Appreciation - Pink and Main

Good Morning Pink and Main Fans!

I am just loving using the warm colors of fall!  I also love to mix patterns especially using the Pink and Main Pumpkin Spice paper pad.

Design steps:
  1. Use a vanilla A2 card base and select 2 pieces of designer paper from the Pink and Main Pumpkin Spice paper pad. Die cut the 2 pieces of designer paper and one piece of vanilla card stock using the Pink and Main Stitched Rounded Rectangle die set.  Glue the three pieces to the card front as shown
  2. Stamp the bouquet of flowers using the Pink and Main Fall Bouquets stamp set.  Color with copic markers. Use coordinating dies to cut out the flowers and pop it to the card using dimensionals
  3. Use the adorable Pink and Main Small Bow die cut and Rinea foil to make the bow.  Glue dot the bow just below the flowers
  4. Use Pink and Main Thanks die and cut out of dark brown card stock.  
  5. Stamp in dark brown ink the sentiment from the Pink and Main Thanks to You stamp set and layer onto dark brown.

Santa is Coming - Scrapping Cottage

Hi Scrapping Cottage Friends

Before I get started I wanted to share with you that tomorrow and Saturday we will be having a video blog hop!! Six talented YouTube crafters will be showing off their interpretations of some of the new holiday release dies during the hop.  The sneak peeks are amazing featuring some beautiful projects!  Please check out Janet's post to get all of the details!!

Now on to today's project, I am making my Christmas cards and this one is going to someone very special!  I just love this Santa peeking out the window!

Designer Steps:

 1.  Cut the pieces using the Window With Shutters and Window Christmas Friends dies.  I used red, green, white, brown and white card stock for all of the pieces.
 2.  Color and shade the pieces with Copic markers.  Add small rhinestones for the eyes and the centers of the poinsettias
 3.  Glue all the pieces together and add a small piece of yellow DP behind the window
 4.  Use an A2 white card base and glue a slightly smaller piece of DP with snowflakes on the card base.  Pop dot the window and sentiment to the front of the card

I hope you are inspired by all the new dies in our Store!

Spooky Shine! - Pink and Main - Rinea

Hello Pink and Main Friends!!

It is DT Member Pam M. sharing with you today!

And welcome to Day 5 and our final day of our Rinea and Pink & Main collaboration!!
All week long we have been featuring some amazing projects from our talented Design Team Members using both Rinea and Pink & Main products. And it is almost time to choose a random winner for the $25 Gift Certificate to the Pink and Main Store. All you have to do to enter to win is stop by our blogs each day this week and leave a wonderful comment on the featured post!! So simple how could you go wrong!

For my project today, I created this card...
 Design Steps:

  1. Use an A2 black card base and cut a slightly smaller piece of black checked paper from the Not to Spooky paper pad.  
  2. Cut a piece of Rinea Cooper foil paper 4 x 5 1/4.  Run it through the embossing machine using a spider web folder.  The Rinea foil embosses so beautifully!!
  3. Ink the Rinea cooper foil paper with Versa Mark in random places.  Use black embossing powder and brush off any powder in place you do not want embossed. Heat set but make sure you heat up the gun before coming to the foil and then move quickly over the foil.  It embosses great!
  4. Stamp your spiders using Pink and Main Spooktacular Stamp Set.  Cut them out using the coordinating dies.  Use black and white twine and attach them to the back of the foil layer
  5. Layer the foil onto black card stock and mount to the card front using dimension tape
  6. Stamp the Mummy using the Spooktacular Stamp Set and color with Copic markers. Cut him out using the coordinating dies
  7. Cut out a Stitched Circle using the Pink and Main dies and Pink and Main Paper Pad Not to Spooky.  Pop dot the circle to the front of the card as shown.  Next add the mummy
  8. Stamp the sentiment and layer onto black card stock. Pop dot to the card front as shown


I hope you have been inspired by all of the projects our Pink and Main team showed you! We loved working with the Rinea foils they are just amazing products!
