Pink & Main | Sending a Sunny Hello

I'm sending you a summery sunny hello with Pink & Main goodies today! 






I'm going to start with those cute images! They're from the Sunny Smiles Stamp Set and they're just so adorable! I stamped the pup in the pool and the bear with the beach ball and colored them with Copic Markers then die cut them with the coordinating Sunny Smiles Die Set






I picked out two patterns from the Vitamin Sea Patterned Paper Pack that would coordinate well with my colored images. I die cut the polka dot patterned paper with the largest die from the Stitched Rectangles 1 Die Set so that it would cover an A2 card. I used the second largest die from the Concave Rectangles Die Set and cut the striped patterned paper. I added foam behind the striped piece and "hung" it off the top of the card and trimmed away the excess and added my critters on top. 






I die cut my sentiment from the Sunny Hello Die Set from white cardstock and vellum and adhered the die cut sentiment under my critters, That finishes my card! Thanks for joining me!

Sassy & Crafty | Two Dinorawr Stenciled Cards

I have a son who just LOVES dinosaurs! The Dinorawr Stamp Set from Sassy & Crafty reminds me of him and I was excited to get inky and make a couple of dino themed cards! 









I used two different stencils and one stamp set to make two completely different cards! One has a more childlike feel and the other is more grown up. 






I used Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint, Antique Linen, and Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide Inks over the Jurassic Stencil and added a simple sentiment from the Dinorawr Stamp Set for my first card. Easy and simple! 






I went a little brighter and more whimsical for my second card and blended Kitsch Flamingo, Twisted Citron, and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Inks over the Dino Tracks Stencil. I colored a couple of images from the Dinorawr Stamp Set and added them on top of the background. 






Thanks so much for joining me! See you again soon!

InkOn3 | Fruity Atelier Ink Blended Cards

My current obsession? Layering stencils! I used a few colors of InkOn3 Atelier Ink Pads and blended up some fruity backgrounds! 









I love the look of layering stencils! Such an easy way to create customized patterned paper! And I used Atelier Inks for effortless blending! 





My first card uses the Watermelon Slices Stencil Set. I blended Sweet Petunia Pink and Goddess Green Atelier Inks and used Blackout Hybrid Detail ink for the seeds. Blending with the Blackout Hybrid Detail Ink always gives such crisp black details! 






Lemons are my favorite thing about summer! They're so bright and happy! I used the Lemon Squeeze Stencil Set with Bee Sting Yellow and Goddess Green Atelier Inks and again used Blackout Hybrid Detail Ink for the detail layer. 






This last card reminds me of fruit salad! I used the Mixed Fruit Stencil Set and blended Sweet Petunia Pink, Bee Sting Yellow, and Goddess Green Atelier Inks and used Blackout Hybrid Detail Ink for the final layer. 






I finished off all three of the cards by cutting down the panels with a Stitched Rectangle Die and adding the Oh Happy Day Word Die cut from Gold Holographic Cardstock. This set of cards makes me so happy and I hope it brightens your day as well!

ThermOWeb and Heffy Doodle Collaboration

Are you ready for a ThermOWeb and Heffy Doodle collaboration?! All the cuteness is coming your way! I made a couple of foiled cards with the most adorable images! 









Heffy Doodle has the cutest images! I couldn't pick just one stamp and stencil to work with, so I made two cards! Add a bit of foiling and these cards really shine! 






Both of these cards were easy to make and came together quickly! Just a bit of stenciling, coloring, and die cutting! 






I sprayed the back of the Lots of Happy Stencil with Pixie Spray and temporarily adhered it to a piece of white cardstock. I used a Stencil Pal and spread an even layer of Deco Foil Transfer Gel Blanco over the stencil and set the piece aside to dry for a couple of hours. You'll know the panel is dry when the back of the cardstock no longer feels cool to the touch. Once it was completely dry I cut a piece of Glimmering Gold Gina K Designs Fancy Foil slightly larger than the stenciled panel and placed it pretty side up onto the panel. I used a piece of Deco Foil Parchment Paper and ran it through my laminator. I LOVE the results! Such a happy background! Haha! 






I stamped a few images from the Hello Squeakheart Stamp Set and colored them with Copic Markers than used the coordinating Hello Squeakheart Die Set to cut them out. There are so many adorable sentiments in the Hello Squeakheart Stamp Set, but I wanted to make this birthday card a bit brighter and happier, so I die cut the Yay Heffy Cuts Die from Poppin' Pink Neon Flock Transfer Sheets. I used the same die to cut the word four more times from white cardstock and glued them all together using an iCraft Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive Pen






I added the images to the front of the foiled panel with iCraft 3D Foam Squares and the sentiment with an iCraft Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive Pen and that finishes card number one! 






My second card is made much like my first, but I added some extra ink blending to fill in the background. I sprayed the back of the Messy Desk Stencil with Pixie Spray and used Purple Tape to mask off the areas of the stencil I didn't want to add to the card. I used a Stencil Pal to spread Deco Foil Transfer Gel Blanco over the stencil and allowed it to dry. Once it was dry I trimmed down a piece of Rainbow Shattered Glass Deco Foil and placed it pretty side up over the stenciled portion and ran it through my laminator with a piece of Deco Foil Parchment Paper as a carrier. 






I thought the background was a little empty, so I added the Confetti Hearts Stencil over the panel and held it in place with Purple Tape. I blended a light teal ink and then rotated the stencil and blended light pink ink so I had two colors of hearts in the background. I stamped and colored some sweet images from the Treat Yo' Self Stamp Set and then die cut them with the coordinating Treat Yo' Self Die Set.






I used the Hello Heffy Cuts Die to cut a piece of Sunshine Yellow Deco Foil Flock and stacked it on top of four white cardstock die cuts. I added everything to my stenciled background with iCraft 3D Foam Squares and an iCraft Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive Pen






I hope you love these bright and happy cards as much as I do! I loved mixing up ThermOWeb and Heffy Doodle products for this collaboration! See you soon! 

Miss Ink Stamps | Blossoming Brushes Sneak Peek

There's a new release from Miss Ink Stamps hitting the store tomorrow and I am sneaking my favorite stamp set from the release - Blossoming Brushes! 









I stamped the large brush, paint drips, and some flowers and leaves from the Blossoming Brushes Stamp Set and colored them with Copic Markers and cut them out with scissors. 






I swiped Salvaged Patina and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks onto a slimline card front to mimic a swipe of paint and added flicks of gold watercolor for texture. I added my Blossoming Brushes stamped and colored images on top. 






I added my panel onto a teal slimline card base and placed a bunch of teal colored pearls around the card. Thanks for joining me! The new release from Miss Ink Stamps hits the shop tomorrow! Happy shopping!

Trinity Stamps | Sending Sunshine Striped Card

There's nothing better than creating your own background! I used the Slimline Stitched Stripes Die Set from Trinity Stamps for this easy background! 









I chose coral, yellow, blue, and holographic cardstock from my stash and die cut them with the Slimline Stitched Stripes Die Set. I adhered them diagonally onto a card base with liquid adhesive. 






I stamped the image from the Sending Sunshine Stamp Set and colored it with Copic Markers and cut it out with the coordinating Sending Sunshine Die Set. I popped the image up onto my striped background with foam tape. 






I finished off the card with a scattering of Bubble Bath Bauble Embellishments. Thanks for joining me!

Simon Hurley create. | Honeycomb Background with Stamping Foam

I love how easy it is to create custom backgrounds with Simon Hurley create. Stamping Foam! This honeycomb pattern is from a silicone pot holder I found from my kitchen! 









I heated my Stamping Foam with my heat gun for about 15 seconds and then pressed it into a silicone hot pad with a honeycomb pattern. I LOVED the pattern! I inked up the design with Guppy, Slippery When Wet, and Over the Moon Dye Inks and spritzed it with water and stamped the image onto a piece of Stark White Cardstock






I stamped some individual flowers and leaves from the Fresh Cut Flowers Slimline Peel-Apart Background Stamp as well as the little bee from the Flower Picking Friends Stamp Set and colored them with Copic Markers. I layered up my stamped background panel and added black spatters and adhered my florals with foam tape. 






I stamped a sentiment from the Lovely Lantanas Stamp Set directly on the background to finish off the card. Thanks so much for joining me!
