Pinkfresh Studio’s January Release Blog Hop and Giveaway

Hello crafty friends!! Pinkfresh Studio’s January release is NOW AVAILABLE!!! Holy smokes you guys, this release is incredible!! There are so many new products and just a incredible variety of styles too!! I’m especially loving the new layering stencils and hot foil plates.

My card today features one of the new layering stencil sets, the Folk Art Slimline Layering Stencils.

To create this card I first die cut and slimline card front out of light pink cardstock using the Slim Diagonal Stitched Rectangles Die Set. Then with the Folk Art Slimline Layering Stencils I ink blended the pattern onto the front panel with several Pinkfresh Studio Inks (Sparkling Rose, Passion Fruit, Berrylicious, Olive, Mermaid Cove and Evergreen).

Once I finished ink blending the images I then added shadows with a light pink (RV11) copic maker and highlights with a white gel pen. Next, I adhered the panel onto an slimline card base.

Lastly, I finished my card by stamping a sentiment from the Brighter Days Stamp Set in Passion Fruit ink onto white cardstock, trimming the sentiment down to a strip and then adhering it to the card front with foam adhesive.

Hero Art’s January 2022 My Monthly Hero Release and Blog Hop

Hero Art’s January 2022 My Monthly Hero Release and Blog Hop

It’s release day!! Starting today the newest Hero Art’s My Monthly Hero Kit and add-ons are now available!! If you have been following along with the countdown then you might have a pretty good grasp of this month’s theme. I would describe it as sort of romantic, magical and ethereal; in fact it reminds me of one of my favorite novels growing up, The Secret Garden.

Contents:

  • 6″ x 8″ Clear Stamp Set
  • 3 Coordinating Frame Cuts
  • 4.25″ x 5.5″ Fancy Cover Plate Die
  • 1 Key Fancy Die
  • 4 Ink Cubes (Key Lime Fizz, Taffy, Green Apple, Cup O’ Joe)
  • Red Iridescent Gems

Value: $80.00: Cost: $34.99

My first two cards feature the January My Monthly hero kit. These two cards really showcase the beautiful and ornate dies included in this month’s kit.

For the shaker card I first ink blended the front of an A2 top-folding white card base with Taffy, Fruit Punch and Lemon Drop Reactive Inks. I then die cut an A2 panel of satin gold cardstock with the included cover plate die. I then adhered an A2 panel of acetate to the backside of the panel. Next, I added foam adhesive to the blended card front, being careful to keep the foam to the edges so it wouldn’t be visible through the key hole window. I then filled the well with sequins from the Champagne Sequin Mix and then adhered the gold panel on top.

Next, I die cut a key out of a scrap of the satin gold cardstock and then adhered it to the card front. Lastly, I stamped and gold heat-embossed a sentiment from the included stamp set, fussy cut it out and adhered it to the card front with foam adhesive.

For my second card I first created a simple mask my die cutting a piece of copy paper with the cover plate die. I then placed the mask over an A2 top-folding white card front and ink blended with Taffy, Fruit Punch and Lemon Drop Reactive Inks.

Next I die cut two keys, one out of satin gold cardstock and the other out of white. I then ink blended the little heart negative from the white key with Taffy and Fruit Punch inks and then adhered the gold key and the tiny blended heat to the card front with foam adhesive. Lastly I stamped and gold heat-embossed a sentiment, fussy cut it out and adhered it the card from with foam adhesive.

My last card features a few add-on products; specifically, the Chain Linked Fence Bold Prints, Locks Fancy Dies, as well as the Key to My Heart stamps and dies.

To create this card I first stamped and gold heat-embossed the Chain Linked Fence Bold Prints onto the front of an A2 top-folding white card base. I then ink blended over the card front with Lemon Drop, Fruit Punch, Taffy and Galaxy Purple Reactive Inks.

Next, I stamped and gold heat embossed a couple keys from the Key to My Heart stamp set onto matte gold cardstock. I then die cut the keys out with the matching dies and then set them aside. Next, I die cut several locks using the Locks Fancy Dies out of satin gold cardstock.

I then adhered the keys and locks to the card front with foam adhesive. Lastly, I finished the card with a gold heat-embossed sentiment from the Key to My Heart stamp set.

GIVEAWAY:

Hero Arts will give away a $50 gift card, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, January 16th at 11:59pm Pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.

My first card I’m sharing features the beautiful Sunrise Mountain Stencil Quad and the indispensable Oversized Thank You – Print Die Set.

To create this card I first ink blended an A2 panel of white cardstock with the Sunrise Mountain Stencil Quad and several Distress Oxides (Evergreen Bough, Shaded Lilac, Blueprint Sketch, Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, and Ripe Persimmon). I then die cut the panel with one of the sentiment dies from the Oversized Thank You – Print Die Set.

I then die cut a scrap of white craft foam with the same sentiment die. Next, I adhered the cardstock and craft foam “thank you” together and then adhered the panel and the sentiment to the front of an A2 top-folding white card base. Lastly, I finished the card by stamping and white heat-embossing a sentiment from the Special Delivery Sentiments stamp set.

My next card features the Oversized Thank You – Print Die Set again as well as the Small Bouquet Combo and the Vase Variety Die Set.

To create this card I first stamped the bouquet from the Small Bouquet Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black and then copic colored it. After I colored the image I then die cut it out with the matching dies. Next, I die cut a vase using a die from the Vase Variety Die Set out of white cardstock and then glued the flowers and vase together.

I then die cut a sentiment using the Oversized Thank You – Print Die Set out of white cardstock. Next, I stamped a sub-sentiment from the Oversized Thank You Stamp Set in VersaFine Onyx Black onto the front of a A2 top-folding white card base turned on its side. I then finished the card by adhered the flower, vase, and sentiment to the card front with foam adhesive.

My next card features the Stems Die Set, the Special Delivery Die Set and the Postcard Stamp Set.

To create this card I first die cut several flowers and leaves out of colored cardstock. I then die cut two vases out of white cardstock using the Special Delivery Die Set. I then stamped and gold heat-embossed a sentiment from the Postcard Stamp Set onto one of the vases. I then adhered some of the flowers and leaves to the vases and then adhered string to the back side of one and then lastly adhered the two together to create a spinner.

I then die cut the front of an A2 top-folding white card base with a die from the Nesting Ovals Die Set. I then die cut an A2 panel of pattern paper with a die from the Nesting Oval Frames DieI and then adhered the string between the pattern paper panel and the card front. Lastly I finished the card by adhering the oval frame to the card front and another A2 panel of pattern paper to the inside of the card.

My last card features the Stems Die Set and the Postcard Stamp Set once more but in a completely different way.

To create this card I first die cut several flowers and two vases out of white cardstock using the Stems Die Set. I then copic colored the die cuts and then adhered them inside one of the vases. I then adhered the second vase behind but upside down.

Pinkfresh Studio’s November Essentials Release Blog Hop

Pinkfresh Studio’s November Essentials Release Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends!! It’s that exciting time of year, that time of year when Pinkfresh adds a whole bunch of new products to their Essentials line!! I always look forward to the Essentials releases. They are pack with so many versatile dies, dies that I know I will find myself coming back to time and time again!!

For today’s release I have created a couple of cards, both featuring some of the new Essentials dies! These two cards feature a simple technique of filling a window with smaller die cuts to create a dramatic and highly textured focal point but I used the new Essentials Shaker Heart and the Essentials Blanket Stitched Square Die Set to create the window.

To create these cards I first die cut the square frame using the first two Blanket Stitched Square dies and the heart window using the Shaker Heart die set out of white cardstock. Next I added double-sided tape to the backside of the square and heart opening. I then die cut a bunch of foliage using the Garden Wreath Die Set out of white cardstock. Next, I ink blended over the die cuts with several Pinkfresh Studio Inks (Sparkling Rose, Clementine, Lemon Whip, Key Lime, Aquamarine, Summer Shower, and Blue Jay).

When I had finished ink blending over the die cuts I then arranged them on my work surface. When I had all the die cuts in place I then removed the backing on the double-sided adhesive and stuck the frame or the panel to die cuts to pick them up. Next, I added foam adhesive to the frame and the panel and then stuck them down onto either a square or A2 card base.

With my focal point in place I then moved onto my sentiments. I die cut both sentiments (“Hello” and “Celebrate”) out of white cardstock using the Scripted Greetings Die Set. I die cut four Hello’s and two Celebrate’s and then adhered them together. Lastly, I finished my cards by adhering the sentiments onto the card fronts with liquid adhesive.

GIVEAWAYS:

Pinkfresh will be giving away the full release on the Pinkfresh blog & YouTube channel! In addition Pinkfresh will also be giving away a total of TEN $25 gift cards along the hop. As per usual with blog hops – the winners will be picked from the comments.

Pinkfresh Studio’s November Release Blog Hop and Giveaway

Hello crafty friends!! It’s time for a new Pinkfresh Studio release!!! This release has a bit of everything, including stamps, dies, stencils and hot foil plates!!

I have two cards to share, both featuring the Scripted Greeting Dies and the Folk Garden 2 stamps, stencils and dies.

To create these cards I first stamped the outline for the foliage with the Folk Garden 2 Stamp in Tidal Pond. I then colored the flowers and leaves by ink blending over the Folk Garden 2 Layering Stencils with several Pinkfresh inks (Key Lime, Grassy Knoll, Lemon Whip, Marigold & Clementine). Once I finished ink blending I then die cut the images out using the Folk Garden 2 Die.

For my first card I die cut an A2 panel of white cardstock with Essential: Fancy Oval Frame Die. I then arrange several flowers and leaves behind the panel and frame. Once I had my foliage in the right spot, I then picked everything up with a piece of press-n-seal, flipped it over and added foam adhesive to the backside. Next, I removed the backing and then adhered the panel, frame and flowers to an A2 top-folding white card base. I then adhered several of the Peach Fuzz jewels inside the white spaces between foliage.

Next, I die cut three “Hello” out of white cardstock using the Scripted Greeting Dies, I then die cut a shadow for the sentiment out of vellum. Next, I adhered two of the “Hello” together and then adhered them to the vellum shadow. I then finished the sentiment by adhering my last “Hello” on top. Lastly, I finished my card by adhering the sentiment to the card front.

For my second card I first dry embossed the front of an A2 top-folding white card base with the Folk Garden 2 Hot Foil Plate. I then die cut three “Celebrate” outlines out of white cardstock and a shadow layer out of vellum using the Scripted Greetings Dies. I then adheres the “Celebrate” die cuts together in the say manner I assembled the “Hello”.

Next, I arranged my flowers and sentiment and then adhered them to the card front with liquid glue and foam adhesive. I then finished the card by adding some more Peach Fuzz jewels to the flowers.
