Pinkfresh Studio March 2021 Cling Stamp, Stencil, Die, and Hot Foil Release

 



Hello and welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio March 2021 Cling Stamp, Stencil, Die, and Hot Foil Release Blog Hop! There's so much to love about this release and I know you're all going to fall in love! I've made two cards for today's hop, but I can't wait to use more of the fabulous new products! Some of you may know that my sweet Father-In-Law passed away and we laid him to rest on Saturday so my mind and emotions have been elsewhere! Maybe that's why I picked this particular sentiment for my first card! Isn't it true? Anyway, before I dive into the particulars on the two cards I made, I wanted to make you aware that the ENTIRE release will be given away to two lucky winners from the Pinkfresh Studio Facebook page and one from the You Tube channel. 

Don't forget to comment here for a chance to win one of 10 $25 dollar gift certificates being given away from the hop designers! All the winners will be posted on the Giveaway Page on April 5th and you must claim your prize within two weeks! Don't forget to check out the Free Shipping information on the graphic below!




For those of you who don't own a hot foil machine, my post today is for you! ha ha! I am showing the new Folk Garden Cling Stamp paired with the coordinating Folk Garden Layering Stencils and the new Folk Garden Die. Now, I do have to mention that it DOES have a coordinating Folk Garden Hot Foil Plate, so if you DO hot foil, it provides beautiful results! I decided to do some gold embossing to give it a luxe feel without doing any hot foiling. My second card is similar in feel, but I didn't do the gold embossing and I die cut all the pieces for a different look.
To use this particular suite of products, you will want to BEGIN with the stamp. I found I got the best results by "floating" the large background stamp in the middle of my MISTI door so that I could get a nice impression on each side without having it get caught up in the corners. If you've played with background stamps enough, I think you'll know what I'm talking about. ha ha! For BOTH cards I stamped the large image using Coral ink onto a piece of blush cardstock. I left the background stamp inside my MISTI so I could go back over the top with Versamark ink to do the embossing AFTER I did the stenciling.

Once I had both backgrounds stamped out, I removed them from my MISTI and used the layering stencils to add the color. I was going for a mono-chromatic look so I chose to use Coral Reef, Passion Fruit, Berrylicious, and Candy Apple ink to do all of the stenciling. Note: you could also just use the background stamp by itself and color the outline images using the medium of your choice. 

For this card, I didn't do the gold embossing but opted to just use the coordinating dies to cut out the pieces. Once that was done, I used the negative space of the die as a guide to lay them back together onto another piece of blush cardstock using foam squares for dimension!
For this card, I put it back inside the MISTI to add the Versamark ink over the top and then used gold powder to do the heat embossing. The possibilities are endless with these new products and you can completely change the look the colors that you choose! I had toyed around with doing something traditional and folksy by having a black background and bright colorful flowers, which would be so much fun! I'll have to give that a try, too! Don't forget to head to the other designers' blogs to see what they've come up with!

Hello from Malta, New York. Kelly I am so sorry for your loss of your sweet father-in-law. I will say that time does help and doing something you enjoy helps a lot. I agree "Strength looks different Day by Day", it will take time to heal, take the time.
Thank you for showing ideas for us non owners of a hot foil machine. I will say with this new release from Pinkfresh Studio- is making a beliver out of me. My birthday is coming up in April I guess I now know what to ask for. I will say your cards are amazing. Thank you.
