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

Good morning friends!  Today I'm sharing a card I made using some sweet SugarPea Designs products.

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!

Hugs, Anita
