Pinkfresh Studio {Happy Birthday}

 Hello and welcome! I'm happy to be here today sharing a birthday design using a few of the new release items such as the new Small Butterflies hot foil plate and the beautiful new Hydrangea and Rose washi tape. I had stenciled a bunch of butterflies to use on a project for the release, but they ended up being WAY too bright for the project I planned. I was thrilled to find that by using the hot foil plate with vellum, it was the perfect overlay for these stenciled butterflies. It toned them down just enough for this soft birthday design!

To begin this card, I used the Layered Sunburst Stencil set to create the soft background using Sparkling Rose, Soft Lilac, and Raspberry Bliss inks. I used the Essentials: Stitched Rectangles to die cut the edges for a finished look. I set that aside and got to work on the other design elements. As I mentioned earlier, I had already stenciled the butterflies, so all I needed to do was add the hot foiled vellum overlays! I used clear liquid glue to secure them in the center.

I die cut the gold circles using specialty gold cardstock and the Essentials: Stitched Scalloped Circles and then added them to the stenciled background using mini foam squares. I added the beautiful flowers from the Hydrangea and Rose washi tape and then let the butterflies float here and there for an organic feeling!

I used the Perfect Sentiments hot foil plate for the sentiment. I used gold foil so that it would match both the hot foiling on the butterflies and the gold on the washi tape. I added a few gems here and there for additional detail and shine! Thanks for fluttering by!

Pinkfresh Studio June Washi, Stamp, Die, Stencil, and Hot Foil Release Blog Hop

As I mentioned earlier, I'm sharing two cards with you today! Up first is this fun rainbow design which is similar to the last Pinkfresh project I shared, but I used a different rainbow and I added the darling new Small Butterflies Stamp Set as well as the Small Butterflies Layering Stencils and coordinating Small Butterflies Die.

To begin the butterflies, I used the stencils using shades of orange and yellow to create Monarch type butterflies. I thought they would accent the rainbow nicely without being too busy.

Once the stenciling was complete, I used the coordinating stamp to add the detail images. Once that was done, I used the dies to cut the butterflies out and set them aside.

I felt like this particular sentiment was absolutely perfect for this butterfly design and so I stamped it in black at the top of an A2 sized white card base. This sentiment is from the previously released Floral Bunch stamp set as well as the flowers.

I die cut all of the pieces of the Color Block Rainbow Die and then put them back together using foam squares for dimension. I layered the flowers hanging over the edge and then squared them up using my paper trimmer.

I added the butterflies here and there using additional foam squares. I'm thrilled about the fabulous new gold Metallic Pearls! They are so much fun and I added them to a few of the butterflies here and there!

My second project for today uses the new Floral Vase Layering Stencils which coordinate with the previously released Floral Vase Stamp set. I used to color this set with Copic markers, but now I can do it quickly and effortlessly with the new stencils.

I used the outline stamp on both images to give them the added detail over the stenciled designs.

I love the look of the vase, so I decided to add some watercoloring to the background using ink, a blender brush, and a few spritzes of water! Easy peasy!

I added a few jewels as well to add some sparkle and shine!

Don't forget to head to the other designers' blogs! Thanks for fluttering by!

Pinkfresh Studio {Flower Power}

 Hello friends! I'm excited to be here today sharing a bright, fun rainbow/floral design! When it was all said and done, I thought it had a 60's "Flower Power" vibe, hence the title of today's post! This is one of those cards that evolved on its own and I was just along for the ride! ha ha! My original plan didn't work out, but what came in its place is so much better!

To begin this card, I die cut the rainbow strips using the Color Block Diagonal Stripes die using different colors of cardstock. I ended up using 11 in total to give the rainbow the gradient look that I adore! I cut a piece of white cardstock measuring 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inches and added the strips to the top using liquid glue. I purposely left the corners bare, but in the end it didn't matter since I covered them up with the flowers. 
I'm obsessed with the new Lots of Love die set and knew it would be perfect with the rainbow strips. I used a few of the same colors of cardstock to die cut the letters and added them to the white shadow using liquid glue. The heat embossed sentiment that is underneath is from the My Favorite Things to Say 2 stamp set.
I really love the Floral Bunch suite of products and knew these daisies would be perfect for this flower power design! I used the Floral Bunch stamp set and the Floral Bunch Die to stamp and die cut and then finished it up with the fabulous Floral Bunch Layering Stencils
From there, I just placed the edges of the image over the corners and adhered them with foam squares and then squared them up with my paper trimmer. Of course I had to add a few jewels, which you can now buy individually! I had so much fun creating this card! Thanks for fluttering by!
