Pinkfresh Studios July Release Blog Hop

Good morning! So excited today to be hopping along with Pinkfresh Studios as we celebrate the BRAND NEW July Release! You aren't going to want to miss a stop along the way - TONS of inspiration and prizes up for grabs! YAY!

I have a $25 gift card up for grabs here on my blog (details below) - and the ENTIRE RELEASE is up for grabs as well! See details on the Pinkfresh BlogPinkfresh Studio is also having a special promo in honor of the new release! Between now and July 13th head to the Pinkfresh Studio Store and use code "FREESHIPWITH50" for free US Shipping and $5.50 off international shipping!


I have two cards to share with you today using some of the new stamps and dies!


My first card features two fabulous dies that work together - or separately if you prefer! I used Fancy Floral 1 Die and Fancy Floral 2 Die layered together for my card today - die cutting them both from watercolor cardstock, then layering together with a glue pen over another panel of watercolor paper before adding a messy and splattery watercolor wash with some of the fabulous Pinkfresh watercolors in Sunshine, Aquamarine, and Sky Blue (with a touch of Sapphire mixed in). Can you see the lovely dimensional texture here?


I absolutely love the texture from this - but the possibilities with these dies are endless! You can layer together different colors of cardstock for another neat effect as well.


I finished off with a sentiment from the new Bloom Stamp Set, heat embossed on a piece of black cardstock with a bit of silver thread tucked underneath - and a few Pearl White Jewels from Pretty Pink Posh for a touch of bling.


For my second card, I have this simple and clean card featuring the fun new Pretty Paisley Stamp Set:


As soon as I saw this stamp set, this floral image caught my eye. It looked almost Scandinavian - and somehow the blue and white color combo seemed perfect for it. I stamped it in a repeating pattern on a panel of white cardstock in a medium blue ink, then stamped the sentiment from the same set below in navy ink. It's hard to see in the photos, but I also added some random dots in a softer blue ink using the snow image from the new Skating Bunnies Stamp Set - adds a fun bit of texture! Finished off with some machine stitching around the edges, a few Pinkfresh Enamel Dots, and a soft blue cardbase.


Which card is more your style? Clean, simple, and monochromatic? Or the texture and dimension with messy watercolor on the first card? And what is on your wish list from the new release?!?!?
