I may show how I created this mixture on the Facebook Live today, so another reason for you to pop by if you're curious!


I die cut a Braided Tag Die and used it upside down as a base for my swag at the bottom, and heat embossed a sentiment at the top in white, also tying a bit of jute twine at the top.


Isn't that green fun with the gold heat embossing?


A Stitched Rectangle for the background with a green cardbase, and a few of the jewels from the Essentials: Jewels Mix finish this card off!

Let Your Heart Bloom - Pinkfresh Studio Facebook Live Card

Good morning! Yesterday was once again my day for a Facebook Live video, and it was die cutting week with lots of fun florals using Dainty Blossoms Dies to create our own flower garden on a card - and I also shared a tiny sneak peek of the new release coming Monday!! If you missed it and want to take a peek, you can find it on the Pinkfresh Facebook Page - this week's video is available HERE. As summer begins there may be some weeks we have to skip, but overall still planning to do this each week on Thursdays as schedules allow - so I hope you'll be able to come join me sometime! As always, there was one giveaway for someone who watched live, so make sure and pop in next week for a chance to win next week's live giveaway - 10 AM Pacific time on Thursday mornings! Make sure and come back on Monday for a special Facebook Live sharing the brand new release that is coming that day!

In the meantime - here is some more info and photos of the card set we made, as well as links to all the products used!


Dainty Blossoms is truly one of my very favorite die sets! I just love how delicate and pretty they are! I die cut them from white cardstock and layered over some peach cardstock.


We die cut a "ground" from coral cardstock using Essentials: Classic Edgers Die Set, and also heat embossed a sentiment on there from Blooming Bouquet stamp set.


Finished off with a frame die cut using Essentials: Diagonal Stitched Rectangles, then added a sprinkling of jewels from Essentials: Jewels Mix. Mounted that panel on a soft green cardbase!

Gold and Shimmer Powders - Simon Says Stamp

Good morning! Back today a card featuring a couple different recent releases from Simon Says Stamp, a bit of heat embossing, and some more Nuvo Shimmer Powders!


I love the look of heat embossing with Shimmer Powders - and if you make it gold heat embossing, it adds an entirely different and beautiful look as well! For this card I used the Floral Mix Background stamp on watercolor paper, heat embossing in gold, then sprinkled with Falling Leaves Shimmer Powder and misted with water. The different colors in the shimmer powder pool within the heat embossing and dry with such fun variation and texture - so fun!


I added a sentiment from Home Sweet Home stamp set - part of the most recent release, and one of my favorite quotes! I heat embossed it on some Gina K Cardstock that coordinated with the hint of blue color in this particular shimmer powder. Trimmed it down, matted with a bit of white cardstock, then mounted with foam over my background.


I love how the simple sentiment really allows this background to shine - can you see the shimmer paired with the gold embossing in this next photo?
