My Pink Stamper Pink-alicious Blog Hop

Hi Everyone and welcome to the My Pink Stamper Pink-alicious Blog Hop!!

I'm sorry it's been awhile since I posted, but I have some new creations in the works and I will be posting more regularly from now on!  In fact, I have a really cute project on my crafting table right now...just waiting to be posted for all of you!  It will probably be up the first of next week so keep checking back. 

The challenge for this project was to create something using black and your favorite color.  I chose red with a little white thrown in as an accent.  I have to admit, I found this challenge a bit harder than others, mainly because I LOVE color, and lots of it! LOL  So, choosing a favorite was difficult for me.  But, here is what I created.  I hope you like it!  I finally got to test out my new I-Rock tool from Imaginisce (if you look closely, you can see that I added some rhinestones to the inside of the nail brads).  A little sparkle makes this girl happy.  :-)

**Click on any picture for a larger image**


Close up...


For this card, I used one of Robyn's awesome new stamps called "More Faithful Sayings".  It has a ton of fantastic sentiments on there.  In fact, I still have several more ideas that I plan on making in the near future.  So stay tuned!   :-)


If you'd like to order this stamp set (or see other great products that Robyn has available), just go here to find a list of online retailers. 

And finally, I have a great tip that I'd like to share with all of you.  Since I like to attend crops and my collection of My Pink Stamper stamps seems to be growing, I've been searching for some kind of storage method.  And with my sweet hubby's help, I think I've found it! Up until now, I just attached all of my stamps using a ring.  But this way is working much better for me. 

All you need is a reguar sized binder and some 5x 7 photo sleeves. (I bought my photo sleeves online at Staples.com -if you have it sent your local store, shipping is free.  It cost a little over $13 with tax for a pack of 50.  That will hold 100 stamp sets!!) . 

I cut a 5 x 7 piece of white cardstock.  Then, I took my stamp set and lightly adhered it (using removable adhesive) to my piece of cardstock.  Using a Word program on my computer, I typed out the name of the stamp, and taped it to the top. 


Then, I put the stamp in the photo sleeve.  After doing this to all my sets, this is what my new storage system looks like:


And no worries...I've already come up with a plan for Robyn's new 6x8 stamp set as well.  It's going to fit nicely in the front pocket of my binder!   :-)

Recipe for card:

My Pink Stamper More Faithful Sayings Stamp set
Cricut Lite Handyman cartridge (house - cut at 3 1/2")
EK Success Paper Shaper Heart Punch
EK Success Border punch
Cuttlebug Houndstooth folder
Basic Grey "Black Tie Collection for patterned paper
Papertrey Ink cardstock
Bazzill cardstock
Nail brads by Create Impressions
I-Rock & Rhinestones by Imaginisce
Stickles for hearts
Chalk by Pebbles, Inc.
Pop Dots for the house, the roof, and the hearts

Now, on to see what Shauna has created!  But in case you've missed anyone along the way, here is the entire list.  And don't forget to post YOUR creation for this fun challenge over at Robyn's blog!  We want to see what you make too!  Have a wonderful weekend!
