Hi there crafty friends,
I'm back today with some new card inspiration for Pinkfresh Studio!
I only have two cards for you today that I've created with some of the new release stamps and dies as well as the Simple and Sweet scrapbook collection.
Let's start with the simpler one! I went with the Leafy Backdrop stamp set which I haven't had a chance to use before. I find it super versatile! Imagine all the possibilities for backgrounds, whether stamping, embossing, watercoloring! I love this set!
I matched the colors of my inks to the colors of the Simple and Sweet collection. I cut a 4.25x5.5" piece of white card stock.
I did make a practice card, just so I could figure out how many stamps I'd need in every color, but other than that this goes very quickly! I used my stamping tool so that I could stamp each leaf twice to get a crisper image. Once done, I trimmed off a little bit on each side. I made an A2 size top folding card base, then attached a pink plaid patterned paper from the Simple and Sweet collection in the same size. I layered my stamped card front on top.
Then I die cut just the top part of the shop from patterned paper from the Simple and Sweet collection. I turned it around, so it has the scalloped edge at the bottom. I then folded this behind the card front and glued it down. Originally I die cut the shop from my favorite blue paper from the Case of the Blahs collection but it didn't look the way I imagined, so I just used parts of it to decorate my new pink house. I do realize the door should go all the way down to the bottom but for some reason I liked this better, even though it doesn't look right hahaha! I embossed the handle in white and used a white gel pen to add in more white details.
I fussy cut some images from one of the paterned papers from the Simple and Sweet collection; some sweets, lemons, a bike and some frames that I cut up and used for shelves. I named my shop Every Nice Thing ha! I used some foam adhesive here and there to create dimension. Last but not least I put some flowers on my store front, because I need flowers on everything.
I did want to make a second card, a flower shop, but then I had no time. Maybe soon!
That's it! Hope you like today's cards!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I wish you an awesome day!
