Pinkfresh Studio’s October Slimline Release

Pinkfresh Studio’s October Slimline Release

Hello friends!! Today we are celebrating Pinkfresh Studio’s newest slimline release!! I won’t lie, I have definitely been bitten by the slimline bug!! It’s like a new canvas for us cardmakers to play with!! And Pinkfresh Studio just added to the fun with a bunch new slimline STENCILS, STAMPS, and DIES!!

I have a colorful card to share featuring the new Gradiating Stripes Stencil!

To create this card I first taped the Gradiating Stripes Stencil over the front of a white slimline card base (7 1/4″ x 8 5/8″; scored at 3 5/8″). I then ink blended over the stencil with a rainbow of Pinkfresh inks (Sparkling Rose, Passion Fruit, Apricot, Lemon Whip, Key Lime, Meadow, Mermaid Cove, Summer Shower, Seaside, Blue Jay, & Lavender). I did mask off the stripes above and below the stripes I was ink blending to ink blend them different colors.

Once I finished ink blending all the stripes, I then cleaned the stencil, repositioned it over the card front but this time off-set so I could now ink blend over most of the remaining white areas. With the stencil in place I then ink blended with the same rainbow of inks. Once I finished ink blending, I then repositioned the stencil for a third time to ink blend any remaining white areas. When I had the entire card front ink blended I then stamped it with the new Be Courageous Stamp Set in Detail Black ink. I then stamped a sentiment from the set on the front in Detail Black as well.

Next, I die cut three “friend’s” out of black cardstock using the Phrase Builder – Hello Die Set. I then adhered the “friend’s” together to create a dimensional sentiment and then adhered it to the front of my card. I then finished my card by adding black enamel accents.

Spellbinders October Large Die of the Month

Spellbinders October Large Die of the Month

Hello friends!! I’m popping in while my girls are taking a lunch break to share a couple of cards I created with Spellbinder’s new Large Die of the Month!!

This die set is incredible and very versatile! I created two cards, one fall themed and the other Christmas, but I believe with a few simple tweaks you could easily create Valentines, spring, or even summer themed cards as well!!

To create these cards I first scored two light gray panels at every 1/2″ to create the look of siding and then adhered them to the front of two A2 top-folding card bases. Next, I die cut all my columns and top out of white cardstock. I then die cut the doors, bottom/base, door mats, and window panes out of colored cardstock. I then adhered my door mats together and also adhered a scrap of light blue cardstock or cream cardstock to the backside of my doors.

Next I created a frosted window for my Christmas scene by trimming a piece of vellum to fit behind the window pane and then sprinkling white embossing powder over the vellum, then heat setting with a heat gun from behind so not to blow the embossing powder off. I then adhered the window pane on top of the vellum and then adhered it and my second window pane to the doors.

I then added foam tape to the back side of my door, columns, door frame top and bottom/base and then adhered them onto the front of my cards. Next, I adhered my door mats and then die cut the mail slot and door handle out of mirrored gold cardstock and then adhered to the doors. I then created two little envelopes out of white cardstock and popped them into the slot.

Next, I created my wreaths and garland. For the Christmas card, I die cut the wreath twice out of light green and dark green cardstock. I then adhered the light and dark green wreaths together to create 2 wreaths. I then cut one of the wreaths in half, then positioned the two halves over the frame of the door, trimmed off any excess and then adhere them as well as the intact wreath to my card front with foam tape. Next I created six poinsettias out of red cardstock and adhered them to my wreath and garland to complete my card.

For my fall card, I die cut four wreaths out of white cardstock. I then copic colored each one of the leaves in the wreathes with fall colors and then adhered two wreaths together to create two stacked wreaths. Next, I cut one of my stacked wreaths in half, trimmed off any excess, and then adhered them to the top of my door with foam tape. I also added a tail ends to my garland with the excess that I trimmed off from the halves. I then finished my card by adhering my second wreath to my door and adding a stacked “best” created from Kraft cardstock to my card front.

I hope you enjoyed my cards!! Thank you so much for stopping by!

My first card features the beautiful Layered Sunflowers Combo.

To create this card I first stamped the outline for the sunflowers in Memento Tuxedo Black onto white cardstock. I then stamped all the layers or the floral grouping in several inks. When I had finished stamping all the layering I then added some details with copic markers and then die cut the images out with the matching dies.

Next, I die cut an A2 panel of white cardstock with the Cloudscape Panel Die. I then ink blended the sections with several Distress Oxides. Once I finished ink blending I then adhered the panel and all the sections to the front of an A2 top-folding card base. Next, die cut an A2 panel of patterned paper from the Half-Half Dots – Christmas Paper Pad with a die from the Additional A2 Layers Die Set to create a frame.

I then die cut one more frames from white cardstock and then adhered the patterned frame on top. Next, I adhered the stacked frame to the card front and then adhered several colored leaves to the frame. Lastly I finished the frame by adhering the remaining images to the card front with liquid glue or foam adhesive.

My last card for the day features the super sweet Holiday Cheese Combo.

To create this card I first stamped several images from the Holiday Cheese Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black onto white cardstock. Next, I copic colored all my images and also splattered the mug with Distress Ink to make it look like a tin cup.

When I finished coloring all my images I then die cut them with the matching dies. I then created my background by trimming a sheet of patterned paper from the Half-Half Dots – Christmas Paper Pad and adhered onto the front of an A2 top-folding Kraft card base.

Next, I trimmed an A2 panel of wood grain cardstock down about a third and then adhered to the top of the patterned paper. Lastly, I finished the card by adhering all the copic colored images with foam adhesive.

Honey Bee Stamps Autumn Afternoon Release and Blog Hop

Honey Bee Stamps Autumn Afternoon Release and Blog Hop

Hello friends!! Today is day 2 of Honey Bee Stamps’ Autumn Afternoon Release Blog Hop and GIVEAWAY!! If you haven’t seen the first day here’s a link because I know you definitely don’t want to miss out on seeing any of the incredible inspiration!!

I have a couple cards and a VIDEO to share so let’s dive right on in! My first card features the sweet Apple Barrel Honey Cuts as well as the Blessed Honey Cuts and Stamp Set.

Blessed Apple Barrel Card

To create this card I first die cut the barrel out of textured woodgrain cardstock. I then die cut the hoops out of dark gray cardstock and then three sets of apples and leaves out of white cardstock. Next, I ink blended the barrel with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and then the apples with several combinations of distress ink (Red: Abandoned Coral, Barn Door, Aged Mahogany; Yellow: Mustard Seed, Abandoned Coral, Tattered Straw; Green: Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn) When I finished the apples I then ink blended the leaves in Mowed Lawn and Lucky Clover.

Next, I ink blended “blessed” die cut with the smallest die from the Blessed Honey Cuts die set in Abandoned Coral, Barn Door, and Aged Mahogany. I then adhered a leaf to each of the apples, the hoops onto the barrel and the “blessed” onto a shadow layer die cut out of white cardstock with the second largest die from the Blessed Honey Cuts die set. Next, I arranged the apples into a mound then used a piece of low-tack tape to hold them and the barrel in place, turned them all over and added foam adhesive to the backside.

I then stamped a sub-sentiment in Barn Door and Aged Mahogany using the Blessed Stamp Set then trimmed it down to a strip. Next, trimmed a sheet of pattern paper from the Hot Tropics Paper Pad down to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and then adhered it to the front of an A2 top-folding card base. Next, I removed the backing of the foam tape and adhered the apple barrel to the card front. I then adhered the “blessed” onto the barrel and then finished the card by adhering the sub-sentiment with foam adhesive.

My next card features the beautiful Sweet Sunflowers stamps and dies as well as the fun Hexi Slimline Cover Plate Top and Base!

To create this card I first stamped several sunflowers and leaves from the Sweet Sunflowers Stamp Set in Versafine Onyx Black ink onto Bristol smooth paper. I then watered colored the images in with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Once I had finished coloring my flowers and leaves in I then die cut them with the matching dies.

Next, I die cut two slimline panels, one with the Hexi Slimline Cover Plate TOP and the other with the Hexi Slimline Cover Plate BASE. I then adhered the two together and then adhered them to the front of a Kraft slimline card base (7 1/4″ x 8 1/2″; scored at 3 5/8″).

Next, I stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Sweet Sunflowers Stamp Set onto black cardstock and then die cut it with the matching die. I then adhered the flowers and leaves to the card front with either liquid glue or foam adhesive to vary the dimension and then finished the card by adhering the sentiment with foam adhesive.
