Pinkfresh Studios Holiday Stamp & Die Release

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio Holiday Stamp and Die Release! I'm so excited to share all of the amazing new products with you and a few projects that I created using a few of the new stamps and dies! There's a huge blog hop to celebrate the occasion, so make sure you head to the designers' blogs to see their amazing projects!
As always, there's fabulous prizes up for grabs. Leave a comment here to win a 25 dollar gift card and head to the Pinkfresh Blog (linked above) to find out how you can win the entire release! And now, on to the projects and products!
I put some holiday music on and had so much fun using the new Season's Greetings stamp set! This is the perfect quintessential Christmas set; I have lots more ideas to share with you during the holiday season so stay tuned! To begin, I stamped the wreath in black and then colored it using an assortment of alcohol markers. Once that was done, I used the coordinating Season's Greetings die collection to die cut both the outer portion and the inner portion. I knew that I would be using this sentiment and wanted it to be peeking out from the center of the wreath. I do really like that it has the option to leave the center, or die cut it. It really makes the set that much more versatile.

I added few of the gorgeous Essentials Crystals around the wreath using liquid glue. I have been DYING to use these red ones and this was the perfect opportunity! I also stamped, colored, and die cut the bow and added it to the top of the wreath.

I heat embossed the sentiment in white onto a tag that was die cut using the Essentials Braided Tag die. I  love the shape and the instant detail and interest it adds to my design with minimal effort! You could actually stop at this point and use it just as a tag if you wanted! 

I'm in love with the Essentials Pretty Frames die cut and knew that it would be the perfect border to frame the tag. I love this Grinchy green paired with the classic red! All of these elements are layered onto a white card base using foam squares for added dimension!
For my second design, I wanted to keep the same feel as the first card but switch it up by using the new Layered Wreath Die. In the end, this card is one of those designs that could be mass produced easily and sent out in quantities!

Can you see what is hiding behind the card in the upper right corner? Yep...you guessed it! Pinkfresh is releasing their own ink pads and they are AMAZING!! There will be an official release soon, but in the mean time, we are sneaking them into our holiday designs as you will see as you hop along! I did some inkblending over the top of this dry embossed panel that I created using the Modern Bloom die using the new ink!

I added the layered wreath using foam squares for dimension. The die includes some berry shapes, but if I can get away with using Nuvo drops, I'm going to do it! LOL! They are so addicting and I was able to add quite a few! Ha ha!

I used the new Classic Holiday Words to create the sentiment that says "Be Merry". I added that over the wreath using foam squares.

I heat embossed the "Christmas Greetings" sentiment, which is from the  new Skiing By stamp set in gold and added it under the "Be Merry" sentiment.

A few Essentials Crystal Mix finish off this fun and festive holiday design!

This is the third and final design for today's hop! I've used the fun and charming new set called Skiing By stamp set. I used another one of the sentiments on the previous card. As you can see, I used more ink pads; this time to do some inkblending to create this wintery sky! I also added some on the ski slopes so that they would have some added dimension.

Once I had the ink blending done, I used the Skiing By die collection to die cut all of the pieces and assembled the scene! I kept a very simple color combination for this graphic card. I added some snowflake embellishments using liquid glue to enhance the "take time to chase the snowflakes" sentiment!

Of course, I couldn't resist adding another sentiment from the Classic Holiday words to the bottom. I added a few sparkling clear sequins for some added shine and a quick spritz of Shimmer Spray!
I had so much fun creating these designs! Thanks for fluttering by!
