Pinkfresh Studio April Stamp and Die Release Blog Hop!



Welcome, fellow Pinkfresh Studio fans!  I am so honored and excited to be participating in Pinkfresh's April Stamp and Die Release Blog Hop!  This release is so fresh, fun, and full of amazing new products.  If you're hopping along, you've arrived from the amazing Lea Lawson's blog.   If you're jumping in here, you can start back at the Pinkfresh blog for all of the details.  I also have the entire blog hop list at the end of this post so you don't miss any of the inspiration!



I created my first two cards using Pinkfresh's new Partial Cut Bouquet & A Bow die set.  This set makes creating sweet and simple cards such a breeze.  I started my first card by die cutting my bouquet out of white cardstock and added some horizontal score lines for interest.  I then stamped my sentiment from Pinkfresh's Say It With Florals stamp set - I thought this was just perfect for this sweet little bouquet.  I colored the little  blooms in rainbow colors using Copic markers, adding an extra bloom in the back of each flower for some dimension and some sparkly gems in the centers.  I die cut the bow from pretty teal wool felt and added stitching around the border - I love the soft texture that wool felt lends to cards.  For even more added texture, I mounted the panel on top of some teal-colored burlap.




This sweet card came together so easily that I quickly decided to make another in more subtle hues.  I die cut my bouquet again from white cardstock and added another layer of flowers to create a fuller bouquet.  I again stamped my sentiment from the Say It With Florals stamp set.  I die cut extra flowers from white glitter paper for some sparkle, colored the stems and leaves with Copic markers, and finished each flower with a little gem.  After adding a peach-colored felt bow, I added some gold stitching around the perimeter of my panel.  I mounted it onto a peach-colored card base to finish the card.



For my next card, I used the new Hanging Florals Stamp Set.  This set is so lovely and as soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to add stitching to all the pretty florals.



 I started my card by stamping my image in Copic-friendly ink (in this case, Memento Gray Flannel Ink) and coloring the flowers and leaves with Copic markers.  I then started my stitching by poking holes along the stamp lines and doing a simple backstitch along the holes in coordinating thread colors.



I stitched the circular lines using metallic gold thread.  Although the stamp set has an adorable bow image, I decided to add a bow using the bow die from the Partial Cut Bouquet & A Bow die set.  I stitched the perimeter of the panel and mounted it on top of a pool-colored card base onto which I had adhered a pretty grosgrain ribbon.


I hope you enjoyed these card projects!  I'll be sharing some additional inspiration throughout the week and I hope you stop back.  The next stop on the blog hop is Mindy Eggen!
