Hello and welcome to Pinkfresh Studio November Essentials Die Release Blog Hop!

If you arrived here from Nichol Spohr’s blog, you’re right on track. If you are lost on the way or want to start over from the beginning of the hop, please head on over to Pinkfresh Studio blog

Pinkfresh Studio is celebrating November 2020 Essentials Die Release with our team members and amazing guests! Eleven new Essentials die sets are debuting today! As always they are so unique and versatile that they will be a great addition to your die collection!

I’ve made three cards to share with you for this blog hop. Without further ado let’s get started!

The first card is a holiday card in traditional red which is showing the new Diagonal Stitched Circles die set.


I started off by gold heat embossing the Winterberry Background cling stamp on Neenah solar white cardstock. I cut out a circle from the center of the panel using the smallest die from the Diagonal Stitched Circles and ink blended the panel in Coral Reef, Berrylicious and Regal Kiss making it darker towards the border. I colored the image on the die cut circle with Stabilo pens, the berries in red and the leaves in blue.


I mounted the ink blended background panel on a white cardbase and adhered a diagonal stitched circle in navy onto the center of the card. A strip of gold vellum was added to the card and the colored circle piece on it. The sentiment is from Merry Days set. I white heat embossed it on a strip of dark red cardstock, cut it into a banner and adhered it on the circle using foam tape.


To finish off the card I filled the berries with Shimmer Pico embellisher and scattered a few clear Crystals to the background.


The next card is a slimline holiday card. It is showcasing the Slim Stitches die and Diagonal Stitched Circles die set from this release. The festive images are from Pop Out Folk Christmas cling stamp.


First I gold heat embossed the Pop Out Folk Christmas cling stamp on an Almond Cream cardstock, colored the images using Polychromos colored pencils and cut them using the coordinating die.


I then cut a slimline sized panel using the Slim Stitches die from the same Almond Cream cardstock and cut two circles from it using two circle dies from Diagonal Stitched Circles die set as shown in the picture. I masked the border of a white slimline cardbase and ink blended it in Coral Reef, Slumber, Sky Blue and Candy Violet so that the ink blended areas are peeking through the circle windows of the front panel. I splattered white ink on it and let the cardbase dry.


I foam mounted the front panel on the cardbase and added the white frames to the circle windows which were cut using the Diagonal Stitched Circles die. Next I arranged the small images from Pop Out Folk Christmas set on the card as shown in the picture and added the sentiment from Our Home to Yours stamp set to the card. Some light brown Jewels were my finishing touch.


The last card for today is featuring the Fancy Oval Frame die and the Nested Chevron die which coordinates with the Pop Out Nested Chevron background stamp. As my floral elements I used the Celebrate Ephemera pack.


I started by stamping the Pop Out Nested Chevron on a A2 sized panel in Fresh Pear, Lemon Whip, Ballet Slipper, Coral Reef and Apricot. I then cut the panel using the Nested Chevron die.


I adhered the thin chevrons flat on a white cardbase and foam mounted the wide chevrons. I cut the Nested Chevron one more time from a shimmer cardstock to cover the yellow and green chevron patterns with the shimmer ones.


I cut three Fancy Oval Frames from white cardstock and once from the shimmer cardstock. I stacked them together for some dimension and added it to the card. I picked some floral images and the sentiment from the Celebrate Ephemera pack and arranged them on the frame.

I finished off the card with five soft pink Jewels.
