Double Cuts with Pinkfresh Studio Dies

Good morning, Friends! It's my Birthday today! To celebrate, I'm sharing a little post over on the Pinkfresh blog, with some girly, frilly designs! I've mixed up a heap of pretty things from the the latest release, as well as releases past, so come along, and let's have some fun!

This little design was a happy accident.
While playing with the pretty Geo Floral die from Pinkfresh, I completely forgot to add my shim, which on an intricate design like this, meant that much of the design was imprinted, but not fully cut. What's a girl to do, but just go with the flow ;)
To save the day, I used the Inverted Stitched Scalloped Circle dies to cut out the center and only popped out a few of the little pieces around the edges. 

I layered my overlay onto a soft mint cardstock, and added a little acetate design to back the scalloped opening. To the top, I added a gummy rose, some string, and pretty jewels all around the circle opening.

In the center of the card, I added some puffy stickers from the Joyful Day collection, along with some puffy alphas

At the bottom, a sweet little heart from the Everyday Musings collection.

I ended up liking this look so much, I made another card in the same style. This time around a few more of the pieces came out, which was fine by me. I really like this organic look, and think it makes for just the prettiest background. Both of these cards have also come in very handy with a couple of very special anniversaries around the corner ;)

To decorate this card, I used some more puffies from the Joyful Day collection, and a pretty tulle bow and button combo.

This time, I used the off-white jewels, as well as a little arrow sticker.

I used the lovely puffy words from the Joyful Day collection, a little button, and some more mini alphas. You'll also notice it looks like there are specks in the scalloped opening - this is again another acetate design.

For my last design, I opted for a shim so that all the itty bits would pop out. I still used the scalloped circle to cut out the middle, and added a heap of puffy stars and jewels to go with the theme  of my card. 

I layered up a heap of gold and pink accents, to create some dimension and sparkle.

I love, love, love the beautiful puffies from every Pinkfresh release. There is something so special and sweet about them. Whenever I add them to a project, they instantly elevate the look with just the right amount of dimension and texture. So pretty!

For my last creation, I used some of the newest goodies from the recent Essentials release.

I started with the Braided Tag  to create my bases. I love that this tag size is big enough to act as a card base, or can be used to make larger tags. I combined all the different accent cuts, and I love how pretty they look when backed with white cardstock!

At the top of my tags, I used the Lacey Edgers to add a decorative trim. Just underneath the rose and lace trim, I added a little hex tag, cut with the Basic Label Frames dies, stamped with the Abstract Builder sentiments. Just below the rose, I added a vellum accent, stamped with the Bloom set, heat-embossed in white.

I used the Basic Label Frames to cut the oval insert, and a sentiment die-cut from the Classic Words set. I added a few jewels and crystals, and some Nuvo Drops to finish things off.

These cards were so fun to make!
