Saturday Coffee Cafe - Layer Up

Saturday, March 23, 2019

 
Hooray, you're here!  I'm so excited you dropped in the cafe today and can't wait to show you what's being served up!



My natural style is clean and layered, layered, layered.  While I enjoy playing with inked backgrounds and such, I still love my pattern papers! When I saw this Coffee Paper from Echo Park, I fell in love because the patterns are so pretty and mix and match so well!



For the card, I layered a solid paper from Divinity Designs Latte Love paper pad and the chalkboard pattern from the Echo Park Coffee paper pad and adhered to the card base then  layered up coordinating papers from the pads.  The pretty lace circle was created by cutting shimmery white cardstock with the Fun Stampers Journey Doily Die.  After layering on the dark brown cardstock cut with one of the Divinity Designs Pierced Circle dies, I created the ‘to go’ cup using Divinity Designs Beverage Cup dies.


To complement the card, I made this cute coffee bean gift using the new Test Tube Treat dies from Divinity Designs. This die set also includes the bow and tiny tag dies shown here, too!  The sentiments are from Divinity Designs Treat Tag Sentiments #2 and #3.  I filled the tube with coffee beans, of course!


Hope you have a java great day!

Divinity Designs Celebrating You

Friday, March 22, 2019



 Have you seen the fabulous Divinity Designs February Release?!!  Today I'm sharing two projects created with several of the newest goodies - and a couple older faves, too!

This first project is perfect for a teacher, student or office worker.  I began cutting red cardstock using the new Test Tube Trio Dies and cut patterns from the Chalkboard Collection Paper Pad with the layers dies included in the die set.  The adorable die cuts were made using the Clipboard Set Dies.  The sentiments, from the Treat Tag Sentiments #2 stamp set, were stamped and cut out using one of the banner dies inclued in the Test Tube Trio Dies.  I filled the Test Tubes with paper clips, clamps and push pins.  Bet you have great ideas on items to fill the tubes with too!


 I always seem to need make a quick birthday card and this one is super easy to pull together!


To start, I cut white cardstock using one of the Pierced Rectangles dies.  Then, using the Flower Burst Stencil, I blended a few bright colors of distress oxide ink.  The new Birthday Stamp/Die Duo is perfect for adding quick and interesting sentiments!  I also added a candle from the Birthday Candle dies.

Pink & Main 5th Birthday Celebration and Blog Hop!

Wednesday, March 20, 2019


Pink & Main is celebrating its 5th Birthday and YOU are invited to the party!!  Come join the blog hop for fun, inspiration and surprises!


Comment to win!  Leave a comment on each blog in the hop listed below.  There will be FIVE random winners chosen from the comments left on our blogs. Each winner will each win a $50 store credit!!



























For my first card, I created a splattered background with distress oxide inks.  The balloons were created by using one of the balloon dies from the Party Balloons die set and cut from a background piece I made with a rainbow of distress oxide ink colors then tied twine to each.  Using the Celebrate dies, I cut the word from shiny gold cardstock and the outline from black cardstock.


For my next two cards, I first created a rainbow background with distress oxide inks.  I then used the Happy Birthday dies to cut out the center of each card.  Taking the cut out words, I placed them into the openings of the opposite card.  A great way to get two cards in one!


Be sure to join the hop and celebrate with us!
