Pinkfresh Studio Holiday Stamp, Die, Stencil, and Hot Foil Release

Good morning! Today is an amazing blog hop to celebrate Pinkfresh Studio's Holiday Stamp, Die, Stencil, and Hot Foil Release! If this release doesn't have you humming Christmas songs, I don't know what will! 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 $75 purchase, or discounted shipping for our international friends. Details and coupon codes are on this graphic:


I managed to get several cards in - amazing how quickly playing Christmas music in the background gets your creative juices flowing, anyone else?!?


I love these gorgeous new Ornament Layering Stencils - I actually put in a wish for layering ornament stencils, and these fabulous things were the result! And... coordinating dies just make them that much better! I stenciled them in a bright and happy color scheme, and die cut with the Coordinating dies. I saved the "Merry Christmas" word at the bottom of the stencils for another card later.


I layered the branch and ornaments on a circle (it is actually leftover negative space from the final card I'm sharing today - from the Happy Holidays Circle Frame die). I used foam adhesive for lots of fun dimension.


Background is one of the gorgeous new hot foil plates - Diamond Hot Foil Plate - that I know is going to be fabulous as a staple for much more than holiday cards! I also trimmed it down using the largest Stitched Rectangles die. I added the circle with more foam adhesive to continue on the feeling of dimension.


Mounted everything on a coordinating green cardbase, added a few sparkly jewels on the ornaments, and around the edges, and finished off with a sentiment from the new (and AMAZING!) Perfect Sentiments: Holiday hot foil and coordinating die. I also added a secondary sentiment from Thrill of Hope stamp set.


Another item from this release that I made a wish for some time back - layering tree stencils! The new Wintry Forest is SOOO fun and amazing! I can't wait to stencil it in ALL the colors!


For my first card with it, I thought it would be fun to just use one single ink color, and do each layer of the trees in gradually deeper tones with the same ink. I chose Olive for this first try - and LOVE how it came out!


Once I stenciled the trees, I used the final layer to add white embossing paste for a bit of texture, and added some gold splatters for sparkle. I then popped it behind a Blanket Stitched Oval to create a window, and mounted it on a deeper green cardbase.


I used another one of those Perfect Sentiments: Holiday, again popped up with foam adhesive, and as before, another secondary sentiment from Thrill of Hope stamp set, heat embossed in white on black, and trimmed into a banner shape.


Final touch on this card is a few Metallic Gold Pearls to coordinate with the gold splatters!


And finally - more happy and non-traditional colors!


The base of this card is some aqua cardstock with the new Diagonal Stripes hot foil plate over it with Prism hot foil - the color of this foil is pretty much silver with a hint of reflective rainbow hints. Sooo pretty!


I added the new Happy Holidays Circle frame, stenciled in soft colors, and then stamped over the top and heat embossed in gold. I love that the sentiments have a coordinating die as well!


The secondary sentiment I just heat embossed on a strip of colored cardstock, and then finished off with a few more Metallic Gold Pearls.


To add the dimension to these pieces, I die cut them 3 times, and layered together instead of using foam adhesive. Just gave me a bit more of a stable piece, and easier than trimming down lots of little pieces of foam tape!

I placed an order and cannot wait for it to arrive on my porch. I may never leave my craft room. I love the washi. I make cards for the people in nursing facilities and the washi tapes make it quick and easy. The patients need a lift since the shut down. Thank you for assisting me with making them smile with your amazing products.
