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,

It is the last day of the November release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs and we have some frosty fun for you today. Frosty Folks  will have coordinating dies too. All new products will be available on Friday, 15/11!

For the background I added some Tonic Shimmer powder on Ranger Distress Watercolor paper. I spritzed it with water and let the colours move and mix. I dried it with my heat tool and cut the panel down with the postage stamp die from Frameworks.

I stamped and coloured the snowmen with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating die.

I also cut a white postage stamp panel and used the Land border die to cut a snowbank.

On a small white ticket shaped piece I heat embossed the sentiment with WOW Metalline Dark Blue Embossing powder. Before assembling the card I heat embossed some snowflakes in white on the background.

I popped up the sentiment and snowmen with 3D foam squares and added some clear shimmer to the accessories.

I used glossy accents on the noses an buttons and a black glaze pen on the eyes.

Newton’s Nook Designs November Release – DAY 3

Hello Everyone,

We are halfway through the November Release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs but look at the cuties for today! Penguin Pile is a cute small set which will have coordinating dies too. And Let it snow is a beautiful mini set perfect for clean and simple designs! All new designs will be available on Friday, 15/11!

CARD 1

I stamped and coloured the penguins and the ice from Penguin Pile first using Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

I added Ranger Crackle Accents to the ice piece and set it aside to dry.

I adhered them to a thin strip of white cardstock with 3D foam squares and matted it peacock cardstock. For the background I chose a colourful patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs.

The sentiment I white heat embossed on a pink banner which I cut with the Frames and flags die set. Under it I adhered a thinner flag cut with the same die set from patterned paper.

After assembling the card I used glossy accents on the feet and beaks, a black glaze pen on the eyes of the penguins and added some clear shimmer to the scarves and caps.

CARD 2

I white heat embossed the Let it snow sentiment on Bristol Smooth cardtsock 3 times under each other. I used a blending brush to add a soft layer of colour: Blueprint Sketch, Peacock feathers and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide inks.

I cut it down to be 2 and 3/4 inches wide and matted it with Blue Violet cardstock. I added clear shimmer to the snow part to make it more festive. I love how the oxide inks react with water!

On a white card base I used the Snowfall stencil with Gina K Designs Glitz Glitter gel in white. I love the pretty sparkle and tone on tone effect! It gave the perfect background for my ink blended sentiments panel, don’t you think?

Newton’s Nook Designs November Release – DAY 2

Hello Everyone,

It is Day 2 of the November release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs and we continue the winter fun with sledging kitties. Newton’s Toboggan will have coordinating dies too and there is also a gorgeous new stencil coming which makes mountain scene making a breeze. All new products will be available on Friday, 15/11!

I started with stamping and colouring the kitties with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

The scene I created directly on a white card base made of Neenah Solar White 110 pounds cardstock. I used a Life Changing brush from Picket Fence Studios to add Salty ocean and Blueprint sketch distress oxide inks on the top and then laid the Mountains stencil on the card base I added a light layer of Black Sooth Distress Oxide ink.

The snowy hills I created with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink and spritzed it with Avery Elle Shimmer Spritz for a subtle sparkle.

I heat embossed some snowflakes from the stamp set on the sky in white and added the snowcaps with the help of the Mountains stencil and white texture paste.

The sentiments I stamped on white Speech Bubbles which I cut down to size with the partial die cutting technique. The kitties I popped up with 3D foam squares and added a bit of clear shimmer to their caps and scarves.

25 Days of Christmas Tags – Pink and Main

Hello Everyone,

I am back today with another set of cute tags for the 25 days of Christmas tags event by Tracey McNeely. This time we are all showing you tags made with Pink and Main products.

I really love shaped tags and the cute owl on the wreath from the Howlidays stamp/die set was fantastic for this. I stamped it on heavy weight white cardstock, coloured with Copic markers and cut it out with the coordinating die.

I cut another piece and made a fold line a quarter inch from the top. I adhered it to the back of the coloured piece and used my Crop-a-dile to punch a whole and added a golden eyelet.

The sentiment I heat embossed on black cardstock and cut around it with my scissors. After adhering it to the wreath, I used Gold Glitter drops from Nuvo and glossy accents to embellish it. I finished it with chunky red twine from Tonic.

I hope you enjoyed these little ones and will pop in again soon for more inspiration. For details on the 25 days of Christmas tags event please visit Tracey’s blog!

See you soon,

Zsofi
