Pinkfresh Studio 5th Birthday Blog Hop Celebration

Good morning! Excited today to be celebrating a very big milestone for Pinkfresh Studio - it's their 5th Birthday, and there is a blog hop and celebration today to celebrate! You aren't going to want to miss a stop along the way - TONS of inspiration and prizes up for grabs! YAY!


Since it's a birthday party, I decided to create some birthday cards with some of my favorite Pinkfresh Studio products - and when you are making one card, it is just as easy to make 3 and have more on hand, don't you think? 


I started off by created watercolor backgrounds on panels of watercolor paper using Pinkfresh Studio's Liquid Watercolors in Bubblegum, Clementine, Sunshine, Aquamarine, and Emerald City. While those dried, I die cut several of the Dainty Blossoms Dies from white cardstock.


Once the watercolors dried, I die cut frames using Noteworthy Frames die set to tuck those intricate Dainty Blossoms into. I taped them from behind, and also added touches of liquid adhesive behind the flowers to hold them in place. I stamped my sentiments from Make a Wish stamp set on the frames, using my MISTI to ensure perfect placement in this late stage in the cardmaking.


You may notice a sneak peek of one of the new dies that will be releasing Monday as well! I finished off by mounting on white cardbases, using foam adhesive behind the Noteworthy Frames to pop them up, then sturdy adhesive behind the rest to hold it in place.
