Thank You House - Pinkfresh Studio Instagram Release Hop

 Hello! Today I am part of a fun Instagram hop to celebrate the new Pinkfresh Studio release! I have had so much fun creating with this release - yesterday was the blog hop, and I shared tons of cards for that! The card I'm sharing today I created on last week's YouTube live for Pinkfresh Studio as a sneak peek - you can watch that video HERE if you want to see more details!

If you watched the live, you may notice I changed a couple things! In the live I skipped stamping the border on the house, and the "thank you" was stamped in black. Once I finished, I felt like the house just didn't pop enough, so I redid it and added the black outline, adhering it over the top of the first one. I still didn't love that, the more I looked at it, so I went to work one more time and did it with gold heat embossing - and that was the magical look it needed! Of course, I had to switch out the sentiment to match. But I LOVE how it turned out with those changes! Sometimes, you just can't be afraid to change out what you don't love!

I just adore that Built on Dreams layering stencil, stamp, and die set! So pretty and unique! I did a nice soft color combo that was so fun to work with!

I wanted to create a slimline card with this set - which was a bit tricky, but it felt like the Cloud Builder stencil was the perfect way to fill that extra space! I used the same colors I stenciled the house image with - and I think it couldn't be a more magical sky!

The main frame was die cut with the new Essentials Blanket Stitch Slimine and Mini Slimline die set - and mounted on an aqua 4" x 9" cardbase. Then I mounted the finished house over the top. Another change I made after the live was to add a bit of sparkle with some clear Nuvo Blizzard Glitter Drops. It was the perfect touch of sparkle and dimension!

Large sentiment from the Built on Dreams set (love that it has a coordinating die as well!), and the secondary sentiment is from a fabulous new sentiment set called Always Uplifting - full of encouraging sentiments. A few of the new Sparkling Champagne Metallic Pearls are the perfect finishing touch!
