Pinkfresh Studio May Essentials Release Blog Hop



Hello and welcome to Pinkfresh Studio May 2019 Essentials Release Blog Hop!!! You've arrived here froRebecca Luminarias's blog, if you're following the blog hop order. In case you're lost on the way or want to start over, please hop over to Pinkfresh Studio blog!

I'm so thrilled to be a part of this special blog hop! Pinkfresh Studio has been introducing awesome products every Month and this time it's no exception! 6 unique Essentials die sets, Jewel and Crystal mixes are debuting today!

I had the pleasure to play with the new pretty dies and some beautiful floral stamp sets by Pinkfresh Studio and made three cards to share with you for today's blog hop.

My first card is featuring Pretty Frames 2 die and Blooming Bouquet stamp set. I also used one frame die from Fancy Label Frames die set for my sentiment. Pretty Frames 2 die is a coverplate die which cuts several frames in various shapes. 


I stamped the bouquet image from Blooming Bouquet  set on a Neenah solar white cardstock panel in black Memento ink. I colored the image using Copic markers and then gold heat embossed the image.
I cut it using the matching die and set it aside.


To create the background I softly ink blended the panel using Distress inks in pink, orange and yellow shades. I splattered clear water and dabbed it off with a paper towel to add some texture. I also splattered white opaque ink on the panel and let it dry. After the panel was dry I dry embossed it with Pretty Frames 2 die. I cut the dotted frame using the same die from some white cardstock and from a white fun foam to stack them together.


The sentiment is from Blooming Bouquet set as well. I cut a mini label using a die from Fancy Label Frames set and stamped the sentiment. I ink blended the edge of the label in the same colors I used for the background. I tied the bouquet with golden thread, made a bow and added the sentiment label to it. I then assembled the card as shown in the picture. I finished off the card by adding a red rhinestone onto the bow.


The second card is showcasing Braided Circles die set and Hanging Florals stamp set. I used the outer part of the dies to make the front panel.


I started off by white heat embossing the floral cluster from Hanging Florals set. I colored it with
Zig brush markers and cut it using the matching die. I cut off the ring part of the image to have the floral cluster.


To create the front panel I colored a watercolor paper panel using ink smooshing technique. I used blue, pink and purple DIs. Clear water splatters and opaque white ink splatters were added on the panel for some texture. After the panel was completely dry I cut the panel using three outer dies from Braided Circles die set and dry embossed the largest circle.


The sentiment is from Just a Little Lovely stamp set. I heat embossed it on the white cardbase in black. I then foam mounted the front panel and added the floral cluster on it using some foam adhesives. I finished off the card by scattering some iridescent sequins.


Next card was made using Lacey Edgers1 die set and Just a Little Lovely stamp set.


This time I chose the colored pencils as my coloring medium. I stamped the floral cluster from Just a Little Lovely stamp set in white pigment ink on Toned Gray paper and colored the image using Luminance and Holbein colored pencils.


After the coloring was done I dry embossed it using the matching die and cut both ends of the image. I also cut the left edge of the panel using one of Lacey Edgers1 die set.  I white heat embossed the sentiment from Just a Little Lovely set as well onto the colored panel. 


I then adhered the panel on a black cardbase. I raised both ends of the floral cluster using foam adhesives. I filled the little holes of the lacey edge with shimmer Pico embellisher and crystal Stickles to add some shimmer and sparkle. I finished off the card by adding white splatters and a few pink and clear rhinestones onto the card.


That's it from my side. I hope I was able to show you the beauty of the new Essentials products!

Your cards are too pretty! :) I love how each of them turned out. I need to do more coloring combined with heat embossing. I just love how it looks.

I love the use of just the one frame on your first card - such great versatility of the dies. And I never think to color on colored cardstock - the pencil coloring on the gray paper is gorgeous! Thanks for the idea!

Gorgeous card ideas for using the different new dies from this release. The Pretty Frames 2, with different designs that can layer together is a brilliant idea, and is at the top of my wishlist.

Unknown said...

I just adored the soft watercolored background on the second card, and your coloring of the Hanging Florals stamp set, plus the use of some of the braided circle dies. What a gorgeous card! The Pretty Frame of your first card can hardly contain the gold embossed stamp from the Blooming Bouquet set, and speaks of richness and life! I also loved the edges on your third card! Thanks for all your great ideas! Margaret R

Dots said...

Such beautiful cards. Great framing and edges. Thanks for inspiring!
