Hello Pinkfresh friends,
Welcome to the August release blog hop! We have lots of amazing new products to show you today as well as some prizes and promotions! Enjoy!
You should have arrived here from the lovely and talented Yasmin's blog but you can find the whole blog hop list at the end of this post in case you're lost.
Without further ado...My projects for today!
I was assigned the suuuuuper duuuuuper gorgeous Kelly Alpha Lower Case and Kelly Alpha Upper Case dies, which ultimately are my favorite products from the new release. Not only are they stunning, they are the perfect size for both cards and layouts and they work together perfectly (upper and lower case I mean). I'm super excited about these dies, I hope you love them as much as I do!
Another die I LOVE from this release, is the Leafy Envelope - it might look familiar to you! And you're not wrong, this same design was used for the Mail Delivery stamp set, which was a collaboration stamp set among the participants of The Stamping Village at CHA 2019. You can still buy this adorable set on the Pinkfresh homepage! In fact, there is now a new collaboration set available too, which is just as sweet and perfect for the upcoming holiday season: Holiday Seals. Such an awesome idea!
But back to my cards! All 3 are A2 size top folding cards (portrait and landscape). I first create a card base from heavy weight white card stock, then I add all my layers on those - this is always the case, even if I make white cards. I only have access to the 80lbs version of the Neenah Solar White card stock, and it's not thick enough for a card base, in my opinion. I don't like flimsy cards, I like them to be firm and stand up on their own. Soooo, I cut a 4.25x5.5" piece of patterned paper from the Office Hours collection, and attached it to my card base. I then die cut the letters from various card stock and backed them with white card stock. I die cut the envelope from white card stock and one of the patterned papers from the Just a Little Lovely collection - as well as some color card stock. I glued the envelope on a piece of white card stock, then did some paper piecing to add some colors. I stamped and embossed "Sending" on the bottom flap. This sentiment is from the Floral Vase stamp set and it's the perfect size! I added some foam tape behind the envelope and glued it down on my card front. I added the letters too. To finish off this card, I added some twine and gold ink splatters.
For my next card I die cut a few branches from white card stock as well as a blue patterned paper from the 6x6 Just a Little Lovely paper pad, using the Leafy Branch die. I then added a piece of navy card stock to my card base.
I glued down the white branches on the card base and did a bit of paper piecing with the blue. I die cut my title from coral card stock and backed it with white. Using foam adhesive, I attached the letters to my card front, then I splattered some gold ink all over. I also added some enamel dots, for pops of color.
Last but not least I created a bow which I glued down at the top.
On my third card I used the same blue patterned paper as above.
I die cut all the letters for my sentiment from various color card stock then backed them with white. I put back a few of the teeny tiny hearts in contrasting colors. I played around with arrangements a bit and once I settled on this design, I glued down the letters. I splattered some gold ink all over.
I chose a sentiment from the Floral Vase stamp set and embossed it on a white strip. I adhered this in between the two die cut words using foam tape. To finish off this card, I added some twine at the top.
And now for the fun part!
