>Another Pink By Design " Sneak Peek "

Welcome Friends,
Today I have another Pink By Design Sneak Peek for you!
I want to remind you all that today is Sarah’s Super Ustream! Yay for new stamps! Also don’t forget she will be telling us all who the new additions to the Design Team are.
Here is the link to the Ustream: Which starts at 7:00 PM CST
Here is my super sneak for you today!

You could’nt see the glitter in his wings so here’s a different picture

Now one of these is a sneak peek! But I can tell you about the background stamp I used.
For the honeycomb effect I used the Pink By Design Background Stamp ” Wired “! 
I colored in the background stamp using my Prima Colored Pencils. I have never colored at all! So I watched The Fab Paula’s video on how to do this! Thank You Paula! 
So even tho this is a chicken wire background stamp I think it works perfectly for the honeycomb effect!  The Bee and the Honey Goo is from the Cricut Cartridge ” Everyday Pop Up Cards “.  I had to glitter the bee’s wings cause right now I’m going through a faze where everything looks better with glitter 🙂 I used Martha Stewart Fine Crystal Glitter.
 The Ribbon is by Martha Stewart, and do we ever honestly keep track of our buttons LOL? To finish off the button I used some Lemon Divine Twine.
I hope to see you all at Sarah’s Stamp Release tonight!
Have a wonderful Friday 🙂

>A FRUITY HELLO!!!

Hello Everyone,
I hope you have been checking out and enjoying all the wonderful projects the Pink by Design Design Team and Sarah have been making for you on their Our New Home. I think its super neat that now instead of having projects on Fridays their will be one everyday! Keeping your creative juices flowing! Not to mention you can chat it up and post your wonderful creations in the Message Board! Today Is my first day getting to post on the new blog and I am super excited to share my card with you!

For My card I used the Pink By Design ” It’s A Date ” Stamp Set along with Pink By Design ” Vintage Greetings “.  I cut out the It’s a Date SVG and then stamped on top of it. I used Tim Holtz distress Ink in Brushed Corduroy to distress the doily,svg, and around the Graphic 45 images. All pattern paper is Cosmo Cricket ” Garden Variety and the images are from Graphic 45 ” Domestic Goddess “. I felt that card needed a larger pear to make it fruity. I cut the pear at 4 inches using Gypsy Font on my Gypsy. Stickles really made  the fruit in the images pop! I completed the card by using some homemade crinkle ribbon.  I guess when I think of May I think of all the fruit trees blossoming, I am so looking forward to picking some fresh fruit.

Have  a wonderful and safe Memorial Day weekend!
