Welcome everyone! Today I’m over on the Pink & Main blog sharing a super fun fall themed card that is just packed full of all the fall feels! I hope you like it!
I started by stamping a variety of images from Cozy Critters and colored them with my copic markers. These guys are just too cute, it was super hard to choose just a few of them! Once they were colored, I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. For my sentiment, I used a bunch of new goodies including the Happy Fall word dies with the adhesive sheets and super fine glitter!
To create the words, I cut a piece of adhesive sheet and adhered one side to a piece of white cardstock. Then I used the happy fall die cut to cut it out. I removed the release paper from the top of the adhesive and sprinkled foliage super fine glitter on it. I used the finger to press the glitter into the adhesive and it created this gorgeous sentiment! After that I cut the shadow from vellum and adhered them together.
For the background I chose the blue spotted paper from Pumpkin Season, cut it to A2 size and adhered it to a white card base. Then I used the Plaid Cover Plate bundle to cut my plaid overlay. One layer is kraft and the other is a burnt orange cardstock from my stash. I love the fall color palette! It just makes me so happy!
Moving on to assembly, I used EZ Squeeze liquid adhesive to attach my background layers together, the sentiment dies and my two larger critters. Then I added foam squares to the smaller ones and popped them up. For finishing touches I added glossy accents to all the cheeks and noses but didn’t want to distract too much from that awesome glittered sentiment!
Hello again! I have been totally immersed in everything fall and Halloween lately and just loving it! Today I’m over on the Pink & Main blog with a couple of infinity shaker cards featuring some older products paired with the new Hello Bootiful! These ghosties are just super fun so I couldn’t stop at one card.
To start my cards, I stamped the images from Hello Bootiful and colored them with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Next, I stamped and heat embossed sentiments from the set on black cardstock and used the large sentiment strip dies to cut those out too.
To create my card front, I cut a piece of black cardstock to A2 size and slipped it inside a plastic sleeve I used to store my cards in. These are a bit oversized so I lined the back with the new EZ tear tape and folded the sides in to secure them. Then I poured some of the new extra fine glitter in the top and sealed that up too.
It did that twice, once with foliage glitter and one with pumpkin spice. Then I die cut the spider web cover die with white cardstock and iridescent vellum and glued them to the front of the shakers. I thought it would be fun to add a frame so I cut 2 black reverse scalloped rectangles and glued those down next.
I added foam squares to the back of my images and sentiment strips and placed them on the shaker panels next. Then I moved on to finishing touches.
For those I added glossy accents to ghost cheeks and tongues. Then unicorn Stickles on the spider and the boo letters the ghosts are holding.
Because of the minor bulk on the back of these panels, I went ahead and used more EZ tear tape to adhere the shaker card fronts to white card bases.
After that, these super cute cards are all finished and ready to go!
Hey friends! I have some fun cards to share today using the leftovers of a card I made ages ago. These are all pull of Pink & Main goodness and are the result of a card I made for them back in June. Click HERE to check out the original post.
Whenever I make rainbows like these I end up with 6 rainbows in the end. Most of the time I make all of the cards immediately but this time I just tucked the rainbows away for another day. Well, that finally came because these new long legged cuties were just too perfect for the occasion. So I used the new Bearly Wait bear and the sentiments in it for a few. Aren’t they adorable?!?
But I didn’t feel like doing all bears when this adorable flamingo from Stand Tall is just as perfect and fun!
These were just a few quick cards that were fun to create and I wanted to share for more inspiration!
Hello again everyone! I’m over on the Pink & Main blog today with another fun fall-themed card using one of the new August release stamp sets called Oh Nuts! Since last summer when we had a teeny baby squirrel literally fall into our lives, I’ve had an extra special place for them and am drawn to all the cute squirrel things I see. So it was a no-brainer that I just had to use this new set immediately!
To start, I stamped a bundle of the images from the set and colored them all with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and switched to my background. For that, I decided to play with the new Pumpkin Season paper pad. I’m absolutely swooning, in love over this entire pad! It’s the best for this fall-loving girl!
I thought the blue leafy paper was great for a sky so I cut it to A2 size and then trimmed a 1 inch strip of the brown dotted sheet for my ground. I adhered them together with my EZ Squeeze liquid adhesive and then to a white card base. Next, I added foam squares to all my images so I could decide final placement.
Using those as a guide in my MISTI, I stamped my sentiment in the open air spot on the left side of the tree. Then I removed the release paper from my images and popped them all in place.
For finishing touches on this card, I added glossy accents to the squirrel’s eyes and noses and then to all the nuts.
Don’t these cuties just look mischievous, like they’re getting away with something. I just love it! It totally cracks me up!
I hope you enjoyed today’s card and found a little inspiration to create something wonderful and share it with someone!
Hello again, I know it’s a busy day but it’s packed full of cuteness so it can’t be all bad, right?!? Thanks for hanging in there with me. I’m also over on the Pink & Main blog today with a few sneak peeks of the upcoming August release. It’s full of fall amazingness and I’m swooning over every bit of it!
I used the new embossing folder to give my sky a little texture and inked the blue cardstock with a darker blue ink and my blending brush for added definition and texture. I stamped and colored images from the new Harvest Greetings stamp set with my copic markers. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
I chose a sentiment from the set and cut it out with a large sentiment strip die. To create a little grassy ground, I inked up a white panel with two different green dye inks and my blending brush, then moved on to assembly.
For that I used EZ Squeeze Liquid Adhesive to adhere the grass to the embossed sky panel, then adhered that to a white card base. For the images, I added them all flat to the card with liquid adhesive except the scarecrow and sentiment banner that I popped up with foam squares.
Moving on to finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the scarecrow’s nose, cheeks, patch, shoes and buttons. Then I also added them to the stems and leaves of all the pumpkins and the crow’s beak.
We’re so excited to share this new release with you! You’re going to love it! Stay tuned during the rest of the week for more sneaks and inspiration from the design team. The release will be available on Friday!
Happy Friday my crafty friends! I hope you had a wonderful week and will be able to do what makes you happy this weekend! Today I’m over on the Pink & Main blog with a floral slimline card.
I thought these florals would be great for a slimline card with their long stems so I started by stamping both images from the You stamp set. I colored them with my copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Playing off the colors I used on the flowers, I chose inks close to the flower centers and blended them across a white panel and then again over the deco stencil. Then I used the smaller slimline shape from the Beautiful Slim Line die set to cut the panel out.
Next, I die cut a purple panel with the next-to-largest Layered Slim Line dies and moved on to assembling my card. First I used EZ Squeeze glue to adhere the purple panel to a white slimline card base. Then I popped the stenciled panel up with foam tape. Finally I used foam squares to pop up my flowers.
This latest release was packed full of wonderful sentiment sets so I looked through those and landed on one, which I heat embossed on black cardstock. I trimmed it into a strip and used foam to pop it up as well.
For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to all of the flower centers. Then after much hemming and hawing, I chose beautiful orange pearls to adhere all around my design from the Rainbow Pearls embellishment wheel.
I’m not a floral girl at all but I was quite happy with the way this turned out and had fun coloring these sweet images.
Happy Friday friends! Today I have a fun interactive card to share with you featuring the new Pink & Main stamp set called Sweet Greetings. The hummingbird images in this set are beautiful and so fun to color! Today I just couldn’t resist keeping the design simple and putting my hummingbird on an action wobbler. It just seemed too perfect!
I stamped and colored my images with copic markers, then used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Next, I inked up a panel with distress oxide inks in peacock feathers, blueprint sketch and seedless preserves. I spritzed the panel with water and trimmed it down to 4×4.25 inches.
Next, I used EZ Squeeze liquid adhesive to glue the panel to a white card base and then used my MISTI to stamp a sentiment in the white space at the bottom. I added foam tape to the back of the hummingbird feeder and placed it down, trimmed off the excess hanging over the side. Then I added my wobbler to the hummingbird and placed it so it’s beak is just over the feeder.
For finishing touches, I glued down a scattering of the pink and green pearls from the Unicorn Pearls embellishment pack. Then I came in with my Wink of Stella glitter brush pen on the hummingbird’s wings, face and the liquid inside the feeder.
I love how this set comes with a few flowers that you could use instead of the feeder for a totally different look too! Such a sweet stamp set with lots of fun possibilities.
Have you all checked out the most recent Pink & Main release yet? It’s got some different and really fabulous goodies in it! Today’s card is featuring a new set called Namaste. I love these sweet girls and the great sentiments that go with them!
For my card today, I chose 3 of the girls and colored them with my copics. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and played around with a final design layout. originally I was thinking of a landscape slimline but when I stacked them vertically I really liked it.
Next, I took a slimline size panel and inked the edges up with my blending brush and yellow dye ink. For a little interest I used the Circle Spotlights 1 stencil to add polka dot highlights to the areas I was going to pop the girls up on.
I chose my favorite sentiment from the Namaste set, stamped it and cut it out with the next-to-smallest Layered Slim Line die. Then I added foam squares to the back of the images and sentiment and popped them in place.
I used EZ Squeeze liquid adhesive to glue my panel down to a white slimline card base. Then for finishing touches I arranged a scattering of yellow gems from the Crystal Gems embellishment pack on my design.
Do you do yoga? I totally don’t but these cute girls make me want to try! Haha!
Happy Friday everyone! Today I have a super cute pair of cards over on the Pink & Main blog! The new release is live and available for purchase so don’t hesitate to head over and treat yourself! There are so absolutely amazing products added to the mix this month!
I couldn’t help myself so I took the same design idea and created two cards to share with you today. It actually started because I pulled out the woodgrain embossing folder and embossed the grain the wrong direction for my original design. I couldn’t let it go to waste so I decided it was a perfect opportunity to make two fun cards to share with you!
Like I said before, I used the new woodgrain embossing folder for my backgrounds. Because these are 6×6 you can take your A2 size cardstock and turn it portrait or landscape for different looks. I ended up with one of each. Then I took a white panel and ink blended distress oxide inks in blueprint sketch and mermaid lagoon. I spritzed the panel with water and die cut the letters from the new Just a Note dies and Big Hugs dies. Then I cut them from white 2 more times each and used EZ Squeeze glue to adhere them together. I die cut the shadow for each from pearlescent vellum and adhered those with tape runner.
Next, I stamped images from the July Stamp and Die of the Month – Just Ducky and colored them with my copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and decided on sentiments to go with each card. This die set comes with these awesome rounded banner dies that fit the sentiments in the set so I was able to die cut them perfectly too!
I adhered the woodgrain backgrounds to white card bases with EZ Squeeze glue. Then I added the ink blended sentiments to those. Next, I added foam squares to the back of the images and sentiment banners and popped those in place.
For finishing touches, I added yellow pearls from the new Rainbow Pearls embellishment wheel to both card designs. Then I came in with glossy accents on the ducky eyes, beaks and feet.
Aren’t these ducks just too cute for words?!? I love them and the different positions they are all in. So many options! The new word dies are an absolute must for any crafty stash! They are versatile and so fun to use! I’m swooning over the font too!!! It’s just perfect!
