Hello and welcome to Pinkfresh Studio April 2023 Stamp, Die, Stencil and Hot Foil Release Blog Hop !!!

If you arrived here from the Nichol Spohr’s Blog, you’re right on track. If not, please head on over to the Pinkfresh Studio Card blog to get all the information about the full release and to start the blog hop!

It’s release day at Pinkfresh Studio! This one is a very special Release, as Pinkfresh Studio is celebrating 9 years in the crafting business! This release is full of new items which are based around celebration! You will find lots of celebration-themed images, fun die sets and sentiments!

My card is showcasing the Ribbons and Balloons product suite with stamp, stencil and coordinating die sets, and the fun Wrap Around Elements die set from this release!


I started off by heat embossing the balloon bunch image in silver two times on some Neenah solar white paper. I then stenciled the balloons and the decorating flowers and ribbons in soft pastel colors. I used Sunshine, Apricot, Sparkling Rose, Sky Blue and Grassy Knoll to stencil the balloons. I stenciled the two toned ribbons in Apricot and Sparkling Rose and also the flowers in the same colors.

After the stenciling was done I cut them using the coordinating die.


To create the background I watercolored the top and bottom parts of a slimline sized Mixed media paper panel in light green and light blue and ink blended the edge of the watercolored part in Grassy Knoll and Sky Blue respectively. Next I cut the panel using the Slim Diagonal Stitched Rectangles die and adhered it on a white slimline cardbase.


I cut several white decorative streamers using the dies from the Wrap Around Elements die set and adhered them on the background as shown in the picture.

I then foam mounted the balloon bunches on the card and added the sentiment which is also from the Ribbons and Balloons set. The coordinating die set includes three dies for the large sentiments from the set !

I finished off this birthday card with some Aqua and Leaf Glitter Drops.
