Thank You - Pinkfresh Studio | Delicate Series



Hello and happy Sunday! Today I have a super quick post on some sweet ingredients I love to use when making my delicate cards. Over the past few months, I've developed a love for Clean and Simple cards, but from time to time, I love to dip back to my favorite style of all, which is a bit more layered and intricate. But that doesn't mean it has to be complicated or hard to do, so I'm here to share my quick tips on how to achieve this look without a whole lot of effort.


My little tag today is a good example of an easy to way to get started with the delicate look. 
One of the best tips I can give is to round up products that gives off a feminine vibe. The resulting project will inevitably give off that same quality, and it can be a fool-proof way to dip your toes into this genre. Here, I've used the gorgeous new Pinkfresh Classic Tags with Fillable Elements, because I was able to add intricate cuts to the inside of the tag, that give this project an instant feminine feel.

TIP
If you do not have intricate dies, no problem! It's just as easy to use stencils, papers or edge punches to dress things up. Stamps can also work wonders. Anything with a lace-y romantic feel will work wonderfully. Also don't shy away from hearts, feminine geometric patterns or soft scallops.

If I feel like my project is not soft or delicate enough, one trick that always helps is a shabby, flouncy bow. I make my own ribbon by dying seam binding, but you could just as easily purchase it pre-tinted.


Next up is color...I tend to focus on soft, pastel or vintage hues for this style. But that doesn't mean that darker colors don't work as well. The key is balance, and using less darker colors overall. I associate delicate things with softness, so that is what I try to stick to, but if you associate it with something else, who's to say what can work! Here I've used soft-toned papers from the Pinkfresh Joyful Day collection. Paired with the gorgeous Classic Words dies (which just so happen to have a feminine, scripty vibe), this tag is well on its way to sweetness!


I also think florals of any sort work really well with this style, as well as sequins, rhinestones, and anything else that sparkles. At this point, I would likely add in a few more touches, such as rhinestones on each of the little die-cut background florals, but I decided to leave things as is to show how easy it would be create a simple canvas that can be dressed up, or look just as cute dressed down. And with just a few switches, this could just as easily be a less girly tag, by removing the ribbon, the intricate inlay cuts and swapping in some more graphic colors.


I hope today's tag inspires you to dig into your heart (and your supplies) and pull out all the girly, frilly things, and make something soft and sweet.
