Pinkfresh Studio July Release Blog Hop


Hey there crafty friends and welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio July Release Blog Hop! There's so many awesome products in this release, I'm sure all of you finds something you like! Also! Christmas in July y'all!!! It's so weird to create Christmas cards now... I've never actually done this. Last year I started making them in November or so and I thought I was so early haha!

It was really hard to decide which products to use first, I wanted to try each one! Unfortunately I had no time though as we were getting ready for vacation - as you read this we should be arriving to our favorite place in the world, Barcelona, Spain!

Alright, the first product I will show you is the Geo Floral Background die. While this is not a holiday die, I decided to create only christmas cards for today's post. All cards are 4.25"x5.50" (one is landscape format) top folding cards. For my first card I die cut the Geo Floral Background from white card stock and glued it on a white card base.



I then stamped the unicorn from the Magical Christmas stamp set with Versafine ink on a light pink paper from last year's Christmas collection and embossed it with gold embossing powder. I die cut the image with the co-ordinating Magical Christmas die set. I stamped my sentiment on vellum and embossed it too. I added some gold tangled thread behind the unicorn for texture. I finished it off by adding some gold splatters and puffy heart stickers.


OK, this next set, the Train Ride stamp and die set, is the cutest ever! The images are so tiny!!! Everything is adorable in a small size right? Ha! I matched my ink colors to last year's Pinkfresh Studio Christmas collection, then I stamped all the little elements on white card stock. The pieces that have a co-ordinating dies, I die cut and placed on pop dots to give them dimension. Everything else I stamped on the background paper directly.


Just for something different, I made a "hill" from patterned paper and placed the train on it, as if it was going up the hill.


I felt like my card wasn't finished, so I decided to add some shimmer on the train (not sure if it's visible here in the photos) as well as some pearls!


My last two cards are made from one diecut panel! Nothing goes to waste here haha! So I cut the background panel from pink glitter card stock, then die cut a circle shape fom from this. I backed my first panel with a light pink patterned paper from last year's Christmas collection.



I pulled out some embellies from the previous Christmas collection and placed them on my card front.


Some gold thread, pearls and done!

On the other card I used the negative cut out. This glitter paper is so pretty, I wasn't going to waste any of it!hk

I went with a simple white backround, only added some gold splatters. I layered everything in the midde, at times with foam adhesive, other times just normal glue.


The embellies are again from last year's Pinkfresh Christmas collection.
