Pinkfresh Studio Ink Pad Release

Pinkfresh Studio Ink Pad Release

Hello friends!! Today is Pinkfresh Studio’s Ink Pad Release!! I’m so excited!! I love love LOVE these inks and I can’t wait to share my creations with you!!

For today’s blog hop I created a video!! In this video I share my ink swatches, demonstrate several techniques using the new ink pads, and share several finished cards!!

Pinkfresh Ink Pad Release: 3 Techniques and Swatches

Watch below or on my YouTube channel.


I made two styles of swatches for all the ink colors. The first style is for the coin pocket organizational method. I used Waffle Flower’s Color Combos Die to diecut 20 2″ x 2″ squares out of white cardstock.


I then positioned a square stamp from the Color Combos for Inkpads Stamp Set in my MISTI and then stamped all four colors in a color grouping onto one square. I simply rotated the square to stamp one color on each corner of the square. I repeated this process for all the ink color, creating 12 square swatches. On the remaining 8 2″ x 2″ squares I stamped a list using the Bullet List Stamp Set in Versafine Onyx Black. For four of the squares I stamped the list twice so I could label two groups of colors on one square. Once I finished stamping all the lists, I then stamped the corresponding ink colors in the bullet dots and then wrote down the ink names.


I made tags for the second group of swatches. I first stamped the ink colors onto 12 2″ x 2″ squares, diecut with the Color Combos Die, basically repeating the first step for the coin pocket organizational method.


I then diecut 12 tags using the Combo Swatch Tag Die and then stamped the list using the Bullet List Stamp Set at the bottom. I then stamped in the bullet dots, wrote the ink color names and then adhered the stamped 2″ x 2″ stamped squares onto the tag.


I love techniques and I couldn’t wait to try some with these new inks! In the video I demonstrate ink blending, ink smooshing, and faux watercolor stamping! I shared my samples for the first two techniques in my previous posts (ink blending, ink smooshing) but you can get a look at the process as well as the samples in the video. But since my faux watercolor samples are brand spanking new we’ll focus on these cards in this post.


First, I partially inked up the wreath stamp from the Delicate Wreath Stamp Set in Pinkfresh inks. For the green wreath I used Meadow, Grassy Knoll, Olive, & Tidal Pond.


For the orange and purple wreath I used Lemon Whip, Clementine, Persimmon, & Royal Kiss. I started inking my stamp with my lightest ink color, just inking up a portion of the stamp by angling the inkpad.


I then continued to ink up the stamp with the remaining colors being careful not to lose too much of the color that I put down previously.


Once I had the stamp completely inked up I then spritzed the stamp with some water and then stamped it down onto a 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ panel of 110lb white cardstock.


I then splattered the wreath with the same inks I used to stamp it but watered down. Then when the panel dried I stamped a sentiment from the Delicate Wreath Stamp Set with Versafine Onyx Black Ink. I then adhered the panel onto an A2 top-folding card base and then finished the card with clear gems.

That’s it! 🙂 I hope you enjoyed!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!

  12. I only have eyes for the wreaths. They are gorgeous. The new colors are vibrant and come in so many great shades. Your videos are always wonderful.

  13. I like how you did all of your swatches. I love Waffle Flower’s Color Combo set but I haven’t ordered it yet. Your cards are beautiful, very simple but graceful. Very nice.

  14. These are lovely. I really like that blue blending with the silver embossing. It’s gorgeous! The addition of the ribbon on the wreath card makes it look like it’s hanging. I love it!

  16. Love the multi-colored stamping technique! These cards you made are just lovely and show off the beauty of these inks so well!

  17. I’ve never swatched my inks before, but seeing these new inks swatched the way you did, makes me realize I need to do so with the inks I have and then fill in the gaps with these new inks. Love the wreath cards – thanks for the inspiration.

  18. Wow!! What a fun technique, spritzing your ink pad before stamping. I will have to give that a try! Beautiful cards and excellent color combos! TFS 🙂

  19. Definitely see the need for swatching! I’m going to try alternating standard stamping with how you splotched ink while doing up some autumn leaves this afternoon for that crisp and soft effect you acheived. Thx

  20. Love the gorgeous cards. They are beautiful! Especially the first card. And the new inks look amazing. The colours are really great.
