Pinkfresh Studio December 2021 Stamp, Die, Stencil, and Hot Foil Release

 Good morning! Today is an amazing blog hop to celebrate Pinkfresh Studio's December Stamp, Die, Stencil, and Hot Foil Release! There are so many fun items in this release - washi, stamps, dies, hot foil - so much fun! You aren't going to want to miss a stop along the way - TONS of inspiration and prizes up for grabs! YAY!


You may recognize some of the items from this release - most of them were included in our Create and Connect event in November - so if you are looking for new inspiration with this release, or didn't join the event and have been excited to get your hands on some of the new items - now is your chance!


There is one new item in this release that has never been seen - and it is one of my favorites! The Heart Grid hot foil plate is so pretty - and pretty much the inspiration around which the rest of this card just kind of happened! I knew it would be a perfect fit with the Shaker Heart dies to create a window with it peeking behind.


I also used several of the die cut blooms from the new washi tape - In the Meadow. LOVE the gorgeous color on this, and those little extra leaves are everything! I tucked some under the inside of the heart, and a few around the outside - some doing a bit of both.


Created a frame for the front using Blanket Stitched Rectangles and the plain die from Folk Edge Rectangles to turn it into a frame instead of a rectangle. I popped that up with foam adhesive.


Sentiment is a great one from Built on Dreams stamp set, and I love that the coordinating die also cuts out the two large words in the stamp set. And that font!


A few of the new Sparkling Champagne metallic Pearls are the perfect finishing touch to round out the gold touches on this card!


Definitely my favorite card of this release - right here!


Next up - more hot foiling, and using some of the leftover pieces from the last card as well!


Recognize that heart and gold rectangle? Yep...they are extra from the last card! I thought they were perfect layered over the hot foiled piece from Lush Vines hot foil plate. This one is particularly gorgeous dry embossed as well - but it was fun to finally get some foil on it as well!


Those blooms are part of the same set as the last card - only for these, I used the In the Meadow stamp, layering stencils, and coordinating dies to try a totally different color combo! So fun to be able to get a very different look!


Sentiment on this one is from Always Uplifting Stamp set - a great new sentiment set full of encouraging sentiments. Who doesn't need those all the time?


I heat embossed that sentiment on black cardstock, then hand trimmed to a banner shape to tuck between those blooms over the heart. A few more of those Sparkling Champagne metallic pearls on this one as well!


I added some subtle layers to this card for dimension using scraps of cardstock. The main panel is popped with foam off my cream cardbase, then the other layers have those cardstock layers to help them pop just a bit, without being TOO thick and dimensional.


And then - another favorite set from this release! The gorgeous Citrus Bloom stamp set - love it so much!


The coordinating layering stencil set has a total of 7 stencils - the most we've ever done at Pinkfresh, and they are all totally worth it. :) I did a nice and soft traditional color combo for my card.


I used another one of those frames like the first card using the Blanket Stitch Rectangles with the plain rectangle from Folk Edge Rectangles. I also used the largest Folk Edge rectangle for my base layer - love how these two work together!


Once I layered all the blooms on there, I felt like it needed a bit more texture, so I added several Leafy Branches die cut from white cardstock and tucked in and around.


Sentiment is from the Always Uplifting stamp set again - stamped in Detail Black at an angle inside the frame.


To keep the detail around the front die cut piece of the card, I trimmed my cardbase to be slightly smaller than the card front. A good trick to let that border really shine!


And of course - more of those Sparkling Champagne metallic pearls to finish off!


Finally - I'll be sharing this card for tomorrow's Instagram hop, I created it live last week for YouTube live as a sneak peek. I did change a couple things for the live, and I love this so much more now - can't wait to share it all with you, so make sure and check Instagram tomorrow for that hop, as well as more giveaways!
