Christmas Owl - Pink and Main

Hi Everyone!

It is hard to believe that Christmas is just around the corner!  And I have started making my cards.  This is one I made with the OWLidays Stamp set.  It has matching dies to so it makes it even faster to make this cute card!

Here are my design steps:
  1.  Use an olive colored A2 card base cut a slightly smaller piece of white card stock and glue to the front of the card
  2. Cut a 2 inch piece of red and green dotted paper.  And also cut a 2 in checked piece of designer paper (papers are DCWV) 
  3. Layer the checked designer paper with white
  4. Glue down the red and green polka dot paper as shown then in the center glue down the layered checked paper.
  5. Cut an oval out of white card stock glue to card as shown
  6. Stamp the owl (Pink and Main Owlidays Stamp set) and color with copics: E25, 27, 29 - RV29 - R29,  35 - YG00, 03, 23 - C0, 01
  7. Use the coordinating die to cut out the owl and also use Merry Christmas die (Pink and Main)
  8. Glue the Merry Christmas to card front and add plastic snowflake embellishments

Christmas Reindeer! - Pink and Main

Good Morning!
I have a lot to be thankful for this Sunday!  I had to evacuate for Hurricane Matthew and when we returned the house was untouched.  I am so grateful and I am praying for all the people who where effected by this horrible devastating storm.  I am also happy to be making cards again.  I sure missed it!

I used two sets from Pink and Main to make this adorable card.  The sets are Oh Deer and Planning Winter.  I also used the coordinating dies to cut out the reindeer.

As always thanks for stopping by!

Good Morning Pink and Main Fans!

I don't know about you but I am starting to think shopping for Christmas after all it isn't that far off!! I also have to start making my Christmas cards for friends and family.  So I started off by using this cute new set called hOWLidays by of course Pink and Main and the Planning Winter set for the little list.

This is the sketch that I used for the design from Splitcoast Stampers

Sunflowers - Pink and Main

Good Morning!

I hope you all have had a great week!  And I am praying that the new week coming will be even better.  I used two sweet sets for the card I made this week.  The sets are Add a Smile for the sentiment and Sunflowers for the images.  Both of course are from Pink and Main stamps and dies.

Here are my design steps:

  1. Use a white A2 card base then cut a slightly smaller piece of kraft card stock.  For the striped paper you cut it even slightly smaller then the kraft card stock. (All card stock Recollections)
  2. Glue the striped paper to the kraft card stock but do not glue to the front of the card yet
  3. Use a photo corner punch (EK Success) to create the kraft corners and glue to the card 
  4. Cut a strip of orange card stock 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 and a strip of Kraft card stock 2 3/4 x 4 to layer it on.  Run the orange strip through the embossing folder swiss dots and mount to the kraft strip
  5. Glue to striped paper add the ribbon then glue the striped panel to the front of the white card
  6. Cut a 3 x 3 1/2 piece of white card stock and run through swiss dots embossing folder.  Cut a 3 1/4 x 3 3/4 piece of kraft card stock and mount the white piece to it
  7. Use the the wavy stitched die cut to make the grass (Pink and Main) and glue entire panel to card
  8. Stamp and color the images (Sunflowers Pink and Main) with copics: E31, 33, 34, 35, 50 - Y15, 35, 38 - YG23, 25, 63
  9. Die cut out the images use pop dots and add to panel as shown.  Stamp the sentiment (Pink and Main Add a Smile) in brown ink (Memento Cocoa) layer with orange and add to card.  Add pearls in corner to complete!
