Pinkfresh Studio January Release Blog Hop

Hello Friends and welcome to the big Pinkfresh Studio release party!
We're so excited that you're here. If you have just stumbled upon this hop, you can go here to start from the beginning. Or you can follow the handy link list I've included at the end of this post. If you're hopping with us already and you've arrived here from Heather's blog, you're in the right place.

There is so much in store - heaps of very talented guest designers hopping on board this month, as well as gorgeous project ideas from the team, and some big giveaways!

But first, you can see all of the amazing NEW goodies HERE!


And before I get to allllll of that, I hope you will all take a teensy moment while on Lea's blog to wish her a Happy Birthday today!!! Lea is not only a remarkable artist, but the sweetest, kindest person and our fearless and spectacular team leader! Lea - I hope your Birthday is filled with happiness, joy and so much love!

For my cards today I wanted to try something fun! Have you noticed that  all of the Pinkfresh Studio sets have a delightful (and helpful) graphic on the back? I thought the beautiful Embroidered Blossoms stamp set would be just the perfect set to try these pretty design guides, as there are soooo many beautiful bitty bits and upon opening the dies and stamps, I needed just a minute to figure out which goes with which. But using the helpful graphic on the back made the whole thing a breeze!


I started out by stamping a pile of flowers and leaves, following each floral cluster design shown on the back. I did my best to match up the inks, so it would be easy for me to tell each bit apart.
I then matched the dies with the stamped designs, and ran the whole stamped cardstock through my die-cutting machine. Before I knew it, I had a pile of pretties to use!


I was able to make four beautiful and easy cards using the bundle of cuts.


Aren't these florals stunning? I simply can't get enough of them.


For each card, I partly used the guide on the back of the stamps, but also sort of did my own thing, adding to the designs.


 And I'm now super familiar with all the shapes so I can make new blooms in no time. If you struggle with figuring out new stamp and die sets, this is a fabulous way to get acquainted with all of your newly added goodies.


For all the cards I used the beautiful Embroidered Blossoms stamp and die set. and for the sentiments I used the gorgeous Scripted Bold Sentiments 1 and Scripted Bold Sentiments 2 stamp sets. I think these are the prettiest sentiment stamps I've ever inked up.


These two sets pair so perfectly with the Embroidered Blossoms designs. I feel this gorgeous font gives the stitched florals such a modern twist, what do you think?


I also added a few Nuvo drops and some sparkly rhinestones to give the cards a bit of dimension.


For my next card, I used a slightly different palette, also inspired by the back-of-stamp designs.


I just love this color combo! It reminds me of fine French tapestries, and with the vellum sentiment, it becomes a much more ethereal look.


I found that the Scripted Bold Sentiments stamped super well on vellum, and due to their size, they were a perfect candidate for fussy cutting.


For my last card, I gathered all the leftover bits and added another sweet sentiment from the Scripted Bold Sentiments 2 set. I love that both of these stamp sets come with large fonts as well as bitty fonts. It makes for two very versatile additions.


I also added a few little blooms from the Make a Wish stamp and die set.

And just a dash of sparkle!


I hope you will have just as much fun with these stamp sets as I did! Also I have a heap of cards still coming your way in the next couple of weeks, featuring a whole lotta more of this release!

Now onto some more fun :)
