Pinkfresh Studio August Release Blog Hop {Wishing YOU peace}


Hello and welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio August release blog hop! I'm so in love with ALL of the products being released today and I'm sure you will love them, too! I'm incorporating a few different sets today on this pair of cards as well as a new alphabet that I LOVE SO MUCH! {It has nothing to do with the fact that it is called Kelly Alpha Upper Die set wink wink} There is also a Kelly Alpha Lower Case die set as well! Anyway, you'll want to hop along to EACH of the designers' blogs and leave comments along the way. There will be a winner of a $25 dollar gift certificate on each blog and the winner will be pulled from the comments! There will also be a giveaway for the entire release on the Pinkfresh Studio Blog and Instagram! Winners will all be posted on Sept 2nd on the Giveaway page!
Also, there are a few promotions going on that you'll want to take advantage of:
First, there will be automatic US free shipping on orders of $100 dollars or more. Second, there is a free die with purchase WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.

Now that all of the business is taken  care of, let's get down to the fun stuff! As I mentioned before, I created two cards for today's hop! I used the versatile set called Lovely Blossoms stamp set. I had so much fun stamping all of the different flowers and picking which colors to use to create these little clusters!

I wanted to keep the cards similar, but not exact so I switched up the colors of the Essentials Pretty Frames die set . I chose this bright Raspberry color for this card. I knew it would pair well with all of the different colors of blossoms I had stamped!

I actually die cut all of the pieces first using the Lovely Blossoms die collection; I die cut quite a few so that I would have many to choose from when creating these tiny bouquets. I simply placed the die cuts back into the negative space in my mini MISTI and stamped them all assembly line style!

Once they were all cut and stamped, I got to work laying out the rest of the card. I die cut the center portion of the  Essentials Pretty Frames die set using Linen cardstock. I layered the frame on a panel of Linen cardstock as well using foam squares and strips to give it some dimension. The center portion is adhered with foam squares as well.

The "YOU" letters were die cut using the Kelly Alpha Upper dies twice for each card. I wanted to create sturdy letters so they are stacked together using liquid glue. I added these to the center portion of each card. These dies remind me of vintage story books and I can't wait to use them for lots of things; especially Christmas cards!
Once that was done, I got to work arranging the flowers in little bouquets/clusters using foam squares for dimension.

I heat embossed the "wishing you peace" portion of the sentiment, which is from the new Floral Vase stamp set in white onto a black sentiment strip. It is added over the die cut "YOU" using foam squares. You are going to fall in love with ALL  of the sentiments from this release; they are always so unique!

I added some Essentials Crystal Mix to the centers of some of the flowers. I love how you can see through them so you can still see the color of the centers!

I hope you enjoyed today's blog hop! Don't forget to leave a comment to be eligible to win the prize! I'll be sharing lots more projects using more of these fabulous new stamp sets, so stay tuned! Thanks for fluttering by!
