Pinkfresh Studio Ink Pad Release Blog Hop


Hello friends, and welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio Ink Pad Release Blog Hop.

Pinkfresh has done it again. Amazing, high-quality products that you absolutely need in your stash. The colors of these ink pads are saturated and vibrant, giving you the perfect impression every time. They are available in full size or ink cubes, and I’m sure you’ll love them as much as I do!

I’m excited to be part of this blog hop. I have three cards to share with you. They all feature the Just a Little Lovely collection, the Lovely Blossoms Stamp and Die set and, of course, the gorgeous ink pads.

I started by stamping an unbelievable amount of flowers and leaves! LOL! I chose a variety of colors that complemented the ones in the paper collection.

For the first card, I used the “New Thoughts” patterned paper and die cut two rectangles with the Stitched Rectangles Stand Alone Cuts. I adhered the smaller one to the base with foam adhesive and arranged three Wood Accent Stickers on top – it gives me the idea of a wall décor piece. I then placed the stamped flowers and leaves in the top left and bottom right corner, as well as in between the sentiments. Finished the card with enamel dots in coordinating colors.

The second card features the “One fine day” paper. This time I used the Diagonal Stitched Rectangles Die Set for my card base. I also cut a circle from pink cardstock using the Braided Circles Die Set for the center. Before adhering it down, I added two Gold Foiled Acetate Ephemera pieces on top and bottom, just to bring in a bright and shiny element. I decided to use just one of the flowers in the stamp set and create a wreath with them – they look like ribbons to me. I finished it with a Puffy Sticker sentiment and colored twine.

The third card is the simplest of the three, but I love how dainty it looks. The “Highlight” paper features a lovely floral pattern, perfect to use as a card base. Using both sides of the paper, I die cut two diagonal stitched rectangles in different sizes. I then adhered seven sentiment strips from the Just a Little Lovely collection to the front and arranged the remaining stamped flowers and foliage in between. Simple, easy, done!

Pinkfresh Studio May Essentials Release Blog Hop


Hello there, PF fans! I’m so excited to be part of the Pinkfresh Studio May Essentials Release Blog Hop. So many new, amazing stand alone dies that every crafter needs in their stash.

You should have arrived from the super talented Emily Midgett‘s blog.

Today I’m sharing three cards created with some of the sets. I had a lot of fun playing with them.

The first card features the Lacey Edgers 1 and the Fancy Label Frames sets.

I started by trimming the “Ticket” patterned paper from the Out and About collection to measure 3.5 x 4 inches; I then chose plain cardstock in coordinating colors to add detail and interest. I used one of the Lacey Edgers to cut two borders, one from coral cardstock, the other from pink cardstock. I adhered the first at bottom edge and the second at the top, where I had also added a strip of coral paper to make the lacey edger more visible.

For the sentiment, I created a dimensional piece by layering three of the Fancy Label Frames. Again, I went with coral and pink and used foam adhesive in between the layers. The “Hello” sentiment comes from the Classic Words Die Set, which was released in April. Two puffy stickers from the Joyful Day collection and twine wrapped around the spine finished the card.

For the second card I used the Braided Circles set and the gorgeous Crystal Mix.

These crystals are absolutely beautiful! They’re colorful and sparkly, perfect for shaker cards. I created my window with the bigger circle die; after adhering a piece of acetate to the back, I filled it up with pink crystals and foam mounted the whole frame to the Out and About “Ticket” patterned paper cut to size. Next, I die cut another circle to place inside the window. I love how the coral cardstock pops against the soft, pink card base. To embellish, I used die cuts and stickers from Joyful Day and Everyday Musings, while for the sentiment, I again went back to the Classic Words Die Set.

The third card is very simple, but I like how it turned out 🙂

I layered patterned paper, one of the Braided Circles, a wreath from Joyful Day (which I backed with coral cardstock) and a few, fun die cuts. Easy peasy.

Now onto the prizes! To celebrate this release, Pinkfresh is giving away the full May Essentials release on their blog and IG feed.

Pinkfresh Studio April Essentials Release Blog Hop


Hello there, PF fans! I’m so excited to be part of the Pinkfresh Studio April Essentials Release Blog Hop. So many new, amazing stand alone dies that every crafter needs in their stash.

You should have arrived from the super talented Emily Midgett‘s blog.

Today I’m sharing four cards created with some of the sets. I had a lot of fun playing with them.

The first pair features the Inverted Stitched Scallop Circles. Both cards have a simple design, enhanced by the pretty floral bouquets of the Fancy Blooms Stamp Set and the new Pinkfresh paper collections.

For the first card, I used the bigger scallop circle to create an opening in the center of my 4”x5.25” panel, which I had trimmed from the Being Us paper in the Joyful Day collection.

I backed the opening with the True Story patterned paper and added tiny sequins all around the circle for a bit of sparkle. I adhered the card panel to the base with foam adhesive, but not before wrapping twine around the top portion of it. Next, I added the bouquet from the Fancy Blooms Set I had previously colored with alcohol markers, and the sentiment, which comes in the Classic Words Die Set – another amazing product from this release!

The second card features the smaller circle.

Here I used the die to cut three circles (one of which got covered by the bouquet) in the card panel and created a shaker with the same sequins I used for the first card. I adhered the big bouquet with foam dots for dimension, and added the word “love” from theClassic Words set. To make the sentiment stand out more, I cut it from both white and black cardstock, and glued it slightly offset to create a shadow.

The next set of cards features the Diagonal Stitched Rectangles and the Classic Edgers.

For the first card, I simply cut the rectangles from different patterned papers and stacked them together using foam adhesive. For the center, I created a dimensional piece by layering the inside of the big stitched scallop circle, the small circle cut from white cardstock, and the Best Wishes sentiment. Sequins around the edge of the small circle finished the card.

For the second card, I cut the first layer from pink cardstock and used one of the Classic Edgers to shape the right side. I then added two layers of patterned paper, making sure to reduce the width just 1/8” on each side, so to show the papers underneath. I completed the card with Puffy Stickers from the Joyful Day collection, sequins, the Beautiful sentiment from the Classic Words set, and an additional sentiment from the Ephemera Pack.

Now onto the prizes! To celebrate this release, Pinkfresh is giving away the full April Essentials release on their blog and IG feed.

I will also be giving away a $25 gift card to their store.

The winner will be picked randomly on Sunday, April 14th and will be posted on the Pinkfresh Studio GIVEAWAY PAGE. Make sure you check that page & claim your prize within 2 weeks.
