Pinkfresh Studio May Essentials Blog Hop

Thanks for stopping in for the Pinkfresh May Essentials Release! 
If you are joining along for the hop, you should have arrived here from the very sweet + talented Heather, or if you're just tuning in, you can pop over to the Pinkfresh Blog to start from the beginning. I've also included your next stop at the end of this post :)


For my cards today, I focused on the Fancy Label Frames. I couldn't resist some of the other goodies from this release, so I've sprinkled them in as well ;)
For my first card, I wanted to use the beautiful new rhinestones. Aren't they sooo pretty?! I love that the iridescent finish makes them easy to pair with all sorts of colors. Even though the set comes with 12 hues (which is a lot!), it really feels like you get many more because each color takes on so many sparkly variations. 


To start my card today, I used the Fancy Label Frames to cut a window out of my peach card base. I embossed and colored up the gorgeous Blooming Bouquet florals (I looove this set so much!) using Copic hues. 


I tucked the floral into the window, and added a matted label for my sentiment. 
I really like that this set of label dies comes in nesting sizes, which makes it really easy to mat labels, or make sweet little frames and shakers. 


All around the card, I scattered the gorgeous jewels, along with some Nuvo drops.
I loooove how sparkly this card is irl!


I finished things off with a border from the Lacy Edgers set, and the sentiment from the Folk Hummingbird set. I used two ink shades to color block the words in fresh spring hues.


From the moment I saw the Hanging Floral stamp set, I've been itching to make a shaker with it, and thought that the sweet crystals would make a perfect filling!


So I mixed them up with some paper confetti (made with fringing shears - shared by Amy from TSM) and a heap of iridescent glitter.


These crystals are the sweetest mix of colors and sparkle so beautifully!


I then colored up the little florals using Copic markers, and made my shaker. In retrospect, stacking up several wreaths might have worked better with this detailed design, rather than opting for foamies. It doesn't look amazing from the side view, but it does the trick!


At the bottom of my card, I used the Lacy Edgers die, and the Partial Cut Bouquet and Bow accented with some 'paint swipes' from the Abstract Builder stamp set. I used the second design of Fancy Label Frames for my matted label, stamped with the Hanging Florals sentiment.


For my last card, I used the Fancy Label Frames to cut three labels, which I used to split up this sweet My Favorite Things to Say sentiment.


To decorate the little frames, I used the Embroidered Blossoms stamp and die set. 


I added some spotty accents using the Abstract Builder stamp set, and some sparkly rhinestones. You can't tell here, but the black rhinestones might be my favorite! They sparkle a gorgeous blue when moved about. Even though I don't use black often, I love these rhinestones so much.


That's all for me today, friends! Each of the dies are so very beautiful and I hope you'll continue on to see what the rest of team has in store for you!
