Pinkfresh Studio November 2022 Stamp, Die, Stencil, and Hot Foil Release

 Good morning! Today is the blog hop to celebrate Pinkfresh Studio's November 2022 Stamp, Die, Stencil, and Hot Foil Release! You aren't going to want to miss a stop along the way - TONS of inspiration and prizes up for grabs! YAY! You can find links to all of the new release items I used on today's cards at the bottom of this post!

As usual, I have a few cards to share with you today!

First up I have this card that features several sets from this new release!

I started off by hot foiling the new Geo Leaf hot foil plate in satin hot foil, and then I ink blended the layers using the colors on the packaging mock up. I used Ballet Slipper, Coral Reef, Apricot, and Ocean Breeze.

I die cut that panel, and popped it up with thin foam tape on a light peach cardbase for a touch of warm contrast.

Next, I heat embossed the pretty floral from With Sympathy in white on vellum, and die cut it with the coordinating die.

I hot foiled the word "mother's" from Phrase Builder Happy, then carefully fussy cut off the apostrophe and the "s" to make the word just say "mother". Isn't that a fun way to stretch your supplies?!?

I stamped secondary sentiments from You're the Best in detail black to create my own custom sentiment. I used tiny bits of liquid glue to adhere the vellum florals, and then added the sentiments with foam adhesive.

Finally, I added a few Champagne Glitter Drops to finish these off!

Next up, you may recognize this same floral, but with a different look for this card!

This time I hot foiled the flower cluster using the With Sympathy hot foil plate, then colored it in with the coordinating layering stencils. I used a soft color combo of Coral Reef, Passion Fruit, Slumber, Sweet Mustard, Fresh Pear, and Olive.

For the background, I added some texture by using the new Modern Design Blocks hot foil plate to add some texture, then used the leftover ink on my blue blending brush to add a touch of color to the upper portion.

I die cut an Ornate Oval frame, and popped it up with foam on my background.

Then, I tucked that floral in the center, and popped it up with foam adhesive.

I love all the sentiments in this set - not only are they wonderful for sympathy cards, but I love that the coordinating die set has a die for each of those sentiments. Makes them so much more useful!

And check out the foiling on the flowers - so hard to capture in photos, but isn't it pretty?!?

I also love all the dimension and texture on this card, but without it being too busy either.

Finally, I mounted on a coordinating blue cardbase, and added a few of those Champagne Glitter Drops to finish off!

And next up, a card using one of the release supplies in a bit of a different way!

For the background, I used the same Overlapping Geo Leaf die from the first card, but this time without the coordinating hot foil plate or stencils. And before I die cut it, I die cut the the Hexagon Tiles coverplate from the panel of cardstock. So I ended up with a fun geometric background with some fun background texture!

Next up, I wanted to use the florals from You're the Best in a nice soft delicate way, so I heat embossed them in white on white cardstock, and added color with the layering stencils. I used Ballet Slipper, Coral Reef, Apricot, Ocean Breeze, and Aquamarine.

I die cut those with the coordinating dies, then got ready to arrange them on my card.

In the spirit of not wasting things, I also used the leftover oval from the inside of the Ornate Oval die on the previous card. This gave me a great place to tuck the florals around and give a focal point for the sentiment.

I mounted the background with foam tape, and then adhered the oval down directly over the top of it. Florals I adhered with liquid glue, curling up the edges for dimension.

I used one of the great sentiments from With Sympathy stamp set, stamped in Detail Black and die cut with it's coordinating die. And of course mounted with tiny bits of foam adhesive.

And of course, we know there had to be a few Glitter Drops added as well, right? Champagne again for the win!

I think it is hard to fully capture in the photos, but these florals are so pretty and ethereal!

And of course, could this sentiment be any more perfect for a sympathy card? All the feels...

Now moving on from all the girly cards and pink, I also love how some of the products in this release are perfect for more masculine designs!

For this one, I featured the new Quadrant Backdrop set. I foiled it in an unusual for me color - Viridian Green - and then set about stenciling in with the layering stencils in a fun masculine color combo. I used Sweet Mustard, Peach Fuzz, Aquamarine, and Persimmon.

Once that was done, I die cut it with the coordinating die, which allows the details to shine through and give great dimension when popped up on your cardbase!

The sentiment was created with the Phrase Builders: Happy hot foil set. I foiled the 3 large words using soft blue foil, then foiled the reverse using the Solid Hot Foil plate. I actually ended up using the reverse foiled ones on this design!

It felt like it needed something to complete it, so I grabbed the sentiment from You're the Best, and heat embossed it in white on a tiny coordinating aqua heart die cut using Shaker Hearts die.

I popped the sentiment all up with foam adhesive, nestling the little heart with the secondary sentiment in between the last two sentiments. Doesn't it fit perfectly?

Finally, I grabbed some coordinating glitter drops in Jade, Aqua, and Butterscotch, and sprinkled those around my design. I tried to plan strategically based on the color I was placing them on, to keep the contrast just right. For example, no aqua on the aqua sections, etc...

What do you think? Isn't this a fun design for Father's Day? And it's never too early to get started, right?

Whew! If you made it all the way through those cards - congratulations! If you just skimmed the photos quickly, I don't blame you. I just add all the details and info for those that want it, and it's always there as a reference. :)
