Pinkfresh Studio May Essentials Release

 Good morning! Today is an amazing blog hop to celebrate Pinkfresh Studio's May 2021 Essentials Release! You aren't going to want to miss a stop along the way - TONS of inspiration and prizes up for grabs! YAY! 


As always, there is also a shipping promo - FREE US Shipping with $50 purchase, or discounted shipping for our international friends. Details and coupon codes are on this graphic:




This release is all about the Essentials dies - and the super exciting new jewel refill pouches! So I was also able to mix and match some other recent and older releases on my cards, which was even more fun!


For this first card, I pulled out the previously released Miss Your Smile stamp and stencil combo. I stenciled it in soft pinks and greens, then heat embossed the image in white over the top. Love the soft look this gives!


I tucked it behind a panel of white cardstock that I die cut a window in using the new Blanket Stitched Ovals dies - love how it adds the stitching on the negative piece like this, so you can create a pretty window frame!


I added a heat embossed sentiment on some coordinating pink cardstock, then die cut it with Fancy Label Frames, and popped it up with foam adhesive. I also stamped some additional sentiments in Detail black ink on the front of the card.


I added some strips of pattern paper at the top and bottom - and that cute scallop edge? That is actually from the new Stitched Scallop Squares, tucked underneath. Fun, right? All mounted on a pink cardbase. A few sparkly white jewels finish off this card - and then of course, I had to create a coordinating envelope with the new Slimline Envelope die! These are so incredible and fun!


Now...I have been loving Slimline cards more and more lately - but I'm pretty sure there is NOTHING cuter than a MINI slimline! Eek...I could make those all day I tell ya!


I actually started off here by creating that fun lemon envelope using the new Mini Slimline envelope - then I had to make a card to match it, of course! I used the new Mini Slimline Essentials dies to die cut the white panel, then used the same set of Blanket Stitched Ovals as the last card (just the smaller oval) to create a window in the card front, and tucked a bit of the extra lemon pattern paper behind the window.


I added the large sentiment using the recently released Lots of Love die, using gold mirror cardstock for the shadow layer, and white for the letters. It is popped up with foam adhesive on my cardfront.


I added all the fun greenery using the Garden Wreath die set from the last release - and just layering and clustering different pieces together. LOVE the cute little flowers - so dainty and fun!


Finished off with a few sparkly jewels - and pretty much want to hold onto this card forever now! :)


Next up - these dies are PERFECT for mixing with some of Pinkfresh's beautiful washi and die combos!


For this card, I die cut a window from white cardstock using the new Blanket Stitched Circles - again, using the negative cut that created the beautiful window. I mounted it over some off-white cardstock to create a subtle difference in color.


I added some of the Joyful Bouquet washi, that was placed on vellum, then die cut with the coordinating dies. I added a hot foiled sentiment from Perfect Sentiments - and used a bit of liquid adhesive behind that to adhere the bouquet to my cardbase.


Of course - a few sparkly jewels finish this card off!


And finally - I have this card to share that I created last week for Facebook Live as a sneak peek of this release! You can watch the video HERE if you want to watch it come together:


The main star of the show on this card (haha - see what I did there?) is the fun new Shaker Stars dies! I used both the positive image (the white stars) as well as the negative spaces to create a couple small shaker elements on my cardfront.


The cute Leafy Circle die cut from gold cardstock was such a perfect fit around that large star, and perfectly framed my sentiment from Be Strong stamp set.


Background was created with Slim Layered Starburst stencil, and a splatter of gold to add some sparkle. I filled the shaker with some of the clear crystals, and some gold seed beads from my stash. And of course, finished off with a few sparkly jewels. I also tucked a couple gold leaves under the small stars - die cut from Garden Wreath dies.

  22. Hi, HH - I like all four of these cards very much and thank you for the variety you've offered visitors. The "miss you" card with its GORGEOUS matching envelope (or maybe "coordinating" is more correct?) is over-the-top pretty. The "be strong/be different/be you" also has a spot-on sentiment and a beautiful appearance as well (AND it's a shaker!). The birthday card is such a beautiful floral! Love that blanket stitch edging! Finally, the "lots of love" card is cheerful and bright - love the peek-a-boo window! You're fantastic!! So glad I have gotten to know you from watching you live and seeing your comments as moderator. You are a treasure!
