Merry & Bright

Pink & Main

December 15, 2019

Hello Friends! I hope you all are doing well and your Christmas prep is well underway. It is hard to believe that Christmas will be in 10 days!! I am stopping by today to share another Christmas card with you all on the Pink & Main Blog


My card today is definitely Merry & Bright! I began my card by using the Holiday Vertical Greetings Stamp Set and my MISTI. I placed my sentiment in my MISTI and just moved my card panel to the left or right until I had my sentiment across the whole panel. Every time I moved my card panel I would clean my stamp and change my color of ink, keeping my colors in rainbow order. The MISTI kept everything lined up perfectly and allowed me to make a continuous pattern without moving my stamp.


Next, I used the Holly Jolly Stamp Set and stamped the So Very Merry sentiment onto a banner with black ink. I then added this to my card panel with a little foam adhesive, keeping my overall card design fairly flat and easy to mail.


Thanks for joining me today. I hope I inspired you to create a Christmas card in nontraditional colors.
Enjoy your day,
Dana

Happy Little Holiday Critters!

December 14, 2019

Good Morning Friends! I am back today with another Christmas card that I created yesterday...yes I am still making Christmas cards. How about you? Are you all finished? I hope to use a few more stamp sets over the next few days before I put all of my Christmas supplies away. Today, my card is for the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge. This week the challenge was Happy Little Holiday Critters, so I pulled out Toboggan Together stamp and die set to create my card.


I began my card by using a Taylored Expressions Masking Stencil to create my ink blended rectangle. I used Distress Oxide Ink in Faded Jeans and then added a few snowflakes with the Pretty Pink Posh Snowflakes Stencil


Next, I stamped my images from the Toboggan Together Stamp Set and colored them with Copic markers. I then used the coordinating dies to cut them out. 


To finish my card I attached my white panel to a piece of green paper from the Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow Christmas paper pad. Lastly, I attached everything to an A2 card base.
Have a great weekend!!
Enjoy your day,
Dana

Warm Winter Greetings

Pretty Pink Posh

December 13, 2019

Good Morning Friends and Happy Friday! Another week is almost over...aak! Are you starting to panic? I am finished shopping and my wrapping is done, but I would just like to Enjoy the Days and Savor the Moments. The days just seem to fly by during this time of year. 
Today, I am sharing a fun Christmas card and a set of tags using lots of products from Pretty Pink Posh


I started my card by ink blending Distress Oxide Ink in Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock. I then used the Winter Frame Die to die cut the frame from my ink blended background. I love the detail on the this frame die, so pretty!


Next, I stamped my snowmen and scarves from the Happy Snowman Stamp Set. I then used the coordinating dies to die cut my images. This is a little stamp set, but So Cute!! The little snowman just makes me smile! To finish my card, I stamped my sentiment from the Holiday Greetings Stamp Set and added white embossing powder. 

For my tags, I used the Stitched Essentials 1 Tag Set. I die cut the tags from bright (nontraditional) Christmas colors. I used a hole punch and added an eyelet to the top of my tag for some added support. 


Next, I stamped my sentiment from the Holiday Signs Stamp Set on the bottom of my tags. Lastly, I attached my snowman with foam adhesive and tied a ribbon to the top. 


Are you a fan of bright Christmas colors? Or do you prefer more traditional reds and greens? I have been mixing it up a little bit this year... kind of fun!

Good Morning Friends! I am stopping by quickly today to share a Christmas card for Pink & Main.


My card was fairly quick to create. I created my background with strips of green cardstock. I mounted them directly onto my A2 card base.


I then used the Wreath Base Die to die cut my wreath from white cardstock. I mounted this onto my card panel and added a red bow from the Winter Wreath Decor Die Set.


Lastly, I added my sentiment from the Merry Christmas Die Set. I love the font from this die set, and there is also a shadow die included. *You can't beat the price either!!

Thanks for joining me today!
Enjoy your day,

Happy Hanukkah

Pretty Pink Posh

December 9, 2019

Good Morning Friends! I hope you all had a Wonderful weekend. Today, I am sharing a Hanukkah card for Pretty Pink Posh. This is such a beautiful stamp set and perfect for Hanukkah, which starts on December 22 this year. I was so glad when Paulina designed a Hanukkah stamp set this year...it is definitely something I needed. 

I started my card by stamping the Menorah from the Happy Hanukkah Stamp Set in a Copic friendly black ink. I then colored it with my Copic markers and used the Happy Hanukkah Coordinating Dies to cut it out. 

Next, I trimmed down a piece of vellum and stamped my sentiment from the Happy Hanukkah stamp set in VersaMark ink. I added Wow embossing glitter is Blue Glitz and used my heat gun to set it. I then used the Stacked Edges 1 Die Set to die cut my chevron strips from white cardstock. I attached those to the vellum panel and attached my Menorah on top. 

To finish my card, I mounted my vellum panel onto a piece of tone on tone snowflake patterned paper. Lastly, I attached everything to a navy card base.

Enjoy your day,
