The Greetery: TGIF with Pinwheels Party Fun!

Hi there!

I'm up on The Greetery Blog today for the TGIF post and I wanted to share my card here on my own blog. I used the new Pinwheels Party stencils and Pinwheel Party dies in my card along with some pretty florals from Print Shop Fresh Florals and Top Down Day stamp sets. 




I've had a lot of fun playing with the Pinwheel Party stencils and dies. Although this is a birthday card, they are by no means limited to only birthday themed projects. I think they make lovely backgrounds just lightly stenciled onto your cardstock. I love to have a soft background for floral cards or collage type cards. 




So for this card, I used the Pinwheel stencils and very lightly stenciled several different pinwheels in different colors and sizes onto the background. I speckled with a tiny bit of the same color inks. I then stenciled some more pinwheels and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I layered these onto the card with foam tape.  I stamped and cut out some of the pretty little bunches of flowers from the Top Down Day stamp set and tucked those behind the pinwheels. I also added some of the flowers and greenery from the Print Shop Fresh Florals stamp set.



To finish it up, I stamped the Happy from the Birthday Blooms stamp set, cut it out with the coordinating die and added it to my card with foam tape. The small birthday is also from the Birthday Blooms stamp set. I heat embossed it with white embossing powder and added it below the happy with foam tape as well. 

I hope you have enjoyed my project today and I hope it will inspire you to play around with the  Pinwheel Party stencils in fun and unique ways!

Hugs,

Kay :)

Pinkfresh Studio + Altenew “Celebrate” Collaboration Blog Hop Details + Giveaway



Hi there! I hope everyone is doing well. What a wonderful surprise we have for you this month! A collaboration between Pinkfresh Studio and Altenew! Two wonderful companies with beautiful products! What more can you ask for! I have created two cards to share with you today using some of the new items.  



My first card uses the beautiful Celebrate Today stamp set. This set also comes with a coordinating die, but I decided to just stamp it directly onto my watercolor paper with waterproof black ink. I watercolored it with the lovely liquid watercolors from Pinkfresh Studio. I love it that they remain vibrant even after drying! 




After everything was dry, I speckled it with some white ink. The sentiment I used is also included in the Celebrate Today stamp set. I heat embossed it with white embossing powder and added it to my card with foam tape.

***



My next card was created using the Celebrate Ephemera Pack. I love to make collage type cards, and this pack was so perfect for that. There are so many pretty designs in here and enough to make many cards if you decide to use it for that.  





Some of the items I glued down flat and some I added foam tape behind to give it some dimension. 




And with so many words art phrases included in the pack, I didn't even have to think about adding a sentiment. 

I'm so glad you stopped by my blog today! Below you will find information about the giveaways , shipping discounts, the  list of all of the participating designers and the linked supply list!

Today I'm showcasing the Jungle Friends stamp set and coordinating dies, Jungle Additions stamp set and coordinating dies, Simple Sayings: Brave stamp set, Nature's Essentials die and Jungle Background Stencil.





For my first card, I blended distress inks for the background. I cut the Nature's Essentials die out of kraft card stock and glued that over my background. I added the tree and the grass cut from the Nature's Essentials die also. The grass was blended with Distress inks and splattered with more of the same color.




The images are from both the Jungle Friends and Jungle Additions stamps sets. They were all colored with Copic markers , cut out with the coordinating dies and added to the card with foam tape. The sentiment was stamped in black ink and is included in the Jungle Friends stamp set.

For my next card, I used the Jungle Background stencil and blended several shades of green distress inks onto my white cardstock base. The images again are from both the Jungle Friends and Jungle Additions stamp sets.  The sentiment is from the Simple Sayings: Brave stamp set.





All of the images were colored with Copic markers, cut out with the coordinating dies, and added to the card with foam tape.

Pinkfresh Studio: June Release Blog Hop




Hi there! It is time for the Pinkfresh Studio June Release! There are some amazing new products showcasing today! I can't wait to show you what I've created!


I'm using the Pop Out Hexagon stamp set, Simply Hexagons Die and Hexagon Floral Bunches dies.

I love hexagons! A lot of my artwork I do with cards and my clay revolve around six sided shapes. I love radial symmetry and playing around with patterns, so these products today were a lot of fun for me! I will definitely be making many more cards with them!



For my first card, I cut the Simply Hexagon die out of teal cardstock and glued this down to an A@ size white card base. I then cut more of the hexagons out of light teal, pink, dark pink and white cardstock. I used the stamps from the Pop Out Hexagons stamp set to stamp the patterns onto the cut out hexagons, then I glued those into the spaces with liquid glue.



I stamped the little floral piece in the center with black ink, and colored it with Copic markers. I then cut it out with the Hexagon Floral bunches die and added it to the center of the card with foam tape. The sentiment is also included in the Pop Out Hexagons stamp set and was heat embossed with white embossing powder and added to the card with foam tape as well.

***



My next card is done pretty much just like the first one except that I cut the Simply Hexagon die out of white cardstock, and glued it down to a light teal card base. I stamped the different patterns onto the die cut hexagons and added them into the spaces with liguid glue. I left all of the outside pieces out to create a fun flower shape!



I stamped the little bouquet of flowers, colored it with Copic markers and added it to the center with foam tape. The sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder and added with foam tape as well.

I hope you have enjoyed my cards today! Below is information on prizes and giveaways, the list of all of the contributing designers and supplies I've used are all linked.

Pinkfresh Studio: Modern Layered Florals




Hello there! I have a couple of cards up on the Pinkfresh Studio blog today and I wanted to share them here on my blog as well. 

Recently I have fallen in love with the color gray, and I just love it paired up with red and black. I think the monotone look of the gray with just a pop of color from the red looks so pretty! Today I'm using the beautiful Modern Layered Floral stamp set and Modern Layered Floral die along with some Essentials dies.




For this card, I used the Diagonal Stripes with Window die and cut it out of white cardstock. I layered this over some light gray cardstock. I stamped the floral bouquet from the Modern Layered Floral stamp set in Rocky Slope, Misty Coast, Passion Fruit and Coral Reef dye inks



I cut the floral bouquet out with the Modern Layered Florals die, and layered it onto the card with foam tape. The sentiment is also included in the Modern Layered Floral stamp set. I heat embossed it with white embossing powder onto black cardstock and added it to the card with foam tape.



My next card is a square 4.24x4.24 size card. I love making this size and it still fits nicely inside of your A2 size envelopes. For this card, I used the Diagonal Stitched Squares dies and cut a diamond out of the center of the largest die. I added this to my square card base with foam tape. The floral bouquet was stamped exactly like the one above using the same inks. I stamped them both at the same time :) I added foam tape to the back of it and tucked it inside the frame I created. 




The sentiment is also included in the Modern Layered Floral stamp set and was heat embossed with white embossing powder, cut out and added with foam tape.

I hope you have enjoyed my cards today!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
