Pinkfresh January Release Blog Hop

Good morning! So excited today to be hopping along with Pinkfresh Studios as we celebrate the BRAND NEW January 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 January 17th head to the Pinkfresh Studio Store and use code "JANFREESHIPWITH50" for free US Shipping and $5.50 off international shipping!


In addition, all orders totaling over $25 will get this adorable die for free as well while supplies last (no code needed):



Now - on to my projects to share for the hop! I created two cards featuring the fun Folk Elements Die Set!


I actually started off by die cutting one of the cake elements from the new Make a Wish Coordinating Die Set from 3 different colors of bright happy cardstock. It made a perfect fun frame image for my Folk Elements!


I die cut those Folk Elements from the centers of my colorful cardstock shapes, then die cut them again from white cardstock. I adhered a bit of Scotch tape to the back of the frames, then inlaid the white die cuts and filled in the missing pieces with the other elements to get a solid and fun image.


I also die cut the new Let's Party Die Set layers from deep gray and white cardstock and layered those together for my sentiment.


It's a little difficult to see in the photos, but before I adhered those on my cardbases, I used the previously released Folklore Die to deboss the front of the card for some extra texture. Then mounted all my images with foam adhesive over the top. You can see the texture a bit better in this photo:


Now, you know I couldn't let those colorful negative pieces go to waste! So I also put together this super clean and simple design!


For this card I just used a glue pen to adhere those detailed images down, then stamped a beautiful sentiment from the new Oval Foliage Wreath Stamp Set underneath. Super easy, and no waste!


I know I've mentioned it before on my blog, but both my family and my husband's family have lots of Scandinavian Roots - his family from Norway, mine from Sweden - so I love the Scandinavian feel to these designs! And the detail is just so fun and incredible!


Now, I've been busily creating to have cards to bring along with me to Creativation (I leave in just a few days! EEEK!) - and I will be posting these on my blog in the days and weeks to come, but thought I would give you a small peek of some of the ones I've been working on!

First up - this one featuring the unique and fun Lost in the City Stamp Set


And I'm in LOVE with this beautiful Spring Floral Border Die - paired up with some Liquid Watercolors and another sentiment from the gorgeous Oval Foliage Wreath Stamp Set:


I love this floral swag from Heart and Soul Stamp set paired up with the Oval Foliage Die Set - they work so well together, and the Coordinating Heart and Soul Die makes using this image a breeze:


And finally, I ADORE the stunning Embroidered Blossoms Stamp set - and the perfect large sentiments in Scripted Bold Sentiments - with an additional little sentiment from Heart and Soul stamp set tucked on here as well:
