the Sweet Faces Set 2 stamp set and of course, some cheeks! Next, I used some green patterned paper from the Shades of Spring 6x6 paper to die cut a hill for the cute train to ride on with the Scallop Waves Die. Then, I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from the set in white. I added this panel to a white A2 card base then finished with a bee and butterfly. I also added some Totally White Trendy Twine to connect each car. Finally, I added some coordinating enamel hearts.

Hi Everyone! 
Today I am sharing a shaker card featuring 
Pink and Main stamps and dies.
For the shaker card, I thought it would be fun to use the *newly released* Smile die and Smile stamp set along with the fun faces from the Mini Faces Set 2 and Set 3.


I started with a top folding white A2 card base and then cut another card front about a 1/8" smaller then I used the Stitched Rounded Squares die to cut a window for the shaker. Next, I die cut the Smile from the Smile die from some pearl white cardstock, I also stamped the coordinating sentiment from the Smile stamp set below the window in black ink. Then I added the clear acetate to the window and adhered the Smile die cut on top of it. I used the Mini Faces Set 2 and Set 3 and stamped several of them on different colored cardstock and then punched them out with a circle punch. I also added some pink chalk to the cheeks and some white gel pen accents to the eyes. All the faces are just so fun and happy! Perfect for this shaker card and sentiment. Finally I added the smiley faces to the shaker window and added some coordinating patterned paper to the background.

Hi Everyone! 
Today is my day to share a card for Pink and Main stamps.

For my card, I used the *NEW* 6x6 Color Pop paper pad, Smile dies, Smile stamp set, and the Lacy Border dies.




I just love this new paper with the "pop" of color!! I started the card with a teal card base then layered the heart patterned paper on black and white cardstock. Next I die cut the 'Smile' in teal and the shadow in white pearl cardstock along with the Lacy Border die twice. Next, I stamped and heat embossed in white the "I Love Your" sentiment from the coordinating Smile stamp set and then layered that on teal and white and added it to the corner of the card. I finished the card with some ribbon with a double bow and some small pearls to the Lacy Border.

Hi Everyone!! 
Today I am a Guest Designer for Gerda Steiner Designs.
I am sharing a few cards using the All Cats stamp set.


The first card is a Valentine's/Love card. The XO sentiment from the set inspired me. The cute cat is stamped and colored with copic markers to look like a white cat with black spots. 
I stamped the background with the same color of the card stock with the XO sentiment. Then I die the panel with an Oval die and a stitched rounded rectangle die. The oval made a cute window for the cat, holding the sign, I paper pieced the sentiment window with some pink heart patterned paper. Next, I added the back ground of heart patterned paper to the window for the cat. I stamped the sentiment, 
"Just a little card to say" in black ink and then added some clear embossing powder. I finished the card with some heart and round enamel dots.


For the second card, I used a card sketch and the "Happy Purr-Thday" as inspiration. The cat is again stamped in black and copic colored to be an orange tabby cat. I cut the papers according to the sketch and added a dry embossed polka dotted background. The "Happy Purr-Thday!" sentiment is stamped and heat embossed in white, then I added some white gel pen faux stitching. I finished the card with some stitched edges, glossy accents to the eyes and nose and matching enamel dots.



I added an action wobble to this cat and 
it's just so fun for a birthday card!! 
This is the cat in action, he looks like he is ready to pounce!

These are all three of the cards together that I made as a Guest Designer using the All Cats stamp set.

Hi Everyone! 
Today starts a new challenge for the Pink and Main Challenge blog.
This month's challenge is Love.
Perfect for the month of Love. <3 font="">

For my card, I used the True Love stamp set, a Pink to Red Ombre ink pad from Hero Arts and a card sketch. Card sketches always give me inspiration.


I stamped the sentiment with the ombre ink pad and found some card stock to match, embossed it with two different embossing folders and layered it according to the card sketch. Then I added some shimmer with a clear Wink of Stella glitter pen to the sentiment, next I added some heart enamel accents and a glitter enamel accent.

Hi Everyone!! 
Today I am a Guest Designer for Gerda Steiner Designs.
I am sharing a card using the All Cats stamp set.
The cats in this stamp set are just too fun!! 
I loved coloring them with copic markers.
The cat I used in today's card reminded me of the beloved grumpy cat!


I colored this cat with the gray (N1-N5 family) copic markers, then fussy cut it out. Next, I used some patterned paper from Doodlebug design for the background layer. Then I used a grass border die to die cut some green grass for the cat to sit on. I added this to white card stock that is embossed with a cloud embossing folder then die cut with a 3x4 journal die. The cute birds are paper pieced with matching patterned papers and sitting on a twine rope, I added some knots to the corners. Finally, I added the fun "Stay Pawsitive" sentiment from the stamp set, in black ink, to a die cut banner then added some twine around the edge ending in a bow. For a finishing touch, I added some glossy accents to the eyes and beaks and a few white gel pen accents.

Thank you so much for stopping by! 

Have a wonderful day!
