Layering Dies Two Ways with Distress Oxides - Pinkfresh Studios

Good morning! Yesterday was my second Facebook Live video! This one went much better If you missed it and want to take a peek, you can find it on the Pinkfresh Facebook Page - this weeks video is available HERE. Still planning to do this each week on Thursdays as schedules allow - so I hope you'll be able to come join me sometime! Next week we will be playing with some of the brand new April release that is coming soon, and there will be some giveaways as well - so please come join in the fun! It will be 10AM PDT on the Pinkfresh Facebook Page HERE!

So today I'm sharing the cards we made in yesterday's live video - we had fun with the Pinkfresh Fancy Floral 1 and Fancy Floral 2 Layering Dies and Distress Oxide inks for these!

The best way to understand the process is to go watch the video, which fortunately is saved and posted on the Facebook page now. But basically we used the die cut pieces as stencils for the first card, then used those same pieces to layer together for the second card. We also added some sentiments on top, using the new Essentials: Classic Words Die Set, and some little add on sentiments. This first one the extra sentiment came from Happy Hugs

This second one with the dies we used as stencils layered together has an add on sentiment from Lush Greenery stamp set:

The two distress oxide inks we used for this are Dried Marigold and Abandoned Coral. There are also some gold splatters on both of these that we added with a Starry Colors palette for a bit of sparkle and shine! Isn't it fun getting two cards from one design idea?  

When I started the video, I didn't have a completed card in mind, but I had started playing with some design ideas in a different color palette. So after the video, I completed these into cards as well!

These cards used Cracked Pistachio and Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide inks, and pretty much the same process.

For both of these cards I accidentally used a retired stamp set called Bird with Flowers, so if you happen to have that in your stash you can put it to good use as well! And if not, there are TONS of fabulous sentiments in other Pinkfresh stamp sets fortunately!

Same gold splatters and layers here on these cards. Would love to hear which color combo is your favorite!
