There's a ton of inspiration on this hop today and some stamp giveaways to be won! Stop by my Instagram account or The Ton's to start the Instagram hop! 

I've made a card featuring Noted Peonies and Basic Stripes stamp set. 



I stamped the three layers of pink peony in Orchid Collection and the purple one in Soft AmethystIris Blooms and Grape CrushI stamped the leaves using Pewter collection and Crystal Garden collection and fussy cut all the images.


To create the background I first white heat embossed the Basic Stripes on a purple cardstock. I mounted it on a white cardbase and foam mounted the wavy panels I cut from some textured white cardstock. The sentiment from Noted Peonies was stamped on the white panel in Noir.


I arranged the peony flowers and leaves on the card as shown in the picture and added some sequins from Lilac Blossoms Couture Mix.

The Ton November 2019 Release Day 2


Hello and welcome to The Ton November 2019 Release Day 2 !

Did you enjoy the reveal of The Ton November 2019 Release Day 1 ? If you missed out on yesterday's post, please click here.

Four clear stamp sets are debuting today. The Coming Up Morning Glories is a cluster of three large morning glory flowers and some bold sentiments. Transformation Hummingbird is another gorgeous design inspired by Transformation set from our Fall 2019 Release. The Floral Alphas and Layered Floral Alphas bundle set include the uppercase letters embellished with pretty floral elements.


 



* The new items are available for purchase NOW!
* New release orders will begin to ship on November 15th.


Today I have two cards to share with you. My first card is showcasing Coming Up Morning Glories set. 



I stamped the Coming Up Morning Glories  image in a light colored ink on a watercolor paper panel  and colored it using Zig brush markers. I blended the colors with a clear glitter pen to add shimmer and sparkle! I colored the center of the flowers with a opaque white ink and added a little bit of pink to the background. 


The bold sentiment from the same stamp set was heat embossed in gold on some vellum and added to the colored panel. The small sentiment was stamped directly on the panel in Noir. I cut the left side of the colored panel and foam mounted it on a navy cardbase on which I stamped Basic Stripes background in Grape Crush. I finished off the card with some Medallion Gold sequins. 



Next card is showing Transformation Hummingbird. For this card I used the digital image but it is in the same size like the clear stamp. 


I printed the Transformation Hummingbird on a Neenah solar white paper and colored it using Copic markers. I chose teal, navy and gray to color the hummingbird and coral color for the morning glory flowers. I added details to the image using Polychromos colored pencils. After the coloring was completed I foiled the image in gold and fussy cut. 


To create the background I white heat embossed Morning Glory Greetings two times on a watercolor paper panel and watercolored the image in coral and teal. I colored the background in Payne's gray and gold and gold heat embossed the sentiment from  Coming Up Morning Glories set on it. 
I cut the background panel using a Double Stitched Rectangle die and mounted it flat on a cardbase. I added the hummingbird using some foam adhesives and scattered three Medallion Gold sequins to finish off the card.

Seize the Birthday #178 - Off the Edge

Hello and happy Thursday, everyone! 

It's Seize the Birthday Thursday today and we have a new Toppings Option for you! This time my lovely team mate JoAnn chose the Topping and it is....

OFF THE EDGE

I stamped a little girl sitting on a branch which is coming off the edge! This cutie is from Sweet Smiles (30-349) set by Penny Black.


I started off by cutting a Bristol Smooth paper panel using the largest die from Leaf Stitched Frames (51-552) die set. I made it into my front panel by tilting on a A2 cardbase and cut the excessive parts.
I stamped the image in a black pigment ink and colored it using Zig brush markers.


I ink blended a white cardbase in Tumbled Glass DI so that the color peeks from underneath of the front panel. The sentiment from Special Sentiments (30-574) set was stamped in a black ink on the cardbase and the front panel was foam mounted on it.


That's it from me!
Now it's your turn to play along! As you know you may enter any birthday themed project into our gallery, if you don't want to take the topping!

Please stop by Seize the Birthday blog for more inspiration from our surprise party guest Annie and my team mates!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful Thursday :)!

The Ton November 2019 Release Day 1


Hello and welcome to The Ton November 2019 Release Day 1 !

For The Ton's November 2019 Release, Effie has designed 12 new stamps (8 clear stamps and 4 cling stamps).

We're so excited to introduce you four clear stamps and four cling stamps today. We have two stamp sets featuring cute layering chickadees, Winter Chickadee and Chickadee Greetings. Noted Peonies set includes two large peony flowers in three layers along with two leaves. Morning Glory Park background is a cling stamp filled with large morning glory flowers. We also have Morning Glory Greetings set with a small morning glory cluster image. And three background cling stamps are debuting today; Basic Stripes, Galeria Print and Mini Dots.






* The new items will be available for purchase Tomorrow!
* New release orders will begin to ship on November 15th.


Today I have three cards to share with you. My first card is featuring Winter Chickadee stamp set.


I started by cutting the shapes of the chickadee and the branch using coordinating cut file from a heavy weight white cardstock panel. I stamped the three layered chickadee using Pewter collection and Amber Citrine. For the branch I used Warm Hazelnut and Aspen Cocoa, and for the berries Valentine Red and Pink Derby.


To create the background I white heat embossed some snowflakes from Blizzard Hugs stamp set on a watercolor paper panel and ink blended it in Cali Blue, Soft Amethyst, Amber Citrine and Warm Hazelnut. I cut the background panel using a Double Stitched Rectangle die, stamped the sentiment in Grape Crush and mounted it on a kraft cardbase. I then foam mounted the branch and the chickadee on it. I drew white snow on the berries and the branch using a white gel pen and added some Glass Slippers sequins to finish off the card.


For the second card I chose Morning Glory Park background cling stamp. As I haven't gotten the stamp in time I used the digital image. 


I printed the Morning Glory Park background image on a purple cardstock. I then colored the flowers and the background using Holbein colored pencils. After the coloring was done, I cut the panel using Double Stitched Rectangle die.


To make a camouflaging sentiment I cut "hugs" from the colored panel using Love and Hugs word plate die. I also cut it from some peach fun foam to raise the sentiment. I cut "sending" from Glossy fine silver adhesive paper and from some white cardstock and stacked them together.


I mounted the colored panel on a cream cardbase, inlaid the "hugs" and glued the "sending" on it. 
To embellish my card I scattered some sequins from Lilac Blossoms Couture mix


The next one is showcasing Noted Peonies stamps set and Mini Dots background cling stamp. 


I stamped the peonies and leaves in three layers. I used Peony Collection for the pink peony and  Soft Amethyst, Iris Blooms, Grape Crush for the purple peony. I stamped the leaves using Pewter collection and Crystal Garden collection. I fussy cut all the images and set them aside. You can use the coordinating cut files to cut the images.


I stamped Mini Dots on a white cardstock panel in an embossing ink and heat embossed it partially in Rose Gold and in white. I added soft colors to the panel by ink blending Ballet Slippers and Soft Amethyst.


I cut the background panel in a slightly smaller size than A2 using a Double Stitched Rectangle die and foam mounted it on a white cardbase. I then arranged the flowers and leaves as shown in the picture foam mounting some of the petals for some dimension. The sentiment was cut using Love and Hugs word plate die from some glossy fine transparent glitter paper. To finish off I added some sequins from Pink Diamond Couture mix to the card.


That's it from my side for today! I hope I could inspire you with my cards!

The Flower Challenge #38 - Add Spots or Stripes

Hello everyone! 

It's time for a new challenge at The Flower Challenge! The cue words for November Challenge is 
"ADD SPOTS OR STRIPES"


We are being sponsored by Top Flight Stamps this month. They are kindly giving our winner an e-gift card for $25. Please check out there website as they have some amazing crafty things there.

I've made a simple floral card using some of the goodies by Pinkfresh Studio.


I started by making the background panel with five watercolored stripes. I simply drew the lines using Pinkfresh Studio Liquid watercolor . First I drew a line using clear water and then added Sunshine, Clementine and Bubble Gum to it. I let the water work to blend the watercolor. I repeated this five times and let the watercolor paper panel dry.


I then cut the pattern from the left side of the panel using one of the Lacey Edgers 1 die set.
I stamped the sentiment from Folk Hummingbird stamp set in a black pigment ink on the background panel and foam mounted it on a yellow cardbase.


I then arranged the bouquet using the floral elements I had in my stash. This little flowers were from Lovely Blossoms stamp set, cut using the coordinating dies.

I adhered the stems on the background panel and the flower head using some foam adhesives for some dimension. I finished off the card with a green button and a yellow bow.


Hope you like my DT card! Will you play along? I'd love to see your creations in The Flower Challenge gallery 😄!

Pinkfresh Studio November 2019 Challenge

Hello and happy Sunday everyone!

It's time for a new monthly challenge at Pinkfresh Studio! For November we have "Thankful" as the theme of the month with an elegant color combination.



I used a die from Classic Words die set to make the sentiment and Dainty Blossoms die set to represent the coral and aubergine colors. 


I ink blended a heavyweight solar white cardstock panel in  Coral Reef and Regal Kiss and die cut the flowers using Dainty Blossoms die set. I set them aside and prepared the background.


To create the background I masked the sides of a white cardbase and ink blended the bottom part in Storm. I splattered white opaque ink and gold watercolor on it and let it dry.  

I cut the words "thank you" using Classic Words die set from a gold foil cardstock and from some white cardstock. I glued them together for more dimension.


I added a golden nest to the left bottom part of the cardbase, foam mounted the flowers and the sentiment as shown in the picture. I finished off the card by scattering some pink Jewels


That's it from me! Hope you like my card!

Make a paper project with Pinkfresh Studio product as the focus and play along! There is also an awesome prize! Please stop by Pinkfresh Studio Monthly Challenge page for more inspiration and for the challenge rules!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your weekend!
Hugs,
