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,

Zsofi

Clean and simple Halloween

Hello Everyone,

While my blog was all in Christmas mood this week, today I wanted to give you another quick and easy Halloween card idea. This cute card was made with goodies from Pink and Main.

I stamped the cute bear from Less Tricks on white cardstock and coloured him with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut him out.

I also die cut a corner web from black cardstock.

For the background I chose a pretty foiled night sky from the Galaxy paper pad, cut it down to cover the front of an A2 sized card. I added a thin strip of dark grey cardstock to the bottom and adhered the corner web too. Then I popped up the bear with 3D foam squares.

I white heat embossed a sentiment and added 3 cute little spiders (Doodlebug stickers). That is the only embellishment I used on this cute and simple Halloween card.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration an will pop in again soon! Till next time, happy crafting,

Zsofi





Happy Haunting – Pink and Main

Hello Everyone,

Halloween is getting closer and I am still not finished with sharing Halloween inspiration. Today’s spooky card is an almost one layer one, created with the Less Tricks stamp set from Pink and Main.

I started with masking 3/4 inc stripes on a white top folding card base. I used Wilted Violet and Milled Lavender Distress inks to create colourful stripes.

I stamped and coloured the cute critters from the Less Tricks stamp set and added colour with my Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

After making sure that the distress stripes are dry, I white heat embossed some of the Halloween sentiments from the Fall sentiments stamp set.

I adhered the die cut critters and used the little stars from the Less Tricks stamp set as embellishments around them. I stamped them with Milled Lavender Distress ink.

A bit of clear shimmer and glossy accents finished this simple but cute card.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and you will come back again soon for more!

See you,

Zsofi

Warm wishes – LDRS Creative

Hello Everyone,

It is Zsofi here with you today with my last post for LDRS Creative as a Design Team member. I am so grateful to Angie for having me and to the wonderful ladies on the team who were cheering me for the last year. This card is to all of you, with all my heart!

I started with die cutting the Down Main Street die 2 times from heavy weight white cardstock and adhered them together.

Then I cut the beautiful snowflake patterned paper from the Christmas Cottage Paper Pad to be 2 and 3/4 inches by 5 and a half inches. I embellished it with silver glitter cardstock on the longer edges and adhered it to a white note card.

I used liquid glue to mount the white houses and stamped the sentiment from the Cardinal Seasons stamp set using Scarlet Rose Hybrid ink.

To make it more festive I added some White Blizzard Nuvo drops to the snowflakes and Star Dust Stickles to the roofs to imitate snow.

I love how elegant and pretty it turned out with that pop of red on the bottom.

I hope you enjoyed my card and will return soon for more inspiration.

See you,

Zsofi

MFT Card Design Superstar

Hello Everyone,

The best competition for cardmakers is the Card Design Superstar contest organised by My Favorite Things. I wish it came a week later or I had more time, I would love to compete in all categories. But I managed only one, Clean and Simple Genius.

For my card I stamped the cutest puppy ever from the BB Happy Pawlidays set and coloured him with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut him out.

Then I worked on the winter background: I added blue and purple shades of alcohol inks on Yupo paper and blew them to move and mix. I set it aside to dry. When it was all dry I applied White Glitz glitter gel through the card sized star confetti stencil.

Until it was drying I looked for the perfect tag die and I found it among the Tag Builder Blueprints 4 set and cut 3 from white cardstock. When the alcohol inked background was dry I cut it with the same die and stacked them together.

I white heat embossed a small sentiment on the top of the tag and popped up the dog with 3D foam squares. On a white notecard I adhered 2 thin strips of white glitter cardstock to make it more festive.

I used white ribbon and white twine on the tag and mounted it on the card base. A little clear shimmer on the cap and glossy accents on the nose and light bulbs finished it off.

I wish you like my card for the contest and will come back tomorrow for more inspiration.

See you,

Zsofi

Clean and simple holiday – LDRS Creative

Hello Everyone,

It is Zsofi here with a very clean and simple holiday card made with gorgeous patterned paper from the new release. Christmas Cottage has amazing designs and i wanted the florals to be in the spotlight.

I cut down the patterned paper a bit and matted it with red cardstock. I love layers on my cards.

The sentiment it from the Cardinal Seasons Petal Pushers stamp set, I heat embossed it with red embossing powder 2 times for a smoother and more dimensional look. I stamped another sentiment under it using Evergreen Hybrid ink.

I die cut it with an oval die from the Scalloped Rectangle Frame die set. The pretty tag die from the same die set I cut from green cardstock and lead some glitter tape through the holes on the sides.

I popped up the tag with 3D foam squares and secured the glitter tape on the back of the panel before adhering it to a white A2 sized notecard.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and will come back again tomorrow for more inspiration!

See you soon,

Zsofi

Simple Simpathy card – Pink and Main

Hello Everyone,

I am back again with a clean and simple card design I created for Pink and Main. Making cards for difficult times is always challenging, but with changing up the colours and the sentiment, you can create a card set even for all occasions.

I started with stamping the Kindness Floral stamp on Neenah Solar white cardstock with black Copic friendly ink and I coloured it with my alcohol markers.

Then I gold heat embossed the sentiment from the Forever in my heart stamp set. I love this delicate hand written one, looks pretty in gold. To make it stand out more, I double heat embossed it for a smoother,shinier result.

I trimmed down the panel and matted it with black cardstock. I added a very thin gold sparkle cardstock to the longer sides and used a little piece of a black and white patterned paper from the Spring Color Pop paper pad in the background.

I added a couple of white gel pen dots to the leaves and used a black glaze pen on the black strokes. I also added a bit of clear shimmer to the middle of the flowers and emphasized some details with glossy accents.

A few black onyx crystals finished it off.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and will come back for more soon. Until next time, happy crafting!
