Pinkfresh Studio January Release Blog Hop



Hello! Today is the blog hop for the January Release from Pinkfresh Studio! I am excited to share a couple of projects I've created using some of the wonderful new stamps and dies! There are prizes to be given away and tons of inspiration along the way, so be sure to scroll all the way down to see the line up of designers participating and learn how you can win a gift certificate to Pinkfresh Studio!


I made two cards to share with you today using the Phrase Builder Sending Die set, Wild Flower Sketches stamp set, Wild Flower Sketches dies, Layered Bouquet stamp set, Layered Bouquet dies, Curvy Floral Vine and Curvy Floral Vine dies.


My first card uses the Curvy Floral Vine stamp set and coordinating dies and the Phrase Builder Sending Die set, along with the Ornate Oval Frame die which was released with the last Essentials release.


I blended some distress inks onto the background before layered the frame and floral accents with foam tape. I also added a little bit of detail to the stamped image with my Polychromos colored pencils. The sentiment was cut out with the new Phrase Builder Sending Die set.  I added some distress ink blending and adhered to the card with foam tape.


My next card uses the beautiful Layered Bouquet stamp set and dies along with the Wild Flower Sketches stamp set and dies.  I blended some distress ink for the background and stamped the sentiment with black ink.



The flowers were adhered to the card with liquid adhesive and then the smaller ones in front were added with foam tape.

My first card today uses the beautiful new Written In Ribbons stamp set and dies. I just love these large sentiments, which you can stamp in two shades! Along with this set, I also used the new Sketchbook Roses which we are showcasing today. I used some images from Signed & Sealed and Pretty Postmarks. 


The background was stamped with the Window Pane Plaid Background stamp and blended lightly with blue ink.

This next card features the Sketchbook Roses stamp set and dies. I stamped just the outline image onto cardstock and colored it with my Polychromos colored pencils. I added some white and gray speckles to the background. 


The sentiment was heat embossed and die cut, then added with foam tape.

Today we are showcasing: Signed & Sealed stamps + dies, Signed & Sealed With a Kiss stamps + dies, Pretty Postmarks stamps + dies, Windowpane Plaid Background red rubber stamp and Postal Frames die.

New Products will be in the shop on Friday, January 17 at 10 am EST


So my first card uses a bit of everything! I love doing collage type cards, and these new products lend themselves to that type of card, so I went to town! I used Signed & Sealed stamps and dies, Signed and Sealed With a Kiss Stamps and dies, Pretty Postmarks Stamps and Window Pane Plaid stamp  



I just partially stamped the Window Pane background in red and blended some of the same color ink lightly over that. I then speckled with the same color mixed with a bit of water.

***



My second card is also a collage type card. This time  I primarily used the Pretty Postmarks stamps and dies, but also used some images from Signed & Sealed with a Kiss.  



The background was stamped first with some of the images from Pretty Postmarks and speckled with some brown dye ink mixed with water.

***


My third card uses the new Postal Frames dies along with the Window Pane Plaid background stamp, Signed & Sealed with a Kiss stamps and dies and a sentiment from the new Sentiment Suite: Love stamps, which you will see more of tomorrow.



I love the new Postal Frame dies! They layer together so wonderfully!

Pinkfresh Studio: Folk Mandala





Hi there! I'm super excited to be sharing a couple of cards on the Pinkfresh Studio blog today and thought I'd share them here on my blog as well. These cards feature the beautiful Folk Mandala stamp set and Folk Mandala dies. I am a huge fan of mandalas or anything that has radial symmetry, so when I saw this stamp set it was love at first sight! I couldn't wait to play with it!



For my first card, I stamped the mandala with Copic friendly black ink and colored it in with Copic markers. I stamped the birds separately and colored them as well. I cut the mandala and the birds out with the Folk Mandala dies and added the birds with foam tape. 



I added the finished mandala to an A2 size white card base with foam tape, then stamped the sentiment below. The "you" was stamped with Rocky Slope Dye ink and the rest was stamped with black ink.



 For my second card, I stamped the mandala and the birds with black ink  all on one layer and cut the whole mandala out with the Folk Mandala Dies.



I used a soft gray cardstock for my background and layered the largest of the Ornate Banner dies over top of that. I stamped the sentiment in Rocky Slope Dye ink and black ink along the bottom, then adhered the mandala on top with foam tape. 
I love how different the two cards came out using the Folk Mandala Stamp set and Folk Mandala Dies. I love the pop of color on the first one, and also think the monotone black and white one is quite striking!  I hope you have enjoyed my cards today! 
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs,
Kay :)

Tis The Season


Hi there! I hope you are enjoying the holiday season! I have been making a lot of holiday cards behind the scenes here and thought I would share one of those with you today. I just purchased these two stamp sets and had so much fun working with them!




I used the Tis The Season Stamp set and Tis The Season Dies from My Favorite Things along with Stained  Glass Greetings  from Simon Says Stamp. The gingham was stamped with the Micro Gingham Background stamp from Ink Blot.



I used Distress inks for the blended background and sprinkled with water. All of the cute images were colored with Copic markers, cut out with the coordinating dies and added  to the card with foam tape. 



Both of the sentiments were stamp with Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder. The Merry was cut out with the coordinating die, and both were adhered with foam tape. 

All of the supplies I have used here are linked below. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs,

Kay :)
