Pinkfresh Studio March Slimline Essentials Release

Pinkfresh Studio March Slimline Essentials Release

Hello friends!! I’m so so excited to be joining the celebration for Pinkfresh Studio’s March Slimline Essentials Release!!

IG-Square

This release is absolutely awesome!! I have recently discovered slimline cards and I have been loving making them! It’s like a whole new canvas for cardmaking!!! The different dimensions allow you to construct scenes and layouts that were never possible before and this has just recharged my creative juices and got my wheels turning big time!! And now having some dies to aid in my designing and creating is just so wonderful!!

I’m so excited to share my cards with you all so let’s dive right in!!

First up is a couple cards I created with the new Slim Fancy Diagonal Stripes Die.

PFS202003_SlimFancyDiagonalStripes_Channin1

For this first card I first die cut the Slim Fancy Diagonal Stripes Die out of white cardstock. I then die cut two leafy frames also out of white cardstock with the Foliage Frame Die. Next I cut the frames up into their four sides and then ink blended the leaves with Mint, Key Lime, Aquamarine, and Olive Pinkfresh Studios Inks.

PFS202003_SlimFancyDiagonalStripes_Channin2

I then tucked the sections of leaves into some of the openings of the Slim Fancy Diagonal Stripes diecut, trimming the sections whenever they were too large. Once I had all the leaves arranged the way I liked I then pulled them out, added some liquid glue to the edge, and then popped them back into the panel diecut.

PFS202003_SlimFancyDiagonalStripes_Channin3

Next, I added a bunch of tiny foam squares to the backside of the panel and then adhered it onto a white slimline (7 1/4″ x 8 5/8″, scored at 3 5/8″ on the 7 1/4″ side) card base. Then stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Floral Vase Stamp Set onto a strip of black cardstock. Lastly I finished the card by adhering the sentiment with foam squares to the card front.

My next card has a very different look from my first but both feature the Slim Fancy Diagonal Stripes Die.

PFS202003_SlimFancyDiagonalStripes2_Channin1

For this card I first ink blended a 3 5/8″ x 8 5/8″ panel of white cardstock with several Pinkfresh Studio inks (Sparkling Rose, Apricot, Lemon Whip, Key Lime, Aquamarine, Summer Showers, Blue Jay, and Stargazer). When I finished I then die cut the panel with the Slim Fancy Diagonal Stripes Dies.

PFS202003_SlimFancyDiagonalStripes2_Channin3

I then ink blended a second 3 5/8″ x 8 5/8″ panel of white cardstock with the same Pinkfresh inks but this time much lighter than I blended the first. I then adhered the diecut panel onto the panel with liquid glue and then adhered both to a slimline card base (7 1/4″ x 8 5/8″, scored at 3 5/8″ on the 7 1/4″ side).

PFS202003_SlimFancyDiagonalStripes2_Channin2

Next, I die cut “hello” out of white cardstock and white craft foam using the Sentiment Suite: Hello die set. I then die cut some vellum with the shadow die from the set and then adhered the cardstock hello to the vellum and then the vellum to the craft foam.

Next, I stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Leafy Decor Stamp Set on a strip of gray cardstock. I then finished the card by adhering the “hello” with liquid glue and the sentiment strip with foam squares to the card front.

And the last card I’m sharing today, is a card I created with the Slim Lacy Edgers Die Set and the Slim Diagonal Stitched Rectangles Die Set.

PFS202003_.SlimLovelyEdges_Channin1JPG

First I die cut seven 3/4″ x 8 5/8″ strips of white cardstock with one of the dies from the Slim Lacy Edgers Die Set. I then ink blended the strips with several Pinkfresh inks (Sparkling Rose, Apricot, Lemon Whip, Key Lime, Aquamarine, Summer Showers, and Blue Jay). Next, I adhered the strips to the front of a slimline card base (7 1/4″ x 8 5/8″, scored at 3 5/8″ on the 7 1/4″ side).

PFS202003_.SlimLovelyEdges_Channin2

I then die cut a frame using the Slim Diagonal Stitched Rectangles Die out of white cardstock. I then added thin foam strips to the back side and then adhered onto the card front.

I then die cut “celebrate” out of white cardstock and white craft foam using the Kelly Alpha Lower Case Die Set and then adhered the two together and then adhered them to my card front.

Lastly, I finished the card with a stamped and white heat embossed sentiment from the Layered Bouquet Stamp Set, stamped on a strip of gray cardstock then popped up with foam squares.

And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed my cards!

WFC202003-310390-LittleOneAlphaDie-Channin1

Hello friends! Today I have a new video demonstrating how I created a colorful welcome baby card with Waffle Flower Crafts new Little One Alpha Die and Little One Baby Combo!

VIDEO: Little One Alpha Card

Watch below or on my YouTube channel.

To create this card, I first die cut letters for “welcome” and seven block outlines and solids using the Little One Alpha Die. I then ink blended the die cuts with several Pinkfresh Studio inks (Sparkling Rose, Apricot, Lemon Whip, Key Lime, Aquamarine, Summer Showers, and Blue Jay). Once I finished ink blending the blocks I then adhered them together with liquid glue.

Next, I stamped a baby from the Little One Baby Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored it with copics. When I had finished coloring the image I then die cut it out with the matching dies.

WFC202003-310390-LittleOneAlphaDie-Channin2

Next, I stamped my background on a 3.5″ x 8.5″ piece of cream cardstock using the Layering Woodgrain Stamp Set in Warm Buff ink. I then adhered the stamped panel onto a slimline card base (7″ x 8.5″, scored at 3.5″). Next, I stamped “little one” by cutting a stamp from the Little One Baby Stamp Set in Versafine onyx black onto the card front.

I then finished the card by adhering all the die cuts with foam tape.

Spellbinders March Release Blog Hop

Spellbinders March Release Blog Hop

Hello friends!! Today I’m joining Spellbinders in celebrating their March Clubs with a blog hop and GIVEAWAY!!

Blog-Hop-1200x1200-1

I created a cute interactive card with the March Die of the Month and the March Stamp of the Month.

IMG_5460

To create this card first I die cut the basket, bunny, and foliage out of white cardstock using the Die of the Month. I then ink blended the basket in Antique Linen and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide. I then die cut a second basket and ink blended that in Tea Dye Distress Oxide and then adhered the first basket on top. Next, I ink blended the rabbit with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide.

IMG_5462

I then ink blended his nose with Spun Sugar and his eyes with Black Soot. I then placed a small piece of micropore tape behind his head and then inlaid the eyes and nose. Next, I ink blended the leaves with Crushed Olive and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide. For the flowers, I die cut a bunch them out of dark pink and a just a pair out of light pink cardstock. I then die cut the centers out of yellow cardstock and then adhered them to the flowers.

IMG_5456

Next I created a mask by die cutting a 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ rectangle of contact paper with the basket die. I then removed the inside negative for the basket and then trimmed off the top nubs on the contact paper basket. I then removed the backing and placed the contact paper rectangle onto a 3 3/8″ x 4 5/8″ panel of white cardstock and then removed the backing on the contact paper basket and place that inside the rectangle onto the cardstock. Next I ink blended the opening with Fossilized Amber and Tea Dye Distress Oxide to creating the back of the basket.

IMG_5461

Next, I cut 1/4″ x 1 1/2″ slot on the ink blended panel with a craft knife. I then created a pull tab by adhering two 1/2″ x  4 5/8″ strips of white cardstock together. I then adhered two supporter strips to the backside of the ink blended panel to hold the pull tab in place. Next, I added a small square of foam tape to the pull tab through the opening on the ink blended panel. I then trimmed the rabbit just below the paw and then added it to the foam tape. I then stamped a sentiment from the Stamp of the Month in Versafine onto the panel.

I then die cut two baskets out of white craft foam and adhered them together. Next I trimmed them to make sure the rabbit had enough room to move behind the basket and adhered them to the cardstock basket and then adhered the basket onto the panel.

I then decorated only the edges of an A2 top-folding card base made from pink cardstock with the dark pink flowers. I then added foam tape to the based of the panel, avoiding the pull tab and then adhered it to the card front. Lastly I finished the card by adhering the foliage and some of the flowers to the basket.

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

VIDEO: Framed Rainbow Sprigs Card

VIDEO: Framed Rainbow Sprigs Card

WFC202003-310379-SprigsDie-Channin1

Hello friends!! I have a new card and video demonstrating how I created this framed rainbow sprigs card with some new products from Waffle Flower Crafts March Release.

Framed Rainbow Sprigs Card

Watch below or on my YouTube channel.

First, I die cut several leaves and flowers using the Sprigs Die out of white cardstock. I then ink blended the sprigs with a rainbow of Waffle Flower Dye Ink colors (Tickled Pink, My Pleasure, You Said What, Oh Happy Day, Chirp Chirp, Peace of Mind, New Fish in Pond, Daydreaming). Once I finished ink blending all the sprigs, I then die cut 4 squares frames using the Additional Squares Dies out of white cardstock.

WFC202003-310379-SprigsDie-Channin3

I then arranged the sprigs, using one of the square dies as a guide. Once I had all the die cuts arranged I then placed one of the square frames on top and then used painters tape to hold everything in place. I then flipped the arrangement over and then adhered the three remaining frames to the backside of the arrangement.

Next, die cut part of my sentiment out with the Oversized Hello Word Die out of white cardstock and white craft foam. I then adhered the cardstock to the craft foam. Next, I stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Oversized Hello Stamp Set onto gray cardstock. I then trimmed the sentiment down to a strip.

WFC202003-310379-SprigsDie-Channin2

Next I adhered the sprigs and frames to a square card base (5 1/2″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″). I then adhered the die cut hello adding some addition foam squares to the center to support. I then finished the card by adhering the sentiment strip with foam tape.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and video! Thank you so much for stopping by!

Spellbinders March Stamp and Large Die of the Month

Spellbinders March Stamp and Large Die of the Month

Hello friends!! This month I’m joining Spellbinders and sharing some projects I created with their incredible March club products!

Let’s start with the super sweet spring and bunny themed dies apart of the Large Die of the Month.

SPB202003_LargeDieOfTheMonth_Channin4

I had so much fun creating this adorable spring of easter scene with this beautiful set of dies!

First I die cut all the images out of white cardstock. I then ink blended the die cuts to add color. I ink blended the basket in Antique Linen and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide. I die cut a second basket and ink blended that in Tea Dye Distress Oxide and then adhered the first basket on top. Next, I ink blended the rabbits with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide. I ink blended their ears and noses with Spun Sugar and the eyes with Black Soot.

SPB202003_LargeDieOfTheMonth_Channin2

I adhered the inner ears on and then used a small piece of micropore tape to hold the eyes and nose in place. Next, I ink blended the leaves with Crushed Olive and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide and the flowers with either Spun Sugar or Picked Raspberry and the centers with Mustard Seed and then adhered the centers to the flowers.

SPB202003_LargeDieOfTheMonth_Channin1

I then arranged all the die cuts and then used painters tape to temporarily hold them all in place, then flipped them over and added foam tape to the backsides. Next, I ink blended a 4 3/16″ 5 7/16″ panel of white cardstock with Tumbled Glass, Crushed OIive, Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide. I then added water spots with a paint brush.

SPB202003_LargeDieOfTheMonth_Channin3

When the water spots had dried I then splattered the panel with watered down Tumbled Glass, Crushed Olive and Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. Next, I adhered the panel onto an A2 white card base with liquid adhesive. I then adhered the die cuts by removing the backing on the foam tape, sticking them down onto the card front, and then carefully removing the painters tape. Lastly, I finished the card by adding Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops to the eyes.

Next, up is a group of cards I created with the Fun Stampers Journey Stamp of the Month.

SPB202003_StampOfTheMonth_Channin1

For these cards I first created the rainbow ink smooshed backgrounds. I ink smooshed several distress oxide colors (Abandoned Coral, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean, Chipped Sapphire, Dusty Concord) in approximately 1/2″ strips of color onto a water media mat by angling the pads when I pressed them onto the mat.

SPB202003_StampOfTheMonth_Channin3

Once I had all the ink on my mat, I then spritzed the mat with water and then smooshed an A2 panel of water color paper into the ink. I then cleaned my mat and then repeated this process for two more panels. Next, I stamped a sentiment using the stamp set in Versamark ink onto gray cardstock and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

SPB202003_StampOfTheMonth_Channin2

I then trimmed my sentiments down and added foam tape to the backside. I then finished the card by adhering the panel to an A2 top-folding card base and then added the sentiment on top.

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

No Line Watercoloring with Tombow Dual Brush Pens

Hello friends!! This week Waffle Flower and Tombow are collaborating to share lots of crafty inspiration!! You don’t have to around here very long to know that I’m a big fan of Tombow Dual Brush Pens!!

WFC202003-WFC306-TulipsCombo-Channin1

Their colors are so bold and vibrant and because they are water based makes them perfect for many techniques!! Today however, I have a video on my most favorite way to use them, for no line watercoloring!

VIDEO: No-Line Watercoloring with Tombow Dual Brush Pens

Watch below or on my YouTube channel.

First I stamped the flowers in Antique Linen Distress Ink onto bristol paper. I then watercolored the flowers with my Tombow Dual Brush Pens. 

  • Leaves: 158 + 126
  • Tulips: 856 + 676; Shadow: 451; Center: 993

Once I had finished coloring I then die cut them out with the matching dies. 

WFC202003-WFC306-TulipsCombo-Channin2

Next, I ink blended a background with Seedless Preserves, Victorian Velvet, Barn Door, and Aged Mahogany distress ink onto the front of an A2 white top-folding card base made from 110lb white cardstock.

WFC202003-WFC306-TulipsCombo-Channin3

Once I had finished ink blending I then splattered the card front with water and a paint brush to create water spots. When the panel was completely dry I then stamped and gold heat embossed a sentiment from the Tulips Stamp Set. I then finished the card by adhering the flowers with foam tape.

I hope you enjoyed! Thank you so much for joining me today!
