Pink & Main New Release and Blog Hop



I am so excited to be a guest designer as we celebrate Pink and Main’s February Release with a fun and inspirational blog hop! Be sure to go to the Pink & Main website to check out all the new stamps and dies! Also check out the brand new paper line that is making its debut ... they have 3 new 6x6 paper pads that are perfect for spring and coordinate with each other. Please hop along through all of the design team members’ blogs (and a couple of guest designers too). There will be prizes along the way.


For my project, I used the Seeds of Kindness stamps and coordinating dies.  I love these sweet bunnies - they're so adorable!  I colored the bunnies with copics and then diecut them using the coordinating dies.  I used a black glaze pen on the bunny eyes and noses to give them a bit of shine.  I used distress inks to create the background and then adhered that to a plaid cardbase.  I added a few enamel dots to finish my card.   
 
Each blog has a prize to give away and I am excited to give away the Seeds of Kindness clear stamp set.  To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment here and on every blog in the hop. We will choose random winners from the comments and post them on the Pink and Main blog on February 15.  Here is the lineup for the hop, enjoy!

A Good Friend Is A Blessing

Good morning.  I hope you had a fun weekend. Today's card is one that I made a few months ago but never got around to sharing on my blog.


This sweet image is from Lili Of The Valley.  I have had this stamp forever and I couldn't find it on their website so I'm guessing it may have been discontinued.  This little girl with her puppy just makes me smile!  I colored the image with copics.  The sentiment is from SugarPea Designs and I diecut it using the SugarCuts - Stitched Flags die.  I added a few enamel dots to finish off my card.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Hugs, Anita

Special Delivery

I used the cute penguin from the Happy Mail stamp set to make a Valentine card.  I colored the penguin with copics, fussy cut the image and then added some Glossy Accents to the beak and feet.  I used the Notched Heart Journal Card die and the Heart Journal Card die to cut the cardstock pieces behind the penguin.  I added a few sequins to give my card some sparkle. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

You Are Practically Purr-Fect

Good morning.  I hope you had a fun weekend.  I got to spend a bit of time coloring a cute image from Neat & Tangled


I've had this adorable Kitty's Favorite Things stamp set for quite awhile and decided it was time to give it some inky love :)  I started by stamping the little heart on a piece of white cardstock to create my own background.  Then I stamped the kitty and colored everything with copics.  This was a quick and easy card and I think it will be a purr-fect Valentine for a kitty lover. 

Copics used:
Cat - E33, E31, E30, E50, R11, R00
Hearts - R37, R35

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a great week!

Hugs, Anita

Have A Delightful Day

Good morning!  I hope you're having a fabulous weekend.  I'm sharing a card I made using some adorable My Favorite Things products.


These images are from the Sweet Forest Friends stamp set.  I colored them with copics and then diecut them with the coordinating die-namics.  I stenciled some clouds on the background paper and then diecut a frame using the Stitched Rectangle Scallop Frames die-namics.  I diecut the grassy slope using the Snow Drifts die-namics.  I used a black glaze pen on the animal eyes and nose and used my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the little butterfly for some shimmer.  I sent this card to a young lady that is recuperating from foot surgery.  I hope this brings a smile to her face.

Thank you for stopping by!

Hugs, Anita

Love You

Good morning.  Today I'm sharing a sweet Valentine card using stamps and dies from Your Next Stamp.


This stamp set is Love and Smiles and it is one of my favorite YNS stamps.  The little animals and sweet sentiments are just irresistible and they make perfect Valentine cards!  I colored the bunny and balloons with copics and then diecut them using the coordinating die set.  I diecut the heart paper using the Stitched Rectangle Die and I used the Circles with Stitching and Piercing Marks Die to cut the white cardstock.  I added some ribbon, twine, and little tag.  I used Glossy Accents on the bunny's nose and Wink of Stella clear glitter pennon the balloons.

I'm entering my card in the Your Next Stamp Sketch and Color Challenge #55.

Sending Hugs

Good morning!  I hope you had a fabulous weekend!  Today I'm sharing a card with a cute little panda bear by Gerda Steiner Designs.


This digital image is Peeking Panda and I colored it with copics.  I think this bear has the sweetest little face and I thought she'd go perfectly with the hugs sentiment.  I added some white highlights to her eyes with white acrylic paint and then applied some Glossy Accents to give her a shiny nose.  

I'm entering my card in the Gerda Steiner Designs 28th Share Your Design Challenge.
