I started my card by stamping a ton of the balloons from the Party Balloons stamp set onto some Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock with Distress Oxide ink. The colors I used are Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries, Wild Honey, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, and Tumbled Glass. I cut the balloons out using the coordinating die set.

I created a frame out of white cardstock using a rectangle die and glued a piece of acetate to the back of it. I then glued a row of balloons along the top edge of the frame. Next I took an A2 size panel of white cardstock and blended some clouds on it using a cloud stencil and a light gray ink. I glued another row of balloons on that panel.

I used some doubled up foam tape on the edges of my frame to create a shaker are and filled it up with clear sequins and micro pearls. I closed up the shaker with the cloud panel. For the sentiment I used the Happy Birthday die set from Pink and Main. I also embossed a few smaller sentiments from the Birthday Script stamp set and popped them up on the card.

For the finishing touches on the card I used my Wink of Stella glitter brush on the sentiment strips and I also added a few sequins on the front of the shaker.

Floral Thank You | Pink & Main Release Sneak Peek

Hello everyone! I hope your day is going well! Today I am sharing a card using a stamp set from Pink & Main’s upcoming release.

I stamped the bouquets from the stamp set onto some Bristol Smooth paper with Versamark ink. I embossed them with Alabaster white embossing powder from Brutus Monroe. I then colored in the flowers with Arteza watercolor markers.

I took another piece of Bristol Smooth paper and blended some Distress Oxide ink on the bottom half in the color Twisted Citron. I used the coordinating dies to cut out the flowers I colored in. I then popped those flowers up on the bottom of the Distress Oxide ink panel.

3.JPG

I stamped a sentiment above the flowers with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink. I adhered that whole panel onto a slightly larger panel of pink cardstock and then to a card base.

To finish up the card I added some sequins with Gina K Connect Glue.

Sweet Carousel Shaker Card | Pink & Main

Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing a really fun and sparkly shaker card.

1.jpg

I stamped the adorable unicorn from the Sweet Carousel stamp set by Pink & Main onto Bristol Smooth paper and then colored it in with Arteza watercolor markers. I used the coordinating die to cut the unicorn out using my Big Shot.

Next I took an A2 size panel of white cardstock and cut a square out of it. I glued a piece of acetate to the back to make a window. Using foam tape I went around that window and then filled the space with large clear glitter. I closed up the shaker with a piece of light pink cardstock.

I took the unicorn that I colored in a glued it in the middle of the shaker window. I then glued the whole panel to an A2 size card base.

For the sentiment I picked out a stamp from the Sweet Carousel stamp set and stamped it onto dark gray cardstock with embossing ink. I embossed it with white embossing powder and then popped it up in my card.

Sneak Peek January 2019 Release | Pink & Main

Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing some sneak peeks from Pink & Main’s upcoming January release. This The entire release is so amazing but for today I am sneak peeking four new products on a card.

17.jpg

I stamped the cute image with the bears from the Perfect Couple stamp set with black ink and colored it in with colored pencils. All of the bears in this stamp set are so adorable! I used the coordinating die set in order to cut the bears out.

18.jpg

The next product I am featuring is the Watercolor Foil paper pad. I grabbed a piece of this gorgeous 6 x 6 paper and cut it down for the background on the card.

20.jpg

I wrapped a piece of vellum around one side of the panel to be a base for where I place my bears. I didn't want to cover up the pretty paper, but I also knew my bears needed a base so they didn't get lost. Vellum is a great solution here because it allows you to still see the paper! I popped up the bear onto the vellum with foam tape.

19.jpg

My sentiment comes from the Perfect Couple stamp set. I popped that up on the card and then added some of the new Rose Gold Glossy Dots. As a lover of all things Rose Gold I was ecstatic when I saw these in the release!

Pink and Main Catitude Window Card

For today's card I used the new Catitude stamp set from Pink and Main. I colored in the cats with Arteza Real Brush Pens and the background has Distress Oxide Ink blending.

1.jpg

First I used a T-square ruler to help place a small square die on a piece of 6 x 6 paper to make four windows. Eventually I trimmed this piece down to be 5.5 x 5.5.

2.jpg

I stamped some of the cats from the Pink and Main stamp set 'Catitude' on Bristol Smooth paper. I colored them in with my Atreza Real Brush Pens. For the orange cats I used the colors orange and punch pink. For the blue cat I used Night Sky Blue and Parma Gray. For the gray cat I used Dolphin Gray and Elephant Gray. For the purple cat I used Thistle Purple. I used Bubblegum Pink on all the ears and for blush. Finally I used a white gel pen to add some hightlights. 

3.jpg

For the background behind the windows I blended some Distress Oxide Ink on Bristol Smooth paper. I used Peacock Feathers and Faded Jeans. The card base that I used is 6 x 6. I popped up with window frame with foam tape and also popped up the cats in the four windows. I heat embossed the sentiment "What's mew?" on a strip of black paper and popped that up in one of the windows.

For the finishing touches I added Wink of Stella glitter to the sentiment strip. I also added some dashed lines around each window with a Paper Mate pen. Lastly I added just three silver sequins.
