Mery & Bright

Happy Saturday, Pink & Main friends! It is raining day here in Texas. We are super glad that we got our holiday decorations up last weekend!

With holiday decorations on the mind, I thought it would be perfect to work with the Merry & Bright stamp set:

I stamped the adorable image onto white cardstock and colored in with Chameleon markers. The image is then cut out using the coordinating dies. The background of the card is created with the holly stamps from the Merry & Bright and Santa Mail stamp sets. The sentiment is stamped and embossed in white on a black strip. A very simple card to recreate!

Thank you for stopping and have a great day!

We decided to switch it up a bit for this month. There is no official stamp release this month, however, Joy Clair did release a super cute coffee stamp set, Coffee Lover.

This month, the design team members are working with some of their favorite stamp sets.  You should be arriving from LeeAnn's blog.If you are stopping by my blog and would like to start at the beginning, please stop by the Joy Clair blog.

Today I am showing off the Color by Faith's A Child is Born:

I decided to use this stamp set for illustrating Isaiah's announcing the future birth of Jesus. I wanted to make the image appear like it is like a vision or dream. So I drew the dream bubble with the stamped image inside. The pregnant woman is colored in with color pencils. The verse is completed with a variety of alpha/word stickers.

Sunny Studio - Mug Hugs

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! It is Jessi here. My husband surprised me with a trip to Colorado last week and I got to stick my hand in some snow! So coming back to reality and 80+ degrees, I found myself dreaming of a hot cup of chocolate back in snowy Colorado!

I decided to cave into the cravings with the adorable Sunny Studio's Mug Hugs stamp set:

I started with a solid white cardstock and stamped the mug images all over the card. To cover in some of the empty spaces, I stamped a snowflake image and the tiny heart image also included in the Mug Hugs stamp set.

I wanted the card to remain simple. However, I wanted to add some color to the card. I used the Red Zig Clean Color marker to color in the hearts. I used the Stella Wink - Clear to add the glittery sparkle to the snowflakes and the top of the heart. The sentiment phrases were stamped onto the front of each mug.

Please stop by the MarkerPOP blog for the list of supplies used to create this card.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!


DCWV & Eileen Hull Blog Hop

Hello, friends! I am joining the DCWV and Eileen Hull blog hop today. You can see the design team members' projects on the DCWV blog and the Eileen Hull blog.

Today, I used the Eileen Hull Twist & Style tool and the DCWV Cranberry Christmas stack to create some simple tree ornaments.

To begin the project, I used a star shape die and cut two of each print. I covered one star with adhesive on the back side of the paper.  I attached some of the twisted wire in a hoop shape. I attached the second star to create the ornament.

A stitched circle die cut is attached to the front of the star.

To finish the ornament, I used die cut words and attached on top of the circle. Such an easy ornament to recreate!

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!

Welcome Little One - girl

Hello, Pink & Main friends! I love making baby cards, but don't have the opportunity to make them too often. I recently found out that I will be an aunt again and am excited to hold that baby in my arms. But sadly, I have to wait a few more months!

Today's project uses an older Pink & Main set, Little Ones. In the November Release, the coordinating dies for Little Ones were included.

To create this square card, I used the new Stitched Rounded square dies. I also used the same dies to create the frame. The elephant image from Little Ones is stamped and colored on white cardstock. The image is cut out using the coordinating dies. For the sentiment, I used the fancy frame die from the Little Ones collection and stamped 'Welcome' on it. The rest of the sentiment is stamped onto the frame.

The elephant image can be used on a boy card, by replacing the pinks with blues!

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great one!

Donut Birthday - Neat & Tangled

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! Have you ever had donuts instead of cake for your birthday? I haven't! But I think I need to change that on my next birthday. All these pictures of donut cakes are making me want one!

Today, I am working with the Neat & Tangled's Say Yes to Donut stamp set. I paired up the stamps with the Simple Stories So Fancy 6x6 paper pad:

The donut image is stamped onto white cardstock. The image is colored in with a variety of Chameleon markers. The image is cut out using a stitched circle die. I used a couple of different prints from the paper pad to finish the card. The floral print is used to cover the front of the card. The purple print is cut with a stitched rectangle die. The sentiment is stamped onto a yellow print and attached to towards the bottom part of the purple. The circle die is attached towards the top.

The stamped image is stamped in black ink. This made the sprinkles black. I covered the black part with a white gel pen to turn the sprinkles to white.

Please stop by the MarkerPOP blog for the list of markers and supplies I used to create this card.

Thank you for stopping by today! Hope you have a great one!

DCWV Merry Christmas

Hello, DCWV friends! Are you ready for the holidays? They are right around the corner!!! Have you decorated yet? I know that some people decorate before Thanksgiving, but I am one that waits until the next day.

Today I using the new DCWV All About Christmas stack:

This stack is full of awesome prints! I wanted to make a CAS card that highlighted one of the prints.

I paired this card up with some DCWV foil cardstock and cut out some ornaments using a die cut machine. The ornaments are hanging with strings of twine. A few stars are added around the card for extra embellishments.

The sentiment is stamped onto a printed pendant. This fun print is also in the stack. The sentiment is stamped in grey and black to help it POP.

Thank you for stopping by today! Hope you have a wonderful day!

Hang in There Scene

Happy Saturday, Pink & Main friends! We are getting our first taste of winter here in Texas. Perfect weather for the upcoming holiday!

Did you see the new Pink & Main November release? One word---ADORABLE! Sloths are so popular right now! Who saw Zootopia? Flash the Sloth was my favorite character!

For today's project, I am pairing up the Sloth stamp set with the oversized Stitched Oval dies.

I wanted to create a scene using a sloth image. I stamped the image and colored with a variety of markers. The image is cut out with the coordinating Sloth dies. I wanted the scene to look like the sloth was hanging out in a tree. I used some leaves and branches diecuts to create the background of the scene. The sloth image is attached on top of the scene. The simple sentiment is stamped towards the bottom of the card.

We would love to see you Pink & Main creations! Join the Pink & Main Facebook gallery and upload your projects!
