PinkFresh Studio Miss You Butterflies

Hello Friends and Happy Friday! I hope you’ve had a great week! Thanks for stopping by to check out my new butterflies card featuring the new Small Butterflies combo from PinkFresh Studio! This is such a beautiful set! I can’t wait to try the butterflies again in different foil and ink combinations! Let’s jump right in, shall we?

To begin the project, I cut a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and foiled the Small Butterflies using Spellbinders Champagne foil. Then I did some light ink blending on them with PinkFresh Studio inks, Sky Blue, Slumber, Blue Jay and Misty Coast, using the coordinating stencil set. Once the ink blending was done, I used the coordinating die to run them through the die cutting machine. I also foiled the Perfect Sentiments plate using the same Champagne foil and ran those through the machine using the coordinating die for those as well.

While die cutting, I went ahead and cut a frame using the Slim Stitched Scalloped Rectangles, and also did a little ink blending on that as well, using the same Sky Blue ink. I cut another panel of Neenah 110lb and pulled out the Diamond Motif stencil and lightly ink blended some Misty Coast ink on that. I put foam tape on the back of the frame and adhered it to the Diamond Motif panel. I also cut a couple pieces of the Leafy Branch to add to the panel as well.

I glued only the base of the stems of the Leafy Branch to the Motif panel and added the butterflies using foam tape for dimension. I adhered this to my card base, which is also Neenah 110lb. To finish up the project, I added my Miss You sentiment from the Perfect Sentiments set using a combination of glue and foam tape. And .. no project is complete without some bling, so I added some PinkFresh Studio Jewels

That does it for this project! I might actually be in love with these butterflies! So much so, that I might have to order the larger ones! I hope you enjoyed this project and I hope you’re inspired to get crafty too! Stay awesome sweet friend!

PinkFresh Studio Folk Art Birds Congrats

Hey there Crafty Friend! Woohoo for Friday, right?!? I hate to admit, but I have a huge bin of products that I just haven’t gotten around to using yet. Do you have a bin or pile that you haven’t gotten around to yet? So for this project, I pulled out some of the PinkFresh products in there and got to work!

To begin this project, I hot foiled the PFS Folk Art Birds using Spellbinders Champagne foil on Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock, and then did some ink blending using the coordinating stencils and PFS inks Mint, Raspberry Bliss and Sparkling Rose. Then, I used the coordinating PFS Folk Art Birds die, and ran it through my die cutting machine.

I also ran a panel of Neenah 110lb through the die cutting machine using the PFS Stitches Background, because I wanted some interest and that subtle hint of texture behind my birds. I placed foam tape on the back of all of the Folk Art Bird pieces and adhered those to my stitched panel. I used the PFS Leafy Branch Die to cut one piece from gold cardstock and trimmed that into pieces so that I could tuck them around the leaves from the foiled pieces with glue.

I foiled the PFS Perfect Sentiments Foil Plate using the same Champagne foil and cut those out using the coordinating die. I cut the sentiments two more times from Neenah 110lb so that I could glue those to the corresponding sentiments for dimension. I chose the Congrats sentiment from this set, because this card kinda seems wedding-ish, and glued that directly atop the Folk Art Bird pieces.

To finish up, I adhered the panel to my card base, which is also Neenah 110lb cardstock. I debated on whether to add jewels, but decided against it since there was so much shine as it was. I hope you enjoyed this project, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty!

Have a wonderful weekend and don’t forget to stay awesome!

To begin, I cut all of the die elements from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb cardstock. I also cut the backing die for the sentiment panel once from black cardstock. I adhered the Heartfelt Thanks panel to that black panel using Craft Tacky Glue. I took the trimmed oval insert portion and used the Flower Pattern Glimmer Hot Foil plate to add Sky Bright foil for some added interest.

I adhered all of the oval sections together using a combination of glue and foam tape. I used the Hemstitch Rectangles to cut a panel of black cardstock, and adhered that to my card base, which is also Neenah 110lb. I then glued the oval panels atop that. For more added interest, I used the Mini Blooms and Sprigs Die set to cut some matching blue flowers, yellow centers and green leaves and adhered those to the card using glue and foam tape as well.

Spellbinders Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes

Hey Friends! So glad you stopped by today! I was super excited to play with products from the new Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection by Becca Feeken from Spellbinders! Have you checked it out yet? For today’s project, I’m playing with the Beautiful Inside and Out Sentiments Stamp set! Let’s get into it!

To begin this project, I cut two pieces of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and foiled the Spellbinders Glimmering Peony Hot Foil Plate using Champagne Foil. Champagne is my go-to color for foil! I just ordered a bunch of new to me colors, so I may find a new favorite in those, but who knows! While I already had the Glimmer machine going, I went ahead and foiled the Skinny Stripe Background using the same foil on another panel of Neenah 110. Anyhoo, I went to town coloring the foiled peonies using Copic Markers Y00, Y08, Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17, YG11, YG13 and YG17.

Once those were colored, I fussy cut them and placed foam tape on the back of both. I took the Skinny Stripe panel, trimmed it down and popped it in the Misti and stamped my sentiment from the Beautiful Inside and Out Sentiments, using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink. I removed the backing from the foam tape on the flowers and adhered those to my striped panel and trimmed off the excess.

I adhered the striped panel to a black cardstock panel for some contrast and then adhered those to my card base, which is also Neenah 110lb. I decided to foil another peony and fussy cut that to adhere on the inside of the card where I stamped the other sentiment using the same VersaFine ink. To finish up the card, I added some PinkFresh Studio Jewels for some bling.

That does it for this card! I hope you like it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty in your space! Hop over and check out the entire Beautiful Sentiment Vignettes Collection! Lots of fun things to look at!

Stay awesome my crafty friend!

Spellbinders Truly Yours Collection

Hello Crafters and welcome back to my blog! I was super excited when I was asked to create a few projects using the Spellbinders Truly Yours Collection! This is such an awesome collection because it features Glimmer plates, dies and even a great sentiment stamp set! So let’s get into today’s four projects!

For my first project, Sending Hugs Floral, I’m featuring the Rings Around the Circle Die set, a sentiment from the Mini Sincere Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate and Die set, as well as some flowers from the Heart Swans Die set. To begin my project, I die cut the Rings Around the Circle dies from Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and some yellow cardstock.

I adhered the white circles to my card panel in a random pattern, and inlaid the small yellow circles into the big circles using glue. I then die cut the flowers and leaves from the Heart Swans Die set using blue, green and yellow cardstock, and adhered the centers of the flowers. The flowers were then adhered to the middle of the circles using a combination of glue and 3M Foam Tape.

Using gold foil, I hot foiled the Sending Hugs sentiment from the Mini Sincere Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate and Die set and adhered that to my panel using foam tape. My panel was then adhered to my card base, which is also 110lb cardstock.

On my next project, Miss You Heart Swans, using gold foil, I doubled foiled the two largest plates from the Essential Glimmer Label Glimmer Hot Foil Plates on a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock. I then die cut the wreath from the Cameo Etched Dies set from the same cardstock and adhered it to my foiled panel using glue. I die cut the swans from the Heart Swans Die set and lightly ink blended some PinkFresh Studio Sparkling Rose around the edges, and adhered those over the wreath using foam tape.

I die cut the flowers from the swan set using pinks and green cardstock and adhered the centers of the flowers. I then adhered the flowers around the the gold foil using glue and foam tape for dimension. I stamped the Miss You sentiment from the I’m Here for You Stamp and Die set using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and heat embossed it using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. I glued the sentiment directly to the swans in the center. My panel was then adhered to my card base.

My third project, You’re on My Mind Floral, ended up being my favorite project of them all! I loved these little flowers so much that I decided to make my own background using them. For this one, I die cut a bunch of flowers and leaves from the Bouquet of Flowers Die set using blue, pink, purple, yellow and green cardstock and adhered the stems and flower centers using glue. I then arranged and glued them atop a gold splattered panel, trimming off the excess as needed.

I then adhered my panel to a pink panel, and then to my card base, which is 110lb cardstock. Using gold foil, I foiled the sentiment from the Mini Sincere Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate and Die set, trimmed it out, and adhered it to my card using foam tape for dimension. To finish up, I added some PinkFresh Studio Jewels Mix to the larger flowers, because I thought some bling was in order!

For my last project, I die cut the two largest Elliptical Ovals Dies from black and white cardstock and glued those together, and then glued those to a black splattered panel. I then die cut the dress portions of the Paper Coutour Dress Dies from black cardstock, and the bow and hanger portions using glitter cardstock, and adhered those together. I again used the flowers and leaves from the Heart Swans Die set to cut those out of white cardstock.

I adhered the dress to the ovals using foam tape, and adhered the white flowers around the ovals using a combination of glue and foam tape. I then attached my panel to a panel of black cardstock to pull all of the black elements together, and then to a card base. Using silver foil, I hot foiled the sentiment from the Mini Sincere Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate and Die set, trimmed it down and glued it to the bow of the dress. To finish this card, I added some silver embellishments to the flowers for some added bling.

That does it for my projects featuring the Truly Yours Collection from Spellbinders! I hope you enjoyed them, and I hope they inspire you to get crafty!

Spellbinders Deer Friend

Sweet Cardlets Collection II by Becca Feeken

Hello! Hello! I was super excited to be able to play with the new Deer Friend Glimmer Hot Foil Plate and Die Set from Becca Feeken! This is such a cute little set and made the sweetest card. Let’s get started!

To begin, I trimmed a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock, and heated up the Glimmer Hot Foil System. Using the Quick Trimmer, I trimmed some strips of Champagne Foil so that I could use the largest of the Essential Glimmer Rectangles set. Yana Smakula’s hinge method of foiling works GREAT, so I used that to position the foil strips and popped it on to hot foil. While everything was already hot, I went ahead and foiled all of the elements of the Deer Friend set.

I used Copic Markers E000, E00, YG11, YG13, RV00 and RV10 to color the deer and florals, and used the coordinating dies in the set to cut them out. I also used the Simply Perfect Layered Blooms Set to cut some florals and leaves from pinks and green cardstock. I went ahead and adhered the floral pieces together using Craft Tacky Glue.

To assemble the card, I used foam tape for the sentiment and the deer in the bottom right corner, and used a combination of glue and foam tape to adhere the blooms and leaves in the upper left corner. I had a bloom left over, so I tucked it down around the sentiment. I added PinkFresh Studio Jewels to the centers of the flowers, because every card needs bling! Am I right?!?! I attached my panel to a Neenah 110lb card base to finish it up.

I hope you enjoyed this project! I think this deer is the cutest and really enjoyed playing with it! Don’t forget to check out the entire Sweet Cardlets II Collection from Becca Feeken. There’s other super cute stuff in this collection!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Stay awesome!

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!
