Pink & Main 5th Birthday Celebration and Blog Hop!

Wednesday, March 20, 2019

Pink & Main is celebrating its 5th Birthday and YOU are invited to the party!!  Come join the blog hop for fun, inspiration and surprises!

Comment to win!  Leave a comment on each blog in the hop listed below.  There will be FIVE random winners chosen from the comments left on our blogs. Each winner will each win a $50 store credit!!

For my first card, I created a splattered background with distress oxide inks.  The balloons were created by using one of the balloon dies from the Party Balloons die set and cut from a background piece I made with a rainbow of distress oxide ink colors then tied twine to each.  Using the Celebrate dies, I cut the word from shiny gold cardstock and the outline from black cardstock.

For my next two cards, I first created a rainbow background with distress oxide inks.  I then used the Happy Birthday dies to cut out the center of each card.  Taking the cut out words, I placed them into the openings of the opposite card.  A great way to get two cards in one!

Be sure to join the hop and celebrate with us!

Flippin' Over Your Birthday

Saturday, March 16, 2019

We're flippin over the new Pink & Main March Release - coming March 20th!  There is so much to celebrate!!

My project today features the new Birthday Tag dies.  This little tag is packed with little surprises for the recipient.  The tag is super simple to put together. 

After cutting out the tag, fold on the pre-scored sections at the bottom of the tag.  This creates 'steps'.  On each 'step', place a die cut square with scallop square layer then use one of several dies included in this die set to cut images and words.  There are tabs at the top which are placed behind the tab and adhered to a base.  Now, when the tab at the top of the tag is pulled, each of the squares flip over revealing the next square.

I've also used several fun patterns from the new It's A Party paper pad!

These new products will be available on March 20th!


Divinity Designs March Color Combo

Welcome to Divinity Designs March Design Team Challenge!  Each month, the DT is challenged to create a project using a new color combo.  This month's color combo...

For my card, I started by cutting bright green cardstock using the Side Step Card Die, then layered the panels with papers from the Birthday Brights paper pad.  The lemons image and sentiment are from the Lemons Branch set.  I stamped the image on white cardstock and cut it out with one of the Rectangles Dies and layered it with yellow paper from the Birthday Brights paper pad using one of the Scalloped Rectangles die.  The sentiment is from the same set and I used one of the Circles dies and Scalloped Circles dies

The darling tea cup, saucer, heart, tea bags and spoons are all included in the Cups & Mugs Dies set -- so cute!


Divinity Designs Special Treats

Friday, March 15, 2019

Divinity Designs March Release is filled with special treats for you to create, give -- or keep for yourself! Today I create two special gifties with fun and yummy treats...

This Christmas treats gift was created with the new Test Tube Trio Dies.  I cut the basic die in blue cardstock then used the layers dies, bow die and label dies (included in the Test Tube Trio Dies ) to cut patterns from the Christmas Collection (2017) Paper Pad.  For the front, I used one of the new Scalloped Squares Dies to layer and cut another design from the paper pad using one of the Squares Dies.  The fun sentiments are from the Treat Tag Sentiments #3 stamp set.  I filled the tubes with crushed peppermint, mini jingle bells and Snow-caps candy!

Onto the next special treat project...

 For this project, I used the Test Tube Treat Dies which I first cut yellow cardstock for the actual 'box' and, using the layering dies included, cut patterns from the Birthday Bash Paper Pad.  The sweet cupcake was created using Beverage Cup Dies and I added the candle from the Birthday Candle Dies; for a background, I cut blue paper from the Birthday Brights paper pad using one of the Scalloped Circles Dies.  The sentiment, from Treat Tag Sentiments #2, was stamped on orange paper from the Birthday Brights paper pad and cut using one of the banner dies from the Test Tube Treat Dies.

This cute treat gifty would go perfect with a cupcake ready to have sprinkles put on top.  Now I'm hungry for a cupcake!
