Pink Bow Ties: Pink Friday: My Princess



Hello everyone! 

Back with Pink Bow Ties: Pink Friday using the clear stamp set My Princess


Normally I would attempt to color the image from the stamp set with alcohol markers, 
but I decided to do a project that might appeal to the non-colorists out there. 
I used my heat gun to emboss the sentiment, and my Silhouette Cameo for the crowns. 
I started with the gift box and thought I'd put the sentiment onto the box, 
but then I thought a matching card would be nice, and the gift box could be kept simple. 

It is always fun to see what creative ideas the sentiments from a stamp set inspire beyond the
image that might be included.

This is a perfect project for Father's Day, 
but could also be used on a card from a bride to her father.

Pink Bow Ties: Digital Wednesday: A Mother's Love

Hello everyone!

Today's Pink Bow Ties Digital Wednesday featured stamp is 'A Mother's Love'.

http://pinkbowties.biz/product/a-mothers-love/

This stamp is so sweet and I love the look on the daughter's faces. They remind me of many sisters I've seen. I can imagine my own sister and I looking this way as our confident mom walked with us.

My best friend has two daughters and even though they are older now than the girls in the image appear, it was the perfect image to put on a Mother's Day card for her. 


I also had the idea to make a mini album with this image on the cover, but haven't quite finished putting it together. I had a good coloring session though and it might be my favorite image I've colored yet. 



Besides a card, or mini album, what kind of project would YOU use this image for?

Mother's Day with Vssweetideas

Hello! 

It will be Mother's Day in two weeks, and I have no idea what I am getting my mom for the holiday,
BUT, I do have a card made. ;-) 

I'm a little late with this post, but hopefully you still have time to get this stamp set from
Vssweetideas for your Mother's Day crafting.

It is called Super Mom.

I have to send my card and gift to California, so I was sure to get the set early!

Here are the three cards I made. I used every one of the stamps in this set,
which may be the first in a long time.

I adore this set!




I also used papers from my stash and dies from Studio Calico, and Pretty Pink Posh. 

The last two photos aren't the best, but I haven't had time to stage the cards, so these are ones that I took on my workspace the night I made the last two cards. 

Thanks for visiting!

Pink Bow Ties: Pink Friday: Birthday Wishes

Hello everyone! 

Welcome to my blog. 

Last week I introduced Digital Wednesday featuring a Pink Bow Ties digital stamp design, 
and today I am introducing Pink Fridays!

On Pink Fridays, one of the Pink Bow Ties Design Team members posts a project using a 
photopolymer stamp set by Lameka. 

The stamp set I am using for this Pink Fridays selection is Birthday Wishes!


http://pinkbowties.biz/product/birthday-wishes/ 

I made two projects with this fun set, one masculine and one in pink. 




I love stars, and I used Ranger Enchanted Gold embossing powder to make the stars shine for a fun background on this pink card. Love the sparkle! 




Thank you for viewing my projects!

Also visit the Pink Bow Ties Facebook page to see information about new stamp releases, coming to the website soon.

_____________________________________________

I decided to use Ashanti on a 12x12 inspirational layout that can go in an album 
or hang on a wall! 

I colored the image using Spectrum Noir markers and added some glitter accent to her belt, shoes, and flowers. I think we should all Be Fabulous like Ashanti! I love her confidence. 


The typewriter is also from a Pink Bow Ties photopolymer (clear) stamp set, called My Type
and it is on sale right now! Grab it before it is sold out. ;-)



The paper with typed 'hello' is by from a Studio Calico kit, and the kraft cards with pink foil accents are from Me and My Big Ideas (MAMBI).

An element I love about digital stamps, over physical stamps, is the ability to 
resize the image to suit your project. 

Here is card I added an Ashanti image to, again coloring her with Spectrum Noir markers. 


  On Friday, fellow Pink Bow Ties Design Team member Bev Code
will be posting projects using the photopolymer (clear) stamp set Soulful Sunday. 
Please visit her blog to view those projects!

Egg-tastic Easter!

Hi everyone! 

I'm a couple of weeks early for Easter, but I'm usually late with holiday cards, so I'm going to post this one anyway. LOL

I ordered the 'Fit Planning' set from V's Sweet Ideas and couldn't resist picking up this 'Easter Fun' set as well. Both sets are available for $8.99 each.

My husband and I don't usually do anything special for Easter at our house, but Easter egg hunts were one of my favorite things when I was a child. My mom always made lots of hard-boiled eggs for us to color & decorate, and for her to hide. We always got dressed up for Easter Sunday, but by the time the egg hunt came around, we were usually in comfy clothes. Generally we lived in places where the weather was gorgeous for Easter, and there were always a lot of eggs hidden in tall grass. I enjoyed eating the eggs after the hunt was done. As I got a little older, there were eventually plastic eggs filled with treats. 

Here is the card I made with 'Easter Fun':


The paper is the Wanderlust 6x6 from Studio Calico. I stamped the eggs with Studio Calico Color Theory Inks, and used a Letraset Promarker for some light grey shading to give the eggs some dimension. The basket weaving look is created with Spectrum Noir markers. 

I love the faces on this stamp set! Even though I didn't use them on this first card, there are so many cute options for adding them to the eggs or basket. Next time!

Let me know if you do Easter egg hunts at your house! 
Do you use hard-boiled eggs, or filled plastic eggs with treats? 

Happy Creating!
