Pinkfresh studio great friend

Hello Crafty Friends and welcome back to my blog! I hope you are doing well and having a beautiful day! Today’s project is featuring a favorite product of mine, PinkFresh Studio washi tape! I just can’t get enough! I recently HAD to order three more sets, including this one, Hydrangea and Rose! It’s just so beautiful! All of the washi sets are absolutely gorgeous, and really make for quick, easy and beautiful cards! So let’s get into the details!

I began this project by grabbing a piece of Fluid Hot Press Watercolor paper. This is just the paper that I have on hand. I did some very light ink smooshing using Distress Oxide Spray Spun Sugar, and set it aside to dry.

I went ahead and die cut both of the PinkFresh Stitched Scalloped Rectangles from Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock. I separated the larger of the frames and adhered foam tape to the back of it, as well as, adhering some to the smaller frame. I had already gotten my PinkFresh Hydrangea and Rose washi tape ready to go. I usually do four or five sets at a time and put them all in a baggie so that they are ready when I want to use them. And to do this, I cut a sheet of Neenah 110lb in half lengthwise, adhere the washi and use the coordinating die to cut them.

I trimmed the watercolor panel just smaller than the larger frame and went ahead and adhered those together, and then I adhered the smaller frame in the center. I die cut the PinkFresh Leafy Branch from gold cardstock, because I love adding those extra pops of gold to bring out the gold from the washi tape. I also gold foiled the sentiment using the PinkFresh Perfect Sentiments Hot Foil Plate, along with the coordinating die. When cutting the sentiment, I also cut extra from additional cardstock for stacking purposes.

I adhered the pieces of the sentiment together using liquid glue and began playing around with the placement of everything. I glued the gold leaves first and then arranged everything else atop the leaves and frames using a combination of glue and foam tape. To finish up, I added some PinkFresh Gold Metallic Pearls and adhered everything to my card base, which is Neenah 110lb.

That finishes up this project for today! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope you’ll check out the PinkFresh Studio washi tapes. Very easy to use and oh so great for quick, yet beautiful cards! Have an awesome day and don’t forget to stay awesome!

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!

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!

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!

Chevron Hugs

Hello and welcome back friends! I’m so glad you stopped by! For today’s card I’m using the PinkFresh Studio Nested Chevron stamp and coordinating die to create a rainbow-ish look. I’ve had this set for a little bit, and finally decided to take it for a spin! The pop-out feature of this stamp, any many of their others, offers so many possibilities! To be honest, I wasn’t quite sure if I was going to like it, but dang, it’s pretty awesome! So glad that I went ahead a bought a few of the other sets when I bought this one!

For my rainbow stamping, I chose PinkFresh Studio dye inks in Sparkling Rose, Apricot, Lemon Whip, Fresh Pear, Sky Blue, Ocean Breeze and Soft Lilac. I trimmed a piece of Neenah Classic Crest 80lb cardstock large enough to fit into my Misti and positioned my stamp in the middle of that. You can stamp different sections with different inks at the same time, but since I’m a newbie to these pop-out stamps, I stamped each section individually .. ya know, because I wasn’t really in the mood for messing something up!

This stamp is cool, because it has a frame which allows you to position the pieces correctly and straight .. which I need! So once all of my stamping was done, I die cut my Nested Chevron with the coordinating die. I cut another piece of Neenah 80lb to adhere my Chevron pieces to. I adhered the thin striped pieces to my panel using Craft Tacky Glue, and I adhered the solid stripes to the panel with 3M Foam Tape .. because as we all like to say, dimension is life!

Moving along .. I stamped the new Choose Hope floral image using VersaMark ink on vellum twice, and embossed both of those using Simon Says Stamp Detail White Embossing Powder. Once those were cut with the coordinating die, I then glued those two pieces together and positioned them over my chevron to decide if I was happy with the look.

I decided that the white just wasn’t doing it for me, so I stamped the floral again, embossed it using Ranger Ink Princess Gold Embossing Powder and die cut it. That was so much better! Thank goodness! So I went ahead and adhered the gold floral to the white floral piece.

Back to the die cutting machine I go! I decided to use the Hugs sentiment from the PinkFresh Studio Sending Phrase Builder set, so I cut the shadow three times from Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and the detail sentiment once from Neenah 110lb and once from gold cardstock. While there, I went ahead and cut a few leaves from the new Curvy Leaves set as well. I adhered all of the sentiments together and determined the placement on top of the chevron pattern. Before gluing down the vellum piece, I tucked in some of the Curvy Leaves and adhered those. I then adhered the vellum piece to the chevron panel and the hugs sentiment on top of that. My finished panel was then adhered to my card base, which is Neenah 110lb. Of course you have to have embellishments, so I added a few PinkFresh Studio Crystals Mix.

So there’s my pretty little chevron rainbow-ish card! I hope you like it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty today!

Thanks so much for stopping by and don’t forget to stay awesome!

Hello Lovely Floral

PinkFresh Studio Celebrate

Hey there crafty friends! I hope you are all doing well and staying healthy! I have so much beautiful patterned paper in my stash and sometimes I like incorporating it in to my projects, and today’s card does just that! I recently bought a bunch of patterned paper from PinkFresh Studio, and let me just tell you, they are beautiful!

My card panel on this project is a sheet of patterned paper from the PinkFresh Studio Celebrate 6×6 paper pad. I trimmed it down using the PinkFresh Studio Diagonal Stitched Rectangles set, and added a few white splatters with watered down acrylic paint. The pink splatters were already part of the design on the patterned paper. I thought the Fancy Oval Frame, also from PinkFresh Studio, would look super awesome over the floral design of the paper.

I trimmed the oval frame using Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock. While I was at the die cutting machine, I went ahead and did the rest of my cutting. I cut the Hello Lovely sentiment, which is from the PinkFresh Studio set Hello Phrase Builder, once from gold cardstock from my stash and once from Neenah 110lb cardstock. For the shadow portion of the sentiment, I cut that three times from the 110lb cardstock.

I also cut some leaves from the new Curvy Leaves set from the 110lb. Now for some assembly! I placed 3M Foam Tape on the back of the Fancy Oval Frame and positioned it over the central floral image to determine where I wanted to place my Curvy Leaves. Once I decided that placement, I adhered the leaves to my card panel using Craft Tacky Glue. I then adhered my oval frame over those leaves.

I adhered all of my sentiment shadow pieces together using that same Craft Tacky Glue, as well as adhering the rest of the sentiment pieces together. So much adhering!! Anyhoo, I “glued,” ha ha, see I switched it up there, the Hello sentiment to the card panel and glued the Lovely part of the sentiment to the oval frame. As if you couldn’t tell, I REALLY like dimension! Next, I added my card panel to an additional panel of yellow cardstock from my stash, before adhering that to my card base, which is Neenah Classic Crest 110lbo. And no card is complete without some bling! So, of course, I had to add some jewels from the PinkFresh Studio Jewel Mix to finish it up!

That’s my card for today! All of these PinkFresh Studio elements are new to me, and I can honestly say I’m loving them!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at my card today! I hope it inspires you to get in your crafty space and start creating, whatever that may be!

Stay awesome!
