Sneak Peek – Sketched Easter

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday!

Ilina here! Today I am sharing a little sneak peek from the new release coming out on the 20th. I am sharing a card using the new Sketched Easter set full of oh so sweet images!!!

This lamb is so adorable, but there are other adorable images in the set, like a bunny, a deer etc.

To make my card I started by stamping the imaged onto white card stock using alcohol marker friendly black ink, then I colored the images and die cut.


I cut a panel from white card stock measuring 3 3/4″ x 5 1/2″. I masked portion of it and ink blended some aqua ink, next I masked the inked area, and blended some green ink to create grass and sky. Stamped the sentiment in Black ink, then adhered the images and some Rose Gold Glossy dots. Then adhered the panel onto Aqua card base.

Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a creative day!

Spring Wreath

Spring is on it’s way!  It may not feel that way outside yet, but the new Pink & Main February Release is filled with pretty things for Spring and Easter — and the release is on it’s way to the store on the 20th!

For my first project, I cut a pattern from the Sunrise Paper Pad with one of the Stitched Rectangles Set 2 Dies and adhered to the cardbase. The new Spring Wreath Icons set coordinates with the  Wreath Base Dies and contains so many adorable shapes – perfect for an Easter wreath!  The sentiment is from another new set: Sketched Easter.

Next, I created little 3×3 gift cards using the Spring Wreath Icon dies and papers from the Sunrise and Beach Babe Paper Pads. 

Hope you’ll follow us via email/blog, Facebook and/or Instagram so you won’t miss any projects the design team shares…not to mention, you’ll be among the first to hear about deals and specials!

Pretty Jars

Hello friends. It’s Donna here, with a sneak peek for you. I have had such a lovely time playing with the Pretty Jars stamp set. The images are so whimsical.

I decided to pair the flower image to some of the lovely Watercolor Foil paper, so the first thing I did was to choose watercolour markers to suit the paper of my choice, which was the beautiful purple stripe.

I stamped the images onto watercolour paper in clear embossing ink, and heat embossed them in white. I didn’t do any masking, as the jar would be transparent.

I coloured the image with a range of watercolour markers – three different brands- from my stash. I coloured the jar in three layers. Firstly a very pale wash over the whole jar, right to the top, then a deeper shade of blue for the water, and finally some green for the water, covering the left side of the water. I used lots of water, and let the paint ‘bloom’ for a watery look.

The sentiment is from the same Pretty Jars stamp set, and I finished the card off with some pale sequins.

I love the soft look of the overall card, and will be using this set again in the very near future!

I hope this has inspired you to break out the watercolours, and create cards of your own.

Until next time, may your days be full of flowers.

Blessings,

Donna

Sneak Peek at Sketched Easter!!

Hello, my friends and welcome!! I’m SO EXCITED to be sharing a sneak peek of one of the upcoming new stamp sets!! This month’s release is at the top of my favourites list (so far), and I know you’re going to love it as well!

The set is called Sketched Easter and it is adorable! As the name suggests, the images are drawn in a sketchy fashion which is absolutely charming!

What you see here is only a few of the images in this set! To create this little scene, I used the Puffy Heart Stencil and a light pink ink to add a very light background. To ground that adorable bunny, I decided to use one of the Lacy Border Dies which I inked with a light teal ink.

After adhering all the images, I stamped the “Happy Easter” sentiment in black ink. This is where I decided to add a few easter eggs. These little dies come from the Spring Wreath Decor Dies which are also new this month!!

To finish this card off, I added some Glossy Accents to a few areas as well as a Silver Glossy Heart and a couple Glossy Dots in Silver…love those things!!

I hope you enjoyed my sneak peek!! Stay tuned for tons more inspiration from the DT using this release….you are going to adore it!!

Thanks for stopping by. See you soon!!

Sneak Peek – Feb Release

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with a sneak peek for Pink and Main’s new February release. My card today actually uses two new sets and one older one but the new ones are releasing on February 20. Get excited.

To start off, I used the Eyelet Cover die to dry emboss onto white cardstock. For my A2 panel, I decided to trim it down a quarter of an inch on the top and side. I love how I can use this background die to either cut or emboss. It adds really pretty texture for a subtle background. I wanted the main focus to be the stamp images.

I stamped out one of the bouquets from the new Sweet Bouquet stamp set. Isn’t it really pretty? I also decided to pair this bouquet with the new Pretty Jars stamp set so the flowers weren’t floating on the card. For the jar, I wanted to manipulate it a little bit by using an Exacto knife to cut a slit in the jar so I could insert the flowers. You can’t really tell from the photos but I added masking tape over the jar so it gave the shininess of a real jar.

In the Pretty Jars stamp and die set, it includes a die for a banner and the sentiments in the set fit perfectly. It’s such a simple card but the background die gives the card subtle interest while allowing the main stamped images to stand out.

Continue to stop by Pink and Main’s blog this week to see more inspiration from the design team.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the sneak peeks. Come back again soon for some more inspiration and ideas!
