Pinkfresh Studio Ink Pad Release Blog Hop

Hello Pinkfresh Studio fans,

Finally the big day is here! Seriously, I've been waiting for this all year haha! You should have arrived here from my sweet and talented friend Yaz's blog! Since I'm the last stop in this big blog hop, I'm probably not going to be able to show you a whole lot of new things, but I took a LOT of photos to show you the AMAZING new ink pads as best as I can! I wanted you to see all 48 colors because they are just THAT fabulous and I wasn't able to pick just a few hehe!

I apologize for the length of this post but it will be more photo than text heavy. Bear with me!

I stamped the same design with each ink pad set, making 12 cards in total. The lovely stamp set I've used here (and in fact on every project in this post haha!) is my most favorite Pinkfresh stamp set ever (clearly!): Embroidered Blossoms.

I also stamped some white card stock with the darkest ink in each set, then die cut my sentiments using the Kelly Alpha Lower Case die set  for a tone on tone look. Can you pick a favorite?! I honestly don't think I can! I love me a rainbow :D.

I also took photos for you guys showing each card against the ink pad sets. I haven't brightened or saturated these photos so that you could see the colors as they are in person. I think they are pretty realistic.

You can buy the full collection of full sized ink pads HERE and the full mini ink cube collection HERE. I'm using Affiliate Links - these don't cost you anything, but help me a little to bring you more inspiration! I appreciate your support! I'm linking the single ink pads and mini cube sets below, with each picture.

1. Rise and Shine - while yellow is not my favorite color, I actually was most excited about this set because it has a gorgeous variety of yellows which I don't have from any other brands.

2. Indian Summer - I love that the oranges are muted in this set! Absolutely stunning!

3. Heartbeat - All the heart eyes for this set, I love corals and use them a lot too.

4. Fairy Dust - Lovely pinks, my absolute favorite is Raspberry Bliss!

5. Soul of Provence - I love purple and what I love most about this set is that it has different purples, not just different shades of the same color. All 4 look so pretty and interesting together, I especially love the plum colors (Candy Violet and Regal Kiss).

6. Over the Hills - Perfect greens for foliage!

7. Garden Stroll - Who doesn't love a good mint set?!

8. Island Oasis - Or aqua?!

9. Morning Sky - And then there are all the blues of course, oh my goodness! I hope you're as excited as I am haha!

10. Starry Night - This set has some of my most favorite blues, cornflower, royal, navy...What's not to love?!

11. Wild Truffles - Wonderful browns for all your fall (and coffee!!!) themed projects :D. I even made some Christmas cards with the two lightest pads, check here. That polka dot background is stamped twice, I think the coverage is amazing! These pads are so juicy!

12. Urban Raincoat - Beautiful cool grays!

By the way, these ink pads coordinate with the 12 Pinkfresh liquid water colors, if you needed another reason to buy these hehe!

I was stamping a background for fun the other day using these ink pads (but stamps from another company) and I fell in love with the color combo so much, I took out the Embroidered Blossoms stamp set AGAIN (as well as the coordinating Embroidered Blossoms dies) and stamped and die cut  a million flowers in those colors. I used them on a layout, 3 cards and I still have plenty left haha! Take a look:

I popped up the flowers using foam tape, the foliage I glued down with liquid adhesive. I felt that this layout didn't need embellishing, so other than the title (Puffy Alpha stickers are from the Office Hours collection), I only added a die cut and a wood button (both from the Just a Little Lovely collection). 

For all these projects I've used the inks you see here in the picture:

For the LOVE sentiment I've used the Adore Alpha die set, but I haven't used the outlines. 

The "Do what makes your soul shine" and "Today is a good day for a good day" sentiments are from the My Favorite Things to Say stamp set

Some gold splatters finish off all three cards. I hope you like how they turned out!
