Are you ready for summer?! Then you're gonna love Pink & Main's upcoming release on June 20th! Here's a sneak peek of a few NEW goodies!

My card and tags all feature the new Sunny Smiles stamp set with coordinating dies. How cute are these little guys who are ready to make a summer splash!

Butterfly Burst


Pink & Main's newest release includes such beautiful products to spark your creativity and Dream Big!

 For my card, I took the new Sun Ray Embossing Folder and blended distress oxide inks using the Ergonomic Blending Brush to create the background. These lovely butterfly images and sentiment are from the new Butterfly Sketches stamp set with coordinating dies. For a pretty little touch, I added pearls from the Unicorn Pearls set.

Saturday Coffee Cafe - Coffee & Crafts


Happy Saturday and welcome to the Saturday Coffee Cafe!  I'm so glad you stopped in to see what's brewing!

Coffee, Crafts & Gnomes...yep, these are a few of my most favorite things!! I was so excited to put this card together - it just makes me happy :)

For my card, I used a pattern from PhotoPlay Crafting With My Gnomies paper pad for the background.  The lime green backdrop for the images was cut using Pink & Main Concave Rectangles Dies. These adorable gnome images are from Unity Stamps Coffee, Gnomes & You set!  This fun sentiment is from SugarPea Designs Color of Life stamp set and the little scissor and glue dies are from Taylored Expressions.

Bold Butterfly Friend


Summer has officially begun!  I've so enjoyed hearing all the birds singing, trees/flowers in full bloom and catching a glimpse at a beautiful butterfly or two!

For my card, I stamped this wonderful image (and sentiment) from the Dearest Friend stamp set and colored it with Karin Brushmarkers.  To finish, I edged the card with brown ink and added a few Crystal Gems.  Super easy card, but so much fun to pull together!

Celebrate Summer


Summer has begun -- let's celebrate or 'shell'abrate as the case may be!  I would really like to be sitting on a beach right now, but alas, the closest I could get was creating this card!

For my slimline card, I first layered kraft cardstock onto the card base. The background was created by smooshing some distress oxide ink and edging it with a light blue oxide ink.  These wonderful shells from Papertrey Ink Summer Shell Dies were also smooshed with different colors of oxide ink and spritzed with water.  

The sentiment was gold embossed on vellum using the Perfect Pairs Essentials stamp set and coordinating dies.

For my card, I layered a pattern from the new BUTTERFLY KISSES PAPER PAD to the card base. Used the new (and super gorgeous) BUTTERFLY LAYERED 1, BUTTERFLY LAYERED 2 and BUTTERFLY LAYERED 3 DIES, I cut gold glitter paper from the METALLIC GLITTER PAPER PACK plus light coral and black cardstock. To finish, I stamped the sentiment from the BUTTERFLY SKETCHES stamp set and added a few gold embellishments from the SPARKLE GEMS collection.

The May Pink & Main Release is here...and WOW, it's AMAZING!

For my card, I first layered onto the card base a pattern from the new BUTTERFLY KISSES paper pad. I then cut aqua and purple cardstock using the new PLAID 1 and PLAID 2 Cover Dies that can be used on their own, but look fabulous together! These beautiful butterflies are from the new BUTTERFLY SKETCHES stamps and COORDINATING DIES. I added several ESSENTIAL PEARLS. To finish, I added the sentiment from the BUTTERFLY KISSES set.

Saturday Coffee Cafe - Sips & Stories


Happy Saturday!  Welcome to the Saturday Coffee Cafe - I'm so glad you stopped by today!  Grab your favorite caffeinated beverage and see what's brewin' today...

Other than enjoying a cup of java while crafting, it's wonderful to find the time to grab a fresh cup of coffee and a great book then find a comfy place to enjoy both!

Today, I created three cards using one stamp/die set and one paper pad...

Newton's Nook Sips & Stories is a delightful set!  It has several different sentiments, but I chose this one for all three of my cards.  On this one, I white embossed the sentiment on a shimmery coffee-brown cardstock cut with Pink & Main's Concave Dies.

Echo Park's Coffee & Friends paper is beautiful and one of my favorite paper packs to use!  All three of my cards today feature different patterns found in the 6x6 paper pack.

Hope you find the time for some Sips & Stories this weekend!

Glamorous Flora


"You Can Do Great Things" with all the fabulous crafty items in Pink & Main's recent release! I had so much fun creating this card and was excited how it turned out.

For my card, I cut copper shimmery cardstock with one of the Stitched Rectangle Set 1 dies and adhered it to the card base. Using the new Flora Stencil, I applied three different types of paste which created a distressed, rust look. I then applied lots of gold gems in the new Sparkle Gems pack -- I LOVE all the new sparkly gems. To finish, I added the sentiment from the Pretty Peony set.
