Mr. and Mrs.

Hello all,

Well it’s wedding season and what better time to make this card. I used the adorable new set Ever After for the sentiments and images. I also used the planner set Weekend Banners. I first cut out the heart with a metal die and then I embossed with a heart folder. I used perfect pearls to add glimmer to the embossed hearts and for the brides veil and dress. I also used my Prismacolor colored pencils and gamsol for blending. 🙂

Colouring stamps – part 4


Distress inks, Distress markers, Distress crayons – all of them you know. All of them are super for colouring and all product are also great for stamping as well.

Distress inks – you can tap ink on acrylic block and than with special applicator (sorry I forget name it is plastic and it has got removable nibs) or with water brush you take colour straight from block and colour. You can colour with ink applicator over stamped image or straight tap ink over image. Distress product are water reactive and very popular.

Distress markers – great product for colouring and shading. I will not write about it, you know it well.

Distress crayons – new product for this year and I will show you one way how to use it. Another ways are straight colouring on stamp, or scribble little bit pigment on acrylic block and than take it with water brush or even you can scribble it on finger and than colour stamp with finger, really funny and relaxed way.

For my card I will use the new Pink and Main die – Hello dies. Here is short tutorial how to use Distress ink and Distress crayons.


The firs step is colour with ink applicator piece of paper and die cut sentiment Hello. It is better to colour paper than small sentiment. Working with Distress inks is really easy and I believe you know them well. I used crushed olive and forest moss inks.

distress - 1

Here is new Hello die, awesome detailed die! I used watercolour paper with structure.

distress - 2

I have at home all crayons, I love Distress product so this was must have for me 🙂 Colours are awesome and they are just something else as Gelatos or Prima oil pastels (I will write about them next time).

distress - 3

Scribble on structured paper crayons, I took three colours – Rusty hinge, Mustard seed and Spiced marmalade. On photo is less colour than I added more, because I wanted to have really rich background.

distress - 4

With finger or little bit dry baby wipe  move colour over whole paper. I recommend to use watercolour paper.

distress - 5

Place any of your favourite stencil over paper and with really wet baby wipe remove colour from places which you can see through stencil. Make it really gently because paper can be ruined.

distress - 6

Here is my soft background.

distress - 7

And finally I cut circle, added sentiment some sequins and I made circle shape card.

distress - 8

So with Distress product you can play a lot and it is really great medium for colouring.

Have a nice day

Good Morning Pink and Main Fans!

I am in South Carolina and the weather here is starting to turn steamy! I recently moved to SC from Southern California and I must say the humidity is really hard to get use too!! So I thought it would be fun to make a card with some cool treats.  I am hoping this will help with the hot days and nights but I don’t think so!! Hee Hee

I am using the set from our most recent new release called So Cool!  It has a wonderful selection of sweet treats, darling penguins and matching sentiments!PM0182_So_Cool_4x6_web__92815.1460676811.1280.1280Here is the card I made for you this week:

Hope to Sea You Soon

Happy Saturday, Pink & Main friends! It is a holiday weekend here in the states. Lots of BBQs and going to the beach. No beach visits for us, due to the weather here in Texas, but I believe we have 3 different cook outs happening this weekend!

Pink and Main’s Oh, Crab stamp set is perfect for the summer season!


 I found some fun summery prints and decided to create a scenery card. I placed the prints together and decided to stamp and color in the image. As I attached the crab to the card, I saw that it looked like the ball was drifting away in the water. The sentiment “hope to sea you soon” fits perfectly!

So Cool!

Hi Everyone!! DT Kimberly here today sharing a new card featuring the new So Cool stamp set from the May release. I used used some distress inks for a colorful splatter background with some pearlescent shimmer.

PM May Penguin

I stamped one of the three penguins in the set and colored with copic markers, then added some wink of stella and glossy accents to mimic a popsicle. The sentiment is heat embossed in white on blue cardstock. I added some silver glitter washi tape to the side of the card for more shimmer and finished the card off with some sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
