It's Pink Tuesday! Pink Cricut Design Team Day (with a sneak peek)!

Hi Everybody!
I love Tuesday's 'cause it's my turn to share a Pink By Design project with you! Now I am one of those people who doesn't think about Christmas until about November 30th (oops!). This year, though, Pink By Design stamps have given me a jumpstart! Here are the details for my project:

*Pink by Design = Postcard background stamp + a Sneak Peek set!!
*Twine = Trendy Twine
*Stampin' Up! = patterned paper, ink
*Joanns = green paper

*Here's the tip I want to share today. To give this postcard the weathered, rolled up edges:

1. Tear paper edges (pull TOWARDS you when ripping).
2. Press a baby wipe to the edges of the paper.
3. While the paper is damp, roll/curl it.
4. Ink the rolled edges.

The edges should look similar to this:

That's it! Super simple, but I love the way the aged look of the postcard combined with the vintage feel from the PBD stamps come together :) If you try this technique, make sure you post your project over on the PBD messageboard HERE!

Don't forget Sarah is releasing her next set of stamps THIS FRIDAY!! You can find details HERE.  TFL, and hope everyone gets a chance to craft today :)


  1. this is a pretty neat tip! love the card! and the colors!!

  2. Very cute :) I really like that great thinking on what to use the stamp for.
