I gasped when I saw the gorgeous new Classic Edgers die cuts and couldn't wait to put them to use! It was hard to decide which one I like best, so I decided to just go ahead and use 4 out of the 5! LOL! I actually used a few of the other new essentials as well, one of which is the beautiful new Braided Ovals die set. These, paired with the edgers, set the stage to create a classic and clean set of note cards. I also used the Oval Foliage stamp set which complements these new essentials so perfectly.
To begin these notecards, I die cut four pastel colored pieces of cardstock using the new Stitched Rectangles to give that polished and professional edge that I am always looking for in my designs. I especially like using dies like this for CAS designs, because it adds just the right amount of detail without a lot of effort!
I die cut the white rectangle piece using the Stitched Rectangles die set as well. It comes with both clean cuts and detailed cuts, which I love. I was able to add the detail from the Classic Edgers to one side of each of these rectangles, choosing a different design for each one. I have quite a collection of edger type dies, but none of them have the sweet details like these! I will be using these quite a bit, I can tell!
The Braided Ovals were also die cut from white and they set the stage perfectly for the gorgeous foliage and sentiments from the Oval Foliage stamp set. I am so happy with how these cards turned out!My second set of projects uses the new Classic Words dies that I will also be reaching for again and again. I don't own any word dies that also include the "shadow" portion, so I am so excited to have these!
To begin today's designs, I used some Distress Oxide ink to create two blended panels that I die cut using the new Stitched Rectangles as well as the previously released Oval Foliage Die set. I have seen some of the Pinkfresh designers use this die set recently and I have fallen in love! I am so thrilled to have this; I just love the detail it adds to my designs! This set the stage for the white "hello" and the vellum shadow. I used the bright and fun fruit from the Fruitastic stamp set to complement the words.
For this project, I used the Braided Ovals dies to create coordinating tags to go with my cards. The sentiments from the Fruitastic set are so unique and unlike any I have seen on the market previously! I love when a stamp set fills a void that I have in my collection, which sometimes seems impossible based on the magnitude! LOL!
My final project uses the Braided Oval again, but this time I used the larger of the two to showcase this amazing unicorn. This is the first Pinkfresh Studio stamp set that I owned and it is so much fun! It is called Magical Unicorn and I just love it! I normally just make the unicorn on a rectangle piece, but stamping it on the oval really gave the unicorn some shape and extra dimension.
This card is very straightforward, but I had so much fun making it and adding in all of the flowers and sparkles. The horn is heat embossed in gold, which I just love! I had so much fun working on all of these projects for the release! Don't forget to leave a comment to be eligible for the 25 dollar gift card! Thanks for fluttering by!
