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

 Good morning! Today is an amazing blog hop to celebrate Pinkfresh Studio's September Stamp, Die, Stencil, and Hot Foil Release! This release is full of gorgeous florals, and beautiful new set of alphas, and an amazing new product that I have been SOOO excited to finally share - a Solid Hot Foil plate that is a super useful and versatile tool for your craft room! 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:


Okay - I went a bit crazy (as usual!) with this release - I just couldn't stop playing! The beautiful florals, the awesome new Inna Alpha set, and one of my favorites from this release - the exciting NEW Solid Hot Foil Plate! I've used it on this first card - and there are more photos and a video at the bottom of my post explaining a bit more of what it does - in case you want to skip to the end and see more about it! 

In the meantime...lets dive into the cards I'm sharing for this release:


This first card is a fun slimline card using the new Lush Peonies stamp set, layering stencils, and coordinating die.


I used a fun and girly color palette - then die cut and trimmed the design in half to split between the edges of my slimline card.


I layered a coordinating pink panel die cut with Slim Fancy Diagonal Stripes die for a bit of texture and interest on the background, then tucked the edges of the florals into the corners, popping the rest up with foam adhesive.


I hot foiled the new Inna Alphas, then set them aside to use later, and used the Solid Hot Foil Plate to use the negative pieces of foil, then die cut that with the coordinating die. This gave me a reverse image of the Inna Alphas - I LOVE this effect!


I popped those up with foam adhesive on my card, and then added a secondary sentiment from Blooming Branches stamp set, stamped in detail black ink and trimmed to a thin strip.


Finished off with a few sparkly clear crystals from Essentials: Crystals Mix (which was just finally restocked - yay!).


Next up, perhaps one of my favorite layering floral sets from the release - especially beautiful even without the coordinating stamp set: Dahlia Bunch!


I stenciled this one in purples and greens - I love the detail in this image! I left the stamp set off, and die cut it with the coordinating die.


I used a coordinating purple cardbase, and die cut a panel of white cardstock with Diagonal Stitched Plaid die, and trimmed it down to leave a border of the purple cardbase around the edges.


Die cut the hexagons from Basic Label Frame dies in white, layered them together, and stamped my main sentiment in the center one. Added a secondary sentiment, heat embossed on a bit of black cardstock and trimmed to a thin strip, then finished off with a few sparkly Lavender Jewels!


And finally, all in lovely shades of blue for this next card!


For this card I used the beautiful Garden Roses layering stencils, and also added the stamped image over the top with Detail Black ink before die cutting with the coordinating dies. 


I added a coordinating blue cardbase, and die cut a white Ornate Banner to tuck under it. I also die cut a deeper blue shade of Fancy Label Frame dies, and a smaller white one to stamp my sentiments on, layering them together with some scraps of cardstock for a bit of dimension, but slightly less than with foam adhesive.


Finished off with a few more of those sparkly Essentials: Crystals Mix, but in a coordinating soft blue color for this card!


Next up, I thought I'd show you a quick comparison of each stamp and stencil set - one with the stamped image over the top, and one without, but using the exact same colors. First up is Lush Peony:


And here is Dahlia Bunch:


A look at Garden Roses:


And finally, Blooming Branch:


And now...one to one of the most exciting parts of this release for me! This amazing Solid Hot Foil Plate:


Here is a video sharing all the fun things this plate can do - you can also check it out on YouTube HERE:


You can tell I've had lots of fun using this solid plate for so many of my negative foil pieces!


A couple things to note - that are mentioned in the video as well. If you have a Gemini Foilpress machine, it does come with a metal shim that works similarly. I had better success with this - but I definitely recommend checking what you have to see if it works first.


Also, the quality of cardstock you use will have a huge effect on your foiling success. I used Hammermill 100lb cardstock for all of my samples here and in my video. It has a nice smooth surface, which works well with the foiling.


Hot foiling die cut sentiments and other die cut pieces? SOOO much fun!


Naturally, your success with your negative foil pieces all depends on how well your original piece foiled. If you have a lot of overfoiling, you aren't going to have as much luck with your negative pieces. Die cutting helps hide any of those imperfections though, which is lovely - like these butterflies...love all the shiny gold goodness!


And here are the positive and negative versions of the new Inna Alphas - I can't decide which version I like more. :)

  40. Holy moly, HH!! You have gone WAY ABOVE AND BEYOND!! I love the side/side comparison w/ and w/o stamping on those florals. I watched the vid about the solid foil plate even though I don't even do foiling... that is how good you are and how much I respect your advice. You are amazing. I just absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE everything about the first card. I actually thought it was several different cards b/c the letters take on such different tones dep on the light. It must be the Halo foil. WOWZA, did you hit a home run w/ this post!
