Coffee card for guys

Hello Everyone,

It is my turn on the Pink and Main blog today and as the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is still in full swing, I wanted to inspire you with a male card.

I stamped, coloured and die cut the guy and the coffee mug from the Timber set. I also stamped a few pine branches with green ink and die cut them also with the coordinating dies.

I chose a pretty patterned paper form the Be brave paper pad and die cut a fancy tag with a Stitched Top Note die. I cut a smaller one from navy blue cardstock and arranged the die cut images on them.

The sentiment is from the Fall friends stamp set, stamp in black on a thin strip of orange cardstock. I popped it up with 3D foam squares an added some star sequins to the night sky.

After adhering it all onto a dark grey 4,25 inches square notecard, I added glossy accents to the coffee mug to make it pop.

I wish you liked my card today, i will link it up to the Simon Says Stamp Anything goes Wednesday Challenge and to the Coffee lovers Blog Hop. Until next time, happy crafting!

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop – Pink and Main

Hello Everyone,

Today is the first day of the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and I am honored to present you my first coffee card I created for the Pink and Main blog today.

I love the Christmas mugs stamp set and designed a simple card pairing it with the Sweater Weather paper pad. I wanted a soft and cozy look for my images so I stamped them with Lawn Fawn River Rock ink. I coloured them with Copic markers using teal and pink shades. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I heat embossed the sentiment with Silver Sparkle embossing powder on a strip of aqua cardstock which I matted with dark grey.

The pretty knit patterned paper I cut down with the largest from the Stitched Rectangle 2 die set and assembled the card on a white card base. The mug and candies I popped up with 3D foam squares. As a finishing touch I added a ton of clear shimmer and a bit of glossy accents.

I hope you got inspired to participate in the Coffee Lovers event during the next week. There are a ton of prizes to win among which is a 25$ prize package from Pink and Main! YAY! Winner announced on the P&M Blog on November 9th! Happy crafting!

Halloween Treat bags – Pink and Main

Hello Everyone,

Tomorrow is Halloween and even though we do not celebrate it here in Hungary, my kids are so excited to put costumes on and go trick or treating in our block of flats. We did that last year too and they had a ton of fun (all kids are under 9 years). For this occasion I made some gift bags to give away with chocolate inside. I used stamps and dies from Pink and Main.

I started with creating purple bags with the Gift Bag die: I cut the base twice and folded at the crease lines which the die created. I used strong tape to assemble it, it is so easy and quick!

As decoration I used copic coloured images from the Your Spell stamp set, which I cut out with the coordinating dies.

I also heat embossed the sentiment from the Trick or treat stamp set with white embossing powder on black cardstock and cut it out with the coordinating die too. I love the shadow!

I adhered all the images and sentiment after assembling the bag, but it would have been easier to do it before, while it is still flat. I used a bit of clear shimmer on the images and drops of glossy accents. I cannot wait to give these little treats to the kids tomorrow!

Hope you enjoyed today’s post and will check back soon for more inspiration! Till then, happy crafting!

Boo! – Pink and Main

Hello Everyone,

I am here with yet another Halloween cutie which shows you a good example how to use a small image as the focal point on a card. The product I used to make this card are from Pink and Main.

I stamped and coloured the cute hedgehog from the Less tricks stamp set using Copic markers. I cut it out with the coordinating die.

Then I cut a 2 inches wide strip of chevron patterned paper and matted it with orange cardstock. I adhered it to the middle of a black card base.

I die cut a stitched banner from blue cardstock and a small one from green and layered them on top of each. I heat embossed a sentiment from the Fall Sentiment stamp set on purple cardstock and assembled the banner.

After popping up the hedgehog with 3D foam squares and adding some orange glossy dots to the small banners, I felt there is something missing, so I stamped the Boo! sentiment in black above the little critter.

A bit of black glaze pen on the pumpkin and a drop of glossy accent on the stem finished it off.

I hope you enjoyed this simple design and will return soon for more.

See you,

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,

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,

Trick or treat? – Pink and Main

Hello Everyone,

I am here again with a cute treat card for Halloween. I used my favourite design which I love for smaller images: tag on a card. All goodies are from Pink and Main.

I started with stamping the images several times from the Trick or treat stamp set using Versafine Onyx black ink and used clear embossing powder to heat set it. I love the raised edges when I colour with water based markers, as it helps staying within the lines. I used Arteza Brush markers to add such vibrant colours and then I die cut everything with the coordinating dies.

I also white heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock and also die cut it. I love when sentiments have coordinating dies!

For the tag I chose the Arch tag die set and cut a purple and a black one and layered them on top of each other. Arranged the images and added some candy cane twine.

This time the card base is black and I added a patterned paper from the Not to spooky paper pad which I cut down to size with a Stitched Rectangle 2 die.

A bit of glossy accent on the lollipop finished this cute card.

Hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and you will pop in again soon for more. Till next time, happy crafting!
