PinkFresh Studio Folk Garden Birthday

Hey Guys! Ok, I have to say it .. I’m in love with this PinkFresh Studio Folk Garden set! I ordered the foil plate, die cut and stencils, and it’s a great combination. I’m sure I’ll end up getting the stamp at some point, but am super happy with my purchase! So, let’s get into today’s project, which I love!

I began my project by foiling the Folk Garden plate on a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System. I then used the coordinating stencils to add color using PinkFresh Studio Inks Ocean Breeze, Aquamarine, Ballet Slipper and Sparkling Rose and cut that panel using the coordinating die.

I needed a background for all of my leaves, so I stamped the Diamond Tiles on Neenah 110lb using Misty Coast Ink, and used the Diagonal Stitched Rectangles to trim it out. The longest part of this project was cutting all the little pieces of 3M Foam Tape to put on the back of the leaves! I placed those on my panel and trimmed off the excess.

I had in my mind that I wanted to add a really pretty gold sentiment .. guess what? I was out of gold cardstock! How does that even happen?! With that being said, I had to switch directions. My birthday card stash is seriously lacking, so I obviously went with that. I die cut the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Classic Words Die set twice from Neenah 110lb and I cut the shadow twice from the same. I needed to add color to one of the layers, and the easiest way to do that was to lay the die cut back into the negative piece and lightly ink blend over the bottom portion of my die. Once that was done, I adhered all of my layers together using Craft Tacky Glue.

My sentiment was adhered directly to the leaves and I added my required bling using the PinkFresh Studio Jewels Mix. My panel was then adhered to my card base, which is also Neenah 110lb.

I think this project came out really pretty, and I’m super happy with it! I’m so glad that you stopped by today, and I hope this project inspires you to get creative too! Don’t forget to stay awesome!

Simon Says Stamp Mini Stars Party Birthday Card

All the Feels Release

Hello! Hello! Thanks for stopping by today! The new Simon Says Stamp All the Feels release is AMAZING! What are your favorites? I would love to know!

For today’s project, I’m featuring the new Mini Stars Party die cut. Remember the Mini Hearts Party die from the Love You release? Same idea, just with stars! So let’s get started! To begin my project, I die cut a bunch of strips using the Pretty Pink Posh Simple Strips from various colored cardstocks. I used a tape runner to put down some adhesive on a thin piece of white paper and adhered my strips to that.

I die cut the Mini Stars Party die once out of Neenah Classic Crest 80lb cardstock. While I was cutting, I went ahead and cut the Happy Birthday sentiment twice from Neenah Classic Crest 110lb, and cut the shadow twice from black cardstock. I went ahead and adhered the sentiment pieces together using Craft Tacky Glue. I ended up trimming down the Mini Stars Party die because I wanted it to fit across my striped panel without any overhang.

I adhered the star panel directly to my striped panel using glue, and then adhered the Happy Birthday sentiment on top of the stars using 3M Foam Tape. Why foam tape? Because dimension is life! I added some of the white stars to the panel as well using foam tape for interest.

Because I like dimension and contrast, I adhered my striped panel to a black cardstock panel and then adhered that to my 5 x 7 card base, which is Neenah Classic Crest 110lb that I had previously splattered with some thinned black gouache.

That’s it for today’s project! I hope you enjoyed it! Don’t forget to check out the new All the Feels release! You won’t be disappointed! Thanks again for stopping by!

Stay awesome!

Birthday Bouquet

PinkFresh Studio Joyful Bouquet

Hey there! It has been way too long, I know! I’m new at this and am working to find myself a groove! Anyhoo, I’m glad you stopped by!

I just received my PinkFresh Studio shipment, which included the new Joyful Bouquet stamp, die and washi set, and I had to play right away! To begin my project I rolled out this beautiful washi onto some Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and used the coordinating die to cut all of the pieces out.

I used the PinkFresh Studio Stitched Scallop Rectangles to cut a panel of 110lb cardstock and die cut the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Classic Words die set. I cut the sentiment three times from 110lb cardstock and once from gold cardstock. Why? Because dimension is life! I will never stop saying that! I adhered all of my sentiment pieces together using Craft Tacky Glue.

I needed a background for my frame, so I stamped the PinkFresh Studio Diamond Tiles on a piece of 110lb cardstock using Misty Coast ink. Once that was done, I trimmed my stamped panel a tad bit smaller than my frame, and adhered those together using 3M Foam Tape.

I just need to say … This washi is GORGEOUS! Moving on, I played around with the positioning of my sentiment and flowers to get the perfect placement and then adhered my sentiment to the panel using Craft Tacky Glue and adhered my floral pieces using foam tape. I trimmed the excess off with scissors.

My panel was then adhered to my card base, which is Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock. And as we all know, no card is complete without some bling, am I right? I used the PinkFresh Jewels Mix to add that needed sparkle to my project.

That does it for my project today! I’m so glad that you stopped by and I hope this inspires you to get crafty in your space.

Don’t forget to stay awesome!
