Hearts Galore!

Welcome back everyone! I had a little fun creating some backgrounds with the new Heart Stencil from Pink & Main.
It is really hard to capture the sparkle and beauty of these cards on camera but I did my best.  I’m always in need of thank you cards so that is what I created today.
This first card, I used some Tim Holtz Distress watercolor paper and applied the stencil using some Range Texture Paste. This dries white but leaves a great texture of hearts. I wanted to take it a step further, and spritz with Sparkle spray but when I checked it the next morning, it left some blotches on my paper. Still looks good but wasn’t the look I was originally going for.  I used the Thank you stamp and die for my sentiment to the card. The Thanks die is cut from the Magenta Glitter Cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. I love these glitter papers! 
This was another experiment for me. I used the Decofoil Transfer Gel with the heart stencil on some Neenah White cardstock. Then once that was dry, I ran it through my Laminator with some red foil. It did leave some marks on the heart but that may have been some streaking from when I applied the transfer gel.
I think this one is my favorite. I applied the heart stencil with some Bo Bunny Coral glitter paste. I love all the sparkle! I used the Thank you stamp and die set. The sentiment is stamped with WoW embossing ink and heat set with WOW white embossing powder.
I hope you enjoyed all the different ways you can use the heart stencil – or any of the stencils! It’s a lot of fun and very addicting once you get going as you can see!

Oh What Fun!

Welcome everyone! Today I’m participating in the 12 Days of Christmas with Whimsy Stamps sharing a fun slider card using their stamps and dies. Slider cards are super fun and this Santa was perfect for it! I also have a video for this process down below.
I start out by stamping my images onto Neenah White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then coloring with my copic markers and cutting out with the coordinating dies. Next, I created my sky by using Chipped Sapphire and Faded Denim distress inks and spritzing with water.
Then, I created my slider piece. I die cut a hillside and the slot for the slider IN the hillside piece. Before I add dimension to the card, I stamp my sentiment to the bottom of the hillside.
I will then add foam tape around the edges of the hillside but being sure to leave room for my penny to move freely, which is what I will be using as the slider. I attach a small piece of foam tape to the middle of the penny, place that in my slider slot and attach Santa on the front side . It’s also a good idea to run an antistatic powder tool around the slider slot and foam square so it slides easier.
I can then attach the tree to the back of the hillside piece and North Pole sign to the front. My distress piece of cardstock will attach to a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card base. I attach a small white strip to the bottom so when my slider piece attaches, it will look like snow behind it. Finally, I attached the hillside with my sliding Santa.
I love how this really makes it look like Santa is dashing through the snow!

Welcome back everyone! I hope you had a chance to check out the new release from Pink & Main. 
Today’s card is featuring the ever so cute Hedgehugs set! I have stamped my image onto Neenah white cardstock 80lb with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then colored with my copic markers and cut out with the coordinating dies. I love these dies! They run so smooth through my Big Shot machine AND there is no cutting apart. The metal dies for each set are already separated.

 I also used the new heart die to cut a stitched heart from white cardstock. I attached the heart to the middle of a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel I cut from a piece of plaid paper from the My Heart Paper pack. This panel was then attached to a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ white cardbase. I attached my super cute hedgehog to the middle of the heart. The sentiment is also stamped from the set and I used the mini ink pad Fire Engine from Pink & Main.

Snowman Kids!

As Christmas gets closer, my posts get fewer …. lots of things going on between finishing Christmas shopping to preparing class treats and so much in between! 
I had made this card actually last month and forgot to share. It was just too cute to keep to myself. I used the adorable Snowman Kids set from the November release and the sentiment set Christmas Wishes. The beautiful plaid paper is from the Jolly paper pad from Pink & Main.
This little snowman just makes me smile!

Genie Boy – Pink & Main

Welcome everyone! Today I’m sharing a card using the new release from Pink & Main. I have my supplies and the entire new release listed below. It’s amazing!!
I decided to make a scene for my card and I was going for a sunset in the desert. I created a skyline by using some post tape. Then, I ink blended Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick and Seedless Preserve Distress Ink for the sunset and Brushed Corduroy distress ink for the sand. I spritzed with water and dabbed up with a paper towel.
My images are colored on Neenah white cardstock with copic markers and then cut out with the coordinating die. I could have just stamped these are the card and masked them off to create a one layer cut but I was really excited to use the dies.
I lined up where everything would be and before attaching stamped my sentiment which is also from the Genie Boy stamp set, onto my card using the Misti stamping tool and Versafine ink. 
Be sure to check out the new release!
