Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Pink & Main Mermazing

Fancy meeting you here again! Today I’m over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog with this fun card and tag combo featuring the Mermazing Coffee stamps and dies from Pink & Main. Keep scrolling to check it all out!

I’ve been wanting to try embossing with a background die for a while and this card just seemed like the perfect scenario to try it out. I did some ink smooshing with my Tombow brush markers to create the bright fun background and then, using the embossing sandwich for my die cutter, embossed the panel with the Neat and Tangled snake scales coverplate die. I trimmed it down to 4×5.25 and set it aside to work on the rest of my card.

I stamped, colored and die cut my images from Mermazing Coffee, not totally sure what I was doing with my card. Then I decided to cut a vellum heart using the Trinity Stamps nested hearts and heat embossed my sentiment. I attached my mermaid with foam squares.

I decided to add some jute twine around the background panel for a little fishy texture and then adhered my heart over that. I finished my card off with some Wink of Stella glitter brush pen on the mermaid tail, Stickles on her cheeks and heart in her hair and finally a scattering of Nuvo Crystal Drops across the design.

But I still had an extra image I didn’t use…so I thought a fun coordinating tag was in order.

I die cut the tag pieces from Newton’s Nook’s Fancy Edges Tag die set and adhered them together. I stamped the sentiment from Mermazing Coffee and also some hearts from the set too. I popped the image up with foam squares and added a little Wink of Stella glitter brush pen here and there for some extra shimmer. Then I thought it needed more so I grabbed the glossy accents and added some of that to the mug on all the pink areas…and then finished it off with some teal twine I had in my stash.

I hope you enjoyed my little project today and found some inspiration to create something wonderful.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!

The Stamping Village – Pink & Main

Hello again! I’m back with another installment from my goal to use each holiday seal from The Stamping Village Holiday Seals stamp set. Today we’re going to use the Pink & Main seal to make a bright and colorful ornament card.

This is one of those cards that really shows how fun it can be to mix and match from different companies. We’ve got Doodlebug papers showcasing this fun Pink & Main holiday seal, with Lawn Fawn dies to turn it into a hanging ornament. Then, to finish it off, I added Trinity Stamps peppermint candy clay accents around the background.

There is so much going on in this card but it’s super fun and cheery and works so well together. I did add Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the red ring on the holiday seal and the bow for a little extra interest. I think it ties everything together with the silver glitter washi tape I added to the sides.

This card was super fun to put together and is a design you could easily change out the papers on and use the entire stamp set to make! How fun would it be to have the same overall design but a different seal on an entire set of 12 Christmas cards?!? Maybe a goal for next year. 😉

Have a wonderful weekend! I can’t believe it but it’s the last one before Halloween. Where has this year gone??? We’re headed to the pumpkin patch to soak up as much fall as we can!

As always, I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
