Hi Everyone!
Today I wanted to share a bright and cheerful card I made using the big Hello Friend sentiment, from the Hello Friend Wishes stamp set by Mama Elephant.


I just love the scripty font in this set and it just pops against the orange to yellow background.
First, I die cut a panel out of some canson xl watercolor paper from the MFT STAX Stitched Rectangle Scalloped edge frame die, the largest one, then used my Misti and stamped the sentiment in versamark ink and heat set it in white embossing powder. Then I added some distress inks, blending from the lightest to the darkest, Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin and Abandoned Coral, added some water droplets and shimmer spray. I added the scalloped frame but in white card stock and adhered it to a white card base. I finished it off with some yellow and sparkling clear pretty pink posh sequins.




I love the pretty look of this card, so bright and cheerful!
I stamped the coordinating sentiment from the set, "I just wanted to say 'Hello' to help brighten up your day!" to the inside of the card. I hope to make many more cards like this one.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!




Hi Everyone!!
Today I am back sharing another Stampin Bella Squidgies card. This time using the Chatty Squidgie.

I know I can always use friend cards, just to let someone know I miss them, I'm thinking of them, I appreciate them or just to brighten their day. Who doesn't love getting mail that isn't a bill or ad, right?


I colored several images during the last Daily Marker 30 Day color challenge. This is one of them. I have a stack I'm working through, what can I say, I love to color and practice but I'm slow at sharing my images. Better late than never!!
For this card, I used a pre-made card base from Pebbles card basics in teal polka dots. I stamped the image ink Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored with copic markers. Then I added some Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen then some white gel pen accents. I die cut the image with a stitched rectangle die and popped it up on the card with some foam tape after I added the sentiment in black ink. Then I finished the card with some Iridescent sequins from Darice.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a wonderful day!






Hi Everyone!
I hope your Tuesday is going great!
Today I am sharing a card I recently made using some of the Squidgies stamps from Stampin Bella.

For my card, I used the Huggy Squidgies stamp set. I stamped the image with Memento tuxedo black ink on some Neenah solar white card stock then colored it with copic markers. I added some white gel pen accents and flowers to the girl with the teal dress. Then I die cut the image using the Stitched Circle dies (Pink and Main stamps), then added the sentiment from Sunday Sentiments (Mama Elephant) to follow to the curve of the circle in black ink.
I just ended the long line of the sentiment with some masking and a heart from the sentiment. 

I used a pre-made card base from Pebbles card basics in purple polka dots to match the colors of the dress. Then I added a layer of white card stock that is die cut with the Stitched Border 1 dies (Pretty Pink Posh) behind some of the new Perfectly Plaid Rainbow petite paper (Lawn Fawn).
To finish the card, I popped the circle up with some foam tape then added some enamel dots in iridescent sparkle (Recollections).
I made this card with my crafty BFF, Stacey in mind. If you haven't already, check out her blog she has some wonderful projects to inspired you!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

 These big, bold sentiments are just amazing and so fun to work with. I enjoy making them the center of the card. For my card today, I used the new Wishes stamp set. I stamped the sentiment in black ink on watercolor card stock, stamped again in versamark ink, then shifted the sentiment slightly and stamped again with versamark ink and set it with clear embossing powder. Then I stamped the "On Your Special Day" sentiment also from the set in with versamark and heat embossed it with white powder. Then I added distress ink blended over it in teal to green. Next, I splattered it with shimmer mist to add some sparkle, the I die the panel with the Stitched Rounded Rectangles Die, I also die cut a frame with the same size and the next size up from the Rectangle dies. I inlaid the panel in the frame and added this to the white A2 card base. I finished the card with some star sequins in silver, clear and teal. Then I added some silver crystal Nuvo drops to accent.

I started with a 4.25 x 4.25 white square card base. Then I used the new Take Flight and Take Flight 2 6x6 paper pads, I cut the paper for the background, the dots are on the opposite side of the chevron. This patterned paper is two-sided. Then I die cut the border strip using the new Directional Border dies and some tan colored patterned paper also from the new release. Next, I used the Stitched Circle Dies and the Scalloped Circle Dies and cut a circle and a frame for the cute Koala and sentiment.

The Koala is from the new Koalaty Friends stamp set and Coordinating Dies. I colored the cute Koala with copic markers and then die cut it with the coordinating die. I added it to the framed scallop circle with some foam adhesive. Then I heat embossed the "G'day Mate!" sentiment from the set on gray cardstock in white and added it to the frame with a mini clothespin.

For my card, I am using some of the new products coming out on Monday, April 10th!!

I used the new My Tribe stamp set and stamped the girl, I paper pieced her outfit and flag from another new product coming out, Be Brave 6x6 paper pad. The rest of her is colored with copic markers and I added some gel pen accents. Next, I die cut her with the Stitched Circle Die then added some Chipped Sapphire distress ink to the edges. The sentiment is one of a couple in the set, I stamped and heat embossed it in white on the navy cardstock. The patterned papers on the card are all from the Be Brave 6x6 paper pad and matted with navy cardstock on a white A2 card base.


For the inside of the card, I stamped some arrows from the My Tribe stamp set in Chipped Sapphire distress ink. Make sure to check out the whole release on Monday at the Pink and Main website.

For my interactive card, I wanted to try out a slider card. I started by stenciling some clouds on a white card stock panel die cut from the Stitched Rounded Rectangles die, I also made a hilly ground using the 6x6 Shades of Spring paper and the Scallop Waves die. The bunny in the wheel barrow is from the Seeds of Kindness stamp set, that is copic colored and paper pieced from the same paper stack then die cut with the coordinating Seeds of Kindness dies. Next, I stamped and colored the cute skunk from the Scentsational stamp set, along with several flowers and lady bugs to accent the card front and also, used the coordinating dies. To finish the card off, I die cut the Smile sentiment from the Smile Die and added some yellow ink to the bottom half and some shimmer over all of it. Then I added the sentiment from the Seeds of Kindness stamp set and heat embossed it in white. This panel was added to a kraft card base.


The slider portion is small but fun.
The bunny slides in the wheel barrow along the hill.

using Pink and Main Stamps and dies.
(This blog post contains affiliate links. Compensated affiliate links used when possible at no extra cost to you. I just receive a small portion of the sales through your purchase. So Thank You!!)

For the tags, I used the cute bunny from the Seeds of Kindness stamp set with the coordinating die that I copic colored and added some white gel pen accents, I added the bow from the set to make one a girl, so cute! I die cut the tags from the two coordinating 6x6 paper pads, Shades of Spring and Spring Fling. The grass/hill border on the tag is from the Scallop Waves die. The "Happy Easter" sentiment is stamped and heat embossed with white and is from the Easter Peeps stamp set. Next, I wanted to personalize the tags for our kids, so I used the Banner Alpha stamp set, the individual letter made this so easy!! Of course, I had to add (Heart) Easter Bunny!

Hi Everyone!
Today I am back sharing another project as a guest designer for Gerda Steiner Designs.
I am using the newly released (as of yesterday) Party Animals 4x6 clear stamp set for a second card.
***Click here ***

For the card, I wanted the animals to look like they were peeking out. So I stamped, colored and fussy cut the animals from the set then paper pieced the gift and cake,
also from the set.
Next, I die cut three circles from a rainbow chevron patterned paper then added the "Hooray!" sentiment and heat set in clear embossing powder. Then I added the animals to the circles. I layered this onto some burlap, then added some orange patterned paper behind the burlap. I added these layers to a top folding A2 Kraft card base.



Aren't these critters just so fun?!

 To the inside of the card, I added a white card stock die cut panel with the rest of the sentiment. Next, I added the Lion from the set and the cake that I colored and paper pieced the frosting next to the Lion.


Thanks for stopping by!

Also, a big thank you to Gerda Steiner Designs, LLC for giving me the opportunity to be a guest designer again.

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.
