Ethereal Floral Thank You - Pinkfresh Studio

Good morning! Today I'm sharing a card I actually made WAY back in January, but hadn't posted here yet! This uses some beautiful Pinkfresh Studio stamps, dies, and jewels for this soft ethereal card!


The main floral image from Full Bloom is beautiful heat embossed in gold on vellum, then die cut with the Coordinating Dies.


Some pattern paper from the 6x6 Just a Little Lovely paper pad is the perfect backdrop! You could also create your own watercolor background, but this made it super quick and easy.


I hid the adhesive for adhering the florals under the sentiment - heat embossed in white on black cardstock. Added some soft jute twine tied in a bow, and a few jewels from Essentials: Jewels Mix to finish this one off!

Elegant Floral Card Combo - Pinkfresh Facebook Live Card

Good morning! Last Thursday was the day for our weekly Pinkfresh Studio Facebook Live! If you missed the Live video and want to take a peek, you can find it on the Pinkfresh Facebook Page - this week's video is available HERE. As always, there was one giveaway for someone who watched live, so make sure and pop in each week to win that live giveaway - 10 AM Pacific time on Thursday morning!

I have been trying to post info here the next day on the card (or cards) we make - for those that aren't on Facebook or maybe didn't see it over there - but thought I might switch things up and post the day before the NEXT Facebook Live, as a reminder that there will be one the next day. We'll see how it goes - and if this works better! So without further ado, here is a look at the cards we created last week!


This week we created a super elegant card set - and even though I don't have it pictured here, we also created a simple gift card holder that was super fun and easy! Go check out the video if you want to see more about that! :)


For both cards, we used the largest of the Slim Ornate Banner dies, cut from white cardstock. For the larger slimline design, we created a cardbase from black cardstock, and mounted it over the top. For the smaller card, we folded it in half to create a fun notecard size and shape card!


The small one has the image from Full Bloom stamped in the fabulous new Detail Black ink off the edge, and the sentiment added below. Finished off with a few gold splatters on this one for some sparkle and shine.


For the larger slimline, we heat embossed those same florals in gold on white cardstock, and die cut out with the coordinating dies. The background had a bit of black splatter added with Licorice liquid watercolors, and then we mounted the florals with foam adhesive over the top.


Finally, we added a sentiment underneath, die cut from Phrase Builder: Sending - and finished off with a few crystals from Essentials: Crystals Mix!

Miss You She Gnome - Simon Says Stamp Lucky To Know You Release

Good morning! Finally getting around to posting another card created with the Simon Says Stamp Lucky to Know You release that happened earlier this month! I was holding off on this one, as the main item I used is still out of stock, and now due to pandemic rules, Simon Says Stamp is unable to ship for a couple weeks anyway. However, you are still able to make purchases that will ship as soon as they they are able to go back to work.


Here is a video I created showing how I put this card together: 


I had so much fun coloring up this cute little She Gnome with Copics - after die cutting all of the pieces from white cardstock!


And who doesn't love a gnome on an action wobble, right? Here it is in action:



Some pattern paper from the Moda Scrap Spring Flowers 6x6 pattern paper pack (which was in the March 2020 Kit of the Month), and some sentiments from CZ Designs Sentiments Strips Reverse Miss You set - paired up with a few sparkly jewels and Glossy Accents are the perfect finishing touch!

Don't Lose Hope - Simon Says Stamp April Card Kit

Good morning! Stopping by today to share one last card created with the April Simon Says Stamp Card Kit - Follow the Rainbows! This kit is full of rainbow happiness - just the thing for our crazy stress filled world right now! The included stamp set by the same name is just lovely and filled with fabulous sentiments, the fun Clouds for Days stencil is super fun, the pattern paper is RAINBOWS, there is some embossing powder - not to mention the Cardstock, Envelopes, and more!

This card was intended to have a video to accompany it...but for some reason, despite pushing start, my camera failed to begin recording - and I didn't realize it until the card was finished! Oh well...another time I suppose!


Fortunately, this card is very easy to explain - and super easy to create as well! I started off with a panel of vellum, and tore the edges to create a long strip slightly thinner than the width of an A2 card. On this panel, I heat embossed the main image and a sentiment from the Follow the Rainbows stamp set in the kit.


I trimmed some of that delicious pattern paper down to an A2 card size as well - 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 - then folded the edges of the vellum around the top and bottom of that panel, adhering on the back. Then, it was an easy matter of adhering all of that to a white top folding card base!


Here is a closer look at the entire kit contents - you can find all the details HERE:

You Are My Soulmate - Simon Says Stamp Anniversary Card

Good morning! I don't know if you happened to see the anniversary card I posted day before yesterday (click HERE to view), but this was one I created with some of the leftovers of yesterday's card! I used the same Simon Says Stamp supplies - and the negative from yesterday's card to put together this window frame for my sentiment!


I used the background I created with the Triangle Blast stencil and my Green Parade Shimmer Powder - I love using shimmer powders with stencils! I used watercolor cardstock. layed my stencil over the top, dusted a bit of the shimmer powder over the stencil, then misted with water before removing the stencils.


Once that had time to dry nice and thoroughly, I chose a favorite part of the design and die cut the medium size of the Wonky Hearts dies from that panel (and used it on yesterday's card), but as I looked at this part that I had set aside, I thought it would be fun to create a card with this piece as well! I stamped a sentiments from the Love Always stamp set in the window the heart created on some Cream cardstock - just a bit softer than stark white cardstock, and felt like it fit the colors better. I mounted the watercolor panel with foam adhesive over the panel with the stamped sentiment.


I mounted that onto a cardbase created from Fog cardstock, and then added a small supporting sentiment, heat embossed on a thin strip of black cardstock, and trimmed at a slight angle.


Finished off with a few clear Pretty Pink Posh droplets! This one might be my favorite of all the 3 anniversary cards I made this past week!

I Still Love You - Simon Says Stamp Anniversary Card

Good morning! I don't know if you happened to see the anniversary card I posted yesterday (click HERE to view), but this was the second of the 3 I created! I used a similar layout, but some different colors, sentiments, and embellishments for a slightly different look - but mostly using the same Simon Says Stamp supplies!


I started off by creating the pattern on the background with a the Triangle Blast stencil and my Green Parade Shimmer Powder - I love using shimmer powders with stencils! I used watercolor cardstock. layed my stencil over the top, dusted a bit of the shimmer powder over the stencil, then misted with water before removing the stencils.


Once that had time to dry nice and thoroughly, I chose a favorite part of the design and die cut the medium size of the Wonky Hearts dies from that panel, and then stamped a couple sentiments from both the Love Always stamp set and I Still Do stamp set by CZ Design on it. Love how perfectly they work together!


I created a card base from Fog cardstock, then die cut a Wonky Rectangle from Cream cardstock - just a bit softer than stark white cardstock, and felt like it fit the colors better.


I created a black banner for this one using a strip of black cardstock, and trimming the edges with a small die from Sentiment Labels Wafer Die, then layered everything together, adding the heart with some foam adhesive. I finished off with some enamel dots from the Pinkfresh Super Cool collection. Can you see the bit of sparkle from the shimmer powders? And yet it definitely feels like a masculine card still!
