Pinkfresh Studio October Release Blog Hop

Good morning! So excited today to be hopping along with Pinkfresh Studios as we celebrate the BRAND NEW October Release! You aren't going to want to miss a stop along the way - TONS of inspiration and prizes up for grabs! YAY!

I have a $25 gift card up for grabs here on my blog (details below) - and the ENTIRE RELEASE is up for grabs as well! See details on the Pinkfresh BlogPinkfresh Studio is also having a special promo in honor of the new release! Between now and October 11th head to the Pinkfresh Studio Store and use code "OCTFREESHIPWITH50" for free US Shipping and $5.50 off international shipping!


In addition, all order including at least one item from the new release will get this adorable die for free as well (no code needed):


If you are following along the hop, you should have arrived here from the fabulous Emily Midgett!

I have two cards to share with you today - first up, this floral card featuring the GORGEOUS new Inked Florals Stamp set, as well as a STUNNING new sentiment set, My Favorite Things to Say:


These florals are so fun to stamp with and build lovely backgrounds! So easy to fill in with the solids, outlines, and small elements as well! And the sentiments as well are fabulous - most of them work fabulously on their own and some like this that work perfectly to build a custom sentiment. And that font! Isn't it so pretty?!?!?


Some layers, some Nuvo Jewel Drops scattered around, a tiny paperclip with some jute string tied on - then everything mounted on a kraft cardbase finish this card off!


Next up - I couldn't resist these little cuties from the new Happy Hugs! Aren't they adorable?!?!?


I used Distress Oxide inks on the background in two tones for a fun ombre type effect - darker in color around the edges. Then I stamped the bears in the perfectly placed cut out - there are also coordinating dies, but I love how they fit perfectly for one layer cards too!


I colored the cuties up, and then added another white paper layer, and a scrap of pattern paper from the Holiday Vibes 6x6 Paper Pad stitched on the bottom. 


Finally, a few Holiday Vibes Enamel Dots, and then some sparkly Nuvo Drops on the snowy areas to finish it off!


Your next stop along the hop is the always amazing Jennifer McGuire - make sure and head there next!

  5. Hi Heather, thank you for sharing two beautiful cards with us today! Crushing over the design of your first; the floral framing of the fabulous-font sentiment is so striking! The second...oh my stars! The snuggle is real is pure delight! Love the little bears, so sweet snuggled together in one scarf! You clearly had fun creating these cards; they're infused with joy...
