Pinkfresh Studio January Stamp & Die Release Blog Hop


Hello lovelies,

I'm so excited for my first Pinkfresh Studio blog hop! You should have arrived here from the wonderful Julia Stainton's blog!

I love everything Pinkfresh Studio makes and the stamps and dies in this release are no different! There's so many to choose from, I'm sure you'll find something you love too!

I'll share 6 cards today because, well, I created a lot as soon as I got my DT package - I wanted to try everything right away (didn't manage)!

I hope you'll like them!
Without further ado:



All finished cards are 4.25x5.5" top folding cards. On the first one I used a couple of different sets. The background I created with a foliage stamp from the Bird with Flowers set. I just stamped the image multiple times starting at varying heights so that the background looks more random. The flowers are a part of the Fleur 1 set. I stamped a few on watercolor paper, die cut them using the coordinating die set and used some of my Distress Markers to add color. The Believe sentiment is from the Word Series: Believe stamp and die set. I stamped this with embossing ink on blue card stock and embossed it with white embossing powder. 

All new sets are now available online at Pinkfresh Studio, so be sure to check them out!



On this second card I used a bigger flower stamp from the same Fleur 1 set. I left these black and white and die cut them using the coordinating dies. The strips I stamped using a stem stamp from the Bird with Flowers set. The sentiment is from the Word Series: Dream set; I embossed this with black embossing powder. 




One of my favorite cards must be this one, because I just love this blue! I didn't think of it at the time, but in retrospect it reminds me of the Indigo Hills collection! I used several stamps from the Fleur 1 set, I arranged them on my stamp platform and stamped them in two corners of my card. I then colored these in with my blue Distress Marker. The sentiment is from the Tealightful Day set and I used the same blue Distress Marker to color the stamp.




I wanted to stamp the same image on different color card stock and color them in with my color pencils (a mix of Prismacolor and Polychromos) to see what they look on different backgrounds. My boyfriend likes the dark background - normally he doesn't care about my work, but he actually mentioned he likes that, ha!  

So first I used a light grey ink pad to stamp a variety of flowers I arranged on my stamp platform. These flowers are all from the Fleur 2 set. I then colored these, and to add some interest I stamped a second layer of flowers on top, this time using only embossing powder.

Both sentiments are from the Bloom & Grow set.




On the last card I am sharing today I used the wonderful Bouquet of Hearts stamp set. I just love this image so much! I stamped it on watercolor paper using black ink, then colored it using watercolors. The sentiment is also from this set. At this point it was all too white for me (if you know my scrapbook layouts, you know I have a problem with white :D), so I added polka dots to the background using a black marker.



Now for the fun part!

  8. WOW!! And I mean WOW, all of your cards are beautiful but the one that speaks to me the most is the blue flowers on the white. It reminds me of my grandmother's China pattern which I always adored as a child. Thank you for the happy memory you brought to me today

    1. That card was all my friends' favourite too, funny because it is the simplest of all of these! I too love that blue - it reminds me of the Pinkfresh Indigo Hills collection! I'm happy I could put a smile on our face today! I love memories of my grandma too <3

  68. I absolutely love your cards! So many pretty creations. You must have a very steady hand and great eyesight to create the dot background... it's wonderful. Thanks for sharing the tip of 2nd layer stamping with just embossing powder. Great idea!

    1. Haha! I actually have very bad eyesight but yeah I know what you mean, I do often just eyeball things. But it is really not perfect, I mean the dots are not spaced evenly at all, nor are they the same shape and size! I'm not bothered by imperfections though! Thank you so much for your kind words! X

  69. You hand-dotted that background?!?! I'm so impressed. I realize that's like the least important thing about this post, but I can't believe you got everything so even! I think my favorite card is the "with all my heart" in blues. I just love a good monochrome, and that is a fantastic monochrome. So beautiful and delicate. Thank you for sharing all these different ideas; I love the variety you've come up with!
