Pinkfresh Studio January Release Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio January 2019 Release Blog Hop!

You should have arrived here from the amazing Yoonsun's blog. I'm sure she's shared some gorgeous inspirations with you!

Today I'm sharing quite a few cards, so hang in there :D. This probably happened because we were on holiday and for like 11 days I could not craft at all, so when we got home and my package was there, I couldn't stop creating! That and the fact that this release is jam packed with gorgeous products!

First up is the wonderful Heart and Soul stamp and coordinating die set. I'm not much of a colorer but I had to give it a try!

All my cards are mounted on A2 size (4.25x5.5") top folding card bases (portrait or landscape format). Here I added a piece of teal card stock on top, on which I white embossed the title. I probably shouldn't have done this because the letters are tiny and the embossing didn't work out so well. Especially because I used textured card stock. Just so you know what it says: "So fill your heart with what's important and be done with all the rest." In person it's easier to read!


I then stamped the image in gray ink and colored in everything I could. I die cut the image using the coordinating die. I added some foam adhesive to the back and pressed it down on the metallic teal thread I placed in that corner. To finish this off I drew white faux stitches and added a few gems.


I created two more cards with the same stamp and die set. This time I did not want to color, instead I took some aqua striped vellum, matching embossing powder and embossed the image on the vellum. I die cut them and then decided to die cut the shapes from white card stock too because I didn't like the different colors peaking through the vellum.


I added a few strips of color card stock to each card base, then stamped the sentiments in navy. I popped up the die cuts and used some tangled thread and some twine to add a bit of texture and interest. Last but not least a few gems were placed here and there.


Next up is one of my favorites from this release: the Embroidered Blossoms stamps and coordinating dies. On the back of the packaging of each set you'll always find a couple of examples what you can use the products for. Just to give you an idea if you don't know where to start. Which is what I did this time because the 3 samples are the most gorgeous arrangements and the color combos are fabulous! I picked one and started stamping the images just like on the sample.


But then I couldn't stop there and kept adding more blooms towards the top. Gosh isn't this color combo just fab?! I never would have come up with it on my own!

I glued a couple of strips of cornflower colored card stock at the bottom. I white embossed my sentiment on one of them. This sentiment is from the Scripted Bold Sentiments 2 stamp set. Some twine and Nuvo drops finish off this card.


For my next card I used the Oval Foliage die to create my focal point. Isn't this die so clever?! Using the coordinating Oval Foliage stamp set I stamped a pink oval and a light blue sentiment. I then realized I simply can't handle that much white surface hehe, so I stamped blooms in the same color combo as above, using the same Embroidered Blossoms stamps. I cut this panel slightly smaller than A2 so I could back it with an A2 size colored card stock. I also tuck a piece of pink card stock between the layers, for which I used a border punch.


I made another card with the Embroidered Blossoms stamps and coordinating dies. Here I stamped a bunch of blossoms in pinks, purples and yellows, a few leaves in black and some more leaves I embossed in chartreuse color. I die cut everything and created two flower clusters in opposite corners. Before gluing them down, I used a corner chomper in the bottom right corner. I generally prefer straight corners but I thought I'd try something different. I didn't dare to chomp off the bottom left corner as well because I don't think I would have liked that look. I like this asymmetrical look though. 


I glued down the flowers and leaves, stamped my sentiment (from the Heart and Soul stamp set) and added some black ink splatters. Done!


Next up is another favorite that took me by surprise, the Adore Alpha stamp and coordinating die set! I do love alpha stamps and dies in general but when I first saw this one, I didn't notice the teeny tiny detail stamps that make all the difference! Check out this awesomeness:


With the dies you get 2 for 1 cuts, because it cuts the letter AND a thin outline so you can make two cards right away. Which was my plan too but then I decided to add back the outlines (card on the left); so I just die cut Valentine two times from white card stock. On my first card I used the stamp set too, to add color to the letters. Then I white embossed those little decorative elements. Isn't that super cute? I'm so in love! I glued an A2 size piece of patterned paper (Simple & Sweet collection) on the card base and layered a pink heart on it. I popped up the letters using foam adhesive. I stamped my sentiment in black, on white card stock (this sentiment is from the Word Series: Happy stamp set from last year). 

For my second card I backed the white outlines with different colored card stock. I glued them down on the card base, stamped my sentiment (from the Word Series: Dream stamp set from last year), added some twine and black ink splatters. Done!


On my next card I didn't use the outline. I stamped and die cut the letters, then embossed the little florals on them. I layered some colored card stock and patterned paper on the card base, with foam adhesive between two layers. I also popped up the letters. I added some twine and stamped my sentiment, It's your day, from the Scripted Bold Sentiments 1 set.  



Almost there guys, almost there! :) On my last 3 cards I used the super sweet Make a Wish stamp set and coordinating dies. Each design is similar, with different color combos.

First one here will be for my little niece if I don't forget I have this card by August haha! I stamped and die cut loads of flowers and leaves in a few different colors. As well as cakes, cakes stands, the whole nine yard! I glued a purple heart on my card front and added the little images. For some of the flowers I used foam dots but mostly I just adhered everything down using liquid glue.


I stamped a sentiment in purple and created a lilac ribbon bow at the bottom. A few purple enamel dots and you're good to go!


Next card is pretty much the same, except I used a scrap piece of patterned paper (Simple & Sweet collection) and I put everything off center. Here I added a third cluster of flowers too.


These two cards will be for my best friend's twins in May, again, if I don't forget! :D


Next is a boy card, yay! Well, I'm not very sure about the flowers but hey, boys could love them too right? Same concept as before, except here I'm using a rectangle instead of a heart.



You've made it, yay!!!
