Pinkfresh Studio April Essentials Release Blog Hop

Good morning! So excited today to be hopping along with Pinkfresh Studios as we celebrate the BRAND NEW Essentials Die 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 April 11th head to the Pinkfresh Studio Store and use code "APRESSFREESHIPWITH50" for free US Shipping and $5.50 off international shipping!


In addition, everyone placing an order will get this adorable die for free as well while supplies last (no code needed - will add to cart automatically):


Now...onto my project for today using a couple of the brand new dies from the Essentials Release! There are so many fabulous sets in this release - I know you are going to love them all!


I used two new dies on my card today - Braided Ovals and Diagonal Stitched Rectangles. Aren't they pretty layered together?


I added a sentiment and some of the lovely butterflies from Bloom and Grow, die cutting the butterflies with the Coordinating Dies, and coloring the images and sentiment with monochromatic greens - kind of a fun and unusual color for a butterfly card, don't you think?


I also added some black splatters with my Licorice Liquid Watercolors. I adhered the butterflies down just in the centers with liquid adhesive, and once they dried I could curl the edges up slightly for extra dimension. I then added some sparkly Nuvo glitter drops on the butterflies, and some Crystal Glaze on the larger word in the sentiment. These just added an extra touch of dimension and sparkle to the card!
