Thanks! - Pink and Main

Good Morning to all of you!!
I am featuring several new dies today plus using a set from a past release that I think has so many fun uses!
The new die set has the word Thanks, a shadow plus a coordinating stamp set.  The other stamp set I used is a floral set which has a great selection of small flowers and leaves called Florals.  It also has a matching die cut set. And last but not least is the oh so versatile stitched rectangle die set with the rounded corners! I am in love with this set and use it all of the time!

Design steps:
  1. Start with an A2 purple card base (Recollections)
  2. Use the largest of the stitched die set (Pink and Main Rectangle Stitch Dies) and cut out a white piece of card stock then cut off the top at about 2 1/2 inches
  3. Put the remaining piece of the stitched die cut on the bottom of your purple card front and the top flap on the top half of the card as shown.  ( You may have to cut off a small piece of the purple card base to get things to match up)
  4. Cut out the shadow for the thanks in light purple and the word thanks in dark purple (Pink and Main Thanks to You)(Recollections) adhere to the top flap
  5. Stamp roses (Pink and Main Florals) on the light purple card stock with a dark purple ink (Eggplant SU) use the matching die cuts to cut all the flowers out
  6. Stamp the leaves (Pink and Main Florals) on green card stock with dark green ink (Artichoke SU) use the matching die cuts to cut all the leaves out
  7. Adhere all the flowers and leaves to the front of the card as shown.
  8. Stamp the small dots (Pink and Main Florals) around the flowers (Pale Plum SU)
  9. Add clear sequin (Hobby Lobby)

Hope you have a great day!
Blessings

Thanks to You! - Pink and Main

Good Morning!
I love experimenting with watercoloring.  The card I made was so easy and a lot of fun! 
IMG_0962
Design steps:
  1. Use a A2 white card stock base. Cut a slightly smaller purple piece of card stock and adhere to the front of the white card base (Recollections card stock)
  2. Cut a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of watercolor paper (Canson 120lb).  Wet brush the watercolor paper diagonally from the upper left corner to the lower right corner just going half way. Using your purple watercolor drop some purple first in the lower left corner and let it spread added purple as you desire. 
  3. Dry the watercolor paper when you have achieved the look you like
  4. Then from the upper left corner wet brush your watercolor paper to the bottom right corner on the opposite side of the purple. Using your teal watercolor drop some teal starting in the upper right corner letting it bleed down to the purple adding teal as needed.
  5. Dry the watercolor paper when you have achieved the look you like
  6. Then splatter with purple and teal watercolor. I also splattered with white acrylic paint.
  7. When everything is completely dried use versa mark ink and stamp the sentiment (Pink and Main Thanks to You). Use white embossing powder. Heat set
  8. Using a versa mark pen draw you border lines and use white embossing powder and heat set
  9. Add you butterflies (Recollections)
As always I am so happy you stopped by!
