Pinkfresh Studio January 2020 Stamp & Die Release Blog Hop

Good morning! Today is an amazing blog hop to celebrate Pinkfresh Studio's January 2020 Stamp and Die Release! You may have seen some of the sneak peeks of this HUGE and GORGEOUS new release in Creativation photos this past week - and now it's time to officially reveal them all! You aren't going to want to miss a stop along the way - TONS of inspiration and prizes up for grabs! YAY! You also might want to pop over to the Pinkfresh Studio Facebook Page at 10 AM Pacific Time this morning - I will be going LIVE featuring some of the new releases, and there will be a gift certificate up for grabs as well!


I have lots of cards to share with you today - definitely more than I usually would on this blog hop! But I ended up creating a total of 33 cards in less than a week right before Creativation to help make sure there were enough samples to put in the booth, so I have a LOT of cards to share, and figured I may as well start now!

So let's jump right in with this layered beauty featuring one of my favorite new dies from the release!


For this card I used the lovely Foliage Frame Die. I cut it once from a lighter green cardstock, and once from a deeper shade. This allowed me to alternate and layer them together to build lots of extra dimension! So fun!


I did a bit of soft ink blending around my card base using Lemon Whip dye ink, then adhered both of my frames over the top. I layered together one of the words in the beautiful new Phrase Builder Sending Die Set, cutting the main layer once from gold glitter cardstock, and once from black - then layering them together slightly offset for a soft shadow effect.


Finally, I added some add on sentiments from the Just Because Stamp Set, a few jewels from Essentials Jewels Mix, and a good bit of gold splatters with my Starry Colors palette! I love that additional sparkle!


Next up, I used that same Foliage Frame Die, but with only one layer for a different and more simple look:


This time, I die cut it from white cardstock and layered over some pretty pattern paper from the Just a Little Lovely 6x6 paper pad.


I die cut a sentiment from another sentiment die set - Phrase Builder You Die Set, this time cutting the outline layer from vellum to go underneath the glitter cardstock layer.


I added an additional sentiment, again from the new Just Because Stamp Set - heat embossed on a hand trimmed thin banner of black cardstock, then before adhering those layers down, I added a bit of the tiniest gold splatters I could manage with my Licorice Liquid Watercolors!


Next up, I have a card using a similar die, but with a slightly different design called Foliage Frame Inset Die! If you stop by my Facebook Live today, I'll show you how beautifully THIS die layers together as well!


For this card, I kept things fairly clean and simple - and just went for a fun color palette. I die cut this lovely die from white cardstock, and layered over a panel of aqua cardstock that was just *slightly* smaller than my white cardbase, which allowed for a slight border around the blue panel.


I added the large die cut word from Phrase Builder Sending Die set, die cut once from gold glitter cardstock, then layered on two more of the same word die cut from white cardstock. This gives a nice dimensional effect.


I finished off with a sentiment from the new Curvy Floral Branch stamp set, heat embossed on a thin strip of coral cardstock and tucked under and around the other die cut elements.


And finally - I'm so super excited about this beautiful Intricate Mandala die! Isn't it lovely?!? If you haven't heard yet, this die was designed by the 13 year old daughter of Kinnari, the owner of Pinkfresh. Isn't that amazing? I got the privilege of meeting and spending some time with her in Phoenix too - so happy for her and her beautiful design!


For this card, it looks like I perhaps spent a lot longer and put more time and effort into it than I actually did. I used some more of the lovely pattern paper from the Just a Little Lovely 6x6 Paper pad, and for some additional interest, I added a bit of machine stitching around the outer edges.


I heat embossed a sentiment from the new Leafy Decor Stamp set on some coordinating solid cardstock, adhered that with foam adhesive to my mandala die cut from white cardstock. I used this to hide some liquid glue behind and adhere the entire thing to my cardbase.


Before adhering it down, I added some ivory jute string wrapped around and tied in a bow. Finished off with a few jewels from Essentials: Jewels Mix.
