Pinkfresh Studio October 2020 Slimline Stamp, Die, and Stencil Release Blog Hop


Welcome friends, to the Pinkfresh Studio October 2020 Slimline Stamp, Die, and Stencil release blog hop! Try saying that five times fast! ha ha! I'm sharing two projects with you today using a handful of the new products. I'll also be sharing the link with the other designers on the hop at the bottom of this post. You'll definitely want to hop along to see all of the fabulous inspiration that they have to share! 
Lots of business today, so bear with me....but it's FUN business! As always, Pinkfresh Studio will be giving away the ENTIRE release on their Instagram Page, Facebook page, and You Tube to one lucky commenter! Leave a comment on my blog for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the Pinkfresh Shop. Check the GIVEAWAY PAGE on Ocotber 23rd for a list of the winners. You MUST claim your prize within two weeks or it will be forfeit. Also, the Memory MISTI comes in handy when using these larger stamps, so My Sweet Petunia is offering the Memory MISTI at a 20 percent discount using the code PINK.




My first card for today uses the new You are My Favorite stamp set, You are My Favorite Die and the coordinating You are My Favorite Stencil set. I die cut the large floral image first and then lined up the stamp in my memory MISTI inside the negative space for perfect alignment.(because of the large size of these stamps they can become "floppy" and so it is helpful to line in up in the MISTI around the die cut negative). Once it was aligned correctly, I placed the die cut into the MISTI and stamped it in black ink.

Once you have the image stamped, the stencils come in to play. Please note, these stencils create a whimsical looking image, so they won't line up "perfectly" inside the black lines, so don't stress yourself out! LOL! You can use the colored reference sheet on the back of the stamp/stencil/die packaging to see how it is supposed to look when it is finished.
Once I had completed each of the steps with the stencils, I had some fun putting this card together. I really wanted to use this large sentiment and thought it would be fun to place almost in the middle and then frame it with the flower image. 

I decided to cut it and place it how I like around the sentiment. This really gives you some variety AND you could use it like this on a standard A2 card as well. The finishing touch of this card is the Diamond Plaid Layering Stencil inked up with Sweet Mustard ink. I only inked up the edges since you can't see the middle. I layered the focal point on top using foam squares for dimension. I added some glitter AND Jewels for maximum shine! I finished the design off with just a hint of pink ink splatter for added detail!




My next card uses the new Incredibly Grateful stamp setIncredibly Grateful die and Incredibly Grateful Stencils to create a Christmas design! I think it's always fun to explore different possibilities with our floral sets to stretch their use! I had so much fun putting this holiday design together using a few of the different background stencils and this rectangle floral wreath.

Once again, I die cut the outer portion FIRST, placed the stamp in to the negative space to get it lined up just right. THEN, I added the die cut in the MISTI and did the stamping and stenciling. Once that was all done, I die cut the inner portion to create the frame. This step is optional and you don't HAVE to die cut the center if you don't want to. 

I used TWO of the new stencils together to really bring some added pattern and detail to this card. I used the Diagonal Stripe Stencil on the outer Slim Ornate Banner Die and the new Diamond Motif Stencil on the middle panel. I love the hint of detail it adds beneath the die cut and ink blended letters. I added some glitter to the tops of the letters for some snowy detail and shine!

I always love adding a heat embossed sentiment over the top of the words I create on my cards. For this card, I used one of the sentiments from the fabulous new Our Home to Yours stamp set embossed in silver.

I used the AMAZING new Layered Snowflakes Dies stacked together in three groupings for some added detail. I just love how they look stacked together. To achieve this look It was important for me to keep some of the center portions in tact to reduce visual distraction. I used foam squares on the back to keep the larger center pieces in tact. Of course, the snowflakes got a sprinkling of glitter and jewels as well. The frame has a hint of glitter and a few jewels to finish this design off! Don't forget to hop along to the other designers' blogs to see what they have to share! Thanks for fluttering by!

Woot! I love your NOEL card! Talk about eye catching & non-traditional colours. This is a release I am so impressed with. I've not ventured into slimline cards yet (mostly due to lack of $), yet after seeing this wonderful release, along with what was shown of the other dies PF has introduced, I'm either hoping my name is drawn, or I'm going to have to start saving.

Luanne said...

I love your beautiful cards! Such cool products coming our way. Thank you for sharing these!

cm said...

Both cards are amazing, but it's the Noel that absolutely takes my breath away! All the lovely details you've combined make for a card that truly is frame-worthy! Oh dear...my list has just become much, much longer! I adore slimlines and have nearly the full spectrum offered by PFS; looking forward to welcoming some of the new stamps/stencils + dies into my collection (and some alphas and snowflakes, too)!
