Pink and Main Giveaway Hop

Hello my friends! I am back as part of a video hop showcasing the fabulous Pink & Main. On the hop you will find some awesome inspiration and have yourself a chance to win a $25.00 Pink and Main gift card. Check out this quick card tutorial over on my Youtube Channel. Written instructions listed below.

To begin

I started with some Classic Linen White Pearl Cardstock from cutcardstock.com

I used a silicone baking mat I picked up from Hobby Lobby to emboss the mandala stencil from Pink & Main onto the white pearl cardstock.

To achieve the embossing with your stencils

  • Start with your base plate from your die cutting machine and 1 cutting pad.
  • Then, place your silicone mat on the cutting pad.
  • Next, place your cardstock on top of the silicone mat.
  • And finally, place your stencil on the cardstock and place your second cutting pad on top and then roll through your die cutting machine.

And wa-lah, beautifully embossed stencil on this classic linen white pearl cardstock.

Next, I used some prima marketing metallic watercolors to splatter some black and gold paint to give it some additional interest and set aside to dry.

The little things

For the sentiments, I used the Celebrate Stamp set and coordinating die.

For the celebrate die; I cut that three times out of black cardstock and layered that together with some liquid glue and then painted the black metallic watercolor paint over top to give this really pretty charcoal look.

While the celebrate die cut dried. I stamped the phrase “the little things” and “everyday” from the coordinating celebrate stamp set with some Stazon Pigment Piano Black ink. The little things sentiment I made a simple slant banner strip to go under the word celebrate and everyday was stamped on the inside of my card base.

To put it all together I layered the classic linen white pearl cardstock onto a piece of black cardstock to give a small black border and then adhered that to a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 top folding card base. I lined the word celebrate up on to the front of the card panel and adhered that with some liquid glue. I then place the little things banner coming from the right just under the celebrate.

That wraps it up for me today guys. Thank you so much for joining me. I hope you have a fantastic day and I will catch you next time.




Spellbinders Glimmer hot foil system

Hello Crafty Friends! Today I have a brand new video featuring the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot foil System using the Sizzix Big Shot die cutting machine. In the video I talk about some issues that I was having and therefore on the verge of returning the glimmer system. Because I took some time to play around and get a good grasp of this machine I have fallen in love with the beautiful foiling it creates. Check out the video below to see what I did to overcome my foiling adversity. Click the image below to start the video!

These are some close up images of my foiling journey

The black card is Strathmore Mixed Media and the red is from the heavy weight paper pack from Hobby Lobby
Some examples of vellum, the tag shape is Simon Says Stamp and the others are pieces of 48 lb vellum purchased from Hobby Lobby
The white card stock is Gina K white layering card and the black is from a Neenah 65 lb cover paper pack
Here we have sea glass from Simon Says Stamp and In the navy from Gina K. The white card stock is Simons 120 lb card which works wonderfully as well. The Merry and Bright is using Neenah 65 lb card stock paper pack
Here are the swatches I created using acetate. Sorry for the glare…

Thank you so much for stopping by today and checking out my video and blog. I do hope you found some value and are able to better work with your Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System no matter which die cutting machine you have. Happy Crafting!
