National Coffee Day Blog Hop

Today is National Coffee Day! Pink and Main is sponsoring the Coffee Loving Card Makers hop. Please join the hop and make sure to leave a comment on Pink and Main's post to be entered to win a $25 gift certificate to their shop.

I created my card using the newest coffee stamp set from Pink and Main, Pumpkin Spice with the paper pad of the same name. I did a bit of paper piecing using the Sunny Cover Die.

I colored the latte and cupcake with coloring pencils and added a bit of twine and Glossy Dots.

Enjoy the hop and don't forget to comment on Pink and Main's blog post.

DIY Mermaid Banner with Rita Barakat

It's officially Fall, but it's always Mermaid Season. I had a special request for a Mermaid banner for a bridal shower. I immediately reached for Rita Barakat's mermaids and Rinea Foiled paper.
I used Princess Mermaid and Floral Mermaid.
I die cut the bunting with Pink and Main dies and then stamped the Mermaids with Rinea's Ghost Ink.

I added the Mermaids onto card stock used flowers and gems to embellish. Difficult to see the tulle, but I tied to the the ends of the banner.

The detail of Rita's images are amazing. Her rubber stamps are deep etched and you get the perfect stamped image every time.
I hope you enjoyed the banner, thank you for visiting and happy crafting!

DIY Gift Box with Rita Barakat

Sing is hands down my favorite fave stamp by Rita Barakat. I created this quick, fun and festive gift box with Sing and Rinea Foiled Paper.

I took a Kraft box and painted it black with Folk Art black paint. I then used Pink & Main dies to cut the side and top panels of the box.

I used Rinea's Ghost Ink to stamp Sing on the Rinea Foiled Paper. Ghost Ink works on the foiled paper, but instructions varies according to your climate.
I adhered the panels onto the cut green scallop die cut squares and securely added them to the box.

I love making flowers with Rinea's Foiled Paper! You can die cut multiples with ease.

There you have it! A quick, easy and festive gift box. Doesn't Sing look fabulous!

Thank you for stopping by!
