Pizza My Heart with Pink and Main
Hi, everyone! I’m so thrilled to be the Guest Designer for August for Pink and Main. The wheels have been turning with ideas to share with you throughout the month, and I hope they inspire you to create something amazing! I’ve created a Puzzle-Shaker card for my first project featuring the Pink and Main Super-sized Stamps, and Coordinating Dies along with the Puzzle Heart Die and Pattern Maker Stamp Set. You can check out the video tutorial over on my website or YouTube.
Stamp the pizza slice 6 times, keeping the slices as close to each other as possible without overlapping them. Stamp one slice off to the side to be colored and die-cut later. Color the pizza slices using COPIC markers.

Die-cut the slices using the Puzzle Heart Die, I was careful to keep the pieces together, but you can use Cling Wrap if you prefer. Flip the heart over, remove one puzzle piece for shaker window, add adhesive, and secure a piece of acetate over the heart and trim. Add 3D mounting foam to the acetate.
Using the Pattern Maker Stamp set, stamp three lines on the top and bottom of a 4.25″ x 4.25″ #110 top-fold card base with khaki ink. Lay the puzzle piece behind the heart and center the heart on the card base.
Carefully remove the heart, holding the puzzle piece in place and lightly trace around the corners of the puzzle piece. This allows us to lay our sequins down and avoid the “upside-down guessing game.” You know exactly where to place your heart, too. Add sequins. I used a sequin mix of reds, greens, and golds.
Remove backing off 3D mounting foam and adhere to card base pressing firmly in place.
Die-cut the single slice of pizza using the coordinating die from the Super-sized Dies. Add mounting foam to the back of the slice of pizza and position in the top right corner, be sure to leave the shaker window peaking out. Stamp sentiment onto Kraft paper using embossing ink, add white embossing powder and heat set. Trimmer down with paper trimmer, add 3D mounting foam to the back and adhere to the lower part of the pizza puzzle. Add three sequins to finish the card.
