Have an open heart card by Kate

Hi,

today I have for card full of hearts. It is very simple card where you can use any of your watercolour medium.

For background I used white card stock and embossing folder with hearts. Than I die cut 2 different sizes of Double Stitched Heart Dies from watercolour paper. Do not use any thin paper or card stock, really when you are using watercolours or watercolour pencils or markers – always use good quality watercolour paper. So I painted my hearts with Winsor Newton watercolours (my favourine ones).

Firstly I wanted to make just red pink combination but than I decided why not to use more colours for my hearts. I glued prepared hearts on card and I added 2 lovely sentiment stickers. I used 2 sentiments because card has got quite heavy background.

Have a nice day

Together Forever!

Hello Pink and Main Friends!

It is Pam M. crafting with you today!

I needed a Valentine card with a more masculine feel for my hubby so this is what I came up with!The card features our new Double Stitched Heart dies and our word die Together.  It also has a matching Together Forever stamp set.

Design Steps:

  1. Use an A2 white card base and cut a slightly smaller piece of DP from the 6 x 6 My Heart paper pad.  Use the second from the largest Double Stitched Heart Die and center it onto the DP and cut. Save the heart to glue on the inside of the card
  2. Add the ribbon and glue the DP to the front of the card
  3. Use a piece of coordinating colored card stock and cut out the solid colored hearts using the Double Stitched Heart dies.  Run the two smaller hearts through an embossing folder
  4. Glue the large card stock heart to the opening in the center of the DP and position the two smaller ones as shown
  5. Using black card stock cut out the Arrow using the Directional Border die set.  Cut the arrow in half and tuck it under the large heart as shown
  6. Using black card stock cut out the Together 3 times and glue them to one another.  Glue to the card as shown
  7. Stamp the sentiment using the Together Forever stamp set onto black card stock and emboss in white then add the dove tail.  Glue to the card
  8. Add the black sequins and your card is complete

Genie Girl!

Hello! Mindy here with a  card to share featuring Genie Girl! There are quite a few stamps on this set and a coordinating die set too!!
Unfortunately, I was playing around and didn’t write down my recipe for the entire card but I will have the Pink & Main release listed below.
I stamped my image onto Neenah White cardstock and cut out with the coordinating die. For the background, I blended some Distress Inks onto Bristol Smooth cardstock. I splattered it with water for the droplets look. Then, I used some a white pigment ink pad with a blending tool. I dabbed some ink onto the tool, tapped off the paper a little and then on my background piece I did a twisting motion to get those circle marks. I was going for a bokeh effect.
I ran my background through the diecut machine with the stitched rectangle die. Before actually attaching to the card, I stamped my sentiment onto the background with Versafine ink.
Then I added my Genie girl with some foam squares.

True Love card by Pam Pease

Hello P&M fans,

I’m back again today sharing a card I made using the new adorable hedgehugs stamp set from Pink and Main. As always, a complete list of products used is at the bottom of this post.

I kept this one fairly simple, white card base and no pattern paper. Sometimes its nice to just create a simple cute card without a lot of fuss. I used our amazing inks for the blue background and a white piece of card stock cut using our stitched rectangle dies. Those cute butterfly sequins you see are only available through Pink and Main’s stamp shows. Make sure you keep an eye out for them to be in your area.

I colored using my trusty prismacolor pencils and gamsol. The die cut “love” is one of Pink and Mains amazing word dies. I just snipped off the little swoosh at the end to make it a bit simpler and so I could fit the word “true” close to it.  Hope you enjoy the latest release! 🙂
