Pink & Main – Life is All About Balance

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you still have your sunscreen handy from my summery posts all week because you’re going to need it still! Today I have a super sparkly fun card featuring the brand new Pink & Main June release! It’s so summer and absolutely wonderful for so many interests!

Two things I love most when crafting – critters and getting messy! Today I got to do both and I loved every moment of it! I chose some images from the brand new Flocks of Love stamp set. I colored everything with copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Then I cut a Stitched Arch from white cardstock and used my blending brushes to ink up a sky and some sand. I popped the images up with foam squares to create a mini scene.

Next, I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the set with my favorite aquatini embossing powder! You guys, I’m seriously obsessed with the new Pink & Main embossing powder line! It’s amazing!

Anyway, after the heat embossing was cooled I die cut the sentiment with a Large Sentiment Strip die that fit the length I wanted and popped it up at the bottom of my arch scene with foam squares too.

For my background, I used the Layered Rectangles A2 dies to cut a teal panel the size of my A2 card front and spread Glossy Gel through the new Bubbly Waves stencil. I removed the stencil and sprinkled Ocean Wave super fine glitter on it and set it aside to dry.

I cleaned up my work space and realized, I went about this totally backwards. Lol! It worked out because it was time to cook dinner for my family.

Once the glitter panel was dry, I adhered it to a card base and popped my arch scene up on it with foam tape. Then for finishing touches I added black glaze pen to flamingo eyes, white gel pen accents to various parts of the images and glossy accents to the swimsuit dots, flower center and sunshine in the sky.

Be sure to head to the Pink & Main shop and check out the whole release. It’s so much fun and it sure to get you in the summer spirit!
