Pinkfresh Studio has released 11 stamps sets including two background cling stamps with removable elements, 7 Stand alone Cuts and coordinating dies.The new designs are all so gorgeous and unique! Check out all the new items on Pinkfresh Studio blog!
I’ve made four cards to showcase the brand new items. Let’s get started.
My first card is featuring Ornate Floral Stand alone die. It is a coverplate die with large floral elements.
I cut the Ornate Floral once from a watercolor paper panel and two more times from heavyweight white cardstock. I left the die cut pieces cut from the watercolor paper still stuck together and colored it using Pinkfresh Studio Liquid Watercolors. For the flower I used Bubble Gum and the leaves were colored in Licorice and Sapphire.
As a darker background I chose a dark gray cardbase and splattered white opaque ink on it. After the ink was dry I glued the watercolor die cut piece without the flower petals and the background portion on it. I added two more layers of the outline that was cut from the white cardstock to it. I curled up the petals and glued only the base of them into the places.
I splattered white opaque ink all over the whole panel and sprayed shimmer spray on it for some sparkle.
The sentiment was stamped using Layered Script Words, another awesome new design in a calligraphic style, which you can stamp in three colors. I used Bubble Gum, Rocky Slope and Licorice. I cut it using the detailed coordinating die. I cut the detail cut three more times from some white cardstock and cut one shadow shape to layer them up for some dimension. To finish off I added a few light pink and pink Jewels to the center of the flowers.
The second card is a slimline card which is showing some of the new items. The main floral cluster is from Modern Layered Floral stamp set, the background was created with the Chevron background stamp and the sentiment is from Simply Sentiments – You stamp set. I also added a bow made using the Artistic Bows die set.
First I created the background. I chose light pastel hue of four cheerful Spring colors, Meadow, Ocean Breeze, Coral Reef and Lemon Whip. The Chevron background stamp has removable elements so that you can stamp the single patterns separately. I stamped the chevron pattern on the top and bottom end of a slimline-sized white cardstock panel and cut it using Slim diagonal stitched rectangles die set. I foam mounted the background panel on a white slimline cardbase.
Modern Layered Floral image was stamped in Coral Reef, Raspberry Bliss, Sweet Mustard, Emerald City and Key Lime and cut using the coordinating die. I glued the lower part of the floral cluster on the background and adhered the upper part using some foam tapes. I cut a bow using Artistic Bow die from some yellow cardstock and added it to the bouquet.
For the sentiment I used the same colors I used for the background. “you” from Simply Sentiments – You set was stamped in Ocean Breeze and Meadow in an ombre fashion. The small sentiments were white heat embossed on strips of white cardstock. I ink blended them in Lemon Whip and Coral Reef respectively. I added some light blue and yellow Crystals and the card was finished.
Next up is the card made using Take Pride stamp set.
I gold heat embossed the Take Pride image on a watercolor paper, colored it using Pinkfresh Studio Liquid Watercolors and cut it with the coordinating die. I used the center circle to add the sentiment which I gold heat embossed. The small sentiment from the same set was stamped in Metropolis.
For the background I used a patterned paper from My Favorite Story 6×6 paper pack. I cut it using Diagonal Stitched Rectangles die and foam mounted it on a gray cardbase.Jewels.
The last card for today is featuring Believe in Yourself stamp set. It includes outline images and solid elements with which you can fill in the outline image. I used only the outline and colored the floral clusters.
I stamped the Believe in Yourself image two times on a watercolour paper panel in Peach Fuzz to do no line watercoloring. I used Pinkfresh Studio Liquid watercolors. I keep the flowers in yellow, orange and red color scheme. After the coloring was done, I cut the images with the coordinating die and set them aside.
To create the background I white heat embossed the Diamond Tiles cling background stamp on a white cardstock panel and ink blended the perimeter in Lemon Whip, Sunshine and Clementine. I cut the background panel using Stitched Rectangles die, foam mounted it on a cream cardbase and added the colored floral clusters to the diagonal corners using some foam tapes.
The sentiment from the same set was stamped in Gathered Twigs. I cut the “Believe” using the shadow layer of the coordinating die set. The small sentiment was white heat embossed on a strip of white cardstock. I ink blended it in Gathered twigs. After adding the sentiments to the card I scattered some yellow and orange Crystals to finish off the card.That’s it from my side for today! I hope I was able to show you the unique beauty of the new items and inspire you with my cards! GIVEAWAYS
