Gloriously 60 Day 36 Art – Pig Fun

Hi Angels!

When I saw this cute Pig Time set from Pink and Main it just tickled and made me smile. And we can always use a smile

One of the Pink and Main designers used a partially stenciled background on her samples for the set so I decided to case that technique for these cards. I used Pink and Main Daisies & Flora stencils and the pigs are colored with Prismacolors.

There are more piggies in the works. Stay tuned.

Have a Blessed Sunday!

Gloriously 60 Day 32 Art – Classic Pink & Black

Hi Angels!

We are certainly feeling the after effects of 2 long driving days but it’s great to be home.

Since I’m dragging just a bit, it was super easy to grab my new order from Pink & Main and create tonight’s card.

Usually when I do a pink & black combo, I grab a vibrant pink. This ballet pink grabbed my eye when I dug into my scraps so I opted for a softer look. I used Pink & Main’s Bold Butterfly Plate A along with Taylored Expressions Simple Strips Birthday to complete this card quickly.

I hope you find some time to create this week while enjoying the beginnings of summer.

Gloriously 60 Day 29 Art – Discover Your Wings

Hi Angels!

Today we are in Riverton Wyoming to visit my husband’s aunt. We decided since we were so close we would add a day to our trip so we could visit, plus see a bit more of the country.

Today’s challenge card was fun to design after seeing something similar on Pinterest.

I pulled an older Taylored Expressions stamp set out called Discover Your Wings for the dragonfly & sentiment. I also used Taylored’s circle masking stencil with Pink & Main’s Flora Stencil for the background. This would look beautiful in several different color combos.

I hope you are having a great Memorial Day Weekend!

Gloriously 60 Day 9 Art – Mother’s Day Teacup

Hi Angels!

Happy Mother’s Day!

I had lots of fun creating Mother’s Day cards for both my daughters & my daughter-in-law. I will share each one over the next couple of days.

Up first is the card I made for my daughter-in-law, April. I love how vibrant this card came out.

The background is done with Pink and Main’s Flora Stencil. It’s not quite long enough for a slimline so I creatively placed the washi tape to disguise the seam line. The teacup & sentiment are from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps In This Together stamp set. It’s heat embossed in silver and watercolored.

I haven’t been too great about family cards for holidays. I usually get birthdays, anniversary & Christmas done but I’m going to work on creating for a few extra holidays.

I hope your Mother’s Day has been blessed with family & friends.

Have a Fabulous Week!

Glorious 60 Day 5 Art – Amazing

Hi Angels!

Running just a bit behind the power curve tonight, was working on another design. I was out assisting with the granddaughters earlier today, the youngest has an ear infection and had to go to the doctor. Some days just take detours & you go with the flow.

I’m working on some slim lines so it was easy to grab a few items to make tonight’s card. I precut bases & layers to grab while creating.

I used a hand colored background with Catherine Pooler Designs new Light Burst Slimline Die and a mixture of sentiments to create this design. It needed just a little something so I reached for Pink & Main’s new Sparkle Gems. They are so pretty and have an iridescent shimmer.

Thanks for popping in!

Hello Beautiful Slimline

Hi Angels!

It has been a busy week as I had some errands to run & was prepping the Cards for the Troops shipment. You can see the details of the shipment on my Facebook page.

After 2 days of dealing with migraines & still taking care of things, I finally made it out to the studio for a few minutes to create. I just love how this card came out.

Isn’t it just gorgeous! I used the new Brutus Monroe Slimline Stencil Victorian Swirl with Catherine Pooler inks. Then I used the new Pink & Main slimline die sets Stitched (layers of stitched rectangles), Beautiful & Sympathy. Another great set of dies that coordinate together.

The Troop cards are always a kindness project plus I gave some encouragement this week too. Sometimes it’s the little bits of kindness that can mean the most.

I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

Thanks for stopping by.
