Pinkfresh Catch Up Cards

Good morning! So...I'm sadly and woefully late posting these cards - I just never quite got around to finish posting them here! They were actually created a year ago - in January 2020 for Creativation as samples for the tradeshow booth with the newest release. Since I didn't get them posted, I don't have info on every supply I used anymore...but I will try to get most of them linked up below. In the meantime - here are a whole bunch of photos to scroll through...and so I at least have them posted somewhere as a reference!

Bright Hugs and Kisses - Simon Says Stamp February 2021 Card Kit

 Hello! I'm here today to share another card with the February 2021 Simon Says Stamp Card Kit - Love You Beary Much! This kit is full of sweet love theme items, some super bright and happy elements, and some fun shaker fillings and embellishments as well! The included stamp set by the same name has the cutest little bear and other cute images - with lots of darling sentiments as well, there is some lovely pattern paper, an adorable mini stamp set - that's all not to mention the cardstock, envelopes, and more!

Today's card was a bit of a different feel than what I normally make, but I just had to give that fun Rina K Designs Poppin' Pink Neon Glitz Glitter gel a try - super fun on the Tumbling Hearts stencil included in the kit!


I started off by stenciling that fun background on a panel of white cardstock with that neon glitter gel - super hard to capture the bright happy color and sparkle in a photo - but I tried! Once it dried, I trimmed the panel down slightly, and mounted on one of the A2 black notecards in the kit - perfect contrast with that bright pink!


I stamped the sentiment from the included stamp set then fussy cut it out and mounted with foam adhesive in the lower right corner. Finished off with a few of the sequins from the set included in the kit!


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

Being a Friend - Simon Says Stamp Love You, Too Release Blog Hop

Good morning! Excited today to be joining in on Day 2 of an epic blog hop to celebrate the BRAND NEW Love You, Too Release from Simon Says Stamp! Make sure and check out all the inspiration with this new release AND link up your creations as you receive your orders HERE in the Gallery created just for this release! And check out the graphic below to receive a FREE darling 6x8 Faraway Hugs stamp set with the coupon code below through January 18, 2021 as well - while supplies last (code expires at 11:59 PM EDT)!!!


I have recently tried hot foiling for the first time - and I am totally and completely hooked! I got a hot foil machine, but no hot foil plates as of yet...but I discovered you can do hot foiling with dies as well! So when I saw the brand new Boho Circle Wafer Dies, well, I knew just what I wanted to do with them!


I wish I could totally capture in these photos the beautiful look that the hot foiling gives! Such a classy and fun look - and I love the versatility of being able to use dies for it! This die is perfect - so intricate and detailed!


For this first card, I used Soft Navy Cardstock, with Spellbinders Aura gold foil. Navy and Gold is always such a classic combo, don't you think?


I was also pleased to discover that one of the Nesting Circles was the perfect size to die cut my foiled image down to size.


Sentiment is using another new item - Thank You for Being a Friend die. I die cut it from gold cardstock for each card, and also a couple times from white cardstock to layer together for dimension.


For this second card, I used Mint cardstock, and used Spellbinder's Gold Foil to foil my image.


Once both images were foiled and die cut, I mounted them with foam adhesive on white cardbases, and added the sentiments over the top.


I finished off by embellishing with a few sparkly clear Pretty Pink Posh sequins - the clear color was just right to add a bit of sparkle, without distracting from the clean and graphic look of these cards.


I love the bold look of the foiling on the colored cardstock - but still leaving lots of white space by mounting on white cardbases.


I would love to hear which color combo is your favorite!
