Mermaid Slimline Card - Pink and Main

Under the Sea Cards

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing three under the sea cards that I made using the Be a Mermaid stamp set from Pink and Main. To see this stamp set up close and how I made these cards, watch my YouTube video below:

My first card is a shaker card. For the background, I used the Catch a Wave 6 x 6 embossing folder from Pink and Main and then inked the background using distress oxide inks — Peacock Feathers, Broken China, and Blueprint Sketch. I added the sentiment to the background using white embossing powder and adhered the mermaid to the background. I used a stitched scalloped rectangle frame die, acetate, and added some sequins that matched the colors of the mermaid.

For my second card, I made a mini slimline card. This card measures 3 1/2″ x 6″.  I used the wave pattern paper from Pink and Main’s Vitamin Sea paper pad and cut it to 3 3/8″ x 5 7/8″. I love the wave design on this pattern paper as it looks like the mermaid and other sea creatures are swimming under water. I used a border die to create a sandy hill at the bottom of the card layer and fussy cut some of the shells from the pattern paper pad. I added a sentiment using white embossing powder and added the sea creatures to the card.

For my third card, I created an ocean scene. I used a wave die to die cut two pieces of pattern paper from Pink and Main’s Vitamin Sea pattern paper pad for the ocean waves at the bottom of the card. This particular mermaid stamp is two pieces — the head and the tail. I love how this stamp looks like she is swimming in the water. I also used Pink and Main’s Sunny Hello Die set and added the sun at the top of the card. I used a 2 3/4″ stitched circle die to add a center to the sun. I added the Sunny Hello word die to the top of the sun.

Pink and Main June 2021 Release
Pink and Main, Summer

Pink and Main June 2021 Release

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing two cards that I made using products from Pink and Main’s June 2021 release. This release is all about summer! I love to make summer cards so I was super excited to see all of the fun products in this release. If you want to see all of the products, please check out my YouTube video below.

In the meantime, here are the two cards I made using a few of the products from Pink and Main’s June release. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be making cards with all of the products so be sure to stay tuned…

Pink and Main June 2021 Release

To see Pink and Main’s June 2021 release and to see how I made these cards, watch my tutorial here:

For my first card, I ink blended a sky background using Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock that measures 4″ x 5 1/4″. Next, I used the Sunny Hello dies to die cut cardstock in various shades of orange and yellow. I also die cut the flip flops from a piece of pattern paper and black card stock. I paper pieced the sun and flip flops together to create the fun sun shown on my card. I die cut the Sunny Hello word die in orange and yellow cardstock. I layered the two cardstock colors to create a layered look. The entire card layer was adhered to an orange A2 size card base.

Pink and Main June 2021 Release - Sunny Hello Handmade Card - Handmade card with sun and flip flops

For my next card, I used the Aloha die. I die cut it from three colors of cardstock — blue, green, and light orange. I paper pieced the cardstock layers to create the beautiful hibiscus flower shape. I adhered that onto a piece of patterned paper that measures 4″ x 5 1/4″. I also die cut the Aloha word die and layered it onto a white shadow layer. I colored the Stand Tall flamingo stamp and added it to the front of the card with dimensional foam tape. The patterned paper layer was added to a piece of blue cardstock that measures 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ and the entire card layer was adhered to the top of an A2 white card base.

The Stamps of Life April 2021 Card Kit - Remember This - Birdbath2Stamp - 10 Cards 1 Kit

The Stamps of Life April 2021 card kit was released on April 15 and I’m super excited to share with you the 10 cards I made with the kit, but first, let’s talk a little about the kit…. This kit corresponds to the monthly stamp and die set called Birdbath2Stamp as well as the add-on set, MoreBirdbath2Stamp. Here’s a picture of everything that is included in the April Card Kit.

The Stamps of Life April Card Kit Club

The April card kit is called the “Remember This” collection. The color pallet for this month is Cherry, Bubblegum, Lemonade, Mint Chip, Blue Jay, Sky, Pixie, Grape, and Powdered Sugar. This kit comes with 12 cardstock sheets — one in each color plus four Powdered Sugar cardstock sheets.

The paper pad is the Remember This Collection and comes with 24 double-sided sheets of patterned paper. It also includes several birdbaths, birds, and butterflies that can be die cut with the shadow dies from the Birdbath2Stamp Dies.  In total, there are 8 birdbaths, 24 birds, 12 butterflies, and 2 sets of bushes that can be die cut from the paper pad to be used on your cards. These die cuts make for quick and easy cards because they are already colored for you!

The card kit also comes with a Remember This word die, epoxy dots, flower rhinestone stickers, chipboard, two ribbon, a sentiment stamp set with two small birds and matching dies, idea card, a set of envelopes, and a large storage envelope to put everything in. There is also an extra FREEBIE die from Stephanie. Woo Hoo!

Below, I have a video showing the unboxing of the card kit and my design process for all 10 cards I made with the card kit. I also have links to all of the supplies used for my cards at the very end of this post.
