Party Balloons Sneak Peek

Hi, everyone! It’s Lynnea! We’re coming up on another new release from Pink & Main! Mark your calendars for Wednesday the 20th! This release is awesome for building up your stash of birthday cards – which is something I’ve been trying to do this year!

I started this card by grabbing one of my favorite stencils from Pink & Main – the Herringbone stencil – and blending on a light gray ink.

I stamped a bunch of balloons using the new Party Balloons stamp set. I love that this stamp set has 4 different balloons as well as layering images to give a bunch of variety! I also stamped the balloon strings and used the coordinating dies to cut out all of my images.

I cut a black piece of cardstock using a stitched rectangle from the Stitched Rectangles 2 Die set and stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment onto it and covered it with Wink of Stella glitter. I arranged my balloons and strings and let them hang off the top and the sides. And that’s it! I love how easy it is to create perfect birthday balloons using this stamp set! Make sure you check out this stamp set and the rest of the new release on March 20th!


March Sneak Peek…

Happy Monday, Annette Allen here with you today and welcome to Sneak Peek week. The March release is the 20th of March YAY. Today I am sharing a card that I created using the new Pink & Main: It’s A Party paper pad, Bee Day stamp and matching die set and Pull and Flip die set.

I created the background using the present die from the Pull and Flip die set and It’s A Party paper pad. I thought it would be a fun background. I colored up this cutie from Bee Day stamp set and then die cut with the matching die. I stamped the sentiment on a separate piece of card-stock and used my cutter to cut it out. Totally simple card to create.

The background was a little time consuming but well worth it.. don’t you think?

Thanks for stopping by.


March Release Sneak Peek: Happy Birthday

Hi everyone,

Ilina here! Today I am sharing a sneak peek of couple stamp sets that will be released on the 20th. I used Party Balloons and coordinating and Birthday Script set and coordinating dies.

To make the card I started by stamping the balloons in yellow, pink and teal. Once stamped I stamped the second layer with Versamark ink and embossed in white, die cut them and set them aside.

Next I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment in yellow, die cut, and die cut the frame. Adhered them together.

To assemble the card I started with a panel of white card stock measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhered the sentiment then arranged the balloons. Then using fun foam adhered it to a top folding note card.

Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you are having a creative day!


Flippin’ Over Your Birthday

We’re flippin over the new Pink & Main March Release – coming March 20th!  There is so much to celebrate!!

My project today features the new Birthday Tag dies.  This little tag is packed with little surprises for the recipient.  The tag is super simple to put together. 

After cutting out the tag, fold on the pre-scored sections at the bottom of the tag.  This creates ‘steps’.  On each ‘step’, place a die cut square with scallop square layer then use one of several dies included in this die set to cut images and words.  There are tabs at the top which are placed behind the tab and adhered to a base.  Now, when the tab at the top of the tag is pulled, each of the squares flip over revealing the next square.

I’ve also used several fun patterns from the new It’s A Party paper pad!

These new products will be available on March 20th during our big birthday celebration and blog hop!


March Sneak Peek – Party Balloons

Pink and Main’s 5th birthday is so close!

We’re getting ready to celebrate in style, but in the meantime I have a sneak peek of a fabulous new stamp set that I know will be very popular.

It’s Donna here, and I’m very excited about the new release. Japanese customs are also apparently very excited about the release because they’re holding part of it as we speak, presumably to play with all the lovely goodies!

But, when you have the Party Balloons set, you can party plenty hard without the other products! I have a card for you that captures the bright happy vibe of the stamp set.

This balloon set has both clear and patterned stamps, so you can decorate your balloons, or not, depending on what style of card you want to make. I think this makes it very versatile.

I chose (almost) primary colours for my trio of balloons, and used three of the four balloons that come in the set. Depending on what colour the balloon was, I sometimes found it easier to stamp the pattern first, and then the balloon on top, particularly for lighter colours. (In secret confessions, I have tens of these balloons stamped out – once I started, I couldn’t stop!) I used the matching dies to cut out each balloon, then added a small bow to each balloon with crochet thread. I mounted each balloon with foam tape.

The background panel for this card was cut using the Stitched Rectangles set 1. I then used the Cloud Stencil to lightly blend on a cloudy sky.

The sentiment is stamped very simply in black Versafine ink, and mounted on teal card to match the rest of the card. Finally, to construct the card, I used more of the same thread, and ran three strings down to the bottom of the main panel. I tucked the ends in underneath and stuck them there with washi tape. I love how this card is fun, but not too busy. Also, it is quick to construct (and I have all those balloons to use…), and suitable for any age or stage of life – it’s a real all rounder.

I trust that this post has you excited for the new release. I know you’re going to love it as much as I do, and find it so useful to have in your stash.

Until next time, may your days be sunny (and crafty)
