Pink and Main Baby Bear Card

Happy Saturday, Pink & Main friends! With the holidays around the corner, I am sure that you were expecting a festive project. With all the Fall/Holiday projects I have been making, I needed a break!

My cousin is expecting her first child in the next few days.  So today, I used Pink & Main's Animal Faces, Sweet Faces Set 1, and Little One stamp sets to create a fun baby card.
I used a pretty tan print paper and stamped the bear image. I also stamped the same image on pink paper, to paper-piece the bear's ears. I used some stitched rectangle dies to create the sign. The sentiment is from the Little One stamp set. I used a few different prints to form the layers to the card and attached to the teal card base.
Thank you for stopping by today! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    Joy Clair Snow Fall

    Today on the Joy Clair blog, the design team is showcasing the fun Snow Fall stamp set. It is so inspirational to see what different designs the DT comes up with using the same stamp set!

    I love CAS style cards. So to no surprise I created a simple creation using the Snow Fall set.

    To start this card, I measured out a white mat to be placed on the card base. I knew that I was going to create the space, so I cut the length of the mat one inch shorter. I divided the mat using a snow drift die. I place the two pieces on the card base and used washi tape to mask off the inch area where the opening would be.  I removed the mat and stamped a variety of snowflakes to fill in the space. Once the stamping is done, I removed the tape. I attached the two mat pieces and stamped the sentiment. I did decided to turn the sentiment stamp into two sections.

    Pink & Main Recipe Book

    Happy Saturday, Pink & Main friends! With the holidays around the corner, that means baking season is too! I love to bake! And between my family and my husband's family, we have several different holiday cookies that we make every year! It is time to get them organized!

    Using the new Pink & Main Baker stamp set, I create a little album to keep the recipes in one place!
    I love to paper-piece with stamps! The large images in the Baker set make it very easy to use this technique. I stamped the images on different prints and cut them out. I attached them to create a small counter-top scene. At the bottom, I decided to stamp a couple sentiments from the Baker set. To fill in the empty space at the top, I used Thickers to label 'RECIPES'.  I included a few notecards inside the album.
    Thank you for stopping by today! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    Joy Clair - Merry & Bright Rudolphs

    So have you noticed Christmas music playing in stores? It is still alittle early for me, but I do find myself singing along! My kiddos LOVE singing Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer. And it is that song that inspired today's card.
    I am working with Joy Clair's Merry Christmas Sentiments stamp set:

    When I first saw the Merry Christmas Sentiments set, I was drawn to the reindeer stamp. I wanted to use it to create a background. One day shopping, I found the burlap Rudolph embellishment. So I decided to turn the reindeer into Rudolph by adding a dot of red paint as a nose. To fill in the empty parts on the card, I stamped a small snowflake (from the Christmas Wishes stamp set). The kraft cardstock is added to a red mat and added to the cardbase. A simple sentiment is stamp on a pendant diecut with white ink. The burlap embellishment is added to the front of the card.

    Some of the Joy Clair stamps Christmas/This Season stamps are currently on sale. Check out this section to see some stamp sets on sale.

    Pretty Cute Stamps November Sneaks

    Who wants to see a sneak peek of the upcoming Pretty Cute Stamps November release? I promise you, this is one ADORABLE release!!! I cannot wait for you guys to see the release in its entirety!

    Today I am giving you are sneak peek at the new Doggone It stamp set:

    I used a variety of dies to create the scene. I stamped the dog and the bowl onto cardstock and colored in with a few different markers. I tried to color the dog with a couple different grays to make it look furry. After the images were colored, I cut them out and added them to the scene. A fun sentiment from another set from the November release, Fur Baby, was added at the bottom of the scene.
    Want to see more sneak peeks? Stop on over to the Pretty Cute Stamps blog to see more! And don't forget to come back for the release blog hop starting tomorrow, the 13th!
