Pinkfresh Studio 4th Birthday Bash Hop and Giveaway

Good morning! Excited this morning to be hopping along with a fabulous line-up to celebrate Pinkfresh Studio's 4th Birthday! There are a lot of amazing crafters along the hop - and prizes at every stop! Make sure and leave a comment here before you leave for a chance to win a $40 gift certificate to the Pinkfresh Store - woohoo!!! You should have arrived here from the amazing Lea Lawson - if not, hop on over to the Pinkfresh Blog to start at the very beginning!


I have two fun birthday cards to share today using some gorgeous Pinkfresh Studios pattern paper - as well as stamps and dies!


My first card uses tons of yummy paper from the Let Your Heart Decide 6x6 paper pad, paired up with the fun Sweet Treats Stamp set. I coordinated the colors of my stamping to the colors in the paper to make it all tie together.


I stamped the layers of the cake with 3 colors of Simon Says Stamp Ink - Duckling, Coral Reef, and Winter Sky - and the cake plate with Copic friendly black ink. I then colored it in with a coordinating Copic marker, and die cut both with the coordinating Sweet Treats Dies. I added an assortment of the small elements along the side of my white cardstock panel for colorful "sprinkles", and then used my MISTI to stamp and line up the "YAY" sentiment at the top. I stamped it with the cake in place, then removed it and stamped again so I could mount my cake with foam adhesive over the top and have everything line up perfectly.


Finally, I adhered the layers of pattern paper at wonky angles, and then used my fingers to curl up the edges for dimension.


Next up, I couldn't resist using the adorable Magical Unicorn set again - seriously so adorable!


For this card, I used pattern paper from the gorgeous Be You 6x6 Paper pad. One of the papers had a lovely floral border around the outer edge. I layered that at an angle over the other pattern paper, and took advantage of that design element as a border for that panel, then added the die cut Magical Unicorn elements and stamped eyes and sentiment. 


I die cut the horn from gold glitter cardstock, and the ears, flowers, and leaves from white cardstock. I stamped the centers of the flowers and leaves with ink coordinated (again) to the pattern paper - this time Twirling Tutu, Rose Apple, and Dusty Sage. Finished off with some gold splatters with my Starry Colors Palette, and some gorgeous Buttercream Jewels from Pretty Pink Posh!


What do you think - do you have a favorite from these two cards?!?!? Which would you like to receive on your birthday?
