Find Beauty

Well it's that time again. Here is another card created for Pink and Main using two of their newest stamps sets. They can be found here.

This was created for our monthly challenge blog. This month was a color challenge which was a nice change. I can't believe I pulled out my Kaleidoscope ink pads. Do you remember those rainbow pads from back in the day? Do they even still make them??? I bought these when I was an Angel Company Consultant forever ago. Any who, they really are just as juicy and awesome as they were 10 years ago.

I also used Prismacolor pencils and a smooth card stock, and a little clear Wink of Stella for the shimmer seen on the sentiment.

You gotta enter in the challenge, its really so easy and so rewarding. They give out some pretty sweet prizes. So check it out here.

It's Pasture Birthday

If you have ever been late for someones birthday, then you know how lousy you feel. Well they will at least smile receiving a card like this. They might even temporarily forgive you, no promises. This is a card I made for this weeks Design Team project. My Pink and Main post can be found here.

The technique most used on this card is masking. No I did not pretend to be batman while I was making it. Masking is a a basic stamping technique which makes it look like one image is behind another, creating an illusion of depth. There is an awesome tutorial I found here.

Enjoy the rainbow

Check out this adorable frog from the new Pink and Main release Rain Frogs! So much fun to color. I had a pickle of a time with the photos for this one. It further concretes that I need to take a class, or two, about photography. I used a clear glaze for the raindrops and puddle, and a clear acetate "window" on the bottom. Not sure any of that shows up real well in these pics. I only took 200 pictures! Ok, well more like 30, but so frustrating. Anyhow, I used my trusty Copic markers and accented with my white gel pen. I really feel like someone should sing when I say...white gel pen! I finally found an amazing one after years of searching! I will have a separate post on that soon.

In the meantime, enjoy my froggy friend. :)

Happy Easter!

Seems crazy to be talking about Easter already, but I am thrilled to be talking SPRING! Today has been wet and cold. Sure does make me wish for Spring. I am sharing my card created for Pink and Main.

I decided I wanted to do a shaped card this week. I used my silhouette machine (of course!) and searched "egg" in the silhouette studio. I cut two eggs out of white cardstock and one out of patterned. In order to make it a card I scored the back egg on the side and adhered it to the front (like a hinge). I used my copic markers for the coloring. 

These and other awesome stamp sets can be found HERE.

I Love Your Face Card

Hello all!

My share this week is a card I made using the fabulous stamps from Pink and Main. Who doesn't love emoji's? They are everywhere I turn. I looked at the moody stamp set and immediately thought they would be cool as emoji's. This set is from Pink and Mains planner line of stamps. I love to take them and create cards. I also used the Instagram inspired set Oh Snap. I love the sayings, etc. in this set.

I stamped the face and alternated the facial expressions. I then took the frame from the Oh Snap set and cut out the middle and popped it up with foam tape for added dimension. I also used Glossy Accents from Ranger for the glasses. The hearts were stamped with pigment ink. Silly me forgot to heat it with a heat tool before smearing it with my hand while coloring the faces. Well that's what I love about crafting. No accidents...just room for embellishment. So it turned into a happy accident, because I love how the hearts turned out. 

Pink and Main has wonderful challenges every month to win prizes. This months theme is Love and you can find the details here.

Happy Crafting!! :) Pam Pease, Pink and Main DT

Always and Forever

I want Spring! I usually love winter...cute hats and scarves, but I am soooooo OVER all this snow. It was very pretty for the first 24hrs now its a dirty nasty mess. Fingers crossed that the week my daughter was off school won't come back to bite us at the end of the year!

On to more pleasant things.....I am sharing a cute Valentine card I made using this awesome set here and the sentiments are here. This one is for my wonderful hubby. Which hopefully he hasn't seen laying around my living room ;). I have a bum hand so I kept it simple with my copics and added some highlights with a white pencil...which I am finding is awesome for highlights!! I used my Prismacolors,but I am sure any good quality colored pencil would do.

Crafty hugs!
