Pink and Main 5th Birthday Blog Hop!!!!

Welcome my friends!! Today is a super special day as we are celebrating the 5th Birthday for Pink & Main!!  I've been on the design team for close to a year and have loved every minute of it!! Michelle is such a delight as well as all her amazing products.  So, Happy Birthday to this amazing company!!

Today, is also release day so the products used on my card today, are available to purchase!


I stamped a background panel using the new Party Balloons Stamp Set.  This also has co-ordinating dies but I didn't use them.  I love the solid images and the separate stamps to decorate them. I cut down the stamped panel with one of the Stitched Rectangles Set 2 Dies.


There's a new interactive element die set available today called the Pull and Flip Dies.  It creates a waterfall effect on your cards and is super cool!  The star, present and party hat dies on this card all come from this set. In retrospect, I should have used different colours on these die cuts to make them stand out a bit more.  To help a bit, I cut a Scalloped Rectangle Die from a piece of vellum and used foam tape to adhere them.


I heat embossed the sentiment (also from the Party Balloons Set) onto the vellum, then used liquid glue behind the star, present and party and adhered to the balloon panel.


I added a few Rainbow Glossy Dots for a bit of shine. If you are new to these, I highly recommend them! There is nothing else like them on the market :)

Now, onto the fun stuff...PRIZES!!
