Pink & Main June Release Blog Hop

Time to hop!! Hello and welcome! Today is the last day of the Xyron/Pink and Main Blog Hop! What amazing inspiration from both teams, don't you agree!

Let's get started! I used several Pink and Main "Pink Metal Dies", the newest Aloha Pineapple stamp, the Beach Babe 6" x 6" paper pad along with the Xyron® 500 Create-A-Sticker and Xyron® 1.5"Create-A-Sticker machines.

First, I did some die cutting. I used the Aloha Pineapple, Oval, Circle, and Scallop dies from Pink and Main.

I then ran all of the die cut shapes through the Xyron® 500 Create-A-Sticker.

I found it easier to leave the bottom layer on the sticker back. I then layered all the pieces. The Pineapple die cut is inlay technique I've been wanting to try.

I then used my Westcott 12" TimrAir paper trimmer to cut the card base and card layers. I used a chevron embossing folder to add texture to the green card stock.
I then ran all the pieces through the Xyron® 500 Create-A-Sticker.

Now for some stamping. I used the We R Memory Keepers Stamp Press to stamp the "thanks" on the pineapple die cut.

I used several pattern paper from the Beach Babe 6" x 6" stack using the Scallop die set. I lightly misted the back with water and layered the die cuts to create flowers. I used Westcott Hot Glue Pen to assemble.

I dug deep for these rhinestone swirls. They have been in my stash for awhile now...not awhile, more like years. I cut them and placed them on the corners of the card near the flowers.

Some more stamping, I sought the help again from the WRMK Stamp Press and stamped the word "aloha". I used a ombre ink pad by Recollections I purchased last year, to my surprise, it was still very inky. I then fussy cut "aloha" and ran through the Xyron® 1.5"Create-A-Sticker.

Here we go..... the completed card! I truly love how it turned out!

I'm loving the inlay technique!
