Season's Greetings with Pink and Main

Hello Everyone,

I am back today with a sparkly whimsical holiday card made with a stencil, glitter paste and the cutest flamingo ever!

I started with applying Purple Glitz Glitter gel on kraft cardstock through the Herringbone stencil. I used Pixie spray first on the stencil and it ensured it stayed put while adding the gel with a stencil pal.

While the background was drying I stamped and coloured the flamingo from the Oh Deer stamp set with Copic markers and cut it out with the coordinating die. By the way this set is on SALE now at the Pink and Main online store! I cut a piece of kraft cardstock, matted it with purple cardstock and die cut a stitched fishtail banner from Ice Rink sparkle sheet. I also cut a smaller banner from purple cardstock and layered them on top of each other.

I assembled the card and used the top part of the sparkly banner as snow under the flamingo. The sentiment I stamped on yellow cardstock and cut it down to a flag shape with my scissors.

As a finishing touch I stamped a couple of white snowflakes around the flamingo and covered the beak and legs with glossy accents. I also added clear shimmer to its hat and emphasized the eye with a black glaze pen.

I hope you got inspired and will try this technique!

See you soon,

Zsofi

Sparkly holiday wishes – Newton's Nook Designs

Hello Everyone,

I am on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog today with this sweet and sparkly Christmas card. I love glitter paper and I am on a die cutting wave nowadays as the year is ending and the days are busier than usual.

I have the Peppermint die for a while but I have not had the chance to use it. So I die cut the full circle and the candy “wings” from white glitter cardstock, and the topper from pink and blue glitter cardstocks and adhered them together.

I cut a 2 inch wide strip of Fog cardstock, matted it with a slightly wider white on and adhered the candies leaving space for the sentiment, which is from the Sentiments of the season stamp set, stamped in green.

For the background I chose a matching candy paper from Doodlebug Designs. By the way, this design can easily be adapted to birthdays too, just swap the sentiment!

I hope you enjoyed today’s quick holiday card and will pop in again tomorrow for more fun!

See you,

Zsofi

Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop

Hello Everyone,

I am super excited to be joining the 7th Annual Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop organised by Newton’s Nook Designs! For this very special event I created this cute Christmas card using one of my favourite holiday stamp sets.

I started with stamping and colouring the cute bear in the car from the Winston’s home for Christmas set with Copic markers and fussy cut it out.

To set the scene I die cut a stitched rouded rectangle with the Frames and Flags die set from blue cardstock and used white texture paste over the Petite Snow stencil.

While it was drying I cut a piece of light grey cardstock with the same die to be the road, and a white scalloped rectangle from the same die set to be in the background. I decided to add a silver metallic layer in between the two just because I love layered cards.

The sentiment I white heat embossed on silver metallic cardstock and die cut it with the rounded tag die from the Tag times two die set. I also die cut some pine from dark green cardstock and a red bow using the Pines and holly die set. I layered these on top of each other and assembled the scene.

I added a red and white striped patterned paper to a white top folding card base before adhering the scene in place. I used a clear shimmer pen on the bow and the presents, added glossy accents on some parts of the car and ribbons and my card was all done!

Pink and Main and Thermoweb Collaboration – Die cutting flock

Hello Everyone,

I am so excited to show you what I have created for the Pink and Main and Thermoweb Collaboration. For my project today I was playing with white Flock Transfer sheets and Red Glitz Glitter gel.

I started with the background: on a piece of red cardstock I secured the Four Point Star stencil with Pixie Spray to make sure it will not move while I am applying the Red Glitz Glitter gel. Believe me this spray is a game changer! No more gel seeping under the stencils! It ensure perfect results every time and can be washed off the stencil simply with warm water and a nail brush. I used a Stencil Pal to apply the glitter gel – it is so easy to get smooth results with this tool!

Until my panel was drying I stamped the cute owl from Howlidays and quickly coloured with Copic markers. I used traditional colours but it would look gorgeous in any colour combination. I used the coordinating die to cut it out.

To create the focal point I wanted a frame around my little owl, so I die cut the Wreath Base die from white Flock Transfer sheet. I love the touch, it is so warm and adds a lot of interest to a simple die cut! The thickness of it is just perfect, the die makes the edges beautifully rounded!

The sentiment I stamped on a banner which I created with the banner stamp from Sketched Easter. I heat embossed it on dark brown cardstock with Hot Chocolate Embossing Powder. It gives a shiny tone-on-tone look. I curved the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Howlidays stamp set to fit in the banner and white heat embossed it.

I die cut the background with a stitched rectangle die and assembled the card. I added some clear shimmer to the ribbons and covered them with glossy accents just as the beak of the owl. I used a black glaze pen on the eyes to make it shiny.

Meowy Christmas – Pink and Main

Hello Everyone,

It is my turn on the Pink and Main blog to show you some super cute inspiration for the upcoming holidays.

I was scrolling through my stash and I found the gorgeous Bubbly Border die set which I have never used before. I die cut the outline die from Sparkle sheets and the bottom part from plain white and green cardstocks. I layered them on top of each other and adhered them to a stitched rectangle I cut from kraft cardstock.

For the focal image I used one of my favourite stamp sets called Santa Paws. I stamped, coloured and die cut the kitty with the tree and popped it up on a white Nested Hexagon. I layered a red scalloped one under it to make it more festive.

The sentiment I stamped in green and added some clear shimmer to the santa hat, presents and Christmas baubles. I finished this cute scene with glossy accents on the bows and ornaments. I adhered it all to a white card base and I was done with this cute holiday card.

I wish you liked my inspiration today and will check back again soon. Until next time, happy crafting!

Snow Merry Christmas

Hello Everyone,

I am here with you with my weekly inspiration for Pink and Main. I brought you a clean and simple yet super cute Christmas card.

I stamped and coloured the cute snowmen from the Snow Sweet stamp set using Copic markers. I cut them out with the coordinating dies. What I love the most about Pink and Main dies apart from being pink is that they come separated. No need to cut them apart.

For the background I chose patterned paper from the Jolly paper pad. I also die cut 3 white Reverse scallop circles and stacked them together. One of the inner parts I inked up with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink and paper pieced it in the middle.

The holiday sentiment is from the Howliday stamp set, I stamped it above the snowmen with red ink and above it the Snow word from Snow Sweet.

I covered their outfit with clear shimmer and added glossy accents to the noses and ice.

I hope you liked my card today and will pop in again soon for more inspiration. See you soon,

Shimmery Christmas – Pink and Main

Hello Everyone,

I am back today with a very easy technique to create stunning Christmas cards. This design is also easy to mass produce! I used products from Pink and Main.

I took a piece of watercolour paper and white heat embossed almost all the snowflakes from the Flurries stamp set. I used a stamp positioner so I had to find the arrangement only once and it allowed me to stamp again and again.

Then I sprinkled some Violet Brocade Shimmer Powder on one panel and Lilac Waterfall on the other. I spritzed it with water and let the colours spread. I heat set it with my heat tool and repeated the process.

When it was dry, I cut it down with a stitched rectangle die and matted it with a scallop rectangle which I cut from white cardstock and from Night Sky sparkle sheet for the other card.

I die cut the Merry Christmas sentiment from Ice rink and Night Sky sparkle sheets, I love how sturdy these sheets are!

After assembling the cards I embellished the snowflakes with Iridescent jewels. The sparkle an shine is incredible!

I wish you liked my cards today and will pop in again soon for more inspiration!

See you,
