For my project today I created a playful card with the Panda Play Stamp set along with the Panda Play Coordinating Dies.  Adorable panda’s that can hold hearts flowers sentiments and more:)  Super cute!!  In this set is a small leaf stamp that reminded me of bamboo leaves so I created my own stalks and added then in the background, I love how it turned out:)

Try It Out Tuesday – Pink & Main

Daisy Bugs & The New Ergonomic Blender Brush

image (9)

Hello and Happy Tuesday Crafty Friends!  Today I am sharing a card with a stamp set by Pink & Main called Daisy Bugs, I also picked up the Daisy Bugs coordinating dies.  While I was at the Pink & Main shop I wanted to try out the Brand New by Pink & Main “Ergonomic Blender Brush“.  This brush intrigued me for a few reasons, not that I need more blending tools, eeek!!  Below are the reasons:)

image (11)

  • (1) the fact that it can be easily cleaned after each use was a selling point, 1 brush for multiple colors, I liked it!  Saves space and it cleans up with just a stamp shammy.  This way you use one tool for all your different colors of oxide inks:) Nice huh!
  • (2) It has it’s own storage case that can sit on your desk without taking up to much room, I liked it!
  • (3) I think the price point was great, I actually picked up 2:)  Really you only need one.
  • (4) It blended flat on my cardstock, meaning the entire surface of the brush is sitting on the cardstock panel.  All of my other blending brushes have a curved or bowl shaped edge and will not.  The Ergonomic Blender Brush transferred the ink to my paper with more surface area covered also, beautifully I might add:)
  • (5) The handle was soft and very comfortable to hold and blend to with:)

Although I only used it once for today’s project I think this is an AMAZING brush that will replace all my other blender brushes, I absolutely loved it!!  Check it out I think you will love it too:)

As a disclaimer I have to tell you I purchased ALL the products today with my own money and was NOT asked to do a review, I wanted to share it with you!  The Pink & Main “Daisies” stencil I used for my background is so pretty and dainty also:)
