Smile Stair-step Card

Hello P&M fans,

My design team project this week is a stair step card. I used the brand spankin’ new set Candid Moments and the matching die set. I also used the new Smile die set. Also, don’t forget about our new paper pads. I just love them, and all the patterned paper came from the new pads. I colored the fun cameras with my pencils and gamsol. I hope you enjoy the new release.


Happy crafting,

Pam Pease, Pink and Main DT


All Things Grow With Love

Hello Pink & Main fans!

I’m so excited to be a guest designer this month.  I’ve used two of the new release sets to create the cards I’m sharing today.

I used the Seeds of Kindness stamps and Seeds of Kindness dies.  I colored the watering can and flowers with copics and then added some white highlights to the flowers with a white pen.  I matted the watering can on a circle and then added the banner sentiment and a few enamel dots.

For my second card, I used the Scentsational stamps and Scentsational dies.  I added some distress inks to the circle behind the cute little skunk.  I colored the skunk and flower with copics and added white highlights to the flower.  I used a black glaze pen on the skunk’s eyes and added some Glossy Accents to the skunk’s nose and feet.  Again, I added a few colorful enamel dots to finish my card.

I want to thank Michelle for inviting me to share in this fun release with the rest of the amazing Pink & Main DT!




Bunnies, bunnies, bunnies

Hello Crafty Friends!! I’m back today to show you some crafty goodness with Team Pink and Main!!

I have been crafting up a storm this weekend and have a few cards to share with you all!

All of which are made using some of  Pink and Main‘s New February Releases!!

With all my cards I started by stamping out my images, from the Seeds of Kindness stamp set, with VersaFine Onyx Black ink onto Strathmore Mixed Media Paper and I colored them with my Clean Color Real Brush markers. I used a waterbrush to blend out and soften the colors. Then all my images were cut out using the Seeds of Kindness Dies.

Patterned papers used in this card are from the new Spring Flings (plaid paper) and the Shades of Spring (green dot) paper pads.

 I used the largest of the stitched rectangle dies for the card front. The largest circle was used for the semi-circle mat and the third largest circle was used to put behind the bunny and watering can.

I adhered all (with the exception of the images) to a plain white card base using my Xyron Mega Runner.

I used 3D dots to prop up the bunny and watering can and add dimension.

The patterned paper used on this card is from the Spring Flings (rainbow chevron) and the Shades of Spring (scallop circle and flags) paper pads.

I used the second to the largest stitched square die for my card mat.

I hand cut two 1″x 2″ pennants and tucked them under the scallop circle.

I used dies from the Stitched Circles and the Scallop Circles dies to house my little wheelbarrow bunny. I attached all together (flat) with my Mega Runner then popped the whole piece up with foam adhesive.

For this card, I once again used the largest Stitched Rounded Rectangle die to cut my patterned paper. This gorgeous houndstooth pattern is from the Spring Color Pop paper pad. The pink gingham, from Spring Flings . And the pink heart paper from the Shades of Spring.

I cut out 2 lacy borders and attached them across the top of the card using my Mega Runner.

I used a glue pen to attach the smile word to the background cut-out. Then attached it to the oval.

I added a foam dot to the bunny which coordinated with the ribbon and laid it diagonally across from the bow to give the card some balance.

You are the sunshine of my life


I am here with light mixed media card. For my card I used  lovely papers from Prima Marketing which I complemented with amazing die cuts made with – Lacy Border Dies and Bubbly Border Dies. And also Stitched Rounded Square Dies.

Whole card is just about layering papers and about some shadows made with watercolour pencils. Nothing complicated. Sentiment is from Prima too.  With this card I wanted to show you different way how to use border dies, how you can play with it.

Have a nice day
