You Crack Me Up

Happy Saturday, Pink & Main friends! I know that Easter is still a few weeks away, but I am trying to be ahead of schedule. Part of the January release includes stamp sets for couple different holidays. If you have not had the chance to look at the stamp sets, please check it out HERE!

 Today, I am working with the Easter Peeps stamp set.

I stamped the cute chick image a few times and colored the images to match the printed paper. The chicks are cut out and set aside. I used two different prints to form the card front. The sentiment is stamped onto a cutout banner. The chicks are attached to the card and the card is finished.
Thank you for stopping by today! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Joy Clair - Song of Solomon Card

 Hello, Joy Clair friends! It is Jessi from Kissin' Krafts. I am excited to be sharing one of my latest Joy Clair projects with you today!
As you may know, Joy Clair has started a new line of Bible Journaling stamps, Color by Faith. These stamps are full of amazing images that are perfect for bible pages and even cards!
Today, I am working with the new set, Song of Solomon.
Song of Solomon Clear Stamps - Joy Clair - 1
Here is the card I made using this fun stamp set:
I used the heart outline stamped in the center with red ink. On a piece of black cardstock, I stamped the "Mr. & Mrs." and banner stamps using white ink and embossed in white as well. Once the images were dried, I cut the banner out and attached on top of the heart outline. The simple sentiment "Congratulations" from the Many Blessings stamp set is stamped at the bottom of the panel. The white panel is attached to a black mat. The mat is attached to a printed card-base.
What to learn more about Color by Faith stamps or see a number of inspirational projects using the stamps, please join the Color by Faith Facebook group!

LOVE Burlap Banner

Hello, DCWV friends! It is Jessi from the DCWV Social Network design team. Can you believe that Valentine's Day is less than one month away! Perfect timing to bring out the Valentine's Day décor!
I have a fireplace mantel that I leave the same décor on it year round. However, this past Thanksgiving, I decided to decorate it for the fall. I had so much fun switching the décor from fall to winter and have been looking forward to doing something different for Valentine's Day.
Recently, I received some new product available, Gold Threaded Burlap, at Hobby Lobby stores. One stack was of burlap paper that included strand of gold throughout the burlap. I knew right away, I wanted to make a banner with it! So I trimmed the sheet to make the banner pendants. Time to gather up the supplies!
Next thing to do is to paint the letters using stencils.
To help bring out the gold touches, I wanted to added additional gold to the banner. Using DCWV Foil cardstock, I punched out hearts and created these doilies to be placed in between the pendants. After the paint dried, I punched holes in the top corners of the pendants. (These will be where you where string the pendants together.
To piece the banner together, fold the doilies in half and glue with the twine in the crease. Place one the first pendant of the banner and attach another doily. Repeat until the banner is complete!
Thank you for stopping by today! Be sure to keep visiting! There are some amazing things in work at DCWV! We cannot wait to share them with you!

Hello, Pretty Cute Stamp fans! Hope you are having a fabulous week! I am excited to share my project with you today!

I am working with the adorable Doggone It and Fur Baby stamp sets!

These dogs are 'barking' to be a part of a scene card! I used a diecut rectangle to create the scene. Using distressed inks, I blended the ink to make the sky and grass. The dog and dog bowl images are stamped and colored onto cardstock. The images are cut out and attached to the scene. The scene card is attached using foam dots to the card base. A few cloud die cuts are added to the scene. A sentiment is stamped and embossed in white on a black banner. The banner is attached to the card.

All You Need Is Love

Happy Saturday, Pink & Main friends! I just got back from the CHA show and I had a blast! I even got to meet the sweet Pink & Main boss, Michelle, in person! She is amazing!

Have you seen the new January release? It is full of super fun images and a variety of stamp sets, including some fun word sets. The fun thing about the word sets...they come with their own matching word dies...INCLUDING a shadow die!!!

 Today, I am working with the True Love stamp set.
I LOVE the kraft, red and white color combination. I wanted to give it a try on a Valentine card. When I saw the True Love stamp set, I knew this would be the perfect one to use the combo on. I gathered a few heart stamps from other Pink & Main stamp sets and stamped then in white, pink, and red inks. I wanted it to look like the hearts were falling, so I stamped the larger ones at the top and moved to the smaller hearts towards the bottom. I stamped the LOVE sentiment in white ink in the bottom right corner. It was a very simple card to create. Just be careful on stamping the hearts and not smear the ink from another heart.
Please continue to stop by the Pink & Main blog to see the January Release!
Thank you for stopping by today! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    Welcome Sweet Baby

    Happy Saturday, Pink & Main friends! We are spending the weekend at the CHA Mega Show. We are sharing our January Release at the show! There are so many adorable sets coming out and we cannot wait to share them with you!

    Today, I am sharing a card I made using the new Sweet Dreams Baby stamp set.
    This boy on the moon image is too adorable! I wanted to make sure it was the star of the card. I used a few different markers to color in the image. Once the image is colored, I cut it out. I stamped the cloud images with white, along with the sentiment. I feel that the white really pops! The moon image is attached with foam dots.
