Rose Gold Sympathy Card

Rose Gold Sympathy Card by Annie Williams - Main

Hello again Pink & Main fans!  It’s Annie, and sadly, this will be my last post on the Pink & Main blog as I step down from the design team to concentrate on my family and other crafty pursuits.  Today, I wanted to share a card I made using one of the beautiful scripty sentiment stamp sets, “So Sorry” combined with the “Florals” set.  It’s never easy for me to make sympathy cards, but it becomes a little easier when I think about how the handmade gift might ease some of the recipient’s suffering.

After stamping the large “sorry” in the center of my card front in Versamark ink, I added rose gold embossing powder and melted it with my heat tool.  Then I just stamped a crazy jungle of flowers and leaves from the “Florals” set in a pretty color palette, sliced a strip out of each corner for a little something different, and popped the whole piece up over some rose gold foil cardstock.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my Pink & Main projects over the past year and a half as much as I have enjoyed sharing them with you!  I invite you to stop by my blog any time, “Lab Hands“, for additional handmade card, gift, and home decor projects.  I’ll forever be a huge Pink & Main fan, so you can be sure that I will be sharing more P&M projects in the future too!

Fun with Pandas


sometimes is great to take little older stamp set and use it again. One of my favourite stamp set is Pandamonium. For today I prepared 2 cards with funny pandas. I used dies – Stitched Rounded Rectangle Dies and I made something like small windows and with 3D glue dots I prepared base for my card under windows is just green paper, than I stamped pandas and cut them with scissors and also bamboo trees,  I put all prepared images into windows. Sentiment is from Hummingbirds stamp set.

Good Morning!

I really hope you will have a lovely Sunday. Sundays for me are a day of rest and going to church in the morning. I am showing you a card today that I used one of Pink and Main’s wonderful word dies.  I use my word dies more that any other dies I own! I CASed a sketch from a card I saw in a SU card set. Here is the result:


Design Steps:

  1. A2 white card base cut a slightly smaller piece of pink polka dot paper (Recollections) and glue to the card front
  2. Cut a 3 3/4 x 5 piece of grey paper (Recollections) and run through an embossing folder and attach to the pink paper
  3. Glue a doily (I cut mine with the Cricut) to the grey as shown slightly lower then center
  4. Add a strip of purple polka dot paper (Recollections) as shown
  5. Cut a metallic and purple polka dot banner and glue down as shown
  6. Die cut the hugs (Pink and Main) pop dot to card add sequins and heart with twine

Hello Sunshine

Happy Saturday, Pink & Main friends! Who loves summer? Me personally…not my favorite! It is WAY to hot and sticky here in Texas. However, I do love the summer treats! Ice cream and snowcones are my favorite! So I fell in love with the new Pink & Main’s So Cool stamp set!

I have been craving a snowcone lately, so I was inspired to use this set and here is the creation that I came up with:

I stamped the penguin image onto white cardstock and colored in the snowcone with a light pink marker. I used a darker pink and speckled the top of the cone. I felt it needed a little more, so I added some speckles of white gel pen ink. The image is cut out and set aside. I used the Pink & Main’s Stitched Rounded Rectangle Dies and Scallop Waves Dies to create the scene background. I added a few cloud diecuts and a sun diecut (from the Warm Holidays Coordinating Dies). For the sentiment, I used the word die ‘hello’ in two colors and attached slightly offline. To finish the sentiment, I stamped ‘sunshine’ on the bottom right corner.

Hi Everyone! DT Kimberly here to share a card using the new Sunny Hello stamp set and the Stitched Rounded Rectangles die.

PM June Sunshine card

I made a sunburst pattern for the background using some patterned paper and some embossed paper with glitter. That panel is die cut with the Stitched Rounded Rectangles die and added to a light teal card base. I stamped and colored the glasses and sentiment then colored the fun scene with copic markers and added some glitter and glossy accents.

I also used the smaller image from the set to decorate the inside of the card.
