A Embroidered Hello

Hi crafty friends!
I hope you are having a fabulous Saturday!
Today I am back to share a card that I created using some fabulous stamps and dies that can be found in the Dies R Us Store

I love sending happy mail but needed to stock up on some Hello cards. When I saw the Lawn Fawn Embroidered Hello die, I knew it would be perfect and make a unique card.


I ran the die through my big kick and was left with a bunch of holes. These holes are where you do your stitching. I picked out some embroidery thread (DMC Floss) that would coordinate with my card, taped the thread to the back of the panel and started stitching. It was so super easy! I also stamped some flowers from the Lawn Fawn Fab Flowers stamp set and die cut them out with the coordinating Lawn Fawn Fab Flowers Dies and arranged them around my stitched hello.

Here is a look at my finished card:


I popped up my floral panel onto a light pink A2 pink cardstock with some foam tape. I finished off my card with some doodling.

Here is a quick peek (with links) to the products that I used on my card today that can be found in the Dies R Us store:

Here is a look at the card I created:


I recently purchased the Heart Shaker Pouches and Heart Shaker Window & Frame and knew they would be prefect as soon as I saw the sketch! I love the colors in the color challenge and my mind immediately went nautical. From there, my card was born lol! I cut out a little sailboat from my Cricut Explore and paired it up with a greeting from the Sailor Girl stamp set from MFT. I finished off my card with a few stitches with my white gel pen. 

I love the little shaker pouches! You can have a shaker card without a lot of the bulk that normally comes with making them :)

Hey crafty friends! We are so excited to be working along with the Xyron team this week to bring you some awesome crafty inspiration! Just check back on the Pink & Main blog each day this week to see our design team creations, and also be sure to check out Xyron’s talented team as well… You can see their daily posts from the Xyron Facebook page. Pink & Main will be giving away a $25 store credit to pinkandmain.com as well as a Xyron prize pack! We will be choosing from all the comments left on all of the team’s blog posts on their blogs throughout the week, so the more you comment, the more chance you have to win!

For my project, I knew I wanted to use those sweet little stamps from the new set from Pink & Main called, Sending Waves. So I stamped out a few of the images, colored them and then ran them through the Xyron 1.5" sticker maker.


Once I had the adhesive on my pieces, I started building my card. 


The sand was created with the Scallop Waves dies with a greeting from the Sending Waves stamp set. The waves are from the Beach Babe Patterned paper pack. I simply fussy cut and adhered it to my card and layered the sand over the top. I added the little girl from the Sending Waves stamp set and some clouds from the Sweet Dreams Baby die set. I tied a double bow and added the sun from the Sending Waves set to the center. The Xyron products made it so easy to assemble, I simply pulled them off of the sticker sheet and adhered! I finished off my card with a few sequins. 

I couldn't stop at just the card though. I adore making 3D projects and thought a little pail with some taffy in it would make the perfect companion piece to my card. I used my Cricut and cut out my pail from an SVG and ran the pieces through the 5inch Create A Sticker from Xyron.




I used more images from the Sending Waves stamp set. The waves, the bottom of the pail and the brim are all adhered with the adhesive from the 5 in Create A Sticker maker. The sun and little girl are popped up with a pop dot. I finished off my bucket with some white satin bows on the side.

Camp Create 2017: Bonfire Bonus Day

Hi everyone! 
I'm back again today with a quick post to share the card that I created for 
the bonus Bonfire Day of  MFT Camp Create


The bonfire was all about dry embossing.


My card was pretty simple to put together and really fast! I think the entire card took me less than ten minutes to do! Gotta love that! I made a 4.25" square card base and then cut out a square of white cardstock. I used the Stitched Square Scallop Frame dies and the Happy Greetings dies to create the embossed part of my card. I placed some polka dot vellum behind it and popped it all up onto my card base with some foam tape. I finished off my card with a fun little vinyl bow that I got from Hobby Lobby a long while ago lol!
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog today!

I hope you have a great crafty day!!

Here is a look at the card that I created based on the above sketch:



I stamped out my ice cream cone and colored it in with my Copic markers and then used the coordinating dies to cut it out. I die cut the ice cream from some patterned paper and placed it on my cone. I placed it on a die cut stitched circle and popped it up onto my card front with some foam tape. I stamped my greeting onto a strip of white cardstock, notched the ends and then popped that up with some more foam tape.

Camp Create 2017 Day 4: Sensational Sliders

Hi everyone! 
I'm back again today with a quick post to share the card that I created for 
Day 4 of the MFT Camp Create


Day 4 was all about making any type of slider card.



I thought the example card in the Day 4 video was pretty neat with the way it opened so I thought I would give it a try. I don't have the die that is seen in the video but it wasn't too hard to figure out. I inked up my top panel with distress inks to represent the sky and grass and then started cutting. I measured 1/2" in on both sides and 3/4' up from the bottom and simply cut on the lines being sure to not cut all the way to the top (I left a half inch border). I scored the top and bottom of my flap and then again in the middle of my flap. Once all that was done, I simply put my card together with the slider piece underneath attached to the bottom of the flap. I colored up that sweet little girl, sun and flowers and attached them to my card. I wanted the sun to show with the greeting, so I simply attached the sun behind the girl's hat with some foam tape. I think it turned out so cute and I can't wait to get it in the mail on it's way to my crafty BFF :) 




I'm also going to be entering this card into the following challenges:
  1. Shopping Our Stash #307: Happy Mail (This is going into the mail tomorrow)

Father's Day

Hi crafty friends!
I hope you are having a fabulous Saturday!
Today I am back to share a card that I created using some fabulous stamps and dies that can be found in the
 Dies R Us Store

I needed a quick but cute gift card holder for Father's Day so I pulled out some dies and got to work.


I used the Lawn Fawn Fancy Box die and cut out my box from some plaid patterned paper. I cut a piece of white cardstock and used some distress inks to create some grass and a sky. I stamped out some of those adorable moose from the Lawn Fawn Dad + Me and colored them up with my copic markers and used the coordinating Lawn Fawn Dad + Me dies to cut them out. I added my greeting onto some white cardstock and flagged the ends. I popped up my image layer onto my box with some foam tape. Since this will be going to my hubby from my kiddos, one of the moose children needed to be a little girl so I added a little bow.


When you open up the box, I added some more of the plaid paper and cut out a oval from the Lawn Fawn Fancy Box die set and stamped my greeting. I popped it up with some foam tape. This box is the perfect size for a gift card!!


Here is a quick peek (with links) to the products that I used on my card today that can be found in the

Hi everyone! 
I'm back again today with a quick post to share the card that I created for 
Day 3 of the MFT Camp Create
Can you tell I'm playing catch up?? lol!


Day 3 was all about shakers! I love making shakers!!


I love these little sheep and had fun pulling them out and playing with this stamp set again. I stamped my sheep from the Ewe Are The Best stamp set and colored him u with some Copic markers. I fussy cut him out and set him aside while I built my shaker portion of the card. I cut out my heart from some white cardstock and from 2 pieces of fun foam. I layered them together, with a piece of acetate between, and filled my heart with some fun confetti hearts and some flat sequins. I added a back, with my greeting. onto the back of my shaker and added everything to a square gray card base. I cut a heart frame, tied some thread around it and added that to my card. I finished it off by adding that sweet little sheep to the bottom right.

Camp Create 2017 Day 2: Remarkable Resist

Hi everyone! 
I'm back with a quick post to share the card that I created for 
Day 2 of the MFT Camp Create.


Day 2 was all about Resist Techniques. I have to say that when I saw Stephanie Klauck's card that she did for today's technique, I was so inspired by the wood grain background with the pretty flowers sitting on top that I decided to try my hand at that. 



I created my background by stamping my wood grain stamp onto some watercolor cardstock and heat embossing it in white. I ran some gray watercolor over the top, like Stephanie shows, to create my white washed wood background.  I used the scallop rectangle from the Blueprints 27 die set to cut it out and then I adhered the wood grain panel to my card base with some foam tape. I inked up some paper with some distress inks and cut out some lillies using the Lily die from MFT. I added a bit more dimension to the flowers with some dots here and there and darker areas of ink and layered them onto my card. I added my greeting and some sequins and the card was good to go. (I did notice a little extra pink ink on my card after this picture, but that has now been removed by adding a little water and dabbing with a tissue).


Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog today!

I hope you have a great crafty day!!

Camp Create 2017 Day 1: Wonderful Watercolor

Hi everyone! 
I'm back with a quick post to share the card that I created for 
Day 1 of the MFT Camp Create.


Day 1 was all about watercolor. We were to create a project that incorporated watercolor in some way. I decided to make a little watercolor scene with my watercolors and to also watercolor my images. Since it is almost Summer, those cute penguins from the Penguins In Paradise set quickly came to mind. 


 I started with some watercolor cardstock and stamped my palm tree and heat embossed it with some clear embossing powder. I then started coloring my tree with my watercolors and created my sand, water and sky. I used a Cross Stitch Rectangle Stax to cut out my scene panel.  I stamped my penguin and used some clear embossing powder and then proceeded to color him with some watercolors also. I fussy cut him out and popped him up with some foam tape to my scene. I used the Hello from the Happy Greetings dies for my greeting. I finished off my card with some clear wink of stella and some morning dew nuvo drops. I love these penguins!!
