Pumpkin Spice, Thankful Mice card

Hi Everyone!
Kimberly from Kimberly’s Crafty Spot.
Today I am sharing a project for Pink and Main stamps and dies.(This blog post contains affiliate links. Compensated affiliate links used when possible at no extra cost to you. I just receive a small portion of the sales through your purchase. So Thank You!!)

I’m sad to say that this will be my last post as a Pink and Main Design Team member. I started a new full time job in August as a Middle School classroom monitor and I just don’t have the extra time right now but I have really enjoyed the privilege of being part of the team.

Now onto my card, I used the new Autumn Blessings stamp set along with the coordinating Autumn Blessings die and Pumpkin Spice 6×6 paper pad.
I started with a dark brown card base, I die cut a cream colored panel with the Stitched Rounded Squares die and stamped the cute boy and girl mice and sentiment “When I count my Blessings I count you twice” all in brown ink. Next, I copic colored the mice and paper pieced the apron and cuffs of the girl mouse. I also stamped, colored and die cut the pie from the set for them to hold. To the card base, I added a panel of patterned paper from the 6×6 pad and also some orange patterned paper that is die cut from the Scalloped Border die and added to the bottom of the first panel. Next, I stamped the “Happy Thanksgiving” sentiment in brown ink to another strip of orange patterned paper and added it to the bottom after I put some coordinating twine on it. I also added a hand cut flag banner to the top left of the card also decorated with some twine.

Happy Thanksgiving Scarecrows

Hi, Crafty Friends! DT Member Mitsyana here to bring you another adorable project. I am so glad that the summer heat is starting to die down. It hasn’t gone down that much here in Texas and we still have weather in the low to mid 90’s but that is far cooler than the 110+ temps that we’ve had all summer.

I am sooooo looking forward to the cooler fall weather! So to celebrate the drop in temps I decided to make this Thanksgiving Scarecrow Card.

Pink & Main Supplies Used

Pumpkin Spice 6×6 Paper Pad

Take Flight 6×6 Paper Pad

 

I start by stamping my images, from the Scarecrows stamp set, onto mixed media paper with an archival black ink. I colored my images with water based markers and blended the colors with a water brush. Then used the matching Scarecrows Dies to die cut my images out.

I made a 6×6 card using the brown plaid paper from Pink and Main’s Pumpkin Spice and the blue cloud patterned paper from the Take Flight paper pad.

Paper Measurements

Brown Plaid: 6″ x 6″

Black Cardstock: 5-5/8″x  5-5/8″

Cloud Pattern: 5-1/2″ x 5-1/2″

Green Strip: 1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″

I added a little barn I pieced together onto the card front, then layered my colored images over top. I used foam tape behind a few of the images for a little bit of dimension.

Here are a couple close-ups of my card…

I hope this gives you all a wonderful start to this upcoming fall season!

Until next time, friends!

Hey Ghoulfriend!

Hi Pink and Main Fans!

I just can’t resist the new Spooktacular stamp set!  I love all the fun Halloween images and sentiments!

I used a black card base with layers of purple and designer paper.  I added a strip of purple designer paper layered on black.  Next add the ribbon and cheese cloth for some texture.  The image is colored with copic markers and layered on top of the Pink and Main stitched circle die.
