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.


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.

  1. Beautiful cards, Channin! I love the color combinations and the great explanation on how you ink blended all of the foliage! Just beautiful!

  2. Hi, Channin – Love the blanket stitch square card. I just put the rectangular version in the cart and now I think I better add those squares. I was also eyeing that heart die…. I love how you added things from earlier releases to complement the new items. Great cards, both!
