Two Fiesta Cards by Pam Pease

Hello!

I hope everyone is enjoying Pink and Main's newest releases. I sharing here and on Pink and Main's blog, two cards using the Fiesta stamp set. Oh my goodness, how freaking cute are these stamps! I mean the mustache alone! I kept these fairly simple to show that you don't need fancy and complicated to create cute cards. Details are below, including a list of products used.

My Process
I created a standard A2 card using black 110lb paper. The patterned papers where layered underneath the white panels.  I used our newest Cloudy Frames dies (black) to make the images pop. The largest frame was used on the "taco" card and the second largest on the "hot" card. I did use a technique called "mirrored stamping". This allowed me to have the stamps facing each other even though I only had the one stamp.  YouTube was great in learning this technique. It helped to watch the step-by-step process. All of my coloring was with colored pencils.

Welcome to the Neighborhood DT Card for Pink and Main Stamps

Hello there,
Hope everyone is doing well and gearing up for warmer weather! I know I am soooo ready! Today, I wanted to share my Design Team project for Pink and Main stamps using some of their adorable new release products. I am absolutely in love with this set. Well with the new release in general. There are some amazing images! This is just one of many future cards I have planned. I kept this one fairly simple. Details are below, including a list of products used.

My Process
I created a standard A2 card using navy card stock. Layered a slightly smaller paper polka dot paper. Cut the largest frame out of white card stock, using Pink and Main's newest Cloudy Frames dies. I popped the frame up with foam tape. Colored the scene with Copics, masked the houses and colored in the grass and sky. I die cut out some trees and the lamppost for a little dimension and stamped the sentiment.

So Proud of You Banner Card for Pink and Main Stamps

Hello there!

Just dropping in to share my DT project this week for Pink and Main Stamps. I choose to ignore the forecast this week by creating a fun summer-ish card. This one is for my dad who just had bypass surgery last week. He is hanging in there and doing really well considering. He just happens to love the color aqua and flamingos! I have pictures below to explain how I made the banner die into a card. I hope this helps if you want to give this a try too.







  1. I lined up the die leaving the edge, I didn't want to cut out, off the cutting pad. When you run it through the die cut machine will not cut the area off the pad. 2. You can see that it didn't cut that area. 3. I moved the die down, flipped it around, and lined it up with my previous cut line, this time leaving that edge off the cut mat. 4. There is a small area between the cutting marks that I used an craft knife and a ruler to cut. Then I fold it in half and have a banner fold card!
